About Laura Donovan

We are very familiar with the Cape having vacationed here for many years. We also previously owned other Cape property before purchasing Kent. Rd. in 2012. If you have any questions about the Cape we would be glad to try an answer them. Our year round home is about 1 hour away.

Laura Donovan purchased this house in 2012

Why Laura Donovan chose East Harwich

The house has ample room for a large family or two small families. You will be just a short ride (1.5 miles) to Red River Beach. Also only a 5 or 10 minute ride to the restaurants and shops of Harwichport and Chatham Center. The house is on the bike trail, with access just a very short ride around the corner of a quiet side street. The yard offers sun and shade areas throughout the day.

Even better on our second Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this house and we can't say enough about this property and the great location.

The sunroom was our morning, and evening, go to room for coffee and family games. The outdoor shower was excellent after a day on the beach. The Wi-Fi was wicked fast, and the central AC was so comforting on those hot, humid days. The kids also loved having their own bedroom and area downstairs too! The home was very well stocked with all we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We will be back again next summer!

Beautiful home, outstanding location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home for a family! With four kids and four adults, this property was perfect for us. HUGE open kitchen, screened in patio, lots of deck space, basement family room and right on the CCRT. The house was very clean, well appointed and had everything we needed for a Cape Cod getaway.
