My spouse and I have been renting this cottage for a week in September for the last couple of years, since we adopted our first dog. Actually, we signed our agreement when we had one dog, but by the time September rolled around, we had two. This spring, we were missing the Cape and knew we couldn't wait until September to head back. We checked the availability and "our" house was available for the week we wanted. We had gotten an email from the owner telling us about the new kitchen and the new grill, but the reality of the kitchen was far more beautiful than the pictures could express. We were thrilled that our girls remembered the house and our regular walks around the pond and couldn't wait to stretch their legs playing chase in the backyard as soon as we unpacked. The humans in the family are counting the days until September when we can go back to what feels like our Cape home. The house is perfectly situated. It's close to Long Pong, providing nice walks for two and four legged family members. If you want to go to the beach, you can walk or drive to the South Yarmouth Beaches, and you can get in the car and easily get to any of the other fine beaches the Cape has to offer. If you want to cook (and the new gas grill is fabulous), the house is very close to several big grocery stores. If you want to go out to eat, the house is within driving distance of many of the Cape's restaurants - from picnic table casual to white tablecloth fancy. And one more important thing to note about this house is that it's within an easy walk of the Cape Cod Creamery, to me, the best ice cream on the Cape (although I know everyone who has ever visited the Cape had THEIR favorite ice cream place). Bottom line, if you're looking for a great escape to the Cape, be sure to check out this house. From the moment you walk in, it really does feel like home.
It was so nice of you to "surprise" me with a Spring visit!!! It's one of my favorite times on the Cape, beautiful blooms, warm days & cool evenings, and no crowds!!! Looking forward to having you back again in September!!!
