Why michael griffin chose Mashnee Island
This property is located as far as one can drive to the southern most point of the Cape Cod Canal, on the Cape side. After you go over the bridge you have a series of lefts and rights, snaking you into a hidden treasure, You want to leave with the resort type back yard. A new addition is the 4 person Hot Tub! So, stay on site or take a day trip to Marthas Vineyard, or go into Boston for a game at Fenway and see the Bosox play.
