Property description

Spend your days exploring the National Seashore and your evenings at a sweet little retreat directly overlooking Minister's Pond. Just a short walk from the National Seashore's Visitor Center and trails. Enjoy morning coffee or meals on your screened porch or sit in your Adirondack chairs overlooking the water on your private dock. Comfortable and private, the cottage sits away from the main road and is a short drive to bay and ocean beaches, shops, restaurants and other destinations.

Located in a very private spot in a small Cape Cod cottage colony, this is a perfect retreat for singles or couples who want to have a great time exploring Outer Cape Cod and a cozy place to return to after an exciting day! We also have many guests who find it a perfect location for workshops/seminars.

1.8 Miles
Nearest Beach
Coast Guard Beach

Car: Recommended

Walking distance to the National Seashore's Salt Pond Visitor Center, the beginning of the spectacular Outer Cape. You'll have access to miles of hiking trails with postcard worthy views, and an off-road bike path to Coast Guard Beach, one of the Cape's most beautiful ocean beaches. There are lots of park programs to choose from, and a wonderful Audubon Sanctuary within a short drive. Great location for exploring Wellfleet, Provincetown, Orleans and the rest of Cape Cod.

Eastham is at the start of the expansive National Seashore beaches, and the Cape is narrow enough to give you easy access to the calmer waters of the Bayside beaches as well.

Other Activities: shellfishing, kayaking, salt and freshwater fishing and swimming, Cape Cod bike trail, outdoor & indoor movie theaters, flea market. Whale watching in Provincetown. Lots of fresh seafood, in restaurants or to 'cook in'.

Big supermarket, lots of shopping, restaurants and cafes in nearby Orleans as well as in Wellfleet. We have a great little local food and beverage store with a deli just a few miles.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a Franco-American couple who searched for a little gem we could retreat to ourselves and rent to others to enjoy. We surprised ourselves by finding our little bit of heaven tucked away on a small private road behind the bustle of route 6. In a small, older cottage colony that is now "condos", we have great neighbors and excellent privacy. We picked our little cottage because it has its own private dock and was solidly built , with

Why the Owner Chose Eastham, MA, USA:
Perfect location if you want to be private but close to the amazing stretch of beaches that makes up the Outer Cape's National Seashore. Freshwater ponds and the bay beaches are also great for endless variety. We love taking our bikes on the off-road path to Coast Guard Beach, walking to the Salt Pond Visitor's Center for our morning walks, and shopping (low-key and friendly) at Eastham's Superette. We also love the simplicity yet practical little space in our cottage, where we often cook fresh local seafood and eat on our screened porch.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Great location and waterfront at a reasonable price. Perfect get-away for single or couple. Conference attendees can come home to their cottage only a few miles from the Sheraton and the high school.
