About Maggie Stella

The Pilot House was built in 2000 to replace a cottage that had been part of Stedman Lodge/Harborwalk Guest House since the turn of the century. Harborwalk is presently rented weekly each summer by family groups. The Pilot House is occupied in the winter by property owners the Barry family.

Maggie Stella purchased this house in 2000

Why Maggie Stella chose Cape Cod

Marilyn and Preston Barry purchased Stedman Lodge in the 1970s and ran it as a summer guest house until a few years ago. Since then, the Barry family remains in Harwichport year round, but the property is rented by the week rather than daily, as the third generation is now taking part in the family business.

What makes this house unique

The Pilot House offers privacy yet the convenience of the Sundae School close by. After walking home from a day at the beach, sit under the trees in the yard to relax. Take part in a variety of recreational activities: tennis, golf, walking, biking, swimming, boating, fishing all steps from the house.

Ideal location to enjoy a perfect week in Harwichport

  • 5 of 5

The fact that we could park our car upon arrival and not move it again until we left was amazing! This house is perfectly located within walking distance to everything my family wanted to do for the week. The beach was a short walk and the outdoor shower was great to wash off the sand after! The Sundae School ice cream was almost too close (good thing we were on vacation!) and the pizza and drinks at Ember were not too bad either. This house worked out great for my family of three and look forward to vacationing here again!

Everything it promised to be

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house in August 2014 with our two teenage children. Sweet house, great size, plenty of room. Nice quiet location, though just across the field from the ice cream shop!, and a very short walk to the beach along a pretty road with a harbor along it.

We would recommend to the owners that they get some new beds as they were fairly uncomfortable and some new towels as they were pretty small and frayed for the price of the house. Nice to have linens and towels provided, and beach chairs. Very nice owner who lives just up the driveway but not omnipresent. There if you need anything.

Sundae School ice cream is great but you can skip Embers next door to it. Bad food, surly service.A charge for extra salad dressing on a dry salad? Are you KIDDING me?? Skip the bad pizza, go straight for the ice cream!! Don't be fooled by the fire pit and chic looking atmosphere from the outside. Good fried seafood for a treat at the Original, along Rte. 28 in Dennis. Locals say it's the best. Trust them! Fried clams will cost you, but they are divine. Sweet downtown area in Harwich Port and close to bike path.

Lots of places to shop, browse, even two consignment stores! Something for everyone.

Owner's Response: Our guests do love the privacy of the house as well as its proximity to activities, restaurants, and shopping. We all enjoy the walk to the beach as we pass scenic Wychmere Harbor. Most days I glimpse the osprey family in their mast-top nest. The warm Nantucket Sound water and sandy beach beckon us all. My favorite time of day is early morning when the water is calm. I take long walks from Allen's Harbor to Wychmere Harbor. It was useful to hear feedback about the beds and towels, as we have not heard that from any other guests. It is our goal to provide the best experience possible for our guests. Many of our regular guests have become our friends.

Car: recommended

Wychmere Harbor Club is a short stroll down the street; this location is perfect for events at the Club. No car is needed to enjoy your week here. This single family home is located on a quiet residential street near everything you need for your week in Harwichport. Walk to the golf course, get right on the Cape Cod Rail Trail(bikes), or take the family down the street to the warm water beach.
