Located in Eastham, this two bedroom apartment is the perfect place to wind down and warm up. After enjoying your day beachcombing, come walk down the dock and sit in an Adirondack chair and watch the winter birds. Launch the canoe we provide to take a tour around the pond and see what wildlife you can spot. There are many geese that fly over and make awkward landings on the pond as well. Wild turkeys often graze through the yard in the mornings as you sit sipping your gourmet coffee that we provide.  Feed the ducks from the dock.  Watch the hawk hunt for prey in our back yard.

How about lighting a fire in your private fire pit with the wood we provide. Have a gourmet s'mores party or just enjoy each other's company by the fire. Take a long, luxurious bath and try some of the spa amenities provided then curl up in the comfortable new king bed that overlooks the pond and has a view that is magnificent. The second bedroom is extra large and holds a pillowtop queen bed and another pillowtop single bed. All the beds have high quality sheets, duvets, duvet covers, and all-season comforters.

The full bath has a tub, shower, and shower bar perfect for warm bubble baths. There are fluffy bath towels and beach towels in the bathroom. The new tv is a Roku so you can stream your Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or other programs with ease. The new patio houses a grill, if you fancy and an outdoor dining table, chairs, and umbrella. A washer and dryer is in the apartment too. In the back yard you will find Adirondack chairs surrounding a fire pit. There are bikes to take out for a ride to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Shared space would be our private dock on the pond if anyone else happens to be around.

Tara's place was exceptional! Very clean and tidy, beautiful views and excellent location and great size space. I highly recommend staying here and the personal touches in the home make it all the more welcoming!

Home Away from Home!

The lotus was a home away from home! From start to finish Tara was clear and helpful. The house itself was better than expected and was beautiful, clean, had a lot of resources and everything we needed for our stay! I would stay here again! No complaints and very happy!

A Step Above

We had a great stay here. Nice looking clean space for 4-5 people. We enjoyed being close to the bike trail and the trails at the Salt Pond Visitor Center. Sitting in Adirondack chairs on the dock drinking coffee each morning was a peaceful perk. This place is a step above most other rentals!

Location is perfect and secluded

We had a wonderful time at Tara’s - the location is the perfect and secluded, and a short drive or bike ride from gorgeous beaches. We would definitely stay here again!

Second to None

Tara's place is just as beautiful as the photos. The location is convenient to so many places and the water access/deck from the back yard is second to none. We had coffee every morning on the balcony and saw such beautiful wildlife. The bed in the master was super comfortable too! All around, a top Airbnb stay! Thank you.

A Wonderful Experience

Great location in Eastham. I loved my stay there. The location is exactly as described and presented in the pictures. I spent a lot of time on the outside porch - I had some book writing to do and I enjoyed staying on the back deck on the pound. Tara was very attentive to the comfort of her guests and her level of communication was perfect. The bed was very comfortable and I really enjoyed the water pressure in the shower! There are a lot of great walking/hiking/biking trails nearby and plenty of nice food locations - I particularly recommend the bakery and coffee shop "The Hole in One". A wonderful experience a The Lotus. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Accomodations

Beautiful accommodations. The place is cozy with a lovely decor style. The dock out to the pond is gorgeous (would be amazing in the summer). Tara was hospitable and quick to respond to questions and requests

We would love to return here

This apartment is so lovely and cozy - the perfect place to spend a weekend! It's very close to the national seashore, many parks and beaches, and the Nauset lighthouse, and comes equipped with everything you need to explore or relax at home. The kitchen is extremely well-stocked. We would love to return here.

Perfect spot for quick getaway

Tara’s was the perfect spot for a quick getaway. It was clean, warm/relaxing, modern, and the check-in and checkout processes were easy. We felt right at home and Tara checked in with us to ensure we were satisfied. The spot is right near a pond and off the beaten path enough to make our stay quiet and enjoyable, but still close to major roadways to make it easy to find. The home had extra supplies like snacks and slippers which were a nice touch. We also utilized the smart TV provided. I would recommend Tara’s place for couples and solo travelers visiting the Cape.
