great location

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was perfect for our family of 4. The beach was literally across the street and we were able to not use our car for most of our trip. Walking distance to small grocery, pizza, ice cream, yoga, and several restaurants. We will definitely be back.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 4 kids just got back from a week vacation in this cottage. It was exactly as advertised. The owners live next door and are very pleasant and responsive to make sure our stay was pleasant. Extended family booked the cottage next door which was great to have us all together. Highlights of the trip were WIFI for the kids, gas grill available for the dads, outdoor table for dining, 2 bikes for cruising the town, and a beautiful quiet bay BEACH just across a quiet road and down the steps. Very fine seafood dining was had at some local restaurants within walking distance as is a small grocery, and a large grocery store is within a 5 minute drive. Having the beach steps away was awesome not to have to deal with loading cars and led to the kids having a great time as they were able to stroll to the beach when they wanted too. There is also an outdoor shower for cleaning up after the beach. This place was truly a great find and I highly recommend. Looking forward to our next trip to Onset Beach.

Beautiful spot to stay at Onset

The cottage was beautiful and clean. Had a gorgeous view of the water. The parking was surprisingly easy. We love the family and were so grateful for the opportunity to spend a lovely weekend at the Cape. Cant wait for next year!

Great location, very nice, conscientious owners. Wonderful family trip.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a great week here in the height of a HOT summer..a hop, skip & a jump to the beach (on the Bay, so we didn't have to worry about our little grandson getting beat up by rough water). The house was very nice, and the whole area is quite family oriented. Lovely view of the Bay from our patio, and the grill out back was a nice touch. Definitely a fun time for everyone.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with our 3 children and had a wonderful time! The home was very clean and neat. It had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. The owners are fantastic, friendly and so accomadating. I felt like I've known them forever!

The accessibility to the beach was perfect. There was no need to pack a car and cart all our kids to a sandy beach. We were able to just walk out the door, across the street and there we were!!! It couldn't have been easier. In fact, one morning we strolled to the beach with the kids just to sit and eat an early breakfast before we started our day.

The beach was not crowded and the shallow waters were filled with hermit crabs/clams/fish and all the things that little kids enjoy! The water was very calm and allowed us to relax, sit back and watch them explore!

This cottage in Onset is now our best kept secret!

everything you could ask for in a summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay to say the least. The cottage was spacious, clean, and cozy. Tastefully decorated too. The full kitchen, in particular the dishwasher, was very convenient. It was so nice to take 2 steps out our front door and breathe a sigh of relaxation while looking at the panoramic Onset beach views. The large, clean beach was steps from our doorstep. So easy to enjoy the beach when you are right there. I was also very impressed with the food options available just a brief stroll away. Finally, the proprietors were particularly helpful and take pride in providing their guests with memorable stays. Booking next summer already.

About Jeffrey Brooks

We are a young family who has purchased this cottage and an adjacent home for ourselves. My family has been coming to this great little vacation town of Onset since the 1960's. I have been here every summer of my life and have the most amazing memories from being here with family and friends.

Jeffrey Brooks purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jeffrey Brooks chose East Wareham

We know you will love what Onset has to offer from the amazing beach which is perfect for children to the small town. This cottage is just right for a week long summer getaway. With so much to do within walking distance, you and your group or family will make lasting memories here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Took my family here over the 4th of July. The accommodations were perfectly maintained and clean. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 children ages 12, 8, and 5. Beach is fantastic and very close. The downtown area is within walking distance, even for the kids, and exudes charm and hospitality. The only thing nicer than the accommodations, are the hosts. You will enjoy staying where the hosts are easily accessible to help, but never interfere with your vacation. Only a 5 minute ride to the Cape and easy travel on mainland, as interstate is only a few minutes away. Went whale watching out of Plymouth, saw 24 whales, and it was only about 30 minute drive. The drive to the ferry for Martha's Vineyard was about 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering travel to the area. Thanks Marilyn and Arthur(prior owners) for a wonderful experience for me and my family.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car.
