About the Property
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This 1930's cottage is a throwback to old Cape Cod and has been enjoyed by my family since then. It's been described as a real 'Summer of '42' cottage if you've seen the movie. Sandy feet and wet towels are really no big deal.
With five bedrooms and 1.5 baths, it can accommodate a large family and is great for kids. The maximum occupancy is 10 people. There is plenty of room to spread out, with an eat-in kitchen, large living room, front porch, and a spot to lay out in the sun on the side of the house.
The cottage sits about 100 yards from a semi-private sand beach (shared with other houses in the area) where you can walk along the shore for miles, fish, or head down to the public beach in West Dennis for a more lively atmosphere.
There is a shower head with cold and hot water outside for rinsing the salt and sand off, but it is not enclosed.
The cottage has off-street parking for four cars, and there is no street parking available in the neighborhood as the road is too narrow.
The cottage is regularly served by ice cream trucks.

Year Purchased: 1933
About: Hi there! I am Steve Simpson and am the fourth generation of the Simpson family to have grown up spending summers in our cottage. Though I live full-time in Washington, D.C., we have family living less than a mile away (the second generation) ready to help with any problems that might arise when you're enjoying the cottage.
Why West Dennis, Dennis, MA, USA:
The property was purchased in the 30's before the area was developed. Mostly settled by working class families seeking simple summer retreats, the cottage and many other original cottages in the area were built by our relatives by hand. Many of the cottages in the area still belong to the original families who first came to the area.
