Yeah, wareham itself isn't wonderful to live, but it's not terrible for a week. Pinehurst area isn't bad, but it is a little more densely populated. There are decent water frontages and views over there.

To be honest, If I had the same criteria as you, I'd consider renting in Plymouth. There are a lot of rentals on the ponds in Plymouth (check VRBO, Airbnb, Homeaway, etc.) which are close to Route 3 (good Cape and Boston access), have water frontage or water access, and are in quiet, pretty neighborhoods (usually pretty wooded). In the new movie "The Judge" there are some scenes filmed at cottages on ponds in Plymouth if you need an idea. You can easily access the amenities and charm of Plymouth itself as well as nearby beaches. You can also easily jump on Route 3 to Boston or Route 3 (to Route 6) to access much of the Cape.

I would suggest stopping by Falmouth, Chatham, and Provincetown if you're not beach people. Even the National Seashore (I recommend Cahoon Hollow Beach and the Beach Comber if you're not looking for JUST a beach experience) is worth a visit for the sheer natural beauty. Provincetown is worth a visit because physically it's a charming example of a seaside New England town with narrow streets, old wooden structures, a lively town center, neat wharves, great restaurants and shops, etc. The Pilgrim Monument is worth a climb to the top. P-Town is also noted for being fairly ecclectic and has a creative, vibrant atmosphere. It really is worth a stop. Chatham is cute and charming too but in a more old fashioned New England way. Falmouth is the easiest to get to of the three and has a great town center and waterfront area.

Thanks LRFOX. The main draw of the house I found on Homeaway in Wareham is that it's on the water, and the owner said dogs are definitely able to swim there. I'll definitely check out rentals in Plymouth that are pet friendly.

And I am most definitely a beach person, it's the two boobs I live with who aren't huge fans
