Lakefront (Wequaquet), custom-built family home with 2536 sqft of living area on a 24000 sqft lot. This house has a front to back living room with fireplace,raised panels and a dignified den with a granite fireplace, cathedral ceilings,and a large kitchen with new appliances (induction cooktop) with a family breakfast dining area with large windows with the view of the lake. Three bathrooms remodeled in 2014. All three levels are equiped with central air conditioning system. In summer, the sun shines on this lot all day long, and spectacular views are evident throughout the home year-round. A generous 2nd floor and a sprawling, finished walkout basement with five rooms including 3 bedrooms, a full 2nd kitchen, a full bath,and screened patio. The lake is the largest in Cape Cod and is great for different water sport activities (Swimming, Fishing, speed boat, water skiing, jet ski). You can swim in the lake right in front of the backyard. Two minutes walk to beautiful tennis courts and sandy beach for children. One mile to ocean. 5 minutes drive to Cape Cod Mall and shopping center.
A group of friends gathered here for a girls weekend getaway. We had plenty of space to sleep with lots of privacy (bedrooms are spread among 3 floors). The driveway was large enough to accommodate many cars, which was an added bonus. We spent one evening having a meal prepared in our kitchen by a professional chef. The food was effortlessly made and set up in a perfect way to enjoy indoors and out on the expansive decks. A few of us used the kayaks around sunset, and all of us (I think we were 15) gathered at the dock for a photo. The dock easily held all of us. I would absolutely return here and recommend this home for large groups of friends or for several families to enjoy some time on Cape Cod!
Our family of 14 thoroughly enjoyed this lovely home on the lake. We have always stayed at a place on the ocean so this was a change for us and we were a bit leery to be on a lake but it turned out to be great. The lake beach is an easy 5 minute walk and the ocean is a short drive. Plenty of beach sand to enjoy and the raft was fun for all. The house itself was very clean and well stocked with supplies. Since we are a large group, we eat in for all our meals and there is plenty of room for multiple cooks. It took a bit to figure out the cook top but once we did we were off and running! The 3 refrigerators worked out well and we stored all the cold drinks in one of them which meant the main fridge was left closed so the food stuff stayed cold and fresh. The back deck was the scene for our evening cocktails and appetizers and we ate every evening meal outside - no bugs, either! We had family ping pong tournaments and the tennis courts were a boon. Close to a big name grocery store so that wasn't a hassle as traffic on the Cape can be fearsome.
We opted not to have Marie provide linens because there was no way we could have washed everything and be out by the allotted time (if I recall correctly there was an extra charge to have the owners wash linens and towels upon departure). The only drawbacks were the dock, which needs to be reinforced because it is not safe for more than 1 or 2 people to walk on carefully and the sofa bed mattress which was very uncomfortable. Perhaps a good mattress topper would help the situation.
All in all, we were very pleased with this property and would rent again. The 4 star rating is due because of the sofa bed and dock condition, otherwise this property is 5 star!
We rented the home for the week of July 4th along with 8 of our friends who get together every two years for a reunion. This was by far the best house we've rented. The house is beautifully located on Wequaquet Lake only 10 minutes or so from the Hyannis.The three levels accommodated us wonderfully and there was plenty of room for get-togethers and private time. There was plenty of room for family dinners in both the kitchen and living room and the main living room was cozy. The owners were welcoming and made sure we were well taken care of. We will definitely be requesting another week in 2017. Minor suggestions for improvements would be a large electric griddle and/or baking sheets. We didn't love the induction stove and some of the pots and pans didn't seem to work with it, but the positives (like plenty of room, 3 fridges and AC) far outweighed the negatives.
Our family has been gathering at this cozy large home for several summers. It is right on Lake Wequaquet with a sandy beach and 2 tennis courts a short walk away through a beautiful neighborhood. Many shops, restaurants, the grocery store, fish market, the quaint village of Centerville and Craigville Beach are minutes away. The Lake is very clean and provides many activities for all...fishing, swimming & boating...and the perfect spot for viewing the setting sun ! The yard is spacious so throwing a football or a frisbee is easy to do.
The 3 levels in the house offer space with privacy. The main level has a modern eat-in kitchen with an island, a large dining area and spacious living room all overlooking the lake through large windows. Both the kitchen and a den have sliding doors that open to a large deck. It is so nice to have linens and many other items provided by the very nice owners. The three full baths have all recently been remodeled.
This family vacation is the highlight of the year for us and we look forward to continuing the tradition for many years to come! We couldn't imagine a better spot !
What a beautiful spot and so convenient to everything! The property is absolutely beautiful and tucked in a quiet and lovely neighborhood.
There is plenty of room for family and friends, any given night we had 9-12 people staying and there was space for everyone. The layout of the house is spectacular, and is set up so that each room is secluded from the others, with only 2 bedrooms on each floor of living space.
We are already planning our return trip for next season!
