Description

Description

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in this comfortable, clean ranch-style home with central air. Have morning coffee, plan your day in the sun room or patio. The sun room has comfy wicker furniture; patio has an outdoor dining table, chairs, umbrella. The large, private backyard has several Adirondack chairs where guests can relax after a busy day, enjoy fresh evening breezes and view of pine trees and sky.

Scenic and protected Bayside beaches (Mayflower and Corporation)are close by, as are Nantucket Sound beaches (West Dennis Beach). After a day of sand/sun, enjoy a refreshing outdoor shower in the backyard. The hot-cold shower is fully enclosed. Hang towels and bathing suits on the clothesline. Grill a great meal with your choice of the new Weber gas grill (propane included) or Weber charcoal grill. A lobster pot is available to cook the Cape's own lobsters.

Our rental weeks in June, end of August and September are reduced in price to accommodate smaller parties of two, three, or four. These weeks are great as the Cape is less busy and weather is still warm.

This year-round home is in a pleasant wooded neighborhood away from traffic, great for safe walking/biking. Close-by is a grocery store, gourmet food stops, nice restaurants. If you plan to prepare meals at home, the kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, utensils, BBQ tools.

WiFi is available or you can use your Air Card, Hot Spot, Jet Pack. We have excellent reception.

The house is suited for families with children, one or two couples, multi-generational family get-togethers; a group of friends. Weekly rates for all seasons are reasonable; rates for September are lower and a bargain for those who want a relaxing week in pleasant surroundings ''away from it all'', without the crowd.

The house is professionally cleaned before guests arrive - cleaning fee is included in the rental fee. There are no processing fees.

With its convenient layout, guests can comfortably share the house. Master bedroom has a queen bed; bedroom next to master has two twins, the third bedroom on the opposite side of the house has a double bed and twin.

Two shopping centers are close by on Rte 134, one with a large grocery store (Stop N'Shop). The other has several gourmet shops, a D'Angelo's (for a quick lobster sandwich), Dunkin Donuts. If you need a few basic necessities, there's a small store about five minutes away.

If you enjoy walking or biking, the paved Cape Cod Rail Trail is a quarter mile away, as are local trails in Dennis, Harwich, Nickerson State Park. Bring bikes or rent at Barbara's Bike Shop near the Rte 134 Trail entrance. You can walk/bike the entire Trail to its end at Wellfleet (25-26 miles) or stop along the way. Pleasant Lake Store (at 5.9 miles) is a good place for lunch, drinks, snacks. The Trail passes local points of interest, several lakes for swimming and picnics.

Spend a day checking out historic lighthouses in Cape towns -- Highland Light in North Truro; Nauset Light, Eastham; Chatham Light. Two golf courses are ten minutes away, so if Dad (or Mom!) wants to golf for a few hours, there's a wealth of other things that Mom (or Dad!) can do: visit historic sites and museums, shop, spend time antiquing on nearby Rtes 6A and 28, browse the local weekend flea market.

You can take a river cruise or kayak on nearby Bass River, or quickly get on Rte 6 for shopping or dining in Provincetown and touring the National Seashore. Spend the day in Dennis enjoying sun, sand, water at the best beaches on Cape Cod Bay (Mayflower, Corporation) or on Nantucket Sound (West Dennis). Dennis has about twelve Bayside/Sound beaches with public parking. During summer season, vehicle stickers for a week's parking can be purchased at Dennis's town office.

You can catch the sunset on Dennis's beautiful Bayside beaches, have a late afternoon beach picnic, enjoy a relaxing day or evening on the patio in our private backyard. For a change of pace, attend a performance at historic Cape Cod Playhouse on nearby King's Highway, where there is also a children's theater.

The Cape is great in summer, but June and September are very nice -- it's less crowded and accommodations are a better value. Days and nights are warm. You can enjoy the scenic aspects of beaches or even swim; walk or bike nature trails; spend time sightseeing and shopping. Most attractions and shops are open in June and September/early October. Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard operate year-round. You can spend a relaxing evening in front of the fireplace for a cozy evening. The house is a year-round home and has an excellent heating system. At any season, the house is well maintained and comfortable.

Appliances are those you'd have at your own home: washer/dryer, dishwasher, gas range/oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, toaster oven. There's a 32-inch Sony HD-TV with satellite/DirecTV and DVD player in the living room. The TV package includes major baseball games. There's a Weber gas grill (propane is supplied) and charcoal grill. Beach chairs and a cooler are available to take to the beach.

There's an ample supply of pillows, blankets, bedspreads, mattress pads for every bed. Mattresses are comfortable; most are new.

Bed linens are available for your use, or bring your own. Bath/beach towels are not supplied; but can be made available for a nominal fee. We supply kitchen towels, oven mitts, dishwasher soap. We have an FM-AM radio with CD player, selection of CDs and DVDs suitable for different ages, playing cards for kids/adults, Monopoly game, several outdoor games children can play in the backyard.

A blue information binder is available on nearby attractions, directions to Dennis beaches, restaurant suggestions.

Reviews in this listing are from our house Guest Book written by guests over the past 10 years.

This house was featured on NECN's TV program in March 2012 as a great value in Cape Cod vacation rentals. The Town of Dennis is picturesque and historic and judged one of ''the best American towns''.

At this house and in Dennis, you'll enjoy the best of ''Old Cape Cod'' as well as the new Cape Cod and leave with great memories!

Our family had a brilliant first time in Cape Cod. The weather was a bit unpredictable for the first few days, then brightened up for the last few days. We found that West Dennis Beach was easily accessible and open compared to Corporation beach, and also had good facilities, showers and restrooms. Spanky's restaurant on the Hyannis harborside has delicious seafood. Harbourside Mini Golf in Brewster has great surroundings (leaflet in blue folder). We found the house very comfortable during the hot weather. Also great location near super market and main road. Garden was great for playing in and BBQs in the evening. Would love to come visit again. show more show less

Our family enjoyed a memorable week at the Cape. The location of your wonderful home was perfect and was neat, clean, cozy and well organized. We really appreciated all of the conveniences much like our own home. In particular, we really enjoyed relaxing in the serene backyard and the kids loved riding their bikes in the neighborhood. We also enjoyed the local beaches - with Mayflower being our favorite. Because of the proximity of your home we were easily able to take in a couple of baseball games, and shopping in Dennis, Chatham, Brewster, and Orleans was fun as well as day trips to Provincetown and Hyannis. We all enjoyed the Bass River cruise as well as the trampolines and go-carts of Harwich ! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home ! show more show less
