This is a classic 2 bedroom Cape cottage (sleeps 4) located in the highly desirable South Yarmouth area. It’s perfect for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, an adventure or a business trip. The cottage is 1/3 of a mile from Bass River beach (aka Smuggler’s beach). We are on south side facing Nantucket Sound and the islands.
We would love for you to enjoy your precious free time at our "home away from home".
Our cottage is super clean and has a full kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, AC, WiFi/cable/Netflix, parking for 2 cars, fully fenced in backyard, large wrap around deck, a new - outdoor shower, grill and fire pit.
This is a long standing, fully equipped, any season, rental cottage with impeccable reviews and ratings. We rented the cottage for a few years ourselves and decided to purchase it as soon as we knew it was up for sale.
2018 updates included: vinyl siding for the exterior of the cottage, repaired the fences and deck, built a new outdoor shower enclosure, fire pit and replaced the grill. We have also replaced the majority of the furniture, bedding and furnishings inside. 2019 updates: new outdoor lighting and a shed filled with beach chairs, wagons, umbrellas and a tent. It will be easier for families who prefer to walk to transport all you need for a day at the beach.
We’ve vacationed on the Cape every summer since childhood and highly recommend a cottage over the majority of other options on the Cape. It's far more enjoyable, relaxing, private and comfortable than a tiny hotel room.
This is a great year round home for vacationing or for a romantic weekend get away! This location provides you with easy access to all the Cape has to offer, no matter the season.
Our home is located in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts, United States. We are in a quiet neighborhood of cottages by the beaches on the south coast, yet close to everything you will need. There are many amenities nearby so anything you need or desire is conveniently within reach, and typically within walking distance.
The neighborhood is tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of the Cape. It’s a great spot for evening walks. There is a great loop along the water for runners too. We are about 1/3 of a mile from Nantucket Sound beaches (warmest waters on the Cape)! We are very close to many family centered activities, museums, outdoor adventure excursions/tours, shopping areas, marinas, fishing, a variety of boat tours, restaurants, pubs, golf and entertainment. The cottage is also 15 minutes away from the ferry port to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
You will find the Great Island Bakery, open daily to start your day or the Route 28 diner which is one of our fav breakfast places (cash only) close by. Check out our guidebook for restaurant recommendations. There are also many recommendations from other guests in the guestbook at the cottage.
If you would like to rent bicycles, there are a few suggestions in our guidebook.
The main road coming into this area is Run Pond Road. If you want to head to the beach continue south on Run Pond to the end of the road. It’s a very short walk. The cross street is South Street, which runs parallel to the ocean.
If you take a left on to South Street and walk a few blocks you will see the main entrance to the Bass River/Smuggler’s Beach parking lot on your right.
If you take a right on to South Street (diagonally across the street to the right of Run Pond) you will see the bath house and entrance to the resident’s beach. The resident’s beach is only accessible to visitors by walking given a resident sticker is required to use the parking lot.
Other beaches in this area are to the West or on the other side of Bass River to the East. While all the beaches are beautiful, the Cape Cod Bay beaches and outer Cape beaches have colder water temps than the Nantucket Sound beaches. The water temp at Smuggler’s beach (our beach) during the summer months averages between 72 and 75 degrees.
All beaches have a daily parking fee in season (Memorial Day – Labor Day). You can walk on for free. A weekly parking pass is available at the Town Hall located in South Yarmouth on Route 28. The Hours of Operation are Monday - Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.
