Enter your pond-front cottage and escape to timeless serenity and tranquility nestled between the waters of the two ponds: Great Pond at your front-yard and Deborah’s Pond at your backyard. Start your day by watching the sunrise over the Deborah’s Pond. The serenity and beauty of Deborah’s Pond will remind you of Monet’s famous paintings of water lilies, except here you are in the picture. During the day, enjoy the activities that the Great Pond offers, swimming, sunbathing, boating and fishing, or explore the famous Cape Cod bike path just steps away from the house. Done with your day’s activities, share a glass of wine while watching the spectacular sunset over the Great Pond. At night, the moonrise over Deborah’s Pond is equally beautiful, the glowing moon and billions of stars twinkle in the sky and reflect in the still water. The time you spend at our cottage will be happily measured in sunrises and sunsets. The only thing you will find lacking is the time to take it all in.
Renovations complete! July 21: We just completed renovating the cottage. All new modern kitchen with new appliances, new windows with brilliant views of Deborah's Pond and Great Pond, new pine flooring throughout, all new furniture beds.
The house sits on a narrow strip of land with Deborah's Pond at the back deck and the Great Pond across the street from the front yard. Deborah's Pond is a 6 acre pond half covered by white flowering lilies. Occasionally ducks swim among the lilies, dabbling for food. The Great Pond, Eastham's largest pond (110 acres), is just across the street from our cottage. It has a beautiful swimming beach with lifeguards (at peak times) and a boat launch. The Great Pond is the place to swim, fish, boat, canoe, kayak, or wind-surf.
The famous 22-mile Cape Cod paved bike path runs next to Deborah's Pond and is easily accessible from the house.
On a larger scale, the location is between the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Cod Bay, about 2 miles from the Coast Guard Beach at the National Seashore and about 1 mile from First Encounter Beach or Kingsbury Beach on Cape Cod Bay.
