"The Mermaid House Experience" AT "The Onset Beach Compound - Cape Cod Vacation Resort"


    The Mermaid House is a cottage built on-top of ceder trees 6 feet above the beach/ocean and roughly 30 feet inside of the oceans sea shore. The house "Grand Fathers" the wetland laws preventing development 150 feet from the shoreline by nearly 100 years. Today it is the venue of choice for many seeking elegant modern luxuries "At the beach". Many of our guests are here for vacation, but many are professionals utilizing our unique spaces for photo and videography amongst other industries. 

The Details: This house is built .02 miles from all local bars and fun window shopping any tourist could dream of. It is also less than a mile away from the Cape Cod Canal and the documented BEST striped bass fishing in the world. The resort has an 8 person hot tub that is maintained by on-resort staff almost daily. All within view of our private beach and the areas only 12 month boat ramp that provides not only an amazing view but direct access to one of Bostons largest shell fish fisheries. Cant get any fresher than off one of these boats.The resort is also home to "The Givers Gains" Yacht of which guests can charter trips aboard. In the winter the village provides the luxury of scheduled spa days at "Tarra Dean Studio". Clever spouses have been able to create amazing get-aways utilizing such.

The Bottom Line:  This house NEVER disappoints when it comes to a GOOD TIME. With so much luxury and amazing views out the 6 foot tall by 30 foot wide wall of glass one would assume it to be a good place to relax or enjoy a romantic get-away.

The house can sleep 8 people comfortable.
