We stayed at Mariellen's Mayflower cottage the last week in July, 2016. A week that was miserably hot back in Boston. The cottage's location on a bluff above Cape Cod bay meant that breezes kept the cottage cool. My partner and I had a great week, relaxing with our two dogs, taking them for walks on the bay when the tide was low, and on the trail through the woods behind the cottage when the tide was high. The location is quiet and very private-feeling, but close to Provincetown and the National Seashore and everything else P'town has to offer. A car is recommended, but the shuttle to Provincetown stops right down the steps from the cottage, so you can get into town easily that way as well. The cottage has a funky and charming design aesthetic, and is very comfortable. Filled with books of all kinds, so you won't need to bring your own trashy summer reading. The kitchen is well equipped for any type of cooking you might want to do. Just be sure to put your fresh food in the fridge, or ants may discover it. The house has a tv, cable access, a DVD player, and wifi, so if you MUST bring work, you can stay connected. Cell phone reception is pretty good from most spots in the house as well. The outdoor patio is lovely, and the grill is excellent. The hot and cold outdoor shower is really a treat. The owner Mariellen is very helpful but also unobtrusive. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with our stay at Mayflower Cottage. Highly recommended!
