Authentic Cape Cod Saltbox, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and detached cottage for 2
Jane is a Brewster native, whose family heritage dates back to the earliest Pilgrim days. Her ancestors were among the first Pilgrims to settle in Brewster. She knows the Cape and New England well, and is always delighted to help with your trip planning.
Jane purchased this House in 2002
Why Jane chose West Brewster
We were thrilled when we were offered this property by the previous owner's family. It was their family's treasured Cape Escape for the past 50 or so years. Originally, the home was owned by the same family from the time it was built to approximately the 1930s.
What makes this House unique
Our home provides a rare glimpse into a simpler life in Brewster almost 200 years ago - but without the hardships that were endured in the olden days.

Comfort and History
The Saltbox is like a tardis, there is much more on the inside than seems possible from the outside. It is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities that you need for a holiday home. Brewster is an excellent centre for seeing the Cape.
Jane has kept her house immaculately, although we did not get the opportunity to meet, she answered the few queries I had by return email, very quickly.
You cannot be disappointed if you stay here
I LOVE the analogy... you're absolutely right. The little house is a lot bigger on the inside than on the outside. Thank you so much for visiting us, and I am so sorry we did not have a chance to meet in person. Please do come again! Jane
Great historic place and value,.really not suited for elderly.
Thanks so much for the review, and yes, I agree. The stairs as pictured on the website are as steep as they look and not well suited for anyone with hip or knee issues, no matter what age.
A beautifully restored Cape cottage with the most lovely yard we could have imagined. We got to meet Jane for only a few minutes... but she is the bee's knees.
We loved our stay at the Elisha Howard house. The house has been renovated to retain all of its charm but every modern convenience is there. The location was close to everything we needed.
Quintessential Cape home/garden
We absolutely adored our stay at Jane’s lovingly restored Salt box home (My husband, 2.5 year old daughter and I)! It was like stepping back in time, but with all of the modern conveniences and a gorgeous setting. The gardens are incredible and we loved the little sitting area outside. My parents joined us midway through the week and stayed at the cottage. We were perfectly situated to visit our favorite beach and other much-loved local spots.
This is our 30th summer visiting the Cape as a family, and I would recommend this sweet home to anyone. We look forward to returning next summer!
Perfect cape cottage!
What a beautiful little cottage at the cape. From the moment we pulled into the driveway we were thrilled we chose this property. Jane met us right away and soon we were all settled in .We were celebrating our 35 th anniversary and found it hard to even leave the cottage to sightsee because we were so happy right there! We definitely recommend staying here its clean, comfortable and the perfect little getaway.
The Elisha Howland House is located in a quiet and historic area of the town. The town's Grist Mill and Stony Brook herring run are within walking distance, and Paine's Creek beach, known for its stunning sunsets and great walking flats at low tide, is less than five minutes away by car. Within a 15 minute ride, vacationers will find three summer theaters, movie theaters, an art museum, a natural history museum, golf courses, and numerous shops and restaurants.
