We are the Bennett Family From Saratoga NY. Bill, Debbie, Jessica, and Rachel have been vacationing in Cape Cod for 24 years. We have stayed all over the Cape and by far, Eastham is our favorite. We love the National Seashore, and the nature and beauty of Eastham. After years of vacationing, we knew this is where we permanently wanted to vacation; so the cottage on beautiful Minister's Pond was purchased.
Bill or Deb Bennett purchased this cottage in 2013
This property is unique for it is nestled in the woods on a beautiful pond and you feel so relaxed like you are far away from everything but in actuality, everything is all around you. We love the feel of the cottage which reminds you of old Cape Cod, with a rustic knotty pine kitchen, lake front, and fire place. The ultimate in relaxation.
We love the view from the back porch. In the morning the sun streams through the clouds and settles on the shimmering lake. We love the natural sounds of the pond and the beauty of nature that surrounds us. On chilly evenings the brick fire place provides a cozy atmosphere.
Oh my gosh! This was the perfect place for 4 women to enjoy lazy mornings and quiet evenings. My favorite 3 cousins and I spent a week on the Cape and used this lovely cabin as our "base Camp". The cabin is a perfect reflection of what is great about the Cape. Its casual enough to be so comfortable yet is up to date in the decor as well as super clean. It had all the supplies we needed. They even had lobster bibs, napkins and tools to have a lobster dinner (which we did- and laughed through the entire experience as we tried to dissect steamed losbsters).
The location was within 10-15 minutes of beaches which is where we spent most of the afternoons. The evenings were quiet. In fact, I'm concerned that our laughing may have disturbed others as I never heard any noise from any other cabin while we were there.
This was my first visit to the Cape and if/when I return I can say I don't need to look any further for a place to stay. This will be my go to property!
My husband and I have stayed at The Capehouse 2 years in a row now. After renting multiple houses on the cape we finally found one that is perfect for us. Having the pond right outside for boating, fishing, and swimming is excellent and the beach is only a five minute drive. The house is centrally located to all the things we love to do; the beach, hiking, kayaking, trips to P town and the well fleet drive in! The house is more than roomy and accommodating, we've even been told it's the best one at Nausett Haven (and I believe it). The owners are always very responsive to any questions or concerns we have had. We look forward to going back in the years to come.
Great location; this lovely cottage is located right near the dock and the communal beach. We had our own kayaks and were able to stow them under the cottage and launch them from the beach at a moment's notice. The cottage was cozy and had everything this older couple needed! The central location was great and allowed us to travel to Provincetown and Truro or Hyannis and Sandwich as very comfortable day trips. The close proximity to the National Seashore allowed us to kayak the salt marsh and to also see sea lions and glorious sun rises and sun sets. Highly recommend the Wicked Oyster, we had a fabulous meal there. Fresh sea food purchased on the wharf at Wellfleet that was brought back and cooked on the grill at the cottage was also fabulous. I am sure we will retur; Debbie and Bill and wonderful hosts!
The cottage that my family stayed in was great. We had everything a family could want for a vacation. They bedrooms are plentiful and the house has everything needed to make your stay enjoyable. Things like a coffee Pot, Dishes, a screened porch to enjoy the lake, Internet, a fire place, and easy access to the ocean. The beach is only minutes away. I will be back next year.
The cottage was lovely and so tastefully decorated.Everything we could possibly need was provided.the location was perfect.We enjoyed walking to coastguard beach from the cottage,kayaking in the salt marshes was close and convenient and of course the cape cod rail trail was nearby.We would definitely stay here again.
The cottage was described perfectly, no surprises when we arrived. A great location for a quiet place to relax, read, fish, visit beaches, and of course great seafood! We visited in the fall, so it was very quiet, which we preferred. The owners were great about answering our questions, we had no problems with the cottage, rental property. The services of the National Seashore and visitors center were also a great asset. Attended talks about the lighthouses, seals, and whaling captain's home. Not to mention that the visitors center had a wealth of information about the area.
Close to Skaket beach, a serene bay beach with wonderful sunsets, Nauset Light Beach with occasional seal watching, and beautiful Coast Guard Beach.
Other activities include bike paths, nature and hiking trails, playground, horseshoes, children's rec center with books and games.
