About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Log cabin in Brewster, MA on Cape Cod. It is a rustic cabin on Sheep Pond, one of the Cape's beautiful sandy-bottom freshwater great ponds, about a mile long and 80 ft. deep at its deepest point. It's hard to find clearer water, with visibility of 15 ft or more.

Brewster is about halfway out the Cape, with lots to do (beach, tennis, biking, golf, mini-golf), see (Cape League baseball, Cape Museum of Natural History, Cape Playhouse), and eat (fresh seafood, ice cream) within a 5- to 10-minute drive or quick bike ride.

The cabin sleeps 6 in two bedrooms, and is a few steps above camping with a hot water outdoor shower, indoor toilet, full kitchen, etc. There is a deck right on the pond and a screened-in porch with a futon as well. Please note the fireplace is NOT functional. The cabin is old and there is a lot of dry wood and we don't want to take any chances!

The cabin is relatively private, down a 1/2 mile dirt road shared with 3 other homes. The 25-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail is at the other end of the dirt road for convenient biking/walking to other parts of the Cape.

Trash is picked up once midweek and recycling is strongly encouraged. Clean dishes, pillows and mattress pads provided; you provide additional linens (or sleeping bags) and towels. A small (13 inch) tv is hooked up to basic cable. Some like to disconnect it. WiFi is available. There's no land line phone.

No pets and no smoking, please. Check in 3pm; check out 11am.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1975

About: The cabin has been in our family for almost 40 years. We have come a long way together. We used to be the only life on this end of the pond. There is a framed photo of the cabin about 1915, complete with outhouse and Model T in the driveway hanging in the living area. We are now surrounded by bigger houses and the water level is much higher. Our neighbors are really nice people, but the cabin is determined to live as long (longer!) than these newer houses.

Why Brewster, MA, USA:
Once you take a swim in crystal clear Sheep Pond after a bike ride along the Cape Cod Rail Trail, you'll understand. Go to a Cape League game and have some fried clams and you won't want to leave either. There's no place like it!
