We love the boathouse!!!

We spent a gorgeous week at the Boathouse with our two daughters--one is 3 years old and the other just 3 months. My husband and I had also stayed here with our older daughter when she was only 3 months, and we cherished the memories of looking out through the glass sliding doors at the breathtakingly beautiful Quissett Harbor. We were so happy to be back--just as lovely as we remembered! We were thrilled to discover that not only was the house clean and well-kept, as always, it contained a "secret" stash of toys (that my 3yo daughter promptly located within the first 5min of arrival), including both things for older children (a dollhouse, some art supplies, books, plus sand buckets/toys that Sue dropped by the house on the first day) AND several baby toys that my 3mo absolutely adored! Sue and Gary were very gracious hosts. They delivered a pack-n-play crib as well as a highchair to the house before our arrival so that we would not need to lug these things. We also greatly appreciated their flexibility in helping us arrange to stay an 8th night so that we could spend two full weekends on the Cape. show more show less

Lovely setting, perfectly equipped home

This house was just as advertised, small but well equipped and perfect for a family of four (with children ages 7 and 10) in a unique setting. The sunsets over The Knob were worth every penny. We rented paddle boards from a local company and went out daily from the boathouse, paddling over to the beach across the harbor to swim. The bedrooms were small but neat. The kitchen had everything you could want. Moreover, the owners were the perfect blend of friendly and helpful and leaving you to enjoy your vacation. The location was great, too - you could jog down sidewalks to the bike trail and it was a quick car trip to both Falmouth Center and Woods Hole. Mostly we loved the house just to sit on the deck and watch the boats in the harbor. show more show less

Kathryn-

Thanks so so much for this sterling and helpful review. We were delighted to meet your family and guests and to see how much everyone enjoyed the Boathouse-a hidden treasure. Glad you had such a lovely week-great combination of activities and relaxation too; so needed I'm sure prior to your move out of state.

Wishing you good luck with all and hoping to see you for more than a week next summer!

Peaceful Setting

We were very happy with our stay here. The Boathouse was clean and incredibly well-equipped with kitchen necessities, washer and dryer, linens, etc. A beautiful sunset spot every night. The owners were wonderful to interact with. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Great Cape Cod Getaway by the Bay

We had the pleasure of spending a week at this lovely and comfortable cottage the week of the 4th of July. We loved the location, the great view from the deck, and the proximity to a great little beach, which we really enjoyed, and to all the activities that this great little town of Falmouth has to offer.

The owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful The house is all that was advertised, and we certainly will be back in the future. We strongly recommend this lovely Boathouse, and hope that you do too. show more show less

Fabulous vacation house

The boathouse is the perfect summer vacation place for our family. We had a fabulous week - really loved paddle boarding and sailing in the harbor. We stored our two paddle boards at the lower level of the house, and it’s so convenient to put them in water. The boathouse has terrific water views. We enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the porch watching sail boats coming and leaving the harbor. The house is also very conveniently located (5 min to Woods Hole and Falmouth), and the kitchen is very well equipped. show more show less

Perfect Stay

We stayed one week in June 2016. It was an incredibly beautiful location, the house was in the best shape, everything worked well, nice details (like coffee and tea machine, infrared ceiling heat in bathroom, very comfortable bed and so on). The owners, Sue and Gary, were great, a lot of tips and perfect explanation about the house. We will come back again for the unbelievably nice and calm terrace to relax and refill our batteries.

Dear Fabers:

Thank you so much for your beautiful and timely review. It would be a pleasure having you return next summer, perhaps even for a longer time, to "restore your batteries!"

Best wishes for the months ahead.

Lovely!

We stayed at the Boathouse for a week in early summer, and everything was wonderful and as described. It is perfectly situated for walks, swims, kayaking, and bicycle trips, and we loved exploring the shops and restaurants of near-by Woods Hole and Falmouth. It was so relaxing to watch the constantly changing harbor from the deck, and we arranged a sailing lesson at the adjacent small marina. Sue and Gary were readily available with helpful suggestions and minor concerns. What a gem!

Sharing my thoughts

Out of all the houses we have rented worldwide, this is the best by far. It is well designed, comfortable, roomy and ideal for relaxing by yourselves or enjoying friends. It feels like your own home, and Sue and Gary have perfectly outfitted it to make you feel that way.

And for the view of the harbor, it is spectacular from the spacious deck or the living room at any time of the day or night. This is a real WINNER.

Perfect waterfront location

The boathouse is in a wonderful location and directly on the water. The harbor is very peaceful and the views are spectacular. The boathouse gets sun all afternoon, which is great. The sunsets are amazing. We rented bikes and kayaks for our vacation and used them every day. It was very easy to put kayaks in the water from where they were stored. The bike path is close by so within a few minutes you can be on it and either head to Woods Hole for lunch, shopping or just hanging out, or you can head in the other direction towards North Falmouth. Having "the knob" within walking distance was extra special. What a beautiful property and so nice to have beaches close by that you can walk or kayak to. My kids and I had a wonderful vacation. Thank you, Sue and Gary.

Magical cottage!

We had a nearby wedding, and decided to stay through the 4th of July week, so we rented this cottage. It is adorable, with a gorgeous view of the harbor. We loved access to the knob for the beach and running trails, as well as how nicely tucked away the property was. It was also just a few minute drive to downtown Woods Hole and not too far from Falmouth either. Loved our time!

The wonderful reviews really speak about us well. We are very caring about our wonderful Boathouse, waterfront property at Quissett Harbor. We very much like to know and to listen to our guests and their needs.

We bought this 3 A. property on which the Boathouse sits about 23 years ago and pride ourselves on its beauty, quiet location, and spectacular views. It is our hidden treasure for easy living whether our guests are bikers, windsurfers, boaters, runners, photographers, painters, or just there for a good rest and good dining both in Falmouth and nearby woods Hole. Our guests often have children who enjoy the water sports and other activites in the larger Cape setting. We are on the spot in the summer to enjoy our Main House and to oversee any needs of our guests. Come to the Boathouse and enjoy! Sue and Gary

What is special about this property?
If you read the reviews you'll get a good sense of how other people have enjoyed the Boathouse. It has a clean, open interior plan with plenty of room to park your bikes, surfboards, hang your bathing suits, and greet your own guests.

The ongoing view of sail boats from the deck is a moving, quietly enchanting scene, and the automatic awning over the deck allows for outdoor dining even when the sun is out in full swing or there are rain drops falling around you.

The amenities are complete including upgraded appliances-W/D, electric oven, coffeemaker, toaster,outdoor gas grill, even an iron and ironing board. Linens are provided unless you'd like to bring your own. There is a Queen sleep sofa for a 3d child or overnight guest as well. If you're working or staying around, we have the internet and Cable TV online for you.

What is special about your town?
Long before knowing Falmouth, we thought it was just another Cape town to pass through. But Falmouth has everything for shops, restaurants, even a fabulous hardware store, gift shops, art stores, and a super bike shop for rentals and repairs. The clothing stores go from Black Dog to top dog, plus three Super supermarkets -regular to gourmet, and a Marine Store for boating equipment. Catch summer theater at the College Light Opera (CLOC) and next to it enjoy beautiful, restored Highfield Hall and Gardens. Spend lunch with the llamas and farm animals while picking or eating organic fruits and vegetables at nearby Coonamessett Farm.

Falmouth is wooded and beachy at the same time. You can take a long walk or bike trip along the ocean on the 20 mile (round trip) bike path, or enjoy windsurfing at Racing Beach a mile away. You can easily bike to Woods Hole,Falmouth's sister town, home of the world class research center, MBL (Marine Biological Laboratories) with its wonderful small aquarium open to all.. There are occasional plays, film festival weeks, on the water restaurants, great coffee, sandwich, and ice cream shops there. For great books and DVDs, don't forget the well stocked libraries in Falmouth (the largest), West Falmouth, and Woods Hole.

Travel from Boston to Falmouth/Woods Hole is an easy 1 1/2 hours from Boston, but save more time in peak hours. Enjoy your stay!
