Description of the West Dennis vacation cottage rental

Our family was looking for a special cottage on the Cape for a long time and once we walked into The Pines - we knew right away it was a very unique place.

Summer Pines Cottage in this family-friendly lakefront community under the pines is newly renovated, neat and clean and has just about everything you need for a great stay.

Swimming kayaking, canoeing and fishing are barefoot steps away in Kelley's Pond.

Kelly's Pond is uncrowded and private (for only the houses on the lake) and has a sandy bottom and wade in area next to the community dock for little ones.

Summer Pines Cottage is also an easy walk or quick bike ride to West Dennis Beach.

First floor bedroom with queen bed has peeks of the pond.

Two separate sleeping lofts with one twin bed in each with reading nooks, window ACs, and TV/VCR are upstairs under the eaves with a banistered walkway in between and accessed by a spiral staircase.

LINENS and TOWELS included










We love this sweet holiday home and have stocked the cottage with items that we felt our family would like while on vacation ~ the full kitchen has all you need for cooking meals at home ~ utensils, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, wine glasses, grilling tools ~ even a lobster pot.

No pets and no smoking.

SUMMER PINES COTTAGE books up quickly with many repeat renters ~ We are now booking Fall 2015 and May - Oct 2016 so take a look at our calendar and contact us today~

Great experience!

June 22, 2015

Our stay at Summer Pines was awesome, thank you so much for opening up your property to us! The cottage and surrounding area are beautiful. We had a great time! We loved the outdoor shower and I was very thankful for the rocking chairs and step stool, as a toddler mom those things are helpful, thank you. This is a kid/small family friendly cottage. Going in June was perfect for our little one as the weather wasn't as hot and so we were able to do a lot of outdoor activities. The cottage is an easy bike ride from the beach and is conveniently located, yet has a private feel to it. Recommendations from Valerie via the Home Away app were very helpful. The cottage was very nice and well kept and we very much appreciated our stay. Thank you again!

A Place to Call Home

Summer Pines was perfect for us during our stay. It was a great experience to stay in a lovely Cape cottage. Thank you so much for providing all the ammenities you do. The pictures Valerie has posted on this site and herr own website and her Facebook page are 100% accurate. Summer Pines has all the charm of the Cape I have always pictured. The cottage is the perfect size for two or a small family. The location in West Dennis is outstanding. From the first time I had contact with Valerie when inquiring about her property until we returned from our vacation, Valerie was prompt with all replies, answered any questions I had and she refunded the security deposit in less than a week. It is obvious she truly cares about Summer Pines and the Cape. This was our first visit to Cape Cod and it was everything we could have hoped for. Biking the Cape Cod Rail Trail was a wonderful beginning to our week. We were thrilled with the beaches of Dennis (Corporation, Mayflower and West Dennis). We watched kite boarders, enjoyed gorgeous sunsets, and were amazed at how far into Cape Cod Bay you could walk at low tide. We spent a day in Provincetown and were very impressed with Art's Dunes Tours and stopped at various lighthouses at beaches on Cape Cod National Seashore. We also went to Falm/outh/Woods Hole where we saw Nobska Light, Spohr Gardens and the Knob. Our last daytrip was to Orleans/Chatham to enjoy more unique beaches and another lighthouse. Finally, we were fortunate enough to get to two Cape Cod Baseball League games at Yarmouth Dennis High School just minutes from Summer Pines. Do yourself a favor and rent Summer Pines for your vacation on Cape Cod and experience the Cape as it was meant to be.

An exquisite place to stay

October 16, 2014

The cottage is fabulous with every convenience anyone could need or wish for. Beautifully clean and thoughtfully decorated. We used the cottage as a base to visit the whole of Cape Cod from bottom to top and down again.. Memorable trips were whale watching, Hyannis and the Kennedy Museum, Harbour boat trip from Hyannis and seals in the harbour, pretty Chatham, In fact all the towns and beaches we visited were fantastic. We saw and did so much it is difficult to choose any favourites. This is definitely a cottage and a place we will visit again.

Great getaway!

September 12, 2013

Had a wonderful time at the cottage. My friend and I were very pleased and enjoyed the quiet. The cottage was quite comfortable and very clean. Location was perfect and made it easy to venture off in both directions to points of interest. West Dennis Beach was great. Sunset at Mayflower Beach was spectacular and dinner at the Ocean House Restaurant is a must. Valerie has created a warm and cozy cottage, fully supplied with everything you need.(Beach chairs, towels, sheets, etc.) Check it out. You won't be sorry.

Cute cottage on quiet street

September 4, 2013

Our family of 4 (two boys aged 6 and 3) had a fabulous week here. We highly recommend kayaking on the Bass river, jet skiing at The Lighthouse Inn, the Pirate Boat out of Hyannis and West Dennis and Mayflower beaches. We enjoyed biking to the beach (saves $20 too!) and my husband enjoyed free wifi at the West Dennis Library. We were blessed with a gorgeous week of weather here and really loved using the outdoor shower. Thank you for a wonderful week in your beautiful cottage Valerie and family!

Relaxing getaway

May 28, 2013

Very cozy little cottage. Clean warm and bright. There was always a nice little breeze coming off the pond. Was very peaceful and quiet. Loved listening to and watching the birds. The pond was quiet and surprisingly warm for May. The cottage has two loft bedrooms attached by a catwalk which I think kids would love. Everything you need is within walking distance. Valerie was very helpful. Got us in last minute and provided all kinds of helpful and informative information about the area. Morning coffee on the patio in the sun was such a treat. Had a very relaxing wonderful time. Can't wait to visit again and to check out the cottage in Maine it sound delightful !!!!!

Picture Perfect Cottage in the Cape

February 4, 2013

Fantastic weekend away in Cape Cod! The charming tree lined street and a view of the pond made it even more perfect! I enjoyed my coffee every morning looking toward at the water from the peaceful front porch. The cottage was immaculate and fit all of our needs. The backyard has a beautiful porch and opens into a surprisingly spacious yard!(nice landscaping too!) Cant say enough. We are definitely coming back! Thanks for the great experience!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This cozy super clean cottage was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Perfect for the two of us as we had never been to Cape Cod before so wanted a central base for day trips. The beach was about a 15 min walk or just a few minutes by car and kayak and bike rentals were close by. We really enjoyed our week here!

My family and I vacationed here in August...great location for families with young children. My son loved it here, very peaceful, friendly, clean. This was a very different vacation for us very restful, accommodations where wonderful...loved not having to drag all my linens. This cottage was immaculate and the owner was very helpful and followed up immediately with any questions we had. Thank you for a great vacation!!!
- Jason

The cottage is beautifully decorated, drenched in light, and enjoys breezes from Kelly's pond. If you're a walker you'll have a variety of walks... to Bass river past classic cape cod homes, to West Dennis beach, a nice playground is nearby, or to a local Cafe, Pizza shop, or General Store... it's all within walking distance. A short ride to Bass River Farmers Market. If there is a rainy day, pick up a duraflame log and enjoy a fire. Young explorers and those seeking peace will find the dock across the street to be a great place. Our daughters, ages 8 and 9 1/2, adored the loft area. We really enjoyed our stay.
- Linda

Thanks so much again for such a wonderful time. The kids and I had a great time and your home was beautiful! I was wondering if the same week was open for next year?
- Christina

Thank you for the rental on Pond Street in West Dennis that ended this past Saturday. We had a great time and the weather was perfect.
- Jo

We had an amazing time. What a magical little spot you have!
- Dee

Summer Pines cottage was a good getaway for me. We also found the place in West Dennis where my sister and her husband spent their honeymoon 50 years ago. It overlooks the West Dennis golf course and the Bass River. She said it had not changed at all. Although I've vacationed more than 20 times on the Cape, there is always something new to discover. We went to the WHAT (Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre) in Wellfleet. On a rainy day, we took in the Cape Cod Art Museum and funky movie theater in Dennis.
- Marlene

We had a wonderful time. We walked around the pond and went to the beach. Visited The Skipper and had chowder. Very good. Ate at the Kream n Cone and had a few too many Irish ales at O'Sheas. People were so nice and friendly there. Had a pretty nice conversation there with Butch the bartender! The only bad part about the whole thing was it was too short! Very nice little cottage. We pretty much had the run of the place. No one else was around. All and all an excellent trip. Thanks for getting us in last minute. Really appreciate that. Will definitely check it out again.
- Marilyn

Summer Pines Cottage is one of the nicest rental cottage in the area - it is updated, well stocked/decorated and feels airy with lots of natural light from the skylight and glass sliders to the large deck and patio.The West Dennis location is uncrowded and very beautiful. The cottage is in an upscale neighborhood, surrounded by large, well kept homes and are within walking distance to everything - the beach, restaurants and harbors etc.
