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.
