About the area

Shubael is one of Cape Cod's finest fishing ponds and is stocked with brown and rainbow trout, as well as bass. It is conveniently located just minutes from Exit 5 and is convenient to shopping in Cotuit and Centerville, Hyannis is 10 - 15 minutes. Craigville and Sandy Neck beaches are minutes away. To maintain safety and the peacefulness of the pond, boats are restricted to a maximum speed of 10 mph and are mainly used for fishing.

“Fantastic Rental”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

We rented this place for two weeks, almost a year in advance. We wanted a nice spot with lots of space and easy water access for the kids! The pond of water that the house sits on is calm, clean and our kids took full advantage of swimming, canoeing and kayaking. It was nice to just sit on the deck and let them go! The house itself was very spacious and had every amenity that we needed. The hosts were very attentive to our needs and always responded quickly with questions. They were VERY helpful. The ONLY thing I would mention is that the advertised electric fence for the dog. It was working, yes. But the collars that work with the fence are NOT provided. SO we showed up with only our bark collar. SO maybe the hosts should change the advertising of that feature to state that you must have a collar that works with their fence in order to be able to use it. Also, they should name the type of fence. Otherwise, I doubt people will show up with the right collar. We looked up specs on Shubael Pond and found out that you can only have a boat that is MAX 10 horsepower on the pond. Neighbors told us that we could still use our boat to troll out and fish, which we did very successfully, but that they did not want any water skiing or tubing on the pond. Understandable. And we were grateful that is was so safe for kids. We WILL definately be requesting to rent again! A++

Owner's reply: Thank you Trina, we are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your vacation at 140 Willimantic. We appreciate your comment about the invisible fence and, upon reflection, realize that it probably should not be offered as an amenity since invisible fences generally require significant dog training to successfully contain a dog. You have brought up another good point in that our description needs to include the information about boating limitations on the pond. Thank you!

“Great Find”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2016

Thanks Ted & Diane for sharing your home with us. We had a fantastic time. All the beds were very comfortable. It was great having coffee on the deck every morning. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly ask for. We enjoyed using the canoe and kayak. All the beds were very comfortable. We all slept all week. Our grandkids loved the ducks. My granddaughter even caught a perch. It was also great that we were able to bring our dogs with us. It was also great to have a grill. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer available and also to have linens available. That is a huge plus. I can understand why your place books up so quickly. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with our family.

Owner's reply: We are delighted that you enjoyed your vacation at our home on the pond, and thank you for sharing!

“Perfect Vacation Retreat”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2015

We had a wonderful experience at this comfy home on Shubael Pond in Marston Mills. It had all the amenities of home plus a lovely view of Shubael Pond from the sunroom and deck. You could walk down the deck stairs and across the lawn to fish or swim to your hearts content. This home is also very conveniently located near many local beaches, stores, and restaurtants. A great place for a family vacation!

Owner's reply: And we couldn't ask for better guests! They left our home in immaculate condition.
