West Yarmouth house description
This house is located at the end of a cul-de-sac and nestled back into the woods. You'll enjoy the view of a pristine pond surrounded by conservation land. Follow the private path from the house to Horse Pond and enjoy the fresh water. This is the perfect place for young families to play and swim. The water is shallow and clean. If you enjoy salt water, Seagull Beach is just a few miles away. You can come home after a day at the beach and go for a quiet kayak around the pond. Maybe you'll prefer to sit on the deck and enjoy the quiet and the view. The first floor has a bedroom and full bath which is perfect for the grandparents. There is also a small sitting room as well as a large living room. The house has an open floor plan with the kitchen, dining and living room all looking out to the view with large windows. A very large deck spans the back of the house.
Three villages make up the 17 square mile town of Yarmouth Cape Cod: West Yarmouth, Yarmouthport, and South Yarmouth. Each village has a distinctive character formed by over 350 years of history. A community shaped by its seaside heritage, Yarmouth has retained much of historic charm while integrating the present into its surroundings. To gain a true perspective of our town you must stray from the major roadways of Route 6 and 28 that traverse from Hyannis to the West and Dennis to the East. Yarmouth is the second oldest town on Cape Cod, and it is filled with historic charm.
Yarmouth's rich history has grown a Cape Cod seaside community that offers a potpourri of activities for area vacationers. For the outdoor minded, Yarmouth boasts 15 of Cape Cod’s finest fresh and saltwater beaches to laze away the days, 4 golf courses challenging all levels, 14 tennis courts for the more active, and many hiking, and conservation trails. Yarmouth, Cape Cod truly has something for everyone. On the Northside in Yarmouth Port, tree lined historic Route 6A hosts an array antique and craft shops. The Southside along Route 28 offers the hustle and bustle of a summertime resort town, from factory outlet shopping to sea lion shows to the most adventurous mini-golf.
West Yarmouth offers the visitor or resident a variety of family attractions, various lodging establishments, beaches and fine restaurants. West Yarmouth houses the historic Baxter Grist Mill, a 27-hole public golf course, miniature golf trampolines, a small children’s petting zoo, fishing piers, and close proximity to island ferries. In the summer months, ride Yarmouth’s Easy Shuttle along Route 28 to public beaches, downtown Hyannis, local shops and dining establishments. West Yarmouth offers any family or individual traveler a number of exciting things to see and do.
On the north shore is Yarmouthport, arguably the most preserved part of town. The main road in Yarmouthport is historic Route 6A, known as the Old King’s Highway, which parallels the shoreline of Cape Cod Bay. Don’t miss the historic Captain Bangs Hallet House, the Boardwalk at Grey’s beach, the nature trails at the Kelley Chapel or the many fine shops and restaurants. If you are in need of lodging, you will find historic sea captains’ homes that have been converted into beautiful bed and breakfasts. A new addition you most certainly will want to see is the Edward Gorey House, celebrating the life work of this great Yarmouth author and artist.
The South Yarmouth/Bass River village blends the past and present. You will find a driving range, two 18-hole golf courses, boat tours, a windmill dating back to the 1800’s historic homes, and churches. Visit Bass River and experience sand, sun, and all the fun of a Cape Cod stay.
Wherever you choose to explore, you will find hidden treasures of history blended with the family fun that gives Yarmouth its unique charm.

Yarmouth house on pond
Yarmouth house on pond
The property was clean, the person we rented from was lovely, even bringing us flowers for each room. We were close to numerous attractions and went to Seagull Beach, kayaked, visited P Town, restaurants and mini golf. We cooked every night and there was plenty of room to entertain family. We have fond memories. The only negative was a musty smell, but it had been very humid

We very much enjoyed our stay in your home. Everything we could possibly need was provided, making our stay very comfortable. We even managed to boil our first lobsters in the lobster pot you provided and my mother took her first trip out in your kayak! Thanks!
