About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 - maximum)


The cottage is just across the street from Bass River - about a mile from the mouth of the River and Nantucket Sound. Several types of beaches, i.e., river beaches, Nantucket Sound beaches, are walkable and bikeable from cottage. Private garden.

This adorable, central air-conditioned, authentic Cape Cod cottage is situated in a lovely residential neighborhood that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Districts. An 1820 Cape cottage with wide planked pine flooring and hand-hewn timbers, but with all the modern conveniences.

Perfectly placed for exploring Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Boston and Southeast New England -- all in easy reach.

The luxury of central air conditioning has recently been installed together with central heating. It has also been recently re-decorated.

Bass River is the largest, all salt tidal river on the East Coast. There are several free public River beaches along Bass River a short stroll from the cottage or approx. 1 mile (1.6 km) to Nantucket Sound's ocean beaches.

The lovely views along the river are perfect for a leisurely daily walk or bike. There is a small neighborhood bakery (less than a mile) nestled nearby for fresh breakfast yummies, coffee, the paper and other bakery items.

The river is wonderful for kayaking and kayak rentals are very close by. There are several places to put in should you have your own.

The cottage features three bedrooms with closets and bureaus. Upper floor: one double bedroom and one single bedroom plus half-bath. Lower floor: one double bedroom; full bath with bathtub/shower; comfortable living room with digital cable color TV; DVD player w/ DVD library; CD player w/ iPod docking; WiFi; assorted books/games; large eat-in kitchen with refrigerator, electric cooktop; convection/microwave oven, toaster, kettle, all kitchen china/utensils, etc.

The kitchen opens onto a private brick patio complete with umbrellaed patio seating for four with gas barbeque overlooking the garden. A traditional Cape Cod lawn with hammock completes the quintessential Cape Cod experience.

Bed linens (all 100% cotton) provided. Please bring your own bath/beach towels.

Two large food markets and pharmacy are less than one mile from the cottage.

Items available on request are: four bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrella, large cooler.

Less than one hour to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Hyannis and the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are a 20-minute drive from the cottage and Boston proper a 1-1/2 hour drive.

Ideal for small family or two couples. Maximum of four.

This is a non-smoking property both inside and out. I am sorry, but we cannot accommodate pets. Unsuitable for children under 12.
