Description

Description

Set way, way back from the road with fabulous views of the Swan River and the conservation land beyond.

The great room has floor to ceiling glass, and two decks overlook the river and wetlands. There are two large bedroom wings, designed as suites, with water views, providing ideal separation for two senior couples or two small families. Enjoy this birdwatchers' paradise, lively with geese, swans, herons, egrets, kingfishers, ducks, and more. Spend relaxing time in a hammock or adirondack chair enjoying the serenity and surrounding scenery.

This is the ideal spot to bring along your kayaks or use our canoe, and launch off the private dock right into the Swan River; paddle up a mile to Swan Pond, or down a mile to Nantucket Sound. Enjoy the large private yard, and use the provided cornhole game or horseshoes. You can also use our pickleball set at the many courts in Dennis. And what a pleasure to take your private outdoor shower on the big deck with views toward the river and wetlands!

On rainy days, enjoy the many available books, puzzles, and games. The large dining farm table is ideal for group meals. Other amenities of this delightful home include central air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet, TV, cable, washer, dryer and microwave. If you have to leave this wonderful spot, find ideal sea, sun, and sand at the famous West Dennis Beach, 2 miles away - where you'll also enjoy watching the many kite surfers.

    Beautiful Spot

    Swan Song is a beautiful place. There are amazing views of the Swan River from all parts of the house. It is such a peaceful spot. If you do want to explore, beaches, mini golf, museums, restaurants etc. are only minutes away.

    Excellent

    Swan Song is perfect! Sit for hours on the deck, or watch the river go by from inside on the rocking chair. Stunning views and abundant wildlife. Enjoyable outdoor shower watching the kayakers go by as well...Great location and easy access to rt. 134. Plenty of beds and space for 4 to 6. Will certainly return!

    Loved our stay!

    We had a wonderful week, it is a special place! The views of Swan River are incredible and the home is delightful - every detail has been attended to with care and you feel you are "on the Cape" both inside and out. It was hard to leave at the end of the week and we look forward to returning next year. Thank you!!

    Awesome Vacation

    Dick and Carol, Noelle and I had one of the best weeks at the Cape in years. Your place is beautiful. The location on Swan River is very private, even though are just a few hundred yards from route 28 and everything you need. The house was bright and clean and the Friday to Friday rental was perfect! We have stayed at many properties in West Dennis and Dennisport over the years and we would highly recommend your house. I especially loved the outdoor shower with a beautiful view of the river. Thanks for everything! show more show less

    Swan Song Serenity

    My family and I stayed here in June of 2023. We had been renting a smaller cottage for the last decade but sadly our family had outgrown it. This home is wonderful. The perfect size for my family of 5 and then some! I love that it's on swan River! So many birds to watch and they even provided binoculars, which I had forgotten! The location is central the home is perfect and cozy and stocked with whatever you might need! We can't wait to return to Swan Song next summer!

    Carol spent her childhood summers on Cape Cod and introduced Dick to the Cape in 1965, the year before we married. In fall 1990, Carol visited her parents in Harwichport from home in California, and bicycled down Baxter Street. She saw the six lots from this former cottage colony for sale, right on the Swan River, and by March persuaded Dick to come and consider the possibilities. Luckily the ''best lot'' was still available; we built ''Swan Song'' by moving two of the original cottages next to a new central ''great room'', positioning all for river views. On our small budget, affordability required renting through the summer weeks so we could come in the spring and fall. We have loved our second home, as have our kids, grandkids, and tenants. We switched to We Need A Vacation for the summer of 2023 based on the favorable experience of good friends (and fellow Davis Californians) with a waterfront home in Bourne.

    What is special about this property?
    Swan Song is special for us in so many ways, but for us its 10 greatest assets are:
    1. Serenity: the gorgeous view to conservation land across the river, without homes or other buildings in sight
    2. Light and Space: All rooms except the den face the river, and have large or many windows for light and views
    3. New and Old: The newer, large- window great room combines charmingly with the old cottage bedroom wings
    4. Bedroom Suites: Each cottage end combines two former bedrooms into one larger one; ideal for two couples
    5. Privacy: Way, way back from the road, with neighboring homes barely visible; a back deck shower with views!
    6. Location: Easy access from Rte 134, a fast mile south of Patriot Square, a mile and a half from a great beach
    7. The Dock: Delightful scenery paddling a mile up to Swan Pond or a mile down to sands of Nantucket Sound
    8. Convenience: a 5 minute walk to the 7-Eleven at 28/134; so many restaurants, shops, movies within 5 miles
    9. The Rail Trail: for cyclists, short rides to 3 access points, then safe, gorgeous peddling for miles east and west
    10. Big Yard: The river-facing decks, hammock and yard chairs are complemented by front yard game space.

    What is special about your town?
    South Dennis is a perfectly central location on the ''warmer'' side of the Cape, almost halfway between Hyannis and Chatham. We have very easy access to Route 6 for fast travel toward either Sagamore or Provincetown, and even easier access to Route 28, the old southern east/west route that passes through so many wonderful old Cape towns loaded with shops and conveniences. There are three relatively fast routes across to 6A, the more charming of the old east/west roads. Old South Dennis has many beautiful historic homes and is an easy walk or bike ride from Swan Song. Take a 5-minute walk to Kreme 'N Kone for the best fried seafood on the Cape! There are many nice hiking trails in Dennis and Harwich, some along lakes. There is great fishing close by too; in the Swan, Herring, and Bass rivers as well as in Nantucket Sound. Or go clamming in the Sound! The Dennis beaches are special, with kite-surfers often in play at the huge and renowned West Dennis Beach.
