About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Dens, sunporch, deck overlooking water, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Just 4 miles from the Bourne Bridge and Cape Cod Canal … without the traffic! Located on the shores of Ezekiel Pond in South Plymouth (by the Bourne and Wareham town lines), the home features three bedrooms, kitchen, two dens (you can enjoy one Den while the kids enjoy the other), sunroom, one bathroom, and large deck overlooking the water and dock just 15 feet away. Hardwood floors upstairs, ceramic tile downstairs, new kitchen, bright open floor plan with plenty of windows. Central Air, gas grill, free WiFi. Deck is unbelievable--just a 12 feet from the water, the deck is 26 feet long with incredible water views. Home is located on a quiet road.
The peaceful 36-acre, 24-foot deep lake is great for swimming, kayaking, fishing and is the third cleanest body of water in Massachusetts. Only an occasional power boat. Gradually sloping sandy lake bottom is great for children. Crystal clear water. If you prefer the ocean, Scusset Beach State Reservation in Bourne is just a 15 minute drive. This home comes complete with a canoe and two kayaks. There is a hammock hanging just 4 feet from the water.
Plenty of stores just ten minutes away, and a country store just a half mile from our home.
Perfect Golf Vacation: several courses in the area including Atlantic Country Club which is 2 miles from away.
Enjoy the beautiful sunsets while relaxing on the deck!

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I'm an author of several travel books and several true stories of survival and adventure. It was my dream to buy a house on a lake near the ocean so that I could enjoy the best of both worlds. My idea of a great day is to take a morning bike ride, go to one of the nearby beaches to body surf the waves or fish for striped bass, and then return to the Plymouth house for a swim in the crystal clear waters of the lake. And of course, this is all capped off with drinks on the deck while watching the sun set on the lake and a dinner cooked on the outdoor gas grill.
Why the Owner Chose Ponds of Plymouth (Plymouth, MA, USA):
While I love Cape Cod, I can't stand it's traffic. So from my Plymouth house I can avoid the Cape during high traffic periods (weekends when people are going to rentals is the worst), yet I can drive to the Cape in just 10 -15 minutes from my lake home at a time that is convenient for me. (There is so much to do near my house, I find that many family members and guests only go to the Cape for a couple brief visits during a week's stay, and instead spend most of their time on the lake or doing an activity in Plymouth or Wareham.) And for those folks that want to go into Boston, our location has easy access to the highway and the trip is much shorter than if you left from the Cape. We give discounts for extended stays.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The road our house is on is extremely quiet, and the lake (Ezekial Pond) is peaceful. It is a good size at 36 acres (and 26 feet deep), but their are only a couple power boats on the lake because power boaters prefer the huge lakes or ocean nearby. This makes Ezekial Pond pefect for kayaking, canoeing, swimming and fishing (great largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing). I also like the fact that while you feel like you are way out in the country, a ten minute drive brings you to Route 25/6 which has every store and restaurant imaginable on it. This roadway also has activities for the kids such as mini golf, go-carts, a waterpark etc. At the house I've put together an entire booklet of some of my favorite places and few secret spots with maps and phone numbers. I want guests to have a week that has a mixture of fun, discovery, and relaxation. My whole approach is that when renters love their vacation at my lake house we all win -- those same people will want to return in future years, and each year they find new things to do and learn their own favorite places.
