About Joseph Weihs

I live with my family in Massachusetts and spent part of my childhood in California. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my kids.

Joseph Weihs purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Joseph Weihs chose Eastham

Location location location! We have been vacationing in the Eastham area for some years and fell in love with the beaches and nature. This cottage was just at the right spot to access the beaches as well as provide a calm retreat at the pond.

What makes this cottage unique

The pond and the location: Lovely pond views from the cottage and easy access to both bay and ocean beaches. Game room and space for kids to roam.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at our little cabin in the woods! It is in a perfect location, and is well stocked. We loved feeling like we were in a treehouse as we watched the birds go in and out of the trees.

quaint and cozy peacfull

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing week, enjoying the pond and it's pleasures. We fished off the little pier, used the rowboat, spent time reading on the deck, and felt very comfortable. The game room supplied a book I could not put down, and we played shuffle board a few times. The cottage is conveniently located near the National Seashore, as well as the other beaches on the bay side where the most beautiful sunsets appear for our delight. Mostly the cottage is comfortable and well supplied.

Nice little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cute and cozy cottage, especially sitting on the deck overlooking Minister's Pond. Location is pretty good, close to beach and grocery store. Kitchen provided everything we needed, the cottage is well-equipped in general. Joseph was very helpful when we had a problem with the heating and reacted promptly. The only thing which was a bit annoying is that we had to bring our own linen, which is not very practical when you fly to the States like we did from Germany. So we had to rent linen for 45 Dollars for four nights. But all in all, we had a very pleasant stay here!

The cottage is located close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail:

The Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) is a paved bikeway that runs 25 miles from South Dennis to Wellfleet. The terrain is relatively flat with some minor grades in certain sections in the Lower / Outer Cape areas, specifically Orleans and Wellfleet. It easily offers the greatest variety in scenery and natural landscapes of all the regional bike paths.

The trail stretches from Route 134 all the way to Lecount Hollow Road in South Wellfleet. The name stems from an old railroad right of way it follows, which transported passengers and freight to Cape Cod in the early 1800s until around 1960. The CCRT is managed by the MA Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). It passes by many local points of interest and several areas with lakes suitable for swimming / picnicing, including Nickerson State Park in Brewster.

Continuously monitored by local police bike patrols, this paved path is a safe and enjoyable way to spend a Cape Cod summer day. Traveling through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet, the smoothly-paved surface (akin to gravel asphalt) makes the CCRT ideal for cyclists, walkers, inline skaters and runners. Bicycle and rollerblade rentals are also available at various bike shops conveniently located right along the trail in Dennis, Brewster, Orleans and Wellfleet.
