Falmouth Waterfront: Charming Waquoit Bay Three Bedroom Cottage
About Blake Cullimore
This is a family owned house, all of whom have spent time on the bay with fond memories of sailing, rowing, swimming, clamming, exploring, sitting, reading, and generally embodying summer on the Cape at its idyllic best. With my two children (7 and 4) and often a friend or two of theirs we spend several weeks of the summer exploring beaches and Washburn island. It is our hope that whoever joins us to experience Waquoit becomes a friend and an annual guest.
Blake Cullimore purchased this Cottage in 1926
Why Blake Cullimore chose East Falmouth
The cottage was built in 1926 by my great grandfather and has been used as a vacation home or all season home since then. As generations of us have spent our summers on the Bay, it is the perfect location for a family, individual, or couple looking to relax and slow down.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is sometimes nothing better than watching the comings and goings of life on the water. The house enjoys a near perfect location for a sunrise across the bay with views that extend 2 miles down-bay. While the area has plenty of public beach access. You can swim, Quohog, crab, and build sand castles right in front of the house. You can also go down bay and have access to incredible beaches on Vineyard sound or in the bay where the shallow water stays warm and inviting, perfect for children and lazing about.

Amazing little place with incredible view!
We were blown away! The view is incredible all hours of the day and even in bad weather. The private beach was magical, had several fires in the fire pit and watched the sun set. Place was spotlessly clean and very cozy. Blake was a wonderful host. Would recommend to anyone and plan on coming back one day.
Best house ever
Theres not enough space to say how awesome the house is. Fantastic home, amazing views and a great beach.
We loved it all.
Quintessential Cape Cod Cottage
We loved our stay at Sunrise Point. The house is charming, white painted clapboard, lighthouse painted cabinets, lovely gardens, plenty of space for my family and the view than cannot be described properly. It was breathtaking. I stayed with my husband and kids. My kids are came and went as their work schedule allowed but it was a wonderful landing place for everyone to enjoy the Cape. The private beach was wonderful. Swimming was good if you're not afraid of seaweed....we used paddle boards and boogie boards, tubes, etc to splash around and cool off. Wasn't sure if we were allowed to use the grill in the basement but it looks like it hadn't been used in a while so we didn't bring it out. It would have been great to have a grill there but we used a small one we brought from home. The beds were comfortable. All the rooms were decorated very cute. Lots of seating for just hanging out inside. The breakfast nook was big enough for all of us. We had a blast and would love to come back again! It's a beautiful home that I feel very lucky to have been able to enjoy for a week.
thanks so much for the kind words! If you are ever back in the area let us know!
Lovely location and comfortable cottage
Enjoyed the sailing and swimming, both at the cottage and at the local beach.
glad you enjoyed your stay!
Falmouth is a town of villages all with something unique to offer. One of our favorites is to take the bike path to Wood Hole. All except the first couple miles is all along the waterfront is about a 10 miles ride. For a shorter ride, drive to Woods Hole and take the bike path along the old rail line back towards town and stop whenever and turn around and go back to your starting point or noodle around Woods Hole and grab a drink. You will not be disappointed.
Also, for a great day trip ride to the ferry and take your bike over too Martha's Vineyard for the day. I think its best to do it by bike vs walking/bus and its cheaper than taking the car over never-mind the hassle factor.
There are a number of places that do sunset cruises, and an old schooner in Falmouth Harbor is one of the most enjoyable ways to see the sound and the cape from the water.
There are also wildlife conservation areas for bird watching and a childrens museum for the kids on a rainy day.
If you are roadtripping Provincetown is about an hour east all the way out to the end of the cape and is known for its arts lobster, whale watching and people watching. On the way, there is the Caper Cod National Seashore which encompasses 43 thousand acres on the east side of the cape has fabulous beachs, wildlife and bike trails.
