Lakeside Point of View - Plan Now for the 2016 Season

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

Water, water everywhere you look from this fabulous, modern, year-round home, lakefront location in scenic Mashpee, Cape Cod, a short drive (80-90 mins) from downtown Boston and Providence. The property overlooks state conservation land, faces the sunset, and is an especially beautiful setting off-season!

POV is the perfect destination for a truly relaxing vacation with all the comforts of home. Also an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing - be inspired! The view from the master bedroom is breath-taking and changes daily - from the crystal-clear reflection of trees and sky to the mist gently rising from the lake. Extra-high windows and cathedral ceilings let the sun pour into spacious living spaces.

Three large bedrooms (including a huge master bedroom suite), three and a half baths (one with a jacuzzi), fully equipped kitchen, open, airy layout, fireplace, and separate entertainment centers (air hockey, exercise equipment, and even a library for young and old) make this an ideal family vacation spot. A king-sized bed, queen, three singles, queen-sized sofa bed, and double futon easily accommodate 10 people.

This 4-season vacation home is designed for comfort and wired for fun: Internet, cable, and a DVD player are all included, along with air conditioning, washer and dryer, all sheets and towels, and all the other amenities (from microwave, to lobster pot, to fireplace) that will make this feel like your home away from home.

Fish off the dock, take the canoe and explore the bogs, go hiking and biking along the trails in the neighboring conservations areas, spend the day at one of the nearby beaches, or explore some of the antique shops for which the Cape is known. All are located a short drive away.

At the end of the day, watch the sunset from the wraparound deck, throw some fish on the outdoor grill, or enjoy one of the many nearby restaurants. We dare you not to relax while you’re here!

The weekly rental ($2200-$3250 depending on the dates) makes this easily the best deal on the Cape, a far cry from the cost and crowds at nearby New Seabury. Be our guest and discover why so many of this year’s visitors returned after last season and will make their reservations for next year before they leave. In the words of one of our previous guests, “perfect house, perfect setting, perfect weather. . . a haven for summer after summer!' More comments below.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY: From December - April, from $300/night for any visit of 4 days or longer! Don't underestimate the beauty and serenity of Cape Cod off season - spectacular colors, moderate temperatures, and no crowds.

Please, no pets, no smoking indoors, and remove all traces of smoking outdoors.

Perfect 'Point of View'

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, well maintained and private lake house exceeded our expectations and was the perfect setting for an extended family vacation. Wine and dinners on the spacious wrap around deck, with water views in all directions, while the kids splashed in the private swimming area, made every evening more enjoyable than the one before. Ann was so nice and welcoming, made us feel right at home. We can't wait to come back to 'POV'!

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of spending the past week at Point of View, as we prepared for our first son to get married, in the neighboring town of Sandwich. It was wedding week and POV was the perfect place for reflecting and spending time with family.

We did everything from canoeing and fishing on the pond to having delicious dinners in the spacious kitchen. The younger children enjoyed feeding the visiting swans and ducks. There was plently of room for the 10 of us. Especially, as we readied ourselves for the wedding. Anne was such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. She was flexible and accomodating. Everyone agreed we will return to POV again. So nice!!!!!!

the perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Point of View for a family vacation with my daughters, their husbands, and our 2 grandchildren ages 4 years and 7 months. The house was better than the pictures and description! When we walked in my youngest daughter said "Are you kidding me?" and that pretty much summed it up! We spent time on the deck, dock and in the canoe (a favorite for my grandson.) Beautiful South Cape beach was only minutes away and the Mashpee Commons was great for shopping and dining. We spent most evenings enjoying the views and sipping wine on the wonderful deck. The kitchen was great for cooking and you even have a view while you are doing that! Any family would love this place! Just don't take my 2 weeks next year!

A very nice get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful 3 night weekend here - 2 fifty something couples. Everything is as advertised. We loved the 9.5 foot ceilings and abundant windows coupled with a lovely "lack of clutter" decor that was very tastefully done. The 180 degree waterfront views on the first floor and from the decks are really special. We ate at some very good, fun restaurants: Moonakis Cafe for breakfast, Wicked, Siena and the British Beer Co.for lunch and dinner. The gas fireplace is easy and warm...although we would have loved an outdoor fire pit near the water...we had a full moon and it was not too cold. It would be great to go here in the summer but we had a really lovely late fall time here as well. Thanks - we would definitely recommend this home!
