Fun! Fun! Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is great fun even in the stormy, stark weather of Massachusetts. Drive on the dirt road into

the beautiful coastal landscape abundant with wildlife. Park near the weathered shed or under the trees

and then walk up the nautical styled ramp past a bountiful vegetable garden with direct access to the

cooking patio and well stocked kitchen. This 1950s classic shingled cottage sits atop a bluff overlooking

a spectacular warm water bay just a few steps away. It is simple and spartan with floors and furnishings

of pine. Step back in time as you choose a clean, cozy bedroom with beautiful views from the antique

windows. This prime location offers a gorgeous beach with a serious tent for shade, plenty of beach

chairs, a substantial ocean raft, and jetties for fishing. Take a solar outdoor shower and then sip cocktails

under the umbrella on the ocean facing deck with music piped outdoors. You’ll find all the modern

amenities of a gourmet kitchen, laundry room, and wifi if you want them. Feel the delicious breeze through

the cottage windows while watching the kite surfers sail into the sunset. Get your rest for the morning’s

bike ride on the landmark bike trail just past the dirt road entrance … a perfect Cape Cod vacation.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a family or two. Plenty of bed space, fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and more. It's not fancy. But if what you value is a gorgeous beach (no other spot on this beach was nicer or more private) and relaxation, then this is it for you. And the owners were fantastically helpful. Our kids loved it; we loved it. We'll be back!

This classic beach cottage is nestled in the dunes overlooking beautiful Buzzards Bay. Enjoy your vacation steps from the beach where you can spend time on a private beach with access to two jetties and a mile of open beachfront for walking. The house is located in a private neighborhood that sits between the ocean and a salt marsh. Bring your bikes and ride on the Shining Sea bike path to Falmouth or Woods Hole. Enjoy the sunset from the west-facing expansive living room with 180 degree views of Buzzards Bay or the spacious new deck that overlooks the water.
