Wareham House Rental Photos and Description

8 bdrms, 4 full baths (one w shower), big hot water outdoor shower, sleeps 10

The Bourne Cottage provides a perfect vacation spot for families and friends who want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. It has three distinct wings with 8 bedrooms.

Built in 1783, the Bourne Cottage is on eleven acres on Indian Neck at the head of Buzzard's Bay. The Indian Neck area is very private --few houses on much land.

The property is waterfront to Bourne Cove, a salt water bay with oysters, clams and fish. There is a private dock there for swimming and launching non-motorized boats. A leisurely ten-minute stroll along a narrow country lane brings one to the beach on Buzzard's Bay. Tenants have access to the private beach there.

Windsurfing, canoeing, sailing, swimming, kayaking and tennis are popular ways to spend the days. Both beaches slope gently into the water and are ideal for babies and old people alike. The water in Buzzards Bay is pleasantly warm for swimming and there is no dangerous surf or undertow.

Please note: the house has four full bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has a shower. The other three have the original claw foot tubs with shower hose attachments. There is also a large, outdoor shower with hot water.

This is a low key, get your feet wet and sandy family place.

If you want air conditioning and big screen tv, this place is not for you.

If you are afraid of a few bugs and want the beaches raked and free of seaweed, this place is not for you.

If you love natural beauty, quiet neighbors, kayaking and exploring warm waters, and a place where kids are safe riding around on bikes...you have found Heaven. This place is for you!

Gorgeous, private and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
My mom rented this antique cottage for the entire family because it was close to her brother's house in onset. It is truly beautiful and you really feel like you are stepping back in time as soon as you pull up to the house. The house dates back a few hundred years so it is full of history. It was fun trying to figure out how to get from point A to point B!! Looks are very deceiving. This house looks small from the pictures, but it actually has several staircases and "wings" of bedrooms. There is a wonderful, large screened in porch, a nice sunporch, the parlor and a dining room that fits the whole crew! The kitchen is nice and big with everything you need. There is even a separate laundry room and storage porch for all of your outdoor gear. The house is impeccably maintained with comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms. The outdoor shower is wonderful!!

The property is simply beautiful. A rolling lawn leads to the water. It is very quiet and there are thousands of birds chirping away...especially first thing in the morning. The house is at the beginning of two points with a cove in between so there are nice walking routes. "Club Mud" is a short walk from the house, It is a charming little clearing on the cove with adirondack chairs, a hammock and boat dock. We loved setting up our beach chairs on the dock and floating with the tide.

All in all, it was a house big enough for our crew but with lots of options (I didn't even get to the tennis court!!) for fun and relaxation. A perfect family reunion house!!

Great place for a large family!

  • 4 of 5
We chose this place to celebrate my inlaws 40th anniversary. We needed room for four couples, two toddlers and two teenagers. The Bourne Cottage was affordable and more than accommodated our crowd! We loved being able to eat at the large table for our meals.
The house was very clean and well equipped and Louisa went above and beyond at every step of the way to make us feel welcome and to answer questions or provide suggestions. The only issue we had was that there is in fact only one indoor shower, not 4 as the description says. But we made good use of the outdoor shower since the weather was fantastic. Had there been bad weather, we might have experienced a bit of a log jam for the shower!
We found the beach/dock not terribly conducive to small children, and opted to drive the 5 miles to Onset - gorgeous beaches, shallow, clean water, ice cream shops and pizza joints - something to please everyone!
We loved the charm of the house and the expansive grounds - no one ever worried if the kids wandered out into the yard to play. We would absolutely return!

Owner's Response: The house is indeed wonderful for large extended families. What's nice is there are several wings so it is possible to have privacy even when the house is full.

There are four indoor bathrooms: one with a shower; the rest with the original clawfoot tubs with shower hose attachments. And of course the spacious outdoor shower. (The website for some reason will not count bathrooms with only tubs, thus the source of confusion. Moving forward, I have been sure to make it clear upon the first inquiry that 3 out of the 4 bathrooms are tub only.)

Also, there are two private dock areas for swimming in the cove, and one private beach area for swimming in the bay. Two of those areas are wonderful for babies and small children as generations of family and friends will attest! The beach slopes gently into the water, and is great for babies and the elderly alike. At low tide, lovely soft sandbars are great for playing and exploring.

But, there are also many other wonderful beaches all around for every taste!

The property is only one hour by car from Boston, and before the bridges, so you reach the quiet of Indian Neck before the traffic jams to the Cape begin. The town of Wareham is five miles away. The vacation town of Onset, with active beach life, ice cream, clam shacks and restaurants, etc. is five miles in the other direction.
