Great vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

This will be our 3rd consecutive summer in this cottage (3-weeks each time). Very comfortable, very clean, and with 3 BRs (1 w/dble bed, 1 w/2 twin beds, and 1 w/3 twin beds, all with decent closets), great for having guests or family members visit. In addition to the 1 bath, there is an enclosed outside shower. The very functional kitchen is adjacent to a large dining/living room arrangement, with dining table for 6 adults. There is a large picnic table and patio (wish it were covered for those few rainy days on the Cape), with built-in charcoal grill.

The cottage is 1 of 5 cottages in a quiet setting off the main road in a relatively secluded location. If you're an ice cream lover, there is the renowned Sundae School Shoppe-a mere 3-minute walk. To burn off the ice cream calories, the Sea Street Beach is just an easy 1/2 mile walk away. While parking is ample at the beach, it costs approximately $10-$12/day-another reason for the walking option.

While traffic is typical for a tourist area, it, with pre-planning, is very manageable. Traffic is typically heavy during the late afternoon and early evening hours, particularly if one uses Rt 28 and the Bass River Bridge going towards Hyannis. The cottage is within a short driving distance of a couple of large supermarkets and some local markets, and there are many souvenir shops. Restaurants of all types are abundant (sea food lovers delight). One can easily drive into Hyannis in 30 minutes or P-town in 60 minutes. Woods Hole and the National Oceanographic Institute is about 90 minutes. Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard depart from nearby Harwich and, of course, Hyannis. There are also several whale-watcher departure locations nearby.

If the weather cooperates, you should have a memorable vacation while staying at this cottage. If any problems occur with respect to the cottage, the owners are an easy phone call away and have been very responsive to any concerns.

Vacation Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

July 2017 will be our 11th year renting this cottage with the last 10 being consecutive years. The owners continue to upgrade the cottage with the latest being a complete redesign of the kitchen 4-years ago with new refrigerator and stove. A/C (window units) have been added to the master BR and LR/DR areas-certainly helps when those warm and humid days/evenings show up. There are ample fans in the other two BRs to allow for comfortable sleeping. The bed rooms can sleep 7 people with a queen size bed in the master BR and 2 and 3 twin beds in the other 2 BRs (great for visiting family). Kitchen and dining areas are adjacent to each other and there's a comfortable LR with a flat screen TV. Internet access is provided which comes in handy, particularly for those who must combine work with their vacation. Three years ago, the owners added a gas grill to complement the built-in charcoal grill on the patio, an excellent addition!

The cottage is 1 of 5 cottages in a quiet setting of the main road (Sea Street) and, if you're an ice cream lover, just a 3-minute walk to the Sundae School Shoppe. Sea Street Beach is just a 1/2 mile walk. While parking at the beach is sufficient, the short distance is a good thing because parking is expensive on a daily basis ($20/day and $25 on holidays).

Traffic is typical for a tourist vacation area during the season; however, with a little pre-planning it is very manageable. There are ample restaurants in the immediate vicinity ranging from fast food to quite nice-all within 20 minutes. Several supermarkets and fish markets are close by (~20 minutes). There are movie and stage theaters close by and the Dennis South-side Civic Association provides free concerts every Tuesday on the village green in which mostly local talent plays all kinds of music. Adjacent Harwich has their Town Stroll during the season in which all shops are open and with various bands playing different music on nearly every street corner.

Whale watch and seal watch outings are nearby. Hyannis is but 30 minutes away. Taking Rt 28 in late afternoon or early evening can be a challenge. P-town is about an hour away while Woods Hole and the National Oceanographic Institute and museum is about a 90 minute drive. Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard depart from nearby Harwich or Hyannis.

It's a great cottage that will help provide a memorable vacation. The owners are an easy phone call away and are very responsive to any concern.

Nice private little area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We were very happy they had a few air conditioners since it got quite hot the week we stayed, lots of fans too. We had 7 adults and we had plenty of room. One bathroom but we alternated just fine. wonderful out side cookout area and grill and we had room for our visitors cars. This is located on a private little circle away from the crowd. Just a short walk to the beach. Owner was very accommodating to our needs. I would rent this house again.

Super Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a fun week at this wonderful cottage in the fall of 2012. We shared the home with another couple and found we had plenty of space and privacy. The cottage is very quiet as it is tucked into the back of a small compound of five cottages. We parked our cars right next to the cottage and found walking to the nearby beaches, restaurants, and shops an easy stretch of the legs. We had a wonderful time and found the accommodations quite pleasant. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the beds comfortable and furnishings perfect for a family vacation. We enjoyed cooking meals in the well-appointed kitchen and appreciated the roomy dining area. Many cottages in the area are small and don’t really feel like home. We found ourselves just as comfortable here as we do at our Virginia mountain home. The cottage is an easy walk to the beach and restaurants. While one does not go to Cape Cod to watch TV or use the Internet we found both of these amenities useful. If you have kids I’m sure they will appreciate the cable TV and the fast Internet speeds. We also very much liked the small picnic area just outside the kitchen. It was great for grilling and enjoying the outdoors. There is an outdoor shower that is useful at keeping the beach sand outside. This is a real plus for kids. The owners were very responsive and great to work with. We are looking forward to more trips to Cape Cod and when we go we will certainly return to this lovely cottage.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your trip to the Cape. Fall is a wonderful time . Many attractions are less crowded than in the summer months but remain open and welcoming to visitors. I'm sure the gas fire place was cozy for those fall evenings.

Great House in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at this house and thoroughly enjoyed it! Well maintained, very clean, ample sleeping with a nice size eating and sitting area, and definitely has that "new england cottage" feel to it. Since it sits back on a shaded cul de sac, we particularly enjoyed sitting outside on the brick patio surrounded by trees. The location was very easy walk to the shore, and about 1 mile to the public beach. Several good restaurants are nearby, not to mention the Sundae Shoppe Ice Cream just around the corner. Since Dennisport sits about midway out on the cape, it was a pretty easy drive for our excursions to Chatham, Falmouth, and Hyannis (fortunately for us, traffic wasn't so bad since we were after Labor Day). We absolutely recommend this for those looking for a relaxing getaway.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. We have tried to make the house cozy and the "Cape Cod Experience" Mid-Cape is a great place to stay and see all of Cape Cod.
