The Bunk Bed House
The Bunk Bed house provided a "home away from home" for our family. We found everything exactly as it was described. All the photos gave an accurate feel of the house and its amenities. Also,having the linens provided was wonderful and a new experience for us! Our ages ranged from 50+ to 13 and everyone was comfortable and found some aspect of the house that made their stay enjoyable from internet access, an ipod dock, a spacious kitchen, deck, grill, outdoor shower, lawn for bocce.Every person was happy! The washer and dryer made it easy to have everything back as it was when we arrived after our two week stay. The owner was very prompt and responsive to any questions we had about the house and its features. We would definitely recommend this house to friends or relatives. The absolute best nights were when we ordered pre-steamed lobsters from Swan River Fish Market or grilled and ate on the deck...glorious!
The house is 8/10 of a mile to the West Dennis Public Beach. As our kids are older (13 and up), this was a doable walk on pavement. I would actually drive our gear down early (before 8 a.m.) on the days we were beaching and set up camp, drive home then we'd walk back when we were ready to be at the beach to avoid the $20 parking fee! (With unpredictable teens, this was perfect as they charge $20 for any portion of the day whether its all day or an hour but there is a weekly pass you can get from the Town Hall for $75 for the week if your group is pretty predictable.) With strollers/wagons, it would still be easy for families with younger children.
Some of the food places we enjoyed while on the Cape were pizza from Paradise Pizza after swimming (order by phone and pick up is much faster than delivery), going to The Sundae School BEFORE dinner thereby beating the crowds:) For fancier fare, we loved the Cape Sea Grill and Bucca's...so yummy! We saw several fabulous productions at the Cape Playhouse in Dennis on the north shore and in nearby Chatham at the Monomoy Theater. There are absolutley too many things to do in so short a time. We highly recommend just being still, in the early morning, with a cup of coffee on the deck as the sun rises...stunning!
The bottom line is that the Bunk Bed House was everything it promised to be from a location that is central and with an owner that couldn't have been more responsive and helpful. You will enjoy your stay without a doubt!
