“A lovely, friendly place that I'll be returning to!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2010

My first stay was with my sister who was accompanied by her granddaughter and a friend. We found the Mate's Quarters to be spacious, clean and comfortable. And the deck overlooking the water was itself worth the price of admission! The hosts were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I'll be returning this fall with a few more sisters plus a niece and nephew (and my canine companion Hazel) to have a mini family reunion of sorts. And I know we will all feel welcomed and very happy to be there!

Anchorage on the Cove is right on the beautiful Town Cove in Eastham less than a mile from Orleans. It is very private, right on the water with beautiful views. I have stayed here a number of times and always look forward to a week at the cape in August.

The units are clean with well-equipped kitchens and two bedrooms. This year we had a unit that had an outside shower in which we used instead of the inside shower. Great to be outside on the water with fresh cape cod air.

We always use the grill provided on the private deck to make meals. Cooking Lobsters in the 3 to 4 pound range has become a tradition for us. There is more than plenty to do. Anchorage is near the Cape Cod Rail which is a famous biking trail. Some of the Cape's most beautiful beaches are nearby. Some of our favorites are Coast Guard and Nauset beach. You can also get to Provincetown in 30 minutes which is a great place to have dinner and enjoy the evening. Make sure to visit the Lobster Pot.

Anchorage also provides kayaks and canoes at no charge. The Inlet is a great place to clam and fish or just float around. Every year from the deck we see Osprey diving into the water and grabbing fish for their meal.

This truly is a gem and the perfect place for relaxation or a romantic getaway. If you like to be active and near some great beaches you should book a trip.

As ex-Cape Codders and yearly vacationers, we were looking for a new place to stay, and I think we found it here. Set right on gorgeous Town Cove, every unit with its own private deck - heaven! Beautiful sunrises over the cove out our bedroom window. Sunny, clean, well-equipped kitchen - you can eat breakfast and watch the birds on the water. We loved the gas fireplace - very easy to use and romantic. All amenities - satellite TV, a nice selection of books and games. The beds were equipped with nice solid mattresses - we slept like logs!
Our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We have lived on the Cape for many years and know our way around, but Kathy is just a wealth of knowledge about good places to go to eat, shop, sightsee, etc. They were available to answer any questions we had or provide a service. We were truly made welcome. We are looking forward to our next visit already - we didn't have a chance to try out the kayaks and canoes they have available!

We stayed with our teenage son and a friend of his,also a teenager. We were there the same week as the disatified guest who left earlier (Wayne?). We have stayed many times over the last several years and found Anchorage on the Cove a great place if you have family. We found our cottage (Pliot House) clean and neat and comfortable. Despite the bad weather the first 3 days (a real Nor'easter) we made do, the boys fished off the dock, took one of the skifs out and had fun anyway. And a real plus the cottage has a gas fire place which took the chill out of a very rainy 3 days (and the roof does not leak). We hung in there and as Mark Twain pointed out if you don't like the New England weather just wait a minute - the last 4 days were sunny and warm. Dennis actually gave both boys a flyfishing lesson (he is an expert) (no addtional charge). The location is very convenient to all the outer Cape from Orleans to P"town. They provide a canoe, skiff, or kayak all included anytime you want and the cove is a great place to kayak. Kathy and Dennis are wonderful hosts- very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Anchorage and we will return next year.

We rented the Bell Bouy. This cabin was filthy! The floors were dirty. Horrible smells! And the roof leaked! Rented cabin for a week but left after two nights. Owner offered no refund. This place seems like a scam. CAUTION...stay clear of this place!

Eleonore, Owner at Anchorage on the Cove, responded to this review, 1 September 2010
It's a pity that our guests' stay coincided with a nor'easter' storm that socked in the east coast for 3 days. I heard from other guests that this family was unhappy at the rain, and was "calling it quits." If they had stayed one more day, they would have seen Mother Nature return to normal and would have finished out their week as the 6 other families at Anchorage did. Our unhappy guests brought a dog, and stayed in the pet-friendly Bell Buoy Cottage. When Mrs. X called us at 9 p.m. to say her husband's cat allergies were acting up, and that he was taking medication for it, I reminded her that they had specifically wanted a pet-friendly cottage for their dog, and that I had told her at check-in that guests with cats had been there 2 weeks before. She had said at check-in that they would "give it a try." This review fails to acknowledge both the weather and the allergies, which were the source of their problems. A regrettable experience. As I sympathetically mentioned to Mrs. X in her 9 p.m. call, this must have been the "vacation from hell.". We do not give refunds for acts of God, and certainly not for allergies that Mrs. X knew might be a problem. The irony is that we were thinking of offering this family a gift certificate toward a future stay, but the distortions posted here caused us to change our minds. In addition, these guests failed to follow our check-out procedure, and left the place a mess -- unmade beds, food and garbage left behind -- all despite a detailed check-out list given to Mrs. X. We feel that our other reviews offer an accurate description of the Anchorage on the Cove experience.

Beautiful setting in a great part of the cape. Close to beaches, biking, and great seafood. We brought our small dog and everything worked out great. Top Deck apartment was very spacious, but cozy.
