Fabulous Harwich stay
A wonderful home in a great location with terrific indoor and outside spaces for a multigenerational family of nine.
50th anniv celebration
This was the perfect spot for my brothers and our families to celebrate w my parents for their anniversary. The space was ideal especially for my dad who has some mobility issues and stairs can be a challenge. Thank you so much.
Wonderful historic home that has it all
This place is a large and well-appointed historic home that accommodated our extended family (dogs too). Location is great near park, town center, and beach. Liz is a great property manager that is more than helpful with all aspects of the rental. This top rating was earned, so I encourage you to check it out for yourself.
Thank you, Frank for this review and personal compliments, too. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Sidney Brooks House! You were wonderful guests!!
Real Antique House
We were looking for a house that could accommodate many people, and this fit the bill. This is a real antique house, so that made it very interesting. As it has been said, the stairs are very steep, so no one who is elderly would be able to make it up the stairs. The bedrooms were large, and it was nice to have the bungalow for my son's family to stay in. The property is pretty with a nice patio and herb garden. The kitchen space is tight, but very well equipped. You are across the street from Brooks park, which is a convenient location, but be aware if there is a concert in the park, you will hear the music.
Wonderful Historic Property - Great for Groups!
A group of 8 of us stayed here for a long weekend while attending a wedding nearby. (All adults in late 20s/early 30s). The property easily accommodated our group with room to spare, one of the bedrooms on the 2nd floor actually has 3 single beds. We also had a dog in our group who LOVED the yard (which is fenced in, low fence - but he wasn't bothered to jump over) and enjoyed running around while the group was hanging out outside.
For a historic home it was immaculate and well decorated, has modern bathrooms and kitchen, and a really lovely yard that has a grill and firepit. It's perfect for lounging around together during the stay and playing lawn games. This was probably the nicest VRBO I've rented in regards to how clean and comfortable it was - which is saying a lot. The beds were all fantastic and comfortable, everyone in the group commented on what a good nights sleep they got. It was pretty cool during our stay, but each room does have a window A/C for comfort - I can imagine it getting sort of hot during warmer months. One brief item to note is that the stairs from the living room to the second floor (which is the stairs you'll use since the back stairwell goes through one of the bedrooms) are pretty steep - this wasn't an issue for us and was sort of expected given the age of the home, but something to keep in mind that could affect your group.
Location was excellent, right on Main St in Harwich and it was easy to both find the property and get around. About a 5 min drive to the nearest beach and to a large variety of restaurants.
Working with Liz to book our stay was very easy and she was extremely responsive and communicative during the whole process. (Thanks Liz!)
Misc other: WiFi was fast and worked great, three of us had to work from the house one day and had zero issues connecting or staying connected. TV in the living room was used sparingly, but exists. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies and basic seasonings. There are two grills (gas) avail to use and wood for the fire-pit.
Thanks so much for your thorough and glowing review. I’ve enjoyed watching my daughter and her husband add new features to the house, namely the patio, fire pit and fencing for the outdoor space. They love this property and it shows!! So glad you all enjoyed your stay!!
Best to all,
Comfortable and quaint historic home!
What a wonderful stay we had at the Sidney Brooks house! We had some unforeseen circumstances that led us to be without a place to stay on the Cape while on an extended family vacation (six adults, a preschooler, a baby, and a dog!). We couldn't believe our luck that this home was available and we were accommodated so quickly and thoughtfully. Our request was answered within minutes, and we were even able to check in early given our circumstances. When the cable went out briefly and when we accidentally blew a fuse during our stay, the hosts handled it immediately and kindly. The house is a gorgeous historic home located in the lovely Harwich town center, across the street from a wonderful town park with access to the bike trail (and the hosts give access to a shed full of bicycles -- which we thoroughly enjoyed!). Getting to other parts of the Cape is easy, and the house is perfect for relaxing at "home" as well. We cooked, played games, hung out in the hammock and played baseball outside in the spacious yard, and enjoyed lots of family time together in comfort. The rooms are large and furnished with everything you'd need (the kitchen is small but well-stocked, minus a microwave -- understandable with old home wiring!) and the layout is nice. The stairs were a little steep for our young child (he just needed supervision) and the old floorboards had some errant nail heads -- just things to be aware of in an old house. Those are the only tiny flaws I can think of in this wonderful home. We would absolutely stay there again! We were homesick for our "home away from home" when we left!
