Set on land nestled next to White Pond, this small enclave of cottages was a perfect place for our family to unwind and reconnect. We found the rustic cabin to be clean and equipped with the necessary items to cook breakfast and heat up a quick dinner. I could have used the modern coffee maker but instead chose to use the stove-top percolator that brought back memories of my grandma's kitchen. If you're renting a cabin don't expect too much space or many amenities but those things are not really what you need on a Cape Cod vacation. Instead you're on a pond that offers swimming, rowboating and fishing and within walking distance of a quintessential New England downtown, offering concerts, great dining, baseball games and beaches. The clothesline and picnic tables located outside each cabin proved to be convenient although gas grills would've been more convenient than charcoal grills. We loved the Sunday night s'mores making on the beach beside the pond. It gave us a chance to meet our fellow vacationers and members of the family who own the compound. Being able to reconnect meant being disconnected from the Internet due to the spotty Wi-Fi available. I was glad I didn't have any pressing work issues to check on this vacation because the Wi-Fi could have been a source of frustration.
