Located in East Orleans and providing 5 luxurious bedrooms, 4 spacious full baths, and the look and feel of a country farmhouse, this charming escape from reality will give up to 11 guests a grand adventure filled with love, fun, and comfort. Oh, and the crystal-clear pool that anchors the large and grassy backyard is sure to be where many of your most fun memories will be created! 

Remember When? 

Remember when homes used to be built to make a statement? Instead of plopping a bunch of cookie cutter homes in a row on the street, we would drive a distance, perhaps under a canopy of trees, waiting anxiously for that first glimpse of the structure that provides protection and warmth. Our Luxe On River property offers a throwback to those wonderful days, featuring a long gravel pathway that leads guests to the doorstep of this gray, white, and turquoise accented home sweet vacation home. A large and graceful covered veranda greets visitors, and when you step inside for the very first time, a sense of gentility, warmth, and welcoming will make you feel right at home! 

Natural stained wood floors meander through the spaces, keeping the rooms light and bright, even during the darkest hours of the night, and a large entry with a bench, coat hooks, and storage cubbies help keep the sand and the elements outside where they belong. Although this property represents all that is wonderful about the golden age of entertaining, the amenities are thoroughly modern. An office set up with two desks, a sofa topped in dove gray fabric, and a state-of-the-art television provides the ideal place to work from home, play video games, or just relax as you scroll through social media. (High-speed internet ensures that meetings or game playing will be virtually glitch free.) The outdoor hues are, however, echoed in the interiors, with the walls painted the same soft gray and the furnishings adding the turquoise accents, starting with the plush turquoise sectional that centers the open concept floor plan in the living room. Tongue and groove planked ceilings painted a crisp white, large skylights with the sun peeking through, and a wall of windows add to the beauty and warmth of the living room, and when you look up, a touch of whimsy can be found in the flapping of a dolphin tail swimming through a school of fish found anchored to the ceiling! A fireplace adds warmth and romance on a chilly summer night, and a built-in bookshelf adds more opportunities for fun and relaxation. 

The dining area of Luxe On River is tucked away in a windowed alcove, offering glass and wood doors that open into a solarium furnished with brightly cushioned patio furniture bringing the outside in. Blending modern amenities and farmhouse charm, the kitchen is truly the heart of the home! A large center island lined with cushioned wood barstools gives the kiddos a great place to enjoy a morning bowl of cereal, while stainless steel appliances and stone counters ensure that all your food needs will be luxuriously met! 

A secondary seating area, anchored with a plush velvety sectional in rich blue, is where you will also find the second television of the home, giving adults a great spot to watch movies while the children are finishing their homework in the front office. A large rec room offers another sectional, television, and a full-sized pool table ensures that your entertainment needs will be met on rainy days. A fitness room will help keep the pounds in check, and ANOTHER sitting area furnished with sectional and super-sized television makes it easy for multiple families to travel together and still maintain their own spaces! The bedrooms of Luxe are serene retreats, some offering en suite baths, others providing desk areas for more virtual meetings, and all providing easy ways to slide into slumber after a long day of Cape Cod play. 

Go Outside and Play 

When we were young, those four words were the last ones we wanted to hear, but on Cape Cod in Luxe on River, they will bring you great joy! A large fenced-in yard dominated by a crystal-clear pool and hot tub surrounded by chaise lounges entices guests to spend much of their vacation playing “at home,” as do cornhole games, an outdoor firepit, and a gas grill which will add the most delicious of flavors to your catch of the day. (The river is located just down the street, and the beaches of Orleans are close as well!) 

Every day will be a new adventure in comfort when you choose River on Luxe for your Cape Cod cottage. Reserve it today! 

The history of Cape Cod is a long and storied one, but that doesn’t mean that the vacation home you stay in has to have the same. Some of us just love that “new home smell” and our Pretty Picky Properties Stepping Stones Sanctuary 279-C  offers just that! Built in 2022 while retaining the historic look of Cape Cod, this 4 bedroom, 3 bath escape located in Chatham is 100 percent modern and sleek! Outside, traditional clapboard siding is still fresh and unweathered, the portico adds elegance while providing protection from the elements, and an attached two car garage gives the home the feel of a family home, and because Stepping Stones offers room for up to 8 people to live together in peace and harmony, very large families will enjoy their stay with us! This guide to one of our newest homes in Cape Cod will help you mark off the second most important item on your vacation planning list, the one titled “choose a place to stay!” 

The Unexpected 

Step inside this light filled space and discover that vacationing on historic Cape Cod can be filled with modern conveniences and stylish design as you follow the paths created by golden stained hardwood flooring into rooms that welcome and impress. As in the New England tradition, most rooms provide their own separate space, but there is still a feel of openness and connection, ensuring that no one will feel disconnected or lonely during their stay in Stepping Stones Sanctuary.  

Walls painted a soft gray provide the perfect backdrop to slipcovered sofas in white and nautical blue, while beach themed art and a state-of-the-art television add interest and color to the space. A fireplace adds romance and warmth, a built-in bar on the back wall is stocked with a wine chiller and built in bookshelves that surround the fireplace and the television mounted over the mantel offer shelves lined with art pieces and cabinets behind which hides more surprises.  

The dining room, situated just off the kitchen, invites guests to gather round its sleek wood table and play games, devour meals, or just relax with a cup of coffee before starting each day. Walk a few steps to the sleekly gorgeous and fully equipped kitchen where marble countertops, subway tiled backsplash, and chef quality appliances compete for attention with the view from the windows over the sink. A pot filler over the stove, an expansive breakfast bar fronted by comfortable bar stools, and a dishwasher hidden away behind white panels ensures that all your needs are met, but the view from the window ensures that the desires of your soul are met as well!  

Each of the 4 bedrooms provide comfort, style, and a little something extra that make them stand out, starting with the primary suite. A king bed with padded headboard is destined to provide happy dreams and deep sleep while the ensuite bath’s deep and jetted soaking tub will be the perfect lead in to that perfect sleep. A television offers a way to quiet the brain for those that desire a little extra nighttime entertainment. Queen beds anchor the spaces in the upstairs bedrooms, tucked away under quirky angles that mimic the look of old attic bedrooms while providing high ceilings that are much more practical, making it far less likely guests will bump their heads in the night! A second master bedroom on the second floor, a dorm style bedroom with 2 queen beds and a trundle, and views of the community from large windows that open to let the cool breezes in; these bedrooms are the perfect spots to retreat to after a long day of vacationing excitement.
