About Dean

This beach house was a replacement for an early 20th C cottage that disappeared in the great Blizzard of 1978. In 1980 we moved back on the lot and built on piles. I am a retired environmental planner/urban development consultant; my wife teaches Russian at Tufts University. We have been in Cambridge since the early 1960's. We share this lovely getaway with relatives from California.

Dean purchased this house in 1964

Why Dean chose Scituate

A cousin at Harvard Medical School found this beach in 1964 with his three boys, and he purchased the original cottage there. The family has enjoyed this getaway ever since. We also appreciate the fact that we are less than an hour from Cambridge/Boston.

What makes this house unique

Great beach walks; digging clams; great variety of seascape and beach;

Could not be any better.

This place is outstanding and provided myself and a group of friends with one of the best weeks I've had in a long time. The house is spacious and provides ample space for lots of guests to have their own private space on the middle and upper floor but also have wide open communal areas on the ground floor and outside deck for eating and hanging out.
The middle floor bedrooms provide plenty of room for couples with the king size beds but also enough room for blow up mattresses for children. The top floor where i stayed is amazing, its almost like having a second apartment within the house, large king bed, sofas, beautiful flooring and an amazing view.
The living area has everything you could ask for, the kitchen is well equipped with enough big pots for us to feed a small army with a lobster dinner one night and for those who don't like seafood theres the grill out back! Sitting out on the deck at any time of day was my favorite aspect of this house but the evening provides you with brilliant sunset views.
The beach was perfect for the 3 young children we had with us, plenty of rock pools to explore and the water was warm enough for me to take several swims a day.
The owner was great, communication was easy and pleasant and all questions were answered clearly and quickly. Check in and out also was quick and easy and everything that could be done to accommodate and make our trip easier was done.
This place really did feel like home for a week, i hope to be back.
Thank you again to the owners for providing us with the platform for an unforgettable week and for booking the good weather!

Perfect for a family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect spot for our family of 6 with lots of space for guests and plenty of amenities for all ages. The owners were very helpful with answering our questions and making sure we had a pleasant stay. The kitchen was well-stocked, and there were plenty of kids toys and games, beach chairs and other equipment, linens and beach towels, etc. We didn't lack for anything, and the house was clean and well maintained. The top floor with bedroom, bath, roomy living area, and balcony (with fantastic views) is amazing. Scituate Harbor has some very good restaurants, and the ferry to Boston from nearby Hingham is quick and easy. We strongly recommend a day trip to the big city. The house is right on the beach - you can't get any closer. Walks at low tide were so nice, and watching the sun rise and set while sitting on the front deck.....it doesn't get any better than that. We highly recommend this property and hope to return soon.

You can't get any closer to the water than this house! Many hours were spent relaxing on the deck while the kids played in the sand below us. Perfect house for families. Lot's of space for everyone and well kept and clean. Dean is wonderful and helpful. Can't wait to go back next year!

Our party of 8 recently spent a week in Scituate. It was everything we hoped for and we learned to pronounce it correctly! Walking on the beach with the dog walkers each morning was a highlight. School children on a field trip came another day and studied sea life right outside deck.
Location was great. We visited Fenway Park, Martha's Vineyard and walked into Scituate and enjoyed the shopping. Caught the commuter train from North Scituate into Boston on two separate occasions.
Place was very well equipped and we appreciated the TV being equipped with a PVR
The recommendation in the book as to where to buy lobsters was excellent.
Will definitely recommend this property to friends.

Just recently got back from Scituate. Had an absolutely wonderful time! Loved the house. Arrived late at night and we were wonderfully suprised to wake up to such an amazing view! Water was right up to the house! Loved it!!! Walked the beach at low tide and all of us talked about how that simple walk was a highlight of our trip! (So relaxing) House was everything that was promised. Loved how well the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need. Dean was also a great help in giving suggestions for places to see. Much appreciated. Would recommend this property and would love to go back.

Wonderful time at the beach

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a vacation week here. Our party of 9 had plenty of room. For the first 2 days we had 11 people and still weren't cramped (two young children slept on mattresses on the floor of their parents' rooms, with parents in king beds; grandma had a double bed, two college grads had a room with twin beds, and two people rattled around in the huge suite that is the third floor). We loved being right on the beach. Just sitting out on the deck was like being at the beach. When I called the owner before booking, and asked about the amount of sandy beach, he was honest and said it depends on the tides. It could be rocky if the tides sweep in a huge amount of rocks. But during our stay, we had a good amount of smooth sand whenever it was low tide. At high tide, we sat on the deck or played games with the kids inside or collected pretty rocks. The house does sway noticably on its pilings (at times) which can be startling, but you get used to it. We did a lot of cooking. The kitchen had almost all the gadgets we needed, including a potato masher (as well as toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, and tea kettle). Shaw's grocery store nearby was very satisfactory (we had four vegetarians in the party by the way). The house is very comfortable with a large living room and dining area. The only downside was the amount of stairs for grandma to get down to the beach. We highly recommend this house for any large group where everyone can manage stairs.
