Holiday Rental House
Smith Heights Cottages offers five acres of seclusion and ambiance reminiscent of bygone days of Cape Cod. Our waterfront cottages are located on Eastham's Town Cove and have been family run and operated for five generations. The cottages were built in the early 1900s at the highest point on Town Cove, and we have preserved their historic charm. Their classic turn-of-the-century architecture includes a screened-in porch that overlooks Town Cove, and the Atlantic Ocean is visible in the distance. Each cottage's porch invites reading, watching the boats and kayaks, or taking a summer nap. Many of our guests bring their binoculars, bikes, kayaks and canoes so that they can enjoy all that the Cape has to offer. Some of our families who stay with us have been coming to Smith Heights for over 4...Smith Heights Cottages offers five acres of seclusion and ambiance reminiscent of bygone days of Cape Cod. Our waterfront cottages are located on Eastham's Town Cove and have been family run and operated for five generations. The cottages were built in the early 1900s at the highest point on Town Cove, and we have preserved their historic charm. Their classic turn-of-the-century architecture includes a screened-in porch that overlooks Town Cove, and the Atlantic Ocean is visible in the distance. Each cottage's porch invites reading, watching the boats and kayaks, or taking a summer nap. Many of our guests bring their binoculars, bikes, kayaks and canoes so that they can enjoy all that the Cape has to offer. Some of our families who stay with us have been coming to Smith Heights for over 45 years to enjoy our beautiful views of Town Cove, Nauset Marsh, and the Atlantic Ocean. We offer week-long rentals from May to October. Many of our guests rent two or sometimes three weeks. Each cottage is equipped with a full kitchen, charcoal grill, internet, cable TV, and DVD player. You only need to bring your bath towels and bed linens. Each cottage has a maximum occupancy of six people. There is plenty of parking. There is also space for boat trailers. Although the cottages are quite secluded, a Stop n' Shop grocery store, restaurants, and stores are only five minutes away. Coast Guard Beach is located three miles from the cottages, and the Cape Rail Trail is within a half mile. Rock Harbor with its beautiful sunsets is 3 miles away. Step back in time and relax. McKechnie: This early 1900's antique cottage sits atop the Heights and provides a wonderful view of the Town Cove and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Most of our tenants have been coming for 20-40 years, so this is a unique opportunity to find a place you will want to come back to for years to come. There are three bedrooms ( two with two twin beds, one with a queen bed), 1 bath, full kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave), internet cable, and DVD player. One of the bedrooms is accessed from the back porch-- perfect for teens and adults. The comfortable front porch has a view you won't want to leave. You can watch the sunrise over the marsh and Town Cove from the porch while you sip a cup of coffee, and in the evening, take a quick ride (10 min) to the bay side to watch the sun set. Step back in time and relax. Cottage, porch and surrounding area (5 acres) are all non-smoking. More
