Thank you for your interest in the Simpson Cottage!
This 1930's cottage is a throwback to old Cape Cod and has been enjoyed by my family since then. It's been described as a real 'Summer of '42' cottage if you've seen the movie. Sandy feet and wet towels are really no big deal.
With five bedrooms and 1.5 baths, it can accommodate a large family and is great for kids. The maximum occupancy is 10 people. There is plenty of room to spread out, with an eat-in kitchen, large living room, front porch, and a spot to lay out in the sun on the side of the house.
The house sits about 100 yards from a semi-private sand beach (shared with other houses in the area) where you can walk along the shore for miles, fish, or head down to the public beach in West Dennis for a more lively atmosphere.
The cottage is regularly served by ice cream trucks.

The cottage is lovely, ideal for our family and has a home-like atmosphere that we appreciated during the week that we stayed. We had sunshine and beach, time for jet skiing, sand castles, and everything that we hoped for grandchildren ages 1, 3, 7 & 10, especially a very short walk to the beach and an ice cream man who came to the house every day. For their young adult parents, shopping, dining, live music at local venues at night, and privacy at the cottage were all plusses. The area is very quiet - no radios, TVs, overly loud parties at night and sleeping is easy with the sound of the waves nearby. The kitchen, dining area (and dining on the screened front porch) are more than sufficient, very clean and cheerful. The owner (third generation owner, no less) was very helpful, accomodating and as you might expect, knowledgeable about the area. Each member of our family and our visitors for the day commented on how comfortable and perfect the cottage was as a summer place on the ocean. " How did you ever find this place?" they wanted to know. There are many things to do and places to go nearby, but we were content to spend most of the time together at the cottage and beach. It's definitely a vacation we will remember and a place we'll anticipate returning to.

About the owner: Hi there! I am Steve Simpson and am the fourth generation of the Simpson family to have grown up spending summers in our cottage. Though I live full-time in Washington, D.C., we have family living less than a mile away (the second generation) ready to help with any problems that might arise when you're enjoying the cottage.
Why the Owner Chose West Dennis:
The property was purchased in the 30's before the area was developed. Mostly settled by working class families seeking simple summer retreats, the cottage and many other original cottages in the area were built by our relatives by hand. Many of the cottages in the area still belong to the original families who first came to the area.
