One of the important aspects to us about sharing our house is cleanliness. We have been renting for 15 years and have received many compliments about how clean people find the house when they arrive. In fact, we've been called, ''the cleanest cottage in Eastham!''
What is special about this property?
We are so proud of the fascinating and unique history of our charming, authentic Cape Cod family cottage, which was originally part of a popular cottage colony on the Town Cove in Eastham, known as Cedarcrest. Its rich and unusual history was featured in Cape Cod Life Magazine in 2002.
Please come and experience it for yourself, and be sure to leave your own message in the guest book so you, too, will become part of the unique fabric of its story. There is an old Cape Cod saying that says 'if you go home with sand in your shoes, you will surely return.' We hope so!

The town of Eastham is quintessential ole' Cape Cod....charming, historic and unspoiled by development.

It is a small town with a very large and fascinating history. It's convenient location is equidistant to both Hyannis and the whaling and art community of Provincetown. Fishing, sailing, motor boating, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and sculling abound. Many guided water activities and boating activities can be arranged at Hemmingway Landing near Fort Hill.
In addition to the ''old'' it also houses a brand new, state of the art library, many gift shops and delicious seafood restaurants and the famous Arnold's Clam Shack...not to be missed! Best onion rings, fried clams on Cape Cod! Just ask the Phantom Gourmet who made a recent visit.
