    Very private and well-equipped

    My husband and I really enjoyed the cottage… especially the outdoor shower and the deck with all the trees. We made some lovely meals and were really impressed with all the kitchen supplies. We were also amazed at all the beach chairs and kids beach toys in the basement, as well as a washer and dryer. Super helpful!

    We also enjoyed the friendly neighbourhood cat and the family of wild turkeys who visited the property. :)

    Next time, we'd love to return with our bikes, as the cottage is located very close to a bike path.

    Would definitely recommend!

    A very pleasant week

    We really enjoyed our stay at Steve's cottage and would recommend it highly. The location was ideal for us - close to Herring Pond, First Encounter Beach, and the bike path. The house itself is very comfortable, and we appreciated the outdoor shower and large deck. Steve was a very responsive host.

    I spoke to Julie several times, in regards to the house cleaning. My cleaner made a mistake and did not have the 7/8 date on her list of cleaning dates, for my cottage. I e-mailed her the date list, with the 7/8 date clearly on it, and she admitted the error. She apologized for making the mistake, but the damage had been done. I offered to have the cleaners return right away, but Julie had already done the cleaning. I refunded Julie the full amount of the cleaning and she thanked me profusely for doing that, even though she and her husband had to do the cleaning. The lack of cleaning was no fault of my own and resulted in a four star rating, instead of a five.

    Sparkling clean…inviting, large deck that allows one to be transported to the "land of relaxation"…open floor plan…comfy, large sofa…, walk to the bay..walk to the pond…a small market with a great deli two minutes away…what more does one need?
    Oh, yes…a caring, kind owner who is a pleasure to communicate with. Meet Steve, owner and most gracious host. This cottage has it all!

    We have been vacationing at the Cape for over 30 years. Guess what? This is truly our best "find"!

    Gorgeous rental

    We stayed here for a week for the first time this summer. It was the perfect size for my fiancé, myself, and two kids. The house is well cared for, all the basic necessary essentials. Very conveniently located near first encounter beach on a very quiet street!!! Plenty of sleeping space, and the beds were very comfortable. The deck was probably our favorite, by far. So spacious for grilling and dinners outside. The outdoor shower is also a nice touch for sandy days. I would definitely stay here again, and definitely recommend if you're thinking about staying here!! The owners were also very responsive and friendly and answered all of our questions! Thank you both show more show less

    Fabulous spot!

    The cottage is very well-equipped and just as it was described. The deck is large with plenty of seating, lounge chairs, etc. It is surrounded by woods and shrubs, so it feels very private and secluded. Steve, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. We loved it and hope to rent here again.

    Great Vacation Home

    My husband and I rented this lovely home on short notice in June 2022. We have been renting the same place in Truro for over 25 years but learned it was sold and scrambled to salvage our summer! We loved this Eastham property, from the comfy beds to the well-appointed kitchen to the wrap-around deck. We highly recommend it and hope to return for 2 weeks next summer!! The owner, Steve was great to work with!

    Wonderful Cottage & Location

    We have stayed at this cottage since 2018. This is our fifth trip. We love the location, it's near the beach, ponds and bike trails. Steve the owner is very helpful, and will answer all your questions. The cottage has a new gas grill that is excellent, it's also very clean & comfortable. We are coming back in October.

    Perfect Cape Cottage

    We had the best week at this perfect Cape cottage. It had everything we needed and the location was ideal. An easy bike ride to the beach (no parking fees!) and the rail trail. The Eastham Superette just up the road has any necessities you need and awesome sandwiches. Quick 30 minute drive to Ptown. The huge deck is perfect for drying off after your outdoor shower. Quiet neighborhood with little traffic. Can't wait to go back!

    This cottage has been in my family for fifty-three years. It started out as a shell and my handyman father worked on it, over the weekends, for years, as my mother and I did the ''gopher'' work. A wraparound deck and sliders were added about fifteen years later. Improvements were made over the years. Originally, we had no telephone as it was truly a ''weekend escape''. My father and I would go to First Encounter Beach every Sunday morning and watch the jets, from Otis Air Force Base, ''bomb'' the James L. Longstreet with sandbags. My parents most prized possession was the cottage and their love of Cape Cod, particularly Eastham, was passed on to my wife and I, and our daughters


    What is special about this property?
    The cottage is in a great location. It is close to seven bay side beaches, the bike trail, Great Pond, Herring Pond, Wylie Park, and The Seashore National Park. There is a walking trail almost adjacent to the property on Samoset. Sitting on the wraparound deck and reading, at the end of the day, is a special way to end the day. On Mondays, during the summer, there are free concerts, on ''The Green'', at the Windmill. A ten minute drive gets you to the Wellfleet Drive-in. It is such wonderful ''change of pace'' place to be. It's almost like a ''Hallmark Movie'', set during the summer

    What is special about your town?
    Eastham is the ''Old Cape''. It is slow moving, relaxed, and not at all commercialized. Orleans is right nearby and has everything you need, as far as shopping. Eastham, Wellfleet, and Truro, are where people go to truly unwind. The beaches are beautiful and the bay side water is warm. The tidal pools, at lowtide, are so much fun for kids, parents and grandparents alike. It is Paradise, as I tell my friend who now lives there year round.
