~or~
Come back to the beach at night to take in the Beautiful Ocean Sunset, which is not a common site if you are from the East Coast…..but because of the way Cape Cod curls around at its elbow as it heads towards the tip of the Cape….. the Bay side begins to face towards the West and you get to experience one of the many simple, magical pleasures of “Old Cape Cod.”
In Eastham you can see the sun rise in the morning on the Cape Cod National Seashore (ocean side) and the sun set in the evening on Cape Cod Bay all in the same day and only 3-1/2 miles apart from each other.

Local Restaurants: Stop in any morning 2 minutes down the road to ''The Hole in One'' donut shop on Rte 6 and get yourself a delicious cup of coffee or tea and/or a ''taste bud screaming'' homemade donut or muffin.
There are many fine local Restaurants as well, The ''Lobster Pool'' which has great lobster and seafood, The ''Friendly Fisherman'' known and voted for the best lobster roll on the Cape, The ''Fairway Restaurant'', which has a good combination of all foods especially their creative pizzas and last but certainly not least 'Arnolds Restaurant' Right on Rte. 6 and the Rail [bike] Trail it is a cafeteria style restaurant that serves beer and wine and has a walk-up window for ice-cream. All of these establishments offer different atmospheres and dining experiences.

Cape Cod National Seashore : The Cape Cod National Seashore was created on August 7th, 1961 by President John F. Kennedy to protect the sheltering dunes and beautiful coastline. Eastham has two ocean-side beaches on the National Seashore: Coast Guard Beach, which was rated one of the top 10 beaches in the Nation, and Nauset Light Beach. Both beaches mark the beginning of 30 miles of shoreline stretching all the way to Provincetown.
The red and white Nauset Lighthouse is said to be the most photographed site on Cape Cod.

                  Car: Recommended

                  The home sits on a 1/2 acre lot that has plenty of room for the kids to play, ride their bikes or have whiffle ball games. There are plenty of places to park either on the side of the house where the circular drive is located or off to the far end of the property away from the play areas. The property and neighborhood are very pet friendly.

                  The owner has a small 1 bedroom cottage behind the main house in the back of the property which he occasionally uses. Should you ever have any questions or need any recommendations during your stay please don't hesitate to knock on his door or give him a call. They are more than willing to be of assistance to help steer you in the right direction.

                  Campground Beach is just 6/10 of a mile or a 10 minute walk down the end of the road with a quaint little convenience store half way (3/10 of a mile) between the house and the beach. During low tide you can walk out between a 1/2 mile to a mile. It is great for the little kids who like to play in warm salt water puddles, dig for clams or build sand castles. Don't miss coming back to the beach at night to take in the beautiful Ocean Sunset, which is not a common site if you're from the East Coast

                  Other Activities: Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, Roller Blading or walking.

                  Kayaking is also very popular in Eastham since we have some of the most beautiful, scenic and best places on Cape Cod to Kayak. Be sure to ask Patrick where some of the best spots to go are.

                  The Cape Cod Baseball league is one of the premier amateur baseball leagues in the country and is played all over the Cape all summer. It attracts the best college talent from around the country and most of them have to be invited. Many players in MLB have played in the Cape Cod Baseball League and it's where you can see future stars play before they make it to the big league.

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: I fell in love with Eastham and the Outer Cape a little bit more everyday after working in the area for about 5 months back in the spring of 2004. I kept driving by this Antique Cape house that was built in c1725 that was for sale for a while and after taking a look, putting in an offer, I was hooked on the area and the Outer Cape. I like to tell people that the Outer Cape kidnapped and seduced me and it still has a hold of me. I am a builder from Boston, born and bred my whole life and I always loved the older houses with their quality, charm and detail and to have the opportunity to buy a house that was from the Colonial days and the forefathers of our Nation was exciting for me. This home was built 50 years before the beginning of the American Revolution in Lexington and Concord Massachusetts and 51 years before the drafting of the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams of Quincy MA. To think that some of those rugged colonial pilgrims that founded our Country lived in this house was stirring to me. I do hope you enjoy your stay here as much as I have.

                  Why North Eastham:
                  This property has a peaceful feel to it and the Outer Cape area is just beautiful. Time slows down a bit on the Outer cape. As soon as you come over the bridge onto Cape Cod your worries will start to melt away. Those are not my words but they are the words of many family and friends that come to visit. I love the history and the thought of who use to live there. This home use to be on Billings Gate Island which is 3 miles off the shores of Campground Beach on the bay side. The island can still be seen at low tide and it is still visited. Around 1910 this fishing island community finally gave way to mother nature and erosion. They finally floated this house and a few of the other 35 houses across the bay to Eastham and some also went to Wellfleet in an effort to save them.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I think one of the most unique benefits is the ability to see a sunrise on one of our beautiful National Seashore Beaches in the morning and then at night only 3-1/2 miles away you can enjoy our beautiful sunsets on Cape Cod Bay which are uniquely different every night. We also have one of the only 3 Drive In Movie Theaters left in the State of Massachusetts 2 miles from the house in Wellfleet called 'The Wellfleet Drive-In'. There are so many convenient accommodations for such a small and rural town. I grew up in Boston and there are as many everyday conveniences in Eastham as there was in my neighborhood in Boston. Conveniences like stores, food shopping, clothes shopping, great restaurants, Dunkin Donuts as well as home made donuts and coffee, plenty of antique shops, churches, hardware and supplies local dentist and local barbara shop etc. There is also the Cape Cod Rail Trail which is a 22-mile (35 km), very safe, paved rail trail located very near or about a 1/2 mile to the property just off Rte 6. The trail route passes through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, and Wellfleet. It connects to the 6-plus mile Old Colony Rail Trail leading to Chatham, and 8 miles of trails within Nickerson State Park. It also passes near the end of the Nauset Bike Trail leading to Coast Guard Beach in Cape Cod National Seashore. Short side trips on roads lead to several other national seashore beaches as well. The Cape Cod Baseball league is one of the premier amateur baseball leagues in the country and is played all over the Cape all summer. It attracts the best college talent from around the country and most of them have to be invited. Many players in MLB have played in the Cape Cod Baseball League and it's where you can see future stars play before they make it to the big league.
