Idle Time Thanksgiving

We have been coming to Idle Time for 16 years and have become friends with Terri and Ed. Great hosts and an amazing house with spectacular views. Very comfortable house and you can sit in the sunroom and relax and read. The views are beautiful. So much to do, so little time. Thank you for our years of memories.

Idle Time is the Best!

This is my 9th or 10th year at Idle Time and I love it more every year! The view from the rear decks are incredible and the Mid-Cape location is just perfect. Terri and Ed are the best owners and friends anyone could ask for. Looking forward to next year's visit already.

Everything Expected

First trip to Cape Cod and enjoyed everything about it. Staying at Idle Time is a treat. Beautiful area and beautiful house with a perfect Cape Cod view! Location of home is perfect as it is about Mid Cape and close to everything in any direction - including ferries and whale watching. Owners are very nice and helpful. I really can’t imagine a better base for a Cape Cod vacation!

Another amazing stay at Idle Time!!!!

Once again the Jersey crew spent an amazing winter weekend at Idle Time in Feb. 2014. We cannot rave enough about this perfectly situated, peaceful sanctuary that melts away all the stress and tensions one may have accumulated over time. We choose to visit Idle Time in November and February for the past 14 or 1 5 years. I fell in love with the house from this website just from the pictures alone back years ago. Over these years we've developed a wonderful friendship with Terri and Ed, which we treasure. Don't waste a second thought about visiting the Cape and blissfully relaxing at Idle Time, a wonderful place to stay regardless of what time of the year you grace the Cape.

Our 10th visit to Idle Time in 11years!

The house is amazing, new construction upstairs is absolutely gorgeous-every detail taken into consideration. Views galore! Love the house, the relationship with Terri and Ed, and the fact that you can just relax! Thank you.
