This charming, waterfront cottage sits on private Sagamore Beach in Sandwich, Massachusetts complete with a path through the dunes. The cottage has 4 bedrooms (one king, 2 queens and one bedroom with a twin-over-full bunk bed). The updated kitchen features new cabinetry and all stainless steel appliances. Since most of summer living is done outside, this home features a wide, 35-foot long deck and private sand basin for little tykes. Surrounded by dunes, the deck is a private, picturesque retreat. 

From the beach you can see the Cape Cod Canal to the right and the White Cliffs of Plymouth to the left. The cottage resides on a dead end road open to residents and guests only. It is perfect for walking or riding your bike to the canal to watch the ships come in. Find sea glass on the beach and make new memories. Whether the tide is low or high, this private beach will truly make you feel like you have found paradise.
