Owner purchased this House in 2010
Why Owner chose North Eastham
This is a very sweet and special property. It is extremely private and the courtyard faces a completely undeveloped wooded lot with an abundance of birds. When you walk through the garden gate, you walk into a beautiful world which is only a two minute walk to the water. Professional landscaping makes the front and back yards an inviting place to relax.

A great week!
We just stayed here in late June 2017 and the place was great. House was nice and clean, a good size for everyone. Kitchen had everything we needed and bedrooms were comfortable. Gardens were amazing, we loved the outdoor shower and our niece loved the hammock. The walk to the beach was so easy and gave us a lot more flexibility especially with having an 11 month and 2 year old. One of us could easily go back with them for a quick break, to nap or to eat. We have stayed previously at a house where we had to drive everyone and it really holds you back. A big plus is the owner lets you use her beach chairs, which saves a ton of space in our already cramped car. I asked her if she had a beach cart to help bring all of the items to the beach, she didn't but immediately ordered one for the house as she knew it would help us and future renters out. I would rent this place again for sure.
Garden is like a botanical garden!
What a wonderful house. The garden was in full bloom. It felt like we were in a botanical garden with all the birds and flowers. I would definitely recommend this home!
We stayed here with 2 adults and 4 kids and as good as it looks in the photos and the description, it was even better in reality, if that's possible.
The condition and comfort of the house were wonderful, the size was perfect, and just about everything you could need is already there waiting for you.
The location is ideal, close enough to the beach to walk whenever you'd like, close enough to drive for ice cream, and far enough from the rest of civilization to feel relaxed.
We walked to the beach twice a day, the kids relaxed and played in the private yard, we all sat together every night, watched the birds, read and played games. No one wanted to go home.
Thank you for your unsolicited and glowing review! It is very satifying to know families and their friends have wonderful holidays in my home. Every year I'm able to complete more improve-ments from my iPhone wish list. Watch for raspberry bushes next year!
Peaceful and great location!
We had 6 adults and a 2 year old and the house was just perfect for us. The convenience to the private AND public beach was great and the private beach alone is perfect for little ones! The house is very charming and the grounds are exquisite. We found it very peaceful watching the birds and resident chipmunks play in the yard. I felt like it was our own secret garden. The hammock in the front was enjoyable after a long day at the beach. The house location to route 6 was great, just far enough away to feel the seclusion but close enough to have all the other amenities within a short drive or bike ride. The home was stocked with all of the things you would find in a year-round home so there wasn't anything that we needed to bring otherwise that isn't stated in the property amenity list. The outdoor shower is a must in the cape and we took advantage of it everyday. With a small child it was very nice to have it to wash off after the beach. The neighborhood was very friendly and felt very safe. We had amazing weather and will be back in the years to come! Thank you Karen for sharing your charming home with us, we are very happy to have found it!
Lovely garden retreat, So close to bay beach
Our favorite feature of the cottage was the garden. The flowering plants, house and canopy created a uniquely private outdoor room. It was great starting each day sipping coffee at the outdoor table watching the many birds and chipmunks that visited the feeder. Our teenagers spent hours reading in the hammock.
We've always loved the flats of the bay beaches at low tide. But we also enjoyed the supplied inflatable lounge chairs to float in the waters when the beach disappeared at high tide.
The cottage itself is cozy, clean and well supplied. Karen checked in with us on the second day, just to make sure everything was OK.
The cottage is located in the northern part of Eastham, very close to the peaceful town of Wellfleet. The bike trail is a little over a mile away and the ocean side beaches are just a few miles away, making for an easy bike ride. We would definitely love to stay here for our next visit to the Cape.
Great Relaxing Place, Perfect for a family
We really enjoyed staying at this house, very close walk to private bay beach. The grounds were wonderful and provided hours of entertainment for my little kids, chasing butterflies, inspecting bugs and plants. We had everything we needed from coffee filters to outdoor furniture and even a shed to lock our bikes in. Also very close to Rt 6 and the ocean beaches. I would recommend this house to anyone couples, families etc. It was very quiet and relaxing.
Thank you for writing about your lovely holiday. The house is located less than a mile from Rt 6.
Other Activities: Art Galleries, mini-golf, cape cod rail trail with roller blade rentals
