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!

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!

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

Dear Liz,

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!

Looking forward to having you back again soon!

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.

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

A great stay!

My family and I had a wonderful and comfortable stay at Scott's house. The fenced backyard was perfect for our dog and kids, self check in was very easy, the kitchen well stocked, the grill ready to go, and the beds comfortable. The neighborhood pond beach and playground were perfect for little kids. We'd love to come back!

So glad that you, the kids and the dog all appreciated the comfort of our home! I try and make it as nice as possible, and it's great when that is recognized by my vacationers! The local pond beach & playground is really a great place for the younger kids! I do hope you become another one of our many repeat vacationers next year!

Cheers.

Absolutely Lovely Stay

My family and I stayed at Long Pond during the 1st week of August- Scott's house is just lovely. We enjoyed cooking in the fully stocked, brand new, beautiful kitchen and then eating in the large, private backyard. Perfect for our dog and 2 year old.

The bathrooms, bedrooms, living room, family room, AND living room (there was so much space to move freely!) were all decorated tastefully, maintaining the aesthetic and original details of the home. And of course, they were spotlessly clean.

Scott was the perfect host; I had emailed him with a lot of questions beforehand and he answered quickly and clearly. I even left my key fob at the house mistakenly and Scott was kind enough to reach out and go through the trouble of mailing it back to me free of charge.

We truly hope to be able to come back next summer.

Dear Kathryn,

Welcome to the Long Pond Cottage family!!! I am so glad that you were able to enjoy our home, and that you found the amenities to be to your liking. I also greatly appreciate the comments about the cleanliness of the house, that has become so critical, and I hired a new cleaning service in 2020, so I am pleased that you recognize their hard work as well. Also glad that your house and car keys made it back to you safely, another guest after you left even more things at the house, that I shipped back to them as well.

I do hope you can make it back again in the near future.

Perfect family Cape Rental!

We enjoyed our stay so much and loved the house. The location was perfect, we usually stay on the other side of route 28 but we LOVED the neighborhood! It was close enough that we could ride our scooters to the Parker River beach but we had the added benefit of the pond for my younger nephews and my older parents when they didn't want to swim in the ocean. The house lay out was ideal for my parents, my sister's family and I to have our own space. And we were so appreciative of the crate for our pup as it was one less thing to pack. Not many rentals allow dogs in the Cape so to have found this place was a miracle. The yard was great for eating our take out and hanging since we didn't want to eat inside restaurants due to covid. The house also has a much appreciated outdoor shower! The neighborhood was quiet and without much traffic, we loved taking morning and night strolls. The house was very very clean and stocked with everything we could have needed. The only negative was our stay wasn't long enough! We hope to be back next year, Thank you Scott! show more show less

Dear Kati,

So happy that you and your entire extended family found our "little slice of heaven" off the beaten path! I love our neighborhood, it really is a hidden gem and Long Pond is a great option for older (or younger) family members to enjoy a little beach without the waves! Thanks for letting me know that the house suited your needs, had everything you wanted and thanks for recognizing the hard work of our cleaning crew (especially this Summer!)! We look forward to your return!

Felt like home

We had a wonderful week at this lovely cottage. So close to so many things! The warm interior makes you feel comfortable right away, just like home!! The separation of the master bedroom from the other bedrooms was appreciated, as my dog has a cough due to a heart condition and I was so happy we didn't disturb the others. Having two bathrooms is also a big plus! The yard was perfect for us and our dogs and loved the outdoor shower. Having the lake so close to walk to made my boy dog so happy, as he loves to swim and cool off in this hot weather. Thank you, Scott, for being so attentive and responding so quickly. You made it so easy and I appreciate your attentiveness. I would definitely rent your lovely home again. show more show less

Dear Joyce,

So glad you appreciated the comfort & convenience of our home. I too love the separation of the bedrooms, and while my dogs aren't water-dogs, the lake is a great place to cool down the "kids" (both two and four legged ones!). I look forward to having you back in the future.

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.
