Attractions Within Walking Distance
Lowell Park (baseball games)
Loop Beach is the favored swimming beach with lifeguards and bathrooms. You can walk along the beach or drive to Oregon Beach, to the end of Main Street. Oregon Beach is great for shell collecting, fishing, and watching the sun rise. On a clear day, you may be able to see Martha's Vineyard across the Bay! Riley's Beach is smaller, but a great spot to put a kayak in to paddle to Sampson's Island. Rope's Beach has a nice beach for younger kids and it is fun to watch others taking sail boating lessons. At low tide, you can walk to the left of the beach up to the point. So peaceful!

About the owner: We have enjoyed restoring many houses with our family during our life, but by far, 'Anchor Drop' has been the most fun and rewarding! We have made many happy memories here and we are so pleased to offer it to our wonderful guests to make their own memories. We have had all five-star reviews in the past two years and our expectation is that you have the same experience. We are confident that you will love the peaceful setting, beautiful pool, spacious house, private bathrooms in each bedroom, and more! 'Anchor Drop' is our only rental and it is a labor of love to assure that it is in great shape before your arrival or if any concerns arise during your stay.
Why this property? Why have some guests made 'Anchor Drop' their annual vacation spot? The safety of the gated pool is appreciated by parents. Cotuit is an excellent location - such a peaceful, friendly village away from the Cape crowds, with easy access to other locations. 'Anchor Drop' is a great house to invite grandparents along - one bedroom that opens to the deck is on the opposite side of the house and is very private.
