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.

...It had been a few years since our last stay at the lovely cottage and if possible, it was even better than remembered. The cozy home is so comfortable with two "living rooms" for stretching out and relaxing -- and the entire house is decorated perfectly so you don't feel like you're in a rental!

Since our last visit, Scott has redone the master bathroom and it's a great update.

And while we enjoyed every minute at the house, we had forgotten how incredibly convenient the location is! My husband got to golf some great courses and I found that I was never far away from some great attractions (such as the Heritage Museum in Sandwich) or shopping in Chatham, or great photography drives.

Also, grocery and drug stores are less than five minutes from the house even though the cottage is tucked on a quiet street, just a short walk from Long Pond.

Logan, our big goofy dog, couldn't get enough of romping in the back yard and we never had to worry because it is all securely fenced in -- a great convenience!

Scott is a pleasure to deal with and really wants his guests to feel at home and make the most of their time on the Cape.

...We couldn't have asked for more....and can't wait to return for another visit!!!

Owner's Response: It was so nice to have you back after such a long absence!! A trip in October is one of my favorite times to visit the Cape, no crowds (on the roads or the golf courses!) and great colors for photography! I've enjoyed updating the house over the years and it's nice to know that my "home away from home" is viewed as such by my vacationers! I look forward to having the two of you (and Logan) back again, and hopefully not 5 years from now!

Warm welcoming home for people & dogs alike

Scott was incredibly responsive, professional and easy to work with. Should I ever rent a vacation property, I will model myself after him. His welcome book should be covers everything. The home is the perfectly decorated cape house and better equipped than most homes - kitchen, electronics, everything you need! The fenced in backyard was perfect for our mini Schnauzer to wander safely, play fetch or just sit beside us while we enjoyed our morning coffee or afternoon read. We will be back. Thank you, Scott, for your sharing your home and the thoughtfulness you took to ensure your guests, both 2 legged and 4, have everything they need. - Jane, Bob, and Shadow

Owner's Response: So glad the three of you (which includes Shadow!) had a wonderful time at the house. I do try and make it feel like my home away from home, and always glad to know that my special touches are greatly appreciated. No-one has ever suggested I publish my guest welcome book! For those that don't know Cape Cod, it has proven valuable, and it gets changed with recommendations from vacationers too! Looking forward to having you back again soon. Thanks.

Wonderful home!

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!

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!
