Serenity on Bass River

Bedrooms 1
Space 500 sq. ft.
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

A Hidden Gem! Just off the highway and close to everything yet so quiet and serene on the banks of Bass River. Enjoy the beautiful sunset while sipping a cocktail overlooking the dock. Go out to one of Cape Cods amazing restaurants and then come home and sit by the campfire toasting marshmallows until you retire to your beautiful studio w Queen sized bed or sit and read by the gas operated wood stove or watch your favorite show on the 40" flat screen. Make yourself a snack in the full kitchen. In the morning after the coffee and danish included with your stay you can ride to the bike trail around the corner. Rent a bike and spend the day on the bike path all the way to Ptown or perhaps 5 min away you can be on the water with a Kayak rental or paddle board or next door to the marina and rent a boat for a day on Nantucket Sound. Too many restaurants to list or shop at one of Cape Cods Villages with local just minutes away. You can also spend a quiet day relaxing on the shores of the river just across the street, fish at the pier or just watch the boaters launch their boats. Theres so much to do here... please join us for your next vacation.

About Owner/Manager

Retired from the construction business and looking to stay active in the community, I have opened my home up to travelers as a way to share the beauty of Cape Cod for those who choose a more personal approach to travelling. I really enjoy meeting people.

I'm also a Wellness Advocate with doTERRA Essential Oils. I choose to use only natural plant based products in my home and on my body. My guests are treated to all natural plant based hair and body products. Samples can be provided for home remedies to health and wellness challenges

Owner/Manager purchased this studio in 1990

Why Owner/Manager chose Dennis

We had spent years adding onto the property and now I find it too big for myself but with so many wonderful memories I'm not ready to give it up just yet. With the extra income provided by travelers, I find i can bring help in to keep up the property in the manner its meant to be.

What makes this studio unique

Just 3 minutes off the highway, its so close to many things but so serene to just sit back from the world and just relax. After all....Cape Cod is all about relaxation. We are both baby and pet friendly. Playpens and highchairs on request.

Eyelash extensions are done on site. Very professional, convenient and reasonable rates. Please call or text in advance 508.776.0814.

Excellent accommodations and hosts. Space was clean, cozy, and private. Excellent value.

  • 5 of 5

Place was great. Property owner/ host was awesome//friendly and gave us great dining recommendations. Property is is beautiful. Right on river. Centrally located. Unit has kitchenette/ refrigerator which comes in handy for all the terrific food in the area. We rented bikes at a place that was close and reasonably priced and there was a good rail trail right behind. We brought our little dog and property owner was very accommodating and told us restaurants and places we could take our dog. We were there the weekend before 4th of July and we had a great time. Would stay again

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to explore all Cape Cod and South Dennis is in the perfect location to do this.

Chatham,Yarmouth, Hawich and the ports are all just a short drive away so an ideal place to stay for those wanting to explore.

Also right on the doorstep are cycling, kayaking and many other sporting activities.

The property has a small jetty leading down to the River, a perfect place to relax in the evening.

We also visited Martha's Vinevard and Provincetown highly recommended.

Our host Eileen looked after us really well and gave us lots of ideas on what to do and where to visit.

We loved our time in South Dennis.

Description is spot on. Our stay was truly serenity on the Bass River. Eileen and her daughter were wonderful hosts, our studio was immaculate and decorated beautifully. Plenty of privacy and the grounds were beautiful. Cannot wait to stay there again. We miss it already!!!

Property was absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable time at "Serenity on Bass River"! It really is all in the name....

The property was beautiful as well as the studio that we rented ~ and we can't say enough about the family!

Everyone was very nice and a pleasure to talk with over our long Labor Day weekend stay!

Our family dog, Katie, enjoyed herself too ~ Playing in the yard and with Eileen the host of the house as well as her family :)

We will definitely be back! Thank you again for a wonderful / peaceful / enjoyable vacation!!!

Located within a few minutes to great beaches, restaurants and hiking trails dog park too) this spot was ideal. We felt at home here. We were able to relax and enjoy our view of the Bass River and the large yard and gardens.
