Description

Description

Our peaceful waterfront cottage is a classic Cape Cod retreat with many unique design features, such as a hand-made tile mural from local artist Sara Holl, custom built arched doorways, brick fireplace designed by the owner, vaulted pine ceilings, granite counter tops, and cheerful colors.

The cottage is on a private road.

The master bedroom (king bed) looks out over a natural lawn, red cedars and the pond. (We do not use chemicals of any kind on the property). It also connects with the back brick patio via a sliding door.

The bedroom off of the kitchen also has a pond view (two twins). The sunny front bedroom (two twins) is street-side but quiet.

There is a screened in porch for dining - and for storing sandy beach items. The porch includes a picnic table that seats six.

The pond is pristine and a nice place for swimming. The pond is restricted to 10hp crafts, and tends to have only kayak and canoe traffic. Depending on the time of year you might see blue herons, swans, Canada geese, osprey, mallards and other lovely birds. The few people who fish on the pond go for fresh water bass. You can enter the pond at the edge of the backyard. The photo with the rowboat was taken in August - when the Joe Pye weed is high.

In Sept and Oct enjoy a cozy fire while looking out at spectacular sunsets over the pond. Some guests come down for weekend getaways - this a great time of year; less traffic, more leafy color.

This property has character, is perfectly situated, and might appeal to an artist who is seeking a healing retreat, golfers who appreciate that both fine-dining and local beers on tap are nearby, and beach-going families and friends. Bring your kayaks for a fresh water tour, or go .2 miles down to our private association beach or the nearby public beaches and spread out your towels and umbrellas.

Near Nickerson State Park - for fall hiking and biking in the woods -also near the lovely marsh walk at the Museum of Natural History.

Paddle-boarding tours are newly available(supfari.com)- safari leaders take entire families through a beautiful maze of ponds.

There are also local shops for kayak and bike rentals.

And sailing lessons are available at Upper Mill Pond.

Our cottage - and the general area of North Brewster- has been described to us by many visitors as the perfect place to be on Cape Cod. Thank you for visiting.

Best of Both Worlds

The cottage is a great deal, and we will be back again. My wife and I can be fussy when it comes to rentals at the Cape, but we were both impressed by the comfort and location of the house. It was filled with all the accoutrements you could need for a relaxing vacation, and the owners were very attentive and personable. Our young kids loved all the activities the location had to offer, whether it was riding bikes on the back roads, taking a dip or boat ride on the pond, or walking to the beach. The General Store down the road made for fun morning walks to grab a muffin and coffee. With the pond literally in the back yard, sunsets and tranquil water views were easy to come by and added an additional element of enjoyment. It felt like wherever you turned, the cottage had something fun to offer. We look forward to returning. show more show less

Beautiful Home Perfect for a Getaway

My family of 5 just spent a wonderful week at this home. The house is situated in a private community that is only a 3 minute walk to the beach (in which we had the beach to ourselves nearly every day) plus a 5 minute walk to the Brewster General Store. The house itself was perfect for a family with 3 small children. The one-story living was great and the master bedroom was really spectacular. We have rented a lot of houses on the Cape, and this has been the nicest.

What was really great was that this house was very well stocked. Everything you could possibly need especially in the kitchen – down to spices, plastic wrap, garbage bags, paper towels, tissues, etc – the owner really thought of everything. The back patio was where we spent most of our time. We ate all our meals out there and the views are amazing. There was an older row boat that our 7 year old daughter loved to go out on every day. The living room was a bit small, but as long as the weather is nice, there is plenty of space outdoors.

Would highly recommend this home and plan on returning next year.

The Dunbar family has been renting out our family cottage for five years now (2016). The house was built by my grandfather in 1960, and my dad bought it in the early 1970s. It has been fully renovated, and my dad made a lot of creative and interesting changes. We used to come down in the summer and spend our time at the beach, or on the screen porch playing cards, or in the pond behind the house. It was our favorite place to be.

What is special about this property?
The cottage has interesting architecture inside, while maintaining a low key classic shingled cottage appearance on the outside. There are many artistic features such as several vintage stained glass installations, and tile art from local artists in more than one room. It is also colorful and cheerful. Every year we do add something, last year we re-modeled the entire master bathroom, kept the full sized cast iron enamel bath and added handmade tiles to the wall. We also added an outside shower enclosure which will easily fit several small children with an adult. The backyard is level, and reaches the pond - and is a good place for children to play all sorts of games. We love it because it has charm, while also being a practical vacation home. And you can walk to the beach, or swim in the pond. It is a good place to make memories.

What is special about your town?
Brewster is an old sea captain's town and the downtown area close to us has interesting historic buildings and has kept its charm.

You can walk to the Brewster store from our house and get the morning paper and a donut, or come back later in the day for ice cream at the Brewster Scoop.

The town has interesting things to do for adults and children - you can rent paddle-boards and go for a guided tour on upper mill pond, or take your kayaks out on our pond or to the local state park.

There are several golf courses, good antiquing, fried clam shacks and fine dining. We also have a great new coffee shop at The Herb Shop and for yoga enthusiasts you can get a week pass for Brewster Bikram Yoga, or drive to Dennis to Yoga Cape Cod for more variety.

We recommend the Brewster Fish House for fine dining and Chillingsworth for a bistro style menu. If you want to sit outside for lunch you can try Al Fresco for a lobster roll or a sandwich - and then visit the Kitchen Shop which has great gadgets. For kids there's Kate's Ice Cream, and Joe's Clam Shack, and Cobies for burgers.

In 2015 the town added sidewalks - you can now safely walk to the Brewster Coffee Shop for breakfast, or enjoy a morning walk in that direction past old homes and interesting plantings.
