Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This rustic and charming New England style cottage offers the perfect summer antidote to a busy and hectic life. It is an unpretentious, simple house with wooden floors and walls, a large kitchen that seats 8 and a big dining room that seats 10 - though we have had as many as 16! The covered front porch is ideal for breakfast coffee or late afternoon drinks; the side porch is perfect for BBQ and lounging in the sun. (Note: Rental period is May through Oct.)
The cottage faces a fine 9-hole golf course and is a minute walk from 6 excellent clay tennis courts (groomed by staff). Three beaches with safe swimming, pier and diving board are a 5 minute walk; plus, the beach chairs are already there for you. There are safe paths and roads ideal for running, biking or strolling. There is even a camp for your kids!

I hesitated to write a review because I did not want anyone else to know about this gem. Two weeks was not long enough! Clean, spacious, everything we could want, including 2 great bikes, and badminton! There is something for everyone from my 90 year old father to little ones. If you want a real change from the modern world, this is it. Big windows catch the breezes, beach, tennis, and golf literally right out the front door! Although there is internet, there is no TV which was wonderful. Lots of pictures of the generations of the same family who have loved this
house. We just booked it for next year for as many weeks as we could get! I am so glad that places like this still exist.
Lovely spot. Clean, great kitchen, quiet location, comfortable beds. Truly beautiful views within easy walking distance--dramatic but accessible. (Great swimming, too!)
My husband and I stayed here for several weeks in September and had an absolutely glorious time! I simply can not overstate this — we can't imagine a better place or time to vacation, and we've traveled to many countries. During our September stay, the days were sunny and warm, the nights cool and perfect for sleeping, and the water was perfect; it was absolutely heavenly during my early morning swims and late afternoon dips (following tennis and before cocktails). We had several different couples come and stay with us and each and every one of them said the same thing: "How did you find this place? This is paradise!"
We have rented houses every summer in this region and this by far was the best. Lots of bedrooms, a cozy yet open, laid back interior, and most importantly, a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches around (with beach chairs and toys provided!!) We are not big golfers or tennis players but if you are, both are steps away. Neighbors are great. Everyone is very friendly. I could go on....
The "I wish I never had to leave house"
Loved the house the moment we saw it.We stayed 2 weeks in the house and would 've stayed longer if available. Has everything you could need . rustic charm with all the modern conviences.The house demanded relaxation. Spacious and comfortable. Big enough for our large family but with plenty of cozy corners. Many family moments enjoyed in the private yard. Wonderful to have an area big enough for us to enjoy a meal together or play board games on the rainy days. Easy walk to beach. The beach was uncrossed and picturesque. The Bay was great for small boat and kayaking. Yard and neighborhood very pet friendly.Owner great to work with. We were also very appreciative of The history and photos about the house It only added more charm to a great home. thanks for sharing it!

South and west of Nonquitt offers miles of beautiful countryside, charming small towns (Russells Mills, Westport), and ocean beaches. North of Padanarum is more developed, offering many restaurants, shopping, antique stores, cinemas, and the historic town of New Bedford. Those who know of Nonquitt consider it equal to anything you can find on Cape Cod.
