This village, surrounded by Cotuit, Centerville, Barnstable and West Barnstable, is without direct ocean access except via Prince’s Cove, far inland. Settled in the mid-1600s, there was a fulling mill and weaving operation along today’s Marstons Mills River. Today, this largely residential community features many cranberry bogs, lakes and kettle ponds as part of its glacial outwash plain, such as Mystic Lake and Middle and Hamblins Ponds, but no salt water beaches. This verdant village is home to Cape Cod’s only grass airport, the circa 1929 Cape Cod Airfield, where bi-plane rides are offered. The 18-hole Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Golf Course, sits on the site of an old fairgrounds. The pleasing village center, clustered around Main Street, Lovell’s Lane and River Road, offers quaint shops, restaurants and service shops. Burgess Park and its herring run provide enjoyment for residents and visitors as does the disc golf located there. A lovely pond located at Falmouth Road and Route 149, replete with a long-term resident swan pair, is charming year round.
