2 BR, 1BA, Sleeps 4 Waterfront Cottage on Minister's Pond
About Caroline Jacobson
I have loved coming to Cape Cod since my childhood. Now I get to share that love with my family. We loved to "Escape" to the Cape & our Nauset Haven cottage!
Caroline Jacobson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Caroline Jacobson chose Eastham
We loved this cottage, right on Minister's Pond. Having the private beach, rowboats, and swimming docks were the perfect bonus feature. We knew our family would enjoy many wonderful vacations here when we first stepped into the cottage. Eastham was the perfect location with all that it offers: Cape Cod National Seashore, including one of the Top Ten Beaches - Coast Guard Beach, the Bayside beaches which have been perfect with a young family, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and more!
What makes this Cottage unique
Nauset Haven is a wonderful vacation spot. Wake up to a waterfront view, enjoy the lovely views from the screened-in porch, and spend time at the private beach and swimming/boat docks. The boys love the fishing and I love reading on the porch. It truly is our "Escape."

Perfect Family Vacation
It was so hard to leave! Our family had an amazing vacation to the Cape and we will definitely be back to Escape. The cottage was immaculate and very well kept. The kitchen had everything you need. It is small (it's a cottage) but the perfect size for a family of 4 that is out seeing the sights and enjoying everything Cape Cod has to offer. The screened in porch was the icing on the cake. The view was so pretty in the morning with coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. It was unfortunate that the pond was closed for swimming due to algae issues that have been confirmed all over the country because of climate change. It had little effect on our stay with so many incredible beaches around. There are also some amazing nature hikes in the area! Good food is everywhere. Our son is vegan and a South African restaurant, Karoo, was just a minute away. Arnold's is very popular but stay away from the fried stuff (it starts to all taste the same) and their mini golf was tons of fun. The Eastham Superette had everything you might need to pickup during your stay and a liquor store too. We highly recommend Escape!
A perfect place for two adults and a child. Great location and easy to get to National Shoreline and miniature golf - our two go-to places. The only slightly negative would be the size of the kitchen. There is little place to store groceries and minimal counter space. But we grilled outside most nights, so it wasn’t a big deal. All in all, a great week away.
Great space, great location
The cottage exceeded our expectations and was such a great place to enjoy Cape Cod from. The space itself is cozy in a great way while still seeming like plenty of space. The pond (just a few steps away) is a great way to get in some peaceful swimming and is a nice complement to the great beaches that are all so close by.
The location of the cottage is a great jumping off point to explore other parts of the cape in a half hour or less. And the close proximity to the bike trail allowed us to bike to the beaches and save the admission fees.
Caroline was beyond accommodating and helpful in answering questions throughout the week and was great to rent from.
We would absolutely come back to Escape for another trip to Cape Cod and were already thinking about how we could rent other units to turn it into an extended family vacation.
Thanks for a great vacation!
Had a wonderful time at Escape!
