Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful stay at The Pond House. After all day trips, we were always glad to return to Swan Pond. Henry (The big, welcoming swan) was an extra joy! Will miss the swans and views.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The pond house is absolutely beautiful, very comfortable and well furnished. The decking area overlooking the pond is the perfect spot to relax, and the views over the lake are stunning. The location is also great for exploring the many beaches and attractions of Cape Cod.

Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The Pond House was everything promised, and the owners were very accommodating! It so well captures the New England and Cape Cod character. The central location on the Cape makes for easy access for everything we wanted to see and do during our week there. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated, and the beautiful grounds were well-kept, with ample and convenient parking. The well-equipped kitchen made it easy to prepare simple meals when we chose to do so; the proximity to several excellent restaurants was also appreciated. The well-furnished Pond-side deck was a wonderful place to relax in the abundant sunshine with which we were blessed, while observing several species of birds. We would readily use this property again for a retreat on the Cape.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review, Robert! It was a pleasure to host your stay on Cape Cod. Having lived there and enjoyed the house myself for some time, I am always excited to share the simplicity of the Pond House and the outdoors beauty of the area with others. I hope visit our amazing Cape Cod again soon.

Fantastic, spacious, perfectly well situated, with all the facilities we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We came from England for 10 days in August. Myself,my husband and our 11 and 13 year old. We loved the house, it was just what we wished for. Very clean and well maintained. It had all the facilities needed, the kitchen had all the utensils required for our stay. Having a dishwasher a large fridge with a freezer and washing machine and tumble dryer were perfect.

We spent many evenings on the deck eating our Bbq in the sunshine.

The location was perfect, very central for touring, nothing was too far away.

We are now saving for next year!

A wonderful spot exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen and Tom were gracious hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. Their home is a wonderful, idyllic place with lots of water fowl and dozens of swans.

We'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely, peaceful spot close to everything but without the bustle and noise.

Many thanks for the hospitality.

Your lovely, peaceful spot awaits. :)
