Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Falmouth - Cozy Cottage On Bikepath

2 Bedroom Nest Perfect For The Little Private Getaway You've Been Waiting For.

Cute! Little 2 bedroom cottage sits directly behind Frederick William house and on shining sea bike path, close to beach, pond, shops, and across the street from a great local restaurant. Vineyard goers, walking distance from the steamship authority. Never pay to park to visit the islands. Perfect location!

This adorable little cottage is nestled right behind the Main House on this lovely estate giving you maximum privacy!! Falmouth's Historic Village Green is just minutes away, as well as Highfiled Hall and Katherine Lee Bates birth home (author of America the Beautiful). Whale watch tours, dinner cruises, and fishing charters can be had right from our very own Falmouth Harbor. And if you love antiques, be sure to take in some of the local antique shops and summer events.

Festivals and different special town attractions are scheduled throughout the year, so if you are looking for a specific experience or even, just call to find out more. There is always something fun happening in Falmouth. Come see our Strawberry festival, or our Scallop festival, or take in the fall colors, or visit us during the winter holidays. There is really something for everyone all year round.

About Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor

I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.

Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor chose Falmouth

Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.

What makes this cottage unique

If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes. Easy drives to historic points of interest, walk to breakfast across the street to enjoy the best Irish Eggs Benedict you have ever had. Location, location, location. Come visit the birthplace of 'America the Beautiful' written by Katherine Lee Bates, and visit her child hood home. Take a trolly tour, see Nobska Light House in Woods Hole, still occupied and operated by the Coast Guard Chief. Take in every season, the colors of fall, the impressive frozen ponds in winter, the yellow bursts of color in spring, and the bluest, quiet lapping waves in summer. Cook out, enjoy your family, ferry to the islands, there is so much to do and see here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was very clean. The weather for our stay was really perfect, so we were able to take the best advantage of the bikes provided, the path, BeBe Woods, park and all the trails. A really nice spot. Jeanette was very attentive and knowledgable in helping us to plan our little get away. Thank you.

we enjoyed our stay!

The cottage is a cozy getaway and satisfied our needs comfortably. The sixties kitchen is cool and well equipped. The decorations and furnishings are simple and very tasteful. Jeanette is a dear! The patio with gas grill and free bikes make the cottage an even better deal!
Room for improvement: A light on the patio would be great. New covers on the living room couch might be a thought.
It is conveniently located and offers lots to see nearby. Falmouth is a cute little town with beautiful beaches and marches.
Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and input. I do switch out the couch covers at seasons end, but have bought some new ones. Depending on usage during the summer, wear and tear varies, especially since I allow pets in the cottage. So I did buy a few to switch out. And I will Be addressing the lighting in the patio area.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write and give input. It is the only way we can better serve our visitors and make stays more enjoyable and exciting!! Hope to accommodate you again and it was a pleasure accommodating you!

This cottage was wonderful, and had all the amenities you could dream of plus. It was very clean, had a well stocked kitchen, bikes, beach passes, and the best customer service we have experienced on Cape Cod so far. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Cozy cottage

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I enjoyed our stay here! Although off a busy street, it was quiet and cozy! We enjoyed being close to the bike trail and took several bike rides and walks on it. We sat outside and enjoyed the patio as well. Easy walk to down town. Thank you!

Nice location

  • 3 out of 5
The house was not what we expected. Outside it was not very clean. Spiderwebs, dry foliage and a lot of old dust. We had to clean the veranda and chairs before using. There were no pillows outside. The kitchen was not well equipped. We missed dish washing liquid, wineglases, kitchentowels, kitchenknifes, bowls, tablemats etc. But the owner brought everything after we asked for it. In opposite to the fronthouse we felt like "stepchildren". The location itselfe is nice to go to the ferry. At last we would not recommend this accomodation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your stay. I am sorry that you felt that the outside was not "clean". No other guests have experienced what you are describing. I did accommodate your every request. I even bought a "white" table cloth for you at your specific request. There are many pillows in the house, and we do not leave pillows outside because they mildew from the humidity. When you needed wine glasses, I delivered them within 10 minutes. In the future, if you have specific needs, please contact me before your stay so I can have exactly what you need ready at the time of your arrival. I tried to accommodate your every need, even your early check in at 1:45. It is my pleasure to ensure you have a comfortable stay and that you have everything you need.
