Osterville house description

Elf Hill cottage is comprised of two double bedrooms, a third bedroom with two twin beds and a daybed for a child, two full bathrooms, a living room, dining room and sun room. There is an automatic garage. The house has been freshly painted, has hardwood floors upstairs and down, and is charmingly furnished. A particularly wonderful aspect of the cottage is its spacious English-style garden. It is fenced-in for the peace of mind of parents of toddlers, and has a large outdoor shower. The hammock is the perfect spot for an afternoon nap or for reading whilst watching over children playing in the yard. The east-facing patio is a lovely spot for breakfast.

A pass allowing access to all public and private beaches in the area is included in the rental. Dowses Beach, a beautiful private beach with a cove on one side (perfect for small children) and the ocean on the other is five minutes down the road by car. Joshua’s Pond, a large fresh-water pond with a small sandy beach, is right around the corner. Elf Hill cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet Main Street, with its collection of wonderful restaurants, art galleries and tasteful clothing and gift shops, is a five-minute walk away.

A central, village location in Osterville is highly valued as many homes require a car for getting about. At Elf Hill, you could find yourself going for days without getting behind the steering wheel.

                  The village of Osterville is located on the south central coast of Cape Cod on Nantucket Sound. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful and desirable villages on the Cape, and is prized for its quaint Main Street, its beautiful New England architecture, and its picturesque, warm-water beaches and harbor.

                  Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy walking, running, biking, golfing, fishing, crabbing, oystering, kayaking, whale-watching and boating throughout the area, and there are myriad activities for children. Boston is about an hour and twenty minutes’ drive, and Hyannis, with its airport and ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, is ten minutes away.
