Blissfully quiet, serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious vacation at your Scargo Lake home. Except for the lovely sounds of the leaves rustling and the birds calling, your house was a silent - almost spiritual - place for me. For a New Yorker living in Manhattan, the silence was absolutely blissful. I love that the only motors on the lake were electric, and therefore also silent.

We had adventures every day. We three rose at dawn to watch the early-morning swimmers and fishermen on the lake as the sun was rising. We went to the Marshside for dinner one evening, and returned at 7:00 in the next morning to see the early morning mist on the marsh. We went to Sesuit Harbor, where we were lucky to be offered a short boat ride to see the magnificent sunset. We went to Chatham and watched fishermen bring in their catch and we photographed the harbor seals. We ate lunch at Hallet's in Barnstable, then went to the Harbor to buy fish for dinner. We went to Corporation and Mayflower and walked the boardwalk in Bass Hole. Of all the places we visited, I think my favorite was Chapin beach at low tide.

My sister and husband live close by in Yarmouthport, and they too loved the house and the quiet. It was wonderful to spend some time with them on the lake.

I will return!

A wonderful and relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with an excellent location. I very much enjoyed my first Cape Cod holiday with friends. The house is wonderful, spacious, clean, with a beautiful garden, and right on the lake (with lots of water toys). I fell in love with the whimsy of the garden and the pottery in the house. It was fun exploring all the unique features of the house. A true treasure that’s centrally located and close to the beach and lake access. I really enjoyed sitting on the dock at dawn and dusk, people watching during the day, and feeding the ducks. Great vacation and rental. I would recommend to friends and family.

Scargo Lake home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

We heartedly agree with the very positive comments of the previous reviewers of this Scargo Lake "home-away-from-home"! This vacation "Shangri-La" is very comfortable, being well-furnished, tastefully decorated and well-supplied. Contributing to the vacation-retreat feel is the home's setting on the lake with its large deck and its private pier.

The owner was very friendly and helpful from the get-go, giving recommendations for restaurants, beaches, etc.

If Cape Cod is part of our vacation plans in the future, we would definitely look forward to returning to this Scargo Lake retreat. Additionally, I would not hesitate recommending this home to friends that are interested in vacationing on the Cape.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We would echo the sentiments of the previous reviewers, we had an absolutely wonderful vacation. We spent more money to be on a lake and I was hoping it would be worth it and our hopes were surpassed. My four teenage children and my husband wanted to eat in each night they were so relaxed and comfortable here. The house was supplied with everything we needed. We are an outdoor family and loved being able to walk out the back slider and fish, swim, boat, paddleboard and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Mayflower and Corporation beach are both so close and sunsets are glorious at Mayflower. Coast Guard and Nauset beaches are within a half hour too. The pottery in the house is so unique to the experience. The owners were terrific and we will definitely consider returning!

Serene retreat perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house on Scargo Lake for our very first trip to the Cape. I don't know if it was perfect weather or the house but it turned out to be the best, most restorative vacation I have ever had. Our family was transformed by the stay. Everything you could possibly want is in the well-furnished house. I brought knives and pots and pans thinking I would find rental quality in the kitchen only to find that the tools provided were better than mine! I will never forget getting up each morning and toting a cup of coffee to the bench on the private dock, just steps from the back door and watching the lake transform over the course of the day. The owners kept in touch before the stay to make sure everything was perfect and then "left us alone" during the stay so we truly felt the house was ours. We plan to return every year that we can to enjoy the house, the scenery, and the tranquility of Dennis and Scargo Lake. We also saw a musical at the Cape Playhouse that we thoroughly enjoyed and loved daily afternoon trips to Mayflower beach for our saltwater swims. Dinner at "Fin" just down the street was wonderful as well.

Embracing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We happily settled into this most comfortable home. We do not recall ever renting a vacation home so

thoroughly equipped. We enjoyed the wonderful woodwork, lovely pottery, interesting artwork and, of

course, the lake about 25 feet away. The house is spacious, expensive in details, private and whisper


The house is very convenient to Corporation Beach (walkable) and all the restaurants near the Cape

Playhouse and movie theater.

If the typical Cape rental, almost always with some Walmart or thrift ship furnishings, is Gallo, this home is Grand Cru.

If another Cape vacation is in our future, we would certainly return to this "embracing retreat" and

would highly recommend it to others.
