Description

This Eastham house is ideally located on a private road on spring-fed Herring Pond, a trout-stocked pond that is wonderful for swimming and watching the sunset and herons. Take a 1 mile bike ride or walk to First Encounter Beach (bayside); or a 2.3 mile ride to the ocean beaches. The extensive Cape Cod bike trail is just steps away from the house. Bike 3 miles on the bike path to Orleans center for ice cream.

The house includes large common areas, a finished basement, and plenty of bedrooms (7) to make this an ideal location for a family gathering or retreat. Kayaks and sailboats for experienced users. Free WIFI and linens included.

Herring pond is a clean, spring-fed pond that is quiet with no motorized boats. There is a PRIVATE/neighborhood sand beach right at the edge of our property, and a private dock. Nearby are several other kettle ponds, one with an enclosed playground. (Long Pond.) The CC Rail Trail (bike path) stretches for miles. You can walk to Eastham's historic windmill green, and tour the functioning windmill. Enjoy free concerts there in the summer. Provincetown is about 30 miles away. Summer theater for adults and kids is vibrant in Wellfleet next door. At nearby Salt Pond Visitor's Center sign up for walking tours, orienteering, clamming, and more. Also, the Wellfleet Bay Audobon Sanctuary is 4 miles away and shouldn't be missed. Don't forget one of the last Drive-In movies in the country is a few miles down the road.

Other Activities: use of our kayaks and Sunfish sailboats for experienced sailors.

Note: I am new to this site but have been renting our home every summer since 2009. I can give you references if needed.

Great location for large or extended family!!

This is a wonderful property! The owner was friendly and easy to get in touch with and responded to questions in a timely manner. The large, Cape style house was inviting, and when we drove up to it, it screamed "vacation" and I felt immediately relaxed! It is located on a dead-end private road so it was quiet with minimal traffic.

The property sits on a pond and offers all the toys you could imagine for the water (SUPs, kayaks, canoes, rowboat, sunfish, as well as a variety of tubes, flotation devices and noodles). True, some of the flotation devices had seen better days, but that happens. There were also plenty of life vests in a variety of sizes. There was a BBQ grill and plenty of outdoor seating. A fire pit was located on the far side of the yard and ample lawn chairs and two hammocks were available for lounging. My only complaint about the outdoor area was the invasion of Canadian geese that arrived when we were out during the day. We didn't see them wandering on the lawn, but they let their presence be known via droppings on the grass, in the water entering the pond and on a nearby floating dock. I know it's nature, but it was kind of a nuisance. It didn't stop us from swimming in the water, but most of us entered the pond by walking to the end of the dock and jumping in instead of wading in from shore.

The house itself had many rooms and bathrooms for large groups---I never had to wait for a shower! The rooms had plenty of space and bedding and if you stay in one of the rooms facing the pond, open the window at night for a heavenly summer evening breeze. I slept like a baby! There was plenty of room to spread out with lots of little nooks and balconies for privacy or for small or large group togetherness. The kitchen area is better if there's only a small group preparing meals. Our family takes turns cooking for one another and with this kitchen that worked out best.

The property owner provided a variety of bikes for use if you happened to need one. There were also many toys for the yard (balls, frisbees, etc.) and this was great on days we just chilled at the house. There are also books and board games available if needed.

The BEST part about this house, in my humble opinion, was the location :) On top of being on the pond, we were very close to the walking/biking CC Rail Trail, and biking/walking distance to First Encounter Beach for bay swimming AND a beautiful trail ride to CC National Seashore Coast Guard Beach!! No more paying for the beach, waiting for the shuttle, getting sand in your car, etc. It was amazing and even our youngest family member, my 8 year old nephew could do the bike ride. In addition, a small park, convenience store and a few local restaurants are nearby the house.

This was a fantastic choice for our family! We would recommend staying here and will likely book another week this summer!

Favorite Vacation Spot

Large comfortable home in an outstanding location. This house nicely accommodates our family of fourteen (grandparents to toddlers and every age in between). There is much to do right on this lakefront property (swimming, kayaks, paddle boards, biking, hiking and fishing). Also, a large back yard for swings, games, cook-outs and ready access to the Cape Cod bike trail). This location also provides easy access to the bay and ocean beaches as well as other wonderful Cape Cod activities. My personal favorite activity (as Papa) was to teach the grandkids to fish as well as catching a dozen or so nice bass from the dock.
We have rented this property three times in the last five summers and plan to come back again soon.
This note left from our nine year old granddaughter to the property owner summarizes our feelings about this property. “Dear Michelle, Thank you for letting us use your paddle boards and kayaks. We love it here and hope we can come again. Papa fished every day from the dock. Bria”
