1081 Route 6 #15, Eastham

Once upon a time there were two unusual men, similar only in that they looked to the future:  President Dwight Eisenhower and dream maker Walt Disney.  Ike saw that vastly expanding the interstate road system would bring travel to the middle class.  Disney created the concept of a destination vacation for the middle class in a world where only the upper class had previouly traveled for pleasure.  As others joined in this great new idea, groups of small cottages and cabins sprang up along highways and roadways.  Called "cottage colonies", they were managed much like motels, but offered affordable overnight accommodations with kitchens, private bedrooms, and yards to travelers.  As the value of property rose, these colonies followed suit, becoming individually and privately owned condominium cottages.  

The Carlson cottage is such a condo,  Located in southern Eastham,  tenants can easily drive to Orleans, the hub of the Outer Cape, while enjoying their rights as residents to access Eastham's many beaches on the ocean, bay, and ponds through the town and National Seashore parking sticker programs.  Added to that, it is also close to an intersection with the Rail Trail, a state-maintained paved bicycle path along the bed of the old railroad.  The Rail Trail allows people to bike or hike through all or part of seven towns as well as crossing many roads that lead to beaches, shopping, and attractions.  

The Carlson cottage has one bedroom nd a queen sleep sofa, and provides a private home base for up to four people to live, eat, and enjoy anything from a honeymoon to a family vacation, or a relaxing setting to do homeework (as those attending the CCI continuing ed seminars can bike to the school through some on Eastham's less developed and less visible areas).  It is newly remodeled, comfortably redecorated, and compactly designed.
