Description of the Dennis vacation home rental

Charming, beautifully decorated, air-conditioned 6 room ranch just 2 short blocks from Mayflower Beach, the most popular and family-friendly beach on Cape Cod. Chapin's Beach is also within walking distance. Plenty of parking on property, large kitchen area, family room, living room, 1.5 baths plus additional outside shower, deck, Weber BBQ grill, washer & dryer, dishwasher, expanded cable TV (includes NESN!), 2 TV's, 2 DVD's, free HIGH SPEED wireless internet, free local and domestic long distance calls, 2 bedrooms upstairs (1 queen, 2 twins -all new mattresses), fold-out queen sofa upstairs, 2 queen beds in finished basement.

Our home is located off 6A on the Cape Cod Bay side on a quiet road, with a large shaded backyard. It's a short 5 minute walk to Chapin's Restaurant (great food & sports bar). A longer walk (or short drive) is the picturesque and historic village of Dennis. Many restaurants, shops, live theater, and attractions are only minutes away.

Area Information

The quiet, beach-oriented nature of Dennis perhaps derives from its namesake, the Reverend Josiah Dennis, pastor of Yarmouth's East Parish. He would probably approve of the town's lack of commercial development, its ten town beaches, and seven conservation areas.

Rev. Dennis' saltbox home, the Josiah Dennis Manse, is open to the public with rooms decorated in the style of the minister's day. Further along Route 6A on Scargo Lake is Scargo Hill Tower, built on the highest spot in the area at 160 feet above sea level. From the top of the 38-step tower, you can see from Barnstable Harbor to the west to Provincetown in the east.

Also on Route 6A in Dennis is the Cape Playhouse, the oldest summer playhouse in the country. Converted in 1927 from an 1820 Unitarian Church, Basil Rathbone, Bette Davis, Gregory Peck, and Henry Fonda are among the famous actors who have graced the boards. Also on the grounds the Cape Museum of Fine Arts houses a collection 500 works by Cape-associated artists.

Dennis' hiking trails, all open to the public, include Crowes Pasture off South Street at the end of Quivet Cemetery in East Dennis and the 87 acre Fresh Pond Conservation Area off Route 134.

Other activities in and around Dennis include bike-riding on the old Cape Cod Railway, two outstanding public golf courses, many great restaurants, unique shopping and, of course, beautiful sand dune beaches!

Great Vacation

Once again we really enjoyed our stay in your comfortable home. We were lucky enough to have a few beautiful days. The kids really enjoyed the beach and even went in the water. We were lucky enough to find Sand Dollars which the kids from Texas are taking home with them. Thank you again letting us tay in your home.

Perfect beach house!

HI Tony, We had a wonderful time at "The Cape House." It was a much needed break from a very busy year. The house was perfect and felt so much a home! The kids, who normally get a little freaked not being in their own home, especially at night, loved it and felt very comfortable. And we loved the short walk to the beach!


Westfield, MA


Loved the location! House is clean, comfortable, and has all the amentities we wanted and needed. Would highly recommend this property, especially to a family with children.

We love this beach house! This was our second year renting. The location is perfect!! We walk to the beach and to Chapin's, a local restuarant and bar. This house is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Would definitely recommend this place to spend a great vacation on Cape Cod!!!!

Great trip!

The house was great for our family of four and the walk is indeed only a few short minutes from the beach. This was perfect for us with little ones!

I stayed here July 2006 - GREAT house lots of room and a short walk to the beach - which was good because I had a small guy with us. Plenty of room 3 bedrooms upstairs on the main floor and a room downstairs with two full size beds - where the teenagers stayed they got their privacy and we got quite! Close to lots of good restaurants and the Playhouse. Can't wait to go back!
