Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Born and brought up in Massachusetts, and have lived in California for many years. Now retired from the retail industry, we decided it was time to buy a home on the East Coast. Sometime in the future we could then move 'home' and be closer to siblings and life long friends. Until then we are offering our home for rent so others can enjoy our home and all Cape Cod has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Hyannis:
We were attracted to the Cape Cod cottage style of the house. Walking through the front door we were immediately taken by the wood floors, cathedral ceiling, and sunny open feeling. Having a first floor bedroom and full bath across the hall with slate floors was a real plus. The master bedroom (27 x 17) on the second floor with wood floors is huge, and in some cities might be considered a studio apartment on it's own. We also liked that it is in a quiet residential neighborhood with a large fenced in backyard, yet nearby with easy access to the beach or fresh water, tourist attractions and any amenities we would need.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Once we learned that we could easily go to nearby Lake Wequaquet to swim in fresh water or go boating, yet enjoy the many beaches of Barnstable (including Covells and Craigville Beach) we knew the house was for us. Enjoy nearby Lake Wequaquet's 'beach area' with an on-duty lifeguard or launch your canoe, kayak, or row boat at the lake's boat landing. A pass will be provided giving you access and FREE PARKING (save the daily $15-25 parking fee) to the seven beaches of Barnstable. The drive to nearby Covells, which is for beach pass only and Craigville Beach (see photo) are only 2.5 miles. Although tucked away in a quiet residential community, you have easy access to the many tourist attractions of Hyannis, only a 3 mile drive. Stroll down Main Street with its many shops and eateries or take in a movie at the Cape Cod Mall with its many familiar stores. Take a ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket from Hyannis or drive to Falmouth or Woods Hole if you want a shorter 'ocean voyage'. Fresh seafood is a specialty at the local fish market or at the many wonderful restaurants on the Cape. If you enjoy live theater, the Melody Tent is about a 10 minute drive. For the baseball fan, the Cape Cod Baseball League is one of the premiere summer leagues spotlighting the best collegiate talent. The Hyannis team is only a fifteen minute drive away. Visit the Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame at the 'Dugout', which is located at the lower-level of the JFK Museum in Hyannis. While you are there take in the JFK museum, which consists of a collection of photographs relating to the Kennedys and the many years they spent vacationing in Hyannis Port. Enjoy the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 25 mile paved bike and walking path. For the history buff visit the Plimouth Plantation and the Mayflower which are about 45 minutes away. Then at the end of your day return to a quiet neighborhood, and enjoy a good night's sleep on comfy mattresses to prepare for your next day's excursion.
