Description

Description

The ''BoatHouse'' is a 3 bedroom bungalow perched on a dune top, overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The cottage with wrap-around deck offers a great vantage point for sunsets. Warm tides and shallow water make the bay enjoyable for swimming, and the tidal changes create a dynamic and often spectacular backdrop.

While the BoatHouse has been expanded and recently renovated, it is rather unique in that it has a history dating back 300 years. The original 12 x 12 ft structure (now the living room) was originally located on Billingsgate Island (now Billingsgate Shoal -- submerged at high tide), and was floated to it's current location around the turn of the last century. The interior has rough wood paneling throughout and the living room ceiling exhibits the original wide hand-hewn roof decking.

Without being deprived of creature comforts, the cottage is especially suited for folks wanting to relax and take in the outer Cape's natural and overwhelming beauty. The cottage is set back from the dune top with direct water views, and the deck is private and nicely protected from offshore winds. The private beach is accessible via the stairs from the dune top, just in front of the cottage. You will be lulled to sleep by the waves... and awoken by the seagulls! Most guests ''live'' on the deck, enjoying the adirondack chairs, BBQ grill, hexagonal picnic table and market umbrella. The Eastham Lobster Pool is nearby and you will want to order your steamed lobsters ''to go'' so you don't miss a single sunset.

New for 2010: Well concealed wireless internet and a clothes washer/dryer!

    Many thanks Maureen! We, too have come under the magical "spell" of the Boathouse! We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly here and just love the whole experience- it was quiet and very restorative, and your touches to the house were perfect. We felt so cozy here- bravo! thank you for sharing such a special place!
    We hope to return as well!

    Such a romantic cozy space. Makes us want to visit the cape again. The sunsets are amazing. The nuances of the house are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for opening your home to us. We made amazing memories.

    A spectacular vacation. The Boathouse is precious and comfortable. The bay was a wonderful with low tides and warm water for walking and wading and high tides for floating. Eastham is a treasure and you are surrounded by lovely people, birds, a rabbit, and magnificent views from the deck. Sunsets are divine and the mornings are beautifully quiet here. We frequented Mac's on Route 6 for the freshest of fish.
    Just love it here!

    Never wanted to leave!

    We had a completely enjoyable stay at the Boathouse and beautiful beach just steps away. The interior of this historical cottage will take you to another place and time. We left wanting to know more about the history of this cottage that was saved from destruction by being floated to the mainland. Quaint and historic! We enjoyed paddle boarding and many trips with the grandkids in the raft. The best part of every day was gathering with family on the large deck for amazing sunsets and talking into the evening. We wanted to stay forever! show more show less

    The sound of a screen door on the Cape was never sweeter

    I was trying to find a place on the Cape that would bring me back to my teens in Orleans and Eastham as well as take my wife Julia back 25 years to that day that I first brought her to the Cape on her birthday, and we found it. If you truly want to feel and experience the Cape as it was meant to be, you cannot pass up The Boat House if it is free.There is a small sign posted by the door as you exit which reminds you how important the sound of a screen door stretching open and then slamming shut behind you is as a key to all great summer memories. The Boat House has now added more importance to that sweet sound. Thank you.

    Magical!

    We so loved this very special place in a very special spot. The house couldn't be more charming, and the deck--with locust trees providing shade--was glorious. Love the outdoor shower, and the spot on the bay is really great--walk out forever in low tide; step off the stairs to swim in high tide.

    What a wonderful spot! We had a view of the water; enjoyed the deck; short walk to the beach! My son's favorite spot was the hammock on the side of the house. We had a wonderful vacation and this house allowed us to have some wonderful memories.

    Thank you, Maureen!
    What a perfect place to spend our 34th wedding anniversary. the house is so charming, the deck so relaxing, and the view outstanding.

    To the next visitors-
    Don't miss exploring the beach at low tide, each sunset on the deck and listening to the crickets.

    Thanks again,

    We had a lovely vacation at the Boat House. We pick a new town and a new house each year, but this is out favorite place so far- lucky #7! Kim

    Also we loved the marvelous ocean view and sunsets. It was great to have a boardwalk again. We really enjoyed our stay. - Clara

    PS the stars at night were incredible. We even saw some of our Milky Way's galactic center.
    Best,
