Description

Description

NEW for 2020 !!I Major tech upgrades at the house: there is a new 55'' SONY OLED TV in the living room, a new 42'' flat screen TV in the family room and 32'' flat screen TVs in the master and lower level bedrooms as well, ALL linked to a Comcast Infinity X1 system. There is also a new, more powerful wireless router for better wi-fi connections throughout the house.

RENOVATIONS include central air-conditioning, new kitchen appliances, addition of full bath on lower level (for a total of 4 bathrooms) new interior painting, lighting and window treatments, new deck furniture and lastly, for the Grillmeister in your group, a new Weber Genesis gas grill.

The house is a destination itself. The four oversized upholstered rockers in the sunroom may be your favorite place to watch the sunset over Upper Mill Pond, but the same might be said for the living room, downstairs family room or outside deck. So many places to gather without being on top of one another. After dinner send the kids down to watch their own TV or play games.

A Friday-to-Friday rental insures you’ll enjoy a full weekend for invited guests to join you. Even more importantly, not having to fight Saturday traffic getting on or off the Cape is a huge plus. Plenty of room for all; 5 bedrooms and a pull out couch can easily accommodate 12; FOUR full baths means no one has to wait around.... Linens provided (high thread-count 100% cotton sheets and towels!) Stairs across the level yard lead down to a private westward facing beach on one of the largest but most secluded sand bottomed fresh water ponds on the Cape. Incredible for swimming, sailing, kayaking and fishing(2 kayaks and life jackets provided). Explore Walker and Lower Mill Ponds which connect directly without ever needing to get in the car. Outside of trips to nearby Bay beaches, grocery store or wonderful Brewster restaurants you may not want to leave the house all week !!! Brewster is centrally located on the Cape with convenient access to quality golf, Cape Cod bike trail, shopping, Bay and Ocean beaches.

OConnell Family Vacation

Our family (3 generations) has vacationed at this house for the past 4 years and will be next year 2021 also. Our family has had an excellent experience with the house and the owner. The specifics that we want to highlight are the house is spacious, the backyard is large for family games, the spectacular view with water access and the multiple large tables for family games and eating.

The homeowner is very thoughtful by calling upon arrival to check if all is in order, if there are any questions and was quick to respond once when we had an AC question. The homeowner does at least one improvement each year and we look forward to see what he has done. The homeowner also provides information on beaches and local restaurant recommendations with pricing to assist families.

Lastly, the homeowner this provided a care package of disinfectant supplies to be used during the week. He also stated, prior to our stay the extra precautions scheduled with his cleaning crew assuring us of safe vacation. We thoroughly recommend this home for your summer vacation!

You will love the views, the quiet setting and the serene comfort

David, the owner, is very kind and helpful and the home is in such a beautiful location we fell in love with it! First off the place was clean when we arrived. We loved gathering in so many places of the home. We made good use of the owners' three kayaks and rented two SUPs from SUPfari Adventures and saw such beautiful sites of nature on the adjacent lakes to Mill Pond. Just a few strokes through a water way, and you will see Blue Herons, turtles and frogs, a family of swans, and plenty of ducks. We enjoyed the corn hole! One thoughtful item is the thermal coffee pots they keep the coffee hot. There is plenty of cookware, fridge space with two of them and glassware. The mattresses and pillows were all comfortable. We took up the recommendations of the 'house directory' for a few meals that were spot on! Thanks David for a great week we will recommend your place without reservation and will return for sure. show more show less

Comfortable Home with Lots of Space and a Great Little Beach

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this lovely Brewster home. There is plenty of room and the house was very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have plenty of bathrooms with large, comfortable beds. The pond was clean and beach access was easy. There is a great view of Upper Mill Pond from the sunroom. The owner is very nice and very attentive to the needs of the tenants. The Friday to Friday rental period worked out well as the traffic was less congested than the usual Saturday weekly rental period. I wish we could have stayed for longer than one week! show more show less

Great for multi-generational family rental

House is perfect for a multi-generational family gathering. We were two families with teenage kids and grandparents who all had a really great time. Grandparents did well with the first floor living. And the two families had plenty of shared space as well as alone space - one took the second floor and the other took the lower level suite.

Our favorite hangout spots were the glass enclosed sun room and the back deck. Favorite for the kids - rented a sailboat for the week and spent a ton of time in the kayaks exploring the ponds nooks and crannies.

Kitchen well stocked with everything you will need for the week.

"Home" away from home

Our family of 11, ranging in age from 5 to 65, has been coming to the house since before some of our grandchildren were born. All four of them now look forward to our week on the Cape. Last summer, I was thrilled when our oldest (10) arrived at the house calling out, "I'm home!"

The house and pond are just perfect for our active family. Kayaking from our own beach is the best, with everyone mastering the sport. Meals shared on the deck overlooking the pond at sunset are magical. Any rainy days are no problem as the house gives everyone enough privacy if they want it and enough large public rooms to play games or do crafts together. The location could not be better with both bay and ocean beaches a short drive away. The runners in our family have easy access to wooded trails from the house as well. What more can I say? We hope to continue vacationing here for many years to come. show more show less

Perfect place for our extended family of ten

My sisters, mother and I have rented this house for the past two summers and it is a perfect fit for us. There’s 10 of us including 4 young kids. We were specifically looking for a place on a pond so when the two youngest were napping, the other two kids could play in the pond.

The layout works really well for us. My mother takes the only bedroom on the first floor, which could work well for someone that can’t manage stairs well. The bathroom is just outside this bedroom in the hallway. There are 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor along with another bathroom. My sister, husband and her 2 kids take the master bedroom that has its own bathroom (2 total on the 2nd floor). Her kids are at the age where they want to be in the same room with their parents so they sleep on the floor of the master bedroom on travel mattresses.

My family sleeps in the basement. My kids tend to go to bed early and wake up early so it’s nice to be separated by two floors from my sister’s family that stays up late and sleeps in. In the basement is a large room with a pull-out couch. From there you can get to the basement storage area where there is an extra refrigerator and washer and dryer. There is a lovely bedroom with a king sized bed and a full bathroom in the basement (BTW- the linens are all very nice, not the cheap scratchy kind). There’s plenty of space in both the bedroom and the large room for our two kids to sleep on their travel mattresses.

We tend to eat most of our meals on the outside deck, which has plenty of seating for all of us. Because there are ten of us, what I like about the house is that there is plenty of space for people who want to spread out and have a little space. There’s the main living area with a TV, but then there’s also the nook with the four comfy rocking chairs. Then there’s the gazebo on the deck outside and also two chaise lounge chairs in the yard outside. The yard is a decent size and mostly flat, which is great for our kids. In the past we had rented a place that essentially had no yard for the kids to run around in so it’s great to have this space. There is a stairway down to the private beach. The length of the beach is not that long, but it hasn’t bothered us. The water is shallow, which is wonderful for the kids. It’s sandy for quite a ways out.

On the whole, we love this place. It’s a gorgeous spot with a great view of the pond. We can walk to trails and conservation land. I highly recommend staying here.

An extraordinary family vacation home and location

Our six adults and four kids from age 3 to 73 found lots of fun stuff to do. An easy bike down Great Fields Road to the Cape Cod bike path; rode it every morning. Kate's ice cream was a favorite. The sweet-salty-sweet tang of a morning pond dip, afternoon beach, then back to the pond. Lived in swim trunks, sun screen and shades. More sailing next time. We loved the gazebo; for reading, for tea time, for viewing the sunset.

Bonus: the collegiate summer baseball league! All this and a well-furnished and well-equipped place to come home to. Thank you for sharing your home and hospitality.

Lovely home, fabulous location

My family stayed at this lovely home for a week in late August. The home was well equipped, with a number of separate gathering places. Plenty of dining space, too, inside and out. The best part, though, was the incredible lake frontage, which offers fabulous views from the house, warm water perfect for swimming and terrific kayaks. It is also conveniently located in Brewster, close to restaurants, shops and the bay beaches. It is also a very private spot. Highly recommend it for a large family gathering. show more show less

We have been vacationing in Brewster, MA(one of our favorite towns on all of Cape Cod) for the past 6 summers and have finally found the vacation property that we'd love to return to again and again! The pictures are an accurate reflection of this clean and well equipped home. We enjoyed the kayaks and the proximity to Paine's Creek Beach. This home could easily be shared by 2 families. We are looking forward to returning next summer!

By now you should have received our deposit and reservation for a week in July, 2013. How could we not return to that great house on Upper Mill Pond. Our extended family….11 people including 7 adults and four children had the greatest week, making full use of all the house and location had to offer. The pond was terrific and lakefront made it easy to boat, swim and just play in the water, with no need to leave the property unless we wanted more to explore. The bay and the ocean were minutes away, and those that cared to, took full advantage of our proximity to both, as well as an easy ride up to Nickerson State Park for all the park had to offer..
The best though, was the house. Enough privacy for 3 families, yet enough group space for all of us to enjoy each other’s company. We cooked and ate “in” just about every night. As the unofficial barbecue chef I appreciated the full size plus grill; better than my Weber at home. We ate out on the deck every night and we fed friends visiting for the day from Eastham) at one improvised table on the deck……with room to spare. My friends were duly impressed and were very happy to hear we will be back next July. Can you blame them? The kitchen was fully stocked and made food prep for the gang a breeze. The extra refrigerator allowed us to keep the everything we needed in the ready.
We could not have asked for more. Looking forward to our stay next summer.

I grew up in New York but my parents began taking my sister and me on summer vacations to the Cape from the time I was nine. It was then and still remains one of the most magical and extraordinary places on the planet. Walking out on the Bay flats at sunset, standing atop the dunes before descending to any of the pristine Atlantic beaches from Orleans to Provincetown and, most special for me, stepping into a crystal clear sand bottomed fresh water pond- I can't think of anyplace with such a wonderful variety of locations at hand. As I grew into adulthood I kept coming back to the Cape as often as possible, always looking to rent a house on one of the unique sand bottomed ponds. Then, in the summer of 2008, the owners of this Brewster pond house decided to sell, the same summer I was renting there for 2 weeks. In spite of the timing coinciding with a financial crisis, I never gave it a 2nd thought; I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time and fulfilled a lifetime dream in acquiring the house. I promise you Upper Mill Pond is one of the best kept secrets on the Cape! As crowded as the Cape gets over the summer, you will neither hear any traffic nor compete for your own private beach on the pond.

What is special about this property?
Upper Mill Pond is one of the few sizeable SANDY BOTTOMED ponds on the Cape (almost 2 miles long) perfect for sailing, kayaking and fishing. It also connects to 2 other ponds (Walker's Pond and Lower Mill Pond) allowing for exploration and variety. The house is located on the east side of the pond so there are glorious sunsets from the house, deck and private beach.
The layout of the house provides different gathering rooms: living room, sun room, family room, deck, etc. where you can watch TV, send the kids downstairs to play games, read quietly or sit and talk without being on top of one another.


What is special about your town?
The "town" of Brewster runs along the north shore of the Cape straddling Route 6A. In fact, there is no town center. Far less commercialized than the south shore along Route 28- way less congestion yet everything is easily within reach (20 minute car rides to Hyannis or Orleans, 30 minutes to Nauset Beach on the Atlantic, 10 minutes to an access point of the Cape "Rail Trail" for biking. The "Flats" of Massachusetts Bay run the length of the north shore; at low tide you can walk out over a mile along the exposed sand- just be mindful of the turning tide which can come in faster than you might imagine. You'll want to catch sunsets at the bay beach (though they are pretty spectacular from the deck at the house as well!) and, if you're lucky, if low tide coincides with sunset you're in for an even more special sight. Brewster also boasts of some outstanding restaurants, most notably Chillingworth's and The
