Description

Description

Situated right on Nye Pond and within easy walking distance of downtown Falmouth, this cottage offers the best of both worlds - a quiet, residential location but within easy reach of all facilities, including a sandy beach.
Large yard with plenty of room to play ball and soccer, fresh water fishing and kayaking from your own spacious backyard and enjoy sunset reflections and cool breezes from the large enclosed screen porch overlooking the pond.
On the second floor are two bedrooms one with a king bed and twin and the second is a queen and a twin
Just minutes from the Shining Sea bike path as well as the ferry service to Martha's Vineyard and just around the corner is the Cape Cod League baseball field where you can take in a game or two during your stay. A little over a mile away is Surf Drive beach with wonderful views of Martha's Vineyard, which you can walk to along a shaded pavement. Enjoyed by many guests this past fall and winter seasons were the work stations. One in the LR with a very large wooden office desk and the second one is the table in the DR High speed internet

Inside, the cottage is light, airy and spacious with air conditioning units in the bedrooms for comfortable sleeping on hot summer nights. The delightful and friendly...owner lives in the adjoining property and, although very unobtrusive, she is on hand to give any advice or information on the surrounding area.

However, good privacy is ensured and this property makes an ideal base for one or two couples or a family looking for a beach with a good choice of restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Please note rates do not include the one-time $100 cleaning fee. If you decide to rent I would email you a lease you would sign it enclose a check for half of the total and mail the balance due one month before you are do in.

    Wonderful place!

    We've been coming to Falmouth for years but our old place was shuttered during the pandemic. We chose this location because of the pond in the back yard and its proximity to town. But that PORCH was an unexpected bonus! Wonderful space, views, clean house, easy walking to town but quiet on the pond. Host helpful but unobtrusive -- ask her about the shortcut on the nature trail behind the school! Definitely returning again.

    Recommend House with Pond- Off Peak Flexation

    Who? Host was super friendly, kind and thoughtful.
    What? Two bedroom house with very nice sun room , access to grill and enjoy pond for kayak and paddleboating.
    Where? The house location is super convenient to beaches, inner harbor, groceries and restaurants.
    When? Off peak getaway to work from home and virtual school but experience vacation during uncertain times.

    Our family loved the backyard and pond to catch small mouth bass, kayak and paddle boat. The pond is quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Son used the large enclosed back porch to hang out and do his virtual school. There was a little something for all family members. We did not want to leave the serenity.

    The owner is great at sharing her home and knowledge about the cape cod overall and the local bakery.

    Strongly recommend this house and pond to get away. Do imagine the area and most of cape being overcrowded at peak times. The weather was very good for us.

    Thank you very much for your hospitality!! We hope to see you next year some time.

    Perfect Vacation Rental

    This Falmouth vacation rental was absolutely perfect for our family. It is situated on a secluded pond, so the backyard is quiet, peaceful, and picturesque. We used the large enclosed back porch to hang out and catch-up on family news. We loved that we could walk or ride our bicycles to a marina, stores and restaurants, all within one mile of the cottage; and it is only 1.5 miles to Cape Cod's beautiful Shining Sea Bikeway. The owner is a delightful person willing to share her wealth of knowledge about the history of the area and answer any questions we had. show more show less

    Wonderful, relaxing vacation

    We had a very relaxing vacation at this well kept home, situated right on a beautiful pond. Enjoyed mornings on the screened in porch (view of the pond) with coffee and evenings on the porch as well with board games. We didn't need to go anywhere with kayaking and fishing on the pond, where our grandson caught his first fish! An easy stroll to the downtown area, and close to the bike path that took us along a beautiful, scenic route to Woods Hole. Beaches were close by as well, a week is not enough time to explore all of the opportunities. Perfect, quiet, peaceful location yet close to everything. Very helpful owner, house had everything we needed. show more show less

    Sandi and Bill were an owner's dream Three generations enjoyed the vacation. It was a joy to watch. My house was left in such a go order. It was hard to believe that the family had stayed. Anytime the family is welcomed. Sincerely, Ann

    Ann is very friendly, thoughtful and knowledgeable. Easy walk/bike ride to the village (great French bakery), general shopping and to Vineyard ferries. Can catch a trolley to Woods Hole (recommended, as parking there is extremely difficult). Lovely, relaxing on the sun porch with a view of the pond or canoeing and using the paddle boat when feeling energetic.

    Excellent location

    We enjoyed staying at this cottage with a lovely pond in the back. It was peaceful yet very close to the hustle and bustle of route 28. Within a mile or so there are so many restaurants and stores so you could enjoy the immediate area and never have to drive - there is even a cheap shuttle bus service to Woods Hole. There are a few extras with this rental - linens are provided and there are a couple of canoes and a paddleboat you can use on the lovely pond. Others have fished in the pond too. A few bunnies live close by and we saw them often. The homeowner is next door and she's a sweetheart. The large screened porch out back is so relaxing. If you want to visit Falmouth, this is a superb location. show more show less

    Ann - Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your house. We all had such an amazing time! The guys loved the kayaks & spent most days fishing. The kids loved running around & playing with all the toys. We went to some nearby places we'd recommend to others, too...... But mostly, we just loved hanging our and grilling at the house! Maybe next year you'll be able to join us for dinner! You were wonderful and we appreciated the hospitality, advice and directions!

    The past three weeks has given this 28 year veteran of summers in Falmouth and Woods Hole a new perspective on a place that is like our second home. This beautiful setting and your perfectly appointed home - you don't miss a trick! and has given us one of the most relaxing and memorable summers that we have ever spent on the Cape.
    Thank you for everything! We are already looking forward to next summer.
