September 2011 was our second time at Cottage Grove (9/2010 was our first); and we've booked for June of 2012. All visits were/will be in Cottage 9, the large studio.WONDERFUL fully equipped kitchen, electric stove, full size refrigerator/freezer, spacious sink, microwave and lots of work space! Wood-burning fireplace is awesome! We travel with our Border Collies, so the open roominess of the studio cottage is really nice . . . so is the large deck (good location for their ex-pen when we're outside with them) and BBQ grill. Prices are competitive with any lodging on The Cape; but the amenities simply "blow the others away"! Beaches, fresh seafood shops, restaurants and attractions from Provincetown to Chatham to Hyannis are ALL very close by . . . Cottage Grove is as centrally located on The Cape as it gets.
The cottages are COMFORTABLY rustic with plenty of modern conveniences, with just the right blend of privacy with the potential for social interactions with other guests. If you like to cook like I do, between the kitchen and the BBQ grill, I was in "chef heaven", especailly with all of the local seafood! The wood floors and area rugs made it easier for us to try to keep the cottage neat and as free of sand and dog hair as is possible with the broom and dust pan in the cottage.
For anyone traveling with their pets, please do remember to bring their crates to use in the cottages, some flat sheets to cover the bed(s) and furniture, if the dogs have those "priveleges" and to clean up after them. Cottage Grove is EXTREMELY "pet friendly", and places that welcome pets are getting harder and harder to find.
The fireplace adds a romantic touch, even after 37 years of marriage! <Grin>
If I could, I'd give Cottage Grove at least 6 stars out of 5!
