About the property

Waterfront Lake House - 2BR, 2 Bath, sleeps 6 - 8

Beautiful and private 2br home located directly on spring fed pilgrim lake. Walk off your back deck after a morning coffee, swim in the lake, or kayak fishing for some fresh water bass. The house is located 3 miles from Nauset Beach (national seashore), and 3 miles from Skaket beach (The Bay side of Cape Cod) - offering the best of both worlds.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed and overlooks the lake, with large sliding doors that walk out to the back deck (equipped with an outdoor table for dining). Also a private, full size bathroom inside the master bedroom.

The second bedroom has full over full bunk beds, and easy access to the second bathroom which is also equipped with a shower. We've also added an outdoor shower which is easy accessible from either bedroom.

The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of space to cook for a full family. The dining room overlooks the lake with a large bay window. Living room is great for reading, relaxing, or enjoying a movie/game on the flat screen TV (house is equipped with Comcast Cable & WiFi).

Guests are welcome to use our 2 kayaks, row boat, outdoor fire pit, hammock and gas grill.

Linens (sheets & towels) are provided, but we do have a full washer & dryer if you choose to bring your own, or need to do laundry throughout the week.

If you have any questions or would like to reserve the property, please email or call and we'll respond within 24 hours (or sooner).

Thanks for looking!

Peace by the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a peaceful extended stay at this lovely home right on the bass filled Pilgrim Lake. The home was clean and offered enough space to relax. The lake view is from the large master bedroom was very tranquil. We also enjoyed the same view while eating in front of the spacious bay window. We were lucky to have a warm and sunny October. This allowed us to enjoy sunrises and sunsets with just a short drive as the house is convenient to both the ocean and bay. The owners provided use of a couple of kayaks that we used often on the serene lake. Although the "Dagger" style boat was a little difficult to master. The 2nd bedroom is a little small. Dominated by the twin bunk bed. But our occasional quests did not spend too much time there. It also as the added bonus of being dog friendly. The trash and recycling pick up was appreciated as well. The hosts were very available and responsive will all our communications. All and all it was a lovely and comfortable way to spend the month of October.

Relaxing, peaceful, easy, clean getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I along with my pup had a great week on Pilgrim Lake @ Collin and Liz's home. Collin was easy to communicate with in terms of confirming our stay. Everything was as described. The home is down a long driveway, so the privacy was wonderful but you didn't feel like you were in the middle of nowhere. Quick trip to the beach/town and only 40-45 minutes to Ptown so it is truly in a great location. Being on the water is fabulous, waking up and having your coffee on the deck, having a fire at night...just a lovely home to spend your week on the Cape in. The kitchen had all you needed, and the living room had many games/books/TV/wifi for a rainy day. Truly a great and special find for a couple, mother-daughter trip or small family!

Holiday long weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect choice for a relaxing getaway. Although it was the winter I have family locally but we wanted to have some additional space of our own and be able to visit. The bedroom overlooks a beautiful pond view, and was simply perfect to wake up to. This was a fairly last minute trip and Collin was prompt responding and very accommodating. This was a short trip to solely unwind and relax, and this property offers privacy, cozy living space and quick drive to town. I am looking forward to spending some time here in the summer months to take advantage of the adorable grounds, fire pit and outdoor shower. I truly appreciated the follow up from Collin after our visit and the ease of making the reservation. I highly recommend this property if you are planning a getaway or a long term visit. Simply charming

Slice of Cape Cod Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to enjoy living at this outstanding Cape home for a month, and the memories will last a lifetime. Close to it all, yet tucked away on Pilgrim Lake, outdoor activities were plentiful. The best part is that the dogs also had a great time with us. If you want to truly experience life on the Cape, it doesn't get better than this. We would definitely stay again, and wish we were still there.
