My husband and I both grew up vacationing on the Cape and wanted our children to share in the experience. Having spent many summers in Brewster and Chatham, we decided to try something new - Barnstable was just what we were looking for! The charming little village, just a short stroll away, with its fabulous market, welcoming coffee shop, restaurant and ice cream shop were all that we needed. The picturesque harbor was fun and convenient for whale watching, fishing and yummy fried clams and lobster rolls. The beach was great for cooling off and exploring during low tide, and our kids loved jumping off the bridge into the harbor during high tide with their new friends!
But perhaps the best part of all was this lovely cottage, which was beautifully laid out and appointed, from the fun welcome baskets for the kids right down to the kitchen knife that could actually slice a tomato! Eva was the best hostess we've ever experienced, sharing a plethora of knowledge about the area. She was quick to get back to us with answers to our questions and always friendly - thank you! We can't wait to go back!
