Description

Waterfront Property on beautiful Seymour Pond in Harwich. This home is perfectly situated with the lake in your backyard and the Cape Cod Rail Trail Bike path in your front yard! If you are looking for a perfect location, it does not get any better than this. This waterfront property has 100+ feet of private beach for you to enjoy right out the backdoor. Swim in the clean, sandy-bottom lake, take the provided boats out to explore the lake (kayak, tandem, canoe, and SUP board), or just relax by the water as you skip rocks, feed the ducks, and kick back and enjoy your private slice of heaven.

This is a bright, clean and tastefully decorated home. The entire house was recently renovated including all new flooring, fresh coat of paint inside and out, and new furnishings and bedding throughout including brand new mattresses, flat screen television, and tile countertop. There is also a new, enclosed private outdoor shower. Plus all the bedrooms include window A/C units which make it very comfortable for sleeping through the warmest nights of Summer.

The Rail Trail bike path is just beyond the front yard and will offer hours of entertainment for your family. Bring your bikes, or rent them once you arrive. The scenic bike trail passes by lakes, cranberry bogs, salt marshes, conservation land and much more of Cape Cod's natural scenery. Plus there are lots of great stop off spots close by where you can take a break and get ice cream, penny candy, lunch, or margaritas, etc! You can bike, walk, or jog along this protected pedestrian path for miles and miles extending all the way from Dennis to Provincetown! It is truly spectacular.

Just a short drive away are several of Cape Cod's most beautiful ocean and bay side beaches. The main street in Harwichport has great shops, restaurants and great activities for the kids like bumper boats, go karts, mini-golf, trampolines and more!

This property has so much to offer. You will love the waterfront location, soaking up the sun, cooling off in the lake, BBQ'ing with your family and friends, making s'mores over the fire and watching the amazing sunsets that occur every night over the lake. This is a perfect spot for your family's summer vacation!

Please don't hesitate to inquire with any questions!

Great time for Spring Vacation Week

We had a wonderful time in your quaint cottage by Seymour Pond. It was perfect for our needs, and access to the bike trail could not have been any easier... it's right outside your front door!!

Tom and Joy are so easy to work with, very quick to respond, and very accommodating to our needs since it was on a short notice. We will definitely consider this property again!

Great home for relaxing

We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in September. It was so peaceful. We relaxed in the hammock, read books, kayaked, BBQed, and loved the breeze off the lake. What a location! Our favorite part was the amazing sunsets. The backyard is perfect for hanging out. We hardly left the house all week, other than to go on bike rides, and out to dinner. The lake is just steps from the back door, and September proved to be the best time to visit Cape Cod. There were no crowds, and the water was warm like a bath tub. We will be back again. Thank you for sharing your special place. show more show less

Gorgeous Home

We spent the first week of summer at this adorable home. What a great way to start the summer! The house was immaculate, and had everything we could need including tons of boats and beach toys for the kids. The lake water was warm - even the grown ups swam every day. Our boys rode their bikes up and down the bike path. They liked the penny candy at Ferrettis the best. We had such a fabulous vacation with our kids. We loved that you can hear the water and feel the breeze while sitting on the family room couch. We showered outside all week, and I didn't wear anything but flip-flops for 7 straight days. Hoping that we can come back again soon! show more show less

A Perfect Spot for Relaxing

My sisters, 87 year young mom, and I had a wonderful July week at this home. We wanted a place on the bike trail that would be comfortable for Mom to hang out in while we were out riding. We got this and much more. The back yard with table, chairs, loungers, and sandy swimming area was so pleasant that we didn't even go to the beach, and we're big fans of the outside shower! Inside, living and dining areas are roomy and nicely furnished, and the kitchen is thoughtfully supplied. The location is convenient - right on the CCRT, ample parking, easy to get to, with secure storage for bikes in the shed. Tree lines shield the house from street noise. The beautiful sunset photo in this listing is from the back door. It really is this close to the water and the ducks visited daily. We definitely hope to return.

Had a Wonderful Time

Our family had a wonderful vacation at this home. It is very well kept and very comfortable. It is in a convenient location and is a short driving distance to stores and good restaurants. The pond is right outside the back door and is very clean. Our children had so much fun using the canoe and the kayak and fishing. It was also nice to feed the ducks that came up to the yard every morning. We enjoyed just relaxing outside all day. The sunset over the water was beautiful. We have stayed at several different houses on the Cape the past few years, and this was our favorite. The owners are very accommodating and easy to contact if needed. We are looking forward to going back next summer. show more show less

Perfect in every way!

Just back from a wonderful week at this property. It is just as described and really perfect in every way. Comfortable, clean and practical! The location is just gorgeous with the lake literally at the end of the garden and the bike trail just in front of the house. Close enough to beaches, restaurants and town to suit everyone. A beautiful, peaceful, healthy place to spend a vacation.

Beautiful and breezy

We had a wonderful time staying here, with the warm and clean lake right in the backyard. This lake made the greatest breezes throughout the yard and house, and is large enough to produce relaxing, ocean-like wave noises. The ducks visited every day, sometimes more than once! There are lots of large freshwater snails and mollusks in the water for the kids to find with their goggles and diving gear. The canoe/kayak/paddle board were lots of fun, and there were toys and other things to keep kids busy in the well-stocked shed and game box.

We loved being next to the public beach, and the convenience of having the bike trail steps away from the front door. There are plenty of trees and bushes between the public and the house, but if you want complete privacy, you might not like the proximity.

The decor and fittings made us feel very much at home, with a tasteful and uncluttered appeal. The outdoor shower had hot and cold water, and the washing machine and dryer were an added bonus.

Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend this rental.

This home is awesome. The lake is crystal clear, and was so nice for swimming. We loved kayaking and canoeing too. The bike path gave us something fun to do every day. It was our best Cape Cod vacation yet .

Best Location

This house is really great. We absolutely loved the gorgeous lake. It was so nice for swimming, and our kids loved fishing and paddling around in the boats. We rode bikes on the bike path every day, and loved our morning walks to the Pleasant Lake General Store to get the newspaper. Our kids confirmed that this was the best house we have ever rented.

We fell in love with the beautiful lakes on Cape Cod 12 years ago when we were newly married and vacationing in the area. Since that time, we have owned 3 waterfront rental properties in this area. This home, being our newest, is the dream home we always hoped for. It is a stunning place. We really love it here and think being on a lake, steps from the most scenic bike path, and 5 min to gorgeous ocean beaches, is pretty awesome. We have 2 young boys who think this area is little kid paradise. They love swimming, fishing, boating, crabbing, beach combing, biking for ice cream, and exploring all the fun just outside our front door. We have tried to equip our home for families like us. We know how fun it is to vacation with kids, but we also know that parents like to relax and kick back too. I think what makes our home unique is that you have everything you need right here. You will likely love the lake and the private beach so much that you will end up hang out here at the house way more than you thought.

What is special about this property?
The house has a great layout with an open floor plan and a ton of space for large families. You will have plenty of room to spread out and will never feel like you are on top of each other. The entire home has just been completely renovated from top to bottom, and the furnishings are all new. It is tastefully decorated with clean and modern nautical designs, and has a real beach house feel. The amount of outdoor hangout space the house offers is the best part. The home has 3 large decks all with comfy lounge chairs, and tables to set your drink on. There is also a huge sandy beach for kids to play, a giant dock for doing cannonballs off of, and the huge Lake -Long Pond- where you can paddle around by kayak, and explore. If by chance you get a rainy day, the house has a downstairs play room with ping pong, air hockey, foosball, darts, wii games, and plenty of indoor fun to keep you entertained.

What is special about your town?
The home is located in Harwich, waterfront on Cape Cod's largest lake, and steps from the bike path. In addition we are walking distance to Seymour Pond and Hinkley Pond two other great lakes that wrap around the bike trail in this unique section of North Harwich. If you like the bay side beaches we are a short drive to Brewster and Dennis where the beaches are phenomenal at low tide. The ocean beaches in Harwichport are also just a 5 min drive. There are tons of great restaurants close by, as well as mini golf, ice cream, and all sorts of fun vacation spots to visit. Bring your bikes and sneakers so you can explore the bike path. A short ride down the path in either direction will bring you past beautiful cranberry bogs, and lots of fun stop offs for penny candy, or snacks. If you have a boat or 2 boats feel free to bring them also. we have a mooring, and a dock for tie up, and you will love boating, water skiing, or tubing around Long Pond. It is a boater's paradise.
