Guest Reviews

Margy and Rick are wonderful and attentive hosts. They were there when we arrived to walk us through the space and give us the lay of the land. They came by a few times during the week for rubbish removal and grounds maintenance and to check in. They gave a lot of great tips on the area which helped our stay to be as fun as possible. And the home is a lovely historic home, kept with love and attention. The whole family really enjoyed our time there!

Rick and Margy are wonderful hosts. Their home is great for large groups, and was perfect for our several small children. There were plenty of things to do within walking distance (including a great little cafe/market RIGHT across the street, and beaches and a library within a mile). The house was fully stocked as well. This was our first time using AirBnB and Rick and Margy exceeded all our expectations. They truly thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and were very good about communicating with us before and during our stay. We can’t thank them enough for helping us have an awesome vacation! show more show less

Our family spent a week at the Ryder House to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, and we could not have enjoyed it more. It is a great spot for a group looking to enjoy a charming historic home in a lovely location. Margy and Rick showed amazing attention to detail and thoughtfulness throughout the entire booking and check-in process. They met us at the home and explained everything in detail, shared local tips and history, left us with groceries, and were available throughout the time we were there to respond to any need. The kitchen is very well equipped, and there is an outdoor gas grill as well. Our family enjoyed cooking meals together during our week there. The house is not large but it has many very comfortable spaces, making it easy for large groups to spread out in different areas for different activities. We had a number of children in our group and they were thrilled with the toys, puzzles and outdoor games, as well as the great muffins from the general store across the street. Cotuit was an easy jumping off point for visits around the Cape as well. We went to the beach, local museums and took at day trip to Nantucket. There is a small beach just a short walk from the house that was perfect for the kids. All around a wonderful stay. show more show less

Marty and Rick were great hosts. They purchased some items for us to make our stay more welcome. Beautiful setting and their patio was a great day place to start the day having coffee and breakfast. I had a group of 9 people and it was roomy enough for everyone and I would definitely stay there again.

The house is historic and beautiful, perfect for our three generation family reunion. Margy and Rick were always available and responsive to any need. Many happy times spent in the gorgeous back yard gazing at the distant water, while our youngest was swinging on the tree tire. Great to have a car pass to the pretty Cotuit beaches. HIghly recommended.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Ryder House this summer, and it proved to be the perfect landing spot for our trip to Cape Cod. We were able to do lots of day trips, and Margy and Rick had everything needed for a wonderful stay. The owners were so wonderful and met us as we checked in. They showed us around, told us everything we needed to know and provided us with a guidebook of local destinations, restaurants, etc. Their barn was stocked with all the necessary equipment for a great time at the beach, and we had access to it all. The garden was in full bloom. The house, though on the historical registry felt wonderfully clean with a layout conducive to a family stay. I should also add that prior to our trip, Margy was SO helpful in our planning efforts. What a wonderful hostess! We would happily return to the Ryder House if we ever vacation in Cape Cod again. It was truly a week to remember! show more show less

Margy and Rick's home is a beautiful, comfortable place to stay in a wonderful location (you can see the sea from the kitchen window!). It was clean, the breakfast was great, and Margy and Rick were incredibly helpful, giving us recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

5 star review: My friends and I were only able to stay for one night but it was a lovely start to our weekend at Martha's Vineyard. Margy was pretty flexible with our arrival time and showed us around her beautiful home. She also had a great breakfast for us in the morning and made sure we were all as comfortable as possible.

Our stay at Margy and Rick's house was great! The rooms and bathrooom are very nice and clean. The backyard is just beautiful and we spent some good evenings in the veranda. Margy and Rick were very helpful along our stay and told us how to get easily to the places we wanted to see in Cape Cod. The location, Cotuit, is great to go to Martha's Vineyard and whales watching. Their house is so cute and typical. We really loved staying there and felt like home. Margy also makes breakfast with fresh fruits, english muffins, bagels, eggs... which is just amazing. It was my parents' first Air BNB experience and they were thrilled! show more show less

Rick and Margy are pleased to offer our historic home for your rental vacation. We rented this house out in the summers for many years, then lived here full time for 10 years. We will move out for the summer but will be living nearby and available for questions, picking up trash and recycling 3x week, keeping the gardens watered and weeded. We have a landscaping company that will mow weekly and an irrigation system that waters the front yard.
We have rented many vacation homes ourselves and know what works and what doesn't, so we are making sure we have what you need. We try to keep condiments, spices, plenty of cooking equipment, glasses (and plastic glasses for back yard), blender, wine refrigerator, lots of bath towels and beach towels on hand. We will speak with you during the rental process and again as your rental time comes near, to ensure that we have what you need. When you check in, we will walk you through the house and answer any questions you have. Our goal is your vacation relaxation!
We had short term rentals in 2016 on air bnb and have 5 star reviews from all our guests! We hope you will leave a 5 star review when you leave!

What is special about this property?
Location, location, location! This is a beautiful spot. Our grandkids, nieces and nephews love to come here. You can walk to everything - ball games, library, beach, playground, town dock, groceries. Front and back yards are spacious with room for croquet or bocce, tossing a ball, playing on the tire swing. Kids will come back from the beach, play outside, play games or do puzzles on the porch or dining room table, find a chair and read. The house sets up well for a crowd as there are several spaces where people can go to relax. We love the front porch for dining in the summer - one large round table for 6, plus a card table and a table for 8 for various people configurations. Adirondack and other chairs plus BBQ grille in back yard. Views of the harbor and beautiful gardens from the yard and kitchen.

What is special about your town?
Cotuit is the quintessential Cape Cod village - the type of place where you go for a walk just to see the beautiful town with its historic homes. In the summers the town comes alive with runners, walkers, baby carriages, boaters. There is plenty to do. Cape day trips to Nantucket from Hyannis or to Martha's Vineyard from Falmouth Heights or Woods Hole are a short drive; shopping is close by at Mashpee Commons, Osterville or Hyannis; Cotuit Kettleers baseball games are 2 blocks away; the Cotuit library has great programs for all ages; the Historical Society has a great gift shop, museums and historical gardens; the Cahoon Museum and Cotuit Center for the Arts are both a short drive. Groceries are available across the street or at Stop n Shop or Roche Bros. Peapod delivers. Lots of restaurants, pizza and ice cream close by in Cotuit, Mashpee, Osterville. Visitors can arrive by bus to Hyannis from Boston's South Station or Logan airport or by bus from downtown Providence. Taxis and Uber are available.
