Eastham Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6, 1 bathroom

Completely remodeled, Cape-style, two bedroom, waterfront, vacation cottage in Eastham, Massachusetts, available for weekly rentals during peak summer season. Enjoy our private freshwater beach including the use of rowboats, dock, and swimming platform! Relax and enjoy the beautiful views of the 21-acre Minister Pond from the large, well-appointed living room.

Our cottage (named the 'Cast Off,' which means 'to let go') is located in a private location (Cottage #7) in the Nauset Haven community and positioned in close proximity to the Cape Cod National Seashore with all its great beaches. Also close are the many beaches of Cape Cod Bay, as well as restaurants and shopping in Eastham, Orleans, Chatham, Wellfleet, and other great Cape Cod towns!

Our cottage has all the conveniences of home (and then some) in a lovely Cape setting. Rinse off or clean up in our new outside shower while overlooking the pond.

Great cottage on an beautiful pond in center of Cape Cod.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a great size. The boys loved the pond, the floating dock and the row boats. The playground and courts were also a big hit. The proximity of the two bike trails was awesome and be able to bike ride to the beach was an added plus.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 wonderful days in the cottage and we loved it. The view on the lake is wonderful, the cottage was very clean and comfortable. The situation is perfect, near the bike trails and near the beaches. It is a very quiet place and the outside shower is fantastic. Wifi is working very well and the kitchen/living room is spacious. It was a very nice place to be.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I'm going to keep my review very short and simple........The Cast Away Cottage on Minister Pond is PERFECT! It holds my family of 5 perfectly (kids 12,10,6) with a bunk bed for 3 in 1st bedroom and a 2nd bed room w/ a queen size bed. The kitchen/living area is spacious and has all the modern conveniences of home. The outside shower is a fantastic bonus, I think the only cottage w/ one in that location. The cottage is ALWAYS very clean, neat, organized and clutter free which I totally appreciate. It is decorated very tastefully unlike some other places I have visited...... The pond is great for fishing, boating, and exploring and provides hours of entertainment for the kids.

It is centrally located to almost anywhere you need to go from the bay, ocean, shopping, resturants......you name it!

Thanks Ed and Sara, you do a terrific job with your home away from home and appreciate that you open it to us every year!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can make this short and sweet- I have been coming to Cape Cod for 40+ years and this is my absolute favorite place to stay. I feel like we can have a perfectly relaxing vacation while never leaving Nauset Haven. The ocean, bay, great restaurants and never disappointing trails are all just a bonus... The immaculately clean cottage, the comfortable accomodations, the fully stocked kitchen, and the options for WiFi, air conditioning, and out door showering make this cottage choice a no-brainer to all people who can respect the beauty of the Cape... LOVE IT!

Charming Honeymoon Spot For Outdoor Lovers!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed a week at the Cast Off Cottage for our honeymoon. We went in September and the weather was seasonably warm and gorgeous every day! We enjoyed the beautiful views from each room, how clean the place was, and the great location to all things we like to do. We kayaked all around Minister’s Pond and rode our bikes to the Nauset bike path and Cape Cod Rail Trail right from our doorstep! Another nice place for kayaking and biking was Nickerson State Park with its very sandy and lovely fresh water lakes.

The cottage interior with its vaulted ceiling is very spacious for two people, the kitchen has everything you could need, and the decor in every room is charming. The queen bed was soooo comfortable!! I can’t remember when I’ve had such a deep, mind-numbing sleep! It was nice having the additional room with extra closet space and beds for storage.

Our only complaint was the number of spiders we found inside the cottage, my husband walked through a web at least once a day (fortunately they got him & missed me)!! But we understand that is the nature of the woods and a small price to pay for being so close to nature. The long handled broom in the closet took care of them.

As stated by other reviewers, the owners are very organized, easy to contact, and the whole rental process was easily done by mail. It was a very memorable week and we look forward to staying there again in the future!

Beautiful cottage in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what our family was looking for. Eastham is so close to so many things-there's something for everyone! We did the biketrail, went hiking, spent the day at a few different beaches, saw a beautiful sunset at Rock harbor beach, took a daytrip to P-town and the Pilgrim Monument, visited and did a shellfishing demonstrations at the National Seashore where the kids got there Jr. Rangers badges! But one of the best things about this cottage was the pond. There the kids could just be kids! They loved swimming out to and jumping off the dock, taking out the rowboats, fishing, and making new friends-they even spotted the large turtle! The cottage is so nice and bright and the perfect size for a small family. It had every amenity and was nicely updated, but nothing is over the top so it still had that nice "cottage" feel. The owners were so friendly and it was a very smooth last minute rental!

Map

Nearest Beach
1.8 Miles

Our Cottage is conveniently located on the best part of Cape Cod! Our cottage is located right next to the entrance of the National Seashore and all the beauty it has to offer -- huge sandy beaches, fantastic nature trails, Nauset Lighthouse, and more!

Beaches and activities on Cape Cod Bay are also close. Bike paths are right next door. Great restaurants and shopping just down the road.

A short 20 minute drive north and you can visit Provincetown where you can enjoy whale watching. A 15 minute drive south and you can be in downtown Chatham.

But why leave when you have your own beach right outside your door!
