About John

John and I were truely blessed to find this paradise on Cape Cod. We are confident that our renters to our lovely home will enjoy the splendor and natural beauty of the National Seashore, its beautiful beaches and the peacefulness of our wonderful fresh water pond.

John purchased this House in 2004

Why John chose Eastham

John, as a child traveled every summer since six months old to Cape Cod with his family. I was born on the Cape in Bourne and spent my toddler years in Truro. After marrying, now 27 years ago, we have realized our dream of a beautiful home on the Cape together to share with family and friends.

What makes this House unique

'On Depot Pond' is unique in that it is large enough to accommate a family group in shared spaces including our deck and screened porch on a one acre property. But, at the end of the day, with three distinct areas, the family is allowed to spend time alone in of TV's, places to relax and for the kids to play without everyone having to be on top of one another. Great for the parents plus the kids.

                                                                    Took our adult children and their family for the 2nd year. By Wednesday, everyone agreed to return for a 3rd year in June of '17. Perfect and private property. House is cozy and comfy. Everyone from 5 to 55 loved Depot Pond, the 2 mile bike ride to the bay or ocean, and the easy proximity to anywhere on the Cape. Loved sitting on the deck or watching wild life inhabit the pond from the. living room bay window. Looking forward to another charming 3rd trip to Depot Pond.

The 6 of us had more than enough room to enjoy our time together but also have private time to read and relax alone. The screened in porch off the master bedroom is a beautiful room. We enjoyed kayaking on the pond, I also took a swim. The house is an easy bike ride to the National Seashore Visitors center and to Coast Guard Beach. The Cape Cod rail-trail is close by also.

                                                                    This house is a super place to accommodate an extended family or several couples. The lovely lawn and gardens welcome you to sit outside and relax by the pond. We have rented many VRBO place thought the USA and this home is certainly a 5 star place.

Decor was beautiful with such attention to detail. The spacious deck overlooking the pond was an idyllic setting. We all agreed that we would love to come back.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

The house is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The location is spectacular, situated on a fresh water kettle pond and on the Bike Trail with easy access to ocean and bay beaches. I can't imagine a better place to stay.

                                                                    This is a fantastic place...

We especially enjoyed using the sunfish, kayaks and canoes. The bike trail is close by, as are bay and ocean beaches.
