Although I am a native Long Islander, I spent all my summers vacationing on Cape Cod with my parents. I went to Endicott College in Beverly and later worked at Jordan Marsh as an associate buyer, again spending summers on the Cape. After moving to San Francisco, I would come east to vacation on the Cape. My parents moved to their dream retirement home in the 70's, so again a place to stay!! My husband got transfered to New York, and so back to Long Island and now a time to buy a cottage of my own on the Cape!!!
Barbara Hinton purchased this cottage in 1992
Having spent my childhood vacationing on Cape Cod every summer at the Bay Sands View Cottages in Dennis, (which is now Mayflower Beach) I wanted to be as close as possible to all those wonderful memories of my youth. The cottage that I selected has brought me much joy over the years and Mayflower/Bayview Beach area is still as peaceful as it was all those years ago.
To me the best part of the cottage is that it is on a rural lane, but in fact only about 500 yards to the most beautiful beach on Cape Cod Bay. There are no stairs to the beach and the sunsets are breathtaking !!!! A nice walk along a country road will end on 6A with the Dennis Market, the ice cream shop, great restaurants, village green, and all sorts of shops. The stars at night bring out all sorts of peacefulness of the heart. A dream vacation always !!!!!!!
Barbara is a wonderful hostess and we actually got to meet her as she and her sister were right next door. They recommended some wonderful restaurants in the area which we dined at.
The cottage is so close to the beach, I would recommend it to a family with small children.
There are two bathrooms and an outside shower. My husband , who is a 6 ft, 250# man, found the inside shower to be too small for him. We were thankful for the outside shower.
Had a great backyard with clothsline for hanging towels after a day at the beach. Also, a beach buggy is provided along with umbrellas and chairs.
Be aware, that when renting this cottage, you will be responsible for ALL linens, towels, face cloths, sheets, dish towels, paper towels, toilet paper, soap, etc.
(This is one of the reasons for only 3 stars. ) The cottage could use some updating, maybe new flooring and some comfortable livingroom furniture, it was hard to get comfortable on wicker furniture. I think if these things were added, the,cottage would smell cleaner and fresher.
All in all, we had a great time in Dennis.
Will definitely go again next year.
Adorable cottage. Short walk to our favorite beach on Cape Cod. Perfect for family with small children.
Very comfortable and perfect location. such an easy walk to a beautiful and scenic beach. Recommend this place highly for any families or small groups looking for a great get away.
We spent a week at the cottage, a married couple with a very young child. You can't beat the price and location for Cape Cod and beyond being within such close proximity to the beach, the location was very centrally located for exploring the Cape. The house had everything we needed except for a bathtub so we brought a blowup tub for the baby which we used in the outdoor shower. Also note that the place is small so if you do not plan on privacy between the two bedrooms. The beach was idyllic and we appreciated the caddy at the home which made the very short trip to the beach easy. The beach was especially great for the youngins... at low tide there was plenty of space for the kiddo to sit on the soft sand for the first time! The owner was wonderful and very responsive to any questions prior to our travel.
Spent our second season for 3 weeks in our favorite area! This cottage is situated in the perfect spot for beach and Cape fun! The kitchen is fully equipped and space is utilized to the max. It was immaculate and decorated so well. Being able to walk to our favorite beaches in Dennis....Mayflower and Bayview, was a plus! Can't wait to come back!
The cottage was immaculate when we arrived & getting up in the morning, having coffee on the front deck then walking the very short distance to the most beautiful beach, allowed us to have a wonderful vacation! Also a plus, was everything we needed to pick up groceries or go out for a casual or not so casual meal was in close proximity to the cottage.
Cape Cod has a special baseball league that is nationally rated. Come out and join in the fun.
