Mashpee house description

Fall colors are spectacular from the many windows of our cozy cottage on Santuit Pond in Mashpee, Cape Cod, on a quiet wooded street. Enjoy tree-framed views of the lake from almost every room. Our location offers access to many parts of the Cape, including Cape Cod National Seashore. Shopping, movies, and ocean beach are nearby.

Main entry brings you to the den, open kitchen, dining and living rooms. A large deck on the lake side includes a gas grill and outdoor eating area with terrific views. 2 bedrooms--queen and twin/king --and a bath are one level up and 2 more--queen and twin--and a bath are one level down. On the ground level you can walk out to a quiet office, or down steps to the lake. 3 living areas, including a Foosball table, allow room for the family to engage in various activities, and we have 2 TVs with DVD and VCR. A maximum of 13 can sleep in the four bedrooms plus queen sleeper sofa, double futon, and twin convertible, and a porta-crib.


No smoking indoors and please remove all traces of smoking outdoors. No pets, please. Minimum contract age 25.

Amenities: Fully equipped, recently remodeled kitchen with everything you'd expect to find, including lobster pots.

All linens are provided for bed, bath, and beach. 2 cable TVs with VCR and DVD, and a huge selection of movies. Stereo, CD, high-speed wireless internet, indoor and outdoor eating areas, books and games, phones, office, washer/dryer, central AC, LR gas fireplace for chilly times, gas barbecue.

Activities: Swimming, boating, fishing, biking, golf, movies, fitness center, shopping, ocean beach.
Area: Mashpee is midway between Falmouth and Hyannis, not far from Sandwich, on the Upper Cape. An hour's drive takes you to Provincetown, an hour and a half to Boston or Providence. Almost any activity you might wish for your holiday is within easy access. A favorite activity is just sitting on the deck to enjoy the lake views while you sip your coffee in the morning.

When we remodeled the kitchen we thought about the extended families (including our own) who enjoy staying and cooking at Tree House. The island with vegetable prep sink and stools for chatting with the cook, stainless appliances, large dining tables both indoors and out--all make it easy to center your social life around meals. The den, living room, and family room on different floors also work well for many guests' family arrangements, so you can chat, play games, watch different movies at the same time. Of course there are plenty of places to eat out or watch the latest movies on the big screen if that fits your wishes. And you'll find numerous places to take walks, enjoy the beach, go to the islands for the day, browse for antiques.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: Although we live in Illinois, we treasure the time we spend on the pond with extended family.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mashpee:
                  Our family has spent summers on Santuit Pond since the 60's, and we wanted to share our home in a beautiful, quiet part of the Cape.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Mashpee is a convenient central location on the Cape, and Tree House is a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family. The home's varied indoor and outdoor areas give visitors many opportunities for time together and on your own.
