A country cottage in Bourne, Cape Cod, about one hour from Boston, is a great place to "get away from it all" and to be alone or together with friends and family. 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. Guided tours of the farm are available upon request. Guests also have access to the private Narrows Beach on Buttermilk Bay.
The 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. There are 3 bedrooms (one with a fireplace), 2 bathrooms, 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.
Weekly rentals are available during the summer.
