    Beautiful cottage in a perfect location

    We loved our stay at Louise and Tom's cottage. It was perfect! I was here with my three children. It worked because the youngest still likes to sleep with mom. My teen daughter slept in the other room and my teenage son in the nook by the door. Everybody was content and comfortable Even though everything is curated in this beautiful cottage, from the art on the wall to the hand-made pottery dishes, it feels warm and cozy, not like a museum. We felt right at home and had absolutely everything we needed on hand. We all loved the pool with the Lucious vegetation all around. Louise and Tom live next door, are non-intrusive and always willing to help. Every suggestion from Louise was right on. The location was ideal as we could walk to the beach and ponds and very central on the Cape to get around. We highly recommend this place! show more show less

    A fabulous nest

    Our stay here - for the second summer running - was darn near perfect. This is a beautiful spot, well-situated near beaches and ponds, and wonderfully appointed with lovely furnishings and a secluded pool for hours of private relaxation. Louise is a gracious and efficient host. Recommend highly! And look forward to returning!

    Lovely cottage

    Our family of four plus dog stayed for a week. It was simply a lovely spot and vacation. The cottage was very comfortable with lots of charm. The owner left a delicious pie which was thoughtful. The location was great - we could easily walk and bike to bay side beaches. Everything for the beach was provided which is convenient - chairs, umbrellas, coolers, even a cart. There was also a pond with trails walking distance which was a daily trip with the dog to swim. What makes the property spectacular is the outdoor space - the pool is nestled in beautiful landscaping with comfortable seating and a fire table. I don't think the listing pictures do it justice- it's beautiful. show more show less

    a gem steps from Cole beach

    louise was a fantastic host and welcomed us upon arrival. the pictures match exactly with the experience, and in fact the property is even more cute than the images suggest. walk to beach is 10 mins (2mins on the busy road then ~8mins on the small side road), route 6 with shops/restaurants is 5min drive, and the great hamlets like wellfleet, orleans, and dennis are 10-20min drive. but its best to explore the local ponds and trails, and Louise will be more than happy to show you the way (or guide you, if you ask!) very relaxing property, would definitely return. thank you so much! show more show less

    Pretty much perfect

    Not our first trip to the Cape, but easily the best. The cottage is perfect- inviting and homey. The yard is terrific- private and well-maintained. The saltwater pool is ideal for when you can't make it to- or simply don't feel like- the beach. But the location, wow. Tough to overemphasize how perfect it is. Just a short walk from conservation lands and an amazing trail system that loops around nearby ponds, and only a bit further to two beautiful bayside beaches. We spent mornings at the beach, lazy afternoons by the pool, and evenings back at the beach to watch the sunset. Everything, including restaurants and stores, was close enough that we never felt rushed or stuck.

    Louise was a gracious host, taking us on a tour of the grounds as well as a short walk to introduce us to the nearby trails. She also checked in during the week to see how we were doing and if there was anything she could help with.

    Truly an amazing stay in every way- highly recommended.

    Dear Chris, Maggie and Ronan,
    I/we are so thrilled that you loved your stay. Nothing makes us happier than to know our guests are comfortable and enjoying their vacations. Vacations are so important to de stress. It was a pleasure meeting you and of course we would love to have you back!

    Amazing property

    We had a wonderful time at the Alewife cottage. The location is perfect for both the bay and ocean beaches and coming home to a beautiful pool finishes off a Cape day perfectly. The pool is even better than the pictures show with complete privacy. The house is as comfortable a rental home that I've ever stayed at. All of the little touches make a huge difference as you feel like you're in your own home. Louise makes sure that the pantry has the little things you don't want buy when on vacation and is available for anything you might need. The kitchen is stocked with high quality plates, glasses, cookware etc. which is a really nice touch. Wifi and all the streaming services make sure the kids are entertained when done with the pool. Just a few minutes from both Orleans and Wellfleet so close to tons of restaurants (Macs Shack was our favorite). We'll remember this vacation for many years. show more show less

    Vacation Bliss

    We once again counted our blessings on staying at Louise and Tom's wonderful cottage. The accommodations are warm and comforting. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The location is perfect to enjoy the beaches or to head off to the many attractions in the area. We would be off exploring and come home to peace and relaxation. We swam in their lovely pool and had a cookout for the whole family. The cottage is above and beyond most of what you will find on the Cape but what truly makes this rental extraordinary are Louise and Tom. Not only have they provided a top notch rental but they avail themselves and their extensive knowledge of the Cape to enhance your stay. Truly a remarkable find and one you will be happy you found! show more show less

    Magical Place

    This is our second year in a row staying at this cottage. We absolutely love the home, the pool, the design, and how Louise goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome, special, and taken care of. The cottage is so comfortable, and we really appreciated the A/C on hot days. It's well stocked, and there's really thoughtful touches beyond your typical rental such as hampers and bedroom closet organizers that make a difference. Everything throughout our stay felt welcoming and warm and inviting and made just for us. Once you leave the property, we were regulars each day for the epic low tides at First Encounter Beach, great for human walking, dog walking, sunsets. We love Mac's Shack in Wellfleet for seafood. And the pizza at Cshore is great! Thanks Louise for another wonderful stay, we can't wait to come back again. show more show less

    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.

    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.
