Property description

An old cottage is now a new house! The formerly locked attic is now a full second floor, with wide dormer overlooking the pond, many windows, 2 rooms and bath. The entire house has been enlarged and finished: heat , hardwood floors, 2 furnished decks, enlarged all-new kitchen, tiled baths, fresh paint.

Enjoy total relaxation in the hammock, in the breezy living room watching the sunset, in the swimmable pond (really a small lake) or on its beach, playing basketball on our own court, on the bike trail steps from the property, or just walking around the acre of trees, grasses and flowers. Enjoy the ease of linens and towels provided for you, dishwasher, snack kitchen in the bright walkout basement, 2 TV’s and DVD players and cable service, washer and dryer, and wireless internet. You can have a great time without leaving the property; get to the library, supermarket and two music venues on an easy walk; and even get to the bay beaches or Orleans without using Rte 6.


Cape Cod: If you've never been to Cape Cod before, you may not realize just how special it is. The Cape was formed by the retreat of the glaciers, and has been settled for thousands of years, first by Native Americans, then the Pilgrims, Quakers, Portuguese and other Americans, especially whale and cod fishermen. That makes it rich in history, geology, folklore and food. Because the National Seashore was established, it remains a place of dunes, beaches and natural vistas, rather than rows of ticky-tacky cottages interrupted by clam stands and souvenir shops. The traffic on Route 6 may be like anywhere, but once you park, you will go back 50 years or more.

Its incredible 'Cape light' has made it a draw for artists, so galleries abound, as well as top quality local theater, musical venues, and even poetry readings.

The bike trail is miles long, and there are many conservation areas for hiking, biking, kayaking and birdwatching. Antique and thrift shops are everywhere, or day trip to Martha's Vineyard.

Eastham: Our cottage is located where the National Seashore begins. It's far enough out on the Cape to be true vacationland, yet half an hour from the Hyannis hospital and under an hour from the bridge over the Canal. Eastham is less well known than Wellfleet or Provincetown, but also a lot less crowded. Enjoy the water and the sunset just steps from the door, yet a few minutes gets you to vacation joys like beaches, dunes, the Seashore Visitors Center, the Audobon Center, museums, and great restaurants, and to necessities like supermarkets, doctors and pharmacies. You can even take back roads to Orleans, bay beaches, and Wellfleet, avoiding the congestion on Route 6. We're only a mile from the bay beach, with an even wider sunset view, and about 2 1/2 miles to ocean beaches.

Car: Recommended

Eastham is at the elbow of the Cape: far enough out for wonderful National Seashore beaches and natural areas and a real vacation feel, close to the art and excitement of Provincetown, yet less than an hour from the mainland. The area feels a bit like a college town, small but cultured. Music, plays, art and readings by authors, yard and book sales, minor league baseball, and art and sports classes spice up the relaxation.
