Location

Car: Necessary

Laughing Lobster Cottage is just a 12-minute stroll away from Harwich's popular Red River Beach. Located south of Rt 28, our home is a 3-mile bike ride or drive from Harwich Port (to the West) and Chatham (to the East). The cottage is also just a couple of blocks from the Cape Cod Rail Trail which extends from Dennis to Wellfleet with ice cream stops along the way!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Our family LOVES the ocean. There is nothing better to us than feeling the sand between our toes and the salty scent of the ocean breeze.

Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
Harwich still has that quintessential 'Old Cape' feel - wild roses and hydrangeas in summer, weathered clapboards, homemade ice cream and friendly shop owners. We arrive and instantly feel like we've been transported to a simpler time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sit on the back porch first thing in the morning and take a sip of coffee. Now, close your eyes and listen to the birds. Take a deep breath...what's that strange sensation? It's called relaxation! What will you do today? Stroll to the beach? Maybe later play some pool or take a dip in the Jacuzzi? So many choices!
