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.
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......
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.
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.
