A perfect family home for vacation

My wife and I took my mother and our 3-year-old and 1-year-old kids to Cape Cod in the last week of August. The cottage was very comfortable and very well prepared for a family to move in. Our kids had lots of fun on the Onset Beach literally minutes walk from the cottage, and we had really good lobsters from Eastwind Lobster. It is a very recommended place for a family to stay and we will definitely go back next summer. Thanks for your hospitality.

Cozy Onset Cottage

Spent last week at this 2 bedroom cottage conveniently located to beaches and village. Cottage was supplied as described and was in good condition. My "boys" are 16 and 19 and we found the single bathroom to be a little too cozy but would have been fine when they were smaller/younger. Outdoor shower very dark and with cooler than seasonable weather we didnt use it. Contact person accessible for questions visit. No WiFi was disappointing for kids but delightful for me. Good sized driveway accommodated our sunfish and trailer and 2 vehicles - very nice to be able to store sunfish off road.

Great stay and charming owners!

We're a family of 4 (2 teenage kids) and stayed 4 nights in this cottage. We have very much enjoyed our stay and the area is really wonderful. The cottage matches perfectly the description and the pictures on the website, no surprise whatsoever. It is located in a nice residential area (need to take the car to run some errands but that's not a big deal) and just 5 min. away from the beach (walking distance). We have been greeted by the charming owners in person who shared with us plenty of insider tips and provided us maps, restaurant names and places of interest to visit. The kitchen is fully furnished (coffee maker, toaster). The kids' room has a bulk bed and the parents' room a double bed (if I wanted to complain, I'd say the parent bed was a little small but this is not an actual complaint, more of a statement!). There also might be a sofa bed in the main room although we didn't use it. All bed sheets and towels can be rented for a very low extra fee (up to USD2 max per item) which was highly appreciated since we had none. Too bad we couldn't use the washing machine and dryer but there's a laundry a few blocks away. We highly recommend both the cottage and the owners (Donna and Jim)!

Adorable little 2 bedroom - our girls vaca!

My best friend and I had the pleasure of staying in this cute little home for a perfect girl's getaway. Two bedrooms were plenty of room for us (plus more).. One day it was rainy, we just sat on the screened in porch and talked, read our books, had some beverages :) The next few days were perfect beach weather.. just walked down to the beach, very close by.. actually there is a lot of places withing walking distance... food, post office, candy, ice cream, shops, etc... would definately stay again :)

Thank you, Melissa! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again next time you want to getaway!

Warm and welcoming home

This home is located near Onset beach and close to everything. It is fully furnished and everything there; no need to bring all kitchen stuff, cleaning etc. I brought too much from home. The landlady Diane was very happy to answer my questions. We had a wonderful time.

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Nargis! It was wonderful to have you and I do hope you come back again next year!

Cute cottage

Very cute cottage with many amenities: ceiling fans, dishwasher/ laundry/ microwave with full kitchen. Beautiful screened in front porch with wicker furniture. Just minutes walk from town and main beach. I know Onset well as I spent many summers there as a child. Love Marc Anthony's pizza place. There was live music and evening movies for the kids at the band shell. Had a great time even in 95 degree (unusual) heat and thunderstorms one night. Thanks for allowing us to stay there.

Cute little cottage

Thank you for letting us stay in your cottage, we had a great time, watching fireworks, going on a whale watch, going to the beach, seeing light houses and just driving through the many villages of the cape. We always knew we had a nice cottage to come home to. Thanks again The Mitchells

Had a great couples weekend at this nice, cozy house. The location is in a quiet neighborhood and is close to Onset village. It was our first time on the Cape and we had a great time. The owner Diane was very friendly and accommodating.

Providence RI


My friends and I stayed for the week. We had a great time kayaking on the bay. I did some fishing. Missed a striper but caught a 7lb 11oz blue! It was walkable to the beaches for sunning. Also walkable to a few fun pubs in the lil town. At night we had a fun time playing games on the screened in porch. The house was very cozy and comfortable.

This place is awesome, I spent one week in Onset and had a ball. The house has all the charm of a the Cape. It is a 5 minute walk to the private beach at the end of the road. We walked in Onset village and had breakfast everymorning, the view of the bay is breathtaking. I look forward to another wonderful vacation there next year... thank you sharing your special place with us!


Reading, MA

Excellent location for cape activities

My family and I stayed at this cottage for a week in July. It was a cute cottage at a great price. We had the option of walking to 3 different beaches, depending on how far you wanted to walk. My husband golfed right down the street at Baypoint Country Club. The kids loved the warm water and exploring on the beach.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Our stay at the Cottage was very relaxing and enjoyable. The Cottage itself is a neat, clean, and comfortable place to vacation. We especially enjoyed the location so close to the beach. We would recommend this little gem to anyone seeking to relax and take in the sights of Onset and a broad. The beaches are clean and the water easy to dive into, or, just walk about in it to cool yourself off. Everything from golfing, to fishing, shopping, or, dining, is within minutes in any direction. It was an all around very enjoyable time for us, something we really needed for a long time.

Lastly, we would like to say; the Cottage is completely accommodating in all facets of needs for any vacationer.
Thank you Donna for your hospitality.
