We stayed at Capt Gosnold’s village for a week in June just before high season and the place was surprisingly quiet because the week after we were there the prices doubled. Our cottage was a one bedroom cottage with a very nice sitting room/ kitchen and a small but perfectly adequate bathroom.
The cottage was covered with knick-knacks which we had to move to “higher ground” given we had our toddler with us. We had a nice patio with BBQ as well. All considered the accommodation was very good – homely would be a good description. We only had neighbours for 2 nights and we could hear them but nothing which was too intrusive. I think they probably got the short end of the stick with our early starts with our daughter (sorry guys if you are reading this but I don’t think we were too noisy).
There is a little playground which our daughter loved and a number of beach toys and paraphernalia that the owners were more than happy for us to borrow. They really were very pleasant and accommodating folk. They also have lobster pots etc which you can borrow to cook your seafood. The pool wasn’t open which was a shame – they were starting to get it ready for the season when we were there; but to be honest it wasn’t too much of a disappointment as we were out and about all the time.
You have an allocated parking space for your unit. If you can’t be bothered to cook then a number of local restaurants will deliver.
All in all we had a great time and we would go back. Hyannis was a great base for us given its location as it was our first trip to Cape Cod. Hyannis may not be the most glamorous of settings but a) it is mid cape so ideal for exploring both ends and b) we did feel that a number of other places were somewhat “precious” or in modern parlance: up themselves….
Not sure we would want to pay full season rates; but that is more about the Cape in general than Captain Gosnold’s.
