Our family of four stayed in this lovely cottage for a week, and it couldn't have been more perfect. My children (10 & 12) would run down to the doc each morning to fish, feed the turtles (keep an eye out for Al, a giant old turtle), and paddle boat around the pond - No devices ;-) The gardens are beautiful, the outdoor shower is dreamy, the views in every direction are serene, and the birds and bunnies are everywhere. The house is very clean, bright, light, and updated with all that you need. The location is central to everything - Chatham, Pleasant Bay, etc. Heather, the owner is wonderful, and went above and beyond for us even making sure our boys had fishing poles - Oh, and the catch and release is awesome..loads of fish. We can't wait to stay on Ryder Pond again. Thank you, Heather!
