Overview

About the property

Summer Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8, in family oriented community

Spend relaxing days at Windswept, our wonderful, family owned, waterfront home with dazzling water views from every room. Enjoy your coffee while the sun rises over Buzzards Bay or a cocktail and the cool summer breeze in the evening on the roomy porch. The side and back yards are perfect for games of croquet, volleyball and badminton- or just to sit while soaking up the sun and the peace. Three generations of family memorabilia, brasses and marine charts decorate the walls and the house is filled with comfortable antiques.

Four of the five bedrooms have amazing ocean vistas. The master bedroom has sweeping views of Buzzards Bay. There is a queen size bed, chaise lounge, two desks, two bureaus, and a bathroom off of it. The "blue room" has two twin beds, two bureaus, and opens to the bathroom shared with the master bedroom. The "yellow room" has a full bed, two bureaus, and an interrupted view to the east across Buzzards Bay. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds, a bureau, and a blanket chest. Down the hall there is a full bath. The fifth bedroom has one twin bed, two bureaus, a twin size cot with springs, and a small private bath with the claw foot bathtub. Our home has a fully stocked kitchen, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and linens and towels are provided.

Our house is at the end of the Salter's Point peninsula; a seaside gated community in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts which is surrounded by Buzzards Bay. Amenities include a casual seven hole par three golf course, two sandy beaches, three tennis courts, dock and pier, float, playground, clubhouse and offers organized activities- cookouts, cocktail parties and game nights for adults and children. Moorings in the harbor are available to residents and renters at Salter's Point and can accommodate boats up to 40 feet in length. People ride bicycles everywhere and there's great kayaking and paddle boarding from either beach, so bring your own or rent locally.

We stayed at windswept the first 2 weeks of July and loved every minute of it.

  • 4 of 5

The view from the porch is priceless and we really love the privacy of the spot. Truly a special place.

Truly water front!

  • 5 of 5

Like spending a week at your grandmother"s. Some fragile old things inside...but who"s staying inside when there is a glorious comfy porch and beaches short walk away. Safe biking for kids and nothing between you and a great view. Great farm stands near by with local produce.

Splendid

  • 5 of 5

Having spent our summers overlooking the bay, this property made our family feel at home .

Quiet location , excellent views of the morning sunrise and the moonrise , walking distance to the beach and tennis made it easy for family and friends to enjoy the point on their own.

The house accommodates a family well with plenty of sheets, bath towels and beach towels . If I had to suggest anything it is a newer larger lobster pot. Because you surely may want to steam them up along with mussels or clams.

Owner's Response: You're absolutely right about wanting to steam lots of things at once. We often have three large pans going at once for lobster, mussels and corn. We're sentimental about our grandmother's pot and use it to bring saltwater up from the Bay. I see your point though!

Cottage on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely vacation home with a panoramic view of Buzzards Bay. A full moon over the water greeted us the first night and unobstructed morning sunrises were a delight. Hugh back porch that accommodated family gatherings each night which was so much fun that the TV was never turned on. Great location for seeing nearby attractions (Mystic Seaport, Plimouth Plantation, Hoxie House, Whaling Museum, and an easy drive to Middleboro to catch the train into Boston for walking the Freedom Trail. Had awesome weather for our stay but almost wished for rain so we wouldn't feel guilty about staying inside to read or embroider in one of the sitting rooms. Three generations did however gather around the kitchen table one night to learn how to make beaded earrings and bookmarks. Among favorite memories: son who proposed to girlfriend under a full moon by the Bay, gentle ocean breezes kept the summer heat at bay, and enjoyed the peace and calming of the ocean's waters with family and friends. Can't wait to rent again.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this picturesque home for our summer vacation. The house was great and stocked well with linens, plates, cups etc. We spent most of our time at one of the 2 beaches, golfing, playing tennis, or just teaching the kids to ride their bikes. Thanks for a wonderful time and find memories.
