|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Ours is a small house with blue trim and Cape shingles, and it's very close to the beach/ocean: you can walk to the beach in minutes. It's a cozy spot for unwinding, reading, relaxing, and getting away from the hustle of everyday life. The house is comfortable, clean, and well cared for; with carpeted floors, and the kitchen was remodeled recently. Downstairs includes the kitchen, a living room, and a half-bath with a washer and a dryer. There's a deck off the kitchen that is perfect for grilling (gas grill provided) and picnics. Upstairs is a full bath and two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and you can see, smell, and hear the ocean from this room; we even have a rocking chair placed in front of the window that look out onto the beach. The second bedroom has a bunkbed with a full-sized lower bed and a twin on top; this will sleep two comfortably, or three if it's kids or a couple on the bottom. We have tons of adult/ kids books for lending. Lots of kids toys, including beach items like boogie boards and beach chairs
Family Friendly Fun: This is a perfect spot for a family, since everything you need is right there, and there's no need to leave the Brant Rock Beach area. There's a wide beach with a jetty for kids to explore, and there are several restaurants--
within walking distance, excellent resturants.
Staying in works too!: Would you rather cook? We have a fully equipped kitchen--everything you would find in your kitchen at home. Brant Rock market, a grocery store with a bakery and a deli, is also 5 minutes away on foot, and a great seafood/fresh fish store is right across Ocean Street. We have a deck with a great gas grill where you can relax. We have internet access, as well as a small selection of dvds you can watch while you visit. Tons of books to read and kids toys. Lots of beach items too!
You will see that the house is well loved. Our family has owned the house for over 12 years. We purchased it as a beautiful place to vacation, and to be close to family. It is so much more. Our children have grown up with the appreciation and wonder of ocean life--they often turn over rocks to find all kinds of creatures, and the climb all over the huge rocks on the Jetty. We have met so many welcoming and kind people who both visit and live year round. This house is nested in a strong neighborhood-- that puts on a wonderful 4th of July fireworks show every year, just for fun. Our beach was featured in the movie "Way, Way Back." Since we love the beach and the comfort of this home, we thought we should share it with others. That is why we decided to start renting this cosy cottage. We want to welcome you to join in the fun.
This is our home. It is loved and well cared for; if you appreciate a clean, comfortable and homey cottage, this is great for you.
However, if you are planning to have a bash/party by the beach, please look somewhere else. We love our neighbors and our home. Our neighbors also like us, so much so that they let us know when our renters do not respect our home.
comfortable and safe neighborhood environment; friendly, light hearted and welcoming beach community.
Enjoyed our stay and a great relaxing space for everyone!
Comfortable home for a family to relax and enjoy the ocean scenery! Lots of beautiful rocks to find with the kids along the shore!
We enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners were easily accessible. We would reccomend this property. You could easily walk to the local restaurants and shops and the ocean.
My family - two adults, two kids, and a baby - had a wonderful time staying at this house. The home had everything we needed (laundry facilities, well-appointed kitchen, comfortable beds, rocking chair with an ocean view). We could hear the ocean at night from our rooms with the windows open. I will also mention that when closed, the windows kept the sounds of our neighbors out very well. An unexpected surprise was how many places there were to eat within walking distance. We had a great breakfast almost every morning at a diner that was a two-minute walk away (next door to an ice-cream shop), and Haddad's, a well-known seafood restaurant, was about a three-minute walk. The kids loved walking on the beach, climbing out on the jetty, and checking out the tide pools - they were enchanted to find a rainbow squid in addition to the usual snails, fish, birds, and shells.
Our five-year-old's review: "It has two bedrooms, and it also has a bunkbed for children. There's also a grown-up bed that isn't a bunkbed. So that's all I can think of. See you next time!"
Our seven-year-old's review: "Very comfortable. Small and delightful. Welcoming. Good place to stay. If you have a big family, it might not be as comfortable. But if you have any amount of babies, it would be fine. But not too many children."
We discovered the South Shore of Massachusetts, all from this lovely location. We found all we needed for a delightful, peaceful, interesting week right in Marshfield and its nearby towns.
I've lived year-round on Cape Cod, but now I prefer a week at Brant Rock. In 5 words: No Crowds! No Bridge Traffic!
We stayed a week in late July, 2011, and are a middle-aged couple with young adult daughter who took off work for a week to join us. The two-floor, two rooms, beds (up to 5), two bathrooms, washer-dryer and good parking all made it all very comfortable for our two generations of adults. This would certainly also be a great house with younger children.
Since a bus comes to Brant Rock from Boston, I'm checking off that it *could* be done without a car. We drove and had private parking alongside the house for 1 or 2 cars.
Brant Rock is peaceful and family-friendly, with magnificent and sweeping ocean views, l80 degrees. There's an historic feel to it that we enjoyed very much in the nearby homes, although this one is modern and up-to-date.
Lots of places say "steps to the beach" but in this case, it's true. The town shops made a great food-buying experience (freshest fish, ever!). We did some home-cooking as well as restaurants. This kitchen is equipped to make a real family meal, if you wish that.
Places we visited and enjoyed (aside from Brant Rock): Plymouth MA (Cap'n John's WhaleWatching trip - amazing! plenty of whales and dolphins!), a modern harbor at Scituate, MA with historic lighthouse, the Daniel Webster home in Marshfield, and as happened that week: the annual agricultural fair in Marshfield.
Since we love music, we went out some evenings for a blues-rock cafe with dancing (I think it was in Weyland, MA), an Irish brunch with live musicians on a Sunday morning.
We found a do-able walking-hike at a big state beach seaside just south of Plymouth. We also spent time on beach chairs at "home" in Brant Rock, enjoying the peaceful sounds and sights. At the Brant Rock beach, we saw some people doing scuba activity and young families enjoying wind-surfing. Had we wanted to, we could've also taken a ferry boat from Plymouth to Provincetown (tip of the Cape), or driven right over the bridge, but I was glad to avoid Cape traffic yet enjoy everything I love about Cape Cod right here.
Attentive hosts, perfect communication. A cared-for house, lovely couple. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!
The location was fantastic for a great "Cape Cod Feel" vacation. We walked into town for our cranberry muffins, walked out onto the jetty to experience the Atlantic at its fullest and relaxed in a great house.
The house was extremely clean, very comfortable, nicely decorated and had all of the sights, sounds and smells of a beach cottage. I would recommend this house to anyone.
Our house is just off the sea wall at Brant Rock Beach in Marshfield; Brant Rock is a great beach with a friendly atmosphere - it is protected, safe, gorgeous, and perfect for families; often you see people scuba diving, sea kayaking, fishing, sailing, or exploring on the jetty. The community has a Cape-like feel, but without the traffic or the congestion. It's only 30 miles south of Boston, and on a clear day you can see both the city and Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod, over the water. Brant Rock is a hidden jewel that you will be glad to discover. The real joy of Brant Rock is that you don't need to drive anywhere once you're there; our cottage has parking, and your car will stay right where you leave it while you take leisurely, short walks to anything you want or need.
Want to eat out? Opportunities abound, from breakfast specialists to burger places to delicious (and moderately priced!) seafood restaurants, all within a few minutes' walk.
