Relax & get away from it all, at your beach home away from home. One easy mile to Campground Beach. 2 miles to Nauset Light and Coast Guard beaches, and the best of both privacy and proximity to so much that this heavenly part of the Cape has to offer. Here, you'll have the easiest access to both the Bayside and Oceanside beaches. At a moment's notice you can drive out to both and decide where to plant your blanket for the day.
Enjoy use of the full, updated kitchen and appliances when you choose, whether for quick meals or snacks or full gourmet dinners at home. Kitchen has access out to our wonderful sunny deck, with dining table and seating for 6, overlooking a private, fenced 1/2 acre yard. Extend your summer relaxation swinging in the warm breeze in our 2-person hammock, gathering around the firepit for lazy summer evenings, or maybe grabbing the fam and friends and heading out to one of the world's last remaining drive-in movies in Wellfleet. Or, enjoy our big, roomy enclosed and private outdoor shower, to rinse off the remains of the beach while looking up into that clear blue sky.
Visit Sam's Deli or Eastham Superette for the best steaks or chicken for the grill (yes, we are foodies and yes, it is THAT quality), or Mac's Seafood, home to the freshest most wonderful seafood and lobsters anywhere. And all within a few minutes drive, or on your way home from the beach. Plus, in a half mile you can access the infamous Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, strolling or running.
Inside the house you'll find newer and comfy mattresses. Bright and airy living areas throughout. Sparkling clean, subject to our (the owners') fussy standards. Walk or bike to the Hole in One for coffee, bagels and pastries to go, or to the Fairway for excellent breakfasts and out of this world corned beef hash. All, while enjoying a quiet family neighborhood, where you can walk and bike in the street with not a car in sight. Lots of windows and a vaulted, beamed ceiling helps let the light of the Cape shine through, making this a perfect getaway.
Three bedrooms include a bright, private second floor loft-style master suite, with a deluxe king sized bed and private tiled combination tub/shower bath, the only rooms on this floor. The main floor features two added bedrooms: one cheery queen BR and one bright twin bedroom with two twin beds. Plus, a second, newly updated and full sized tiled bathtub/shower bathroom.
When the kids need a separate place to hang on a rare rainy day, you've got a vast VCR collection of kids movies in the finished basement, as well as a full-sized washer and dryer for your use.
You can also make use of our full sized Weber kettle charcoal grill and beach chairs and sand toys as available. While we love them, we're afraid that we cannot accommodate any pets, please.

About Donna or Steve Yonchak
We have owned the Barking Urchin since 2003, and use the house ourselves whenever we can, in the Fall and Spring. We love how pretty and unspoiled Eastham still is, how quiet our street and neighborhood are, and our easy walks to Campground or Thumpertown beaches (and the Hole in One) in the mornings! We keep our home to the highest standards that we would expect for a Cape family vacation home, and what we would expect for ourselves.
Donna or Steve Yonchak purchased this House in 2003

After three years of house hunting at the Cape, we were lucky to find the right one! Even with the easy proximity to Route 6, the property is ultimately quiet and peaceful, the best of access and privacy.

Beautiful setting, peaceful, comfortable, cosy, very well equipped
Our week in Barking Urchin was fantastic. The house is in a wonderful, beautiful setting, near (5 mins in bike) great bayside beaches, with the ocean beaches only 10 minutes drive. The house has everything you could need, and has a great outdoor space for cooking, eating and relaxing.

Perfect house for my family of 5!!
The listing was very accurate, pictures capture all that the house has to offer. upon arrival we found the house clean and ready for us to move right in! Location is perfect, we love to bike to the beach every day and it was a relatively easy ride to nauset light and coast guard beach. The house had everything we needed including an excellent outdoor shower! Dana is very friendly and easy to work with, a total pleasure to deal with. Thanks!!
Thank you for this glowing review! We try to step into our guests' shoes, to help support a vacation experience that is relaxing, memorable, comfortable and fun!
This is our 6th year coming to the cape. We love North Eastham and this house was a perfect fit for our family of 4! Plenty of space and a great deck for outdoor meals. We loved the out door shower! It was the hottest week of the season and we were very appreciative of the A/C. We biked to Brewster on the rail trail and biked to the bay and ocean side of the beach multiple times. Sam's deli is super close for great breakfast sandwiches as well as other local restaurants. We really loved the house and location! It was a wonderful experience.
Wonderful vacation home
My family and I loved our second summer at the Barking Urchin where we biked to the ocean or the bay each day. The house is in a great location with easy access to everything in Eastham and surrounds such as the rail trail and local eateries. It was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Dana and Steve could not have been more kind and helpful.
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful review, we love it when others love this special part of the Cape, too. Hope we'll see you next summer!
Eastham is one of the loveliest areas on 'Lower' (or outer) Cape Cod, only 3.5 miles wide where we are, so you're never far from either Cape Cod Bay or the National Seashore, stretching for miles and miles on the Oceanside. Beach activities abound, but you can also: Bike the CCRT (Cape Cod Rail Trail)...go hiking...enjoy antiquing...tour a lighthouse or a windmill...gallery-hop...see the Cape Cod Baseball League...go whale watching...shop in Chatham or Provincetown...or just relax and get away from it all. Other Activities: Wellfleet, Orleans, P-Town, Chatham, Brewster all just minutes away
