About Bill or Deb Bennett

We are the Bennett Family From Saratoga NY. Bill, Debbie, Jessica, and Rachel have been vacationing in Cape Cod for 24 years. We have stayed all over the Cape and by far, Eastham is our favorite. We love the National Seashore, and the nature and beauty of Eastham. After years of vacationing, we knew this is where we permanently wanted to vacation; so the cottage on beautiful Minister's Pond was purchased.

Bill or Deb Bennett purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bill or Deb Bennett chose Eastham

This property is unique for it is nestled in the woods on a beautiful pond and you feel so relaxed like you are far away from everything but in actuality, everything is all around you. We love the feel of the cottage which reminds you of old Cape Cod, with a rustic knotty pine kitchen, lake front, and fire place. The ultimate in relaxation.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the view from the back porch. In the morning the sun streams through the clouds and settles on the shimmering lake. We love the natural sounds of the pond and the beauty of nature that surrounds us. On chilly evenings the brick fire place provides a cozy atmosphere.

A perfect place to relax and unwind for all ages

  • 5 of 5

This small but perfectly formed, well maintained cabin was the perfect place to spend a week relaxing on Cape Cod after a busy few days sightseeing in New York. It looks out directly over the pond with easy access to the small beach and dock. We loved swimming in the pond, with the kids loving using the row boats and jumping off the pontoon. We had everything we needed in the cabin including excellent wifi (essential when you have a teen and a pre teen!), lots of cooking equipment, comfortable beds and good cool air options. Nauset Haven is close to all the amenities of Eastham as well as great Cape Cod Bay and Atlantic coast beaches and is about 30 mins from Provincetown. Dealing with the owners, Bill and Debbie, via the website from the UK was easy and gave me confidence that all would go well. Thanks to you both for letting us use your gem of a holiday home.

Great location, really nicely renovated.

The house was in a nice location on the pond. Close to beaches, restaurants etc. Very convenient. Just a bit small for 2 teenage boys and 2 parents.

This updated, cozy, clean, waterfront cabin was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 y/o son this summer and had a great time! The cabin was bright and clean and had every amenity we could want. We enjoyed lounging by the pond and taking the rowboats out and exploring the various beaches and restaurants of the cape. We've stayed in other cabins at Nauset Haven in the past and this was our favorite. We look forward to returning!

A perfect reflection of what The Cape is all about

  • 5 of 5

Oh my gosh! This was the perfect place for 4 women to enjoy lazy mornings and quiet evenings. My favorite 3 cousins and I spent a week on the Cape and used this lovely cabin as our "base Camp". The cabin is a perfect reflection of what is great about the Cape. Its casual enough to be so comfortable yet is up to date in the decor as well as super clean. It had all the supplies we needed. They even had lobster bibs, napkins and tools to have a lobster dinner (which we did- and laughed through the entire experience as we tried to dissect steamed losbsters).

The location was within 10-15 minutes of beaches which is where we spent most of the afternoons. The evenings were quiet. In fact, I'm concerned that our laughing may have disturbed others as I never heard any noise from any other cabin while we were there.

This was my first visit to the Cape and if/when I return I can say I don't need to look any further for a place to stay. This will be my go to property!

Perfect Cape Cod Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at The Capehouse 2 years in a row now. After renting multiple houses on the cape we finally found one that is perfect for us. Having the pond right outside for boating, fishing, and swimming is excellent and the beach is only a five minute drive. The house is centrally located to all the things we love to do; the beach, hiking, kayaking, trips to P town and the well fleet drive in! The house is more than roomy and accommodating, we've even been told it's the best one at Nausett Haven (and I believe it). The owners are always very responsive to any questions or concerns we have had. We look forward to going back in the years to come.
