Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 w/ queen sleeper sofa in LR

New for 2018! Now Ready! Sleeps 8. Our cottage has been expanded for the 2018 rental season featuring an expanded lower level w/ additional queen bedroom, full bath and reading nook - making this charming cottage to sleep 8! Cottage is an additional 400 square feet in our lower level plus the 1200 square feet upstairs. Enjoy our "Below Deck" feel featuring port holes in our bedroom w/ lots of other nautical touches throughout.

Come relax & unwind in this spacious, beautiful and newly renovated 1,600 square foot, 3 BR, 2 full baths cottage in Dennisport. It is tucked back in away from the main street on a quiet side street. You will love the location of the cottage - as it is within walking distance to downtown village (about 7 minutes) where you'll find a wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor, newly opened pub / restaurant, a great coffee/biscotti house, an ATM, convenient store, liquor store, drug store, pizzeria, the General Store and a few other interesting shops and restaurants - all within walking distance from the cottage. Drive 5 minutes or 3/4 of a mile down the street - at the end of the road - and there are the BEACHES in both directions - many to choose from!

Cottage is considered Mid-Cape - which means it's centrally located to visit many of the other beautiful quaint Cape Cod towns all within a short drive from the cottage. That includes the ferries to Martha's Vineyard in nearby Hyannis (about 10 miles from the cottage) or the ferry to Nantucket - even closer - about 5 miles from the cottage.

For visiting the beaches - the cottage is also a short bike ride to the beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. We recommend driving - as you'll want to take the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach accessories with you that we provide for your use.

Cottage is newly furnished, painted and decorated with all modern amenities including Hi--def flat screen tv, cable, Free Wi-fi, dvd player, i-phone doc for music, pack n' play, outdoor shower, cd/radio, AC, fully equipped eat in-kitchen with toaster, microwave, coffee pot, lobster pot, washer and dryer. I have a terrific current DVD collection if you get a rainy day or just want to have a family movie night. I also have a nice selection of coffee, teas, staples, linens, bags, foil, laundry detergent and fabric softener and even toilet paper for your use. So no need to haul all of this with you - it's there for your use. All linens and towels provided.

The spacious family room has a fireplace, comfy furniture w/ queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 2 in the LR. Covered front porch w/ 2 rockers to sip your morning coffee and plan your day. Enjoy outdoor BBQ's in our spacious outdoor space. There are several different lounging and eating areas throughout the yard if you want to escape the kids and read a book by our chiminea w/ a glass of lemonade or glass of wine. You can choose to sit in the sun - or under one of our 50 foot pine trees in the backyard or even take an afternoon nap on the hammock. Enjoy our fire pit making s'mores in the evenings after dinner. Our shed is filled w/ horseshoes, softball/mitts, v-ball, bad mitten if you're up for a little fun with the kids!

Love biking? Whether visiting in spring, summer or fall, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is within minutes from the house. It's a scenic, paved 22 mile path that stretches from South Dennis to Wellfleet complete w/ restrooms & scenic stops en route. Why rent a bike? For your pleasure, we provide 5-6 bikes with helmets. Also, beach chairs and beach towels are provided for your use. NOTHING TO BRING BUT YOURSELVES!

House is non-smoking - and pets are not allowed. Parking for 4 cars

House not big enough - or want separate space for inlaws, friends?? Rent our smaller cottage out back - charming 2 BR w/ all amenities (property # 3023171 on homeaway). Completely private & fenced in. .

About Melisa Cooper-Davis

We purchased this home in 2012 and have enjoyed every moment since. We visit the Cape all year round so the home is treated with extra TLC and the decorations, amenities and special touches you will see reflect that. We continue to update furnishings, decorative touches each year - making it appealing to not only us, but anyone who stays with us. We want you to get the full "Cape Cod" experience. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Melisa Cooper-Davis chose Dennis Port

We've been returning to this area year after year since our first trip to Nantucket - and have been in love with New England since. Dennisport is central - mid cape location - close to lots of quaint shops, clean and beautiful calm waters of the Nantucket Sound. A little slice of heaven! The people are lovely.

What makes this house unique

Excellent mid-cape location. Short drive to any of the other towns in the Cape. What we provide that most rentals don't is all the "extras" you will get when staying with us. We get many foreign and European travelers who enjoy our cottage because they don't have to worry about packing extra things. We provide it all - including bikes, linens, pack and play, high chair and shed filled with goodies for the beach, fully stocked kitchen with all the utensils and toiletries needed. Just bring yourselves!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister and I stayed @ this great house for 5 nights and just loved it! Quiet, private location that had everything we needed from wonderful comfortable beds & nice linens to a well-stocked kitchen! Even stainless steel pans! First time in all my Homeaway rentals over the years that I didn't have to go to Job Lot to buy something that was missing! Warm & cozy during the rainy days we had and very clean! We enjoyed the firepit outdoors & we got to meet Melisa & Ed who get a 10+ for customer service! They are friendly & fun and so concerned about our satisfaction.



We would stay here again and highly recommend this property as it's centrally located to beaches, shopping, and restaurants and it's cute, comfy and beautifully maintained!

Great vacations with a lot of extras

  • 5 of 5

This well kept, beautifully decorated and centrally located home in the mid cape area of Cape Cod made for the perfect base camp after long days at the beach and travelling from Woods Hole and up to Provincetown. It was nice to come home at the end of a busy day and unwind by the fire pit with the family. The house has a very well equipped kitchen with just about anything you can think of including a waffle and panini maker. When I talked to Melissa a few days before our trip I realized that I didn't need to bring the usual supplies that I normally would when renting a house, like linens, cleaning and laundry supplies. As far as beach items, I left them all at home because beach towels are provided, as well as chairs, a lot of toys, boogie boards, skim boards, beach umbrella and beach cart. The bikes were also a huge plus too. All of the extras at this home really made it easy to pack and have a stress free vacation at the Cape. Thank you Melissa and Ed for making our first visit to the Cape a great one!

Really relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we were travelling from Ireland. It was great to reach 'Sweet Retreat' after spending a very hectic week in NYC. The house is exactly as in the pictures. It is truly charming. It was a real bonus to find household essentials provided. A really nice touch.

We really enjoyed the fire pit at night. It was great to sit around and talk as a family.

Melisa was really quick to respond to any queries that we had.

Hopefully we will return in the future.

cute cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 recently stayed at sweet retreat and had a wonderful time! The cottage is clean and my three girls loved the beachy whimsical decor. There is plenty of room to spread out and Melisa and Ed provide all of the comforts of home. The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of bikes, beach chairs, beach towels, and even beach toys to use. Melisa was very responsive to all of our questions and provided recommendations on things to do while visiting Cape Cod. We visited many beaches, searched tidal pools in Sandwich, went whale-watching in Provincetown, enjoyed many great meals (you must try Mac's Shack in Wellfleet), and took a day trip to Nantucket. I would definitely stay here again and appreciate Melisa's quick response and hospitality during our stay!

Charming & well-located property

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 2 weeks during the recent heatwave and had a great vacation! We especially appreciated the convenience, comfort and decor of the cottage. The fact that bikes, linens, beach chairs, parasols, beach toys, as well as coffee/tea and other condiments were available made our stay especially enjoyable. We spent a lot of quality time with our kids watching movies, making smores in the firepit and just hanging out together.

The house is very well-located near several lovely beaches, restaurants, shops, bike-trail, and Harwichport & Chatham.

Melisa is especially attentive to any issues as well and the little labels around the house are very helpful for remembering where lightswitches/fans are located.

Overall, a lovely part of the world to spend your vacation in and a lovely cottage as well! .
