About the property

Cottage, 1 Bath, 3 bedrooms (Sleeps 5 )

This charming cottage is tucked away in a private neighborhood on Buttermilk Bay. Built in 1947 it has been carefully updated while retaining its original style. The floor plan maximizes the space and welcomes small gatherings. A wood burning fireplace in the comfortable living room adds warmth on cool nights in both summer and winter. The cottage overlooks a beautiful, secluded tidal cove that attracts herons, ducks, swans and other shore birds. Launch your kayak directly from the backyard. Every window offers a water view. Watch the tide rise and the sun set in this very peaceful location. An outdoor shower, fire pit, grill, and nearby bike/kayak rentals are added attractions of this getaway.

**Available for winter rental

About Bob

I'm a realtor/business man and I have lived on the Cape Cod for the past ten years.

Bob purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Bob chose Buzzards Bay

Buzzards Bay and surrounding areas of Bourne have a rich history as a tourist destination since the early 1900s.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at this Wallace Point cottage during August of 2012 and loved it! The cottage is adorable and has a well equipped kitchen. It fronts a cove off the bay that we kayaked from and the water views are very pretty. Bob and Pam, the owners couldn't have been nicer. Can't wait to go back!

The perfect family cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sons, and I enjoyed a week at Bob's vacation house. The cottage is charming. We loved this Buttermilk Bay cove and had easy backyard access to SUP, kayak, swim, and fish to our hearts content. The neighborhood is peaceful and a short bike ride to public swings, a public beach, restaurants, and the canal path. We definitely will rent this house again!

Love this little house, will stay again for sure

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have rented this house. We come to Bourne every year for 1-2 weeks for a horse show and rent a house for anywhere from 2-8 people. This house is great for up to 3 moms with kids and is so convenient to the show grounds, 5 min drive. The little beach down the street is great and almost always empty. The backyard is perfect for grilling and making s'mores and our horse show dogs love the fact that they can run around safely since it is at the end of a point of land with no car traffic. Would love a second bathroom but you can't have everything. Thanks Bob for letting us stay again, we'll be back.

Exceeded our expectations-- a true Cape Cod experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage over the 4th of July week, bringing three generations of family together for a beautiful Cape Cod experience. We were thrilled with the lay-out of the cottage, including the fully equipped kitchen, the three bedrooms (plus an extra bedroom in the walk-out basement), and the comfortable living area. While the interior of the cottage was very clean and accommodating, we spent much of the time "outside" the cottage, relaxing in the yard, cooking out on the charcoal grill, kayaking in Buttermilk Bay, and biking on the Cape Cod Canal Bike path. This area of Onset is so quiet and relaxing, yet is a short drive to the renowned restaurants and shops of Cape Cod. Buttermilk Bay is a beautiful place to kayak or paddle-- and Nemasket Kayak Center will deliver and pick up boards right to the cottage. It was so helpful, as well, to have such positive and clear communications with Bob, the owner of the cottage. He answered all my questions prior to our visit in such a timely manner. Our family truly had the most wonderful stay!!

Perfect house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

After a busy week in NYC, we drove up to Cape Cod for a more relaxed week, an area I'd wanted to visit for many years. The house is beautiful and in an amazing spot on the bay, very well maintained, very well equipped, very comfortable and perfect for our family of four with two teenagers. We ate at the house mostly but Mezza Luna Italian restaurant in Buzzards Bay is recommended - fantastic food and faultless service. The house is located in a perfect position at the start of the Cape, making Boston in the north and Provincetown at the end of the Cape both around an hour's drive away. We hired bikes and there is a lovely ride along the canal to a beautiful sandy beach. Lovely day spent on Martha's Vineyard although had we been more organised, we would have booked in advance and taken the car over so that we could have had more freedom to explore. It was the last weekend before school started so the return ferries had long since been fully booked. We had a great day though and it is quite easy to get around the island by bus or taxi. Falmouth is stunning, such a pretty town. We also visited the Drive-In Theatre at Wellfleet - a real treat for us Brits, we didn't even know what was showing until we parked up but we HAD to do it! We all loved our base here in Cape Cod and really hope that we will be able to come back again one day.

Nature & access to the Cape!

  • 4 of 5

This charming cottage was a perfect place for my family and I to stay during our vacation. Traveling a distance (NY and Washingtion DC) the location of Buzzards Bay at the beginning of the Cape's arm was convenient to get to and also a good base to do day trips to the different beaches, towns and tourist attractions. Starting at the local canal celebrating it's 100 birthday...(CC Ice Cream is a must in town!) to the tip of the Cape...this being our first time in the area, we did it all!...The best was when we got back we could kick back .. so inviting was to just enjoy nature in the backyard. The description is accurate regarding the cottage but the backyard and view were under estimated....relaxing, nature to enjoy. We could have done things differently and just hung around locally. Bob advised us about our kayaks, but the sunsets across the road were a lovely surprise gift.... If I had to be a critic I would say although the kitchen was well equipped...I would have preferred my bigger frying pan for eggs and regular coffee's just a family!.. The cottage was charming, with hints of love, art, and of course nature as well...we had a great time. Thank you Bob... for sharing your home.
