Description

Description

Available for MLK weekend! Set on a quiet, northside lane off Route 6A that ends at the Great Marsh with a view of Sandy Neck, the home is surrounded by trees and birdsong, nestled in our family compound - but on its own street. You have complete privacy and caring owners who, having traveled a lot, have filled this home with amenities we sometimes wished we had available on our trips.

Our rural setting is quiet, yet very close to world-class shopping, dining, spas and outdoor recreation including biking and hiking trails, salt and fresh water beaches. It is also conducive to productive remote work with strong WIFI even from the backyard.

We have a large king bedroom, a full bedroom, one bath, a fully-equipped galley kitchen, and dining /family room. People tell us the photos do not do it justice! Winter amenities include an operating wood stove, oil heat, and amazing views that emerge after the leaves fall. We have many decorating touches representing an authentic Cape Cod home, collected over years.

Bed linens and towels are included. Two beach chairs and 4 beach towels are also ready to hit the sand (winter gulf streams keep the Cape warmer than the rest of New England). The bathroom has a walk-in shower, hair dryer, full sized washer (brand new!) and full sized dryer with detergent & washing amenities. The large bedroom has a brand new king bed, closet and dresser for unpacking, and a table/chairs for home-office workspace needs with a USB charger port. The second bedroom has a full-sized bed, closet and dresser. The kitchen includes a microwave, toaster oven, slow cooker, tea kettle, tea pot and tea, Keurig coffee maker with Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts k-cups, a blender and plenty of pots and pans. Come summer, we will have a gas grille and grille tools available, too. Right now a charcoal grille is available.

Strong WIFI and a flat screen TV is available for your Roku or Firestick (no cable TV). Our library is curated with local Cape authors and some classics.(Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick married a local West Barnstable woman!) We have a great stash of brochures and magazines on local events, places to see and things to do. The book nook has games and puzzles and kids books .

Our home is within walking distance of various walking trails (maps provided.) A 9-minute drive west takes you to Sandy Neck Beach, a magnificent 7-mile barrier beach that reveals long swaths of tidal flats and offering a bathhouse, restrooms, a great snack bar (in summer), and the Kindness Rock Project. Fresh water fun and a new dog park is at nearby Hathaway's Pond, in Barnstable village. All Town of Barnstable beaches have surf chairs and all public beaches are handicapped accessible.

A 9-minute drive to the east is Barnstable village where you will find coffee shops, an organic vegetable farm stand, the local village grocery store, great dining, interesting shops for antiques, pottery and clothing. The Hyannis Whale Watcher boat is also anchored in the Barnstable Harbor and we recommend this soul-enriching trip to see the whales. (Our whales start migrating north in April after spending the winter in the Caribbean Sea, and then return there in the fall after feeding all summer.... they are amazingly active when migrating in spring and fall).

A 15-minute drive to the west are the Cape Cod Canal bikeways, and the famous Sandwich boardwalk. Downtown Hyannis is 15 minutes to the south where the JFK Hyannis Museum and Main Street shops, artist shanties, great restaurants, sightseeing boats, and island ferries are located. We are less than a mile from the Route 6 onramp and the National Seashore and Provincetown can be quickly accessed.

In winter, the Cape takes on a serenity that is unparalleled. Many shops, restaurants, spas, and cultural activities are open, but the winter quiet can restore a soul in just a few hours. We can help you find your special experience, or just let you relax in total peace and comfort.

Just Perfect!

This cottage was absolutely perfect, and exactly what I was looking for. As a travel nurse, it can be hard to find comfortable housing for a short three-month stint. However, Wendy and Van were more than accommodating in making their cottage feel like home to me.

Every possible kitchen utensil or cooking staple was thought of and stocked in the cabinets. The space is airy and bright, the wood-stove cozy, and it is located on the quietest of dead-end streets. Being in such close proximity to Sandy Neck Beach made daily walks on the beach my most prized ritual while on Cape Cod.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable, and cozy retreat.

So cute!

Wendy saved our vacation! We had our expected rental cancel literally hours before our arrival due to an unavoidable issue. We travel with our fur baby so our options are limited. In a panic in the middle of the night I came across a cute cottage that met our needs. I emailed Wendy who responded to me promptly on the morning. After hearing our issue she was able to arrange for us to rent the week!

Pleasantly surprised at how lovely this cottage is. Open and bright with beautiful wood floors. Large and spacious, the pictures don't do it justice. Very clean, which is the most important thing to me. The yard and small covered patio are perfect for relaxing after a full day of activities. Definitely would recommend staying in this gem. show more show less

Excellent choice

My husband and I had the chance to escape to the Cape for a weekend, but had to find a place that accepted pets. Wendy's home was the perfect spot for us and our dog. Her home had everything you could possibly need. The kitchen had every gadget you might require. There were food staples available, coffee, sugar, spices. Her beautiful home was so comfortable and inviting, we wish we could have stayed longer. And our dog was so happy to have a yard to play in, rather than being stuck in a cramped hotel room. You will not be disappointed with this rental. We will definitely come back! show more show less

Lovely cottage

We lucked out with this cottage. Wendy and her husband are great hosts and they are very accommodating. They are quick to respond and helpful. The place is clean and well decorated. We were surprised to find two bottles of wine and beer waiting for us. They thought of everything, even down to a frosted mug in the freezer for the beer and beach toys for the kids. We felt like we were at a second home and we intend to come back !

Great stay at Sandy Nook cottage

My wife and I stayed at the Sandy Nook cottage for a week. We enjoyed its quiet location, away from the busy main road but close to all the conveniences offered by West Barnstable and to both the Marshes and the Cape Cod beaches.

The cottage is very tastefully furnished, bright and cozy, and impeccably clean. The kitchen is small but well-equipped, it has all the essentials and more. We appreciated that the hosts had left for us a garnished pantry, beers in the refrigerator, and a bottle of red wine, which made us feel almost as we were staying at our own place.

We greatly recommend this cottage and are looking forward to our next stay at Sandy Nook!

Amazing Sandy Nook

My husband and I were blown away by this amazing find on Cape Cod. The house was perfect - anything and everything we could have needed for our stay.

The beds were very comfortable and all the rooms were beautifully appointed. A delightful home in a quiet oasis of New England charm. We even got to spend a day at the beautiful Sandy Neck beach just minutes away!

We are Van and Wendy Northcross and we are long-time Cape Codders and live in the same West Barnstable neighborhood, ready to meet your needs, answer your questions, and give you complete privacy. Wendy recently retired as the Cape Chamber CEO and is now executive director of a local cultural institution. Van is retired from the Cape's very fine healthcare system. Let us know if there is an amenity that you desire but don't see listed.

What is special about this property?
A classic Cape home that grew from a small cottage into a sweet design with a very large bedroom that can double as a home office. The home has a wood burning stove, which is operable in late fall and winter. A very private piece of property, it is perfect for a romantic retreat. We provide the bed linens, bath towels, beach towels and the kitchen pantry has coffee, tea, and some provisions for your use.

What is special about your town?
This property is located on the northside of the coveted Route 6A also known as the Old King's Highway (OKH) historic district in the town of Barnstable. OKH was just named a National Scenic By Way earlier n 2021. The house is steps away from the Great Marsh, with hundreds of types of birds including osprey and bald eagles! Night views of the stars are magnificent, with very low ambient light. A short drive to the Sandy Neck beach on Cape Cod Bay for salt water swimming or tidal pool wading. The calm fresh water at Wequaquet Lake is great for kayakers and canoers, as well as beginner swimmers. The town of Barnstable has every service and amenity you could want from world-class healthcare to great local food and shopping experiences. An ''accessible for all abilities'' playground and the ''trail of tears'' mountain bike trail are located in West Barnstable.
