West Harwich House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-10

Wonderful historic home in West Harwich just 0.4 miles to Earle Rd. Beach, load up the wagon with beach toys and chairs and walk two short blocks to this sandy beach with its beautiful grass covered dunes. This house has a great layout for two families or one large extended family with the flexibility of a first floor master and a queen bedroom upstairs for parents and grandparents with two additional rooms including a room with double bunkbeds and a room with double twin beds for children and other guests. It has a screened in porch with a bar and an enclosed back yard for privacy and safety with a private outdoor shower.

Convenient to everything including: the Cape Cod bike trail, Herring River and Conservation area for fishing, kayaking and bird watching, pause and listen to the church bells ringing out from nearby Holy Trinity Church or spend a moment in quiet reflection within the beautiful chapel located behind it, 0.5 miles to Star/Shaw's grocery store, enjoy fresh caught seafood or a steamed lobster from George's fish market, or dine out at one of Harwich's many family friendly restaurants. Catch a preview of tomorrow's major leaguers in a Cape Cod baseball game featuring the Harwich Mariners at Whitehouse Field. Hop a ferry to Nantucket for the day from Saquatucket Harbor in picturesque downtown Harwich Port. Take the kids to the town park to shoot hoops, play tennis or monkey around on the playground, and of course enjoy one of Harwich's many lovely saltwater or freshwater beaches.

About Barbara McDowell

Our family has been vacationing in the Cape for almost 15 years. We dreamed of owning a vacation home here from the very start. Our hope is that you too will fall in love with the Cape. Enjoying every minute and counting the days until you return.

Barbara McDowell purchased this house in 2013

Why Barbara McDowell chose Cape Cod

Of all the Cape towns, Harwich is the most diverse offering everything a family could ask for in a beach vacation. The location of the home is ideal. Convenient to everything especially the beach. The fenced in yard is a lovely feature which gives peace of mind to families with small children.

What makes this house unique

Central A/C, Wi Fi, washer and dryer and a private outdoor shower

Perfect house - great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second year renting this home. It is in a great location right off of 28 so a quick jump to all we want to do. Lots of restaurants, shopping, activities in the area. Beach is walkable which is fantastic. I rent with my sister and her family so with all the kids and the 2 families the house has a great set up. Lots of parking and in a quiet area. We do all the Cape things like bumper boats, go carts, mini-golf etc but also a 6 minute ride to the boat tours that take you out to see the seals or Capn Kids Fishing trip (both highly recommended). Cranberry Valley a nice course again 6 minutes away....everything is right there from Dennis to Chatham very convenient.

Review the pictures they are very extremely accurate. Its a great vacation house with all the conveniences of home, full AC, fenced in back yard with grill, stocked up beach toys, chairs, boogie boards you name it. Great yard for kids all fenced in with an outdoor shower again great for kids coming back from the beach. House is fully stocked with lots of room for 2 families to move around, decor is great very appropriate for Cape Cod.

Owner is great I have worked with her for 2 years and plan on a 3rd year. Very responsive to email and truly cares about you having a great vacation. Very accomodating and as you will see in the house they use it themselves as well and the home is well kept. We enjoy it and everyone loves it. A home away from home for a week anyway! If you are looking to rent in that area look no further you will really love it.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door, we felt welcome and at home. What immediately met our eyes was how attractively decorated and clean the rooms were. We soon discovered that the house was fully appointed with everything we would need and that all the beds and other furniture were as comfortable as we could wish. Given all we had heard about how crowded Cape Cod is during the summer, we were delighted to find only two or three other people on Earle Road Beach when we made a short walk there each morning through a lovely neighborhood. We hosted a small reunion for family members one evening and found that the kitchen, patio, barbecue, and back yard were very well equipped and able to accommodate our group of 11 people for an outdoor dinner and games. And, the house was quiet, so we slept well and long. In short, everything we hoped to find, we found.

Gorgeous home with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed in this beautiful home for 7 days. The house was very clean, and was stocked with all the necessities we didn't think of... bandaids, bug spray, etc. The historic charm was well preserved but didn't lack any of the modern amenities. The owners were very nice and accommodating, and easy to contact. No bad things to say about this property and owners. Will definitely be staying here again.

Great house and great owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home at the last minute, and we really enjoyed it! The owners were so accommodating and responsive. The house had everything we needed. The home was spotless, and was it bigger than we thought. The backyard and patio are perfect and the outdoor shower was fantastic. The location was great... Just down the street from a small beach yet off a main road and close to everything. We can't wait to go again.

June Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and this beautiful home and helpful owners were instrumental in that. The house is a short stroll to the beach, plenty of toys/movies etc. for the kids. A beautiful fenced back yard area to relax, easy access to a lot of cape sights and activities. Owner was very responsive and helpful in the process.

Wonderful Cape Cod Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed at this home for a week in September 2014 and had a very good experience. The house has wonderful Cape Cod charm that all of us appreciated, especially my grandmother (who visited Cape Cod often in her younger years but hadn't been in a while). We were able to squeeze two kids and 10 adults (four generations!) into the home, and it didn't feel too cramped, there were multiple areas for everyone to find their space to relax. The kitchen was a little tight, but we have a lot of cooks! The backyard was huge, with plenty of room for us to set up some yard games or just relax on the hammock or patio furniture. There were toys upstairs for the kids to play with, and some board games and movies downstairs, too. The storage locker outside is full of chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys to take in a wagon to the beach, which is just down the road. We thought the home was in a very convenient location to the beach as well as other areas of the Cape that we wished to visit. Overall, I personally found this home to be better than advertised. The owners are easy to work with and you can tell they take pride in their home. I would recommend this rental to any family with children who wants to have an amazing Cape Cod vacation. We have already reserved our spot for this September!
