- Harwich is a great location for 'seeing' the Cape. Located at the 'elbow' makes it a convenient and easy drive to Provincetown, Wellfleet and Truro, as well as to Hyannis and Falmouth. Joseph's Pond is in th backyard and offers swimming, sailing and boating, while the Sound, Bay and Ocean are all within minutes of the house. While most activites focus on the out of doors, the Cape Cod Visitors Center, shopping in Chatham, viewing the art galleries in Wellfleet or a trip to P-town all represent great rainy day alternatives....moreless

On golden pond
We had a great time at this home on the pond. I usually don't like ponds but we booked it bc my son loves to fish. So I was totally surprised that this pond always had a beautiful breeze blowing no matter the time of day. There is a little two seater bench perched down near the homes private beach and that was our favorite spot. My husband and I read, did our work emails and chatted over a glass of wine there while we watched our 3 teen kids swim, fish, race kayaks and canoe! (all come with the house) The house has great karma. Plenty big enough for us when we had friends visit. We enjoyed the outdoor patio and we cooked a lot in the updated kitchen. The house was clean and very homey. The location of the home was great for us because it was in the middle of the places we like to go. 15 minutes to chatham and also only 15-20 to Dennis where we liked to golf. The owner could not have been nicer or more accomadating!! I told a friend of mine I felt like Katherine Hepburn in On Golden Pond! (except that Im not 80!) The pond really was much nicer than any pond 'Ive ever seen (it was more like a small lake) and that breeze was glorious. It was the most relaxed vacation we've had in years!

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My wife and our three children reside in New Jersey/New York area. We frequently use our Harwich House to vacation with extended family, including our grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
My parents built this home in the 1980's and thoroughly enjoyed their 25 year retirement living on 'Papa's Pond,' as we liked to call it. My Dad, a nature lover, enjoyed every aspect of the Cape during each of the four seasons. He would sail, canoe, harvest shell fish and hike nearly all year around as Harwich grew into an absolute paradise for his retirement. We purchased the home in 2007, when our Mom entered assisted living.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we're not hanging out in the backyard and enjoying the pond, we'll typically venture out toward the ocean beaches, via a hike or bike ride. Our favorite kayaking trip is the inland route around the Chatham....a wonderful way to sightsee and get some exercise. The Oyster Bars in Wellfleet are a 'must stop' on the way to Provincetown, and a whalewatch out of Orleans is almost always in season. When weather permits, we love to take the high speed ferry from Chatham over to Nantucket.
