About the Owner

My great-grandfather Eugene bought this property in 1914, so I am one of the 4th generation owners. The new house was built in 2006 and is owned by several of us (grandkids and great-grandkids of Dr. Eugene Wylie- some of us shown in the attached late 1960's photo).

If you want a wonderful, peaceful vacation, this is the spot.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Scargo Lake twice now and would love to again, however the week we can make it is already booked. This vacation home is just perfect with every comfort provided by the owner. Comfort in every piece of furniture, comfort one the delightful porch, restfulness on the sweet hammock and the comfortable beds. Scargo Lake is just breathtaking and relaxing if you want to swim, watch nature or just chill. The owner is eager to please and her pride in her family's home for many years shows through in every detail in the home. I have bragged to many of many friends about having this perfect vacation spot. Can you tell? I just loved it!

Immaculate home overlooking Scargo Lake

  • 5 of 5

Scargo Bungalow is an immaculate, well equipped home in a very secluded setting overlooking Scargo lake. The swimming area is sandy with a very gradual drop off which makes it perfect for young children.

Three kayaks provided many enjoyable hours gliding along the lake. The large screened porch was the perfect gathering spot each evening. Very convenient location to Mayflower Beach and Dennis Village.

A truly magical place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at Scargo Bungalow twice so far, and we have relished every moment. The house, the lake, the atmosphere, and the lovely owner are truly unique, and all make for an incredible stay.

We love everything about this place. The house is spacious and lovely, the kitchen is large and well equipped, and the views of the lake are to die for. There’s a large screened porch, which is a blissful place for coffee in the morning, ping pong by day, or enjoying the breezes and sounds of nature in the evening.

The surroundings are nothing short of magical, with rustic paths and acres of beautiful woods. Our favorite path, of course, is the one to the lake—rustic stone steps lead straight down to a small private beach directly on sparkling Scargo Lake. We have spent countless hours at the lake, swimming and using the available kayaks. The property offers complete solitude and natural beauty; at the same time, it’s literally minutes from everything.

Marta, the owner, is delightful. Her love of the property is evident, as is her concern for guests’ comfort. She is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We had everything we needed for a perfect stay.

It’s hard to say enough about Scargo Bungalow and how much it has to offer. We’ll definitely be back to this beautiful place!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal vacation spot for either a large family or for even two families. It is an idyliic setting - private yet convenient. Close to Dennis bay beaches, but when you don't want to deal with traffic or loading everyone into the car you have your own beautiful lake, sandy beach and water sport activities. Kayaks are provided for your pleasure just steps from your door. The home is immaculate and everything you might need has been thought of. You'll wish you had discovered this Scargo Lake secret years ago.

Scargo Lake Cape House - An Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the lovely porch is spectacular. You are on a very wooded lot with beautiful mature trees. A short walk to a small private beach where you will find kayaks and a canoe. Although very secluded and private you are close to all restaurants and Cape beaches, some within minutes. The house and property are well maintained and well equipped. The owner is always available and quickly responds if there are any problems. We would highly recommend this home to our friends and family. We are repeat renters and always look forward to returning to this lovely home.
