About Anita Sangiolo

We are the proprietors of An English Garden Bed & Breakfast on Inman Rd. in Dennis Port. Joe is an MIT graduate, class of 1951, and for 30 years was vice president of a firm that specialized in the design, manufacture, and installation of geodesic radomes. You may have seen one these huge 'golf balls' in your travels, as they are part of a world wide landscape . Anita is a retired professional actress, having played many major rolls on the Boson stage. She has also done commercial and voice-over work. We are the proud parents of 4 children and 8 grandchildren. Weston, MA was our home for 40 years,but now we call Cape Cod our home.

Anita Sangiolo purchased this house in 2013

Why Anita Sangiolo chose Dennis Port

From the front door of our B&B we can see the back yard of Birch Hill. When this charming home came on the market in December 2012, we immediately purchased it. We poured heart and soul into making it a desirable rental house with the goal of creating a family/ child friendly home.

What makes this house unique

The location is superb ... on a quiet street just steps away from the beach. We are mid-cape. Day trips can be planned to Province town, Chatham, Hyannis, Plymouth Plantation and the Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

We live just around the corner, and are always there for you. We invite you to come, relax and enjoy all the charm that Cape Cod has to offer.

College Graduation & Family Reunion. 9 adults very comfortable w/ room to spare!

  • 5 of 5

Earlier in the week our son graduated from NYU, where five of us made our way to Cape Cod on Friday the 19th. Four of our adult New Orleans family met us at the home on the same Friday, where we spent a week of fellowship, eating, joy, fun, playing tourist, eating, exploration of the cape, did I mention eating and reuniting. Joe and Anita are wonderful hosts and the house was a perfect backdrop for our needs.

Two sisters stayed in the downstairs room with 2 double beds. A brother and his wife stayed in the downstairs master, while upstairs two married couples stayed in the upstairs master and other room with a double or queen sized bed. One person in the final room which has bunk beds and a twin bed. All total 9 adults, very comfortable. Many laughs and games took place around the big table. In between rain drops, we actually got a fire lit and had a smores night. The basement game room came in handy for ping pong and pool.

The location in Dennisport affords easy walking to shops and restaurants in Dennisport. West Harwich, Harwich and Chatham are just a few minutes away by car. Being almost centrally located in the cape, the trip to Provincetown was still close by, while the trip to Hyannis and Sandwich were also easily accessible.

All in all, I will strongly recommend this home as it serves it's purpose for a vacation. The private beach is about a half block walk from the home where many of our party enjoyed the beach at all times of the day and night.

Rent this home, get to meet Joe and Anita and just have a blast with your family and friends!

Charming and fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and comfortable rooms for everyone to gather as well. We spent more time in the house than we had planned, thanks to hurricane Jose. Wish we could have enjoyed the outdoor space more. You can't beat the location and the owners were wonderful about answering questions prior to our stay. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the area.

The house provided eveything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The house accommodated our multi families very well. The dining room table was big enough so that we could all eat together. We enjoyed many croquet games in the large yard. The beach and playground were only a short walk away.

We're located mid Cape where any Cape destination is no more than 1 hour away. This will allow you to take those fun 'day trips' exploring Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis and Woods Hole (Falmouth) and board the ferries to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. Local activities: Rent bikes & cycle as far as your wheels will take you, kyack on our picturesque marshes and estuaries, take an early morning run, or meander along the beach (walking trail 2 min. away), delight in a lazy day on beach or swim in the warm waters of Nantucket Sound. Enjoy an ice cream at our local Sundae School ice cream parlor. Visit our Dennis Cape museum and famous Cape Playhouse, visit Styker's sculpture studio on 6A. Take the kids to a matinee at the children's theater in W. Harwich. Lunch at the Dog House for fabulous hot dogs & hamburgers. Try 'The ORIGINAL Seafood Co' for freshest fish & Chips. Great Pizza at Royal Pizzeria and Domino's. Dine at the Ocean House (2min. walk), Oyster Co. (6 min walk). Pack a beach picnic & enjoy the sunrise / sunset from our private beach or simply Barbecue on our fabulous deck! Not to forget our local summer concerts, parades, 4th of July fireworks, craft fairs, antiquing & much more. Weekly newspaper highlights great Cape things to do. An English Garden B&B is steps away from Birch Hill and we'll be there for you in case of an emergency or simply to help you and your family have a great time.
