Classic Cape with bright, modern, free-flowing interior and central air conditioning in a tiny neighborhood on a private road in the woods (but only 2 miles to local stores). Private access to secluded salt-water beach on shallow bay, great for kayaking and beach-combing. Two master suites with full baths.
It’s a 2-minute walk to your secluded salt-water beach on Little Pleasant Bay, sheltered from the Atlantic by the barrier of Nauset Beach (famous for its sand and surf). The view from the beach is spectacular and unspoiled: just a peaceful vista of ocean, sky, and uninhabited islands; the closest visible houses are several miles away.
Perfect for an extended family (or two families), the house has a master suite on the upper level, and another suite on the main floor. Each suite has a full private bath.
Layout of main floor: The main floor features the living room, sun room, dining room, kitchen, twin-bed suite, half-bath, and laundry room. The bright, airy living room opens through large, double sliding doors to the deck, and has a vaulted ceiling and balcony leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The sun room, with vaulted ceiling and TV, opens off the living room; together they seat 10 comfortably.
The dining room, with over-sized table seating 10, is open to the kitchen, forming a great gathering place for kids (and adults) to work on projects together. The angled entrance to the sun room provides easy access from both the dining room and living room – so you can keep an eye on the kids watching TV in the sun room.
Bedrooms: The upper floor features the master suite with a king bed, private full bath, and walk-in closet.
The suite on the main floor has twin beds, TV, and a private full bath. If you prefer a king bed, there’s a twin-bed-connector that creates a king-sized bed (with fleece strip covering the joint, and a king-size mattress pad over the top).
The two other upper-floor bedrooms share a separate full bath with whirlpool tub. One of these bedrooms has a queen bed; the other has two twin-size bunks and a double bed – great for kids (and perhaps a nanny).
The whole house is air-conditioned. For cooler days when you prefer fresh air instead, there are ceiling fans in the living room, sun room, and master bedroom, as well as portable fans in the other bedrooms.
In colder weather, our gas-log fireplace provides instant-on coziness for the living room. And, of course, the whole house has central heating.
More details: The two-car garage contains beach chairs, board games, Lego and other toys, which you’re welcome to use.
Outside, there’s a covered farmers’ porch on the north side, connected to a wrap-around deck and gas grill on the east side. The south-side deck has a large umbrella-shaded picnic table. A roomy outdoor shower (with full privacy) allows for cleaning off the sand after a day at the beach.
Our “own” beach on Little Pleasant Bay is great for kayaking and beach-combing, but the beach can be narrow at high tide, and may have sea grass washed up on it – so go to nearby Nauset Beach (3 miles from the house) for Atlantic surf and miles of unspoiled sand. Other local beaches are Skaket Beach (5 miles), great for little kids; and Pilgrim Lake (4 miles), a fresh-water pond, also great for little kids.
After I retired from a career in computer consulting, I trained as a shamanic energy healer -- a very different focus! Check out my web site: perhaps you'd like to experience a healing session as part of your vacation here?
Don Cameron purchased this house in 1996
My late wife's grandparents bought sheep pasture here in 1892. They loved the proximity of Little Pleasant Bay. The view from the beach - only 2 minutes from the house - where you can see no houses closer than several miles away, is still unspoiled over a century later, thanks to the generous conservation actions of our neighbors.
And we're less than a 10-minute drive from the popular public Nauset Beach on the Atlantic.
Our second visit to this wonderful Cape house, and it was even better the second time around. Great memories were made here in this house for the week that we stayed for. We were lucky to have great weather to spend time on Nauset Beach! Cannot express how well this house captures the essence of a “Cape house”.
Thank you for sharing your home with us once again – – truly a wonderful home!
PS: the ping-pong table is the best! Always a joy – – it’s a keeper!
-What a wonderful Christmas week with my family. We were so comfortable and together. I don't think there would have been another house that would have been as great as this one. Thank you very much!
-We have spent many a Christmas in Eastham at my grandparents’ house. It was our homestead, the base. We have missed it since it sold, and it never felt quite the same. Your home has been the closest feeling to these Christmases we've had in years. Thank you for sharing and trusting us with this beautiful place.
-The house is amazing, it's much bigger than my house. I would move in this house in a heartbeat. It was nice having my family together and not being squished. Thank you very much
What a treat! We so enjoyed our visit to Cape Cod and your fabulous home.
Everything was neat and clean and we found everything we needed because you
were so well equipped. We found that the rain was not a deterrent to having
fun, but it was lovely to spend time outdoors and explore. Thanks for
everything, you are a pro at this!
In the vernacular of my upbringing, you have here “a bird’s nest on the
ground.” A wonderful place with everything we needed for a great wedding
celebration for my son – a place of respite, a place to share time with
friends, a place to get close to nature. Thanks! You are a great host!
Even though we stayed for two days only, we immensely enjoyed it! I second
the comments of other guests about the house and surroundings. The book
collection is another thing worth of mentioning. We were especially
impressed by 1914 edition of Rudyard Kipling. We will definitely come back!
We had an absolutely amazing week at this wonderful home. 3 generations
under one roof + perfect weather + lovely home = amazing vacation! The Cape
is so special to all of us and this vacation did not disappoint! Thanks for
providing such a well-appointed and beautiful home!
We loved this home. It was so very comfortable and immaculate. Th owner met us with fresh muffins, gave us a tour and was so attentive to our every need. The location and all of the amenities were just perfect for our entire family. I would recommend this wonderful home to all who are searching for a perfect Cape Cod rental property.
