Rental near Pleasant Bay, Cape Cod, one of the most beautiful places in America

"Pleasant Bay is a place of extraordinary natural resources and beauty. Harboring 7,285 acres of saltwater at high tide, it is the largest bay contiguous to the Cape Cod National Seashore, and is bordered by the towns of Chatham, Harwich, Brewster and Orleans. The Bay's ecosystem constitutes an invaluable resource for the surrounding communities and region. From marsh to estuary, and embayment, Pleasant Bay supports an ever-adapting fount of wildlife, and is one of the most biologically diverse and productive marine habitats on the east coast of the United States."
