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.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5
I am so glad my "human" family chose this house for our vacation. I know it can be difficult to find dog friendly properties, but they hit the jackpot with this place!! My tail is still wagging every time I think of that big fenced in backyard with so many new places to sniff and explore! We all loved going for walks to Long Pond which was so close and easy to get to. Mom and Dad loved that the master bedroom suite was so private while the 16 yr old twins loved that their bedrooms were on the other side of the house, too! We all loved eating outdoors but found the lovely dining room a great place for playing board games and cards. The chess and checker table was really neat! I lay right under it as the nightly challenges took place. After long days at the beach,the outdoor shower was a favorite for everyone, but me! This house is so conveniently located to beaches, shopping and restaurants. My personal favorite eating establishment is The Dog House on Lower County Rd. in Dennis where dogs are welcomed! The owner even took my picture and placed it on their Facebook page! He gave me doggie treats too, while my family rave about the hot dogs, hand cut fries and onion rings. Scott, the owner of the this great home, also loves dogs and he is very responsive to any need that may arise. We all had a fantastic time here and next year maybe we'll get to stay for two weeks! I give this lovely Long Pond Cottage the top rating of four paws up!! Thank you, Scott! Annie, the Boston Terrier

Owner's Response: OMG, my first ever review from one of my Canine vacationers, I LOVE IT!!!

How creative, but it just goes to show that "four paws" are just as happy here as "two feet"! That place in Dennis is a new one for me, will have to go check it out next time I'm on the Cape with my two dogs. I look forward to having you back next year, and bring the humans with you!

Summer vacation on the cape 2014

  • 4 of 5
Loved my summer vacation on the cape, wish I had done it sooner..I have rented several beach houses in the Narragansett, area, but being at the cape was nicer. There is not much to do in Narragansett, RI at night, this house is dead center to all points of the cape..You are right off rte 28 with all the activities, 20 minutes to Hyannis, 5 minutes to two local beachs and just 1/2 hr away from a great beach in Dennis and Orleans. This house came equipped with everything possible thing you would need. The description of this house is exactly as shown, if I had not checked out the house earlier in the year, I would have passed it several times upon arrival due to the overgrown bushes in the front of the house..The house itself was very clean and well maintained on the inside other than the window AC's, they all needed to be cleaned..
While staying for the week, we went to 4 different beachs, walked the main street in Hyannis on that Sunday as it was rainy, and played miniature golf and rode the go karts. We ate out 3 nights at Chapins, a Mexican restaurant in Hyannis and one right on route 28, the other nights we cooked in and had a BBQ. The outdoor shower came in very handy, loved taking a shower outside after a day at the beach..I would definitely rent this house again, as well as recommend it to friends. Very nice that the yard was completely fenced it, worked well with the two dogs..The dogs felt very comfortable in the home..Most people in the house commented on how comfortable the beds were, no problems with any of the mattresses..

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all the kind words, and for the comment about the A/C units, I will make sure our cleaning crew adds that to their list. I happen to like the "overgrown" look as it provides significant privacy to the house, and people walking by can't see into the windows as easily.

Charming and comfortable - loved it!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Long Pond Cottage with another couple and our lab mix, Gus. We chose this property after an exhaustive online search because of the glowing reviews -- and they were spot-on! It's true, the house is exactly as pictured in the photos. It was immaculately clean when we arrived, and fully stocked with all the comforts of home. We were pleasantly surprised to find absolutely everything we needed in the kitchen, including cookware and serveware, utensils, plastic wrap, foil, spices, condiments, etc.

The layout of this home is also great for two couples -- we each had our own sections with a bathroom, so we never felt cramped. We took advantage of the backyard quite a bit, playing card games around the patio table and playing ball with Gus. There was plenty of shade in the yard to keep him cool, and we loved that it was fully fenced.

The neighborhood is absolutely charming too -- well maintained, quiet, friendly neighbors, and the lake is right around the corner. We saw lots of dogs swimming and people fishing and kayaking.

Thanks to Scott for the informative guest binder left in the home -- we took a lot of the recommendations for restaurants and places to visit, and especially enjoyed Bass River Beach. It was so close and easy to get to, and much nicer and cleaner than some of the bigger National Seashore beaches.

All in all, the home exceeded my expectations. We hope to return!

Owner's Response: I try so much to make the house feel like a home, and furnish it as well as I can think of for your needs. So glad that you appreciate all the little details I do to try and make your vacation memorable! There is something so relaxing about our local Long Pond, and you are correct, the Bass River Beach is just a great little gem, less than 2 miles away! Looking forward to having you back again to create more Cape Cod memories!

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.
