Lovely little cottage in a secluded spot in the south part of the Cape. Very clean, cozy bed, beachy decor (including lovely Christmas decorations!) microwave, fridge, and coffee maker. Coffee, filters, hot cocoa, and tea all made for an easy morning. Shampoo, conditioner and soap were all there too. Close to shopping, and beaches. I was there in December, but in the summer one could sit out by the chiminea or enjoy the dock. Check in/out was easy and Therese was easy to get in touch with. She left a nice welcome gift and sent me encouragement about the big presentation I had to give. I watched one beautiful sunrise; I saw gulls and mergansers and buffleheads, and I heard a loon. It was so peaceful. I wanted to specifically address another reviewer's comment about the proximity of the cottage to the water. It's true that the cottage does not have a view of the water from inside. The windows are shaded for privacy. However, you can see the water if you walk maybe 10 steps from the door. To actually touch the water, you would have to walk ~200/250 feet. I recommend this charming spot. I am sorry I had to leave. It's a lovely place and I would stay there again. Thank you, Therese and Don!

Our experience at cottage on the bay was nothing but fabulous! The cottage was surrounded by ocean and it was absolutely gorgeous. The actual cottage was great, and we made great use of the outdoor patio at night:) The place was very clean and homey , and equipped with ceiling fans. we took a few walks with our coffee down to the water and out I be sick with our coffee ( which was provided in our suite- which was great) . Therese and don were so sweet and left us a little welcome note with lots of treats. We even left behind a souvenir that my brother had bought from Israel to give to my grandmother - and Therese Hand delivered it to my Nana at her house :). We would definitely stay here again. Thank you Therese and don!

This is a very nice and relaxing place on the Cape. The condo is just as pictured, very cosy, spacious enough for a family and has a beautiful yard and a bay view just a few steps away. Therese did a wonderful job tastefully decorating the cottage. Besides, she is an outstanding and accommodating host. Not only she was always quick to respond and went out of her way to find a bassinet for our 2-month old, but she also prepared a little gift basket, which was such an amazing finishing touch. As far as location, it’s only a few minutes drive from Mashpee commons or Hyannis with plenty of restaurants and sightseeing places. Highly recommend both the host and the house for a nice and relaxing getaway.

I felt instantly welcome with a personalized message on the door and a nice basket of Cape Cod treats! The cottage was right near the water (although poor weather made that less of a perk!). The space is clean and beach-y and didn't disappoint. The only downside was the internet connection, but it eventually worked if I sit still. Therese was in touch all the way and gave great directions and was always helpful. A lovely spot!

This lodging didn’t really work for us. I must admit that I was seduced by the web page photo taken from the dock looking out over Poppanessett Bay. So, when we pulled into the driveway, the first thing I did was to start to walk down to the dock. About 200’ away there was a virtual barrier and the view of the dock and Bay was mostly blocked by trees. So, the photo on the web page is not your view. Then, going into the lodging, you walk through the porch which was a little different as it was 3 solid walls and a roof w gravel and fake stones as a floor, decorated in Cape Cod rustic. The photo of it has a table and chairs. There was a rug there which would make the passage easier for less stable people. Going inside, you are quickly struck that all the windows were heavily curtained or opaque in both rooms, so little light or view. In the LR there is a little kitchenette but no sink. There was nice china, glasses, and silverware, but if no sink except for the bathroom, using the copious paper ware might be a better answer. The LR was furnished in Cape Cod rustic. In the bedroom, there was only one small bedside lamp, so no reading in bed. Before going into the bathroom, there was a small passageway w shelves entirely filled by the rolled 17 or so large bath towels and knick knacks. In the stark bathroom, there was only the shower, a small standalone sink, the toilet, a 5” by 5” wire rack and a single 18” towel rack. NO counters. The tp seemed like that least expensive you could buy. We had been sailing the week before and we looked forward to catching up on hurricane Irma on the TV news. I should have read the fine print of the listing more carefully as there was no TV. There was Wi-Fi but it kept dropping out. Perhaps that was our iphone and ipad. We did get to see the neighbors and hear their dog, but Therese must have been out of town. The bottom line is that it is basic accommodations furnished in Cape Cod rustic but we were expecting more, especially as shown in web page photo of the Bay.

Hello Larry, I would like to apologize to you and your wife. We are sorry that your experience with us was not up to your expectations. I have to say ,I am pretty shocked by your review since you did not reach out to me and communicate your concerns that you listed. I value my guest and strive to make their stay with us as comfortable as possible . I will take your critique and improve what I can control. The rope that you said was a barrier for not seeing and viewing the bay was a required water safety and caution reminder for our guest. You were welcomed ,like all my guest to have a full view of Popponessett Bay. Warm regard, Therese and Don
