About Joseph Weihs

I live with my family in Massachusetts and spent part of my childhood in California. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my kids.

Joseph Weihs purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Joseph Weihs chose Cape Cod

Location location location! We have been vacationing in the Eastham area for some years and fell in love with the beaches and nature. This cottage was just at the right spot to access the beaches as well as provide a calm retreat with the pond.

What makes this cottage unique

The pond and the location: Lovely pond views from the cottage and easy access to both bay and ocean beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at our little cabin in the woods! It is in a perfect location, and is well stocked. We loved feeling like we were in a treehouse as we watched the birds go in and out of the trees.

Cute little cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very cute - and small. The cottage is overlooking Minister's Pond - so that sitting out on the deck in the mornings and evening is very pretty. But it is very noisy - the traffic from Rte 6 (main thoroughfare) is ever-present and didn't allow for a relaxed experience.

The house has a master bedroom, a second bedroom, and a futon. The second bedroom has bunk beds - so that it didn't work for adults. The futon was workable. The house has several sensor-lights which activate - and that's really great except for the one in the LR near the futon.

The bathroom is very small and so is the shower. There is one small shelf for toiletries.

Joseph was very nice, helpful, and accommodating. We didn't get one email prior to our arrival but Joseph and HomeAway were able to help us.

The location is pretty good - under 10 min to Nauset Light Beach. Signage to find the entrance for the group of cottages was not great.

There are multiple cottages very close together. There was minimal noise - but there was some. Our neighbors were very generous offering us the use of their grill since we didn't anticipate needing charcoal and lighter fluid.

Overall - for our purposes, it was nice but didn't quite fit. I hope that future renters find a better fit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our cottage! We plan to replace the bunk beds with a futon bed at the end of this summer - some kids love them! As for the sensor light near the futon, thanks for advising about it. We will relocate it to a better spot so that it doesn't bother people in the living room area.

Overlooking lovely small pond from cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is small but very efficiently furnished & equipped. Joseph was very responsive & organized. The view of the pond was relaxing, felt like a writer's retreat. The location appealed to us, close enough to nature & restaurants. You could hear the traffic from the cottage but also many birds.

Overall it was perfect for three adults for three nights to explore Cape Cod.

Perfect for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to spend a quiet and relaxing week with my family, this was the perfect space for us! This cottage was spacious, neat, and had about everything needed to make our vacation unforgettable. It was very easy for us to find different things to do everyday since everything was around us. Also, having Province Town only a few minutes away was very nice and allowed or family to make amazing memories.

Peaceful Retreat on a Pond

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this small cottage located on a private pond in Eastham. It's the perfect size for a couple and one or two small children. The location is ideal as it is in between Wellfleet and Orleans. Our stay was very serene and it is a good place to get away and relax for a few days.

The cottage is located close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail:

The Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) is a paved bikeway that runs 25 miles from South Dennis to Wellfleet. The terrain is relatively flat with some minor grades in certain sections in the Lower / Outer Cape areas, specifically Orleans and Wellfleet. It easily offers the greatest variety in scenery and natural landscapes of all the regional bike paths.

The trail stretches from Route 134 all the way to Lecount Hollow Road in South Wellfleet. The name stems from an old railroad right of way it follows, which transported passengers and freight to Cape Cod in the early 1800s until around 1960. The CCRT is managed by the MA Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). It passes by many local points of interest and several areas with lakes suitable for swimming / picnicing, including Nickerson State Park in Brewster.

Continuously monitored by local police bike patrols, this paved path is a safe and enjoyable way to spend a Cape Cod summer day. Traveling through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet, the smoothly-paved surface (akin to gravel asphalt) makes the CCRT ideal for cyclists, walkers, inline skaters and runners. Bicycle and rollerblade rentals are also available at various bike shops conveniently located right along the trail in Dennis, Brewster, Orleans and Wellfleet.
