Laura and I live on the North Shore about 20 minutes North of Boston. We are two working professionals with two beautiful daughters. Both Laura and I came from families that would make it a tradition to plan their annual vacations on Cape Cod. We were married a few years ago at the Lighthouse Inn on West Dennis Beach. The area has always been a draw for us and we were always looking for reasons to visit. That's when we decided to purchase a home in Dennisport. We are happy to share our getaway with travelers and we hope you and your family will have similar memories of the Cape that we have. The cottage has been visited by people from around the world. Some recent visitors have traveled from Hong Kong, Canada, Denmark and many states throughout the US. Recently, we had a couple exchange wedding vows in our backyard.
John purchased this cottage in 2010
Being located on a Fresh/Salt water lake with a river that connected to the local beaches and being less than 2 miles the beaches located on Nantucket Sound - was one of the draws to purchasing our cottage. We also love the street that it is located on. Being a circle - it makes it safe for walking, riding your bike and even going for a jog. The yard is quiet and tranquil with beautiful views and easy access to the water. The lake is beautiful and very quiet. The back yard over looking the water is both private and well cared for. Great for BBQ'ing, relaxing on the hammock, sitting down by the water or having dinner on the deck.
Some of our favorite benefits of being on Swan Pond would being able to access the lake with the canoe and Kayaks. Having the private deck with water views is rare on the Cape and its something we look forward to every time we visit. The cottage is always very clean and comfortable. Decorated with traditional Cape Cod décor, the cottage offers water views from almost every window. Swan Pond cottage is a year round cottage that is a to rent in the off season. So, if you are looking to get away and see the lake in the Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring - consider the beautiful views that are offered year round. Every season on the Cape is unique, especially on Swan pond.
What a wonderful cottage for our family Cape Cod vacation! Just to mention a few features, there are three charming bedrooms, clean bathroom and a great outdoor shower. Very comfortable living room with a large TV and lots of books. The dining area has spectacular views of the water. We spent many nights and morning eating on the outdoor deck. The private back yard has lovely views. Our family enjoyed the grassy backyard area for badminton, volleyball and croquet. The kitchen has many trays, bowls, glasses, and silverware that you could possibly need, and so many other supplies that all you will need to bring is your food and drinks! The kids also enjoyed the use of the kayaks, canoe and being on the lake. The neighborhood is great for walking, biking and jogging. Martha’s Vineyard ferry is just a hop away. I think you would be hard pressed to find a more peaceful, comfortable and beautiful place to stay anywhere on Cape Cod! Thank you John and Laura for a memorable vacation.
This was a perfect getway for our family. The single floor layout was great for my mother (in wheelchair). My two boys 2 and 4) loved the bunk beds, and it was great to have the additional third bed in their room for when the novelty of the top bunk wore off. My wife and I were in the third room. Plenty of space for all, on a quiet road, a beautiful lake, and direct kayak and canoe access out onto the water. Could not have asked for more.
First of all a big Thanks to John, who always responded without delay, making us feel very comfortable, which was important for us as we live in Europe. The House was exactly as described. Very clean, very comfortable.we enjoyed our stay very much and would definately rent this house again if the distance from Europe would not be that far. it is diffycult to say who to recommend this for - we were 5 people - our 3 girls age 22, 18,15 - they all enjoyed the getaway - i would recommend it for every one that wants to relax, do some sightsseeing, etc, a car is recommended - everything, beach, Supermarket is very close, but not necassarily walking distance.
The cottage was just as described. Owner was great to work with and quick to respond to our questions. With it's central cape location, it was a great place to stay. About an hour to Provincetown, for whale watching and to Woods Hole to take the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Also great for just relaxing on the hammock in the back yard (perfect for two) or you can kayak, canoe, or float in a raft on Swan Pond. We loved going out to the islands and walking around. We saw some heron on the island and my daughter found some little horseshoe crabs. So glad we went with this rental! Be sure to check out Fritz Glass. He makes amazing marbles and spent over an hour showing us how he makes them. Best part..it's right around the corner from the cottage.
My wife and I recently rented this cottage for our wedding. We choose this cottage out of all others due to the view of the pond. We had our ceremony in the middle of the trees where the hammock is. The cottage is warm and inviting. The decoration and warm feeling makes you feel like your home. We had 25 guests. The property is big enough to accommodate that many people. The cottage was perfect for our small intimate wedding with our closest friends and family. I would recommend this cottage for anyone wishing to have a wedding or small family get together. The location was easy to get to. It is in a good area to shops and main roads. The landlords of this cottage are easy and friendly to talk with. We also took a canoe ride on the pond. Which is absolutely amazing.
This cottage is the perfect getaway! It is located on a quiet road not far from Sea Side Beach. We walked or biked around the block every night and loved being able to walk to the nearby restaurants The view is magnificent and we spent many hours outside on the hammock or deck relaxing. The backyard is large and well cared for: perfect for the kids to play in while I enjoyed the serenity of the water view. We hope to enjoy many more vacations at this house.
The Cape Cod Rail Trail is only 2 miles from the cottage. Enjoy a scenic bike ride through cranberry bogs, lakes, ponds, woods and classic Cape Cod towns. Stop off in Harwich or Chatham (6-12 miles) for lunch or for experienced riders - feel free to visit Provincetown 40 miles away
