This summer, enjoy your own private waterfront house in West Dennis! Just footsteps away from the Swan River, dive in for a quick dip or launch your kayak! And just 2 miles from Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking! You can actually ride from the property to the bike trail.
This 1,200 Sq Ft 2 Bedroom home with screened in sun porch and 2 decks is yours to enjoy for a very reasonable price.
Well behaved dogs allowed!
Located just off Swan River Rd, you will be on a private sand road with just a few quiet neighbors who are often not there. You will be right on the water with kayak put in. To the right of you, take a walk down the path to another water access especially great for fishing. We've caught big bass here within 15 minutes right from the shore! The Swan River snakes its way out to Nantucket Sound, a wonderful kayak out to a swimming point.
The rear of the house facing the water has a large deck with table, chairs and electric awning, ensuring you protection from the sun when desired. There is an outdoor shower, and the view is one of the best in Dennis! Fantastic sunrises and sunsets!
You are 15 minutes walking distance from the town beaches and 5 minutes drive to stores.The perfect combination of convenience and privacy!
We are located not far from the beginning of the Cape Cod Rail Trail and very close to the Dennis Town Beach and West Dennis Beach. We are walking distance from the Swan River Fish Market and Restaurant.
The house is very comfortable with views from most rooms. There are 2 skylights that let in lots of light and breeze. You will enjoy a pretty steady cross breeze through the house.
If you are a pianist, then play the 45 year old Yamaha Grand piano in the living room. Nothing like nice music on the river!
"Gem of a spot! Peaceful and private- great opportunity to unwind and connect with nature. Lots of sunlight, yet house remained cool and comfortable. Fantastic cycling along established paths safe from traffic. There's an easy paddle right from the house to great sandbar where river meets ocean - numerous seabird sightings, excellent area to swim, or take a snooze listening to the gentle rhythm of the waves. Lots of dining options, but I loved grilling on the deck. Best feature of all is the outdoor shower!"

Peaceful and convenient
"We enjoyed our stay, especially kayaking the Swan River from the backyard out to the ocean for a swim. We also spent a lot of time on the deck with coffee or a drink, and watching the hawks and waterbirds. The house was comfortable and clean, and there were only a handful of houses on the little road, so it was quiet."

Best Kept Secret!
I have been to the Cape many times and this vacation home on Swan River in West Dennis is a spectacular find. The area is quiet and easy to navigate to local stores, shops and dining. I enjoyed kayaking on Swan River right from the property over to Nantucket Sound! It was nice to walk to the local beach via a quaint walk through the local neighborhood. Dinner and wine on the back deck with a moonlight sky is a fantastic memory I hold. I awoke to the smell of coffee, the ocean air breeze and beautiful sunrises!

This was a great vacation spot for our family of four (including two children in their 20's). The house was comfortable and the location on the river made for a tranquil setting. The street was very quiet while we were there and felt secluded but was conveniently located to stores, restaurants and other amenities. We took advantage of the kayak rentals which are a short distance away. There is a small beach within walking distance but we spent our time at a larger town beach which was a short drive from the house. The swimming was great! This was our first time in West Dennis and there was quite a bit to do nearby. This is a great location if you are looking to relax and if you would like to be out and about on the Cape.

Very relaxing home on the water. Back deck was great for our morning coffee and kayaking right from our back yard was fantastic. Bird watching was also enjoyable.

We enjoyed our time very much. Two stand out aspects were the location to some nice beaches and the large wonderfuyl deck with electric awning, binoculars and great birds to watch in the Estuary!!!! Even on a hot day we could be out in the sun! Inside was fine, nothing elaborate but we didn't need elaborate. A basic kitchen, living room, table, large bathroom, and two bedrooms with pretty comfortable beds. Some appliances could be updated, but were workable, and We would have preferred regular cable TV instead of Roku, but we still had fun. All in all, it was a wonderful place and we were beyond pleased.
