The Barnstable

Oceanfront Cottage

$1,720/wk + tax

The Barnstable sits on a hill that overlooks the ocean and has a beautiful view from its large front porch. The Barnstable is set back from the shore on the highest point of land in Flood's Cove. It has a commanding 180 degree view of the ocean with the American Flag in the foreground. As with many of the homes in Flood's Cove, there is a large, full length, covered porch where you can sit back, rock and dine with your friends and family all the while you have a picturesque view of the ocean that opens before you. The watchword of Flood's Cove is to be informal and enjoy yourself.

The front lawn is very large and provides a wonderful place to play games and relax with your family. Many a croquet game has been played on this lawn.

Upon entering the Barnstable from the large porch you find a large common room that contains the living room, dining room and easy sitting area with a massive center field stone fireplace. Once the native rocks that make up the very large fireplace heat up, it keeps the entire area cozy and warm. There is also a supplemental propane heater that helps keep the Barnstable warm in the early spring or late fall. There is a large country kitchen that is fully equipped. There is a large table in the great room that can accommodate 8-10 people.

There is also a first floor bedroom with a queen bed, a half bath and a separate work area that has been used as a painting and drawing area.

You ascend to the second floor via a large staircase that can be accessed from two locations on the first floor. Once on the second floor you find yourself facing a full bath and four very large bedrooms. The bedrooms located in the front of the Barnstable have a full view of the ocean. The four upstairs bedrooms contains two queen beds and four single beds.

The large chimney for the center fireplace runs directly through the second floor to the roof. The Barnstable is also on the head of the walking trail that takes you to the second swimming area, large rocks that you can lay out on and enjoy the sun or walk to the tidal clam flats.

If you need a large, spacious and beautiful place to vacation the Barnstable is for you!
