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 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.

About Maggie Stella

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 12 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!

Maggie Stella purchased this house in 1976

Why Maggie Stella chose Harwich Port

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 wanted 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I could not have asked for a more relaxing week at Harborwalk! Taking the fast ferry over to Nantucket or walking into town for ice cream after dinner, the location of this house was most ideal, especially with young kids. The outdoor shower was a huge hit with everyone and the large gas grill made for easy cooking!

Everything worked well but two things. The stove seems to have been on thr fritz and it was difficult to regulate temperatures. Also, we were surprised to learn during the middle of the night from the fire department that an alarm had been sent from 6A. We would have appreciated knowing that from whoever called it in when the alarm was reported, since we share the same roof and would have evacuated if indicated. We also had a small child we would have had to carry out of the building.

Owner's Response: Mike- We are glad you and your family had another wonderful stay at our house. I'm sorry to hear about the stove not working, as this is the first time I am hearing about it from any previous guest or your group. I wish I could have solved that problem for you while you were staying with us. As for the alarm, it was set off in a separate residence, not connected to Harborwalk, and was the reason as to why your group was not notified. I'm sorry for any confusion that may have caused. Thanks, Maggie

Perfect week relaxing with my family

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Harborwalk was exactly what my family needed. We had 3 generations of family members who all enjoyed different aspects of the house and Harwich Port. My 5 year old niece loved walking to the beach and running around in the yard. My parents spent a few hours every morning on the front porch sipping coffee and reading. The 30 something's liked being able to walk to a few yummy restaurants and ride bikes on the bike path. We are already talking about coming again next year! Thank you so much for making our vacation so memorable! We will be back!

Family friendly home

  • 5 of 5

Three families with small children had a fabulous vacation . The front porch had a sea breeze that was delightful. Large spacious yard for children to play. Surrounded by beautiful landscaping . Easy walk to all shops and Bank Street beach. We all loved the historic quality of this lovely home . Quiet, peaceful bedrooms for all to enjoy. Everyone loved the convenient outdoor shower. We had a fabulous time at my neice's wedding which was an easy walk to the Wychmere Beach Resort.

We hope to return next year. Thank you for your gracious hospitality.

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!!!

  • 4 of 5

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!
