Description

Description

This cottage has everything you'll need for a quiet and relaxing getaway. At the rear of the cottage are three modest bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, one with a full size bed and one with a twin size bed. There is also a small folding cot with a thin mattress really only suitable for a small person. The bathroom has been completely renovated recently. The eat-in kitchen seats 6 and opens onto a comfortable living area. From there, look through the large windows to a beautifully landscaped sitting and outdoor dining area. This includes a picnic table and additional seating and a table for entertaining. The checkout time is 10 am and the check in time is 4 pm.

The cottage is set back from the quiet street and surrounded by trees and gardens. Short trips take you to shops and restaurants, bakeries, convenience stores and supermarkets, museums historic sites, and our library. Located within 1 mile of the Cape Cod Rail Trail, within 2 miles to Bay beaches and quick access to the rest of Cape Cod via the Mid-Cape Highway. But best of all is the Private Beach on Sheep Pond, a very short stroll away.

    About our green amenities: Our cottage is well insulated and has ceiling fans in all the rooms. Cape Cod is usually nice and cool in the evening. We do have an air conditioner we can put in the living room which would keep the whole house cool. Last summer was the first time we have ever put in on request from a renter, who used it for only a couple of days. We also have a compost bucket which helps grow our gardens

    We Love This Place

    We have vacationed many times on Cape Cod. This is our favorite,and we will be back again. The cottage is really comfortable and has everything we ever need. It’s a great place to relax after a busy day at the beach, or Sheep Pond or the bike trail - and you’ll have access to all of them from here. The host, Doug, is really, really knowledgeable. He’s a local historian and naturalist.

    Maybe the best part is Sheep Pond. The bottom is sandy, and the water is amazingly clear. I don’t know any other lake that is clearer. If you can, bring masks and snorkels. You’ll be surprised when you paddle around the pond. There will be no issues with noisy motorboats, and the houses on the shore are set back, and nearly invisible. show more show less

    A beautiful slice of heaven

    We absolutely love this piece of paradise tucked away on a quiet street in Brewster. It is every bit the relaxing haven you’d want for a perfect family getaway. Open layout, uniquely designed, and in a prime location for a quick walk to a private pond! The owners go above and beyond to make sure all of your needs are met, and they give great restaurant recommendations too! We will continue to make Paradise our home away from home for as long as possible!

    Here we come again!

    We will be renting this cottage for the fourth year in a row this July and we are so excited to be back in Brewster. Doug and Peggy are the nicest people. They live nearby and are always very accommodating.

    The cottage is situated in a quiet neighborhood a short walk to the association beach on Sheep Pond which offers swimming, boating (kayaking, sailing and canoeing) or just enjoying the warm summer sun.

    Brewster and nearby Dennnis and Orleans offer an array of restaurants, shops and recreational options. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is just down the road and it is a short drive to the Bay beaches.
    But the property itself is really the most charming aspect of your stay. The cottage is quaint, offers an eat-in kitchen, two outside seating areas for lounging or cook-outs, an outdoor shower and a washer and dryer.

    The gardens are beautiful and the opportunity for peaceful relaxation is wonderful. We are counting the days.

    Quiet & relaxing

    What a cute spot! Just the right size, very clean and cozy. Sheep Pond is a gem! Clear water, great for kids to play, easy to walk to and not crowded at all. Thank you, Doug & Peggy! We will be back for sure!

    A Pristine Cottage

    My family of four stayed at this home this year and we couldn't have been more pleased. The inside of the home was completely spotless and was tastefully decorated. I loved the "vintage" kitchen, with enough seating to eat inside if we wanted. The living room area was very comfortable and the television is updated with plenty of available channels. Just as important as the inside, the outside was beautifully landscaped with two choices of outdoor seating. We had an A+ weather week so we took full advantage of eating outside and taking outdoor showers.

    The home was in close proximity to Sheep Pond, which our two little girls loved. As Doug said, and I agreed, "It's the best pond on the Cape." We definitely look forward to future vacations here. One last thing - the home does not come with A/C but I would not let that stop you from staying here. There is a lot of shade surrounding the home which helps keep it cool, and there are ceiling fans which we found very effective. I was nervous it would be an issue but it was not.

    Adorable and convenient!

    We stayed off season to visit with family. The yard is uniquely landscaped and in a quiet neighborhood yet just a few minutes from local conveniences like Ferretti's market. Sheeps Pond is a five minute walk away (if that) and quite serene. The beaches are also just a 5-10 minute drive away, or a quick bike ride. Nickerson State Park and the shops in Brewster are also quite close.

    The interior is adorable and accented with quirky pictures, a retro kitchen table and chairs and breakfast bar which open to a comfortable living room which is framed with wide windows overlooking the gorgeous front yard. Despite it being a little chilly outside, we were quite snug in this cozy cottage. We'll definitely be back! show more show less

    She says, "really cute." He says, "great, quiet location."

    The cottage had everything we needed. Sheep Pond is the classic Cape pond - quiet and crystal clear. The access to the bike trail is really good. Shopping and all that are close by, but when we were sitting out in the beautifully landscaped yard, it seemed like the shops were a thousand miles away. Doug gave great advice on beach access and woodland hikes. Brewster is our favorite. Check out the mill for some history!

    We've become vacation rental owners just in the past few years. We enjoy knowing that people can come and appreciate Brewster, where we've lived for over 40 years. I lived on Sheep Pond for many years and we lived there when we first got married. We never moved very far away and have enjoyed sailing, swimming and canoeing ever since. It is a beautiful clear deep pond with 70+ acres of town-owned woodland with walking trails just across the pond from the association beach. I also run the town antique water-powered gristmill. Stop by on Saturdays 10-2 on your way in or out of town and say hello and pick up some fresh ground cornmeal. Hope you come and enjoy Brewster! Doug and Peg Erickson

    What is special about this property?
    This cottage allows access to private association beaches on Sheep Pond, which is widely known as one of the cleanest and most beautiful on the Cape. Walk, ride or drive to the beach.

    What is special about your town?
    Daily, our several bay beaches provide pounding surf for swimming and boating at high tide, and wide expanses of ''the flats'' for walking and exploration at low tide. Brewster has the most freshwater ponds of any town on the Cape. Many of the walks on trails through the 100's of wooded acres in town will bring you to within view of these peaceful ponds. Our town boasts the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, Nickerson State Park, miles of walking and biking trails, Drummer Boy Park, the Brewster Ladies' Library, the Stony Brook Gristmill and Museum, (where you can watch the production of stone-ground cornmeal), and many shops, restaurants, and cultural venues and events.
    All in all, Brewster is one of the most unspoiled, picturesque, and peaceful of the 15 towns of Cape Cod.
