  • 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."

  • Exceeded my expectations-Hidden Jewel

    "The few photos on the website do not do it justice. The house was extremely well equipped. The deck is large, great for relaxing and entertaining with a beautiful view. The location was perfect for whatever you want to do. My brother caught a fish while canoeing on the pond within 1 min of casting. We rented bikes from Barbs in Brewster and went on the bike path. Brax Landing has a nice outdoor deck for lunch/dinner and drinks. The Sand Dollar bar had live entertainment and was a lively fun bar. My friends and family all had a great time and would love to return next summer."

  • Beautiful home...

    "We spent the week at the house as our home base and enjoyed it incredibly. Plenty of room, plenty of amenities, and conveniently located! The outdoor shower was pure magic! Perfect for two families with small children or an older couple looking to escape. Out of the crowds near the beach, but yet a short drive to many great beaches (we found Chapin this year and are HOOKED). We are looking forward to renting again next season!"

  • Amazing Week!

    "What an amazing vacation! The house is perfectly situated on Bucks Pond at the end of a dead end street. The private beach is so relaxing. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling--even pulling the beach chairs down to the private beach to read with our feet in the warm water. We kayaked daily, whether it be just around the pond, or to one of the association beaches for more swimming. Our daughters now believe that a pond/lake is better than the ocean! The wildlife was wonderful as well. My 11-year-old future ornithologist was thrilled to see a cormorant, an osprey, Canada geese, catbirds, and many other songbirds during the course of the week. We did day trips on the Cape Cod Rail Trial, to Coast Guard Beach, and to Wellfleet and Orleans. The deck was wonderful for our nightly grilling and relaxing--and NO MOSQUITOS! The house was so sunny and bright, had a large table, large living room, huge master bedroom and a well-appointed kitchen. We definitely plan to return!"
