Description

LOCATION!! LOCATION!! LOCATION!! This delightful family cottage is located on Northern Ave. in Harwich Port, Cape Cod, MA on beautiful Nantucket Sound. It is an incredible location for a peaceful vacation. In a quiet and walkable neighborhood, the private sandy beach is just steps away with plenty to do for kids and adults. Going in the other direction, small stores, parks and downtown Harwich Port cafes and restaurants are a very short walk away. It is the perfect vacation spot for families with children of all ages or anyone looking for a quiet place in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. Pets welcomed.

It has a large screened front porch across the front filled with comfortable classic wicker furniture and a large back deck for summertime BBQs and outdoor dining. The living room stretches across the front of the house with a fireplace, cable HD TV, DVD and VCR. The country styled dining room, also with cable HD TV, has sliding glass doors to a sunny deck with a grill for cookouts. It overlooks a spacious, double lot, flat, private yard that extends to the lane in back and has an outdoor hot/cold shower. Plenty of room for croquet, family volleyball or softball games. There is a driveway the length of the house that leads to a garage and which provides plenty of parking for visitors.

The sunny kitchen is large with a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, gas stove and half bath. Upstairs are 4 comfortable corner bedrooms (one with a new Queen bed and three with 2 twins each)and a full bath. A gas heater will warm the cottage on chilly days.

Kids will have lots to do here - at the beach, at nearby shopping areas or in the neighborhood which is child-safe and family oriented. You can often find a neighborhood wiffleball game playing on nearby streets. There are many children in the area. You can easily walk to area stores and downtown Harwich Port. Food shopping is 1/2 mile away.

Internet access is provided, too, in case you need to check your emails or find out the hours of a local restaurant!

Nearby attractions: National Seashore Park and Beaches (large waves), Golf Courses including Cranberry Valley Golf Course in Harwich Port (public), Batting cages, Bike trail, skate park, Go-carts, Trampolines, Mini-golf, Movie cinemas, downtown Harwich Port shops, family restaurants, Cape Cod League Baseball games, library, area museums, kayaking, deep sea fishing, and ferries to the islands.

Cozy, charming Harwich Port Cottage!!

I have to admit that I spent many a summer in this cottage growing up and I am now 61. Terrific memories still linger from my vacations then and new ones now after this perfect week. All the comforts of home and everything you could possibly need. You can't find a more perfect location when walking down to the ocean or roaming/walking into town and enjoying all that Harwich Port has to offer. Great location to drive to Chatham, Woods Hole and of course P'town. The house has all the essentials for cooking and items needed down at the beach. My husband even took a couple of spins on the bike.

There were 5 of us there, two being elementary age grandsons and all had a terrific time. I took them to the go-cart course I rode on when I was their age, and we all rode around the track having a blast. The trampoline area is still there and was very full. There are some exceptional restaurants in Harwich Port for seafood and other genres of food. What is not to love about this cottage, town, Cape Cod. My husband said to me after the vacation, "I never knew Cape Cod was on my bucket list!" Enough said, come visit and enjoy. Thanks for a great week.

We are having a great week! The humidity disappeared yesterday and it looks like we will have perfect weather. We all love the updates to the cottage! New flooring and carpet are so nice. Someone in your family has been busy!
Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us. These annual weeks at the Cape are true "memory builders" for the grandchildren!

2016 Vacation

Many summer memories coming to this area of Harwichport. The cottage on Northern Ave. is a quintessential Cape Cod cottage--full of charm. The proximity to the beach was great. Loved the back deck as well as the screened front porch. Plenty of parking. A short walk to everything. Our week here was great and looking forward to future visits!

Classic Cape Cottage - Perfect Location

We had a great week in this Harwich Port cottage with our three young children (7, 5, and 2.) The house is only steps to a very nice private beach, which was never crowded. The neighborhood is quiet, family friendly, and the cottage has a very large backyard. The house is charming, very comfortable, and a pretty quick walk to Harwich shops. There are four bedrooms upstairs, each with 2 twin beds. Full bathroom upstairs, half bath downstairs, and an enclosed outdoor shower. Very comfortably furnished. Owners clearly make an effort to make guests comfortable. Would highly recommend, especially for families with kids that value proximity to the ocean and Harwich amenities. show more show less

The Porch

Living on the seacoast of Maine, I wanted my daughters to experience Cape Cod as I did as a child. I found this place on this website and we were thrilled. The location is unbelievable, so close to a private beach, a short walk to great restaurants and a quick bike ride to the Bike Trail. The house has all the modern amenities all the while with the cozy "Beach Cottage" charm. It was very clean and bright. Our favorite spot for meals was the front screened porch, sitting out there whether with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night was spectacular. We are in the midst of booking a trip back next year. show more show less

Amazing Beach Vacation

My family and I rented this property based on the description and pictures, and, it was extremely accurate and perfectly represented; however understated. We absolutely LOVED the close proximity to the beach and hearing the ocean from the bedroom windows. The sunny and bright front porch was a favorite for enjoying relaxing breakfasts while we planned our days, and the back deck was the spot for evening barbecues. The beautiful knotty pine interior gives a real vacation feel. There is an amazing amount of room in the living room, which was perfect for after dinner games, movies, and relaxing. We even had enough room for family to visit with the large dining room table. Their were plenty of dishes and glassware for our family and guests. The 4 spacious bedrooms upstairs had more than enough room and were spotless. It was so great to find such a warm, welcoming vacation home so close to the beach with a yard large enough for the kids to play frisbee. We also loved how close the bike paths were and, after a day on the paths, we really enjoyed watching the sun set from the beach. And, of course, the short walk to the ice cream stand after dinner was a family favorite! We had an amazing family vacation, and will definitely be back again! I'd highly recommend this vacation home and are so happy we found it! show more show less

Please tell your parents we enjoyed renting their cottage. It had everything we needed & the beach was perfect. Everything was neat & tidy when we arrived and I hope you found it the same when we left. We did have to leave the trash barrels out front as we left for CT on Friday afternoon to avoid the Saturday a.m. traffic.
If we decide to vacation at the Cape next year we will definitely contact you.
Thanks again for all the dining suggestions. We did order pizza from George's and had ice cream at both Sundae School and School House. Ate at Land Ho one night for dinner as that was a favorite of ours in Orleans 20 years ago!

I wanted to thank you for letting my family rent your house in Harwichport earlier this month. Its been a tough year for a few reasons and it was great to get everyone together in such a perfect location. We enjoyed many walks in town and late afternoons/evenings at the beach. Of course, the kids loved the go-karts and the (many) ice creams at the Sundae School.

If you ever think about putting your house on the market, please let me know. We are starting to realize we need a place in Harwichport to call our own and let our kids (and hopefully, their kids) grow up there during the summers.

We'll probably be back in touch for next year too!

Dear Peggy, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your lovely home in Cape Cod. Bayley (our dog) had lots of exercise and slept like a baby each night. THe treats were so thoughtful and he certainly looked forward to them. Your thoughtfulness and kindness were very much appreciated. We felt at home and hope to be able to do it again next year. Many thanks!

In 1959 my parents were driving around Harwich Port on a rainy day with three young children in the car. They spied this cute cottage for sale which was in a great location, had a large yard and was big enough for a growing family. They went in, spoke with the seller and we have been enjoying three seasons at the Cape ever since!

What is special about this property?
The front porch is just so peaceful and calming. Rocking in the wicker chairs while watching the world pass by is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon. The beach is just down the lane and provides a great place for swimming, walking, meeting others and relaxing.

What is special about your town?
Harwich Port is very centrally located and a good jumping off point for seeing the rest of the Cape towns. It has a wonderful Cranberry festival in the fall, is part of the Rail Trail and has other attractions such as race cars, trampolines and batting cages to keep the kids happy. Coupled with some wonderful restaurants (''Embers'' and ''Hot Stove'' among others), Harwich Port is a great place!
