Summer escape for the whole family including the pooch.

My family enjoyed the neighborhood jogs, fresh water ponds, nearby beach, and close to downtown Chatham

dining. Perfect for a relaxed Cape getaway. We'll be back!!

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!

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. The rooms were all a good size and the décor was nice. The owners seem to have thought of everything. Everything was clean and well maintained. The wonderful owners who were very accommodating. All you truly needed were your clothes, food, linens and towels. I was excited and impressed that everything was there. The location was also wonderful. The lake, ocean beach, stores, activities and restaurants were close by. I would recommend this property to friends and family. Hopefully I will return myself for another visit.
