About Christine & Jeff Dennis

We are happily married with 2 grown children. We met here on Cape Cod and are lucky enough to now live here too.

Christine & Jeff Dennis purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Christine & Jeff Dennis chose Sandwich

We both spent summers here as children and have grown to love this place more and more each year. We were thrilled when we were able to buy a home in this area. Especially one with a water view and so close to the beach!! We purchased this home in 2010 and spent the first year completely updating it. In 2015 we renovated again with a new slider and windows to the front wall. We hope you'll enjoy our home as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the location of our vacation home. It is a very short walk to the beach. The pond is spring fed and perfect for a nice cool dip on a hot day. We love that we can enjoy our new deck and a view of the water at the same time. When we are here, it feels like a different world. It's a quiet & relaxing escape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of staying in this cottage for a week last August. It was our first time renting a vacation property and we were a little nervous on what we'd find. Well, as soon as we pulled into the driveway, and walked into the home, we knew we had found the perfect place. The owners popped over to say, "Hi!" our first evening there, and they were never bothered by our questions. And the neighbors could not have been any nicer. Everyone was so friendly. The charm, tranquility and location is understated. It is tucked away from the bustle of tourism, yet conveniently located just minutes from the beach. And, with traffic, you are only about 20+ minutes from either Woods Hole or Hyannis. It was so nice to travel the Cape and know we were coming back to the cottage with all the conveniences of home. We were truly able to unwind and reconnect as a family on this trip. We find our experience to be one of the most relaxing and most enjoyable vacations ever, and it all started here.

Modern Cottage w Lake View and Private Beach, Friday-Friday Weeks!!
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews

The cottage was so adorable, clean & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked in we felt comfortable. Everything you would need was there and it was very clean and organized. The owners even made up a notebook filled with local church's, stores, restaurants, places to see. They had fresh flowers on the table and classical music playing quietly in the background. You knew right away that you were in for a wonderful vacation making lifetime memories. We are home now, but we still miss our little cottage by the lake. Hopefully next year we can do it all again!

Very Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year of vacationing at this summer home and we love it here! The house is very comfortable and well kept, and the community has wonderful atmosphere. I choose to rent this home again because it is very kid friendly (2yr old and 11yr old) and it is centrally located. The location really allowed us to find everything/anything we needed so easily.

A Peaceful, Quaint, Relaxing, Memorable Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several vacation rentals and I have to say, this by far, was the most memorable! Our hosts, Chris and Jeff went above and beyond any expectations and took good care of us! They were lovely to deal with. I am very picky, and was coming all the way from California with my 2 kids, and I was nervous about booking a rental sight unseen. The minute we drove down the private road to get to the cottage, I knew we had made the right decision! Upon entering the home, it was so inviting, comfortable, cozy and CLEAN! We only wish we lived closer so that we could visit this place again and again! My children and I went kayaking for the first time, and it's something I will never forget! My son still talks about it. He said it is the most peaceful thing he has ever done. The private association beach was steps away and every time we would go out and sight see, the minute we came back to the cottage, we immediately made our way down to the pond every day and it instantly made us feel relaxed and we were able to unwind. No crowds!!!! That was the best part!!! The pond is breathtaking! The water so calm and lovely to look at. There is a protected swim area for little kids which is nice. We cooked our meals in the beautiful kitchen daily. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. Everything about this place was perfect for us. Grandma came and stayed with us and she slept nicely on the pull out sofa. The cottage is very spacious and we loved that we all had our own space if we wanted it. We will NEVER forgot our memories made here, thanks to Chris & Jeff for sharing their lovely place with us!!! Thank you so much, Michelle, Bryce and Amanda :)

Great cottage in a quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending the week at this great little house. It was exactly as described and very clean. It felt just like our home away from home and it gave us the opportunity to really relax on the trip. We loved having the pond at our disposal and used it frequently. The neighborhood was quiet but we were close to everything we needed- big beaches, stores, restaurants, etc. We even took a day trip to Plymouth, which was only 30 minutes from the house. The owners were so easy to work with. We'd highly recommend!
