Cohasset, less than 25 miles south of Boston, is the quintessential small New England coastal town, noted for its quaint harbor with an active lobster fleet, sandy beach and historic village green. Once visited, you will never forget its breathtaking beauty. When Captain John Smith discovered "Quonahasset" in 1614, he described it as "a paradise of all these parts." It has remained so for more than three centuries. Carved out of a rugged stretch of New England coast, the "long rocky place" of the early Algonquin Indian settlers is today a community recognized for its tranquil beauty and pristine elegance.

The vibrant village area near the picturesque harbor offers a wide variety of shops and fine dining.
