Description

Description

Conveniently located, on a quiet, lane off Route 6A , you have complete privacy and a lovely home curated by caring owners who work to meet your every need. The home is air conditioned in a rural setting with a big lawn, shade trees, picnic table, Adirondack chairs, and a sunrise-facing covered porch. This perfect vacation getaway is close to world-class beaches (salt & fresh), shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation including protected bike trails and wooded or marsh-side hiking trails. Pets are considered, please inquire.

This home sleeps two in a very large king-bedroom and two more in a queen-bedroom. A fully-equipped galley kitchen with all the gear and supplies is next to a dining area, and a large bathroom with a shower (grab bars at shower & toilet) with full sized washer/dryer. The living/family room has windows on three sides which leads to the porch. People tell us the photos do not do justice to our home filled with interesting regional touches. We take pride in super clean spaces and lovely, spacious rooms.

Included are 100% cotton bed linens and bath towels. We provide beach chairs, large beach towels, sand toys, a full sized cooler and smaller lunch coolers. We provide a beach sticker for parking at Town of Barnstable public beaches including Sandy Neck.

We stock the bath with TP, soaps, shampoos & conditioners, hair dryer, and the washer and dryer with laundry supplies. The kitchen offers 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, and paper goods. We always include a few fun things in the pantry for our guests. If you need the kitchen stocked before arrival, please let us know in advance so we may assist!

Outside is a relaxing shaded porch ready for morning coffee, quiet reading, or watching the turkeys roam.

Strong WIFI and smart TV supports your Roku or Firestick (no cable TV). We do have an HDMI cable. Our library is curated with local Cape authors, some classics, kids books and a good selection of games and puzzles.

We have maps for trails within walking distance or a very short drive away. 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 (good for dinner, too!) 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 local shops with local art and pottery. The Hyannis Whale Watcher boat is anchored in nearby Barnstable Harbor and we recommend this soul-enriching experience.

In a 15-minute drive to the west are found Cape Cod Canal bikeways, canal-side restaurants and clam bars, and the historic town of Sandwich with several museums including Heritage Museums and Gardens with their Hidden Hollow made just for kids. Downtown Hyannis is 15 minutes to the south where several museums are located within walking distance of each other: Cape Cod Maritime Museum, Mass. Air & Space Museum, The Zion Union Heritage Museum and the JFK Hyannis Museum. These are all located amongst Main Street shops, artist shanties, and great restaurants. Steps away from Main Street are sightseeing boats, fishing charters and island ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. We are less than a mile from the Route 6 on-ramp at exit 68 and the National Seashore, points east, and towns such as Provincetown are quickly accessed from our central location for super fun day trips.

We can help you find your special experience, or meet some special need with advance notice.

    Sun-drenched Classic Cape Getaway

    We came to the Cape for the weekend to visit family and had a lovely stay in Van and Wendy's beautiful home! When we arrived there were snacks out as well as a personal note and ample information giving us everything we needed for navigating our way around the area. The bed was very comfortable and we had everything we could possibly need at our fingertips for a lovely and comfortable weekend. This location is just around the corner from Sandy Neck, and is right off one of the most scenic highways in America. Van and Wendy are thoughtful and attentive hosts offering a classic and cozy Cape visit experience - we will definitely be back soon!!! show more show less

    Great place!

    This immaculate home was a fantastic stepping off place for anywhere on the cape! Rooms are huge, all necessary items are provided and it's dog-friendly. We enjoyed daily walks at Sandy Neck beach and Barnstable Village is charming. The local general store has anything you might need including great take out pizza. We'd love to return again!

    Honeymoon

    We spent our honeymoon on Cape Cod! What a wonderful trip….the cottage exceeded our expectations. Wendy thought of everything!!!! The cottage was so well-stocked and homey!! The washer and dryer were a huge plus because we didn't have to check baggage at the airport. It was a fantastic location.

    Stunning Sandy Nook Cottage vacation!

    We feel so lucky to have experienced Sandy Nook Cottage for a glorious week on Cape Cod. From the moment we arrived we were thrilled with the beautiful and inviting space Wendy and her husband have created in their lovely rental property. The cottage was spotless with everything needed from towels to a well appointed kitchen. The cottage is nestled among trees and peaceful. We were able to bring our beloved dog which made our trip fantastic. There is state of the art air conditioning that keeps all the rooms at a comfortable temperature. The beaches are a very short distance away and there is a beach pass provided! Even though we've visited the Cape many times the bay and ocean beaches were incredible! We couldn't stop saying "Wow". We've been sharing our photos and recommending this gorgeous gem to family and friends. show more show less

    A Hidden Gem in West Barnstable

    The Sandy Nook Cottage is a hidden gem tucked a few miles away from the main tourist attractions and traffic. We were most impressed by how inviting it was - beautifully decorated with comfortable beds, clean, and fully stocked with anything we needed. The owners even left all the little things you often forget like qtips, a med kit, and cleaning supplies. They supplied linens, towels, and toiletries -- and all kitchen items were there and available, including a Keurig. They shared their beach chairs and a beach pass to the local beaches, which we definitely took advantage of. In their welcome booklet it had everything we needed to know about the cottage, along with contact info, and they included some of their favorite places.

    Our favorite was Sandy Neck Beach -- walking the trails in the sand dunes to and from the quiet beach. Our family absolutely loved it. Just like the cottage, it was a hidden gem. For families with dogs, this was perfect. The owners allowed us to bring our dog, and dogs are welcome to walk the trails and to visit a section of the beach, which is rare during the summer months.

    Outside the cottage was a picnic table and some comfortable Adirondack chairs to relax in before starting or ending the day.

    I must add the home owners were easy to communicate with and quick to respond. I would recommend this place to anyone - and will definitely be back.

    Peace and Relaxation

    Our time at the cottage was amazing! Such a beautiful spot and Wendy & Van thought of everything.
    We loved the large bedroom... And sitting outside for morning coffee.
    It was honestly the best vacation we have had because we found this place and it suited us to a tea! And the turkeys came back almost daily.
    Thank you both!

    Quiet, Clean, Perfect!

    This was the first time we traveled to Cape Cod. We wanted a quiet place to sleep at night. This cottage was perfect located on a dead end road! Wendy & Van are exceptional hosts who have thought of everything! They were very helpful in giving advice on places to eat. We like to eat where the "locals" eat when we go to a new destination. Very quick to respond to our questions via text and email. This cottage is exceptionally clean and we felt very comfortable calling it "home" for the duration of time we were there. This cottage is quiet, quaint, clean and comfortable with all the amenities you can think of! Nicely decorated with a New England personal touch. Other than your clothes, there is nothing else you need to pack! show more show less

    We are Van and Wendy Northcross, long-time Cape Codders, and we live in the same West Barnstable neighborhood. We are ready to meet your needs, answer your questions, and give you complete privacy. Wendy is executive director of a local cultural institution. Van is retired from the Cape's regional healthcare system and has published his first murder mystery! We love to read, travel, and putter around the house. 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 and a smaller bedroom featuring a queen sized bed. 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, beach parking pass, 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 also named a National Scenic By Way in 2021. The house is steps away from the Great Marsh, with hundreds of bird species 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 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.
