About Jeanne Fleming Mino
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.

Everything we wanted. We hope we can make it a tradition and visit again. It felt like a home away from home. We especially loved that there were toys for the 2 year old that was with us. Thank you!!
Exactly what we aim for - A home away from home- for visitors of all ages! Very pleased to hear it was the Perfect Getaway for your group! And yes, please make it a tradition and join our "Teepee family" of returning guests!! We'd certainly welcome you back.
Cape Cod TeePee
Wonderful private location. Spacious, clean, and well equipped interior. Spectacularly beautiful in the early fall. Would be very happy to return.
For those who can travel to the Cape during the colorful Fall months, it is spectacularly beautiful. It is a quieter visit on the Cape and our location is peaceful, clean, spacious and private. With the leaves changing, even the beaches and ponds "feel" and look different. Every season has its magic ! with different activities fitting Nature's changes here in our special spot! Many restaurants, shops and historic venues are still open and lines are shorter than in the summer months. Temps perfect for sight-seeing and bonfires, s'mores.
Very pleased with this rental. We enjoyed the quiet and privacy. Close proximity to the beaches. Spiral staircase is a bit tight and challenging, our parents were happy there was a first floor bedroom.
So glad you enjoyed the quiet, privacy of our Teepee! and the close proximity to the beaches! The spiral staircase is usually enjoyed by the younger members of the household most :) but it is perfectly safe and yes, the bedroom with the King size is on the main floor. ( and there are bathrooms on both levels, as you know!) So pleased that you were pleased with your stay! Please visit again :]
Great Cape Week
Loved our stay last week! Property was in a great location, close to both bay and National Seashore beaches. Especially loved the outdoor shower, zoned A/C in bedrooms and open layout. Thanks Jeanne for a great week!
We couldn't agree more! Location , location! The spacious loft like layout is great for family
( and friends) to gather for games, TV, cooking and conversation. Being able to control each bedroom and the living space a/c temps separately keeps everyone smiling! :) We are equally happy that you thoroughly enjoyed your week as we aim to make guest's stay clean, comfortable and hassle free! We hope to have you back!
Jeanne's house !
