About the Property

4 BR 2 BA Cottage on Idyllic Long Pond, sleeps up to 9

Are you a nature lover? Apley House is the spot for you. You can see eagles flying overhead while you walk sandy trails that lead around cranberry bogs and wooded ponds. Enjoy swimming, fishing and boating from your own private beach on pristine Long Pond.

Apley House has hosted happy family vacations for over 80 years. It offers spacious housekeeping accommodations for up to 9 people. The cottage has four bedrooms, a country kitchen (renovated in 2016!), and a large, comfy living room with fireplace. Exterior gathering spaces include a screened porch in front, deck in back and a large yard with plenty of space for lawn games. There are two baths: downstairs has a spacious shower (new 2016) and laundry area (new 2016), the upstairs bath has a historic clawfoot tub with hand shower.

Situated in the middle of conservation land, this spacious summer home is perfect for people who enjoy water-sports and the outdoors. You can swim, fish and boat on one of Southeastern Massachusetts' pristine glacial lakes. Enjoy quiet strolls along woodland paths and visit the nearby historic sites in Plymouth and Cape Cod. Plus, Apley House is just a short drive away from shops, ocean beaches and Plymouth's great golf courses. Avoid wrangling with Cape Cod traffic and stay in Plymouth.

There's so much to do in the area: Swimming, fishing and boating are favorite activities on Long Pond. The lake is well-stocked each spring and there is a public boat ramp for access. Ample hiking and bicycling trails head into the Wildlands Trust properties next to the cottage and lead you through woods and cranberry bogs around Halfway and Gallows ponds. The scenery is magnificent. We've seen osprey, eagles, mink, and more. It's an easy drive to the near-by Plymouth and Cape Cod tourist sites; it takes about 15 minutes to drive to Plymouth Bay beaches and Plymouth Plantation. The Lower Cape beaches are about 45 minutes away and it is less than 3 miles to Pine Hills and many great Plymouth golf courses!

We have additional cottages and cabins about 1/2 mile away from Apley House. You can add these to your rental or take them individually as one, two or four bedrooms. We are occasionally able to accommodate larger groups (up to 35) in the entire property.

Car: Necessary

Beautiful Long Pond has clean, clear waters and a sandy bottom. With a high percentage of natural shoreline, the pond offers a peaceful respite. The landscape is covered in pine woods. Much of the property surrounding Apley House has been preserved as conservation land. You can walk for miles on the sandy trails.

All of the tourist sites, golf courses and beaches in Plymouth are very close -- less than 20 minutes away. You can access the Lower Cape within 1 hour and the Outer Cape is a hefty day trip.

Other Activities: bird watching, boating

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1920

About: The property is currently owned jointly by five siblings, descendants of Lily and Richard Conant (grandparents) who inherited the property from a close family friend and Rick and Gerda (our parents). Our children are the fourth generation to summer on Long Pond. The photo shows our mom and her five children.

Why Plymouth, MA, USA:
Although much of summer life on Long Pond is focused on the water, we love the woodland paths and walks that surround Apley House. Our family is committed to preservation of this area -- we donated 40 acres of woodland just next to the cottage to the Wildlands Trust and the State of Massachusetts recently acquired the property abutting the other property line.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can walk from the yard of Apley House onto nature paths that take you by two neighboring ponds with magnificent views, eagle's nests and scenic cranberry bogs. The house has all the classic details of an old summer cottage, simple but beautiful wood details, high ceilings on the main floor and cottage construction.
