Wow! We stayed three nights, September 23-26, 2008, in Cottage 2A, a one-bedroom cottage that was absolutely wonderful, as well as very clean. There was a large private deck with two lounge chairs, umbrella table with four chairs, and a gas grill. The deck faced into Captain Gosnold Village with a pleasant view of the other cottages and lovely landscaping. The living room, breakfast bar and kitchen were spacious and airy—quintessential Cape Cod. The living room included a comfy sofa, an overstuffed chair and ottoman, a coffee table, end tables and a large TV. The kitchen provided everything you would need including a small 4-burner stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, tea kettle, plates, cutlery, glassware, pots & pans and cooking implements. The breakfast bar with two chairs divided the kitchen and living room. Down the hallway was a spacious knotty wood-paneled bedroom with a generous closet, deacon’s bench, large dresser, and a bed that seemed larger than a double. Linens were very soft and cozy. The bathroom was somewhat small with a tiny shower stall. The shower was our only complaint; it was the smallest we’ve been in with the exception of an RV shower. There was plenty of shelf and closet storage in the hallway outside the bathroom, and lovely decorations throughout the cottage. Two good-sized fans were provided for air circulation. The thermostat-controlled electric heat was handy to take the chill off the autumn evenings. We agree that Captain Gosnold Village is “Cape Cod’s best kept secret”. It is truly a gem, located close to the beach and Hyannis harbor, as well as many of Cape Cod’s wonders. It was the perfect home-base for exploring up and down the Cape. We learned that each cottage is individually owned as a condo. Thus, the character of each cottage may be very different. We couldn’t have been happier with 2A, except for the shower. Mom and daughter managers Jill and Lexy were friendly and very helpful. NOTE: There is a $10/day housekeeping gratuity charge, in addition to the room/cottage rate. This is done in lieu of leaving tips for housekeeping. Given the scope and size of the cottage, this seemed entirely reasonable to us.
