About Frances Rich

My family has owned the cottage since I was 6 years old! My husband and I love to take tenants clamming or crabbing if they want to come with us. We live next door to the cottage and can help you with booking a fishing trip or anything else!

Fabulous rental, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a vacation! The house is perfect, pictures don't really do it justice. Plenty of space, tons of outdoor living area as well. We stayed a week, 2 teens, and the inlaws. Plenty of room, and privacy in the house. Walk to Merkel Beach, and short drives to other beaches. Harwich Port was a great location, and the downtown is quaint, fun shopping and restaurants. The owners live behind the house, they are there if you need them, and graciously took us clamming and crabbing one morning. We all LOVED that, and then invited us over for cocktails and steamed clams and crab dip that evening. The house is well stocked! Plenty of kitchen items, dishes, utensils. There are some games, puzzles, skim board and boogie board were there. Even beach chairs, though we had our own. There's a clothes line out back near the fabulous outdoor shower. I think if you rent here you will be pleased. No negatives. Well, we should have stayed a month:)
