About Betsy St. Germain

For over 20 years, we have spent one or more weeks each summer in Eastham, visiting friends and enjoying the natural beauty of Cape Cod. In those few weeks each summer, we.. walked the beaches at sunrise and sunset; enjoyed campfires on Coast Guard Beach; held Kids Night Out at the Pizza Barn; planned evenings out in Provincetown; biked the Cape Cod Rail Trail; enjoyed Lobster Night with friends and created many more traditions. It has always been a special vacation for our family, and even now our grown-up children still hold out a week to come with us!

We live along the coast of Maine and we are very excited about our Cape Cod cottage so close to Coast Guard Beach!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect for 5 of us. Very neat, clean and comfortable. Coast Guard Beach is walkable; you can also walk a shorter distance to the beach shuttle. Easy drive to restaurants, Orleans, Wellfleet, etc. and Bayside beaches.

Highly recommend. Owners are fantastic!

Owner's Response: Thanks John, I am so happy you and your family had a wonderful week! You are so right, location is key for access to the beaches and area restaurants. Coast Guard Beach is a 5 minute bike ride! The less time spent in a car, the more beach time you have = vacation relaxation!!! Hope to see you again next summer!!

Great, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! You might expect a rental to be a bit bare, but it's the opposite -- comfortably furnished, very nicely decorated, stocked with all the kitchenware, beach supplies, etc., that you could need, and just generally cozy. You can tell a lot of thought went into making it nice. And the location is great. We felt at home in five minutes and had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying in our little cottage! The weather was perfect and you were so close to Coast Guard and Nauset Light beaches! Vacationing longer than a week is always a good decision! So glad your family found the cottage comfortable and in a great location. Thanks again Charles!

The cottage is cozy and functional.

  • 5 of 5

The location is very convient. The house is just one and half miles from the coast guard beach or two miles from nauset light house beach. It is easily accessible with bike trails. Besides, you can find very good restaurants in Orleans or in Wellfleet. The cottage is newly remodeled and cleanly maintained. We like to relax in the backyard or on the deck. Comparing with my friends rental nearby, this one is a gem.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dasheng, we think our cottage is a gem too! We drive down from Maine throughout the year to continue cottage maintenance and to improve the landscaping, which is a challenge in the woods of the National Seashore! Thank you for choosing our cottage!

Beautiful house with exquisite attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5

We were SO thrilled with our experience in this beautiful house! The house was so cozy, inviting and the decor was perfect. We were so blown away with the house because it was so perfect as far as location to beaches, bike path and tons of activities to do! There even were bicycles for us to use! The outdoor shower was fantastic and the yard was to die for. We loved everything about this house and the owners were so wonderful to work with and were so accommodating! We can't wait to book again!!
