About the property

Extremely Well Kept Quaint Cottage in Bass River Beach area

If you want a perfect cape cod beach vacation, our well-kept, circa 1960 cape cod ranch style cottage with wi-fi is a half mile from the best beaches in South Yarmouth / Bass River area. Walk to exclusive Middle Beach with white sand, gentle waves, and scenic views, or Bass River Beach with its fishing pier, benches, extensive parking and beach. Walk to Parkers Beach with a children's play area, the historic windmill with scenic picnic overlook to Bass River, take nearby ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket for day trips, and everything you need for the perfect Cape Cod vacation.

Everyone loves our outdoor fully enclosed shower. The house is nestled among pine trees in a quiet, family neighborhood, with private yard, picnic table, and adirondack chairs. Complete cape cod country charm, with hardwood floors, updated and fully equipped kitchen, enclosed finished porch, and a clean and neat place to enjoy free time for the whole family. The Bass River location is near everything for the beach, day trips, islands, whale watch, boat rides on Bass River, shopping in outlets or quaint seaside towns, antiques, adventure mini golf, outer Cape exploration, bike paths, National Seashore, hiking and nature trails, scenic harbors, the best fried clams, historic 6A, and fabulous seafood or waterfront dining. You can walk, bike, or drive to beaches, and enjoy glorious sunsets with your family. Beaches are on the Cape's south side with clean white sand, smaller waves, warmer water, no big undertow, facilities, family friendly and a feeling of being on a truly fabulous private beach, like beaches in the Carribean.

Five people maximun sleep comfortably with 2 bedrooms, one has a full size bed, the other has 2 twin beds, plus a bonus room with another twin bed, comfortable living room and dining, extra dining chairs, and one full bath inside plus a fully enclosed hot and cold outdoor shower.

About Elaine Berke

I fell in love with the cape cod country charm of this house from day one. I love being at the cape, going to the beaches, or being close to many Cape activities. I leave a list of Fun Things to Do or explore. Events and booklets from each town on the cape are available. We care deeply about the condition of the cottage and guests who rent at our house.

Elaine Berke purchased this house in 1985

Why Elaine Berke chose South Yarmouth

This property is best for a family or group of 5 or less looking for a great beach location and manageable place to stay. You can cook, have coffee, microwave, or spend time outside. Supermarkets and stores of all kinds are very accessible about a mile away on route 28.

Perfect for a cape getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of 7/18. My family enjoyed the home and its yard. The home is perfect for all families. We have a 3 and a 5 yr old and they were right at home. We biked to the beaches within 5 mins, walked to the nearby bakery every morning and enjoyed the backyard for Wiffleball and Can Jam. I would recommend this home to everyone. It is located in a great neighborhood and kids can play without the parents worrying about traffic, very quiet area. Close to all shops, restaurants, and family fun activity. Looking forward to going back next year!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a young family. It is in a quiet neighborhood, yet is close to all fun activities including the beach, mini golf and parks. The house was clean, comfortable, and felt like home. The kids felt like they were at home and want to come back soon. I would recommend this house to everyone. I can't wait to come back next summer.
