Nestled between oaks and pines along the East-facing shoreline of Big Sandy Pond, our welcoming little cottage beckons the vacation experience, a perfect spot to relax during the summer.

The 134-acre lake is managed as a catchable trout pond and is annually stocked in the spring and fall with Brook, Brown, and Rainbow trout. Just 15 minutes from Cape Cod and historic Plymouth and only 45 minutes from Boston and Providence, a myriad of activities await you and your family.

Whether you enjoy water sports, or like to golf, shop, eat, or visit the many nearby historic sites and museums, everyone will find something special at Big Sandy Cottage.

Fully furnished cottage with two bedrooms, sleeping loft, and one bath. Sleeps four in the bedrooms, up to two small kids in the loft, and two additional adults on the living room sofa bed.

Large 10' x 30' deck overlooking the lake is perfect for an afternoon barbecue. Large private dock extends 28' into the lake with a 8' x 16' swim platform

Free Wireless Internet, TV, DVD (with movie library), stereo, provisioned kitchen, and all linens are included.

There is even a basement storage room with laundry facilities. Off street parking with room for boat trailer is available.

Very nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! It was clean upon arrival. Everything you need is provided right down to movies, books, and games. Loved waking up in the morning to the view of the pond and sitting on the spacious deck drinking our coffe. Will definitely stay again. I needed to ask Jeff a couple of questions and he was quick to respond and very accommodating.

Cozy but comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Although the actual living space in this cottage was smaller than we were used to, it did not feel cramped or close, due to the open floor plan and adjoining deck space. The views are tremendous and the pond water is very clear and clean. I really enjoyed sitting on the dock and swimming or floating right there, but we also made good use of the association beach when we had small visitors. Everyone we met was friendly and accommodating and really made us feel welcome.

Very quaint, and more importantly quiet place to spend your vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peace and quiet that this spot allowed us. It was very well equipped to settle into and if we were to come back to the New England area again this would be a good landing spot. Only critique to be aware of, if you plan on spending a lot of time in Boston be prepared for some windshield time, traffic is tough. That being said if you want a nice quiet spot this is a good option, and very close to Plymouth which was great for dining.
