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
