    Perfect for our extended family!

    This is the third summer vacation our group has spent at the lake house...myself, my three adult kids, their spouses/significant others, and my four grand kids ages 6-10. After trying out a couple of other properties over the past 10 years, we finally found the one that we can't wait to return to every summer. The lake house is it. It suits us perfectly.

    The open living area allows us to be together and there are plenty of bedrooms and the downstairs apartment when we need our space. Susan is a very caring person and much thought has been put into providing all the amenities that a guest might need. Her reassurances as we faced possible Hurricane Henri were much appreciated.

    The property is very private and the lakefront beach is the perfect place to spend the rest of the day after mornings and lunch at the seashore. The kids had a blast on the new floating rafts. Kayaks were put to good use. The dock is a great place to watch the sunset while the fire in the beach side fire pit caps off the day. Oh, and the ducks all have names bestowed by the kids.

    What a great place to be together! Can't wait for next year!

    Great Vacation at the Lake House

    Our family has just returned from another wonderful vacation at the lake house. The house, lake and beach are all delightful. The owner, Susan, is very attentive, responsive and takes great care of the property. We recommend it highly.

    Renters beware....

    We stayed here the week of July 10 and while the listing makes it sound fabulous we had multiple issues and in the end our email to the owner was ignored and offered no compensation or apology for everything we dealt with. The house was not clean when we arrived, there was sand and dirt on the floors, under the furniture in the living room looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. There were cobwebs in multiple locations of the home and many dead and live bugs. The window sill in the basement living room was full of dead bugs. The sheets on the bed in the basement were dirty as well. There was supposed to be a floating dock but we were told, after we arrived, it had been popped the previous week by the renters, the neighbor furiously came over and informed us it happened last season and the garbage from the popped dock had been left there on the beach. When I asked about this the owner told me it had happened both times, but yet no one bothers to clean up the mess from last year? The finally brought a replacement which was not nearly as good and they left it with my 19yo daughter to install onto the buoy, we left it rolled on the beach since that was not our responsibility. There was an issue with the AC which caused the carpet in the basement bedroom to be soaking wet, they didn't notify us of the issue ahead of time even though they knew about it. They tried to clean it up but it only got worse and the basement smelled of mildew. We ended up not being able to use that bedroom and had to combine bedrooms with other guests in our party. The bed frames on multiple beds were not put together properly, on one there was a metal rod sticking out and could have caused a major injury had someone hit there leg on it, we fixed it since when it was reported to owner and photo sent she just said she knew nothing about it and did nothing to fix it. The toilet seats and shower curtains really need to be replaced, they are pretty gross looking. The issue with the AC continued and was shut off on us 2 nights before we went home leaving us with a hot house to deal with for 2 days. AC repair could not fix and they didn't get us fans to use until the night before we left and it was reluctantly done by the daughter. There were multiple times the owners daughters showed up without giving notice ahead of time and entered the property. And to top it off there is goose poop EVERYWHERE on the beach and lawn down by the water, and while I cannot blame the homeowner for where the geese go, there is no attempt to deter them and we were cleaning up poop every day just so we could use the beach. I was given excuses all week about the issues with the house but was never offered any type of compensation and my email to the owner after we arrived home was completely ignored, in fact in order to get my address to mail the deposit back (which I am still waiting on) she had someone else call and text me and wouldn't even contact me herself. I am very disappointed since we had hoped this would be a yearly destination for us but we will never return to this home. show more show less

    Owner Response:

    Let me begin by saying that as you can tell by other reviews our home is always CLEAN! And to ensure that, each guest is welcomed and walked through the house upon arrival. And the cleaning company takes photos of each room before they leave!

    The house is at the beach and there is a sand driveway, so after the first few people walk in, unless shoes are removed, there is likely to be some sand tracked in.
    As to the float, we have used a large inflatable float for several years. They are fun but unfortunately fallible! Last year we had to replace 3. This year proved to be no exception so after the guests before the guest of this review told us that their children had popped it, we try to replace it ASAP... however that was not going to be possible within their stay. So we decided to try a floating mat. They seem fun and indestructible..we'll see!

    The central ac system was working quite well but on July 10th we discovered it to be in need of a part that was causing a slow leak in the utility basement area. The part immediately was put on order and HVAC people assured us that it would be fine. My daughter did go over to check on the basement not thru the house but thru the basement bulkhead., so as not to be intrusive to the guests! When she arrived the doors to the house were open (thus the flying bugs) as well as windows WITH THE AC BLASTING and the leak had naturally worsened because the unit was being over taxed!!. After days of this, the unit did shut down! The HVAC company explained the unit now needed to be replaced due to the additional damage! Nevertheless, we extended OUR apologies for the inconvenience, and as hosts continued to remedy the situation as best we could under the circumstances by purchasing 5 large fans and delivering them.(another visit) At which time the husband of this guest assured my daughter they were all having a wonderful time!

    Through the grace of God, the hvac guys made themselves available to replace the ac the next day. I sincerely wish that it could have happened within their stay.
    As for the geese.... they visit all the properties on lake at will. To the delight of some guests and the dismay of others! If you want to discourage them don't feed them and shoo them away as they are not ferocious.

    This is a cottage...a beach cottage... it is clean and comfortable. The gardens are well maintained and so is the home. We try to serve our guests as best we can and we respond to each and every request immediately.

    This guest began being deeply disappointment by the missing inflatable float and immediately began threatening bad reviews of misrepresentation. Somethings can not be replaced instantly but apologies and efforts were made regarding each of her issues including her concerns about the cleaning by offering for the cleaners to return and redo whatever she felted needed to be done… however, she declined!!!

    She and her family and their guests all stayed for their vacation with their daughters and her husband both sharing that they were all enjoying themselves. There was no mentioned that she was really looking for a refund until she had left and wrote to me with the threat of this bad review yet again. I chose not respond to that final threat but did, in fact, return her security deposit to her even though the air conditioning issue was clearly over taxed by carelessly leaving doors and windows opened.

    We have been blessed over the 20 some years of renting this property to have made life long friendships with many of our guests. Almost all choose to come back year after year, some have even chosen have their weddings there.

    I am so sorry that she did not experience the joy that the Lake House has brought to soo many others!! I honestly can not imagine what more we could have done.

    Lovely Stay at a Lovely Lakefront Home

    Our extended family enjoyed a week at this very special property. The grounds are lovely, and it is clear that the homeowner puts great care into the upkeep of the beautiful and bountiful flowering plants. The landscaping is spectacular! We enjoyed the spacious flat grassy yard that extends down to the private beach by the lake- (Long Pond). Our large family found all that was needed in the kitchen to prepare meals to enjoy many meals together. There were so many spacious options to gather with our large group...the living room, dining room, deck, picnic tables. We look forward to a return visit to make more fond memories of summer family time at the lake. show more show less

    Great stay for large group

    We rented this home for a family vacation of 12 people: 6 adults and 6 children ages 11, 10, 9, 8, 6 & 5. The house was perfect for us. Loved the beach! The water is shallow by the beach for the smaller ones and the older kids enjoyed swimming out to the raft in deeper water to jump off. We all used the 2 kayaks and a paddle board daily. The fire-pit was a great spot by the beach that we enjoyed on several evenings - the fireworks over the lake were an added bonus! The property has lots of trees and flowers and is very private.

    The home is centrally located, close to all of the ocean-side beaches and fun activities for the kids in Harwichport. The house was able to accommodate our large group comfortably.

    Wonderful location and great memories

    Our family of 14 stayed here for a week and the location is ideal. The children ranging in ages from 15 to 7 spent endless hours in the water which was at our doorstep. The home felt like our home and Susan's attention to guests' needs is remarkable. We would highly recommend this home to anyone. Outside deck and beach area and fire pit with lots of private yard space make it a perfect retreat.

    Awesome place!

    We spent Labor Day weekend here and loved it. The house is beautiful. There is everything that you need. The backyard is huge. We played games, sat around the firepit, swam in the lake. Can't wait till next summer to come back. Thanks, Susan!!!

    Magical Get Away for the Whole Family

    This lovely home is the perfect spot to relax and unwind from the hectic hustle and bustle. Inside and out the property does not disappoint. We couldn't have been happier with everything from the lovely decorating, the plentiful towels, the space to sprawl out but also to gather; we had a week that we will not soon forget. The clear, clean, sandy beach was just what we needed. The kids brought their snorkels and masks. They found 20 golf balls in the lake. It was a dream vacation for us. I sure hope we can make it back one day. show more show less

    family fun

    This will be our sixth year at this property and we have 11 in our family group, 5 grandkids and 6 adults. The lake front fits all of our needs as all the kids are under 10 years of age. The large grass yard and sandy shallow beach are perfect for young kids, plus a dock with a row boat, kayaks and plenty of beach toys. The fire pit in the evening helps to top off the day. Sleeping accommodations are great along with plenty of bathrooms for all. The kitchen is stocked for any kind of cooking you plan on doing and the propane gas grill is plenty big outside near the deck.

    The house has central air and one of the bedrooms was not getting the air, I called the owner on the first day and she had an window air conditioner to us within an hour. What service to eliminate uncomfortable sleeping nightly. Love this place.

    WOW....who could ask for more!!!!

    My family and I have tried to book this property a number of times but it has always been booked throughout the summer season. So we took a chance and were thrilled that it was available in October. The home was exceptionally clean. The layout of the home was open and nicely appointed. We were all very comfortable. My parents, who are older, thoroughly enjoyed the lower level suite that offered some privacy or escape from all the grandchildren. As wonderful as the house was, the property was even nicer. We sat around the fire pit and shared memories under a starlit sky. Who could ask for more....and now we are looking forward to a week this coming summer. show more show less
