Car: Recommended

West Dennis is quintessential cape with an ideal mid cape location. The town is small, easy to get around in, has the most beautiful beaches and classic sunsets. Enjoy easy access to the Cape Cod Baseball League's nightly games. Canoe, kayak, or swim at local beaches. Enjoyment for the kids with trampolines, mini golf and go carts. Only a short drive to Route 6A with access to many shops and other cape towns. You can take a day trip to the Cape Cod National Seashore, or a day exploring art galleries, restaurants and shopping in Provincetown about a 40 minute drive away. Enjoy the Cape Playhouse in Dennis. Multiple golf courses, including Dennis Pines and Dennis Highlands. You might want to take in a concert at nearby Melody Tent in Hyannis, only 15 minute drive away - or also in Hyannis, catch the ferry to nearby Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard for the day.

Other Activities: There are so many wonderful and fun things to do very close to the house. You can enjoy bike rides and even do this as you shop the area along Route 28. Grey's Beach, Mayflower Beach are only 15-20 minutes away and are spectacularly beautiful. West Dennis is known for its beaches and ideal location. Kayaking and Paddle boarding is absolutely wonderful. There is an easy rental place just a few minutes from the house and you can kayak all around the Bass River and see beautiful marine wildlife and exquisite marsh areas along the river. Paddle board rental is also now available and very popular on the Bass River. There are a number of terrific restaurants close by. West Dennis beach is only 5-10 minutes from the house and walking in the area is quite nice.

Golf: The Town of West Dennis has wonderful golf courses to enjoy. Rates are relative to the time of the year. In addition to West Dennis area, there are a number of courses in nearby Cape towns that are convenient and easily accessible. Primary Golf Courses in the immediate area are: Highlands Golf Course (Par 71) and The Pines (both in Dennis); Yarmouth (one town over) has The Tidewater, Bayberry Hills (3-9 hole courses), Bass River in Yarmouth; Ocean Edge in Brewster just to name a few.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: John is from Boston and MaryAlice is from Houston. We are both working professionals and love spending as much time as we can at our home on the Cape in West Dennis. John grew up spending summer vacations in West Dennis, so we have a real connection to this area. We've been visiting the cape as a family for over 15 years. We currently live in Houston. John is a ship captain and manages a fleet of vessels for his company, and MaryAlice is a professor. We have family in the Boston area. John went to school at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and MA at MIT and UT Austin.

Why the Owner Chose West Dennis, Dennis, MA, USA:
We bought our home because we were looking for a perfect spot for retirement and enjoyment. We love this location because it is on a private street, so it is safe and quiet, yet we are close to everything that we love about the cape. When we bought our home we loved that it was just renovated because that allowed us to put on some finishing touches (downstairs patio, outdoor shower and new lawn and landscaping) but also start from scratch on furnishing it. Being in the mid-cape means we can do more in less time. We love sunsets at Grays Beach or Mayflower Beach's long low tide walks. We love the convenience of South Dennis Beach and the great walks we get in from our house to the beach. We love putting in kayaks at the town pier just a few minutes walk from our house, or fishing right off of it. And we love that kayak and paddle board rentals are just across from our place by the marina. There's so much to do in this area - golf, bike riding, hiking, kayaking, go carts, eating, ice cream! and much more that we just love.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we were shopping for a home to purchase, we walked in and instantly loved our home. The kitchen was perfect for our lifestyle and we loved the openness. The wood floors, granite countertops and balcony with great views of the river were a quick sell for us. We hope you will love it just as much!
