Drive east on Highway 28—a light spring rain pitter-pattering on your windshield, or perhaps the road lit up with vibrant fall New England foliage—until you cross Bass River, and you’re in West Dennis, Massachusetts. New England Vacation Rentals offers a few properties in this small town—read below to see if it’s the right spot for you.

Why Here?

West Dennis, MA lies on the southern side of Cape Cod, which means it shares a lot of positive traits with the rest of the towns on the cape. The town lies right alongside the coast, meaning you’re never more than a stone’s-throw away from the scent of the surf and the sound of the waves. An extra plus is that the seafood is super-fresh: try out the lobster and clam chowder that make New England famous across the county. Whether it’s Spring Break, summer vacation, or a quiet fall getaway, the area’s climate is welcoming, with invigorating springs, mild summers, and brisk autumns.

Additionally, West Dennis Cape Cod offers a few points of interest that other towns don’t. West Dennis Beach is a mile-long, wheel chair-accessible beach whose conditions make it ideal for kite-flying and windsurfing. Bass River is another point of interest. Bass River Kayaks, Cruises, and Paddleboards rent out just what you need to enjoy yourself on the river, while Starfish Bass River Cruises is a relaxing and informative way to spend half of an afternoon. There are also several shops with handmade items that make perfect souvenirs: A Touch of Glass, The Fire Bell, and Cinnamon Sticks & Candlewicks, to name a few.
