Our 10th year of Summer rentals! Summerwind is a comfortable Saltwater-view get-away in the charming seaside village of Pocasset. Within the village is Patuisset Island, an undiscovered corner of 'Olde Cape Cod'. Enjoy being on 'Island Time', yet very close to all Cape activities.
Sun, swim and beachcomb from one of the island's sandy beaches or take a five minute stroll to a wide, white sand BEACH.
Free use of a TANDEM KAYAK for exploring the coastline or picnics on Bassett's Island.
Renovated kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, new counters and floor, serves the water view dining area.
Light and bright, freshly painted bedrooms on the second floor. Bathroom with shower also on second floor. Living room, dining area, kitchen, enclosed porch and 1/2 bath on first floor. A daybed on the enclosed front porch is a great spot for a sea-breeze inspired nap.
Fire up the gas grill for a BBQ, relax and watch the sunset.
The backyard is a birdwatchers delight with ospreys, hummingbirds and shorebirds.
Summerwind is in a lovely, peaceful, safe, seaside neighborhood where the road ends at the sea.
Enjoy 'the Cape' the old-fashioned unhurried way spring, summer and fall.
GUESTBOOK:: We had a perfect week at Summerwind. We loved the location, with a backyard view of the harbor. The area is secluded, quaint & quiet (no traffic commonly found elsewhere on cape), and our young boys (ages 6 & 5) could safely ride their bikes. We had a blast on the kayak, which we used to get across to the island where the kids found some amazing sea shells that we have never before seen on the Cape. In fact, Patuisset Island is a secret gem, very different from the usual cape experience. It almost feels like to coast of Maine with it's charming harbor. The area is perfect for a nice long walk/jog, or a lazy stroll, with it gorgeous views. It's a very short -- and picture-perfect -- walk to the beach. I could go on and on with great things to say. . . we had a great time and look forward to returning soon!
A truly lovely place, very peaceful and beautiful. Everything we hoped for and more. Looking forward to our next visit!!

Guestbook: Summerwind is a delightful home away from home. It has all the amenities you need to have a comfortable, pleasant holiday in a lovely, calm setting. Perfect for families because of its safe, tranquil location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

We loved the cottage. It definitely is in a great location. We enjoyed the harbor view and the walk around the circuit, and of course the food!!
If your looking for a nice, peaceful location this is your place.

We loved our vacation at the Summerwind cottage. It is a great location so close to the beach and is such a nice quiet area. We loved walking around the circuit in the morning and at night. The cottage has everything you need and is so comfortable you feel right at home. We have told many people about it and look forward to a return stay at Summerwind.

Weather was: FANTASTIC EVERYDAY!
Some wonderful things we did: Just being on the island and walking. Location is fantastic!
What we discovered: The ever changing tides! Seaglass on Wing's Neck (you have to search)
Little things that mattered: It was my grandson's 1st vacation. (8mos. old) and he loved it here-he is a Beach Baby!
Other thoughts: Loved the kayak. Just a lovely well-equipped cottage. Hope to be back next year. Loved the outside shower.
Summerwind is an idyllic setting for a Cape Cod vacation.Patuisett Island is scenic, peaceful and friendly.Water views abound from the cottage as well as the circuit walk.The home is charming, cozy and well appointed. We loved the nearby neighborhood beach as well as the Falmouth beaches, Old Silver and Surf Drive. The Lobster Trap and Chart Room are great local restaurants, but leave room for an ice cream dessert from the Whistle Stop! We have visited Summerwind twice and find it a perfect vacation spot. We highly recommend this property and hope to return again.
Summerwind was a perfect location for our vacation with a very active toddler. The house was located in a quiet neighborhood with several nice beaches accessible by foot and streets that were low on traffic for walking. Many of the surrounding houses only were occupied over the weekend, making it very quiet during the week. The kitchen was well stocked and made it easy to prepare meals at home for the family. We are looking forward to coming back!
Enjoyed our visit to area. And the cottage was great. We were very excited about our vacation this year and choose Cape Cod. We lived in Onset and Wareham 26 years ago. We have not been back in 19 years and we were not disappointed with the place, cottage and area. The only complaint is that we did not have longer to stay and enjoy it :) We found it hard to leave.
Things to do in area: Beaches, Kayaking(first time in the ocean for us), Onset Canal Cruise, Hyannis Ducks and Railroad Tour, birdwatching, picture taking, beautiful back yard to enjoy, and great walks around the island.

Excellent location, very comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a very quiet neighborhood with so many extras such as the kayaks, BBQ, etc. Ideally suited for families with smaller children, however, our teenagers enjoyed the nearby go-karts, mini golf and restaurants. Close enough to all tourist attractions, shopping and ameneties, but completely removed from all of the hassle and traffic - felt more like our own personal home away from home.
Our family of 5 had a super vacation at Summerwind. The cottage was very clean, comfy and charming. The sandy island beaches and beachcombing were a big hit. We poked in and out of coves with the kayak and spotted some unusual birds. Day tripped to Plymouth for a whale watch and spent a day touring Boston. Dinner at the Lobster Trap and Sundaes at Somerset Creamery-YUM! The cottage had everything we needed and more. The kitchen is nicely equipped for a beach cottage. Lots of movies, books and games. We recommend Summerwind and will definitely be back next summer.
Summerwind cottage is located in a beautiful, secluded area with small beaches nearby, ample bird life etc. However, you do need a car to visit shops, restaurants and the excellent Beach Plum bakery. For those wanting a wider and better choice of restaurants we would recommend driving to Falmouth which is about a 25' drive away and has a lovely atmosphere with boat trips etc.
The cottage does come, as previous reviewers have noted, with lots of extras. Amongst these is a kayak which was great fun. Unfortunately, the provided beach chairs and tandem bike seemed to have seen better days. We would also like to correct some of the information provided. The kitchen is only updated in the sense that there is a microwave. We were quite disappointed to find that the glasses and crockery were quite sticky and we needed to wash them before first use. Moreover, there is no bath on the second floor as indicated, but merely a very small shower which does not work very effectively. (Thank God for the outside shower which we used more often and was very enjoyable!) The 'half bath' mentioned on the first floor is really just a toilet. The porch does not provide a sea breeze as it is glassed in. We also could not get the bbq to work.
The bedrooms were very good for a family of 4, particularly the master bedroom. Overall, we felt that small investments here and there plus a more thorough cleaning would have improved the overall impression of this accommodation.
Patuisset Island is accessible by car and only 1 hour to Boston, 45 min to Prov. RI. 1 hr to Newport RI & 5 minutes to the Bourne Bridge.
5 minute walk past a cranberry bog to a Sandy Saltwater BEACH. Also enjoy sandy beaches around the island.
Biking is a pleasure without the traffic of the lower Cape. Fish from the jetty or beachcomb for sand dollars, starfish and seashells.
Launch your boat at the nearby ramp for water access to the open ocean of Buzzards Bay.
15 minute drive to the Martha's Vineyard Ferry for a day trip. Hop aboard a Whale Watch Cruise, Cape Cod Canal tour or Lobster dinner cruise.
Golf at nearby 18 hole Brookside Club.
Bike, walk or rollerblade the 7 mile Cape Cod Canal trail or the island circle.
Shining Sea Bike Trail to Wood's Hole
Kayak out to Bassett's Island for a picnic.
Crack a lobster at the famous Chart Room & Lobster Trap.The VERY BEST ICE CREAM at Somerset Creamery.
