About the property

Housekeeping Cottage

Nauset Haven on Minister's Pond is a cottage community nestled among the pines, hugging the shoreline of a freshwater pond. Just 2.5 miles from both the ocean and bay beaches, our cottage is a blend of privacy and convenience. It offers waterviews and homey comfort in a beautiful Cape Cod setting. Participants in the CAPE COD SYMPOSIUM (1/2 mile away) and the CAPE COD INSTITUTE (2.4 miles away) have raved about this relaxing alternative to a motel room. Enjoy your meals on the enclosed porch overlooking Ministers Pond, a 21 acre freshwater kettle pond with it's own beach, dock and swimming platform. Take out one of the rowboats for a trip around the pond or some freshwater fishing. Nap under the pines in our hammock or barbecue on the patio. On those occasional cool cape nights cozy up to the wood-burning fireplace.

The Cape Cod bike trail, which you can access across the street, is a bike trail that goes from Dennis to Wellfleet. Rent a bike at L'il Capestrano Bike Shop which is 1 block away. Arnold's Family Restaurant is within walking distance for food, ice cream and mini-golf. Provincetown, a great place for shopping, dining and both people and whale watching is just 30 minutes away.

Pondfront Cottage. Private Beach with Rowboats, Swimming Platform and dock, A/C
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Perfect Place.

  • 5 of 5

After enjoying it for 17 seasons (time does fly), Cottage 6 seems like a second home. Over the years, we've learned that sometimes it's better to slow down and take more time to do less. The cottage allows and rewards that. Now we're looking forward to another fine stay and to all of the changes that have been made and that look so inviting in the photos.

Peaceful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My 2 daughters and I stayed here last summer for a week and truly loved our stay. We used the row boats and my girls loved sunning on the floating dock. The view of the pond from the sun porch is glorious, especially at dusk. Staying in Eastham is Cape Cod at its best: the National Seashore (with the famous Nauset Lighthouse), Cape Cod Bay and fresh water ponds galore. We can't wait to retun next summer.

Peaceful Cape Cod retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the opportunity to stay in this cozy cape cottage while attending the Wellfleet Oyster Festival. It is one of 10 cottages in a wooded setting. The location and view are just perfect with a prime spot perched up overlooking a peaceful pond with a dock. Very clean and well equipped with everything you will need for a getaway. Many restaurants nearby and beautiful beaches. Would love to stay here again.

Perfect Cape Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is everything you need for a vacation on the Cape. This cottage worked well for my family of four (two young children). Our toddler loved being able to look out the windows at the pond when he wasn't down there playing, swimming and fishing. It is a cozy cottage, but it had more space than we anticipated. We were even able to fit a pack and play in the bedroom for our infant. Everything inside and outside is fully functional and in good shape.

The community is well-maintained and has a lot to offer to keep you busy. Horse shoes, basketball, and a kids play area help work off some of the calories from the trips to Emack and Bolio. We even found some wild blackberry bushes to provide us with delicious fruit.

The cottage is conveniently located off of Route 6 with easy access to Coast Guard, Nauset Light and Marconi beaches and the bay side beaches. Great food is just around the corner at Arnold's, Red Barn, Box Lunch and Hole in One. The only drawback is that it can be hard to make a left turn out of Nauset Haven turning peak traffic times and limited sight lines on Route 6.

We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return again in the future.
