    The Wonderful Pond House

    Another great week at the Pond House. The house is very comfortable and homey. The view from the deck is beautiful. David caught so many fish that he lost count. We are looking forward to our week in October. Lou was the perfect host.

    Thank you Paula & Dave,

    I am happy you are enjoying your stays here at the Pond House especially when you have convinced me that it is not merely the numerous fish you have caught in the pond. You have been great tenants and show great interest and respect in your treatment of the cottage and the pond. You keep coming back, a great endorsement for how much you love coming here, thank you.

    Also, a big thank you for your effort in making the pond more accessible for future swimmers, fishermen, and boaters, that's a big help to me.

    Great Holidays!

    We stayed at the Pond House for the 6th time last November, after the reopening of the U.S.A.-Canada border.
    We found the house in perfect order as usual and even if the weather was cold at times, we went to Nauset Beach everyday to see the waves and walked with pleasure, in this wonderful setting. The view of the Pond is a pleasure, whatever the season!
    We felt most welcomed by Lou as always, and look forward to our next stay!

    Perfection

    We just returned from a much needed "idyllic" week at the pond house. All the glowing reviews are accurate. The house doesn't feel like other rental properties. It is a sweet and comfortable home. The quiet and serene quality was much needed by us busy New Yorkers. We loved being so close yet so far from town.

    Lou arranged for us to have perfect weather so we were able to take advantage of the many walking/hiking paths on the Cape. A favorite would be Fort Hill/Red Maple Trails in Eastham;
    Kent's Point Trail in Orleans has beautiful water views.

    Lou is the perfect host. We are already planning to return next year.

    Perfect vacation cottage!

    Short of being just plain redundant to the other reviews, my husband & I found Lou's cottage home to be truly perfect for us. Clean, crisp, light & airy - the cottage is appointed graciously with all you need. It's pretty too. Only gurantee Lou cannot fulfill is perfect weather ;) - which we just about lucked out on. Lou is kind and gracious, there if you need him and very respectful of leaving you alone if you don't. The kitchen was excellent for cooking, the deck is where you'll want to live. Oh, and the outdoor shower is a must, of course. The view? Perfect. This property is a gem. show more show less

    Ina & Ronnie, nice of you to speak so fondly of our Pond Hose. We make an earnest effort to provide our tenants with accommodations they will appreciate as comfortable, clean, and complete. It is especially nice to have tenants acknowledge the effort that goes into a rental that so many of our renters love. It works both ways in that you two were very caring of our property and great to have as tenants.

    Thank you for coming and please plan to come again.

    Sparkle Pond

    What a hidden gem! We have been vacationing at the Cape for 25 years and this must be the most relaxing and quiet spot we ever stayed at. Very comfortable and clean, we just had a fantastic vacation. The deck is wonderful with the beautiful sunsets, and the fishing is great, caught a lot of bass. The location is close to town but far enough away. Great walks to Nauset Beach.

    We certainly will be coming back, we are ready now. Thank you Lou, we had a great time.

    Lovely Pond Home

    We stayed at Lou's pond home for the second time and were so happy to return to this lovely rental property. The home is decorated like a real home as opposed to a sterile rental, with comfy furniture and other thoughtful amenities. We always enjoy our conversations with Lou, who is quick to respond and is a very good host.

    The location is ideal, near Nauset Beach, Crystal Lake, the bike path and all the great shops in Orleans. We will surely return again next year.

    Glorious stay at Pond House

    Everything at the Pond House was simply perfect from the glorious view of the pond to the short bike ride to beautiful Nauset Beach. The home is beautifully maintained and we loved Marie's watercolors throughout. Lou was incredibly helpful. The kitchen and bath renovations were beautifully done and the architecturally designed deck a lovely place to while away the time. The pond view was better than watching a movie. Everything you need for a relaxing cape stay! We will be back!

    Cozy comfortable cottage with beautifully designed deck

    This was our first time renting and we couldn't have been more pleased......the house was very clean, well maintained, tastefully decorated and in a beautiful neighborhood......very quiet and peaceful, great for walking, too! We especially liked the fact that it was a hop, skip and a jump to the beach and that food was easy to come by, either as takeout from numerous restaurants or from the top quality nearby grocery store, Friends. We loved it all and are already looking forward to returning next year! Of course all of this was enhanced by the perfect owner, landlord, Lou, who helped to make our stay so special.

    Charming peaceful home in Orleans with a view

    My husband, adult son and I just spent a perfect week at Lou's charming pond front property. The place was so pretty and comfortable and we instantly felt very at home. There were so many thoughtful touches, everything you could need in the kitchen, lots of helpful travel tips, local suggestions, brochures and maps, an outdoor shower, a great washer and dryer and clothes line in the basement, and a gas grill. The deck out back was the best part of all! We couldn't tear ourselves away from the view, morning, noon and evening! It was always quiet and peaceful too, yet not far from all the best Orleans has to offer, from Nauset and Skaket beaches to the shops and bike path. We couldn't recommend this place more! Lou was a perfect host, easily reachable, thoughtful and kind. We will surely be back! show more show less

    Thanks, Mona,

    Glad your family enjoyed your stay and took in the beautiful morning, noon, and evening views that you can enjoy from our great deck overlooking the pond. Thank you for making the effort to write a review. You were great tenants and hope you plan to come again.

    Thanks again,

    Absolutely Perfect

    If you are looking for a relaxing, wonderful and just perfect vacation accommodation for your Cape experience, then you have found the absolute perfect solution. This home offered a welcoming feeling that exuded comfort and warmth. The location was just a stones throw from beautiful Nauset Beach. The sunset views off the deck were beyond breath taking. While most rental homes offer all the amenities a vacationer could desire, this home not only did, but had a certain charm and comfort level that could not be matched.

    The owner Lou, could not have been nicer and more professional to deal with. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived to the all too sudden departure for home. Please do yourself a favor, and consider this your next vacation destination. Trust me, you won't regret it. Take it from someone who has been vacationing on the Cape for many years, that this property is truly a " Winner ". Beyond Highly Recommend - " The Brown Family "
