Property description

This very cozy Cape Cod cottage is a fantastic vacation get-away! Its Hyannis location is the ideal spot for enjoying all that Cape Cod has to offer.

Built back in the 1930s as part of a group of homes known as 'Tiny Town', this quaint little house with its white wooden shingles and its green wooden storm shutters, puts one in mind of blissful retreat and relaxation. Upon stepping inside, the cottage's unique charm and welcoming decor embrace each visitor with warmth and delight. Original interior woodwork, solid core doors with wrought iron handles & latches, old-fashioned cabinetry with the same wrought iron fixtures, are reminiscent of a time when grandmothers baked from scratch and filled the house with the aroma of home cooked foods and desserts. Adding to the sweet appeal of 'Tiny Town's' cottage, are its low-ceilinged rooms and ever-so-slightly slanting floors.

This clean and comfortable little cottage is within walking distance to 3 sparkling beaches, the Hy-Line ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, the Kennedy Memorial, and Main Street, which offers numerous restaurants and shops appealing to a variety of individual tastes and preferences. Strolling along the docks is usually an adventure worth pursuing. Here visitors can enjoy watching the boat traffic, from fishing trawlers to sailboats, and from dinghies to sightseeing cruise vessels. Hungry guests can take pleasure in a fresh catch-of-the-day, tasty New England clam chowder, fried clams or steamers or a sumptuously gigantic lobster roll. It's all here at the inner harbor and, imagine this, just a short scenic walk from your vacation home get-away!

For those who might want to venture further from downtown Hyannis, and because this locale is so centrally located, visitors can easily enjoy day trips, exploring Dennis, Chatham, the National Seashore and on down to Provincetown. A ride along Route 6A, the Old King's Highway, is a real treat for those who love antiquing and gallery browsing. History buffs will enjoy the olde New England ambiance and gain a sense of the past while passing by homes and churches some of which date back to the 16 and 17 hundreds.

When R&R is the mode for the day, vacationers may just want to lay back and soak in the warmth of the sun and enjoy the sights and sounds of Gosnold Street, as this lovely residential neighborhood goes about its daily business. The wildlife of Snow's Creek, and the balmy breezes off Lewis Bay and Nantucket Sound, are just a couple of the delights visitors can take in, as they while away their time in the yard or on the deck of this homey, circa 1930, Cape Cod cottage of 'Tiny Town.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: My husband and I are retired school teachers and we actually reside across the street from our vacation rental cottage. Upon our retirement from education, we embarked on a new adventure. We turned our home into a small Bed & Breakfast. As innkeepers, we operate our B&B seasonally from May to October but we do live there year-round. We find it quite advantageous, both to ourselves and to our cottage renters, to live in such close proximity. The B&B and the cottage operate separately from one another.

Why the Owner Chose Hyannis:
My husband and I were fortunate enough to be able to purchase 'Nannie's Cottage' back in 1980 from my maternal grandmother's estate. As a child, I spent my summers with Nannie at her cottage on the Cape. My fondest memories are of those times with her, and with my cousins who lived year-round next door. When we became owners of 'Nannie's Cottage' it was almost like 'coming home'. My aunt still lives next door and my cousin owns her piece of Cape Cod on a neighboring street behind my aunt. Over the years we rented the cottage to a number of long-term renters who came to love the place almost as much as we do. At this point in time, we have decided that it is feasible for us to rent out 'Nannie's Cottage' on a short-term basis.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love Cape Cod!! We have lived here and we taught school here for over 30 years. No matter what the season, the Cape's serene and unique beauty is a treasure to behold. The light, the sky, the beaches, the bogs, the marshes, the ocean, the dunes, the wildlife and the air all speak to us. We look forward to sharing our piece of the Cape with others.
