A short stroll to quaint Falmouth Village with its shops, Carousel, Playground, ice cream/candy, bowling/games, movie night on the green, Thursday band on the Harbor, and restaurants. short distance to bike path and Martha's Vineyard ferry.

We love the ocean breeze while taking a jog along the beach or bike trail. Close to Island Queen Ferry at Falmouth Harbor. Landing at harbor for boats.

Bike to Woods Hole on the Shining Sea Bike Trail, untouched by commercialism (no MacDonalds or Burger Kings), the WHOI (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute) has much to offer. The Ocean Science Exhibit Center, the small aquarium and seal pool, are always a delight for the kids. The hands on crustacian exhibit is also fascinating! Captain Kidd on the docks is our favorite restaurant. Lunch with the kids is at the Woods Hole rooftop market overlooking the Harbor.

About Richard or Carla Thomas

We have owned the cottage for 23 years. I am a teacher and have spent summers here for all 23. My two children return frequently and love the cape as much as we do!

Why Richard or Carla Thomas chose Falmouth

Walking and biking distance to anything you may need. You won't need to travel anywhere once you arrive. Ocean breezes everyday. So close to the ocean, we hear the surf at night. Close to Island Queen Ferry for a day trip to Marthas Vineyard.

What makes this cottage unique

Fenced in yard for small children and child safe street. Large patio and deck! So many great memories with our family here. Our favorite place in the world!

Great location. Great place. Great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 young kids. The beach, which is steps away, has a small inlet, perfect for our children to get comfortable being in the water and to search for shells and hermit crabs. The house has an outside shower which is a must when coming back from the beach. Our family of five, was very comfortable in this nice cape cod home in a quiet neighborhood. The town is around the corner - cute shops, and good restaurants. There is even a playground and a carousel which was great for the kids.

Carla and Dick, the owners were wonderful and very accommodating. Wouldn't want to vacation anywhere else and looking forward to our trip next year!
