We've lived in the greater Boston area for 20 years. My wife and I have enjoyed Cape Cod for most of our lives. We recently purchased this charming cottage overlooking a private beach and protected bay. It is the perfect place for our family and our children love the area.
Greg purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Greg chose Pocasset
We love this location given the beautiful view and sunsets. The private beach just steps away is accessible by a one-of-a-kind tiny footbridge. We love strolling the beach and walking to the point of the stone jetty at the mouth of the Pocasset River to watch the boats come and go. It is also a terrific fishing location to catch a stripped bass. The cottage has a beautiful backyard and lawn and is set up on a bluff overlooking the beach and bay. You can also go quaohoging (clamming) at low tide in the shallows right off the beach. There are many fun water-related activities you can enjoy while staying at this serene location.
What makes this Cottage unique
The beach is the perfect place to launch kayaks, pull up a boat for a day trip, or just relax with your feet in the water. You can also enjoy the sun in the backyard reading a book or sipping a glass of wine taking in the gorgeous view. The private association is filled with families and you are sure to get many a friendly smile as you stroll Tahanto Road along the water.

A nice relaxing vacation
This is our second year staying at this adorable cottage. The cottage was impeccably clean, well stocked and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors very friendly. You are walking distance to a shell filled beach and the evening sunsets are beautiful. My husband and I would recommend Greg’s cottage for anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.

Best cottage !!
Beautiful property right on the water
We had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. It was well equipped including bedding and towels unlike many of the rentals in the area. The location allowed us easy accessibility to other areas on the Cape we wanted to explore. It was only a twenty minute drive to the ferry landing for Martha’s Vineyard. We enjoyed walks on the beach in the evenings, and several of the local restaurants are fantastic! Greg checked in on us to make sure everything was going well and to help in any way. Our first trip to Cape Cod was wonderful and if we ever make it back we would definitely stay here again!
Great Cape Cottage
We stayed 7 nights in early June of 2018. We were looking for a place with a beach cottage feel and we were not disappointed. The cottage was clean, well decorated, and the kitchen is well stocked with all the appliances, pots & pans, utensils, plates, silverware, etc. that you would need. That includes, Kuerig coffee maker, a griddle, waffle maker and a lobster pot. (We heated water for our lobster inside, and then brought the pot outside to the gas grill and cooked them out there.)
Greg, the owner, had everything we needed to know very well mapped out and provided us with plenty of info. for shopping, restaurants and other local activities. He was very friendly and professional in every aspect of our stay.
There were a few cons to the cottage: The mattress in the master has a sag in the middle, causing my wife and I to both roll toward the center of the bed; it wasn't the worst for sleeping. Upstairs, one of the mattresses was not comfortable for my daughter (twin bed closest to middle of upstairs). Both cases, not a deal breaker by any means. Another con is the size of the bathroom; it's just small! They made good use of the space they had to work with, it just gets tight. The shower is plenty roomy, and the bathroom itself is updated and clean.
The cons noted would not keep us from returning to this cottage again. There was so much to like about our stay that those issues were easily overcome. As I try to find the words to help others get a feel for this place, I think it comes down to everything was clean and pleasant, had a nice view of Buzzards Bay that we spent hours staring at from either the living room window or from the back yard (outdoor table, chairs & umbrella!) The beach is easily accessed with a short walk down the road. Beach is fairly rocky, but you can find sandy areas if you look around at low tide.
It wouldn't let me do half stars; otherwise I would have given it a 4 1/2 rating!
