About Half Penny

Spend your summer vacation between Ocean View Drive and the sandy dune beach shoreline of Lecount Hollow beach !

Here you're a short 150 yard walk to the wide open ocean beach. Looking out eastwards over the Atlantic, nature has its way of letting you know that you're at the grand ocean. It's a notable distinction compared to a pond, bay, or marsh setting. Ramble down a tucked away path to Lecount Hollow beach by Maguire's Landing and stroll along a quintessential Cape Cod beach that runs for miles. Catch an incredible sunrise coming up over the easterly ocean horizon. At the end of the day, you can sit on the outdoor deck and enjoy the water view.

The home is literally inside the boundaries of the Cape Cod National Seashore, one of our great National Parks. The land's natural beauty will remain a gem since it is protected from further development after earning Park status in 1961 by presidential decree.

The beauty can also be enjoyed by biking or walking along The Cape Cod Rail Trail. The trailhead entrance is about 3/4 mile down the road from the cottage. Formerly a railroad route, this path runs through the Cape for 22 miles and offers excellent biking and walking.

The home is on Nellie Road, on a relatively secluded one block stretch between breathtaking Ocean View Drive and the shoreline, along with only a handful of neighboring homes. Directly across the street, as well as the land to the west are undeveloped woodland areas. In addition to this 3 bedroom home, the 2 bedroom house next door is available for vacation rental and might be available to be booked together for those planning a larger group.
