PERFECT SPOT FOR A RELAXING WEEK

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (two adults, two kids ages 4 and 6) spent a lovely week here last summer. We had previously stayed in a smaller cottage on Minister's Pond and loved the location but needed just a bit more room, and this was perfect. We appreciated the vaulted ceiling, decent-sized bedrooms, and especially the bathroom which has a full-size tub (much easier than a shower stall when getting the little ones ready for bed). The best part was the bed in the master bedroom - my husband and I slept so well we decided to buy a new bed when we got home! I liked that the cottage was tastefully decorated but not crammed full of knick-knacks that I usually have to stash away from the kids. The kitchen was small but functional, and the windows everywhere make the whole place feel much bigger than it is. It's just a very peaceful, beautiful, comfortable place to be. We were lucky and had great weather all but one day, but even if we had had to spend more time in the cottage, we would have been OK.

Minister's Pond itself is very nice - previously we had stayed in a cottage right where the beachfront access was, which was great with two small kids, but even this cottage is only a very, very short walk away (100-150 steps?). The kids enjoyed swimming in the shallow area, swimming out to and jumping off the raft, and taking rowboat rides with their dad. The game room and badminton net also came in very handy. There's a small playground, too, but the kids didn't seem interested in it (too many other things to do!).

In terms of location, we love Eastham - we often met up with friends staying in Harwich, and we liked having close access to beaches on both sides. So many great restaurants and take-out places - one of our favorites for a casual spot with the kids is the Friendly Fisherman. Arnold's is always great, too, and for mini-golf we always hit Cape Escape a couple of times.

To get back to this cottage in particular, I thought the description of the cottage online was very accurate and that we knew just what we were getting. The cottage was very clean and pleasant, and the owner Tom was very easy to communicate with via email leading up to our arrival (nothing went wrong during our stay so there was no need for contact during that time!). We would definitely like to stay here again in the future.

TRULY "RELAXING":

Truly "RELAXING":
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for aplace to relax and enjoy all that the Cape has to offer and "The Relax" has it all. The cottage is bright and airy with all the amenities you need and more. The ocean side beaches are 5 minutes away and the bay beaches, with fabulous sunsets, are only a ten minute ride. The pond is great for swimming, rowing and fishing and just enjoying the view. The bike paths are close by and a fairly easy ride. Cape Cod beach dining is plentiful as well as fine dining too. Anything you might need is only a short ride from the cottage. Tom and Renise have done a wonderful job of upgrading and maintaining this great vacation retreat. We will be keeping this "find"on our Cape Cod itinerary for years to come.

CHARMING AND PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
We had a delightful stay at cottage #8 at Nauset Haven. It was just as it looked in the pictures and spotlessly clean. The sun streamed in the main room in the morning and it was almost like being in a treehouse looking out through the trees at the pond below. We kayaked on the pond every day and really enjoyed our stay. The Relax is just that!

CANNOT WAIT FOR NEXT SUMMER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family with two kids (12 & 9) stayed in this cottage for two weeks at the start of summer. While we had a few cool rainy days, the majority of our stay was wonderful. The cottage is very nice. Clean and in good order. Many of these cottages still have the wood paneling, but this has been converted with drywall with vaulted ceilings and a multitude of windows. Sitting in the living area, you feel like you are in a tree house. Great views with wildlife. Kitchen met our needs. Wi-fi internet worked great. The only thing that would make this cottage perfect is a washer dryer.

The cottage worked well for our family. Tom, the owner, went out of his way to make sure that we were happy and comfortable. Including a late night phone call to get the heat turned on. Other guests and owners were friendly. The game room has tons of things to keep your family playing together including tetherball, fusball, badminton and shuffleboard. Some d

Our family spent a lot of time at Minister's Pond in the backyard. Just steps away. We rowed around the lake. Swam in the cool clear water. And fished. I don't know how many hours my son fished but it was fun. Some 18 inch bass out there and decent sized panfish. Don't worry we threw them all back in for you. The big bass seem to like the lily pads.

Go to Arnold's for the onion rings and ice cream. Cape Cod National Seashore is a treasure. Be sure to visit the Massachusetts Audubon Center in Wellfleet. The Seashore Ramble is an excellent adventure.

WE HOPE TO BE BACK!

  • 5 of 5
This is a cool, woodsy cottage. It feels well away from the Cape hussle and yet it's actually centrally located to provide ease of travel to biking, dinner, and other nearby towns. The oversized windows provide a wonderful view of the pond and the owners provide excellent customer service. I vacationed here with my family which includes children ages 6 and 8. There was plenty to do for them onsite and everyone agreed we hope to be able to return in years to come. The listing description couldn't be more accurate and the great attention to detail by owners made the trip a breeze! Enjoy!

OUR SECOND STAY AT CABIN 8!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Again! We stayed in Cabin 8 in 2010 and really enjoyed our stay, we have been coming to this part of Cape Cod since 1997 and Minister's Pond is one of the prettiest spots. Cabin 8 is nestled amongst the trees overlooking the pond and thanks to the new larger Windows...those views were even better this year, we spent 5 nights there in October 2012 and Tom and Renise were very accommodating to say the least! The Cabin is spotless and comfortable...cozy. It's nicely situated and an easy drive to the Cape Cod National Seashore Park and beach. We enjoyed some hiking along the beaches and shopping, antiquing and dining up and down the Cape. Looking forward to our next visit as we promise to come back!

Map

Nearest Airport
95 Miles
Logan International Airport, Boston (1hr 45min)
Nearest Beach
2 Miles
Coast Guard Beach (Ocean) or Kingsbury (bay)
Car: recommended

Great location right on a pond, 1/4 mile from National Seashore Visitors Center and the 30 mile long Cape Cod Bike Trail, 2.5 miles from the Coast Guard and Nauset Lighthouse ocean beaches, 2 miles from the protected bayside beaches that expand out to 1/4 mile at low tide. Also very convenient to reastaurants, ice cream, mini-golf and shopping in the quaint Orleans or Wellfleet and centers. If you still need something more, Provincetown, and Chatham are short and scenic 15-20 mile drives.

Other Activities: It's not Christmas any more, but here are a few of our favorite things:

* Cape Cod National Seashore Visitors Center 1/4 mile away....check out 'The Sands of Time', a 15 minute documentary about the geological history of the Cape, which will be very relavant after the severe beach reconfiguration that took place this winter.

* Walks on the beach from Coast Guard beach to Nauset inlet...even better at low tide.

* Bike rides up and down the Bike Trail. If you like mountain biking, there are a myriad of fantastic trails in nearby Wellfleet that are fast and smooth and bring you to secluded kettle pond swimming holes... can you find 'Spectacle Pond'!?!?

* Sunsets at the bayside beaches.. bring a cooler. And, if you're an early bird, sunrises and coffee on the top steps of the Nauset Light Beach.

* A moonlit row around the pond listening to the peace and quiet and occasional fish breaking the surface.

* Early (very early) sunrise walks on the beach when the sea is calm and blue fish are still blitzing... and the sunset ones too!

You can challenge your family to a friendly game of horseshoes. Or just explore...
