A PERFECT LOCATION IN A PERFECT SETTING
Nature trails are easily accessed only 50 ft away that lead to Grey's Beach also known as Bass Hole. You can stroll the boardwalk that stretches 868 feet into a salt marsh over the bass river. Gray’s beach offers a playground, picnic area, boat launch, beach with lifeguards, and free parking. Here's what visitors are saying: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g41955-d208266-Reviews-Gray_s_Beach-Yarmouth_Port_Cape_Cod_Massachusetts.html.

Walk or bike to the neighborhood ice cream shop, village store, or newly renovated playground only minutes away. You will be conveniently located with easy access to the pristine bay beaches of Dennis which are only a 15-minute drive down Rt. 6A. Bike, walk, or drive to Dennis pond which is 1 mile away and is one of Cape Cod's cleanest freshwater ponds. Enjoy kayaking, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing on the beach which has lifeguards on duty during the weekend. Four kayaks & life vests are provided but guests are responsible for transporting them to desired waterways. Four bicycles and helmets are also available for exploring the nature trails,neighborhood, and bike trails. The neighborhood playground is being completely renovated with a completion date by the end of June 2015.

Visit downtown Hyannis, just 15 minutes away, where there is always something fun to do for any age. It boasts eclectic and fun museums, library, carousel, art galleries, boutiques, pubs, fine restaurants, nightclubs, ice cream parlors, coffeehouses, bookstores, harbor cruises, and the ferries to Nantucket and Martha's vineyard.
Experience the quieter side of cape cod. Scenic route 6A is chock full of antique shops and some of New England’s finest boutiques. The tree-lined winding road will bring you to many of the area’s finest restaurants while passing through some of america’s oldest villages.

“Landscapes, like beauty, may well be colored by the eye of the beholder, but steering along tree-shaded route 6a on a mild summer day, with blue inlets of cape cod bay on one side and white picket-fenced houses on the other, I’m tempted to conclude this may be the most appealing stretch of america I know.”
–Jonathan Kandell, Smithsonian Magazine, April 2005

Car: Necessary

It is known locally as both Gray’s Beach and Bass Hole. Located only one mile away by conservation trails next to property or by car it is 1.5 miles and offers free parking. There is a roped off area for swimming which is shallow for some distance from shore in a protected bay providing shelter from the often present Cape Cod wind and is ideal for small children. Next to the swimming beach is a launch area for small boats and kayaks, which provides access into Chase Garden Creek for kayakers looking for a marsh river paddle.Travel in the other direction from the launch takes kayaks, sailboats and small powerboats out into Barnstable harbor. With a boat or kayak it is also possible to land on Chapin Memorial Beach in Dennis, which has a beach on both Chase Garden Creek and Cape Cod Bay.Walk along the boardwalk next to the launch area which takes you out to the edge of the harbor where you can watch the boats, the shorebirds, fiddler crabs and fish or just enjoy the marsh itself. At the other end of Gray’s Beach, just past the picnic area there is access to a walking trail through a section of the marsh. An 860' boardwalk takes you out over the marsh to the woods beyond. Here's what visitors are saying: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g41955-d208266-Reviews-Gray_s_Beach-Yarmouth_Port_Cape_Cod_Massachusetts.html

The pristine bay beaches are a 15 minute drive down Rt 6A and will not disappoint with their beautiful white sand and calm, warm ocean waters.

A brand new playground is due to be completed by the end of June 2015 and is only a 10 minute walk away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our family has been renting private vacation homes for twenty years. We know what we like and expect and we try our best to put all those pieces together to ensure a comfortable and relaxing retreat. My husband and I have custom built and renovated several houses over the years as a hobby. This house is our first that we have had the opportunity to share and welcome guests. We purchased the house in February 2013 and have enjoyed two successful seasons renting on Cape Cod. I thoroughly enjoy making decorating changes and adding special touches to ensure my guests an enjoyable experience while vacationing here.

Why the Owner Chose Yarmouth Port:
The home is located on a very special piece of property that is surrounded by 300 acres of conservation land and overlooks Great Marshes, a tidal marsh. The nature trails that lead to Gray's beach are easily accessed 50 feet away. The sunsets and views are spectacular. As one of my guests had said, 'You feel like you're on your own private island.' During the course of a day, the lighting changes and creates a magical setting. Cape Cod Bay is the only location on the East Coast where you can view the sun setting over the ocean. It is peaceful and serene to be surrounded by nature and view hundreds of species of birds that call this paradise their home along with white-tailed bunnies who frolick in the yard at dawn and dusk. It is located north of Route 6A, very desirable and within fifteen minutes of ferries, train, airport, pristine bay beaches, Cape Cod Playhouse, antique shops, art galleries, museums, clam shacks, multiple golf courses, playgrounds, kayaking, boat launch, charter boats, and whale watching boats. A five minute walk to the newly renovated neighborhood playground (completion date by end of June 2015) and the village store/ice cream shop. A perfect location in a perfect setting.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has been renovated with new carpeting, hardwood flooring, custom tile, recessed lighting, and a new kitchen with cherry cabinets, stainless appliances, and granite countertops. New siding/trim, several new windows and doors, and new lighting were completed November 2014. All the furnishings, linens, and mattresses are new to ensure total comfort. Added benefits are central a/c, WiFi, flat screen tv's, laundering of bed linens, fully stocked kitchen, use of 4 kayaks, 4 bicycles, 6 beach chairs, cooler, and beach & bath towels at no additional cost. The yard is expansive to enjoy all types of outdoor activities and dog friendly nature trails are only 50' away.
