Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 queen size sleeper sofa, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

Come relax & unwind in this spacious, beautiful and newly renovated 1,100 square foot, 2 br, 1 bath cottage in Dennisport. It is tucked back in away from the main street on a quiet side street. You will love the location of the cottage - as it is within walking distance to downtown village (about 7 minutes) where you'll find a wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor, newly opened pub / restaurant, a great coffee/biscotti house, an ATM, convenient store, liquor store, drug store, pizzeria, the General Store and a few other interesting shops and restaurants - all within walking distance from the cottage. Drive 5 minutes or 3/4 of a mile down the street - at the end of the road - and there are the BEACHES in both directions - many to choose from!

Cottage is considered Mid-Cape - which means it's centrally located to visit many of the other beautiful quaint Cape Cod towns all within a short drive from the cottage. That includes the ferries to Martha's Vineyard in nearby Hyannis (about 10 miles from the cottage) or the ferry to Nantucket - even closer - about 5 miles from the cottage.

For visiting the beaches - the cottage is also a short bike ride to the beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. We recommend driving - as you'll want to take the beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and beach accessories with you that we provide for your use.

Cottage is newly furnished, painted and decorated with all modern amenities including Hi--def flat screen tv, cable, Free Wi-fi, dvd player, i-phone doc for music, pack n' play, outdoor shower, cd/radio, AC, fully equipped eat in-kitchen with toaster, microwave, coffee pot, lobster pot, washer and dryer. I have a terrific current DVD collection if you get a rainy day or just want to have a family movie night. I also have a nice selection of coffee, teas, staples, linens, bags, foil, laundry detergent and fabric softener and even toilet paper for your use. So no need to haul all of this with you - it's there for your use. All linens and towels provided.

The spacious family room has a fireplace, comfy furniture w/ queen sleeper sofa that sleeps 2 in the LR. Covered front porch w/ 2 rockers to sip your morning coffee and plan your day. Enjoy outdoor BBQ's in our spacious outdoor space. There are several different lounging and eating areas throughout the yard if you want to escape the kids and read a book by our chiminea w/ a glass of lemonade or glass of wine. You can choose to sit in the sun - or under one of our 50 foot pine trees in the backyard or even take an afternoon nap on the hammock. Enjoy our fire pit making s'mores in the evenings after dinner. Our shed is filled w/ horseshoes, softball/mitts, v-ball, bad mitten if you're up for a little fun with the kids!

Love biking? Whether visiting in spring, summer or fall, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is within minutes from the house. It's a scenic, paved 22 mile path that stretches from South Dennis to Wellfleet complete w/ restrooms & scenic stops en route. Why rent a bike? For your pleasure, we provide 5-6 bikes with helmets. Also, beach chairs and beach towels are provided for your use. NOTHING TO BRING BUT YOURSELVES!

House is non-smoking - and pets are not accepted. Parking for 4 cars

House not big enough - or want separate space for inlaws, friends?? Rent our smaller cottage out back - charming 2 BR w/ all amenities (property # 3023171 on homeaway). Completely private & fenced in. .

About Melisa Cooper-Davis

We purchased this home in 2012 and have enjoyed every moment since. We visit the Cape all year round so the home is treated with extra TLC and the decorations, amenities and special touches you will see reflect that. We continue to update furnishings, decorative touches each year - making it appealing to not only us, but anyone who stays with us. We want you to get the full "Cape Cod" experience. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Melisa Cooper-Davis chose Dennis

We've been returning to this area year after year since our first trip to Nantucket - and have been in love with New England since. Dennisport is central - mid cape location - close to lots of quaint shops, clean and beautiful calm waters of the Nantucket Sound. A little slice of heaven! The people are lovely.

What makes this cottage unique

Excellent mid-cape location. Short drive to any of the other towns in the Cape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, sister and I stayed @ this great house for 5 nights and just loved it! Quiet, private location that had everything we needed from wonderful comfortable beds & nice linens to a well-stocked kitchen! Even stainless steel pans! First time in all my Homeaway rentals over the years that I didn't have to go to Job Lot to buy something that was missing! Warm & cozy during the rainy days we had and very clean! We enjoyed the firepit outdoors & we got to meet Melisa & Ed who get a 10+ for customer service! They are friendly & fun and so concerned about our satisfaction.



We would stay here again and highly recommend this property as it's centrally located to beaches, shopping, and restaurants and it's cute, comfy and beautifully maintained!

Great vacations with a lot of extras

  • 5 of 5

This well kept, beautifully decorated and centrally located home in the mid cape area of Cape Cod made for the perfect base camp after long days at the beach and travelling from Woods Hole and up to Provincetown. It was nice to come home at the end of a busy day and unwind by the fire pit with the family. The house has a very well equipped kitchen with just about anything you can think of including a waffle and panini maker. When I talked to Melissa a few days before our trip I realized that I didn't need to bring the usual supplies that I normally would when renting a house, like linens, cleaning and laundry supplies. As far as beach items, I left them all at home because beach towels are provided, as well as chairs, a lot of toys, boogie boards, skim boards, beach umbrella and beach cart. The bikes were also a huge plus too. All of the extras at this home really made it easy to pack and have a stress free vacation at the Cape. Thank you Melissa and Ed for making our first visit to the Cape a great one!

Pretty House, Awesome Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a ball at house, loved everything about it :) The house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and fully equipped. Beach stuff and bicycles were a n add on bonus and cant forget about the hammock :) absolutely loved it. The location is near sooooo many awesome beaches and restaurants. The beds were comfy and the home decor was very pretty. Thanks for sharing your house.

These homeowners take hospitality to a new level!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely thrilled with this stay. We have stayed at home away properties all over the country and this by far was the best. We were greeted with a hand written note from the owners and a basket of Cape Cod chips, Godiva chocolate, and wine. Everything you need is provided. DVDs, family games, toilet paper, paper towel, laundry detergent, soap, tea, coffee, and on and on. The property itself is gorgeous. It was so comfortable for our family. We plan on returning when it is warmer.

Clean and updated house!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in the heart of the cape! Never ending supply of hot water and modern appliances help families relax. House size accommodated 4 adults and 1 infant perfectly. Quick walk to a wonderful biscotti location and a couple of cute shops. Drive or bike to local beaches. Definite return destination.

Lovely Cottage - great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for everything, including the step by step instructions on the phone about operating the DVD player! The cottage is lovely and has pretty much everything someone can need for a great week at the Cape! I really enjoyed the fire pit - and the cool evenings made it the perfect way to end hot days at the beach! Really appreciated all of the great Cape info and suggestions that you provided. I have been to the Cape many times but discovered new restaurants, etc., thanks to your help! I hope to return next year- I will be in touch!!

10 / 10 rental property

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic property which we would totally recommend:

- a lovely house with an ace garden for the children to play in;

- we really appreciated the fact the house was stocked with loads of spices, laundry products, toilet paper, etc (since we were coming from the UK, we don't want to have to buy these items and it helps give the house a really generous welcoming feeling);

- the house was much bigger the photos suggest and nicely decorated inside and out;

- great location, we visited a different beach every day using our Dennis beach pass;

- the owners were lovely to deal with, we did not meet them but we felt they were at hand if necessary, and get the impression that they really care and are proud about their property and want guests to have a great time.
