You'll feel right at home the moment you step inside the home's airy interior, boasting an open floor plan on two levels. Upstairs, the spacious living/dining area welcomes you with cathedral ceilings and eco-friendly bamboo floors. Large sliding glass doors beckon you to the wrap around deck, where you can relax under the shade of the towering pine trees and relish the evening's cool ocean breezes. The Master Bedroom with its king sized bed is conveniently located on this level.
Downstairs, a large bonus room provides additional space for indoor play or settling down with a good book or Facebook, courtesy of whole house WiFi. The bonus room contains a futon and a set of twin beds. Two guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with twin beds, are also located downstairs. Here, the back door opens onto the huge grassy back yard, screened from the neighbors by tall pines. Its perfect for an outdoor party, pinata, or game of croquet. Just outside the back door you will find the enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water, handy for cleanup as you amble home from your day of activities. Enjoy a nap in the hammock under the whispering pines.
There are two private sandy Seascape Association beaches within a few quiet blocks of the Cottage. Use the supplied beach cart and chairs to take the easy stroll, or drive if you wish; there's always plenty of parking. The calm waters of Buzzards Bay tend to be the warmest on the Cape, inviting swimming both earlier and later in the season. Walk far out on the jetty at Sunset Beach, and catch sight of the seagulls and cormorants fishing from the rocks. The Association also maintains a boat launch ramp, dinghy dock, and kayak storage. Bring your own kayak, or rent one for your stay.
Carney Cottage has everything you'll need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The large eat-in kitchen features a gas stove and all the accessories you might need, even an antique lobster pot! A 55" 3D HDTV comes with expanded basic cable, 3D glasses, and a DVD player, complete with a supply of ocean-themed DVD's. Wireless internet access throughout the home, a propane grill on the deck, full sized washer and dryer, and central heat and air make for easy living. Carney Cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind during your Cape Cod stay.
In the Village of North Falmouth you will find several good restaurants (menus included in a case marked “Our Favorite Places”). The famed Old Silver Beach is just a 20 minute bike ride away. Bike rentals are available in the Village, at the head of the Shining Sea Bikeway, a 10-mile mostly flat paved trail that extends all the way to Woods Hole. Kayak rentals are available nearby and there are a number of golf courses in the area. You’ll find great shopping and a grocery store at nearby Mashpee Commons. Just a short drive away is charming downtown Falmouth with its shops and restaurants. You'll find picturesque Falmouth Harbor, outdoor summer concerts, and the Island Queen Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. Check out the historic Highfield Hall and the extensive gardens surrounding this mansion. Beyond Falmouth, of course, is Woods Hole, home of the world renowned Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute with its unique small aquarium.
We hope you will consider Carney Cottage for your next Cape getaway. We’d love to have you!
