vacation rental description

You'll drive up Lydia's Island Road to our much-loved cottage, Presho Farm, at the crest of a hill on five acres overlooking its private beach on Onset Bay. We've added a lot of modern conveniences, and have worked to retain the charm of the original 80+ year old house. People are always surprised to find our little gem off the beaten path.

The house has a large sun room with a view of the water as you enter - our favorite spot to relax! The kitchen has a stacked washer/dryer, microwave, and a dishwasher that is rolled into place to operate. The enclosed sleeping porch is entered off the kitchen; it has a twin bed at one end, and a bunk bed with a twin on top and a full size bed below at the other end. There is a half bath downstairs off the kitchen.

The living room has a flat screen TV with DVD player and a small selection of DVD's. There is WIFI and basic cable in the house (access code will be provided with the instructions left with your welcome basket). Please note that from November to April the cable and internet are suspended unless special arrangements are made.

Upstairs are a full bath, the master bedroom with queen size bed, and a second bedroom with two twin beds.

Behind the house are an enclosed outdoor shower, a gas grill and a picnic table with four benches. The large yard is perfect for games. Across the road is a hammock with a view of the beach.

The beach is great for swimming, searching for shells, and just relaxing. If you enjoy walking or biking, you can explore the nearby Great Neck Wildlife Santuary. A public golf course is less than a mile away. You can catch a baseball game with the Wareham Gatemen, part of the Cape Cod League. Wareham is perfectly located to allow day trips to Boston, Newport, or Cape Cod. Take the kids to see Plymouth Rock & Plimoth Plantation. We like to stop on the way home at Kyler's in New Bedford for a supply of fresh-caught seafood to hold us over the winter months.

Our family has loved Lydia's Island for more than 70 years. We know you'll love it, too!

traveler reviews for this onset farmhouse rental

Presho Farm

Review submitted: August 6, 2013   Date of arrival: July 27, 2013

This was a perfect rental for us and especially the grandchildren (ages 10, 9 and 7). Yard and private beach areas were very nice for entertaining our family and friends. Every one of our guests remarked on how the nice the home and property was for a small get together. The children enjoyed swimming and crabbing/shelling in the bay. Home was perfect and very welcoming, especially enjoyed the large sun room. Property owners very helpful and accommodating. Will definitely plan a return visit next summer!

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you so much! We're glad you and your family enjoyed the house. Please do plan on a return visit! Lisa

A Gem!

Review submitted: July 20, 2013   Date of arrival: June 30, 2013

We had such an amazing time during our week at the Farm House. The house in so charming and the grounds were perfect for our two boys (ages 4 and 6) to run around. We also loved that the beach is on a bay that is super calm and perfect for small children to wade into. Highly recommend this house for families who want a relaxing week on the water!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thank you, Kyra! I'm especially happy to learn your boys enjoyed themselves so much. We look forward to your return!

Girls' Week at the Cape

Review submitted: September 20, 2012   Date of arrival: September 8, 2012

We had a wonderful time at Presho Farm. We were surprised when we turned onto the private unpaved road that is Lydia's Island Road -- but we found the house as described at the crest of the hill!! The all-season sun room was delightful -- we ate, read, played games and thoroughly enjoyed that room -- one of us even slept in it on a lounge chair!! Eventhough the weather was a bit on the cold side, we were able to enjoy the small beach and the path past the osprey nest to a longer beach. The third bedroom (originally a porch) was not what we expected so we just closed the door and did not use it. The location was perfect for exploring Boston and Cape Cod. The owner was very helpful with information about the area and called us a couple of times during the week to make sure everything was going well.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you very much, Dianne! I'm so glad you and your friends enjoyed the house, and I hope you'll visit again. All the best to you,
Lisa
