Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an incredible week in Cape Cod, the house was stunning, spacious, great for kids (of all ages) and walking distance to a beautiful private beach. The heated pool was a favorite for our young kids and the separate cottage was perfect as an in law unit-providing a spacious, yet intimate and private stay for the grandparents. Our family and friends had a wonderful stay, it will be a week we will always remember.

A wonderful 4 weeks at fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a month at Bleak House, a perfect base for our Cape Cod vacation. Situated in an ideal location, we could easily walk to the beach and along the shore, and drive to many nearby towns. We loved walking along the shore to the gourmet snack shack at Corporation Beach. Other times we explored towns and restaurants by car. We always felt happy coming back “home”, where we could spend hours gazing at the view, watching the amazing sunsets, and even catching close-up views of many firework displays. Each room was more than comfortable, with clean well-maintained facilities, ample towels and fine linens. As we spread out through the house, everyone made great use of the several special rooms: the gorgeous library with table top chess-board, the downstairs gym, the chef’s kitchen, or one of the many “reading nooks”. The swimming pool was clean and clear and just the right temperature. The logistics of renting and using Bleak House were clear and simple. Lori responded quickly to our emails, provided a “manual” with household and travel tips, and the cleaner and pool service man were easy to reach and quite accommodating. Overall, Bleak House was a stellar vacation home, a wonderful place for quiet reflection and lively company. We hope to rent here again!

A wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

This was just a perfect place for a multi-generation family get-together. The house had all the comforts of home along with a gorgeous setting overlooking the beach and with a lovely pool. Twelve of us were completely comfortable.

With a beach and a pool, as well as easy shopping nearby, we found this house to be in a wonderful location. The town of Dennis nearby is charming and not commercialized.

The house was exactly as described in the listing. It was wonderfully maintained and we would recommend this house to our friends.

The perfect Cape Cod summer rental!

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for more in a home than this beautiful property in Dennis. We stayed for a month and were thrilled to find that the house had everything we were looking for. Gourmet kitchen, gym, huge master bedroom, guest house, views of the ocean from the first and second floors, lots of great living spaces for our large family and guests to hang out in, a lovely pool in the back, a large lawn in the front and only 5 mins to a private beach. The owners have thought of everything and are very easy to work with. We will be repeat customers!

Fantastic Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this home for the past 2 summers. It is a beautiful high-end home that also has that warm beachy feel. You can wake up and look at the ocean every morning and go to bed with spectacular sunsets. The beach is a 1 minute walk for those days you don't want to hang out by the great pool. The area is private, but close to everything. You will not want to leave!

This oceanview home with heated pool is located in a private seaside community on the Cape Cod Bay in Dennis. It is steps to a private association beach on Cape Cod Bay, one of the few places you can see the sun rise and set on Cape Cod. This area beach has a huge tide leaving you with tidepoools and vast areas of beach during low tide, and still plenty of beach at high tide. Walk one mile to the Cape Cod Theatre and Playhouse, Cape Cod Cinema, Harvest Gallery Wine Bar, Dennis Village for band concerts, Smugglers Ice cream, Nancy's Candy Shop and several restaurants including Fin's, Scargo Cafe, Summer Stalk and Chat House. Also set in Dennis Village one mile away you will find art and antique galleris and small local gift shops. Close to Northside Marina where you can cruise on the Cape Cod Bay and enjoy a Lobster roll and cocktails on the vessel the Lobster Roll or enjoy lunch or dinner at JC's outsides dinning ( don't let the picnic tables fool you...the food is great) and watch the boats go by. Some of the best Sushi around can be found at Inaho Restaurant just 5 miles. Eden Jewelry known for the famous Cape Cod bracelet is a half mile from the property as well as the fresh water private beach on Scargo lake where you can bring your kayak or sun fish. Being in Dennis allows you access to the ocean side beaches of Debnisport as well, only 9 miles away. Twenty minutes to the Retrix airport accepting private planes and well as Barnstable Airport. Forty five minutes to Provincetown and 1.25 hours to Boston.
