SWEET HISTORIC COTTAGE, GLIMPSES OF BASS RIVER, CENTRAL A/C, BEACH SO NEAR!!

Bass River Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The cottage is just across the street from Bass River - about a mile from the mouth of the River and Nantucket Sound. Several types of beaches, i.e., river beaches, Nantucket Sound beaches, are walkable and bikeable from cottage. Private garden.

This adorable, central air-conditioned, authentic Cape Cod cottage is situated in a lovely residential neighborhood that is listed on the National Registry of Historic Districts. An 1820 Cape cottage with wide planked pine flooring and hand-hewn timbers, but with all the modern conveniences.

Perfectly placed for exploring Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Boston and Southeast New England -- all in easy reach.

The luxury of central air conditioning has recently been installed together with central heating. It has also been recently re-decorated.

Bass River is the largest, all salt tidal river on the East Coast. There are several free public River beaches along Bass River a short stroll from the cottage or approx. 1 mile (1.6 km) to Nantucket Sound's ocean beaches.

The lovely views along the river are perfect for a leisurely daily walk or bike. There is a small neighborhood bakery (less than a mile) nestled nearby for fresh breakfast yummies, coffee, the paper and other bakery items.

The river is wonderful for kayaking and kayak rentals are very close by. There are several places to put in should you have your own.

The cottage features three bedrooms with closets and bureaus. Upper floor: one double bedroom and one single bedroom plus half-bath. Lower floor: one double bedroom; full bath with bathtub/shower; comfortable living room with digital cable color TV; DVD player w/ DVD library; CD player w/ iPod docking; WiFi; assorted books/games; large eat-in kitchen with refrigerator, electric cooktop; convection/microwave oven, toaster, kettle, all kitchen china/utensils, etc.

The kitchen opens onto a private brick patio complete with umbrellaed patio seating for four with gas barbeque overlooking the garden. A traditional Cape Cod lawn with hammock completes the quintessential Cape Cod experience.

Bed linens (all 100% cotton) provided. Please bring your own bath/beach towels.

Two large food markets and pharmacy are less than one mile from the cottage.

Items available on request are: four bicycles, beach chairs, beach umbrella, large cooler.

Less than one hour to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Hyannis and the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are a 20-minute drive from the cottage and Boston proper a 1-1/2 hour drive.

Ideal for small family or two couples. Maximum of four.

This is a non-smoking property both inside and out. I am sorry, but we cannot accommodate pets. Unsuitable for children under 12.

We enjoyed our time at the Cape in this charming cottage, it was a chapter out of my childhood, when I visited the Cape with my family. We had two teenagers with us, they enjoyed the bikes and close proximity to the beach. My husband and I loved the patio and hammock. Bedrooms are small but cozy!We did alot of touring but did rent a boat from the boatyard across the street and jetskis in West Dennis!Loved the ease of watching the firewooks in Hyannis, easy in and out! Thanks!!

We had a wonderful time in your cottage and your hospitality and servicemindedness enhaced the experience a lot. We borrowed bicycles from you, you bought an umbrella and a brand new big barbecue that we used most evenings. The cottage had a very good and central location on the Cape and made is easy to discover all different places and beaches, it was not to far to drive anywhere. Good grocery stores close by. The beds were very comfortable and the layout of the house worked very well for us, two adults and two teenagers. Our kids appreciated the TV and the Internet. We could have needed a washingmachine but you solved our problem without a blinc. The cottage was very clean, maybe a little bit smaller than we expected but it worked very well for four people. The only thing to complain about was the mosquitos at night, but on the other hand it was nice to be located next to a small forest - it is difficult to get it all! Quiet surroundings, close to the river and close to a nice beach that you can bike to and avoid the parkingfees. We found this cottage to be good value for money. Thank you for having us and Cape Cod was a really nice experience!

Hi from the Swedish family.

Owner's Response: Helena & Pal:

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Your time in writing a review is very much appreciated!

I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. In response to your concern over mosquitos at night, a mosquito control system has been installed so guests will be able to enjoy the Cape Cod evening air on the patio!

Hope to see you this year!

This was our first visit to Cape Cod and it won't be our last. The property was clean and comfortable and was exactly as desribed on the VRBO web site. Conveniently located to all of the major Cape Cod attractions this rental was a real find. The owner was very helpful, providing excellent tips for dining, shopping, and recreation. The property is well maintained and because its an original Cape Cod cottage you get a real sense of the architectural history of the Cape. Looking forward to a return visit.
