About Jim and Jinny Richardson

Jim and I retired here to the Cape in 2000 from New Jersey. Jim was a lawyer and I was a stay at home mom to our five children. Jim's fondness for woodworking and my desire to have an old seashore home lead us to the purchase of the house. A much bigger project than we could have imagined. It has been a challenge to say the least. Our latest project was doing the little Studio apartment. Had fun and from what people have told us, worthwhile.

Why Jim and Jinny Richardson chose Orleans

We are within walking distance to the town for shopping, the bike trail, and 2 bay beaches--Rock Harbor and Skaket Beach. Nauset Beach is on the other side of town but well worth the drive. Many nice places to eat right up the road. Shaws, Stop and Shop and Friends Market all in town.

What makes this studio unique

There is a nice little deck off the back of the Studio overlooking the backyard and pond-home to many birds, turtles and fish. A Blue Heron lives here and maintains his domain. Parking is provided in the upper driveway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place ,great location, will recommend to anyone

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this place ! It is quiet,close to everything even walked to town for farmers market . Went down the street to rock harbor at low tide and walked out to see oysters being harvested it was very interesting . also went to first encounter beach it was wonderful. Took rides to outer cape to see the cape cod national seashore best place and beaches we have seen. Back at the cottage we really liked the two chairs down by the pond very nice,saw humming birds,very large blue herring in a tree things we don't get to see often. Loved sitting on deck with glass of wine very relaxing.


Thanks to Jim and Jinny wonderful hosts

great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Jinny and Jim are great hosts. A wonderful apartment close to everything you need. A private deck and even a view of the pond in the back. Fully kitted kitchen and very quiet. Always a pleasure to stay here.

Cute and cozy studio

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent two weeks in this well equipped cute studio. The hosts were gracious when the refrigerator broke down and by thw evening a new working refrigerator was in place. Wonderful view from the lovely deck. So centrally located. All in all a lovely experience.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I had a great two weeks at Jim and Jinny's. A super comfortable stay in the middle of winter and it felt like a home away from home. Everything you need as far as kitchen, internet, tv, etc, and the bed was super comfortable. Wonderful hosts, I would certainly come back.

Cozy, charming, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment is extremely well appointed, with everything a vacationer needs to settle in and feel at home. It's a fine place to relax --on the back deck or in the back yard-- as well as a great jumping-off point for day trips around the Cape. We visited Nauset Beach, Truro Beach, and even Provincetown on different days, with driving times of 15 minutes to just under an hour. Plenty to see and do within walking distance as well.

The newly redecorated studio apartment was charming and quiet. Attention to every detail.

Attention to detail also describes homeowner's overall approach of providing information, supplies, and comfort for our stay.
