Description

Description

This beautiful 1947 Cape Cod ranch home was built by a master carpenter and retains all of the old-world charm of its time. Offering 3 bedrooms (1 Queen, 1 Full & 2 Twins) each with its own reading nook, 2 full baths, free Wi-Fi, HDTV from Comcast on 2 Flat-Screen TVs, full-size Washer & Dryer, Dishwasher, 2 Wood-Burning Fireplaces, central A/C and a fully fenced yard (for privacy & safety of your 4-legged family members!) with an outdoor shower.


Centrally located in the Mid-Cape region, everything is close-by. Walk to the sandy lake-front Beach on Long Pond, or drive less than 2 miles to the beaches on Nantucket Sound. Do you love Baseball? The Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox playing fields for the Cape Cod Baseball League are in walking distance. Less than 15 minutes away are the ferries to Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard, a perfect option for day-tripping to the Islands! In case you just can't get away from work, the home is wired for wireless internet through Verizon. There are two HDTV flat-screen TVs and DirecTV for your at-home entertainment, along with a DVD player & CD/stereo system.

Should the weather be rainy while you're here, there are plenty of board games, cards & books to enjoy while you snuggle inside the warmth of the knotty pine Family Room.

Plan on coming for a visit when the evenings get chilly? There are two beautiful wood-burning fireplaces that are the perfect place to relax & enjoy a good fire, roast some marshmallows or share a romantic glass of wine with someone special.

Your four-legged family members (maximum of 2 dogs only, please, no cats) are welcome to enjoy their vacation as well. We have provided 2 large dog crates for your use when you are out of the house.

The Master bathroom was completely remodeled in 2011 & now has the same ''beachy & colorful'' feel of the rest of the house! The guest/hall bathroom was expanded & completely renovated in 2017 to match the rest of the house.

A brand new KITCHEN was just completed in 2019!

Central air conditioning was added in 2021!

We've taken every opportunity to furnish the home for our own personal enjoyment, and yours as well. May you love your visit to Long Pond Cottage and come back year after year!

So much to do during your stay! Whatever you love, you'll find it nearby to Long Pond Cottage!

Charming Cape House

First time staying at this lovely Cape. It's very charming and centrally located. The Kitchen is on trend and well equipped. There are two living rooms one with a TV and the other with a sitting area and beautiful photography books by Scott (don't miss viewing them)!. There is a private fenced in backyard with a dinning set and umbrella. It's great for an evening cocktail. The neighborhood is very walkable and a short walk from Long Pond. I am booking for next year!

Long Pond Cottage Haven

This house is magical. As soon as we stepped through the front door we knew we had found the perfect home base for our Cape vacation. Loved how the master bedroom and bath are apart from the other bedrooms and living areas so my husband and I had privacy, as did our grown children.

The thoughtful touches are everywhere—lots of reading material, comfy furniture and lovely decor. The kitchen is amazingly stocked with implements, and we cooked more this vacation than on any previous house rental because of that, and also we had our best family time around the dining room table. We bought fresh ingredients and great baked goods at Ring Bro grocery in W Dennis and also shopped at the local chain supermarkets. All conveniently close to the house. show more show less

Favorite pet friendly house we've stayed in!

Scott's house was perfect for our needs, loved the set up of bedrooms and the outside yard was perfect for our labradoodle Ziggy. House was clean and charming, a real cape cottage with great upgrades such as central A/C and new cabinets.

It was the best walking neighborhood and is close to bike path, various grocery stores and the beach! Seagull was our favorite, the lot was never filled to capacity regardless of what time we went. Have already booked for 2 weeks next year! Scott also quickly responds to any questions or concerns, see ya next year?? show more show less

Hi Nancy,

Thanks so much for the kind words, and welcome to our repeat family for 2022!!!

I do also love walking around the neighborhood with my "kids" Ally and Digger. Good tip on Seagull Beach, it's not one I frequent, so will have to check that one out when I get back.

Great Location for the Whole Family

We loved our time at Long Pond Cottage. The house was cute, homey, well stocked and so clean. The location was perfect for everything we love to do on the Cape. Our dog Milo loved the dog crate, the fenced in back yard, long walks around the quiet neighborhood and the pond.

We rented kayaks a mile away (they will deliver for multi day rentals) and our dog really loved going out on the boat with us. The pond was so beautiful and we were able to spend time there as well as the nearby beaches.

A special thank you to Scott for great communication and for sharing your lovely home with us!

Hi Rachel,

So glad that everyone enjoyed their first visit to Long Pond Cottage!!!

OK, you are the first guest that told me you took your dog out on the kayak's too!!! I'll bet Milo did enjoy himself as much as you did. I try and keep the house well-stocked and my cleaning crew always loves to hear compliments on how well they do making it ready for each guest!

I do hope you become yet another one of our happy, repeat vacationers, and thank you!

Beautiful Long Pond Cottage

Long Pond Cottage is in a great location in Yarmouth. The home is in a very quiet neighborhood and has a very secluded back yard. We had rabbits, chipmunks, and many different varieties of birds visiting us daily.

The home is a classic Cape Cod. Very cozy. It has two fireplaces. It is very well decorated. It has many places to sit and read and relax. The kitchen is brand new a year ago and has everything a cook needs to prepare meals. The central air added this past May 2021 will keep you cool on those hot humid Cape Cod days. It works great in every room of the home.

You will be located within a 5 minute drive to Bass River beach. Minutes from the grocery store (and liquor store too). The neighborhood is great for taking walks in. You can walk to Bass River in about 15 minutes.

It is just a great home for a vacation. We spent two weeks there. You will not be disappointed.

Dear Don,

I'm so glad that you were FINALLY able to make it to our home! When COVID hit in 2020, you were worried and rescheduled to 2021. So glad that didn't need to get delayed once again!

Funny, since you didn't bring your dog with you, the critters in the back yard likely knew they had a safe haven for two weeks! I too enjoy my walks in the neighborhood, and so glad the brand new A/C was well used during your visit.

I look forward to having you back again soon.

Exceptional Vacation Stay

We all enjoyed our stay at Long Pond Cottage. This is a beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable home. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking and baking. We enjoyed breakfast outside in the private backyard every morning.

The location is great, near the pond, perfect area to go for walks and close to the grocery store.

Our golden retriever Daisy enjoyed her stay and seemed at home in the large crate.

Scott was very responsive to any questions we had. We appreciate him letting us stay at his lovely home. show more show less

So glad that Daisy (and the rest of your family!) had a wonderful stay at Long Pond Cottage!

I agree, I love having my morning coffee in the back yard too!

Perfect Location!

We visited Long Pond Cottage in May to avoid the crowds and it worked out perfectly! We brought our mini poodle who had a blast exploring the corners of the private, enclosed back yard. The cottage is located in a beautiful pond side neighborhood perfect for early morning walks.

West Dennis beach is 9 minutes away and Mayflower Beach just a quick 15 minute drive. As we were there before Memorial Day there was ample free parking at the beaches, no crowds and we could bring our pup with us to watch the sunsets!

The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. We liked the layout with a private master bedroom and bath on one end and second and third bedrooms with a separate bathroom on the other. Our favorite spots for food included Ann and Fran's Kitchen for the best breakfast ever and the Sailing Cow for yummy burgers and a dose of local charm!

We brought our bikes and took advantage of the Cape Cod Rail Trail just minutes from the cottage. Scott is a wonderful, attentive but not over bearing host. Thanks for a much needed restful and fun vacation!

Thanks Ellen!

You've found two places that I've never been to yet (Sailing Cow & Fran's Kitchen) so I look forward to checking them out when I get back to the Cape! I agree, Spring on the Cape without the crowds is the perfect time to visit. Glad the visit was restful, and we look forward to having you back!

Charming place, perfectly located

We were very happy with this home rental. The central location made it easy to get to all corners of the Cape. The home is nicely decorated with a goodly amount of private, outdoor space. The kitchen was well appointed with extra conveniences like a stand up mixer and more than enough serving dishes, place settings, glassware and utensils. The owner provided great restaurant recommendations - don't miss the Pheasant in Dennis or Marion's Pies in Chatham! We hope to return again soon.

Great Location and Accommodations!

Charming neighborhood location, with scenic walks around Long Pond. Excellent dining options nearby. The house us very well equipped with premium appliances and utensils. The layout of the house with separate bedroom "wings" would make it ideal for extended families.

Thanks so much!! Both you and your wife Tami wrote lovely reviews!!! So glad that you selected Long Pond Cottage for your very first visit to Cape Cod this Fall. May it become a regular stop for your vacation memories!

Just what we needed!

Thank you, Scott, for a wonderful and restful week! The house was very comfortable to stay in with lots of nice touches to create both a relaxing and fun atmosphere. The kitchen had any utensil or spice you might need, beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed just being in the house together or separately in one of the 3 "reading nooks" when we weren't out and about. Our pup loved the house too, including her crate (so convenient!) as well as the fenced-in backyard where she enjoyed running around and exploring. We also enjoyed the privacy of the enclosed and green backyard, and ate many of our meals on the patio.

It was a treat to be so close to Long Pond. We took our dog there daily, and then explored the lovely neighborhood. The location of the house is fabulous - we easily visited both bay and ocean beaches. Our favorite time was watching the sunset at the beach! Also some nice trails to walk nearby - we especially enjoyed the Botanical Trails at the Historical Society of Yarmouth. We want to recommend visiting the Cape after Labor Day in addition to the traditional summer visit. It's beautiful and still warm, and Scott's house is a lovely place to settle in and enjoy the fall.

I contacted the guest regarding the 4-star review for cleanliness, as they never commented to me while they were at the house.

"A few pieces of cutlery, 2 forks and 2 knives, weren't clean and there were some cobwebs."

I've already addressed the cobwebs comment with my cleaning crew. As for the cutlery, unfortunately, if a previous guests doesn't fully clean the utensils, and they put them back in the drawer, that's not something the cleaning crew would notice.
/>Thank you for your stay, and I do hope you come back again!show moreshow less

Thank you for checking out Long Pond Cottage!!!

I have been renting the house since 2008, and have many satisfied returning clients. I began my love affair with Cape Cod in the 1980's when I attended Boston University, and have been coming back ever since! I purchased this property in 2008, and enjoy taking breaks in the off-season (and also a great time for you to rent!) while the Summers are filled with my guests!

I have a German Shorthaired Pointer and an English Springer Spaniel, hence our house is a completely dog-friendly property, full fenced!

What is special about this property?
Long Pond Cottage is a perfect blend of the old and the new! I love the fact that each of the bedrooms have their own reading nooks and the previous Owner was a gifted carpenter. My own personal decorating style is not your ''cookie-cutter'' interior design, and it feels very much like my own home (which it is!). The two bathroom renovations are what I am most proud of designing. and the new kitchen (2019) is another colorful addition to the renovations list!

It's a great walking neighborhood with access to a (non-motorized) fresh water lake for swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, etc.

What is special about your town?
It's so central to everything, yet tucked away from all the busy roads.
