About the property

3BR, 1.5BA, Walk to Restaurants, Tennis, Bike Path, 5 min to Beach

Enjoy summer on the Cape Cod at Sea Rose Cottage, located in Historic Harwich Center, just minutes from the bike path and a 5 minute drive to Bank Street Beach.

Tucked away in a quiet, residential neighborhood, Sea Rose Cottage is steps from Historic Harwich Center where you can enjoy restaurants & shops, the library, bike path and Brooks Park, featuring a ball field, tennis courts, and a children's playground. Spend a balmy summer evening cheering on the Harwich Mariners at nearby Whitehouse Field, a 10-minute walk away.

This family-friendly, 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath cottage with central A/C, is one-level living with a fabulous Great Room- a sun-drenched living room and dining room surrounded by windows under a sky blue ceiling. Three steps up brings you to a newer renovated, European-style kitchen with granite countertops and slate floor. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, oven & glass-topped stove.

The cottage sleeps 7 in three bedrooms - Master w a queen bed, Bunk Room w a queen/twin bunk bed and a twin, and the Sun Room w a full daybed & trundle. All bedrooms have dressers and full-sized closets and/or armoires. A full bath with shower (no tub) is just off the kitchen and a new half bath is off the great room. There are two flat screen HDTVs- one in the great room (DVD player), and one in the living room which has a wood-burning fireplace. Cottage is WiFi accessible. Washer and dryer are located in a full basement accessible through a bulkhead. There is an outdoor shower, and a shed that stores beach accessories which you are welcome to use, including beach chairs, umbrella, cooler & 2 bikes.


Enjoy morning coffee in your Adirondack chair in a private fenced-in yard. Relax under the shade of a Japanese maple, gently swinging in a hammock that's big enough for two (or even three.) After a day at the beach, rinse off in your outdoor shower, followed by light snacks and drinks on the bluestone patio under a candle-lit teepee, then a grilled dinner on the house patio (both charcoal and propane grills available.) End the evening with a glass of wine or toasted marshmallows by the outdoor firepit.


Harwich and Harwich Port offer many beaches and activities all within a walk or short drive from the cottage.


Bank Street Beach- a favorite with families- is just a 5 min drive away! Visitors can purchase a town sticker to any of the many Harwich beaches on Nantucket Sound.


Several public golf courses are close by including the premier 18 hole Cranberry Valley Golf Course, less than a mile away, and the Harwich Port Golf Club- a 9 hole walking course, 1.5 miles away.


You are minutes from the bike path with access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Take the 19 mile scenic ride past cranberry bogs, ponds, and bays to Wellfleet, or opt for the shorter ride into downtown Chatham.

Miniature golf courses are on Rte 28 in nearby Yarmouth and Dennis.

The popular Sundae School Ice Cream is in Harwich, less than 2 miles away.

The cottage is well stocked with games, puzzles, DVDs & books.

Adorable and welcoming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely long weekend at the Sea Rose Cottage. It's close to all the things we wanted to see and do, very nicely laid out and perfectly decorated for a Cape Cottage. We would recommend this to couples or a family with young children. Look forward to going back!

Great vacation in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

August 2015

We visited Cape Cod for the first time and the Sea Rose cottage was a great choice for our stay. The cottage was clean, comfortable and close to the town and beach. The kitchen was modern and well stocked. The great room provided more than enough space to relax after a long day of sight seeing or beach fun. The beds were comfortable, sheets provided as well as bath towels , beach chairs and umbrella. What more could you ask for .

Thanks Janice ( and Dave)

Absolutely adorable cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Rose Cottage exceeded our expectations from the minute we arrived. It was spotless and decorated exactly as you would hope a Cape Cod beach house would look! The yard was private and the setting so inviting with the candles and firepit! Perfect location in the midcape to visit all the attractions and different beaches. Our family loved this house and would have been happy to never leave :) We would definitely return when we visit the cape next!
