Beautiful Long Pond has clean, clear waters and a sandy bottom. With a high percentage of natural shoreline, the pond offers a peaceful respite. The landscape is covered in pine woods. Much of the property surrounding Apley House has been preserved as conservation land. You can walk for miles on the sandy trails.
All of the tourist sites, golf courses and beaches in Plymouth are very close -- less than 20 minutes away. You can access the Lower Cape within 1 hour and the Outer Cape is a hefty day trip.

About Susan Conant
The property is currently owned jointly by five siblings, descendants of Lily and Richard Conant (grandparents) who inherited the property from a close family friend and Rick and Gerda (our parents). Our children are the fourth generation to summer on Long Pond. The photo shows our mom and her five children.
Susan Conant purchased this cottage in 1920
Why Susan Conant chose Plymouth
Although much of summer life on Long Pond is focused on the water, we love the woodland paths and walks that surround Apley House. Our family is committed to preservation of this area -- we donated 40 acres of woodland just next to the cottage to the Wildlands Trust and the State of Massachusetts recently acquired the property abutting the other property line.
What makes this cottage unique
You can walk from the yard of Apley House onto nature paths that take you by two neighboring ponds with magnificent views, eagle's nests and scenic cranberry bogs. The house has all the classic details of an old summer cottage, simple but beautiful wood details, high ceilings on the main floor and cottage construction.
