Sit on the screen porch in the evening and watch the sun set over Popponesset Bay, which opens onto Nantucket Sound.
Our house sits on six wooded acres off a dirt road, adjacent to 20 acres of conserved beach, woods and marsh, great for walking and bird watching. We are two miles from Cotuit village; 15 minutes from Mashpee and 30 minutes from Hyannis. From here, ride your bikes along some dirt roads to Main Street or walk to Oregon Beach which has public access. The house's beach parking permit allows you to park there and at Loop Beach or Riley's beach in Cotuit, or all Barnstable Town beaches.
There are great biking routes all over the Cape; take day trips for shopping, walking beaches, exploring outer Cape towns or go on a whale watch from Barnstable harbor.
The Cotuit Kettleers are one of the Cape Cod League's best ball teams, always in contention. Many major leaguers got their start in the Cape Cod League. The field is a 20 minute bike ride away. Most home games start at 5 or 5:30 as the field doesn't yet have lights! Parking can be a challenge, so plan ahead and get there early. Fun for all ages. Take your mitts and catch a fly ball! Hot dogs and other ball park food available for sale.
Or enjoy a reading vacation on the screen porch!
