Compass Rose Cottage

Welcome to COMPASS ROSE COTTAGE - The Quintessential Cape Cod Cottage

Ideally located on a quiet street steps away from Flax Pond, and just over 2 miles to Mayflower Beach, plus convenient to all that Dennis and the Cape have to offer. Decorated with local art and pottery, along with antique pieces discovered in the area, this charming cottage is the perfect Cape Cod getaway.

A great traditional knotty pine cottage with inviting living areas highlighted with vaulted wood beamed ceilings, it is appointed with a fully equipped retro kitchen with breakfast bar seating and skylight.

The inviting living room space is bright and airy, and has a sleeper sofa with full size bed. There is a dining table for 4, and an additional sitting area to relax in.

The two cozy bedrooms are also tongue and groove pine panelled; one with a full bed, the other with a twin bed. The comfy nook in the sunroom, with antique daybed equipped with custom mattress and box spring, is a wonderful spot to curl up with a good book, or to sleep the night away.

The cottage has one full bath with stall shower, a 32 Inch Hi Def TV , Cable, High Speed WIFI, gas BBQ grill, wood shed with beach supplies, 2 bicycles, and 2 kayaks, and an outdoor deck with a dining area where you can sit back and enjoy.

There is a window air conditioner and tower room fans if needed, and a wonderful cross-breeze that usually comes through the many windows of the cottage.

A private outdoor shower with hot and cold water and separate changing area provides the perfect experience after a day at the beach.

The nearby beaches are perfect for young and old alike. Splash around in the bay beaches at high tide or explore the miles of tidal pools at low tide.

You can also choose to walk around the corner to secluded Flax Pond (cottage has deeded beach rights), which provides a nice alternative to sunny days at the ocean. You’ll love being able to kayak, canoe, sail a sunfish, swim, or float the day away, in the shady calm warm water Flax Pond provides. Take a relaxing walk through the miles of nature trails that surround Flax Pond, and discover the second small sandy beach on the other side of the pond.

Dennis offers 16 beaches including Cape Cod Bay, Nantucket Sound, and numerous freshwater ponds. There are 2 championship golf courses, and a charming village with many quaint shops, restaurants, ice cream parlor, library, The Cape Playhouse, Cape Cinema, art galleries, and museums, all located a few minutes away on historic Route 6A.

And let's not forget Captain Frosty's, one of Cape Cod's best seafood shacks, just a short walk outside the neighborhood, for some delicious fried seafood and chowder, or for a sweet ice cream treat!

We feel you’ll agree that Compass Rose Cottage is the perfect place to create your wonderful Cape Cod memories.
