Description

You’ll fall in love with this charming and spacious waterfront home with amazing views and privacy. The backyard overlooks beautiful Seymour pond (½ mile across) popular to sail boats and wind surfers. The opposite side is home to the Punkhorn parklands; 875 acres of conservation land with miles of secluded walking trails. Motorboats are not allowed on the181 acre pond so it remains natural and tranquil. A wide variety of birds use the pond for fishing and bathing providing endless entertainment and a special connection with the environment.

The property was dramatically improved in 2014 with the addition of stairs to the pond, a private dock, and beautiful landscaping. The new central AC system has independent thermostat zones for each bedroom.

The house has a large kitchen with a cathedral ceiling open to the solarium/TV room with water views and sliders to two decks. An open living/dining room with fireplace has cherry furniture and double sliders to capture the view. The first floor master suite has a marble bath with a large Jacuzzi from which you can enjoy the pond view. The upper level has a full bath and two large bedrooms with great water views. One bedroom has a queen and two twin beds. The other has a queen bed and small pullout sofa bed.
There are 3 TV's; one in the Den, the master bedroom, and in one bedroom upstairs.

The large deck is well equipped for family barbeques with a gas grill, table & chairs, umbrellas and 4 large Adirondack chairs. There are two more Adirondack chairs on the patio and two chaise lounges on the small deck.
The garage is stocked with beach chairs, coolers, and a few toys to make your days at the ocean beach more enjoyable. When you return the paver driveway provides a comfortable walk for the barefoot kids to get to the outdoor shower.
The yard has a ''MistAway'' mosquito/insect control system to minimize pests so you can enjoy evenings on the deck without heavy use of insect repellent.

The premises are well maintained and meticulously cleaned between tenants.

The house is located in a family friendly neighborhood with plenty of kids and pets but the lot is quite private on a cul-de-sac and not visible from the road.

You and your family will find many ways to enjoy this property:
• Relax in the wide arm Adirondack chairs with your morning coffee or evening beverage
• Play yard-games on the quality lawn, while enjoying the water view
• Swim from your own private dock or sit back and watch the kids swim
• Wade 100 yards along the shore to the sandy neighborhood beach
• Tan in privacy on the chaise lounges next to the outdoor shower
• Enjoy the pond view from the patio, decks, or anywhere in the backyard
• Canoe around the pond, explore the conservation land and beaches
• Take a walk in the conservation area, and bring your GPS smartphone.
• Go for a bike ride. The bike path is 5 minutes away.
• Take the kids fishing. Seymour pond is known for Bass, Pickerel, and more.
• Setup the beach chairs on the dock and enjoy an afternoon of tranquility and nature
• After all these activities you’ll probably need to take a snooze in the hammock

Use of the canoe, paddles, and life jackets is included (liability waiver required). Bikes, kayaks, and stand-up-paddleboards can be rented locally and delivered to the house.

The property is centrally located on Cape Cod in the town of Brewster so you’re never too far from any Cape activity. The bay & ocean beaches, golf, mini golf, tennis, deep sea fishing, the museum of natural history, horseback riding, shopping on 6A, and a wide variety of restaurants, are all just minutes away.

Beautiful home in an idyllic location

We loved our week at Bruce and Mary's beautiful home in Brewster, and would echo what many have already said in their reviews before ours. The spacious and well appointed home, meticulously landscaped property and views of beautiful Seymour Pond are even better than shown in the listing photos and described in the text. The setting is so beautiful, and there are so many vantage points from which to enjoy it (outdoors and inside!), it's difficult to motivate yourself to leave and enjoy the many attractions that brought you to the Cape in the first place! The home was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated, and held every possible utensil, creature comfort, small/large appliance, and beach/pond/lawn toy you could want to enhance your vacation experience. The warm welcome we received from Mary and Bruce upon our arrival set the tone for a great week - they really want you to enjoy your stay, and do a wonderful job letting you know about all of the great features of the property. Their many thoughtful personal touches were very much appreciated. The "MistAway" mosquito repellent system is remarkable - we spent a lot of time outside on the decks and around the property in both the day and evening, and never received a single bite!

The location in Brewster is great - centrally located to many great beaches, just minutes away from essentials and many restaurants and attractions, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail is less than a five-minute bike ride from the house

It rates as our family's favorite vacation rental ever, and we can't wait to return. Thank you, Mary and Bruce, for all you did to provide us with a very special week. :)

We loved our week at Mary and Bruce's home!

We can't say enough about what a great time we had at this home in Brewster. The pictures do not do this beautiful home and property justice. The grounds are impeccable. The home's open floor plan on the first floor and spacious rooms are fantastic. We loved that there is a beautiful view of the water from every room in the house. This home is fully equipped with everything you need to have fun in the water, a kitchen with anything you could ever need, and a library of books to keep any reader intrigued. They even have a hammock! Mary and Bruce were great to work with. Can't wait to go back! show more show less

What an amazing place

We have stayed in many rental properties in the Cape and in the UK and this has to be the BEST by a mile. Mary and Bruce have thought of everything and coming from the UK this was really helpful -- all linens, beach toys and beach seats, cool boxes, the list is endless.

There are so many things we loved about the house to name but a few, the lawn, the well equipped kitchen but the best of all was the pond and the canoe. hours of fun.
In fact we loved it so much we have booked to come back next summer. show more show less

The best house we ever stayed in

I can't say enough of how delighted we were to stay in such a beautiful house on a beautiful location that actually accepted our new "bassidor," Tassie. Mary keeps the house immaculate, and Bruce takes care of all things electric and groundskeeping. We have been renting on the Cape during the summer for over 20 years. This was the best vacation and the best house we ever stayed in.

Wonderful setting

Our stay was just delightful. In every little details, the house was incredibly pleasant. It was spacious, clean, luminous and practical. There were ample freshly clean linens, soap everywhere, all the required equipment for the kitchen, the lake, games for the whole family. The landscaping was impeccable, the view was spectacular, and the neighbourhood was quiet. We hope to enjoy it again soon.

Thank you!

Wonderful House

I would just echo the other reviewers in saying this is a very lovely house, in an idyllic setting, very peaceful. The house is airy and bright and it has a really homey and comfortable feel, which made us relax very quickly. For the uninitiated, 'pond' means "lake," and it's huge and stunning. There are other properties doted around it, but you can see hardly any from the house and it felt for most of the time like it was our own private lake. We swam in it every day, and paddled around it in the canoe, found a little secluded beach where the kids built a den.

The house is really well equipped to help a family have a nice holiday, including things like really good beach gear, e.g. chiller-bags, beach chairs, sun-brella, boogie boards. If you wonder about the location, yes it is a drive from Brewster and shops but I would say that realistically, if you choose Brewster there is no natural town centre anyway. It is stretched out over many miles so you'd have to drive everywhere anyway. So this location is actually good because you're as likely to go south on some days. And if you rent bikes which we did, the cycle trail comes close to the house (only a few minute cycle away), you only have to cross one main road, and on the track it's only a mile to a really good deli. This was a real bonus for us. We cycled all the way to Coast Guard Beach one day from the house. It took about 90 minutes but was a spectacular ride. Final bit of opinion/advice: if you are wondering about beaches, etc,. our experience was that Nauset Beach was the absolute best and it's not too far from this house, you drive through Orleans, which is a nice place to stop for supper.

Great family holiday

A beautiful home in a perfect setting. Peaceful and relaxing. Enjoyed a super holiday with our two sons aged 18 and 21. Seymour Pond was great for swimming and kayaking. The house was well equipped, and Mary and Bruce were very welcoming. Also had fun days out whale watching and jet skiing

Great Vacation Spot

Wife, Daughter, Granddaughter and her friend, and I stayed here for a week. The pictures on the web, great as they look, do not do justice to the property. It is absolutely great. Relaxing place. From the moment of arrival and greeting by Mary and Bruce, proud owners, giving all the needed details of house and surrounding our stay was most enjoyable. Would heartily recommend to any family wanting a peaceful stay in a lovely and very clean home.

Oasis on Cape Cod

My family had the most wonderful week in this rental home - it is the nicest property we've ever rented. And it is SO much larger than the photos depict - vast dining room & enormous 2-car garage where we were able to store our kayak. Mary keeps the home immaculate - I myself am a neat-freak, and there wasn't a speck of dirt anywhere - truly hard to find in a rental property. The misting bug spray worked wonders ... we had absolutely no issues with bugs. And Seymore Pond is just perfection - so much cleaner than most other ponds on the Cape. The only downside of this home was that the view was so gorgeous we rarely wanted to leave the house!

Mary's communication was impeccable - she really goes above and beyond to ensure her renters have a wonderful week. Tons of towels and beach chairs, the most awesome hammock which is easily strung between 2 trees in the yard, and a fully-stocked kitchen. She and Bruce greeted us upon arrival to show us around, and anytime I had a question during the week she immediately responded to my text message. We look forward to our vacation next year!

Beautiful home with wonderful serenity.

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. Ideally perched above Seymour Pond - a big body of water that feels more like a lake in scale. 180-degree majestic views of this quiet pond which sees an occasional canoe, sunfish or paddle board but no motors. Sipping coffee in the morning on an adirondack chair, feeling the soft breeze from the pond while trying not to let the view distract us from a good book was one of our favorite memories of our stay.

The house is modern, beautiful and immaculate. The outdoor shower is perfect. The association beach is a 2 minute walk away and is well maintained with a sandy bottom. The use of the house canoe provided a fun hour or so each day for our kids who loved to explore other areas of the pond. The bike trail is a 5 minute bike ride away and the many great Brewster restaurants and bay beaches are no more than 5 - 10 minutes in a car.

The owners are very nice and accommodating and provided lots of great info on the area. Just a great vacation experience.
