One mile to First Encounter Beach (bay side). Less than a mile to Herringbrook Pond (fresh water). One and a half miles to Nauset Light Beach and Coast Guard Beach (ocean side). Convenient to Orleans with shopping center and direct access to the bike trail at the dead-end of Ireland Way.
Equidistance to Provincetown and Hyannis. Whale watch from the former and shop in the latter.
Eastham is 'old Cape Cod'. Delightfully rural with the best beaches on Cape Cod. 3 miles between ocean and bay; it doesn't get much better than this.
Clamming on the flats at low tide (permit required) will make you feel like a native. Enjoy the best seafood at home or at local restaurants.
Traffic isn't a problem, once you get here. Bridge Road in Eastham connects Orleans to Wellfleet without the traffic. On Sunday or Wednesday, the Wellfleet Flea market is a must. Local vendors have bargains galore.
The weekly newspaper, The Cape Codder, will be waiting for you. Check it out & Enjoy
Other Activities: The local theatre scene is fabulous. In Orleans, there is The Academy of Performing Arts. One of the frequent lead actors is in the family so we're quite proud of this venue.
There are other theaters, in Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. And, the Cape Playhouse, in Dennis, is know for their fabulous equity theatre.
The Wellfleet drive-in theatre is one of the last remaining in the nation. If they are offering a show you'd enjoy make sure to go. Your kids will love the experience.
In Dennis, at the Cape Cinema, adults will enjoy the unique atmosphere and the great selection of films they offer. It's only about 20 minutes from the house and perfect for the (ugh!!) rainy afternoon.
Brewster's Museum of Natural History and Wellfleet's Audobon are great for all. They are well staffed and offer insight to the Cape and it's natural habitat. The Cape Cod National Seashore has a wonderful space in Eastham and varies their programs.
The Cape Cod National Seashore is in Eastham! The displays and films are all free so stop to learn how the Cape was formed. From there, walk the beautiful bike path to Coast Guard Beach.
Golf: Golfing on Cape Cod is available year round. There are five beautiful public courses (one for each day of the week) at Chequessett Yacht and Country Club in Wellfleet about 5 miles from the house (508-349-3704), The Captain's Golf Course in Brewster (508-896-1716) about 5 miles from the house, Harwichport Golf Club about 25 miles from the house (508-432-0250), Highland Golf Links in Truro aoubt 8 miles from the house (508-487-9201) and Blue Rock Resort and Golf Course in South Yarmouth about 8 miles from the house (508-398-9295).
Cape Cod Hospital is 30-40 minutes and there is also Fontaine Medical Center 20-25 minutes away.
Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: My first visit to Cape Cod was as a middle school student from Connecticut. It was love at first sight - I said to myself, "someday, I'm going to live here". And, in 1979, with my husband and five children, ranging in age 3-13, I did. The family run motel business that created the move, however, proved way too overwhelming for the busy life required to raise a large family. After 5 years - to the day!! , the motel was sold and the house at 90 Ireland Way was built and became home. Cape Cod Community College is a wonderful resource for education on the Cape. It provided me the opportunity to get an education, be a stay at home mom and assist my entrepreneur husband who was then building houses for a living. (90 Ireland Way is the result of that endeavor). Renting the house in the summer, after the children were grown and on their own, was the plan. However, after graduation from an off-Cape college, it was evident that my marriage couldn't survive the change. Renting the house then became essential for repairs and maintenance. So, for the past 15 years, many different families have enjoyed a summer vacation on Cape Cod in this wonderful family home. The house has become even more important to my children - all adults now - and my grandchildren, too. My oldest granddaughter, named for me, loves this house and considers it "home". For her 21st birthday, she asked if we could celebrate at Ireland Way on the Cape. And, of course, we did!! Of all the holidays we've enjoyed over the years, this past Christmas was the best. In spite of my foot surgery, the kids made sure that we were together and would have a great holiday together - and we did! This holiday season, the house is available for you to create your own special family tradition. Available now throughout the year, we hope you will have a special experience and create a special family memory.
Why the Owner Chose Eastham, MA, USA:
Eastham is delightful: 3 miles wide from ocean to bay with many beautiful ponds as well. It is a family focused resort town boasting the National Seashore Visitor's Center. Beach days at bay, ocean or ponds will put you into a new relaxed mode. Bike on the rail trail, relax on the expansive deck and just 'be' on your vacation. Great seafood store (Mac's) will provide the freshest locally caught fish or eat out at one of the many fine restaurants. Grilling on the deck is definitely an easy option.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
90 Ireland Way was built as our family home in 1984. Five children enjoyed growing up here and many of their local friends considered the house their 'home' as well. Since they are now grown and living alone or with husbands and children, the house has been enjoyed by summer vacationers for the past 20 years. During the off-season, we gather for holidays and memorable occasions. Add 90 Ireland Way to your vacation memories - it's a house meant to be enjoyed for just this purpose. Eastham is equi-distance from Provincetown and Hyannis. It's an easy drive to enjoy whale watching (recommend Provincetown for this) where several boats are available. Sport fishing is fabulous at Rock Harbor in Orleans, 5 minutes from the house. You can charter a half or full day in advance. The house provides ultimate privacy in an upscale residential neighborhood. Early mornings are perfect quiet time to enjoy the deck with that first cup of coffee. Convenient to back roads, it's possible to drive to Orleans or Wellfleet without using Route 6, thus avoiding traffic. A Super Stop and Shop is 5 minutes away, in Orleans. Also in that complex is a TJ Maxx, a favorite for discount shoppers. The Christmas Tree shops have a store just down the street from TJ's and offer a variety of super priced items ranging from home goods, toys and snack foods. Chatham is a lovely 'village' of shops that make walking down Main Street a pleasure. You're sure to find just the right item to retain your Cape Cod memories or even a gift for the person watering plants at your house. There are several restaurants to enjoy here, as well. Menues are in a notebook at the house. You'll be able to choose which restaurant is the right one to celebrate a special evening or for the whole family to dine together. For the whole group, you might want to go to Moby Dick's in Wellfeet. It's not far from the house and they specialize in local, fresh seafood.
