Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath Perfect for 2 people

Cottage #4 was completely renovated for my personal use and never intended as a rental. Well a move to the West Coast changed all that. So…Cottage #4 has everything I love and wanted in a cottage, a big kitchen designed for a cook.. with great appliances, great pots and pans, good knives, big gas stove, Bosch dishwasher, redwood counters, and an old soapstone sink. The bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed, large window and skylight. The bathroom is beautiful, but the outdoor shower is all you will use. There is a big screen porch overlooking a private yard and wooded wetlands. There is cable TV (flat screen), and high speed internet. Its a spacious cottage perfect for two people but with a pull out couch for a child or overnight guest. Just 2 miles to the national seashore beaches and a a short walk to beautiful Fort Hill and views of Nauset Marsh. My past guests have all said how much they feel at home in the cottage...and never want to leave.

If you like cozy, this place is great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here and would definitely come back. It is a cozy classy place that was obviously renovated with great care. The bedroom and bathroom are just so comfortable and the kitchen is the best part - designed for a cook and roomy enough that we whipped up Thanksgiving dinner here. The living room is small though and has a tiny TV but if it's nice weather you'd likely spend your time on the screen porch and in the yard anyway. We took walks up the road to see the gorgeous Fort Hill view every day. Best part? They allow dogs. Not too many places this nice do.

Easy, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful! We stayed this last week and had a wonderful time. The cottage was private yet close to all of the major beaches and a short drive from Wellfleet restaurants. Great amenities with stocked pantry of household necessities and laundry on site. We'll be back!

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Cabin #4 is very sweet. It was clean upon arrival and well equipt throughout. We had a rainy afternoon enjoying the extremely comfortable couch, a meal in (very easy to make with everything provided), and exploring cable with actual channels and movies. It's was very nice and relaxing. The skylight in the bedroom was wonderful. The area is secluded by woods. Although you can hear the highway, it's not loud or obtrusive at all. It was very close to fort hill and the walking trails looked amazing!!! We really enjoyed the location and the ease of getting around and exploring the cape. Michael's guest book was extremely helpful and gave a lot of insider tips. We ended up going off his recommendations rather than our light research. Michael was very communicative and easy to work with! It was a wonderful stay! Thank you Michael!

Centrally located and quintessential Cape Cod charm

  • 5 of 5

I've been vacationing on the Cape for over 20 years, and this cottage was by far one of the best places I've stayed! I was initially drawn to this Eastham cottage for its central location (we like going to Provincetown for beach days and dinners) and also for being dog-friendly! Shmeagle the Boston Terrier loved the screened in porch, laying by the Adirondack chairs, and being able to chase the frisbee every night at First Encounter Beach. I have to admit I was a bit nervous renting a cottage without being sure of the size, knowing that many beach cottages on the Cape are pretty tiny, but I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious this felt, not to mention the ample storage space. And its location is pretty remote and set back from the other properties and the road leading to Fort Hill (a truly spectacular area, but filled with ticks - beware!). Very clean, comfortable, and truly relaxing environment. Michael was also very responsive and accommodating to all of my many questions throughout the rental process. We would definitely stay again!

nice cape great location

  • 5 of 5

This rental was great. The attention to detail to the cape and especially the kitchen was awesome. Owner attentive, on-site manager Joan was awesome and helpful! Great location to kayaking and hiking. Not far from bike trails as well. We had a great time.

1st Encounter-Bay /Coast Guard Nauset Light -Ocean
Car: necessary

The Cottage is located on an old apple orchard at the base of Fort Hill, part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Just a one minute walk you come to an old Whaling Captains home and a few minutes later to the top of Fort Hill, which has amazing views of Nauset Marsh. There are walking trails all around. Its a 1/2 mile to the Cape Bike trail and just 2 miles to the National Seashore beaches and the town Bay Beach. The Outer Cape is beautiful as the national Seashore has reduced the amount of development you find on the rest of the Cape.
