Cotuit, MA Real Estate Listings & Homes for Sale



Myles Standish purchased Cotuit from Paupmunnuck, a leader of the Wampanoag tribe’s Cotachesett village, in 1648. Colonial economic activity consisted of raising cattle and harvesting salt marsh hay, as well as some early shipyards. Cotuit’s name comes from the Wampanoag term for “place of the council.” The village was called “Cotuit Port” until 1872, when it was shortened to the modern “Cotuit.” The village’s oldest standing home is the Josiah Sampson House, built around 1793, which stands off of Main Street, near the center of Cotuit.


Cotuit is one of Barnstable’s seven villages and is among its smallest. It has an area of only about five square miles, though it features 12 miles of coastline. Cotuit has a small commercial zone near its center as well, featuring some local real estate, insurance, and architect’s offices, a public library, restaurant and bar, variety store and grocery coop. The historic Freedom Hall, located near the village green, is used for civic gatherings. Cotuit’s northwestern corner is a sub-village called Santuit. Cotuit Bay, the village’s main body of water, sits east of the village.


Cotuit is a small, quaint village of Barnstable with a year-round population of around 2,600. Despite its
size, Cotuit has a distinct character. The village is home to “Cotuit Skiffs,” a unique design of racing sailboat that has sailed Cotuit Bay for over a century. Cotuit also has its own breed of high-quality, world-renowned oyster. The Cotuit Oyster Company is the oldest oyster brand name in the country and cultivates these oysters, which have a unique flavor as a result of the quality of the water in
which they are raised.


Cotuit is home to the Waldorf School of Cape Cod, an independent school that serves students from preschool through eighth grade. As a village of Barnstable, Cotuit students are otherwise served by the Barnstable Public School system. Elementary school students attend one of the following schools: Centerville Elementary, Barnstable Community Horace Mann Public Charter School, West Village Elementary, Hyannis West Elementary, Barnstable United Elementary, and Barnstable/ West Barnstable Elementary. Barnstable Middle School and Barnstable High School serve middle and high school students, respectively.


Cotuit is home to the Cotuit Center for the Arts, a nonprofit, charitable organization founded in 1993. The Center encourages artistic development and exploration and produces art exhibits, concerts and theatrical productions. Classes and workshops that focus on the visual and performing arts and beyond are held year-round. The Center also features a movie theater that offers free film series, entries
from the Woods Hole Film Festival, and a bar and concession stand. The Cahoon Museum of American Art is a 1775 Georgian Colonial home featuring eight galleries of prominent 19th century American artwork.
