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
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.
I've rented close to 20 houses on VRBO/HomeAway and Scott's cottage in South Yarmouth may be my all-time favorite. Loved the layout, decor, comfort level, fenced yard, great location, and especially how welcoming Scott is towards his canine guests (including dog beds, crates and blankets for the furniture!) Clancy and I enjoyed trips to the National Seashore, meals from Arthur's Clam Shack in Eastham, pies from Marion's Pie Shop in Chatham (cannot overstate how incredible these were), and just chilling in the family room or backyard. We hope to be back with more friends next year!
This was our second time staying at Long Pond Cottage and it once again did not disappoint us. It definitely gave us the feeling of home away from home. It's location was perfect for us as we attended a wedding in Chatham and made many quick visits to the beach, taking advantage of beautiful late-September weather. The layout of Scott's home worked perfectly for us and was equally convenient to manage the dogs over the long weekend. Scott was very helpful with restaurant and travel logistics. We'll definitely keep this on our regular go to rental list. Thanks Scott.
I have been renting houses on the cape for 20 years. I can honestly say this is the best house I've ever rented, and I can't wait to rent it again next year. The house is in a lovely neighborhood and a 5 min walk to Long Pond. My kids and my dog loved swimming in the pond and playing on the playground. It is a nice quiet neighborhood with pretty homes and friendly neighbors. It's a 1 min drive to route 28, so easy access wherever you are headed. If you have kids there is plenty to do within 10 mins of the house - beaches, arcades, golf, ice cream, shopping, etc. It's a great location.
The house is roomy, clean and I personally really liked how it was decorated. It felt like a beach house, but it wasn't cluttered with too much beachy stuff. Everything is well organized and easy to fine. Scott is on top of everything. I am pretty picky, but I honestly can't say anything negative about the place. The best part was that my 11 year old son who hates renting houses (why would we stay in a house smaller than ours that doesn't have any of our stuff?) actually enjoyed himself and wants to go back!!
Scott, what a relaxing and enjoyable home for a vacation, it was more then we could have imagined, everything for a kitchen was available for all of our cooking needs.
The decor just lovely, as well as your photos on the walls.we never made it to the estate sale,but thank you for that info. There was so much to do, the lake, the beachs. Shopping and more.My granddaughter is still talking about the vacation house she was so happy , we will definitely be back ,Thank you again and I will be in touch about next summer.
, Peace, Lori, & Bob ⛱⛱⛱
Property was clean, spacious and charming. Highly reccomend and would be willing to stay again. Location was perfect for closest beach and town.
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!
