We have just finished the second half of our cottage. This has added another bedroom, a large loft, and an additional seating area with amazing water views and a sleeper couch. This new area is quickly becoming the center of the house! We are so excited to share it with you.

Good house on Swan Lake

  • 4 of 5

This property was very nice and updated. However, there are a few inconviences that prevent it from being exceptional. There is no closet in the master bedroom or anywhere on that side of the house. When the windows are closed the septic smell (which is normal for a septic system) is definitely noticeable. Also, there is no dishwasher, which we didn't notice when booking. This property is in mid-cape which is convienent for some things but also pretty far from a lot of stuff we wanted to do.

That being said, the beds are very comfortable as is all of the furniture. The view of the lake is beautiful and the hot tub is very relaxing! The kitchen was very well stocked and easy to cook in. It's in a very quiet area with low traffic. It's a great house for a family (they have everything you would need for kids!).

Wonderful and relaxing at wanderer's rest!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation spot for all. Had a marvelous week relaxing on at this cottage. No place better than the deck for morning coffee and bird watching as well as cocktails in the afternoon and evening. Great location for all cape activities. Enjoy!

Sisters Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate home has an exceptional waterfront view of a pond . Each time you look out, you may see a swan, a heron, a kingfisher, a cormorant, or another bird. Don't miss out on kayaking on this pond and river. The home was very well equipped for a comfortable sisters getaway for my sister and me. Yet, its location was close to shopping, movies, and dining. A day trip to Provincetown was much fun and eating the best lobster rolls in the world at Moby Dick's in Wellfleet was a real treat. The love and care the owners have put into restoring this cottage is evident throughout. You will not be disappointed at Wanderer's Rest.

Wonderful, relaxing stay on the pond

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Wanderers' Rest, which is centrally and conveniently located Mid-Cape and has been very nicely and tastefully renovated. The home was extremely well stocked, and the view off the porch overlooking the pond was extremely relaxing. The home is located on a quiet street and is extremely charming - can't wait to see how it looks once Craig and Jesse finish all of the upgrades! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us - our family had a wonderful time and can't wait to return!

Wonderful vacation at Wanderers' Rest!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Wanderers' Rest to kick off our summer! The property is in a beautiful spot - you have the best of both worlds - a peaceful retreat overlooking Swan Pond, yet very close to many Cape beaches and plenty of activities in Dennis Port and nearby towns. Jesse and Craig, the owners, have done an amazing job with the renovations thus far - new hardwood floors, a shiny new kitchen, a beautiful new deck, and our favorite - the outside shower! Even though part of the cottage is still under construction, you will find the home very comfortable, clean and plenty roomy. During our stay, we had both adults and kids and everyone was very happy! We brought an air mattress for our youngest and it worked out great! From relaxing in the hammock, to kayaking on the pond, to barbecuing and enjoying meals on the deck, and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night, it was a perfect vacation! We look forward to returning this same time next year, and maybe even trying to sneak in a fall/winter get-away to take in the changing seasons on Swan Pond! Thanks Jesse and Craig for opening up your beautiful home and making it so cozy for others to enjoy! Can't wait to see what you have in store as the renovations continue!
