Love that we can walk out the front door and down the steps and be swimming, and canoeing. Place has that in the woods feel to it as it is in the National Park. Quiet at night and very clean with all the things you need in the kitchen and on the deck.

Outstanding pond to spend time on. The kids loved the pond and it is very easy to keep an eye on them since it is right off the deck area. Everything was clean and fresh and we are looking froward to returning here again. Ted and Dawn
Tim, we had a great time at the cottage it was perfect. We saw an otter and a fox the first day there! It was just as you described. It was a perfect get away, peaceful and quiet. The weather was great too. You have a special place.

"Cottage in the woods on a beautiful pond"
We have been renting in Wellfleet for a long time, and when we found this cottage we couldn't believe our good fortune. The location is perfect: a quiet, clean, lovely pond in the woods, in the Cape Cod National Seashore, an easy drive to the center of Wellfleet and the harbor without having to go onto the highway, a second pond nearby for the children to look for turtles and frogs, and a little gem of a cottage. We have been spending a month there each summer for several years and look forward to doing so for many years to come.
-We love Wellfleet
"We had a "Great" time staying on the Great Pond."
I had always wanted to stay on Great Pond for years and finally my dream came true in 2010. The owners of the place on great Pond were so accomadating. The place was so clean and cozy. We enjoyed relaxing on the Big deck overlooking the Pond. The Pond is so clean,quiet and fun to swim and float in. We also canoed and kayaked there. The cotttage had everything we needed (except the food ! ). Having a washer/dryer and dishwasher made our vacation easier. It's location is perfect for enjoying everything Cape Cod has to offer. I look forward to spending future Summers there. I would highly recommend the Cottage on Great Pond !
