Cute Cape in a family friendly community with freshwater pond access

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at the Cape. This home was perfect for our family of 5 and our dog. We enjoyed a week of kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding with our kids on Buck's Pond. The pond water was clean and warm, and the beach was perfect for our kids. We checked out the ocean beaches and came back to Buck's Pond because we loved the atmosphere. The home is close to many area attractions and a great food store is down the street. The owners, Gordon and Laurie, were very easy to get in touch with and provided all of the comforts of home.

We had an amazing vacation, and hope to return next year. Thank you for your hospitality Gordon and Laurie!

Great deals g friendly home in a lovely, quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The house worked well for our 3 children and dog. Central air was nice even though the weather was perfect 75- 80 and we didn't really need it.The spacious deck is a nice feature. The neighborhood was great, beautiful quite sandy beach with a clean pond for swimming and Kayaking just a short walk away.Good location. Harwich is a great town.

We had a wonderful time. Thanks Gordon and Laurie.

The name matches the experience Rest a Bit! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, (3) Children and dogs stayed at the property for a week. The location is wonderful! 5 minutes from Red River Beach. ($20 to park, but they have weekly passes too) The beach is clean, flat and mild waves. They have bathrooms that are CLEAN and there is a truck to buy snacks and drinks. Also they have life guards if you have little ones.

The house is also walking distance to a pond with a small beach. Also clean, and friendly!

We took day trips to the inflatable park, P town, bike trial, Hyannis, mini golf and shopping in Chatham. All just minutes away!

The yard is generous, the neighbors quiet, its a lovely community! The deck is wonderful, we used the grill and hammock every night. The interior was comfortable and adorable. I'm not sure the pictures do it justice. Beds are comfy, out door shower is heavenly, washer/dryer, central air...

Gordon was easy to work with and answered questions quickly! We would love to go back. HIGHLY recommend!!!!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our Cape Cod family vacation and our property was great. Bedrooms were a good size, nice decor, everything we needed was there. Location was perfect and kids started each day off with a swim in the lake located just around the corner! Home owners were amazing and everything ran like clock work. No one wanted our holiday to end! Thank you Gordon and Laurie for making our first trip to the Cape so wonderful!
