About Dawn Clive
It is said...."There's something lyrical about cottages" "Cottages ring true to the image of America's favorite homes - one of a kind designs...in tune with nature". "Cottages are...intuitive, woven into the fabric of every cultures folk tales,...represent the universal home and are best defined by look and feel rather than architectural rules." M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman define a cottage as "intimate, bucolic, and quintessentialy expressive of the owner's imagination." Well, this cottage was imagined and expressed through the love of two people in 1924 and the owners have certainly inspired families who've lived here and their imagination over the last 94 years. It's hard to believe that when my parents first set eyes on this wonderful home and met the owners who held the key to their future in 1974, there then two year old daughter would some day come back to own and care for this special place herself. As it's Centennial year approaches may this home continue to serve the love that inspired it. I'm happy to share and offer this special place to you and your family, what ever you'd like to call it, home, cottage by the sea, beach bungalow, retreat, escape, getaway, sanctuary, respite, holiday home, gathering spot....the list is long and they all fit! I'm just happy to welcome you and happy this home continues to inspire young and old alike...so, please come and enjoy. I look forward to meeting you.

Full of love
The house is full of love, eclectic. Perfect time for our family.
I love older homes, full of character.
Lovely large space
We had an amazing time. The house is a very well kept, older property with lots of character. The plantings were beautiful, the fence around the entire property was perfect for our little dogs that joined us. I would certainly recommend this place and we intended on renting again next year.
A Healing House
What a beautiful beach experience for our entire family! From the moment we stepped onto the property, we could feel the positive energy. This "home away from home" is welcoming and comforting, and the nature preserve that surrounds it is unparalleled. There are flowers galore and stately trees that have been around even longer than this century-old home, which somehow manages to honor its history while providing every possible modern convenience a vacationing family needs. We were impressed by the raised-bed gardens, the huge wisteria-shaded deck, the berry bushes that invite you to gather a handful of sun-ripened sweetness, and the friendly chickens that manage to help the most frazzled family members unwind. Plus, it's only steps from the beach - a five minute walk, even for a dawdler.
Dawn Clive is a lovely hostess and was friendly and informative from the moment we arrived, yet we had our privacy, as well. The kitchen is well-equipped and it was delightful to cook on the Chambers stove: yes, it is also perfect for baking!
The home is clean and the beds are comfortable - every single person slept like a baby due to the combination of fresh air and cozy surroundings. Have teenagers? The WiFi connection is solid and perfect for streaming video as well as gaming.
This is a stellar property and an exquisite experience - we will definitely be vacationing here again!
Dawn’s house was just right for our family. Spacious and well kept. Dawn was a gracious host and we greatly enjoyed our stay.
Our Happy Place!
We had an excellent time staying at Dawns home in Manomet. We are very familiar with the area and Dawns home gave us a place to gather after the beach and make long lasting memories. The charm of her home takes you back to what life was like before everyone became attached to electronics. We gathered every day after the beach on the deck and then moved to the dining room for dinner and games . I would highly recommend a stay here!
On site, you'll find two single person kayaks perfect for exploring inner Cape Cod Bay/Manomet coast lines. Fishing on & off shore for Striped Bass. Seal watching. Photography, Painting, Beach Combing at low tides in and around the rocky bluffs. 1.5 mile sandy beach is perfect for an early morning or late afternoon walk along the shoreline. Sand castles!
Within a 5 minute walk from the house there's a corner store, supermarket, beer/wine venue, coffee shop, ice cream, sub/deli shop, pizza, breakfast/lunch diners, Chinese, fresh sea food, Italian, Greek, a great little Thai take out place, P.O., library, churches, The Antique Chapel, Day Spa, red box DVD rentals, and more.
In Downtown Plymouth (a 10 minute drive) there are more restaurants (including Thai, Mexican, Wharf/Seafood Dining...), championship golf courses, antique shops, boutiques, museums, evening shows/dancing/outdoor & indoor concerts.
