Pilgrim Knoll is the perfect Cape Cod experience. The house is simple and grand at the same time - charming, charming, charming. Nothing is over the top and it has it all. The views are stunning. We had a large crowd of company one evening at it was perfectly accommodating. The Mumfords have thought of everything - all the comforts of home! I feel privileged to have been able to share in its history. I hope to return again and again!

This was a wonderful experience, very relaxing. Close to everything we wanted to so. Kayaking on the ponds, in the creeks of the sea. Clamming, Rockport beach sunset, just sitting on the porch with my family, relaxing in front of the fire. Excellent vacation I recommend to everyone.

Quaint, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Beautiful location overlooking two ponds. Sat outside every night in the adirondack chairs looking at the stars and pond. Very serene. Close to everything yet very secluded. I would definitely return!

Great Cape Cod Experience

September 15, 2010

I've been visiting the Cape since I was a child. There are certain things that make it special. Canoeing on a pond. Walking through the woods to the beach. and the signature cottages. This cottage has it all and it's private and quiet. An amazing special place. Clean. Kept Up. Well-equipped kitchen. great views. Absolutely Charming- perfect for a family...or anyone. And Bob the owner is also very nice. If you can get in- you won't be disappointed.

What a great couple of weeks at the cottage...as connected yet serene a setting as you will find...Jemima Pond is mesmerizing - it is like staring at a nighttime campfire. My favorite memories will be the trophy bass hooked on Jemima Pond and the epic battle that ensued, stumbling through the nature trails under the light of the full moon and ospreys flying overhead with herring in their talons...Thank you.

Returning again for the third consecutive year to this wonderful place. The quiet and solitude here is the perfect antidote for stress. We enjoyed the beautiful weather nine out of our ten days. Now we are already looking forward to next year! Thank you!

Welcome to Paradise! Sunsets at First Encounter Beach are a must! Long walks on Coast Guard Beach - go south at low tide to see seals, many seals! We kayaked, canoed, fished, hiked right on the property at Pilgrim Knoll. We watched swans on Herring Pond and ospreys over Jemima Pond. At night the stars shine so bright - the Milky Way was huge! The cottage is perfect in every way and the scenery is majestic! Thank you, we will be back!!!

We had a wonderful vacation with family and friends. The house is beautiful and spacious. Used the canoe to paddle around the lake and enjoyed breakfasts on the adirondack chairs. We also had a lot of fun barbecuing and walking to First Encounter Beach. Staying in this house was a joy. Thank you!

We had a fantastic vacation. The cottage was just perfect with everything we could need to make us feel right at home. The location is amazing and we really enjoyed swimming in both ponds, canoeing and standup paddle boarding. We loved biking around the Cape Cod Rail Trail and the Provincetown bike trails - amazing. The kids enjoyed flying kites behind the house. We watched the sunset at First Encounter Beach which was gorgeous. We are sad the week is over. Thank you! We plan to return.
