Check in 3pm Check out 10am
Signed contract with $500 security deposit required to book this cottage. Must be 25 and over
A hidden gem! This beautiful, quintessential Cape cottage is steps to Swan Pond River and just 9/10 mile to South Village Beach. Wake up to the sun rising over the river. Kayakers, fishermen and crabbers welcome!

Tucked away on a private way, the cottage is set in a very desirable, quiet and convenient location. We are one house back from the Swan Pond River. A very tranquil and serene setting. There is guest access to the river at the end of the street appox. 80 steps. Swan Pond River views are visible from almost every area on this property.
This perfect cottage has been completely updated within the last year. It sleeps 4 very comfortably The kitchen boasts brand new appliances and granite counter tops. The gas stove is a dream to cook on complete with a griddle for pancakes or grilled cheese. The kitchen is bright and sunny with lots of windows. Everything you need to make and serve a great meal can be found in this kitchen. The full bath has a shower and tub-all new fixtures throughout. The living area is meant to be used, and we made it comfy so that you feel at home in our home. The queen bedroom has water views from both windows, and the stars and stripes bunk room has water views as well. ***Linens are not included*** in the rental fee unless previously arranged with owner but can be reserved at the guest's cost with Auntie Vi's at auntievis.com or call 877-263-8899. Free delivery if you place your order 7 days prior to arriving. We recommend placing linen order when you book your trip.
Enjoy the new deck with water views and custom lighting while grilling your catch of the day. Or fire up the pit to roast marshmallows with the kids after a fun day at the beach. There's nothing better than grabbing a cold beer and feeling the breeze and seeing the blue sky while washing off the day's fun in the outdoor shower! Make sure to take time to enjoy a nightcap by the fire after the kids are tucked in for the night. We have made the outdoor living as comfortable as the inside.
This little gem is very central to Rt. 134 and Rt. 28. A very short ride to many restaurants, shopping, numerous beaches and attractions! A quick 5-minute walk to DD's for morning coffee or to Tedeschi's to grab the morning paper. There is off street parking for 2 cars. Although this property is listed with the town as a condo it is a stand alone cottage and it does NOT share any common spaces, yards, driveway or walls with the cottage located at the front of this property. Backyard and deck is not shared with other guests.
Fishermen: Stripers have been caught in the Swan Pond River as well as blue claw crabs on incoming and outgoing tides. Grab your poles and nets!
My family has been vacationing on the Cape for over 30 years. We can guide you to many attractions, shopping, beaches, and restaurants, too. We are always available by cell phone, text or email for any questions or concerns you have during your getaway. Do not hesitate to call. We are foodies and love to recommend places to try.
Guests will be required to sign and return a rental agreement along with half the rental fee to hold their reservation. A $500 security deposit is required for this rental. And $100 cleaning fee.
South Village within a mile. West Dennis about 2 miles. Both with visitors parking! West Dennis beach offers snack bar, rest rooms, playground with swings and a kite flying area to catch the ocean breezes. You can obtain a visitor pass for beach parking at the Dennis Town Hall for a discount if you purchase a weekly pass. They do not accept credit cards.

Restaurants are plenty and many are family friendly. Try our favorite Haunts-The Ocean house and don't forget the beach bar next door- right on the ocean. Great sushi here! Who knew? A casual place to stop for a drink and listen to live music is the Sand Bar on the way to West Dennis beach. Relax on the marsh side deck with beautiful views and wildlife. Also enjoy the best Pain Killers you'll find on Cape along with spectacular sunsets! Raw bar on the weekends too! The Oyster Company has never disappointed. Fresh well prepared seafood and creative dishes. Small bar area so arrive early if you enjoy sitting at the bar! Chatham's Red Nun's newest sister has opened on Main Street with a large bar and many TV's to catch a Red Sox game. Great weekly specials, too.
There's plenty for the kids to do: Take short a ride to the playground and walking paths which lead to the beach at Sea View Park in Dennis Port. Mini golf and ice cream parlors are plentiful along the roads of the Cape. The Cape Cod Children's Museum and Museum of Natural history are great places to visit on a rainy day. They offer lots of hands on activities to keep the little ones engaged. Or take in a movie at the local theater in the Patriot Plaza.

House Rules:
Renters must be over 25 years old. Please there is no smoking allowed in the cottage. Ashtrays and ash cans have been provided outside for your smoking pleasure and cigarette disposal. Please be sure all butts are completely extinguished when going in for the night.

The fireplace in the cottage is not a working fireplace-it is for decorative purposes only. Please refrain from building a fire or placing lit candles inside. This can cause a fire and is hazardous as the flue and chimney have been block off.

Please do not burn anything in the fire pit-no wood, braches, brush, no trash, cans, papers or plastics etc...

Make sure the outdoor gas fire pit and the grill's propane tanks are turned to the off position when not in use.
A town noise ordinance is always in place please no loud music or noise after 10pm.

Due to my families severe pet allergies furry family members are not allowed (cats/dogs).

We have the right to cancel a guest's reservation if any illegal, untoward, or destructive behavior is evident before or during your stay. Leaving the cottage in the same condition that you found it will prevent an extra cleaning fee from being deducted from your security deposit. Rental contract will be sent to guest prior to stay. Please be considerate of our friendly neighbors.

What an amazing week for me and my kids. Felicia and Jim were stellar hosts. The cottage was immaculate and so well decorated. All the special touches made it feel just like a home away from home. Felicia was also very responsive to emails, texts etc.. We look forward to booking again next summer.

My parents and I stayed at the Lemon Drop Cottage for our first visit to the Cape. It was perfectly centrally located for day trips to the various sightseeing destinations we had in mind for our vacation, as well as some lovely beaches. We also really enjoyed the large outdoor patio for snacks and drinks in the evening. The house was very comfortable and it felt like we were the only ones around. We would definitely stay here again!

We really loved staying at the cottage. The description and photos don't do it justice. There was plenty of room for the four of us and we really enjoyed the outdoor space. We made good use of the chairs, floats, etc on the beaches. West Dennis is handy for getting to most places on the Cape - we hired bikes from Brewster, kayaks from just up the road and watched whales from Provincetown. Nearby shops and places to eat were handy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here.

The hosts did a great job leading up to and during our stay to make sure that we had a great experience. The cottage was perfectly appointed with everything that we would need to have a comfortable time. The outdoor space was incredible and spacious, and the interior was clean and quaint. We would definitely stay there again.

What an amazing vacation stay! Jim & Felicia go out of their way to make you welcome. The cottage was exactly as described - very warm and welcoming. Too many amenities to describe. If we were ever to go back to the Cape, this will be our place to stay. Thank you!!!

Felicia's cottage is the perfect example why I choose AirBnB over hotels. It was such a wonderful experience. The cottage is so beautiful and the attention to detail is excellent. I felt right at home! Great location, super clean and Felicia is a top notch host. I would recommend anyone to stay with her

It was a perfect getaway cottage for my husband and I. Cozy, well decorated and clean. Outdoor space was amazing! It would be a nice space for a family of 4. The kitchen had every utensil needed to make a lobster dinner. There's a great fried seafood restaurant very close and a fresh fish market as well. The cottage is attached to another home with a breezeway inbetween but backyard was private. The only complaint I can come up with is that the neighbor decided to mow his lawn while we were outside enjoying the fabulous patio.

I honestly cannot speak highly enough of our time spent here. It is the perfect spot for relaxing and to explore all that Cape Cod has to offer. Location is ideal, with both beaches and shops conveniently located nearby. The newly renovated deck is spacious and the perfect spot to enjoy the view at the end of the day. The cottage itself is perfect, exactly how described and as seen in the photographs. It is cosy and yet fully equipped with all mod cons. Felicia and Jim are the perfect hosts. The house is spotlessly clean on arrival and there was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us including new toys and slippers for our 8 month old son. A lovely gesture. Felicia was extremely easy to deal with and contact and we had no issues throughout our booking or our stay. I can highly recommend this cottage and take this opportunity again to say thank you to Felicia and Jim for sharing it with us.

We have enjoyed vacationing on Cape Cod for many years. Our recent purchase of our charming cottage offers us a great opportunity to share our love of Cape Cod living with other travelers. We have made this home away from home comfortable, usable and quintessential Cape Cod. We hope your time on Cape will be like no other.


What is special about this property?
Fishermen- stripers have been caught in the Swan Pond River as well as blue claw crabs on incoming and outgoing tides. Grab your poles and nets! Enjoy the new deck with water views while grilling your catch of the day. Or fire up the pit to roast marshmallows and wienies with the kids after a fun day at the beach. Make sure to take time to enjoy a night cap by the fire after the kids are tucked in for the night. We have made the outdoor living as comfortable as the inside. Please enjoy the area while being respectful of our friendly neighbors next door.
There's nothing better than grabbing a cold beer and feeling the breeze and seeing the blue sky while washing off the day's fun in the outdoor shower! Two shower heads-a low one for the kids and a high one for adults.


What is special about your town?
Rent a kayak at Cape Waterways and take a serene trip down the river-enjoy the peaceful ride to white sand beaches and the open ocean. Gorgeous South Village and expansive West Dennis beaches are within a mile. Both with visitors parking! West Dennis beach offers snack bar, rest rooms, playground with swings and a kite flying area to catch the ocean breezes.

Restaurants are plenty and many are family friendly. Try our favorite Haunts-The Ocean house and don't forget the beach bar next door- right on the ocean. Great sushi here! Who knew? A casual place to stop for a drink and listen to live music is the Sand Bar on the way to West Dennis beach. Relax on the marsh side deck with beautiful views and wildlife. Also enjoy the best Pain Killers you'll find on Cape along with spectacular sunsets! Raw bar on the weekends too! The Oyster Company has never disappointed. Fresh well prepared seafood and creative dishes. Small bar area so arrive early if you enjoy sitting at the bar! Chatham's Red Nun's newest sister has opened on Main Street with a large bar and many TV's to catch a Red Sox game.

There's plenty to do with the kids too. Take a ride to the playground and walking paths which lead to the beach at Sea View Park in Dennis Port. Mini golf and ice cream parlors are plentiful along the roads of the Cape. The Cape Cod Children's Museum and Museum of Natural history are great places to visit on a rainy day. Or take in a movie at the theater in the Patriot Plaza.
