About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage Inside Eastham's National Seashore

This like-new cottage was completely renovated in 2015, and has hosted its inaugural season of visitors during 2016! Perfectly located within the National Seashore, you’re a sea breeze away from world-famous Coast Guard Beach -- a simple bike ride or walk along the bike path will take you there.

When day is done, head back to this cheerful cottage for an invigorating outdoor shower. Spend the evening grilling out on the large deck, with a private yard beyond. Our cottage has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, with space for your family to spread out and relax. The well-equipped kitchen has all the tools you need to whip up anything from a cheese plate to a full lobster bake!

Three flat screen smart TVs and WiFi allow you to stay ‘connected’ if you wish and your choice of board games and books can keep you entertained late into the evenings. Air conditioning will keep you comfortable should the ocean breeze play hide-n-seek; when the air is crisp, extra blankets will keep you toasty. Plenty of room in the one-car garage to store your kayak and surfboards --- we provide beach chairs and umbrella, boogie boards and 2 bicycles!

Chatham, Wellfleet, Orleans and Provincetown are all a short drive away and offer a change of pace when you need a break from the sun, or just want to try one of their many great restaurants. Don’t forget to try one of Eastham’s fresh water ponds, or spend a lazy afternoon at one of the many bay beaches ---- sunsets can’t be beat!

Having a vacation home in Eastham has been on our ‘bucket list’ for many years; come this season and enjoy a little piece of our dream!

About Karen Dean

I have loved Cape Cod since I first visited in 1981. The Cape is not a 'typical' vacation spot for Marylanders; I was lucky to have a college roommate who introduced me to Eastham for the first time --- I was hooked from that first visit. I've rented cottages for all the years since, knowing that I would eventually buy a home there one day. And, now, my dream has truly come true!

Karen Dean purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Karen Dean chose Eastham

I love Eastham.......its quiet, low-key vibe, yet close enough to get to all the other places I love to visit. My cottage is inside the National Seashore, which protects the area from all further development. It's also unbelievably close to Coast Guard Beach, which is where you can usually find me on any sunny day I'm lucky enough to be in Eastham!

What makes this cottage unique

As a long-time vacation renter, I had a wide variety of rental experiences through the years. I tried to incorporate all the features I grew to expect.......after all, I spend as much time there as possible (mostly in the off-season, of course) and I want it to feel like 'home' too!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

Spacious deck and very nice gas grill. The interior was also spacious with two living rooms. Nicely decorated through out. Very good location to the beaches, biking and walking trails. Would definitely recommend.

My family of 4 had the pleasure of staying in this lovely home this past week. The home itself has a cottage-y Cape feel, but with modern updates, such as 3 flat screen TV's with extended cable and central a/c. The décor is beautiful and comfortable and the location is great, about a 3 min drive from RT 6. You are between Nauset Light and Coast Guard Beach, but just across RT 6 to all of the bay beaches. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again...if available!

Lasting memories!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything: location, deck, AC, wonderful furnishings, bikes, a grill, the list goes on and on! We were lucky enough to stay here for 2 weeks and can't wait to come back! A quick ride to the beach, shellfishing nearby, the bike trails! Every time we turned into the National Seashore to get to the cottage we felt like we were entering paradise! All of this added up to an incredible summer getaway! And as for Karen, the owner, I couldn't have been happier with her kindness and quick response to all my questions! Next summer can't come soon enough!

Charming house - exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

This adorably renovated cottage has everything you could want for a trip: proximity to the bike path and Coast Guard beach, a delightful outdoor shower and deck, and comfy beds for peaceful dreams.

The owner has truly thought of everything - from bikes, "backpack style" beach chairs, and boogie boards in the garage to rainy day board games and copper mugs for your Moscow Mules, this house is perfectly equipped with everything you need for a perfect Cape vacation. The owner is responsive to any and all questions and quick to reply. I have been coming to the Cape for almost 25 years and this is by far the best rental experience I've had. Looking forward to coming back next year!
