Property description

Charmingly preserved period cottage with commanding, unobstructed 180 degree views of the ocean upon arrival. Newly updated, this tidy, decorated small cottage has a rolling lawn down an exclusive beach just for your use and also backs onto the bike path with easy walk or bike into Woods Hole and Falmouth. You can also walk on the bike path directly to the Woods Hole ferry terminal so you won't have to pay for parking when you hop the ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket for the day.

Located on a private dirt road among high-end homes, you will wake to the sounds of the waves and the smell of salt air. Have your coffee or cocktail hour on the mahogany deck or stroll down barefoot to the beach and and sit in adirondack chairs to watch the sailboats and ferries while the kids swim in the water or stroll the beach searching for sea glass and shells to take home. You can also rent/bring ocean kayaks or sailboats and launch right from the cottage. When you are done at the beach for the day - take a hot outdoor shower and then grill your favorite seafood for a waterfront dinner on the deck, at the picnic table on the lawn or inside at the dining table with the large picture window overlooking the ocean.

This highly-rated and popular cottage has been renovated for modern comfort yet still has original 1920's Cape Cod charm and cottage details.

"Small Cottage" includes window AC, WIFI internet, cable, full kitchen, charcoal grill, washer/dryer, linens and towels included, outdoor shower, beach chairs, picnic table, working fireplace and deep bathtub ~ just about everything you need for a wonderful stay.

The cottage sleeps 4 comfortably but can sleep up to 6 max with 2 on a pull out couch.

Step back in time when extended families and friends gathered to enjoy long summers with swimming, sailing, clambakes and campfires on the beach.

Woods Hole is known the world over for cutting edge science - especially Marine biology and it is chock full of things to do in the summer for science- and ocean-lovers. There are free Friday MBL lectures all summer long given by renowned scientists that anyone can go. A terrific aquarium with a touch tank and two seals in an outside tank and a wonderful summer science school for kids that many generations of locals have sent their kids to. Many of those future scientists state that Woods Hole Children's School of Science http://childrensschoolofscience.org was the start in their interest in a career in sciences.

Quite a few of our renters have rented the cottage for three weeks just so their kids can go to the Children's School of Science - you can walk to the village of Woods Hole on the bike path - right near the cottage.
