The house is located on a small, quiet peninsula on the Seapit River overlooking Waquoit Bay and includes a private dock with a 3 ft draw at low tide, although the mouth of the cove the dock sits in has only a 1.5 - 2 ft draw at low tide. A mooring is available on request with 3 - 3.5 ft clear at low tide. Edward's boat yard, at the base of the next peninsula rents a variety of boats and water craft. WBNERR, Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, offers information about the bay and its surrounds. The nearest beach is a short row or paddle across the river to Washburn's Island, an uninhabited island framing one side of the bay. Without a boat, South Cape Beach, a beautiful, expansive, white sand beach, is about a 10 minute drive.

Beautiful views from every room and kayaks to use from the dock

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and spent most of our time on the screened in porch. The view of the water was beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and lunch in the well appointed kitchen. The beds and pillows were a hit with many of us who have bad backs and are picky. On hot days, we appreciated the fans in every room. On cold days, we enjoyed the huge collection of puzzles. A few of us used the kayaks every day. They were convenient and easy to use and let us explore the area. We hope to return next year and maybe stay a little longer.

Great Time on Waquoit Bay

  • 5 of 5

We were one of 3 couples staying at your cottage; it was more like a home than a cottage. Nice and clean, wonderful place, all of the amenities you would need. Having a dock for our boats was perfect. Short boat ride to sandy beaches, warm water, fishing, and once out of the Bay it was a short trip to Oak Bluffs, nice day on The Vineyard without the hassle of the ferry. We brought our Bocce and Ladder Ball games, so the lawn area was used every afternoon. Grilling was convenient with your gas grill right there. The cottage was just as nice, if not nicer than your listing, pictures and descriptions accurate, as well as the amenities listed. We look forward to coming back next summer if you would have us.

Incredibly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband are owners of Lighthouse Cottages on Lake Winnipesaukee in NH. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of this cottage, the quaint yard, and the dock. We go to the Cape every summer for a week of salt water fun. This home was just perfect! Right on the water with quaohogs in the front yard was just what we needed. We hope to return again!

Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spot on Waquoit Bay. The home is very comfortable and clean. One of the best features is the large screened-in porch and secondly the dock that allows easy access to the bay. This is a quiet, relatively secluded location that offers privacy while being only minutes from shopping for groceries or almost anything else you might need. We spent a lot of time watching with our binoculars the osprey fledgling just across the bay on Washburn Island. Great place if you like kayaking.
