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

Lovely retreat

I spent a long weekend here with my dogs and could not have asked for a more comfortable, relaxed lodging. From the well-equipped kitchen and thoughtfully-appointed living room to the excellent mattresses (both human and canine) and ideal location - a short walk to bay, trails, and ponds - Louise's cottage was perfect. I look forward to returning.

Very cute cottage, highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed here for Thanksgiving and it was a perfect cozy little cottage for the 2 of us. Louise went out of her way to let us check in early and accommodate our travel plans as well as offer up hikes, trails, and activities near by. The cottage has a great updated kitchen, perfect to make meals at home. Given the cold weather we didn't spend much time on the outdoor deck but I can image it's a great space to unwind on summer afternoons and evenings. I rarely have positive reviews for beds but the mattresses, pillows, and bedding in the cottage were incredible - very comfortable. We didn't need the 2nd bedroom as there were just 2 of us but it would be plenty of space for a second couple. The dining area and living room was spacious and great for watching TV/movies - we spent the week working remotely and Wifi was no problem.

You can tell Louise has put a-lot of thought into making this cottage very livable and comfortable for her guests. The neighborhood is quiet and First Encounter Beach is less than a 5 minute walk away. It's also about a mile down the street from the Eastham Superette if you need to walk and grab coffee, sandwiches or any last minute grocery items. We will certainly be back to stay - cannot recommend the cottage enough!

Fabulous Peaceful Place Right Next to the Bay

I spent five weeks in this lovely cottage this Fall - what a perfect experience. It was serene, well equipped, beautifully decorated, and a very short distance to the Bay - First Encounter Beach. I was so happy to be able to bring my puppy, enjoy autumn on the Upper Cape and greatly enjoyed the hospitality of owners, Louise and Tom. I will be back!

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful cottage for 2 weeks and had a terrific time! The cottage was so tastefully decorated and designed perfectly for maximum use of the space. As the pandemic was still foremost in our thoughts, this place was well suited for a beautiful change of scenery and safe harbor. We cooked many meals utilizing the great kitchen amenities!

We brought our dog with us and the dog bed provided by the owner was an added plus.

Most mornings we took the short walk to first encounter beach or cook's beach with the dog (permitted after labor day) and thoroughly enjoyed the time. The proximity to the bike path was also fantastic, less than a mile away and an easy ride on the path in both directions! Our favorite restaurants were nearby and provided curbside pick up and the Eastham Superette was great to pick up small items needed for dinner. The television was also a nice surprise with all the premium streaming channels for movies and tv shows. The deck was used almost daily and the perfect spot to take an afternoon nap or read. The outdoor shower was nice for beach days and the owner quick to respond to any questions.

We would definitely stay here again, thank you Louise!

Paradise on the Outer Cape

We couldn't have asked for a better location or cottage! We thoroughly enjoyed morning coffee on the deck, cooking in the great kitchen, and epic games of Uno in the comfortable living room. We loved being so close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, walking distance to First Encounter and Herring Brook Beach, and a quick drive to the National Seashore. An unexpected perk was the short walk to the trails of Wiley Park, where we could kayak and swim with our dog. All in all it was a perfect week on the Cape. show more show less

We loved this cottage!

We had a delightful stay at Alewife Cottage. It's a lovely cottage in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood. Finishes are high end, and décor is tasteful and well done. The cottage was spotlessly clean. Bedrooms are cozy, beds are extremely comfortable and the back deck is perfect for morning coffee or after-beach barbecues. Central air ensures that the cottage is comfortable (even during a 90+ heat wave!). The cottage is conveniently located within a half-mile of both pond and ocean beaches. Shopping and dining options are nearby as well. The owner is gracious and welcoming, without being intrusive. She even provided a comfy bed for our dog! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return. We recommend without reservation! show more show less

My husband and I have lived and traveled around the world, especially in the Caribbean. We have worked as producers, art directors and set designers for film and television. We love natural settings and wildlife and keep our home free from unnecessary chemicals and harmful pesticides. We hope you enjoy alewife cottage as much as we love it!


What is special about this property?
I love the area we live in. Some of my realtor friends call it the Gold Coast because of the beaches so close by. We are within walking distance to several bay beaches and two ponds and town conservation land is about 200 yards away. It's spectacular location. Our cottage is well designed, modern but classic and with beautiful furnishings and art from our lives and travel

What is special about your town?
Eastham is the gateway to the outer Cape
We have a long list of gorgeous bayside beaches and the Atlantic National Seashore. Aside from the salt water beaches are numerous fresh water lakes and ponds. There are miles of hiking trails and beautiful neighborhoods, and of course the beaches, bay and ocean.
