Description

Description

We now offer 3 NIGHT STAYS in September and October! You select the arrival and departure dates. Message us for rates. *We have high speed internet; work remotely, if you must.

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 S 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 breakfast, 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 available for your convenience. If you’re up for exploring, it’s fun to purchase a weekly beach badge and 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.

*There is no bathtub in the bathroom; however, the shower is quite nice. And, of course, there's the outdoor shower!
*Linens and bath towels are not provided.
*Turkish beach towels are provided. Wait until you try them!
*Sorry, no pets. We keep a dander-free home for those with allergies.

    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.

    Perfect!

    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!

    Adorable cottage, wonderful owners, great location!

    We really enjoyed our stay with our young family at The Big Little Cottage! Jacki has been truly amazing!

    I found Jacki and the cottage in a Cape Cod rentals Facebook group! We knew that the cottage was in the process of being renovated when we booked, but had a really good feeling about this rental. So glad we booked with Jacki and Adam! We've really enjoyed following along with all the updates. A lot of love has gone into this cottage and it shows!

    We had a great stay in the cottage for the week! Everything was perfect- really everything we needed! From the central A/C, to the comfy futon couch in the front living space, to the big table to accommodate all four of us for meals, to the comfortable beds, to the fully stocked kitchen with whatever we needed to cook, to the washer and dryer, to the spacious back living/family room, to the beach buggy and chairs, to the beach towels, and the backyard with a grill and beautiful fire table!

    Our kids had so much fun in this house, playing with their toys, exploring the chest of board games, spreading out on the sectional couch watching tv after a long day at the beach, playing in the backyard, eating dinner outback and roasting marshmallows on the fire table! And it offered my husband and I the perfect place to relax once the kids went to bed!

    Jacki was wonderful with all her recommendations on places to check out during our stay. Our kids fell in love with Caffe Bertini Gelato in the neighborhood! My daughter has been asking to go back for gelato since we left! Lol!

    The location is great too! So close to everything, and Smugglers beach which we ended up falling in love with!

    Would highly recommend renting with Jacki and Adam! You will not be disappointed!

    We made some wonderful family memories during our stay. We just love this cottage and the neighborhood! We are already thinking about how we can squeeze in a week here next year!

    Perfect stay

    Very cute, clean, close to everything on the cape! Within walking distance of Windmill Beach, Skippers, and Smugglers! A/C worked beautifully, the backyard was nice and private, and the neighborhood was very quiet. Definitely recommend!

    Vacation 2021

    We rented this house 7/17-7/24. After a tough year just needed to get away. During a search I came upon this cottage for rent due to a cancellation. So happy I was able to contact Jacki to secure the week to rent. We had a great vacation and Jacki was great.

    The cottage was so clean and spacious for our family of 5. It was equipped with everything you needed. I would highly recommend staying at the Big Little Cottage.

    Great clean and new rental in an excellent Cape location.

    We had a perfect week's stay here and enjoyed everything about the big little cottage. The best thing is that everything is so new and clean (the opposite of so many other outdated, worn out small Cape cottages).

    The large back living room was an excellent hang out room with a great new sectional couch and modern TV. The back yard is also really nice, and had the weather been better we definitely would have spent more time there. As it was, we did enjoy a few nights under the lights with the fire pit and the new Weber grill.

    Great stuff all around. Thank you!

    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.
