This historic Victorian in the heart of East Dennis offers the charm of an old house with the conveniences of modern living. Our spacious home has beautiful period woodwork, hardwood floors, tasteful furnishings, a stained glass front door and foyer, central A/C, and recently renovated kitchen and baths. The tidal marsh can be seen from the quiet north bedroom, while the other bedrooms are bright and sunny. The house received a 2013 Historic Preservation Award from Dennis Historical Commission.
The first floor has a newly renovated (2012), fully equipped, and thoroughly modern kitchen with a gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. Also on the first floor are a pantry, a dining room with a table that seats 12, a large living room with a study area, a comfy sitting room with flat screen TV, and a powder room. Upstairs are three large bedrooms and a smaller one, a full bath, and plenty of closet space. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, one has two twins, and the fourth has a bunk bed (twin-over-full). A wrap-around porch, outdoor shower, gas grill, and secluded, spacious, flat back yard with a large picnic table make the house ideal for relaxing outside. Guests may use the washer/dryer in the unfinished basement. The attic is not accessible to guests.
The house is on a large wooded lot that faces Route 6A and extends back to the marsh on Sesuit creek. Marshside Restaurant, the Lost Dog Pub, the post office, a convenience store, and the liquor store are all just a 5 minute (.25 mi.) walk away. Cold Storage beach is a 30 minute (1.6 mi.) walk and the beautiful historic towns of the mid-Cape and sprawling beaches of the outer Cape are an easy drive.
Parking in the driveway is available for several vehicles. There is local bus service in Dennis and among Cape towns, but no direct public transportation to the house. Various locations on the Cape are served by buses from Logan Airport (Logan Express) and Providence and there is rail service from Boston to Hyannis in the summer.
We generally rent Saturday to Saturday, but ask about other time frames. You’ll need to bring your own sheets, towels, and beach towels, unless you arrange for us to provide them for an extra charge.
For children, we provide two pack-n-plays (folding crib) and a dresser-top changing pad. There are two twin sized air mattresses (with an electric pump) and two booster seats for the dining room. There are beach toys and board games in the house.
