Cottage Guest rentals are set on over an acre of serene cape cod beauty.
The grounds are an eye-pleasing mix of natural woods and simple landscaping, in an eclectic upscale residential neighborhood. This peaceful oasis is on a quiet side street, with quick and easy access to the main roads.
The neighboring salt marshes and conservation land provide a buffer for wildlife and a multitude of migrating birds, many who can be observed frequenting our bird baths and feeders.
Salt marshes, conservation land, and the Cape Cod rail trail
("the bike path") are all within five minutes by foot. Just slightly
further along you’ll find sparkling fresh water ponds, balmy bay beaches,
the stunning Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet Audobon Sanctuary,
restaurants, cafes, shopping, farm stands, and our proximity to the bike
trail makes a car-free stay an easy option after arrival.
|Eastham is the quiet neighbor of Wellfleet
and Orleans, and begins the
Cape Cod National Seashore, with it’s forty pristine acres of
dunes, beaches, trails, uplands, and kettle ponds stretching across the arm
of Cape Cod to Provincetown.
Eastham is a central point on the outer cape, making it an ideal base for exploring mid to outer Cape Cod, from Hyannis to Provincetown. Eastham, and the entire outer cape, has inspired countless artists, writers and photographers with it's incredible qualities of light, untouched rugged landscapes, and quaint village scenes.
The landscape is nearly as idyllic and pastoral today as it was when Henry David Thoreau scribed his classic 'Cape Cod' published 1865, the same vistas which inspired Henry Beston's 1920's classic, 'The Outermost House'.
The 1920's also brought prohibition to the US, and rum running was a lucrative business for local enterprisers. Cape Cod's craggy bay side and many private sandy inlets made for a smuggler's dream, and romantic rumors of buried treasure persist.
Eastham has many interesting historic structures including the Cape's oldest wind-driven windmill. The town is famous for growing top-rate asparagus, turnips, and strawberries.
One of the countries top-ten rated beaches is in Eastham, Coast Guard Beach, and has been called by The New York Times "Cape Cod's Little Secret".
The town was the original home of the Nauset Indian Tribe, later settled by pilgrims, and marks some of the first pages of American history books in recounting The Mayflower's initial landing and Miles Standish's first encounter with the native inhabitants, the Nauset Indians, at First Encounter Beach.
A stay in Eastham is suitable for nature lovers, beach lovers, cyclists, fishing aficionados, birdwatchers, and anyone desiring a restful and restorative vacation by the sea.
