Map

This serene 3 bedroom pond front cape cottage is located minutes from the Nauset Lighthouse and the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor's Center. Eastham’s ocean and bay beaches are a hop, skip and a jump away.

The Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 28 mile long paved bikeway which runs from South Dennis to Wellfleet, can be accessed about 1/4 mile from the cottage. The trail offers the most variety of scenery and natural cape landscapes of all the regional bike routes. We are also equally close to the Nauset Marsh Bike Trail, a 1.5 mile trail that ends at Coast Guard Beach and which provides a panoramic vista of the Atlantic Ocean.

The casual Arnold’s Restaurant is a short stroll from the cottage. It is considered by some to be the best venue for fried clams on Cape Cod (it is also known for its gourmet ice cream cones).

The view from the deck is glorious. Edenic.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with many charming touches. We have enjoyed the location which is very near local beaches and main roads yet hidden away

and so quiet and peaceful. Eastham Public Library and other local spots are a plus.

Dennis Playhouse was great to visit. Provincetown only half an hour away and always worth exploring. So much more to do and see on our next visit out here.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the cottage is very restful, the deck overlooking pond is great for reading a book and observing all the bird activity. Being close to Coast Guard and Nauset Light beaches is a big plus, the town beach in Orleans is also very nice. You have easy access to RT 6 because of the stop light at Nauset Rd and Rt 6, very important with summer traffic. There are many good restaurants in driving distance.

A cottage you will want to return to!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful two week stay and will rent this cottage again on our next trip to Cape Cod! Very central location on the Cape. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped. Enjoyed swimming and fishing in the pond after a day at the beach. Loved having all of our meals on the large covered deck, in a very quiet setting. Very friendly and helpful owners! We highly recommend this rental!

A true Cape Cod experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed at this cottage for several summers. It has everything a family needs for a Cape Cod vacation. The house is spacious, very clean and comfortable. The kids love the finished basement and of course the WiFi. We all enjoy the outside porch. We never ate a meal inside! The pond is wonderful for fishing and for taking a dip after a long day at the beach. One year we had kayaks delivered to use in the pond. The cottage is close to all the major beaches and in a great neighborhood for early morning walks and close enough to walk to the famous Arnolds for dinner. Cheryl is the perfect landlord. She thinks of everything and is available should you need anything during your stay. Our family highly recommends this cottage, you won't be disappointed.
