About our home

As you can see from the photographs, our home on Cape Cod has everything we want for the casual, relaxed lifestyle we enjoy when away from our work and responsibilities in Connecticut. When we aren't at the beach or out and about, we love to lounge on the living room couch watching movies, gather around the kitchen table for board games, read the morning paper over coffee near the bay window in the den, and observe the stars and fireflies come out as we sit talking on the deck in the evening. With our four comfortable common areas, everyone has the option to have their own personal space if they need time alone, but we always have plenty of room to be together. We have two bathrooms, and a large enclosed outside shower from which we can look at the open sky as we're freshening up after a day at the beach. As this is our second home, a non-simultaneous exchange, hospitality and varied lengths of stay are possible.

More about us

  1. We are Dean and Cyndi, retired Math and Music teachers. Since the Cape is our second home, we could do a non-simultaneous exchange, and could also discuss hospitality and varied lengths of stay. If you did not want to travel to the Cape in the summer, you'd be welcome to come in the spring or fall. We always like to arrange our exchanges in advance so we can get to know eachother to better facilitate your stay, and book more reasonably priced flights. If anyone in your family is celiac or gluten intolerant, we can accommodate their needs and offer suggestions for safe area dining. When we travel, we like to experience the culture and history of the region, spending time at historic sites and museums. We love outdoor activities, especially hiking. Since 2009 we have enjoyed many wonderful exchanges with families in Europe, Canada and the states, and would be happy to welcome you to the Cape.

Where is it?


Midway between the Canal and Provincetown, our quiet neighborhood in the Town of Dennis provides you with easy access to all Cape destinations. Bay and Sound beaches are only 7-9 minute drives from our door- pack our beach gear and have fun! The Sound's wind and surf are great for kite flying, body and windsurfing, and parasailing. The Bay's expansive stretches of sand, tide pools, and tranquil waters are ideal for children, sandcastles, kayaking, and dramatic sunsets over the water. If you prefer fresh water, sandy Scargo Lake is a 5-minute drive. Explore miles of scenery by kayak, canoe or paddleboat on the Swan and Bass Rivers. Steps from home, cruise along the bike path, or a 5-minute walk brings you to tennis and basketball courts, running track, and playground. Golfers have many courses to choose from, 2 within a 5-minute drive. Nearby nature trails traverse woods. waterways, and cranberry bogs, and tours of lighthouses, museums and historic homes transport you to earlier times. Cape Cod National Seashore and Nickerson State Park offer ranger-led programs, or take in a seal cruise or whale watch. Antique, jewelry, gift, pottery, glass, and art galleries abound. BBQ and dine on our tree-shaded deck, or sample the fare of fine local restaurants. Evenings bring sunset beach walks, plays, concerts, campfires, or Cape League Baseball. Boston, New England's largest, most lively and historic city, is only a 90-minute day trip, with Plymouth and the Mayflower en route.
