Why Owner chose South Yarmouth
I grew up here during the summer. It was idyllic! The River is so close by--just across the street. I would cross the street and spend my days at the small, free, beaches accessible from the street.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a traditional, Cape Cod cottage with the requisite sand driveway and Cape Cod lawn. But, updated with central air, wifi, decorated with Ralph Lauren and Waverly wall coverings. A true Cape Cod experience!

Charming Quaint Cottage!
What a sweet getaway spot - darling Cape cottage in a historic neighborhood, close to everything. Comfy beds, delightful patio with relaxing hammock, too! Quiet at night, near the bay, abundant restaurants nearby & a hop, skip and a jump from the beach!
Caring landlord gives wonderful insight to area & activities. Enjoyed our time here immensely! :)
Kitchen well equipped
Air conditioning excellent
It was pleasant on pleasant street
It was nice. Property owner very nice , property like listed in listing is old school/ dated cottage , no bells and whistles , Worked great for our stay.
Thank you, Paul, for taking the time to review the cottage. You and your family were a joy to have! Although the cottage is a traditional Cape Cod cottage, I hope you found the central air conditioning welcome in the heat and humidity that the Cape experiences in the summer! I hope you come again!
This cottage worked well for our week stay in Cape Cod. Centrally located on a very nice quiet Street in Yarmouth,. Right across street from Bass riverso good for kayacking etc. Owner lives on property in separate apart.ent and was so friendly and helpful.. historic saltbox style cottage,
Large well equipped kitchen, outside eating area, 1 1/2 baths. I liked hanging out in the cozy upstairs reading , but be aware the stairs are streep so not good for small children or elderly or disabled. Cottage was comfortable but outside could use a bit of spiffing up (paint,
yard, screens etc) however this did not affect the comfort or concenience of our stay.
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to write me your lovely review!
The cottage is an authentic Cape Cod half-house dating to 1820. As you know, there is wide-planked flooring throughout with the steep stairs going to the second floor. I recall that it was very hot and humid during your visit. I hope the central air-conditioning made your stay more comfortable.
All the windows have Harvey custom made storm/screen windows that are under 10 years old and in very good repair. It was unfortunate that the screen in the patio screen door had been ripped right before your visit and I was unable to repair it. My apologies.....
The garden surrounding the cottage is a traditional Cape Cod lawn unlike the rest of the neighborhood which have manicured lawns and sprinkler systems. The neighborhood used to contain smaller cottages like mine with Cape Cod lawns, but times change and the traditional Cape Cod cottage is hard to find these days. I like to tend to the guest's garden before tending to the garden surrounding my quarters, and you are right, it could use a little bit more attention. And sometimes the weather doesn't always cooperate. Ditto with the painting project of the trim on the patio which needed attention.
I hope you have a wonderful year ahead and hope to have you again! You were wonderful guests!
"Pleasant Street" memories.
As the name of the street anticipates, this is a cozy traditional cottage where we had a great time last July.
It consists of two floors arranged exactly as described on the website and being just two people, for us the cottage was really comfortable, it was like having a hotel suite each. There are wooden floors almost everywhere, which gives the house an old-times atmosphere together with the good taste furnishings.There are all modern comforts though, including air-conditioning, necessary on hot summer days and nights!
Everything was very clean and tidy, with little homely touches like the flip-flop magnetic notepad on the 60’s fridge. Outside there’s a little patio hidden from the main street (with table/chairs/BBQ) where we used to have breakfast, great to relax and have a drink or dinner in the evening.
The neighbourhood is really beautiful and quiet, very green, with birds and squirrels, and lots of big cottages with nice lawns and huge hydrangea bushes! The location is perfect because it’s in the middle of the Cape, so everything is at a short distance, but certainly you need a car. However,there are things you can do just walking or riding a bicycle: across the street there’s the river, with boats, kayaks, etc. and some tiny beaches. Otherwise there’s Smugglers’ beach, which you can reach on foot, where you can sunbathe,swim,fish or have a walk at sunset before dining at a nearby restaurant, tasting the local seafood (delicious littlenecks, steamers and lobster!) In the garage of the cottage you can find everything you need for the beach and bicycles.
Any downsides? Well, the only one I find is that the garden would need some “re-styling”, also because the ones nearby look extremely trim and tidy, but this doesn’t really affect your stay in the cottage.
We drove around a lot and Barbara, the owner, also gave us some good tips about restaurants nearby , for shopping in the area and things to do, like going to a tag sale just down the road, which was great fun for us as it was a taste of local traditions. Barbara was really very helpful and friendly, always available without being obtrusive. The owner living next door is certainly a positive aspect in case of need, but besides that she’s such a nice lady that it was a pleasure to meet her .So, we hope to go back one day to repeat the experience and make the most of Pleasant Steet again! Thank you Barbara!
Great time on the Cape!
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The location was great to explore any place on the Cape. It was so peaceful and quiet. We slept great. The cottage was clean and the bed linens fresh. We enjoyed eating our meals out on the patio. Everything that you would need was supplied. The AC was especially nice. The owner was very personable.
Deep sea fishing, fly fishing, pubs, whale watching, boat cruises, island excursions, power boat rentals, nature trails, Cape Cod Cultural Center...all nearby!
