Barnstable estate description

We invite you to enter a peaceful bygone era to experience the summer home of your dreams! Imagine yourself enwrapped by sun and sea, and brushed by the gentle breezes of summer as they rustle through a feathery forest of yellow-groove bamboo. Let go of life's usual stresses and inhale the ever-changing vistas of Barnstable Harbor, and the character of Cape Cod's sand bars, dunes, and beach grasses! How long has it been since you fled the cement courtyards and swimming pools of sterile motel units and spread out over 5 acres of beautiful waterfront property! Our spacious home with charming guest house is designed for families and groups of adults to enjoy large common rooms, as well as separate sleeping spaces for that afternoon nap for less than the cost of a hotel or motel room and with many more features. We are able to accommodate up to 5 couples,10 guests in all, with a few single beds for young children to stay in the same room with parents. We offer a private boathouse with deck, nestled at the bottom of a grassy staircase by the water’s edge, our own private pebble & sandy beach, over 1,000 feet of private beach, and kayaks which you may use to paddle to the serene sandbars at low tide. Designed by a world famous architect for relaxed country living, this renovated home offers untold privacy, idyllic peace and quiet, and convenient access to all the tourist attractions that Cape Cod has to offer. Greet the early sunrise of summer as it rises over the harbor looking to the east, and later admire the brilliant sunset of a long summer evening as it sets over the estuaries looking to the west! We invite you to come stay at Harborlights and add another page of enchanted memories to the summer scrapbook of your heart!
