Hamilton House Cape Cod
This custom contemporary Cape Cod home was designed to offer total privacy in its one outrageous guest room. It is spacious, romantic, and very private. It is the perfect location to ask the big question, spend your honeymoon, anniversary or birthday. For those used to beautiful settings, this spot is the perfect place to base yourself for a week of hiking, biking, sightseeing, swimming, boating or just well deserved R&R.
A wonderful horse farm with boarding for your horse is a little over two miles away. We can arrange your horse's stay and a multitude of wonderful trails are near by. Don't have your own horse, we have packages that include guided trail rides.
The guest space, the "Carriage Suite on the Cape", is over the garage and accessed by its own private entrance. Situated on an acre of natural Cape Cod land, a 450 foot meandering path leads to the shore of Ashumet Pond. Although Massachusetts calls every freshwater body of water a pond, most would think this is a lake. It covers 204 acres, almost a mile across, and 76 feet deep on the deep side. Luckily, the shoreline is a very gradually sloping sandy beach, with water so clear, guests have a perfect view of the life below. The setting is tranquil, like being "On Golden Pond."
Your hosts, Innkeeper Barbara Notarius, and husband, Steven Lefton, relocated to Mashpee in 2006. For 25 years, Barbara ran an eight guestroom inn, The Alexander Hamilton House in Croton-on-Hudson, New York. She calls Ashumet Pond, "The land time forgot." Swim in the pond from May thru October and boat there until almost November. Bring your boat. There is a boat launch a short distance away and enjoy kayaking, sailing or a small motor boat.
We are a few minutes from the Barnstable County Fair Grounds which hosts many events throughout the year. Mashpee is only a fifteen minute drive from the Bourne Bridge, conveniently located between Sandwich and Falmouth. This area is called the Upper Cape, with easy access to the entire Cape and near to the ferries that travel to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. New Seabury, Mashpee's Atlantic Ocean Beach is a short drive from our home. Routes 6 or 28 are an easy hop to mid-Cape or the Beaches at the National Seashore.
Our Mashpee bed & breakfast offers three guest rooms on Cape Cod. All are spacious, romantic, and private.
The B&B is the perfect location to ask your special lady the big question, spend your honeymoon, anniversary or birthday. For those used to beautiful settings, this spot is the perfect home base for a week of hiking, biking, sightseeing, swimming, boating or just well deserved R&R.
We Love Our Fuzzy Friends! We are a dog friendly B&B. That said, if you don't take the dog with you, we provide a crate for dog with you when you leave the room. We have a large kennel down by the shore so that you can leave the dog safely behind while you are on or in our pond. If the dog barks and will disturb others, you will be asked to keep the dog with you. Should you take your dog to a public beach (not permitted April 1 through September), keep these rules in mind. Between October 1 and April 1st, dogs are usually permitted at the Beaches. They must be leashed at all times. You must be careful not to let them disturb people, nesting birds or stranded seals. The Endangered Species Act protects the piping plover and you are likely to be reported, caught and fined should your dog do this. Pooper-scooper bags are usually found at trail heads. Make sure to clean-up after your dog. Dog waste can contaminate sensitive shellfish beds. Cape Cod takes this very seriously. On our property, we ask you to do the same. If you don't have bags, just ask us.
There is a wonderful horse farm less than 3 miles down the road. Should you travel with your horse, ask for boarding arrangements. There are wonderful trail through which to ride and, in winter, you can ride on beaches, too.
