Description from owner

READ THE REVIEWS TO SEE WHAT A PERFECT SPOT THIS IS FOR YOU. QUIET BEACHES, WARM WATERS & ROOM TO MOVE - PICK THE QUIETNESS OF SPRING OR THE WARM WATERS AND BEACHES OF SUMMER

Our home on Long Pond is ready for you to swim, kayak, fish, or bring your own boat.

Cozy home with indoor and outdoor fireplace, large cook-in kitchen, robust sunsets and wrap around deck will help you enjoy the salt air and bright colors of the

Cape. Choose solitude for long beach walks and affordability in the spring & fall or warm tides in the summer season. Anytime is a wonderful time on the Cape and Long Pond. Read our reviews to see what our guests love about our home and Cape.

Wouldn't you rather wake to the sound of the trees and birds than your alarm clock back home? Red flannel hash at Hangar B, cranberry pancakes at Grumpy's, fresh halibut from Breakwater Fish, local fruits from Phoenix Market or Satuckett Farm Stand or coffee ice cream from the Sundae School? You can cook in this family style kitchen or eat out at nearby great eats. Brewster Fish House, Orleans Public House, Fin are all nearby.

Your Cape Cod home has a small sandy beach on beautiful, clear Long Pond, close to bike paths and ocean. Bring your own boat or use our kayaks and canoes. Large deck on the house facing the pond with lots of birds, shade trees and magnificent sunsets over Long Pond- and we mean MAGNIFICENT. Grill out or eat out. Fully equipped home for you and your family. Anchor your boat. Sit on the floating raft on the pond, play ping pong, pool or hop on your bike and take a short ride to the nearly 40 mile long paved Cape Rail Trail. Large, open floor plan with fireplace. The weather is fantastic year round! We are on a hill and have lots of cross ventilation and ceiling fans in most rooms, and AC in second floor bedrooms. Bring your swim suits, a good book and favorite foods to cook; everything else is ready and waiting for you.

We recycle and use pond friendly cleaning products. We support our local resources and are members of Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet Audubon, Cape Cod Natural History Museum and the Friends of Long Pond Association.

“Oasis of Family Fun”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2016

Look no further. This is the home you have been looking for. Our family vacation was pure joy. The kids loved every minute. It was our first family vacation and we wanted to ensure it was a successful one. The biggest comfort being a "first timer" was the frequent communication from the owner keeping us well informed of beach destinations, endless amenities provided at the home, and tips on local restaurants and events. Being next to the lake was wonderful and the kids loved it. They provided all the lake toys you can want such as kayaks, canoes, floaties, beach chairs, life vests, etc. The home is lovely, well kept, fully furnished, well decorated, super clean, and SPACIOUS. Love the master bedroom which includes a full bath and private balcony with a view of the lake. Endless fun with the table tennis and pool table downstairs. Sunsets are beautiful and provide a spectacular view from the living room or from the deck. Be prepared to create wonderful memories here!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Marco and family, for enjoying our home. I hope you bring those delightful children back next year for more lobster!

“Perfect Vacation Home and Location”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

Long Pond on Cape Cod is a wonderful location to have a real vacation. The water is crystal clear, and the surroundings are amazing. Boating, Swimming, Relaxing, and enjoying the beauty of nature is really what Long Pond is all about. This property is located with in a short walk of all that Long Pond has to offer, and yet close to all of the stores that are needed. A close drive to Brewster and to Harwich and Chatham provides all types of activities and entertainment. This property has plenty of kitchen and living areas, and offers three bedrooms with three full bathrooms. A deck overlooks Long Pond, and is situated on a private drive, on a wooded lot. Truly, a home away from home. This property has plenty of on site entertainment for all, with a pool table, Ping-Pong table, air hockey and cable TV. A CD player provides some great music in the home as well. The kitchen is well supplied with everything needed to prepare all types of meals. We stayed for two glorious weeks in 2016, and will be back again in 2017. We highly recommend this property for a great vacation. The owners are wonderful to work with, and really go out of their way to insure that you have a good time on your vacation.

“Relaxing week at 13 Georgia Lane”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2016

We loved our week here as much as we did last year! The home is very comfortable and spacious with so many amenities including the fabulous view of Long Pond. We have spent many years vacationing on the Cape and have found this home to be tranquil, relaxing, and accessible to our favorite areas.

Owner's reply: So glad you had a great time and are making this a summer memory for your family.

“Great late summer vacation”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2015

We have just returned from our week at 13 Georgia Lane. The property and pictures were as described. This house was very comfortable and welcoming. The owners were accessible and answered all questions. We had family in the area and the deck was great to host a cookout. September is a great month on the Cape, we had great weather! I would return to this house again.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your time on Long Pond and the Cape, and you were able to host your family and friends for a cookout! September on the Cape is fantastic! Hope you return next year.

“Wonderful house, beautiful lake, perfect location!”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

We had a wonderful vacation this summer on Long Pond. The house was very clean, spacious, and had all the amenities one would need. You can clearly tell that its owners take a lot of pride in maintaining it and have everything arranged so that visitors feel at home. Our son and daughter, both in their early twenties, had friends over for a couple nights and there was plenty of room. The location is perfect being on the Lake and a short drive to the ocean. We would go to the ocean beaches in the morning then return to the lake house in the afternoon for boating, tubing, and evening fishing. The lake is crystal clear and surprisingly not crowded at all. During the week we were one of two or three boats operating on the lake. We had great weather and the week flew by. Susan was great and was always available for any information or questions we had before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again as well as recommend it to our friends and family.

Owner's reply: Thanks, for the great review. Yes, Long Pond is beautiful and how fun to mix and match ocean time with pond time. Hope you come back again!

“We could not have been happier”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2014

This house is a real home, VERY accurately described on the website. The kitchen is spacious for cooking and well stocked. The bird feeders outside the kitchen window provide special delight throughout the day for bird watching. The bedrooms are spacious and each with its own full bath. The beds are comfortable. The living room and TV with cable, internet, lots of videos, books, games, puzzles, fireplace, deck, and gorgeous sunsets make this a wonderful place to relax anytime during the day and evening. The location is just as described: easy to get to and in great proximity to whatever you might want to do on Cape Cod. In addition to all the excellent recommendations in the book Susan provides in the house, one gem we discovered in nearby Chatham was the Orpheum Theatre, newly renovated, and inside is the Vers Restaurant, a little pricey but well worth it serving incredibly creative, tasty, farm to table gourmet food (recommend making a reservation). Susan was most helpful by getting us ready, and by quickly answering the few questions we had. Though this was our first time staying on Georgia Lane, we would love to stay here again whenever we return to Cape Cod.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your time on Long Pond. And thanks for the new eatery idea and your fantastic review. Come again!

“Most relaxing vacation EVER!”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

We have rented summer vacation spots for 6 or so years. This was by far the most relaxing for us. The home is great but the deck is the best thing! Of course we loved the pond as well. Warm and clean! We played board games and made puzzles throughout the week. Much family fun was enjoyed by all!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much, Soverow Family, for enjoying your time on Long Pond and sharing it! Come back soon!

“Happy once again”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

We recently returned from our twelfth straight year at this delightful house on Long Pond. There so many things that make staying at the house so special. The deck overlooks Long Pond and it provides a perfect setting for meals and relaxing reading. The interior of the house is very comfortable. We always feel as if we are at home, rather than at a rental property. Each morning starts with a peak out the window to see the humming birds at the feeder. The grounds are perfect for a game of croquet. I could go on and on about the many amenities. Suffice it to say that there are many reasons why we keep returning to 13 Long Pond.

“VACATION PERFECTION!!!”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

My family and I have been visiting the Cape each summer for years, and we try to rent a place near or on Long Pond. I begin my search as early as December, and I enjoy reviewing all of the descriptions and photos. Well, this year we found the PERFECT house! It is an incredibly charming home, SO comfortable that I could have stayed forever. The owners have thought of everything to make the trip special. From the well-stocked kitchen with top appliances to the delightful game room, you couldn't ask for anything else. Waking up to the sounds of birds outside our windown each morning and sipping coffee looking out towards The Pond, was SO relaxing. While the house is well situated to everything the Cape has to offer - beaches, mini golf, restaurants, etc. - one could easily be content just reading in the hammock and visiting the private secluded beach. My sons loved taking the kayaks and canoes out for a spin! I will certainly try to rent this property again - hopefully in the fall! The folks who own this house without a doubt care about their guests and take great pride in their home. This is a winner!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Kim and family. Come back soon!

Perfect house, perfect retreat, perfect location. Peaceful and yet close to all the action. It was a dream watching the sunset on Long Pond surrounded by good friends and a glass of wine.
