About the property

Newly built pondside home provides comfortable accommodation for a relaxing vacation on Cape Cod. This home is a three bedroom, two bathroom house all on one floor. The home was completed in 2014. It is on a freshwater pond with a private sandy beach. The home has wonderful views over the pond from both inside the house and from the 400 sq.ft. covered porch.

There is a grassed area leading down to the pond with outdoor dining, gas grill, hammock and more. There is a small dock to launch the property's paddle boat and kayaks. Life jackets are available. There are beach toys and beach chairs for outside enjoyment. Horse shoe pit to challenge your friends/family.

Inside the house, the there is a large open 'great' room which includes the living area, kitchen and dining with oversized windows offering views of beautiful Jenkin's Pond. There is a gas fire place for those cooler evenings; the house has central A/C/heat. The kitchen is well equipped with a new professional stove, dishwasher and black granite counter tops.

Two bedrooms have queen beds, and there is also a queen pull out couch in the living room. A smaller single bedroom allows for flexible sleeping arrangements for 4-6 guests.

Jenkins Pond is a clean 87 acre freshwater pond providing holiday entertainment in it's own right. Fish or boat from your private beach, or take a refreshing swim. Power boats are not allowed on the pond which provides a peaceful setting.

Downtown Falmouth, and the ferry terminal to Martha's Vineyard are a short drive away, as are the beautiful saltwater beaches that Falmouth is known for.

The weekly rate is reduced by $250 from the second week for rentals of two weeks or longer. Please email me for specific details as this home can meet a variety of individual needs. During the high summer season house is rented Saturday-Saturday.

Please note while the owners travel frequently they do have a small accommodation on the property. Owners are very mindful that guests' privacy and use of property/beach is most important.

About Ellen Clemence

We are avid travelers and have enjoyed many extraordinary experienes around the world. Cape Cod and Falmouth remains a special place to's beauty, even during the height of summer is spectacular. Our home is on Jenkins Pond, a beautiful, clean pond that we hope our guests enjoy as much as we do. Beaches, restaurants, shopping as well as the ferry to Martha's Vineyard all a short drive. Whether you laze on the pond or go out exploring the Cape and Islands we hope you enjoy the comfort of our home.

Ellen Clemence purchased this house in 2014

Why Ellen Clemence chose Cape Cod

My children grew up on the pond and have special memories of cavorting around with our summer friends. The original cottage was 500 sq ft and not winterized. We chose to rebuild to enjoy all the seasons. The house has central air, a gas fireplace and a full kitchen as well as two bathrooms. The views from the windows are wonderful.

What makes this house unique

Private beach on peaceful, clean, beautiful Jenkins Pond. House offers guests the use of kayaks and paddle boat. THere are beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers for trips to the beach. The view from indoors is fabulous, oversized windows bring the outdoors in. Al fresco dining on the covered porch is lovely.

Whether enjoying lazy days reading in the hammock or visiting the nearby beaches, town, bike paths and all the area has to offer, we strive to provide our guests with everything needed for a great vacation.

We throroughly enjoyed our week at Ellen's house on Jenkins pond. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome basket of goodies and information booklets to help us plan our week. The house was clean and inviting, with beautiful views of the pond from the living area. We enjoyed having our morning coffee in front of the expanse of windows overlooking the pond. The house was perfect for our family of 4 with plenty of games and activities. We cooked several meals during the week and the kitchen and grill were well stocked with cookware and tools. We used the kayaks to explore the pond and swam every day. The private beach was perfect for our children, with ample sandy access for play and swimming. Falmouth offered numerous beaches, a number of great shops and restaurants, and most importantly, the gorgeous 10 mile stretch of bike path. We will definitely be back!

Peaceful oasis with a stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 year old daughter, and I stayed here over Columbus Day weekend and we had a truly wonderful time. The house was immaculate, with an open layout, high ceilings, and comfy bedrooms and a beautiful view of the lake. I rose each morning to glorious sunshine and drank hot coffee in the rocking chair on the porch -- heaven! As a family we swam, kayaked, fed the ducks from the dock, and enjoyed our meals "al fresco" on the porch overlooking the lake. The kitchen had everything we needed, and in the living room there were interesting books, games and movies for the DVD. I found WMVY on the radio and enjoyed great music while cooking. The owners thought of everything, including kids books, small life vest and beach toys for our daughter. We really didn't have to bring anything. The house was truly relaxing and we wish we could have stayed for a week! We also enjoyed the local attractions - a visit to the aquarium in Woods Hole, a swim at the ocean beach, and our daughter enjoyed a pony ride at a local farm. There is also freshly caught fish/oysters/clams at the Clam Man in Falmouth so we cooked up local cuisine in the kitchen - delicious! We have such wonderful memories of our escape to Jenkins Pond and can't wait to go back next year!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

I went away in early October for an All Gals Weekend with some terrific friends, and was delighted to stay in this lovely home. There is a beautiful view of the lake and its beach from the living room and deck. Besides the view, the lake itself its just a hop and skip away from the house. Although I did not take advantage of this, I understand that there is a nice trail to walk around the lake right from the back door. The house has plenty of room, is sparkling clean, quiet, and lacks for nothing from the beautiful soaps in the bathrooms to the well appointed kitchen. Despite the fact that it rained during some of our stay, there was plenty of shopping and available eateries in nearby Falmouth. I would definitely stay here again, and get around to taking that walk.

Owner's Response: Hi Posy, So glad you had such a good time (despite the rainy weather) with wonderful friends. Yes, the road loops around the pond, a little less then 2 miles around. Come again! Ellen and Jim

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this vacation home, from its location to its breathtaking views. The home is incredibly well-equipped with everything a family needs for a comfortable stay. The private dock and beach are great- especially for young children. We enjoyed kayaking and paddle boating on the peaceful pond during our stay. The owner is very helpful and prompt at returning communication. We would highly recommend this home and can't wait to return!

Car: necessary

The property is few minutes drive from picturesque Falmouth, which has a full range of restaurants, bars, shops and banks. It is close to the ferry car park for Martha's Vineyard which makes an excellent day's outing. Falmouth is famous for its sandy ocean beaches all close at hand. Bring your bike and use the nearby Shining Sea bikepath through beautiful and varied Cape Cod scenery to Wood's Hole.
