About Laura Niedzwiecki

We live in New Jersey with our three children and also own a beach block condo in North Wildwood, NJ that we also rent for summer vacations.

Laura Niedzwiecki purchased this house in 2015

Why Laura Niedzwiecki chose Eastham

We have been vacationing in Eastham, Cape Cod for over 25 years. We love the beautiful beaches and serenity that Eastham has to offer. We have always loved Great Pond and have spent many days enjoying the pond over the years. When the opportunity arose for us to have our own property on this pond, we couldn't pass up the views. We hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do.

A very comfortable Great Pond waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house and amenities. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We prepared multiple meals in the kitchen which we enjoyed eating in the dining room, as well as on the deck. The view of Great Pond was fantastic, especially from the master bedroom. We brought a kayak with us although really would not have needed it since your kayaks and paddleboard kept us occupied for hours each day. Great Pond was not overrun with motorboats and noisy neighbors. This was a very peaceful spot. The proximity to the Cape Cod Rail Trail was convenient as we brought bicycles to ride. Plus, you are only a mile from Arnold's!!! We would definitely consider staying here again. We have often felt that photos advertising rental properties looked better than reality. In this case, we thought the photos did not do this house and property justice. The house was well stocked in the kitchen, and with plenty of water toys. Laura was a pleasure to work with.

Delightful Family Cape Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here and had a blast. The location is perfect - so nice to have access to the pond to kayak! Close to trails, walk to the grocery store. Plenty of fun to be had in the basement when the weather isn't cooperating :)

Great location with amenities and privacy

  • 5 of 5

The privacy and peaceful setting were just what we needed! The view of the pond is just spectacular! Very clean and well maintained. We stayed mid June and worried the pond would be too chilly to swim since the weather leading up to our stay was in the low 70’s but were pleasantly surprised the water wasn’t cold. We only had 2-3 days that were warm (high 70- low 80) with calm winds that were good for swimming and kayaking but that was enough time to enjoy the lake. There is a little beach close by on the pond that you can paddle too and a bigger one with docks to lay out and jump off of on the other end of the pond that I paddled to but a bit too far for kids to paddle across pond, so I’d drive there with kids. The other days were spent exploring the National Seashore which has so much to offer! Loved the location of this home since it allowed us to be close to so many amazing trails, beaches, lighthouses and great towns. In the evenings we had Uno, air hockey and pool tournaments.

Highly suggest First Encounrer at low tide, hours of fun for kids in the tide pools and the most spectacular low tide we’d ever seen...beach as far as the eye can see! Great to hit a low tide there at sunset, This beach is right at the end of the street!

Fabulous home, tons to do at the house, on the lake and by National Seashore. Don’t pass this up!

Owner's Response: First Encounter is our favorite! There is nothing like Cape Cod bay at low tide. Our kids have enjoyed countless hours in the tide pools and then swimming in the warm bay water as it comes back in over the warm sand! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you consider staying again.

We will return!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect for us. Library, walking/bike trail and beach all very close by. Restaurants, grocery store and shopping all within 10- 20 minutes away. The house was beautiful and exceeded our needs. The view from deck, kitchen and master bedroom was amazing, sunsets over lake. Amenities available that we didn't even get a chance to use.

Owner's Response: We agree that the location is great for all that Eastham has to offer but also close enough to other attractions on the Cape. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and you will need to return so you can enjoy some of the other amenities at the property!

The Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, which includes our two grown children and their spouses and children, returned to this very special house for the sixth time this year( three under the former owners and three with the new owners(Laura and her family). That probably gives you a sense of how much we love coming here. As soon as you walk out onto the deck and look out over the pond, whether it be early in the morning or at sunset, you forget everything else and RELAX! There is so much to do without ever getting into a car. We liked to use the water "transportation" to get over to the pond beach (pedal boat, kayaks, paddle board), or just jumped into the water in the yard. Follow that up with an outdoor shower and you're ready for the rest of the day! The local superette, which is only about 1/2 mile away, provides whatever you need for a great barbecue and the bay beach is only about 3/4 mile down the road. Drive it, walk it, or use the bikes that are provided- it couldn't be easier. The ocean beach is only a little over a mile away.The house has everything thing you'll need and is so comfortable that you'll never want to leave! Our stay there was wonderful and we look forward to going back again and again.
