Relax and get away from it all at this 3 BR 2 BA bright and sunny North Eastham home, one mile from Cape Cod Bay and steps away from shops and cafes. Comfy beds, airy interior, well-stocked kitchen and sparkling clean in a quiet, residential neighborhood.
Big outside shower, firepit, sunny deck, hammock, and large, pretty fenced-in yard complete your Cape vacation. Post and beam construction featuring a 20 foot vaulted ceiling, skylights and knotty pine round out the classic, updated Cape Cod charm of the Barking Urchin Guest House.
Blending privacy in a peaceful, family friendly neighborhood with easy access, you can walk and take the back roads to Cape Cod Bay beaches or the best coffee and donuts and other shops in this part of the Cape. (Check out the Hole in One or the Fairway Restaurant!)
You're one easy mile to Campground or Thumpertown beaches on the Bay, featuring miles of white sand flats at low tide and warm Bay waters. Or, 2 miles to ocean waves at Nauset Light and Coast Guard beaches. This heavenly part of the Cape has so much to offer. At a moment's notice you can drive out to the Bay and the Ocean and decide where to plant your blanket for the day.
Good rest is important for vacations! That's why we take pride in offering newer and comfy mattresses in all bedrooms. You'll also find bright and airy living spaces everywhere and newer AC.
Cooking in? Our full sized kitchen and appliances also feature essential and extra spices and seasonings, plus all the cookware you may need and a Bosch dishwasher to make clean up hassle free.
And, the house is in tip-top shape, since we enjoy it in the off-season and keep a very high and fussy standard of care. All in a quiet family neighborhood, where you can walk and bike in the street with not a car in sight.
Gather around the firepit for lazy summer evenings with cool beverages and maybe some oysters, lobsters or steaks. Or, enjoy our big, roomy enclosed and private outdoor shower to rinse off the remains of the beach while looking up into that clear blue sky. Or, grab coffee out on the deck in the morning, listening to the birds and sea breezes.
Walk down to the Fairway for fantastic breakfasts and the Hole in One for coffee and handmade donuts. Or check out Local Break and Nauset Ice Cream or Ben and Jerry's. Karoo offers fine South African cuisine, too!
Access to the famous Cape Cod Rail Trail is only half a mile away, where you can go biking, strolling or running. Family entertainment? After the beach, grab the fam or friends and head out to one of the world's last remaining drive-in movies in Wellfleet. All within minutes of the Barking Urchin.
You can also make use of our full sized Weber kettle charcoal grill and beach chairs and sand toys as available. While we love them, we're afraid that we cannot accommodate any pets, please.
Come home to the Barking Urchin in Eastham for your memorable Cape Cod vacation!
