Grand Cove is a Cape Cod Treasure! It is an amazing fishing spot. When the birds come flyin' in..the fish just start jumping! Sit back and enjoy the views of Bass River. This is a no wake zone. Very quiet. Mussels in the sea grass or fresh fish for dinner? Sail, kayak, and swim! Sit back and enjoy the sunset over the water every night from the patio. Light up the Weber grill for an evening fire or BBQ. The gas fireplace in the living room will keep you warm on a chilly Spring or Fall evening. The location of this rental is set in the heart of all that Cape Cod has to offer yet it is quiet and secluded. This is a Cape Cod treasure. A kayak rental (with delivery) of a kayak can make your vacation complete. Walk to the Breakfast Room for Breakfast or Lunch. We hope you will love it here as much as we do!
The Bass River Marina is just a few minutes away if you would like to rent a boat/boat slip for your week.
Grand Cove is a No Wake Zone. Photos of the waterfront are taken from the back door.
Grand Cove is ocean fed salt water. This cove is located on Bass River. Bass River connects to the Nantucket Sound. The water is the temperature of the ocean or a bit warmer and the fishing is bountiful. There is a boat ramp located on Great Wastern Road in Dennis. The ramp is about 8 minutes from the cottage and parking is free. Beaches: Chapin Beach/Mayflower Beach on the Bay side off Rt. 6a is so beautiful at sunset. Pack a picnic dinner. During the day, bring the kids at low tide...the beach goes out for miles with an abundance of tide pools. West Dennis Beach is just 2 miles from the cottage. It has just enough waves. Coastguard Beach: A 40 minute drive, big waves and nature. Seagull Beach in Yarmouth is calm and warm. Only 10 minutes away. Chapin Beach and Mayflower Beach are best experienced w a low tide that leaves a beach of about 3 miles out and tide pools for toddlers to play in.
Resturants everywhere and shopping. Be sure to catch a whale watch. Cape Cod is a whales destination to feed before they make the trip down the east coast for the winter. Call or email us to reserve your family vacation at Tom Thumb Cottage.
This location is so rich in nature.
Sunsets, sea life, beach, central location and great owners that will help you if you need anything during your stay.
My husband & I own 2 B&B's & as our 1st cottage experience we were delighted to find it clean, comfortable & private. It was perfect! We enjoyed the peaceful view, the outside shower and anything you might have forgotten to bring was thoughtfully tucked away in the cottage. We highly recommend this destination to all & hope too be back next year ourselves.
We love The Tom Thumb!!! We have stayed in these cottages for years and would highly recommend them! The owners were wonderful and were there if we needed anything! They created a great atmosphere, and the cottage was clean. We arrived alittle early, but they were VERY accommodating! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who asked. We were made to feel at home! It was great to be back at Grand Cove, great to be back "home"! Deb King
The most terrifying, dirty place on Earth. This cabin was dirty inside out, manager was very unprofessional. She destroyed our vacation. Stay away from it! We should know it was a dump by the way the cabin was kept. The other surrounded cabins have been recently renovated ( nice landscape, windows, floors, furniture, electronics, and so clean inside out). This cabin was filthy dirty, exterior peeling paint, rotted wood, horrible landscaping, cigarettes buts left in the so called "grill". We found dog hair in refrigerator, human hair in the " clean unpressed sheets", food crumbs in the sofa...what
a nightmare! And to make our vacation over the top, my dog got flees just for spending a night there.
My wife and I decided to vacation locally(in Mass) so we could take our dog Jazzie. The cottage was perfect choice. Right on the water was perfect for relaxing. The owner and daughter actually was able to come and dog sit while we enjoyed a day at the beach.
Ahhh the sunsets. We would recommend this cottage to others,
We stayed at the cottage and would highly recommend it. The sunsets were beautiful and it is a nice spot to relax in. The owners were very accomodating and helpful with any questions we had about the area. We came here to unwind and that's exactly what we did! It really is in a nice central location to explore the cape yet also out of the way.
This adorable cottage was the perfect size for our family of four (and our two dogs). The kids absolutely loved going out the slider and down the steps to the dock to catch hermit crabs and small fish in their nets. The cove is very peaceful and lovely and beautiful beaches are a short drive away. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with every dish, glass and pan that you would need. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for some great family time in a cozy location.
