Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: We've been vacationing on Cape Cod for 25 years and finally purchased this cozy vacation home in 2010 for many more years of relaxing vacations.

Why East Harwich, Harwich, MA, USA:
We chose this cozy ranch cottage because it's located in the beautiful, quiet family neighborhood built around Buck's Pond. We walk to the freshwater pond with our beach chairs and books to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches, the refreshing, clean water, and the variety of birds that frequent the pond area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is conveniently located within a 5 minutes drive to grocery, drug, and hardware stores, as well as the post office, library, bike trails, and the Harwich community center. A ten minute drive will take you to the beautiful sandy beaches along the Nantucket Sound or to the dock to catch a ferry to Nantucket for the day. Several public and private golf courses are within a 5 mile radius and beyond. Bike trails are close by, which lead you on scenic routes through quaint villages, past cranberry bogs, marshes, bogs, fields, farms, and woods. Lots of good restaurants are nearby as well, serving delicious and leisurely breakfasts, lunches and/or dinners. There's even a Chinese carry out and a pizza joint 5 minutes away. Take a trip to the nearby Lavender Farm, a cranberry bog, historic houses, old graveyards with grave markers that date back to the 1600's. Visit lighthouses galore, as well as nature preserves, art galleries and museums, natural history museums, and more. Walk through quaint villages to admire the architecture, beautiful shops, and fantastic restaurants. Spend the afternoon at an outdoor craft show, local town festival, local farmer's market featuring fresh Cape Cod produce, chicken, eggs, beef, cheeses, and more. Take a ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket for the day to experience what these beautiful and unique islands have to offer. There is so much to enjoy...after 25 years,we're still finding new things to do!
