Our family of 7 adults and 3 children (ages 6 months to 3 1/2 years) stayed at the Captain Rogers House for our first-ever vacation on Cape Cod. From the moment we walked in to the house, we felt welcome and "home". There were many positive features of the house:
Location: Cotuit is a charming, quiet town with easy access to tourist spots. Nearby grocery stores and shopping was a definite plus. The easy walk to 2 different beaches was great for the little ones (thanks for the wagon, beach toys,towels, etc. -much less for us to cart on the trip).
Layout: The house allowed us to have our "group time" as well as private space as well. The sun porch - just off the large living room was a favorite as well as the screened in porch in the back of the house. The little alcove at the top of the steps was sweet, and the eating nook in the kitchen worked well for meals and a few card games.
Kitchen: The well stocked kitchen, while dated (the future plans for this room look great!), was terrific. We had 2 "eat in" meals and the kitchen served us very well. What a treat to have the cooking oil, S&P, spices, pots, pans, serve-ware, plastics, foils, etc. available.
Beds and Baths: Comfortable beds (not always a given) as well as clean, efficient bathrooms were truly appreciated. The towels and amenities were like an upscale B&B. Just an all around comfortable space.
General thoughtfulness: Nancy is a joy to work with. Prior to arriving, she had communicated in a timely, efficient manner. After arrival, she and her on site manager made sure that they were available to help should we have any needs (we did not). All the little extras in the house speak to an attention to detail and guest comfort that puts this vacation home in a class by itself!
