Description

This grand waterfront home features a vast private sandy beach and huge dock on Cape Cod's largest fresh water lake, Long Pond! This location is exceptional and provides so many fun activities just outside your doorstep. It is an ideal summer vacation spot.

You will love the warm, crystal clear, sandy bottom lake for swimming, boating, fishing, or exploring around on the provided watercraft: kayaks, SUP, canoe, and sunfish sailboat. The vast sandy beach area is the perfect spot for children to play. The expansive dock is great for jumping off of, fishing off of, or simply laying on to watch the boats pass by as you take in the warm sunshine and views. If you want to bring your boat, the dock provides plenty of room for tie up, or you can use our mooring located just beyond the swimming area.

The house is located in a quiet, private, cul de sac neighborhood perfect for kids to play safely in and around the yard. And just at the end of the street, 4 houses away, is the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path. The CCRT bikepath provides the opportunity to explore the scenic beauty of Cape Cod on bikes or by foot from Dennis all the way to Provincetown. A short jog or bikeride from the house and you will pass several other lakes, cranberry bogs, salt marshes, and a variety of unique shops where you can stop for seafood, ice cream, penny candy or margaritas. If you don't want to travel with bikes, there are plenty of rental shops close by. Runners, walkers, bikers, and families with children will love the location of this home.

The home has just been completely renovated and features brand new hardwood and tile flooring, a granite and stainless kitchen, brand new bathrooms, and fresh paint from floor to ceiling in every room! The 5 bedrooms and 4 baths include brand new furnishings, beds, quilts, and furniture. The house has 3 floors of living space with plenty of room to accommodate your entire family and some guests. The open floor plan provides a grand spacious feel, and you will have plenty of room to relax and spread out. Amenities include central AC, a dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, Internet workstation, 6 flat screen televisions, 3 fireplaces, a BBQ grill, game room, and an outdoor shower.

There are 3 large sun decks each equipped with outdoor furniture for dining, lounging, and taking in the stunning panoramic views of not only Long Pond but also the spectacular sunsets over Seymour Pond!

In addition, the private sandy beach area on the waterfront is very large and is perfect for relaxing in a beach chair while enjoying the breeze off the lake. The amount of outdoor living space can not be beat.

No sun? Not problem! The entire family will have plenty of entertainment in the downstairs game area! Have a friendly family competition of ping-pong, air hockey, foosball and darts. The kids will love the playroom with large flat screen television to play the Wii games or watch sports while adults get some time to relax upstairs, far away from the excitement and laughter.

The ocean beaches, restaurants, and shopping in Harwichport are just a short drive away, as are the bayside beaches in Brewster and Dennis, well known to be the Cape's BEST beaches!

Cape Cod is a magical place. Boston magazine calls Long Pond one of New England's best lakes. You will see why when you come here. There is no place quite like it. Bring your boats, fishing poles and bikes, and come make this gorgeous dream home your place to make family memories this summer and many more to come!

It’s a great house with so much to offer

We had such a great time in the house. The second floor is really spacious with a beautiful view of the lake. There are a lot of toys in the basement. I guess the owner have boys :) my boys really enjoyed all the toys. We can relax drink coffee on the porch, watching the view while the kids play inside with all the toys. There are four boats offered by the owner that we can use. There are a lot of life jacket and sand toys in the garage. Our big group spent a whole day just on the private beach. The only drawback is that the beds are a little small. There are 8 adults and 4 young kids in our group. So we have to figure out how to best arrange the beds for each family. Anyway, we managed it. Overall, I would definitely recommend the house to anyone who wants to have a relaxing vacation, and we will come back. show more show less

Superb vacation

This house had absolutely everything you would want in a vacation home! We were a family of five, with kids ranging from ages 11 to 17. They were constantly kept busy with either fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and their favorite was the pedal boat! The location was perfect! We would definitely rent this house again!

Wonderful vacation!

We stayed the 1st week in August--the weather was nearly perfect! We needed a home large enough for our family reunion, and this was perfect. Very spacious with enough room for all--we never felt over-crowded! The home was beautiful, fully updated, with everything we needed for the week. We spent every day down by the water, never even made it over to the public beaches (no need!). The water was beautiful--both kids & adults made full use of the various boats/paddleboards, and dock. Daily bike rides to the general store were easy as access to the bike path was just down the road. The location is great for easy access to other areas of the Cape--we took day trips to P-town. Would highly recommend to any party seeking a spacious rental for their summer getaway! show more show less

Awesome property!

This was our second year in your beautiful home. Another fabulous vacation. My wife and I along with my daughter, son-in-law, and 4 granddaughters had a great time kayaking, pedal boating, biking, and just relaxing on your totally private beach. We love the view from the deck. We look forward to next year already.

Fabulous Vacation Home

This home offers so much for a fabulous vacation. Our family, which includes 8 children between 2 and 15, were overjoyed with the activities on the beachfront pond (kayaking, fishing, s'mores at the fire pit), in the house (gaming rooms) and proximity to beaches and bike paths. The renovated interior and layout are great for hanging out, and the deck provides a breathtaking view. The location is both secluded but also quickly accessible to shops restaurants, etc. The house stores beach chairs, umbrellas and toys, which makes packing much easier. On top of all this, the owner's hospitality can be felt from their responsiveness to questions, and the personal touch of their homemade house book. Highly recommend this house for a super vacation! show more show less

Wonderful Vacation Spot!

We are just back from our best Cape Cod vacation ever! This home is the perfect Cape Cod vacation spot! Long Pond is terrific for boating, swimming and paddle boarding. The dock is great for sun bathing and the beach has plenty of sun and shade. Being just steps from the house, every day is a picnic! You can ride right onto the bike path at the end of the street for terrific bike rides – morning rides for the serious cyclist and those lazy fun rides with the whole family ultimately to the beach. The bike path is also great for runs of all kinds – morning runs, easy runs, and long runs. The house is just terrific. It is very comfortable and well-equipped. Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the pond just can’t be beat. The kitchen has everything you need and together with the grill and the large dining room and outdoor deck tables allows for those great vacation meals that always create such wonderful and lasting family memories. show more show less

Perfect family vacation

What a wonderful home for our three generations vacation! We had plenty of equipment for water fun and the dock made it easy for getting in and out of the water for all ages. The beach with the fire pit was perfect for s’mores. Due to the heat wave we experienced, we spent most of our time on the beach and in the water and nobody complained about the heat. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the deck that was off the kitchen made feeding a family of twelve a snap. We could spread out to relax or meet up in the living room for board games. There was not a complaint from anyone for the entire week, just smiling faces and lots of laughter. We are all looking forward to our summer vacation next year to this Shangri-la on Long Pond. show more show less

Awesome property!

We had a wonderful vacation at your beautiful home. Having a totally private beach was a huge plus for us and the lake views from the deck were spectacular. My wife and I along with my daughter , son-in-law and 4 granddaughters had a blast , kayaking, paddle boarding, biking and of course roasting s'mores on your fire pit as Grandpa told ghost stories by the fire under the stars.

The house had everything we needed and the weather was absolutely perfect all 7 days,
We will be back. show more show less

Fabulous Family Getaway House

My wife and I arranged a family vacation with our four children (three young adults and one teenager) and three of our kids brought friends. That's a lot of adults and almost adults for one house, but even with 9 people, we never felt we were in each other's way in this gorgeous, spacious property.

With the exception of the bedroom with the bunk beds (on the third level, only enough space just for sleeping), all the other four bedrooms on the second level (street level from the front entrance) were very large, allowing for alone time, if needed. The third floor had AC and each of the second level bedrooms had a ductless wall AC unit, so everyone could sleep at their comfort temperature.

There are multiple large decks, so people could hang out together or in smaller groups, as their mood fit. There is a large table inside and also on one of the decks, so family dinners are comfortable.

The steps to the lake are right out the back door on the lower level and there's tons of privacy for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or just making Smores on the little beach.

On the one day when it rained all day, most of the kids took advantage of the game room (we brought our PS4) and there were plenty of TVs, so we had no fights over what to watch.

We were about one block from a running/biking trail, so exercise or just getting away on a walk was easy.

Enjoyed our experience

Thoroughly enjoyed our week! House and lake were perfect for what we were looking for, great Family time. Had everything we needed. Fishing off the dock was great fun, patio and grill area was great for dinners, beach was great for evening fires and talking. Overall comfort would rate an excellent. Thinking about when we can go back for a long weekend.

We fell in love with the beautiful lakes on Cape Cod years ago (2003) when we were newly married and vacationing in the area. Since that time, we have owned 3 waterfront rental properties in this area. This home, being our newest, is the dream home we always hoped for. It is a stunning place. We really love it here and think being on a lake, steps from the most scenic bike path, and 5 min to gorgeous ocean beaches, is pretty awesome. We have 2 young boys who think this area is little kid paradise. They love swimming, fishing, boating, crabbing, beach combing, biking for ice cream, and exploring all the fun just outside our front door. We have tried to equip our home for families like us. We know how fun it is to vacation with kids, but we also know that parents like to relax and kick back too. I think what makes our home unique is that you have everything you need right here. You will likely love the lake and the private beach so much that you will end up hang out here at the house way more than you thought.

What is special about this property?
The house has a great layout with an open floor plan and a ton of space for large families. You will have plenty of room to spread out and will never feel like you are on top of each other. The entire home has just been completely renovated from top to bottom, and the furnishings are all new. It is tastefully decorated with clean and modern nautical designs, and has a real beach house feel. The amount of outdoor hangout space the house offers is the best part. The home has 3 large decks all with comfy lounge chairs, and tables to set your drink on. There is also a huge sandy beach for kids to play, a giant dock for doing cannonballs off of, and the huge Lake -Long Pond- where you can paddle around by kayak, and explore. If by chance you get a rainy day, the house has a downstairs play room with ping pong, air hockey, foosball, darts, wii games, and plenty of indoor fun to keep you entertained.

What is special about your town?
The home is located in Harwich, waterfront on Cape Cod's largest lake, and steps from the bike path. In addition we are walking distance to Seymour Pond and Hinkley Pond two other great lakes that wrap around the bike trail in this unique section of North Harwich. If you like the bay side beaches we are a short drive to Brewster and Dennis where the beaches are phenomenal at low tide. The ocean beaches in Harwichport are also just a 5 min drive. There are tons of great restaurants close by, as well as mini golf, ice cream, and all sorts of fun vacation spots to visit. Bring your bikes and sneakers so you can explore the bike path. A short ride down the path in either direction will bring you past beautiful cranberry bogs, and lots of fun stop offs for penny candy, or snacks. If you have a boat or 2 boats feel free to bring them also. we have a mooring, and a dock for tie up, and you will love boating, water skiing, or tubing around Long Pond. It is a boater's paradise.
