Mashpee House Rental Photos and Description

Year-Round 4 BR 2.5 BA Lakeside Home with Spectacular Lake Views

Fall colors are spectacular from the many windows of our cozy cottage on Santuit Pond in Mashpee, Cape Cod, on a quiet wooded street. Enjoy tree-framed views of the lake from almost every room. Our location offers access to many parts of the Cape, including Cape Cod National Seashore. Shopping, movies, and ocean beach are nearby.

Main entry brings you to the den, open kitchen, dining and living rooms. A large deck on the lake side includes a gas grill and outdoor eating area with terrific views. 2 bedrooms--queen and twin/king --and a bath are one level up and 2 more--queen and twin--and a bath are one level down. On the ground level you can walk out to a quiet office, or down steps to the lake. 3 living areas, including a Foosball table, allow room for the family to engage in various activities, and we have 2 TVs with DVD and VCR. A maximum of 13 can sleep in the four bedrooms plus queen sleeper sofa, double futon, and twin convertible, and a porta-crib.

No smoking indoors and please remove all traces of smoking outdoors. No pets, please. Minimum contract age 25.

Amenities: Fully equipped, recently remodeled kitchen with everything you'd expect to find, including lobster pots.

All linens are provided for bed, bath, and beach. 2 cable TVs with VCR and DVD, and a huge selection of movies. Stereo, CD, high-speed wireless internet, indoor and outdoor eating areas, books and games, phones, office, washer/dryer, central AC, LR gas fireplace for chilly times, gas barbecue.

Activities: Swimming, boating, fishing, biking, golf, movies, fitness center, shopping, ocean beach.

Area: Mashpee is midway between Falmouth and Hyannis, not far from Sandwich, on the Upper Cape. An hour's drive takes you to Provincetown, an hour and a half to Boston or Providence. Almost any activity you might wish for your holiday is within easy access. A favorite activity is just sitting on the deck to enjoy the lake views while you sip your coffee in the morning.

When we remodeled the kitchen we thought about the extended families (including our own) who enjoy staying and cooking at Tree House. The island with vegetable prep sink and stools for chatting with the cook, stainless appliances, large dining tables both indoors and out--all make it easy to center your social life around meals. The den, living room, and family room on different floors also work well for many guests' family arrangements, so you can chat, play games, watch different movies at the same time. Of course there are plenty of places to eat out or watch the latest movies on the big screen if that fits your wishes. And you'll find numerous places to take walks, enjoy the beach, go to the islands for the day, browse for antiques.

About Kathy Marshak

Although we live in Illinois, we treasure the time we spend on the pond with extended family.

Kathy Marshak purchased this house in 2004

Why Kathy Marshak chose Mashpee

Our family has spent summers on Santuit Pond since the 60's, and we wanted to share our home in a beautiful, quiet part of the Cape.

What makes this house unique

Mashpee is a convenient central location on the Cape, and Tree House is a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family. The home's varied indoor and outdoor areas give visitors many opportunities for time together and on your own.

A gem of a property

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for my extended family to celebrate Dad's 75th birthday, and it didn't disappoint on any level. It was such a welcome sight to walk into the beautiful den and dining room and see the lake in the background. Over the course of our week there, we never tired of the view.

The owner did everything to make sure we had what we needed for a worry-free vacation: good directions, lots of travel information in the house, can't-miss recommendations on everything from beaches to farm stands to seafood stores, plenty of books and movies for the rare rainy days, and even a welcome basket to greet us after a long day of travel.

It's a really comfortable space, and a tastefully decorated one. We never felt crowded and given that we love to cook, we appreciated the top-notch kitchen. Never had to buy any kitchen gadgets. They have everything!

Mashpee is a great spot to be, as it will save you from having to not only get to the Cape but then drive further up route 6 (which can get congested). It's a good starting point for day trips to a wide variety of different beaches, antiquing, the quintessential Cape mini golf courses and plenty of quaint little towns. Nothing's more than an hour drive away from this house.

Without hesitation, I'd rent this again, and would give anything to be sitting on the back deck with my coffee this morning, watching the sun rise over that pretty lake.

Great Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a view! We had a wonderful time just hanging out on the dock and enjoying the pond. The house was clean and spacious. The owner is very easy to work with and provides lots of good info about the area. Thanks for a memorable weekend!

Nice time!

  • 4 of 5
College friends and I used the Tree House for a number of years, for a boys' weekend of fall golf on the Cape. We enjoyed it and then tried other locales off the Cape for a few years. It was great to be back a few weeks ago.

The neighborhood is very quiet and convenient to Route 6 and Mashpee rotary (shops restaurants etc.).

The house itself is terrific, plenty of sleeping accommodations and living areas. The kitchen is really well appointed for those who want to cook. The deck is enormous and looks out on a beautiful pond. The owner makes little improvements every year.

We noticed a slight musty odor downstairs upon arrival but after opening windows for a few minutes, this minor detail corrected itself.

Don't tell the owner but it's a great deal:) We'll be back!

Beautiful house, poor pond conditions

  • 2 of 5
We absolutely loved this cozy home. However, we were surprised to see that the pond was overcome by some sort of algae. We were not made aware of this prior to our arrival, and that was quite a disappointment. We opted to rent this waterfront home after debating on spending a little more than we were used to, especially when we were not allowed to have our dog. The owner was very pleasant when I expressed my disappointment, and told me that the pond is "swimmable." BUT nobody in their right mind would jump into green water that is murky. Beware, if you want to swim, don't rent here.

Owner's Response: We are honest when asked about the status of our pond. Natural cycles can include intermittent algae which, while not lovely, does not affect health or safety. The town has gone to great effort and expense over the last few years to remediate the water quality, resulting in measurable improvement. We anticipate that next summer the water will be even better and will continue to provide opportunities for boating and swimming as our family has experienced during more than five decades on Santuit Pond.

Beautiful view from the deck!

  • 5 of 5
The Tree House was perfect for a group of college friends in town for a wedding. There was space for everyone, Kathy was friendly, responsive, and more than accommodating, the place was spotless when we arrived (much appreciated!) and we had all the information we needed for a relaxing weekend. We loved every moment out on the deck!

FANTASTIC PLACE TO RELAX

  • 5 of 5
The tree house met all our expectations. Beautiful home surrounded by many trees and while relaxing on the deck felt like you were in an actual tree house. House was very clean and ready for us to move into for a week. The view of the pond from the deck was amazing, especially at night with the moon beams reflecting off the pond.The little separate office building in the back yard was a great place to just enjoy a quiet moment and enjoy God's beauty. Never been to the cape before but I would recommend it to anyone wanting a fantastic vacation.
