About the Property

5 bedrooms; 2 baths, sleeps 9

Nostalgic for your childhood summers? Scenic, historic Bass River is a quiet family neighborhood off Route 28 in South Yarmouth, cherished vacation spot for generations. Leisurely stroll, bike or jog. 1/2 block to Windmill Park on River for quick dips, sun, moon and star-gazing. 1 mile to warm Nantucket Sound beaches with lifeguards and concession stands. Come home to a hot outdoor shower and start your dinner on the grill . Morning - night: dine and relax in a large screened porch with full-sized swing, picnic table and rockers. Once settled, you may not want to leave. But if you venture into the yard, you can lounge, picnic, or play croquet. A six-foot hedge encloses the property from the street. In the evening, Bass River quiets down, as families finish supper and go for evening walks. Some nights enjoy one of many reasonably priced restaurants, ice cream parlors, mini golf or other entertainment centers mere minutes away.

Summer Baseball fans? We're five minutes from the home of the famous Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, one of the country's top summer leagues for decades. Many pro's get their starts here. Admission is free and great fun for all ages.

Charming AND Convenient: An historic neighborhood with charming homes, Bass River is 1/2 mile from busy, commercial Route 28, with supermarkets, restaurants, gift shops, Ryan Family Amusement, miniature golf and sporting arenas, ice cream and taffy stands and more. Small, homey Great Island Bakery is a block's stroll for those enjoying fresh baked goods, coffee, and hot dogs. Public Beaches with lifeguards are a 10-minute walk. Boat and bike rentals, para-sailing, fishing, golfing and tennis are within a few miles.
