Dennis Village Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

This 18th century rustic Cape Cod cottage is on almost 2 secluded acres and has a 200-foot lakefront with beach, boathouse with a bar, kayak, canoe, and Hobie Wave catamaran right on Scargo Lake. With its own swimming and boating beach on freshwater Scargo Lake, the setting alone promises a memorable vacation. You can in the same day swim in the salt waters of Cape Cod Bay and in the pristine water of Scargo Lake and still find time to sail around the lake and feed the ducks and swans. Just glance at the review below to see why people love to vacation here and often return. Click below on 'More Details' for an elaborated description of the cottage and the Dennis Village area.

The cottage has a full kitchen, an air-conditioned living/dining room, and two air-conditioned bedrooms upstairs. The cottage sleeps six with a queen bed in one bedroom, and a full bed in the second bedroom. A queen or single air bed can be used downstairs in the living room. All floors are hardwood. Cable TV and WiFi are provided. The cottage has a washer & dryer, dishwasher, full stove with oven, and propane heat for off-season vacations. In addition to a just-renovated bathroom, the cottage has its own outdoor shower with hot and cold water. The boathouse has a bar with bar stools and large windows right on the lake. The 200' lakefront is ideal for outdoor dining. At the lakefront is a fire pit where families can gather, make music, watch the moonlight over Scargo Lake, and cook around the fire.

Glacial Scargo Lake is famous on Cape Cod for being both serene and clean. Only sailboats, canoes, etc. are allowed. The lakefront is so quiet that one can often hear the beachgoers playing at the public beach on the other side of the lake, half a mile away. Cape Cod Bay beaches (Howes and Corporation) are a 15-20 minute walk from the cottage (or a 2 minute drive), so one can swim in the bay and rinse off in Scargo Lake’s crystal clear water. Famous Mayflower beach is less than 5 minutes drive away. The lakefront has 3 entrances into the water for swimming, one a sandy beach that is great for children as it is shallow for a considerable distance before the water deepens. The lake is also excellent for sailing, canoeing or kayaking and tenants may use the Hobie Wave Catamaran sailboat, kayak, or canoe (life jackets in the boathouse-mandatory). Bass and trout fishing, including fly-fishing and ice fishing, make the lake a year-round fishing paradise.

The cottage is located off 6A in Dennis Village, a village unchanged since the 1950s. Although set back from the road and secluded by vegetation, the cottage is easily within walking distance of the village. The property is a short walk (5-15 minutes) from the Cape Playhouse (world famous off-Broadway theater), Cape Cinema ('art' films, not commercial fare) Cape Cod Art Museum (well worth a visit, Cape artists), local restaurants (many excellent, some exceptional) and the center of town (a gazebo). A large shopping mall is a ten-minute drive to Patriot Square. The area also has great hiking and biking trails. The review that follows below confirms that people love to vacation at the cottage on Scargo Lake, as will you.

My family (myself, my husband and 3 kids ages 21,18 and 13) stayed at this cottage the first week of July. The location is perfect! Right on Scargo Lake and less than 1 mile from the bayside beach. Dennis is a great area, it's not too crowded, there are plenty of restaurants and if you want more excitement the busier ares (Hyannis,Chatham,etc.)are a short drive away.
The property was very clean. There was enough room for the 5 of us.The kitchen, though small, was well equipped although we did very little cooking. We used the outdoor tables and chairs to eat our meals.There are a variety of restaurants nearby as well as a small grocery store. It was great to have a kayak and a canoe available. The sailboat was too complicated so we didn't use that. It was great to just sit in one of the lawn chairs in the morning with a cup of tea and enjoy the quiet.
The owner,Verity, was very easy to work with. She was very accommodating.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

PERFECT location. Close to everything!

This cottage was quaint, cozy, clean and well maintained. It had all the necessities. It was extremely comfortable. The cottage was real cape cod! It looked small from the outside but its very deceiving. It was not small inside. The living space was perfect. The bedrooms had air conditioning and the beds were extremely comfortable. We had 4 adults and 3 teen children in our party and fit comfortably. We truly LOVED the cottage.

The property is huge and it was awesome having the lake with a sailboat, canoe and kayak while walking distance to the beautiful beaches. I was able to satisfy the entire family!

The homeowners were extremely flexible and helpful! You can not go wrong with this rental at all! DO IT!
