Barnstable cottage description

Visit Cape Cod This Fall

Come see why FALL is a great time to visit... the crowds of summer have gone, the water is warm from the summer sun, and the weather is beautiful! It is harvest season - visit one of the many cranberry bogs, enjoy the natural beauty of the changing colors of the leaves, or celebrate the season with a fall festival. Enjoy a stroll through Barnstable village with a candlelit ghost or history tour. Pick the perfect pumpkin at the pumpkin patch or the nearby farms. Visit Cape Cod this Fall, you’ll be glad you did! See a few of the many fun fall happenings below...

As Seen in the OCTOBER 2011 issue of THIS OLD HOUSE MAGAZINE


Relax... you've found the perfect Cape Cod home away from home. Beautifully decorated, all-new interior. Super clean, comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 full bath home with central air conditioning includes spacious living room with sleep sofa, all on one floor. Enjoy family meals at the table in our custom designed kitchen, or have a snack at the kitchen island. If you'd rather not cook - that's OK too, have your lobster and ''chowdah'' cooked to go at Osterville Fish Too just up the road.

Better yet, have dinner with a view of the harbor at the Mattakeese Wharf - no need to take the car! Stroll down the street to one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod. Make sure to take in a sunset too - beach chairs and towels are here for you, just bring your own flip-flops. The house is also just steps to a beautiful saltwater marsh. Also the Mill Way Marina is just a block away - you can go on a charter boat or Whale Watch or just watch as the locals unload their 'catch of the day'.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: My husband Steve and I fell in love with the Cape many years ago. We found ourselves drawn back time after time, driving through the night with our two boys still in their pajamas in the back seat looking forward to the relaxing days by the beach we would spend together. Five years ago we decided to make Cape Cod our home. I am still discovering new and beautiful places, and smile when I drive along Route 6A past the rambling roses and hydrangeas bursting with blooms. I look forward to the changes that each new season brings. The long, lazy days of Summer... the color of the leaves in Fall and the crackling sound of the first fire in our fireplace. The beauty and tranquility of the first snowfall in winter, and waking up one morning after a long Spring rain and noticing that all is green again. We found our little cottage by the sea and spent the winter of 2010 designing and building our vision of the perfect Cape Cod get-away. Having rented before, we wanted to create a place where you could relax, unwind and enjoy from the minute you arrived. I hope you too will have many happy memories of sun-filled days and starlit nights and find as many reasons to fall in love with Cape Cod as we did!
