Lovely oceanfront cottage w/ deck and panoramic views!

You'll love this quiet, charming, oceanfront, restored 1920s cottage with updates on a private dirt road. This is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sea. You'll wake up each morning greeted by exceptional views of Cape Cod Bay, and possibly seals sunbathing on the nearby rocks. The private beach is accessible via stone steps next door, and a short walk on a country road brings you to two conservation beaches for walking and swimming. You may also escape to Cape Cod (the bridge is five miles down the road) or head up to historic Plymouth for the day.

What’s nearby:
If you're a fan of early American history, Plymouth is the perfect getaway! Visit Plimoth Plantation, a replica of the original village first settled in 1620. Don’t forget Plymouth Rock and the replica of the Mayflower soon to be returning. Situated in Pilgrim Memorial State Park, the rock is believed to be the spot where the Pilgrims first stepped foot on American soil. A ship- and rope-building mecca in the 19th century, Plymouth today boasts myriad historical sites, colonial architecture, shopping venues, and over 400 restaurants. The cottage is also five miles from the Sagamore Bridge, so you can also enjoy Cape Cod's beaches, quaint seaside villages, and wonderful seaside restaurants.

My two friends and I were in desperate need of a peaceful getaway from our stressful jobs (what a year to be educators!) and we found just what we needed at the retreat cottage! The house was impeccably clean and well-stocked with everything we needed to cook, shower, and sleep comfortably. The house both feels pleasantly secluded, but is just a few minutes away from a town center with a grocery store, where we did our food shopping. Our trip was on Halloween weekend, and the hosts surprised us by leaving a small Halloween display with candy, favors, and a card on the coffee table– a warming touch of hospitality that set the tone for a happy stay. Of course, the best part was the view! We spent hours on the back porch and down on the beach when the tide was low, collecting smooth rocks and watching seals on the boulders offshore. The gentle sound of the ocean was the perfect soundtrack for what proved to be a perfect destress weekend. We are grateful to our hosts, and we will certainly be back!

Highly recommend - gorgeous views all day and all night of Cape cod bay! Loved waking up to the sounds of the seals hanging on their rocks in the water.

Our hosts were wonderful and very responsive prior to our arrival the home is clean and views are absolutely stunning! We spent most of our time on the large deck. Walked up the street on morning and saw some beautiful elk. Will definitely be back and highly recommend!

The property is located right on the ocean, with a lovely veranda and access to a small, rocky private beach. The beach is only accessible during low tide, but that’s not a problem as low tide happens twice daily and lasts ~6hrs each time.

Inside, there are:
two standard bedrooms and one childrens’ room,
large kitchen with a nice stove, microwave, and refrigerator,
large living room with futon,
large sun room
small dining room
one and a half baths.

Spaces were well-maintained and clean. Hardwood floors and wood paneling provide special charm and a feeling of relaxed comfort.

Recommend for small groups and families.

Beautiful sunrises over Cape Cod Bay. An unobstructed view of all of Cape Cod on the horizon. A rocky natural coastline with many seals and shore birds. Drive to a sandy beach park nearby. Classic summer cottage with some modern touches. It is isolated, not a biking area.

Very cute, well maintained beach house. Close to everything in Plymouth.

This home was so charming and right on the water with views that will not disappoint! Property was very clean and well cared for. We spent one day at Ellisville Park which was minutes away and second day took a short 25 minute drive to sightseeing spots, great restaurants, and Mayflower Brewing in Plymouth. Sleeping to the sound of the water was so peaceful and it was fun waking up to see seals on the rocks near by. Will look to book again and would recommend to a friend.

Location was great. Cottage was quaint and quite nice. Very small bathrooms were unfortunate but comes with the territory of a cottage. Plenty of room.

Very private. Perfect view.
Just need a coffee maker.
There was a keurig machine but no keurig coffee capsules..
Should let people arriving that they need to provide their own keurig coffee capsules.

The house is a classic Cape house and right on the water. It is lovely, comfortable, and very private. The kitchen is fully equipped except that there is no dishwasher. There are thoughtful touches throughout the house for guests. The house sits directly on the bay, but a storm last year took much of the beach away. There is access to a rock beach through stone stops next door. A sandy beach is a 2 minute drive and a .5 mile walk, Ellisville Harbor State Park. A group of seals live directly in front of the house and are fun to watch and to listen to their eerie singing. There are also lots of chipmunks about, which this Californian found adorable. While the house is in its own world, there is a small shopping center with everything you need just a 5 minute drive. Plymouth is 20-30 minutes away if you want museums and the ferry to Provincetown.
My family can't wait to go back and enjoy this unique vacation home!
