The cottage is a vintage, post WWII with knotty pine throughout. It overlooks a Cape Code Kettle pond, and has a private beach and dock. The Pond offers a peaceful setting, swimming, boating, fishing, and relaxing. There are also other beaches, larger, though there are no lifeguards anywhere on the Pond. We are about 6 miles from several town (ocean) beaches, and less than that to the downtown (touristy) shops, restaurants, and island ferries.
