We had a wonderful time at this clean and cozy cottage. Mary and Gary are the kindest hosts and very child-friendly. They invited us to the neighbourhood party (great fun for our boys) and showed us around their oyster farm, which is on the most beautiful beach in the area. The cottage location is perfect to explore different beaches (about 10 min drive) and parts of the Cape, while a private beach on Follins Pond is just across the street for lazy days. The cottage comes with a big grill, beach equipment, a washer & dryer and a dishwasher. Definitely worth a stay!

Lovely cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. The cottage was really wonderful. Everything you need is there. It was very clean and well maintained. The cottage was as pictured on the site. The location was perfect for us to discover Cape Cod. Very nicely located. We did trips all over the Cape starting from the cottage. The owner, Mary was easy to deal with. She was even so sweet to send over the clothes of our daughter that we were forgotten in the cottage after leaving. We would not hesitate to come back.

Thanks Mary for letting us rent your beautiful cottage.

Love It!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage and this location! For years we have stayed right next door to this lovely cottage, but this year that place was no longer for rent. Who thought our vacation could get even better, but it did. This cottage very clean, comfortable and has everything you need and more. There was plenty of space for our party of 5. The kitchen modern ad has a dishwasher! There is also a washer and dry, which is a big plus. We loved grilling and eating on the deck while looking out over Follins Pond. There is a lot to do right at the cottage. It is on a safe & quiet dead street. Your kids can bike around with no worries. Right across the street you have access to a private beach on Follins Pond. You can swim, jump on the water trampoline, kayak and watch beautiful sunsets. The cottage is also close to many of our favorite things in Dennis - Mayflower Beach, Flax Pond, Smugglers Ice Cream, Scituate Harbor Café, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail. To top it off, Mary is a wonderful host and makes for sure you have everything you need. We miss it so much we are going back Labor Day weekend!!

Love this cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time renting this cottage and we wouldn't consider renting anywhere else. The cottage is very clean, well decorated and comes with all of the amenities you need. There is more than enough room for our family of four. It is a quiet neighborhood and very safe for kids - the roads have speed bumps. Our two young boys love the water trampoline in the bay across the street. Can't wait to come back next year.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Cape Cod and it couldn't have been more perfect! The owners were extremely helpful and gave great advice as to where to find great beaches, where to find yummy eats and what not to miss.

The cottage was perfect. We were traveling with our teenage children and they each had their own really cute bedroom. We also loved the outdoor shower! We never want to shower indoors again.

Outstanding cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our vacation on the Cape and we miss it already!! Much of the reason we had such a wonderful time is this cottage. We're a family of four and it was perfect for us! It's clean and has been recently updated throughout the entire house. We loved having a kitchen with newer appliances and the outdoor shower made for a fun, unique Cape experience. Also, being able to walk across the street and go to a saltwater pond was great--the water is warm and you can swim out and use a water trampoline--lots of fun! Ideal for kayaking as well. Another super feature of this cottage is the location. You're literally 5-6 minutes from Route 6 and being in the mid-Cape region, you have easy access to every area, including beaches. Last, but certainly not least, having Mary and Gary (the owners) right across the street was fabulous. They greeted us when we arrived, helped us with the house a few times, and even came to our aid when we had car trouble. They're friendly and do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. Trust us, we did a ton of research before booking this cottage--if you have a small family/group, you will not be disappointed--we're already talking about going back!
