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.
