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, stained glass windows, 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.

Master bedroom has AC.

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. There is also an indoors living room table that can be opened to accommodate 6 guests.

The back brick patio adjacent to the living room, (looking to the pond) has an outdoor table with umbrella for six guests and there is a nearby outdoor wall plug for laptops etc..

The pond is pristine and a nice place for swimming. The pond is restricted to 10 hp crafts, and tends to have only kayak and canoe traffic. Water quality is monitored by the town; and is listed on the town website, we have been rating at ''Very Good''. 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, excellent walking and fine-dining.

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 of the pond (backyard entrance) or go .2 miles (1056 feet) down to our private association ocean-side beach or to one of the nearby public beaches and spread out your towels and umbrellas.

From our private beach on the bay (1100 feet from house) you can walk on the Brewter flats literally for miles. If you walk left there are some very interesting tidal pools and large stones - great pics to be had. Fun fact: Brewster has more tidal flat area than any other town in North America.

(Cottage rental comes with portable beach chairs and umbrella, please ask what we have in stock.)

For hiking and biking both paved and woodland trails - check out nearby Nickerson State Park in Brewster. And for longer routes - The Cape Rail Trail has multiple entry and parking spots in Brewster; the nearest is 2 miles from the cottage. (We recommend that you park at the entryway and do not bike from the cottage.)

There are also local shops for kayak, paddle-board and bike rentals; most deliver.

Golfers, check out The Captains Course on Freeman Way in Brewster. They have 2 courses (36 holes), a classic putting green (free), and a good restaurant for lunch. PGA level pros are also available to help you catch up on your game.

Farm stands for local produce include the Chatham Bars Inn Farm located in Brewster - on Main Street, Hyacinth House Farm Stand (round the corner on Lower Road) and Friends Farm Stand in Orleans (6 miles). If you want to try a real locals only spot go to Not Enough Acres Farm in nearby Dennis and bring cash (small bills, honor system).

We added a firepit in the backyard and are presently also supplying wood. See pics!

We also now have full house AC as of 2022.

For a local music scene - say ages 21 - 65 you can walk to the Brewster Woodshed at night - Fridays, Sat, Sundays, they have live sets. Info on Facebook.

If ice-cream is your thing the Brewster Scoop is an easy walk, open til 9pm thru labor day. Coffee lovers will enjoy Snowy Owl cafe, which roasts its own coffee, also on 6a in Brewster.

Paddle-boarding tours are also available nearby in Brewster - safari leaders take entire families through a beautiful maze of ponds. Including a very cool evening “glow tour” lit with board lights.

If you want to get out to Historic Nantucket Island or Martha’s Vineyard you can book a ferry with the steamship authority in Hyannis (25 min drive) and even take your bike. Car service is also available.

If you like to antique and/ or thrift, Brewster has many top notch antique shops along 6A. We also have thrift stores, and hand-made local artists craft and pottery shops. And you can find boutique shopping at the Lemon Tree Plaza; a personal favorite being The Cook Shop.

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.

We will be happy to send you a pricing summary for your stay, which includes rental, taxes and added fees (such as the linens package). Or you may request the contract which includes a full summary.

We have added a substantial cleaning upgrade thru 2023, which includes blankets, comforters, and pillow casings replaced per guest use.

For visitors who will need to rely on a strong and consistent wifi signal, we have purchased an upper tier package for download speed, and the wifi signal broadcasts to both patio areas (screen porch and back brick patio.)

Thank you for visiting!

    Perfect home

    We rented this charming home for the first time. The home is so nice and comfortable. The patio and yard are both wonderful, nice and quiet overlooking the pond. House is fully stocked, including the kitchen with everything which made it so so convenient for us. The owner, Dana, was very very nice and helpful. She does a great job on the upkeep of this home. We highly highly recommend this charming home.

    September is underrated!

    This incredible rental just gets better and better every year! The September weeks feature solitude, quiet and array of things to do and experience during the Cape's early off-season. This year we hosted a dinner for friends on the wonderful patio over-looking Cobb's Pond while enjoying the gentle swaying of the trees while watching the sunset. Does it get much better than that? No! The host is always accessible; the house is incredibly well-equipped and it's the perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate. show more show less

    Hi Peter, what a great review, thank you very much! As per the holiday season, we close the house in mid November and shut the water off. If it's a warm fall we might extend the season. I would love to decorate it and and make it a worthwhile stop for winter holidays, retreats, fishing… but we have decided to stick with our six month rental season and will open again in April.

    So relaxing

    We loved our stay at Dana's cottage. We relaxed on the back patio, paddle boarded the pond several times, told stories and laughed around the fire pit with family and friends and unwound on chairs by the pond watching the sun go down. This place is perfect for couples or a family. We would love to rent again.

    Perfect

    After over 40 years of memorable one week per year cottage rentals on Cape Cod, our now family of 6 adults has found the perfect place for the rest of our greatly anticipated continuing annual vacations on the Cape… now to be at this delightfully "perfect" cottage, comfortable and charmingly decorated, with a calming pond view and a very short walk to a wonderful Brewster bay beach, or back to the historic buildings and small town businesses along the dappled tree domed Cape roadway 6A that IS, to me, truly Cape Cod.

    We loved it here, and are already counting the days until we come back again.

    Adorable Cottage with Many Amenities

    So many things to love about this place! Well-stocked kitchen and beach supplies, great fire pit by the lake for s'mores, a fun rowboat, bookshelves full of books, comfy beds, good wi-fi service. Charming patio with lounge chairs, dining table and chairs and lots of beautiful flowers, as well as an additional screened-in dining area with sweet twinkle lights. No washer/dryer, but there is a clothesline with clothespins in the yard. Dana is a wonderful host who is available but never intrusive, and was quick to refund our security deposit. show more show less

    Wonderful Refuge Found in Brewster for Overworked Couple!

    My girlfriend and I had an incredible stay here in Brewster just a few weeks after Labor Day. I think this was perhaps the perfect time to find ourselves at Dana's lovely house. Situated right on Cobb's pond with access to a rowboat and fire pit the backyard views would've been worth the very reasonable rental price alone. The inside decor was also lovely with a wide assortment of books to get lost in or learn from, there are a ton of cookbooks! There is also an indoor fire place for nights it gets cool. There is also access to a private beach which is easy walking distance from the house but it was a bit too cold at this point in the season to enjoy it much.

    Dana was a fantastic host all around offering fresh cut wood for both fire places, an extra pair of sheets for the bed if we needed them on hand, and checking in with us to see if we may need anything else for our stay. And speaking of the bed… the Master bedroom had one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept on. If it wasn't for our day trips to the surrounding towns I could've napped my entire vacation away! There are two other bedrooms with two twin beds perfect for kids or guests.

    We took two journeys to Provincetown which again was probably the perfect time to go with no traffic since it technically was the start of the off-season. Our favorite little breakfast place when we didn't cook was a little place called Grumpy's about 10 minutes down the road.

    Overall we needed a little break from the insane work schedules we were on and Dana's house and Brewster offered us a refuge to rest and recharge mentally and physically. If our schedules allow for it we will absolutely be back next year!!!

    Thank you so much Dave and Krystal - our fall guests will appreciate hearing that the cottage makes for a good respite post season. I noticed that you had set up your office in the living room so that you could get a pond view. Which seems to be the thing for couples and guests who rent by themselves. I used to do that- and have a fire in the fireplace. And a cup of tea.

    Grumpy's in Dennis is open year-round - and has been a favorite family restaurant for us for breakfast and lunch. Fortunately, in the fall season we still have restaurants like Sunbird, and Hole in One in Orleans and local inside joint - Hanger B in Chatham - open for breakfast and lunch. If pastries or quiche are your thing we also have Eat Cake for Breakfast in Brewster. As a few thoughts for off-season visitors.

    You were great guests - thank you again for selecting our cottage and I hope to see you again!

    Adorable, relaxing, so well appointed!

    The cottage is modern as well as homey. The colors and touches of stained glass give the house a playful modernist character. The book collection is eclectic and tailored for a full range of readers. The patio is really the second living room. We sat at the edge of the pond with our morning tea/coffee. All this and a short walk to a private association beach.

    We had 2 interactions with Dana during the week, she was so conscientious and ready to help. The house is clean and very well cared for.
    I can't believe I'm writing a review. I kind of want to keep this one a secret.

    Mooncusser bliss!

    This cottage exceeded my expectations! An artisans touch everywhere you look, most rooms looking out onto charming Cobb pond (I went swimming in May with a half wetsuit), sliding doors from the living room and master bedroom out to the patio for morning coffee or spectacular sunsets, a chefs kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and comfortable beds! Thoughtfulness at every turn, the house is stocked with many amenities from tea lights to flashlights to bug spray.

    Daily we walked the flats at Breakwater Beach, and every amenity imaginable is within a few miles. We rented in early May, and despite Spring blooms just arriving, there were beautiful potted flowers at every entrance! Also Dana is an excellent host, from making excellent recommendations to even delivering a few stamps!

    Our stay was truly restorative, and we already look forward to returning to this special spot of Cape Cod bay.

    Thank you, I am touched by that review and my family is very pleased that you thought that the cottage is a good place to land and recuperate! Didn't know until you told me that the living room is a good place to record music because of the high ceiling. You are our first singer song writer in residence. And this is the first time we've made the house available so early in the spring - so thank you for that feedback for other potential guests who are wondering if it's a good time of year to visit. We look forward to hosting more guests like yourself who need a change of scene and some inspiration, and are glad that you found us! Looking forward to seeing you again in the fall.

    A beautiful, charming, clean, cozy cottage. Perfect

    We stayed at the cottage for 5 nights in late October. It was one of the best rentals we've experienced.
    Pros: lovely and clean and spacious with lots of light and windows with views.
    All amenities (coffee maker, dishes, pans, cloths, mixer, blender etc. Equipped like home
    Beautiful scenery and the row boat is not to be missed we went out on it twice daily or more
    Lovely secluded quiet pond, grounds and neighborhood
    Easy walk to the beach to see amazing low tide scenery and wildlife viewing
    Easy walk into Brewster for coffee/shopping (don't miss the subs at Brewster Market)
    Comfy beds with soft sheets and warm blankets
    Pretty bath with lots of charm and tons of hot water in the shower
    Wood-burning fireplace inside and fire pit outside for relaxing evenings
    Screened in porch with views of the lake and a place to put sandy gear (beach chairs included)
    Lovely outdoor patio for eating, lounging and napping
    The host went above and beyond, replied to any question, checkup up via text to see if things were going well. Very friendly and welcoming. Also allowed for self check-in so we didn't worry about getting delayed on arrival.
    If you want an excellent cape cod home that has tons of warmth and charm and is in proximity to town and to the rest of the cape you cannot go wrong. We cannot write enough about how we enjoyed about our stay.

    Charming Cottage in Perfect Location

    We so enjoyed our stay in this perfectly situated charming cottage. The owner's attention to detail was evident from the moment we entered the property. The combination of amenities, pond view & access, and the bay beach just a quick walk down the road made for a great vacation oasis. We experienced the tranquility of the pond in the rowboat and the beauty of the private beach at the bay. We loved it all so much that we wanted to stay longer! We'll definitely be back.

    The Dunbar family has been renting out our family cottage since 2012. The house was built by my grandfather in 1960. My parents bought it in the early 1970s, renovated it, put in cathedral ceilings and a skylight, and built a new fireplace.

    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.

    One thing I personally liked to do was go into the ocean for a swim and then come back to the house and get into the pond, which was always warmer. At that time we had a sailboat, and we used to go out with our cousins and neighbors and pretend we were on The Love Boat (1970's). We played a lot of games in the pond, and used the back yard for whiffle ball. I also enjoyed walking through the neighborhood and looking at the salt spray roses and other wild plants.

    I have many fond memories of making blueberry muffins with my family and walking to the Brewster Store. And going out at night to play miniature golf. And my dad liked to bring home lobsters to cook. It was a pleasant place to be.

    When we stayed there we kept it simple, But there is a lot more to do locally. Active families can rent or bring golf clubs, kayaks, bikes, small sailboats and paddle-boards... and we are happy to help you find out more about your Brewster area options.

    We hope that you will also make some special memories at the house. And we thank you for your interest in the cottage.


    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. In 2015 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. In 2017 we added a wall ac/heat unit to make sure the house is cool enough. and in 2018 we opened up the living room for added space. In 2020 we added a firepit.

    The backyard is level, has natural grass 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 is not commercial. The main road has kept many of its 19th century homes and charm.

    Brewster's central location makes it easy to visit classic towns like Chatham and P-town. Or go the other way to hop a ferry to visit Nantucket or Martha's vineyard. We are right in the middle.

    Brewster has several entrances to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We also have two bike shop rental companies that can deliver to the house. And two kayak and paddle board delivery businesses which also offer pond and bay tours.

    But why not stay at the house? Go out on the boat and spot turtles, or float around and go fishing. Spend the day at the private beach, grill dinner and have an outdoor fire. Or play games in the back....

    Brewster also has more tidal flat walking at low tide than any other town in north America. Check the tide chart! Also fun for kids and adults who are looking for tidal pools to explore (hermit crabs, shells, minnows...).

    The local Brewster restaurants offer a wide range of options: fried clams and lobster rolls, burgers and ice cream, fine dining, bistro, vegan and gluten free.

    Brewster also has a great coffee shop, Snowy Owl Coffee, and a decadent pastry shop - Eat Cake For Breakfast.

    You might also visit a farm stand for local tomatoes and salad greens, order a steamed lobster to go from Breakwater Fish - and then eat on the back patio with your own cocktails and a sunset.

    There's lots to do, see and eat!
