Location

Car: Recommended

The house is located on Lewis Pond with almost 3 acres of private grounds with lovely landscaping. The sunsets are breathtaking. Kayaks or canoes are perfect for wildlife viewing on the pond and the fishing is great. Cotuit is reminiscent of Old Cape Cod with lovely homes, tree lined streets, home grown 4th of July parade, (no glitz or fast food takeout), within walking distance are a 9 hole golf course, town boat landing, Kettleers ball field, post office, excellent library with special children's programs, kids' playground, General Store, nature preserves with walking trails, many leading to the ocean, and 3 excellent beaches. A shopping center is 10 minutes away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1948

About the owner: I have been coming to Cotuit since 1946. My parents purchased the property in 1947 and it has been a family retreat for these many years. I met my husband on the beach in Cotuit in 1947 and now live summers in the home he shared with his parents. We all had a love affair with Cotuit which continues to this day.

Why the Owner Chose Cotuit, Barnstable, MA, USA:
The property is almost 3 acres and extremely private with exceptional views and proximity to Lewis Pond. Although there is complete privacy. you are extremely close to the village amenities, all within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This has been our family cottage since the late 40s. Two generations have loved and maintained it. Third and fourth generations hopefully will delight in the charm of small town friendliness and activities. Cotuit retains the charm of earlier years and has not succumbed to fast food venues and glitz. It is true Cape Cod with tree lined streets, sea captain's homes with their charming widow's walks, bicycle paths, and safe walking trails.
