About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths + outdoor shower (Sleeps 6-9)

A unique place, our 'Nauset Teepee' promises you a memorable family holiday in a clean, quiet setting that is distinctively Cape Cod.

The floorplan offers a first floor bedroom with a king size bed and full bath, large common room with walls of windows bringing the beautiful woodsy outdoors right inside. The open kitchen area has a standard stove, large refrigerator, dishwasher and sink with plenty of counter space for preparing meals. There is also an outdoor gas grille and picnic table. Up the spiral stairs to the second floor, you'll discover two large bedrooms, one with a set of twin beds, the other, a queen. Both bedrooms have high ceilings, tall windows and wonderful views of the private grounds.

The totally naturalized setting of this special house will appeal to those who seek comfort in the beauty of the woods. The trees here teem with birdlife and this secluded sandy lane provides a pleasant stroll or jog past other country homes. Just minutes away by bike or car are the bay and ocean beaches.

Campground Beach is a short walk from the house....a perfect place to view the glorious Cape Cod Sunsets. During low tide the kids will love tidepooling there while adults relax nearby. During the high tide the surf is a beauty to behold. Also close by are miles and miles of the famed National Seashore Ocean Beaches..Coast Guard and Nauset Light ( Watch for seals often seen in the Atlantic!) Fresh water ponds with lifeguards just blocks away as well as the BIKE TRAIL and walking trails. There is canoeing, golf, Willy's gym , ATM's, thrift shopping, Movies (even a Drive-In!!), shopping, art galleries, restaurants, crabbing, clamming, fishing,gas stations, liquor stores, coffehouses, music, theatre, grocery stores, library, churchs, temple, fish fry, ice-cream and donuts.. fun, fun, fun. A short distance away are many special destinations like the Audubon Society ( 1000+ acres of land including hiking trails) on the saltwater, and whale watching , and seal tours ,yoga on the beach, bookstores, freshest lobster and locally caught fish, songbirds and SEA Air!

About Jeanne Fleming Mino

Although we grew up in the 'City' and now live in the Hudson Valley farm country, we LOVE the beach. In our early days of marriage, pre-kids, we'd go to the antique shops on the weekends and one time we found an antique CRAB door knocker. We joked that we'd build a beach house for it someday. When the opportunity came to buy this house we did and gave the CRAB a home :) Our children feel that Cape Cod is just as much home as where we live most of the time. They are well versed in fishing, crabbing, boating, whales,turtles and TIDES...a world very different from the pastures here in NY state. Because it is our second home, you will not feel like it is a rental. We take pride in making it feel like home. As a matter of fact, our House was featured on HGTV's National Open House in August 2007. We can't imagine life without our Cape Cod Teepee.

Jeanne Fleming Mino purchased this house in 2003

Why Jeanne Fleming Mino chose North Eastham

North Eastham is convenient to so much of what the Cape has to offer. It is one of the narrowest towns on the Cape..making it a short walk to the bay ( 10 min) and a short drive to the ocean( 6 min) There is a large fresh water swimming pond, with lifeguards, within walking distance of the house as well. Eastham is home to the famed National Seashore Beach- Coast Guard Beach- and a five minute drive to the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. Close by are all the places mentioned in the description and it is also the first town on the Cape that my husband and I visited together. After months of searching, we found this unique house in a rare, beautiful setting. We like its less manicured, woodsy feel.

What makes this house unique

Our property is private...We sit on a 'Cape Cod acre.' It is quiet and woodsy located down a sandy/grassy lane. ( No Rt. 6 traffice noise) There are other homes nearby but you have the sense of privacy without feeling isolated. I love to garden so there are plantings all over and the deck and upstairs balcony offer nice venues to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. The house has an open loft like main floor. The ceilings are high and the glass 'walls of windows' allow one to bring the outdoors, indoors. The bay is a short walk (1 mile)) away and the bike trail, restaurants, etc are easy to access. I love to cook also so the kitchen has lobster pots, bread maker, etc...everything the cook needs to prepare meals if you choose. Children are always welcome and they enjoy the spiral staircase as much as the safe play area all around the house. The kids will be safe so parents can relax.

The backyard is a large open area and there is a private hot/cold shower room there with a lovely beachy garden for dining and BBQ.

Quiet & peaceful but close to it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a peaceful, relaxing vacation at the Nauset teepee. The cottage is clean, well maintained and secluded. Jeanne was very helpful and attentive. We were close to everything and enjoyed exploring the national sea shore, area restaurants, whale watching from Provincetown and just lounging around the cottage.

Owner's Response: I'm pleased to hear that you found the cottage clean, well maintained and while secluded and peaceful, close to some of the very best destinations on the Cape. Lovely restaurants and National Seashore as well as biking, paddle boarding, kayaking and shopping nearby as well. Hanging at the cottage! Wonderful. You are welcome back anytime :).

Great location, very private.

Walking distance to the beach. We found the place to be quite dusty and not good for asthmatics. The property provided everything we needed.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the private location and the proximity to the beach. We do try to provide everything needed for an enjoyable vacation. Cleaners told to dust more deeply. Had I known during your stay I would have arranged a fix! I am available by cell for any concerns and my goal is always to make your visit perfect.

Unique property on a quiet lane. Everything you need for peaceful, relaxing vacation near all of Eastham's beautiful beaches.

Owner's Response: Tranquility and location. We couldn't agree more. Eastham has the famed Coast Guard Ocean Beach destination and gorgeous sunsets on Campground Beach and First Encounter, bayside, just minutes from our doorstep. We are smack dab in the middle of the Cape, so you can go shopping , sightseeing, and dining as well, yet enjoy an immediately peaceful and relaxing environment back at the house. We welcome you and your family again anytime of year. Thank you for choosing the Nauset Teepee!

The Nauset Tee Pee House is a wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our week long summer vacation in this well maintained cottage. It has everything we had hoped for and more! The location and privacy of the beautifully landscaped yard gave us the seclusion we desire when we wanted to relax. The open floor plan gave us plenty of room to do what we wanted, yet still be together. The instructions left to run day to day operations were well thought out and made simple. The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with as we planned our vacation. We definitely would like to stay their again.....and again! Thank you Fleming-Mino family for offering such a wonderful summer home.

Owner's Response: Always love to hear that our Teepee is everything and more! Glad you found our simple instructions for TV operation, washer/dryer, light switches and anything else renters need to know 'instructions' helpful. We have taken all our guests suggestions over the years and implemented them to make your stay the most Comfortable and Simple as possible. Yay! to A Frame living at the beach! for open floor plan, high ceilings, and ours in particular- natural landscape and privacy. You will be welcomed back anytime of the year.

Wonderfully secluded, spacious and comfortable. We'll be back for sure!!!

  • 5 of 5

Better than I ever expected. We've been coming to the Cape for over twenty years and this was certainly the best stay we've had. The house is wonderfully secluded, spacious and comfortable yet it's only minutes away from everything Eastham has to offer! The owners have made checking in and checking out seamless and completely hassle free. We look forward to coming back to this uniquely beautiful house for years to come!!!
