About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Completely remodeled, Cape-style, two bedroom, waterfront, vacation cottage in Eastham, Massachusetts, available for weekly rentals for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Enjoy our private freshwater beach including the use of rowboats, dock, and swimming platform! Relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the 21-acre Minister Pond from the large, well-appointed living room.

Our cottage (named the 'Cast Off,' which means 'to let go') is located in a private location (Cottage #7) in the Nauset Haven community and positioned in close proximity to the Cape Cod National Seashore with all its great beaches. Also close are the many beaches of Cape Cod Bay, as well as restaurants and shopping in Eastham, Orleans, Chatham, Wellfleet, and other great Cape Cod towns!

Our cottage has all the conveniences of home (and then some) in a lovely Cape setting. Rinse off or clean up in our new outside shower while overlooking the pond.

We offer free wireless high-speed Internet access and free long distance phone calls anywhere in the US.

On site are rowboats for our renter's use, a dock, swim platform and our own beach where you can relax. Our pond is great for swimming and fishing!

About The Owner

My wife and I are proud owners of our cottage, the 'Cast Off' in Eastham, MA.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Cape Cod

We have been traveling to the Cape for vacations for many years. We fell in love with this area of the Cape and the National Seashore. There is so much to see and do!

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is located in the best part of the Cape (my biased opinion, of course). The National Seashore is less that a mile away, as are great restaurants, bike trails and Bay beaches.

Our new favorite place to stay on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned on the Cape and have been going back every year for our anniversary - 19 years now. This cottage was by far the best place we've stayed. It is very clean and decorated perfectly. It felt so warm and comfortable and we were able to relax and enjoy the calming view of the lake. I love to cook and was very happy to find everything I needed in the kitchen. My husband loved to get up early and go fishing off the dock, catching bass and pickerel. It rained all weekend so we weren't able to take advantage of all of the outdoor amenities but are looking forward to enjoying them on our next stay which will hopefully be sooner than next year!

Best cottage location on the cape

  • 5 of 5

If you like to see beautiful beaches you want to stay in Eastham. Close to the national seashore. Nausset light beach is easily one of the top 5 beaches I have ever seen, and I have been to Hawaii, Aruba, Cancun, and the Bahamas.

Great cottage on an beautiful pond in center of Cape Cod.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great size. The boys loved the pond, the floating dock and the row boats. The playground and courts were also a big hit. The proximity of the two bike trails was awesome and be able to bike ride to the beach was an added plus.

We spent 4 wonderful days in the cottage and we loved it. The view on the lake is wonderful, the cottage was very clean and comfortable. The situation is perfect, near the bike trails and near the beaches. It is a very quiet place and the outside shower is fantastic. Wifi is working very well and the kitchen/living room is spacious. It was a very nice place to be.

I'm going to keep my review very short and simple........The Cast Away Cottage on Minister Pond is PERFECT! It holds my family of 5 perfectly (kids 12,10,6) with a bunk bed for 3 in 1st bedroom and a 2nd bed room w/ a queen size bed. The kitchen/living area is spacious and has all the modern conveniences of home. The outside shower is a fantastic bonus, I think the only cottage w/ one in that location. The cottage is ALWAYS very clean, neat, organized and clutter free which I totally appreciate. It is decorated very tastefully unlike some other places I have visited...... The pond is great for fishing, boating, and exploring and provides hours of entertainment for the kids.

It is centrally located to almost anywhere you need to go from the bay, ocean, shopping, name it!

Thanks Ed and Sara, you do a terrific job with your home away from home and appreciate that you open it to us every year!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can make this short and sweet- I have been coming to Cape Cod for 40+ years and this is my absolute favorite place to stay. I feel like we can have a perfectly relaxing vacation while never leaving Nauset Haven. The ocean, bay, great restaurants and never disappointing trails are all just a bonus... The immaculately clean cottage, the comfortable accomodations, the fully stocked kitchen, and the options for WiFi, air conditioning, and out door showering make this cottage choice a no-brainer to all people who can respect the beauty of the Cape... LOVE IT!
