My daughter was just married last weekend at Wychmere Beach Club and we stayed at Stepping Stones. It was one of many great decisions we made for the wedding. The house is gorgeous--large, very unique, homey, beautifully finished with modern amenities, in an ideal location and perfect for large or extended families. We had another family stay with us totaling 14 adults but we could have easily fit more. It served as the home base for many of the events surrounding the extended weekend and it was just so convenient being literally down the street from the venue. Perfect spot for taking pictures of the bridal party the morning of the wedding and to meet up after to enjoy the celebration. The owner Marilynn was very attentive to our needs and made the house extremely welcoming for us. Was a perfect compliment to a perfect wedding, highly highly recommended.
Our family(17) has stayed at both Stepping Stones and Pebbles for the past two years. Everyone and we mean everyone absolutely adores this place. It has been our most favorite vacation spot ever. Stepping Stones is beautiful, convenient, and comfortable. Marylynn, the owner, could not be more accommodating. The Kelleys
Perfect house and location for a large family to celebrate Wycheme Harbor wedding. The wedding party had pictures taken across the street in front of the harbor then walked across the street to Stepping Stones for some great pictures in the beautiful yard. Marylynn was terrific to coordinate our stay with and was most accomodating. Thankyou for sharing your home!
Plenty of space for group gatherings, yet areas for quite solitude. Our family of ten enjoyed this property centrally located on the Cape that provides easy access to everything we covered from Provincetown to Martha's Vineyard. Hope one day to return with grandchildren added, since two of our children were expecting on the trip. Thanks to the Clunes for sharing your beautiful home.
We are a group of several families with young children that stayed here Summer of 2017. Marylynne is the most gracious host possible - she showed us around, was incredibly forgiving of our crowd and children, and was extremely easy to communicate with leading up to and during our stay. She has a lovely home with a fantastic kitchen (great for cooking up big group meals) and gorgeous landscaping, giving the kids many areas in which to play outdoors. We also made use of Pebbles, the cottage on the grounds, which lets a family have some more privacy. It was a tad bit further from the beach than we'd hoped (would be fine for older kids and adults, ended up driving and dropping off some of the little ones) but there are plenty of strollers and bikes for you to use if necessary. It is a nice stroll into the town center as well. We could not have been more pleased with our stay - we made many great memories in that house and the backyard patio. Thanks to the Clunes for being wonderful to work with!
We had such a wonderful stay at the Stepping Stones house. It was great to have 14 of us under one roof. There was plenty of space for all of us. Everything was within walking distance. Thank you Marylynn for making our week so pleasurable.
This was the perfect venue for our family as we attended a wedding nearby. The grandchildren were able to play outside on the lovely grounds. We also walked to the beach and explored the seashore. It was nice having everyone in one place and in such a lovely home.
The house and cottage was very comfortable with plenty of room for a family of 12, and in a great location. Marylynn was excellent in her communications and recommendations for the area. We highly recommend!
We rented Stepping Stones and Pebbles for the week of our son's wedding. Our family and extended family members ranged in age from 16 to 100! The house was amazing and equipped with everything you can imagine! It was the perfect place for our family together.
We had a Large group staying in the house for a wedding and it was absolutely perfect for our group! We flew in from the Midwest and had no idea what to expect - it exceeded our expectations! Great location, very clean and had great kitchen space. The house made our vacation easy and memorable!
