Our house is directly on the lake (John Joseph Pond) with its own beach. The deck is very large and allows for playing and sitting and sunning, as well as having most meals al fresco! Close by you'll find the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking and the Cranberry Golf Course within a mile of the house.

One of the nicest days you could have there, one we have frequently when we are there, is to go to Skaket Beach, a Cape Cod Bay beach in Orleans, for a long low tide walk or high tide swim in peaceful salt water, then come home to the pond and take a fresh water dip.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: We have had this house in our family since the mid 1960's, when my mother decided to build on this little piece of heaven she discovered getting lost one day in Harwich. All our holidays were spent there--it is nice even in the winter. It served as a place for our family to come together. In fact, my husband's family lived across the street and we met while wind surfing on the pond many years ago.

Why the Owner Chose Harwich:
It is our place to get together as a family...and extended family. Being directly on the lake makes time spent there memorable...fishing, canoe rides, paddle board rides and swimming of course. The location is also central to many other wonderful areas on the Cape.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Again, being in the spacious house, winter or summer, with swimming and boating in the summer and long walks on the beach in the winter, make it our homeport.
