Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time at Wanderers Rest in Dennis Port. The house was beautiful and comfortable for our family. I saw in another review a comment about the lack of a dish washer. While this is true, it did not have any impact on our vacation at all. It would be hard to come up with a negative about the property in my opinion. The communication with the owners was clear and open, they were a joy to work with.

The location was perfect close to attractions and beaches, but far enough away for peace and quiet.

We highly recommend this property.

Wanders' Rest is set in a beautiful and peaceful location with a million dollar view. The house is modern and perfectly designed to allow plenty of light into the kitchen and living areas giving a bright and pleasant feel to the home. There is a large deck both behind and on the side of the home that you can admire the view and watch the wide variety of birds that fly over the pond in addition to rabbits that hop in and out of the bushes. We enjoyed our time there immensely and highly recommend this property for anyone looking to rent in Cape Cod.

Good house on Swan Lake

  • 4 of 5

This property was very nice and updated. However, there are a few inconviences that prevent it from being exceptional. There is no closet in the master bedroom or anywhere on that side of the house. When the windows are closed the septic smell (which is normal for a septic system) is definitely noticeable. Also, there is no dishwasher, which we didn't notice when booking. This property is in mid-cape which is convienent for some things but also pretty far from a lot of stuff we wanted to do.

That being said, the beds are very comfortable as is all of the furniture. The view of the lake is beautiful and the hot tub is very relaxing! The kitchen was very well stocked and easy to cook in. It's in a very quiet area with low traffic. It's a great house for a family (they have everything you would need for kids!).

Wonderful and relaxing at wanderer's rest!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation spot for all. Had a marvelous week relaxing on at this cottage. No place better than the deck for morning coffee and bird watching as well as cocktails in the afternoon and evening. Great location for all cape activities. Enjoy!

Sisters Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate home has an exceptional waterfront view of a pond . Each time you look out, you may see a swan, a heron, a kingfisher, a cormorant, or another bird. Don't miss out on kayaking on this pond and river. The home was very well equipped for a comfortable sisters getaway for my sister and me. Yet, its location was close to shopping, movies, and dining. A day trip to Provincetown was much fun and eating the best lobster rolls in the world at Moby Dick's in Wellfleet was a real treat. The love and care the owners have put into restoring this cottage is evident throughout. You will not be disappointed at Wanderer's Rest.

Wonderful, relaxing stay on the pond

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Wanderers' Rest, which is centrally and conveniently located Mid-Cape and has been very nicely and tastefully renovated. The home was extremely well stocked, and the view off the porch overlooking the pond was extremely relaxing. The home is located on a quiet street and is extremely charming - can't wait to see how it looks once Craig and Jesse finish all of the upgrades! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us - our family had a wonderful time and can't wait to return!
