I stayed here for the weekend of July 4th and had a fantastic time. There is a small park nearby that has a bocce ball court (I used the bocce ball set in the house). The house is right on the water, with a fantastic sandbar on which we set up beach chairs and umbrellas and relaxed while watching the boats travel up and down the waterway. The house is about a mile away from the main beach in Mashpee but we opted for the sandbar most of the time. The nearby town of Falmouth, which has a great beach for families and some shopping, provided a fantastic fireworks show, and a great July 4th day celebration. Enjoying the salty air fill my lungs each morning when I stepped out on the back deck was probably one of the best parts of the whole experience. I can not say enough about my experience here, and I will likely be returning.
