Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We rented this cottage in 1975, purchased it in 1992; enlarged, renovated, and updated it while spending summers here until we retired nearby five years ago. Our children learned to swim, sail, and catch frogs here, and now bring their friends here before and after the season. We can't wait for grandchildren! So we look forward to welcoming you, and wish for you as happy a time in the cottage as we had.
Why the Owner Chose East Harwich, Harwich, MA, USA:
We rented this cottage in 1975 and then again in 1991 because of family and friends in the neighborhood; after the 1991 rental, our children loved the cottage and swimming, we had wonderful family memories, and friends, authors and writers who borrowed it loved it, so we bought it. The friends who had visited it describe it as charming, lovely, quiet, private, unusual. Movies, upscale shopping, musical theater, gourmet food and grocery stores, antiques, museums - ten to 30 minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Velvety, clear water; nearest neighbors swim 100 yards away and grandchildren are the voices to be heard. Lie on the private swim float at night: shooting stars are not uncommon and the sky is a million points of light. In the daytime, the cottage is invisible from the pond because of the white pines and hardwood trees we planted over the years. Sit on the patio, and there is nothing more private or quiet; we have to look hard to see another house.
