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, Wi-Fi, HDTV from Comcast on 2 Flat-Screen TVs (one Smart TV in family room with Netflix, Amazon, Disney, etc.), full-size washer & dryer, dishwasher, 2 wood-burning fireplaces and central A/C.

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! There are two HDTV flat-screen TVs with Comcast for your at-home entertainment, along with a 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. Crating of your dog(s) is required when you are not in the house and we have provided 2 large dog crates for your use.

The back yard is fully fenced and we also provide a fire pit, table seating (with an umbrella) for six, a gas BBQ grille and an outdoor shower. Long Pond is just around the corner, and a town beach on the pond is a 5 minute walk away. The beaches of Nantucket Sound are just 2 miles away.

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 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!

    GREAT house! Central to everything on the Cape!

    We LOVED our stay at Long Pond. The location was great and the house had everything you could possibly need. All 3 kids and the dogs enjoyed the backyard and the great pond for fishing and playground all within walking distance. Scott is a pleasure to work with and is readily available to offer many ideas for things to see and do and places to eat. We checked out many different beaches on the Cape and enjoyed whale watching and a day trip to Provincetown. It truly is in the PERFECT spot to see all that Cape Cod has to offer. Don't feel like going out? No problem. The house is cozy and inviting and truly feels like home! show more show less

    Dear Kristy,

    Thank you so much for selecting Long Pond Cottage for your Summer holiday! A day trip to P-Town is a must do while on the Cape, glad you made it out to the very end! So glad you felt at home, and I do hope you can make it back again in the future.

    Cheers.

    Long Pond Cottage Vacation

    My family just got home from an amazing vacation at Long Pond Cottage. We have rented homes on the cape before, but none as lovely as this. It had every amenity that we needed.

    Our grandkids loved the short walk to beach, playground, and basketball court. It was very spacious for 2 families. Maya loved the fenced yard and huge kennel. It is a few minutes drive to many great restaurants such as Captain Parker's and Scallys. It is also close to Greys Beach and Mayflower Beach for amazing sunsets. Our grandkids favorite beach was Smugglers Beach where kids can go crabbing from the pier. It is also near Pirates golf and a water park.

    We are already talking about returning next year.

    Dear Karen,

    Thank you for your lovely review, and welcome to the Long Pond Cottage family!!!

    Many of my guests love the Town park that is right on Long Pond, with the little beach, playground and basketball court. It's great for those with younger kids! Also, so happy that Maya loved the fenced yard and the dog crates! So glad that you were able to go crabbing, and the sunset photo that you shared with me from Grey's Beach was awesome!

    I do hope you can make it again next year!

    Cheers.

    Another spectacular week at a fantastic home on Cape Cod

    This is our 3 time staying at this amazing house on Cape Cod and glad to be able to spend time there with family after several years of laying low due of Covid.
    This house has everything for a family vacation including a well-stocked kitchen (2 mixers, blender, toaster, and tons of cooking pots and pans), 2 separate living areas, great A/C, a huge dining room, easy access to all of the ocean beaches PLUS a short walk to a great pond that is free! He has decorated this house with fun and whimsical art work and supplied many extra things for his guests including a fire pit, great outdoor shower, gas grill plus a large patio table that seated all of us.
    The other major reason this has become a regular vacation spot for us is the attentiveness of Scott (the owner) to any and all of our requests and inquiries. He is thorough, attentive, very easy to reach and responds back quickly to texts and phone calls…what more could anyone ask for???
    Now a few comments from Bunny, the dog about her 3rd stay:
    "I love coming back to Scott's house because it is obvious that he loves and cares so much about dogs plus is so welcoming to other canine like me. He has provided 2 very large crates plus has a very secure fenced backyard so I could enjoy the sun and many smells of Cape Cod. I also loved the walks that we took in this very quiet neighborhood and can't wait to go back again soon!! Ahh…the wonderful smell of Cape Cod air!"

    Dear Carol,

    Thank you for coming back to Long Pond Cottage for the 3rd time this Summer! I appreciate the compliments about my design aesthetic, it is certainly not your cookie-cutter rental house. I'm happy that Bunny also felt the need to contribute to your review! It is always helpful to hear from the dog's perspective too! My dogs love their daily walks around the neighborhood as well.

    I do hope to see you back for a 4th visit in the near future!

    Cheers.

    Lovely Retreat

    It was a lovely stay at Long Pond Cottage. From the minute I stepped inside I felt at Home. As I mentioned in the guest book each room welcomes you like a warm blanket. House is wonderfully equipped and ready for all your needs. I had several guests in and out thru the week and the layout beautifully accommodated everyone. Since I enjoy many areas on the cape the central location made it a breeze with its close proximity to both Rt 28 and Rt6. I also loved the walkability of the neighborhood.

    Should you enjoy fine dining I highly recommend The Ocean House in Dennis Port.

    Scott is a wonderful Host and I do hope to be back next year.

    Dear Leah,

    Thank you so much for selecting our Long Pond Cottage for your Summer vacation! I do love the centrality of the location as well, it's just so easy to get everywhere from the "middle" of the Cape! Glad that you felt at home, I try really hard to NOT make it feel like a sterile rental!

    Cheers.

    Cozy Cape Cod Cottage

    This cozy Cape Cod cottage in South Yarmouth was a perfect place to call home for our family reunion week. The quiet and safe neighborhood was walking distance to a fresh water lake where we enjoyed swimming and kayaking almost daily. The cottage's enclosed backyard was equipped with chaises. tables and chairs making our morning ritual of coffee and chatting just right. Low to no humidity helped too on these sunny mornings. We also took advantage of the outdoor shower after coming home from a beach, sailing, kayaking, hiking, or biking.

    Having the cottage in mid-cape proved useful for exploring different towns and villages. We visited the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich for the Hydrangea Festival this week, the lavender farm in Harwich which wasn't completely harvested yet, Hyannis for a sunset cruise on a catamaran sailing around the Kennedy Compound and the Lewis Bay, took a day trip to Provincetown and the National Seashore, and rented a Boston Whaler to motor around the Hyannis harbor to the ocean and to a secret cove for a fine little swim off the back of the boat. The restaurant selections for great seafood was greater than our given time. Some favorites include: Yarmouth House in the garden, Royal II Restaurant and Grille, Captain Parker's Pub and the Skipper Chowder House around Yarmouth as well as the Lobster Pot in P-town.

    This cottage provided everything that we needed and more!

    Dear Gail,

    It was lovely to have you and your family at Long Pond Cottage for your little family reunion. You sure did pick a great week for the Hydrangea Festival, and it sounds like you took full advantage of every single day, trying something new and exciting every day!!! I have never taken that catamaran tour, I'll have to look into that when I return. I also need to try the Royal II Restaurant, that's a new one to me!

    So glad you enjoyed the lake, it really is a lovely, long pond for kayaking!

    Cheers.

    A Home Away from Home for Families and Furry Friends alike!

    This house truly shines above and beyond the rest! Situated in a charming and quiet neighborhood within a stroll to Long Pond, and a short drive to most destinations on Cape Cod, we were able to take part of everything the area has to offer. From convenient trips to the National Seashore beaches, visits to Provincetown, shopping and exploring Hyannis, and all the fun in lively Yarmouth, we couldn't have chosen a more perfect location to stay. We wandered the gorgeous gardens and exhibits at the American Heritage Museum and Gardens, biked the Cape Cod Rail Trail, beat the escape room at Upside Down games, sailed at sunset with Bay Spirit Tours (finding Max Kennedy disembarking his sailboat!), and continued time-honored traditions of mini-golf at Pirate's Cove and the necessary Cuffy's sweatshirt shopping trip. The excellent location allowed for adventures, while also being comfortably close to our furry family members.

    Scott is the ultimate host, responsive and friendly, checking in on us and making us feel at home. He's quick to answer questions and his handbook gave us lots of ideas for attractions and restaurants to visit during our stay.

    We were sincerely amazed when we pulled up to Long Pond Cottage. A wonderful backyard provided a great area for morning coffee and reading, the gorgeous and perfect kitchen was full of every tool needed to make special meals. The cottage is spacious and comfortable, with many cozy areas to relax. We were so impressed with the large bedrooms and spacious bathrooms. After spending countless summers in various homes along the Cape, we woke up the first morning astonished at how comfortable the beds were. We have gotten so used to "roughing it" on vacation, a good night's sleep was so delightful!

    The pet friendly-ness of Long Pond Cottage relieved a lot of stress. Having dog crates was so helpful, and Indy and Leia loved walking the neighborhood and playing in the backyard. As soon as they walked in, they were immediately at home. I can't tell who had a better vacation – us or the puppies! We can't wait to return!

    Hi Stefanie,

    Wow, you guys really got around all over the entire Cape in just one week!!! WHEW!

    I do love that our house is so centrally located to everything, and it seems that you took full advantage.

    So glad the doggies enjoyed the house and the yard too! I'm also happy that you enjoyed the mattresses! Two of them arre brand new this year, and I did spend good money to give a quality sleep for my guests, thanks for recognizing that feature!

    Looking forward to having you back again in 2023, your week is already reserved!

    Cheers.

    A family favorite.

    We have rented Scott's Long Pond Cottage at least 6 times and it gets better with each visit. Our last visit was without a pet, but all prior visits were with our dog. The house is perfectly located in a walkable neighborhood. The backyard is secluded, fenced in and was loved by our dog Bailey.

    We took a short break when Bailey was getting too old to make the trip. When we returned this spring we were pleased to see all the upgrades made.

    If you are looking for a rental that has all the charm of a Cape Cod cottage, with a newly renovated kitchen, renovated bathrooms, central air and so much more, then this is the place for you.

    This was our first time experiencing the house without our dog, To be honest, we had reservation about whether it was logical staying in a pet friendly house when we no longer had a dog, but knowing how Scott maintains this house, we gave it a shot. We were not disappointed. The house was cleaned to perfection. If we didn't already know that this house was dog friendly, we would have never know. The house comes supplied with crates and everything you need for your dog, but it was cleaned so well that you would never know this is a pet friendly house.

    The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need, there is lots of reading material, comfy furniture and well decorated throughout the home. This is not a typical rental where the listing displays pictures of a house from 10 years ago. It is immaculate and if anything, the pictures don't capture the true charm and visual appeal of the house. What you see in the listing is what you get. Scott is a perfect host and maintains this property to perfection.

    Needless to say, we will be returning.

    Dear Stu,

    I was so pleased to have you back at Long Pond Cottage after an extended hiatus, and I was so sorry to hear of your loss of Bailey.

    Thank you so much for the numerous compliments (especially about our cleaners, they really do try to go above and beyond for my guests!). I do hope that when you return again, you have a new four-legged family member to introduce to Cape Cod!

    Cheers.

    Long Pond Cottage - Cape Cod Vacation Perfect Family and Furry Friends Retreat

    From the moment we stepped out of the private drive into the front door of Long Pond Cottage, we knew we were entering a "home away from home." The air was sweet, the atmosphere was completely quiet, and private!

    The cottage is welcoming, beautiful, organized, clean and decorated, and designed in a magnificent way, so that a family can comfortably enjoy its charm, together, or for quiet, alone times, separately. The neighborhood is dreamy, and we were right around the corner from Long Pond, where we walked to in the evening with our beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Oliver and Brady. My favorite spot in the house was the cozy, formal living room, where I was surrounded by color, character and beautiful finishes. I love to read, and the variety of reading materials at my fingertips in the small library of living room, coupled with the multitude of picture books of the Cape was a pleasant oasis for me to return to each night after our day's adventures. Tom loved to retreat into the Den, where a hearth fireplace and cozy furniture gave him the perfect space to watch the NBA finals. The amazing blue kitchen, fully equipped, was a cook's dream, where we happily prepared breakfast, lunch and dinners, that we enjoyed in the large, sophisticated, bright dining room, under a beautiful, stunning large chandelier! The walls are adorned with Scott's professional photography shots of the Cape in its spendor! The artsy bathrooms were a treat to get ready in each morning. The bright, cheery Primary Bedroom was perfect for us to relax in at the end of the night, enjoying the sweet evening breeze, and even more wonderful to awaken to. Having a primary suite bathroom located in our room was most wonderful.

    It was a blessing to be able to bring Oliver and Brady. They loved the house, and quickly became comfortable. The backyard is the perfect size, and was their oasis, and Brady ran the yard fetching balls everyday, while Oliver explored the nooks and crannies of the lush green haven. We barbecued out back two of the evenings, and then retreated into the comfy Adirondack chairs over a gorgeous fire toasting marshmallows for chocolatey s'mores. There were two oversized crates at the house that we used when we left to explore, and Ollie and Brady were happy to get their own mini-vacations from us!

    This house is in a perfect quiet and peaceful location! Minutes away from shopping, and many spectacular places on the Cape whether you are a beach goer, or museum visitor, there is just so much to do.

    Scott is the host with the most! He has every bit of information you'll need for your stay, from his "11 Favorite Things To Do,." I was able to plan each day of or trip easily, based on his knowledge of the Cape, and his awesome recommendations: A trip to Hyannisport to see the Kennedy Compound, the ferry services to both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, beaches close by that included the beaches we could bring the dogs to, and where to find the best ice cream (Cape Cod Creamery) and best Clam Chowder (Captain Parker's) were all taken from his list!

    We visited Provincetown twice, and had lovely seafood meals there, and did the majority of our shopping. After dinner at the Lobster Pot, we drove a short way to Race Point Beach, where our breath was taken away by the majesty of the waters! We then went to Herring Cove Beach to watch a beautiful sunset. Marconi Beach in Wellfleet was amazing. The seals welcomed us at the tip of the ocean, and we walked a few miles to take in the beauty of the beach and the surrounding waters . We visited the Drive-In Movie in Wellfleet afterward, and experienced the nostalgia of a drive-in from years past! The National Seashore was a wonder to experience.

    Words cannot describe the relaxation we experienced at Long Pond Cottage and Cape Cod. The two go together like bread and butter! We will most definitely return!!

    Dear Jean Marie,

    First, thank you so much for the lovely review!!!

    Second, I think you now hold the record for the longest, written review I have received to date!

    It really means alot that folks appreciate that I try and make my place feel like your home away from home, and that all the various amenities are used and enjoyed! My "Top 11 Things to Do" is my favorites list, and it's great that it truly helped you figure out how to enjoy all that Cape Cod has to offer, for your first ever visit to this little slice of heaven!

    So glad that Oliver & Brady enjoyed the fenced yard and walks around the neighborhood!

    I do hope to have you back again in 2023!

    Yarmouth, Cape Cod, dog friendly cottage

    We spent the last week of May at this delightful South Yarmouth cottage. It is well appointed and though somewhat close to a main route it is very quiet except for the beautiful cacophony of bird song at various times of the day. The kitchen is likely the best equipped of any rental we have ever stayed at on the Cape (many).

    One doesn't see many Baltimore Orioles in my neighborhood of Northern Massachusetts but they were abundant here. There is great walking in this neighborhood with the lake being a few minutes away on foot.

    Also this town is quite central to any areas you may want to visit on Cape Cod with easy access.
    Our nervous nelly Border Collie mix was so relaxed here with the quite and privacy and thoroughly enjoyed the completely fenced in back yard, rabbit and squirrel hunting. In Yarmouth there are a couple of nice walks with your leashed dog at the Botanical Trails at the Yarmouth Historical Society. Also there is a great dog park about an 8-9 minute ride away.

    If you want a relaxed space, a lovely place to stay with your friends and family and and of course and perhaps most importantly your best friend, then we highly recommend it. Robin and Peter

    Dear Robin & Peter,

    Thanks for selecting our Long Pond Cottage for your Spring get-a-way this year. It was so nice that you shared a picture of your Phoebe enjoying the house while you were there! I didn't realize that we had a large population of Orioles on the Cape, that's cool! I try to think of everything a guest could need (especially in the kitchen!) and am happy that it is appreciated by folks like you.

    I do hope to see you back again in the future.

    Cheers.

    We Love Long Pond Cottage

    We have stayed at Long Pond Cottage four times. This year we spent three weeks. Next year we will stay four weeks. We love retirement! We have been here with friends, on our own and this year with family.

    Two living rooms and three bedrooms make it roomy and comfortable for family and friends. The exterior is modest but once you step inside you will be thrilled you booked this cottage. It is beautifully decorated and is very comfortable.The large dining room is great for gathering around the table for meals or doing jigsaw puzzles. We did three this trip. The master bedroom and bath are large and comfortable. Each bedroom has a reading nook if you like a bit of quiet reading. I do!

    This trip our son and his girlfriend joined us for a week bringing their dog Parker along. Parker loved walking the neighborhood and nearby beaches. We love walking West Dennis Beach. Parker also loved the fenced backyard but was disappointed there weren't more squirrels to chase.

    Scott is the perfect host and is very quick to respond if any issues arise. I let him know the picture on the TV was failing and he had a new one sent to the cottage. So next year you will enjoy a beautiful new smart television. I am sure this is the best equipped kitchen on the Cape. We were joking around saying he has every appliance possible here. But guess what Scott, there is no waffle iron. We made do with pancakes because of course there is a griddle.

    We also survived the bomb cyclone that hit the east coast in October. Safe and cozy at Long Pond Cottage. The best part of the stay - our son proposed to his girlfriend at sunset on West Dennis Beach. Starting new memories on Cape Cod.

    Thanks Kay!

    And first, CONGRATS on the surprise addition to your family!!! What a special place to propose!

    So glad to have you back for your 4th stay and who would have guessed that a bomb cyclone would come through in October!!! I'll be heading up to the house this week, and will look forward to watching the new TV!

    Your 4 weeks are already reserved for 2022, let's hope the weather is more cooperative next year.

    Cheers.

    I have been renting my first property (ID# 14849) in South Yarmouth 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 that 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!

    In 2022, I have added to my portfolio & just launched another fantastic rental (ID# 35548) in the quiet north side of Dennis, just a short 2 miles to Mayflower Beach!

    I have a German Shorthaired Pointer and an English Springer Spaniel, hence both houses are completely dog-friendly & 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.

    Highlands Haven is a larger property that provides for an even larger fenced yard. I have spent the Winter of 2022 completely renovating the house & imbuing it with a more modern, colorful vibe! This too is another great walking neighborhood with very few vacation rental properties, yet is so close to all the amenities of Dennis along the historic King's Highway and multiple beaches within 2 miles.

    What is special about your town?
    Both South Yarmouth and Dennis are central to everything, yet tucked away from all the busy roads.
