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.

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!
