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 LOFT IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 8 YEARS of AGE. INFANTS and NON mobile children are ok. 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.

Charming Personified

  • 5 of 5
The Hummingbird Cottage is adorable, with "yummy" colors, lovely furnishings, clever
accents, and a light and airy feel. Most importantly, it is comfortable from the
overstuffed furniture and bed to the modern bath. Ashley is a most gracious host,
who made us feel welcome and was ready to meet all our needs. We also loved
the convenient location and private, attractive grounds of the cottage. We'll be back.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Hummingbird Cottage was absolutely perfect! This quaint cottage had all we needed and more. Our daughter loved the sleeping loft, the ping pong table and the swing! Ashley, Jon and their children were wonderful hosts. Will definitely be coming back (couldn't keep us away from that cute Ting if you tried). Thank you for a wonderful week.

Great mini-vacation at the Hummingbird!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the Hummingbird Cottage for a long weekend and we wanted to move in permanently! The owners are absolutely wonderful and the property is gorgeous! If you're visiting the Duxbury area, this is a MUCH better alternative to a hotel. I recommend staying here without hesitation!

Extremely special hospitality and the design of this cottage makes it the BEST in the Duxbury area!

  • 5 of 5
My two daughters and best friend traveled to Duxbury for my niece's high school graduation. The Hummingbird Cottage awaited us with 'welcome pastries' and a stocked refrigerator. We had all the amenities of home, plus more--with beautiful landscaped and wooded grounds where we all enjoyed swinging and watching the bunnys and birds.
All four of us were very comfortable in the cottage and we plan to go back in the near future. We highly recommend the Hummingbird Cottage!!!

Private Tranquil - Everything We Wanted & More!

Private Tranquil - Everything We Wanted & More!

Our 5-night stay was beyond expectations! The sunny cottage was very clean, beautifully furnished, had comfortable beds, and offered features for either a short or long stay, including onsite laundry and ample parking in this quiet neighborhood. The cottage's garden and side yard are lovely and offer privacy to relax, have tea or read a book. We were delighted with the tranquility.

We must thank the generous owners, who welcomed us with a lovely box of pastries and kindly lent us their personal GPS so that we never got lost while attending a family celebration. Ashley was always accessible and responsive to our needs.

We highly recommend the Hummingbird Cottage!

Most warm welcome in lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5
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!
