We have had this house on the Cape for over 6 years, and we love it! We have three children who are now grown, but still love to come back to enjoy the area. There is much to do for all ages!
What is special about this property?
We're typically fully booked for the summers and our renters are always happy with the place and amenities. One comment we hear often is how clean the place is. With all hardwood floors and an outdoor shower, it's easy to keep the sand and dirt out. And with skylights,lots of windows and beachy colors, it's bright and cheery.
The beach is just a 10 minute walk or a 4-5 minute bike ride!
There are games for the children (and adults) to play on the side yard- ladder ball and croquet to name a few, ride the bikes down through the neighborhood or take the kayaks out on the creek.
And on rainy days(of which hopefully you don't have many!), the cottage has a large living room and a front room so there is plenty of space to spread out. You can play games at the dining room table or the living room checkers table, watch TV or videos in the living room or enjoy some quiet time and read on the futon in the front room.
The house is surrounded on two sides by conservation area, and tall trees between you and the next closest neighbor giving you lots of privacy. And, the conservation area has some really nice trails to explore.
Finally-it's not far over the bridge, so while everyone else is still traveling, you're already settled and enjoying the beach or exploring the area!
What is special about your town?
There is so much to do in the area as well as the rest of the Cape, you'll wish you could stay longer. The beauty of this place is, with the beach, Scorton Creek and the marsh so close, there is plenty to do without going far. And yet, if you wish to check out everything else on the Cape, you have a great starting place. The cottage has a binder in the front room with all the local amenities as well as others farther down Cape.
Although the cottage is away from the busier downtown, you are only a 10 minute drive from the local stores- Stop & Shop, CVS, Hardware Store, banks, beauty salons, liquor store, the Deli, quite a few good restaurants and some souvenir shops. And, of course- only 10 minutes away from the best ice cream on the Cape at Ice Cream Sandwich, across from the Stop & Shop Plaza.
If you just need a paper or milk you can walk to the end of the street to the small convenience store, or if you're hungry for breakfast but don't want to cook, walk to the end of the street for breakfast at the 6A Cafe or just want to browse, stop at Titcomb's Bookstore at the end of the street.
And Heritage Park with great gardens, museums (including an antique cars museum) and the all new Adventure Park is a 15 minute drive and well worth the money!
You can choose to just relax, but if you want to explore, you will never be bored!
