Such a Nice Getaway Oasis!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed here twice already and have just booked my third visit this fall because I am in love with this place. Me and about 12 other women come and relax, do yoga, do bonfires and hang on the water. Most of us are coming from NYC and this place provides the perfect peace and quiet we need! I also bring my two rescue mutts and they love hanging out on the pond and going boating with us! Anne and Dick couldn't be better hosts! When you get there, there is always a plate of delicious homemade brownies! Also, the first couple of days during my last visit, it was unseasonably cold and Dick brought over firewood because he was concerned that we would be cold! I cannot say enough good things about Anne and Dick and the property! I'm sure I will be back for many, many wonderful visits!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful property is the perfect setting for a large group of friends or a family gathering. You do not have to leave the property with a large private beach to enjoy all day long and fire pits to enjoy the sunset. The owners are very easy to work with and accommodating. Highly recommended.

A wonderful place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
John Joseph Pond was the perfect place for our friends. The three cottages provided us with a lot of space so we never felt cramped. The outside of the property was charmingly rustic while the inside was equally as charming with all the modern amenities needed to make us feel comfortable. The pond was one of our favorite features! During the day we took advantage of the variety of boats available for our use and at night we utilized the fire pits down on the beach. On nights when it was too cold to venture down to the pond, it was an added bonus that there were fire pits right outside the cottages as well. John Joseph Road is conveniently located on the Cape, nothing was more than a twenty minute drive away!

The owners of the property could not have been sweeter! Before arriving they sent us a detailed list about the any information we need to know about the property and the area, even providing us with recommendations for their favorite restaurants. When we arrived they came over to introduce themselves and bring us a plate of delicious brownies. Since we were there early in the season, it was a little cold. But when the owners heard it was going to be unseasonably cold, they brought over extra space heaters for us!

I would highly recommend this property! It is a great place for a large group who is looking to have a fun experience on the Cape! My friends and I hope to return to the property in the near future.

A Great Place for the Family!

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends had a great time! We were a large group but had enough space to enjoy the Cape Cod weather. The kids loved the pond and the adults loved the fire pits! The location is centrally located to many places we wanted to go which made driving around the Cape much easier. I really loved it and hope to have a chance to go back and rent again!!!

John Joseph Pond Cottages

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay on John Joseph Pond. Even though the cottages are right off the road, all the trees and the pond made us feel like we were deep in the woods. We had our own private, sandy beach, with access to kayaks, a canoe and paddle boards. We all had a blast swimming out to the raft and looking for turtles, frogs and fish. There are 2 fire pits down on the beach that were well used for toasting marshmallows and making s'mores. The cottages were very clean and had everything we needed - lots of beds for the 3 families that were staying there. The kitchen is very well outfitted with everything you need to cook simple to extravagant meals. The slate patio between 2 of the cottages was our favorite place to eat and hang out when we weren't down at the beach. And, the cottages are just a short drive to some great ocean beaches, ice cream stands and the cape cod bike trail! The owner was very responsive to all our questions and concerns. His dad, who lives next door, came over with a welcome plate of brownies on our first day. All and all, a great time was had by all.

Private sandy beach on a beautiful quiet pond - perfect for swimming, fishing, and non-motorized boating. If you prefer the ocean there are several public beaches nearby. A golf course is just a block away and nearby conservation land is perfect for walking or bird-watching. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is not far away and is a favorite way to bike to the town tennis courts, playground, playing fields, and most importantly the ice cream shops!
