About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
The cottage offers a new kitchen with full sized gas stove, dishwasher and full sized refrigerator.
The captains quarters has a full size bed. The first mates quarters has two twin bunk beds. There is a futon in the family room to provide extra sleeping space for company. There is one bath with a stand up shower. The family/dining areas are adjacent to the kitchen.
The open floor plan and cathedral ceilings offers a great sense of space. Cottage screen doors (yes, you will here that 'slam' that brings you back to your childhood!) at either end of the cottage bring in wonderful light and a relaxing ocean breeze.
The cottage will offer wifi and basic cable service for the family room TV (although the outdoors offers much better entertainment!).
You will arrive to find fresh linens, bath & beach towels and general kitchen, dining and cooking supplies.
As a guest, you will have access to Nanumet Heights private beach located just 85 downhill steps from the cottage.
It is a short walk into the village, where you can find restaurants, a beautiful rolling sandy public beach, events such as live music, kids movie night, ice cream and more!
Located less than 2 miles from the cottage is Buzzards Bay, where you can ride your bike or fish at the Cape Cod Canal park.
Just a short ride over the Bourne bridge will bring you into exciting Cape Cod where you can explore historical parks and museums ,catch a ferry to the islands or catch a train into Boston! For destinations, schedules and fares visit:
For the kids, you can visit the local water park, Water Wizz. A few Hollywood films were shot here. There is mini golf, bumper boats and go carts close by as well. Just a short ride up the highway into Carver, which is the cranberry capital of the world, you will find Edaville Railroad. There are amusement park ride, games, food and train rides, where Thomas the Tank Engine is featured.
Onset brings a true 'Cape Cod' feeling to your vacation…without having to get over 'the bridge' to start your fun!
This neighborhood is a mixture of seasonal rental and permanent residents. Many of the residents in this neighborhood are 2nd and 3rd generation and this is a lifestyle they choose year round! It is a friendly neighborhood, so be sure to say hello!
Believe it or not, the 'Ice Cream Man' (she is actually a women) tours the entire neighborhood, inlcuding the beach, usually two times a day. Be sure to have a couple dollars with you when your at the beach so you can grab a treat! (Warning: the distant music from the ice cream truck has been know to cause instant hysteria in small children!)
There is only one neighbor abutting this cottage, it is not the owner's primary residence and it does not rent out seasonally. Across the street is protected wetlands and a bird sanctuary. (in July, you can pick wild blackberries roadside) In short, you will have a good amount of privacy when you want it.
