About the Property
- 1 bedroom, 1 full bath + outdoor shower, sleeps 2
Katudala's is a quiet refuge for folks in search of a place to hang their hat, relax, sunbathe, go for a walk on the beach, or on numerous National Park trails, go birding or biking, spend the day in Martha's Vineyard/ Nantucket, go antiquing in Dennis/Yarmouth; or just want to spend a quiet day of reading, painting, or writing as you view the Atlantic for inspiration.
Excerpts from the 'Log' say more than ads:: '...We saw the turkeys and chicks, Baltimore Oriole, the pair of cardinals, and seals at the beach. No fox or dear this year. We spent lots of time relaxing on the deck reading, walked the beach. Enjoyed great food at Finely JP's, Blackfish, Sam's Deli & ice cream at Nauset Ice Cream. Wish we could stay longer. Alas, must go back to work.' from New Hampshire
'...we were able to slow down from our usual routine and enjoy many things: the birds, deer, rebbits, turkeys and their babies, walks, the ocean, CC Museum of Art, some local friends, books (Jeff - 4, Deb - 3), etc.. I broke my rule of 'no TV or news' on vacation and watched a little to keep up with the campaign, especially Hillary's 'exit' speech. I didn't want too many surprises when I get back to the real world. Until next time...' from Connecticut
More excerpts: '...I appreciate the quiet time and the at home cozy feeling....'
'After eleven years we've revisited Katudala's to find it the same as it was then: private and personal, charming and delightful with seas, sky, sand, and all of nature's trimmings thrown into the bargain!...' from Hohenweg SWITZERLAND
Wonderful holiday here (again!!). This is a beautiful place to take time out of a busy life and enjoy the beauty of nature. We've walked, cycled, relaxed and we find outselves going home with a feeling of peace. the creatures have been entertaining as usual - especially the turkeys. The sunsets and moonlight nights spectacular.
thanks you again for your hospitality - and introduction to little necks. See you again next year.

Some blank verse?: Like a very subtle wine, we had
all our senses met with joy by
The sweet smell after the rain.
The light on the sea, early morning.
Sounds of birds and winds
We walked to Nauset light and
back; our feets will remember
the sand and the ways it moves
The rain wanted everything green!
...and almost succeeded...
Thanks you for this (too short) time in
your peaceful place on the Atlantic.
Merci! Quebec, CANADA 2009

Eastham historic 'Land of First Light'; Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor Center, activities, and museum; cycling & hiking tails; flea market; broad cuisine variety; ocean & bay beaches; charter whale-watching/birding/sight-seeing cruises; boating
Other Activities: Programs and trails at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (Audubon), nature walks at Natural History Museum in Brewster, lake and marine kayaking, art and craft shows everywhere, lots of live theatre!
Golf: Do you like 'links' golfinglike you get in Scotland? Try Highland Golf Links overlookiung the Atlantic in Truro...an experience you won't forget! If you like groomed fairways try any one of four public courses from Harwich/Brewster eastward.
Ski: You could probably rent a jet ski from Nauset Marine if you get tired of the peace and tranquility of Katudala's. But, I would suggest a canoe or kayak. You'll love it and the wildlife, and maybe a 'little neck' quahog on the half shell on a sand bar.
Year Purchased: 1934
About the owner: We grew up in Buffalo NY (Kathy) and Attleboro MA (Nat), Married in 1961, we have three girls (two in Seattle WA, and eldest in Charlottesville VA area) and we have lived at schools where Nat taught or was administrator, and Kathy has been working in clothing and gift retail for thirty-odd years. We are both very much involved in volunteering locally with church, Habitat, Audubon, and the Cape Cod National Seashore in which we live.
Why the Owner Chose Eastham, MA, USA:
Nat's grandparents built the main house in the 1930's. Nat has summered in Eastham since the 1930's, while he, Kathy and their family have done so here since the 1960's. The name of the cottage, 'Katudala', was the nickname given to Nat's mother by her father. Where he found the name has yet to be determined!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Privacy, seclusion, sounds and sights of wildlife are what most of our guests tell us are most memorable. But, we suggest you go to the 'Recommendations' section of this website to read about Katudala's assets in the words of our guests
