What a wonderful vacation home! The owners have just renovated, and they have done a great job making the house fun and comfortable. First off, the location is excellent! We hopped right off RT 151 and were there, without having to deal with all the Cape traffic through town! There is so much to do in the area, with Mashpee Commons just around the corner and down town Falmouth a straight shot down Sandwich Rd. Not to mention that the beaches are also only about 7 miles away!
The property is quite private and offers a beautiful view of the lake from the open concept living spaces downstairs, to the upper master and guest bedrooms! We love to cook and found the kitchen to be adequately supplied with brand new stainless steal appliances and granite countertops. There were two lovely dining sets (inside and out), and the couches were deep and comfy. We really enjoyed lounging on the expansive deck. I think we enjoyed every meal out there when we were at the house. Children will love swimming in the lake and playing in the big back yard. There is a nice sandy beach area to relax and play, as well as a more natural rocky area. We enjoyed fishing and kayaking each day. The water was crystal clear, no weeds or muck! Ashumet Pond is actually quite large so that we ended up getting quite a good workout while kayaking around. Our friends were even able to launch their boat at the nearby boat ramp and easily join us.
I have to admit that we were a little surprised at the rustic driveway and wooded front yard, but soon appreciated the privacy it gave in helping us to "Get Away From It All."
The owners were very responsive and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this home to families with children, couples and friends vacationing together, and even couples vacationing alone that would enjoy the extra space and privacy.
