HISTORIC SUMMER COTTAGE AND YOUR OWN PRIVATE LAKE BEACH ON LONG POND

Plymouth Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 BR 2 BA Cottage on Idyllic Long Pond, sleeps up to 9

You'll love the short walk to your own private beach and clear blue swimming water on beautiful Long Pond. Historic Apley House has hosted happy family vacations for over 70 years. Situated in the middle of conservation land, this spacious summer home is perfect for people who enjoy water-sports and the outdoors. You can swim, fish and boat on one of Southeastern Massachusetts' pristine glacial lakes. Enjoy quiet morning strolls along woodland paths and visit the nearby historic sites in Plymouth and Cape Cod in the afternoon. Plus, Apley House is just a short drive away from shops, ocean beaches and Plymouth's great golf courses. Avoid wrangling with Cape Cod traffic and stay in Plymouth. Apley House offers spacious housekeeping accommodations. The cottage has four bedrooms, a large updated country kitchen, a comfy living room with fireplace.

There's so much to do in the area: Swimming, fishing and boating are favorite activities on Long Pond. The lake is well-stocked each spring and there is a public boat ramp for access. Ample hiking and bicycling trails head into the Wildlands Trust properties next to the cottage and lead you through woods and cranberry bogs around Halfway and Gallows ponds. The scenery is magnificent. We've seen osprey, eagles, mink, and more. It's an easy drive to the near-by Plymouth and Cape Cod tourist sites; it takes about 15 minutes to drive to Plymouth Bay beaches and Plymouth Plantation. The Lower Cape beaches are about 45 minutes away and it is less than 3 miles to Pine Hills and many great Plymouth golf courses!

Also available: : The Lilli Group, four cabins that come as a unit and sleep up to 8 people. The Lilli Group is usually available in June and September for weeks or long weekends.

The Palace: A charming two bedroom cottage with a fantastic sandy beach. The Palace sleeps up to 6 and is available by the week from May through October. We are occasionally able to accommodate larger groups (up to 35) in these and our family cabins.

The property is currently owned jointly by five siblings, descendants of Lily and Richard Conant who inherited the property from a close family friend. Our children are the fourth generation to summer on Long Pond. The photo shows our mom and her five children.

Susan Conant purchased this cottage in 1920

Although much of summer life on Long Pond is focused on the water, we love the woodland paths and walks that surround Apley House. Our family is committed to preservation of this area -- we gave 40 acres of woodland just next to the cottage to the Wildlands Trust and the State of Massachusetts recently acquired the property abutting the other property line.

You can walk from the yard of Apley House onto nature paths that take you by two neighboring ponds with magnificent views, eagle's nests and scenic cranberry bogs.

The house has all the classic details of an old summer cottage, simple but beautiful wood details, high ceilings on the main floor and cottage construction.

Charming, peaceful, well equipped, centrally located and "felt like home". The location could not have been better for four southerners wanting to play New England tourist. Plimoth Plantation is just a few miles (aweswome), Boston Red Sox game was maybe 45 minutes, Salem, Gloucester, New Bedford....all a short drive and with hardly any traffic. The house is personable and cozy. There is not one thing missing. The porch was our planning location where we would sit at night and plan our next adventure. It was sooooo quiet.....no cars, planes, people, etc......just the sounds of night in a forest. We can't wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful Long Pond has clean, clear waters and a sandy bottom. With a high percentage of natural shoreline, the pond offers a peaceful respite. The landscape is covered in pine woods. Much of the property surrounding Apley House has been preserved as conservation land. You can walk for miles on the sandy trails.

All of the tourist sites, golf courses and beaches in Plymouth are very close -- less than 20 minutes away. You can access the Lower Cape within 1 hour and the Outer Cape is a hefty day trip.

Other Activities: bird watching, boating
