Overview

Cape Cod Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom Nest Perfect For The Little Private Getaway You've Been Waiting For.

Cute! Little 2 bedroom cottage sits directly behind Frederick William house and on shining sea bike way, close to beach, pond, shops, and across the street from a great local restaurant. Vineyard goers, walking distance from the steamship authority. Never pay to park to visit the islands. Perfect location!

This adorable little cottage is nestled right behind the Main House on this lovely estate giving you maximum privacy!! Falmouth's Historic Village Green is just minutes away, as well as Highfiled Hall and Katherine Lee Bates birth home (author of America the Beautiful). Whale watch tours, dinner cruises, and fishing charters can be had right from our very own Falmouth Harbor. And if you love antiques, be sure to take in some of the local antique shops and summer events.

Festivals and different special town attractions are scheduled throughout the year, so if you are looking for a specific experience or even, just call to find out more. There is always something fun happening in Falmouth. Come see our Strawberry festival, or our Scallop festival, or take in the fall colors, or visit us during the winter holidays. There is really something for everyone all year round.

About Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor

I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.

Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor chose Cape Cod

Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.

What makes this cottage unique

If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes. Easy drives to historic points of interest, walk to breakfast across the street to enjoy the best Irish Eggs Benedict you have ever had. Location, location, location. Come visit the birthplace of 'America the Beautiful' written by Katherine Lee Bates, and visit her child hood home. Take a trolly tour, see Nobska Light House in Woods Hole, still occupied and operated by the Coast Guard Chief. Take in every season, the colors of fall, the impressive frozen ponds in winter, the yellow bursts of color in spring, and the bluest, quiet lapping waves in summer. Cook out, enjoy your family, ferry to the islands, there is so much to do and see here!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect! Plenty of room for 4 of us, walking distance from restaurants, the bike path takes you straight into town and the beach, and the gift shop on site has anything you need! Jeanette was lovely, she has thought of everything! We made a fire in the fire pit and made s'mores. This was a dreamy stop on our vacation and we hated to leave!

Everything you expect and more!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to have our family of 5 summer vacation in Boston and Cape Cod this year and we were not let down at all! After reviewing several rentals we chose this property and we are so glad we did! The way it is described and from the pictures shown - you get exactly what you see and more! This cottage was perfect for the 5 of us and in the perfect location. The cottage had everything you would need and the space, coziness and ambiance both inside and out is what i would expect a Cape Cod rental to be. It has a great playground across the street and literally behind the backyard is access to the Shining Sea Bikeway which we took advantage of with the free bike rentals. It was less than a 10 minute drive to the beach (several to chose from) and also to Main Street, which had plenty of cute boutiques and ice cream shops. Jeanette the owner is very professional and called as soon as i booked (4 months before), asking if i had any questions, answered emails (2 weeks before) and then she was there when we checked in and showed us around and made us feel at home. We will definitely be back!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first visit to Cape Cod, and we loved it! The cottage was very comfortable and accommodating. We loved that the cottage sits directly on the bike trail. We took bikes everywhere! The location of the cottage is perfect! We rode bikes to the lighthouse, the village, the beach and the ferry. The bedding is very comfortable, and the cottage provided plenty of space for our family of five. We would definitely stay again!
