Description of the Bourne vacation cottage rental
Marie's cottage was built in 1916, and is furnished in the character of traditional Cape Cod with some charming antiques from that era. The cottage was part of an artist's colony until the 1930's, and the property has lots of interesting history. It is located on a quiet hilltop surrounded by 250 acres of nature and wildlife sanctuary (not open to the public) which includes ponds, fields, forests, streams, riding and walking trails, and our family's organic farm. There are 3 bedrooms (one with a fireplace), 1 bathroom, a living room with a fireplace, a sunny dining room, and a recently renovated kitchen. Two additional people can sleep in the separate guest cabin. Outside there is a lawn and 2 brick terraces facing south and west, with views of horse pastures, forest, trails, and the pond at sunset.
Area Information
Marie's cottage is surrounded by acres of a wildlife sanctuary, only open to the public at scheduled times. There are a number of walking and riding trails to be discovered nearby. The cottage is minutes away from a private small beach on Buttermilk Bay. The bay is a great area for fishing and kayaking. Larger public beaches are near by in Sandwich

We stayed at Marie's cottage for three nights, mid-week, and wished we had longer. Easy enough access to all the pleasures of Cape Cod, with a quiet place to return to after days out on the beach or in P-Town. The cottage has a fabulous fireplace, lots of warm water for the outdoor shower, birds and great walking trails. Didn't get out in a canoe on the ponds, and missed having a place to swim right on the property, but loved our stay.
