Great place for a family stay
The house is efficiently laid out - 4 bedrooms opening onto the living room area. Except for the master, which was larger, the other bedrooms are small but adequate. The master bath has a very small shower, small sink and the washer/dryer. The second bath is off the sunroom, away from the bedrooms. There is also an outdoor shower. All were very clean. The kitchen is dated but clean and well-equipped. Generally speaking, the cottage is showing its age, but solid and clean (no bugs!). There are ceiling fans in each room plus extra portable fans, which kept us comfortable.
The house is on a narrow, sandy road, about 1/2 mile walk (or drive - $20/day to park) to the beach, which was well-attended but not too crowded. There were 4 beach chairs and a few toys available. The small Weber grill did not appear usable, and the gas grill was dirty but worked fine after we cleaned the grate.
A large tornado had just hit the area, so there were trees down, and tree cutters every day (noisy, but necessary and temporary). Otherwise, it was a very quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Close to Rte 28 and all kinds of activities.
It worked very well for our family of 5 adults and 1 child - plenty of seating, two TV areas with lots of DVDs from which to choose. It was reasonably priced and in a good location.
nice place that only needs a few improvements to be great
Nice older home enjoyed by all of us. The plumbing had some issues but we worked with it. All was clean except the rugs which we understood since the vacuum cleaner did not work properly. Nice location within walking distance of the beach. Quiet neighborhood with the exception of the trees being cut down, wood chipper etc., which we understood since the tornado had gone thru that area the week before. Also, please note the gas grill worked as long as the top was opened. Electric sockets by the couch are not right, so we just didn't use them. We had wonderful weather ourselves and enjoyed our week there.
Tucked away on a little dirt road, near Rte 28. Walking distance to Pleasant Road Beach in West Harwich. Need to cross a street, so keep a hand on the little ones. Big yard a plus.
Great house in a great spot!
Vacationed here with younger children and had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is lovely and also very well equipped, the back yard is amazing, and wonderful beaches —both ocean and pond — are mere minutes away.
Definitely hoping to come back!
It was a good week in Cape Cod!
Nice 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, all on one floor. There is a huge backyard with a small swing set and a relaxing hammock. It's a rather short walk to the beach, but not impressed with beach. The day we arrived there were 8 or 9 dead horseshoe crabs laying in a group (man-made arrangement) and so much seaweed between the beach area and the good swimming area. But, there were a lot of people there and there were life guards on duty.
Thanks for staying with us and writing your review. The beach may have been unraked since it was changeover day--one of the main reasons we bought here is the wonderful family friendly beach!
Harwich has miles of ocean and freshwater beaches. Bring or rent a bike to enjoy the Cape Cod Rail Trail, only 2 miles away. The town has over 600 acres of open space and conservation lands for walking, jogging, and bird watching. Bike through the fresh water pond district and stop to have a swim. Fish on the bridges over the Herring River just around the corner. Launch a kayak in the river or on the 743-acre Long Pond a few miles away. Miniature golf, batting cage, bumper boats, trampolines, go-carts, and Harwich Mariners of the summer baseball league are minutes away. Dine at the many indoor and outdoor restaurants in Harwich and Chatham, or enjoy a root beer float at the local A&W. Play golf at one of the finest public courses in the US, Cranberry Valley, or at one of the less challenging courses, the Harwich Port GC. Shop at the Christmas Tree Shops nearby or relax in the top-notch town Library.
Other Activities: shopping, fine dining
