About the property

Private waterfront house in West Dennis! Fantastic views! Dog Friendly

This summer, enjoy your own private waterfront house in West Dennis! Just footsteps away from the Swan River, dive in for a quick dip or launch your kayak! And just 2 miles from Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking! You can actually ride from the property to the bike trail.

This 1,200 Sq Ft 2 Bedroom home with screened in sun porch and 2 decks is yours to enjoy for a very reasonable price.

Located just off Swan River Rd, you will be on a private sand road with just a few quiet neighbors who are often not there. You will be right on the water with kayak put in. To the right of you, take a walk down the path to another water access especially great for fishing. We've caught big bass here within 15 minutes right from the shore! The Swan River snakes its way out to Nantucket Sound, a wonderful kayak out to a swimming point.

The rear of the house facing the water has a large deck with table, chairs and electric awning, ensuring you protection from the sun when desired. There is an outdoor shower, and the view is one of the best in Dennis! Fantastic sunrises and sunsets!

You are 15 minutes walking distance from the town beaches and 5 minutes drive to stores.The perfect combination of convenience and privacy!

We are located not far from the beginning of the Cape Cod Rail Trail and very close to the Dennis Town Beach and West Dennis Beach. We are walking distance from the Swan River Fish Market and Restaurant.

The house is very comfortable with views from most rooms. There are 2 skylights that let in lots of light and breeze. You will enjoy a pretty steady cross breeze through the house.

If you are a pianist, then play the 45 year old Yamaha Grand piano in the living room. Nothing like nice music on the river!



"Gem of a spot! Peaceful and private- great opportunity to unwind and connect with nature. Lots of sunlight, yet house remained cool and comfortable. Fantastic cycling along established paths safe from traffic. There's an easy paddle right from the house to great sandbar where river meets ocean - numerous seabird sightings, excellent area to swim, or take a snooze listening to the gentle rhythm of the waves. Lots of dining options, but I loved grilling on the deck. Best feature of all is the outdoor shower!"

Trish H. from Waitsfield, VT

Peaceful and convenient

"We enjoyed our stay, especially kayaking the Swan River from the backyard out to the ocean for a swim. We also spent a lot of time on the deck with coffee or a drink, and watching the hawks and waterbirds. The house was comfortable and clean, and there were only a handful of houses on the little road, so it was quiet."

Barb S. from Barre, VT

Best Kept Secret!

I have been to the Cape many times and this vacation home on Swan River in West Dennis is a spectacular find. The area is quiet and easy to navigate to local stores, shops and dining. I enjoyed kayaking on Swan River right from the property over to Nantucket Sound! It was nice to walk to the local beach via a quaint walk through the local neighborhood. Dinner and wine on the back deck with a moonlight sky is a fantastic memory I hold. I awoke to the smell of coffee, the ocean air breeze and beautiful sunrises!

Magnificent bird watching, kayaking weather watching are just part of this wonderful place. Quiet sand road with few neighbors. It is fun yet peaceful and inspiring!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here last summer and really enjoyed it. The best part is that it's on the Swan River and the back deck looks out on the beautiful bird filled marsh. We kayaked from the back yard down to the beach or the other way toward a open tidal basin. There is a rental place nearby if you need a kayak. The street is very quiet, only a few houses on it, but still very convenient to shopping & dining out without traffic jams. The house and beds were comfortable, homey, and clean with several skylights. The kitchen has a fancy chef style stove, and we also barbequed. The outside shower is handy for a rinse after a saltwater swim and kids love it. The owner was easy to deal with and we did not have any problems such as trouble getting the security deposit back.
