|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Stroll down to the beautiful Pleasant Road Beach. With soft white sand, friendly ocean air and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, it is regarded as the best family beach in Harwich. The house is centrally located and minutes from all essentials of an ideal Cape Cod vacation - Harwich center, a major supermarket, restaurants, the Cape Cod Bike Trail, Cape Cod Baseball League, the Nantucket Ferry, and boat launch at the Herring River. Situated on a private road, it is ideal for family gatherings with a very large open living room, a cute den, two TVs and a large backyard with swings and a hammock. All amenities are provided. Have a picnic, cookout in the yard, or enjoy a warm outdoor shower after a day at the beach! As much as the adults will enjoy the peace and quiet of the ocean shore, kids will have great fun at nearby venues such as trampolines, go-carts, and mini-golf. Come have a perfect vacation! Our guests love the house and have chosen to return. You will love it, too.
Things to do: Harwich Port's harbors provide easy ferry service to Nantucket and Seal Watches on beautiful Monomoy Island. Chatham's lighthouse, boutiques, and antique shops are just a short drive away. Take a day trip to Cape Cod National Seashore, Provincetown, Wood's Hole, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket Island, Hyannis or the lighthouses (Nauset, Three Sisters, and Truro).
We just got back from staying here July 9-16th. It had plenty of room for our family of 6. The cottage is walking distance to the Pleasant St. Beach. It is close to everything!!! The outdoor shower was a godsend after the beach with young children, it's a must! I was also happy there was a washer and dryer. The older kids played volleyball in the spacious yard while my little guy played on the swings. I would definately come back!
The house was more specious than I have expected for 8 people. The large open living room and dining room was ideal for us to spend time together in the evening. We were able to find interesting books on Cape Cod on the bookshelves and the kids like the board games and movies they found in the house.
The house is very close to the family friendly beach and close to Harwich shopping area. The outdoor shower was very convenient when we returned from the beach. The owner is thoughtful in providing all amenities and we were able to find everything we need in the house from pots, plans, wine glasses to beach/yard toys. We used the grill many times for our cookout and enjoy the large yard. The house is centrally located and excellent base during the week at Cape Cod.
I look forward in coming back again next summer.
Recommendation: Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children
We loved our time here - excellent location for families. Beach easy walking distance and nicest beach around! House perfect for kids, and extra beach toys and games left by owners were a big hit. The outside shower was the preferred location for everyone after a day at the beach and the outdoor tables were well used by us for meals. Great value and excellent communication with property owner.
Everything was great. The house, the location, the beach, the yard. Everything we wanted or needed was there for us, we had a great time.
This immaculate home had everything we needed for a wonderful family reunion. Seven people had plenty of room. The house was even better than what was described online. Every possible amenity was available. The kitchen was very workable and well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and even a dishwasher. The extra large living room was conducive to conversations, games or movie viewing. I would definitely recommend this home to a friend.
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.
