Perfect cozy setting on the water, close to everything. Laurance and King were excellent hosts. If you're looking to visit the Cape with a dog, you've found just the spot! *Published by Mark on November 16, 2020 Weekend at Boathouse. We loved this place! Had a wonderful weekend and Larry is an extremely kind, thoughtful, and helpful host. *Published by Jamie on September 12, 2020 "We had the best week!! Loved our location and the ability to kayak and paddle board literally right outside the front door. Awesome location. Central to everything but down an old dirt road so you felt like you were on a retreat. Can’t say enough about Larry. One of the nicest people we have ever met. Very accommodating and respectful. King was a wonderful added benefit. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!" *Published by Jeff on September 7, 2020 Relaxing place, secluded and quiet. It was great to have the kayaks, paddleboard, canoe and rowboat provided. We used them all! Our dog loved the rowboat the best. Although secluded it was nearby to anything we needed. Larry (our host) couldn't have been nicer. We loved King as well. *Published by Ashley on August 27, 2020 "There is something to be said about living the simplistic life. Being able to remind you of what is important in life and what is truly needed. The Boat Loft is just that, the simple escape. Larry is one of the most kind souls we have encountered. He was there to help us when needed but gave us our space to enjoy his beautiful property. The water access, the water toys and the secluded lounge area were what we needed to escape for the week. We enjoyed being able to cook each meal, play games, have our pup with us and laugh for the entire week. We took full advantage of the water toys, especially the kayaks and the stand up paddle board. We took one day to kayak to the local beach at the mouth of the river, Larry told us about a hidden gem for pups to go to the beach and we explored Swan Island on multiple occasions, all to bring something new to see. The Boat Loft is very close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail where we ran, walked and let our daughter ride her bike each day. If you are looking to get away and escape to the simple way of living, then the Boat Loft is your getaway. We cannot say enough nice things about Larry. When we arrived he was right there to greet us. We knew he was a great person since our pup took right to him, which says a lot. He is very responsive, pleasant and helpful. We recommend visiting the Boat Loft! *Published by Ken on August 26, 2020 "Was a great spot to relax! Fabulous sunrise over the pond, great views, swans and ducks! Great having the variety of water craft to use. Laurance and King are great hosts. Just a great place to get away." *Published Nov 25, 2019 by Corey....... Laurence is so accommodating and gave us insider information that really helped us navigate what we would do throughout our trip. The property was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for for a quick getaway. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Thank you Laurence! The Boathouse Loft is a naturalist's dream, surrounded by natural beauty, a peaceful and relaxing oasis on the shores of one of Cape Cod's largest salt water lakes .....a beautiful waterfront sanctuary situated on its own private peninsula encompassed on 3 sides by water and 1 side by conservation land ....with spectacular sunrises & sunsets plus ocean access to Nantucket Sound. Yet, only minutes to great seafood restaurants, shopping, beaches and fun attractions. Vacation waterfront! Why choose a landlocked subdivision when you're on Cape Cod? Go kayaking every day with no boat rental fees. Waterfront is the difference between an ordinary and an extraordinary summer vacation. Why is the Boat House Loft such a popular Cape Cod destination? There is no sweeter place to kick off your flip flops. We offer a relaxing waterfront vacation at a reasonable price.....plus we love and cater to our happy guests! We are very dog friendly and do not charge a pet fee. With an open floor plan, the second floor Boat House Loft has a comfortable Cape Cod antique "country style" appearance, complete with a rustic open beamed ceiling in the veranda. You are the sole occupants - assuring complete privacy (the first floor is used for storage). It boasts four separate rooms, each with country blue painted floors: -The main living/sleeping accommodations -The sun filled eat-in veranda which overlooks the water on 3 sides and feels like you're on a ship's bridge -The fully applianced kitchen ~The all new bathroom with contemporary fixtures. Featured are a generously over-sized 38" neo-angle stall shower, a European-style vanity and a comfort height commode. - Well lit at night for your comfort & safety after dark ~ We provide linens and towels. ~ We offer a clothes dryer to dry & fluff-up your damp towels. A dry towel is a "must-have" while on vacation. ~ Dog friendly (well behaved dogs, with restrictions) ~ The Loft comfortably sleeps two plus one. There is a king sized bed in the bedroom and a love-seat which converts into a small futon bed in the veranda (best for a child or youth). - Climate comfort ....enjoy the open window fresh breezes off the pond with your second story elevation. During hot summer days, the Loft is fully air-conditioned. During the crisp spring and autumn days, the bedroom/living room, kitchen/veranda & bathroom have individual thermostats controlling the heat. The scenic approach to the Boat House Loft is by a private winding dirt road. At the very end of the road is a tiny enclave of homes including the Boat House and it's very private Cape Cod 'tree house' loft, perched on the second floor under pine trees. Included with the Boat House Loft is a large outdoor space - your own private yard. Great for relaxing and grilling at the water's edge. The location is ideal for the kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding or sailing enthusiast ....you have direct access to the launch area from your outdoor space. Well lit for night time usage. UNIQUE ON CAPE COD! We offer the ultimate in on-the-water value for our guests - Our fleet of watercraft has expanded - We now offer the ZRAY Ranger 400 sport row boat (available for pond use only Mid-June thru mid-September). Easily handled, take a book and a snack, and float where the wind & current takes you or relax and read while the waves gently rock you back-and-forth. What an excellent way to enjoy being on the water. Also, the "Future Beach Maui 124" stand up paddle board (pond use only), two kayaks and a canoe - all included. No boat rental fees. Paddle the kayaks and canoe on the pond or down to the ocean beach at the mouth of Swan Pond River. Naturalist's dream! Circumnavigate Swan Pond (and explore the quiet coves) in any of the watercraft. Or, use the kayaks and canoe to paddle down Swan Pond River to the ocean and South Village Beach (don't forget a beach picnic basket). The boating is some of the best on Cape Cod - two miles downstream is Nantucket Sound, with a Town of Dennis public beach at the mouth of the river. It is warm water south-side beach kissed by the Gulf Stream. The centrally located Loft is exactly 30 minutes from both the Sagamore Bridge & the Cape Cod National Seashore's Salt Pond Visitor Center (Coast Guard and Nauset Light beaches). One of the Cape Cod Rail Trail entrance points is only a ten minute bike ride away. From there, you can bike to Chatham. ~IMPORTANT ASTHMA & RESPIRATORY SENSITIVITY ADVISORY - The Boat House Loft is directly on the water and, like all waterfront properties, is subject to a beautiful morning fog & moisture laden pond winds.
