Description

The Summer Season for 2020 is now open for bookings!

And, a brand new KITCHEN was just completed in 2019!

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 DirectTV on 2 Flat-Screen TVs, full-size Washer & Dryer, Dishwasher, 2 Wood-Burning Fireplaces, 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.

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!

Two Weeks of Family Fun

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks on Cape Cod at Long Pond Cottage. The house was the perfect size for my husband and myself, our two daughters (5 and 9) and our dog Levi! Finding a dog friendly home in a central location was very important to us and Long Pond Cottage fit the bill! We were able to enjoy countless activities from visiting Woods Hole and Heritage Gardens on the Upper Cape to spending a day in Provincetown, enjoying the Wellfleet Audubon center, as well as a quick drive to Chatham for dinner. You are able to take in all of these great locations with ease from this location. The beaches in Yarmouth and Dennis are beautiful and easy to access and there are countless restaurants and shopping nearby!!! The house was clean and comfortable, it has the charm of an older house with beautifully updated bathrooms and kitchen. While it is close to busy streets, you are in a quiet neighborhood—my daughters safely rode their bikes back and forth from the pond where they enjoyed swimming and playing on the playground—probably their favorite part of this location!! Well, maybe they also enjoyed the fact that Cape Cod Creamery is also around the corner! We even took in a few baseball games from the field around the corner at the high school. I could have stayed for the whole summer! Our dog Levi was comfortable in the crate that is provided (even able to place in a room with A/C while we were gone for the day) and having a fenced in backyard was ideal for letting her out—she loved watching the bunnies in the yard! You can tell the owner truly cares for the home and is very accessible and responsive to any questions. show more show less

Dear Liz,

It was so nice that your family selected Long Pond Cottage for your July vacation. So glad that Levi enjoyed the house as well!!! I'm glad your daughters enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and riding down to the lake beach & playground. Many of my guests with young children love that beach more than the ones by the Ocean! Walking to Cape Cod Creamery can be dangerous!!! So many calories, so close to the house!

I do hope you become another one of my repeat vacationers in 2020.show moreshow less

Another amazing vacation on Cape Cod!

This is our second year at Scott's wonderful Yarmouth house and it is even better than before! He continues to update things PLUS we love the way he decorates with amazing colors, photos, artwork, etc. This house is extremely convenient to Long Pond that allowed our dog Bunny to swim daily and exercise. It is also a very easy walk to the pond beach and playground for our granddaughter and the great enclosed backyard for both of them to play, with no worries. We did make 2 trips to Sandwich while were there and had a fun time at the Marina and also the Heritage Museum....a great place for every and especially kids of any age. We also went hiking at Fort Hill in Eastham, which was very flat and an easy walk for a 3 year old. We also ventured out to Wellfleet to see the numerous seals and dine at the Beachcomber, a true Cape Cod experience.
Scott takes pride in the home and wants to make sure everyone is treated like a guest, and we look forward to coming back to Yarmouth again soon!

No better place to stay on the Cape

Long Pond Cottage gets great reviews. Here is another one. While a little plain on the outside, the inside glows with warmth and character. Two seating areas are filled with comfortable chairs and sofas. The real stuff, no second hand oh it is just cottage furniture here. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. Comfortable chairs for reading in bedrooms are a thoughtful addition. Bathrooms are newly remodeled and have plenty of space for all your stuff. Gorgeous new kitchen was cause for kitchen envy. We appreciated the quiet neighborhood. We explored the Cape from Woods Hole and Sandwich to Provincetown. So easy from this central location. We have been visiting Cape Cod for many years. Will absolutely come back to Long Pond Cottage. We loved it. Oh, Scott is a great host and is so easy to work with. show more show less

Feels like home

My spouse and I have been renting this cottage for a week in September for the last couple of years, since we adopted our first dog. Actually, we signed our agreement when we had one dog, but by the time September rolled around, we had two. This spring, we were missing the Cape and knew we couldn't wait until September to head back. We checked the availability and "our" house was available for the week we wanted. We had gotten an email from the owner telling us about the new kitchen and the new grill, but the reality of the kitchen was far more beautiful than the pictures could express. We were thrilled that our girls remembered the house and our regular walks around the pond and couldn't wait to stretch their legs playing chase in the backyard as soon as we unpacked. The humans in the family are counting the days until September when we can go back to what feels like our Cape home. The house is perfectly situated. It's close to Long Pong, providing nice walks for two and four legged family members. If you want to go to the beach, you can walk or drive to the South Yarmouth Beaches, and you can get in the car and easily get to any of the other fine beaches the Cape has to offer. If you want to cook (and the new gas grill is fabulous), the house is very close to several big grocery stores. If you want to go out to eat, the house is within driving distance of many of the Cape's restaurants - from picnic table casual to white tablecloth fancy. And one more important thing to note about this house is that it's within an easy walk of the Cape Cod Creamery, to me, the best ice cream on the Cape (although I know everyone who has ever visited the Cape had THEIR favorite ice cream place). Bottom line, if you're looking for a great escape to the Cape, be sure to check out this house. From the moment you walk in, it really does feel like home. show more show less

It was so nice of you to "surprise" me with a Spring visit!!! It's one of my favorite times on the Cape, beautiful blooms, warm days & cool evenings, and no crowds!!! Looking forward to having you back again in September!!!

Everything was indeed perfect. We loved the house and all of its delightful contents and thoughtful touches. We slept comfortably (I had the room with the double bed) and used the kitchen very lightly as it was the general consensus to eat our meals out.

Paula served as our concierge, tour guide, and driver. Over three days we covered the Cape from Woods Hole to Wellfleet and had the extremely good fortune to have sunshine every day. As I am an early riser and nature lover, a special treat for me was spending the early morning hour watching from the bedroom chair the rabbit that visits your back yard at that time of day. I also saw my very first pair ever of Baltimore Orioles in the bush by your living room window. For us, early May was the perfect time to visit the Cape. I don’t know if I will get back there again, but the memories will last forever. Thanks so much for letting us share your lovely home. show more show less

Another great week!

We had the best weather ever for our week's stay in this quiet, well furnished home. This was our second year here, and again everything was awesome. Go see the play at Cape Playhouse..whatever it is, you will like it!

Dear Daniel,

It was so nice to have you back for a 2nd year! I do agree, the Cape Cod Playhouse is a fabulous venue for live shows, and well worth it!!! I do hope you can make it back again for a 3rd year in a row!

We enjoyed our stay at your cozy cottage Fenced in yard was great for the dog. The street is quiet, and your home is so close to the beach and lots of fun things to do on Route 28

I was concerned about Nancy's rating for the cleanliness of the house, as I have many guests tell me the house is spotless. I wanted to make sure that, if there were any issues with my cleaning crew, that I communicate to them directly. So I asked Nancy to tell me what I could do better, and Nancy responded "It would be a rarity that I would give five stars, you would have to be meticulous, eat off the floor clean. It's not that they did not do a good job, I'm a clean freak."

Relaxing vacation home

I was impressed as soon as I walked in. It was spacious and comfortable. With two little boys, there was plenty of room to spread out. The bedrooms were comfortable. The bathrooms also looked new. The new fridge was appreciated (It needs to be leveled better so the door closes better)
Location is great too. Lovely lake nearby. Walk to ice cream store and nearby restaurant.
Scott is very available and attentive to issues. A great host.

Dear Micheline,

It was so nice to have you and your family at Long Pond Cottage for the first time! Also, thank you for letting me know about the refrigerator door. The new refrigerator was literally installed the week before you arrived & I didn't know (until you called me) that they didn't level it properly. That's an easy fix!

The one bathroom is very new (just finished in March of this year!) and the other one is just a couple years old.

Hope to have you back again in 2018.show moreshow less

Great house on the Cape!

This is a fine house to rent..convenient to major roads, but in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to a nice lake. House is well stocked and supplied in every respect. I personally loved the outdoor shower! Our dog Newman felt at home here, and the house was very dog friendly. Scott, the owner , actually cares about your experience at his house, and it shows!

Jewel Box of the Cape!

Long Pond Cottage is a beautiful home. Scott took such care to prepare it to receive us upon arrival. We enjoyed breakfast each morning and dinner most evenings in the dining room. Our daughter loved making s'mores on the grill after dinner. We also relished eating at our favorite local restaurants: Seafood Sams and Yarmouth House. My husband and I had an amazing date at Harvest Wine Gallery on Thursday night with amazing cocktails and danced into the night to live jazz and blues. We will cherish the memories made this summer staying at Long Pond Cottage. Thank you again for trusting us to stay in and care for your home. show more show less

Dear Dee,
So glad that everyone enjoyed the cottage, and that the backyard was well used by all. I have never been to Harvest Wine Gallery, so thanks for the tip and I look forward to trying that place out when I get back up there myself!

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.

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.
