Property description

Short walk to Red River Beach: The 'Star Fish Cottage' is a tastefully decorated Cape Cod cottage with 2 levels of living, with 4 window a/c's, washer & dryer, and private association beach. On the street level there is a living room, family room, sunny kitchen, one queen bedroom, a second bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bath. The garden level has a queen bedroom, full bath and a living room that opens to a lovely back yard. It is 4/10ths of a mile to Red River Beach, close to the bike trail and minutes to Harwich Port Village, Wychmere Harbor and Chatham, with its wonderful shops, restaurants and lighthouse ocean view.

The Starfish Cottage is perfect for families or multiple couples, with its separate spaces and three living areas. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes lobster pots. Our guests enjoy the perfect location, proximity to the best the Cape has to offer, and 8-minute stroll to the shore. 'The Starfish Cottage is so comfortable,' wrote one family, 'and was a pleasure to come home to every night.' 'The Starfish Cottage is great!' writes another family, 'It's the best place we've stayed in on the Cape. All the comforts of home plus the beach.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in the American Southwest and love the mountains and desert, but our dream has ALWAYS been to purchase a home on Cape Cod, where Joanie has vacationed, lived, and worked since the age of five. Knowing the Cape as well as she does, Joanie was the optimal point person for finding our dream home on the Harwich/Chatham town line, and she located the perfect property for us, even coming up with just the right name: The Starfish Cottage. We love the house, which is a classic Cape in a lovely neighborhood, close to all of our favorite beaches, shops, and restaurants. As one family commented in our guest book, the house is 'a perfect place to come home to.' We love sharing the cottage with others and hope you will find it the perfect retreat for your Cape Cod vacation as well! --Tom and Joanie, El Paso

Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
We have fond family memories of the area and each back road and sandy lane has a story to tell. We really love the central location, which makes the entire Cape accessible.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunrise walks to the beach; Friday night band concerts in Chatham; candlelit dinners at Buca's or Pate's; clams at the Kreme N' Kone; moonlit drives to the Chatham Lighthouse; day trips to Wellfleet, the Marconi beach, and Provincetown; the Cape Cod bike path and Nickerson State Park; ferry rides to Nantucket; fishing off the wooden bridge in Chatham.
