A generation of memories!
We've relaxed at the cottage every summer for almost 20 years. It's been a constant in our four childrens' lives for as long as they can remember. Some of our happiest moments have been spent on and around the pond, and the nearby beaches. The picture windows in the enclosed porch allow you to wake up to the morning sun and watch the moon and stars pass overhead at night. I hope you will feel as blessed as we have while at this retreat from the busy-ness of life.

Our Favorite Vacation Cottage!
Our Favorite Vacation Cottage!
We have been vacationing at this lovely cottage for the last 24 years. It’s a charming place and it offers so much. It is on a very private large lot with woods, gardens, tree covered shaded areas and a picturesque pond and a dock perfect for a canoe, paddle boat or kayak. Large back porch sitting area with all glass and screens view of the pond. The pond is a kettle pond with excellent fishing. We have caught largemouth bass every year we have been there – also caught pickerel from time to time. Lots of turtles, occasional muskrat and two years ago we did see a river otter there! The bird life on the pond is great as well. Some of the birds we have seen there regularly are Osprey which perch regularly in the high trees, Green Herons which often have a nest in low trees just off the pond, Night Herons, Kingfishers, and many song birds. The cottage itself is in very good condition, very relaxing place to be – sunsets over the pond. Also easy walks to the town beaches, the town dock and the general store. We also love walking or driving over to the local ball field to watch the cape cod league Cotuit Kettleers play ball!! The town is quaint, quiet and a real oasis on the Cape.

My family and I enjoyed the private grounds and the magic of this charming secluded paradise! This is a true gem in the heart of "Old Cape Cod", and a trip back to a simpler time. We fished and kayaked on the pond and bicycled around the pristine village of Cotuit. We cannot wait to return!

Year Purchased: 1948
About the owner: I have been coming to Cotuit since 1946. My parents purchased the property in 1947 and it has been a family retreat for these many years. I met my husband on the beach in Cotuit in 1947 and now live summers in the home he shared with his parents. We all had a love affair with Cotuit which continues to this day.
Why the Owner Chose Cotuit:
The property is almost 3 acres and extremely private with exceptional views and proximity to Lewis Pond. Although there is complete privacy. you are extremely close to the village amenities, all within walking distance.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This has been our family cottage since the late 40s. Two generations have loved and maintained it. Third and fourth generations hopefully will delight in the charm of small town friendliness and activities. Cotuit retains the charm of earlier years and has not succumbed to fast food venues and glitz. It is true Cape Cod with tree lined streets, sea captain's homes with their charming widow's walks, bicycle paths, and safe walking trails.
