It was wonderful, the cottage was adorable and surrounding land gorgeous. Loved the privacy of the property. The sunsets were stunning overlooking the marsh. The landlords were very responsive. Only issue (which we knew in advance) was no air conditioning. The weather was great most of week, but the heatwave the last two days was intense and challenging for sleep. We asked for an extra fan which they brought immediately and helped. Ceiling fans would make a huge difference if possible. However, most nights were very comfortable. The screened in porch was wonderful! Look forward to staying there again. Thanks

Had a fabulous week at the Captain's Cottage. The cottage is charming and comfortable. Loved dining in the screened porch. The living room is a nice space. The views from the master bedroom are amazing. I loved waking up to all the different birdsongs. The backyard and marsh offer great views of the sunset. I am already missing the outdoor shower! The kitchen is well equipped. The house is fairly close to Route 6 but street noise was not a problem. I loved the privacy and seclusion. This is a slice of heaven! Oh and last but not least, Scott was a fabulous host! I was sad to leave and plan to return next year.

We were overwhelmed bu the beauty of this house and its surroundings. Birds and rabbits and sunsets and breathtaking mornings. Incredibly beautiful and peaceful, and amaizing how it is close to route 6 yet feels totally remote and enchanting. Scott was a great host, responding promptly to our needs. We will return. Thank you!

Every morning, first thing, my wife and I went to the chairs and bench overlooking the the marsh. What a way to start the day! We had a bunch of crisises in our life and this was a perfect place to recuperate. The house was comfortable, somewhat rustic and also beautiful. A great stay!

This was our second time at this summer cottage and it is truly magical. The cottage is rustic (love it) but maintained with a lot of taste and it feels like jumping back in time, but with all the modern commodities. It's just perfect. The location is gorgeous, as the cottage is looking at the marsh and it's sided by trees and bushes. A gorgeous view from the master bedroom reminds me of England, especially in the morning light. When I am here I feel I can really relax and disconnect from the hectic pace of home. Magical.

Wonderful small artist's cottage with a lovely window filled bedroom with a queen bed, a loft with two twin beds, an updated kitchen and bath, two smaller fridges each with a little freezer, a screen porch with dining table for 4, and a yard with beach plums, wild black cherries (just don't eat the pits which are poisonous), and a beautiful view of Blackfish creek and the surrounding marsh, including a resident osprey. The proximity to rt 6 was not an issue. The cottage feels tucked away and very peaceful. There is easy access to the nearby rail trail for bicycling or getting to the area beaches and trails on foot. There is a wonderful network of trails nearby in the wooded area between Maguire Landing and Nauset Lighthouse. Scott was a gracious and helpful host. We didn't read carefully enough to notice the rule against children under 15, and unfortunately a friend and her 4 year old couldn't come for a planned visit, but this was our mistake. We also didn't realize the need to bring our own linens, but thankfully Scott had an extra set of sheets. The mattresses are an older spring type, but just fine and everyone slept well. There was an issue with low flow rate from the kitchen faucet which they should be able to fix soon. The outdoor shower was very nice, as were the sunsets over the marsh. Thanks so much, we hope to be back.

Our time at the Captain's Cottage couldn't have been better. The setting by the marsh was magical, and we were treated to glorious sunsets and soaring birds almost every day. The cottage is adorable, better than the photos, with a well-stocked kitchen which was important for us because we cooked each evening, comfortable beds and a wonderful screened porch. The outdoor shower was fabulous with great water pressure and a view to die for. Most of all, we found our host, Scott, to be incredibly kind and responsive to every question we had. We would absolutely recommend, even with the occasional noise from nearby Rte 6, this cottage felt a world away. Hope to return next summer!

We had a great week and wanted to stay longer! Scott’s house was clean, well-furnished, and he was a friendly and welcoming host. Sunsets on the marsh were spectacular!

Incredibly charming cottage with everything we needed—well fitted kitchen, modern bath, heavenly outdoor shower, sweet screened-in porch and comfortable beds for us in the main bedroom and upstairs in the loft for our college age daughter. The house came with two fans. We brought an extra that we put to good use during the hot spell when we visited. The hosts were very responsive and friendly. Great location. And beautiful landscape—the smell of honeysuckle out the back door was heavenly. The cottage was recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. We would certainly return and recommend to others.
