Description

Description

If you long for the days of old when things were a little more quiet and simple, Eastham still has that feel of ''Old Cape Cod.'' It's a small town with all the simple pleasures that life has to offer.

Enjoy your stay on “Old Cape Cod” in this charming, antique c1725, 4-bedroom, 3/4 Cape house. Built before the Revolutionary War and the signing of the Declaration of Independence, this enchanting Cape Cod home would suit two families very comfortably. On the first floor, relax in the family/living area which boasts one of two fireplaces and a wood burning stove, very wide pine floors and authentic beamed ceilings. The 13'x26' front to back 1st floor Master Bedroom includes the 2nd fireplace on a wide, beaded pine-paneled wall...all original. Authentic wide pine floors, beamed ceilings and a cupboard with Sandwich glass still in the door as well as most of the windows add to its Colonial charm. A king size, traditional style poster bed, equipped with a memory foam ''Natures Rest'' mattress sits in the center of the room in front of the fireplace.
The first floor level has 1 full bath, an eat-in Country Style kitchen which seats 6 comfortably, high-speed WiFi, VCR/DVD player and 34'' high def cable TV.

The second-floor has 3 bedrooms. The 1st bedroom is a comfortable size Master Bedroom with a Queen size sleigh bed. The 2nd bedroom is also fairly large with 3 twin beds-including 2 antique brass beds and a twin bed with a trundle. The 3rd bedroom is a smaller private bedroom with a twin bed. A half bath sits in between the 2 larger bedrooms.
Fans are included for all 4 bedrooms, if needed and the nights do cool down by 10°.
There are 2 AC units for the 2nd floor.

Outside on the brick patio is a Weber gas grill, Adirondack rocking chairs, a picnic table with an umbrella and a fully enclosed outdoor shower with attached changing room. A washer/dryer is located in the basement.

There are also plenty of board games available to play including chess, checkers, twister, Monopoly, Shutes and Ladders, etc. It's a great way to spend an evening with the kids.

This 4 bedroom home sits on an acre lot that is shared with 2 small one bedroom cottages one of which is the owners who is also available for questions, advice or local recommendations.
There is plenty of room for the kids to play, ride their bikes or have wiffle ball games. The property and neighborhood are pet friendly.

Eastham is also considered the Gateway of the “Outer Cape” and the beginning of “The Cape Cod National Seashore”, it sits in between Provincetown {the furthest tip of the Cape} and Hyannis which is only a ½ hour drive either way. Since Eastham is on one of the narrowest parts of the Cape, the ride from a Bay side beach to one of the Ocean side beaches is no more than a 10-15 minute drive or a 20 minute bike ride.

While staying here you might feel like you are back with the Colonialist and Pilgrims of our great country, back when America was not the ''United States of America'' yet, but just 13 Colonies. Symbols of the original 13 Colonies are still evident in the original construction and finish woodwork of the home.

Campground Beach is just 6/10 of a mile walk down the end of the road on the bay side with a nice little convenience store (3/10 mile) half way between the house and the beach. During low tide you can walk out between a 1/2 mile to a mile. It is great for the little kids who like to play in warm salt water puddles, dig for clams, or build sand castles to the sky.

Don't miss coming back to the beach at night to take in the beautiful Ocean Sunset, which is not a common site if you are from the East Coast because of the way Cape Cod curls around at its elbow as you head toward the tip of the Cape…. The Bay side begins to face towards the West and you get to experience one of the many simple, magical pleasures of “Old Cape Cod.”

The Cape Cod National Seashore was established in 1961 to protect the sheltering dunes and beautiful coastline. Eastham has two ocean-side beaches on the National Seashore: Coast Guard Beach, which always rated one of the top 10 beaches in the whole Nation, and Nauset Light Beach. Both beaches mark the beginning of 30 miles of National Seashore which stretch all the way to Provincetown.
The red and white Nauset Lighthouse is said to be the most photographed site on Cape Cod.

Get up early with your family or your spouse and take a bike ride on the Rail Trail, which runs 24 miles from Dennis through Eastham and into Wellfleet. Later that night take a friend or the family to the ''Wellfleet Drive-In'', located just 2 miles away in the town of Wellfleet. The ''Wellfleet Drive-In'' is a blast from the past.

Stop in any morning 2 minutes down the road to ''The Hole in One'' donut shop on Rte 6 and get yourself a delicious cup of coffee or tea and/or a ''taste bud screaming'' homemade donut or muffin.
There are many fine local Restaurants as well, The ''Lobster Pool'' which has great lobster and seafood, The ''Friendly Fisherman'' where you can eat outdoors and byob. The ''Fairway Restaurant'', which has a good combination of all foods especially their creative pizzas, and last but certainly not least ''Arnold's Restaurant.'' on Rte. 6 and the bike trail aka The Rail Trail.

    Beautiful, centrally located home

    This is a wonderful antique home that was extremely quiet and comfortable! My husband and I were very happy staying there for a week. Since there were only two of us we only used the first floor and the temperatures were in the 70s and it was very comfortable - we used a fan one day. It is centrally located to beaches, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, shops and restaurants including a big Stop and Shop. One morning I was sitting on the couch and saw several cardinals sitting in the bushes right in front of the window - it was amazing. You can get Netflix, Hulu, etc on the TV. The bed and the furniture were very comfortable. There's a washer and dryer too which is always a bonus.

    Patrick, the owner, was very kind. He was always available when needed but aside from that we only saw him a handful of times.

    It was a very nice rental experience and I would definitely stay here again or suggest to friends.

    Campground Road to Relaxation

    We had so much fun at Patrick's and our first stay in Eastham. We rent at the Cape every year since 2012 and this was the most beautiful charming cottage yet. It's a historic Billingsgate Island Cottage that was rescued and floated to the mainland when the island eroded. The wide floor and wall boards and exposed beams reminded me of the Paul Revere House in Boston. A king bed in front of a fireplace added charm to our master bedroom. Tiffany lamps light your way around the cottage at night. The outdoor shower is adorned with shells. Irish quotes decorate the wall make you smile.
    Our host was responsive and fast. He answered all my questions before coming. He's charming and kind. He allowed us to have a fire in his firepit for s'mores one night, our first fire pit experience on the cape. He gives us plenty of space because he lives in another cottage on the property but we were happy to see him when he was around. It was my first experience with a host and renting on WeNeedaVacation.com and it added pleasantly to the whole experience.

    Loved Our Stay

    We had such a great week in Patrick's house. It was immaculate, spacious, bright, and very comfortable. Patrick was very welcoming and responsive. He was quick to respond to our questions, provide recommendations, and share suggestions for places to eat. We would definitely stay here again!

    Great time

    Great house with so much character and plenty of room. The history of the house was so amazing and interesting. Great location and Patrick was so helpful and made us feel right at home.

    Don't be fooled by the advertised A/C

    I agree with the other reviews about the historic cottage and the perfect location. Unfortunately, we had a few problems as well. There is still no microwave. There is a convection oven which takes about 15 minutes to make toast. The kitchen is too small, and too hot to have more than one person in it at a time. Patrick is available as needed but I think he was just counting heads. We had 8 guests and he asked multiple times how many guests there were. It felt as though he was trying to catch us doing something wrong. The biggest complaint is the advertised A/C. There is no A/C in the living space or the master bedroom. There are window units in two of the three bedrooms upstairs. With temperatures in the 90's, the A/C was a necessity, not a luxury. It was almost unbearable in the living area/kitchen. And surprise, Patrick deducted $85/week from the deposit because we used the air conditioners. show more show less

    I first need to state that this is my first negative review in 17 years(since 2006) of doing vacation rentals and not everyone will be happy or reasonable.


    There is a microwave in the home that is sometimes stored in the closet instead of on the counter because not everyone uses a microwave and it depends on which guest is there.

    This particular guest was there for 2 weeks and never asked me where it was while they were there.

    The toaster oven works fine, I suspect they weren't using it right.


    There was damage in the house which the guest denied knowing anything about.

    The freezer door would not open without pulling very hard on the handle. Hard enough to where it felt like the handle would literally come off. The guests were there for 2 weeks with different people visiting during their stay and they claimed that they knew nothing about it; there's no way someone wouldn't have known this.

    There was also a lampshade broken that they denied knowing anything about.


    There is supposed to be an 8 person limit for a 4 bedroom house per the town of Eastham and this guest had more than 8 people staying at the home. I don't mind it going over once in a while if needed but I wasn't even asked and they lied about this as well.


    They were not charged for any of these 3 items above and should have been.


    The AC units for the 2nd floor are expensive to run so if they are used I ask guests in our initial correspondence if they wouldn't mind shutting off the AC units during the day when no one is home. My ad has always clearly stated that the AC is only on the 2nd floor and fans on the first floor and this guest knew this from the beginning.

    They had them on 24/7 for 2 weeks.

    I also spoke to them about this while they were here so they did end up getting a charge for the extra use of the AC units.


    They also left their car keys behind for one of their cars and complained to me that I didn't mail them back quick enough.


    This family for some reason didn't want to take responsibility for anything or follow some basic reasonable rules which is not helpful for future guests who want to stay.


    Some guests need to remember that you are staying in someone's home and some homeowners eventually make the decision that it's not worth the aggravation to do summer rentals.

    Nice place, great location!

    Rented and had a great time. Can't beat the location, between Ben and Jerry's and campground beach. The owner, Patrick was helpful and generally available if needed.

    We had a full house, and while there was plenty of seating for the 8 of us, there were a few moments where we had to cram and/or move chairs to fit us all.

    One heads up, there is no microwave. This isn't a bad thing, as we only missed having it once.

    All in all, I'm looking forward to next year already. show more show less

    Great Place!

    We really enjoyed staying at this c1725 house and the owner, Patrick was terrific. The house is beautiful with lots of character with wide pine floors and original beams - really lovely.

    The house is spacious - there were 5 of us staying there and we could all gather together or spread out into individual rooms as needed. We had the misfortune to be there on a VERY cold, windy and rainy Memorial Day weekend so we spent a lot more time in the house than we might otherwise have done so. We were so glad to be staying in such a great place - and Patrick went out and cut down more firewood to load us up for the weekend. We used the wood burning stove - which was lovely to sit around, drinking our coffee in the morning and chatting at night before bed.

    Patrick stopped by to apologize for the weather (not his fault!! :-)) and to ensure we had everything we needed. He really cares about his tenants. Given the weather, we didn't really use the outdoor space around the house but we did appreciate that there was lots of space to hangout outside, have a campfire, grill, etc.

    The location is lovely - easy to find, but off the beaten path too. I highly recommend this place and hope I'll get a chance to rent it again!

    I have been doing vacation rentals in Eastham since 2006.
    I came to the Outer Cape in 2004 to do a renovation and addition on a home near the water in Eastham which lasted for about 5 months. It was during those 5 months that I fell in love with the Outer Cape. I found a fixer upper that was for sale that I kept driving by on the way to my job and one day I decided to put in an offer which was accepted and within 6 years I was living here full-time but in those first six years I was spending more and more time here every year than in Boston where I lived.
    I like to tell people that the Outer Cape kidnapped and seduced me with its raw natural beauty, it's peacefulness and a little slower pace.
    Since I grew up in the city of Boston, this was a big lifestyle change for me that still seems to have my interest almost 20 years later.
    Whenever I go back to Boston to visit, which isn't much these days, I can't wait to get back home over the bridge.
    There's a saying amongst those who live here that it's hard to go back over the bridge to the main land and I use to think that was funny or silly but now I'm in the same boat as the rest of them.

    What is special about this property?
    The home is 6/10 of a mile from a popular Bayside Beach and 2-1/2 miles from Nauset Light Beach on the Cape Cod National Seashore.
    For an Outer Cape Town, there are many nearby conveniences sometimes more so than if you were living in the city.
    The house was built in 1725 and used to be on Billingsgate Island which was starting to erode by the forces of the ocean in the late 1800s and the last building, which was the lighthouse, was washed away by one final storm around 1910.

    What is special about your town?
    Many conveniences for a small town like a great hardware store, an electrical supply store, a plumbing supply store, a barber shop, a dentist, family owned convenience stores, a brand new Cumberland Farms, 2 post offices which don't always communicate too well together and some good dining and casual restaurants.
    Beautiful Beaches like Coast Guard Beach which are always rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the nation. And we have beautiful and unique sunsets almost every night.
