Description

Description

Our small beach cottage is located in the old campground section of Harwich Port, which was recognized by Coastal Living magazine as one of the best beach towns in the U.S. It is 100 steps from the beach and rents for $850/week during peak season.

The area is lined with several small cottages that are filled with couples and families all summer long. This is an authentic 100+ year old Cape cottage with some quirks and great character. What she lacks in curb appeal, she makes up for with a clean, charming, campy interior!

There is one main living area with a ceiling fan, one bedroom off that room with 2 twin beds, a small kitchen, one bedroom off that room with a day bed and trundle bed underneath, and a tiny bathroom off the 2nd bedroom. A water heater in the bathroom makes it a bit tight and the shower is small (my husband is 6'1 and just fits.)
There is no A/C or heat, but we do have a space heater, a ceiling fan, and portable fans...plus the ocean breeze.

The cottage is ''disconnected'' for now. We encourage you to reconnect here with one another, a great book, and/or by painting the beach and sky. Artists or those looking for peace and quiet will find it in our little cottage by the sea.

You can park two cars on the lot bumper to bumper. Bring your own linens, towels, beach necessities, etc. or we can arrange this service for you at an a la cart cost.

The beach is fairly calm (small waves) because Monomoy Island acts as a barrier island to the Harwich Port beaches, which makes it great for young children. It is also great for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, floating, fishing, and swimming.

Throughout the summer, artists share and sell their work weekly at Art in the Park right in town (a 5 minute walk from the cottage). Music in the Port also occurs weekly, typically on Wednesday evenings. Locals and visitors come out and enjoy the entertainment while popping into shops and dancing in the streets.

There is also a ferry (Freedom Cruise Line) close by that travels to Nantucket. This is one of the best kept secrets of ferry travel to Nantucket because there is free parking and no hassle lines.

Great stay with my 2 boys

We had a wonderful 2 week stay. My boys rode their bikes all over the neighborhood. They met tons of other kids and played on the beach for hours every day. They crabbed and fished off the jetty and we walked, scootered, and skateboarded everywhere. It's steps to the beach and there are tons of great restaurants just around the corner. Although the cottage is old, it is clean, and has everything you need. It's rustic but totally adequate. The no TV/no wifi enabled us to do puzzles, read, play cards, and mostly stay outside by the ocean our whole entire stay. Thanks for the great summer memories. show more show less

We have been vacationing on Ocean Ave for 20+ years. We loved the neighborhood, the beach community, the neighbors, and the location. Harwich Port is a darling little town with great shops and restaurants. We recently purchased the cottage and are thrilled to own a home by the water. It is a dream come true for us.

What is special about this property?
We just recently purchased this cottage and look forward to sharing it with renters. The cottage is about 120 years old and is one of the remaining original structures in the old campground. We plan to rebuild the cottage at some point, but in the meantime we have given her a face lift. While the cottage is tired looking on the outside, we just redid the inside by adding drywall where necessary, painting every room and floor, replacing the kitchen floor, cleaning from head to toe, adding a ceiling fan, etc. She is ready to go for a small family, couples, or friends that want to be close to the beach and love the quaint village of Harwichport. We also decided to leave the cottage ''unconnected'' from the world so you will not find a TV or internet available. Take a step back in time and enjoy a week or so of getting back to the basics with the beach, sand, sun, and one another.

What is special about your town?
Harwich Port is a small yet lively town with delightful shops and restaurants. It is an easy 7 minute walk from the cottage. Throughout the summer, artists share and sell their work weekly at Art in the Park. Music in the Port also occurs weekly, typically on Wednesday evenings. Locals and visitors come out and enjoy the entertainment while popping into shops and dancing in the streets.
There is also a ferry (Freedom Cruise Line) close by that travels to Nantucket. This is one of the best kept secrets of ferry travel to Nantucket because there is free parking and no hassle lines. Shhhhhh....
