Imagine living in a quaint little village where you spend you spare time swimming, boating and simply enjoying some good, old-fashioned family fun.  That’s what you’ll find in the upscale village of Harwich Port.

This seaside village includes just 1,600 residents, and for locals, simply goes by the name, “The Port”.  One of the Town of Harwich’s seven villages, Harwich Port has been around for generations.  This is the area where fisherman and seamen once made their homes even before the American Revolution.  In fact, you’ll still find the old homes of sea captains scattered up and down the streets of The Port.  They’re hard to miss, noted for their beauty and original designs.

Along with being a quiet community, Harwich Port also offers great access to

If you’re searching for a truly unique destination, consider taking a trip out to Long Pond.  Known as Cape Cod’s largest pond, Long Pond is located on the border of Brewster and Harwich and stretches more than 700 acres.  This freshwater kettle pond offers crystal clear water and a sandy bottom.  The deepest part of Long Pond is 66 feet, with an average water depth of around 23 feet.

Swimming is extremely popular in the area, with a lifeguard stationed at Long Pond between around July 4 to Labor Day, every day of the week during the morning and afternoon hours.  If you’re looking instead for some outdoor recreation that takes in some of the scenery, there is the Long Pond Circular Bicycle Route.  The route stretches about 13 miles, starting on Cape Cod

Harwich Port offers some of the best opportunities for outdoor recreation in the area.  Lounge along some of the warmest beaches of Cape Cod, cast a line or take to the water from one of the area’s three harbors.  All three offer their own unique and distinctive opportunities for residents to explore time and time again.

Saquatucket Harbor

By size alone, Saquatucket offers the most diverse opportunities.  This is the location of the Cape’s largest municipal marina.  It’s also the place where

gull pond - wellfleet ma

While the Cape Cod ocean beaches receive top billing, the Cape is also blessed with a 200+ freshwater "kettle" ponds scattered throughout the various communities.  A dip in the cool, clear waters of a cherished pond is a favorite Cape Cod memory for residents and visitors alike.  Henry David Thoreau famously visited the Wellfleet ponds in the mid-1800s, later remarking on them in "Cape Cod."   

While the National Seashore identifies 20 official ponds scattered throughout the beach forests of Wellfleet and Truro, ponds are also an appealing part of the landscape in communities such as Brewster, Harwich, and Eastham.  These unique kettles were formed as a product of the Ice Age some 15,000 years ago.  As the glacier ice melted, it left behind massive

I am pleased to announce the arrival of Cape Cod’s newest real estate website, Cape Cod Neighborhoods.  The site went live on December 5, 2014 at 7:56 PM EST.  It was a relatively brief and uneventful period of propagation after the domain name servers were updated at 7:48 PM EST.

Cape Cod Neighborhoods is a hefty entrant into the Cape Cod real estate cyberspace, weighing in at 625 pages and 623 snippets.  The proud dad has a bit of a sore wrist, tired eyes and some worn keys on his MacBook Pro as a result of the fast and furious pace of development.

Now that we are here, it is our mission to provide Cape Cod with a fresh, new way to shop for real estate.  Initially, we are featuring neighborhoods in eight Cape Cod communities including:
