Three bedrooms - front bedroom has two twin, rear left bedroom has a queen size, and the rear right bedroom has 2 twin beds.

Loved everything about this home!

  • 5 of 5

I was so pleasantly surprised by this home! The pictures look beautiful but it's even more gorgeous in person. So much space and great views to enjoy while relaxing in the back yard. Beginning and ending every day on the porch made this vacation one to remember. Thank you so much!

Lovely home — an ideal vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in Dennis. The house was wonderful — well-stocked kitchen, books and games/puzzles for my son, linens and towels provided. The porch was wonderful for relaxing and reading or eating meals together. The back yard was a hit, too! My son had a blast playing on the swing set and with the balls and bats from the house. My personal favorite was the outdoor shower — one of the best I've seen!

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We returned this summer to this beautiful home. It is centrally located to beaches, restaurants and shops. The house itself is meticulously maintained, exceptionally clean and makes travel simple by providing linens and towels. The porch which extends the length of the house and overlooks conservation land is the best. We hope to be back next year.

A Home Away from Home...Fell in love Instantly!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming home! Quirky and lovely at the same time, my family settled right in. Everything we needed was there, games for the kids, books, a lovely yard and a terrific porch. I went crazy with my camera catching pictures of bunnies and flowers. Central to everything, yet quiet and cozy. Just LOVED the place!
