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

Therese's cottage on the bay was so cute and quaint. It's exactly as pictured and situated in a quiet area of the Cape, yet close to restaurants, grocery stores, cute Cape towns for exploring, water access, etc. We enjoyed our weekend stay and will look to stay again if we head back! Thanks! Amanda

The beauty and relaxing nature of this cottage is second only to the friendliness and hospitality of its hosts. Therese gave us perfect directions, wished me good luck in my race and even shared race clippings and a little basket full of Gatorade and energy bars upon arrival. The cottage was super clean, inviting and cozy. The outdoor patio and courtyard were romantic and perfect for a glass of vino and conversation. The inside was bigger than expected and had everything you could need for the perfect beach retreat!

We had a very nice stay at Therese and Don's cottage. Therese was great at communicating directions before our visit and we had no problem getting in and making ourselves at home. The cottage was comfortable and had enough room for my my wife and I and our 3 month old baby. Therese and Don provided everything we needed and even coffee, toiletries, bottled water, and plenty of towels. Mashpee Commons is a very short drive away with lots of dining and shopping and Woods Hole and Hyannis are both reasonable drives for day trips.
