About Liz Murdock

I recently purchased this property after I stepped out on the deck and couldn't say no to the view and the relaxation that is intrinsic to this community. I currently live in South Boston and grew up outside just outside Boston so the Cape has always been familiar.

Liz Murdock purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Liz Murdock chose Buzzards Bay

I chose this cottage as a "home away from home" because of the proximity to the water and all that entails, as well as the centralized location to other great towns and adventures. The inside woodwork and craftsmanship feels a little bit like being on a boat and the simple, 'beachy' design makes it comfortable and not at all pretentious. The community, Hideaway Village, has a deep sense of belonging and welcoming - everyone is friendly and looks out for one another. It's a place that makes you never want to get back to the real world!

Amazing wedding week on the water!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely beach house with me on the most important week of my life! It was so relaxing and beautiful! We made so many memories spending time with friends and family at the cottage and loved the beach and the kayaks. Liz was super accommodating and communicative every step of the way and made this stay stress free! We can't wait to come back here and relive all of our wonderful memories. Thanks again, Liz!!!

Adorable cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was clean and minimally

tastefully decorated which is exactly what I want in in a rental. I hate

places that are cluttered with so much taste specific junk that normally

I just would hide in a closet so I don't see. Simple and lovely.

I appreciated the selections of books, magazines and dvds that were

there. The owner has good taste. The deck was a beautiful place to sit in the

morning to enjoy the view of the water. Again, clean and neat and taken

care of.

The only drawback to our stay and I hate to mention it, was the

large group next door, loud and very close and foul language impossible

to ignore, lasting late into the night. They should be more considerate of others. We spent much of the time going on day trips around the Cape, so the neighbors didn't impact us as much as expected.

Overall the cottage was a very pleasant


Liz was also very responsive to all texts and calls, making this an easy, relaxing trip. Thank you so much for the opportunity to spend a weekend with my mom!

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine, I'm so glad you had a comfortable and relaxing stay with your mom. It was a beautiful weekend to lay low and do some exploring around the Cape. I'm sorry to hear that the people next door caused some disruption. It's a lovely cottage neighborhood with an overwhelmingly positive and friendly community which it sounds like you enjoyed!

cozy comfortable with a great view

  • 4 of 5

would recommend to a couple who are agile and not over 6'2''. walls slant and you would hit your head often. Great location with friendly people who live next door. plenty to do with great restaurants near by a car is a must. liz the owner is a sweetheart. make sure you get good directions and you will have a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback and I'm glad you had a good stay! The cottage is a special place with unique characteristics that may not be the right fit for everyone but I like to think that the charm of the space - and the waterfront views - are a real asset. I hope to see you again next summer!

Cute little cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip this week in this cute little cottage with a great view. Nice breezes off the water! You need a GPS if you are not familiar with the area and roads. We would return again. Liz was great to work with regarding your rental time.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! I've added directions to the renter packet so hopefully that helps those who might get turned around. But yes, GPS is a sure bet :) I'm so happy you had a nice stay!

A Great Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from my second weekly rental. It was even better than last year. This is a quaint little cottage with fantastic views of Buttermilk Bay. The cottage is clean and very nicely furnished. Told the hubby if I win the lottery, I would offer to buy this cottage!! The new AC is a wonderful addition in case the winds die down or to drown out the one neighbor who can be a bit loud. This was the only draw back to our stay. Owner is very nice and checked in on us twice to make sure things were good. I would highly recommend this place to a couple or small family looking for a nice beach house experience. Thanks Liz. We hope to come back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad your second stay at the cottage exceeded your expectations! Part of the joy of repeat renters is getting to know the people I share the cottage with. I hope to continue to make improvements as the years go on, and I hope you'll be able plan a trip next year. Great to have you, Dianne!

This cottage is part of a welcoming community with direct access to the bay whether you want to set sail on two provided kayaks or relax in the sun on the private beach just steps from the cottage. There is a small playground and basketball net down the road as well.

Buzzards Bay is centrally located to so many exciting outdoor opportunities and activities. The businesses in town are eager to rent you a Stand Up Paddle board to take out on the bay, a bike to ride down to the Canal, or there's always Water Wizz to get the adrenaline going. If you're looking for a lower-key activity, there are many retailers in town who have the perfect antique keepsake to remind you of your time on the Cape. The weekly Bourne farmer's market, the National Marine Life Center, and a round of mini-golf are also popular ways to explore the immediate area.

There are lots of places to eat in Bourne. While seafood is the most obvious and delicious choice for this part of the world, there are also many great eateries that don't specialize in seafood (although still have it!) - Leo's for breakfast, Captain Al's for lunch, Ella's Wood Burning Oven for dinner, and Betty Ann's for a cone of soft serve.

Bourne also provides the perfect jumping-off point for exploring all the Cape has to offer. You can catch the ferry for Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket in less than 30 minutes, and reach the famous Cape Cod National Seashore in less than an hour. There are local breweries, drive-in movies, vineyards and old-timey band concerts all across the Cape. Heading west, Newport, Block Island, and Providence are all within an hour's drive. You really can do it all from Bourne!
