About Tara Goss
Our love story began at Truro Elementary when we were seven years old. Chip drew a picture of a house and a flower and passed it to me in class. Many years later, divorces, grown children, and living in different parts of the country, we are back together sharing a house and flower gardens.
Why Tara Goss chose Eastham
A great deal of love and care goes into preparing for each guests stay. We strive to help the guest make memories of a lifetime. We have been told time and again that the location is perfect for a vacation on the Cape because of its proximity to all points. Just steps away from the bike trail, you can ride anywhere. The bay on one side of us and the ocean on the other, with only a few miles distance from each other.
What makes this House unique
Directly on Ministers Pond with our own private dock which is perfect for coffee in the morning or settling in the evening with a glass of wine or tea. We pride ourselves on the attention to detail and special bonuses that we include for our guests. We are walking distance to a bike shop if you want electric bikes, or you can use the bikes provided. There are gardens for cutting fresh flowers. Special touches for those looking for a spa-like experience. A fire pit and wood provided for s'mores. Lots of unique and special touches for our beloved guests.

A place where memories are made
The house was conveniently located off route 6 (Ministers Pond provides a nice buffer from this well traveled path) and is just down the road from the Cape Cod Rail Trail, Salt Pond visitors center and many must-visit restaurants including our favorite C-Shore.
When we stepped inside we were greeted by a large, clean and airy space. The full-size kitchen, sitting and dining areas made us feel right at home, the bedroom was cozy and comfortable and the lovely decor evoked that classic Cape Cod feeling.
The house is surrounded by an expansive deck with sitting area, fire pit and outdoor shower and we made use of all of these amenities! We enjoyed a fire one night, and stargazing on another (we counted seven shooting stars and were able to see the beam of the nearby Nauset light sweeping across the sky).
In the mornings we had our coffee out on the dock on the pond below and when our mugs were empty we enjoyed paddling the canoe through the calm waters.
Eastham is a great location on the Cape, from which it is easy to get to attractions like the Rock Harbor fishing pier (sunsets here are NOT to be missed), Nauset light and Wellfleet Drive-in.
This place guarantees a memorable stay, a relaxing escape and insures that you will want to return!
Thank you for visiting us and for the lovely review! Come back & see us anytime!
Ministers pond property
A charming property with plenty of amenities~ dock to the water, canoe, fire pit and bikes. Inside the aesthetics were soothing and calm. A full size kitchen completed our wonderful stay in Eastham. The host was gracious and welcoming.
Thank you for staying with us! We will see you again soon, we hope!
Very enjoyable space. See myself returning here
Perfectly quaint cottage
Our stay at this quaint cottage matched exactly what we were looking for -- great location, not only that it's a mere hop skip & a jump to the pond, but close to all North Eastham (and beyond) has to offer. The cottage is well maintained, nicely decorated, and well stocked with amenities including laundry, outdoor shower, large deck, and grill. Owner Tara has also provided assorted and miscellaneous sundries to cover anything you may have forgotten to pack. A great stay for a couple -- highly recommended.
Our guests receive a state-of-the-art house guide that includes recommendations on food, activities, and so much more!
