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!
