And another book we call the 'Book of Where' with suggestions for restaurants, ferries, places of worship and museums. Feel free to add brochures of places you would recommend while you are there.
Outside is a deck with wicker furniture and a gas grill, which can be accessed by a ramp or steps. A nice yard and surrounding woods give children plenty of space to run and explore. We also have an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt and sand after a day at the beach. Speaking of the beach, we also provide sand toys, beach chairs and a beach parking pass!
Our family has been vacationing on The Cape for years. We love it here and look forward to giving you the opportunity to join in the fun we've had. It's a perfect spot for summer fun, but The Cape is also beautiful in the fall, winter and spring. This home would be a perfect spot for your family vacation or a get-away weekend.
We both retired in 2011. Bill was a purchasing agent and Debbie an elementary teacher. We have 3 wonderful married children and 3 delightful grands. You'll find the house is furnished with visitors of all ages in mind.
After years of vacationing with family on the Cape, our kids convinced us it was time to buy a place of our own. Our Realtor showed us several properties, but when we pulled up to this house, we knew it was 'the one.' Once you see it and spend some time here you'll know what we mean.
Our family loves that Slimbridge Cottage is minutes from the beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound. It's also not far from the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 25 mile paved bike and walking path. We love taking visitors to Plimouth Plantation and the Mayflower which is about 45 minutes away. There are ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket right here in Hyannis or you can drive to Falmouth or Woods Hole if you want a shorter 'ocean voyage'. Fresh seafood is abundant either from the local fish market or at any of the wonderful restaurants. If live theater is your thing, the Melody Tent is about a 5 minute drive. Probably one of the most amazing things about this place is the peace and quiet. It has woods on three sides with many beautiful birds and is on a cul de sac where our grandchildren can play and explore.
Slimbridge Cottage is a traditional Saltbox style home located 1.3 miles from Craigville Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound. A beach pass to all Barnstable Beaches is included with this rental. The home is located on a quiet cul de sac surrounded by woods on three sides, yet minutes from shops, nightlife, outdoor activities, restaurants, ferries to the Islands, the JFK Museum and Kennedy Compound.
