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.

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!!!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I loved Serenity on the Bass River. So fun to be at a family's house instead of some huge hotel. The apartment is great, it is right on the water. Eileen is a great host, with lots of information about everything and just very warm. You have your privacy but you can interact with her family too. Feels very nice. Has full kitchen and everything so you can do cooking and such. I would totally stay here again!
