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!
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.
