Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time at Hoxie View Cottage and we loved it! Thank you so much for letting us stay in the House That Arthur Built! I am sure we would have loved him....we certainly felt the family vibe which made our stay that much more enjoyable, We did so much during our short stay....Nauset Beach to swim in the bigger waves, Hyannis dinning and shopping, onto Falmouth & Woods Hole and the views of Martha's Vineyard and a quick stop at Nobska Lighthouse, and ended up with a walk through Sandwich, the Glass Museum, Dexter's Grist Mill, and jumping off the Boardwalk into the high tide (perfectly timed for us at 6:46pm). Thank you Dianne! We love the Cape & hope to return. If we do,we would love to stay at Hoxie View Cottage again. And celebrated Angela's 41st birthday...a big treat and thank you for the birthday cake! It was so thoughtful

A great vacation hideaway, central to the Cape.

  • 5 of 5

A quaint country cottage, quiet, clean, and tastefully furnished with everything one needs to relax. A plus is the BBQ, and an outside pit where one can share stories around a fire at night. Location is excellent and in near proximity to Sandwich Center, the Glass Musuem, a Trout farm, and the famous Cape Cod Canal bike trail. Views over the lake and walks around the cranberry bog make for an interesting location, and the Boston/Cape Cod train which looks like the Polar Express at night can be viewed from the cottage windows. The location is ideal for exploring the Cape, the beaches of Sandwich and Dennis, Hyannis, Falmouth and also doing a day trip to either Marthas Vineyard or Nantucket. The owner had taken care of everything to ensure we had a great experience, and I would certainly recommend this property to my relatives and friends.

Owner's Response: Our cottage is very special to our family because my Dad built it. When we rent it out it's great to hear the stories that renters tell us. They have as much fun as our family has all these years. In the 9 years I've rented our cottage I have never had an upset renter.

A Great Find!!!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a last minute vacation to the CAPE and stumbled on this great little Cottage. For a family of 5 it was perfect. Very cozy cottage feel and great views of the pond and hillside. Well stocked with everything you would need and impeccably clean! Fresh water pond across the street that our children loved to swim in and we enjoyed the views from the hammock and chairs on the hillside. Convenient location to the attractions on the Cape and for a day trip into Boston. If your looking for a relaxing location on the Cape, this is it. Would definitely stay here again and great hospitality from the owner as well. Thanks for sharing your family home with us.
