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.

                                                        Lovely cottage, long walk

                                                        Laura K.

                                                        Cast off cottage is a large, charming, well equipped, very clean, place with a beautiful view of the pond from almost every window and wonderfully decorated. The difficult part for us, we are over 70 , is the 40 yard or so distance , on an incline from the car to the house. If that was noted somewhere we missed it. Respectfully mention that the sofa and chair need some improvement for better comfort. Would like to have used the dock, but again, the access, was to step on one, half submerged cinder block to get to it. Had a lovely time with our daughters present and poor weather despite our negatives.

                                                        Very favorable

                                                        Steven V.

                                                        We had a wonderful time. It was almost everything we had hoped for.

                                                        Our new favorite place to stay on the Cape

                                                        Joan M.

                                                        My husband and I honeymooned on the Cape and have been going back every year for our anniversary - 19 years now. This cottage was by far the best place we've stayed. It is very clean and decorated perfectly. It felt so warm and comfortable and we were able to relax and enjoy the calming view of the lake. I love to cook and was very happy to find everything I needed in the kitchen. My husband loved to get up early and go fishing off the dock, catching bass and pickerel. It rained all weekend so we weren't able to take advantage of all of the outdoor amenities but are looking forward to enjoying them on our next stay which will hopefully be sooner than next year!

                                                        Best cottage location on the cape

                                                        Thomas J.Cartersville, GA USA

                                                        If you like to see beautiful beaches you want to stay in Eastham. Close to the national seashore. Nausset light beach is easily one of the top 5 beaches I have ever seen, and I have been to Hawaii, Aruba, Cancun, and the Bahamas.

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

                                                        Joyce B.

                                                        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.


                                                        Marie Amelie C.

                                                        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.


                                                        Eastham, MA, USA

                                                        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!
