Property type house

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Have a front row seat on one of the prettiest harbors on the east coast! Watch the activity in Quissett Harbor and out in Buzzards Bay or play croquet on the large lawn. Enjoy a private, sandy beach steps away from the house. The warm, sheltered water is a magnet for swimmers young and old. The beach house provides shade and fresh water after a day in the sun. For more adventurous swimmers, there is a private diving float a few yards from the beach. Kayakers will appreciate smooth paddling around the harbor and out into Buzzards Bay.

The house is perfectly situated to capture the southwest breezes blowing though the large windows. The front porch overlooking the harbor is the favorite gathering place to read, watch harbor activity, and entertain friends and family. The kitchen is large with room for serious cooks. The butler’s pantry stocks ample dishes and glassware. Enjoy dinner in the dining room while watching the sunset.

The large bedrooms upstairs include: master bedroom with king size bed and private bath; guest room with queen size bed and private bath; three guest rooms with twin beds and shared bath.

The villages of Woods Hole and Falmouth are minutes away! Woods Hole is the home of the Marine Biological Laboratory with an outdoor aquarium. Falmouth offers a myriad of restaurants, boutique shops, art galleries, antique stores, and farmer’s markets. Boston is only 1.5 hours with regular bus service from Logan Airport to Falmouth and Woods Hole.

Perfect summer escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family celebration. The house was perfect for accommodating a crowd. The atmosphere has everything to take you back to a time when people stayed here for the whole summer. Great views. Private cove and beach. Kids and adults both paddled around in the water. Bath house.Big porch. Huge kitchen. Lots of bathrooms. Master bedroom looks out over the water. Close to town. It had something for everyone. We can't wait to go back.

Classsic Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! A wonderful house for family get-togethers and quiet summer vacations. The house itself is classic, tons of character and clearly well-loved. Very clean, well-maintained and plenty of space. No air conditioning, but it was cool and drafty inside even on very hot days. The huge covered porch is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon or watch the sunset, and you've got your own private beach!

We were there for the 4th of July. Don't miss the Quissett Parade if you get a chance!
