Upwind is better than advertised. The location on Lewis Bay is convenient to the Island ferries, JFK Memorial in Hyannis and all that the Cape has to offer. The beach on Lewis Bay in front of the house is just big enough for the area, never crowded, with warm water and gentle surf., and just a few miles down Route 28 are larger beaches and a really good restaurant, The Skipper. The cottage itself has all the amenities you would need; towels, beach chairs, etc. and a really cool outside shower to rinse off the salt and sand. We would definitely recommend this home to our family and friends.
