About Kathy Sherbrooke

I am a writer, and this house is used as a writers retreat in the off season, but I hope your family will enjoy for a perfect week on the beach!

Kathy Sherbrooke purchased this house in 2015

Why Kathy Sherbrooke chose SE Massachusetts & Buzzard's Bay

My philosophy is that when you are on vacation you should have beds, sheets and towels, pots and pans, and furniture to lounge in that is at least as good as what you have at your own home. This house has serious character and old-world charm (built in 1900) but has been fully updated for your enjoyment. You won't be disappointed.

What makes this house unique

Original hardwood floors and an 8-foot stone fireplace will transport you to another era. Wood paneling in the dining room and an expansive deck make gathering with those you love as easy as pulling up a chair. If anyone in your group needs to get work done while away, the bonus room on the 2nd floor is set up as an office and offers quiet and privacy (also great for a pack'n'play or blow up bed). Driveway to fit 3+ cars (parking in Onset can be a challenge)

A Gorgeous and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning! It is much more tastefully decorated than any other beach rental that we've stayed at.

We are an extended family of 6 adults and 3 toddlers, and we had plenty of space. The little ones loved the circular floor plan and the adults enjoyed lazy afternoons on the porch.Our family likes to cook, so we made the most of the roomy, well-equipped kitchen. The seating, beds, and pillows were all extremely comfortable for lounging around, snoozing and reading. Kathy has an amazing selection of reading material, a veritable library! All of this is just a quick walk to lovely Onset Beach. Thanks, Kathy, for a wonderful week.

We wholeheartedly recommend this vacation rental!

Close To Everything

  • 5 of 5

This is the only 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house we could find, and it is perfect for this area. Two minutes walk to the beach in one direction, and two minutes walk into the center of town in the other direction. We have stayed here two years in a row, and hope to come back next year.

We loved this house. The house is beautifully renovated and decorated (as pictured). It's more spacious than it appears in the pictures. It is also very close to the beach, downtown and a fun playground for kids. We have stayed at other houses in the Onset/Wareham area and this one is the best so far.

Absolutely perfect, beautifully decorated, family-friendly home

  • 5 of 5

Family-friendly Pottery Barn at the beach! The house is absolutely charming. We were in town for my sister's wedding, and my husband and I stayed here very comfortably with our 2 year old (who LOVED the bunk bed room), our 1 year old, and my 60-something parents. Stairs to the bedrooms would be a little challenging if someone has difficulty with stairs (all bedrooms are upstairs), but they were fine for our family - just had to keep an eye on our kids and keep them from climbing. The "extras" meant so much, including the wagon that my parents used to take the kids to the nearby playground when we all needed some post-wedding downtime. We didn't have a chance to explore the area much, since we were busy with wedding festivities, but it looked really cute! Plenty of room for our crew - my folks were fine with using the bathroom downstairs off the kitchen. Linens were high quality. Kitchen was well stocked. THANK YOU!!!

Great beach town, and wonderfully decorated house!

  • 5 of 5

Well decorated and updated beach house in close walking distance to the beautiful Onset Beach area. The owner was easy to work with, allowed us to check in a few hours early, and our entire group had a wonderful experience. We had 2 couples, one 1.5yr old, and a Grandma in the house. Kid friendly home, nice bedroom with "writing room/office off one bedroom - ideal for a sleeping baby!" AC units in the windows, great porch, and outdoor shower, grill, etc. Everything we needed for a great Cape Cod week. Thanks!
