It was a good week in Cape Cod!
Nice 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, all on one floor. There is a huge backyard with a small swing set and a relaxing hammock. It's a rather short walk to the beach, but not impressed with beach. The day we arrived there were 8 or 9 dead horseshoe crabs laying in a group (man-made arrangement) and so much seaweed between the beach area and the good swimming area. But, there were a lot of people there and there were life guards on duty.
Thanks for staying with us and writing your review. The beach may have been unraked since it was changeover day--one of the main reasons we bought here is the wonderful family friendly beach!
Great time in Harwich
Convinient location, great beach, short and beautiful stroll to the beach. Nice shady yard. Everything you need in the kitchen.
Good accommodations for a family vacation.
As described. Nine minute walk to a very nice beach. Clean and comfortable.
A perfect vacation.
The cottage was a perfect size exactly as advertised. The only issue we had was the walk to the beach had a busy street to cross and that was a problem. Other than that the cottage and beach were perfect.
The best place to go for families!
We just got back from staying here July 9-16th. It had plenty of room for our family of 6. The cottage is walking distance to the Pleasant St. Beach. It is close to everything!!! The outdoor shower was a godsend after the beach with young children, it's a must! I was also happy there was a washer and dryer. The older kids played volleyball in the spacious yard while my little guy played on the swings. I would definately come back!
A perfect Cape Cod vacation home
The house was more specious than I have expected for 8 people. The large open living room and dining room was ideal for us to spend time together in the evening. We were able to find interesting books on Cape Cod on the bookshelves and the kids like the board games and movies they found in the house.
The house is very close to the family friendly beach and close to Harwich shopping area. The outdoor shower was very convenient when we returned from the beach. The owner is thoughtful in providing all amenities and we were able to find everything we need in the house from pots, plans, wine glasses to beach/yard toys. We used the grill many times for our cookout and enjoy the large yard. The house is centrally located and excellent base during the week at Cape Cod.
I look forward in coming back again next summer.

Harwich has miles of ocean and freshwater beaches. Bring or rent a bike to enjoy the Cape Cod Rail Trail, only 2 miles away. The town has over 600 acres of open space and conservation lands for walking, jogging, and bird watching. Bike through the fresh water pond district and stop to have a swim. Fish on the bridges over the Herring River just around the corner. Launch a kayak in the river or on the 743-acre Long Pond a few miles away. Miniature golf, batting cage, bumper boats, trampolines, go-carts, and Harwich Mariners of the summer baseball league are minutes away. Dine at the many indoor and outdoor restaurants in Harwich and Chatham, or enjoy a root beer float at the local A&W. Play golf at one of the finest public courses in the US, Cranberry Valley, or at one of the less challenging courses, the Harwich Port GC. Shop at the Christmas Tree Shops nearby or relax in the top-notch town Library.
