About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This two bedroom cottage is located in a private setting on a quiet, dead-end, sandy lane directly across from the entrance to Craigville Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod. The cottage borders on the Centerville River and salt marsh with its abundant wildlife - perfect for kayaking from the private dock.

The cottage is within a few hundred feet and just a short 3-minute stroll to the beach (no charge if walking in). Scenic hamlet of Craigville Village is only a 5 minute walk away. A penny candy store and the famous Four Seas ice cream shop are also within walking distance or a short bike ride. Nearby attractions in Hyannis including the Kennedy Museum, Cape Cod Melody Tent, shopping, restaurants and ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are just minutes away by car.

Relax in the sunroom or living room after a fun day at the beach or you can enjoy the decks overlooking Nantucket Sound or the river and marsh. There is a private patio with a picnic table and Weber gas grill in the front yard. Galley kitchen with all appliances and utensils provided. One bedroom with a full bed and bunk beds. Second bedroom with twin bed and bunk beds. Sofa bed in sunroom also provided. Bathroom with shower. Also an enclosed outdoor shower with hot/cold water.

About Scott & Jennifer Heim

We live in Massachusetts and love Cape Cod - particularly kayaking and admiring the natural wonders of this region. We like to spend as much time as we can at the cottage spring through fall but rent it to guests for a few weeks during the summer.

Scott & Jennifer Heim purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Scott & Jennifer Heim chose Centerville

We fell in love with the area over 20 years ago and enjoy the beaches and the proximity of other area attractions. The cottage is private and rustic with knotty pine present throughout most of the cottage giving it that classic Cape Cod look. It is located directly across the street from the beach yet on a private dead-end road so there is practically no traffic. The views are great from the deck.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking the beach in the morning. Having lunch at the cottage and then spending the afternoon swimming and relaxing at the beach. We love birding on the deck that overlooks the Centerville River and salt marsh as you never know what species you'll see. We especially like to watch the many ospreys dive for fish in the river. Also, packing a picnic lunch and kayaking from the cottage to one of the nearby, uncrowded beaches is a great way to spend a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cottage was lovely and your hospitality was the best.

My wife and I loved the waterfowl on the river - you have more egrets, herons and osprey in that little area than we see in much larger areas here in salt marshes in Maine.

My sons came down from Boston and one of them kayaked the river with me - it was a great ride.

Again all the best and we would do it again.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for two weeks in July and loved it. The location couldn't be beat (3/4 minutes walk to Craigville Beach and the view from the rooftop deck and back deck were awesome. The wildlife seen from the back deck was really great and we looked forward to watching the cranes, ospreys, etc. The sunroom was our favorite part of the cottage. The owners were easy to deal with and most accommodating. The basket of 'goodies' was a very nice touch and the cottage was very clean and quite homey. We loved everything about the place and we had a wonderful vacation stay. Thanks again for everything!!!!!!
