Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 8)
Laura and I live on the North Shore about 20 minutes North of Boston. We are two working professionals with two beautiful daughters. Both Laura and I came from families that would make it a tradition to plan their annual vacations on Cape Cod. We were married at the Lighthouse Inn on West Dennis Beach. The area has always been a draw for us and we were always looking for reasons to visit. That's when we decided to purchase a home in Dennisport. We are happy to share our getaway with travelers and we hope you and your family will have similar memories of the Cape that we have created. The cottage has been visited by people from around the world. Some recent visitors have traveled from Hong Kong, Canada, Denmark, England and many states throughout the US. Recently, we had a couple exchange wedding vows in our backyard.
John purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why John chose Dennis Port
Location, Location, Location! Its all about location! Fresh/Salt water lake with a river that's connected to the local beaches, being less than 2 miles from some amazing beaches on Nantucket Sound - was some of the draws to purchasing our cottage. We also love the street being located on a quiet circle - it makes it safe for walking, riding your bike and or going for a jog. The yard is quiet and tranquil with beautiful views and easy access to the water. The lake is beautiful and very quiet. The back yard over looking the water is both private and well cared for. Great for BBQ'ing, relaxing on the hammock, sitting down by the water or having dinner on the deck.
What makes this Cottage unique
Some of our favorite benefits of being on Swan Pond is access tp the lake with the canoe and Kayaks. Having the private deck with water views is rare on the Cape and its something we look forward to every time we visit. The cottage is always very clean and comfortable. Decorated with traditional Cape Cod décor, the cottage offers water views from almost every window. Swan Pond cottage is a year round cottage that is available to rent in the off season. So, if you are looking to get away and would like water views in the Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring - please consider the beautiful views from our cottage getaway. Every season on the Cape is unique, especially on Swan pond.

On Swan Pond.
We enjoyed this little cabin on Swan Pond from 6/22-6/29/19. We had a lucky weather week and explored Hyannis, Dennis, Dennisport, Chatham, Nantucket, Wellfleet and Provincetown.
We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and walking about a mile to The Wee Packet on Depot Street for their excellent breakfast three of our seven days.
The highlights of the property are kayaking or canoeing on the pond. We took the canoe out to Nantucket Sound and back and I took 100 pictures along the way. So many ducks, geese, herons, and even a Swan family. One swan swam and then walked right up on the property and was 10 feet away. The Canoe trip was 3 hours round trip, but we also walked the beach when we got there.
We had a great time at the cabin and all over the Cape and took the steamship to Nantucket and biked our to Madaket Harbor. We also took our bikes on the Cape Cod Rail Trail to Brewster and had some great pizza.
I recommend a trip to Wellfleet Harbour for the oysters and the scenery, about 42 miles away. We also went to The Beachcomber and saw
Nice relaxing place
The house was very clean and all was as described and everything worked well. Its a great setting on the pond, very peaceful - we took advantage of the canoe. Great for biking, the rail trail is less than 2 miles away and beaches easily reached. The deck table was broken but that wasnt a problem as the weather was not the best! The house was just right for our stay.
This is our second year renting this property on Memorial Day Weekend! It was perfect for our needs! Love the location. It is close to everything. We enjoyed kayaking on the pond and having coffee watching the wildlife.
Thank you for choosing our cottage and we are happy you had a nice time. Coffee down by the water is a great way to start you day. We love sharing our cottage with guests and families. Have a great summer.

Perfect for our family and beautiful views
We had such a nice visit with my family. The house was very cute and cozy and accommodated the space that we needed. The backyard was great and view of the pond was beautiful. I wish the weather was better so we could have enjoyed it more!
Wonderful spot on the pond with everything you need!
The cottage was adorable and had everything we needed for a long weekend away. Our boys loved the loft and enjoyed watching movies up there at night and having their own space. We all enjoyed the outdoor space more than anything else, though. This spot on the pond was beautiful. Having the kayaks, canoe, and boat at the house (along with all of the paddles) made packing a breeze since everything was already at the cottage. The hammock provided a nice space for a little relaxation and there’s plenty of outdoor seating. The yard was a good size and had plenty of space for games. The fishing from the back yard was amazing...fish were literally jumping right out of the water, which provided tons of entertainment for our boys. The only negative we experienced was the bugs (they were fierce at night), so we had a little fire in the chiminea and lit some of the citronella candles that were available at the cottage. We had so much fun at the house, we only ventured out to the ocean once! We had a great time at the cottage and hope to be back again next fall.
This was our first trip to Cape Cod and we feel we picked the perfect place to stay. The location is great - close to everything. The cottage is clean, decorated beautifully, spacious and comfortable. My husband and three daughters and I had plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves at home. The backyard is peaceful and scenic. The Somes have thought of everything you might possibly need - deck with table and chairs and umbrella (with patio lights!), hammock by the water (my husband loved this), kayaks, canoe. Everything was well-kept and very nice quality. John quickly responded to any questions I had and was very pleasant to work with. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our vacation. It is truly a lovely place to stay.
Jennifer, thank you for choosing our cottage and for the kind words. The Cape is truly a beautiful place to vacation with so much to offer. Have a great rest of the summer and thank you for visiting our cottage. Your always welcome any time of the year.
