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!

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.

Knotty-Pine Paradise on Pilgrim Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this amazingly peaceful and comfortable cottage for a quiet Thanksgiving and it was PERFECT. The weather was favorable enough for us to blaze some morning fires in the outdoor fire pit, which was an incredible way to start the day while we sipped our coffee. The kitchen was roomy and well-equipped for cooking our holiday meal, and the little dining table by the bay window overlooking the lake was a super-romantic spot to enjoy our meal. (The full moon that night, reflected on the surface of the lake, didn't hurt.) The patio off the master bedroom is another zen spot for morning yoga or just sitting and watching the swans float by. Speaking of the master bedroom, it's spacious, the bed is big and comfy, and you wake up to gorgeous panoramic views of the water. We didn't use the second bedroom but plan to when we return with our four kids, who will fit perfectly in the double bunkbeds. The whole house has a cozy, woodsy feel that's perfect for a romantic getaway for two or a family adventure. Collin, the owner, was super-responsive to our questions while booking and during our stay. Can't recommend this place highly enough and can't wait to return!

We spent the second week of August at the lake house on Pilgrim Lake in Orleans.

The house and its surroundings were so lovely, we always felt like we were on vacation

just sitting on the deck that overlooks the lake. If it got warm, we jumped into the lake.

If we wanted to be alone and read, we lay in the comfy hammock. Ready for an adventure?

Go out in one of the kayaks or the rowboat to explore Pilgrim lake.

The house had just about everything one could want in a summer rental!!!!

Great waterfront and birding spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is nice and well laid-out with the back bedroom and deck overlooking the water and it had everything needed for a great, pre-season get-a-way. The house is set back off the road and is situated so you have a feeling of privacy and it is very convenient to town and the national seashore. Pilgrim Pond is a beautiful, quiet pond with a resident swan and nesting ospreys; we counted at least 18 different species of birds right from the back deck! The water was clear and the swimming was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay here (as did our two dogs), and Collin was responsive and answered all our questions quickly and accurately. I'd love to return someday.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a summer Cape Cod vacation! It was secluded so it provided such a quiet, tranquil environment, right on the lake! The available kayaks were such a wonderful addition! We made good use of the fire pit and the grill, and the outside deck was used for every meal! It was just a beautiful setting!

One of the best added features was the outdoor shower! The weather really cooperated, so the outdoor shower was a treat you just don't get at home!

The location was perfect, close to great restaurants, the national seashore and the rail trail. We couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation! A quiet location, yet close to all the activities you'd need. It was a perfect mix.
