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!

What a great week we had!

We spent a week at this lovely cottage. It is so well appointed - Louise has thought of everything - even beach towels and chairs available for guests to use! And, she is so thoughtful - offered to pick up take-out for us since we got caught in traffic!

The house feels bigger than it is, thanks to the high ceilings and open living area. It is very comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed - beautiful appliances. The outdoor space is superb...the covered area off the kitchen to store things out of the weather, the deck and that pool!! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and seating around it. The fire table was great - nice to sit out at night and enjoy a cocktail.

Louse & Tom were so helpful and responsive to our questions. We were sad to leave, and hope to be able to return there, perhaps in the fall and hopefully next summer. Thank you Louise & Tom!!

Relaxing Oasis

My wife and I spent a lovely week here. Everything was just as promised. The house is extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed. The outdoor amenities are truly exceptional -- pool, outdoor shower, fire pit, grill, outdoor dining table, and lounge chairs. We also appreciated the reliable wifi, washer and dryer, and well designed kitchen. Highly recommended.

Spectacular stay

Often a home doesn't quite live up to the pics, but in this case, the pics don't do justice to this wonderful cottage, yard, and pool.

The cottage strikes a great balance between great design while being very comfortable and feeling lived in. The back deck is a lovely place for morning coffee. The POOL, wowza. We were blown away by how beautiful it was, the landscaping, everything. It was a million degrees the week we were there and the pool made all the difference.
/>Sunset beaches just down the road were amazing. And our dog LOVED daily walks over to Wiley Park (just a few hundred feet down the road from the cottage you can enter paths). She loved hiking, playing with other dogs in the clearing "dog meet up" spot, and splashing around in the water (so rare to find dog friendly places in the summer in the water!).

Louise made sure we were happy, comfortable, and well taken care of (and even gave us a peek at the main house next door--also gorgeous if you need more space!).

Overall, we'd be back in a heartbeat. Thanks for making our week so special.

Retreat from City Life

We had a truly wonderful month-long stay at Alewife Cottage. Louise was very communicative, helpful, and incredibly thoughtful throughout our visit.

The cottage is very comfortable, beautifully decorated, has a great layout - with so many thoughtful touches that made our stay a joy. The kitchen is terrific, and the open ceiling/skylights make the main living space bright and cheerful. We really enjoyed the plantings and animal/bird-watching on the property. The pool was a most welcome relief on the few really hot days.

The easy walking distance to beaches (and sunsets!) at Cole Rd or First Encounter are a real treat! The owners are warm and friendly, and show that they sincerely care about their guests' comfort. It was a lovely retreat from noisy city life. The owners have created a delightful and relaxing atmosphere, we will be back for sure.

Peaceful Retreat

I spent a lovely two weeks at Alewife Cottage with my dog.  We were both welcomed quite warmly, and the owners were very attentive to any needs that arose during my stay.  The cottage itself is immaculate and just beautiful; it's hard for pictures to do justice to the soaring ceiling in the main living area and the abundance of natural light. The kitchen is well stocked and there is ample everything you can think of, including linens, pillows, and towels for muddy paws after a fun time at the beach.  The wifi allowed for smooth video calls and the smart TV was great too. In general the space is thoughtfully designed and tastefully decorated.  Not your typical vacation rental.

The proximity to two beaches and a pond/hiking trail couldn't be beat, and there was much to explore in the area.  As a busy professional I was looking for a peaceful place to take a break. The cottage itself, the beauty of the surroundings and the kindness of Louise and Tom made that a reality.  Plus, as everyone's been saying...the beds were incredibly comfortable! Will definitely be back.

Private, quiet & comfortable retreat

I recently wrapped up a 2-month stay at Alewife Cottage while my house was under renovation. It was wonderful to have this full-amenity home as a retreat during that process. It worked great for me, as a work-from-home professional.

And its close proximity to Cape Cod Bay and oceanside beaches - along with the wooded trails of Wiley Pond - meant many options for walks with my welcomed dog.

While Louise's primary residence is next door, there's plenty of privacy, with a stockade fence as a separation. And the open-plan design with fully equipped kitchen and large, flat-screen TV helped make the stay feel like a real vacation. Also, as others have said - great bed! show more show less

Wonderful Cottage

I just returned from a lovely week in this home. The hosts were responsive and easy to work with and the home was a perfect escape. Amazing kitchen, bed, and location. Highly recommend.
