SPACIOUS COTTAGE WITH ENGLISH-STYLE GARDEN IN OSTERVILLE VILLAGE, CAPE COD

Osterville House Rental Photos and Description

Three Bedrooms, Two Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Elf Hill cottage is comprised of two double bedrooms, a third bedroom with two twin beds and a daybed for a child, two full bathrooms, a living room, dining room and sun room. There is an automatic garage. The house has been freshly painted, has hardwood floors upstairs and down, and is charmingly furnished. A particularly wonderful aspect of the cottage is its spacious English-style garden. It is fenced-in for the peace of mind of parents of toddlers, and has a large outdoor shower. The hammock is the perfect spot for an afternoon nap or for reading whilst watching over children playing in the yard. The east-facing patio is a lovely spot for breakfast.

A pass allowing access to all public and private beaches in the area is included in the rental. Dowses Beach, a beautiful private beach with a cove on one side (perfect for small children) and the ocean on the other is five minutes down the road by car. Joshua’s Pond, a large fresh-water pond with a small sandy beach, is right around the corner. Elf Hill cottage is in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet Main Street, with its collection of wonderful restaurants, art galleries and tasteful clothing and gift shops, is a five-minute walk away.

A central, village location in Osterville is highly valued as many homes require a car for getting about. At Elf Hill, you could find yourself going for days without getting behind the steering wheel.

Very cosy, clean and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5
It was a perfect holiday cottage, we all loved the house and the garden, there was a very nice pond right next to the cottage, the Joshuas Pond, the surrounding was very well discribed, customer service was excellent. We loved the farm market in Oysterville.

Lovely Cape Cod Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about our stay in this charming cottage! The house was very clean, well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals, and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and a fantastic freshwater pond. Its description and photos are very accurate. The backyard is a great space for kids to play, and we loved sitting out on the patio and soaking up the summer weather. We also made good use of the beach pass and enjoyed a lot of time at nearby Dowse's Beach. We can't wait to return!

A great week in a lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage sight unseen, on the basis of its online listing and pictures (the yard and garden were the deciding factors).The description turned out to be delightfully accurate: house and grounds were gracious, clean, well maintained, and user-friendly inside and out. There was plenty of space for the six of us: two grandparents, two parents, and young boys aged 3 and 6. There was room in the backyard for games of hide-and-seek and wiffle-ball, and the landscaping provided privacy from nearby houses. We usually ate in (most often on the outdoor patio), because the kitchen was well equipped, but there are good restaurants and food stores within walking or biking distance. The beach pass that came with the rental gave us access to the pleasant, sandy, relatively uncrowded town beach, and also to a beautiful freshwater pond within easy walking distance. The owner lives abroad but was quick to answer our questions, and the local caretaker came within minutes of our calling to fix a small problem (a clogged shower drain). Friends who visited us were similarly impressed and are considering renting the cottage themselves next summer--so, yes, I would certainly recommend the property.

Charming Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved everything about this charming cottage. We had plenty of space, a lovely backyard to relax in while our youngest stayed occupied on the swing set, we were able to walk into town or to the fabulous pond with sandy beach.
The cottage was extremely clean and provided all the amenities one would need.
The owners were readily available to answer questions before and during our stay. Top customer service!
We would most definitely recommend this property to our family and friends and would rent again ourselves.

Hassel- free and very kid friendly

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely home! Check-in was very easy and it was nice to know there was a local person near by to handle any issues if they should arise. The home was clean and cozy. Every thing was right where we needed it. The location could not be better, even though we visited in the fall, we were able to walk to the pond in minutes. It was nice to be able to walk to get my moring coffee, as well. Thank you for a stress free holiday!

Clean and charming cottage in Osterville!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful visit to Osterville and very much enjoyed staying in this cottage! We were greeted with fresh flowers when we arrived and found the cottage to be clean and ready for us. We also enjoyed the short stroll to town and Joshua's Pond, the swing set for the kids, and the pretty landscaping. Checking in and out of this cottage was also very easy. We also liked that it's only a short drive to the beaches. We will rent here again. Enjoy!

The village of Osterville is located on the south central coast of Cape Cod on Nantucket Sound. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful and desirable villages on the Cape, and is prized for its quaint Main Street, its beautiful New England architecture, and its picturesque, warm-water beaches and harbor.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy walking, running, biking, golfing, fishing, crabbing, oystering, kayaking, whale-watching and boating throughout the area, and there are myriad activities for children. Boston is about an hour and twenty minutes’ drive, and Hyannis, with its airport and ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, is ten minutes away.
