Come enjoy Adirondack style cottages nestled amongst tall trees on the sandy shores of Long Pond. Carved by the retreating glacier, the mile-long lake offers clean, clear, water,  fishing, excellent canoeing and sailing, and swimming beaches. Our classic summer cottages offer an old-fashioned vacation where you can enjoy the outdoors and the simple pleasures of rural life.  The cottages, with their peaceful, rustic charm, are surprisingly close to Cape Cod's tourist destinations, ocean beaches, and golf courses. But you can also find lots to keep you busy right on Long Pond.  Each cottage has waterfront access.  Nature preserves, cranberry bogs, and sandy roads offer places to walk and bike near by.   Families and groups are a great fit!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Cornish Point Cottages are located within an hour of Boston and Providence and 15 minutes from the bridges of Cape Cod Canal.  Plymouth's historic sites and stores are 15 minutes away and the local award-winning golf courses at Pine Hills are just 2 miles away. The Lower Cape is an easy ½ day excursion while the Upper Cape and Islands are a hefty day trip. Both bus and train lines run from down town Plymouth to Boston.  Please click on the "Information and Directions" links for more specific driving directions. ACTIVITIES ABOUND Plan on spending time outdoors. Long Pond is the best swimming lake around -- clean and clear with lots of sandy areas and wooded shores. The pond is popular with fishermen too. In spring there are stocked salmon and trout. During the summer we've caught trout, bass, perch and sunfish. We have a canoe available to rent for a small charge. Apley House is adjacent to an extensive nature preserve, you can easily walk to two other beautiful ponds from the trails leading out of the yard. We've seen osprey, eagles and loons on these walks. The Palace and Lilli Group are situated deep in the woods at the end of a private sandy lane. Although there is plenty of wildlife right there at your doorstep, you will want to hike and mountain bike on these roads.  And of course, be sure to bring a good beach book and games just in case it rains. MORE ABOUT THE NAMES: Many people ask why our cottages have names.  Lilly Conant, great grandmother to the youngest of our clan, grew up in Yorkshire, UK where cottages commonly have names.  Lilly helped found Pinewoods Camp, the folk dance and music camp for adults and families, that is next door (from the Palace and Lilli Groups you can hear folk music from Pinewoods wafting through the woods). Lily named our cottages after English Country Dances and for family members.  Four generations have since summered in these cottages for over 60 years.
