Beautiful home with old world charm
"Our family of 14-16 stayed here for a week and are already looking forward to returning. It's not easy to find homes with a lot of bedrooms plus the living space to accommodate a crowd. Southwest at Little Harbor does this and does it well. There are plenty of comfortable Adirondack chairs and a large picnic table with umbrella on the patio, a great spot to have coffee in the morning, lunch, or cocktails at sunset. The living room (if you ever want to leave the beach or patio) has ample, comfortable seating and lighting, and it is especially nice that the TV is in a separate room. Also, there are smaller rooms on each end of the house on the first floor that were perfect play areas for our grandkids to spread out their toys, yet still be close to the action. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms were appreciated, and the beds comfortable, with plenty of towels in the linen closet. There is plenty of room for cooking both inside and at the grill, and the kitchen was well equipped. The water in Buzzard's Bay is fairly calm and shallow, so it is good for the little ones. The beach was nearly our own each day, with a few friendly walkers and swimmers during the week. We had some great wind for sailing, and some calm days for kayaking. There isn't a huge amount of boat traffic, other than seeing the huge vessels in the distance that are heading in to the canal, which is extraordinary to see. We were also pleased not to have to cross the Bourne Bridge, which can be a traffic nightmare in the summer; shopping and an excellent farm stand are within a few miles. Traffic here is not at all like what you'd get further out on the Cape, a huge plus for us. This is a beautiful spot that we will gladly return to."

"Paradise is found in this beautifully decorated spacious home situated on the Swan River. Early morning on the porch, overlooking the tidal river, with breakfast and a love for nature cannot be beat! Our kayak sat out on the end of the pier waiting to take us up to Swan Pond or down to the ocean. Great fun for everyone in the family. Conservation land across the river is home to deer, geese, egrets, and once we even saw a fox! In the yard come family friendly ducks, rabbits, and so many varieties of birds, even our bird lover friends were amazed.
All this, along with the joys of the cape, especially the Dennis bay beaches with tidal flats that rival all else, and the great seafood, reminds us of childhood pleasures of coming home in evenings for fires in the fire pit, games and reading and the joys of family time. Bring your bikes, too, as rail trails are convenient and safe.
The Burns family truly provide top accommodations - the beds are super comfortable, two bathrooms plus a oversized whirlpool bath and an outdoor shower make for ease in accommodating six people of all ages. Our highest recommendation comes with our hope to return next year for our third stay at this idyllic hidden gem."

"We hope to return in 2017 for another family good time here. The terrific weather made the property even better as we used the dock to access the water for kayaking and SUPing. We accessed the rail trail for long bike rides and grilled a lot. The mozzies ate us alive when we used the hot tub one evening, but the house is wonderfully comfortable and easy to maintain and let folks spread out and do Their individual thing. The two weeks just flew by!!"
