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!
