For a truly private weekend Cottage Bog offers an escape from the bustle of the city by hiding itself in 30 acres of Cape Cod forest. The venue has its own private lake and cranberry bog, connected by grass lawns. Guests will arrive to the venue on a private road that winds its way along a cranberry bog before arriving at the open field, cottage and lake. Couples can setup cocktail hour by the lake's edge and let guests watch sun set over the distant edge of their private forest reserve before heading to the nearby tent for a reception of dinner and dancing. The deep reds of the forest in the fall provide the perfect ceremony backdrop against the walls of New England forest. For ceremony sites, couples can also use the backdrop of the lake or choose a more purely forest theme and have a ceremony in one of the ancient oak forests alcoves of grass along the edge of the lawn.

Located in Brewster on Cape Cod, couples guests have access to the all the hotels, beaches and small villages of nearby Cape Cod. Brewsters North and South beaches are only a ten minute drive from the cottage itself, and even closer to many of the local accommodations where guests can stay.
