As grandparents, we want to encourage our 6 year old grand-daughter to enjoy bicycle riding, so we decided to take her and her mom on a quick trip to the Cape Cod Rail Trail during some nice spring weather. What better place to stay than in your own cottage (the Wagonshed) - only a very short forested trail to the bike rail trail! We had one morning when the weather did not cooperate (rainy, cold) but that was happily spent playing board games in our cottage living room, making hot tea in our own kitchen. Other than that, we could literally go out the door, be on the bike rail trail and ride (for miles). Also, a 5 min car drive away was the Salt Pond Visitor center from which we rode our bikes to the ocean and another 5-10 mins car ride away was Marconi Beach for an afternoon of chasing waves. The cottage is kept incredibly clean and compact - which was fine for the 4 of us (3 adults and 1 child). My daughter and grand-daughter slept comfortably on the pullout sofa bed and we had the bedroom. The owner (Sally) is VERY helpful and pleasant if you need anything at all. It was early spring so we didn't need the grill and picnic table out front but the clothesline out back came in handy after we got wet chasing those waves! As did the shuffleboard right near our cottage that came in handy keeping my grand-daughter busy. This is the kind of place my husband and I love - reminds us of the 1950's with all the friendliness and character of that time. Reasonably priced too, to have your 'own little place' - there is also a motel too with a 'common room'. All in all, a great place.
