Description

Description

***Summer 2023 dates have not yet been released. Availability coming soon.***

***We now offer 3 NIGHT STAYS in May and June with flexible arrival and departure times! You select the arrival and departure dates, and we'll extend your visit with early check-in and late check-out whenever possible. We have high speed internet, so work remotely if you must. Perfect for 1-5 guests. We love all of the seasons, but you should know that Spring is a very special time to visit Cape Cod.***

This expanded and newly updated cottage is filled with sunlight. It's a one-level home with a wonderful mix of classic-cottage and contemporary style. Situated in a family-friendly, quiet area of town, this is a cottage filled with love.

The cottage is just 6/10 mile to South Middle Beach and 7/10 mile to Smuggler's Beach and Windmill Beach. You may enjoy the quiet 10-15 minute walk to the beach, or it’s just a quick 3 minute drive. The Skipper Chowder House is just one mile away. The cottage is only a few blocks from Great Island Bakery for baked goods, and the most incredible gelato shop for your evening walks.

The entry of the cottage maintains a vintage vibe. This is where you’ll find a bright dining area and a nap-nook with a comfortable, full-sized futon for relaxing. The dining table doubles as a place for a puzzle or an epic game of scrabble, since you’ll likely be enjoying many meals at the table in the backyard or at local restaurants.

The front of the cottage is also where you’ll find the bunk room and the bathroom. The bunk room has a twin over full-sized bunk bed, so you can choose the best sleeping arrangement for your needs. The room is decorated in pale grey and white with pops of color that are appealing to guests of all ages.

The kitchen is in the center of the cottage and includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer. It is fully stocked with dishes, flatware, pots, pans, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot and more. The kitchen serves as the hub of the cottage, and is the connection between the vintage cottage and the new addition.

The addition to the cottage is where you’ll find the large living/family room and the primary bedroom. The living room boasts a very comfortable, large sectional sofa, sizable coffee table for puzzles and games, and a 55” Roku television with streaming capability and high-speed internet. This room is quite spacious and has 2 skylights and a ceiling fan! We also provide plenty of games for you to enjoy throughout your stay.

The primary bedroom provides a serene space with a comfortable queen-sized mattress and plenty of space to get ready for a day at the beach or an evening out.

The backyard is set up to barbecue with a propane gas Weber grill, new outdoor dining table, and a propane gas fire table for nighttime enjoyment. Don’t forget to relax and grab a nap on the comfy lounge chairs before enjoying a wonderful outdoor shower! The outdoor shower, with both hot and cold water, tends to be the most popular method of bathing when staying at the cottage. There’s nothing better after a day at the beach than the tradition of an outdoor shower to wash the sand away.

The use of Turkish cotton beach towels, beach chairs, and beach cart are provided for your convenience. If you’re up for exploring, it’s fun to purchase a weekly beach badge to experience all of the wonderful beaches that Yarmouth has to offer.

There are lots of activities and incredible restaurants nearby. We even provide a guide with some suggestions to get you started. The mid-Cape location is perfect for exploring the Cape.

A crushed shell driveway will welcome you, and there is parking for 2 cars.

*We have high speed internet, so work remotely if you must.
*There is no bathtub in the bathroom; however, the shower is quite nice. And, of course, there's the outdoor shower!
*Please note that the ladder to the top bunkbed is a tight squeeze for most adults.
*Linens and bath towels are not provided.
*Turkish beach towels are provided. Wait until you try them!
*Backpack beach chairs, beach cart, small cooler, and beach toys are provided.
*Sorry, no pets. We keep a dander-free home for those with allergies.

- Only a 3-night minimum in September and October! Shhhh...It's the BEST time of year on Cape Cod.

    The Big Little Cottage

    Staying a the BLC was a joy for us. Our first time but it won't be our last. Very engaging, comfortable, all the amenities, close to everything, felt instantly relaxed. When you go away you still want that feeling of being home and that was the feeling that we had staying there. (The only difference is you're living in Cape Cod) This a a true gem to add to anyones repertoire of nice places to stay and it is definitely at the top our list!!!!

    Love the BLC! show more show less

    Adorable delight

    This cottage was adorable! It was clean and inviting with plenty of room for 2 couples. Nice, quiet neighborhood, Close to beaches and to the hubbub of Rt. 28. Nice outdoor area with an outdoor shower included. Would definitely recommend this house.

    Perfect accommodations for a beach vacation!

    We stayed at the Big Little Cottage for the second time in two summers-- and this time for three weeks! This was the ideal amount of time to completely relax and develop a mindless routine (who wants to strategize too much during vacation)? We started almost every morning with coffee at the little windmill beach, a 20-minute walk (at most) from the cottage. The Family Room is large enough to do a Peloton yoga class for two or three, and our hosts' Roku access and large TV screen made this possible. A great starting point for my husband's daily bike rides. Most afternoons, we would stroll to the beach, with a wagon filled with all beach necessities (also provided by our hosts) trailing behind us. This beach is also a pleasant 15-20 minute walk. The cottage is located mid-Cape, so access to the far reaches of the Cape, with dune tours and great fresh seafood at Chatham Pier are all within reach. It turns out that Jackie is not only a great host but a foodie, too-- and she provided great insider tips as to where and what to eat! The house itself has been refreshed, is air-conditioned and very clean. It is stocked with everything you'll need, but without a lot of complicated excess. Definitely a simple, and therefore wonderful, beach respite-- the perfect anecdote to a busy work life. We would love to go again! show more show less

    Thanks for another thoughtful review. We're so glad that you were able to relax and re-charge. Morning coffee on Windmill Beach is my favorite way to start the day. And I'm glad you enjoyed some of our favorite restaurants. It was a pleasure to host you for a second season. We hope you'll return for a third season next year.

    Feels Like Home

    What a lovely place for a small family getaway. The house was so clean. It was not cluttered at all and everything felt on the new side. The outdoor shower was great so as to not track in sand. The area is quiet yet convenient to the main road. The beach within walking distance was perfect, brown sugar sand, small waves and warm water. It really didn't even get crowded. We were very happy with our trip. Just a heads up though, 2nd bedroom bunk beds are a tight squeeze and kind of noisy. The kids kept each other up with the creaking. Lol! It was nice to have our room on the other side of the house. The living room was light and spacious. The table outside was perfect for dinners Al fresco. Loved the Turkish towels. show more show less

    So cute, clean and homey!! HIGHLY recommend!

    The big little cottage far exceeded our expectations! The smiles never left our faces upon arriving and walking in the front door. It was so clean, so neat and the decor was colorful, beautiful and so welcoming! There is so much space, we especially loved the big room in the back in the evenings to unwind and watch tv or listen to music/play games. The back bedroom is so cozy, and the bed was very comfortable! We loved all the hanging space and drawers for clothes. Outdoor shower was perfect! (A cape cod must). The kitchen is equipped with everything you may need! Location is wonderful, so close to the beach and all the local favorites.

    Jacki was an absolute JOY to communicate and work with, you can tell this home is her pride and joy and it surely shows when staying here. 10/10 recommend!! We will definitely be back!!!

    Thank you Jacki and Adam!!

    Great place to stay!

    The Big Little Cottage is wonderful. We had a really nice stay. The place was clean, well kept, and Jacki (one of the owners) was a wonderful resource in terms of things to do on the Cape.

    Another wonderful stay!

    We had another wonderful stay this year at The Big Little Cottage! Our children were so excited to be back - they love the bunk bed room and the huge couch in the back family room! They feel at home as soon as we arrive.

    The cottage is clean, cozy and so cute! Jacki's (and Adam's) attention to detail as well as little updates throughout the cottage from last year were so appreciated! The washer and dryer, necessities in the kitchen and the beach chairs and new beach wagon were a huge huge help - we packed less!

    We look forward to staying every time we come back to the cape. Hopefully we can make it every year!!

    Absolutely perfect getaway at this cottage. It was so beautiful on the inside. The backyard was perfect and it was so relaxing to sit by the fire or lounge on the chairs. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. The location was perfect too - close to everything yet hidden and quiet. We absolutely loved it here and cannot wait to go back soon.

    Adorable, Pristine Cottage-- and comes with every vacation need!

    We spent two-and-a-half peaceful weeks, during an otherwise tumultuous time (Hurricanes Henri and Ida) at the Big Little Cottage. The house itself is darling, exquisitely clean, and decorated with love. It has nothing more, and nothing less, than what one needs while on vacation-- which is my definition of comfort. Nothing to think about (!!) when making a trip to the beach-- beach buggy, microfiber towels, and new beach chairs included. It is a pleasant walk to the beach, or to a great neighborhood bakery and gelato shop.

    Jacki was immediately accessible when any small issue arose. All the ingredients to clear a busy mind after a busy, sometimes difficult, year. Now that we have our beach routine down, and have made good local discoveries, we will definitely be back!

    My husband Adam and I fell in love with The Big Little Cottage as soon as we saw it! We were vacationing in Dennis when we decided to check out a nearby open house. The rest is history. We absolutely love hosting and providing a comfortable place for our guests to call home while on vacation.

    One of the things we love about Cape Cod is how much there is to do, and how many absolutely incredible dining experiences there are. We are happy to share our favorites and we look forward to hearing about your Cape Cod adventures so we can experience them too!

    We enjoy home improvement and entertaining, and we've been working hard to make the cottage special for our guests. We put a lot of love into this cottage, and we hope you'll feel the love and make memories to last a lifetime!

    What is special about this property?
    This is not your grandma's cottage. We really enjoy how spacious, bright and open it is. The knotty pine entry is welcoming and beachy, it has vintage charm with contemporary style. The newer, large living room with skylights and an enormous sectional couch is a perfect place for everyone to relax comfortably. The outdoor area is fenced in and is a perfect place to enjoy a barbecue or take a nap. And then there's the location! Centrally located, Mid Cape, there's easy access to all that Cape Cod has to offer.

    What is special about your town?
    The mid-cape location is perfectly situated to take advantage of activities up and down the Cape! The cottage is less than 7/10 of a mile to 3 wonderful beaches. Or you might choose to walk to Skull Island with activities like mini golf, driving range, arcade, go karts, batting cages, kickball & wiffle ball. Cape Cod Inflatable Park is also located in Yarmouth and is just a short drive away. Restaurants are abundant in every direction, so you can choose to stick with your old favorites, or try something new. And, let's not forget the Cape Cod Rail Trail - The Station Avenue Trailhead is just 3.5 miles from the cottage. We love South Yarmouth and we hope that you will, too.
