"Beautiful view from this quaint small cottage in the perfect location. Rustic but comfortable place for our first visit to Cape Cod. The Shining Sea Bike Path was just steps from the home where we rode rented bikes every day--including biking to the ferry station for Martha's Vineyard, biking to the restaurants in Woods Hole, and also the town of Falmouth. Dad and daughter enjoyed fishing from the big rocks on the beach. Accomodations perfect for up to 4 people comfortably; we had 2 adults and 3 children--one a teenager, so a little tight on space, but manageable. The grassy yard on the side and in the back was a wonderful place for the kids to run around and decompress after a day's full of activities in town. We also tried the Adventure Park in Sandwich which the kids aged 7 through 14 loved! The adults even had a good time, although sore for the next two days! If venturing out to Sandwich, make sure to stop by "Ice Cream Sandwich" shop on the way back--best real homemade ice cream in multiple flavors we've had hands down, and we are self proclaimed ice cream conoisseurs. They even have lobster rolls, which were amazing and far better than the lobster rolls we had in town at Falmouth and Woods Hole. Thank you to the owners of Small Cottage in making our first Cape Cod visit a dream!"

"We spent some time here over Christmas and were delighted with the wide open kitchen and large spaces for gathering, but also plenty of rooms to break off from the crowd. Because it's on a flagpole lot and backs to woods, you really feel like you've gotten away from it all; at the same time, you can easily walk into town or to the lighthouse. Thanks!"

"This is a gorgeous spot in Orleans, MA overlooking Skaket Marsh. Sunsets are spectacular. The property is beautifully maintained and landscaped and the house is large and spacious, with views of the bay from practically every room. The rooms are large and comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked (there's a second kitchen in the basement!). This is an ideal property for large family get-togethers. The owner is wonderful—communicative and very responsive to your needs. Highly recommended!"

"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!"
