A perfect vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was a perfect size exactly as advertised. The only issue we had was the walk to the beach had a busy street to cross and that was a problem. Other than that the cottage and beach were perfect.

The best place to go for families!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A perfect Cape Cod vacation home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great beach house for families

  • 5 of 5

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.

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
