Description

Welcome to COMPASS ROSE COTTAGE - The Quintessential Cape Cod Cottage

Ideally located on a quiet street steps away from Flax Pond, and just over 2 miles to Mayflower Beach, plus convenient to all that Dennis and the Cape have to offer. Decorated with local art and pottery, along with antique pieces discovered in the area, this charming cottage is the perfect Cape Cod getaway.

A great traditional knotty pine cottage with inviting living areas highlighted with vaulted wood beamed ceilings, it is appointed with a fully equipped retro kitchen with breakfast bar seating and skylight.

The inviting living room space is bright and airy, and has a sleeper sofa with full size bed. There is a dining table for 4, and an additional sitting area to relax in.

The two cozy bedrooms are also tongue and groove pine panelled; one with a full bed, the other with a twin bed. The comfy nook in the sunroom, with antique daybed equipped with custom mattress and box spring, is a wonderful spot to curl up with a good book, or to sleep the night away.

The cottage has one full bath with stall shower, a 32 Inch Hi Def TV , Cable, High Speed WIFI, gas BBQ grill, wood shed with beach supplies, and outdoor deck with dining area where you can sit back and enjoy.

There is a window air conditioner and tower room fans if needed, and a wonderful cross-breeze that usually comes through the many windows of the cottage.

A private outdoor shower with hot and cold water and separate changing area provides the perfect experience after a day at the beach.

The nearby beaches are perfect for young and old alike. Splash around in the bay beaches at high tide or explore the miles of tidal pools at low tide.

You can also choose to walk around the corner to secluded Flax Pond (cottage has deeded beach rights), which provides a nice alternative to sunny days at the ocean. You’ll love being able to kayak, canoe, sail a sunfish, swim, or float the day away, in the shady calm warm water Flax Pond provides. Take a relaxing walk through the miles of nature trails that surround Flax Pond, and discover the second small sandy beach on the other side of the pond.

Dennis offers 16 beaches including Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, and numerous freshwater ponds. There are 2 championship golf courses, and a charming village with many quaint shops, restaurants, ice cream parlor, library, The Cape Playhouse, Cape Cinema, art galleries, and museums, all located a few minutes away on historic Route 6A.

And let's not forget Captain Frosty's, one of Cape Cod's best seafood shacks, just a short walk outside the neighborhood, for some delicious fried seafood and chowder, or for a sweet ice cream treat!

We feel you’ll agree that Compass Rose Cottage is the perfect place to create your wonderful Cape Cod memories.

Compass Rose Cottage

What a charming, warm, inviting stay we had in your cottage. We were pleased to find all the amenities you listed and so much more. Short walk to beautiful pond and lovely minutes drive to lovely, sandy, and warm ocean beaches! Very restful and relaxing, and it just couldn't be better!

It was a pleasure to have Paul and his guest stay at the Compass Rose Cottage. We were thrilled to hear how much they enjoyed their time at the cottage, and exploring the neighborhood and the Cape. They were great guests and we would love to have them back in the future.

Compass Rose is a Cape Cod gem!

The Compass Rose Cottage takes one back to a simpler time on Old Cape Cod. Having been to the Cape on numerous vacations including stays during my childhood, I've found that it's changed a bit over the years and not always for the best. Many beautiful little Cape cottages have been torn down and replaced by large year round homes that don't fit in with the seaside surroundings.

That's definitely not the case with the Compass Rose! It's simply furnished, yet comfortable. It's basic, but has everything you need. It's small, but it's big on charm! From the moment I pulled up out front under the pines and saw the beautifully crafted Compass Rose sign and the brass whale on the cheerful blue door, I felt at home. Once inside the cozy cottage, I was happy to find it decorated with a subtle beach theme. There were lovely prints and carved pieces on the walls, polished pine floors, and bright bedding and pillows. My favorite spot to curl up was the daybed in the sunroom. I also enjoyed spending time on the deck, whether planning the day over morning coffee or winding down at the end of the day. The best feature of the cottage has to be the outdoor shower! If you've never experienced a moonlit shower on a warm Cape night, your vacation is not complete!

The neighborhood was very quiet and relatively traffic free, great for walking around the block to Flax Pond or strolling down the street to Captain Frosty's for some delicious chowder and fried clams! Dennis is a great area with many beautiful beaches and easy access to all the Cape has to offer. The hosts were very pleasant and helpful. Thank you for sharing your special Cape cottage!

It was a pleasure to have the West group stay at the Compass Rose Cottage. Communication was great and the whole rental process went very smoothly. They took such good care of the cottage and seemed to really enjoy everything that was available to them there. We were thrilled to hear how much they appreciated the Old Cape Cod charm of the cottage and that they were very comfortably with the conveniences we had added. We were also glad they were able to take advantage of the central location and all Dennis and the neighborhood had to offer. We look forward to having them stay at the cottage in the future.show moreshow less

Quaint and charming cottage in a quiet neighborhood

I so enjoyed my quiet respite at Compass Rose. It was the ideal location to start my retirement. It is the perfect cottage for a getaway, whether that be for a small family, by yourself or a few friends. The cottage was fully equipped and carefully attended to by the landlords, who were extremely accommodating and wanted you to feel right at home.

Located in an adorable, private neighborhood close to a pond with full access to swimming, kayaking and great trails with easy access to the bike trail on nearby on Setucket Road -- the wide sidewalks make for easy riding to other trails. It is very close to the village of Dennis with its great beaches and many interesting shops ready to be explored. The Cape Playhouse and Cape Cod Museum of Art, just a couple miles away, provide some of best culture the Cape has to offer. I would return in a heartbeat!

We had the pleasure of having Sandra stay at the Compass Rose Cottage for two weeks, and couldn't have been happier with how smoothly things went. We had great communication before, during, and after her stay, and she took care of the cottage like it was her own. We were thrilled to hear how comfortable she was there, and that she was able to take advantage of all the cottage, the area, and the Cape had to offer. We would welcome her back as a guest at the cottage any time!

Charming and peaceful

We had a wonderful two-week stay in the Compass Rose Cottage with our 10 and 13 year-old boys. Carol and Gene put a lot of thought and care into creating a vacation experience that is relaxing, hassle-free and charming. Highlights of the cottage for us are the outdoor shower, cathedral ceilings, and sunroom. We also enjoyed our walks around the pond and on the nature trails. We found everything to be as described and presented in the photos, but it was even more peaceful than we had imagined.

We have enjoyed many years vacationing on Cape Cod and had always dreamed of one day owning our own place there. We are thrilled to be the proud owners of this wonderful cottage. We have spent considerable time improving the cottage and adding our own touches, with local art and pottery, and some antique pieces found on Cape Cod, along with the addition of a fabulous new outdoor shower. We were able to keep the feel of a traditional Cape Cod getaway, but didn't forget the modern conveniences. We rent the Compass Rose Cottage to guests and enjoy it ourselves. We hope you enjoy our home and The Cape as much as we do.
