Small Windmill with restricted/limited hrs of visit. Hardly find other travelers here, good place to spend max 30 mins of time with lovely view of Bass River.

As it wasn't open, we just looked. Couldn't fit more than 4 people in it. Limited hours. Easy to find from off Route 28-just turn on Willow and you'll run into it. Good for a drive by.

What a nice area to walk/jog. Very scenic, beautiful homes nearby and this little area to stop and see Bass River should not be missed while in South Yarmouth!

If you arrive when the docents are present you are taken on a tour of the workings and history of the windmill. From the upstairs window the views up & down the Bass River are lovely. It's well worth having a camera along. On a...More
