Overview

About the property

Perfect place for a private couple's retreat yet still close to everything.

Looking for the perfect spot for a quiet couple's retreat? Spend the day swinging gently in your hammock with a great book, kayak out to your favorite fishing spot, take a quick drive to one of many Cape Cod beaches or take your bikes out for a ride on the Cape Cod Canal. At the end of your day, fire up the grill or find a great place to eat out. Whether fancy or casual is your style, you'll find some of the best restaurants within a very quick drive. As the sun sets, fire up the massive outdoor stone fireplace and snuggle up while toasting marshmallows and watching the sun set over the pond. And finally, drift off to peaceful sleep, waking recharged and refreshed to do it all again.

Blackmore Pond is known for being one of the cleanest ponds in Massachusetts. It is well cared for by private association who rigorously tests water to maintain the strictest purity standards for swimmers. You will be assured a quiet experience as motors larger than 4.5 hp are prohibited. The pond is well stocked with large mouth bass for the avid fisherman, and plenty of songbirds and turtles for the casual nature observer.

Wooded walking trails are nearby, great shopping is 5 minutes away at Wareham Crossing, or go-carts, mini-golf and Water Wizz within a fifteen minute drive. Cape Cod Canal is just 20 minutes away, and all that Cape Cod has to offer just beyond that. Do it all, or do nothing. It's your choice!

To help you enjoy your stay, the cottage has amenities including a full galley-style kitchen complete with full-size stove, fridge and dishwasher as well as coffee maker and microwave, free wifi internet, premier package cable TV, washer & dryer, the tiled bathroom features a large shower and granite countertop (towels provided), one queen size bed with fresh linens provided, as well as a sofa bed in the living area. The cottage is heated and air conditioned and has ceiling fans.

Outside amenities include an amazing outdoor stone fireplace, two kayaks and a sandy beach area with lounge chairs.

The cottage has been our little treasure and we look forward to sharing it with you!

About Ron and Karen DeSousa

We purchased the cottage in 2012 as a summer retreat, but were soon to find that we couldn't bear to leave the Pond when winter came. As fate would have it, the house next door came on the market and we decided to buy it so that we never had to leave. So now our little cottage paradise is available to share with you! We hope you love it as much as we do!

Why Ron and Karen DeSousa chose SE Massachusetts & Buzzard's Bay

Blackmore Pond is a little slice of heaven. Totally private and quiet, yet still very close to everything. It's the perfect place to get away, while still being able to go out for a night on the town! The neighborhood is made up of long time Pond residents, most of whom have had family here for generations.

What makes this cottage unique

Charming little cottage offering privacy and quiet on a pond known for it's clean clear water for swimming and it's great bass fishing. Close to Wareham Crossing shopping, historic Plymouth and the beautiful beaches of Cape Cod.

Notes:
Cottage was originally built in 1920 as one of many buildings that served the summer camp. It served as the infirmary, fireplace gathering area and water sports hub. Next door is the mess hall building to one side and the camp chapel on the other. Most of the original cabins are gone, but a few are still visible in the neighborhood.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Such a sweet space! Far enough away, yet close enough to all conveniences. Much attention to detail both in and out! Our favorite is the huge outdoor fireplace...was truly the highlight! Lots of wonderful memories!

Welcoming and Personal

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for me. Most everything you would need was provided for in advance. Clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious, the outside fireplace more than one could ask for, the proximity to the beach and water was very close to the cottage. Sat outside each morning having breakfast at the table provided in front of the outdoor fireplace admiring the pond and the morning sun. Will return if I possibly can.

So relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time staying at the cottage. The bed was comfy. The decor was cheerful. HBO was a treat! And there's nothing like sitting by the lake at the end of the day and watching the sky. It was just perfect for unwinding.

Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved how close it was to family and shops but how rural and private it felt while we were on the property. The lake is pristine! Kayaking was so fun. Lovely breeze most days. It has a very well equipped kitchen so we were able to have family over for a great BBQ. (They named it the most relaxed spot in Wareham.) The outside fireplace is beautiful. The owners are very nice and very helpful. The neighbors were great too!

It is a terrific place for a couple....very cozy and comfortable.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage very comfortable and cozy. It is very modern and well maintained. Kitchen and bathroom are well stocked. The air-conditioning was a bonus, as the weather was very warm. The yard has a lovely seating area by the outdoor fire place. We also enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the sunset. The location of the cottage is ideal for visiting Cape Cod, Southern Massettusetts and Rhode Island.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan another visit to this lovely cottage in the near future.
