    All Decked Out on Horsefoot Cove - Sleeps 14!

    2 Waterfront Homes on the Salt Marsh in West Dennis

    One half mile over the Bass River Bridge, in the heart of West Dennis is “All Decked Out on Horsefoot Cove” - consisting of 2 Cape Cod homes sitting side-by-side on the salt marsh offering privacy, yet minutes from everything a Cape Cod vacation near the ocean offers.

    About The Homes

    The greatest feature of this duo are the many and varied rear decks on both houses offering incredible views of the Bass River Marina and Horsefoot Cove, as well as natural wildlife in the seagrass. The exquisite nature and water views from both these homes are phenomenal. Tidal creeks and inlets create a haven in the seagrass for observing amazing riverfront wildlife such as great blue herons, osprey, white egrets, sandpipers, geese, and ducks. You will hear birds singing and owls hooting. And no day is the same, as this breathtaking scene is ever changing with the tides, creating this abundance of wildlife interest on Bass River. 

    The back of both homes and their decks are facing west with little to almost no obstructions to the view. Sit back and relax on any of the expansive rear decks and enjoy many varied ★spectacular sunsets★ over salt marsh while observing this amazing riverfront wildlife. Watch boats come and go at the Bass River Marina. The stunning sunrises and sunsets at this salt marsh never look the same way twice, making you feel like you are part of a different nature painting every day.

    Delight in life’s simple pleasures and choose to grill lunches or dinner and enjoy dining al fresco at either home on outdoor decks and patios.

    The spacious backyards are beautifully landscaped, with room to run around either yard and play games. Focus on fun: toss a frisbee or football, or enjoy a good water gun fight on either outstanding lawn by day. Twirl sparklers on the lawns at night, slurp popsicles. Enjoy drinks and good conversation while watching the sun set. Toast marshmallows in the fire pit at Seagrass

    Haven. Read a good book on one of many decks from which to choose.

    Autumn on Cape Cod

    Come explore Cape Cod’s second summer and enjoy beautiful cooler weather with milder temps – but without the crowds.  Cape Cod’s shoulder season should not be missed, with its endless shimmering ocean views contrasting against the season’s vibrant rich fall foliage and vermillion-saturated cranberry bogs. Escape the long lines and enjoy the Cape’s outdoor activities, along with some solitude.

    From a fresh lobster dinner to succulent oysters, enjoy dining al fresco on the home's many outdoor decks and patios well into the season. There is nothing quite like a beach day in autumn, where the beaches are less crowded and the ocean temps remain warm into September. As fall progresses with cooler days, bundle up for a refreshing walk along the seashore. Spend afternoons kayaking, canoeing or paddle-boarding our waters, chartering a fishing boat and engaging in some recreational fishing, going on a whale watch excursion, hiking nature trails or sailing off into some of the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen. Some of the locals consider this the best time of year on the Cape!

    For Beach Lovers

    If you’re a beach lover, West Dennis beach is close by - a mere 4 minute drive from the property. It is a mile long, beautiful, sandy, ocean beach on Nantucket Sound, where the waves smoothly and calmly hit the shore and the gulls soar overhead and the salt air tantalizes your senses. You will collect plenty of seashells here. It has plenty to do for the whole family: there's a playground, snack bar, and kite flying area, showers and many lifeguard stations, along with a large parking lot.

    South Village Beach is another fantastic nearby beach option and is a little under 2 miles from “Seagrass Haven”. It is a beautiful beach with clear refreshing water,  minimal seaweed and an abundance of shells to collect. It is also ideal for those that just love to play on the beach as the sand is very soft. The beach is large with plenty of room to spread out. The sandbar is nice and one can enjoy riding the tidal waves. South Village Beach is at the mouth of the Swan Pond River with a great current that flows at low tide, which allows for a lazy river ride. Be advised that there is no snack bar or permanent bathroom/changing facilities.

    However, if you prefer the pristine sand of the Dennis beaches on the Northside on the Cape Cod Bay, they are also easily accessible by car: Chapin Beach, Corporation Beach, Mayflower Beach should not be missed.
