Mermaid's Rock makes its home in the small picturesque community of Blue Rock Heights, which is situated on the shore of the Bass River. This is a great location on Cape Cod, equally close (5 minutes by car) to the beaches on Nantucket Sound in Yarmouth off Route 28, and (approximately 5 minutes by car) to the quaint village of Dennis on the northside of Route 6A, with all its shops, restaurants and Bay side beaches.
This part of the Cape is one of the best places to kayak and we have 3 single kayaks available for your use, and a variety of adult and child-sized lifejackets. Walk from the house to the neighborhood launch where you can drop your kayak straight into the river. Bass River meanders miles to Nantucket Sound, making it the longest river on Cape Cod. Be sure to bring your bikes, or use one of the three bikes and helmets provided, as Blue Rock Heights borders the Cape Cod Rail Trail, where you can bike or walk for miles. Also nearby is Flax Pond Conservation Land for hiking.
Trailer your boat and drop it into the river. A sticker is required to leave the car in the parking lot, or pick it up on the community dock and drive it back to the house. Blue Rock Heights is conveniently surrounded by golf courses, restaurants, local ice cream shops, museums, food and gift shopping, and loads of ocean and bayside beaches.
Everything is new and modern in fully air conditioned Mermaid's Rock which was recently renovated. This vacation home exudes all the warmth of Cape Cod charm and character, and sits on a large corner lot with a spacious yard and large deck for enjoying sun-filled gatherings with a gas grill.
Airy and light-filled, the living room has a cathedral ceiling and is open to the modern kitchen and dining room with a slider that leads out to the large deck. The kitchen is very spacious, with everything sparkling and brand new.
There is a very comfortable main bedroom suite with a Queen bed that sleeps 2 with its own fully updated bathroom. The second bedroom sleeps 4, with bunk beds that sleep 3, (as it has a full bed on the bottom bunk) and a twin bed that sleeps 1. A third bedroom has a trundle day bed that sleeps 2. The second and third bedrooms share a full bath, also recently renovated.
Please note: There may be guests staying in a separate lower level unit which has its own entrance, outdoor living area and parking. There will be no access to laundry in this home.
