SE Massachusetts & Buzzard's Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cape Cod, Cottage, Water views, Ocean Swimming, Beach Vacation


Welcome to the Cozy Quahog. This 1950's cottage has undergone considerable updating without changing the vintage coastal home aesthetic. From the cedar-shingled exterior and spacious deck offering ocean views, to the driftwood colored flooring and beach styling this is a quintessential island home. Additional features of this home charming built-in cabinets, knotty pine walls, updated kitchen with new cabinets and granite counter-tops. A larger master bedroom features antique furniture and two large closets. A smaller guest room features two twin-style trundle beds and a large closet. The bathroom has a shower stall and plenty of storage. A full-sized front loading washer and dryer complete the appliance package. For the more high-tech traveler, a flat-screen television, cable TV and WiFi internet access are all there. Outdoor furnishings and a propane BBQ grill are available for outdoor dining and relaxation. A large wooded lot offers privacy, yet easy access by foot to over 5 beaches on West Island.

A little information about the area:

West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).

Originally farmland, the past two centuries have seen West Island gradually change to a vacation destination for locals who know what a gem they have so close to home. It is not uncommon to meet others during your stay who have been vacationing here for decades or who's family has owned the same home for nearly a century.

While maintaining its charm, West Island has also kept pace with technology. City Water and Sewer, high-speed internet, satellite television are just some of the amenities you will find while on our island.

Within 4 miles you will find two large supermarket chains, department stores as well as other well-known chain establishments. West Island is a mere 60 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from Newport and under half an hour from the Bourne or Sagamore bridges.

Great location on West Island. Cottage is perfect if you are looking for a week away at the beach.

Coffee on the deck

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage, totally comfortable for two adults and one small child. Nicely shaded with oak trees and a view of the water. We sat on the deck with our coffee every morning enjoying the bay. Cottage was very clean and well maintained. Wifi and cable a big plus. Certainly would stay here again.

Such a cute house

  • 5 of 5

We decided to book a vacation on short notice and were very pleasantly surprised. The house is small, but worked perfectly for my husband, I and our dogs. The island is so cute, clean and everyone is so nice. We spent a lot of time walking around the island and in particular the reservation. I would definitely recommend!

Cute clean place

  • 5 of 5

A very cute very clean little house. About a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Very quiet. A bit crowded for 4 adults (2 couples), but would be amazing for a couple alone.
