Not pictured is the full kitchen. It is a large area, and I could only get half of it in the shot. That and the little kitchenette and bar are the least updated part of the house in terms of aesthetics, but are perfectly functional and spacious. Well behaved dogs welcome as pets, but no cats, due to my kids' allergies.

About Michelle Nicholasen

We have 5 children and this is our summer/country/cape home. Please note that we like to handle transactions off line.

Michelle Nicholasen purchased this house in 2008

Why Michelle Nicholasen chose Eastham

There is no better location on Cape Cod! Everything you could possibly want is so close.

What makes this house unique

We have tons of watercraft to share with careful renters and experienced sailors. As for pets, well trained dogs are welcome but not cats due to my kids' allergies.


One mile from the gorgeous bayside beaches, and about 2-3 miles from the ocean beaches. Herring pond is a clean, spring-fed pond that is quiet with no motorized boats. There is a private sand beach right at the edge of our property, and a private dock. Nearby are several other kettle ponds, one with an enclosed playground. (Long Pond.) The CC Rail Trail (bike path) stretches for miles. You can walk to Eastham's historic windmill green, and tour the functioning windmill. Enjoy free concerts there in the summer. Provincetown is about 30 miles away. Summer theater for adults and kids is vibrant in Wellfleet next door. At nearby Salt Pond Visitor's Center sign up for walking tours, orienteering, clamming, and more. Also, the Wellfleet Bay Audobon Sanctuary is 4 miles away and shouldn't be missed. Don't forget one of the last Drive-In movies in the country is a few miles down the road.

Other Activities: use of our kayaks
