Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 8)
Laura and I live on the North Shore about 20 minutes North of Boston. We are two working professionals with two beautiful daughters. Both Laura and I came from families that would make it a tradition to plan their annual vacations on Cape Cod. We were married at the Lighthouse Inn on West Dennis Beach. The area has always been a draw for us and we were always looking for reasons to visit. That's when we decided to purchase a home in Dennisport. We are happy to share our getaway with travelers and we hope you and your family will have similar memories of the Cape that we have created. The cottage has been visited by people from around the world. Some recent visitors have traveled from Hong Kong, Canada, Denmark, England and many states throughout the US. Recently, we had a couple exchange wedding vows in our backyard.
John purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why John chose Dennis Port
Location, Location, Location! Its all about location! Fresh/Salt water lake with a river that's connected to the local beaches, being less than 2 miles from some amazing beaches on Nantucket Sound - was some of the draws to purchasing our cottage. We also love the street being located on a quiet circle - it makes it safe for walking, riding your bike and or going for a jog. The yard is quiet and tranquil with beautiful views and easy access to the water. The lake is beautiful and very quiet. The back yard over looking the water is both private and well cared for. Great for BBQ'ing, relaxing on the hammock, sitting down by the water or having dinner on the deck.
What makes this Cottage unique
Some of our favorite benefits of being on Swan Pond is access tp the lake with the canoe and Kayaks. Having the private deck with water views is rare on the Cape and its something we look forward to every time we visit. The cottage is always very clean and comfortable. Decorated with traditional Cape Cod décor, the cottage offers water views from almost every window. Swan Pond cottage is a year round cottage that is available to rent in the off season. So, if you are looking to get away and would like water views in the Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring - please consider the beautiful views from our cottage getaway. Every season on the Cape is unique, especially on Swan pond.

Thank you for a great week
Very lovely sunrise and a great home base for a wonderful week. Enjoyed the swans on swan pond! 🙂�
Our stay at 136 Indian Trail was terrific!
I've never stayed in a housekeeping cottage on the Cape that was so clean, up to date and fully stocked as this very cute house. To wake up to Swans on the pond, enjoy the quiet, go kayaking, biking, walking to start the day was perfect. The location is amazing. It's only about 5 minutes from the beach, grocery, town, shops,and many restaurants. The owners answered all of my questions promptly before the trip and during. It was a wonderful vacation alone and with my family. I will hopefully be returning next year
Thank you so much. Have a wonderful Fall Season and we hope you can visit again.
John and Laura
Nice lake front view - comfortable beds.
Thanks Julie - enjoy the rest of your summer
Great cottage on the pond
My family and I loved this house and the pond in the backyard. We used the boats almost everyday and the view is stunning. A few small improvements would make it even better (being able to remove air conditioners for more open windows, updated deck furniture), but overall we had a fantastic experience.
Glad you enjoyed our cottage for your Cape Cod vacation. We also appreciate suggestions and we agree - we now have a NEW comfy patio set for the deck. Photos' on slide. Sincerely, John and Laura
Great pondfront home!
Owners had great communication and helpful. Cute home with warm feel and a family of swans as visitors to the back yard twice a day.
We always enjoy seeing the swans. Thank You. John and Laura
On Swan Pond.
We enjoyed this little cabin on Swan Pond from 6/22-6/29/19. We had a lucky weather week and explored Hyannis, Dennis, Dennisport, Chatham, Nantucket, Wellfleet and Provincetown.
We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and walking about a mile to The Wee Packet on Depot Street for their excellent breakfast three of our seven days.
The highlights of the property are kayaking or canoeing on the pond. We took the canoe out to Nantucket Sound and back and I took 100 pictures along the way. So many ducks, geese, herons, and even a Swan family. One swan swam and then walked right up on the property and was 10 feet away. The Canoe trip was 3 hours round trip, but we also walked the beach when we got there.
We had a great time at the cabin and all over the Cape and took the steamship to Nantucket and biked our to Madaket Harbor. We also took our bikes on the Cape Cod Rail Trail to Brewster and had some great pizza.
I recommend a trip to Wellfleet Harbour for the oysters and the scenery, about 42 miles away. We also went to The Beachcomber and saw
The Cape Cod Rail Trail is only 2 miles from the cottage. Enjoy a scenic bike ride through cranberry bogs, lakes, ponds, woods and classic Cape Cod towns. Stop off in Harwich or Chatham (6-12 miles) for lunch or for experienced riders - feel free to visit Provincetown 30 miles away
