Perfect and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for my family. The owners are attentive and have done beautiful renovations throughout the house. The new deck has a gorgeous view of the pond was our favorite place to relax at the end of the day. The location is close to everything yet in a quiet neighborhood. We will definitely return to this house!

Fantastic Week! This was our second year staying at this wonderful home. Lou and Marie are just amazing. We actually feel like a part of their family. The house is so comfortable and clean. We love the new deck and new shower, can't wait for next year. It is so easy to travel to town and the ocean. Our granddaughter just loves her NEW HOME. My sister came from IL. this year to enjoy the Cape and could not believe how relaxed she was. Just sitting on the deck having a beautiful dinner that we cooked on the grill and catching up on many things in our lives. Great stores, shops and wonderful people in Orleans. Who could ask for more. Marie and Lou, thank you for sharing your beautiful home on the pond. We will see you next year. :) Sherry and Family

Owner's Response: Sherry, Thank you so much for your lovely comments regarding our Pond House. It gives us great pleasure to have our "rental families" spend a relaxing week or two and leave with plans to return to beautiful Cape Cod. We look forward to seeing you all next year too! Fondest regards, Marie & Lou M.

Cozy, Comfortable Cape Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Lou and Marie made this rental very special as it was clean, cozy and updated. I loved all the hard wood floors through out the house. The new deck over looking the pond was a great addition. If it got to buggy (which it never really did) you can still relax on their screened in porch. The updated kitchen cabinets and walk in shower was a nice plus, as well as the outdoor shower. The closeness to Nauset Beach was good as well as the little main street with the ice cream shop. Our boys love the Cape Cod Baseball and their games were played about 3 miles down the road which makes for a free fun night out. As Lou and Marie know, if we just had not inherited a Cape house Mid Cape we would definetly be return renters! Thanks again!!

Perfect getaway, convenient to everything, but private and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property does not do it justice. It was clean, well maintained and outfitted with everything you need. There are views of the pond from everywhere; living room, dining room, kitchen, breezeway and the wonderful new deck. You are only a few miles from town for shopping or dining. The beach is a mile away. We had a wonderful 2 weeks here and look forward to an opportunity to return. Thanks Marie and Lou.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments. These are the things we strive for to make the rental appealing and comfortable for our guests. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and had the opportunity to inaugurate our new deck. It was wonderful to have guests like you that appreciated our efforts and treated our cottage like it was their own. We look forward to your next visit to the Cape. Lou & Marie Morongell

Most Charming Little Home

  • 5 of 5

My family had the best time. We stay in East Orleans every year and this was the best week spent ever. Our home was so clean and charming and we wanted for nothing. Uncle Harvey's Pond was so peaceful and the neighborhood was very quite. (Just what we needed) Easy to get everywhere we wanted to go. Our granddaughter (age 3) loved the outdoor shower and when time to come home did not want to leave her new house :) Thank You Lou and Marie

Wonderfully peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Uncle Harvey's Way was wonderfully peaceful. The house itself was clean, charming and updated which made our stay comfortable. The WI-FI was on the fritz but the owners were very gracious and concerned that this did not deter us and it did not. There were plenty of local activities to keep us busy. The location was convenient to beaches and the center of town. Overall our stay was great, a perfect girl trip!
