Did you know that during the warmer summer months, male blue whales sing at night? Our Whale Song on Minister’s Pond will have you singing throughout your visit to the Cape. This adorable, clean, cozy, studio with outdoor spa shower is dog friendly and just steps away from a private beach on Minister’s Pond. The cottage features a private patio area with new gas grill, a large yard with hammock, outdoor dining area, and sunny lawn for sunbathing too. The spa shower is huge with a rain shower held, as well as, a hand held, with spa amenities included. Please note that the shower is an outdoor shower. There is not an indoor shower option at the Whale Song. Inside you will find a comfortable queen-sized bed, a water closet (toilet and sink room), a kitchenette for your cooking needs, and a new Roku tv to watch your favorite streaming show or movie.   The shared area would be the beach area of the pond where we have a fire pit, beach chairs, and a canoe available.

The cottage is within walking distance to Arnold’s and mini-golf, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and the Salt Pond Visitor’s Center. Bike Rentals are just around the corner and the National Seashore beach shuttle parking lot is about a mile away walking or you can just take the Nauset Loop bike trail and head directly to Nauset Light Beach itself. 

• From July 4th to August 21th this is a Sunday to Sunday rental. 

• We follow the practice of not providing linens in the property as this is a safer and more hygienic approach, but we do offer lower-than-market linen packages with free bed making services included. 

All of our linens are crisp, clean, and soft. Our Turkish towels are thick, and plush. Our duvets are soft and all-season. Everything is high quality – not cheap and threadbare. Everything is washed at the highest temperature setting with bleach and oxygen-based cleaners. We take pride in what we do and it shows. Our guest reviews about our linens say it all! We offer a special rate linen package to which you can add additional linens (such as additional towel sets, etc) a la carte.

Package A $75:

· Queen bed sheet set

· Queen all-season duvet

· Two Turkish towel sets (bath towel, hand towel, face cloth)

· Two beach towels

· Bed making FREE

Of course, you still have the option of bringing your own linens as well, but why? No need to lug boxes of sheets, towels and blankets along when it can all be there, made up, and waiting for you for less than the cost of a lobster dinner!

• A/c for those extra hot days, heater for chilly nights

• An award winning, custom, state-of-the-art house guide with recommendations is provided for your visit

• Firepit available on pond beach (the beach is shared with other guests of ours, if around)

· New gas grill 

• Dog-Friendly (fee of $50). Dogs must be over 1 yr old. Please ask for details.

• Canoe  & kayak provided

• Sandy toes and beach hair guaranteed

Our cleaning teams use thorough checklists, followed by sanitization and disinfection of high touch points throughout the home. We follow CDC guidelines and use only approved EPA products for cleaning.

Eva (The Whale Song)
A Wonderful Vacation Spot!

A wonderful vacation spot! The cottage is immaculate and very cute and comfortable. I loved the outdoor shower and there is a great place to grill and relax outside. An ideal location for all the great spots on the Cape. You can also walk to the pond and use the canoe or kayak. Really a beautiful and peaceful spot. And Tara is fantastic!

Little Slice of Paradise

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway to the Cape you cannot go wrong renting from Tara. The Whale Song is a perfect, cozy cottage, in a great location close to some of the best beaches the Cape has to offer. Tara provides a comprehensive digital guide to the local area that will help you find everything you need to make the most of your stay. After a sunny day at the beach you can freshen up in the luxury outdoor shower and relax on the comfortable patio taking in the sounds of nature before you get ready to venture out for tasty seafood and a beautiful sunset on the bayside. You will not want to leave this little slice of paradise.

Small but great!

A little smaller than anticipated but overall a great place. Easy to get to the beach or anywhere in the cape. Super clean place, the outdoor shower is cool, didn’t get to use the patio because of the weather but the set up is great!

Perfect for a couple's retreat

Small but adequate, in an excellent location in a laid back and historic Cape location without the “big town” hustle and bustle. Perfect for a couple’s retreat!

Exceeded Expectations

Our stay at the Whale Song exceeded expectations. On a post-covid honeymoon road trip, we were entirely uncertain of what each of our stays might behold as far as cleanliness, value, and vibe would go. Tara’s accommodations and personable-hospitality checked off all the boxes. She is friendly and relatable, but not overly so, and so very helpful. She provides a guidebook via the Hostfully app that is not overbearing, but helpful and appreciated. The Whale Song is tiny, but quaint, clean, and refreshing. The Eastham area, and immediate surroundings couldn’t be more peaceful. And the outdoor shower! My husband uncertain going into it, and myself looking forward to it (as long as there would be hot water) - it was the most enjoyable shower experience ever! We highly recommend staying at the Whale Song, and encourage you to check out her other rental properties.
