Property description

A truly 18th century Cape Cod house originally built from ship timbers on Nantucket and floated over by barge to Cape Cod. With its own swimming and boating beach on freshwater Scargo Lake, the setting alone promises a memorable vacation. The property, just under 2 secluded acres, has a 200-foot lakefront with beach, boathouse with bar, kayak, canoe, and Hobie Wave catamaran sailboat. You can in the same day swim in the salt waters of Cape Cod Bay, also in the pristine water of Scargo Lake and still find time to sail around the lake and feed the ducks and swans. Just glance at the reviews below to see why people love to vacation here and often return. Click below for an elaborated description of the house and the Dennis Village area.


The house on Scargo Lake sleeps 6 in 3 air-conditioned bedrooms (an aero bed is provided for additional guests -children and teens love it) and offers a new full kitchen that opens to a charming Revolutionary era dining room with antique furnishings. The fully equipped kitchen has a huge refrigerator, Jennair stove, dishwasher, two sinks and plenty of workspace. All rooms have hardwood floors and quaint wallpaper. There are two bathrooms (one with a tub and one with a new circular shower). Adjacent to the patio, there is an outdoor shower with hot and cold water The house has a 21st century, central air-conditioned addition: a huge second dining room and living room with four skylights and Italian marble floors with a wall of sliding glass doors that open up to an outdoor deck -a perfect place for a family gathering or barbecue (has a propane gas grill). Cable TV and WiFi are provided as are a washer & dryer and a brand new natural gas furnace and four-heating zones for off-season rentals. The 200' lakefront is ideal for outdoor dining. There is a fire pit at the lakefront where families can gather, make music, watch the moonlight on Scargo Lake, and cook around fire.

Scargo Lake is famous for being serene and clean. Only sailboats, canoes, etc. are allowed. The lakefront is so quiet that one can often hear beach-goers playing at the public beach on the other side of the lake, half a mile away. CC Bay beaches (Howes and Corporation) are a 15-20 minute walk (or a 2-minute drive), so one can swim in the bay and rinse off in Scargo Lake’s crystal clear water. Mayflower beach is less than 5 minutes drive away. The lakefront has 3 entrances into the water for swimming, one a sandy beach that is great for children as it is shallow for a considerable distance before the water deepens. The lake is also excellent for sailing, canoeing or kayaking and tenants may use the Hobie Wave Catamaran sailboat, kayak, or canoe (life jackets in the boathouse-mandatory). Bass and trout fishing, including fly-fishing and ice fishing, make the lake a year-round fishing paradise. The boathouse has a bar with bar stools and large windows right on the lake.

Owner requires a phone conversation with prospective tenants before there is
any rental agreement.

The house is located off 6A in Dennis Village, a village unchanged since the 1950s. Although set back from the road and secluded by dense vegetation, the house is easily within walking distance of the village. The property is a short walk (5-15 minutes) from the Cape Playhouse (world famous off-Broadway theater), Cape Cinema ('art' films, not commercial fare), Cape Cod Art Museum (well worth a visit -Cape artists), local restaurants (many excellent, some exceptional) and the center of town (a gazebo). A large shopping mall is a ten-minute drive to Patriot Square. The area also has great hiking and biking trails. The reviews that follow below confirm that people love to vacation at the house on Scargo Lake, as will you.
