Overview

Dennisport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 queen size sleeper sofa, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Come relax & unwind in this spacious, beautiful and newly renovated 1,100 square foot, 2 br, 1 bath cottage in Dennisport. It is tucked back in away from the main street on a quiet side street. You will love the location of the cottage - as it is within walking distance to downtown village (about 7 minutes) where you'll find a wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor, newly opened pub / restaurant, a great coffee/biscotti house, an ATM, convenient store, liquor store, drug store, pizzeria, the General Store and a few other interesting shops and restaurants - all within walking distance from the cottage. Drive 5 minutes or 3/4 of a mile down the street - at the end of the road - and there are the BEACHES - many to choose from!

Cottage is considered Mid-Cape - which means it's centrally located to visit many of the other beautiful quaint Cape Cod towns all within a short drive from the cottage. That includes the ferries to Martha's Vineyard in nearby Hyannis (about 10 miles from the cottage) or the ferry to Nantucket - even closer - about 5 miles from the cottage.

For visiting the beaches - the cottage is also a short bike ride to the beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. We recommend driving - as you'll want to take the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach accessories with you that we provide for your use.

Cottage is newly furnished, painted and decorated with all modern amenities including Hi--def flat screen tv, cable, wi-fi, dvd player, i-phone doc for music, pack n' play, outdoor shower, cd/radio, AC, brand new beds & bedding, fully equipped eat in-kichen with toaster, microwave, coffee pot, lobster pot, washer and dryer. I have a terrific current DVD collection if you get a rainy day or just want to have a family movie night. I also have a nice selection of coffee, teas, staples, linens, bags, foil, laundry detergent and fabric softener and even toilet paper for your use. So no need to haul all of this with you - it's there for your use. All linens and towels provided.

The spacious family room has a fireplace, new comfy furniture w/ queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 2 in the LR. Covered front porch w/ 2 rockers to sip your morning coffee and plan your day. Enjoy outdoor BBQ's in our spacious outdoor space. There are several different lounging and eating areas throughout the yard if you want to escape the kids and read a book by our chiminea w/ a glass of lemonade or glass of wine. You can choose to sit in the sun - or under one of our 50 foot pine trees in the backyard or even take an afternoon nap on the hammock. Enjoy our fire pit making s'mores in the evenings after dinner. Our shed is filled w/ horseshoes, softball/mitts, v-ball, bad mitten if you're up for a little fun with the kids!

Love biking? Whether visiting in spring, summer or fall, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is within minutes from the house. It's a scenic, paved 22 mile path that stretches from South Dennis to Wellfleet complete w/ restrooms & scenic stops en route. Why rent a bike? For your pleasure, we provide 5-6 bikes with helmets. Also, beach chairs and beach towels are provided for your use. NOTHING TO BRING BUT YOURSELVES!

House is non-smoking - and pets are not accepted. Parking for 4 cars

House not big enough - or want separate space for inlaws, friends?? Rent our smaller cottage out back - charming 2 BR w/ all amenities (property # 3023171 on homeaway.com). Completely private & fenced in. .

Why Melisa Cooper-Davis chose Dennisport

We've been returning to this area year after year since our first trip to Nantucket - and have been in love with New England since. Dennisport is central - mid cape location - close to lots of quaint shops, clean and beautiful calm waters of the Nantucket Sound. A little slice of heaven! The people are lovely.

What makes this cottage unique

Excellent mid-cape location. Short drive to any of the other towns in the Cape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister and I stayed @ this great house for 5 nights and just loved it! Quiet, private location that had everything we needed from wonderful comfortable beds & nice linens to a well-stocked kitchen! Even stainless steel pans! First time in all my Homeaway rentals over the years that I didn't have to go to Job Lot to buy something that was missing! Warm & cozy during the rainy days we had and very clean! We enjoyed the firepit outdoors & we got to meet Melisa & Ed who get a 10+ for customer service! They are friendly & fun and so concerned about our satisfaction.



We would stay here again and highly recommend this property as it's centrally located to beaches, shopping, and restaurants and it's cute, comfy and beautifully maintained!

A very relaxing, beautifully furnished property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking forward to staying at the cottage after having planned this trip 6 months earlier. We live in the UK and so the trip over the pond to New York City and subsequent week long stay at the cottage was very special for us! We arrived on a Sunday evening after a long drive from New York City so we were tired when we arrived. We were very impressed when we saw the house for the first time and even more impressed when we opened the door at the rear and walked through the kitchen into the lounge. It was so cozy looking and inviting and we just wanted to collapse into the comfortable looking sofa placed facing a large TV cabinet and that’s exactly what we did! We explored the house and were very impressed with the whole place. Our stay that week was very comfortable and we didn't want to leave the following Saturday. We could have stayed another week at least! Cape Cod is a lovely area and we didn't even see half of it. The house just made it even more special and we would definitely stay there again. The house is referred to as a cottage but to us, coming from the UK, this is not a cottage sized house. It is very spacious and so is the large garden at the rear. There are also many additional extras included for your use such as bikes, beach equipment etc and the garden has plenty of chairs to relax in.

I didn’t meet Ed and Melisa but from the communication I had with them and a couple of telephone calls when I was there it was obvious that they are very nice, friendly people and couldn’t do enough to help with any advice or assistance requested. If you have a problem, they are keen to get it resolved as quickly as possible.

Both my wife and myself would definitely recommend the house to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay right in the middle of Cape Cod and close to the beach.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

"Sweet Retreat" is the perfect name for this quaint cottage. My husband and I along with our 12 year old son and his friend recently vacationed and stayed at Sweet Retreat. It was so nice to vacation and not have to worry about a thing other than packing our clothes. The cottage is absolutely beautiful! The kitchen was fully equipped and the pantry was fully stocked with spices, coffee, etc. Fresh linens and towels (even beach towels) were also supplied. The house was beautifully located for the boys to ride bikes (also supplied by Melisa and Ed). The beaches in Dennis are absolutely beautiful! Corporation Beach by far was our favorite. Melisa and Ed also supplied beach chairs. There are numerous restaurants on the Cape to choose from. Our favorites were The Lobster Pot; Oliver's and The Lobster Claw. This was by far our most relaxing vacation!! Absolutely would recommend this Sweet Retreat!

Another fantastic week!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time returning to Dennis Port and staying in this beautiful cottage and it was just as perfect as we remembered from last year! The cottage is clean, beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need. It is quiet and peaceful and the yard is perfect for relaxing by the fire and making smores, which was a highlight of the trip for our little ones. Melisa is extremely friendly and helpful when it comes to planning your vacation and answering any questions you may have about your stay or Cape Cod in general. It's been a pleasure working with her the past two years! We ate many of our meals at the house because of such a well stocked kitchen but also enjoyed going out a few times. We had a DELICIOUS breakfast at Ruggies in Harwich, dinner at Captain Parkers (yummy chowder!) and another tasty dinner at Ember in Harwich Port (delicious speciality pizzas and outdoor seating if you make a reservation!) We purchased a beach pass for the week, as per Melisa's recommendation, and were able to visit a few different beaches in Dennis. West Dennis Beach was nearby and perfect for swimming and Corporation Beach was gorgeous and perfect for looking for seashells and hermit crabs, especially during low tide when you can wade out really far out into the water! Perfect for children! We played mini golf and jumped on the trampolines in Yarmouth, rode the carousel in Hyannis and sampled ice cream from a few different places including Sundae School, Katie's and the Cape Cod Creamery. We also drove out the other direction on the Cape and took our little ones to the Drive-In movie theater in Wellfleet, which was such a thrill for them! It was like traveling back in time to the 1950's and we ate at a fun, delicious spot called Moby Dicks beforehand. Along the way we stopped to check out the view of the National Seashore at Marconi Station and also stopped at Nauset Beach to see the lighthouse and take in another view of the water. So beautiful! All in all our vacation to the Cape was amazing and we hope to return again! The cottage was the perfect place to come "home" to after busy days at the beach or on the town! Thank you Melisa and Ed for providing the perfect "Home Away" from home for the second year in a row!

Truly a "Home Away" From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three rented this house for our first trip to Cape Cod, last week. The house was very clean, well decorated, and so comfortable that it didn't take long to feel at home. It looks exactly like the photos...there were no surprises. We were not on the beach, but only a short drive away from beach and even closer to a CCRT bike trail parking lot. After driving through town, I appreciated that we were not in the congested area of cottages closer to the beach. We would arrive "home" after a day's excursion of biking or exploring beaches to peace and quiet, a large backyard, and firepit for smores. We had neighbors in the smaller cottage behind the property but, with the privacy fence, never even heard them. I enjoy cooking and given that the house was so well stocked, we only ate out a few times. There were plenty of staples, including spices, sugar, coffee and filters, tea, cooking spray, olive oil, plenty of cookware and grilling utensils! The collection of DVDs was an added bonus. In addition, the shed was also fully stocked with beach chairs, lacrosse sticks, footballs, frisbees, bikes, beach caddy, life vests... everything you'd need or want. We biked close to 50 miles on CCRT, Old Colony, and Shining Sea trails, enjoyed the West Dennis Beach, Annie's and Sundae School for ice cream, and the Wee Packet restaurant...nice thick chowdah! Dennisport is not as commercialized as some of the other towns, which was perfect for us. We enjoyed our stay in Cape Cod and were very pleased with this property and Melisa's attention to detail. She was quick to respond to questions before and during our trip.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was a great spot for a family vacation. The house had everything we needed in order to just settle in and relax. We didn't venture out of the area to much. We walked into town for a few things, but needed our car to get to most places but everything is so close. Melissa and Ed were responsive about any questions we had. We enjoyed West Dennis Beach where it was easy to unload all the kid beach gear and the water was super warm in June! We ate ice cream at all the local spots and played mini golf in town(Susan's golf and the ice cream next door were awesome!) All were our 5 year old favorites!!! We checked out the North Side for Lobster in Sesuit Harbor Cafe and indulged in an adult only dinner at Fin. The fire pit in the backyard one evening was a great place to relax and there was plenty of space for our son to run around and play. Great affordable place to stay. We enjoyed it.
