Eastham Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 BRs: 1 queen, 1 twin + 2 bunk beds, sleeps up to 5; 1 bath

At the start of the Cape Cod National Seashore, in the woods, Old Cape Cod calm and quiet. Minister Pond [around 23 acres!] is right there. The best place to sit and relax and get to know your own thoughts again. Listen to the owls and tree frogs at night, the dozens of birds all day.

Enjoy the bamboo and tile floors and new bathroom. Lovely, rustic, old Cape Cod cottage on Minister Pond. Relax in this quiet, private setting with frogs, lily pads, and the serenity of the Lower Cape. In the woods with trees and tranquility. Deck with grill.

About Jon or Cindy LeConey

We are the LeConey family - Cindy, Jon and Tess, and we enjoy sharing our beautiful piece of Cape Cod with the people who come to stay in our cottages. Nothing pleases us more than sitting on our porch on a warm summer evening listening to the quiet talk and laughter from the cottages, and knowing we're able to share this place with them. It's very satisfying to watch others fall in love with this beautiful place, and come back year after year.

Jon or Cindy LeConey purchased this cottage in 2002

Cute, cozy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a nice, comfortable place to stay. The location was great where it was next to National Seashore visitors center and bike trails. During the cool nights, the heaters kept us nice and warm. The caretaker checked up on us which was a nice touch.

A nature lover's oasis!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we wanted for a simple, summer vacation. A very clean, comfortable cottage and deck. The pond offered a quiet oasis where we kayaked, swam, and watched the birds and insects, and a bonus fire pit. We were very close to the bike trail and to the National Seashore. Cindy and Jon checked in with us at the beginning of the week to see if we needed anything. What more can you ask for? We were there for two weeks and definitely could have stayed longer.

peaceful oasis!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy to have found Cindy. This beautiful, peaceful property is nestled in the woods overlooking a beautiful pond. It is tranquil. My autistic son took to the surrounding easily. The owners are more than accomodating and very helpful. I truly felt like we were in our own place, not renters. I can't wait to come back and make some more memories.

Eastham is at the start of the Cape Cod National Seashore, that runs 30 miles, all the way to the tip of Cape Cod in Provincetown. The U.S. National Park Service has a beautiful visitor's center (Salt Pond Visitor's Center) just a few blocks away, with walking and bike trails that go in the woods and to the beach. Truly the best of the natural beauty of Cape Cod, but with everything you need within a few miles, including the best visual and theater arts and great shopping and kids and adults restaurants. Ocean and Bay beaches are around 1 1/2 miles east and west of our pond. You couldn't ask for anything more from your time on Cape Cod.

Other Activities: Kayaks available for rent can be delivered right to the pond for you!
