Description of the West Dennis vacation cottage rental

Summer Pines Cottage is in a lovely, uncrowded area of West Dennis with access and water views of Kelley's Pond and within walking distance of the village, the harbor and an easy 1/2 mile walk to West Dennis Beach - one of the longest and best beaches in the area.

The thoughtfully updated cottage sits under the whispering pines among a handful of charming cottages in a peaceful, lakefront private community with a clean lake for swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing just barefoot steps away across the dead end way. The cottages are a nice distance away from each other and Summer Pines Cottage has a large and private backyard - perfect for outdoor games while you have dinner and drinks on the deck.

There is a small private playground two cottages away just for the community.

Newly renovated and decorated in comfortable and classic Cape cottage style, it has a larger bedroom on the first floor with peeks of the lake and two separate sleeping loft bedrooms (one twin bed in each) with angled ceilings separated by a banistered walkway over the living room and accessed by a spiral staircase - best for older children, adults or well-supervised younger kids. If you have a toddler or baby - there is an extra folding twin cot and a sleeper couch downstairs and the main bedroom or livingroom can fit a portacrib you might bring or the twin cot. The cottage sleeps 4-5 comfortably.

The two loft areas each have reading nooks, window AC and one of the loft areas has a TV/VCR and a selection of kid's videos as well. Great place for kids to hang out while the adults enjoy the open kitchen and living room and long dining porch with water views or the private large deck and patio area with a grill. The living area has a fireplace for cool nights, a flat screen TV and sky-lit vaulted ceiling with a fan for hot days.The cottage is laid out in a cool way so that there is space and places for everyone to enjoy privacy.

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

The bathroom has a walk-in shower and there is also a new hot water outdoor shower to rinse off from the beach or the lake or for your morning shower in nature - a real Cape Cod treat.

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 a washer and dryer.

When you arrive at Summer Pines Cottage you will feel as if you have gone back in time to the way Cape Cod used to be when families arrived for the whole summer - spilling out of their station wagons after a long drive full of happy anticipation for a summer stretching out endlessly.

So, leave the city cares behind, change into your bathing suit and flip flops, go jump in the lake or stroll into town to watch the boats in the harbor or to the beach for the sparkling blue ocean, warm sand between your toes and ice cream bought at the beach snack bar.

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

No pets. No smoking please.

weekend in cape cod

What a lovely visit we had! Took an outdoor shower everyday! Sipped coffee looking out at the pond and had amazing walks along the beach. Very clean and comfortable little gem!

Great getaway!

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

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!

Paradise on private lake

Very well kept, beautifull cottage where we stayed for a week with our family (two teenagers). The cottage is cosy, and there is a beautifull terace on the backside.t The outdoor shower is lovely after a swim in the lake (the wather tis salt). Peacefull and quiet surroundings. We can recommend it!

Relaxing getaway

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

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


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.

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?

Thanks so much again for such a wonderful time. The kids and I had a great time and your home was beautiful!

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

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.

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.

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.
