Property description

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!

Our house is on the waterfront, where the beach is *very* private and perfect for walking, bird-watching, kayaking and canoeing - bring your own boats! Best swimming is at the public beach .5 mi up the drive and along the dirt road.

Ground floor master bedroom, with Queen size bed, opens onto screen porch; master bath has sliding doors opening to private deck with outdoor shower.

Three second-floor bedrooms each sleep two. Queen bedroom on second floor is extra large with seating area. First floor office shares master bath and opens onto kitchen. Every bedroom has its own sink.

Comfortable house surrounded by woods with expansive water view, beach access and complete privacy.

Special offer: Looking for a Labor Day Get Away? Or a break after the rush?

Book both weeks and get a 20% discount, or take either week and enjoy some solitude on the Cape after many families have left to take kids to college. This charming family house sleeps 8, comes with its own beach pass and sits on quiet Popponesett Bay. Do some beach combing, bring your canoe or kayak and explore the edge of the bay and picturesque Cotuit before your fall gets hectic.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Together, my siblings and I own this house, which was built by our parents, and we enjoy it every summer. It is only available for rent when we are not using it. A resident of Arizona, I drive to the Cape each summer to spend time with family and long time friends. My husband and I have two young adult children. We are an active family and have enjoyed Cotuit for several generations. Many cousins and second cousins vacation in Cotuit still.

Why the Owner Chose Cotuit, Barnstable, MA, USA:
Our family built this house for our personal use and has a long history of vacationing in Cotuit. We love the quiet seclusion of the woods, birding and looking at wild flowers in the spring. During the summer months, you can see us on our bicycles or boats enjoying all that Cotuit and its quiet atmosphere has to offer. We are sure you'd enjoy it too.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house's greatest asset is the extraordinary privacy. First, it is a simple, comfortable summer house, surrounded by woods; no houses are visible. Second, are the colorful sunsets and views over the Bay.
