    "What a fabulous house! It's on a quiet street south of Rt. 28, the first street past the Chatham border, so it's easy to get too. The house is quite roomy, a big living room, a den, dining room, good kitchen, very nice family room with lots of nautical charm, 2 bedrooms upstairs in the original part of the house, and two bedrooms over the garage. Plus the den can be used as a bedroom because there is a comfortable pullout couch. Great small grill in the back. Best part of the house for me was it's location. It's about a mile to a wonderful Nantucket Sound beach, Red River Beach. You can walk or ride a bike (about 1/10 of a mile is on Rt. 28). Or you could drive about 10-12 minutes to get to some fresh water ponds (Seymour or Long Pond, both of which are partially in Harwich). Or you could drive about 15 minutes to a spectacular ocean beach in Orleans, Nauset Beach. It was all so easy! About 1/2 mile from the house is an entrance to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, in fact I used it to ride to Nauset Beach. As to shopping, downtown Harwichport is a 5 minute drive, and charming downtown Chatham is a 10 minute drive. Then there's a big Stop & Shop on Rt 137, a 7 to 10 minute drive. The house is just centrally located for so many activities. Almost forgot, there are two great ice cream parlors in Harwich no more than 5 to 7 minutes away: The School House (my favorite) and Sundae School. This house was a great find!"

  • Comfortable and quaint historic home!

    "What a wonderful stay we had at the Sidney Brooks house! We had some unforeseen circumstances that led us to be without a place to stay on the Cape while on an extended family vacation (six adults, a preschooler, a baby, and a dog!). We couldn't believe our luck that this home was available and we were accommodated so quickly and thoughtfully. Our request was answered within minutes, and we were even able to check in early given our circumstances. When the cable went out briefly and when we accidentally blew a fuse during our stay, the hosts handled it immediately and kindly. The house is a gorgeous historic home located in the lovely Harwich town center, across the street from a wonderful town park with access to the bike trail (and the hosts give access to a shed full of bicycles -- which we thoroughly enjoyed!). Getting to other parts of the Cape is easy, and the house is perfect for relaxing at "home" as well. We cooked, played games, hung out in the hammock and played baseball outside in the spacious yard, and enjoyed lots of family time together in comfort. The rooms are large and furnished with everything you'd need (the kitchen is small but well-stocked, minus a microwave -- understandable with old home wiring!) and the layout is nice. The stairs were a little steep for our young child (he just needed supervision) and the old floorboards had some errant nail heads -- just things to be aware of in an old house. Those are the only tiny flaws I can think of in this wonderful home. We would absolutely stay there again! We were homesick for our "home away from home" when we left!"

  • Wide Open Space

    "Rooms were vast, except for the two smaller lower level bedrooms. Kitchen, living and dining areas were all one huge cathedral-ceilinged space. Fourteen people - us - could stand touching outstretched arms and not fill it. Lots of sunlight. Four cars parked next to the two-car garage (not used). The lawn held both our croquet and badminton at once. We sat 14 for dinner on the wide porch, moving chairs around as needed. Kitchen equipment, games and books were plentiful; beach chairs and umbrellas nice. Host was helpful and attentive. At about $60/person/day it was affordable. Not ADA compliant, but with help I managed the three steps to get in and out."
