About the property

Exceptionally Clean, Quiet and Convenient!

This comfortable and spacious classic Cape Cod-style house is custom-designed and offers bright, open rooms in a secluded, natural setting. Its location is superb: a family-friendly Pleasant Bay beach is minutes away. In the other direction, a large shopping area provides convenient access to groceries and other daily needs.

Decorated with Pottery Barn furniture and fabrics, the house is fully equipped and extremely comfortable and features central A/C, cathedral ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, French doors to a private deck and a Cape Cod summer must-have - a wonderful screened porch with wicker furniture and a large picnic table, ideal for morning coffee and pest-free lobster dinners and cookouts.

Rent small boats, enjoy sunset cocktails or have a fabulous meal steps from the house at The Wequassett Inn, one of Cape Cod's most distinctive hotels. Launch your boat at Round Cove Landing. Jackknife Beach (ideal for children as well as paddleboarders, kayakers, and windsurfers) is less than a mile away. Sailing lessons - for adults and children - are offered daily at Pleasant Bay Community Boating.

The size of the house and its proximity to both the Wequassett Inn and the Eastward Ho! Country Club makes it a lovely setting for wedding parties and is ideal for intergenerational family gatherings as the main floor is only two steps up from ground level.

Have a Boat? Power boaters will find a convenient public boat ramp at nearby Round Cove ( which empties into Pleasant Bay) just minutes from the house. You can easily launch your boat, park your trailer at the house, and be on the water within 10 minutes.

Love to Golf? For golfers, three fine popular public golf courses are also close by: Chatham Seaside Course, Cranberry Valley, and the Captains Course.

We were on the Cape for a family wedding in Brewster and stayed for a week at this lovely house. It was clean, bright and surprisingly spacious for our party of 8 plus an infant. The back yard deck looks out on woods and feels very private. The screened porch was wonderful and the bedrooms are well spaced so that the rest of us never even heard the baby when she woke up at night. Staying in Harwich was great - an easy drive to Chatham, the Cape Cod rail trail, Nauset Beach, etc. While the Wequasset Inn was in walking distance, nothing else was and the roads in the area did not have enough shoulder for safe biking so you definitely need a car. There was a nice supply of beach chairs, toys, board games and yard games and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you'd need for cooking. There is a full sized crib AND pack n play, plus a booster seat for an older child (it doesn't strap to a chair so not good for the infant) and 2 gates to block off areas not child-safe. FYI for those with kids...there is no high chair and not all the outlets are covered with child protectors, but we moved some around to child-proof the rooms they'd be using most. The only thing we were a little concerned with was the yard being all in the front of the house and right on the road which, while not a main road, was travelled by fast cars. It turned out to be fine - we just kept the kids back away from it, but younger children need to be fully supervised outside. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and/or stay again if we return to the Cape!

Wanted to love it but.....

  • 3 of 5

Nice property but definitely had some issues. There are no room darkening window treatments anywhere in the house, including the sky lights, so early morning brightness was an issue. The door to the screened-in porch is swollen/warped and should be addressed. The lockset for the door leading from the TV room to the deck also needs to be addressed. Other than that, the place was good.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I should have written this review early because my family and I had such a wonderful time staying in your home on the Cape! We gathered for a family reunion and this house couldn't have been better. There were plenty of room for us to spread out and great space to get together as a group. It was great that the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we'd need to cook and we loved eating dinner on the screened in porch. The house is also perfect walking distance to the Wequassett Inn and Round Cove and just a short drive to some great swimming spots. Thank you for making your home such a wonderful place for families to gather. We will return soon.

Relaxing and spacious home on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting Cape Cod for a wedding at the Wequasset Resort and were thrilled to stay at this spacious and clean home . We were able to walk to and from the wedding. The house has lots of privacy that our extended family enjoyed, including mother with infant. We had fun cooking in the large and well equipped kitchen and used the gas grill. The beds were very clean and comfortable. We were very happy to have a great internet connection.
