Guest Reviews

We love the boathouse!!!

We spent a gorgeous week at the Boathouse with our two daughters--one is 3 years old and the other just 3 months. My husband and I had also stayed here with our older daughter when she was only 3 months, and we cherished the memories of looking out through the glass sliding doors at the breathtakingly beautiful Quissett Harbor. We were so happy to be back--just as lovely as we remembered! We were thrilled to discover that not only was the house clean and well-kept, as always, it contained a \"secret\" stash of toys (that my 3yo daughter promptly located within the first 5min of arrival), including both things for older children (a dollhouse, some art supplies, books, plus sand buckets/toys that Sue dropped by the house on the first day) AND several baby toys that my 3mo absolutely adored! Sue and Gary were very gracious hosts. They delivered a pack-n-play crib as well as a highchair to the house before our arrival so that we would not need to lug these things. We also greatly appreciated their flexibility in helping us arrange to stay an 8th night so that we could spend two full weekends on the Cape.

Lovely setting, perfectly equipped home

This house was just as advertised, small but well equipped and perfect for a family of four (with children ages 7 and 10) in a unique setting. The sunsets over The Knob were worth every penny. We rented paddle boards from a local company and went out daily from the boathouse, paddling over to the beach across the harbor to swim. The bedrooms were small but neat. The kitchen had everything you could want. Moreover, the owners were the perfect blend of friendly and helpful and leaving you to enjoy your vacation. The location was great, too - you could jog down sidewalks to the bike trail and it was a quick car trip to both Falmouth Center and Woods Hole. Mostly we loved the house just to sit on the deck and watch the boats in the harbor.

Peaceful Setting

We were very happy with our stay here. The Boathouse was clean and incredibly well-equipped with kitchen necessities, washer and dryer, linens, etc. A beautiful sunset spot every night. The owners were wonderful to interact with. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Great Cape Cod Getaway by the Bay

We had the pleasure of spending a week at this lovely and comfortable cottage the week of the 4th of July. We loved the location, the great view from the deck, and the proximity to a great little beach, which we really enjoyed, and to all the activities that this great little town of Falmouth has to offer. The owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful The house is all that was advertised, and we certainly will be back in the future. We strongly recommend this lovely Boathouse, and hope that you do too.

Fabulous vacation house

The boathouse is the perfect summer vacation place for our family. We had a fabulous week - really loved paddle boarding and sailing in the harbor. We stored our two paddle boards at the lower level of the house, and itís so convenient to put them in water. The boathouse has terrific water views. We enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner on the porch watching sail boats coming and leaving the harbor. The house is also very conveniently located (5 min to Woods Hole and Falmouth), and the kitchen is very well equipped.
