Property description

Need a place to get away from it all? This is it! The cottage is located on a quiet residential street, just a stone's throw from a salt water lake that leads to the Bass River. You will find the deck is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise or set, and the stars are amazing! Two public boat launches are 1/2 mile away so bring your kayak or your boat, and experience the Bass River, which can be followed right out to the Atlantic Ocean. You may park your boat trailer in the drive way in the back. Stone's Throw is extremely versatile and it is perfect for one, a couple, a small or large family or a few friends.

The 2 bedrooms on the main floor have queen beds, window AC, and ceiling fans. The master has a large bay window, and wall mounted flat screen TV. A third bonus room downstairs contains two twin beds, and a bunk bed with a double bed base, a 46 inch flat screen TV, large enough to be viewed from each bed, and a blue ray player. Perfect for the kids and may be an adult or two!

Linens and towels are provided, however, they must be laundered before you leave. If you are trying to leave by an 11:00 am checkout, it is much easier to bring your own, or to use one of the local linen services.

The upstairs bathroom has a marble vanity top, tub/shower with fully tiled back splash.The downstairs bath is oversized to accommodate the clothes washer and dryer. It features a European sink/vanity, 4 foot shower with built-in seat.

There is a circular driveway in front of house for parking and easy access. Additional parking is in rear of the house. which is on a dead end street. A small neighborhood beach is a 5 minute walk from the backyard. Great for small children who may not be able to handle a full day at the beach.

You can also cycle the Cape Cod Rail Trail, which follows a former railroad 22 miles through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. The trail is paved with few hills, with well-marked automobile crossings. The Dennis Highland Golf Course is 1 mile away and Dennis Pines is 2.5 miles away, John Kelly recreation center is 1.5 miles away with tennis courts, jogging paths & baseball fields.

Yarmouth Port resident Capt. Dave Eaton, who operates Intruder Deep Sea Fishing, lives next door. If you enjoy fishing, be sure to book your trip in advance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Needham, Massachusetts, and have spent summers at the Cape for as long as I can remember. Although I have lived in many places since, I always return to walk the beaches of the Cape.

Why the Owner Chose Yarmouth Port:
I purchased this cottage in 2013 because of its versatility: it is the perfect size for one, for a couple, for 2 small families, 1 large family or for a few friends. It's close to the water, and there is small local beach to walk to with small children, which is perfect for my young grand children, who can't handle always handle a long beach day. Many of my relatives live nearby, and there is nothing better than family.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I fell in love with this cottage as soon as I walked in because it was bright, comfortable, and the water view was more than I had expected. This is my third year here, I am looking forward to planting hydrangeas, and sitting out on the deck, watching the sun rise and set.
