Cottage by the Sea in Woods Hole w/ Private Beach - Near Falmouth & Ferry

Follow the dirt road to our 2BR (sleeps 4) cottage by the sea. With charming yet modernized character as well as a private beach plus access to the Shining Sea Bikeway, our rental offers you the chance to truly explore Cape Cod. Walk or bike to Falmouth, and hop on the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard.


Follow a private dirt road to our family cottage, park in the driveway and take a stone walkway across the lawn to our deck, where you’ll find seating for four for morning coffee and drinks overlooking the ocean. An additional upstairs deck offers even more views.

Wander on down to have lunch at the picnic table or dip your toes in the water at the private beach. There’s an outdoor shower for washing off the sand once you’re ready to come back inside.

From the deck, enter into the main gathering space. To your left is a sun-dappled living area with seating for seven on a bench and sofas. Turn on the 32” flat-screen TV for evening relaxation.

To your right, a dining area seats six with views of the ocean. Just beyond is a completely updated kitchen with hardwood floors, new cabinets, a Farmer’s double sink, and full-size appliances, including a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven, and microwave.

Off of the living area, you’ll find two bedrooms: one with two twins and tall windows, the other with a cozy queen. Both share a bathroom with the same hardwood floor as the kitchen, a new full-size shower, and a spacious vanity.

(We appreciate your interest and look forward to your stay. Please keep in mind that this property requires a 7-night minimum stay from mid-June through mid-September.)


Tucked atop a rolling lawn that leads down to the private beach, our sweet cottage offers you the chance to enjoy the ocean in privacy and comfort. Watch the waves roll in from the Adirondack chairs.

When you’re ready to explore, our rental backs onto the 10-mile long Shining Sea Bikeway, which leads to some of Cape Cod’s most beloved destinations. Make the one-mile trek into the Woods Hole for locally sourced seafood at Quicks Hole Tavern followed by freshly brewed coffee and homemade pie at Pie in the Sky, or to catch the ferry into Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. Woods Hole features world-renown Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, the Marine Biology Laboratory, the NOAA Fisheries Service, plus the US Coast Guard Station.

To experience the country’s oldest marine aquarium, drive 7-minutes to the Woods Hole Science Aquarium. On your trip back, stop at Woods Hole Historical Museum for a diorama view of Woods Hole circa-1895 in an old captain’s home.

The cottage was located in a fantastic spot between the Shining Sea Bikeway and a private beach. The views were so lovely, and the cottage was decorated very nicely. The space was mostly comfortable, although the single window AC unit had trouble keeping up on hot, humid days. It would have been nice to have a small dining table in the room with the picture window view of the ocean. The neighborhood was very quiet and well kept.

A wonderful week. The cottage is small, with two connected bedrooms, so you`d want to be fairly friendly with anyone you rented with. But it`s great for a small family, two twins in a room connected to a bedroom with a king. Nice walk-in shower and small dining area. Lovely small deck to eat at, and a rooftop patio accessible by an outside stairway. Also an outdoor shower. There`s a path to the private beach, but it involves climbing over a small stone wall to access it,plenty of lawn space to sit on or play on, and it`s a very short walk to a path to the bike path that runs into Woods Hole. Overall, a great place to spend a Cape Cod vacation! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

bottom line I would stay there again but... there were some issues with accommodations. recently done renovations especially appliances corners were cut. fridge broke while we were there, dishwashers sounds like the door was going to fall off, washer and dryer recently replaced with used machine and old machine left behind by the shower and sliding screen door also not working. property manager was very responsive to concerns and was willing to come and fix or replace things on the Friday which was our last full day. asked them to wait until the Saturday when we were checked out which they did. I imagine that these issues were addressed before the next renter arrived. Deck (porch) to sip wine or enjoy meals on the deck facing ocean (furniture shown was not there and only place to eat outside was on the picnic table on uneven terrain). it would be nice if the owner provided some chaise lounges to enjoy the outdoors but only had old dated furnishing.

The cottage was awesome. The location, the beach, the entire setting were all perfect. There were a few issues though. The biggest one was that the washer and dryer did not work upon our arrival. Secondly, there were ants and they liked the kitchen and any food that you might leave on the counter. Neither of these issues were deal breakers for us, although it sure would have been nice to have had a working washer and dryer because we had traveled light in reliance on their availability. In any event, we had a super time and really enjoyed the place. We would definitely book this cottage again.

The cottage was SO CUTE! Sandwiched between very elegant homes, with stunning views and beaches! The home was quite clean and had all of the basics provided! A nearby walking/biking path was a perfect way to get into town, or just sightsee, as it went through a bird preserve as well. We could not have loved this trip more!

Our family of four had a fantastic time at this property over Memorial Day weekend. The house was clean and comfortable, and the beach and view were simply amazing. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the bike trail. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This was a great getaway for my wife and I! We enjoyed the Small Cottage with beautiful views of the sound and Martha`s Vineyard. Walking access to Woods Hole and the Ferry! Very quiet and relaxing! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
