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.
