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!

Comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with kids of ages 7-13. The house was very comfortable and and did not feel crowded. It was well equipped and there were plenty of board games, puzzles to keep the kids busy. The kids LOVED swimming and kayaking in the fresh water pond. Having the life jacked and kayaks in the house was very helpful.The house's location is also perfect. Close to everything! Bruce was also very helpful. Will def consider renting the house again!

Perfect family home~

  • 5 of 5

Bruce was wonderful to deal with- very responsive to questions. We traveled with another family, and we had a total of 3 adults and 3 boys. They loved sharing the boys room upstairs. The house was big enough for our group- it did not feel crowded at all! The house was comfortable and cozy. It was not full of breakables or tchotchkes- with 3 boys, that is a huge plus! It was a perfect location for us and what we like to do on the cape. It felt like everything was within 10 miles. I would come back again! Thanks for the memories....

Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything that you need for a comfortable vacation on the Cape. There is AC in the bedrooms, you have access to a small private lakefront beach, and your sort of in the center of the Cape. The shower in the Master Bathroom is very nice, but there is no fully jetted tub, as mentioned in the ad. There is a basement with a small magnetic dart board and a foosball table, ladder ball, and there were puzzles and games for kids throughout the house. There are neighbors that are close by, but they were not intrusive. My daughter loved feeding the Koi in the beautiful Koi pond. The backyard was not as large as we though that it would be based on the photos, but there were bunnies out there to greet us each day. Overall it was a very nice house and we enjoyed our stay.

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 East Harwich

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.
