More About Cohasset Real Estate

Cohasset Location

Despite its seaside location and relaxed lifestyle, Cohasset is 25 miles from Boston so commuting by car, train, or commuter boats that leave from the adjoining town of Hingham are all possible. Cohasset is bordered on the west by Hingham, on the east and south by Scituate, on the northwest by Hull, and on the north and northeast by Massachusetts Bay. Cohasset Cove and The Gulf take up a large portion of Cohasset's border with Scituate while Straits Pond divides Cohasset from neighboring Hull. Little Harbor and a number of other brooks and rivers run through the town. Wompatuck State Park also occupies a substantial portion of the southwestern part of town.

Cohasset Recreation

Cohasset offers residents a virtual summer playground with boating, swimming, and a number of outdoor festivals. Three beaches extend along the bay while Cohasset is also home to a yacht club, sailing club and public boat launch in Cohasset harbor. Outdoor enthusiasts take advantage of seasonal activities such as birding, hiking, and biking at Wompatuck State Park and the Whitney and Thayer Woods reservations. Sandy Beach is a private developed barrier beach established in 1917 for recreational use by Cohasset residents. Many families have enjoyed the pristine white sands of this hidden gem for decades. Cohasset also boasts a large commons area with a pond and Sunday concerts at St. Stephen's Church, a tradition that began in 1924.

Cohasset History

Cohasset derives its name from the Algonquian word "Conahasset" meaning "long rocky place." The area was settled in 1670 after Captain John Smith first explored the coast of New England in 1614. The community was featured in "The Witches of Eastwick," "Housesitter," and most recently Disney's "The Finest Hours," where shooting took place at the Cohasset Historical Society's Pratt Building and along Jerusalem Road.
