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 the 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.
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.
