Cape Cod is an absolute gem during any season. You will not be disappointed when you stay at our house as it is central to everything the Cape has to offer. There are numerous beaches in Harwich both fresh and salt water plus two golf courses: a nine hole and Cranberry Valley; voted one of the best.
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Our lives began in Western Ma.. work took us to Greenwich, Ct. then to Lexington, Ma. and back to Wilton, Ct. in Fairfield County where we have been for years. Our first child was born in Greenwich, next two in Lexington and our daughter in Wilton. Time has a way of having everyone grow up and move on to becoming one lawyer, two doctors and one teacher. Added to this, we now have seven grandchildren and they are the best!!
Cape Cod is a second home to our family and the seven really cute grandchildren.
Our animal history consists of one 'very well behaved' horse, two equally as well behaved dogs, one cat, a rabbit and a few fish. These are all alive and well!!
Why the Owner Chose Harwich Port: We purchased Stepping Stones after selling our home of 35 years in Harwich Center. Our family has grown and we wanted space for everyone to grow and enjoy together.
Our hope is that you may have a wonderful time here and go home refreshed and filled with peace and love of everything that is good.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Stepping Stones has many nooks and cranies; enough for everyone to have space to read, think, rest and nap. The yard lends itself to personel time or meditation.
You can walk across the street to the harbor, again to rest or read and of course, the beach is just 400 yards away. So close, with chairs already there, you just need to show up! Enjoy!!
