Waterfront Cabin on Long Pond

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

A simple one bedroom cabin on the water.

This charming cabin sits on the Long Pond shore front. It is one of a cluster of four cabins (the original tiny houses!), each renting separately. We have worked hard to preserve the unique, 1930's fish camp character. If you are looking to commune with nature, seek a simple respite from modern life or just want to enjoy Long Pond, this is for you.

We call this cabin, Dick's Maggot (that is the name of an English Country Dance, not a bug). It has a shorefront bedroom with queen bed, a sitting room with couch, chairs and working fireplace and a bathroom with old fashioned claw foot tub that is fitted with a hand shower. You can sit in the bath and look out onto the pond. New in 2017: we are installing a mini-bar with sink, microwave, mini fridge, toaster oven and stove top. We will also be adding a grill and picnic table outside and improving the small screened porch that looks onto the lake. The work, which is beginning in spring of 2017, will be ready by Memorial Day. Sorry, our pictures won't show the improvements until then.

Dick's Maggot is a stone's throw away from it's neighbor, but carefully arranged to give a sense of privacy. The waterfront with small dock sits just next to this cabin and is shared between the four cabins.

We're at the end of a private, sandy road and located next to Pinewoods Camp. When the camp is in session from mid June through Labor Day you can hear their music until 11:00 PM each night. In early June and September, when this cabin is most available, the pond is wonderfully quiet. You can enjoy the area's wildlife, swim in the clear waters, hike miles of nature trails or use it as a jump-off point to explore the Cape and Boston.

About Susan Conant

We are a family of five siblings, one mom and six grandchildren. Many of us live in the Boston area and spend our summer weekends on the property.

Susan Conant purchased this cabin in 1930

Why Susan Conant chose South Shore Massachusetts

The property was given to our grandparents in the 1940's and has been passed through two generations. This property is a part of our bones. It is both a struggle and a labor of love to maintain the historic, rustic character of our structures. We all grew up here and know every root, tree, bug and plant. There are home movies of three generations of babies playing on our beach. and we all know the stories -- like how our dad knocked a pillar down while learning to drive.

What makes this cabin unique

There are rare places in our modern world where time stands still. This is one. We have let a few tinges of modernity filter through -- we do provide basic internet, electricity and hot water -- but not TV. It is a place to turn off the digital world and experience the simple life -- nature, swimming in a clean natural lake, hiking beautiful trails, sitting on the porch, taking in the view, quiet nights, stars, rain pattering on the roof .......

Our location is great for touring southeastern Massachusetts. Many of our guests stay with us and visit the sights in historic Plymouth, Cape Cod and Boston. But we prefer to stay put and enjoy the local natural amenities: amazing swimming and water activities, hikes through cranberry bogs, perfect mountain biking roads and solitude.
