Description

Description

Escape year-round to this charming bungalow for a well-deserved break. Lovingly refurbished to reflect a marine sanctuary, it’s perfect for a family vacation or solitary retreat. It was custom-built in the 1930’s by Brad Norris for his wife’s “summer business”. The large front deck has a dining table, chairs and gas grill.

Upon entering the living room, there is a comfortable couch which opens to a full bed. There are two sturdy reading chairs, a work table for computers and puzzles, a flat screen TV and DVD player. Hardwood floors run throughout with fine woodwork accent moldings. The Mitsubishi air conditioning unit cools the whole house. There are 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, a living room, dining room and full kitchen. The front bedroom has a king bed with shelved head board. The bureau and closet are great storage for clothing. The second bedroom has a full bed, one set of bunk beds, bureau and roomy closet. The hall closet contains bath and beach towels and additional supplies. The full bathroom is across the hall.

The dining room has a Hitchcock dining table for family meals and sideboard. There are games for all ages in the cupboard under the kitchen counter. The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances; toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, teapot, gas stove/oven, blender, food processor, refrigerator and more. All utensils, dishes, cups/mugs, glasses/wine glasses, pots, pans, bowls, casseroles, cutting boards, and grill tools are provided.

The laundry room is in the back hallway at the back entrance. The outdoor shower is out the back to the left near the shed and is a Cape Cod necessity for rinsing off beach sand and ''natural' showers. The beach chairs are in the shed for guest use. Rubbish and Recycle bins are at the back shelled area.

Quaint and comfortable, you will find all the amenities of home with the simple things of life at your fingertips and footsteps. Pull into our oyster-shelled driveway, unpack, and take a walk up to the Hyannis Port Golf Club for the spectacular sunset over Squaw Island. Walk to Sea Street Market for sundries, groceries, and newspapers.

We are a 3-minute walk to serene Sea Street Beach with picnic area, bath house and Snack Bar. We’ve watched osprey dive for minnows there at low tide! The popular beaches: Veteran’s, Kalmus, (ideal winds for the best sail boarding in New England), and Craigville, are short hops away.

Main Street restaurants feature casual and fine dining with daily catches from local fishing vessels. Visit the Hyannis Harbor Docks to see fish and lobsters being off-loaded, while you shop at the local artisan kiosks. Popular restaurants dot Ocean Street and offer a view of Hyannis Harbor.

Nightlife abounds and cinemas feature box office greats. Enjoy summer theater performances at The Cape Playhouse and unique foreign films shown at The Cape Cod Art Museum. Farm-fresh food is available through “Edible Cape Cod” farm members and Farmer’s Markets. Agri-Tourism farms bring back times past with “Pick Your Own” options, tours, hikes, hayrides and workshops. The local wineries host tastings to showcase specialty wines.

Treat yourself to a quiet home base from which to explore the whole Cape, including the Massachusetts Cultural Coast. Be really “Green”, bring your bikes and ride the bike trails for miles through The Cape Cod National Seashore and beyond. ''Cape Cod Rails to Trails'' will give you a great workout with views of cranberry bogs, marshes, and ocean panoramas. Go fishing for trout, smallmouth bass, chain pickerel and bluegill at one of the 365 kettle hole ponds, or surf cast off Dennis Beach.

Private and public golf courses are minutes away and across town, historic Route 6A will pique your architectural and antique sweet tooth. We are 45 minutes from historical Provincetown, where you can experience the sand dunes, sunset horseback rides, and shop for unique art and entertainment.

Whether this is your summer vacation or a spur of the moment getaway during the winter, leave your cares at home. Come read, write a book, finish a project, sketch, or photograph the beauty of the ocean and its environs. Off-season, multi-month stays for traveling nurses and other professionals, short stays for weddings, conferences, and business are also available.

Keywords: Cape bungalow suitable for couples on a getaway weekend, small families who like gentle beaches, and mature travelers who enjoy peace and quiet.

Great stay

My family and I had a wonderful time. Property was at a great location on the Cape, plus 5 minute walk to a small beach and 15 minute walk to Main Street, were there are cute shops and ice cream. Elaine was great communicator and seemed to take great pride in the Cape and wanting us to enjoy our stay. I have only good to say.

Convenient and nice cottage

Enjoyed staying at the seaside cape cod bungalow. The cottage is a short walk to the beach. It was handy to have a washer and dryer and clothes line too. Even though there is only one bathroom, the outside shower was wonderful. There is a nice deck to sit on and plenty of chairs.

Elaine was wonderful to work with! Enjoyed talking to her. They were right on it when the internet didn't work and also brought a new beach chair. A cart for the beach would be a nice addition. Part of renting places is the response of the owners and they were super!! We will rent again when we make our next trip to the cape! show more show less

Weekend trip to Hyannis
Elaine and John were great hosts for my wife and I during our weekend stay @ Norris Cottages. Elaine provided detailed instructions on the check-in/out process and also tips to help use appliances in the cottage. She also offered great tips on different things to see and do for first-timers to the Cape. We had a great time and look forward to visiting again!

HANDS DOWN the best cottage and hosts EVER!!
If you're looking for the cutest Cape Cod cottage 3 minutes from the beach, this is your place. Not only is the location perfect, but Elaine and John go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Elaine was so accommodating — it rained during our stay and she checked in to make sure we were okay the entire time. Cape Cod is stunning and I would come back just to stay in this cottage and hopefully meet Elaine and John! Thank you again for letting us book this beautiful cottage. Can't wait to come back again!

Wonderful cottage with all the modern amenities!
Elaine and John's home is comfortable, clean, well appointed, and beautiful. The cottage is stocked with everything you need. It felt like home from the moment we walked in. My husband, 2 young children, and I eased right into our stay. It is a 5 minute (or less) walk to the beach making it easy to go back if you forget anything or if you have little ones that nap. The bunk beds were a big hit with our son. You cannot beat the location of this house, situated within a 5 minute drive to downtown, restaurants, and tons of stores. We loved everything about our stay here. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer! Elaine is lovely and was very quick to respond to all my emails. We will certainly be back to stay again!

We had a fantastic time at this adorable cottage. We had everything we needed, communication with Elaine was great. Location can't be beat a short walk to Keyes Memorial which was a great beach, not crowded and the water perfect for swimming. Short walk to downtown Hyannis as well and a small market just a few steps away for any quick needs. We had a wonderful stay and couldn't be happier with our vacation ;) />08/27/2019 at 6:40 PM show more show less

Great base for a Cape Cod vacation
The place was perfect for our Cape Cod getaway. Centrally located so that you can see the whole Cape using it as a base. Walk to beach, Cape Cod league baseball and shops and places to eat. Perfect for our family of 4 but room for a few more if needed. Hosts greeted us warmly and gave great tips for the local area.

As a retired chef/professor, I enjoy local seafood and taught culinary arts and Vegetarian cuisine for 26 years at a local university. My husband puts his software engineer expertise to work anywhere we go. Staying at the Cape gives us a mini-vacation whenever we spend time here. Our favorite walks and sunsets are right around the corner. We have the most fun going shell fishing and sharing nature's bounty with family and friends. The peace and quiet are refreshing and give us a great perspective on what is really important; family, friends, time together, device-free time, nature, great food and meeting our guests!

What is special about this property?
We like our bungalow for its classic Cape Cod feel and connection to local history. The Norris Family was prominent in the building trades and summer rental business. We bought the bungalow 2007 to complement our smaller cottage next door which was my home for years. We rebuilt that from the ground up into a new Saltbox that is also available for rent. As our family grew, we needed more room for our grandchildren and friends. Hence, we were lucky enough to purchase this bungalow which has been a favorite family reunion spot. With its large deck, there is ample room to socialize, even for social distancing! Our outdoor shower is so refreshing and convenient, we use it far into the fall season as well. Bring your family and enjoy being together with your own cottage to return to in the evening for your own quiet time. Our winter sojourns here are as comfortable and relaxed as during the summer, so we hope you consider coming during off-season as well for a well-deserved break or to enjoy the holidays.




What is special about your town?
The first thing we do when we arrive is take the short 3-minute walk to Keyes Beach, aka Sea Street Beach. Kalmus and Veteran's Beach are 2 minutes by car down Gosnold Street. Craigville Beach is a 10 minute drive with more dynamic waves. We enjoy the peace and quiet, long walks and easy access to activities like fishing, island visits to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket and Provincetown. Hyannis is centrally located on the Cape and guests can explore East or West to each tip of the peninsula. The town is bustling with shops and restaurants with outdoor seating and curbside pickup. The Maritime Museum and the Kennedy Museum are within walking distance of each other. The antique shops and galleries showcase local talent. Fall colors are unique and the seaside changes daily. Travel out Route 6A in either direction and discover more historical residences and natural wonders.
