Description

Description

Enjoy any season on the Cape. Mashpee has multiple shopping opportunities, craft fairs and holiday parades for this Holiday Season.
Popponesset is a wonderful family neighborhood where generations have ''summered.'' A 4 minute walk brings you to the private beach known as the 'Spit' (a sandy peninsula) with the Popponesset Bay on one side and the ocean(Nantucket Sound) on the other. There is a 6 car parking lot at the beach for fishermen, (not always observed). Parking at Sandy Beach is usually available during the off season to, Mid Sept-mid May). Enjoy marked walking/bike trails surrounding Poppy/New Seabury for family safe biking.

Enjoy Popponesset Beach on the Cape off season, warm days, cool nights, few tourists, warm swimming water and plenty of fishing, shopping and golf!

Our 3 bedroom cottage sleeps 7 people.One bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd bedroom has bunk beds (which many children who have stayed here have enjoyed) - and a mattress under the bottom bunk which can be pulled out for a lucky child, the 3rd bedroom has two twin beds, and has been newly decorated in a beachy style.
Enjoy our open floor plan in the living room/kitchen/dining room, with brand new hardwood floors - cathedral ceiling in kitchen/dining room, sky lights in living room and kitchen, which adds brightness to our already sunny home. Kitchen has all appliances needed for culinary delight.
Rear deck with ample seating and gas grille. Large outdoor shower and picnic table. Enjoy a fire in our outside fire pit.

The back yard has a swing set, gas grill, picnic table, boogie boards, outdoor fire pit, and horseshoe pit for outdoor enjoyment.

Golf: There are an abundance of great public access golf courses on this section of the Cape. New Seabury CC, Quashnet CC, Willobend CC. Falmouth CC , Paul Harney's CC all within a 10 minute drive The Spring or Fall seasons are a great time of year to golf on the Cape without the Summer crowd and still enjoy everything else the Cape has to offer.

Fishing: Not only can you take just a short walk to the beach for some surf casting, Blues and Stripers are coming back in abundance.Fresh water fishing at Deans Pond and Mashpee/Wakeby Lake for big mouth bass and Pickerel!

Fabulous beach cottage!

I spent a week at Bruce and Norma's fabulous beach cottage! The house is immaculate- well cared for and extremely comfortable. It’s the perfect house for a vacation week at Popponesset Beach! It’s a short walk to the beach - and a short walk to the marketplace - a perfect location. The house had everything you need for a family vacation- swing set; beach chairs; 2 grills; a great backyard!. Bruce and Norma are wonderful - responsive and accommodating. I enjoyed my week at the house, and highly recommend it! show more show less

Another Wonderful Time

Bruce & Norma did it again! We spent another glorious week at their " Poppy Cottage" and once again we were not disappointed!

We arrived to the home and were greeted by a lovely, personalized welcome package for the kids and ourselves. The kids were so excited to fill their new " treasure boxes." Norma truly takes a great deal of time and effort when putting these together, and it is such a nice touch!

The house was incredibly clean and ready for us to enjoy the week! And once again, we were treated to Bruce's homemade quahogs ( "Stuffies") they are so darn good!!

Bruce & Norma truly care about their guests and make every effort possible to ensure they have the best accommodations!! We cannot wait to return next year!

Last minute rental

First , I want to say how appreciative we were that Norma and Bruce were so accommodating and flexible! They came through for us at the last minute when our previous arrangements fell through! Such a warm and cozy place! Very clean, bright and cheery, and beautifully decorated! Beds were super comfortable. Well equipped with everything you need for day to day living! Thanks for everything! Would totally recommend renting this place to family and friends!! Regina on a girls weekend :)

End of summer vacation

Perfect end of summer vacation. Owners Bruce and Norma are the best, from the welcome package to the homemade stuffed quahogs, they even purchased a stand up paddle board and let us use it . Great house and short walk to a nice beach. Really nice neighborhood especially if you enjoy walking.

Popponesset

This is the 1st cottage that we have rented that had a welcome gift awaiting us: wine, taffy, Cape Cod postcards, a 2018 Cape Cod calendar, and all the makings for s'mores (which my grandchildren enjoyed) including the sticks. During the week, Bruce brought us homemade quahogs that were delicious. The cottage had a great layout, and anything you would needed (except towels) was provided: beach chairs and cart, high chair and pack and play, plenty of games, and a nice deck and back yard with a swing set. The beach was walking distance. show more show less

Thank you for the great review! We were unaware of one item you pointed out to us for repair, and will make some of the modifications that you suggested to enable our guests to enjoy our cottage more. Hope you come back for a future rental at our Poppy cottage.

Great Family Beach Vacation

We really enjoyed our family vacation at Bruce & Norma's. My wife and I, along with our 2 small children and dog, were very comfortable all week. The house was clean with plenty of room for everyone. There were even lots of children's books and toys.

It's just a short walk to either the beach or the spit, and if you haven't been to Popponesset Beach, it is a fantastic quiet, private family beach.

We were pleasantly surprised by the backyard. It is well landscaped with horseshoes and a fire pit, which we enjoyed every night after putting the kids to bed.

Highly recommended for a family vacation at the beach!

We are glad you had a great vacation, at our Poppy Beach cottage. We hope you consider staying with us in the future. Your kids will enjoy activities at the Community House as they get older.

I have been a Poppy resident since 1960. We bought our cottage in 1989, and I helped raise our family there, summers. My wife Norma and I started renting 4years ago, this being our fifth summer. As you can read from our reviews, many families have enjoyed our cottage each summer. We live close by, behind Deans Pond on Monahansett Rd. We take pride in our cottages appearance, both inside and out. It is a great location for the Community House activities, and going to the beach. Our beach of choice is at the ''Spit''. Inside the spit is Popponesset Bay, outside is Nantucket Sound. It is .3 mile away, an easy 4 minute walk. I am a retired Navy Captain, working on the Steamship Authority ferries as a chief engineer, my wife is a PCA/CNA and has her own cleaning service. We both work locally and have a wide network of connections. We are into boating, and if weather and schedule permits, we offer our guests a boat ride around Popponesset Bay/Island.

What is special about this property?
When we were looking for purchasing our cottage, we were impressed by the brightness of it. The knotty pine interior had been painted white. We renovated by adding 5 sky lights and cathedral ceilings. The kitchen, dining room, and living room offers an open floor plan, with new hardwood floors, leading onto our back deck. Last year, off of the deck, we built an outside fire pit, with many Adirondack chairs. EVERYONE has enjoyed making S'mores and enjoying a roaring fire. My neighbors are great, long time summer residents. The outside shower is oversized. The location is great for Community House activities and getting to the beach

What is special about your town?
Beach, Beach, Beach, with a safe-family friendly neighborhood. Great for walking and bike riding. 15 mph speed limit throughout Poppy Beach.
