Woods Hole, Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Sitting directly on Oyster Pond with a view of Vineyard Sound, tucked away on a private wooded peninsula, this 1930s summer home radiates charm and comfort with its own dock, two rowboats (with sails), a large canoe, and 2 kayaks. Oyster Pond (actually a half-mile-wide deep water lake) is ideal for swimming and fishing -- the water is warmer than the nearby ocean, and many a kid has caught his or her first fish from the dock.

The lake and yard are filled with wildlife from hummingbirds to turtles, osprey, swans, ducks, geese, gulls, cormorants, and heron.

For cool evenings enjoy a roaring fire in the huge fieldstone fireplace -- we supply firewood.

There are four bedrooms: three off the living room, one with full bed and private ba...

About the neighbourhood
Woods Hole is a mecca for scientists, kids -- an artsy, cultured community. The landscape is different from the outer Cape -- a bit more rugged, the ocean is much warmer from the Gulf Stream, up to 75 F by the end of July! Spectacular live map of ocean currents and temps: http://is.gd/3IxRuT.
