About the Property

5BR/2.5 Ba House, walk to beach and town, (Sleeps 10), FRIDAY-FRIDAY Rental

Visit this charming historic Harwich Port antique farmhouse with 21st century comforts and technology updates. Built in 1825, across the street from Allen Harbor and Nantucket Sound, this house features a comfortable floor plan with plenty of room for relaxing with a large group of friends and family. The yard is a private, fenced-in acre of lawn with mature trees and plenty of hydrangeas. Ideal for families or grandparents hosting family visits.

The main floor features a Master bedroom with a queen bed and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, a living room with a queen size Pottery Barn sleep sofa, a sun porch with wicker seating for 6 and a table for casual dining, a dining room with a large table for 10, kitchen, laundry room, and powder room.

Cross the street to Allen Harbor Marina for a day of fishing or sailing in Nantucket Sound. Take a short walk to Brooks Road Beach. Walk or bike less than a mile to town where you can find restaurants, shops, bakeries, and ice cream parlors. Enjoy the weekly Main Street open music festivals and art shows.

Harwich Port is a well-kept secret with discreet charm and true New England character. The elegant historic churches still conduct services and host wonderful pancake breakfasts and lobster luncheons. Some have weekly dances.

Enjoy the charming seafood restaurants and the ambiance of three harbors in one Port. Watch the colorful sailboat races from the beach. Parents and children alike will be enchanted by the world-class performances at the Harwich Junior Theatre, a cherished local institution.

A perfect vacation retreat for family and friends.

Car: Recommended

The house is 1/3 mile from Brooks Road Beach...a 7 minute walk at a leisurely pace. The beach is on Nantucket Sound...usually mild waves and water much warmer than the National Seashore. The house is 400 yds. west of Allen Harbor...great for fishing excursion.

Other things to do in the area include: golf (2miles away), ferry trip to Nantucket (leaves from Harwich Port), shopping in Chatham (5 miles), kayaking (all over), mini-golf (0.5 miles away), go karts (0.5 miles away), Cape Cod Baseball league (these are college kids being scouted for the pros), bike riding, free concerts, tennis, sailing, campfires on the beach. . . . .


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Our family loves the beach, sailing, kayaking, and biking. We have enjoyed many happy summers on the Cape where we can do it all.

Why the Owner Chose Harwich Port, Harwich, MA, USA:
My husband and I had been looking for years for the perfect beach retreat. We found this wonderful gem in Harwich Port. The town is a hidden jewel among the more well known towns of the Cape. Once you have experienced the charm and elegance of this place, nowhere else will compare.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is ideal for those who like to park the car and leave the hustle of the city behind. Walk to the beach, walk to town, or relax in the back yard. The house is large enough to accommodate a big family or group with plenty of space to spread out. We enjoy getting together with our extended family for memorable vacations. We love sailing in Nantucket Sound, biking on the rail trail, walking the nature trails, kayaking, and golfing. The large, fenced-in yard is an extra bonus!
