The space
Well maintained log cabin built in 1954. Lovely views of the lake from the patio and most rooms in the house. While inside the home you have a feeling of being in the trees, in a secluded private cabin, yet you are in a community of other cabin homes, not far from some lovely restaurants, Appalachian Trails and shopping. Children are welcome but supervision is needed due to open loft space 2nd level.
Guest access
You will have use of the entire house. BBQ grill on premises, patio with lake views, outdoor breakfast nook . Free parking in front of house and on street. You will have access to the town beach which is 3 miles down the lake road from the cabin. You will not be able to access the private community beach.

Owner info


Jeanne Fleming

Although we grew up in the 'City' and now live in the Hudson Valley farm country, we LOVE the beach. Pre-kids, we'd visit antique shops on weekends and one time found an antique crab door knocker. We joked that we'd build a beach house for it someday. When the opportunity came to buy this house , we gave the crab a home :) Our children feel that Cape Cod is just as much "home" as where we live most of the time. Though they are grown now, the boys remain well versed in fishing, crabbing, boating, whales, turtles, and Tides...a world very different from the pastures and mountains of NY state. Because it is our second home, you will not feel like it is a rental. We take pride in making it feel like "your home away from home". As a matter of fact, our House was featured on HGTV's National Open House in August 2007. We can't imagine life without our "Nauset Teepee".
Jeanne Fleming Mino purchased this House in 2003
Why Jeanne Fleming Mino chose North Eastham
North Eastham is convenient to so much of what the Cape has to offer. It is one of the narrowest towns on the Cape. It a short walk to the bay ( 10 min) and a short drive to the ocean (6 min) There is a large freshwater swimming pond, with lifeguards, within walking distance of the house as well. It is home to the famed National Seashore Beach- Coast Guard Beach- and a 5 min drive to the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary. Nearby are all the places mentioned in the description. It is also the first town on the Cape that my husband and I visited together and fell in love with after a weeklong stay. You can't imagine this unique house in its rare, beautiful setting. We like its less manicured, woodsy feel. You will too, so come and check it out. :)
What makes this House unique
Our property is private. We sit on a 'Cape Cod acre.' It is quiet and woodsy located down a sandy/grassy lane. ( No Rt. 6 traffic noise) There are other homes nearby but you have a sense of privacy without feeling isolated. I love to garden so there are plantings all over and the deck and upstairs balcony offer nice venues to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. The house has an open loft-like main floor. The ceilings are high and the glass 'walls of windows' allow one to bring the outdoors, indoors. The bay is a short walk (1 mile)) away and the bike trail, restaurants, shops etc are easy to access. I love to cook also so the kitchen has lobster pots, bread maker, all the cook needs to prepare meals if you choose. Children are always welcome and they enjoy the spiral staircase as much as the safe play area all around the house. The kids will be safe so parents can relax.
The backyard is a large open area and there is a private hot/cold shower room there with a lovely beachy garden for dining and BBQ.

Guest Reviews


This cabin is wonderful and we had a great time. We will definitely be booking again


Jeanne and Peter are super communicative and thoughtful hosts. The cabin is cozy but is full of little resting nooks. Great kitchen for cooking! My group loved it so much were considering coming back during a different season to take in the view.

Magic Place

This is a magic place to spend down time in the woods with friends or family.

Beautiful, cozy

Beautiful, cozy log cabin on the lake with a spectacular view. Nothing the host left out very detailed in her amenities, clean cabin.

Great Location

The cabin met our high expectations and more, I booked it because of all the great reviews. It offered everything we needed and more. The beds were very comfortable, we had a good nights sleep from a day of exploring. It is in a great location. It isnt too much of a drive to local towns. Jeanne was an excellent host! I would def recommend this cabin to anyone staying in the area.

Jeanne's place was perfect

Jeanne\'s place was perfect. It was in a great location right near the lake, it had everything we needed and was incredibly clean. We\'d definitely stay again.
