CHARMING COTTAGE ON FRESHWATER POND WITH PRIVATE SANDY SWIMMING AREA

Harwich - Harwichport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This 'change house', one of the oldest in the area built more than 90 years ago to provide a freshwater swim after salt and sand, started with three simple rooms: a main room with a native stone fireplace and two changing rooms upstairs. It still has the original main room and the rustic stairs, so several additions and a recent renovation have created a modern and charming cottage. The main room is the living and dining area (a/c, table seats 10). Also on the first floor: master BR with private full bath; twin BR; full bathroom; large modern kitchen (granite counters, ice maker, microwave, china, glassware, cooking gear, washer/dryer nook); bright, sunny sun porch.

Second floor has queen BR & twin BR (both a/c), large full bathroom, DirecTV room with window seat, VCR, DVD, libraries. House is Wifi, also has fax.

Brick patio has teak furniture, is surrounded by roses, heather, ornamental bushes. Sidewalk runs past outdoor shower thru lawn to path under trees to pond with boardwalk to swimming float, near brick patio for picnics. Lawn for croquet game. Woods between both adjacent properties.

Sunfish sailboat, 2 kayaks, rowboat, diving float in deep water, and horseshoe pitch shared with property next door.

We rented this cottage 37 years ago, purchased it 22 years ago; enlarged, renovated, updated it while spending summers here until we retired nearby five years ago. Our children learned to swim, sail, and catch frogs here, and now bring their friends here before and after the season. We can't wait for grandchildren! So we look forward to welcoming you, and wish for you as happy a time in the cottage as we had.

Ted Borman purchased this cottage in 1992

We rented this cottage in 1975 and then again in 1991 because of family and friends in the neighborhood; after the 1991 rental, our children loved the cottage and swimming, we had wonderful family memories, and friends, authors and writers who borrowed it loved it, so we bought it. The friends who had visited it describe it as charming, lovely, quiet, private, unusual.

Movies, upscale shopping, musical theater, gourmet food and grocery stores, antiques, museums - ten to 30 minutes away.

Velvety, clear water; nearest neighbors swim 100 yards away and grandchildren are the voices to be heard. Lie on the private swim float at night: shooting stars are not uncommon and the sky is a million points of light. In the daytime, the cottage is invisible from the pond because of the white pines and hardwood trees we planted over the years. Sit on the patio, and there is nothing more private or quiet; we have to look hard to see another house.
