When we arrived, we noticed that this home was very clean, inviting, & full of lovely Cape Cod charm. The owners provide all the amenities listed & everything to make your stay more comfortable, safe, & carefree. Marsha got back to us right away if we needed assistance & was always very friendly & helpful.
The full bath (1st floor) has a ceiling heater (wonderful when exiting the shower!), a handheld shower head for thorough rinsing (just like at home & a "huge" plus), & full laundry which we found very convenient. The central air conditioning was a dream, I might add.
We really enjoyed having breakfasts on the patio, & the kids loved using the fire pit on cool nights for making s'mores & relaxing after a busy day at the shops, beach, or kayaking. The gas grill is hooked up to the house line, so no worries about a tank running out.
We had a mix of rain & nice weather so we got to do a little bit of everything during our stay. Our favorite eateries are Grumpies &, J.T.'s on 6A (love the quiet rear patio deck), & the fun Dog House (outdoor dining w/picnic tables & umbrellas; Lower County Rd) for casual, & Riverway Lobster House (for evening dining; Rt 28).
Stop & Shop (our go-to store at home) is very close by & across Rt 134 from there is a specialty food store called Ring Brothers where you can find fresh made sushi, wonderful baked goods, tons of delicious prepared meals, specialty items, wines, fresh made smoothies, fresh meats & seafood, veggies, & fruit, & anything your hearts desire for a picnic, or meal back at the house. We also purchased Cape Cod Creamery ice cream there & it was so yummy, only like 3 ingredients... real ice cream! Our kids enjoyed picking up breakfast (delicious but pricey & well worth the splurge) pastries at, Eat Cake 4 Breakfast in Brewster. Right next door is Stone L'Oven Pizza Company, a large eatery that uses delicious, all natural ingredients. Honey Dew donuts on Rt 28 has the best donuts, fast breakfast sandwiches & coffee around, & Tedeskis on 6A Brewster has a fantastic lobster roll (ready made on a buttered & toasted bun, no mayo nor fillers, just delicious lobster meat!) for only $9.99 that we like to take to the beach. Tedeskis also has other foods (ready-made, or prepared while you wait) plus all kinds of coffees, drinks, and last minute groceries.
We visited West Dennis beach after 5pm a few times (free parking at that time) & Brewster Bay beaches after 3pm which was also free parking & still plenty of sun at the bay, until dinnertime. Paines Creek sunset there, is just beautiful on a clear night. The Lemon Tree Shops near the bay on 6A has beautiful gift shops (kitchen, pottery, wood, etc) & a small eatery in front that has delicious breakfast & lunch foods w/a nice patio outside where families can sit, eat, & enjoy the sweet n' salty air. Down the road a bit is Our Lady of the Cape Church thrift shop & Luke's Spirit Shop which has a room where you can bring returnable beverage cans & bottles.
There are so many gift, thrift, ice cream, & candy shops, beaches, & eateries just along 6A alone as well as Route 28, that you needn't have to drive too far. The Christmas Tree Shops are fun to visit while there as well. We always search for coupons online & in those little Cape Cod booklets & newspapers to save $ here & there.
We also visited the Whydah Pirate Museum (they accepted their $1 off per person Provincetown Museum coupon) in W. Yarmouth which was quite interesting though pricey, & geared toward adults or older kids (Junior High on up) because it's a lot of reading at each display. My adorable 90 yr young Mom really enjoyed it too! :)
Pirate's Cove on 28 is a fun place for mini golf w/two separate lanes for separate visits. There is so much to do &
