It's an easy drive from Turtle Cove Cottage to 11 south-side, Nantucket Sound beaches all within 4 miles like Bass River Beach, Parker's River Beach, and Seaview Beach, and 4 lovely, north-side Bay beaches, like Corporation Beach, all within 9 miles! Plus there is child-safe, sandy Long Pond Lyman Beach a few steps from the door at end of the street. The 57 acre Long Pond also offers kayaking, canoing and fishing (3-4 lb, large-mouth bass catches reported). There are 3 public golf courses all less than 3 miles. This home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood at the end of Turtle Cove Rd, yet close to all the excitement and activity on the mid-Cape, Rte 28 south side. Several fine restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies and an amusement arcade are within walking distance less than 0.5 miles. Only 5 miles from Hyannis, the Cottage is central to all of Cape Cod offering easy access to Provincetown, Wellfleet, the Cape Cod National Seashore, and Martha’s Vineyard.
