About The Owner

John and I were truely blessed to find this paradise on Cape Cod. We are confident that our renters to our lovely home will enjoy the splendor and natural beauty of the National Seashore, its beautiful beaches and the peacefulness of our wonderful fresh water pond.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Cape Cod

John, as a child traveled every summer since six months old to Cape Cod with his family. I was born on the Cape in Bourne and spent my toddler years in Truro. After marrying, now 27 years ago, we have realized our dream of a beautiful home on the Cape together to share with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

'On Depot Pond' is unique in that it is large enough to accommate a family group in shared spaces including our deck and screened porch on a one acre property. But, at the end of the day, with three distinct areas, the family is allowed to spend time alone in comfort...lots of TV's, places to relax and for the kids to play without everyone having to be on top of one another. Great for the parents plus the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our time at the Cape. Your place was just perfect for us. It was amazing to have the outside coming through the screened porch floor and windows as we could be cozy inside. Did a lot of swimming and kayaking (I couldn't believe how something so much fun could be so good for me.) My husband and son caught fish w/special hooks that allowed them to let the fish go without huring them. My son caught a beautiful bass; he was so happy to show it off to his boys. We'd love to rent your house for another lovely week next summer.

Wonderful for all.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house in September 2015 for a week, with two other couples. The 6 of us had more than enough room to enjoy our time together but also have private time to read and relax alone. The screened in porch off the master bedroom is a beautiful room. We enjoyed kayaking on the pond, I also took a swim. The house is an easy bike ride to the National Seashore Visitors center and to Coast Guard Beach. The Cape Cod rail-trail is close by also.

This house is a super place to accommodate an extended family or several couples. The lovely lawn and gardens welcome you to sit outside and relax by the pond. We have rented many VRBO place thought the USA and this home is certainly a 5 star place.

Sibling Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Depot Pond for a long weekend. The house was such a good size for 8 of us, and equipped with everything we needed. Decor was beautiful with such attention to detail. The spacious deck overlooking the pond was an idyllic setting. We all agreed that we would love to come back.

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Depot Pond two Summers in a row now and we think it is fantastic. The house is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The location is spectacular, situated on a fresh water kettle pond and on the Bike Trail with easy access to ocean and bay beaches. I can't imagine a better place to stay.

This is a fantastic place...

This is a fantastic place. The house is beautiful, clean and nicely decorated. The location is perfect. Depot pond is ideal. We especially enjoyed using the sunfish, kayaks and canoes. The bike trail is close by, as are bay and ocean beaches.

We stayed at the cottage ...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage the last week in July. It was wonderful, worth every penny. Everything we needed was there. The canoe and kayaks were great. We're definitely looking to come back again next year.
