This was our second stay at Thirst Inn. As you can see by my previous review in 2012, we found this to be the PERFECT home for a fantastic Cape Cod family vacation. Upon our return this year, we found some nice surprises which made an already perfect property, even more special! My favorite addition is the outdoor shower! What better way to start a day than showering under a beautiful Cape Cod sky or end the day by showering under the glorious starlit night sky! Ahhhhhh, take me back! I hope that some photos are added to the listing to show this very tastefully constructed shower located conveniently off the guest house near the pool. If you prefer to shower indoors, you can choose from the nicely decorated bathroom in the guest house or the beautifully renovated bathroom in the main house
If rains falls during your vacation, no worries! The owners have also renovated their basement! Although the aforementioned ping pong table is no longer there, a tv, video game console, carpeted floor, large open space and huge bean bags chairs all create a great hang out for the younger set! Of course this space is also tastefully decorated with lovely art! Upstairs, a Smart tv has been installed for your viewing pleasure and wireless internet connects to a large screen Mac desktop as well as all of your own devices. If your idea of a vacation is getting away from the screens you will find many choices of comfy spaces to snuggle up w/a good book! The central a/c, gas fireplace and whole house dehumidifier provide comfort whatever the weather!
Since I gave 5 stars on my last review...with all these wonderful improvements, I now require 6 to describe this paradise in Eastham!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your exceptional review which states the obvious...We invest our "time, talent and treasure" and it shows. This past years work took a lot of weekends and school vacation weeks to accomplish, but after a hard day of work, a walk around the Salt Pond in November is worth it all....

Best Cape Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this property from the beautiful landscaping, pool, patio, main house and guest house. Everything inside and outside is perfectly maintained and there is tremendous attention to detail and decorating the home. We've been coming to the Outer Cape for 15 years and this was the property we ever rented. It was perfect for our family and we just booked it again for next summer! Thanks much Paul!

Owner's Response: Thank you! For those of you who know Katie and I we pay a lot of attention to detail. My wife gets all the credit for decorating and I get the credit for th construction. In the off season, we spend a lot of weekends and school vacation weeks remodeling and maintaining the property. Last year, I remodeled the main house bathroom because time had caught up to it and we also finished off the basement and added the outdoor shower. We consider it our labor of Love, we love the Cape so much we don't mind working on our home in the off-season.

Everything you need for all ages!

  • 5 of 5
I am almost hesitant to write this review because I don't want to give this place away, but I think it's only fair to give credit were credit is due. My family and I stayed her for a week in June. Ages ranged from 3 - 60 years old. Everyone had a great time! The property is very clean as well as the pool. The pool is heated and some days the pool felt warmer than the air, as we did go before the official start of summer. I would recommend to anyone to bring bike. The house is close to the bike path that goes directly to coast guard beach on the national sea shore. It is also close to beaches (driving) on the bay side which are great for kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house and wish we could have stayed for longer than a week!

A Great Cape Escape

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been coming to the Cape for over 25 years and we have rented many houses in Eastham/ Wellfleet area, which we love. This home suited our needs better than any other home we have been in. You see evidence of the tremendous care and thoughtfulness put into the lovely grounds, phenomenal pool, interior decor of the house and adorable cottage. Central air was a blessing during scorching heat...The artwork alone also stands out- reflecting many of our favorite spots locally. With extended family members sharing a vacation together, having a separate cottage was perfect! The Thurston Inn was cozy, comfy, private, expansive and closely proximated to the best beaches and all of our favorite haunts.... Bike ride to the beach, have breakfast by the pool, enjoy the gift of the Cape at it's best.
Now, if we could only figure out how to manage a month stay vs a week...

Peaceful setting, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5
The "Thirst Inn" is a wonderful setting for the whole family to enjoy. It has perfect spaces for everyone's needs. The playroom in the basement includes ping pong table, games and twins beds for the kids. The bright, airy sun room is the perfect place to enjoy a good book. There are two long tables in the kitchen area on which everyone can enjoy a family board game or meal. The bedrooms are clean and cozy. (bring your own linens). The office has a large screen Mac for keeping up w/emails, "googling" the best restaurants or posting the fun on FB or YouTube! :) The kitchen is well equipped and designated for several cooks with a nice built in grill just outside the door for the grill master! There are also two large tables outside for dining alfresco! Then there's the fun "Outermost House" just through the side door. What a great place for the in-laws or teenagers to have their own space. Two clean bedrooms, a mini-fridge, lovely bathroom and living room in which to "chill" and catch a game or movie on the flat-screen t.v. The yard is large and accommodated our games of bocce and ladder ball. (byo lawn games). It is beautifully landscaped and lovingly maintained. A double swing chair provides a peaceful spot to relax and reflect on the memory garden. Everyone eventually meets up at the pool for a dip or some sunbathing. Lined with plenty of lounge chairs and crystal clear, the pool is an oasis at which to start or end your day. The location of the property is nice, just off Rte 6, yet tucked away on a private, quiet road! The elementary school down the road provide a basketball court and jungle gym. And what we most enjoyed was the short bike ride/jog/ walk just over a mile to the gorgeous Coast Guard/ National Sea Shore Beach. Be sure to set the alarm early one day to head down and see the sunrise! Also, plan ahead and go to the Visitor's Center to get a permit for a fire on the beach at night (permits are issued 3 days in advance) You can also see the sunset over the water at Skatet beach just a few miles away in Orleans. This property is top notch and highly recommended. Just leave time at the end of your stay to clean, leaving it in the condition that you found it. It's worth it!

amazing vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we had rented a house on the cape and we were nervous. We should not have bee!. This is a beautiful, well maintained home with an amazing swimming pool. The location is great....near Coast Guard beach, bike paths and ponds. The owners went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable and happy.

We had a fantastic week and would be very happy to return to this house year after year.
