About Laura Muir

My husband and I are the owners and managers of the property. We live nearby and are very responsive should any problems arise but if they don't we are happy that you can enjoy your vacation. I take pride in cleaning the property for each and every guest and want to know if it does not meet or exceed your expectations!!

Laura Muir purchased this house in 2002

Why Laura Muir chose Harwich - Harwichport

The house is well-furnished and roomy enough for 8 adults, whether you are here for a week of summer vacation, attending a wedding, or just getting away with friends.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen, dining area, and living room are all open and roomy, easily allowing 8 adults to be in the same area of one another without feeling in each others way. The laundry is on the same floor in its own room just off the kitchen. The house is bright all day long with the sun rising on the kitchen side and setting on the living room side. The driveway can easily accommodate multiple vehicles.

Perhaps my most perfect rental ever

  • 5 of 5

I have rented numerous times on VRBO & AiRbnb. Laura's property could possibly be the BEST selection I've ever made! I spent 4 nights in glorious Harwich, MA, traveling with my elderly mother and 14 y.o. niece. It was the final stop on our new england college-tour excursion and we needed to relax and take in the charm of Cape Cod, one of my favorite childhood vacation spots.

Laura's house so very comfortably accommodated all of us, with 3 spacious bedrooms, two nice sized bathrooms (fully stocked with an abundance of towels and toiletries). She even has an en-suite bath in the master! This was far, far more than a simple vacation home! Yes, it's equipped with everything an entire family would need to make a stellar vacation of it at the beach. Beach towels, chairs, umbrella. A full complement of kitchen amenities, which allowed us to easily steam up some gigantic lobsters we fetched while in Provincetown, just a short 40 min. drive away! Also crazy close to the national seashore - a national treasure.

We wanted for nothing at Laura's house - her furniture was beyond comfortable and the furnishings were indicative of a house you would come home to, to live at year 'round, not just as a summer rental. The house is sizable, with a large finished basement loaded up with games. We found the roominess and amenities to be out-sized and my only regret was that I couldn't stay longer than 4 nights, but I so hope I will one day again rent Laura's beautiful vacation oasis.

Yes, if you are a family or even a single person or couple, I would highly recommend you take advantage of this special property for your time in a centrally-located spot on beautiful cape cod!

Thank you Laura!

Owner's Response: We try very hard to make everyone's stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. Coming from large families, we understand the challenges of traveling and wondering how many extra, everyday items you may need to pack but don't want to take up valuable space (in the family van or on the airplane); we have tried to make this house a "bring your clothes and buy some food (have Peapdod deliver)" type of setting. It has all the basics but isn't over-furnished, thus the spacious feel. We love knowing that we can play a part in your successful vacation!

Fantastic house in a great location in Harwich

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were fantastic. Everything leading up to our stay was very easy and getting into the place was also easy. When we arrived it was spotless. It didn't feel like a rental home. We rent every year on the Cape and you always feel like you're in a rental...that you're in someone else's home. This home was great. It's perfect for a family with young children since they have everything you might need (bunk beds!, children's books, games, children's plates and cups, etc). The backyard was great with games and a (new?) outdoor shower. Large deck to dine or relax. The fact that we didn't have to pack toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc made packing so much easier.

Great Harwich location with easy access to Chatham, Harwich center, and we even drove to some beaches in Dennis and the drive wasn't bad at all.

We would definitely stay here again if we stay in Harwich!

Owner's Response: We too have stayed in vacation rentals that seem to have what I call "owner debris", you open the dresser drawers and there is no room for your own clothes and the kitchen Is full of "their" food. This home is for you to enjoy during your stay!!

Cape Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Laura Muir's house is advertised as "Clean, Bright and Spacious; Family Friendly". That description does not do it justice. Yes it is clean, bright and spacious.... but it is a lot more. All the rooms are extremely comfortable and Laura provides all the extras to make sure you will have a successful stay. Plenty of linens, dishes, glasses, pots, pans and utensils. You could not ask for more. There was even a large enough pot to steam 3 two pound lobsters which was absolutely great (both the pot and the lobsters). We were too busy to use the basement game room but we appreciated the fact that it was available. Over the short, 3 day period we were there, Laura's place definitely felt like home. One other feature that might be taken for granted is the fact that all the bedrooms and the living/family room had air conditioning. That was a very important feature as we did have 90 degree weather. Laura provides secure WIFI which was very easy to access. She also provides considerable background on neighboring restaurants and activities. In summary, it is a great place and I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again and I recommend it without reservation.
