About this listing
If you are an artist, a bird watcher, or outdoor sports fan, you will love this location. Right on the Back River with incredible views of ospreys. Walk to beach and to canal. See colors of sunset reflected in water! Relax!
This is a very private location sitting on 2.3 acres of protected marshland, with commanding views that expand to over a mile. There are 3 osprey nests in the back. Kayak to the beach. Great food and ice cream nearby in quaint Monument Beach. I have two driveways with parking for four automobiles. New home (built in 2000) with radiant heat, fireplace, A/C, and large windows to let in natural light all day long.
The guest area includes the upstairs bedroom and bath as well as outdoor seating areas. The hot tub is open to guests Spring, Summer, and Fall. The kitchen and dining area is also available. There is a TV and sitting area in the guest suite . Small sailboats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards can be launched from the shore. Feel free to use the outdoor shower when you return from your adventures. Several Adirondack chairs are on the lawn, and there is a large deck for relaxing.
Interaction with Guests
I live on the first floor which includes the living room and my bathroom and bedroom. Guests have use of the kitchen and dining area although the living room and downstairs bath are private.
There is a great breakfast and lunch place across the street. The Lobster Trap is a very popular restaurant and gathering place within walking distance. Trading Post lounge is a 5 minute car wide and offers a pub atmosphere and good food. Beaches and ice cream nearby.
Shore Road is a bike route. You will see hundreds of bicyclists during your stay. It is a busy road though, so practice safe biking. Peter Pan and local Cape Cod bus has a stop close by. Buses go all over the Cape as well as directly to Boston, Logan Airport, and Providence.
Other Things to Note
The bed and furniture in the guest room are of top quality, new, and extremely comfortable. Driving distance to Boston is exactly one hour and to Providence 50 minutes, longer during rush hours. Historical New Bedford is 30 minutes, Newport 1 hour, Provincetown one hour, Hyannis 20 minutes, Falmouth 15 minutes.
I can arrange sailing and/or kayak trips for you if interested.
