Spend your vacation in an absolutely spotless, pristine, luxurious, romantic cottage surrounded by gardens and directly on a freshwater pond. Every detail has been paid attention to. The Breeze is the perfect retreat that has earned accolades, been featured in articles, and consistently receives 5 star reviews.

Centrally located, the Breeze is within walking distance to Arnold's restaurant, mini golf and the Salt Pond Museum and Visitor Center. Take one of the bikes provided and hop on the Cape Cod Rail Trail (the bike path) which is just down the street. Walk to the Coast Guard Beach shuttle or follow the bike trail to Coast Guard Beach, less than 2 miles from your door to the National Seashore. 

After enjoying your day at the beach, come walk down the dock and sit in an Adirondack chair and watch the birds as they swoop over the pond looking for nibbles. Listen to the frogs sing or launch the canoe we provide to take a tour around the pond and see what wildlife you can spot or if you can catch any fish. We also have a floating picnic table! 

How about lighting a fire in the fire pit with the wood we provide. Have a gourmet s'mores party or just enjoy each other's company by the fire. Wash off the day in the warm water of the outdoor shower, try some of the spa amenities provided, then crawl into the bed that has been outfitted for a Queen. Swaddled in high quality, super soft sheets, the queen size bed is a pillow top mattress with an additional state-of-the-art gel cooled pad and padded mattress cover to provide for the best night sleep ever. 

The Breeze is a separate cottage that is connected to the main house by a breezeway on the backside which serves as an outdoor shower. We live in the main house and respect our guest’s privacy at all times. However, we are available, if needed, to answer any questions.

* A custom state-of-the-art house guide with recommendations is provided for your visit. 

* One Queen Ultra Comfortable Luxury Bed for 2 people. We do not have cots or extra beds and do not recommend anyone sleeping on the floor.

* Full size kitchen with everything you need for a New England Lobster Boil or just coffee on the dock in the morning

Located in the best part of the Cape overlooking a beautiful lake

The Cape is huge and staying in Eastham puts you close to the best beaches (National Seashore), 2 minutes from biking on the rail trail and two blocks from lovely Nauset Marsh. I researched where to stay for our first trip and this location can't be beat. Tara and Chip are generous hosts who are so helpful to us during our stay and invited us on a beautiful ride on their floating picnic table. This last point wasn't a negative during our stay but also wasn't clear to us before we arrived - the host also rents out their walk-out basement so you do share the dock and front yard with another family. During our stay that family was courteous and considerate and never used the dock which I loved to use to read and drink my tea so this wasn't an issue for us. Just something to be aware of when considering this property.

The Breeze

The cottage was very clean and comfortable, we enjoyed our one night stay immensely. Tara was very accommodating and pleasant, we would recommend staying here anytime. It was nice to sit on the dock after dinner and enjoy each other’s company in the quiet atmosphere.

Very Relaxing!

Tara’s place offers great comfort, cleanliness and a variety of things to do. This trip was very relaxing and Tara added to the trip by her prompt responses. Tara is a genuine kind person, she goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is memorable and comfortable. Tara is also very informative with things to explore on the cape. This world needs more people like Tara!

A Gem

The Breeze is a gem! My husband and I loved the space. Close to the bike trail and National Seashore. The cottage was amazing clean and well decorated. Tara did a nice job of attending to details that often are overlooked when renting a living space. We are looking forward to a return visit!.You will not be disappointed!

We loved the outdoor space

We had a great time at Tara's place - it's the perfect size for a couple and is in a great location. Tara is super friendly and a great host, she provided the perfect balance of being attentive but still giving us our privacy which we very much appreciated. We loved the outdoor space - the grill and fire pit were the highlights of our trip!
