Truly A Home Away from Home with Large Heated Inground Pool!
"We are a large group of 3 families with young children. Maggie's cottage is truly a home away from home for us. The cottage was extremely well stocked: apart from the usual that you'd expect to see in a cottage rental, Maggie went out of her way to stock up condiments, plastic bags, paper towels & tissue papers, even shampoos and soaps, you name it! Everything you need in your own home, Maggie got it! The heated pool was a huge hit with the children, we even swam under the stars. One evening we lit up the camp fire in the fire pit, and roasted some marshmallows, our children still talk about that experience even today. The cottage does show some signs of wear, but Maggie’s personal touches throughout the house only add character to it.
The cottage is located in a convenient yet very quiet location: about 2 min away from a large Stop & Shop (grocery) store & the beer/liquor store. The historic Chatham is only 15 minutes away. We also saw the most amazing sunset at the Skaket beach, also just 10-12 min away and recommended by Maggie. During low tide our kids loved looking for clams, hermit crabs and horseshoe crabs there!
The only reason that I gave this cottage a 4 star is difficulty of payment: Maggie only accepts checks, and being a non-American traveler, I had to go to the bank and get a certified US Dollar bank draft to mail it to Maggie. When she returned my security deposit, it was yet another check to deposit: from USD back to CAD. It would be so much easier if Maggie could accept electronic payments. I was also a bit shocked to receive the rental agreement in an actual mail, in this age a PDF file sent as attachment would make much more sense. That being said, those are small annoyances that didn’t hinder our thorough enjoyment of Maggie’s beautiful cottage."

"My husband & I recently took a 2 week vacation trip back home to Massachusetts. Wanting to stay on the cape for part of our time, I searched many sites looking for a nice rental home within steps to the beach. My several hours of searching, paid off. This home is a beauty & offers plenty of living & sleeping space. The large sun deck within steps to the private beach was great. Planning to go back next year, I highly recommend this home for your vacation stay. Owner Tom was a pleasure to work with."

"My friends and I rented this house for Memorial Day Weekend May 22nd-May 25th 2015.
We had an incredibly wonderful time - the house is spacious, with lots of room for games, activities, relaxing and many rooms to accommodate a large group. The kitchen was perfect for our weekend, we were able to BBQ easily and found all the equipment we needed. We spent a great amount of time on the outside chairs and the long table that comfortably sat our entire group for enjoyable dinners!
We adored the fact that the linens were provided, that we were literally 2min walking from the beach, about 30/35min walk to Main Street Hyannis... the cleanliness as well as the convenience of working with the owner to accommodate all our needs.
It's clear that this place is used to receiving groups because we never ran out of anything. We definitely recommend it to families and large groups; the peacefulness of the neighborhood as well as the proximity to the mall and other entertainments make it an ideal spot!"

"My family and I stumbled across this property while trying to plan an impromptu long weekend. And, I wish we stayed for the entire week. The cottage was a perfect beach cottage, everything you need- all the comforts of home, very cozy, and very close to the beach. We took strolls every morning with our babies and the neighbors were all delightful. The beach was very accessible with nice sand and shallow calm water for the little ones. Plenty of good little places to eat nearby. The owners were very responsive to questions and met all of my needs. All in all- a fantastic weekend. Looking forward to next year!"
