Property description

If you are looking for a small, charming, classic cape cod summer cottage in a spectacular beachfront setting - you found it. Fully winterized and cozy in all seasons - the cottage has a working fireplace, deep soaking tub, WIFI, a charcoal grill, hammock and cable on a flat screen TV.

Perfect for a singles, couples or small family - photographers, writers, artists, bicyclers, runners, scientists, swimmers, paddleboarders, windsurfers, kayakers, boaters, fishers, beach-combers and nature-lovers will enjoy this special setting.

Step back to a gracious time at this 1920's vintage little cottage with beautiful 180 degree views of the ocean. Small Cottage has a rolling lawn down a private beach just for your use and also backs onto the bike path with easy walk or bike into Woods Hole and Falmouth. You can also walk on the bike path directly to the Woods Hole ferry terminal so you won't have to pay for parking when you hop the ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket for the day.

Located on a small dirt road, you will wake to the sounds of the waves and the smell of sea air. Have your coffee or cocktail hour on the deck or stroll down barefoot to the beach and and sit in adirondack chairs to watch the sailboats and ferries while the kids swim in the water or stroll the beach searching for sea glass and shells to take home. You can also rent/bring ocean kayaks or sailboats and launch right from the cottage. When you are done at the beach for the day - take a outdoor shower and then grill your favorite seafood for a waterfront dinner on the deck, at the picnic table on the lawn or inside at the dining table with the large picture window overlooking the ocean.

Small Cottage is a simple but sweet beach cottage with many of the 1920's details retained. There is a window AC in one bedroom, WIFI, cable on a flat screen tv, a full kitchen, charcoal grill, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, beach chairs, picnic table, fireplace and linens and towels are included.

There is no dishwasher but you can wash the dishes with a view of the ocean.

Small Cottage was originally part of larger estate with Olcottage, a larger house right next door (VRBO#267615). They are owned and rented now by separate families but the two properties could be rented in conjunction for two joining beaches and lawns if desired.

The cottage sleeps 4 comfortably.

Car: Recommended

Woods Hole is known the world over for cutting edge science - especially Marine biology and it is chock full of things to do in the summer for science- and ocean-lovers. There are free Friday MBL lectures all summer long given by renowned scientists that anyone can go. A terrific aquarium with a touch tank and two seals in an outside tank and a wonderful summer science school for kids that many generations of locals have sent their kids to. Many of those future scientists state that Woods Hole Children's School of Science http://childrensschoolofscience.org was the start in their interest in a career in sciences.

Quite a few of our renters have rented the cottage for three weeks just so their kids can go to the Children's School of Science - you can walk to the village of Woods Hole on the bike path - right near the cottage.

Walking distance to the quaint village of Woods Hole and the vibrant village of Falmouth with many restaurants, art galleries and activities within easy reach.
