Restaurant
“This is a local institution for seafood of all kinds. The bar is a favorite waterhole for many local fishermen, and it often has live music. There's a no frills dining room, but the best part is the roof deck for drinks, music, and a more limited pub menu than in the main dining room. Haddad's is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see Haddad's on the right, after the strip of stores and the laundromat.”

“This is a cool beach bar that has good food and drinks and live entertainment. The locals hang here a lot. Just be aware that on weekends after 9pm they have live bands and it gets loud so if you are looking for a quiet place don't go when the bands are playing. The Jetty is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see The Jetty on the left, about halfway down the Esplanade.”

Lodging
“If you feel like taking a drive, go over to Humarock to this scenic spot on the river. The restaurant is run by the Polcari family of Boston's North End fame and the food is top notch. They have pizza, seafood, Italian specialties and good old American beef and chicken. They even have gluten-free items.”

“This is one of our favorite restaurants. Liz thinks it has the most creative and flavorful dishes in town. The view and the ambiance can't be beat. The Fairview is .8 miles from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, walk through the center and stay to the left, up the "High Road" (which is Ocean St. - just follow the seawall). The Fairview will be at the top of the hill on your right.”

Bar
“This is a local watering hole that is famous for its Greek style pizza. There is keeno in the bar and lots of TVs for sports fans. They have an extensive menu with everything from dinners to submarine sandwiches. It can get loud with all the people, music and TVs, but it's a fun place to hang. At night they often have DJs or live music. The Venus is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door, toward Brant Rock Center. Walk down to The Esplanade in Brant Rock Center, and you'll see The Venus on the right, after the strip of stores and the laundromat, and before the Hop restaurant.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“This is a small supermarket but it's pretty full-service for its size. It's won awards for best meat and deli department and they make their own bread. They open early to cater to the fishing crowd and you grab a quick coffee and a ready made breakfast sandwich. They are famous for their broasted chicken and potato wedges. The Market is about a 5 minute walk from Heart Song Cottage. Take a right out of our front door towards Brant Rock Center. Take a right at the end of our street and you'll see the market on the right, after The Comfort Station.”

“This is another excellent restaurant but it also stays open a tad later than the ones in Duxbury. It has a large wrap-around bar and it's friendly while being "classy" unlike a sports-bar. ”
