    Excellent Cape Cod cottage

    We had an excellent stay and our host, Louise, was accommodating. The property is clean and lovely, and the pool is relaxing. The property is beautifully landscaped and very private. We want to go back next year.

    Great cottage!

    If you can believe it, it's nicer than the pictures. And the pictures are beautiful! The cottage is clean, modern, and very tastefully appointed. Louise and Tom are great hosts, and incredibly responsive. Tom went above and beyond twice while we were there, once to provide a coffee grinder (which I really didn't expect) and once to help us out when we locked ourselves out. I'm saving the best for last, because the pool is amazing.

    One of our Best Vacations

    We have never vacationed at the cape, but decided to give it a try this summer and have fallen in love! Our trip to Eastham was amazing, and Louise and her home were part of what what made it perfect.

    Louis is a gracious host. She met us upon arrival to walk us though the home and had dinner waiting. She made herself available the rest of the time as we needed for questions and tips. She also sent a list of excellent recommendations in advance.

    The home is beautiful and clean, and is stocked with everything you will need, inside and out. I was especially amazed by all the outdoor gear - towels, beach chairs, rafts, coolers and much more.

    The "cottage" is perfectly located, just a short distance to beaches (first encounter was our favorite), ponds, rail trail, eating establishments, etc.

    The gorgeous salt water pool, nestled in the beautiful landscape, was the cherry on top. We went from beach to pool throughout the day.

    My teenage boys (15 and 19) picking activities over electronics is a testament to all this place has to offer. I savored every minute with them (+ my daughter), laughing and having fun. I left today a bit sad to go but with so many memories. Thank you Louis, we will definitely be back!

    Kyle,

    I am so very happy that you and your family loved your vacation. It is so satisfying to know that guests are satisfied and comfortable. It is such a busy world with lots of stresses and vacations should be perfect. I hope to see you again next year and perhaps I can take you to some favorite local spots.
    warmly,

    Nice way to ring in retirement

    Perfect way to celebrate retirement and 60!!

    Our first reaction to the cottage was WOW this is much cuter than the pictures show. That's always a good start to any rental :-).

    Louise met us and gave us a quick tour and left us with a delicious dinner to kick off our stay. The cottage has all of the amenities you need inside as well as everything you need for the beach and pool.

    We quickly settled into a daily routine of morning and sunset walks to the bay beach, days at the National Seashore beaches and then back to the beautiful pool.
    Life cannot get better than that!!

    Louise and Tom were available for questions but were never intrusive. Although the listing states shared pool, Louise and Tom did not use the pool. Even so we invited them to jump in anytime. Great Hosts.

    The cottage is great, the pool area gorgeous, the outside shower is a must.
    I want to make quick mention of the frittata and asparagus treat Louise brought to us poolside the first evening... it was a delicious/fabulous surprise. Those little special touches make all the difference and make folks want to come back. Thank you

    One of our best vacation weeks!

    We were a little hesitant to book a Cape vacation in mid-June but the weather was fantastic! Even better was the Alewife Cottage. The kids loved the pool (no sharks in those waters!) and were content spending the day there. Louise is the perfect host- she provided great restaurant recommendations and there was nothing missing in the cottage. She also gave us the name of a great dog walker who took our dog out for a walk while we were on a fishing charter. Great place to stay and close to beaches! show more show less

    A special place

    Vacations are special and when you stay at Louise and Tom's you will have an amazing retreat to make great memories. No detail has been overlooked. The home is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are very comfortable and relaxing.
    The pool and outdoor shower are a favorite with the family. The gardens and grounds make you feel that you are in a private retreat.
    The location can't be beat, you are close to so many different activities and restaurants. We have enjoyed our vacations here very much and look forward to returning. show more show less

    Beautiful oasis

    Took the family down for a long weekend this October and had an amazing stay! Louise's home had a beautiful energy to it and felt comfortable and cozy. The pool was warm (even in October!) and offered a quiet getaway. Inside was immaculate and decorated with amazing artistic taste. Louise was so kind and attentive during our stay. Would definitely visit again!

    Delightful stay

    We stayed at Alewife Cottage for 2 weeks in mid September and had a wonderful time. Louise and Tom are gracious hosts who were very attentive to every detail. The cottage was beautiful-lovely inside and the landscaping was just gorgeous. The pool was fabulous. The hosts do visit the pool on occasion during the off season but this did not impact our stay and enjoyment whatsoever.

    Privacy and comfort is their utmost concern and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. We highly recommend Alewife Cottage! show more show less

    Idyllic Dream...

    This was our first stay at this newly renovated cottage in Eastham and we plan to return to this idyllic setting ASAP. Louise is a gracious host and she was both accessible and invisible during our stay, allowing us privacy and solitude, while also providing insight into special locations of interest that she intuited we would enjoy.

    We corresponded prior to our stay and eagerly observed the completion of the saltwater swimming pool via email. This is a true gem of the property, it is surrounded by a natural barrier of carefully placed trees and plantings that result in creating a peaceful oasis, no sign of neighbors or other intrusions. It's a pleasure to use the pool and the heated outdoor shower in this surprisingly private garden setting. The fencing and pathways are bright and clean, everything is in its place, and the peaceful surroundings are perfect for a quiet post-beach afternoon of reading on one of the many cushy lounge chairs.

    Every amenity you can imagine is here.
    A outdoor propane fire, grill, fridge with crushed ice dispenser, etc… all within walking distance of First Encounter Beach, Cole Beach, and Wiley Park Beach on Great Pond, accessible by walking a beautiful wooded path all from the front door of Alewife Cottage. Given the pandemic situation during our stay, we very much appreciated and enjoyed the kitchen and indoor/outdoor dining areas and cooked nearly all of our meals while we were there.

    The beds are very comfortable. So much so that we made a point of noting the type of mattresses on the beds. Comfy! At night, the beautiful pool is lit with a turquoise glow, illuminating the back yard and making a just-before-bed dip a luxurious decadence.  Cannot wait to return!

    Wonderful rental

    This is a great place! The house itself has a well-equipped kitchen, the beds are comfortable, and there's lots of light. The outside setting is fabulous. We loved using the heated salt water pool, the spacious outdoor shower, the generous towels, and the fire pit for nighttime conversations. Louise is a considerate host and attentive to guests, We would definitely return!
