 You wake to the breezes blowing off the bay and ruffling the curtains. The sound of seagulls overhead cawing to each other as they scout for their next meal breaks the silence of the morning. As others are jockeying for the limited spots at the popular Thumpertown beach, you just grab your towel and head out the door. It’s just a short walk to the stairs heading down to the beach so it is easy to come and go as you please.

After playing in the salty waves and exploring the sand bars after the tide has gone out, a quick rinse in the large outdoor shower is all you need to freshen up for the evening’s events. You can help yourself to the fruit trees or the pick-your-own vegetables in the garden before firing up the grill for a fantastic cookout.

Everyone is enjoying each other’s company while relaxing in the hammock and sitting around the deck watching the friendly competition going on in the bocce court, or the crazy game of badminton happening at the nets. You take a deep breath and breathe in that salty Cape air, breathing out the tensions and feeling the stress leave you like the tides.

The two-bedroom cottage has all the creature comforts. The first bedroom has a comfortable full bed for two. The second bedroom houses a bunk bed consisting of two single beds and the sunroom has a trundle bed that pulls out into two more beds. Like most daybeds, the trundle may not be the most comfortable for a full-sized man of six feet tall and 250 lbs., but one or two smaller adults, teens, or children would be just fine.

The full-sized kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal but even so, who wants to cook when you are located in one of the best vacation areas on Cape Cod? Each reservation comes with an award winning guide to the best local’s insider tips and places to go, things to do, and places to see. You will also be staying close to Wiley Park and Great Pond, some of the greatest freshwater kettle ponds on the Cape. Hop on the Cape Cod Rail Trail and take a ride out to Nauset Light or maybe to the Chocolate Sparrow for a coffee. Everything is within reach here for the perfect family vacation.

Perfect Beach Getaway!

Perfect beach getaway! This well appointed cottage is perfect for a couple or small family, we had everything we needed and is a short 3 minute walk to the beach! Tara is a fantastic host.

Amazing Stay!

Amazing stay! Tara communicated every step of the way - which made things very helpful. The stay is walking distance to a great beach and still close to all things in Orleans and other parts of the outer cape. Beach house was clean and very easy to arrive and check out. Overall would highly recommend.

The Location was great

The location was great, and the beach was amazing. The cottage was very clean and had almost everything we needed. We kept close communication with the host and she responded immediately to whatever we needed. We really enjoyed our weekend.

Janice (Thumpertown Beach - Bay Cottage)

Tara was so responsive and every step of the way she was communicating with me. So helpful! Our family's plans to NH were cancelled on us at the last minute -- really last minute -- as we had the entire car packed with our children, luggage, and food for 3 days. In the car we reached out to Tara who within a few minutes approved our reservation and saved our family vacation. With all of the issues going on in the world we did not need another disappointment. And, we really wanted a place where we felt safe. Tara and the Bay Cottage were perfect. Thank you!!

Everything Was Great

Everything was great, i called Tara twice about little things and she answered immediately. The house was spotless and the walk to the beach took less than 60 seconds. I would stay again and again.
