Description

Description

Relax! Ocean breezes caress this lovely Cape Cod home, located just off the entrance to Falmouth Harbor. Listen to ferries whistle as they carry vacationers to and from Martha's Vineyard, just a 35 minute boat ride away. Start the day with breakfast in the sunlit dining room and watch the masts of sailboats as they exit the harbor. The house is arranged perfectly for a family, with two bedrooms (king, double) on the first floor, and another double on the second, along with a dorm area (4 twin beds) for the kids.

Enjoy a short walk to Falmouth's quaint Main Street through tree-lined neighborhoods, and sample the eclectic fare at some of the area's best restaurants. Swim at Falmouth's wonderful nearby beaches such as Falmouth Heights or Surf Drive. Bike along the Shining Sea Bikeway, through salt ponds, along the shore, and into Woods Hole.

Or stay close to your home-away-from home and catch some rays in the sunny and private back yard, or enjoy a book on the wisteria-shaded patio. The gas grill is perfect for a family cookout, and the washer and dryer provide the convenience of home. This true Cape Cod-style home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood and is a perfect base for either an active stay, a lazy and restorative old-fashioned summer vacation, or a little of both!


Sunny Days:
The yard and surrounding roads are lush with greenery and flowers. Walking and biking are great ways to see the area - and there is so much that is nearby. The Shining Sea Bikeway wends its way 3 miles past Falmouth's beaches, cottages, and ponds. Whether you're a nature buff or shopper, you can find things to do within a mile of the house. Fishing boats, ferries, and scenic sails depart from the harbor daily.

There are exclusive shops on Main Street, and the Falmouth Commodore baseball team plays 2-3x per week in summer. The family-friendly Surf Drive beach is within walking distance and children will enjoy exploring the tidal pools for a variety of sea life and beautiful shells; many other beaches are a short drive or bike ride away.

After biking or the beach, a great place to have a casual meal is at Jimmy's clam shack; it's at the end of the street and has picnic seating right on the water - a perfect spot to watch the boats come and go!


Rainy Days:
We've tried to equip the house with lots of rainy day ideas and activities. There are two TV's with cable, but we also have many games and puzzles that will keep a wide range of ages occupied. A rainy day is also the perfect time to take advantage of the wonderful shops and bookstores on Main Street - a great place to go souvenir hunting or to find the next vacation book. Woods Hole offers an interactive aquarium. In nearby Mashpee, there are movie theaters, a kids' craft center, more shops, and restaurants.


Excursions:
If you're feeling adventurous, there are several recommended day trips. Taking a 45 minute ferry to Martha's Vineyard from the harbor, with or without bikes, is a refreshing side trip - the Vineyard's carousel, gingerbread cottages, winery, bike paths, and scenic vistas are all memorable. Heritage Plantation in Sandwich (a 45 minute drive) is packed with history, gorgeous grounds, and an antique auto museum. The Cape Cod Central Railroad in Hyannis runs scenic and dinner trains to the Cape Cod Canal and back. Provincetown and the National Seashore beaches are only 1 1/2 hours from Falmouth, and offer whale watches, dune tours, more bike paths, and funky shopping areas.

    Lovely week

    The listing describes the cottage as "Charmingly Authentic Cape Cod Cottage" and every word of that description applies to this lovely cottage. It's in a great location on a quiet street around the corner from Falmouth Harbor and near several Falmouth beaches, good restaurants and Falmouth's main street. The house is welcoming the moment you enter. It is furnished with antiques that suit the house perfectly and are comfortable as well. The two downstairs bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.
    The upstairs dormitory accommodates at least 8 and includes a bathroom as well. We did not use this space so we cannot comment on how comfortable it would be in extremely hot temperatures.
    The kitchen is fully equipped which has often not been the case in other properties we have rented in the past.
    We spent the greater part of each day out on the back patio which opens onto a beautifully landscaped backyard. A perfect place to have your morning coffee, evening cocktail, read a book, take a nap... . Complete relaxation!
    The Homeowners were fully responsive and addressed our few requests/inquiries immediately and satisfactorily.
    If one is looking for a true Cape Cod experience, this is it. If you're looking for modern this may not be it, but you'll be missing out on old world Cape Cod Charm.

    Best location!

    We loved our week here! We had six people all together and there was plenty of room for everyone. The patio and outdoor shower are fabulous! We have rented houses on the Cape for 28 years and this was the best stocked kitchen - all shapes and sizes of cocktail glasses and even corn on the cob holders!
    We set up the card table for jigsaw puzzles in front of the window in the dining room and that's where everyone gathered in between activities. It was perfect!
    The location! We walked to the beach, into town and to The Boathouse and Flying Bridge for dinner. A walk over to Falmouth Heights Beach is a great morning walk with water views the entire way - and you can grab coffee and a muffin at The Black Dog along the way - what a way to start the day!
    Jane was delightful to work with from start to finish. Highly recommend!
    Another note: the beaches were all free to get into this week for the past few years.

    Great Vacation!

    The house was perfect! The location is great - easy to walk downtown for dinner, even easier to walk to The Flying Bridge Restaurant! We enjoyed walking along Falmouth harbor - seeing the beautiful boats and watching the ferry go in and out. Easy to bike to the beach and to get to the Sea to Shining Sea bike path. The beds were very comfortable, and the AC units/fans kept the house cool. The kitchen had everything we needed and coffee on the back patio was a great way to start the day!

    Our favorite things were the lovely backyard with so many flowers, birds and bunnies, the awesome outdoor shower, the big table we played many games at and the beds were quite comfy! I enjoyed the upstairs room - so quaint and loved waking up to that cute little open window above. My mother thought her bedroom was the best on the first floor in the front. The "kids" (age 20-25) enjoyed the bunk room. So many towels, books, dishes etc. Location was amazing. We biked to beach and on bike trail too. We biked down to Falmouth Heights and found that fun restaurant with the floor of shells across from the beach. Can't say enough good things! show more show less

    Family Vacation

    Our family has been going to Falmouth for several years. This was the first time we stayed in this area. We loved our stay at this property. The patio was our favorite part. It was perfect for morning coffee. The location was amazing. A quiet neighborhood so close to everywhere we wanted to be. The walk to the beach was easy for all of us. We walked to the baseball game, the market and Main Street.

    There were 7 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out.

    Jane responded to my(many) questions very quickly and was so helpful. show more show less

    2nd time here

    We returned after 6 years and had forgotten how great the location is. We walked to the farmers market and craft market. Walked to the Flying Bridge and Pier 37. Walked the east side of the harbor with our grandkids. The neighborhood is very quiet an d the kids were able to ride their bikes without worry. The beaches are close and also within walking distance.

    We will definitely be back.

    Relaxing Family Trip

    We took a three-generation family trip in June and stayed at Jane's cottage. Jane was genuinely communicative throughout the booking process. Prior to arriving, I had questions on internet broadband speed and parking as we had both WFH and newborn circumstances. Jane responded timely and provided detailed responses.

    The cottage has many rooms and beds for everyone to spread out. We enjoyed watching Wimbledon and the Olympic trials in the TV room while the kids watched cartoons in the family room. There is one full bathroom downstairs and a half bath upstairs. There are plenty of towels for everyone. Laundry machine and dryer worked great. The dryer is located in the garage.

    The cottage is a fifteen minute stroll to the beach with kids in tow. We loved the Cedarwood outdoor shower that was just installed. We didn't cook or use the grill as the location is a fifteen minute walk to downtown for eateries and ice cream.

    We look forward to coming back soon.

    Great Stay!

    Our week at this cottage was just what we hoped it would be! The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The location is key, easy walk to downtown, the harbor and the beach.

    Jane was wonderful to deal with and the information provided prior to our arrival was very helpful.

    The size of the house was more than what we need for a party of 4, so we had lots of room to spread out. The backyard is beautiful and we spent lots of time enjoying the yard and playing croquet.

    We hope to return soon!!

    Great Time!

    Our family of five had a wonderful week at this home. Great location—walking distance to beautiful Surf Drive Beach, Patriot deep sea fishing boats, Patriot ferry to Martha's Vineyard and even to downtown, Dairy Queen ( kids favorite) and the Commodores Baseball. Bike trails nearby. Spacious home with a great back yard. We would stay here again. Convenient to everything!

    My grandparents purchased the cottage in 1963 when I was a child. We spent family vacations there for years, and still do with our own children and extended family.



    There are lots of special memories: 4th of July Fireworks over the harbor, Falmouth Road Race runners speeding past the end of the street, playing croquet in the yard, bringing a picnic to the Thursday Night Summer Band Concerts on the marina, wandering down Main Street for an ice cream on a hot night, biking on the Shining Sea Bikeway to beaches, and spending special times in the off-season (May and October are especially lovely!).

    Because it is a treasured family home, we hope that our guests enjoy the love and care that we put into maintaining it and insuring that they have a good vacation.

    Come and make your own memories!


    What is special about this property?
    One of my favorite spots is the patio. Whether we are gathering for meals, or games, or just reading, it's a cool and quiet place to relax. Birdsong and bunnies are plentiful! Also, there is really no need for a car; the beach, the harbor (and ferries), Main Street, Falmouth's Cape Cod Baseball League team, and a grocery store are all within easy reach on foot.
