Description

Description

Enjoy the peace and quiet of a private, secluded island to rest, relax and restore your spirit. From the large deck and many widows, you can enjoy stunning water views. Spend your time watching the birds soar above the house, sailboats on the bay and ships transiting the Cape Cod Canal. The wind off of the water rushes through the trees, offering a refreshing and invigorating salt air that means your vacation has begun.

Accessible by a small bridge, the house is on a point and the last on the road and a world away from the mainland. With comfortable accommodations for 10 people, you and your family can spend your time exploring the shoreline by foot or kayak, swimming or fishing from the beaches and two docks. A private path in our yard leads to a spit of land that allows you to easily explore the adjacent Little Tobey Island at low tide. You are welcome to use our Old Towne 2 person kayak stored at the docks. Bring your own motor or sail boat. There is a nearby public boat ramp, fueling dock and mooring bouy available (for boats up to 28 feet) so you can sail, fish or waterski. After rinsing off in the enclosed outdoor shower, you can return to the house for a game of ladderball, whiffleball or a round of tennis on the island’s clay court.

Filled with light, all of the rooms have large windows, most with great views of Buzzards Bay. The four bedroom, two bath home is fully air conditioned and sleeps ten comfortably. The two upstairs bedrooms have queen size beds and the bedrooms downstairs have two and three single beds respectively. A full size futon is available in the family room and the house is equipped with a portacrib, high chair, nice walking stroller and backpack for carrying your young one. With two large living areas, you and your family can spend time all together or spread out. The downstairs offers a flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, sofas and chairs.

With generous seating, including an outdoor dining table, chairs and a 24 foot bench, the elevated deck easily accommodates a crowd. Enjoy a grilled meal using either the gas or charcoal grill. The lawn offers a beautiful, shaded sitting area overlooking the water with more chairs and chaise lounges plus, there is ample room for whiffle ball, ladderball, badminton or croquet.

In addition to beaches on Tobey Island, it is an easy walk to a free, public sandy beach nearby at Phinney’s Harbor. Parking is limited to town residents but there is plenty of free parking along Shore Road. Phinneys Harbor provides a fueling dock and is home to Bourne Community Boating which offers sailing school and opportunities to children and adults.

Monument Beach, one mile away, has a post office, ice cream shop, bakery, pizza parlor and a paddlers shop with kayak and paddle board rentals. Within three miles you can find the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, two small grocery stores, the Cape Cod Canal bike path and visitor center, the Bourne Public Library, the carousel at the Aptucxet Trading Post Museum, hardware, seafood and liquor stores, and numerous restaurants including favorites such as the Lobster Trap and Chart Room. Falmouth, Woods Hole, Hyannis and Mashpee are all within a half an hour. If you wish to go further afield, the Whaling Museum in New Bedford is excellent as are the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth and Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

Tobey Island is quiet and secluded. Easy to reach and only 70 miles from Boston and a quick 4 miles from the Bourne Bridge, it is a world away from mini golf, tee shirt shops and traffic.

Come to Tobey Island and discover its hidden secrets.

Peaceful Waterfront Home

We had a wonderful one-week stay at this cozy waterfront home on a private island setting. We enjoyed the large deck, gas grill, and outdoor shower, which were a welcome change from our daily condominium living. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes a modern dishwasher. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable—we didn't try the others. At low tide, you can walk along a spit directly behind the house which connects to a small island. It's a pleasant walk but wear sturdy shoes (not flip flops) because it's rocky and full of shells.

Nearby, we visited Four Ponds Conservation Area and Lawrence Island. Four Ponds is only 2.5 miles away and has a network of well-maintained trails and at least one spring-fed pond. At Lawrence Island, you can take a scenic walk around the perimeter, but there's no shade and at high tide you will be sloshing around in ankle deep water.

The hosts are very accommodating. We would stay here again.

Owner Response:

We were delighted to have Rob and his wife stay at our house on Tobey Island. They were excellent guests and we would be pleased to have them stay in the future. Due to a mis-communication with our house cleaner, the house was not prepared to our standards prior to their arrival. Rest assured that this was a one time incident and future tenants will enjoy a beautiful setting, a restful and relaxing time on the island and a well cleaned home.

My parents built this home in 1972 and I have been here every summer of my life. In 2018; my husband and I became the sole owners and we have been busy making it top notch. The home, the island and area are a slice of heaven. We are excited to share it with you!

What is special about this property?
There are so many things that make this home special. When you walk in the door, the open floor plan, high stained pine ceilings, ample windows and large deck instantly relax you. It's so quiet and peaceful. When it's time for a swim, you just walk down to the dock and jump right in. If you want a walk, follow the roads and paths around the island or explore the shoreline and find shells and beach glass. On a practical note, the house is 10 minutes away from the Bourne Bridge. It's a compete escape from mainland madness.

What is special about your town?
Although Monument Beach and Bourne are easier to navigate and less impacted by tourism than the rest of the Cape, we still have much to do. We enjoy the Cape Cod Canal bike path, the Aptuxcet trading post, the Sandwich Glass Museum, the golf courses and Bourne Braves baseball. There is plenty to do in the area and Falmouth, Mashpee and Woods Hole are a quick drive to reach. The Monument Beach public beach is next to the bridge getting to the island and the Falmouth beaches are also close by.
