Overview

Harwich - Harwichport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 queen size sleeper sofa, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Come relax & unwind in this spacious, beautiful and newly renovated 1,100 square foot, 2 br, 1 bath cottage in Dennisport. It is tucked back in away from the main street on a quiet side street. You will love the location of the cottage - as it is within walking distance to downtown village (about 7 minutes) where you'll find a wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor, newly opened pub / restaurant, a great coffee/biscotti house, an ATM, convenient store, liquor store, drug store, pizzeria, the General Store and a few other interesting shops and restaurants - all within walking distance from the cottage. Drive 5 minutes or 3/4 of a mile down the street - at the end of the road - and there are the BEACHES - many to choose from!

Cottage is considered Mid-Cape - which means it's centrally located to visit many of the other beautiful quaint Cape Cod towns all within a short drive from the cottage. That includes the ferries to Martha's Vineyard in nearby Hyannis (about 10 miles from the cottage) or the ferry to Nantucket - even closer - about 5 miles from the cottage.

For visiting the beaches - the cottage is also a short bike ride to the beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. We recommend driving - as you'll want to take the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach accessories with you that we provide for your use.

Cottage is newly furnished, painted and decorated with all modern amenities including Hi--def flat screen tv, cable, wi-fi, dvd player, i-phone doc for music, pack n' play, outdoor shower, cd/radio, AC, brand new beds & bedding, fully equipped eat in-kichen with toaster, microwave, coffee pot, lobster pot, washer and dryer. I have a terrific current DVD collection if you get a rainy day or just want to have a family movie night. I also have a nice selection of coffee, teas, staples, linens, bags, foil, laundry detergent and fabric softener and even toilet paper for your use. So no need to haul all of this with you - it's there for your use. All linens and towels provided.

The spacious family room has a fireplace, new comfy furniture w/ queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 2 in the LR. Covered front porch w/ 2 rockers to sip your morning coffee and plan your day. Enjoy outdoor BBQ's in our spacious outdoor space. There are several different lounging and eating areas throughout the yard if you want to escape the kids and read a book by our chiminea w/ a glass of lemonade or glass of wine. You can choose to sit in the sun - or under one of our 50 foot pine trees in the backyard or even take an afternoon nap on the hammock. Enjoy our fire pit making s'mores in the evenings after dinner. Our shed is filled w/ horseshoes, softball/mitts, v-ball, bad mitten if you're up for a little fun with the kids!

Love biking? Whether visiting in spring, summer or fall, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is within minutes from the house. It's a scenic, paved 22 mile path that stretches from South Dennis to Wellfleet complete w/ restrooms & scenic stops en route. Why rent a bike? For your pleasure, we provide 5-6 bikes with helmets. Also, beach chairs and beach towels are provided for your use. NOTHING TO BRING BUT YOURSELVES!

House is non-smoking - and pets are not accepted. Parking for 4 cars

House not big enough - or want separate space for inlaws, friends?? Rent our smaller cottage out back - charming 2 BR w/ all amenities (property # 3023171 on homeaway). Completely private & fenced in. .

Why Melisa Cooper-Davis chose Harwich - Harwichport

We've been returning to this area year after year since our first trip to Nantucket - and have been in love with New England since. Dennisport is central - mid cape location - close to lots of quaint shops, clean and beautiful calm waters of the Nantucket Sound. A little slice of heaven! The people are lovely.

What makes this cottage unique

Excellent mid-cape location. Short drive to any of the other towns in the Cape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister and I stayed @ this great house for 5 nights and just loved it! Quiet, private location that had everything we needed from wonderful comfortable beds & nice linens to a well-stocked kitchen! Even stainless steel pans! First time in all my Homeaway rentals over the years that I didn't have to go to Job Lot to buy something that was missing! Warm & cozy during the rainy days we had and very clean! We enjoyed the firepit outdoors & we got to meet Melisa & Ed who get a 10+ for customer service! They are friendly & fun and so concerned about our satisfaction.



We would stay here again and highly recommend this property as it's centrally located to beaches, shopping, and restaurants and it's cute, comfy and beautifully maintained!

Great vacations with a lot of extras

  • 5 of 5

This well kept, beautifully decorated and centrally located home in the mid cape area of Cape Cod made for the perfect base camp after long days at the beach and travelling from Woods Hole and up to Provincetown. It was nice to come home at the end of a busy day and unwind by the fire pit with the family. The house has a very well equipped kitchen with just about anything you can think of including a waffle and panini maker. When I talked to Melissa a few days before our trip I realized that I didn't need to bring the usual supplies that I normally would when renting a house, like linens, cleaning and laundry supplies. As far as beach items, I left them all at home because beach towels are provided, as well as chairs, a lot of toys, boogie boards, skim boards, beach umbrella and beach cart. The bikes were also a huge plus too. All of the extras at this home really made it easy to pack and have a stress free vacation at the Cape. Thank you Melissa and Ed for making our first visit to the Cape a great one!

Wonderful retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Sweet Retreat. The first time was great, and since Ed and Melissa invested so much time and effort working on the house to make many improvements, it was even more wonderful this time.

First of all the weather was perfect all week (although I don't think they had any control over that!!!). It was also so nice to see that the kitchen and living room are now connected via a lovely eating/drinking bar. There is so much light in the living areas now and the decorations are just beautiful. Very beachy and colorful. It makes you happy just to sit on the sofa and enjoy it.

There is a lot to do on the Cape. We enjoyed visiting Provincetown, Sandwich, Chatham, Yarmouth, Barnstable,and Orleans in addition to Dennisport. Have a look at the turquoise information book in the living room (it matches the rest of the house!). There are many places to eat on the water and the Oyster restaurant in Dennisport just a few short walking blocks from the house is excellent, although not on the water.

Ed and Melissa are very kind people and they provide many amenities that most rentals don't have.

We will surely go there again.

Great Stay!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Sweet Retreat. The cottage was in the perfect location!!!! We traveled the whole Cape and enjoyed every minute. We were within walking distance of town and we certainly enjoyed walking to shops and dining.

Our weather was perfect. And our trip to Nantucket was a joy. One week was not enough. Thanks to our hosts, our week helped us make wonderful memoies that we will cherish forever.

Beautiful visit to Cape Cod in a clean, cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent trip to Cape Cod for our 15th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a beautiful cottage located in a private, peaceful location. It was just a short drive away from many attractions, beaches and great restaurants. The owners were FANTASTIC in helping us with all the little details of our trip. They gave us suggestions and directions to restaurants, local towns and day trips like Nantucket (a big hit!!) and whale watching. The cottage was fully stocked with everything from coffee to bath linens, beach towels, beach chairs and bikes. The lotions and hand soaps throughout the cottage were also very much appreciated. The entire process of securing the cottage via on-line booking was easy and a breeze to work with. We are definitely planning to go back again!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cottage for our first ever visit to the Cape. I chose it based on previous reviews, it's charm, and the added perk of bikes provided. Melisa was like having our own concierge service. Always available, engaging, and gave wonderful tips of things to do for 'first timers', this service was the greatest benefit as we were clueless as to where to start. The Cottage was in a great, somewhat central, location for navigating the Cape. One of the best meals we had was at The Red Nun just down the street. The home had everything anyone would need in the kitchen if you plan to do meals at the house. It has loads of Cottage charm and makes you feel right at home. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer than 4 nights, but with Melisa's help we packed in a lot while there. Thank you, Melisa! We look forward to coming back to the Cape again, your assistance and lovely Cottage made our stay, perfect!

Cape Cod Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone. We have been renting properties for years and this is definitely the best. Melisa and Ed have thought of everything and responded to any queries quickly and efficiently. Although the weather was not the best it didnt stop us from getting out and exploring the Cape and also allowing us some down time. We will definitely be back.
