About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

A sunny, breezy little jewel box family home on a protected and private salt marsh in the most desirable part of Harwichport, right off Allen Harbor, Glendoon Cottage affords visitors the very best of the Cape Cod lifestyle.

Wake up in one of the four cozy, bright and lovely bedrooms and enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the custom-built dining table looking out on the emerald and sapphire of a Cape Cod morning. At mid-day, explore the picture-perfect shops on Harwichport's historic Main Street, or flip-flop down the road with the family to one of the many beautiful local beaches. Return sandy and tanned to take a refreshing outdoor shower under the blue sky, then relax with a glass of wine on the spacious back deck to enjoy the sunset over the marsh. At dinnertime, you can choose to grill and entertain friends on the back deck (we have a fantastic grocery store just around the corner) or set out for one of the town's wonderful and bustling summer restaurants. However you choose to spend it, a day and night at Glendoon Cottage is a perfect Cape Cod idyll.

The house has four bedrooms, 3 with two sets of twin beds and one with a queen-sized bed. There are two living rooms, one outfitted with TV and DVD, and the other for reading and chatting. Two full bathrooms, each with bathtub and shower, along with closets full of beach towels and all the other hallmarks of a coastal life.

The house has a full southern exposure used to maximum effect, it is full of gorgeous summer light and fresh, salty breezes at all times. It is cheerfully and lovingly decorated, having been in our family for 40 years. There are brand-new appliances in the kitchen, and a brand-new grill on the back deck with all accessories. There is also a brand new, 50 inch flatscreen TV with full cable and HBO, and ultra high speed wireless internet.

In the front yard, roses climb along a hand-built, classic Cape Cod wooden fence, and hydrangeas, lilies and wildflowers pile along the flagstone path and gravel drive, humming with bumblebees, ladybugs and butterflies, flanked by a 25-foot flagpole. It is on a private, incredibly quiet and peaceful sandy road located off of Lower County road, with everything easily accessible. Main street is a fifteen minute walk on a very scenic and safe sidewalk, and several local beaches run along Lower County Road.

There couldn't be a happier, more cheerful setting than Glendoon from which to experience for yourself and your family all the glories of a summer on old Cape Cod.
