3 Minute Walk to Mayflower Beach
|No rental rates available - please contact the owner|
Pets allowed: No
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.
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!

The location of this home is amazing! It was great for our family because, with two small kids, we were able to send one person home with them if they needed a nap and not ruin everyone else's beach day. Our proximity to the beach made it possible to go back each night to watch the sunset as well! The house had everything we needed and the yard was nice as well. We loved the outdoor shower! I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing beach week with family or friends.

We like this area and love that we can walk to the beach anytime (especially low tide for the kids) the parking lot gets full by 10am sometimes. The street is nice and quiet with recently renovated homes. The house has a great open floor plan and the a/c units were great when it got humid at the end of the week. We also loved going to the Dennis Public Market for breakfast sandwiches and groceries. Ice-cream Smuggler was a hit with the kids too.

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!

Another great vacation!

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!

Hi Tony, Thank you so much for the use of your "Cape House". It is a lovely place and we had a great week! We would like to do it again next year, so if it is possible could we put the deposit towards a hold for the same week? Then when you start your rentals we could send a deposit? Thanks again, your Cape home was awesome!!!! Susan H. Danvers, MA; July 2009
