In the fall the apartment boasts beautiful views of bright autumn colors reflected on the water.It is one of the most noted freshwater 'fishing-holes' in the state and is home to many large-mouth bass and fishing tournaments. The lake also welcomes all types of water sports, including water skiing.

Although while visiting, you can relax on your private balcony, swing in the hammock, play horseshoes, shoot hoops or use the on site canoe or kayak. If you are bringing your own boat we have a private dock and/or mooring for you to use at NO extra cost. A 10 minute bike ride will put you on the acclaimed Cape Rail Trail bike path where you can pedal to Nickerson State Park or the National Seashore Park and Coast Guard Beach. A 5 mile drive will take you to either beautiful Cape Cod Bay or scenic Nantucket Sound where you can catch the Freedom Ferry to Nantucket. The central location of this property is perfect for exploring most of what the Cape has to offer including the sand dunes of Truro & Provincetown, historic Route 6-A or golf at one of the many premier golf courses on the lower cape.

About Susan Stinson

It was our dream come true to live on Long Pond. My husband Jim and I built this house in 1999 and raised our two sons and entertained many friends and family over the years. Now that the boys are grown and have moved on, we hope to share this wonderful location with others. We enjoy meeting people and wish to make your stay warm and welcoming and peaceful.

Susan Stinson purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Susan Stinson chose East Harwich

Having grown up summering on Cape Cod and water skiing on Long Pond, it was a lifelong dream to own property on the lake. When the opportunity came along to buy this property we jumped at it. We find the water so peaceful and the sunsets so beautiful.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment in our home provides an escape from maintaining a large home. When on vacation, KEEP IT SIMPLE!! Choosing a book from the extensive shelves and sitting on the balcony overlooking the lake is total ZEN!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view overlooking the lake was perfect, we spent more time on the deck than inside the apartment.. Enjoyed the the lake, dock and kayaking. Thank you for a very comfortable and relaxing week.

We loved staying here. The lake life is so relaxing and we did not have to deal with seaweed. Peaceful nights, a beautiful sunset and a kayak trip were all spectacular.

Wonderful spot to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was clean, roomy, with a comfortable bed and great view of Long Pond. We used the apartment as home base while visiting daughter and family for Christmas, so while the apartment was great overnight accommodations we didn't get to enjoy all the location has to offer. Owner was very welcoming and accessible if needed. We would recommend this apartment to friends and will be our first pick when returning. Only 4 stars as the bathroom, although very clean, was basic.

Very nice place to stay on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this location very much. We visited several towns within short driving distance and took the ferry to Nantucket from Harwich which was very convenient. Bike paths are close by, as are beaches (there is a private dock and beach belonging to the owners a few feet from your doorstep which we really enjoyed and loved having access to the kayaks). The apartment is well appointed with everything we needed. We loved it and hope to return again in the future as it fit all our needs. Highly recommended.

Peaceful, relaxing, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the Cape for visiting all the cape has to offer as well as activities right outside your door. We loved kayaking on Long Pond in the morning, touring the Cape during the day, and barbecuing on the deck in the evening watching the sun set over the pond. The owners are very helpful and gracious. You won't regret your visit here. We hope to return.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful getaway to enjoy some peace and quiet! My wife and I and 15 month daughter loved our stay in Cape Cod. The balcony overlooking the lake and kayaking on Long Pond were some of the many highlights. The location is great to explore all of the Cape. The Bay beach is great for kids and very scenic. Thanks Jim and Sue for a great stay!
