Overview

About the property

A 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 space is for you.

This cabin (we call it Dick's after our grandfather) has a recently renovated shorefront room with queen bedroom on one side and kitchenette on the other. The other room has a sitting area with couch, chairs and working fireplace and a dining area. The bathroom (with lake view) has an old fashioned claw foot tub that is fitted with a hand shower. You can sit in the bath and look out onto the pond! There is a screened porch with cafe table and chairs and amazing water views. The kitchenette has sink, microwave, mini fridge, toaster oven, induction cook top and plenty of dishes and cookware. Guests have access to a grill and picnic table outside.

Dick's Cabin 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. If you have a larger group, it is possible to rent cabins together for an old-fashioned fish camp experience.

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, 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 .......

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dick's Maggot was so charming - and the lake so beautiful! I was seeking something semi-rustic by the water and this was the perfect find. Susan was great and generous in accommodating my last minute plans and responded quickly to any questions I had. The Conant family has created a beautiful nook along Long Pond...and I hope to be back sometime soon for another peaceful retreat!

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.
