Property description

If you want to stay somewhere quaint and clean in the heart of Osterville this is the place for you! Initially this was built as a Boat House which over the years has been converted into a quaint cape style cottage and most recently underwent a complete renovation. The cottage is absolutely adorable and appointed with wonderful furnishings and linens. No lumpy bed here or old worn, torn furnishings. This is as upscale as Osterville!

The location is 1 block from Main St. in the beautiful quaint village of Osterville. Shopping, dining, market, post office, library, hair salon, nail salon and everything you need is all within walking distance.

Enjoy a summer evening ice scream at Gone Chocolate? 5 Bays Bistro (also a quick 5 minute walk) offers upscale dining and a great place to have a cocktail after a day at the beach! Have a lovely dinner and walk home! We are a mile from Dowses Beach, so for the more active bring your bike or jogging shoes!

For the early bird a morning stroll into Osterville and a visit to Cafe Crumb will bring the best Coffees, cappuccino's and french pastries on the Cape made fresh daily from Pain D'avignone.

Perfect cottage for 1 - 2 people to get away. Studio with queen bed, couch, TV, air conditioning, Kitchen (stove, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave), Bathroom with tub and shower, washer and dryer and small yard with grill and patio furniture. Walk to Main Street,

Joshua's Pond or Dowses Beach, all very close. Even small beach at the end of Bay St. which is less than a mile walk.

Are you a clean freak? Then this is the place for you!!! Our cottage is very clean and neat and the furnishings are all clean and in great condition!

Our cottage is a 1 room studio, you walk into a small mudroom with washer and dryer and then enter a very bright and charming cottage with a bed with white linens, small couch, TV, and kitchen prep and eating area. Everything you need is here and nothing you don't. Unwind in this gorgeous cottage and wonderful town!

The yard will park two cars and has a grill and out door eating table with chairs. Bring your bikes and bike to the village or beach, take a dip at Joshua's Pond which is a close walk away or even hike the wood near the pond. Lot's to do in this great location. The yard is ample enough to sunbathe and feel right at home!

Osterville is one of the most beautiful villages on Cape Cod. It is picturesque and quaint with everything you need within walking distance.

Enjoy the wonderful long summer evenings strolling the lovely streets of Osterville. You can do a little shopping, grab a bite to eat at Five Bays Bistro, Ice Cream at Gone Chocolate, a perfect summer night! Everything you need is right here in Osterville. We have a library, churches, restaurants and a wonderful array of specialty stores. Massages, pedicures, hair salon are also located in town. Of course there is beautiful Dowses Beach just a mile away!

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We recently purchased this very cute rental cottage for overflow of friends and family. When not in use we rent it out. We absolutely adore this place and treat it like our home. It isn't your typical rental! Luxury and cleanliness in the heart of Osterville. Your home away from home!

Why the Owner Chose Osterville:
There aren't many Cottages available in the heart of Osterville and this quaint Osterville Boat House has everything 2 people will need to make this their perfect relaxing summer vacation. If you bring a Pack n' Play a young child or infant would fit also in this cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
A quaint beachy cottage with Cape Cod style will help you feel relaxed the minute you walk in. Clean all white furnishings soothe the mind and soul! Great private location. You are not renting a cottage on our property and have to deal with homeowners. You have your own private space and yard! Bring your bikes and enjoy biking and hiking in the nearby woods!
