About the Property

Highly-rated 3 bedroom walk-to-beach cottage on Cape Cod sleeps 4-5

Our sweet little classic cottage (with baseboard heat) in a charming cottage community under the pines in peaceful and uncrowded West Dennis, evokes that atmosphere of those earlier carefree days when summer seemed to stretch on forever...

Kelley's pond is barefoot steps away across the dead end community private road and access to the lake is via a path between two other cottages to a small, rustic dock. You can also launch kayaks and canoes, paddle boards and windsurfers at another entrance to the lake in the community.

The cottage is a 8/10 mile walk or quick bike ride to West Dennis beach and an easy walk to restaurants, shops and bars.

Sleep 4 (the cottage has one queen bed, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa)

Kelly's Pond is a private lake that has no public launch. There are few boats on the lake ~ the occasional kayak, canoe, sunfish or paddle board. You can portage your boat from Kelley's pond over to the waterways that lead all the way to the open ocean.

There is also a back deck for dining and large backyard - great for games or morning Tai Chi ~

Large first floor bedroom with queen bed.

Two separate sleeping lofts with one twin bed in each with reading nooks, window ACs, and TV/VCR are upstairs under the angled eaves with a banistered walkway in between and accessed by a spiral staircase. The loft sleeping areas are suitable for children older than 6 who don't need to be supervised due to the spiral staircase and banister walkway.

For younger children, there is room in the first floor master bedroom to put any port crib you bring, and there is a queen sleeper couch in the living room. There is also a single camp cot that can be brought down from upstairs, so parents can make their own choices of age-appropriate sleeping arrangements for their children.

Car: Recommended

West Dennis is special among the Cape Cod villages as it has wonderful beaches, restaurants, charming Cape style homes, pristine waterways, marshes, ponds and harbors - all with an unhurried, less crowded pace.

Perfectly located on Mid Cape - it is a great base to explore both the upper and lower capes.

Kelly's Pond is a great lake for swimming, boating and fishing and is steps away from the cottage.

Within walking distance of the cottage, you can rent kayaks and get Windsurfing, Kiteboarding and Paddleboarding lessons and gear.

West Dennis Beach is within walking distance and spans over a mile of shoreline, It is a great spot for windsurfers, kite flying and playing all sorts of fun water and beach games.

There are many beautiful Cape beaches all around - try a different one each day.

The Sundae School is a local favorite for ice cream.

Ferry boats to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are just 15 minutes away at The Steamship Authority and Hy Line Cruises.

World class theater and music at the Cape Cod Melody Tent is nearby.

Cape Cod Playhouse is America’s oldest professional summer theater featuring well known stars for the summer season.

The Cape Cod Museum of Art is a hidden treasure.

Cape Cod Baseball League is a chance to see up and coming future pro players at free games.

Close by, you can rent bikes and there is a great, long Cape Cod Rail Trail that goes all the from Dennis up to Provincetown.

Explore the Cape villages with beaches, stores, restaurants and art galleries - each a short drive away and with its own distinct character.

Whale Watcher Cruises and Lobster Cruise can be found in Hyannis and Cape Cod’s Kid’s Fishing Sea-Fari can be found at Bass River Marina.

There also is the Cape Cod Bay Bottom Fishing aboard the Albatross and Bass River Charters are at Packet Landing, Bass River.

There are so many restaurants around but here are some of our favorites nearby.

O’Shea’s Olde Inne - A Cape Cod Irish Pub is walking distance from the cottage. When you walk through their doors, you may wonder if you have actually walked into one of Ireland’s best pubs. Local musicians play nightly.

Summer Shanty - Our favorite local waterfront bar within walking distance from the cottage and has live music.

Good Friends Cafe - Good breakfast place within walking distance from the cottage and is where the locals go.

Sesuit Harbor Cafe - A casual cafe with outdoor tables and a great waterfront location.

Skipper’s Restaurant - A nice restaurant and bar with an ocean view and award-winning clam chowder.

Swan River Fish Market - A good place to get fresh fish to cook on our grill.

Harvest Gallery Wine Bar - A favorite of ours with wine tasting, good food and live music nightly.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a designer and Cape native who like cottage style and the classic Cape look. Summer Pines Cottage has been lovingly restored and thoughtfully renovated with an eye for a comfort and good design while keeping the charming older details. We have added touches our family would like on vacation and enjoy guiding people to the hidden treasures and 'local' gems we have discovered in this area of the Cape. Renting Summer Pines Cottage has been a fantastic experience—largely because of all the guests who have enjoyed the cottage as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose West Dennis, Dennis, MA, USA:
I chose this cottage for it's beautiful location, period cottage details and waterview setting and lake access.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautiful location with community dock and lake access yet a stroll away from village, restaurants, bars and West Dennis beach.
