Charming cape style home on Lake Wequaquet in Centerville. Centrally located (2.4 miles to Craigville Beach or 3 miles to downtown Hyannis) on a private road. It has a large private sandy beach and is situated directly across from Wequaquet Lake Yacht Club. Swim, play, shop, sightsee or watch the beatiful sunsets from the deck. This home is equipped with new appliances (no dishwasher), including washer and dryer, new bedding and comfy furniture. It also has central air conditioning, heat, cable tv in livingroom and master bedroom and complimentary wireless internet. This home is smoke free and does not accept pets.

Please note this home has a maximum sleeping occupancy of 6 persons at all times. There is one king, one double and 1 bunk bed (suitable for children or small adults).

Inside the home we have games, cards, books, maps, brochures, menus and DVD's. There is a full size refrigerator in the kitchen and a slightly smaller one on the enclosed sunporch.

Outside toys include beach pails, shovels, water toys, badminton, bubbles and misc. yard games.

In addition to the 2 patio tables and chairs, our deck overlooking the lake also has built in seating. There is a gas grill and we supply the gas.

We also have a portable metal fire pit and tiki torches for use on the beach. Wood for burning and tiki oil is sometimes available.

On the beach we provide 4 adirondack chairs. We do not supply foldable beach chairs/loungers or beach towels so you may want to bring those. Although our beach is sandy, water shoes are highly recommended for swimming as the bottom of the lake can be a bit rocky.

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our stay at this charming house. This house had everything you can think of, we hardly left the house. Never needed to go to the beach, why would you when you have this beautiful lake to relax on. I have two small boys and this location was absolutely perfect. We literally were outside every morning on the lake. We loved it so much we are already booked for next year! Owners were great!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with family for a week and it was absolutely perfect! The cabin is on a secluded inlet with a rare sandy beach. The lake was warm, the weather sunny, and the cabin was clean, comfortable and had every ammenity available.

If you are here with kids, you may want to check out Mayflower beach nearby. It was gorgeous and the water was warm and shallow, perfect for kids. But really, you should stay on the property and enjoy it as much as you can.

We had swims every day, campfires almost every night, and ate fresh seafood off the BBQs (I say BBQs because there is a regular one and also a coal fired smoker). It is a perfect spot to explore the Cod!

To top it all off, the owners are incredibly hospitable and kind. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect family getaway location!

Great inviting home, perfect for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. The owners are great hosts and live next door, which is a huge advantage in case you have urgent question or need. One day the grill was out of gas and Michael brought refill even before we asked! Michael was responding to all questions within minutes and was extremely helpful (although we didn't have any problems or issues).

House is very well equipped, clean and perfect for a small family. The deck is overlooking the lake, which makes the family gatherings a unique experience, especially when the swans' family is visiting :)) We loved the fact that the house was built in late 30th and owners kept its character; it was neat to be back in times while visiting such a historical area.

If you like to explore, a number of beautiful beaches, historical places and restaurants are within short driving distance. Make sure to visit Provincetown, Plymouth (especially if you have kids -- the historical village is a great education & fun place), Dennis beaches and the Cape Cod National Shore State Park! If you are ocean beach lovers, we recommend to buy a weekly parking pass in the local community center -- that's a huge saving since most of the beach parkings are paid. However, if you want to escape the crowd and swim or walk on the beach after hours (normally past 5 pm), the parking is free and most of the people are gone.

We loved every single minute on the lake private beach -- the waters are clean, warm and calm.

We are already missing the Cape Cod paradise and will make sure to return in the nearest future. Thank you again for everything, Arthur, Irina & Andrew

This property is everything it says it is and more. Spacious living quarters, with various rooms for quiet time or dining. THe master bedroom is huge. Even the towels were great. We enjoyed having a microwave for those leftovers you seem to always bring home from last night's dinner. Sitting by the lake on a Sunday afternoon, just enjoying the quiet time was very relaxing.

If I had anything negative to say it would be that the house had a musty odor.

LOCATION, LOCATION,LOCATION !! This home is located on a very quiet dead end street with your own beach and lake in the backyard !! The house is neat and clean with Central AC and a washer and dryer that come in very handy. It is close to all the Cape has to offer and minutes from downtown Hyannis. Pauline and Mike are the best hosts and they make you feel comfortable and welcome at all times. I have stayed here with my family the last two Summers and have already booked my week for next year. This is the place to stay for a wonderful Cape vacation !!
