Description

August 23- 30th JUST OPENED! Please keep us in mind for October; the Cape is one of the best places ever for a New England Getaway. You may also book for 6 nights instead of 7 and 13 nights instead of 14. When possible, you may have a flexible check in and/or check out time.


Need to relax????? Love the Cape no matter what the season? Stone’s Throw is located on the Mid Cape a mile west of 6A and conveniently located to all the Cape has to offer. Come sit upon the deck with its water view of Follins Pond and enjoy the soft sea breezes and beautifully starred night skies.

Stones Throw, located on a quiet residential street, just 2 houses up the hill from Follins Pond, a large salt water lake, is the perfect getaway.. Follins Pond is not actually a pond at all but a 273 acre body of water at the end of the Bass River, which leads to the Atlantic Ocean.

Should you own a boat, you may bring it! There are 2 public boat ramps a 1/2 mile from the cottage. You may also launch your kayaks from the small neighborhood beach 6 houses down the street. There is ample parking with a drive way in the back as well as a semi-circular drive in the front.

This cottage will invite you to relax, and to put your feet up on a very comfortable leather sectional and just sit back. The fireplace, with its woodstove insert, is perfect for cool offseason nights. Add a ceiling fan, window AC, a 48 inch HD Smart TV with cable, a Blu Ray player.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of pots and pans from cake and muffin to lobster should you chose to dine in or enjoy a meal on the deck, cooked upon a Weber gas grill. Unfortunately this year, other than salt and pepper, will not be offered .

The entire wall of sliding doors in the dining room and living room leads to the enclosed gated deck & overlooks the salt water lake. Opening the blinds in the morning is a wonderful way to begin the day.

The 2 bedrooms on the main floor have queen beds, window AC's, and ceiling fans. The master also has a small wall mounted flat screen TV. The third bonus room downstairs has two twin beds, and a bunk bed with a double bed base. and a 46 inch LED flat screen TV and Blu Ray player. Perfect for the kids! You will also find a bathroom with shower and a laundry room. A Pack N Play and 2 strollers are located in the master bedroom upstairs on the main floor.

Outside there is an enclosed outdoor hot water shower, perfect for sandy children after the beach. And speaking of the beach, there is a small neighborhood beach about 6 houses from the backyard. There are also beach chairs, sand toys, beach wagon and umbrella in the garage. All items will be disinfected in between bookings.

Stone’s Throw is centrally located on the Mid Cape: convenient to some of the finest restaurants on the Cape, as well as golf courses, grocery stores, (1 mile to Peterson's Market, and approximately 3 miles to Stop and Shop in Patriot Center ) and 1 mile to historic 6A highway, whale watcher trips (15 minutes to Barnstable Harbor), transportation to the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket (from Hyannis and Brewster) . You are a little over 3 miles from beautiful Mayflower Beach with its intriguing tidal pools, and 15 minutes away from Rte 28 and West Dennis Beach. Cape Cod Bike trail, 22 miles of paved bike paths through 6 towns can be accessed just past Barbara's Bike Rentals, located near Patriots Square.

Please check my calendar!!!! There is limited availability due to the high percentage of returning guests. September is the best kept secret on the Cape!

Home away from home

Our family can't say enough about this home and its owner, Sandy. Our son came home from deployment and we need time away as a family...I knew the perfect place to go....our home away from home! I contacted Sandy, we caught up on life and she booked our weekend. I get excited each time we go to see what new things Sandy has done...a new walkway, stone wall, furniture! Even though it was December, our hearts are warmed by this cozy, beachy cottage with a beautiful view that always welcomes us. It's wonderful waking up to the smell of coffee as I open the blinds all the way to take in the view. Her home is nicely decorated, has everything a home needs to cook a meal and even a washer and dryer on the lower level. Sandy's cottage is very close to shops, Stop & Shop, Dunkin Donuts, restaurants and gas. Our new favorite breakfast spot is Grumpys and there's great pizza at Tap City Grill in Hyannis. A weekend here is always fun, relaxing and filled with new memories as we always look forward to the next time. show more show less

Dear Tammy, it has been a pleasure to have you and your family at the cottage and have certainly enjoyed getting to know you over the years. I, too, enjoy opening the blinds in the morning. Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. You are always welcome.

Many great vacations here

If you're looking for a special summer rental, Stones Throw is the best. The main floor features a spacious living room with a full wall of sliders opening to a deck that's perfect for relaxing or star gazing. You'll enjoy the well equipped kitchen with plenty of counter space. Across from the beautifully tiled bathroom, both bedrooms offer spacious closets and queen beds. The walk-out lower level sleeps five guests comfortably and features a 2nd bathroom, a laundry area, and a door to the garage. This home is exceptionally well maintained and the owner is a delight! My husband and I been vacationing on Cape Cod for the past 15 summers with 13 at Stones Throw. We enjoy the quiet setting along with the convenience to restaurants, shopping, and highways. Stones Throw is the Best! show more show less

First time at Follins Pond

We have relocated to the Atlanta area and we have used "we need a vacation" for Cape Cod vacations and have never been disappointed. We rented in Harwich for several years but the owner is retiring and the home is no longer available. This home was perfect for all of our family to gather (we are coming from Dallas, Atlanta and MA!). We loved the sliders to the deck and would spend mornings having coffee and enjoying Cape Cod air! Sandra had lots of beach toys for our grandsons and beach chairs for extra guests. The home was clean and well maintained. We loved the speakers on the stereo that allowed us to listen to Cape Classical 107.5! The TV/audio system was easy to use and allowed us to find Netflix for shows for our little grandsons. We loved having the ceiling fans and room air conditioners that made sleeping comfortable.

Sandra also has a decently stocked kitchen that makes dinner time easy. She is constantly upgrading this home every year and the lawn and hydrangeas are quintessential Cape Cod! We are looking forward to returning next year! We would recommend this home!

It is perfectly located with a short drive the great East Dennis beaches and the Cape Cod Rail Trail.

Thank you, Chris, for the wonderful review and, yes, there will be a new gas grill ffor summer 2019. Sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee in the morning is also my favorite way start the morning. You were wonderful guests! I have enjoyed our emails and you and your family are always welcome at the cottage.

Beautiful Cottage and Location!

My sister and I stayed at Stone's Throw for one week in October. This is a very nice cottage! Very clean and comfy! Sandy (owner) has decorated each room with very cute, beach themed items. We used the 2 bedrooms upstairs and both beds were very comfortable. We felt so at home here. It was nice having the washer and dryer and second bathroom downstairs. Downstairs there are also bunk beds and two twin beds in a very large room that would be perfect for families with children or several couples staying together. The living/dining area had a whole wall of sliding glass doors with screens that were absolutely wonderful to open while we stayed there.

We had picture perfect weather to sit out on the deck and enjoy a glass of wine and the beautiful weather. The sunsets in the evening over Follins Pond at the end of the street were beautiful. The kitchen is very well equipped with cooking utensils, pots/pans, dishes etc. Sandy also has a very nice variety of spices, sugar, etc. There is off-street parking right in front of the house which was very handy.

I am very glad that we chose Stones Throw for our first Cape Cod vacation! I would definitely rent again!! Thanks again, Sandy, for sharing your wonderful home with us!!!!

Lisa, thank you so much for the review. I also love opening the blinds in the morning to greet the day, as well as being able to "close up" the cottage for privacy. I agree that off season sunsets are truly more beautiful. Thank you both for taking such good care of my cottage. You will always be welcome!

I grew up in Massachusetts, and the Cape has become a part of me. my family and loved ones. The cottage was purchased in 2013; and is a work in progress, often with helpful suggestions from some pretty wonderful guests.

What is special about this property?
The greatest assets are the view from the deck, the sea breeze, and incredibly gorgeous starred skies. It's inviting, and a great place for children or not. I love being greeted by the waterview when I drive down my street. This little house nvites you to relax when you walk in the front door

What is special about your town?
Since Yarmouth Port is centrally located, jaunts to anywhere on the Cape, to include day trips to the islands are possible. It's my favorite part of the Cape because it does not feel ''touristy'' Although I have practically grown up on the Cape, Yarmouth Port is relatively new to me, and believe it or not, I have learned much from my guests.
