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 an amazing host! We really enjoyed our stay in the Joy Room - the bed was extremely comfortable, all the necessities (towels, shampoo/conditioner/body wash) were provided, and the WiFi was great. We luckily arrived while Sara was making banana bread, and we were able to try some the next morning. Izzy and Simon were really friendly and enjoyed being petted. Sara provided us with a lot of excellent tips on dining and local attractions, as well as recommendations on where to bike (we brought our bikes). We ended up having a great time biking the Cape Cod Rail Trail to Chatham!
Thank you Sara for a wonderful weekend!
Sara was very welcoming and helpful! While only for one night we had a great easy stay!
Thank you sara for making us feel so welcome and for all your help and tips which helped to make our stay so cosy and memorable
Sara was super warm and welcoming without being at all imposing. We had a nice time chatting. The house was super cute, as were the cats! Nice comfy bed with space heater, bedroom has TV with DVD player, to retreat and snuggle up to watch a film... Great location in mid cape. A great experience!
Sara was a great and helpful host with a beautiful home in a really nice community. We'd be excited to stay here again, given the opportunity.
What a charming stay ! The Joy room was really nice. Clean, cosy and well decorated. Sara is a wonderful guest, giving us good advice for Cape activities, bar and restaurants! The organic breakfast rocked and Sara's cats are lovely. Overall a excellent Airbnb experience!
Sara was very welcoming. Although we arrived early, she let us in and everything was ready for us. The house is located near some nice restaurants en perfectly situated for a visit of the towns on Cape Cod. We loved staying with Sara en her two cats very much.
