What Past Guests Are Saying
Restoring the soul
My husband I were just looking at some photos from our stay, at Water’s Edge and realized that I’d never posted the review that I’d promised my husband I would do. He had such a wonderful time as did I. It came at the end of a very hectic summer and we so needed to find a place to wind down and recharge. And find it we did.
Our waterfront living space was open, tastefully decorated and included a screened porch with slider off our bedroom. But nothing rivaled the views. Early morning walks along the winding roads, discovering water birds while kayaking or just dozing at the water’s edge restored the soul. Day trips into nearby Plymouth, Cape Cod and Boston rounded out our week.
Most memorable and highly recommended!
Clean quiet and convenient
The unit was very clean and furnished as advertised, no surprises. The on lake location was quiet and lovely, especially in the evenings. The owners were very accommodating. The location is convenient for access to the Cape and Boston. The rental seems well suited for two people touring the area and looking for a quiet place to settle in at night.
Heaven at Waters Edge
We had the most relaxing, enjoyable stay at Jack and Denise’s charming house “At Waters Edge.” The rooms are a perfect mix of comfy and elegant, from the king-size bedroom with porch access, to the living room where you can watch the water for hours (or the 55” TV if you prefer), to the fully equipped kitchen. The huge, airy screened porch had plenty of room for pond-view dining, and was the perfect place to stretch out with a book. In fact, there were so many perfect places to sit and read I couldn’t decide which I liked best—dockside, sprawled in an adirondack chair under the trees beside the pond, on the porch, on the living room couch, or in bed! I tried them all.
We kayaked on the pond, exploring many nooks and coves, including Mass Maritime’s camp with its model ships—truly an interesting sight. Our hosts, who have lived in the area for decades, gave us great tips on area restaurants and attractions—they knew where to go for everything! The location is great for visiting historic sites, the Cape, and the islands, and even Boston since it’s so close to Rte. 3, but when you’re there you feel you’re in a private bit of heaven miles from the crowd.
A perfect end to the summer
We have just returned from a beautiful stay at "At Waters Edge". We were across the road from a 375 acre pond. Our living room looked out at a deck on the water with a great gas grill and a dining area for at least six people. Off of this deck was a long dock for fishing, swimming or kayaking.
We watched beautiful sunrises from the glass fronted living room and magnificent sunsets over the cranberry bog from the large shaded screen porch. The apartment was perfect, from the huge comfy couch in the living room, to the king size bed in the bedroom, and the very well appointed kitchen. We even found champagne flutes and beer mugs in the cabinet!! Eating dinner on the dock and snuggling up on the screened porch with a good book and a glass of wine are two of the many memories etched in my mind.
The location, five minutes off the highway was ideal for day trips to Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and even Boston. Our hosts, Jack and Denise, long time Plymouth residents were able to give us great dining suggestions and easy direction on back roads to visit the many towns and beaches on the Cape.
We are already planning a trip back for next year!
Heaven on Earth!
We spent a week at this wonderful get-a-way and was in "awe" from day one! Peaceful and quiet with all the amenities of home. Jack and Denise are wonderful hosts, offering much needed advise on places to go and to eat. It was like having our own personal tour guides at arms length. There's nothing not to like here ... warm and cozy interior, wonderful screened porch which was much enjoyed and the pond which was complete with everything needed for a fun day on the water or a quiet morning/evening on the dock. We not only highly recommend this wonderful home, but plan on returning the next time our plans take us to the Cape. The convenience of all "sight-seeing" adventures was great. We can't thank Jack & Denise enough for making our stay so pleasant and for going out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and wanted. We even forgot a windbreaker and wonderful Denise called the night we arrived home to let us know she was mailing it to us. How nice is that?!! If you're looking for the best, look no further!
Perfect, Quiet Getaway
My fourteen year-old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at Waters Edge at the beginning of august 2012. It is perfectly located on the edge of Great Herring Pond, just over an hour's drive south of Boston, fifteen minutes from Plymouth and about five minutes from the bridges that cross over the canal into Cape Cod.
The accommodation is better than we imagined...ideal for two, with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Evenings on the screened porch listening to the sounds of the Pond will be unforgettable and the sunrises were just beautiful.
Denise and Jack couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, offering advice on good places in the area to eat and visit and providing a kayak with which we spent a couple of hours paddling around the Pond. The water in the Pond is warm, perfect for a swim; make use of the outside shower afterwards - it's a great way to refresh in the outdoors!

Beautiful, quiet and comfortable place
My husband and I stayed at Jack and Denise's wonderful beach house for two weeks in july. We heard about the place through a recommendation, and it turned out to be everything we hoped for and more. The house is located most beautifully just at the Great Heering Pond and it's the perfect spot for both relaxation at home and trips to the many highlights in the area: Cape Cod, Marthas Vineyard, Newport, Plymouth, Boston etc. The appartment is very comfortable, and I can especially recommend the screened portch for taking a nap or dining in the morning or in the night. At the terrace by the water there is a very nice grill - we used it almost every night! Jack and Denise are very hospitable and have a great deal of knowledge of the area. I highly recommend this place for people looking for a beautiful and quiet spot.
A Great Get away
What a great stay we had at a Beach House! The rooms are bright, clean and inviting. There are relaxing views of the sparkling lake to the front and the adjacent cranberry bog and tree farm to the back. We had a great time kayaking on Great Herring Pond. We even had lunch delivered to the dock. The porches are a great place to get away and enjoy a good book. We appreciated the hosts, Denise and Jack, attentiveness and numerous suggestions of places to visit. Their dining recomendations were outstanding. There are too many things to do to see everything in one visit. We certainly plan on returning.

Come as strangers, leave as friends
At Waters Edge" is a very nice apartment directly located on Great Herring Pond. Because of the glass doors, there is a great view from the apartment directly to the pond. Swimming before breakfast, breakfast on the beach deck, relaxing, kayaking etc. - everything is possible only a stone's throw away.
The location of at Waters Edge is also a good starting point for trips to Historic Plymouth, Boston, and Cape Cod - but the most important thing , why at Waters Edge becomes a special place, is the wonderful hospitality of Denise, Jack and little Missy the Yorkie. Your questions regarding trips, eating places, nice locations to visit etc. are very welcome and there is always time for a nice talk. The little sign over the door says "Come as strangers, leave as friends" is not only words. Thank you for the wonderful time. You'll see us again.

This location has everything...lake, dock, kayaks, wonderful hou
My husband and I spent a vacation at a Beach House at Waters Edge, in Plymouth Massachusetts. I have always lived by the water, but this is the first time I have stayed right next to a 375 acre pond. Great Herring Pond is enormous, and full of lively wildlife. We immediately went kayaking in one of the tandem kayaks parked at the beach for the guest’s use. There were hawks, ospreys, geese, ducks, swans, and really large fish that jumped and splashed around. The pond is beautiful, and I think we could spend a week or a year kayaking there and not see everything!
There as a very long dock and a water deck with chairs at the end of it. When you sit there, you feel like you are in the middle of the pond. The photography possibilities are fabulous. There is also a paddleboat to play with. The beach is white and sandy, and perfect for swimming.
Once you tear yourself away from the beach and pond, there is a wonderful shady fully furnished screened deck overlooking the pond. The bedroom has sliding doors overlooking to the waterview deck, and a giant fluffy bed all in white. After a little nap, we ate dinner on the dock, where there is a big fancy grill and comfy tables and chairs! The living room has a big TV, a comfy couch where you can relax while you watch the water view or the TV, a dining table for 2 and a complete kitchen and bath. Everything was perfect and clean beautifully decorated.
I stayed at Denise and Jack's previous bed and breakfast, which was spectacular. A Beach House at Waters Edge took my breath away. I can’t believe how big the fish were, and I can’t wait to come back.
