Property type cottage

About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath Perfect for 2 people

Cottage #4 was completely renovated a few of years ago. The plan was never to rent it, but have the cottage for my personal use. Well a move to California changed all that. So…Cottage #4 has everything I love and wanted in a cottage, a big kitchen, with great appliances, 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), high speed internet, unlimited long distance. 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.

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.

Quality all the way.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was superb. Clean, comfortable and equipped with everything. We were impressed with the quality of the furnishings and appliances. Want sun? Go to the Adirondack chairs. Prefer shade? Put the hammock on that side of the cottage. Want privacy and a wonderful yard for your dog to sniff around in? You've got it. Want great beaches, wonderful food, great shopping or any other tourist-y things? The location is such that Cape Cod fun is just a few minutes away in any direction.

After a wonderful nights sleep in the comfy bed, we would start our day with a walk with our dog in Wiley Park. It is the best dog friendly park we have ever encountered. Beautiful foliage, fresh water kettle ponds and trails, trails and more trails.

Joan, the property manager, is one of the most delightful people on the planet.

The cottage was all that it was advertised to be and more. Thank you Mike Meluskey for creating such a wonderful vacation spot.

Incredible week on Cape Cod!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I had a great week on Cape Cod. Michael's cottage is the definition of cozy and comfortable. It's very well-appointed with the best rental kitchen I've ever seen. We had incredible meals, lazy days spent in the backyard, and quiet evenings on the screened in porch. Michael was helpful, responsive and left us a great bottle of wine to enjoy. We can't wait to return!

Relaxing Vacation in a fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our week long rental in Eastham. We had a fantastic time and if you are looking for a one bedroom rental, this is place to rent. The location is convenient to route 6, a short walk to the fort hill area and a few minute drive to the National Seashore beaches. There are plenty of restaurants in the area but once you step foot in the kitchen you will see there is no need to go out to eat. My husband and I cooked every night and the kitchen was very clean and fully stocked with everything you need. I was thrilled the first night to open the cabinet and find a salad spinner, great chef knives, and different sized cutting boards. The living room has plenty of space and is enhanced when you open up the French doors to the screened in porch, creating one large living area. We drank wine, played card games, and ate on the porch each night. We also had a rainy day during our week and felt at home sitting on the couch relaxing and watching movies. The bedroom is a great size and I was happy with the fact you need to bring your own sheets to use, as I would prefer that anyway. Finally, the bathroom is large and looks like it was recently refinished and includes a small washer dryer that was a nice addition when our beach towels needed to be washed.

My husband and I (and our dog) had such a wonderful time. We immediately felt at home in this cottage. The owner is extremely responsive and provided us

with a lot of useful information on the area. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and we will absolutely rent this cottage again.

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.
