Summer Home Away from Home
Submitted: August 14, 2011
Stayed: June 2011
My husband and I and our 3 children have been going to this cottage for 2 weeks in early summer for the past 16 years, along with my parents and a rotating list of my siblings. It really feels like our summer home. This comfortable, clean, well kept cottage easily sleeps 8 and has plenty of room so that on rainy "inside days" you are not tripping over each other. Having 2 baths AND an outside, private shower(my favorite) makes cleaning up after a day on the beach a breeze. While there are several restaurants within easy driving, and a few walking, distance we tend to stay "home", the kitchen is stocked for any type of cooking, there is a gas grill as well as a charcoal one and lets face it the views are spectacular. Sitting on the deck, a glass of wine, the smell of dinner on the grill and the moonlight coming up over the water... why would you go out? Our kids were 4,6,8 when we started and days were full of beach going, bike riding, kite flying and our yearly whale watching trip. Now they are 20, 22 and 24 and days are still full with golfing, kayaking, wind-surfing, biking on the very close Cape Cod bike trail, hiking on nearby Monomoy Wildlife Refuge and yes our yearly trip to P -Town to see the whales and window shop. Though they can no longer stay the whole 2 weeks they will not miss being there for at least part of it, as one of them said "it wouldn't be summer without going to "our cottage"
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the owner Steve, he always stops by to make sure everything is OK, if I even mention that the gas for the grill is low or the washer and dryer in the basement needs detergent it is replaced that day or by the latest the next. He really cares that you have a great, stress free time. Over the course of 16 years he has made several upgrades, AC, new kitchen, new furniture,big screen HD TV's and so it has become a tradition that on our drive there we try to guess what new surprise Steve may have in store for us this year and 2011 was no exception. New deck furniture for the second deck so you feel you are up in a captains chair looking out at the ocean... the new favorite morning coffee spot.
Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.
