Overview

Dennis Village House Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms, 2 baths

A truly 18th century Cape Cod house originally built from ship timbers on Nantucket and floated over by barge to Cape Cod. With its own swimming and boating beach on freshwater Scargo Lake, the setting alone promises a memorable vacation. The property, just under 2 secluded acres, has a 200-foot lakefront with beach, boathouse with bar, kayak, canoe, and Hobie Wave catamaran sailboat. You can in the same day swim in the salt waters of Cape Cod Bay, also in the pristine water of Scargo Lake and still find time to sail around the lake and feed the ducks and swans. Just glance at the reviews below to see why people love to vacation here and often return. Click below for an elaborated description of the house and the Dennis Village area.

The house on Scargo Lake sleeps 6 in 3 air-conditioned bedrooms (an aero bed is provided for additional guests -children and teens love it) and offers a new full kitchen that opens to a charming Revolutionary era dining room with antique furnishings. The fully equipped kitchen has a huge refrigerator, Jennair stove, dishwasher, two sinks and plenty of workspace. All rooms have hardwood floors and quaint wallpaper. There are two bathrooms (one with a tub and one with a new circular shower). Adjacent to the patio, there is an outdoor shower with hot and cold water The house has a 21st century, central air-conditioned addition: a huge second dining room and living room with four skylights and Italian marble floors with a wall of sliding glass doors that open up to an outdoor deck -a perfect place for a family gathering or barbecue (has a propane gas grill). Cable TV and WiFi are provided as are a washer & dryer and a brand new natural gas furnace and four-heating zones for off-season rentals. The 200' lakefront is ideal for outdoor dining. There is a fire pit at the lakefront where families can gather, make music, watch the moonlight on Scargo Lake, and cook around fire.

Scargo Lake is famous for being serene and clean. Only sailboats, canoes, etc. are allowed. The lakefront is so quiet that one can often hear beach-goers playing at the public beach on the other side of the lake, half a mile away. CC Bay beaches (Howes and Corporation) are a 15-20 minute walk (or a 2-minute drive), so one can swim in the bay and rinse off in Scargo Lake’s crystal clear water. Mayflower beach is less than 5 minutes drive away. The lakefront has 3 entrances into the water for swimming, one a sandy beach that is great for children as it is shallow for a considerable distance before the water deepens. The lake is also excellent for sailing, canoeing or kayaking and tenants may use the Hobie Wave Catamaran sailboat, kayak, or canoe (life jackets in the boathouse-mandatory). Bass and trout fishing, including fly-fishing and ice fishing, make the lake a year-round fishing paradise. The boathouse has a bar with bar stools and large windows right on the lake.

The house is located off 6A in Dennis Village, a village unchanged since the 1950s. Although set back from the road and secluded by dense vegetation, the house is easily within walking distance of the village. The property is a short walk (5-15 minutes) from the Cape Playhouse (world famous off-Broadway theater), Cape Cinema ('art' films, not commercial fare), Cape Cod Art Museum (well worth a visit -Cape artists), local restaurants (many excellent, some exceptional) and the center of town (a gazebo). A large shopping mall is a ten-minute drive to Patriot Square. The area also has great hiking and biking trails. The reviews that follow below confirm that people love to vacation at the house on Scargo Lake, as will you.

Fall on the Cape!

  • 4 of 5
My family and I spent a lovely Columbus Day weekend at this great house. We were a large party so also took the small, charming guest house on the property. The main house is half antique with updated and renovated kitchen and bath and half large great room with big dining table and sofas in front of a large TV. We loved the property - a canoe, kayak and hobie for the lake and a firepit to gather around at night. We also had music to watch the fire to as the boathouse has electricity and it's great to listen to as you watch the fire! To sit and watch the ducks and multiple species of birds cruising on the lake in the morning was magical! And sunset over the lake was amazing - the Cape in the Fall is truly beautiful. The small guest house has a wood burning stove and is cozy and charming with 2 snug bedrooms for 2 of my daughters. The beach is a very short drive or a 15 min. walk and the Dennis market and stores are also only a 5 minute drive. I would highly recommend this property for your next vacation!

Perfect homes for a Wedding Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time in Verity's two homes right on Scargo Lake. We rented them both as the bride's house for a Wedding weekend that occurred at The Dennis Inn nearby. The houses had everything we could have wanted AND MORE! We loved the boat house with full bar setup and used the kayak and canoe to paddle across the lake and meet some friends. The yard was picturesque and was a perfect setting for our bridal photos! We would definitely recommend this place, especially for a large family or friend gathering.

A perfect Cape getaway

  • 5 of 5
Scargo Lake is a hidden gem on Cape Cod, and this house is a hidden gem on Scargo Lake. We spent a week there in August 2013 with another family, and it was great. The house we stayed in is really two houses fused together, a very old Cape-style cottage and a recent addition with sliding doors and cathedral ceilings. The old part is quaint and cozy, and the new part had plenty of room for big dinners with family and friends. The lake is great for swimming and fishing, and we used the owner’s Hobie cat and canoe. The grounds are beautiful – a day spent reading by the edge of the lake is a great day. We spent our evenings by the fire pit. The location is one of the house’s great features – not only is it on the lake, but it’s just a few minutes’ walk from the Dennis town center, with its Post Office, library and shops, and the Red Pheasant restaurant is just up the street. The salt-water beaches of the bay are nearby, too.

Absolute Winter Wonderland Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
I have been visiting the Cape since I was 6 months old. Sadly, my family no longer owns any Cape properties, so I now rent once or twice a year. In February I rented this amaaaazing property and could not have been more pleased. The house was clean, warm and had all the charm of a true Cape home. The grounds were equally as fabulous as the home. Sooo much character! I enjoyed the snowy yard and the frozen lake as much would have during the warm summer.
I truly felt at home, enjoying making breakfasts and dinners in the well supplied kitchen. The beds provided comfortable and cozy rest. Bathrooms were great..big by Cape standards.
The house is conveniently located for day trips to local destinations...Hyannis and P Town were a quick drive...even in the snow!
The owner of the property is extremely friendly, attentive and accommodating. She made every effort to make sure that I was happy and enjoyed my stay.
Overall, I have to give this experience an A++. A grade I seldom feel is earned.
I look forward to my return to this lovely home in August.

Perfect spot to enjoy Scargo Lake and good friends

  • 5 of 5
This is a gem of a spot on beautiful Scargo Lake. The lake, beach area and lawn are perfectly gorgeous. The house is very comfortable and the owner Verity is lovely, kind, relaxed and very helpful. There is a canoe and Hobie Cat, both in good order. The lake is among the prettiest on the Cape. You can walk into town center in North Dennis. The bayside beaches are also a walk or quick bike ride away. Two adult couples shared the house comfortably, with kids and guests dropping by all the time. Our dog was welcome and loved it too. We hope to return year after year and give it our highest possible recommendation.

Classic Cape vacation but better

  • 5 of 5
This centrally located older Dennis village house was just a real charming place to stay. The older part was classic with low ceilings, smaller rooms and lots of windows. The newer part provided lots of space and air with a large table to sit around and a nice cable fed plasma TV (no HD). We just loved walking around in it and up to it from the lake (especially at night after a bon fire when it was all lit up.) It had AC in the bedrooms that helped a lot and also a cabled TV in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen was modern and had everything we needed. The dinning room off the ktichen is where we ate our dinners family style and talked endlessly. We're a family of 4 with a14 yr old boy and 13 yr old girl. Both enjoyed the house. Having the lake available with the Hobie Cat made for a nice split between beach and lake fun. We went to Mayflower beach 3 days and didn't get there until 2 or 3 any day spending our mornings hanging out at the house or on the lake sailing. We also had family visit and there was ample space for air matresses with a nice huge one provided by the owner. Having linens service and the 2 bathrooms, 1 with a shower and 1 with a tub, are key and laundry is great to have. An outdoor shower would have been nice after coming back from the beach or lake but other than that it was just a lovely, awesome place to stay. We wish we could have stayed for two weeks.
