Guestbook comments from the owner
We all came last year and had a blast, Again, we love the roosters! Did you know, you have 28?! We'll be back! (one of the younger ones)
What a glorious week! Sun & sea & starry nites. Able to eat dinner on the deck every nite with great desserts and a birthday party around the kitchen table. We love this house - this yard and all the extras! Kitchen update looks great!! Love the huge white hydrangeas. We'll be back!!

My first visit to Cape Cod was as a middle school student from Connecticut. It was love at first sight - I said to myself, someday, I'm going to live here. And, in 1979, with my husband and five children, ranging in age from 3-13, I did.
The family run motel business that caused the move, however, proved way too overwhelming for the busy life required to raise a family. After 5 years of that, the business sold and the house at 90 Ireland Way was built and became home.
Cape Cod Community College is a wonderful resource for education on the Cape. It provided me the opportunity to get an education, be a stay at home mom and assist (bookkeeping) the entrepreneur husband who was then building houses for a living. (90 Ireland Way is the result of that endeavor).
Renting the house in the summer, after the children were grown and on their own, was the plan. However, after graduation from an off-Cape college, it was evident that my marriage couldn't survive the change.
Renting the house then became essential for repairs and maintenance.
For the past 9 years, many different families have enjoyed a summer vacation on Cape Cod in this wonderful family home. The house has become even more important to the children - all adults now and some with their own children - than before. Indeed, my oldest granddaughter (named for me!), is 17 this year!!
Of all the holidays we've enjoyed over the years, this past Christmas was the best. My 10 year old granddaughter, Jess, said to me during the Wii tournament, 'Gammie, it's not about the Wii - it's the people'. Yes, wisdom from a child. It was Jess who insisted that another Wii be purchased so the summer guests could enjoy playing the different games.
We all hope you create special family memories at a home that has done the same for us.
Families are so precious. And creating memorable experiences is what bonds us together even more. We sincerely hope you enjoy the best vacation ever!
Eastham is delightful: 3 miles wide from ocean to bay with many beautiful ponds as well. It is a family focused resort town boasting the National Seashore Visitor's Center. Beach days at bay or ocean beaches or ponds will put you into a new relaxed mode. Bike on the rail trail, relax on the expansive new deck and just 'be' on your vacation. Great new seafood store (Mac's) will provide the freshest locally caught fish or eat out at one of the many fine restaurants. Grilling on the deck is definitely an easy option.
90 Ireland Way was built as our family home in 1984. Five children enjoyed growing up here and many of their local friends considered the house their 'home' as well. Since they are now grown and living alone or with husbands and children, the house has been enjoyed by summer vacationers for the past 15 years. During the off-season, we gather for holidays and memorable occasions. Add 90 Ireland Way to your vacation memories - it's a house meant to be enjoyed for just this purpose.
Eastham is equi-distance from Provincetown and Hyannis.
It's an easy drive to enjoy whale watching (recommend Provincetown for this) where several boats are available.
Sport fishing is fabulous at Rock Harbor in Orleans, 5 minutes from the house. You can charter a half or full day in advance.
The house provides ultimate privacy in an upscale residential neighborhood. Early mornings are perfectly quiet to enjoy the deck with that first cup of coffee.
Convenient to back roads, it's possible to drive to Orleans or Wellfleet without using Route 6, thus avoiding traffic. A Super Stop and Shop is 5 minutes away, in Orleans. Also in that complex is a TJ Maxx, a favorite for discount shoppers. The Christmas Tree shops are just down the street from TJ's and offer a variety of super priced items ranging in home goods, toys and snack foods.
Chatham is a lovely 'village' of shops that make walking down Main Street a pleasure. You're sure to find just the right item to retain your Cape Cod memories or even a gift for the person watering plants at your house. There are several restaurants to enjoy here, as well.
Menues are in a notebook at the house. You'll be able to choose which restaurant is the right one to celebrate a special evening or for the whole family to dine together.
