Why Steve chose Ponds of Plymouth
We were looking for a summer home after staying with friends at their summer house in Plymouth. My oldest daughter was a toddler and thought it would be a great place to have a summer home for our new and growing family. Plymouth has everything and is very convenient to the Cape and Boston so we thought it would be perfect for us. I found this property after searching many, many properties. I fell in love with the location and the spring fed, clean swimmable pond. At this time the house was a small ranch. As our family grew to #2 and #3 we realized we would have to sell or make this house larger. We love this area so much, in 2008 I decided to raze the small ranch and build a completely new house with a full walkout basement and 2 floors above. I designed this house to take in the panoramic views and the nature abound. I also had in mind the countless large family gathering we have at the house. I made a large open floor plan with all glass overlooking the water and a huge deck. We still use this as a summer house but I went a 'little crazy' when building so we have to rent out a few weeks to help pay the bills. We are happy to see other families share our 'little gem' and have many vacationers request to come back multiple times.

Wonderful Family Vacation
This is a lovely home on a tranquil pond. We enjoyed every moment. The home is well thought out with areas for groups and for quiet time. We loved sitting on the upper deck overlooking the pond sipping morning coffee. During the day we did canoeing and kayaking along with swimming out to the dock. The water was amazingly clear. The children enjoyed finding frogs and tadpoles.There were beautiful water lilies to check out.
The home had a well stocked kitchen along with a great grill on the deck. The open family area lent itself well to group activities such as board games and puzzle making. Over all we had a wonderful time and I would recommend this home to others.
Fun for whole family
A great time. Three generations enjoyed the week. Great location right at the pond with private beach and dock. Plenty of fishing. Close to many activities but you dont even need to leave. Full kitchen to prepare meals games galore. Fun for the whole family.
This home was great, It offered a place for our family to relax and have fun, Plenty of space for all, Great yard set up with deck, patio, yard space for games and waterfront with a sandy beach for the 2 youngest in our family to play at the edge of the water, Stores are a 15 minute ride away. Steve was easy to communicate with and had trash service and linens for renters so they did not have to bring from home, A big thanks to Steve for allowing us to enjoy his home.
Ideal location and setting.
We had a fantastic vacation at this property. Located on a private pond, it is quiet, but within easy reach of Plymouth and all that the cape has to offer. Our days were spent either relaxing at the house and swimming in the warm fresh water pond - which has a great raft for diving and a small private sand beach - or off exploring Cape Cod.
The house is clean, stocked with all of the essentials for a self sufficient stay, and spacious. Air conditioning was a nice perk for warm nights. The three floor set up was great, as it allowed everyone the room to either find their own space, or gather comfotably for meals, and games together.
It was a beautiful house. We all had a great time there. Fully worth for the price. Kitchen was filled with all the things needed for cooking, baking & BBQ.
There was a nice pond behind the house filled with fish. My friends stopped counting how many fish they caught after a little while. :) There was a canoe & a kayak, so that you can spend lot of time in the pond itself.
There are many beautiful beaches around that you can enjoy.
Perfect vacation spot.
We had a wonderful week at the pond house in Plymouth. Grandparents, parents and five children had such a great time swimming, kayaking, fishing and enjoying the beautiful house. There was plenty of room for all and the yard was very well maintained and perfect for the kids. We had a problem with the microwave and the owner stopped by and fixed the problem. The setting is perfect and peaceful and yet not more than 15 or 20 minutes from the beach and other attractions. I would highly recommend this listing for any age group-especially nice for families with kids. We loved it so much we have already booked again for next summer!
Serene setting and only minutes from Cape Cod and Plymouth Harbor
