Guestbook comments from the owner

FROM OUR GUESTBOOK: We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful and peaceful "Pond House". We will never forget the sunrise our first morning when we were sitting on your deck. It is just amazing! Your house has all the comforts of home and you were always very helpful. Thank you for all the fresh flowers and especially the cute little gifts for our daughters. They just loved them. We hope to come back one day!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Great layout, clean and pretty much everything you would need for your stay is provided. It fely very homely and we relaxed as soon as we entered the house. Kathlene was great too. Quick to respond for bookings and any questions we had. We would highly recommend the Pond House and West Yarmouth is a great spot on Cape Cod if you want to explore as it's fairly central to everything. Thank you Kathlene.

2 weeks of relaxation on Swan Pond

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was perfect! We enjoyed the entire 2 weeks. We arrived to the inviting Pond House with the sheer curtains blowing to the music of Bob Marley! What a treat! The place has everything including a pizza cutter. Our family enjoyed openess of the house, onto the gorgeous pond. We had many visitors which included our 50 something friends to our daughters college friends, everyone had a great time. The location is superb! We toured the entire Cape but loved coming back to the Pond House! The Swans were always there to welcome us! Kathlene is a pleasure to work with, she was so pleasant as is her home! Thank you!

Home away from home and MORE....

  • 4 of 5

The Pond House is delightful. We are from the DC area and this was our first trip to Cape Cod. My family which includes my husband and 16- year daughter loved this house and quickly settled into a routine. There is a beautiful deck overlooking Swan Pond where we ate most evenings after grilling fish on the gas grill. My family learned to kayak on the calm pond and usually went out twice a day. The house is centrally located with easy access to P-Town and the national seashore beaches or to Hyannis with a ferry to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The house is nicely decorated and clean. Has everything a family needs which includes cleaning supplies, toilet paper and the basics. The listing description is very accurate and more than met our expectations. The owners checked in with us and always available to answer questions. They even gave us a "welcome" gift. We hope to return to the Pond House in the near future.

Doesn't Get Any Better!

  • 5 of 5

Thjere wasn't anything about The Pond House that wasn't PERFECT!

This charming but spacious cottage is beautifully set on a large, meticulously groomed property with a gorgeous deck that features a 180 degree view of the water. In fact, you can see water from almost every window which made it feel like living on a house boat!

Kathlene and Tom lovingly care for this home and provided every imaginable detail to make our stay comfortable, convenient and memorable. The kitchen was well-stocked, the entire home spotless and the decor was simple and serene.

Our favorite Cape activities included kayaking on the pond, sampling all the lovely beaches from our ideal Mid-Cape location all the way to Provincetown, whale watching out of Barnstable Harbor, and dining from cheap to chic, including Kreme and Kone for chowdah, Squires in Chatham for a fish sandwich and The Old Yarmouth Inn for... short ribs and mashed potatoes!

The best part of the experience was knowing that we had trustworthy, gracious hosts that made every step along the way a pleasure. In fact, a gift bag with a surprise memento and loads of helpful literature

were waiting for us when we arrived...such a nice touch. We hope to return and highly recommend it for anyone seeking the comforts of home in a peaceful, waterfront getaway, surrounded by nature.
