About the Property

1 queen bed+ac and 2 twin beds+ac, full bath, gas fireplaced LR , full kitchen

This cottage is located on Bass River in Grand Cove. Just steps to the waters edge. A wonderful location in the Historic District of South Dennis with it's church bells bellowing across the water, beautiful homes and historic buildings. The cottage was built in the early 1950's. As you enter the cottage the knotty pine walls and hard wood floors welcome you. The living room looks over the Bass River and has amazing sunsets every night. The glass sliding doors bring you to the patio, hot outdoor shower, grill and entrance to the 185' pier and dock. There is a small beach for launching canoes, kayaks and small fishing boats about 100' away. The living room has a gas fire place, a/c, flat screen tv w cable and internet. The kitchen has everything you should need for preparing meals for your stay. The dining nook has
a view of the Bass River. Upstairs, there is a full bathroom w a tub/shower combo. All ceramic tile, floor to wall, was done in 2000. The small bedroom w 2 twin beds and an ac is next to the bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen pillow top mattress, a/c, electric fireplace, flat panel tv, dvd, cable and a view of the water from the picture window above the fireplace. The mattresses were purchased in 2015.
The large beach is just a quick 5 minutes to the West Dennis Beach. This beach has the warm Nantucket Sound water, some waves and soft white sand. The Lighthouse Inn has a great menu on the beach. From the cottage, take a walk to the Breakfast Room for breakfast, Steamer Trunk's surf stuff shop, and the Christmas Tree Shop. An antique shop on the way is always fun to pop into. Location is central to all cape cod has to offer. This property has the use of all amenities at the Yarmouth Country Cabins just 8 minutes away. There is a heated pool, laundry room and bikes to borrow at the cabins. Kayak rentals are nearby the Tom Thumb. The Tom Thumb Cottage is a quaint waterfront cottage with an amazing view and sunsets on the patio every night. Convenient to shopping on Rt.134 at Patriots Square. Cape Cod Rail Trail is one mile from the cottage. There are bikes to rent, parking and one of our favorite restaurants, Morrelle's. The cottage has a dock and beach for fishing and swimming. A 185' dock and boat slip was built Sept '09. Boat slip available with rental. This cottage has 3 a/c units. Each bedroom has a/c and the living room has an a/c.
Grand Cove is a Cape Cod Treasure! It is an amazing fishing spot. When the birds come flyin' in..the fish just start jumping! Sit back and enjoy the views of Bass River. This is a no wake zone. Very quiet. Mussels in the sea grass or fresh fish for dinner? Sail, kayak, and swim! Sit back and enjoy the sunset over the water every night from the patio. Light up the Weber grill for an evening fire or BBQ. The gas fireplace in the living room will keep you warm on a chilly Spring or Fall evening. The location of this rental is set in the heart of all that Cape Cod has to offer yet it is quiet and secluded. This is a Cape Cod treasure. A kayak rental (with delivery) of a kayak can make your vacation complete. Walk to the Breakfast Room for Breakfast or Lunch. We hope you will love it here as much as we do!
The Bass River Marina is just a few minutes away if you would like to rent a boat/boat slip for your week.
Grand Cove is a No Wake Zone. Photos of the waterfront are taken from the back door.
Grand Cove is ocean fed salt water. This cove is located on Bass River. Bass River connects to the Nantucket Sound. The water is the temperature of the ocean or a bit warmer and the fishing is bountiful. There is a boat ramp located on Great Wastern Road in Dennis. The ramp is about 8 minutes from the cottage and parking is free. Beaches: Chapin Beach/Mayflower Beach on the Bay side off Rt. 6a is so beautiful at sunset. Pack a picnic dinner. During the day, bring the kids at low tide...the beach goes out for miles with an abundance of tide pools. West Dennis Beach is just 2 miles from the cottage. It has just enough waves. Coastguard Beach: A 40 minute drive, big waves and nature. Seagull Beach in Yarmouth is calm and warm. Only 10 minutes away. Chapin Beach and Mayflower Beach are best experienced w a low tide that leaves a beach of about 3 miles out and tide pools for toddlers to play in.
Resturants everywhere and shopping. Be sure to catch a whale watch. Cape Cod is a whales destination to feed before they make the trip down the east coast for the winter. Call or email us to reserve your family vacation at Tom Thumb Cottage.
