About Leslie Raycraft

Joe grew up here in Dennis and currently we are 3 long hours away from Cape Cod, living in W. Hartford CT where there are no beaches! We have 3 kids, one teenage daughter and 2 teenage twin boys, so live is crazy busy. We bought this house when the boys were 9 months and my daughter 2 1/2, so we have had many great memories here.

Leslie Raycraft purchased this house in 2004

Why Leslie Raycraft chose Dennis

My husband grew up in Dennis not far from here and we love Dennis. When looking at homes, I fell in love w/ this place - the gardens - all the roses and hydrangeas thru out the property, the fountain in the backyard, the horse head posts as you enter the driveway (although we've had to take them down b/c one got broken by a renter). The beaches here are fantastic - the sand is so nice and the tide goes out far so there are tide pools to play in, but not so crazy far out as Eastham. Last summer we rented in Eastham & I learned just how lucky we are in Dennis to have all the beaches that we do - our sand is so different from other places, nor does the tide go out past 13 sandbars! We are so centrally located in Dennis village - being walking distance to everything. There are so many cute shops to visit. Having the bike trail here is awesome - love having the ability to bike to different towns with my kids. I love the private feel I have in the backyard and love even more the huge front yard we have so that the kids can run around and play. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Great spot for our family for the week!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. You can tell the owners know what they're doing. We felt very at home. Most importantly, the yard was perfect for our 21 month (and us) to run around and play in; Perfect size and fenced in.

Wonderful stay in this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our August stay in this beautiful home. The location is perfect-a short walk to Corporation beach. Everything you need is provided. The layout of the house is great, and having 1 1/2 baths plus the out door shower useful. Central air and great wifi were also pluses, and the house is well stocked with beach chairs, books, and games. The hammock in the front yard is perfect for naps :). The owner, Leslie, is extremely pleasant, and so nice to deal with. We would definitely stay here again!

Splendid September vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week in Dennis at this immaculate home. Fun was had by all. Beaches were great. The large yard gave us time to gather with friends and family. The owners were just a phone call away if anything was needed. We will definitely rent again next year. Bring clothes and food and enjoy this beautiful home. Market Basket stop on the way down was perfect - thanks for recommending.

Fantastic Memorial Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the long Memorial Day Weekend. We absolutely loved this house! It had everything we needed and our family of 7 were extremely comfortable all weekend. As mentioned in other reviews, the yard is fantastic! We spent a lot of time playing sports there and even had a picnic in the front yard. The house was a great location for exploring the rest of the cape by car but also a super easy walk or bike ride to the beach. The owners were lovely to deal with and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. The only negative was having to pack up and leave. I highly recommend this property and hope to stay there again!

Perfect location for a relaxing beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property has a lovely front garden and rear area with patio chairs and tables. There is also a table in a screened area behind the garage. The house was very comfortable for our family of five including 3 daughters aged 21, 17 and 13. There is an efficient air con system in the house and lots of shade in the garden. The house is very well equipped with big screen TV, excellent wi-fi, everything you could need in the kitchen and two dining tables inside- one in the kitchen and one in the dining area. The house was very clean and tidy with everything in working order. We had a very relaxing week here- its a very quiet area. We had done loads of sightseeing in Washington DC, Lancaster PA and NYC and so we didn't go too far afield. It was great not having to use the car to get to the beach and so you can just choose exactly when you want to go and not have to fight for a parking space on sunny days. There are beach chairs in the garage room to use. The nearest beach is only about 8-10 mins walk away and its a lovely area for strolling around- lots of people out walking, jogging and cycling. The beach was lovely- we swam every day. Matt swam when it was raining and there was no one else on the beach- but there again we are British and used to rain. We also walked into Dennis Village a few times- its also only a 10 min walk away. Interesting little shops and places to eat. We liked the Cape Cod Chat House for a cup of tea/coffee and the most enormous pieces of cake. Route 6A is a lovely road that goes through lots of interesting little towns. It seems much less busier on this side of Cape Cod with less development. Leslie and Joe were very helpful with the questions we asked about the booking and when i needed to ask them anything about the house when we were there they got back to me straight away. We would love to come back to this house if we make another trip over to the North East US. Lovely house and lovely location- I would recommend it without reservation!

p.s.loved the outdoor shower and we now know what a 'bulk head' is- we don't use the same word in the UK!

Charming, sweet home!

  • 5 of 5

I call this home a "home" because that is exactly how our family felt. We have 3 kids, ages 17, 13, and 4. This home had something for everyone. The toys, books, and videos were a hit with our daughter, and our boys were quite pleased with the flatscreen tv. My husband and I loved the yard, especailly the hammock, for an afternoon beer. The decore is bright and cheery, with tons of natural light. Although we spent most of our time on the Cape out exploring, we looked forward to coming "home" and relaxing. The location is central to everything-beaches, restarauunts, museums, etc. The yard is so private, and beautifully lush! My daughter and I had tons of fun showering outside. Oh, and the wildlife was a nice surprise - bunnies, a hummingbird, and even a turkey visited our yard. Other pluses were the beach chairs, coolers, and beach toys. Leslie has thought of everything outfitting her home for guests. I could rant forever. To sum it up, I did not want to leave our beautiful vacation home and have already started lobbying my husband to return next year.
