This well-maintained Cape house, situated along the banks of the beautiful Herring River with easy access to Nantucket Sound, is ideal for those seeking a quintessential Cape Cod vacation.

The unique private waterfront property, comprised of two lots, has been owned by one Massachusetts family for 63 years. It is particularly suited for those who love the outdoors. Enjoy fishing, boating and kayaking from the private beach and dock. Enjoy the 2 kayaks provided or bring your own boat up to 25' and tie up at the dock. Swim in the warm, clean river water. And don't forget your fishing rods and hand nets if you like blue crabs! South of the Lower County Road Bridge, sailors and boaters can have safe harbor and quick access to Nantucket Sound.

The classic Cape sleeps nine, with one bedroom on the first floor and three on the second floor. Its interior features a central living room that opens to a cheerful sunroom offering wonderful water views. The kitchen looks into a formal dining room.

Outside, it has an expansive yard for playing and picnicking and an outdoor shower. There is ample parking for house residents and their guests—and even space for your boat trailer, if you have one.

The property is in close proximity to Belmont Beach (0.5 miles), Pleasant Road Beach (0.7 miles) and bike trails, in addition to Harwich Port shopping and dining and Dennisport shopping and kids’ activities like mini-golf, bumper boats, batting cage and go-carts.

Great week with the family. Many wonderful memories created

  • 4 of 5

If you’re looking for a waterfront house with old Cape Cod charm this is it. We spent hours floating in tubes tied up to the dock, fishing, crabbing & kayaking. We caught lots of scup (made great fish fry) a king fish, snapper blues & manhaden (bunker) which we used as bait in the crab traps. You should see the size of the crabs. The house even had huge pots for our lobster & crab boil which we enjoyed outside at the double length picnic table. When we were tired of playing off the dock we sat in the chairs on the bank to enjoy the shade & river breeze. Even enjoyed a night by the outdoor fire pit making s’mores.

The house is roomy. Could use some upgraded sunroom furniture or covers. The kitchen is fully equipped. We enjoyed breakfasts at the large dining room table. Played cards and games in the sunroom. Great breeze through all the windows. The bed on the main floor was super comfy. Love having an outside shower & with great water pressure.

Location is great. You can walk to the beach & jetty. Even take a long walk to shops & ice cream.

We had a wonderful time and would recommend this house to others.

West Harwich family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at this property and it just keeps getting better. Once a year, our family gathers from different parts of the country so this week is very special. The house accommodates us perfectly with enough beds and social areas. The living room can be used by the adults while the kids are playing in the sun room. And meals happen around the large dining table or outside at the picnic table.

But the most loved area is the dock. Everyone gathers there - in the early morning for coffee then later for swimming and fishing. Pleasant beach is really within walking distance - our favorite beach. Beach in the morning, jumping off the dock in the afternoon. It really is what makes this property so special to us.

Everything we need is there and the house is spotless when we arrive. There is enough space so people can have some privacy- we never feel that we are on top of each other.

We look forward to next year!

Relaxing; well-appointed; wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this property for at least one week per summer for three years in a row. We love the location on the Herring River because we can fish off the dock or take a quick swim without leaving the property. Our young children love playing on the small beach, finding shells, etc. The proximity to beaches and ponds, plus Harwich's understated amenities (restaurants, shops, library, town field, rail trail) have all made it an ideal vacation spot for our quiet-natured family. And the house itself is very comfortable and well-appointed. Truly, it feels like a home away from home. We cook and grill most days, make s'mores on the firepit, and lounge in the sunroom playing cards during our time indoors.
