About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This house is unique in design. The upstairs kitchen and master bedroom have cathedral ceilings with fans. Many of the building materials used were from older buildings and structures. The front door is 4’ wide, it was part of an elementary school as well as the antique coat rack. There are 5 atrium doors overlooking the deck and pond.

The kitchen is 23 x 18 and has an incredibly lengthy 11’ table and seats 10. The cabinets were rescued from a chemistry lab from St. Regis College. The appliances are stainless steel, the drawers and cupboards are fully stocked with all utensils and cooking aids. I will provide the basic food items of spices, sugar, tea, etc. The butcher block counter is 12' x 3' has plenty of working space. The hutch holds pots, pans, baking dishes, serving and mixing bowls and basically anything you could possible need.

The downstairs living room is 25 x 20 and has a sizeable leather sectional, a comfy recliner and a comfy overstuffed chair. For your viewing pleasure the bookcases are stocked with over 100 DVDs. If you desire to curl up and read you can choose from over 500 books to peruse, literature for all ages. If listening to music is your preference, also on hand are 500 cassettes and 300 albums and yes there is something to play them on! If you have talent for instruments or just like to have fun, there is a piano, a guitar and a PA system with 2 microphones. Rock on! A table that seats 4 is also in the living room and you can choose from over 30 board games to play.

This home is suitable for small family functions like Christenings, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. and can accommodate up to 50 people. The deck off the kitchen is 23' x 18' with a high patio table and 2 rocking chairs. The side deck is 30' x 24' with built in bench seats which can seat about 15 to 20 people and 2 large picnic tables. The lower patio is 35' x 25' and has 3 pink granite tables that seat 12. There is also an outdoor dry bar that seats 6. The outdoor living area offers plenty of lounging space for extra guests.

It’s all about location, location, location. This is perfect for a wide variety of activities and outings. Logan Airport in Boston is an hour away. The mansions in Newport RI are an hour and 20 minutes. It's only minutes away from the Cape bridges.

Historic downtown Plymouth is 10 minutes away and is where the Mayflower II is along with the incredibly charming waterfront which boasts whale watching, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing, waterfront festivals, free concerts and farmers markets. Enjoy antiquing and other unique shops.

Also located here for your dining pleasure are the franchises Olive Garden, Bertucci’s, Red Robin, TGIF’s and Panera Bread.

Keywords: I invite you to vacation in my incredibly spacious, sunny, comfortable pond front home. This home overlooks Clear Pond, which is one of the many kettle ponds in Plymouth. The interior rooms are bright and there is a waterview from every room. Enjoy stunning sunrises over the pond, take a paddle in the canoe, a swim or just sit on the deck with coffee or a beverage. No motororized watercraft are allowed on the pond to disturb your peace. This house is designed for relaxation and entertaining.

Wonderful home to spend time in the Cape Cod area.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year that we rented Terry's home for a week. Last year was great, but this year having a feel for the area and the house made settling in even easier. Very close to the downtown Plymouth waterfront and stores. The house is very relaxing and well stocked for anything you could want to do. Plenty of room to spread out or to be together. Our children being in their early 20's appreciated that they didn't have to share a room. I totally recommend this house.

Been home less than a week and ready to go back to Terry's place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a great week at Terry's beautiful and unique home near Plymouth. Every day we discovered something new in the house. Full of signs, decorations, and just cool stuff everywhere. Terry has such a unique house!!! There were turkeys visiting every single day. They would just wander through the backyard. The first morning they had probably 15 baby turkeys along. Had a random cat visit for a couple days. So nice to go out on the back deck in the morning and look out over the lake. We did a lot of running and visiting places- Hyannis, Plymouth, Sandwich, Boston, etc. The house was in a great location and made it a reasonable distance for all our day trips. The large living room downstairs made it super comfortable for all five of us to hang out and watch tv in the evening. There was absolutely everything you need for a stay. We really didn't need anything but our clothes. Terry had everything stocked up for our stay. Terry was SUPER in answering any questions we had. Really happy with our stay here! Grocery store was just down the road and it was such a short drive to Plymouth. Terry was also super fast in returning our deposit. Just received in mail today with a really nice note. HIGHLY recommend staying at Terry's PLACE!!!

Terrific First Class Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I, like many, can be extremely apprehensive about reserving on the internet and sending money to a completely unknown person. However, after a few calls and emails with Terry, I reserved a time and mailed her the complete amount as agreed. I was not and I am not disappointed in the least—Terry, bent over backwards to work with us! She was prompt at getting back to me and worked diligently to answer all questions and worked to resolve any doubts or problems I may have had. Her house is great! We had eight folks for Sat night Lobster/Clam dinner and her kitchen was perfect! We all shared the moment sitting around her kitchen table making family memories. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the beach scene but just +/- 10 minutes away from it. The pond the house is on is a pristine little pond, clear water and no motor boats. There is a canoe at the water’s edge which translates into a calming paddling experience. I recommend this lady to everyone! Her home is just what she presented it to be! A great place to get together with friends or family and enjoy their company!

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

We had great day trips from the house - hiking at World's End near Boston, exploring the Cape and bike trails, Ellisville Harbor State Park, kayaking in Buzzard's Bay, swimming at Scusset Beach, witnessing an amazing sunset at Sandy Neck, and of course, wandering Plymouth. In the evenings we were able to enjoy the quiet house on the pond - lots of cooking in the kitchen with dinners on the deck and sometimes relaxing in front of the TV. The house has fun and interesting decorations, and the owner is responsive to questions/comments.
