Dennis house description

This beach front house is the ultimate way to experience Cape Cod. House has been gently updated to provide comforts and charms while yielding to another era. Enjoy stunning views from every angle of this vast property. Plenty of acreage on beach front or property for volleyball, croquet, bocce, whiffle ball etc. Take long walks or sit and read on private beach located between Mayflower and Corporation public beaches. Relax as the children spend hours safely searching the tidal pools at low tide for aquatic treasures. Bring a cold drink to the waterfront bluff and capture a picturesque sunset over the Bay. Gaze out and imagine the seashore as it looked 200 years ago.

Cape Art Museum, Cape Playhouse Theatre, Cape Cinema, Antique shops, great lunch and dinner restaurants are all within a short walk or biking distance. For the adventurous, National Seashores, ocean surfing, river kayaking, and numerous lakes and bike trails dot the landscape as you head up cape. Take a daytrip to Provincetown along historic 6A and enjoy the antique shops, lobster shacks, drive-in theater, museums, cranberry bogs, and whale watching. The Cape has something to offer for all seasons. Fall weekend specials available.

Do a little, do a lot or do nothing. Enjoy. Peace.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Our family came to Cape Cod in the 1980's and stayed in rentals near the Dennis public beaches. We raised 4 children along the way and discovered that the bayside beaches were the perfect babysitter as our kids spent hours exploring the tidal pools. This time helped us relax and recharge during our summer vacations. The Cape is a never-ending exploration as we find several different treasures on every visit. We are blessed and fortunate to be able to share this property with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Dennis:
              The beaches, privacy, natural beauty, perfect Cape location all help to make this home provide memories for a life-time. This 'Summer of '42' house provides all of the comforts, yet brings you back to how things used to be. Clean, simple, historic, all describe this rental. Long time residents have suggested that this area and property was a summer retreat for the Native Americans who inhabited the area centuries ago. To be there is to feel it.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Autumn months are delightful as the days are warm, the nights cool and the tourists have mostly gone off Cape.
