Great family escape to a three bedroom cottage in the dunes above LeCount Hollow Beach on the Cape Cod National Seashore.
I am writing because I saw a dated review (2006) that slammed the cottage where we stayed. It may be that the cottages have been updated, that they are being serviced better, or that the previous reviewer was looking for a high-end experience versus a cottage experience but we a great experience.
There are other cottages close by but we had an absolutely beautiful view with a lovely breeze. It was a short walk to the water through the dunes. The ocean tides can be rough and the water is colder than the bay side but there is much to enjoy if you love the ocean. The seals frequent the beach so watch out for sharks if there are seals in the water (there was a report of 5 great white sharks the week we were there). Our family spent quiet nights playing games, cooking out, and going to the local establishments for food and drink. The last night we drove to Provincetown to take in the sights and a last dinner together. Great general store with excellent coffee just down the road.
This is a cottage experience, not a hotel. We found it to be a great escape.
