My husband and I arrived to West Yarmouth on August 24th and departed Labor Day. This cottage is well-maintained and lovely. We were joined a few days later by two grandchildren, ages 9 and 13, and my husband's sister. With the futon on the porch, all five of us were able to sleep comfortably...and the outside shower was a plus since the cottage has just one bathroom.
The back deck is large, with plenty of space to relax, grill, and eat. The kitchen was very well-stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, pots and pans...a microwave, a toaster, a toaster oven, two coffee makers, and a dishwasher..as well as a lovely deep farmer's sink.
There are a couple of small beaches within walking distance, but we purchased a weekly pass and spent most days at Seagull Beach, which is just a short drive away, and is long and wide, with a concession stand and bathrooms. The beach pass allows you to go to any Yarmouth Beach, so my husband and grandson were able to fish off the fishing pier at Smuggler's Beach a couple of days, too. There are so many activities and restaurants nearby...we enjoyed a great breakfast at Ann and Fran's just around the corner on Rte. 28, wonderful pizza at Palio's on Main Street in Hyannis, and exceptional sushi at Misaki Sushi on West Main Street in Hyannis. Also, best ice cream at Penguin's (60+ flavors!). Barbara and Lou were in touch to confirm that all was good at the cottage...very responsive. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
