Anchorage on the Cove
Reviewed 25 August 2012 via mobile

This was our first family vacation to the Cape and Anchorage on the Cove and it has been decided that it will now become "tradition". The Anchorage on the Cove is a little piece of heaven.
The cottages are well-kept, extremely clean, and cozy. Our family of four felt right at home and had plenty of room. We stayed in The Foremast cottage, which is right on the cove with a beautiful deck. The livingroom/kitchen has big windows that go around the room and look out onto the cove and deck. I could not imagine a more peaceful view to wake up to each morning. The deck allowed our toddler twins to play outside in the evening as we cooked dinner on the grill and watched the sun go down after another terrific day at the beach.
The location of the Ancorage on the Cove is terrific. We were close to both ocean and bay beaches, as well as fantastic restaurants. There is a large Stop and Shop a short drive away, which is so helpful if you are planning to do any cooking or need a few groceries. Provincetown and Wellfleet were both close to drive to, as well as Chatham and other charming areas.
The owners of the Anchorage, Dennis and Kathy, were extremely welcoming and helpful. Kathy brought over maps of neighboring areas and marked places of interest for our family. She was available if we needed anything and made us feel so welcome. Dennis took time to tell us about the history of the place and once again made sure that our family was having a great stay.
On the day our family was to leave, one of our sons looked at us and said "I no leave the vacation house." I think our entire family felt the same way...none of us wanted to leave this "little piece of heaven", but we know for sure that we will return!

This was a delightful way to enjoy Cape Cod with family. The setting is peaceful and relaxing and convenient to many attractions and beaches. The owners were extremely helpful in providing many accurate tips about local restaurants and other highlights. Our family of four enjoyed the spacious apartment with a private deck and a beautiful view. A great advantage over a hotel or motel is the opportunity to do your own cooking in the kitchen or on the outdoor grill while overlooking the lovely cove.

This was our third trip to Anchorage on the Cove and once again our family had a great time. We love the Pilot House! Kathy and Dennis treat us like family and are very helpful with recommendations for dining out and activities for our 6 yr old. The cottage is beautiful and clean with all the amenities you need on a weeks vacation. My wife enjoys the private deck which includes a great view of the cove. The location is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The only bad part is when we have to leave to go home. We highly recommend Anchorage to everyone. This is the only place we will ever stay when we take our annual trip to Cape Cod!!

this May we returned to Anchorage on the Cove for the 11th (!!!) time, and as always had a wonderful time. It is, as we noted from the very first time, way back in a former millenium, a little piece of heaven. The spectacular, endlessly changing, water-front view, the green-blue scenery, the privacy and coziness, the romantic atmosphere and great location, and the hosts-owners, who are truly the perfect hosts, forever charming and attentive. Anchorage is just the perfect getaway, a place to recharge the spirit and the mind, where smiling comes easy and joy is a standard mode.

Anchorage on the Cove was a wonderful place to spend April vacation. The hosts were wonderful, the views and private deck spectacular. What a great location to spend a week at the Cape. Minutes from the seashore, this centrally located lodging is also near to lots of great restaurants and a full Stop and Shop. The place is very dog-friendly and our poodle mix felt right at home with the whole family during our stay. You stay right on the cove to watch the tides ebb and flow, and the private deck was a great place to relax and eat between sightseeing. Highly recommend.

My husband and I just spent a week in the Pilot House at the Anchorage. Weather reports called for a week of rain, but the weather was glorious ~ so pay no attention to the official reports! The cottage was clean as a pin, had everything we could possibly need, plus a wonderful gas fireplace that took the chill off the cooler evenings. We were so busy exploring that we had little time to enjoy the large deck, umbrella table, and gas grill. The view from the deck was lovely. Kathy and Dennis were welcoming hosts with all the "insider tips" we needed to see the beautiful bounty of Cape Cod. The location was perfect ~ P-town just 1/2 hour north and Hyannis 1/2 hour south. We look forward to a return!

"Irene" shortened our trip to Cape Cod but after we got there we were so glad that we decided to make the trip! Our "home" on the Cape was comfortable and welcoming...the view was spectacular and the neighbors were so friendly! The central location of Anchorage on the Cove allowed us easy access to Provincetown and Hyannis...and the ferry to Martha's Vinegard. We would go back again! Thanks to the owners, Kathy and Dennis Bunnell!
