Description

Description

For family looking to spend time together, our home is uniquely situated.

It is an antique with front & back staircases, 2 separate kitchen areas, each with a sink & refrigerator (one full size & one under counter), The kitchen has a Keurig, French Press & Espresso. 3 separate living areas for rainy days & evening TV watching. Front, side & back entrances, giving access to stairs, bathrooms & kitchen areas. Two outdoor grill areas & seating areas.

There are 4 bedrooms, shower bath & laundry on the second floor, with 2 bedrooms & flexible front living room with daybed/trundle and full bath on first floor, separately accessible for complete separation.
The first-floor queen bedroom has a brand new, adjustable base, for anyone needing this.

All linens and towels are provided for your convenience as always, however, you can feel free to bring your own. There is a house plan/bed layout for planning. We use organic lawn food, have filtered water & recycling. We encourage hanging up towels & provide alternative cleaning products (baking soda, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide as examples).

Just minutes from the house and all walk-able; there are miles of walking trails, conservation, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, numerous restaurants providing dine in or takeout, several beaches for walking, fishing, crabbing. Within 45 minutes in either direction, there is the National Seashore, numerous Parks, Recreational areas, boat charters and nature centers. Seafood store, specialty grocery, gourmet bakery & ice cream all walking distance down the street.

There is access to conservation land very close to the house, which is peaceful and beautiful.

Lovely six bedroom restored antique home great for family gatherings, and ideal for 2-3 families, with two staircases leading to separate bed/bath wings. Rambling home on beautifully landscaped level property with century old trees, climbing roses and hydrangeas. Two living rooms wide pine floors, three television areas with cable, brick patio, 12 x 28 enclosed sun room. House capacity is 14. House includes bed and bath linens.
Please note that our price includes cleaning and bed/bath linens in the weekly cost - many listings advertise one price and then have a $200-$500 cleaning/linens fee.
Another advantage to our home is bedding. We only provide Twin(s), Queen & King sized beds. Who wants to sleep with another adult in a double/full sized bed? Not sleeping because you are cramped or on a horrible bed/futon isn't fun for one night, forget about a week while on vacation.

Maximum car space is for 6 autos. 8/10 to Belmont Road Beach on Nantucket Sound, a nice family beach in West Harwich. The house accommodates every young children amenity. It is airy and bright with plenty of room to spread out. It has a large, flat yard that is ideal for children of all ages. Two Gas grills/BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating for summer entertaining. The living space is casual and comfortable. The home is fully equipped with everything one could want for a Cape Cod vacation. If you don't see it, simply ask!

This is a seasonal rental with heat downstairs. We have a ton of blankets so it's like camping some nights upstairs overnight in the early Spring or late Fall. We are closed Nov-March.

Harwich is located in the mid-Cape area of Cape Cod on Nantucket Sound with miles of ocean and freshwater beaches. The Cape Cod Rail Trail for bicycling runs through the town, and there are well over 600 acres of open space and conservation lands for walking, jogging and bird watching. Launch a kayak or boat down the street on the Herring River or explore Cape Cod’s largest fresh water pond, the 720 acre Long Pond. Miniature golf, trampolines and go-carts are just minutes away, as are restaurants, day spas, movie theaters, Cape Cod summer league baseball and great shopping. Wonderful public golf courses and tennis are close by. Harwich’s three gorgeous harbors beg to be photographed and provide easy ferry service to Nantucket and Seal Watches on beautiful Monomoy Island. Chatham's lighthouse, boutiques and fine dining are just 15 minutes down the road. A bit further out are Cape Cod National Seashore and lighthouses galore (Nauset, 3 Sisters, Truro). Provincetown's Pilgrim Monument, whale watches, shops, shows, art galleries and restaurants make for a wonderful day trip. Harwich is easily accessible from both Boston's Logan and Providence's TF Green Airports (80 miles).

    Great Place to Stay

    This was a wonderful place to stay in Cape Cod. Pretty neighborhood, close to everything in the area. Lots of common space and bedrooms were spacious. I've never seen a house with so many amenities! Everything you could possibly want- plenty of extra sheets/towels/blankets, big refrigerator, extra drink refrig, tons of kitchen tools and plenty of games for the little ones, even an sandbox with toys! We had 8 adults and 2 under the age of 3 and we had an extra bedroom. It was really great!

    Perfect for our family!

    This large farmhouse is well organized and super clean. The owners are very involved to make sure the rental is operating at its best and the communication/rental process was refreshingly very professional without being onerous.

    The property has a relaxed yard with mature trees that keep the area cool. The street is quiet even though very centrally located between West Harwich and Dennisport centers. We used Pleasant Road beach and it was an easy 2 minute drive and perfect for small children.

    The kitchen is very large with two sections allowing for good indoor/outdoor convenience with a Viking gas stove and extremely well kitted with tools and essentials. Many bedroom and bed options for multiple family configurations. The ground floor small bedroom worked well for our 80 year old mother although she would have preferred her own bathroom and not to share. :-) The toy room and the laundry room were big hits in regards to house usability. Highly recommend this rental property, thank you, thank you!

    Home away from Home

    The Seawillows was truly a wonderful vacation rental for our family in Cape Cod. After not being able to be all together for a couple of years due to the pandemic, a wedding brought us all together. My wife and I located the Seawillows and being 10 persons, 6 adults and 4 children, we could not have found anything better. Our eldest grandson came running to greet us and said, "They have a toy room Grandpa, this place is great."

    The rooms were spacious and having breakfasts all together around the table was truly welcomed. The location could not have been better for us as we were no more that 10 minutes away from the wedding venue. The owners were super friendly and very helpful in providing local information and recommendations for restaurants ,etc… To quote our eldest son who arrived earlier than us, "This place is awesome" and my wife and I could not agree more.

    We will definitely, given the chance to return to the area, inquire for the availability of the Seawillows. We recommend this location for your stay.

    Great group outing
    We came here with a group of 13 of us for a friends wedding. Steve was so helpful, he even sent us a detailed list of things to do/restaurants/bars/recommendations. It was very helpful and we went to several places on the list. Very close to the events we needed to attend. The house has 7 bedrooms, multiple beds and even 2 child sized beds. We had a great stay, and can't wait to come back up to visit the Cape!

    Roomy place in a quiet area
    We had 10 people with us during our stay. The 2 bathrooms were more than adequate. The sleeping arrangement were as well. The house is gorgeous with the charm of an old cape house. Butler's pantry with an additional sink and coffee station was on point and the extra space was useful for meal prep for 10. Plenty of dishes, seating, outdoor seating, grills and separate areas for people who wanted their own areas. Close enough to beaches, about a mile to the closest beach and 20 min to Mayflower beach. The washer and dryer were too small for anything more than incidentals, which was fine for us. We did our laundry at a place a couple blocks away. Everyone's laundry for $20 and about an hour of our time, no problem there. Steve was great, the property was everything we thought it would be, would love to stay there again.

    Perfect Cape Cod Getaway!!

    Steve and Maura's home is the perfect place for a Cape Cod vacation! Their home is located close to the best beaches, restaurants and shops all within walking distance. You could also tell that Steve and Maura took extra care this year with deep cleaning as well as providing all of the products needed for cleaning during your stay which was an added bonus as those items may have been difficult to find otherwise. In addition to the cleaning products the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could need for entertaining or relaxing as well as all sheets and blankets provided which makes planning and packing simple. The outdoor space is fantastic and provides enough room for eating or sitting in the Adirondack chairs with a glass of wine at the end of the day . In the front room is a large table for eating or games if you should have a night where the weather does not cooperate.

    I can't recommend Steve and Maura's home enough if you are planning a cape cod vacation and we are looking forward to next year!

    Hi Suzanne & Derek,
    Thank you so much for the great review. You guys left the house so clean Maura was thrilled (and she isn't often thrilled when walking into the house after guests leave)! And thank you for noticing on the added cleaning supplies; that was again due to Maura's forethought. As mentioned we would love to host you guys in the future so just let us know whenever you want to come back. Enjoy the rest of the summer & year.
    All the best - Steve & Maura

    Loved this house!

    Had a great time here! This house has many rooms to accommodate the big crew we had. We loved how the house had all the necessary updates but still had Cape house character. Having the two kitchen areas was key when we were cooking and cleaning up after big family meals. Our favorite place was the porch. We hung out there every morning sipping coffee and evening playing games, reading, or indulging in hobbies. Didn't matter if it rained, we loved the porch. Everyone agreed that the beds (and the sheets) were amazingly comfortable. Location is very central so easy to get everywhere. And the owners were so nice and easygoing. Highly recommend! show more show less

    Lovely, spacious home

    My family and I stayed here for 6 days and we loved every second of our vacation! Due to COVID-19 we did not do much sightseeing, and we only left the house to go to the beach. Despite this fact my entire family had a blast and we are eager to come back next year. My two nieces are already asking to return! The house is clean, very well stocked, and quite large. Steve and Maura were very communicative and helpful, especially considering the fact that we reached out for a last-minute rental. I would highly recommend them and their home to any future guests. show more show less

    We were 3 families with young children to spend the week-end at Steve's house. We felt like at home. The house has lots of charm, it is very well maintained and comfortable. All bedrooms have light shutters (that was precious to avoid having the children waking up too early...) The house has toys for children, precious too! We had the chance to meet Maura, that was lovely too...!

    West Harwich Vacation House is a Gem on the Cape!!!

    Hi Steve & Maura,

    We had a blast with our family and friends last summer at your home in West Harwich. We like to gather with a bunch of college friends once or twice a year and your home provided the perfect venue for our gathering. We had 6 couples and there was plenty of room to relax and chill inside and out. The proximity to everything the Cape has to offer is ideal for our group.

    We walked to Dennisport a couple of nights so no one had to worry about drinking and driving, actually the 10 minute walk sobered some of our frisky friends up a bit on the way home! Having 5+ restaurants/bars in walking distance (most within a half mile) is ideal, not just for the boozers, but for all of us who wanted to walk off a bit of dinner.

    And the nights we stayed in were great. The kitchen provides all the tools necessary for a great feast along with the grill right outside the door. It made it simple to prepare a gourmet meal (including my world famous succotash!).

    Being situated on the mid Cape was nice too as we could go easily to Nantucket with the ferry right in Harwich for a day trip (the bike path there is fantastic) or to head down to Wellfleet or Provincetown for some fun people watching or beaching at the National Seashore.

    We appreciated your recommendations on things to do. Our walks to conservation land about a mile away provided us with awesome vistas in several directions with the bike path in the same vicinity made getting a nice bike ride another option for those seeking exercise.

    When we first looked at the house on your website, we wondered if we would have enough space, but once entering the house, realized it's much bigger than it appears on the site.

    Finally, thank you so much for your recommendation of using www.weneedavacation.com instead of Homeaway/VRBO. We used the savings to have an awesome meal out with the savings of the 'user fee' that they charge!!

    We will look forward to coming back this year and many more as we loved the ability that your charming home had to make some memories with old and new friends.

    Sincerely Jim J.

    Hi Jim,
    I really appreciate you taking the time to put together such a thoughtful review. You thought of some things I don't think I would have remembered! As you know, your band of college friends are always welcome at our home. We look forward to hosting your crew again this year in September. Sincerely, Steve & Maura PS - If you share, I want to get your world famous recipe for succotash, it sounds delicious!

    My wife Maura and I were going through the house with the previous owner. While we knew it needed TLC, we stopped on the front staircase and agreed we had to figure out a way to get the beautiful property. We have been working for the last 17 years on lovingly restoring it to provide a special gathering place for our family and friends and yours too! Our home (Seawillows) provides the location and you and your loved ones provide the ingredients to make great memories.

    Our home was initially built in 1840 and was added to early in the 1900's and we have continued to make improvements while keeping the fantastic character which attracted us to it.

    The house has plenty of space for kids and parents to have their own space to hang out and have a memorable vacation.

    Steve/Maura Snow purchased this house in 2004.

    What is special about this property?
    We have had the opportunity to host our friends and family many times through the last 17 years. The home is a place where people relax and spend time with loved ones that maybe they haven't had a chance to in a long time.
    Our daughter said when she was 9 years old that she wants to be married here because all the atmosphere lends itself to relaxation, peace and enjoyment. We have had fantastic feedback from so many folks we've had the good fortune to host.

    The fact that Dennisport is an easy walk of about a 1/2 mile to several fun restaurants and shoppes was something we didn't anticipate when we bought 17 years ago. At that time, Dennis port wasn't nearly as fun, vibrant and nice. There are now a host of great restaurants, a wonderful bakery (Buckies!), shoppes, Organic food market and much more all within about a 10 minute walk.

    What is special about your town?
    West Harwich is in the middle of the Cape so it's easy to make day trips. Most people don't make it much farther than 20 minutes away, because it offers anything you would want close by: nice beaches, ponds, hiking, biking, fishing, restaurants, shopping. A lot of which is a short walk down a quiet street to Dennis port. There are bumper boats, go-carts, mini golf, trampolines, movie theater for other entertainment. Since it's Mid/Lower Cape you can get to anywhere on the Cape within an hour. We happen to love the Lower Cape (Orleans, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown) and Chatham, Dennis and Brewster as well. We like Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket also and there is a ferry right in town for Nantucket and we can drive less than 30 minutes to the Vineyard ferry for easy day trips.
