About Cindy & Jim Mill

Our family of 5 is from Massachusetts and the New England area and moved for a job opportunity to Minnesota a few years ago. We still spend a few weeks every year in our cottage and have many good friends who take care of the property for us.

Cindy & Jim Mill purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Cindy & Jim Mill chose Cape Cod

This cottage was perfect for us with our three young daughters. Secluded, safe, off the beaten path, quiet yet close to everything.

We searched all over the Cape for a few years before being fortunate enough to find this unbelievable place on the very best part of the Cape.

Being so close to the Bay and Ocean beaches along with the accessibility to Eastham, Orleans, Welfleet and Provincetown was important to us.

The outdoor shower was (still is) one of our favorite features ~ even in the Spring and Fall.

We built the fire pit in the front of the property and create many memories with our family, extended family and friends out there every year.

What makes this cottage unique

The attached screened-in porch and adjacent deck allowed us (and still does even though our girls are almost teenagers now) to get the girls to sleep and still stay up listening to music, entertaining friends, etc. on the porch without disturbing the girls.

Being so close to the Bay side beach (Cooks Brook) allowed us to make quick trips back and forth from beach to cottage and back, and allowed for tons of fun at high and low tide for our whole family.

We are also able to enjoy the nearby Ocean beaches (Nauset, Coast Guard and Marconi) and make the most of our Cape Cod experience every time we're there.

Nauset Ice Cream features unbelievable homemade ice cream and is only 5 minutes from the cottage. This was a definite plus for us ~ along with the incredible and nearby fish markets in Eastham, Welfleet and Orleans.

4th of July on Cooks Brook Beach is a ton of fun where you'll be able to watch fireworks up and down the Cape Cod Bay.

The yard is not grassy however it is large enough for kid and family games and running around. Being on a cul de sac on a private road allows for a lot of space to play without any traffic.

Last but certainly not least, the SUNSETS on Cooks Brook Beach (pictured above) are absolutely incredible and make for a nice evening walk before or after dinner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to Thank you for the cottage rental. My family and I had the absolute best vacation. Sunny and a bit breezy but otherwise perfect. Your cottage is truly a hidden gem. It was perfect.

Thanks again!

Great location for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time in this area and first time staying at this cottage. We liked it very much and found it very clean, fully functional and quiet despite relatively close neighbours. A short 3 minutes drive to the beach on the bay side. I would return in a heartbeat!

Quiet and relaxing. Good location and especially loved porch!

  • 4 of 5

Was as described but for not having sand chairs, which made it 4 vs 5 stars. Owner was apologetic and suggested we purchase and get reimbursed but guess I was not in mood to shop:) Kids brought hammock and lived in it when at cottage. We all liked porch and nice fire pit. Walked to bay beach a couple times but the drive to Oceanside beaches was easy-went early as they sometimes fill up.

Overall, great location and accommodation.

Perfect location, full of charm!

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Hideaway was everything my family was looking for! You can't beat the location- Eastham is close to everything you need: amazing beaches and a quick zip to Provincetown- and the cottage itself is within a few miles of SO many great beaches! Even though there are other homes nearby, the wooded lot provides maximum privacy and really adds to that 'tucked away', secluded feeling we wanted. Highlights of the home are definitely the screened in room (beatiful, perfect for curling up with a book), the outdoor shower (we never want to shower indoors again!) and the firepit (great for quiet evenings). Cindy was available and perfect to deal with. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again!

Cozy private little beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time in Eastham at the cottage. Fit our family of 5 perfectly. We enjoyed the porch and ate dinner there nightly and played games. We use daily the fire pit and roasted marshmallows and enjoyed taking the bikes out on the nearby bike trails for rides to the beach. The location is perfect. Quiet private neighborhood and close to several beaches. We went to 7-8 beaches (both ocean and bay side) while we were there. It is a short trip up route 6 to Provincetown and there are restaurants, mini golf and a drive in theater near by. The cottage had everything we needed adthe renters were lovely and easy to get in touch with. I would definitely recommend staying here
