Brewster cottage description

Our home sits just 300 yards from Saints Landing and the Brewster Flats. The nearby beach was named for my great-grandfather who arrived in these parts in the 1850's -- our family has been here ever since.

The home is laid out with 2 bedrooms and a full bath at each end of the house (with the living room, dining room and kitchen in between) making it ideal for a large family or for two small families to share. It has many amenities both modern and rustic to make your time in Brewster the most relaxing and comfortable it can be.

Prior renters have remarked on how much they enjoyed the house, especially due to its easy proximity to the beach. Anyone new to this part of the Cape comments on the beauty of the Brewster Flats, whether they are walking out to the sandbars for fishing or clamming, or simply enjoying a cocktail while watching the sunset. I think you will find it one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Our Home: This house is our home; it is not part of some conglomerate of rental properties. My father built this house as a 2 BR cottage in 1946 back from WW2. It has undergone many renovations through the years including a renovation of the kitchen in 2009 that we did. We use it ourselves for 2-3 weeks every summer, as well as for off-season getaways. This means that it is more like staying with friends than with renting from a resort. It's homey, it's friendly, it's comfortable. We love it and make it a place we want to be. We hope you will find it that way as well.

The Brewster Flats: The nearest beach is Saints Landing, located less than 300 yards down the road to the right as you leave the driveway. The beach is named for my great-grandfather who was shipwrecked (as the legend goes) in Cape Cod Bay in the 1850’s. The Brewster Flats are famous as having the second longest tidal flats in the world (after the Bay of Fundy in Newfoundland). The Flats are beautiful to look at and a lot of fun to explore, especially for kids who can run, dig, chase hermit crabs, and swim in shallow water. In our opinion, Saints Landing has some of the most beautiful sunsets you will see anywhere as it one of the only places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun sink into the water.

Other local attractions: -- Brewster General Store – About a mile to the east on 6A. A wonderful place to wile away an hour or two, the store dates to the mid-nineteenth century and looks and feels like pre-WW2 general store.
-- Cape Cod Museum of Natural History – Located about a mile to the west on 6A. Educational source of all the local flora and fauna. Numerous nature trails adjacent.
-- Captains’ Golf Course – Brewster’s local municipal golf course. Two 18 hole courses. Winner of many awards.
-- Cape Cod National Seashore – Federally protected shoreline that runs pretty much the entire length of the outer Cape (the side that faces the Atlantic Ocean). Beautiful beaches, hiking trails, bike trails, natural habitats, lighthouses.
-- Whale Watching – Most boats sail out of Barnstable Harbor or Provincetown Harbor.

                          Brewster is a quiet town, primarily consisting of homes, B&B's and antique shops. It is known as the sea captain's town as many ship captains lived here in the 19th century, whose homes are still around. Our home's neighborhood is very near to the beach, with the majority of traffic being families walking to the beach. The beach here is known for the amazing Brewster Flats where the tide goes out well over a mile at low tide providing wonderful areas to walk, play and go fishing or clamming.

                          Other Activities: Clamming

                          Golf: The Captain Golf Course is a municipally-owned public golf course about 10 minutes from the house. It features two award-winning 18-hole layouts, with multiple elevation changes and beautiful maintained grounds. There are practice facilities as well as a full pro shop and 19th hole. Club rentals are available. Walking or riding is allowed.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: My wife and I 'bought' this home from my brothers after my father passed away. It had been built as a 2 BR cottage when my Dad came home from WWII. Our family has been on this street since the 1850's and the local beach is named for my great-grandfather. Now my wife and I use it for our own vacations with our two young children. Many of the families in the area have been here for multiple generations as well.
