Enjoy beautiful Cape Cod in any season in “The Yellow Farmhouse,” our family friendly, historic landmark, beautifully restored and decorated, furnished with up-to-date amenities, air conditioned, with gas log fireplace, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home.
The general rule is: please treat our home with the same care you would your own. Pets will not be considered. Prefer arrivals from 3:00 pm on, and departures by 10:00 am. If more flexible times desired, please call to arrange, (our primary constraint is to be sure we have enough time to clean between rentals, but this can usually be worked out).
We hate "no's", but here they are: absolutely no smoking, no overnight persons in excess of number reserved (max. 6 persons), no excessive noise or loud music (our town has very strict noise ordinances), alcohol only in moderation, no illegal substances. If you wish to entertain a significant number of additional people, please consult us in advance, and generally permission will be granted. Park only in designated area.
Please use kitchen disposal for all vegetable, meat/fish/poultry wastes, but not bones. Upon departure, please leave house tidy: dishes and utensils washed; trash placed in provided containers; sheets and pillow cases (for any beds that were used) stripped and placed on beds; used towels should be left in bathtub. If any light bulbs need replacement or any other issues need to be addressed at any time, please advise ASAP.
