About Martha Ramage

We live in Texas and can't be at the Cape all the time. I have been there in every month of the year and love each month. The summer has plenty to do - the rest of the year there aren't so many visitors and it is quiet and peaceful.

Martha Ramage purchased this house in 2009

Why Martha Ramage chose Harwich

This house looks brand new and is kept pristine. It is our home and we have set it up with all the amenities of our home in Texas. When I cross the Sagamore Bridge, I breathe a sigh of relief and know that the real world is behind me and paradise is ahead! We have found the people on the Cape very friendly and hospitable - a welcome respite from the pressure of everyday life in a big city.

What makes this house unique

We knew the minute we looked at this house that it needed to be ours. The previous owners built it and for ten years came every summer for two months. It was built with 'good bones and we have loved being in it.

Cape Cod is a unique place away from the rest of the world. There are so many things to do: whale watching in P-Town, seal watching in Chatham, Friday night band concerts, Cape Cod Baseball League, Hyannis Sound concerts, many beaches, unique shopping opportunities, the best food in the world, great biking/running trails, museums, Heritage Gardens, Cape Cod railroad, and so much more. There is a 1800 square foot basement that has a Ping-Pong table and just a place to get away. This is our home and I have a notebook full of things to do and places to go. We come here to get away from the world. I want our guests to enjoy what there is at the Cape and each other. We play games, work puzzles, relax, eat, drink, and be merry. My hope is that you will do the same.

Wonderful home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples spent a week in July 2017 (for the 3rd year in a row). The house is well maintained, clean and spacious. The owners could not be more accommodating. We can ride bikes, drive or walk to the beach. We love Red River Beach! In three years I have never taken a shower inside - love that outdoor shower. The kitchen has everything we need to pack for a day at the beach and cook a great dinner. Our week is already booked for 2018! Highly recommend this home.

We have three couples in our party and have rented this property several years and have already reserved again for next year. This home is very well maintained, clean, and equipped, from bicycles to the range of herbs and spices.

Warm hearted and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing; it really made my family feel as if they were at home. The rooms were spacious and plenty of room for everyone. The kids enjoyed being either inside or outside. It was nice to sit on the back deck and just relax and talk. I would rent at this house again. We were staying at this house as we had a family wedding. Although weddings can be time consuming we still found plenty of time to hang at the house.

Perfect home for our family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely home in a quiet scenic neighborhood (hydrangeas galour!). It's great for kids with plenty of toys, balls,bikes,swings. The ping pong table in the basement was the scene of nightly tournaments. it's a long walk to the beach (20 minutes) but very pleasant. We drove one car loaded with chairs/coolers etc and small children and the rest of us walked. Beware....There is a parking fee of 20 per day at the beach. My only complaint is that we had to find the sheets and blankets and make up all the beds ourselves. And at the end of the week we were supposed to wash and fold all the towels. That might be typical for cape code?? I have always had laundry built into the cost of home rentals and that would have been my preference. Overall our stay was very very nice and Martha was very accommodating.

Perfect Cape Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It was perfect for our family vacation! We didn't want to leave when our week ended.The house had plenty of space, all the amenities you could ask for, and more. The house was spacious, the deck and backyard perfect, and the daily ping pong tournaments were exciting. Plenty of space to read, relax, hang out, eat, and convenient to the beach. Even though my children are all adults, the street is a family friendly location for walking and biking! Martha is a very thoughtful homeowner, and a pleasure to rent from and communicate with. The beach pail of some items you may need and information makes you feel welcome.
