For that significant family reunion, the special birthday or a get together with old friends, this is the perfect choice. Located on thirty acres of privately owned land immediately adjacent to 300 plus acres of the newly created Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, this secluded property fronts directly on Buzzard's Bay.
The house and a large sloping lawn (soccer, volleyball anyone?) are situated on a bluff featuring spectacular views looking south across the expanse of the Bay towards the Elizabeth Islands. On a clear summer day Martha's Vineyard can be seen in the distance. To the east is the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal with its interesting array of ship traffic, while to the west, beautiful summer sunsets appear over Marion. The property includes its own private beach protected by a breakwater that is home to a variety of fish just waiting to be caught.
The house is very spacious with two large living rooms facing the Bay, a very large kitchen/dining area and a library. Five of the six bedrooms on the second floor offer ocean views while the sixth (master) bedroom, is extremely ample. Almost all of the rooms in the house (and all of the bedrooms) have been recently renovated. There is dormitory style single sleeping for seven on the third floor and an adjacent cottage is optionally available for rental, sleeping an additional six people. Wide verandas extend around two sides of the house, providing cool spaces for gracious outdoor living.
For those for who enjoy walking/biking, there is ample opportunity on the well-marked paths of the Wildlife Sanctuary and local back roads. A public golf course is located within a short distance from the property and there are numerous restaurants, shopping opportunities and other recreational facilities close by. Baseball enthusiasts can take in Wareham Gatemen games of the Cape Cod League, seeing young talent as they progress to the major leagues. For history buffs, the famous whaling city of New Bedford and Plimouth Plantation are each approximately twenty minutes away.

I am only writing a review because I have tried emailing and calling the owners to no avail. I am interested in renting this house over the next month or so. I am also interested in a summer rental. If anyone can help me get in touch with the owners, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We enjoyed a 4 generation family vacation - house is spacious, well appointed and equipped. Owned by a gracious family who are the primary users of the house. Family pictures, decoration and amenities make the house feel like home. One of the owners lives close by and is most attentive to any needs. Beach is rounded rocks at high tide, some sand a lower tides. Access via a sloped path and stairs. With swim shoes, swimming is fine. House was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We would recommend this home to any large family. Our family was unanimous in wanting to come back next year.
Our family of 18 spent a week (much too short) at this wonderful New England home. As a 50th Anniversary gift our children rented this historical oceanfront estate home and cottage in July. The property was so comfortable and well appointed that it was difficult to leave and visit the wonderful Rhode Island and Massachusetts sites, including a Red Sox/Yankees game, fabulous whale watch, Plimouth Plantation, Newport Tall Ships cruise, and deep sea fishing. We didn't have time to take a drive into Maine. Everyone from ages 4 to 72 vowed to return. The weather was certainly a relief from the smoldering midwest summer. The lack of air conditioning was not an issue, since there were plenty of fans, and nights were cool. The oceanfront views are incredible, with binoculars and a telescope for viewing ships sailing through the channel. The beach was fun and we rented kayaks which were delivered and picked up by the provider. There is valuable information in the visitor's book at each house. We were amazed to find this hidden treasure of an oceanfront property so secluded and private in the woods within an hour of Boston and Newport. Only suggestion would be to get bug spray and take old sneakers or swim shoes for the typical rocky New England beach.
