Set in the middle of conservation land, this old-fashioned (circa 1915) four-bedroom summer cottage has its own private waterfront on pristine Long Pond. It's country kitchen (newly renovated!), big living room and screened porch accommodate up to 9 people. Eagles fly overhead, there are miles of sandy trails around cranberry bogs and natural ponds where eagles fly overhead. The swimming, fishing and boating are great.
This summer cottage which we call Apley House, has been in our family for four generations. We've left the original classic wood interiors and updated the kitchen (new cabinets, counter and floors in 2016), bathrooms (new shower in 2016) and laundry while keeping the rustic charm. It's a great house for mixed generation families or groups of friends.
There is a queen bedroom downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs (three twins, one double and one queen). The downstairs bath has a shower, the upstairs bath has an old fashioned clawfoot tub with hand shower. The kitchen has all the basic appliances including dishwasher, microwave and new washer and dryer. The house has a large yard. The private beach is just across the two-lane sandy road and down the hill -- about a one minute walk. The waterfront is shady with some sand and some pebbles. There is a small dock and floating raft. A canoe is included in the rental. You can access miles of wooded trails right from the parking area. The trails lead to scenic cranberry bogs and more quiet ponds.
Apley House is a non-winterized summer cottage. There is no heat or air conditioning. We do supply fans and space heaters (we ask you to use these only while you are awake and present in the room).
Guests have access to the private beach with dock, raft and canoe, house, large yard and nearby trail system.

The Cornish Point Cottages are owned and managed by the Conant family. Four generations of Conants have summered on this property. We love its historic, rustic nature and work hard to keep it that way. The family photo in our profile is of Gerda Conant and her 5 children. The "kids" now own and manage the property as Cornish Point Cottages. We all pitch in. Susan lives farther away so she does the reservations, Peggy manages the cleaning staff, Donald does the plumbing repair and David is our carpentry expert. It takes a lot of work to keep the place going but we love it.
