Harwich - Harwichport House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 - 10)

Our West Harwich home has all the charm of yesteryear with the comforts and conveniences of today. You will find a mix of the old and the new, with wide pine floors, lots of windows, Cape Cod dormers and a farmhouse feel balanced with the newly updated kitchen and baths, cable TV and wireless Internet access. With sleeping accommodations for 8 - 10, our home is well suited for two small families, a large inter-generational family, a girls get away or a few couples. A large open living area and three outdoor living spaces - a large deck, a patio/grill area and a screened front porch - provides plenty of room both inside and out for togetherness. There are also lots of nooks and crannies for that late afternoon nap or reading.

We are located on a quiet street, 4/10 mile from Nantucket Sound beaches. Additionally our location offers easy access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail (and we have bicycles for your use!), you can walk to a park at the end of our street with trails and a playground for children or walk in the other direction to town for ice cream, pizza, art galleries, shops and restaurants. We think it's the perfect spot for rest, relaxation and fun!

Our home comfortably sleeps between 8 - 10 people. There are two bedrooms on the first floor (1 queen, 2 twins) and a full bathroom. The upstairs has three bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, 2 twins) and another full bath. Each room has a dresser, night stands and reading lamps. Some have a small TV as well. The beds are comfortable and cozy. You'll sleep well after a day in the sun, swimming, good food and drink, a bike ride or a round of golf. There is something very peaceful about falling asleep in the quiet Cape Cod night, with the ocean breeze and the sweet smell of sea air.

The house comes with a fully equipped kitchen, including lobster pot and crackers (you will need to supply your own bibs!). There is a coffee maker, microwave, oven, toaster, and dishwasher. There is a gas grill on the patio. Common spices are stocked in the kitchen for your use as well. For those of you not so into cooking, there are many great restaurants and local take-out places in Harwich. The bathrooms are newly updated and very clean. We also have a washer and dryer on the first floor and a large outdoor shower.

Our home will be well prepared for your arrival. Upon entering you will note the warmth and simplicity of the decor and begin to unwind and relax. The house will be immaculately cleaned (with environmentally friendly products), the beds will be made and the outdoor furniture set-up. All you will need to do is unpack and meander to the grocery to stock up for the week. If something is not right, we are just a phone call away to make it right!

Cape Cod Charm - All Year Long!

Although most people think that summer on Cape Cod is the best season, we love the Cape all year long. Each season offers its own special magic. Fall is beautiful with the changing color of the leaves, the warm bay and ocean water, cranberry fall festivals and craft shows, the always available seafood, warm days and cool nights. Springtime on the Cape is when everything comes alive - the budding trees, the flowers, the calm sea and lots of pre-season specials. Winter is truly the quiet time on the Cape, but there is a special feel from Thanksgiving to Christmas in the small towns and villages. Shopping for holiday gifts, looking at the lights and long walks on the beach are some of the highlights. And summer - sun, swimming, bike riding on the rail trail, kayaking, mini golf, ice cream, barbecues, outdoor showers, walks along the shore and just hanging out - what more could you ask for?

Our West Harwich Charmer has quickly become a place we call home. It is our little piece of quiet simplicity in a sometimes hectic world. We know you will love it as well. Let us know if you would like to visit.

Summers on Cape Cod are a tradition for us. It is really a place where memories are made. I will soon be an 'empty nester' and look forward to exploring the Cape in the off season and sharing the Cape in the summer with my 'grown' children, friends and family. I am a licensed psychologist by day - the outdoors, the fresh sea air, the meandering in quaint shops and little towns and good food on the Cape feed my soul.

Robin Sesan purchased this house in 2010

We spent many summers vacationing and exploring Cape Cod before deciding to purchase our home in West Harwich. For us, Harwich 'has it all'. Ideally located half-way between either end of the Cape, Harwich has spectacular salt water beaches on Nantucket Sound, the largest fresh water ponds, miles of biking and hiking trails, conservation land, boating, fishing and award winning golf courses. The seven villages of Harwich all have their own unique feel, with fabulous restaurants, shops and art galleries. Harwich is a small New England town. The feeling is relaxed and the people are friendly. And we have the Harwich Mariners, our own Cape Cod Baseball League team.

We looked at many houses before purchasing this home. Our home has a simple elegance to it, with a calm, cozy and relaxed feel. There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting on the deck, drinking coffee in the morning and listening to the birds and Nantucket Sound. We love that we can walk to the beach and to town and that children feel safe in the neighborhood and are able to explore on their own. As food lovers, we also enjoy the many restaurants close by and ice cream 'on demand'.

A Most Enjoyable Stay

  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
From Our Guest Book: Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home. We had a most enjoyable stay with plenty of amazing warm sunshine during our visit. We didn't need any of the warm clothes we packed. We were very comfortable here, and our 18 month old son absolutely loved the yard. It was his first family vacation, and even he seemed relaxed and at home. We hope to return again!

From Our Guest Book: What a perfect haven to spend my first visit ever to Cape Cod. I felt so at home here. Your home gave me rest, relaxation and a special warmth with all the amenities of my home back in Minnesota. Should I ever return to Cape Cdo, I will surely try to come back here. Thank you, thank you for making your beautiful home available for our very special week.
P.S. I was here to attend a wedding at the Waquasett Resort.

My boyfriend and I were attending a wedding along with some friends. The resort where the wedding was being held was just too expensive so we decided to rent a home for the weekend instead. As soon as I saw the listing for this home, I knew we had to stay here. Robin, is a pleasure to work with and keeps up a lovely home. Very clean and comfortable atmosphere. Plenty of room for parking as well. The home just has so much charm that my friends and I were saying " we could grow into this place" Tons of room for 10 or so people to sleep. Already planning a trip back, hopefully during the summer this time!

Lovely home with hardwood floors and great floorplan that allows for multiple families to have their privacy. The property manager was very responsive and answered his phone 99% of the time or responded within minutes.
Lots of reading materials about the Cape and novels for relaxation; also puzzles were plentiful.
Quiet neighorhood, house is tucked away from the road, lots of outdoor seating areas - big deck in the back had table, chairs, umbrella. Very nice - my grandson loved playing in the big yard!
The home was clean on appearance, but one of my guests practices yoga an found underneath the bed very dirty - not a big deal but something that the owner may want to note.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. It is very important to me that our home be immaculate for guests upon arrival. I appreciate your feedback about this matter and will address this immediately with my housekeeper.

We have stayed at this cottage twice. We really enjoy the set-up and charm. The deck and front porch add extra getaway space and allow quiet spots for reading.
Looks small from outside but this is deceiving. There is plenty of space in the house and bedrooms. We like walking down to the park & track each morning for exercise.
The cottage is nicely decorated. Plenty of extras for cooking and eating.
We used Earle and Pleasant beaches this summer both very nice ---about 5min drive.
AC installed this yr in the house made it refreshing after the hot summer we had!!

Very happy !
