Guestbook comments from the owner

Three generations had a wonderful time in this lovely house! The yard with the creek running by was perfect for games of football and tag and just relaxing. My grandfather was raised on Cape Cod and I am glad to have had the chance to get to know his hometown a bit.

Wonderful location and plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

At the last minute we were trying to plan an escape with the whole family after graduations and before starting jobs. What a lucky find this house was. The location is fantastic on a side street next to the Daniel Webster Inn directly across from the library and walkable to the Shawnee Pond, Dunbar Tea House, Brown Jug, Beth's Bakery, and a few cute shops on Jarvis Street. Sandwich has so much to offer and this home itself was a serene retreat due to the babbling brook in the backyard and sweeping lawn and perennial gardens. Lots of birds including an egret that briefly landed in a tree by the brook as if on schedule. The kitchen is bright and sunny and well outfitted. The linens and towels are plenty as are many books and movies in the event of a rainy day. My husband actually put the kayak in the brook and paddled out to the Boardwalk although on the way back due to high tide he had to exit before the underpass on River Rd. Great House! Great Location!

Great location in Sandwich Village

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during the July 4th week when local festivities (Sandwich Lighted Boat Parade) were within a short walk. Of course everyday the house is right in the historic part of Sandwich and it's a quick walk to dozens of shops and restaurants. There is also a water pump at the nearby gristmill that many people stopped to fill their water jugs, and once we caught on, we walked up there to fill our bottles too.

The house was comfortable and we liked the big open kitchen living area which led to the master bedroom. The house is equipped with almost everything you would need for entertaining, and owner was responsive to questions. Upstairs bedrooms were quite separate, which might be a problem with a very young family but worked great for us (youngest was 16) and offered even more room for socializing in the upstairs "den". We didn't spend too much time in the yard, but enjoyed relaxing on the deck - a few more chairs there would be great. We also grabbed a chair from the office to make more seating by the TV in the family room. We were a family of 5 that varied from 3 to 7 during our stay and had plenty of room even for our mini-dachschund who we limited to the main floor using a child-gate on-hand. Although we have stayed on the Cape many times, this was our first time in Sandwich and we appreciated the small town charm that is reminiscent of Martha's Vineyard. It has some rocky beaches which were nice if a little chilly, but we also drove to Nauset and Old Silver Beaches to get sandier beach days and took a great boat trip on the canal out of Wareham.

A wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This 5 bedroom home has plenty of room for an extended family to spread out and enjoy their vacation. the location is amazing as it is private but it located in the village of sandwich and is an easy walk to anything in the historic area. The beaches are beautiful, a little rocky but breathtaking! The back yard is expansive and green with many plants and trees and a stream, a personal stream right in the backyard. Relaxing and beautiful. My husband even took a dip. I would highly recommend the house and the area. Its quaint and charming and not overcrowded!

A Treasure !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent one month in this lovely home in Sandwich, Mass.

First of all, I can't recommend the location highly enough. Despite being mobility challenged I found it an easy walk to an historic church for Sunday services, the Sandwich Glass Museum, the one hundred year old (parts of it) Sandwich Library, Tea Room, Coffee Shops, Dexter's Grist Mill, the Hoxie House, Shawme Pond to swan gaze, the Daniel Webster Inn and other restaurants for meals. It's only about an hour twenty to the furthest point on the Cape and approximately the same to Boston. Day trips abound from this location, but you are poised to be off Cape in a matter of minutes!

The House. Very large and comfortable (great mattress on the King downstairs) with an interesting and eclectic collection of books, music and furnishings. This house just feels good. I spent many happy hours on the back porch with a book, watching the mill stream flow past. Large, lush, green backyard, and I adored the stream and its residents.

The Owner. We have found Bob to be a delight to work with. One time in our entire month long stay we had some concerns about the washing machine. Within a couple of hours Bob and his handyman were out and answered my concerns. Done.

I would highly recommend this home and the town it is located in. I am already planning on going back next fall with my grandchildren in tow!
