About the property

2 Bedrooms, Full Bath, Sleeps 4-5 Upstairs unit

SUMMER MIDWEEK SPECIAL: Sunday - Friday for $1200*

Just a pebble's throw (about 100 feet) to the private beach, the Carriage House of Onset Village is situated on beautiful Onset Bay. The Carriage House is just a short walk over the stone bridge to the village with shops, restaurants, the Onset Pier and a summer full of events. There is a lovely view of Onset Bay!

The second floor unit has a contemporary, open layout with the feel of a modern cottage. The kitchen and living room are open with a sectional in the living area. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and another with a double bed and trundle bed underneath. The kitchen is outfitted with all the necessities, including dishwasher. There is a full bath with tub and towels are provided. A stackable washer/dryer is located in unit.

Linens are provided along with beach towels, beach chairs, wireless internet and cable TV with DVD player. There is an outside shower to keep the beach out where you'll want it and a gas grill for those slow summer evenings.

While we welcome children, with respect to our downstairs guests, the upstairs is not a good fit if you have younger children who are active. With that in mind, we ask there is no running in the unit.

*check in for midweek special is 5 PM

Enjoyable stay in this clean & pleasant cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Spent an enjoyable week in this cottage. It is very clean with expected amenities. Sitting out on the porch with a view of the bay was lovely during sunset.

Nice quiet location within walking distance to beaches and the little town.

  • 4 of 5

20-30 minute easy drive to Falmouth and Hyannis . We took the local canal cruise at sunset which was lovely with great narrative . The town of onset itself is very small but gives you a nice local feel . Not touristy .. which is what we wanted . Check in and out was a breeze . No TV's or A/C in the 2 bedrooms but we happen to catch cool nights in August . Our upstairs unit was perfect for my husband and myself .

Beautiful house with superb balcony and gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the upper floor of this beautiful house for 4 nights as part of our Silver Wedding Anniversary trip and wish we'd had longer. The house is really nicely decorated with lovely little touches everywhere making it feel like a real 'home from home'. It has 2 lovely double bedrooms and our bed was extremely comfortable. As there were just the two of us, we used the 2nd bedroom as our dressing room, so there was plenty space. The large balcony is a fantastic place to sit and have breakfast or just take in the stunning views. It was also great to have use of the outside barbecue and garden area too. This house is in a really peaceful location, just a few steps away from a stretch of private beach, and a short stroll to a super waterside restaurant and bar, and the small, pretty town of Onset. It is well located to drive to other places in Cape Cod, or to Rhode Island, but we would quite happily have spent all our time right where we were. Thank you to Jude for allowing us to share her 'little piece of heaven' for a few days, and to Cathy for looking after us when we were there. We hope to be back!

Quiet getaway in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Cape Cod before. We just loved this area. It is a very small town and has a small town feel of being away from the busy life which is just what we love.

The home was just the right size for us with three children. The private beach next to it was great and the kids loved finding shells in the morning. Would stay again.

We just returned from an amazing weekend at the carriage house. We cannot say enough about how lovely the apartment was. Spacious, clean and well appointed,it had everything we needed. The location is wonderful. The pictures of the deck do not do it justice. The views were amazing and it was so nice to sit out there with a cup of coffee in the morning and for dinner at night. The location is perfect, away from it all but you can walk to town and getting to activities on the Cape was easy.

Jude was so welcoming, we would return again.

Onset is a historic Victorian waterfront community located on the shores of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts and is a little known seaside gem. Most of the storefronts and cottages are still in place with their original charm of the 1800s Victorian era, when the village was established as a self-sufficient resort community.

Located just a pinch off of Cape Cod, you'll avoid the traffic but still have all the amenities and beautiful scenery that the Cape has to offer- it's the ideal location! Onset is known for its quaint Victorian homes, sandy beaches and all the charm of New England. You'll find kayaking, Canal tours, fishing, biking, golf and lots of fun events throughout the summer located within walking distance.

The Buzzards Bay area hosts a wide range of activities to make your vacation complete. Whether it's a day trip to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, kayaking, visiting the numerous lighthouses, fishing, golf, local music festivals, biking, boat tours, or a night out on the town, you'll have more than you can do in one visit!
