Wonderful stay in Eastham!

  • 5 of 5

The Seavy's cottage, right next to the National Seashore Visitor Info. Center, was a great place to stay. The location was perfect for exploring the outer Cape, with restaurants and shops nearby. The cottage was cozy with a comfy bed on the 2d floor, a very well-equipped kitchen, outdoor picnic table, grill, Adirondack chairs and a hammock. The cottage was well off busy Rte. 6 and was quiet. Lovely grounds and a little pond with turtles to check out.

Charm of Old Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were guests of Sue and Paul in August of 2011. Not only was the cottage and its location reminiscent of the unchanging qualities of the Cape we remembered from our living there in the past, but also Paul and Sue were great hosts. The cottage is well located, convenient to Orleans, Cape Cod Bay, the ocean beaches, Wellfleet and Provincetown. The Cape is a great summer playground. Their cottage makes it perfect.

We just returned from a week's vacation. We wish we could have stayed longer! We loved this romantic cottage and its quiet location. The owners are very sweet and helpful. Our child had such a great time exploring the grounds with wild turkeys, snapping turtles... we even spotted a deer. A true gem!

Awesome family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is situated within the National Seashore area and is located centrally to everything on Cape Cod. The best kept secret about this rental is the owners who stay in the main house on the grounds. I felt they made our entire vacation complete. They have everything there you forget at home, and are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the Cape. We spent time with them everyday and even had a cookout together! They made us genuinely feel at home and at ease. Great vacation spot for couples with two children and they even have an cottage style apartment connected to the main house if grandparents or other family members want to join in! It is rented sepearately so be sure to ask! The bike trail to Coast Gaurd Beach and Nauset Light Beach is just pedals away and a perfect distance for small children to ride as well. (about 1.5 miles one way to Coast Gaurd Beach) Great for running as well-you can go 3 miles to about 6.2 if you continue to Nauset Light Beach. The bay side beaches are a short drive away and the kettle ponds are all over. Great Pond has the best swimming experience in Eastham if you prefer warmer/calmer water and is very close as well. This was our first time to the Cape and we will definitely be going back next year to stay with Sue and Paul!
