About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our family's vacation home is opened to friends for their enjoyment. The house is situated on a private corner lot in a residential neighborhood. It is a quick drive to Harwich's Town Center as well as the Town Beaches and a quaint stretch of shopping. The Cape Cod Bike Path runs behind the neighborhood and can be enjoyed for 30 miles in either direction. The town of Harwich has great restaurants and shopping, as well as long, sandy beaches along the Nantucket Sound. Visitors can enjoy daytrips to Nantucket or chartering a fishing boat for blues and stripers. There are two public golf courses in town to entice avid golfers, and we are only a few minute drive to go-carts and trampolines for the kiddies. Last, but not least, there is a Cape League Baseball team that plays in town - a blast for young kids to enjoy!!!

The actual house has the feel of a comfortable Cape cottage but includes many of today's amenities that vacationing families look for. It's 'Pottery Barn'-like design offers comfort and style, making it a perfect spot to relax and unwind. Most of the downstairs living area has hardwood floors that are easy to clean when you come home from the beach and don't want to worry about sand in your toes. The yard and neighborhood are great for young children to play outside, and dogs are negotiable. One of favorite activities is to grill and eat out on the back porch!

About Jason

My wife and I grew up vacationing at the Cape, and enjoy continuing this tradition as our family grows.

Jason purchased this house in 2002

Why Jason chose Northwest Harwich

Harwich beaches are perfect for families with young children because the warm, calm waters of Nantucket Sound are easily accessible. There are some great restaurants nearby, including our favorite - Clancy's on Bass River. It is easy to get to Chatham and/or the Bay Side from our house. For those who enjoy golf - Harwich offers a fantastic course, Cranberry Valley, which is open to the public. If a daytrip to Nantucket is in your plans, or perhaps a chartered fishing trip - both are easily accessed at one of the local harbors in Harwichport.

What makes this house unique

This house is a comfortably furnished, peaceful retreat located in residential cul-de-sac close to the Harwich beaches, freshwater ponds, and shopping. The yard has plenty of sun to enjoy while dining on the back porch. The amenities include washer/dryer, cable TV, DVD, wireless internet, A/C, gas grill, outdoor shower, beach chairs, and plenty of parking.

Fantastic house in a beautiful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Jason was a great host - very communicative and quick to respond to any questions I had. The house is great - a classic “cape house” in a quiet, safe neighborhood minutes from the bike trail! Very close to downtown, beaches, grocery stores, etc. Our family had a wonderful time - thanks again Jason!

Beautiful house -

We love the Cape and this house provides enough space for everyone. Loved that an extra A/C unit was added.

This rental became our home. The neighbors are all great and the location is perfect. Our dog Buddy enjoyed Thompson's Field (dog park) which is only a few minutes away and we had many runs on the Rail Trail which isn't a far walk from the home. We found many beaches were only a few miles away along with the shopping centers that are close by. Hiking the trail was awesome, we found many ponds along the way and the cranberry bogs were beautiful passing every day. We truly felt at home. I'd recommend this location for anyone who likes to get out and about yet come back and feel at home, everything a person could possibly need was available, we had many big family meals and never required a thing. We truly loved being here. Thank you
