About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

Escape to the Cape in an idyllic year round historical community, located on the tranquil north side of Rte. 6A. This peaceful neighborhood is within a 5 minute walk to walking trails out to the ocean flats & the smell of ocean air. Once you've settled in & decided your plans, step out to all the vibrant towns this peninsula has to offer you for your well earned vacation. Oliver's Restaurant conveniently located within walking distance with family friendly prices and winning seafood & land-food alike. Peterson's Market, a fully stocked deli/take out/grocery/wine & beverages/& necessities is a short walk away.

Waking to the sounds of the flip flop community, you'll want to take advantage of the excellent breakfast spots that will be sure to gain a place in your photo album. Grumpy's, The Landing, The Red Cottage, to name a few will keep you satisfied well into late afternoon. How about a trip into Provincetown? The farthest town on the Cape, travel to this historical town takes you through all the towns of the Lower Cape and is definitely worth the hour drive. More in the mood for driving a cart across the golf course? A mere 3.5 miles gets you to Bayberry Hills Golf Club, a public golf course open year round. Chatham Bars Golf Club is also open to the public and gives you a tantalizing view of the Atlantic as you take the tee. Yummy deli sandwiches and coffees, drinks for the whole family at The Chatham Village Cafe will keep you going as you explore the unique downtown of Chatham on the elbow of the Cape. Lots to do, come and see what the Cape has to offer.

Whether you want to relax and fish and go crabbing, bike the Cape Cod bike trail, or go antiquing, your options are limitless. Nights can be filled with going to the Cape Cod Baseball League's games. The Y-D Red Sox home field is in Yarmouth. Come adopt the home team, and be a part of the Cape amateur baseball league. The games are free, and you can say you helped them make it to the big leagues! Whatever your vacation dreams may be, come be a wash-ashore over the Cape Cod Canal bridge. It's so close, and you've earned it.

About Tudi Thiele and Wash Ashore

I spent four years in college hearing stories of my friend's family adventures on Cape Cod, MA. As an adult, I wanted to be able to extend a beautiful, clean, affordable house to families in search of a place to have their own summer vacation become a part of the fabric of their family's life. Family time together, away from the stress of daily grind routines that can, if we're not careful, drag the joy out of the most important thing we have in this life--family, is the most valuable gift we can give ourselves. I hope that my house, Wash Ashore, becomes a place where your family can reconnect and build years of happy moments that layer your lives with joy and fond memories.

Tudi Thiele and Wash Ashore purchased this house in 2008

Why Tudi Thiele and Wash Ashore chose Dennis

This location is ideal because it is close to everything, yet part of a sleepy Cape village that allows for just going at your own pace. Situated just north of Rte. 6A it abuts the beautiful bay and tidal flats that keep your senses aware that the ocean is only a few minutes away. It allows you to feel part of a community but at the same time, like a visitor who gets to see everything for the first time. A desirable location, you're close to sandy beaches, restaurants, shopping, Edward Gorey house, ferries, homemade ice-cream, mini-golf, whale watches, charter boat fishing, ferries to Nantucket, antique shoppes, The Cape Cod Playhouse, clam shacks, Cape Cod Braided Rug Company, art studios, glass blowing, whatever you wish. You can be energetic or laid back--your choice. A good choice to have on your vacation!

Plus, grocery shopping is just a 10 minute walk away, a luxury on Cape Cod! Five golf courses within 20 minutes drive. You pick, it's all right there for you as you wish.

What makes this house unique

The minute you enter the front door, you will get a sense of peacefulness. The solid wood beams in the living room, the open concept of the floor plan, the wide open space of the huge back yard--all give your family a sense of being together but not on top of each other! It's a huge breath of 'Phew! We're on vacation! Let's relax and enjoy every inch of this time!'

Home away

  • 5 of 5

Returning to Wash Ashores was like coming home. This house is so comfortable- everything you will need has been provided. The location is hard to beat especially for boardwalk sunsets, CC Bay beaches, access to Dennis bike routes, and quick trips to the store. Highly recommend.

Good location and well-equipped home!

  • 3 of 5

The home had everything we needed. It's on a quiet street only a short walk from Bray's Farm, and an even shorter walk to a local market. Highly recommend Smuggler's ice cream shop and Mayflower Beach, locally. Also easy to drive over to the ocean side. Mattresses were on the thin side (Ikea?), and the living room could have used screens in the windows, but it cooled off in general with the windows from the rest of the house open. The outdoor shower was not usable, hinges too rusted to open! But there was a hose outside to rise off sandy feet. Overall, an easy spot, well-cared for home, and most important - we had an awesome vacation!

Owner's Response: Hello there! :D I'm super glad you had an amazing vacation. We are blessed indeed to have such a perfect spot here on Cape Cod! Oh gosh! If only you had called me about the outdoor shower -- it has a security lock on it up high so that the little ones can't just open it up and get inside and then not be able to get out again. Safety is super important! I wish you had called me, I would have been able to tell you to just look up and you would have seen it and been able to make use of the amazing outdoor shower. It is truly one of my favorite features of Wash Ashore :D We are really lucky here to not have a problem with flying bugs for some reason, so we have never had the need for screens in the living room windows. All the other windows have screens and we open those for cross breezes, we just never saw the need for them there. I hope you have a great autumn. Sincerely, With sandy feet, Tudi and Wash Ashore :D

The perfect cottage for our family of four adults and two children

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Wash Ashores. It is the perfect cottage for our family of four adults and two children. The girls stayed in the twin bedroom, and the adults stayed in the two queen bedrooms. The cottage is well stocked in terms of cooking utensils, etc. It is very close to Peterson's Market, a Rite Aide drugstore and Oliver's Restaurant. We loved the outside shower after a day at the beach. We plan on returning in 2017.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Wash Ashore. The location is convenient to most everything. It's great to have Bray Farm sunsets, Oliver's Restaurant and Peterson's Market a short walk away. The neighborhood is quiet with lovely homes. The furnishings are comfortable and attractive. Tudi gives you a well-stocked kitchen so you can grill, clam/lobster boil or go gourmet. We brought our bikes and kayaks and made good use of them. For the couple of questions we had, Tudi responded quickly and helpfully. We would definitely rent this house again. Thanks Tudi!

Car: recommended

Feel like stepping out to Hyannis to shop Main Street, go to the movies, take a plane from Hyannis Airport or take the ferry to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard? A 20 minute drive along Rte. 6A will get you there. Can't wait to bury your toes in the sand & feel the sea salt spray on your face? Your choice of beaches awaits you. Gray's Beach & boardwalk, Corporation Beach, Chapin Beach, & Cold Storage Beach are within a 7 minute drive. Prepare yourself to fall in love. The sunsets will linger in your heart long after the last of the beach sand has been washed away.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, shelling, wildlife viewing, basketball courts, miniature golf, Racquetball, health/beauty spa
