Overview

About the property

Welcome to COMPASS ROSE COTTAGE - The Quintessential Cape Cod Cottage

Ideally located on a quiet street steps away from Flax Pond, and just over 2 miles to Mayflower Beach, plus convenient to all that Dennis and the Cape have to offer. Decorated with local art and pottery, along with antique pieces discovered in the area, this charming cottage is the perfect Cape Cod getaway.

A great traditional knotty pine cottage with inviting living areas highlighted with vaulted wood beamed ceilings, it is appointed with a fully equipped retro kitchen with breakfast bar seating and skylight.

The inviting living room space is bright and airy, and has a sleeper sofa with full size bed. There is a dining table for 4, and an additional sitting area to relax in.

The two cozy bedrooms are also tongue and groove pine panelled; one with a full bed, the other with a twin bed. The comfy nook in the sunroom, with antique daybed equipped with custom mattress and box spring, is a wonderful spot to curl up with a good book, or to sleep the night away.

The cottage has one full bath with stall shower, a 32 Inch Hi Def TV , Cable, High Speed WIFI, gas BBQ grill, wood shed with beach supplies, 2 bicycles, and 2 kayaks, and an outdoor deck with a dining area where you can sit back and enjoy.

There is a window air conditioner and tower room fans if needed, and a wonderful cross-breeze that usually comes through the many windows of the cottage.

A private outdoor shower with hot and cold water and separate changing area provides the perfect experience after a day at the beach.

The nearby beaches are perfect for young and old alike. Splash around in the bay beaches at high tide or explore the miles of tidal pools at low tide.

You can also choose to walk around the corner to secluded Flax Pond (cottage has deeded beach rights), which provides a nice alternative to sunny days at the ocean. You’ll love being able to kayak, canoe, sail a sunfish, swim, or float the day away, in the shady calm warm water Flax Pond provides. Take a relaxing walk through the miles of nature trails that surround Flax Pond, and discover the second small sandy beach on the other side of the pond.

Dennis offers 16 beaches including Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, and numerous freshwater ponds. There are 2 championship golf courses, and a charming village with many quaint shops, restaurants, ice cream parlor, library, The Cape Playhouse, Cape Cinema, art galleries, and museums, all located a few minutes away on historic Route 6A.

And let's not forget Captain Frosty's, one of Cape Cod's best seafood shacks, just a short walk outside the neighborhood, for some delicious fried seafood and chowder, or for a sweet ice cream treat!

We feel you’ll agree that Compass Rose Cottage is the perfect place to create your wonderful Cape Cod memories.

About Gene and Carol Petraglia

We have enjoyed many years vacationing on Cape Cod and had always dreamed of one day owning our own place there. We are thrilled to be the proud owners of this wonderful cottage. We have spent considerable time improving the cottage and adding our own touches, with local art and pottery, and some antique pieces found on Cape Cod, along with the addition of a fabulous new outdoor shower. We were able to keep the feel of a traditional Cape Cod getaway, but didn't forget the modern conveniences. We rent the Compass Rose Cottage to guests and enjoy it ourselves. We hope you enjoy our home and The Cape as much as we do.

Why Gene and Carol Petraglia chose Dennis

The Compass Rose Cottage provides a traditional Cape Cod getaway experience that is a wonderful escape from everyday life. Located in a quiet neighborhood, steps away from a lovely shaded fresh water pond surrounded by trails, it is the perfect spot to get outside and explore from. With its close proximity to Dennis Village and its central Mid-Cape location, it is the ideal location to enjoy all that Cape Cod has to offer.

Very charming cottage centrally located on the Cape.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Cape. We were not disappointed with our choice of lodging. A wonderful, comfortable cottage with all the amenities. Gene and Carol have done an excellent job of supplying the cabin with all of your kitchen and cooking needs.This was a great place to unwind. We took advantage of the peaceful surroundings by enjoying our morning coffee in the sun room and deck with a great view of the pond. If you're traveling to the Cape and want it all the Compass Rose is where you want to be.

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to have Bob and Tonya at the Compass Rose Cottage for their very first trip to Cape Cod. We had good communication before and during their trip, and everything went very smoothly. We were happy to hear that they were comfortable at the cottage and enjoyed the amenities, the location, and everything the Cape had to offer. We hope to have them back!

Very cute and clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

Would have enjoyed our week more if we had been closer to the pond. This was probably just our issue. As 75 year olds the distance was more of a problem than it should have been. Otherwise it was a comfortable and relaxing week

Lovely Memorial Day weekend at the Compass Rose Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the cottage with our 11 month old twin boys. Cottage looks small when you first enter but it has all amenities required for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is well equipped . Shed has all things that one needs to enjoy at the beach. My twins loved being in the hammock in the back yard. We would love to go back sometime soon. Thank you Carol and Gene for letting us enjoy your cottage.

Owner's Response: It was great to have Rimjhim and her family staying at the Compass Rose Cottage. We were glad to hear that her and her husband, and adorable twin boys were all comfortable at the cottage and enjoyed getting out and exploring Cape Cod. We hope to have them back the next time they visit the area.

TINY - CUTE - HOMEY - PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

The Compass Rose Cottage provided an ideal setting for a truly wonderful visit with my sister and my father. We enjoyed the cute decor, and the clean environment, and the fact that this charming, older cottage has had just enough updates to make it comfortable. It was SPOTLESS, and the beds were comfy. The smaller bedroom was mine, and I loved it - probably the coziest place I have ever slept. The check in and check out instructions were simple, and easy to follow. Our only regret was that we spent so much time exploring the Cape we did not enjoy the cabin to its fullest, but it provided a perfect place to settle in after a long day on the beaches. THANKS so much for a wonderful stay!!

Exactly as advertised. Cozy and quiet. A good value.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was clean. All linens were included and they were high quality. The neighborhood is very quiet. Small extras made us smile and feel like special guests: a jar of granola bars, nice shampoo and conditioner, bicycles, a little selection of games. We had a wonderful time here!
