Description

Come see the Cape during the Fall season. The Bluefish are running,along with Stripers, bring an umbrella rig and go squidding. Bonito and False Albacore are here NOW!

Enjoy any season on the Cape. 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 too! Enjoy marked walking trails surrounding Poppy/New Seabury or child safe biking.

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

Our 3 bedroom cottage sleeps 6 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. 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. Beach chairs and a Nantucket buggy are available for renters use, and various outdoor toys. We have a tote full of Disney movies and board games for a rainy day. There is an outdoor shower for showering off after a fun day at the beach. Window A/C units available for the 3 bedrooms, plus individual room fans provided. High chair, booster seat,and Pack-n-Play available. Our outside shower is what we consider our half bath!

The community center is a haven for kids (playground and ball field) and is only 5 houses away. Vacationers get to use the outdoor facilities at the Community House for softball/basketball and children's playground, and all indoor activities, (during the summer season). On the other side of the neighborhood is the Popponesset Market Place, with casual dining, live entertainment, mini golf, bike rentals, shops, general store, Raw Bar, etc. And just across the street from there is the Popponesset Inn and Lure for waterfront casual or fine dining. There's also Dean's Pond within walking distance for freshwater fishing(small mouth bass).The New Seabury Marina offers kayak and paddle board rentals, a mile away. Just 3 miles away is Mashpee Commons. Here you'll find popular shops, restaurants, movie theater, pub,wine bar, Starbucks, bowling alley, etc.The Mashpee public library is adjacent to the Commons. Golf,island ferries, etc., are all close by. A public boat ramp(Ockway Bay) is one mile from our driveway. Ferries to the islands are 25 minutes away

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!

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

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!

Loved our second vacation here

We had the most amazing vacation AGAIN!!! Our second year was even better! We did 2 weeks this year instead of one! Norma and Bruce are the most wonderful friends that we met by vacationing in their beach house! Absolutely love them! This house is perfect -- clean, beautiful, bright, cheery! Not only did we love our time here, but we got to hang with our friends, family and our new great friends Norma & Bruce!

Go to Casa Vallarta in Falmouth on Tuesday if you haven't seen a mariachi band, love them. We went with Norma & Bruce & My silaw family! Best marguaritas/company! See you next year!!! Best vacations are made right in this house! Raw bar, lure, Popponesset Inn, the beaches, and friendly people! Can't wait til next year! Mike, Denise, Joey show more show less

Just what our family needed!!!

We just came home from a wonderful week at Bruce & Norma's Poppy Cottage!! From the moment we arrived, we could not have felt more welcomed. The home itself is bright, clean, and very welcoming. Backyard has two swings sets should you need them, a great fire pit with plenty of chairs surrounding it, perfect for low key nights disconnecting from technology and re-connecting with your family!

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised with thoughtful personalized welcome gifts put together by Norma, for the kids and adults alike. Shortly after we arrived, Bruce stopped by to make sure the house was what we were expecting and to see if we needed anything.

We even had the nice surprise of homemade & hand delivered fresh stuffed quahogs!! YUM!

Trash was picked up by Bruce a couple of times during the week and Norma stopped by to water the flowers, but not once did we ever feel like they were checking up on us, rather taking great care of their property.

We enjoyed our time immensely this week and will definitely be back again!!

Cutest cottage

We had such an amazing time at Bruce and Norma's cottage. We spent our evenings hosting relatives and spent most mornings drinking coffee and having breakfast in the backyard. The outdoor shower was amazing and the firepit was nice for s'mores! Bruce brought by stuffed quahogs and Norma brought over an anchor for our huge raft. SO incredibly hospitable. Bruce even took us on a tour of Popponesset Bay and harbor. It was beautiful and so thoughtful. The house was spacious and had A/C units for our very hot week. We will definitely be back! show more show less

Best family trip

My husband, 3 young girls, dog and I just finished up a fantastic week in Popponesset. This house had all we needed and much more. Plenty of space, all the daily necessities, very clean, and a great outdoor space for kids. The house is located in a great spot...quick walk to the Community Center, which has fun activities for kids daily, and a 5 minute walk to the beach...perfect for little ones. The hosts, Bruce and Norma, were so friendly and attentive and made our stay very enjoyable. We are already counting down the days to our next stay in Popponesset! show more show less

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
