Perfect quiet getaway ....
Location was amazing right on the water. Watched the birds in the morning and kayaked each day.
Within easy distance to all the ferriies which we took advantage of and visited Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket .
The owner was easy to reach and very helpful when we needed her.
I would defiantly go back and also recommend this cottage to friends.....
Great spot for kids to get some great exposure to nature! Biking, canoeing, walking and playing outside and on the beach. Cottage was homing and provided lots of cute rooms and little treasures to explore and find. Overall a great weekend!
We stayed three wonderful nights in this well equipped cottage at Bourne (Monument Beach). The cottage is lovely - even better than the photos, and in a really relaxing and picturesque spot in Cape Cod. The location is excellent: a 20 minute walk to the quiet Monument Beach (or 5 minutes drive). The cottage that can accommodate 2 couples includes everything you might need (even binoculars for those who like bird-watching). Neighbors are very discreet and ultra quiet. It is located on a calm inlet beach where you can do sports (ex. canoeing) or just relax listening to nature. Ideal for bird-watchers. An excellent restaurant (Lobster trap) is located in a 10 minute walking distance, there you could enjoy many delicious recipes of seafood or meat. A home made ice cream place is also located near the cottage. It is an ideal center for exploring the beauties of Cape Cod
We'd love to come back again, and to stay longer
We just returned from a fabulous stay at the Owell cottage. It's charm was captivating and the STUNNING bay views steps from the lovely screened in porch put our minds at ease. We had so much fun swimming and kayaking in the bay. There were great walking neighborhoods for us to walk the little pups too. We loved being a short walk from the Lobster Trap (super yummy) and within distance to bike to two different beaches (you do have to go on busy roads the majority of the way). The beds were comfy and house was equipped with everything we needed. The big outdoor shower was awesome as the bathroom is tiny. We were so sad to leave and can't wait to return! Peggy is a delight to work with too!
Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a vac this much. Think it might have been when I was a child will remember this one for sure. Hated to have to leave. My wife cried
I have grown up spending summers in this cottage. After many years of being unable to visit, I was finally able to get my children up there. I was amazed to walk in and have it feel exactly the same as all of those summers long ago! The Otwell's have done an amazing job maintaining the upgrades while keeping the relaxing nature that comes with the cottage.
We had 3 adults and my 3 children (aged 12-18) and they absolutely loved it! I could barely get my kids out of the pond to go to dinner, or anywhere else for that matter. The Lobster Trap is definitely a favorite. We are also a pretty active family, so the Canal Trail was a must. Such a relaxing adventure! We traveled all over the Cape, with a fishing and shopping day in Hyannis and another shopping day in Provincetown. We also made it out to Martha's Vineyard for a day!
Our only regret is that we did not get to the drive in movie theater! But it has made it to our Cape Bucket List!
We can't wait for our next visit!!!!
