Description

Long Pond Cottage is an idyllic home ready for your vacation memories in the off-season as well! We are a pet-friendly home!


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!

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!

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

This is the first time that I, "Bonnie" aka Bunny/BaaBaa the family dog, have been able to go on vacation with my people and I can't wait to go back next year! My human 20 month old "sister" and I had a wonderful time playing together in the large enclosed backyard and sprinting through the sprinkler on many sunny afternoons. We also enjoyed being extremely close to Long Pond which provided a very safe area for my "sister" to play on the beach and a basketball court for my "dad" to practice his layups. The house was decorated with over-the-top cute, interesting and colorful artwork and many pieces had a wonderful canine vibe which made it so enjoyable for my family, my baby "sister" and myself. The owner provided for my every need, including 2 extremely large "dog rooms" (crates) that made my stay so comfortable when my family was away during the day. My "sister" hated to go to bed for her naps or in the evening, especially when there was so much going on, so it was really nice that the master suite area was close and tucked away, just off of the dining room. This allowed her to sleep in peace nearby while the rest of the adult family could spend time together yet still be very close in case she needed anything. I slept like a log every night, due to the swimming I was able to do during the day, the fresh air, long walks, quiet neighborhood, and the large backyard that allowed me burn off any leftover steam. My family also really enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen, variety of books, and media center in the family room. I also overheard them say how much they appreciated the fact that the the owner quickly responded to questions and wanted us to truly enjoy his special house. He thought of everything and we all had a wonderful vacation!!! show more show less

Hidden jewel on Cape Cod!!

This is a marvelous place for families and kids of all ages or your family dogs. It is very close to Long Pond which has a nice playground for younger kids, basketball court, and a wonderful beach. There is also a great spot right around the corner from this house for dropping in your kayaks- so convenient and private that we felt comfortable leaving our kayaks on the water's edge for the week. The house had everything from books to toys and a well equipped kitchen with every possible appliance. The neighborhood was quiet and and no traffic so great walking for the family and dog. The large patio was perfect for grilling and evening meals and playing frisbee with the dog. Scott has thought of everything and is really focused on his guests having a perfect vacation. I highly recommend this fun and cute house PLUS a gracious and responsive owner! show more show less

Wonderful vacation home for a family!

My family and I had a wonderful week here! The house was exactly as described and perfect for our needs. The house is very clean and well-maintained, and it is obvious that Scott, the owner, has put a lot of time and care into taking care of the house. We brought our dog, and it was very easy to have her there with the fenced in back yard and crates available for her when we were out of the house. Our dog enjoyed lots of walks in the neighborhood, in a recreation area in West Dennis and on a trail near a beach.

Our kids ages 14 and 10 slept comfortably in the bedroom with 2 twin beds and the adults had plenty of space in the other bedrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed and more! We enjoyed having a barbecue one night and loved having breakfast out on the patio every morning.

Scott's specific instructions about the house made it easy to take care of everything we needed that week. He was available by text when I had a question and was very helpful! The house is close to a lake, beaches, restaurants, mini golf, an inflatable park for the kids, supermarkets etc. If we plan another vacation in Cape Cod, I would be happy to stay here again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Long Pond Cottage. This beautifully decorated home is full of charm and provides a great home away from home on the Cape. Beach weather had not yet arrived during our visit, so we spent our days exploring the area. Some highlights included Whydah Pirate Museum, Heritage Museum and Gardens, Edward Gorey House, and the Cape Cod Natural History Museum and Trail. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. There is a great fish market close by and we grilled shrimp and fish a couple of nights. Owner Scott is a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. When we reported a broken toaster, he had a new one sent to the house. Long Pond Cottage is also one of the nicest dog friendly homes we have rented, with dog crates, sofa cover provided, and a very nice fenced back yard. The neighborhood with its pond is very charming and perfect for walks. Our Porties give it 5 stars, too. show more show less

I've rented close to 20 houses on VRBO/HomeAway and Scott's cottage in South Yarmouth may be my all-time favorite. Loved the layout, decor, comfort level, fenced yard, great location, and especially how welcoming Scott is towards his canine guests (including dog beds, crates and blankets for the furniture!) Clancy and I enjoyed trips to the National Seashore, meals from Arthur's Clam Shack in Eastham, pies from Marion's Pie Shop in Chatham (cannot overstate how incredible these were), and just chilling in the family room or backyard. We hope to be back with more friends next year! show more show 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 two German Shorthaired Pointers, 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.
