Scrupulously clean with nice yard

Neighborhood was quiet and property was well maintained inside and out. Good water pressure in the shower and well functioning wall air conditioners and appliances. Sunny and bright with the kitchen skylight. Good sized closets in 2 of the bedrooms. Bedrooms were a good size. Grill worked well and patio with stone fire pit was comfortable and pleasant. It was mice having extra umbrellas available when extended family arrived. Good amount of cabinet space. The private bedroom/bath might not be good for some with disabilities as there was minimal space to get in the bed, and the sink is so close to the toilet that one could bump their head getting up; just be careful. Beds were a little too soft for my bad back. Stairs to pond were rather steep but that probably cannot be helped. Close to main roads and Garding Beach. Overall a very pleasant place to stay. Thank you very much. show more show less

Our stay at this lovely home

This house was lovely and everything we needed was provided. The back yard was wonderful and where our family spent most of their time when not out & about. There were bikes in the garage for use on the Rail Trail which was very close to the neighborhood, and the access to Long Pond was a short walk from the house. We enjoyed our stay!

Simply awesome

Jean was a delight to work with and their home had everything that we could have thought we needed. The games were played by our children and my sister's children, marshmallows were roasted, walks were had, several bicycle trips were taken and our amateur attempt at canoeing was great as well. The place was clean, with such wonderful amenities - we were comfortable with 4 adults and 4 kids - every person had their own bed. We will definitely look to return! Thank you to the homeowners for letting us rent their home! show more show less

The Perfect Spot

Thank you for providing such a perfect spot for our "girls" vacation! Being so close to the bike/walking trail and the lake (with your canoe) made enjoying our time together so much easier. Many hours were spend around your kitchen table cooking fabulous meals, talking and laughing - of course, laughing! The fire pit brought hours of entertainment, and the outside shower was delightful. We really enjoyed your house and look forward to a time when we can return.

We had a fantastic vacation! The location of your home was perfect! The close proximity to the Bike Trail and the great ponds was one of my favorite things. We enjoyed the brand new outdoor shower and fire pit immensely! We picnicked on a Wellfeet beach and enjoyed music on the port. Thank you for putting so much through into your guests.

Sincerely,

Great Vacation

This rental has everything you will need and more for a great vacation! The house is bright and extremely clean. The big backyard and fire pit provided hours of outdoor time for the whole family. The location of the house is ideal for day trips anywhere on the Cape and the convenience of the bike path is perfect. It was so nice not having to pile all the kids and bikes in the car. The outdoor shower was a perfect ending to a long day at the beach. We fell in love with Harwich and the Long Pond area. show more show less

Hi Norma Jean,
Thanks for your note. We had a wonderful time at your house. Your hospitality and responsiveness was very much appreciated. As of now, I can't think of anything to improve the house.

My wife and I took the bikes out on the rail trail and that was great. We really appreciated that since her bike had been stolen the night before out of our bike room at our condo building and mine had been vandalized to the point where it was unride-able. We ride bikes back home a lot so it was a pleasure to have nice bikes to ride on the trail. Thank you so much for that. Also, the fire pit was a big hit for us. It was nice to sit by that fire and have it keep the bugs away. Finally, the air conditioners were a huge hit for us. Given the heat and humidity, it made it a pleasure to step back into the house after the beach or when we turned in for the night. Very nice.

All in all, we really enjoyed your house. Thanks again for everything!

Hidden Gem

This property is a hidden GEM. Right off route 6, you can see Long Pond from the end of the driveway. I only wished the weather was warmer so we could have used the lake beach area. We did spend an afternoon cycling the bike trail, which was 1 street away. All the Cape amenities are at your fingertips from this property.

As we entered the house, it felt like home. The property has everything you'd ever need for a week's stay and maybe more. The owners have taken great pride in this home, and the recent work in the yard shows that for years to come, this will be a great place to stay, either for a weekend or a week! show more show less

Hello! My name is Norma Jean and I vacationed at the Cape for many years before becoming a homeowner in Harwich. We rented many homes previously and I had a good idea of what I appreciated in a vacation rental. My aim has always been to create a home where an extended family, or maybe 2 families could vacation together and enjoy their families without stress. Many renters travel a good distance to explore the Cape so I do my best to make sure there isn't anything a family would need and not find at my summer house. Pure 100% clean linens are provided for every guest. Just bring yourselves and your swim suits!

What is special about this property?
I fell in love with my home after discovering Long Pond for the first time. I had no idea a huge, crystal clear glacial lake existed on the Cape and it is truly a well kept secret. Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and very safe for families as well as central to both ends of the Cape for any kind of excursions. We have deeded access to the lake at 3 points and there is never a crowd. The water temperature is never too cold! Additionally, the home is a short walk to a safe entrance to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We are near the prettiest part of the trail as well allowing riders to pause at Seymour Pond or see a different side of Long Pond. Our family uses the very large mosquito net-enclosed gazebo every evening (absolutely necessary for sitting outside on a summer night). We also enjoy roasting marshmallows over the fire pit and walking to the tennis and basketball courts (and playground) through the back entrance of Cape Cod Tech. The location is truly perfect.

What is special about your town?
Harwich is a wonderful town providing visitors with ocean and bay beaches, a great village center and of course the charming stores and restaurants of Harwichport. Brooks Library is a winner for children in the summer with plenty of activities if the weather brings you inside. The weekly free band concerts at the town bandstand are a wonderful way to experience some old fashioned entertainment. I think the best part of our location in the Pleasant Lake area of Harwich is walking to the little Pleasant Lake general store for an ice cream. What could be better than that?
