TAMARACK LAKE ESTATE is really more like a resort than a house, you get so much provided for your vacation. Most people come to Cape Cod to gaze at the ocean. But what if you could be at the ocean beach for hours on end, and two minutes later go home to a luxurious lakefront estate a few blocks away? Imagine the enjoyment of having the best of both worlds -- the sandy beaches of Cape Cod Bay and the sparkling clear waters of a spring-fed 376-acre glacial 'pond.' (One guest described it as a Lake Tahoe/Cape Cod vacation.) In this amazing spot, you'll have privacy, recreation, and comfort in a setting graced with sparkling waters, towering pines, brick paths and patios, decks, private sandy beach, dock, and boathouse -- even before you encounter the incomparable home itself.
The home is VERY well provisioned, with nice linens, top of the line appliances , cookware, spices, condiments, baking needs, soaps, paper goods, laundry supplies, Tamarack has wireless Internet, digital cable TV, an extra wet-bar kitchen to serve the Great Room, kayaks, canoe, swim platform, dock, boathouse with bunk beds, water toys, life jackets, – private waterfront beach and fire pit, Great Room patio also has a fire pit, there is a barbeque patio, picnic area.

Tamarack has a beautiful gathering room, tastefully decorated in restrained Nantucket style, a place to converse or watch TV. From here, enter the sleek mini-kitchen outside the Great Room. The Great Room, added to the house in the '90s, has a 22-foot stone fireplace, sit-upon hearth, plank floors, soaring ceilings and a expansive glazed-brick veranda where Adirondack chairs line up to take in the water view. This magnificent room is divided into areas: a banquet table, a writing area, two sitting areas with off-white couches, a British West Indies armoire housing the TV, and 1830s mahogany horseshoe counter for laying out a buffet, or locating your laptops *WiFi throughout.
You may feel inspired to write your memoirs here under the watchful eye of the Sable Antelope on the fireplace. Ship stairs lead to a carpeted loft overlooking the gigantic room. A wall of sliders open to the large brick patio, offering a flow and ease of indoor-outdoor living, with mature estate plantings and towering pines.
The fantastic main kitchen has a vaulted beamed ceiling with six skylights and excellent task lighting for cooking. Wood floors, mahogany countertops, and top quality appliances make this two-sink, two-dishwasher, three-oven, bountifully-stocked and meticulous kitchen a place to spend all your time. The chefs will appreciate our Thermador ProHarmony gourmet gas range with Faber pro hood, Miele MasterChef double convection oven, Sub Zero glass door refrigerator. Miele and Bosch dishwashers make cleaning-up painless. You may want to spend your entire time in the kitchen. Step out the French doors into the sunny courtyard to snip some herbs or turn right to go to the brick barbeque patio with its Weber gas grill and stress-removing lake view.
The bedrooms are pleasant and thoughtfully decorated. They are appointed as follows: (upstairs) master suite = lake view, queen bed and luxurious bathroom. Middle bedroom = lake view, 2 full-sized beds with antique cannonball headboards. 3rd bedroom= lake view, 4 twin beds (think cousins spending the summer together). 4th bedroom=courtyard side, two single beds. Main floor bedroom (just off the Gathering Room and mini-kitchen/wet bar) queen bed and adjacent bathroom (grab bar installed in tub wall.)
Tamarack has a private boat dock with jet ski ramp, a sandy beach, a boathouse with a bunk bed and all-glass boathouse doors, with the lake lapping at the edge of the boathouse -- an exciting location in itself. Kayaks, a canoe, floats, and water toys are supplied.
For those considering accessibility in case a dear one isn't as mobile as in the past, most of the home's features are at-grade. The slope down to the water is an easy stroll and there is a secondary driveway down by the dock that enables access by car.
The circular driveway allows multiple vehicles to navigate through the park-like setting, and there is space for an event tent and caterers' vans. (On a case-by-case basis, we will consider very small weddings, most neighbors aren't keen on weddings.)
