The most exquisite vacation property you will ever find! This was our home for 4 years and during that time we made many dramatic improvements in the property. The cottage is located on a 14-acre pristine pond, stocked with trout and bass, and perfect for swimming or just sitting and enjoying the tranquility from the dock or the deck. Every room has been refurbished and modernized with the finest quality products. The kitchen features state of the art appliances, Wolf stove and granite countertops. The two bedrooms and baths are elegant and modern and there are wall-mounted Samsung TV's in both bedrooms and the living room. The windows overlooking the pond and deck are spectacular and provide a panoramic view of nature at its finest. The cottage also features a gas fireplace, central air, and wireless internet. The grounds surrounding the property have been similarly well cared for. Flowers, shrubs, grass and stone walls. All of this plus a location that puts you in the heart of one of the most beautiful spots on the planet! You can enjoy the sunshine, and the surrounds on the deck overlooking the pond. You can kayak (three beauties provided) or take the canoe around the pond. At the bait shop around the corner you'll find everything you need to take advantage of the great fishing right off your dock.

About Evelene Lakis
I grew up in Ireland and moved to Cape Cod in 1986. After living & working in several states over the course of twenty years, I retuned to the Cape when my husband and I married in 2005. My husband has lived on Cape Cod for the past 40 years and says he would never live anywhere else! Between us, we have 6 grown children and a lovely little dog aptly named Lucky! My husband Steve and I work full time on the Cape and live in Yarmouthport.
Evelene Lakis purchased this House in 2007
Why Evelene Lakis chose Forestdale
With so many choice out there, why stay at our cottage? There are a few good reasons. As I mentioned before, this was our home for four years, so it is not your typical rental property. We have all of the creature comforts of home; comfortable beds, gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors, central AC, modern bathrooms and the list goes on. In addition to this, you have an outdoor shower, full deck overlooking the water, covered porch, fire pit, gas BBQ grill and of course the pond - great for swimming and fishing!
What makes this House unique
Swimming, Fishing, Canoeing, and Barbecuing Pimlico Pond is a pristine “kettle pond,” formed in the last ice age. It’s perfect for swimming, fishing (at least 4 varieties of trout!), and boating. Feel free to avail yourself of the canoe, three kayaks and fishing rods in the shed. (There’s a great tackle and bait store just off 130 heading to Sandwich Village. http://www.forestdalebaitandtackle.com/index.html)

This was the prettiest little house we have ever rented. Everything was high end, appliances, TVs, sound system, lighting package, pots and pans,
fireplace, bedding. But the best part was the great view of Pimlico pond. Watching the sun rise with the fire going and a cup of coffee was so amazingly relaxing. We were on the cape for a family reunion, so it wasn’t my first choice for time of year, it was cold and rainy the whole time. The house more than made up for the weather! It’s perfect for 1 or 2 couples but no more. Be aware that it is a full story down from the parking pad to the house through a terraced garden,WITHOUT A RAILING. This can be difficult for some older people. The steps are well lit at night though. We will definitely stay here again when visiting family. It is a gem!
We’re so glad you enjoyed the cottage! Thank you for your review and the mention of no railing. We always make some sort of improvement every year to the cottage so a railing sounds like a good idea for next year.
Looking forward to having you back again.
All the best, Evelene
Quiet, relaxing retreat!
We had a wonderful stay at Pimlico Cottage! We were about 15 minutes to the beach. We had had all the comforts of home. It was very private, clean, updated, nicely decorated, and comfortable! It was steps to the water for fishing, swimming, canoeing/kayaking. It was extremely quiet except for the birds and wildlife. The home had good quality water and water pressure. We had a few cooler days which provided the opportunity to use the gas fireplace which quickly took off the chill. The fire pit for s’mores was an enjoyable evening activity for the family. The owner was very responsive for any questions. I highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing trip to the Cape!
Too good to be true!
We absolutely loved our stay at this lovely house. It had everything anyone could ever want. The water views were beautiful. We so enjoyed morning coffee out by the pond and
wine in the evening on the upper porch. The birds were so entertaining. We had a family of swans that visited us each morning. We watched a bird of prey swoop down and catch a fish. He had more success than we did in the canoe. The house is very tastefully decorated. We debated all week if the owner is an artist or if they had it professionally decorated. This was the nicest house we ever rented.
Superb. Every detail is accounted for.
This is a fabulous place. So peaceful, great views. You’ll love it. They have clearly put a great deal of thought into what people want in a vacation rental and have everything covered.
Beautiful inside and out
We really enjoyed our stay. The home was beautifully decorated inside and out. We appreciated all of the conveniences provided. There was nothing that we needed and could not find. It was a very peaceful setting. We will return.
This home has everything that you need. The only thing we had to bring was our clothing and groceries. The home is absolutely beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We had so much fun fishing. Our grandson visited and went out on the canoe with his dad and then went swimming using the swing rope. I think he loved the outdoor shower the most! It was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We loved it so much that we have booked another week for next year. Thank you so much!
Sandwich is the oldest town on the Cape and the gateway to the Cape. The village itself, just about 5 miles down Rte. 130 (right at the lights) is just perfect! The main street is dotted with restaurants for casual or evening dining, and all manner of delightful shops. Check out the Daniel Webster Inn dining. The Tavern is a good stop for a beer and a sandwich and the restaurant features fine dining. There’s also the Brown Jug (our favorite) for a great sandwich and glass of wine. And for a touch of England and Ireland try the Sandwich Tea Shoppe. They serve breakfast and lunch and feature a wide assortment of teas and sandwiches. We also strongly recommend you put the Heritage Plantation on your to-do list. The flower gardens, local and exotic trees, plus the barn featuring a wide assortment of vintage cars, is not to be missed. Finally, just across from Heritage Plantation you’ll find the Sandwich Glass Factory. Dating back to the 1700’s, it features a museum and fine gift shop. Sandwich Beaches We have great beaches in Sandwich. Just outside of the village you can park and stroll down the boardwalk to the Sandwich public beach. For more information, log on the Town of Sandwich website at http://www.sandwichmass.org/DepartmentDetail.asp?ID=49. Mashpee Commons If you’re looking for a wider variety of shopping and dining, plus movie theaters and bowling, plan to visit Mashpee Commons. It’s an outdoor, very well laid out, shopping center. Plymouth & Plimoth Plantation (a living history museum) Just overt the Sagamore Bridge about a half and hour. You can explore the town of Plymouth. Plymouth was the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of the famous ship the Mayflower. Plymouth is where New England was first established. It is the oldest municipality in New England and one of the oldest in the United States. While you're there, Plimoth Plantation is a must see. www.plimoth.org Falmouth & Woods Hole Also worth exploring is Woods Hole and Falmouth. The village of Falmouth is charming and just outside of Falmouth center you’ll see signs to Woods Hole, home of the world-famous Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and the Martha’s Vineyard Ferry! (If you have the time, you should take a day trip over to the Vineyard. Woods Hole is a great destination if you want to enjoy outside dining on the harbor. For a more city feel (as city as we can get on the Cape!), plan a stroll down Main St. in nearby Hyannis (exit 6 off of Rte 6). Shops and restaurants galore and for the history buffs in the family, there’s the JFK museum. President Kennedy and the entire clan lived in nearby Hyannisport and we claim him as a native son. The Old Kings Highway (Rte. 6A) We have one big recommendation—take a leisurely drive down 6A. This is one of the prettiest country roads in all of America and you can follow it down the spine of the Cape, hugging the bay side of the Cape, as far as Provincetown. The easiest way to get there is to head north on Rte. 130 to Quaker Meeting House Way, take a right on Quaker and then go straight for about 4 miles, through the lights, past the highway entrances until you get to 6A. Take a right and go as far as you like. As you head “down Cape” you will pass through picturesque villages, wonderful antique shops, historic Cape Cod Captain’s homes, and just about every left turn will take you to the ocean! Whale watches If you’re interested in seeing whales up close and personal, then make your way to Barnstable village (follow 6A or take exit 6 on the mid-Cape and take a left to 6A).
