Description of the West Dennis vacation cottage rental
This highly-rated, renovated, tidy cottage in Kelly's Pond waterfront community is centrally located in West Dennis ~ West Dennis beach, the village, shops, restaurants, bars and harbor are all within walking distance. The best of both worlds.

Summer Pines Cottage sits under the pines among a handful of well-kept cottages in a lakefront community with swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing just steps away. The cottages are a nice distance from each other and the cottage has a large private backyard for outdoor games and bbq.

Thoughtfully decorated in classic Cape cottage style ~ the cottage is perfect for a family or couple.

The cottage sleeps 4-5 very well.

It has a large first floor queen bed master bedroom with peeks of Kelley's pond. This bedroom can fit a porta crib if you need/bring one.

Two more loft bedrooms are upstairs (one twin bed in each bedroom with an extra twin cot or blow up bed under each bed) with a banistered walkway in between them and accessed by a spiral staircase.

The two loft bedrooms each have reading nooks, window ACs and one of the loft bedrooms has a TV/VCR. Great place for kids to hang out while the adults enjoy the open kitchen/living room, dining porch or the deck and patio area with a grill.

The cottage also has a working fireplace and baseboard heat for cool nights, a flat screen TV with cable and sky-lit vaulted ceiling with a fan for hot days. It is laid out so that there is space and places for everyone to enjoy a bit of privacy.

There is CABLE and a DVD and VCR on two TVs and WIFI wireless internet.

There is a new outdoor shower to rinse off from the beach or lake or for your morning shower.

There is also a small playground with swing set just for the community.

Unusual for Cape rentals but very handy for families and guests traveling to Cape Cod by air - this cottage also includes all bed linens, towels and has a washer and dryer.

We love this sweet place 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 great meals at home ~ utensils, dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, wine glasses, grilling tools ~ even a lobster pot. The bathroom is stocked with towels, hairdryer and iron, the upstairs bedroom has a nice collection of children's videos, games and books and we also have some outdoor games.

When you arrive, you will feel as if you have gone back in time to the way Cape Cod used to be - leave the city cares behind, change into your flip flops, go jump in the lake or stroll into town for a drink watching the sunset over the harbor or to the beach for ice cream at the beach snack bar.

Available May - Oct, Summer Pines cottage is a great getaway - just 1.5 hours from Boston.

NO PETS. No smoking.

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

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

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

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
