I stayed here on my honeymoon many years ago, and have returned every year since then. I could roll out of bed, onto the deck, and into the water without walking 5 steps! Pleasant Bay is much calmer than the ocean, and is ideal for swimming, canoeing/kayaking, sailing, wind-surfing. There is a beautiful clean, sandy beach a five minute walk from the deck. My daughter, her husband, and their two little girls have stayed here many times, and plan to return this year. Chatham and Orleans are only a ten minute drive away. This is Cape Cod living at it's best!
