Pond,, Canoe, Fishing Pole....This property has it all!

Get away from it all. Start your day with a stroll through the adjacent conservation land, or try fishing for trout, bass or blue gill. Later, indulge yourself with a dip from your private beach on crystal clear Bakers Pond. If you are interested in wildlife or romance, then perhaps you'll launch the canoe located at the water's edge.. In nearby town you will find shopping, quaint dining, and cape cod's pristine Nauset beach. Rock harbor sunsets are golden, and if youre lucky you may catch a free game of baseball from the cape cod league. At the end of the day you can dine on your private deck overlooking the pond.

Canoe And Fish From Your Private Beach On Bakers Pond
average rating of 3.5 based on 2 reviews

Nice pond views, but strong animal/urine smell.

  • 2 of 5

Overall, I would not recommend this house to others. When we pulled in the driveway, the pond behind the house looked very pretty. Once we went inside, we were overwhelmed by a strong smell of animals and/or urine. There is a thick, shaggy, old carpet throughout the house, which probably contributed to the smell. It would be nice if the sliding glass doors had screen doors to get fresh air, but they didn't. We bought odor eaters and scented candles but nothing worked.

The other problem we noticed right away was there was basically no water pressure, just a drip. We contacted Linda and she had a plumber come out the next day to repair it. She communicated well with us and was apologetic. She also refunded us for one night's worth, which we thought was very fair. While the plumber was there in the basement, we saw there was a washer/dryer down there. However, the basement was locked and inaccessible to us. Having access to the washer/dryer would've been sooo convenient!

The kitchen and bathrooms are functional but very outdated. The main floor doesn't have A/C and it was very hot during our stay. The heat mixed with the nauseating animal smell caused us to leave a day early. We just couldn't take it anymore. This house may work for animal lovers, but it definitely wasn't a good choice for us.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for your experience. Just wanted to let you know that I have disconnected from the well, and am now connected to town water, with a significant improvement in water pressure. I have also removed all of the first floor carpeting, and am no longer renting to people with pets. I appreciate your feedback. Thank you

Lovely location, comfortable accommodations, beautiful pond, convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second summer at this well-located, dog-friendly, comfortable home. The pond was delightful for swimming and kayaking, and the dog park next door was perfect for a daily walk (along with other dog parks throughout Orleans). It was nice to hear the birds chirping every morning from the porch. It was a hot week so A/C in the bedrooms, a fan downstairs, and good ventilation were a plus! The piano was there for fun on rainy days, along with lots of games and puzzles. My teen, my dog, and I had a lovely stay.
