About the property

3 Bedroom House On 3 1/2 Wooded Acres In Cape Cod National Seashore

Our house is a traditional Cape Cod located on three and a half wooded acres in the Cape Cod National Seashore 300 yards from Coast Guard beach, described by the Wall Street Journal as “one of the five best beaches in North America.” It is also very close to a paved bike trail that connects to the Cape Cod rail trail, which runs all the way from Dennis to Wellfleet. Eastham also has several beautiful fresh water ponds, with guarded beaches ideal for children, as well as a lovely Cape Cod Bay beach, where kids can walk out for a mile when the tide is low.

The house has three bedrooms, each of which sleep two. There are 1 ½ baths, with a tub and shower upstairs and a powder room and shower downstairs. The ground floor has a very large living room with a picture window with a view of the salt- water Nauset Marsh and East Orleans across the water, WIFI, a den with satellite TV, VCR and DVD, and a medium sized fully equipped kitchen. We also have a washer/dryer, microwave, outside (cold) shower, and charcoal grill. The best part of the house is a large screened in porch which is breezy and cool in the summer time. The porch has a picnic table where we eat most of our meals. There is a stereo with speakers in the living room and on the porch.

SECLUDED COTTAGE. QUITE, PEACEFUL. BUT CLOSE TO EVERYTHING. short walk to a very nice beach or you can drive, we walked. there are clean restrooms there and outdoor showers. We have been three years in a row the same time of year. If you need an up scale modern place this is not for you. But if you like a nice quite relaxing place to get away this is the place. If you like to read check out the books in this place. The cottage is located between Chatham and Province Town. Great Places to eat and shop in either direction your right in the middle. We love it. I would buy it if I had the chance. Oh and we get to bring our dog.

Beautiful Cape Cod Cottage in Eastham - a great spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at this cottage, and have returned a number of times because it just doesn't get any better than this! The cottage is clean, comfortable, and has lots of spaces for everyone in the family to find a spot to relax and to get a real feeling of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Coast Guard Beach at the National Seashore is within walking distance, and we love not having to drag a ton of stuff with us to the beach. If we want lunch, we take a quick walk to the cottage to eat, and then it's back to the beach to hang out or walk along the marsh or the beach. There's also easy access to the bike trail for walking, biking, or running - again, just a couple of minutes from the house. The owners make sure that everything you need is there for you, from tons of dishes and gadgets, to good working appliances, to comfy chairs and sofas. There's a huge screened porch with tables and chairs for dining "al fresco", as well as big living room that overlooks the marsh for lounging around, reading a book, doing a puzzle, listening to music or relaxing and listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. We also love being able to hop in the car and get to good restuarants and walking trails in the area. It's really been a great place for our family to regroup and to spend time with one another in a beautiful and peaceful location!

One of our favorite vacations to date!

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Just a five minute walk to coast guard beach. Adorable old three bedroom cape. Good size house...two full bathrooms, huge living room, separate den, kitchen and a large wonderful screened in porch. We all loved this house. It had everything we needed and oozes charm. The only reason we give it four and not five stars is because the bugs in this area are awful and you can't spend time outdoors at the house but the porch does make up for it. We really were too busy enjoying the beautiful beaches to spend too much time at the house anyway.

Very comfortable Eastham beach house in natural ocean setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful summer vacation on the cape staying at this house in Eastham. The house is a very short walk to Coast Guard beach, which is an absolute gem at the beginning of the Cape Cod National Seashore. It’s close enough to the ocean to hear the roar of the surf when you wake up in the morning and when you go to sleep at night. It’s also right along the Salt March National Park trail system and an easy couple of mile bike ride to the Cape Cod Rail Trail access point. The house itself is very comfortable. Not new but clean and well cared for so we very quickly felt right at home. The kitchen was fairly well equipped, again not new but very functional with plenty of pots/pans/ dishes/glasses etc. The downstairs had both a large family room and a separate smaller reading/TV room. Our family of five including three older kids (14, 18, 21) were able to comfortably spread out and not feel on top of one another but still feel like we were all together on vacation. There is also a very nice screened in porch, which we used one evening in particular to entertain friends. The house is equipped with wi-fi, which managed to support simultaneous online gaming and Netfix streaming without too much buffering. There were also bookshelves throughout the house filled with a very eclectic range of fiction and non-fiction books. The upstairs has three decently sized bedrooms (note: three queen sized beds). There was also both an upstairs and downstairs bathroom with showers along with an outdoor shower to rinse off beach sand. The location in Eastham was perfect for us in that we wanted a quiet, natural setting but also access to good dining and other attractions. Orleans was 15 minutes down the road so plenty of nightlife and shopping. We spent one cloudy day up in Providencetown, which was about a 50 minute drive with traffic. Coming home that night took us 35 minutes. Wellfleet, Brewster, Chatham and other surrounding communities as well as Eatham also offered lots of shopping / restaurant / nightlight options. Overall we really enjoyed this house and would recommend to others. The owners were very nice and easy to work with.
