TURTLE COVE COTTAGE~UPDATED CLASSIC NEAR LONG POND & OCEAN~$200 OFF MAY WEEKS!*

South Yarmouth Cottage Rental Photos and Description

pet-friendly 3 bdrm/1 bth cottage w/ loft--50 yds to lake beach, 1.6 mi to ocean

*Now offering a Spring Fling Special for Couples! Rent any May week for only $700 (reduced from $900).

Close to fresh and salt-water beaches, Turtle Cove Cottage offers a classic, Mid-Cape, vacation experience with contemporary comfort and appeal.

This cute, clean vacation home, located in a quiet neighborhood in historic Bass River, is just one house away from a sandy, safe, Long Pond beach (no sticker needed) and 2 miles from several of Nantucket Sounds finest beaches.

But what about those non-beach times? The kids won't be bored! Furnished for fun, extra amenities include an inflatable boat for fishing or paddling the Pond, two beach-cruiser bicycles, a swing/slide play-set, a back-yard playhouse, plus two boxes filled with toys and games for indoor play.

What is a vacation if you can't bring the family dog? Yours will be most welcome and you won’t have to pay extra. The fully enclosed back yard has a 6’ security fence to let your canine out unleashed. Families with young children also appreciate this feature.

Perhaps you love coming to the Cape but hesitate renting an older home? Turtle Cove Cottage won’t disappoint you. While the feel is “classic Cape vacation cottage”, the renovations include contemporary comforts like central air-conditioning and forced air heat.

One of the upgrades that provides a special touch of luxury and gets rave reviews from guests is a remodeled, custom bath with a multi-jetted, hydro-therapy shower and large tub.

When it comes to comfort, 'good beds' are at the top of our list. The master has a queen with an ultra-plush mattress, while the second bedroom has a low profile, double with a memory foam topper. The third bedroom for kids or 1 adult has a double futon with extra-thick mattress. (This is the bedroom that our grand-daughters always choose!)

Guests arrive to find the beds already made up with quality, 100% cotton sheets. The summer décor includes cool, crisp seersucker bedspreads; in winter down comforters with colorful duvets make the beds cozy and inviting.

While the roomy kitchen with vintage, solid, wood cupboards is traditional Cape Cod, the appliances and cookware are new and modern and go far beyond the basics to satisfy the cooks among you.

Prefer cooking and eating outside? You can grill dinner on the deck on one of two Webers provided—propane gas or charcoal--while you watch the children frolic and play in the back yard. It's nice to have choices!

The shaded, wood deck with round, umbrella-table and comfortable chairs is also a good place to laze away an afternoon. And if you get carried away and stay out until dusk, you can light a fire in the back yard fire-pit to cozy up and roast marshmallows for smore's.

When you tire of the outdoors, the cheerful, open living room with vaulted ceiling and skylights awaits you. Watch a special program on the flat-screen HDTV or one that you recorded on the DVR when you were busy doing other things. Listen to your favorite music on the BRD/DVD/CD player. Curl up with a good book in one of the cozy chairs in the well-lit reading corners in either of the two main bedrooms.

Tweens and teens have their own space in the loft above the living room to hang out or sleep (two, twin trundle beds provided.) Parents tell us that their kids even watch TV from their loft perch.

Why choose Turtle Cove Cottage? Guests get special treatment including a courtesy call to welcome them the morning after they arrive and a comprehensive binder of information to help them plan their stay. It's the attention to detail to make sure our guests needs are met that makes this rental stand out.

If you come in summer, you will find a bottle of chilled, gift wine from a local winery waiting for you. Off-season travelers receive all the complimentary fire wood they will need, plus the use of a Keurig mini with a packet of K-cups.

Turtle Cove Cottage is available for year-round, short-term rental, and many find fall, winter, and spring are the most restful and beautiful seasons on the Cape.

Are you ready for a fun and memorable Cape Cod experience? Give yourself an unforgettable vacation or get-away by booking Turtle Cove Cottage today. (Please see our personal website for information about the Cottage and the area at: http://cape-cod-cottage.com)

We are Judith and Doug Saum, a recently retired couple whose primary home is in Reno, NV. We love living in the mountains of the West, but wanted to have a place to have a place to stay when we visit our son and family who live year-round in nearby Dennis on the Cape.

Judith Saum purchased this cottage in 2010

The classic Cape feel with updated comfort, the playful personality--all too much to resist! Not only is it a great vacation home for us, our grand-kids love coming over to spend the night at 'turtle house', as they call it.

Location, location, location! The quiet area with friendly neighbors. The proximity to Long Pond for taking a quick swim. The short drive to area beaches. The easy walk to restaurants and grocery store. The central location makes it easy to get anywhere on Cape Cod. Need we say more?

Best New Years Yet!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
My boyfriend and dog came up for a short little visit over New Years '13-'14. It was hands down the best New Years we have had yet! Judith and Doug's little cottage is so cozy and convenient, it felt like a home away from home. I was able to walk Minny (my dog) every morning around the gorgeous lake that the cottage is only yards from. We would walk to street that circled the entire lake since it had a sidewalk and it provided great exercise. It was nice to have a place that we could feel safe going for walks and with the added bonus of a gorgeous view! We also liked that the backyard was gated and we felt secure in the fact that Minny could not get lose! The cottage was well equipped for anything we needed. We used their little fire place almost every night. We also noticed all the amenities they provided for the summer months! We will be coming back this summer and will look forward to enjoying some of these! Judith was very nice and accommodating always making sure everything was perfect for us. Thank you for a great New Years and we can't wait until the summer! :)
Owner's Response: Thanks for the glowing review, Katy! We look forward to having you back.

Great Vacation at TurtleCove Cottage.

This was my family's first vacation at Cape Cod and Turtlecove Cottage was the perfect home for our stay. The cottage was very cozy and felt very much like your own home. The neighborhood where the cottage is located is what I loved the most. It's very convient to all of the stores and located right off of the main route. My dog enjoyed Long Pond Lake from the boat dock. We would walk him every day in the neighborhood right along with the other neighbors that were out taking their walk. I enjoyed hearing the children on the street laughing and playing while my dog Tyson barked right along with their dog while they played. The fenced in yard was also great to have so that Tyson could enjoy his vacation not having to be leashed all of the time. The peacefulness and quietness was also welcomed and there's plenty of that. We can't wait to plan our next trip to Turtlecove Cottage!

Place very central to town beach(which was lovely)...everything accurate in description---clean and well maintained. Owners were exceptional with communication and being concerned with every need....kitchen was more than adequate....would certainly recommend to family or friends...all the binders with info about restaurants and places to go was extraordinary...never had a place that gave renters so much helpful info....little beach at Long Pond was so ideal for little kids....

Wonderful!!

We just returned from two weeks at Turtle Cove Cottage and it was wonderful! Judith was a pleasure to work with (prompt, courteous, and very helpful) and the cottage itself is delightful. A true Cape Cod experience!

The cottage is conveniently located, yet quiet, and the layout is so well done (clean, efficient, charming). The fenced yard was a definite plus for our kids and dog. The very short walk to the pond beach was another big plus, as was the raft.

We have stayed in many homes/cottages on the Cape and can honestly say this one has it all figured out and is geared toward guest enjoyment. We highly recommend Turtle Cove Cottage!
Owner's Response: We so appreciate the positive feedback. Thanks for taking time to post your comments.

Perfect Little Cottage

  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We had a wonderful stay in this cozy cottage. Judith has thought of everything. The beds were so comfortable. We loved exploring the Cape, but we also enjoyed our time right at the cottage. The backyard was great, and we ate most of our meals on the deck. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dogs. Our children loved the beach at the end of the road where they caught so any fish. We are definitely considering a return trip next year!
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the outstanding review. You are always welcome to come back.
