This cluster of cabins is situated on the Long Pond shore front. We have worked hard to preserve the unique, 1930's fish camp character of each cabin. If you are looking to commune with nature, seek a respite from modern life or just want to enjoy Long Pond, these cabins are for you. There are three bedroom cabins and one kitchen/living cabin. Each a stone's throw away from the other, the structures give you a bit of privacy and thus are suitable for a group of couples or mixed families. There is a private waterfront with small dock just next to the Dick's cabin. We're at the end of a private, sandy road and located next to Pinewoods Camp. The camp is only in session from late June through Labor Day. In early June and September, when these cabins are available, the pond is wonderfully quiet. You can enjoy the area's wildlife, swim in the clear waters, hike miles of nature trails or use the cabins as a jump-off point to explore the Cape and Boston.
Each cabin is unique.
Dick's Maggot (that is the name of an English Country Dance, not a bug) has a shore front bedroom with queen bed, a sitting room with couch, chairs and working fireplace and a bathroom with old fashioned claw foot tub. You can sit in the bath and look out onto the pond.
Betty and Helen has two bedrooms one with queen bed and one with two twins. It has a cute fireplace nook (the fireplace does not operate) and a screened porch. There is a toilet room with cold water but you can use the outdoor shower with hot water nearby.
Ricky's House is one room with an extra long twin and a cot. It has a screened porch that looks onto the lake and a toilet room with hot water. There is an outdoor shower next to the cabin.
Lilliburlero has a full kitchen, a living room with working fireplace and a screened dining porch that looks onto the lake.
We are a family of five siblings, one mom and six grandchildren. Many of us live in the Boston area and spend our summer weekends on the property.
The property was given to our grandparents in the 1940's and has been passed through two generations. This property is a part of our bones. It is both a struggle and a labor of love to maintain the historic, rustic character of our structures. We all grew up here and know every root, tree, bug and plant. There are home movies of three generations of babies playing on our beach. and we all know the stories -- like how our dad knocked a pillar down while learning to drive.
There are rare places in our modern world where time stands still. This is one. We have let a few tinges of modernity filter through -- we do provide internet but not TV, electricity and hot water. But we try to turn off the digital world and come here to experience the simple life -- nature, swimming in a natural lake, hiking beautiful trails, sitting on the porch, taking in the view, quiet nights, stars, rain pattering on the roof .......
Our location is great for touring southeastern Massachusetts. Many of our guests stay with us and visit the sights in historic Plymouth, Cape Cod and Boston. But we prefer to stay put and enjoy the local natural amenities: amazing swimming and water activities, hikes through cranberry bogs, perfect mountain biking roads and solitude.
