Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for considering to stay in our home. We have recently purchased this beautifully furnished shaker-style Cape Cod classic from another couple who rented it. These are some of the comments from the prior owners guest book regarding their stay a "Lazy Lane":“Your home is elegant, spacious, yet cozy, had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and then some. The privacy and patio nestled in the woods were awesome. I’ts just a heavenly place for R&R.”“We love this house – it’s so well appointed! Loved sitting in the kitchen by the bay window with a cup a coffee.”“We enjoyed your lovely home. The setting and Bucks Pond enriched our stay here. Your well equipped home and kitchen made it easier.”“We had a fantastic visit in your warm home!”“Thank you for your amazing hospitality and child-friendly home!”“We have rented a variety of vacation homes over the past 40 years, this was the homiest and with the best equipped kitchen.”“The ponds were perfect for the children who couldn’t get enough of them. We are more than pleased with your hospitality and look forward to returning next year.”

We had a wonderful vacation in your home! The whole house was beautiful and inviting but your kitchen was just the best. My husband and I would sit in the comfy chairs with the lights dimmed after the kids had gone to bed and just have a moment to talk and plan the next day. It was such a warm and comfortable room!

A great place to stay whether for vacation or while you attend a wedding on the Cape, golf outing with friends, etc. Many members of the wedding party, families & guests have enjoyed the serenity, cleanliness & convenience that this special home has to offer during an exciting time. You will probably not want to leave Bucks Pond (freshwater lake) but there are many saltwater beaches within minutes of the house including the Public Beaches of Harwich (3mi), Chatham, Skaket Beach on the bay side, and the Cape Cod National Seashore. The Town of Harwich boasts golf courses, bike trails, beautiful harbors, and quaint downtown shopping areas in Harwichport and nearby Chatham. Within a mile of ''Lazy Lane'' is a movie theatre and 2 large shopping areas with pharmacies, Chinese food, great restaurants, video store, photo store, & Super Stop & Shop.
