Great Pond Getaway
- SQF 903
Why buy a parking sticker? Grab your towels and walk down to Great Pond for a fresh water dip in a 17-acre natural kettle pond. Just .2 miles down the street (or about 3-5 minute walk or stroll), Great Pond is well known for being a popular place for swimming, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and boating. It is fantastic for the little ones or even the older crowd that may have difficulty navigating strong currents or tall waves. After a morning swim you can shower off in your large outdoor shower under the trees. Maybe hop on your bikes and follow the Cape Cod Rail Trail into Orleans for lunch at the Hole In One or Sunburst, or grab a coffee and some chocolates at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow. Head back to explore the Salt Pond Visitors center and try their scavenger hunt. There is so much to do and see right here in the Heart of Cape Cod. As guests of the Getaway, a state-of-the-art digital house manual and recommendations guide will be provided to you filled with things to do during your visit.
Your bright and cheerful cottage has two bedrooms, each with two single beds, and a loft with a queen-sized bed and dressing room. The living room is comfortable and just screams “kick your shoes off and stay a while!”. So, feel free to do so. No one will judge if you binge watch that cable tv show you have been secretly wanting to watch – it is your vacation! The full kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals in but there is also a nice gas grill to sear up steaks, seafood, and other delectable delights on. There are a/c units to keep you cool when the Cape Cod Breeze isn’t enough and heat for when the nights turn chilly. Outside you have plenty of seating to relax and chat while the kids play in the yard. The picnic table is large enough for everyone to eat outside as well.
The Getaway is centrally located between the best of the bayside beaches and the oceanside beaches. Kingsbury beach and First Encounter beach (where the Pilgrims first encountered the Nauset tribe of the Wamanoags) are both just over a mile away on either side of the cottage. Across from the cottage, on the other side, lies Coast Guard beach and Nauset Light (made famous by Cape Cod Potato Chips) which are roughly 3 miles away. Besides the beaches, the Getaway is close to mini-golf, Arnold’s, the Wellfleet drive-in, and every ice cream flavor you can imagine. Even vegan and soy varieties!
The toughest decision you will be tasked with is deciding where to watch the sunset. And even that is an easy one. Just a short walk down the street and you will be treated to Mother Nature’s water color palette in the sky. Raise your glass in honor of fine art on Cape Cod!
