Overview

Massachusetts House Rental Photos and Description

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

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 Massachusetts

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.

The only bad part is leaving

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying a week at the Teepee, so that says something I suppose. For our families (adults and 5-6 year olds), this location is the most ideal on the Cape. And we just love this house! It has a woodsy feel, with a back yard perfect for making smores in the firepit. As others have mentioned, it's convenient for spectacular bay and ocean beaches (plus the underrated Great Pond / Wiley Park right down the street- a very nice swimming lake), and for getting on the bike trail (bike rental spot is within walking distance). The house is so comfortable and relaxing and well-equipped (but, yes, the spiral staircase that leads to the two upstairs bedrooms is a bit tight and could be challenging for some).

It should be noted that the house is not really "in town"- you will be biking / driving to most stores and activities. Works for us, since the trip is always beautiful no matter which direction you go, and cute Cape towns are within a few miles, but it's not for those who are looking for an in-town, walk-to-the-corner-store (or pub) experience. We enjoy the quiet, and the sounds of the birds...the tree-house feel of it all, and the easy accessibility to beaches and such.

The nearby Wellfleet Drive-In is good fun for the family (fun to bring lawn chairs and sit in front of the car), and whale watching in P-Town was definitely worth the money- it's magical to see them flopping around out there.

Also should be noted that we did pull a tick off one of the kids last year when we got home (probably picked-up at the Welfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, but hard to say for sure). Didn't turn into Lyme thankfully, but they are out there, and we were not so good at checking last year. We got the message- it is important to be vigilant every day about checking for them.

All in all, the Teepee house, and this part of the Cape, come highly recommended for those looking for a family-friendly, nature-loving vacation in a comfortable home with accessible, friendly and helpful owners. And I bet it's really nice off-season, when the crowds have thinned out and you can get more bang for your buck. It must be beautiful in spring, with everything coming to life, and the water's still warm in the fall (actually, the ocean is warmest then).

Thank you Jeanne- see you next year!

Peace and quiet in the woods

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed 3 days at this lovely home. Jeanne, the owner, could not have been more helpful. The front porch and backyard are private and wonderful for relaxing, the bedrooms are comfy, the kitchen well-equipped, and the outdoor shower (a personal favorite), terrific. I would have given 5 stars except for the living room being a little dark and the spiral staircase a little tight for navigating. That said, I'd definitely go back.

Perfect place for a get away

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at the property with friends for a long-weekend (post labor day). The property was amazing -- the house is beautiful and very roomy, and it is wholly private. You can't see the house from the road, and in the backyard you can only see a hint of the neighboring property behind it. This led to a very quiet and private atmosphere, which was very relaxing.

The house comes well equipped (plenty of pillows, blankets, kitchen supplies, spices) and is conveniently located. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (I highly recommend going to Arnold's for lobster rolls), as well as nearby grocery stores.

Jeanne (the owner) is very responsive to questions, and gets you all the information you need well in advance.

We all loved it and would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Attention to details! Love it. I am so impressed with your very descriptive comments of your stay at the Teepee, as well as your recommendations to other travelers. I couldn't have described it better myself. I am truly pleased that you and your girlfriend ( and friends) enjoyed your visit. Anytime your plans bring you back to Eastham we'd love to have you back!

Owner's Response: Sometimes 3 nights is all you need to rest, relax, and rejuvenate. I'm glad your family had some peaceful seashore time and the house was just what you needed for your getaway.

Best of all worlds

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to sleep on the second floor with a balcony overlooking a wooded area full of birds. The house is so private and cozy and yet both the bay and the ocean are minutes away. As well as excellent food with a Cape Code atmosphere. The house has the perfect vacation layout with lots of room-- indoors and out. Thank you-- when can we come back?

Owner's Response: Cool! It was sorta like sleeping in the forest canopy right?, only better because you are in a comfy Queen sized bed with a glass door ( or screen slider if you choose to leave the door that leads out to the balcony open) and a bathroom just steps away in the hall. The sun sets on that side of the house so you get the colorful evening sky. Next time you could check out the Master, with the King bed, on the other side of the house where the sun rises if you like to be up with the sun :) There's plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax, read, nap and then come together for meals and games. Great restaurants nearby and of course, some of Cape Cod's most brilliant beaches. Check the calendar and book your next visit! You're welcome anytime.
