Absolutely awesome.

What a great property and all around experience. The cottage is great and very functional, the river and dock is spectacular, and the location is perfect for everything the area has to offer. We had a superb time. Thanks Jon!

Beautiful deep water dock on Bass River

  • 4 of 5

I have dreamed of staying on Bass River with my own boat and a deep water dock between the wind mill and the mouth of the river since 1975.

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Having coffee on the dock at sunrise and watching the fishing boats go out is a picture I will hold in my mind forever.

The cottage is comfortable and one begins to feel at home in no time. The owner is friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to rent what it is. If you want a Hilton at the yacht club stay elsewhere.

Security deposit not returned, Not Clean

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the property and were disappointed with the condition of the place.the property was rundown and there were cleanliness issues. The oven was dirty as well as some dishes in the cabinets. The box springs were stained. Although stated the dock was 200 yards from the house, it did not say is was down a driveway and and across the street, we felt this was misrepresented. As a result we did not even stay there and went to a motel. This is the first time in 30 years this has ever happened. we going to chalk this up to some bad luck but we still did not get back our security deposit after asking 4 times, from the home owner. We did not even stay here so there was no chance fro any damage.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately our guest did not notify us via phone, email or text that they were dissatisfied during their 3 day stay in mid-October, until early in December when they first wrote the review. We have shared our vacation home and waterfront property with hundreds of satisfied guests and families since 1999, Spring, Summer and Fall. The home is professionally cleaned after each guest has departed, however if we receive timely complaints, we will respond quickly and re-dispatch the cleaning team at the guests' convenience to correct the issue. The damage deposit was not withheld and was refunded in full.

Great we waterfront location for a quiet summer week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house in August 2010 for a week. We docked our little boat at the dock, just 50 steps from the house, and fished, swam, and boated the week away. Great owner who was very communicative and flexible, and a cozy cottage with all the amenities and enough room for guests. We loved the amenities--grill, w/d, internet, outdoor shower, and quiet neighbors, quiet street, and 2 min bike ride to the sand beaches. The river, however, was the best place to sit on the dock and watch the world go by! HIghly recommend it.

About Jon

5th generation Cape Cod Vacationer. It is in the blood. Enjoy every minute of vacation time on Cape Cod, even when replacing shingles with willing family members.

Jon purchased this cottage in 1930

Why Jon chose South Yarmouth

Multiple generations have learned to swim, sail, boat, canoe, kayak, fish and work on this property and on Bass River and Nantucket Sound for over 100 years. May the next generation be so inclined and lucky. Please share the spirit of Cape Cod with us too.

What makes this cottage unique

Many of our guests enjoy making their family memories at this house year after year. From watching their children or grandchildren master the arts of biking in the driveway, swimming, fishing or boating, or just relaxing by the water and enjoying the salt air and ocean breezes. Every day, every year, the time passes, but the Cape remains a constant reminder of unlimited potential of each day and night spent with family in this setting. Summers on Cape Cod always end too soon, so come back next year.
