About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Operated as a guest house for over 100 years, Harborwalk is now available as a weekly rental. We rent from Sunday to Sunday, accommodating guests who attend weddings on Saturday. This updated 1880's Victorian home is known for the expansive front porch, where there is always a breeze from Wychmere Harbor. The first floor holds a large dining room seating 12, a new (2007) kitchen, a handicapped accessible bedroom with a canopied queen sized bed and bath, and two parlors with lots of comfortable seating. The second floor has 5 bedrooms: Two have private baths, three bedrooms share a common bath. Two of the bedrooms have twins, one has bunkbeds, the other two are canopied queens. We provide the linens for you. A caretaker's apartment is located off the back of the house.

The location is ideal for one who wants to leave the car parked. Grab our beach chairs and cart and walk to the beach alongside Wychmere Harbor, the most-photographed harbor on Cape Cod.

Located in the village of Harwichport, we are steps to restaurants, shopping, and recreation of all sorts. We are close to Saquatucket and Allen Harbors as well. The boat to Nantucket is 1/2 mile down the street, as are whale and seal watching tours. Fishing? Walk out on the jetty or book a tour out to Wychmere. Golf? We have two courses in Harwichport, Cranberry Valley and the Harwichport course. Biking? The rail trail runs through Harwichport.

If your party is larger than 12, consider renting our smaller house as well, VRBO 452514

About The Owner

Purchased by my parents Preston and Marilyn Barry as a retirement project. They ran a successful B&B for many years. My sister ,brother and myself took over 10 years ago. We decided to create a weekly rental so families could enjoy all the house had to offer.

We love this house and use it whenever possible for family gatherings. We have had 3 weddings so far from two generations!

The Owner purchased this house in 1976

Why The Owner chose Cape Cod

This property has been in our family for 40 years. It represents memories for all of us. As small children we vacationed on cape cod so it seemed fitting that my parents would want to retire here.

We are blessed to share it with other families as they create new memories.

What makes this house unique

By far the best spot in the house is actually on the porch. It is large and lends itself to gatherings. It is also THE best place to curl up with a good book!

Our families stayed for a week this summer. Had a wonderful time - great location (around the corner from THE BEST ice cream shop - walked there every night after dinner). The boys (all adults) played Frisbee, etc in the large yard every day, we walked to the beach every day -- you can't park any closer to the beach without permits. Enjoyed the porch morning, noon & night. The best part was the ability to have all of our meals 'in'. Great kitchen, outdoor grill, etc. We will definitely be back.

the greatest location!!!

This was our 2nd year in a row staying at Harbor Walk. We rent with another family and there is ample room for the kids to run around and still have space for the adults to relax with a cocktail in the house or on the huge wrap-around porch. The short distance to the beach is fantastic and to be able to walk there is a great luxury. In addition, to walk to Sundae School is the best kiddie treat for all vacation days. We love the updated kitchen and the updated outdoor shower- after the beach, every day- it is a fight to who gets to use the outdoor shower first! Thanks again! Hope to see you next year!

We have stayed at this beautiful home year after year. It's location is perfect for all types of recreation, especially the gorgeous beach just steps away. Quaint shops and fantastic restaurants are merely a short picturesque walk away. The relaxing porch and breeze can't be beat. Hospitality at it's best! We highly reccomend this home to any family or group looking for the best of it all! Don't miss this experience! We love it and can't wait to go back!
