More Guest Comments!: ''We had a great week and many thanks for our ''deluxe'' accommodations. My son commented on the web site and was afraid he would loose me to your home. It is very much my style and we couldn't have been happier. We found your home to be comfortable, spacious, and felt very safe there. My 80 year old Mother was even impressed by the way she was able to easily get around.'' Rose, Casey & Josephine - Troy, NY - July 2008

'We had a wonderful time at the Cape and enjoyed your home very much. You provided everything to make our stay quite comfortable. The weather wasn't the greatest but we are pretty used to that living in New England. We were able to do all of the things we wanted to do and also had a couple of really nice beach days. We would definitely recommend your home to others. Thanks for everything.' Kosta & Gail - Worcester, MA - July 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I (+ son and friend for 2 days) recently spent a week at this property. Our first visit to Cape Cod and our first trip with Chloe, our 9 year old lab/pit-bull mix. We chose the perfect place - comfortable, homey, dog friendly (fenced in back yard - perfect for Chloe) tastefully equipped with furniture to match the home's character.



This home is centrally located and it was easy to get around the Cape. We took the opportunity to visit most of the major towns/areas. Our favorite was Wellfleet, mainly because it had managed to keep its village feel, its old-world charm, and the harbor had not been converted into a modern marina.



We also took Chloe on long walks to Coast Guard Beach (30 minutes drive to Eastham but well worth it - dogs need to be on a lead at all times). We managed to avoid the high summer (starts June 19th) car parking fees of $15! Another highlight of the stay was Marion's Pie Shop (mentioned in the welcome folder). Best pies outside of the UK :-) .



Overall, a comfortable, relaxing week spent in a well equipped, tastefully decorated, charming home.

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR AND MORE

  • 5 of 5
This charming, immaculate, and delightful home was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. The layout of the rooms made it possible for several things to go on at the same time. The lovely dining room brought us all together. The kitchen was well stocked and then some! This cottage was warm and inviting during the rain and open and cheery when the sun was out. The best rental we have yet found!

GREAT OFF SEASON STAY

  • 5 of 5
We needed to find lodging around the Hyannis area as my daughter and her friend were running the 1/2 marathon....in Feb no less. Scott's Long Pond house ended up being the ideal situation. The layout of the home worked real well, the fires made us feel right at home, and the dogs enjoyed the fenced in yard. The proximity to the Nantucket beaches was perfect too, as we walked there each day (fortunately the weather cooperated with sunny skies and decent temps each day). The location of the property made it very easy to get to the different Cape locations we wanted to visit. Thanks Scott.

Owner's Response: So glad that everyone had a great week-end, and that you happened to pick the one weekend just after the blizzard when the temps shot up to near 60 degrees!!! Who know why they schedule a 5-K road race in February, but so glad that you all selected Long Pond Cottage to relax before & after the road race!!! I do hope you all can come back for a longer vacation the next time.

Cheers.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Long Pond Cottage! The house is exactly like the photos, so there were no surprises. It is beautiful inside & out! We felt at home, so it was easy to relax. It's wonderfully decorated an very clean. There are so many cool places to curl up with a book, (if you get that chance). Our little dogs were not scared at all, in fact they got up early every day just to watch the squirrels playing outside! They really enjoyed playing in the backyard....They loved it as much as we did.
The house is in a nice neighborhood with very little traffic, but it's just a 3 minute drive to the beach or to Bass River. There are restaurants & stores within minutes as well. I had the best lobster chowder at Skippers Restaurant and the pizza at Carluccios was delish!
Overall, this house was amazing and I would stay again in a heartbeat:)
thanks Scott!

Owner's Response: Hi Leisa,

So glad that your first visit to Cape Cod was spent at our house!!! A long distance from Texas, and two full weeks in the Fall is the perfect time to fully explore our "slice of heaven"! Your recommendation for the Lobster chowder is a new one for me, and I cannot wait to go try some! I do hope to see you back again.

Cheers.

COZY COTTAGE FULL OF GREAT NOOKS

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at this cottage. It was perfect for our two families, with the house having practically two wings, one for each of us. The tv room was really cozy. We also enjoyed the backyard, making the most of the great Sept weather and the BBQ. The location was perfect for us to enjoy both the top of the Cape and the beaches and national park, as well as a day trip to Martha's Vineyard. Scott was very helpful and responsive to make the booking and ensure we had a really nice stay. Thanks Scott!

Owner's Response: Dear Monica,

So glad you all felt at home, and appreciated the lay-out with the bedrooms on opposite ends of the house. Everything is basically 30-45 minutes from the house to get to almost any end of the Cape, and it sounds like you went all over! Hope to have you back again soon. I am back here myself, and the late September weather is absolutely perfect, mid 60's and bright sunshine all week! I love the off-season on the Cape, and so did you!

Cheers,

Scott

A SPACIOUS COTTAGE WITH A SECLUDED BACK YARD

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is in the perfect location for enjoying both Dennis and Yarmouth beaches. Aside from being charming, this home is spacious, very clean and offers all amenities. The lovely garden and fenced-in backyard provided the setting for many hours of relaxation. Our Wheaten terrier enjoyed swimming daily in the fresh water pond right down the road. A fantastic location to stay and enjoy the Cape-and a bonus to be able to bring your pup as well. We look forward to coming back for another visit!

Owner's Response: Ellen, thanks so much for the wonderful comments! I know that you certainly appreciated the full 2 weeks at Long Pond Cottage this year (one week just wasn't enough for you!). We do look forward to having you back again next Summer, but if you want 2 weeks, hurry as half of August is already booked!

TRULY A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had one of our best vacations at the cottage on Long Pond!! The house was just perfect with a fully stocked kitchen, spacious lay out, and relaxing environment. This was our first time renting a home for vacation, and the family was more than happy! . Everyone had their own space (including our dog). Long Pond is a short walk from the home, and offers a perfect spot for fishing, or just relaxing. Beautiful beaches and golf courses are just a short drive from the home. Also, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and other attractions very close by. Our family strongly recommends this cottage to anyone looking for a place to call their true home away from home!

Cheers.
