Description

CHRISTMAS ON THE CAPE!!! The holiday season on the Cape is full of homespun charm and simplicity for children of all ages. Please view Stone's Throw FB page ( Stones Throw from Follins Pond) for information about the Polar Express leaving from Hyannis and Santa's arrival by boat in several locations and by helicopter from Patriots Square, and 5 recommended events you do not want to miss.



Come to the Cape without the crowds, the traffic, and the beach fees. The Cape has much to offer off season beyond the beach especially if you are considering the holidays. Be aware that anything you enjoy doing at the Cape during the summer can be done in September. ( A mere 6 degree difference from the average August temperature.)

Stones Throw with its waterview of Follins Pond, a 273 acre body of salt water, is the perfect getaway. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, it invites you to relax, no matter the season. Beautiful bayside beaches are 3 miles from the cottage. Off season means no parking fees - no crowds - no better way to fall in love with old Cape Cod than to walk the beaches or to kayak Follins Pond.

If you own a boat, you may bring it! You are welcome to park it in the driveway behind the cottage or in the garage. Follins Pond is npot just a pond: it is a 273 acre body of water connecting to the Bass River leading to the Atlantic Ocean. There are 2 public boat ramps 1/2 mile away. If you have a kayak, bring it! You can launch it from the neighborhood beach 6-7 houses from the backyard.

Come sit upon the deck in the morning with a good book, and a cup of coffee and someone special. Enjoy the water view, sea breezes, and the peace of an incredibly beautiful blanket of stars over the cottage. Sunsets are truly the most beautiful off season.

The kitchen is fully equipped for coffee in the morning, with sweeteners and creamer in the cabinet. You will find multiple spices and a variety of pots and pans, from cake to lobster.

Linens and towels are also provided. (Guests are responsible for laundering them.)

The comfortable and cozy living room invites you to put your feet up on the couch and relax. There is a fireplace with wood stove insert, a 48 inch HD TV / with Cable & Blu Ray Player. WiFi and full cable is available April 1st until Nov 1st. The entire wall of sliding doors in the dining room and living room leads to the enclosed gated deck & overlooks the salt water lake.

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! There is also a Pack N Play in the master bedroom closet and 2 strollers for the little ones.

The downstairs bathroom, (with a shower and built-in seat) also accommodates the washer and dryer.

There is an enclosed outdoor hot water shower, perfect for sandy children after the beach. And speaking of the beach, there are beach chairs, sand toys, beach wagon and umbrella in the garage. Beach bag and towels are in the linen closet on the main floor.

The circular driveway in front of house provides easy access. Additional parking is in the rear of house, which is on a dead end street. If you walk out to the backyard, you are 6-7 houses from a small neighborhood beach, just the right size for small children who can't take a full day at the beach or for launching your kayak to explore the pond and Bass River.

Stones Throw is centrally located on the Mid Cape: convenient to excellent restaurants, golf courses, grocery stores,(1 mile to Peterson's Market, and approximately 3 miles to Stop and Shop in Patriot Center ) and to historic 6A highway, whale watcher trips (15 to Barnstable Harbor) and to beautiful bayside beaches.

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.
