CHARMING CAPE COD COTTAGE ON BEAUTIFUL GROUNDS

Duxbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom cottage

Completed in spring of 2013, hummingbird cottage is a charming cottage built for comfort. The ground floor has an open plan room with vaulted ceiling and beautiful venetian glass chandelier. The dining room area has a table that will comfortably seat six adults. The living area has a tv and comfortable slipcovered couch and two arm chairs. There are four large windows to maximise the natural light and provide wonderful cross breezes in the summer. The back door leads out to a patio with cushioned chairs and table for Al Fresco dining and two adirondack s for relaxing. There is an outdoor shower behind the house for showers after your days at the beach. Upstairs there is a loft style bedroom, quaintly tucked into the eaves,that has two twin beds that can also be pushed together to make a king size bed. The kitchen has a small fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker so you can enjoy light meals at home. A grill is also available to use. The marble walk in shower and marble floor bathroom is located next to the master bedroom which has a queen size bed.

Situated in Duxbury, a quiet town at the beginning of cape cod, close to everything but off the beaten track. This historic town has so much to offer, from oysters and lobsters to fresh baked french pastries. The six mile beach is just a few miles away from the cottage and here you can spend a day reaxing on the outer beach, home to endangered plovers and in the winter months, snowy owls.Just 35 miles from Boston you can see all the sites of the city easily in a day trip. There is a commuter train that takes you right to the city from the next town, Kingston. The ski resorts are just two hours drive and many can be reached in a day trip. Vermont and New Hampshire are also within a short drive and Rhode island too. The cottage is a perfect point from which to explore or to relax and enjoy all the local activities. The historic town of Plymouth, where the pilgrims landed is just a few miles away and a trip to Plymouth plantation or a whale watch off Provincetown are fun to do. We will do anything we can to make your stay wonderful and great. There is so much to see that one trip just wont be enough!

We have lived here since the year before our son was born in 2001. We have always dreamed of building a guest cottage and have visitors from all over the world to enjoy our beautiful town. My husband grew up here and I am originally from England.

Ashley MacCallum purchased this cottage in 2000

This is our dream cottage that we designed after years of renting homes all over the world. We designed a clean, comfortable space with a private patio and garden with all the modern conveniences.

This home is bright, decorated with beautiful furniture and decorated tastefully. The grounds have beautiful plantings with many birds and rabbits, chipmunks and occasionally turkeys and deer can be seen.

Most warm welcome in lovely cottage

We had a wonderful stay in Hummingbird cottage. The cottage is well equipped with good beds, lovely living room and great outdoor kitchen. Everything is need, tidy and clean. Towels are washed every day and bed lining as often as you ask for it.
The best part of the cottage, however, is its owners, who made it a very special place. Their warmth and welcome made our stay wonderful; we felt at ease straight away. They are very helpful in any possible way. They showed us unexpected, gorgeous areas where one can only come with the knowledge of locals. They arranged discounts for museums. They even insisted on doing our laundry!

Owner's Response: We thoroughly enjoyed having your family stay in our cottage, so glad you enjoyed your time with us and we hope you return again one day. Thank you for your kind review and all the best to you all.

What a beautiful cottage! My two sisters and I had the pleasure of staying in this newly built cottage which is located close to the ocean and not far from Cape Cod. The furnishings were beautiful and of fine quality. The owner, Ashley, was great to work with too. Anytime I had a question, I would email her and she would always respond quickly. My sisters and I would like to stay there again sometime in the future and stay even longer!

Cozy, clean and bright cottage! A very well-planned design! We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return in the future! We like the bonus of having a basement with a ping pong table to play! A very private cottage, with a personable hostess, Ashley, who was very helpful with area attractions and directions for sightseeing! Time went too fast and was definitely too short! Thank you Ashley!

Hummingbird cottage was a cozy, yet mondern and sophisticated. The interior design was impeccable. It was very convenient to have the grill outside, and it was nice and new and clean. The beds were clean and comfortable (in the dual AC units were a godsend on 95° day) And the surprise ping-pong table in the basement kepts us entertained for hours. Great rental. Would repeat.
