About Paul Brower Thompson SĥǿestrìƞĝƁäyĦŏuşè[at]ǥᵯaīl·ĉoᵯ
Though I grew up in New Jersey, my family has been coming to the Cape since the early 1960's. My parents fell in love with Cotuit in the late 1970's and we have been here ever since. I spent most of my summers (80's-90's) working and living on Cape Cod. After welcoming my wife, Maria, into our family she too has come to enjoy the Cape. Our daughter, Meredith, has been a life long summer resident of the Cape since making her first trip to the Cape at age 3 weeks !
Paul Brower Thompson SĥǿestrìƞĝƁäyĦŏuşè[at]ǥᵯaīl·ĉoᵯ purchased this House in 1981
Why Paul Brower Thompson SĥǿestrìƞĝƁäyĦŏuşè[at]ǥᵯaīl·ĉoᵯ chose Cotuit
Our family originally purchased this property in 1981 after falling in love with Cotuit village and the serenity of the area. My parents were the second owners of the property. This house, built overlooking the Bay offers incredible views from all rooms. During ShoestringBayHouse's next journey, we have been slowly updating the house over the past ten years, investing in numerous upgrades from the original house.
What makes this House unique
Waterfront, pool, a great view and plenty of room so that family and friends can spread out and enjoy our home. For the adventurous members of the group, kayaks and SUP's included with the rental. We are pet friendly !
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Beautiful home and very clean. Big enough to accommodate a family and good for young children.
We enjoyed our first vacation away with our 8 month old twins. Grandparents came along to help and there was plenty of space to spread out while still feeling cozy. House extremely clean and tidy. The two kitchens were handy & bedrooms on 2 floors was nice to have. Parents had a chance to escape to pool & kayak while grandparents watched the kids!
House was great and it has a beautiful view.
The house actually feels much larger than the pictures show. There is a lot of open space on the main floor. I would highly recommend this house for renting.
Perfect place to vacation with friends and family!
Don't hesitate to reserve this wonderful home in Cotuit. We loved everything about the house and the quiet neighborhood. The open layout of dining/living/sunroom areas was great. Plenty of room to gather together for dinner/breakfast ... or separate from each other to read or compute. Our group was 7 retired adults but we could see what a great house it would be with children. Two of us enjoyed the kayaks on a beautiful September morning while others went off on a whale watch. We loved relaxing with cocktails on the upper deck and one evening a heron was fishing right on the little beach below the deck. One night we had a lobster dinner on the lower deck (near pool). Ordered cooked lobsters from Stop&Shop (much easier than cooking ourselves). Two other Cape friends joined us that night for dinner.
We all enjoyed early morning and evening walks in the surrounding neighborhood. Do stop by the charming Cotuit General Store ... they have good food for take out. Our only dinner out was at the Kettle Ho which is not far from the house. Lots of locals there - food was good. Paul, the owner, was great. He's very organized and clearly he & his family take very good care of their beautiful home. It was very comfortable and very clean! We would definitely recommend this property to family & friends!!!
Fabulous memory making Labor Day wknd
Thank you!! Our blended-extended family, friends and dogs enjoyed every fun beautiful moment at your gorgeous home! We all loved the house, pool, neighborhood and being right on the water! We also had the best weather to top it off!! 😎 Everything about this home and property added to a perfect wknd together!! Thank you for being so accommodating to our group! We were so comfortable and felt at home immediately! The only negative was leaving 😰 Highlights were kayaking to the spit, volleyball in the pool, corn hole on your front lawn and a delicious lobster boil 😎 We appreciated the way your specious and beautiful home is wired up for music, TV etc and the air conditioning kept us comfortable on the hot muggy days!! We hope to return next year!! 💞 Thank you again so much!!
A resort-like setting with a home-like feel. Very clean, spacious, comfortable accommodations for 3 generations of family. Lots of thoughtful amenities giving you no reason to get in the car! Walking, biking, hiking, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing - all accessible from a picturesque setting. The only downside was having to leave! Paul is a very accommodating, responsive property owner with genuine concern for his guests.
My husband and our toddler daughter and two sets of grandparents stayed at the Shoestring Bay house this past week and had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is incredibly well equipped for a rental (everything you could need in the kitchen, kayaks, a paddle board, phone chargers, two grills, Roku-equipped televisions, games, you name it...). We were among the first guests to enjoy the new renovations, and the home was bright, open and clean with stunning views of the bay. Sunsets here were magical. We had a great time wading in the shallow beach and watching the crabs in the sand. The beach was great for launching boats and exploring nature, but if you're looking for the more iconic Cape Cod beaches and dunes, those are a short drive away. Paul was great to deal with and very responsive on email to questions leading up to the trip and while we were at the home. This house was perfect for our family gathering and I would recommend it highly.
Waterfront, Pet friendly, Pool, Family Fun, Nature Trails, Biking, Beach Combing, Fishing, all of this awaits you in the Cotuit area. Our house is located directly on Shoestring Bay in Cotuit. We are at the North end of the Bay and the house faces in the direction of Willowbend. There is only one road in/out of the Cotuit Coves area. Cotuit is for the family that does not want to be in the center of the action. The Cotuit Coves 'neck' is surrounded by water on all three sides and the nature preserve at the entrance. We are about 25 minutes from the Bourne Bridge and Sagamore Rotary. The beaches of Shoestring Bay are covered in sand and seagrass. The shallow area of the water is sand and then it changes to sand/silt in the deeper parts of the bay. The kids will spend hours digging in the sand at our beach and looking for crabs! Don't forget we are just across the street from Crocker Neck Nature Preserve where you can hike, bike, kayak and swim.
Other Activities: Nature trails and reservation across the street.
