Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8 w/ queen sleeper sofa in LR

New for 2018! Coming...our cottage is being expanded for the 2018 rental season featuring an expanded lower level w/ additional bedroom, full bath and reading nook - making this charming cottage to sleep 8! Cottage will be an additional 450 square feet in our lower level plus the 1200 square feet upstairs. If you love what you see now - you will LOVE it even more with the "Below Deck" feel featuring port holes in our bedroom! Updated pictures forthcoming in next few months to reflect our new change.

For 2017 - Come relax & unwind in this spacious, beautiful and newly renovated 1,200 square foot, 2 BR, 1 full 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 allowed. 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 Port

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 house 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!

Quaint comfortable romantic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our stay. Close to everything! We had a wood fire every night. The cottage is decorated in a beach theme. Very tastefully done! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals! The owner Melissa was fantastic and had suggestions of where to go and eat and places to see. We will return again in warmer weather!

So happy we found Sweet Retreat! Will definitely book again!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Sweet Retreat we knew we had found a gem! We rented from 8/12-8/19 for a family vacaction with our two children and found Melissa and Ed's home to be terrific. The house is exactly as pictured, great furniture, some fun, whimsical artwork and cool decorative touches as well. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked with everything you could possibly need, including basic spices, tea, coffee, creamer, paper towels, coffee filters, Reynolds wrap, soaps, dishwasher detergent, etc... The two bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage for clothes and suitcases and it was great having a washer and dryer too! One of the best things about the house is access to two sheds filled with newer bicycles, beach toys, skim boards, beach chairs and fun things to bring to the beach. The back yard is private and has a great fire pit surrounded by adirondack chairs. We had a campfire and made s'mores almost every night. There is also a picnic table and a chiminea. The house also comes complete with linens, towels and beach towels as well!

Melissa and Ed are terrific hosts; available when needed and quick to respond. They also had great suggestions on places to visit, such as restaurants, museums and the best beaches!

Great Location and Cottage to Explore the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Sweet Retreat! It was a great, central location to call home base and explore the rest of the Cape. We easily drove all the way to Provincetown as well as Falmouth to catch the Martha's Vineyard ferry. Never felt like anything was too far away. The town of Dennisport is quaint, and has all the necessary amenities for the stay (grocery, pharmacy, gas station, restaurants and dessert spots).

The cottage itself is homey, and was well equipped for all our needs. The owners have put together a thoughtful guidebook to help with restaurant suggestions and things to do. Though there is a/c in the windows of all rooms, it was rarely needed due to the great ceiling fans in every room. The outside shed is more than stocked with beach toys, chairs, coolers and bikes. Nothing additional needed to enjoy the beach!

The highlights of our trip were the Hyannis Whale Watching tour, our day trip to Martha's Vineyard (rent a car thru Budget), and the Fish, Snails and Horseshoe Crab Tails at Salt Pond National Seashore.

Had the best lobster roll at Brax Landing and the best clam chowder at Captain Parkers.

This was our first trip to Cape Cod and we will be coming back again! Wonderful family trip! Thanks to Ed and Melisa for the use of their home!

A lovely cottage in a central location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at Sweet Retreat. The house is very well equipped and centrally located for many great beaches. We enjoyed seeing the whales from Provincetown and using the fantastic cycle track. Melisa was very helpful and also returned items to us that we left in the house very quickly . We would recommend staying here.
