About this listing
Charming private residence, located approx 1 mile to the village of Harwich Port and centrally located on the Cape for day trips to Falmouth or Provincetown.
This is my primary residence and my home has 3 guest bedrooms, two on the first floor (Joy and Wish Rooms) and a third (Lighthouse Room), up a steep staircase on the second floor. Both the Joy and Wish Room have newer wall-to-wall carpeting and the Lighthouse Room has refinished hardwood floors.
Wireless connectivity throughout, with cable TV in the Joy Room.
I also rent rooms in my carriage house. See my other listing on airbnb.
Guests have exclusive use of the 1st floor bathroom and can also use the spacious outside shower that has both hot and cold water. Guests also may use the living room, dining room, seasonal sun-room and brick patio area. I rent to only 1 party at a time from 1-5 people and I reside mainly on second floor. My indoor cats Izzy and Simon, have full run of the house.
Interaction with Guests
I like to meet with my guests at check in, get them situated and answer any questions they may have. Then may see them in the morning or when they return at the end of the day.
My home is situated on the south side of Route 28 aka Main Street, which is the original road running parallel to Nantucket Sound. This is a busy road. There are several other interesting antique homes in the area and we are mid-way between 2 roads that travel south to Red River Beach.
The Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority's H2O route travels past our home and will connect you to Hyannis and Orleans. This method of transport is very slow, so please check schedule online. The seasonal Freedom Ferry to Natucket is only 1/2 mile away.
Other Things to Note
There are 2 homes on my property and this listing is for the front house which has a front porch numbered 825 on white column by steps. Park in front of white fence and enter through gate. Second home set back, is a carriage house with a plaque that indicates address as 825 Rear. I have a separate Airbnb listing for this house as well. Also, 2 motels in the area for extra guests are The Coachman and Handkerchief Shoals. I may be able to refer you to other airbnb hosts in the area with availability, so please ask.

Sara was the perfect host. She greeted us, opened her home to us, and slipped out of the way so that we could enjoy her treasure on Cape Cod. We found her engaging and friendly. Indeed, we enjoyed getting to know Sara as much as we enjoyed our mini-vacation. The home was clean and comfortable. The outside shower, patio, hammock were thoroughly enjoyed. We could not have found a better place to be our anchor during our exploration of this portion of the Cape.
We stayed at Sara's house for 2 night. This is a beautiful, clean house with lots of space! Beds were very comfortable! Sara is a wonderful host! Gave us fantastic advices on where to eat and where to go in the area. When we go out for dinner, she even help us with the laundry. I would definitely recommend Sara's house, and love to come back one day. Thank you Sara for everything.
Check in was a breeze with Sarah there to greet us and give us counsel on things to do in the area. The location is terrific with accommodations clean and fresh. We were comfortable throughout our stay and enjoyed it very much.
We had a marvellous time staying with Sara. The house was beautiful, very tranquil and comfortable. Sara had lots of helpful suggestions about places to go and things to do. There was a great ice cream shop 5 mins walk away, and just past that a good restaurant.
Thank you Sara for letting us stay in your lovely Cape Cod home! We were in such close proximity to the wedding we attended at the Wychere Yacht Club, as well as fun activities to do in Chatham, Dennis, and Yarmouth. Your house was in the perfect location to explore and go out to eat all over the area. It was also a short walk to the beach!
Sara’s house was very private and quiet, it felt like we had the place to ourselves in the downstairs bedroom. The house/our bedroom was kept very clean and was more than welcoming.
The next time we are looking for somewhere to stay in the the area, we would certainly ask to stay at Sara’s place again.
Sara was most welcoming and friendly, her home charming, our room comfortable and clean. We loved the option of using her fabulous outdoor shower and having a wonderful lunch at the nearby harbor. An easy distance from beautiful Nauset Beach, Chatham, and Provincetown for whale watching.
cute house with tons of character right off the main road in harwich. it turned out to be the perfect base camp for our weekend trip while exploring various parts of the cape. all amenities were present and we loved the firepit, hammock and shower outdoors! sara was accommodating and super helpful in pointing us to nearby points of interest. we really enjoyed our stay and would come back next chance we get!
