All of these establishments offer different atmospheres and dining experiences.
Cape Cod National Seashore : The Cape Cod National Seashore was created on August 7th, 1961 by President John F. Kennedy to protect the sheltering dunes and beautiful coastline.
Eastham has two ocean-side beaches on the National Seashore: Coast Guard Beach, which was rated one of the top 10 beaches in the Nation, and Nauset Light Beach. Both beaches mark the beginning of 30 miles of shoreline stretching all the way to Provincetown.
The red and white Nauset Lighthouse is said to be the most photographed site on Cape Cod.

About Patrick J. Oser
Hello, I'm a builder from Boston where I was born and raised my whole life. I graduated from Catholic Memorial High School and then went on to Wentworth Institute of Technology which are both located in Boston. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction Technology from Wentworth Institute of Technology and started my building and remodeling business by accident while I was a Junior. I fell in love with Eastham and the Outer Cape a little bit everyday after working in the area for about 5 months back in the spring of 2004. I kept driving by this Antique Cape house that was built in c1725 and it was on the market for a while. I was already falling in love with the area and the Outer Cape so after taking a look, I put in an offer and bought the house. I like to tell people that the Outer Cape kidnapped and seduced me and it still has a hold on me. I always loved the older houses with their quality, charm and detail so to have the opportunity to buy a house that was from the colonial days where the Fore Fathers and Founding Fathers of our Nation lived was exciting for me. I do hope you enjoy your stay here as much as I have.
Patrick J. Oser purchased this House in 2004
Why Patrick J. Oser chose North Eastham
This property has a peaceful feel to it and the Outer Cape area is just beautiful. Time slows down a bit on the Outer Cape. As soon as you come over the bridge onto Cape Cod your worries will start to melt away. Those are not my words but the words of many family and friends that come to visit. I fell in love with Eastham and the Outer Cape a little bit everyday after working in the area for about 5 months back in the spring of 2004. I kept driving by this Antique Colonial Cape House that was built in c1725 and it was on the market for a while. I was was already falling in love with the area and the Outer Cape so after taking a look I put in an offer and bought the house. I like to tell people that the Outer Cape kidnapped and seduced me and it still has a hold of me. I always loved the older houses with their quality, charm and detail so to have the opportunity to buy a house that was from the Colonial days where the forefathers of our Nation lived was exciting for me. This home was built 50 years before the beginning of the American Revolution in Lexington and Concord Massachusetts and 51 years before the drafting of the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams of Quincy MA. Thomas Jefferson wasn't even born yet and wouldn't be till 18 years later in 1743 . To think that some of those rugged colonial pilgrims that founded our Country lived in this house was stirring to me. I love the history and the thought of who use to live here. This home use to be on Billings Gate Island which is 3 miles off the shores of Campground Beach on the bay side. The island can still be seen at low tide and it is still visited. Around 1910 this fishing island community finally gave way to mother nature and erosion. They finally floated this house and a few of the other 35 houses across the bay to Eastham and some also went to Wellfleet in an effort to save them. I do hope you enjoy your stay here as much as I have.
What makes this House unique
I think one of the most unique benefits is the ability to see a sunrise on one of our beautiful National Seashore Beaches in the morning and then at night only 3-1/2 miles away you can enjoy our beautiful sunsets on Cape Cod Bay which are uniquely different every night. No 2 sunsets are ever the same! We also have one of the only 3 Drive In Movie Theaters left in the State of Massachusetts 2 miles from the house in Wellfleet called 'The Wellfleet Drive-In'. There are so many convenient accommodations for such a small and rural town. I grew up in Boston and there are as many everyday conveniences in Eastham as there was in my neighborhood in Boston. Conveniences like stores, food shopping, clothes shopping, great restaurants, Dunkin Donuts as well as home made donuts and coffee, plenty of antique shops, churches, hardware and supplies local dentist and local barbara shop etc. There is also the Cape Cod Rail Trail which is a 22-mile (35 km), very safe, paved rail trail located very near or about a 1/2 mile to the property just off Rte 6. The trail route passes through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, and Wellfleet. It connects to the 6-plus mile Old Colony Rail Trail leading to Chatham, and 8 miles of trails within Nickerson State Park. It also passes near the end of the Nauset Bike Trail leading to Coast Guard Beach in Cape Cod National Seashore. Short side trips on roads lead to several other national seashore beaches as well. The Cape Cod Baseball league is one of the premier amateur baseball leagues in the country and is played all over the Cape all summer. It attracts the best college talent from around the country and most of them have to be invited. Many players in MLB have played in the Cape Cod Baseball League and it's where you can see future stars play before they make it to the big league.

We had such an amazing time at this house in Eastham! So much so that we even extended our stay.
We've stayed in the area during the first week after labor day week for several years - but this is the first time we stayed here. Definitely not the last!
The owner Patrick was very easy to communicate with and very responsive. He has a house on the property as well, but it's a very large area and he's very busy, so we barely saw him. It was nice to know that he was only a phone call away if we needed him, though we didn't.
The house was very clean and comfortable and had so much character. It's an older historic house and had many antiques. The master BR is very large and has a beautiful king bed with a very comfortable mattress.
The queen BR upstairs had a mattress just as comfortable! We had access to everything we needed (beach chairs, towels, outdoor shower, outdoor dining aresa etc).
It was great to be so close to the beaches on the Bay side. I truly have nothing negative to stay. We're already looking forward to staying here again next year!
Lovely Antique Cape
We had an absolutely lovely time staying in this historic home in North Eastham. We enjoyed the location and the tour of the house when we arrived. Patrick, the owner, was most helpful and informative. The house was comfortable and clean and we enjoyed using the picnic table and fire pit. There was plenty of space to spread out, both inside and outside of the house. We love the fact that it was just a short drive to Coast Guard Beach, restaurants, the bay beaches and shopping.
This was a vacation to remember, as we had our two grown daughters and their families with us and everyone had a wonderful time! Thanks for the memories, Patrick!
We actually stayed here for 3 weeks and absolutely loved it. The house has so much character and a really incredible story. The upstairs bedrooms are small but not cramped and really perfect for a vacation. The owner Patrick is right there if you need anything (which was very convenient a few times) and was very helpful about where we could take the kids and which beaches would be the most fun.
The beach is a short walk (about 15 minutes away) with many other beaches a short drive away. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and would recommend it,
charming house, great location, friendly owner
Beautiful vintage house within a short bike ride to campground beach and great pond (stunning). Highlights of the house are the master bedroom with super comfy king bed and the out door shower. Patio equipped with grill is great for eating out. Relaxing hammocks near the patio. Owner lives in another house on the property but is not invasive and will let you be. We got along with him very well and our kids especially loved his dog so we enjoyed their company and liked having him there. Property has large drive and yard for kids to play and ride bikes.
Great rental close to beach
Rented this charming Antique Cape for a week with the entire family consisting of 6 adults and 2 kids. great property close to beach, plenty of space in the house, great outdoor grill and patio with a nice outdoor shower. We were even allowed to bring our 2 dogs!! Patrick the owner is very friendly and always here to answer questions or help out if you need anything. Definitely worth renting if you want to enjoy a great week at the Cape on the bayside!!
We had a wonderful week at 175 Campground! Patrick, the landlord lives behind the property and was always available for any questions or concerns. We arrived to an adorable, immaculate cottage with Patrick waiting for our arrival to show us around. Our 2 daughters and 2 nieces ages 24-26 loved the place. They stayed upstairs in the bedrooms and were comfortable with the fans in the evenings. (there was a heatwave that week) The downstairs master bedroom is HUGE with a kingsize bed. The outdoor shower was also clean and spacious. We used it all week. Patrick's dog Simba and our dog Charlie got along great. I would highly recommend this place for a family of any size and age group.
The home sits on a 1/2 acre lot that has plenty of room for the kids to play, ride their bikes or have whiffle ball games. There are plenty of places to park either on the left side of the house where the circular drive is located or off to the far right hand side of the property away from the play areas. The property and neighborhood are very pet friendly. Campground Beach is just 6/10 of a mile or a 10 minute walk down the end of the road with a quaint little convenience store half way (3/10 of a mile) between the house and the beach. During low tide you can walk out between a 1/2 mile to a mile. It is great for the little kids who like to play in warm salt water puddles, dig for clams or build sand castles. Don't miss coming back to the beach at night to take in the beautiful Ocean Sunset, which is not a common site if you're from the East Coast The owner has a small 1 bedroom cottage behind the main house in the back of the property. Should you ever have any questions or need any recommendations during your stay please don't hesitate to ask or give him a call. They are more than willing to be of assistance to help steer you in the right direction Other Activities: Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, Rollerblading or walking. Kayaking is also very popular in Eastham since we have some of the most beautiful, scenic and best places on Cape Cod to Kayak. Be sure to ask Patrick where some of the best spots to go are. The Cape Cod Baseball league is one of the premier amateur baseball leagues in the country and is played all over the Cape all summer. It attracts the best college talent from around the country and most of them have to be invited. Many players in MLB have played in the Cape Cod Baseball League and it's where you can see future stars play before they make it to the big league.
