Description

Plan a summer getaway to a breathtaking post-and-beam home on 3 very private wooded acres – with 250 feet of frontage on the Cape's largest freshwater pond. Large level backyard abuts our private sandy beach - providing hours of fun for kids and adults. Swim, boat, fish, … relax.

The open-concept first floor includes many custom amenities … airy 10-foot ceilings, hundreds of books, gourmet kitchen with double ovens & gas range, a large dining area, great room with a gorgeous granite fireplace, and a cozy den. Pond views are everywhere … out the 8' tall French doors in the great room, den, and MBR, which lead to a large roofed porch – where you can have morning coffee and take in views & spectacular sunsets.

Up the hand-made oak paneled curved stairway, you'll find more water views, a second MBR with bath, two more spacious bedrooms, a loft seating/reading area and a bath w/Jacuzzi. Start the day on the porch with your coffee, and visit with our goldfinches and hummingbirds. If you must, you can get connected via high-speed internet access - our wireless router allows you to ''work'' from the porch as well as the rest of the house.

Later on, relax on our beach, and take a paddle in our little yellow Keowee kayak or Yak board. Swim out to our raft - the water is not only clear and inviting, it's normally much warmer than the ocean. Borrow a fishing rod (kids don't need a license) and catch a small-mouthed bass or perch. Guests have reported lots of good fishing every year. (You don't need a fancy bass boat for fishing success on our pond! We have a great photo of a happy five year old holding his 17 inch smallmouth bass along with his plastic Bart Simpson fishing rod.)

We'll leave some floats for the kids (including the adult variety) along with the beach chairs and toys in the boathouse.

The view has to be seen to be appreciated. Gorgeous sunsets over the water are quite common. From the beach, the porch, and the house look out over miles of shoreline with almost no visible houses. Just minutes from salt water, yet the feel of a secluded New Hampshire lake.

When you can tear yourself away from Long Pond, enjoy Harwich’s beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches (four miles south) or the Brewster flats on Cape Cod Bay (4 miles north). Head to the National Seashore (20 minutes by car). Want to get out to sea? Take a day trip to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard; or a whale watch out of Barnstable or P'town. The bike path is nearby, too. We’ll give you lots of ideas for restaurants, beaches, shopping and excursions. Shop for antiques, go to a play, sample cuisine from fried clams to exquisite formal meals. Or, you may find that the charm of Long Pond is all you need to make your vacation complete!

See some comments our guests have left in the guest book:

''Wow! Time slows down and expands here at Camp Long Pond! Your home is beautiful and a perfect place to relax and enjoy friends and family. Thank you for opening up this magical place to guests!''

“We must say how much we enjoyed sitting down with a cup of coffee out on the patio and watching all the birds.”

“It is kind of difficult to go out to eat with such a great kitchen in the house but we managed to on a few occasions.” (We provide our recommendations for eating out, and the guest book contains many additional restaurant suggestions from our guests.)

“What a week! Thank you for making our first experience on Cape Cod such a fabulous one. Your home is beautiful and very cozy; the view of the lake from almost every room is spectacular, most mornings it was hard to leave the house!” (Guests from FL and NY)

''We had a wonderful week at this lovely spot! The home is beautiful and so well equipped. We just loved everything!'' (Los Angeles)

''We had a lovely week. The best vacation we have had in a long, long time.
a. We paddled in the canoe a lot, to the public beach.
b. We went to the raft a lot and jumped off.
c. We saw the old brown bass that hangs out near the raft.
d. We rode the bike trail.
e. We went to the gocart track.
f. We will remember this vacation for a long time to come as one of the happiest we have had.''

And from some repeat guests:

''Another GREAT two weeks on Long Pond. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your house. We love it here!''

''Another great week in the Long Pond House:
a. New activities for the year: biking on the rail trail, seal watch from Harwichport, Provincetown, the raft!
b. Repeat highlights from last year: kayaking in Long Pond; Nauset Beach, Mayflower Beach, Skaket beach; kite flying, grilling on the porch''

We love reading the guest book each week when we come to get the house ready for our next arrival. Our family looks forward to welcoming you to our home - contact us soon!

Peaceful!!

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful rental the first week in June. Close friends of the family were having a wedding in the area and this was a perfect place for a big group of us to stay....so open and roomy. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best but, this home was so comfortable and relaxing with beautiful views of the lake that we made the best of it enjoying indoor games and food and drink with family and friends .... Kris and Dave could not have been nicer or more accommodating to us. There wasn't anything they hadn't thought of to make our stay better!! show more show less

In the summers we have rented a few weeks on a rather inconsistent schedule. We make every effort to meet our guests, and have developed many good relationships that have spanned many years.

What is special about this property?
We built our post and beam home with the intention to live in it year round. Originally the land had been divided into two waterfront lots, but we wanted to place in the 'woods', so we joined the lots.
On Long Pond our land is unusual in that there is a level, relatively wide open, and flat lawn on the waterfront. Normally this is an ideal spot for Frisbee or wiffle ball, as well as the handful of weddings we've held over the years.
The orientation provide an amazing view of sunsets over the water, especially from the beach.
