Harwich house description

Enjoy all that Cape Cod has to offer in this charmingly restored antique home situated on one acre of land at 23 Willow Street in West Harwich. Our beautiful antique home is actually two three-quarter-cape houses connected together. The older of the two houses was built around 1820 and was occupied by Anthony Kelley who lived from 1791 - 1866. The second house was moved to the property around 1840. Our home is the true essence of a Cape Cod antique. The historic house features three fireplaces (one functioning), wide pine floors, and original post and beam construction. From 1983 to the present it has been called Willow House.

Located on a quiet street, Willow House is less than a mile from three Nantucket Sound beaches: Belmont Road, Sea View and Inman Road Beach. Included in your rental is a parking space (on Caleb Street Dennisport) which is just one street back from the beaches listed above.

Willow House can accommodate up to a maximum of 13 guests. Our home has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and an extra room with a queen sized pull out couch. Linens, beach and bath towels provided.

Enjoy your morning coffee on the lovely porch on the West side of the house, or a family barbeque on the patio on the East side overlooking the horseshoe court and gardens. Rinse off in the outdoor shower after a day at the beach. Play a round of golf at one of the many area golf courses, charter a fishing boat or take in a Cape League baseball game. Take a bike ride, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is easily accessed from our location. Take a hike on the trails and through the cranberry bogs at Bells Neck Conservation land which is just down the road. Sea View Park, only a 1/2 mile away, has a walking trail for a leisurely stroll and a playground.

From our convenient mid-cape location, you can enjoy wonderful day trips and amazing sights; the National Seashore and Provincetown to the North, Chatham to the east, and Hyannis and Sandwich to the west. You can even take day trips on high-speed ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Experience all these adventures while using our home as your base.

This will be our fourth season at Willow House, but we have lots of experience pleasing vacationing guests. For the past five summers we have been the Inn keepers at An English Garden Bed and Breakfast, just down the street. We will work to have the same level of satisfaction and happy, relaxed guests at the Willow House.

Please join us this summer and enjoy The Willow House for a family vacation to remember!

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Architect Mark and Landscape Architect Susan spend the summer helping Mark's parents run 'An English Garden Bed & Breakfast ', about 3/4 mile away in Dennis Port.

              Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
              We spent the last few summers working on the Cape and really enjoyed the people, beaches and relaxed way of life. The year we became 'empty nesters' we decided it was time for a change. Relocating to the Cape to be near Mark's parents was an easy decision for us.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Willow House is approximately 3/4 of a mile from 3 Nantucket Sound public beaches. As part of your rental we will provide you with a private parking space about 200 yards from a public beach at my parents property. Willow House is just down the street from the Harwich Junior Theater, Cape Cod's Premiere family theater. The Village of Dennisport is a short walk with antique shops, coffee and biscotti shop, pizza parlor that serves gluton free pizza, natural food market, general store, drugstore/pharmacy, and library. Harwich with its 7 villages has many interesting beaches, shops, and restaurants. The quaint Village of Harwich Port is a pleasant bike ride away. The Cape Cod Rail Trail/Bike path is nearby. The Freedom Cruise Line in Harwich Port provides high speed ferry service to Nantucket. Harwich has hundreds of acres of conservation land with lakes, bike trails, rivers, ponds and cranberry bogs ( tours available ). Visit the magnificent dunes and spectacular, destination beaches of the National Seashore. Pack a picnic and marvel at the sunset at West Dennis Beach which is only 3 mi. away.
