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.

Beautiful location in Buzzards Bay!
We enjoyed our stay very much! Relatives drove from Ohio, and they loved it, too. The house was very well-equipped and big enough for 6 people. The location was good, very quiet, but easy to drive to Onset, the Cape, and the Cape Cod Canal. We took advantage of the beautiful beaches, the Canal Cruise, driving onto the Cape, and all of the excellent restaurants.
There was a very minor problem with the key to the downstairs bedroom, and the owner came immediately to fix the problem. That we really appreciated.
The weather was ideal, and the week flew by so quickly!!!
Lovely character cottage with fabulous views
We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in this very charming characterful cottage. Firstly, the views from all windows are just stunning. We enjoyed sitting out in the private garden looking out onto the water. This very tranquil spot is home to all sorts of wildlife and extremely peaceful. Every morning we walked around the edge of our creek to swim in Buttermilk Bay and in the evenings enjoyed the sunsets on the other side. There is plenty to do in both good and bad weather. The beaches are lovely particularly Orleans and we really recommend lake swimming and cycling at Brewster. We loved Sandwich and found the JFK museum at Hyannis very interesting. We loved the interior of the cottage and really appreciated the wonderful china and accessories that make it truly a home from home! We have also developed a love of jazz music particularly Dave Burbeck and have bought the cd since returning to the UK so we can reminisce about our very memorable holiday. Thank you very much, we will be back!
The perfect family cottage!
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
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!!
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
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.
