More Guest Comments!: ''We had a great week and many thanks for our ''deluxe'' accommodations. My son commented on the web site and was afraid he would loose me to your home. It is very much my style and we couldn't have been happier. We found your home to be comfortable, spacious, and felt very safe there. My 80 year old Mother was even impressed by the way she was able to easily get around.'' Rose, Casey & Josephine - Troy, NY - July 2008

'We had a wonderful time at the Cape and enjoyed your home very much. You provided everything to make our stay quite comfortable. The weather wasn't the greatest but we are pretty used to that living in New England. We were able to do all of the things we wanted to do and also had a couple of really nice beach days. We would definitely recommend your home to others. Thanks for everything.' Kosta & Gail - Worcester, MA - July 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I (+ son and friend for 2 days) recently spent a week at this property. Our first visit to Cape Cod and our first trip with Chloe, our 9 year old lab/pit-bull mix. We chose the perfect place - comfortable, homey, dog friendly (fenced in back yard - perfect for Chloe) tastefully equipped with furniture to match the home's character.

This home is centrally located and it was easy to get around the Cape. We took the opportunity to visit most of the major towns/areas. Our favorite was Wellfleet, mainly because it had managed to keep its village feel, its old-world charm, and the harbor had not been converted into a modern marina.

We also took Chloe on long walks to Coast Guard Beach (30 minutes drive to Eastham but well worth it - dogs need to be on a lead at all times). We managed to avoid the high summer (starts June 19th) car parking fees of $15! Another highlight of the stay was Marion's Pie Shop (mentioned in the welcome folder). Best pies outside of the UK :-) .

Overall, a comfortable, relaxing week spent in a well equipped, tastefully decorated, charming home.

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in the door we fell in love. This house is decorated with beautiful photography, pottery items and the furniture is perfect. We loved how we could close off half of the house after the children went to bed and there were plenty of kitchen supplies. We had a great time and look forward to next year in this perfect house! Thanks Scott!

Great stay, thank you Scott. Nice private area, yet close to route 28. Nice rooms with reading areas, and plenty of reading materials. The Cape Cod Creamery is just down the street on Route 28. If you want a nice relaxing stay at Cape Cod I would highly recommend this cottage on Long Pond .

A Great Place to Get Engaged

  • 5 of 5

We found Long Pond Cottage clean and inviting upon our arrival. The decor was playful and very Cape Cod. In other words, delightful! Was impressed with the care and thought the owner put into making our stay comfortable and relaxing and creating a charming home away from home. The location is ideal, centrally located to all the must-see attractions and Routes 6, 6A and 28.

Churchill found the backyard exciting, to say the least. So many new things to investigate! The area was secure and dog friendly as well.

We look forward to visiting again to celebrate the anniversary of our Big Event

Lovely place. Clean, very cosy and friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this summer in this lovely house. Very clean and well accommodated, within walking distance of Long Pond for a swim. Much information about Cape Cod was available and we loved all the trips! After the first week the cleaning team came. Very professional people! With a bike you can be on the beach in 10 minutes or make use of the bike trail.

We recommend this place to all our friends!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have you and your family in from the Netherlands for 2 weeks! It's a very special place (Cape Cod) and I'm thrilled that you had the luxury of time to really get to know our little corner of heaven!!! I know that you said you always go to new places each August, but maybe a tradition might be started, and we get you back for another visit in the future.

Long Pong Girls Week July 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our girls week. Me, my sister and my two daughters had a fun week at this super cute and very accommodating cottage. The location was right in the middle of everything and we found it easy to travel each day to a new town and explore all that Cape Cod has to offer. The house had everything we needed and more; private space for everyone yet space to gather and hang out. The well equipped kitchen and fenced in yard with grill allowed us to share several family meals and pick our feet up after a long day of checking out the sights. Can't wait to come back!
