Availability this summer! Beautiful salt-water-front cottage on Waquoit Bay in Mashpee, MA on Cape Cod. Located on Seconsett Island, a charming 'old Cape Cod' peninsula surrounded on 3 sides by salt water. The cottage has panoramic sunset views and looks out across Waquoit Bay at Martha's Vineyard and Washburn Island, an uninhabited wildlife preserve. Great spot for shellfish, birding, boating, walking, swimming, and quiet relaxation. Small private beach in front of the house on shallow gentle bay waterfront is perfect for kids.
The two-story Cape Cod style house has: 4 bedrooms (3 rooms sleep 2 people each in 1 queen-bed and 2 double-size pullout couches) and the 4th bedroom is very large with 4 twin beds -- perfect for kids or a family. Living room also has a queen-size futon. Two baths (1 with shower, 1 with tub) plus an enclosed outdoor shower (hot water) with a view of the bay. Large living room, dining room, completely equipped kitchen, and boat mooring.
