COZY COTTAGE ON BIKEPATH AT FREDERICK WILLIAM HOUSE

Falmouth Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Nest Perfect For The Little Private Getaway You've Been Waiting For.

Cute! Little 2 bedroom cottage sits directly behind Frederick William house and on shining sea bike path, close to beach, pond, shops, and across the street from a great local restaurant. Vineyard goers, walking distance from the steamship authority. Never pay to park to visit the islands. Perfect location!

This adorable little cottage is nestled right behind the Main House on this lovely estate giving you maximum privacy!! Falmouth's Historic Village Green is just minutes away, as well as Highfiled Hall and Katherine Lee Bates birth home (author of America the Beautiful). Whale watch tours, dinner cruises, and fishing charters can be had right from our very own Falmouth Harbor. And if you love antiques, be sure to take in some of the local antique shops and summer events.

Festivals and different special town attractions are scheduled throughout the year, so if you are looking for a specific experience or even, just call to find out more. There is always something fun happening in Falmouth. Come see our Strawberry festival, or our Scallop festival, or take in the fall colors, or visit us during the winter holidays. There is really something for everyone all year round.

I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.

Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor purchased this cottage in 2001

Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.

If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes. Easy drives to historic points of interest, walk to breakfast across the street to enjoy the best Irish Eggs Benedict you have ever had. Location, location, location. Come visit the birthplace of 'America the Beautiful' written by Katherine Lee Bates, and visit her child hood home. Take a trolly tour, see Nobska Light House in Woods Hole, still occupied and operated by the Coast Guard Chief. Take in every season, the colors of fall, the impressive frozen ponds in winter, the yellow bursts of color in spring, and the bluest, quiet lapping waves in summer. Cook out, enjoy your family, ferry to the islands, there is so much to do and see here!

FAMILY FRIENDLY, WELL KEPT, FUNCTIONAL FUN......

  • 5 of 5
Jeanette was so kind, the property was inviting, private and very family friendly. Our first stay in Falmouth and we are very excited about returning. There was lots to see and do within reasonable distances. The bikes and bike path was a GREAT touch, the majority of our commuting was via the bikes which was so fun! Restaurants close by, farmers market every Thursday on main st ...... We took the ferry to the Vineyard ( via the bikes) road from vineyard haven to Oaks Bluff which was beautiful.....all around 10/10 stay. Great weekend, we plan to stay again, great little summer getaway....

WOW- WHAT A GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful Cottage, wonderful vacation. The Cozy Cottage on the Bikepath at the Frederick William House is everything the description entails. It is inviting and just as it's title implicates "cozy". The living room area is white, bright and airy. The kitchen and table was plenty big enough to cook a great lobster meal, seat 4 adults and two teenagers. The two bedrooms are comfortable and for those of you who need more than open windows to keep cool the window AC units work just fine. Even though there is just one bathroom it is spacious and easily accomodated our family of four and two parents. There is a mirror in one of the rooms for those of you who have teenagers that take up bathroom time getting beautiful. This is our third visit to the Cape so take it from us the location of this cottage is perfect. Hyannis, Bourne, Dennis, Barnstable, Sandwich are all within a 30 minute drive. You could walk or bike to the Ferry. Woods Hole is a lovely little town on the water less than a 10 minute drive away. If you are thinking do I stay near the water, this isn't on the water..... stay here. We have stayed on the water and you risk walking in to a musty home or waking up damp if you do not choose your rental property carefully. Jeanette is a fabulous host- she accommodated our every need which wasn't much because the cottage is well equipped and clean. Don't worry if you don't know where to go, Jeanette has maps and brochures for everything in a tray right after you walk through the front door. You will have a wonderful stay here. Don't let the two bedrooms discourage you if you have a famly of four. She has a comfortable roll away bed and a sofa that pulls out into a twin bed. For larger families the larger home just in front of the cottage is absolutely beautiful and has plenty of space to accommodate a larger family. Love, love the Cape, the weather and "wicked" friendly people. Thanks again for a wonderful visit from the Tyler famly down south!

NICE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
All the comments on the website advert for this accommodation were correct. The owner was super for us. The free bikes were great and the garden backs on to the cycle path making a safe ride to Falmouth in 5 minutes and further afield if required. We all loved the fresh water pond/parkland just five minutes walk across the road.

THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC! WOULD RENT THIS AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
This place is fantastic! Couldn't ask for a better host as a renter. She provided eveything that was needed, so the only thing you really need to bring is your clothes and food. Bike trail is right behind the property with amazing views of the ocean and other land marks along the way, we loved that! Clean park and pond right across the street making it nice for the kids to swim whenever they wanted. Owner even provides the bikes and beach equiptment plus towels and a kid wagon to accomodate your needs. Which is awesome! Downtown shops are amazing and minutes to walk or bike to if you wanted. Plaza's with Walmart, Target, Shaws, and Stop and Shop make it nice for your grocery shopping which is only a mile away. Old Silver Beach is less than 4miles along with some other great beaches. Place was clean and cozy! My kids are so excited about this place and want to come back. I would definitely rent this again in a heart beat! Our family couldn't be happier. Thanks so much for making our stay a pleasent one!

GREAT LOCATION ON BIKE PATH!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in the cozy cottage behind the main house and found it clean and very charming. Jeanette could not have been more accommodating and allowed us to bring our beloved golden retriever. The walk to Falmouth center was very manageable - a lovely place to stroll, dine and shop. Our favorite though was the scenic bike ride to Woods Hole. The rental included use of the owner's bikes (which was a nice touch)! Crabapple's right across the street from the property was a great place for breakfast as well as evening cocktail. Cape Cod Bagel, a short distance from the house was a great morning spot and our dog was even welcome on the outdoor patio! We would certainly stay here again.
