Local amenities were good and touring around Cape Cod was easy except 3rd & 4th July which was obviously going to be a bit busier all round. We stayed local and joined in the celebrations .....even though we're from England.

The cottage is picture perfect inside and equipped with everything you could need to feel right at home. My son enjoyed the canoe and fishing on the pond.We truly had a great time and this gem on Pimlico Pond is a place we would love to return to.
