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, and cheerful colors.

New 2017-18 installed AC.

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.

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.

The pond is pristine and a nice place for swimming. The pond is restricted to 10hp crafts, and tends to have only kayak and canoe traffic. 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.

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, or go .2 miles down to our private association beach or the nearby public beaches and spread out your towels and umbrellas.

Near Nickerson State Park - for fall hiking and biking in the woods -also near the lovely marsh walk at the Museum of Natural History.

Paddle-boarding tours are newly available(supfari.com)- safari leaders take entire families through a beautiful maze of ponds.

There are also local shops for kayak and bike rentals.

And sailing lessons are available at Upper Mill Pond.

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. Thank you for visiting.

About our green amenities: We are environmentally aware and do not use fertilizers or Roundup or chemical treatments on the property.

For guests who want the convenience of lightweight nonbreakable tablewares - addition to regular plates - we also have plastic beach cups, platic plates and reusable forks and knives. There are shopping bags in the pantry closet, and this year we added a Pure water filter pitcher for the fridge. We drink the Brewster water but want to help our guests to cut down on platic bottled water purchases. Thank you for caring!

Lovingly Cared for Home in a Wonderful Location

This is our second time staying in this home and we will be back again in the future. It is a lovely, well-maintained home in a quiet, peaceful location. It is on a pretty pond and a short walk to a private bayside beach.

Some vacation rentals do just enough maintenance to get by—not this one. The owners clearly care about providing an enjoyable vacation experience. The house is lovingly decorated, well taken care of, and well-stocked. The owner is responsive.

Our family visited with two adults and four teens/tweens and had plenty of room for everyone. We spent many hours sitting on the patio enjoying the pond view, ate dinner each night on the screened in porch, and found the home and its environment to be welcoming and relaxing.

We brought our own kayaks to use on the pond (and there is a rowboat available at the house). The neighborhood is quiet and our family members kept referring to the area as peaceful. While kayaking on the pond our 12 year old declared "the whole world should be like this!"

Some activities we enjoyed nearby: Wellfleet Flea Market (20-30mins away), Nauset Beach (public oceanside beach - 20 mins away), Nickerson State Park (about 2 miles away-hiking, biking, lakeside beaches, boat and paddleboard rentals), Cape Cod Rail Trail (about 1 mile away), Cafe Alfresco (an easy stop on Saturday for lunch before checking in or breakfast after checking out). You can also easily walk to a number of small stores and restaurants on Route 6A.

Hi Lori, I don't know if I already sent you an email from my personal account, but thank you so much for this great review, and for helping future renters to expand upon their ideas on how to make the best of the location.

With respect to the practical details, I have purchased new tp holders and will have the carpenter fox the towel rack in the small bathroom. I knew about the holders, but not the towel rack. Much better to get him in for a to do list. Thanks for the info.
/>We hope to see you again!

Beat Our Expectations

We loved staying at this cottage! The best part for us was the back brick patio that overlooks the pond. We loved grabbing a book and a coffee or whatever and sitting peacefully, surrounded by greenery and the pond view. The sunsets over the pond are great and the lake itself is very pretty all day long. We enjoyed several row boat rides around the pond as well. The master bedroom is quite large and we enjoyed pond views from there as well as stepping onto the back patio from the bonus slider in the master. The layout of the house is great. We loved entering via the screened-in porch and kicking off our flip flops and entering the kitchen via side slider. We cooked a lot in the kitchen and had everything we needed. The kitchen is beautifully accented. We enjoyed eating at the table between the kitchen and living room, which is right next to a double slider leading to the back patio. We enjoyed plentiful breezes throughout the stay. The living room is very cozy, with very nice decor and a really handsome fireplace. We found the location to be excellent—walkable to private beach or Breakwater beach, as well as the Brewster Store. Also, easy shot West toward's Kate's Seafood, Luke's, Saints Landing beach, and town of Dennis. Also easy shot East on the main Brewster commercial drag, Nickerson State Park, Cobies, the rest of Brewster's great beaches, the town of Orleans, and the rest of the Cape. Neighborhood is quiet, with more dog-walkers than cars. All in all it exceeded our hopes and we were very glad we rented this home. Owner is easy to work with, nice, and very responsive. Secret tip: try to hit the beach (recommend Crosby Landing beach) mid to late afternoon, halfway between low and high tide (tide coming in), on sunny days. The water will be like bath water. We had this experience at 4-6 PM at Crosby when low tide was 1 PM. It was heaven. Enjoy! show more show less

Hi Gabe, thank you!

And also thanks for helping future guests to get a better sense of the house and what you can do nearby. There are seven public beaches on the bay in Brewster. Of course you can use our private beach but people like variety. The present renter wanted to go to an ocean-side beach and we sent her to Nauset in Orleans. Also, dining in Brewster covers more than one age group - we have fine dining and casual eats. The places you noted are family friendly. As a chef, I have tried to anticipate coffee making needs, outdoor dining, kids meals and cocktails, so am very glad to hear that you found what you needed. We have also responded to guests pre- arrival and have purchased what they needed (Keurig and microwave).

Your pre/arrival concern was the heat. And you wanted to know if there were fans in every room (yes) and what kind of ACwas it (split AC with remote control) - since you didn"t even mention it the house must have been cool enough for your August stay.

We hope that you visit us again! And we really appreciate the positive feedback and review!

Beautiful house and a peaceful retreat

This is a lovely, comfortable, well-maintained home with a great location. It is in a quiet, walkable neighborhood. The house had plenty of space for our family of 5 as well as lots of space for storage. The house and property are nicely decorated, very clean, and well supplied for your visit. We cook a lot while on vacation, and this kitchen had all the pots, pans, utensils, and appliances we needed and beyond!

The tree-lined backyard feels quite private. The property is situated on a small pond where we saw a great deal of wildlife. I enjoyed sitting pondside in the quiet mornings, while my kids enjoyed swinging in the hammock and my husband enjoyed his coffee on the brick patio with a view of the pond. The screened in porch was perfect for dinner outdoors.

The private neighborhood beach is close enough that it's easy to walk or ride bikes back and forth to the house throughout the day. The beach was pretty quiet during the early August week we were there -- on weekdays we were often there alone or saw just one other family. A short walk away is a busier public beach which receives visits from the ice cream truck :) We really appreciated the outdoor shower upon returning home from the beach. We could also bike to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, which is about 2 miles away.

In the evenings, we could walk a half mile to the General Store and ice cream shop, head back to the beach to see the sunset and walk the tidal flats, or stay home and watch sunset over the pond.

We had a wonderful, relaxing week in this very comfortable home. I highly recommend it.

Best of Both Worlds

The cottage is a great deal, and we will be back again. My wife and I can be fussy when it comes to rentals at the Cape, but we were both impressed by the comfort and location of the house. It was filled with all the accoutrements you could need for a relaxing vacation, and the owners were very attentive and personable. Our young kids loved all the activities the location had to offer, whether it was riding bikes on the back roads, taking a dip or boat ride on the pond, or walking to the beach. The General Store down the road made for fun morning walks to grab a muffin and coffee. With the pond literally in the back yard, sunsets and tranquil water views were easy to come by and added an additional element of enjoyment. It felt like wherever you turned, the cottage had something fun to offer. We look forward to returning. show more show less

Beautiful Home Perfect for a Getaway

My family of 5 just spent a wonderful week at this home. The house is situated in a private community that is only a 3 minute walk to the beach (in which we had the beach to ourselves nearly every day) plus a 5 minute walk to the Brewster General Store. The house itself was perfect for a family with 3 small children. The one-story living was great and the master bedroom was really spectacular. We have rented a lot of houses on the Cape, and this has been the nicest.

What was really great was that this house was very well stocked. Everything you could possibly need especially in the kitchen – down to spices, plastic wrap, garbage bags, paper towels, tissues, etc – the owner really thought of everything. The back patio was where we spent most of our time. We ate all our meals out there and the views are amazing. There was an older row boat that our 7 year old daughter loved to go out on every day. The living room was a bit small, but as long as the weather is nice, there is plenty of space outdoors.

Would highly recommend this home and plan on returning next year.

The Dunbar family has been renting out our family cottage since 2012. The house was built by my grandfather in 1960, and my dad bought it in the early 1970s, and since then has renovated the house completely.

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. We also played a lot of games in the pond. 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.



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.

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 the downtown area close to us has interesting historic buildings and has kept its charm.

You can walk to the Brewster store from our house and get the morning paper and a donut, or come back later in the day for ice cream at the Brewster Scoop.

The town has interesting things to do for adults and children - you can rent paddle-boards and go for a guided tour on upper mill pond, or take your kayaks out on our pond or to the local state park.

There are several golf courses, good antiquing, fried clam shacks and fine dining. We also have a great new coffee shop at The Herb Shop and for yoga enthusiasts you can get a week pass for Brewster Bikram Yoga, or drive to Dennis to Yoga Cape Cod for more variety.

We recommend the Brewster Fish House for fine dining and Chillingsworth for a bistro style menu. If you want to sit outside for lunch you can try Al Fresco for a lobster roll or a sandwich - and then visit the Kitchen Shop which has great gadgets. For kids there's Kate's Ice Cream, and Joe's Clam Shack, and Cobies for burgers.

In 2015 the town added sidewalks - you can now safely walk to the Brewster Coffee Shop for breakfast, or enjoy a morning walk in that direction past old homes and interesting plantings.
