    Lovely Property

    We had the opportunity to stay at Beach Lodge for a week this summer. The property was lovely. It is extremely well cared for, an amazing location and includes all the amenities. It is close to the beach and within walking distance to town. There is room for everyone. (It can house close to 15!) The yard, screened in side porch and open front porch are great places to relax, share a meal and watch the world go by. I highly recommend considering a stay here with friends and family. I am sure everyone will be pleased and have a memorable stay. show more show less

    Beautiful Cape Cod experience!

    Beach Lodge is everything you want for your Cape Cod experience - lovely waterfront view, historic house, and beach only a short walk away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. It's so big with many places to relax and enjoy -- especially the screened-in porch! The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking some great meals to share with our friends. And our room was so so beautiful!! Lots of shops and restaurants close by too.

    Beach Lodge, simply wonderful 5-star waterfront vacation home!

    Beach Lodge is the quintessential Cape Cod turn-of-the-century home which directly overlooks Harwichport Harbor. Lovingly restored and beautifully furnished, it is the perfect relaxing family getaway! Very comfortable ambiance which immediately charms with its expansive harbor views. All bedrooms are airy, soothing retreats with either water or lovely garden views. There are many gathering spaces in the home, with a modern, efficient kitchen and large adjoining dining room, two separate family rooms, an open-windowed living room off the front porch and an adjacent study. The large wrap-around porch has a screened-in sitting room as well as a comfortable seating in the open-air porch.

    Meals at the large outdoor table are enjoyed watching the osprey nesting in the harbor while the sailboats float by. Outdoor grilling of fresh seafood from the local markets are a must! The grounds are beautifully landscaped, providing private screening from the drive below. An outdoor shower is so convenient since the beachfront is just a short 2-block walk from the home.

    We enjoyed everything about Beach Lodge. . . it was absolutely lovely, with so many thoughtful amenities provided by the owners. Writing this review vividly reminds me of the easy-living we enjoyed all week with our family and friends together. . . early morning sailing, swimming, kayaking or nearby biking. . . lazy afternoon idylls with our summer reads. . . catching a beer and fresh oysters for happy hour. . .toasting the sunset. . . and, oh yes, the lobster! Delightful in every way!!

    Beach Lodge Harwich Port - Harborfront Grandeur

    My family enjoyed a wonderful week in Harwich Port, and this property is so memorable. The location is simply stunning, with endless things to look at on the harbor. We even saw a few seals swimming by the dock.

    The home and grounds are also lovely, with each room being decorated in the true Cape style. Lots of antiques and period pieces, while plenty of modern-day conveniences to make sure we were comfortable (the young people in our party loved accessing the Wi-Fi from the screened porch, front deck or lounging in the lawn). We are a family that loves to cook, so we took full advantage of the well-appointed kitchen and the large Weber gas grill (I think we used it every night!).

    We were also fortunate enough to experience peak-bloom for the deep purple and blue hydrangeas which wrap the front porch. My mother in law also admired the many rose bushes in the front yard, which were full of flowers.

    The sandy swimming beach is a close walk away, as is a wonderful ice cream shop and a strip of shops, restaurants and galleries along main street. The location really can't be beat. If you are looking for location, a wonderful harbor view, and a large home full of Cape Cod character, this is it. We can't wait to be back for our next family reunion.

    Gem of a house

    This neat and tidy home is one of the best preserved homes on the Cape. Its large size is perfect for a family gathering and the spacious rooms give a feeling of openness and warmth. Whether enjoying breakfast or barbecue dinner on on the screened porch or outdoors (either provides a view of the harbor), this home is hard to match for ambiance and pleasure. Its location is quiet and tranquil. Being so close to the beach, only a quick walk, is such a delight. The proximity to the town within walking distance is a real plus. We were delighted to have the opportunity to stay here. show more show less

    Spectacul-aire!

    This was such a lovely place! All the bedrooms were lovely and beautifully decorated, the bathrooms as well. We also loved all the sitting areas--so many lovely options to choose from. The porch overlooking the harbor was our favorite. But, in my opinion as a home cook, the kitchen was the "pièce de résistance" since it was capacious, and beautifully equipped: there are even sharp knives!! Another huge plus was the outdoor shower--it seems there was always a line for its use!! A real treat!! show more show less

    Our family enjoyed a wonderful family vacation at Beach Lodge. This spacious home was perfect for our large multi-generational group. We took advantage of the large indoor and outdoor dining areas, living areas and yard. The views of Wychmere Harbor and Nantucket Sound from this home are spectacular. The beach is just a 5 minute walk and Harwich Port has many wonderful restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops and great shopping. We look forward to returning to Beach Lodge soon for another memorable family gathering. show more show less
