We have been vacationing on The Cape for the last 5 years, and we love the Harwich/Brewster area. Our family consists of my husband & myself, my Mom (who is 80 years young) and our dog. Last summer, I went on a hunt for a new rental that was all on one level and would allow us to bring our dog. When I found this house, I knew it would be perfect for our family, and I am happy to say it was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be! Betsy & David have a lovely, comfortable home, and they have truly thought of everything you need to have - AND you can bring your dog!!!
This is a ranch style home with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a kitchen/dining area and a living room all on the first level. There are two deck areas, the deck from the sliders off the living room has a big glass-top table with an umbrella and 6 comfortable chairs. We ate almost every meal at this table. If you bring a (baby) gate, you can block off the front opening and the dog can hang outside with you on this deck. I think this was Guinness' favorite spot in the whole house. In the back, there is another deck with a comfortable couch and two chairs. Also in this space is a very cool propane "fire pit" - no need to start a fire, just turn it on - loved it!!! There is also a gas grill, which was perfectly clean when we went to use it! Oh, and I cannot leave out the brand new outside shower with hooks for your towels and a shelf. The beds in the bedrooms are super comfortable and the sheets are very high quality. Beds - one King, one Queen and two - Twins. There is a large table in the dining room with seating for 6 (perfect for a puzzle) and a sectional couch in the living room area. Having two bathrooms was so nice - my Mom had the one in the hallway all to herself and we had one right off the Master Bedroom. For the most part we used the outside shower. Now to the finished basement. To be honest, Mom and I did not use it but my husband loved it. Be aware the steps to the basement area are steep. So, in the basement you will find a TV, pool table, dart board and plenty of seating - the perfect spot for the kids to hang-out or watch TV. Finally there is a washer/dryer so you can go home with ALL clean clothes and beach towels!
Towels, sheets, soap, beach chairs - they are all there! The kitchen literally has EVERYTHING you need! The house is SUPER CLEAN!!!
We loved this house (it's a GEM) and have already re-booked for next summer!!!
