Description of the Onset vacation cottage rental
This cottage is unlike anything you have ever experienced. It is a renovated 1890's Victorian Cottage. It has a small beautifully landscaped front yard surrounded by a white picket fence. Normal high tide goes 3/4 under the house. Stairs lead directly to the water. There is a large wrap around porch with newly purchased wooden rockers and a sun deck with lounge chairs and a small eating table. There is a full working Kitchen with an upgraded 40 gallon hotwater tank as well as a new refrigerator. The cottage does have Cable TV, and a DVD/ VCR player. There are 3 bedrooms, one double, two rooms with two sets of twins beds (4). The village of Onset, white sandy public beach and great restaurants are located within walking distance. Kayaks and motor boat rentals are located nearby as well. If you own your own boat, the public boat ramp is conveniently less then 200 yards. You can even fish for stripers /sea bass right off of porch (high tide) or walk down the street to a "fishing" bridge. Also from the porch and deck, you can enjoy picturesque sunrises and sunsets.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
Convenient location to experience all of Southeast New England. Never have to "fight" Sagamore and/or Bourne Bridge traffic attempting to go travel further down the Cape. At low tide, children (and adults) can go down to the water, explore, and look for shells, crabs, and small fish (minnows) while you sit back in a rocker on the porch, relax and always keep an eye on them.

spectacular stay

"The Grandview Cottage" was just perfect. Myself and two friends stayed here for a weekend to do the Onset triathlon. Bruce and Gail were very accomadating. The cottage was impeccably clean and comfortable. Sitting out on the day or night was amazing! Watching the horseshoe crabs at night was one of the highlights of our trip. I would highly recommend this cottage!

Perfect Beach House Rental for My Family

May 27, 2014

I couldn't have asked for a better Memorial weekend. The house was perfect. Fully stocked for pretty much all your needs. Very comfortable home! My kids would spend hours having fun exploring the wildlife around the deck as I got to sit in the rocker or lay in the lounge chairs supplied and relax and still be able to watch them. My husbands favorite part was being able to relax with the family yet still fish off the deck! Onset Village was a short walk from the house with restaurants, shops, ice cream shops, and convenience store if you run out of some basic needs for breakfast. I really couldn't have asked for a better accommodations!

Total Relaxation

August 21, 2013

What a terrific vacation; it's a picture post card New England town and the cottage was relaxing and comfortable. Want to take a swim? Just get up from the front porch walk down the side steps and you are in the water. Nothing could be easier. Everything is withinin a mile and a half of the cottage.....great fish, Italian and Chinese restaurants--I'm originally from New York and expect a lot when I go out to eat--I was not disappointed here. Planned day trips to Nantucket, whale watching, shopping and everything is just 1/2 hour away. Like to feel like you're really away in a picture perfect setting, just look out the front windows of the cottage when you wake up every morning.

We were fortunate to stay at the Hutchins during the last week of June, first week of July. What a lovely place, owned by lovely people. As the water comes under the deck, the views are to die for. The covered deck afforded us the opportunity to watch storms come in as well as enjoy the beautiful weather. We brought our kayaks and were able to use them with ease daily.The cottage inside is warm and well appointed. There was nothing I ever looked for that wasn't available. Pretty dishes, nice glassware, plenty of pots, pans, etc.. Beds were very comfortable, pretty linens. I felt like every day I discovered something new. Our stay was wonderful-cannot wait to return!

Peaceful Waterfront

June 1, 2012

We loved waking up the first morning and seeing the sun sparkling on the water right outside the living room windows! Glorious! We so enjoyed being right on the water. The kids collected shells and snails and watched all variety of crabs (including horseshoe crabs). We also spent a lot of time at the beach (5 min away) building sandcastles and yes, even swimming in May! The cottage is tiny which adds to the charm. The owners were very helpful and relaxed, making us feel so at home. Recommended! We did have a mix of rain and sun, and some fog, so come prepared for it all. Also, if planning to take the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, look carefully at the parking before you go - don't go all the way to Wood's Hole because you'll just come 3/4 of the way home again to park and then take a shuttle-bus back to Woods Hole. Recommended to visit : Boston (1hr), Martha's Vineyard, Chatham (quaint town with gorgeous beaches) and lots more to see. We were amazed to see seals (more than 50) while in Chatham.

Wonderful Place to Vacation

September 7, 2011

We loved the home in Onset. It was wonderfully decorated, clean and picturesque. The owners were very helpful, providing directions, dinner ideas and interesting town history. We really enjoyed this area as it was close enough to the Cape but without the traffic and overwhelming tourist feel. We were able to be to many spots on the cape within 15 minutes. The beach in Onset was not too busy and really beautiful. The home is within walking distance of the town, beach and many other beautiful sights. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful vacation escape

July 16, 2011

My July week at Grandview Cottage was everything I could have hoped. The cottage itself is well-located (a short walk from beach and village, and quiet) and well-situated (looking out over the water while eating dinner at the picnic table was so peaceful). Everything we could have needed was on hand, and the cottage is impeccably kept. The owners are incredibly nice and welcoming, and provided useful suggestions whenever we needed them. When I left I wished I could have been there another week, and I hope to return next summer.

exceptionnal cottage!!!

We stayed one week at this cottage on last june and everything was perfect! The owners were very fantastic and always ready to give us many informations or suggestions. The cottage was very beautiful and clean. We could find everything we needed. The vue was wonderfull from the deck. It was special to feel the house almost in the water with the high tide. My children appreciate to fish crabs from the deck! The water in the bay was warm enough to swim all day long. Onset is a beatifull village and there is many things to do around the house. All the family loved this trip. We hope to return again!

A Perfect Cape Cod Vacation

December 15, 2010

Our family has stayed at the Grandview cottage twice already. Nothing is better than drinking your morning coffee on the porch overlooking the bay. The cottage is beautiful and is close to so many cape activities. Our daughter loves that the house is on the water so she can collect crabs and swim and never leave the house.

Fishing Trip

October 22, 2010

We rented the house for several days in the beginning of October to do some striper and tuna fishing. The house is indeed on the water and over the water which was really unique. We were to tired at the end of the day but when the tide comes in you could fish right off the dock. The house was very clean with an interesting history. The owners were very pleasant and even lined us up with a great fishing guide. When we come back next fall we will be staying here.

Grand parent delight!

May 18, 2010

Our stay was even more than we hoped for. My grandson was celebrating his 4th birthday and my concern was being that close to the water. To my relief, the gates were pretty much child's proof, as was the rest of the cottage. Everything you could want & more. Very well equipped. We'll be back.

Once In A Lifetime Trip!!

September 28, 2009

We LOVED our time at Grandview Cottage!! My family traveled from Georgia to Onset to fulfill a lifelong dream of my 70 year old mother to travel to Cape Cod. We also had a 3 year old little boy on this journey. The vacations started with a 22 hour drive up from GA (mom can not fly) and ended at this GREAT cottage!! The owners are great people who can answer any questions that you may have about the area, and give great restaurant suggestions too!! We traveled the entire Cape during our visit and never wished that we had stayed anywhere else. Every evening we looked forward to returning to Onset and The Grandview Cottage! Onset Village is very charming and has everything that you would like to see right there. My husband loved the fishing and my mom and I loved all of the beautiful houses. My toddler loved all of the beach areas and looking for shells. The cottage is beautiful and very inviting. All in all this was EVERYTHING that we wanted out "Once in a Lifetime" vacation to be!!! Thank you so much for helping us make it happen!!!!!

Exceptional Hospitality & Ambiance

July 21, 2009

Visited with family of teen children and foudn accommodations enchanting. Obviously a well loved and tended home with all the amenities and a beautiful view to make it a relaxing and truly enjoyable trip. Whenever we thought we needed to pick something up - it was there!! The family owners were wonderful and went out ot their way to make suggestions and give us shortcut directions to venues. Location conveneient to beach, shops, restaurants - all walking distance, and grocery store and Walmart 10 mins away. PERFECT place for people visiting and wanting to see the Wareham Gatemen play! Perfect place if you want convenience and ambience without incovenience of cape traffic. Onset Beach is on bay whcih is perfect for small children and (whew)had tolerably warmer water than ocean. Could not recommend higher - exceptional experience...can't wait to go back!
