Lakefront house on over seven acres w/ private dock & beach right on the pond!

Spend your getaway at this Wareham vacation rental on the White Island Pond! With a private dock, you're all set for aquatic fun. This large and private property even has its own little beach area situated on seven-and-a-half acres.

East Wareham is just 15 miles away from historic Plymouth. An easy drive takes you to nearby small towns like South Pond and the Myles Standish State Forest, with its hiking and bike trails, is 14 miles away. It is also a short drive onto Cape Cod, where you can then hop on a ferry and visit Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard for the day.

A private dock sits on the pond just outside the back door. Jump in the water for an invigorating swim. Though you may see a few others out on the water, on the whole, this pond is uncrowded and quiet.

This home offers plenty of entertainment options, indoor and outdoor. Watch your favorite cable show with a friend, or grab one of the house's board games to play. Sit in the sunroom with a book, or play a badminton match. Both the living room and sunroom are excellent places to spend a quiet afternoon, with large windows and glass doors out to the deck and views of the lake. Log onto the WiFi and upload pictures of your trip, or head to the kitchen to prepare a delicious meal.

The kitchen comes well-stocked, with all the necessities and some fun extras. People who prefer to start the day with a little caffeine will be glad of the coffeemaker, and the dishwasher cuts down on cleanup times. When you're done, enjoy your meal inside at the dining table or outside on the patio furniture.

With three bedrooms and some other sleeping options, there is room for up to eight guests to stay here. One bedroom has a queen bed, while the other two have trundle-style twin beds. If that's not quite enough for your party, there are futons in the living room and sunroom.

This house will delight a family with young kids who can enjoy the close proximity to the pond. Spend afternoons fishing for largemouth bass or pickerel, then have a blast grilling up your catch for supper. If you feel like venturing a bit farther afield, head to the day-use area by College Pond in Myles Standish State Forest for bicycle trails, equestrian trails, and hiking trails. Bring a picnic and make a day of it!

No trip to the area would be complete without a trip to Plymouth, "America's Hometown." Visit Plymouth Rock, which is believed to be where the Pilgrims first landed. Tour Plimoth Plantation, a living history location with role-playing guides and a crafts center. And if there are any nautical fans in your group, check out the Mayflower II, a replica of the original Mayflower located at the State Pier.

Grab your fishing rods and guidebooks and get ready for a trip filled with fishing and learning at this Massachusetts vacation rental!

My 3 girls loved the easy access to the water and the variety of floats available. They did not want to leave! This is a family friendly house and is pretty ideal for people with small children who are just looking to relax!

This is our second year back and we really enjoyed the house just as much as last year! The beach and clean water were just perfect for the kids to swim all day. We do look forward to booking again for next summer, you really can't beat the views, the lake, and the fishing. Also, the stores and some great restaurants are nearby. So even though you feel secluded at the house whatever you need is right around the corner :).

We greatly enjoyed our weekend visiting nearby beaches, relaxing in the lake, and barbecuing. The house was in very good shape. Would definitely come back again next summer!

Cottage that feels like you are out in the wilderness but you are only 5 miles from the highway. Property is well maintained, clean inside and out. Beach area well taken care of and plenty of floats, etc. for everyone. A great spot, wish we could have stayed longer!

This house was in a great spot and offered a wonderful view of the pond. The private beach was perfect for the kids, who spent the day swimming in the clear/clean water. The house has a great yard next to it and feels very private. The two screened in porch areas to the house were wonderful, especially for the few rainy days we had. There was plenty of space in the house for 7 of us to sleep (3 kids and 4 adults). We would definitely consider renting this home again!

This is a very cute spot, the pond is more like a lake as the setting is picturesque. The house is setup perfectly with a nice sandy little beach, the pond is spring fed so it's nice and clean. The house feels like a typical lake house and has nice outdoor picnic tables, canoes, pedal boat and decks. Great setup.

This place is great with lots of things to do. If you don't want the hassle of getting to the beach, enjoy the lake and beach out the backdoor- boats were an added bonus. My kids enjoyed collecting clams and bluegill fishing. It was a short drive to the beach and all the tourist attractions (water park, mini golf, shopping, etc.) We spent most of our time playing in the lake. Low key, no fuss, quiet, and relaxing. We hope to come again!

Our family had a great time here. We had no major issues with the cottage. We spent all day everyday swimming and boating in the lake. The beach is large, sandy and great for the kids. The water is crystal clear!

Stayed here to celebrate Father's day weekend and we really enjoyed the place! Went canoe fishing and fishing along the shore where my husband got his first catch! The lake is clean, water is clear you can really see the bass hunting for his next meal. The house has 3 bedrooms and it accomodated enough 2 families with 3 small children. They have a private little beach where kids played in white sand, went boating, canoeing and they have paddle boat too that you can use. Sunset during golden hours are just the icing on cake! We have beautiful sunset pictures wish i can share it here.
