Two Bedrooms, One queen and the other is twin beds OR King 1 full bath, sleeps 4

Located in a street of antique homes, this charming duplex cottage welcomes vacationers with central air conditioning, two bedrooms, a reading room, full bath, fine linens and towels. The eat-in kitchen has French doors leading to a large terrace and garden. Relax in the lovely drawing room. The cottage is tastefully decorated and sparkling clean.

A short stroll from downtown Sandwich, about 1/2 mile from the Town Beach and the Boardwalk. You can walk or bicycle anywhere - grocery store, gourmet food & wine shops, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, The Sandwich Glass Museum, Heritage Gardens, the Cape Cod Canal.

Find souvenirs and special gifts in this delightful village; lovely small shops feature local artists and artisans, as well as antiques emporia, handblown glass studios, unique Cape Cod delights, handcrafted jewelery - all manner of unique offerings.

Explore Sandwich Village: Always lots to see and do in Sandwich Village. Heritage Gardens includes a whole museum complex: a replica Shaker barn houses a vintage automobile collection; an Art Museum with an authentic 1902 Merry-go-round. Visit the Sandwich Glass Museum and Hoxie House - the oldest residence in Cape Cod. Take in the Thornton Burgess Museum and meet Peter Rabbit and Friends. Walk over to Shawme Pond and the Dexter Grist Mill. Enjoy a meal at the Dan'l Webster Inn's Conservatory, or a snack in the Tavern. At The Brown Jug you will find gourmet provsions unavailable anywhere else in Cape Cod and the South Shore -a lovely outdoor patio to enjoy a glass of wine. Stroll on the bank of the Cape Cod Canal, and watch the parade of boats - all manner of sailing vessels, and wildlife to entertain you, seabirds and the occasional seal, even a whale, bluefin tuna or gigantic sunfish may pass by. Drop by Cafe Chew across from the Post Office for a treat. Relax at a cafe, tea shop or ice cream parlor.

Explore: Take a drive across the bridge and up the road a bit to Plymouth, see where the Pilgrims landed and visit Plimoth Plantation, a working reconstruction of 'America's Home Town'.

Whale Watching cruises can be had from Plymouth, Barnstable and Provincetown - awesome. Party boats take you to catch fluke and bluefish. Take a ferry boat from Wood's Hole or Hyannis to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket - enjoy the sea air.

Drive down the Cape to Chatham, Orleans, Truro, Wellfleet and Provincetown. A great outing!

Visit Boston for a day: walk the Freedom Trail, taste Faneuil Hall Marketplace, enjoy a bus or Duck Boat tour.

The New Bedford Whaling Museum is a short drive away over the Bourne Bridge toward Providence RI, and in the opposite direction, Hyannisport, Chatham, Orleans, Harwich, and on up to Provincetown.

On Cape Cod, Art Galleries, antiques and gift shops abound, as do all manner of food offerings, from clam shacks to fine dining.

Be entertained: Go to the movies, see a play, attend a concert. Live jazz, blues, classical performances - all here for your enjoyment. 'Take a Hike', nature walks, bird watching, kayaking and canoeing; horseback riding - go fly a kite on the beach. Rent a bicyle and ride the Cape Cod Canal from Cape Cod Bay to Buzzard's Bay and back again. That's some ride! Take your fishing rod and catch blues and stripers along the Canal or in the surf along the beach. Walk a few blocks to the beach and boardwalk for a swim in Cape Cod Bay. Visit one of the many musea and check out yard and estate sales - you won't run out of things to do in Sandwich and Cape Cod!

Wanna Bet? Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos are just a couple of hours away.

Nice, clean, welcoming and well located house.
It's actually bigger than we expected from the photos on the website, and the hosts were very kind.

A beautiful and charming step back in time.

This is a wonderful vacation cottage. It is very clean,spacious and well equipped for all your needs. The hosts are friendly and helpful without being intrusive to our stay. They did offer suggestions when we asked. The gardens are peaceful and a great place to lay back and relax. Beautifully decorated, it felt like home. Sandwich is a town rich in history with many sites to explore. You can do as much or as little as you wish. Stress free, a great place to unwind. We would highly recommend this for anyone visiting the Cape. 2 adults and one 12 year old had a fantastic time. Hoping to return......

good time!

I went in july 2011 with my family (2 adults + 2 kids) and it was perfect!

The house is charming and everything we need was there.

Sandwich village is quiet and perfect for people who want to enjoy a good night after a long day at the beach.

The garden and outside shower was a must with our young kids.

Lovely Place in the Village

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here on my own the last time I was in Sandwich and then my husband joined me for a night. It was perfect, quiet, clean and beautifully decorated, within walking distance of the village with cafes and shops. I also felt safe there on my own, with the owners in the other half of the building, and I could relax in the kitchen, looking into the garden, or read in the living room. I really loved it and hope to stay there again.
I don't think this is the best place for lively small children on vacation or for anyone who has problems with stairs, since the bedrooms are upstairs and there is a step down into the large bathroom. I would take kids to a beach house where they could run in and out all day. But this is a great place to stay in if you love to leave your car and walk or bike to shops and attractions. We biked to the Canal Path. You could also drive to the bike path that begins in North Falmouth and bike to Woods Hole.
The house is in the Sandwich Historical District, one street over from Jarves Street. If you want to feel like an old Cape Codder, you will love this. The house was built in the 1800's but has been beautifully restored.
The owners are very nice and helpful.

Sandwich is the oldest town in Cape Cod and a wonderful place for your vacation, ... Stroll to the Town Beach, walk or bike along the Cape Cod Canal. Watch fishing, sailing and lobster boats go by. Go kayaking, tour Heritage Gardens and Museum and the Sandwich Glass Museum. Take a little stroll 'downtown' in this charming Cape Cod village, and stop for refreshments at one of the many cafes, coffee shops or restaurants. Enjoy fine dining or a casual meal, all delightful, all sincerely accommodating. Pick up a picnic to enjoy by the canal, on the beach, or in your own lovely garden.

Drive to Plymouth, just up the road, to see where the Pilgrims landed - take a trip to New Bedford to check out the Whaling Museum. Catch a movie, enjoy a stage performance, or perhaps some music: jazz, classical, blues ... it's all close by.
