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

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 Wareham
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

Everything We Needed & Everything We Love
Awesome visit at this Cozy Cottage on the pond. We came to visit from Florida and found this place to be nothing short of perfect. The place had everything we needed and everything we love. A cute cozy place with an awesome kitchen modern bath and comfortable bed. The owners live next door and were very helpful with local info and suggestions on what to see and where to visit. The outside area features include a great fireplace which was great for a fire with some drinks after a day of sightseeing. We can’t wait to plan our next trip to stay. Thank you Ron and Karen for making us feel more at home than we ever have on a vacation. You guys were GREAT!!!

Great spot on a quiet little pond. The cottage was small but perfect for the two of us. The outdoor firepit area was excellent. The pond was crystal clear and we enjoyed swimming and kayaking. The owners were very accommodating and were ok with us having a family cookout as well. We were very pleased with the overall experience. Thank you!
Amazing Summer - July/Aug 2018
We had an incredible stay at this picturesque cottage! The setting is serene and beautiful. The fishing and swimming were great. The location is ideal, with easy access to restaurants, nature walks and tourist attractions. After a day of sightseeing, it’s great to come back and relax by the pond to watch the setting sun. Ron and Karen’s thoughtful hospitality was greatly appreciated. We’re looking forward to returning next summer!
Wonderful weekend at the Cozy Cottage
Spent a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend at the Cozy Cottage. The cottage is very clean and inviting. We enjoyed peaceful mornings, drinking our coffee, while sitting by the pond. My Husband spent all day Saturday fishing on the pond and caught half a dozen bass. We ended the day sitting by the outdoor fireplace and watching the owls in the trees. We also enjoyed a beautiful hike in nearby Myles Standish State Forrest. I have not been so relaxed in months. I hope to be able to stay again in the future.
Perfect peacefull couple's get away
I rented this cottage for my brother and his wife who are expecting their 4th baby in December. I stayed home with the kids, yikes! ;) They said it was absolutely perfect! It was comfortable, cozy and clean. I found the owners to be extremely helpful, quick to respond and very pleasant to deal with. My sis in law plastered pictures all over face book and they are telling their friends about this lovely little cottage. Very reasonably priced, just can't say enough good things about the place or the people who own it. Thank you so much for accommodating my family and thank you for sharing your little slice of tranquility!
