We have been fortunate enough to spend our last six summer vacations nestled in the walls of the Cottage in the Pines. This rustic vacation rental offered us all the comforts of home; a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room/dining space, two bedrooms on the main floor and an apartment-styled bedroom in the basement with a full bath and living room, which was perfect for our teen companions. The open back porch is perfect for grilling out and enjoying the stars with friends. There is even a comfy hammock tucked between two trees on the back lawn for that late afternoon nap, following a hot day in the Coast Guard Beach sun!
The location of the Cottage is perfect! Being that it is moments away from Rte. 6, it is very peaceful and just a few peddles from the bicycle path. In any direction, one can find a beach to enjoy, or a piece of history in a local windmill or lighthouse. The restaurants offer a variety of menus, from South African to Thai delectables, and, of course, the best seafood around!
For the physically active crowd, there are biking and hiking trails, swimming in the ocean and local freshwater ponds, sailing, kayaking, golfing...the list is endless! And for you fellow shoppers, the Cottage lies in the center of some of the best shopping around, from Chatham to Provincetown! Even the flea market at the Wellfleet Drive-In is an experience not to be missed! For wine lovers, there are the beautiful Truro Vineyards, where you can meander about the grape vines after partaking in an afternoon wine tasting.
To say we are enamored by Cape Cod, starting at the Cottage in the Pines, would be an understatement. Our hosts, Barb and Ed, always made sure that the Cottage was everything we wanted for the week, and more! Don't pass up a chance to experience the Cape from this peaceful corner of heaven!
