Description

Description

''The Shore Cottage'' lives up to its name. Located only feet from the water, this early 20th century cottage provides spectacular views, a private beach (shared with only two other houses), and plenty of space to relax and play. The expansive lawn has ample space for enjoying the view as well as croquet, frisbee, badminton or a game of catch. A secluded garden on a fresh water pond is a great retreat for windy days. Just steps from the Martha’s Vineyard ferry and the shops, restaurants and institutions of Woods Hole “downtown,” it is separated from all the bustle of town by a tall fence that makes them seem miles away.

The house was designed by a Prairie School architect as a “Cape Cod cottage” for the caretaker of a larger estate, and it has been in the same family since it was built in 1914. A loving restoration in 2003 brought it up to date and yet retained its feel as an early 20th century cottage. The first floor bedroom still contains beds designed by the architect. The spacious living room has a working fireplace for cool spring or fall evenings, while the sun porch is the perfect location for watching sunsets. With one of the best views in town, the dining room almost feels like it is on a boat (only without the rocking). With the same ocean panorama to enjoy as you work, cooking and washing dishes in this kitchen is a pleasure.

Woods Hole

This is a very special property! The gorgeous views even on rainy days make for a very relaxing vacation. Being able to walk to Woods Hole center is a big plus. The ferries coming and going are a pleasure to watch, creating a fun energy! The owner Ellen was very accommodating and attentive to our needs. My family and I love Shore Cottage!!

Heavenly Home In Woods Hole

Shore cottage is a perfect way to spend a vacation in Woods Hole. We’ve been there three different Septembers, with our family (young adult children) and other visitors. The house can accommodate a large group. Everyone finds it enchanting. Extremely scenic and lovely, with Harbor views and a back garden with a pond. The water views themselves are outstanding and you can see the ferry pulling in and out of its dock, from early in the morning until late in the evening. We found the regular passage of the ferry relaxing. The well equipped kitchen is lovely. We cooked and baked for our whole group, and the dining room is perfect for 10 people.

There’s a nice bedroom on the second floor, but all the bedrooms are fine. On the first floor there is a bedroom and bathroom which is very convenient for those that have difficulty navigating the stairs to the upstairs bedrooms.

All the shops and restaurants in Woods Hole are very accessible through a hidden gate that leads into the ferry parking lot. Even though there is easy access to the town this way, the house feels very private. Also easy access to The Shining Sea bike path.

Simply Perfect!

We had such an amazing week at Shore Cottage. As soon as we pulled down the driveway, all of our stress melted away. The view was just beautiful! We literally parked the car and didn't use it again until we went to a Falmouth Summer Baseball game. Shore Cottage is an amazing spot for doing just about everything.... We biked on the scenic road to the Nobska Lighthouse and had a wonderful tour of the inside and we biked the entire Shining Sea Bike Path and had a delicious lunch in Falmouth Village on our way back. We walked through the garden gate into Woods Hole for several delicious dinners, our favorite being at WaterStreet Kitchen and had more than one ice cream cone at Jimmy's. We also saw the sundial given by Charles Crane to the town, visited the Aquarium and walked into many lovely shops. Woods Hole is a treasure!!

However, with all the town has to offer, Shore Cottage itself is a gem!! One of our favorite activities was sitting on the beach, watching the ferries come and go and simply relaxing. We ate breakfast and lunch outside and had many visits from a family of ducks. It was really special watching them come and go every day, up from the beach and waddle over to the pond and back again. This house is truly spectacular, from the picturesque dining room window, comfortable bedrooms and well equipped kitchen to the private beach and easy town access. I hope we are able to visit again some day!!

Wonderful way to enjoy Woods Hole

We had a wonderful stay as always. The location and views could not be better. The house was clean and welcoming, and there are plenty of things to do for the kids even when it rained. We appreciated the provisions of cooking essentials that help us get our stay started. Can't wait to come back.

A relaxing week in an incredible location

We've been coming to Wood's Hole for 30 years. We love its low key downtown, swimming at Nobska Beach, and gazing at the lighthouse. This year we were delighted to find the shore cottage. Located just a short distance from the ferry terminal and town, it is situated in such a way that when sitting in its sea rooms or in the Adirondack chairs in the yard, one is aware only of the sea lapping at your feet, the ocean breezes wafting through the house, and the ferries gliding out toward Martha's Vineyard (yes, there is a ship's whistle with each departure but that adds to the ambiance). To get to the ferry or to downtown restaurants is less than a five minute walk.

The house itself is spacious, with a large modern kitchen, a dining room overlooking the harbor, a sea room, a living room stocked with games and a TV (which we never even turned on). The sunsets filled the entire house with a red/orange glow. There are bedrooms on three floors, by our count you could comfortably sleep 12. One great aspect of this rental is that the owners supply all the incidentals in the kitchen - coffee filters, condiments, sugar, spices, aluminum foil as well as a full range of pots, pans, coffeemakers, microwaves, a great gas stove, both gas and charcoal grills with even the charcoal briquettes supplied. This allows once to shop and cook just as you would at home - buy the fresh ingredients without worrying about having to run out to buy something that you didn't think of but was essential (cooking oil or olive oil for instance). This really made cooking family meals easy and allowed us to eat out in the back yard, either in the morning light or at sunset. Really a fantastic rental, the owner was very attentive and made sure we had access to help if it was needed. I'm already asking to sign us up for next year!

When can we come back?!?!

We cannot recommend this magical house highly enough! We were a group of friends with many young kids who had the time of their lives running around the yard, playing on our own private beach, literally dancing under the stars, carving pumpkins, and playing with the house's many toys. Not to mention watching all the ferries and other boats coming and going. And visiting the local aquarium. Such a special, special place.

This was our second stay and certainly not our last! The house was clean, well-equipped, spacious yet cozy. My only reservation about recommending it to everyone is fear of creating competition for its availability! Thanks for being a great host and sharing your extraordinary home. show more show less

A beautifully kept and historic home

Our family absolutely loves this home. The house is graciously maintained. It is a stone's throw from the cute town of Woods Hole and has a secret garden entrance to the Martha's Vineyard ferry.

Splendid September Stay

Our family and friends gathered at the Shore Cottage in Sept 2013 for an amazing week on the water. The house is charming and clearly loved and very well cared for. It was a welcoming place for our loved ones to gather and play on the lawn, on the beach, and in the water. It's lovely to be able to stroll around Woods Hole and dash over to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We loved watching the ferries crisscross in front of the house. Highly recommended!
