About the property

Beautiful Cape Style Home A One Minute Walk From Private Beach on Cape Cod Bay

Our private, well-maintained home, is just steps away from Cape Cod Bay. Sleeps six (three bedrooms) with eat-in kitchen, full bath, and Wi-Fi, DVD and cable TV. Just a one-minute walk to a beautiful, private/deeded beach, down a dirt path. Especially good for small children since there is little surf. Large deck off the back of the house includes four chaise lounges, a table, chairs, umbrella, and charcoal grill. Perfect for cooking out! Eastham is a quiet town with plenty of amenities such as restaurants, ice cream and mini golf. Just 10-minute drive to the Wellfleet drive-in, Mass Audubon sanctuary, and the ocean if you'd like to try out some waves. It's also on the Cape Cod Rail Trail -- which you can access just up the road from the house! Your family's vacation awaits!

About Owner/Property Manager

I have been coming to this area of the Cape my entire life. Although I have done a lot of traveling around the world, it is always nice to have relaxing days on Beach Plum Lane.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Owner/Property Manager chose North Eastham

My family built this house in 1976. We had been renting in the area for a number of years and loved the vibe.

What makes this cottage unique

Our location is very quiet and private, you are surrounded by trees! The water view has been obscured by the trees, but you can hear the water lapping the beach at high tide. You have the benefit of being in a quieter part of the Cape while being close to whale watching, shopping, seal viewing a large grocery store and lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Rock harbor is a ten minute drive and you can go and buy the day's catch to grill over some nice hardwood charcoal if you don't feel like going out. We have has great comments from couples who want a quiet, relaxing time. We also get a lot of great reviews from families who spend hours playing in the tide pools at the beach when it's low tide. It's not for everyone. If you are looking to be closer to nightlife, this is not your place.

Quaint cottage perfect for a family

  • 4 of 5

This house was great! Only a few minutes walk to the bay side beach which was perfect with kids. The house was cute and plenty of space and sleeping room for all. Overall we had a fun time and I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet place in the outer cape!

Quiet could use a clean basement.

  • 3 of 5

This home is located in a very quiet area. Just a quick walk to the bay area. The basement was full of spiders and could use cleaning.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for alerting us about the spiders in the basement. We will let our cleaning company know so they can do a better job next year!

Clean, quaint cape home, walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house! It was clean, very well equipped for cooking, which is not always the case for beach houses. This was one of the most relaxing vacations I have been on, thanks to the conveniences, the location, both to beaches, attractions and all kinds of shopping! This was the first cape house my kids actually liked! And we've been going to the cape for years! The location although convenient, was secluded and quiet. Owner very responsive to questions! I would recommend this to friends and family!

Perfect Spot for the Active Family

  • 5 of 5

Charming cottage with a super location- walk to the beach, bike to Coast Guard Beach, bike on Cape Cod Rail Bike car necessary! This is a real plus in the summer traffic. The ping pong table in the basement was a happy alternative during the few rainy times, and there is ample storage for bikes and boogie boards, etc. Very clean, bright and well appointed. Although located in a residential community, it feels like you are the only ones there- very private! The owner was very responsive, welcoming and helpful. We'll be back!

Cozy Cottage near the bay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was comfortable for our family of 5. Ping pong table in the basement was a hit with the kids. Lovely porch with a peek of the beach. Two beaches within walking distance, one less than 5 mins and. the other 15mins. but larger.

Easy access to the bike trail and a fresh water lake. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to others.

It's a 1-2 minute walk to the private deeded beach from our cottage.

Located 15 minutes from the Wellfleet Drive-in.

The Mass Audubon sanctuary is a must-see, also 15 minutes away. They have excellent trails and is great for kids.

We are a ten minute bike ride from the cottage to the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
