Spacious family home sleeps 14, minutes to beautiful Cape Cod Bay. The house has recently been remodelled and offers a well equipped kitchen, dining area, spacious living room. Three bedrooms on first floor, two bedrooms/vaulted ceilings, second floor. 2/10 of a mile down a sandy lane, the house offers privacy and a huge back yard. Charcoal grill and picnic tables make the yard a perfect spot for BBQ's, kids, or cocktail parties. We are within half a mile of several wonderful restaurants, bars, Drive-In theater and cinemas. Eastham has many bay beaches and two ocean beaches, and is known as the 'Gateway to the National Seashore'. We have an abundance of bike paths and walking trails, a windmill and beautiful Nauset Light (lighthouse). The house does have a small 'cottage' with two bedrooms which is wonderful if you have multi-families or want a private area for older relatives or young adults. Campground beach is a ten minute walk, and you can walk the beach for miles from there (all the way to Orleans!). Wellfleet is just a couple of miles to our north, and Provincetown is 20 miles (and well worth the visit). I'm always available to help or answer questions, and have enjoyed renting the house with great success.
Our house is located 2/10 of a mile down a sandy lane and is very private. Ten minutes from the Orleans Rotary, you may drive back roads from Orleans to Wellfleet and avoid any summer traffic on Rt 6...moreless

Additional information about rental rates
The house has a two bedroom apartment attached (this is a two family) which may also be rented out. The other guests may share the grill and back yard, otherwise both sides are completely private. Laundry facilities are for guests in the main house, only. Last season, I rented mostly to airbnb visitors. There were no issues, and you may look at my references from this site.

Eastham is located in the beautiful region, the 'Outer Cape'. Only three miles wide, we are bordered by the ocean and Cape Cod bay (we have 6 bayside beaches and two ocean beaches located within the National Seashore.) A small close community in the off-season, you'll find local folks to be very helpful and welcoming. We have a beautifully restored and functioning Windmill in the middle of our town, on Rt 6. There are plenty of ponds and hiking trails, as well as a beautiful walking trail to Coast Guard Beach in the Seashore. Fort Hill is a wonderful spot to visit, with spectacular views of the ocean and an opportunity to walk the boardwalks through ancient cedar forests. Stop and admire the view of Nauset marsh. There are many places if you like to kayak, a very popular activity with the locals too. There are four wonderful restaurants (with great bars) within half a mile of the house. Wellfleet Drive-In theater and cinemas are also within a couple of minute's drive. Provincetown is 20 miles, and Hyannis 30. Don't miss the evening sunset at any bay beach, you'll be in good company (and might notice that the sunsets are often applauded by the crowd!). If you're an early bird, check out the amazing sunrise over the ocean. There is a bike shop and boat rentals also within half a mile. WHAT (Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater) is also a wonderful local treasure, and while you're in Wellfleet stop in at some of the local art galleries. There's plenty to do, and we're happy to give you more suggestions if you'd like!
Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: I am a retired Fire Captain from the Eastham Fire Department (still working part-time as a Paramedic in Provincetown). We love living in our airstream trailer in Dennis (so I'm close by), and leading a simpler life now that four of the children are grown. I grew up in Orleans, and brought my children up here in this wonderful house (but don't need all this room any more!). This is a wonderful neighborhood, a mix of summer folks and year-rounders. We love it during all it's seasons!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The back yard is perfect for children to tumble out onto, or for a BBQ or family gathering. It's a very safe area (we never held keys to the house), and wonderfully quiet at night.
