About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Experience the Cape as it used to be. The two cabins are located on a peaceful, wooded acre with your own private beach. The larger cabin has a sleeping porch as well as sleeping quarters in the living room. Large barn doors in the living/dining area open up to a view of the river. Canvas shutters on the porch can be easily closed for privacy and protection against inclement weather. There is a fully enclosed outdoor shower with easy access over the porch to the inside of the cabin. There is no indoor shower. The second separate guest cabin is ideal for children or a second couple. It has four beds and a W/C (toilet). This cabin is included in the rental of the Crows Nest and is not rented separately.

The cabins were built in the 1920's as part of a nautical camp for boys founded by my grandmother and run later by my father. Camp Bonnie Dune, as it was called, closed its doors during the Second World War. The camp was never reopened and since then we, and many others, have enjoyed this bucolic and peaceful summer retreat. The property is located in an upscale neighborhood of large, elegant homes. However the full acre of private woods surrounding the two cabins provides a secluded atmosphere. The private beach is ideal for young children as it does not drop off suddenly. There is 80 feet of private waterfront. We do not have a cleaning service. When you come the cabin will be clean, and we ask that you leave it in the same, clean condition You will need to bring your own sheets and towels.

It is only a 5 minute drive to a shopping center with both a supermarket and a large, fabulous gourmet food store. Other shopping is close by. A 10 minute drive takes you to West Dennis Beach on Nantucket Sound. Rent a kayak down river and store it on the shoreline or bring your own for awesome canoeing and kayaking. Enjoy either of two golf courses, each 10 minutes away. The Cape Cod Playhouse on beautiful 6A is close by as well. You will enjoy the amenities of life on Cape Cod while living in a secluded, peaceful location.

Roll out of bed and into the river. Enjoy the cape as it used to be! Two families with children will have a great time.
