About the Property

Private lovely 4 bedroom home, close to Island ferries, antiquing, Melody Tent

Historic “Windy Knoll” is one of the lake’s original summer homes, and today is one of its few remaining original structures. Located on Little Point of Lake Wequaquet, the cottage is a prime spot for freshwater fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and leisurely swimming. The family friendly, Adirondack-style cottage is situated on two acres of land that offer privacy, as well as 150’ of waterfront, a private sandy beach and dock, and a circular driveway with plenty of parking. To the front and back of the house are large yards which are unique to homes on the lake and are great for activities such as whiffle ball, flag football, croquet or playing catch or Frisbee.

The property rental comes equipped with a gas barbecue grille, firewood, a canoe, two kayaks and many beach toys. The “Pottery Barn style” decorated house has 4 ½ bedrooms, one full bath, and a private outdoor shower, and is surrounded on three sides by porches, two of which offer incredible sunsets, including a screened-in eating area. The first floor open floor plan includes an indoor dining area and three casual and comfortable seating areas. One bedroom and the full bathroom adjoin the open living quarters on the main floor. The second floor opens up to loft-style bedrooms which make for a true vacation feel reminiscent of 50 years ago. Bed linens and towels are included in the rental. There is a rock stone fireplace which warms the house on a chilly day, making a nice atmosphere for reading, board games or relaxing inside. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, stove, microwave, refrigerator, blender, hand mixer, pots, pans, etc.

The cottage is perfectly situated on Cape Cod, five minutes from the south side beaches such as Craigville, Long and Dowses, and 10 minutes from Cape Cod Bay, Hyannis Whale Watches and antique stores to the north. Hyannis and Osterville shops, restaurants and entertainment are within 10 miles, as are the ferries to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Information as to where to go, and what to do is provided by the owners but while everything is conveniently close, don’t be surprised if after a week, you have only left the yard for food.
