The town of Harwich, Massachusetts is divided into several smaller villages. New England Vacation Rentals offers lovely getaways in both West and South Harwich, MA. Crossed by Highway 28, South Harwich touches the coast.

Why Here?

If you want to visit a town that really embraces small-town community life, then the town of Harwich is the place to see. Having everything you need within a 15-minute drive helps you feel closely connected to your surroundings, and the weather—invigorating in spring, calming in fall, and simply gorgeous in summer—cements your connection with nature. You or those traveling with you might have apprehensions about too quiet a life, but don’t worry: local traditions such as the Arts and Crafts festivals in summer and the Cranberry Arts and Music Festival in September keep Harwich bustling and exciting.

South Harwich Cape Cod is not only close to these wonderful events, but is also perhaps the best of the Harwich subdivisions for water activities. Red River Beach, the biggest of the Harwich beaches, is in South Harwich, and its jetties offer great places for fishing. New England’s mild summers keep the area ideal for sunbathing and jogging. If you prefer a quieter place to fish, try Skinequit Pond—not only does it offer a herring run, but the heron and osprey which call it home offer lovely scenery for your relaxing afternoon.
