Amenities & Room:
The king size bed is very comfortable and looks brand new Comfy front room with a tv and nice couch
the living space is well-appointed and
the beds are very comfortable
this l-shaped kitchen was pretty unworkable for anything other than basics
Small kitchen; lacking many essentials bathroom was outdated & lacked privacy (outdoor shower made up for this inconvenience)
However it was extremely clean
Fridge door - scratched and dented Guest welcome folder is falling apart and lacking info on beaches parking fees
The stained and careworn guestbook says this cottage has been a rental unit since the early 90s
nice hardwood floors well stocked very comfortable beds and a great outdoor shower If you like to bike very close to a rental shop and the bike path
We also were not able to get the oven to heat which further limited our cooking options
The biggest drawback for our family was the kitchen layout- we cook a lot because of some food restrictions and while we can typically make do with a cramped kitchen
It's close to beaches restaurants and amenities
Lots of lamps for reading
This Eastham location is the perfect spot for a Cape Cod vacation Surrounded by trees shrubs and bird song
It is not a good cottage if you plan to do a lot of cooking
- it really is the ideal getaway
