Outside you will find views of the 24 acre pond/lake from a stone patio with outdoor furniture and a charcoal grill. The property is shaded all day by trees, which makes the weather pleasantly cool all the time. The waterfront has a sandy launch area for the canoe to explore the freshwater pond. Wildlife can be found everywhere, including Canadian geese, mallard ducks, box turtles and osprey.

About MInh Nguyen, Trevor Borek
My wife and I have been married for almost 7 years and live in Western Massachusetts with our two children Sequoia and Yenisey and our dog Kea. We met in Vietnam 9 years ago and taught English there together for nearly 5 years. We moved back to the states shortly before our second son was born and started teaching at a private boarding school in the Pioneer Valley.
MInh Nguyen, Trevor Borek purchased this House in 2017
Why MInh Nguyen, Trevor Borek chose West Barnstable
We vacationed a few times in Cape Cod before buying this house, and we had been searching for nearly two years. We wanted something that was unique and convenient that could be enjoyed by our future generations.
What makes this House unique
This house is ideal for a family with 2-4 children and some extended family. It's greatest feature is being so close to Garrett's pond. It is a truly unique opportunity to be able to stay at a lake-house in the heart of Cape Cod. The trees surrounding the house keep the air cool all day long. Everything you need/want is at most a 10 minute drive away.

A magical little cottage by the water
We had a wonderful stay here in September. The location is tucked back down a private road, which added to the serenity of the space, but was a short drive to villages like Osterville and Centerville. Beds were comfortable and appliances were clean and functional. The shower is tricky, so make sure you get it to temperature before you hop in! Only critic is the absence of a hair dryer. which was listed as an amenity. Wouldn’t have been a big deal, but we were there for a wedding, dinner rehearsal, etc. I’m sure this will be replaced before your stay!
Cozy Cape Cottage
We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and the beds comfortable. The pond was beautiful. It was a little cold and overcast for us to go in the water, but enjoyed the view. There was a lot of information about nearby beaches and restaurants. Definitely would stay here again.
lovely, as described.
Great vacation spot. Thank you.
Beautiful peaceful oasis away from the bustle of the Cape
This place was such a treasure. The lake is beautiful and tranquil and the property, especially the backside, feels very private. The house is well maintained and has everything we needed including life jackets and beach towels, which made packing so much easier. The hosts were accessible and responsive and the house was clean and well taken care of. The main streets are close by enough that a trip to the grocery store can be quick and painless, which isn’t always the case on the Cape. We would love to come back. The only odd things for us were the bathroom mirror is so low that I couldn’t see my face in it to put on makeup or get ready (and I’m short!), and the dining table chairs kept falling apart (they had obviously been glued back together previously). None of that really mattered though when we were lakeside. :)
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home with our family. Our young kids (2 and 5) had a blast in and on the lake, and the large collection of books and toys that came with the house brilliantly filled a rainy afternoon. The place was meticulously kept, thoughtfully decorated and had a great view of the lake. We highly recommend this place!
Relaxing Weekend Getaway!
Enjoyed a wonderful weekend on the Cape staying at Trevor and Minh's place on Garrett's Pond. Complete information sent to us prior to our stay made getting there, accessing the key and getting settled a breeze.
The home is an immaculate and tastefully furnished lake house. Beautiful views of the pond from both the master bedroom and from the lower level with a slider walk out to a slate patio. Lots of greenery, birds in the trees, ducks on the lake. Very quiet area, at least in March. Very relaxing.
Great location to get to 6 or 6A in minutes but you feel very much off the beaten path.
Although it was just my husband and I on a weekend away, I would recommend this house for families also.
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!
This location is ideally placed in a peaceful setting with lake views. However, if you need/want to go shopping, Hyannis and it's surrounding areas are minutes drive away. Old Barnstable is also a stone's throw away if you want to participate in community activities such as visiting the comedy club. However, if beaches are why you came to Cape Cod, this house is conveniently placed to reach bayside and oceanside beaches in minutes.
