Description

Description

This historic yet recently renovated Caretaker’s Cottage was built in 1935 with comfort and convenience in mind. It is located on the Island Creek Oysters’ 11-acre historic, waterfront campus in the heart of the Snug Harbor district of Duxbury.

The ground floor is centered with a spacious kitchen, casual living room, full bathroom with tub/shower, and two cozy bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with a full bed). The kitchen has an island, refrigerator, oven/stove, coffee maker, and toaster. The living area is equipped with two armchairs, a comfortable pull out couch for extra sleeping quarters, a dining table, and a vintage record player to enjoy your favorite vinyl tunes! Just outside the front door is a wooden deck with cushioned chairs for unwinding after a long day of hanging at the raw bar, going on a farm tour, or just perusing around Duxbury. Upstairs is the master suite that comes with a queen bed, half bath, and a desk for the occasional beating back of the email demon.

As Island Creek continues to write the next chapter of this historic property in Duxbury, we would like to showcase how much the property and the town have to offer. Take a quick two minute walk down to our very own private beach overlooking the picturesque Duxbury Bay, yours to utilize for swimming, sun bathing, and paddleboarding (paddleboards provided!). Then walk steps from there to our on-site Food Truck Patio Raw Bar to enjoy oysters on the half shell that are grown only yards away.

Want to learn more about the Island Creek farming process? Take a farm tour while you’re here! We offer farm tours four times a day, five days a week. Walking distance from the cottage you can find a fresh seafood market and lunch spot, a French Bakery and cafe, a 200 year old restaurant and pub, fishing charters, and Duxbury Beach all within walking distance from this charming seaside cottage.

Duxbury is conveniently located halfway between Cape Cod and Boston, a 30-40 minute drive to each, and the Boston commuter rail station is only 10 minutes away. Take a 15 minute trip south to the Plymouth waterfront to hop on a whale watch, check out the shops and restaurants, or view the ''Mayflower,'' or visit nearby historic Plimoth Plantation. We may be biased, but this is a perfect vacation spot for families and friends alike.

What is special about this property?
This historic yet recently renovated Caretaker’s Cottage was built in 1935 with comfort and convenience in mind. It is located on the Island Creek Oysters’ 11-acre historic, waterfront campus in the heart of the Snug Harbor district of Duxbury. The property was formerly owned for over 50 years by Battelle Memorial Institute’s Marine Science Division. The caretaker of the Battelle property lived in this cottage to ensure the facilities and grounds were always taken care of. Notably, Battelle scientists identified shellfish aquaculture as a priority here in Duxbury.
