About Bruce Freeman

We live in Connecticut and fell in love with the cape on a vacation. We spend as many weekends up at the house as we are able throughout the year with our three boys.

Bruce Freeman purchased this house in 2004

Why Bruce Freeman chose Cape Cod

The cape is a magical place-particularly for families. We love the house because it allows access to Long Pond, but is also very well situated to get around to the many great beaches on the Bay(Skaket in Orleans is our favorite) and the rest of the many activities the cape has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The Koi pond is a definitely a highlight-a very tranquil setting in which to relax after a busy day on the cape.

Great Family House!

  • 5 of 5

We found this to be a great house for a family with small kids - off a quiet dirt road, a large rear deck with plenty of chairs and saftey gates, and a 2nd floor den stocked with toys and kids books. While you can walk to the lake, its a very short drive (less than 5 minutes) to a very pretty town beach on the lake that has a life guard. Since our daughter was scared of the ocean waves, we were at the lakefront beach everyday!

Return visit

Our second year running in this wonderful vacation home. It's very well equipped and has everything you need to make the very most of Cape Cod - and the location is pretty near perfect.

Perfect mid-Cape location and a beautiful fresh water pond steps away

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults with room to spare and it's a great house for a family with kids too. We loved swimming and kayaking in the pond or taking a walk on the secluded and very quiet road, or relaxing on the large deck. Very easy to get to Chatham or the ocean beaches or really anyplace on the Cape. The house needs a flat screen TV though for watching baseball at night, that would be the only missing link, but we'd still come back. Very quiet and enjoyable place to relax and unwind.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the house. It is time for a new TV and we will take care of that in the off season. Bruce

Perfect for a family holiday on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We had a really wonderful vacation. The house is very attractive and is perfect for a family - loads of space inside the house and also an extensive garden (with Koi pond).

It can't be beaten for location. All parts of the Cape are easily accessible. Plus the road is quiet and has the benefit of being right next to Long Pond (which is more of a lake!). Use of kayaks is included - the kids loved it.

The house is well stocked with everything you're likely to need, including games and beach stuff for the kids (great as we flew in from the UK).

Book it - you'll love it!

Family bonding time

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Cape Cod. The house was just perfect. My son and his family stayed in one upstairs bedroom and his sister-in-law's family stayed in the other upstairs bedroom. They had the small children so the TV/playroom were perfect and all the gates were wonderful. The toys and books were used a lot! It was my grandsons job to feed the fish. He liked being able to do that. We ate grilled fresh seafood most evenings and took daily trips to the beaches.

We can't wait to plan our next trip to your home. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
