Nauset Pines House History
In the 1960's Eliot and Lillian, both lawyers in Philadelphia, bought this plot of land and designed and built their dream retirement home which they lovingly called Nauset Pines due to its location next to Nauset Beach. They had both grown up in Massachusetts and had fond childhood memories of summers on The Cape. Shortly after they built Nauset Pines president John F. Kennedy enacted the Cape Cod National Seashore Legislation. As a result, all the surrounding land became National Seashore and was protected against future development. After Eliot's death in 1984 Lillian, lovingly known as Nana, lived in the house year-round. She adored the stunning ocean views and fresh salty air and loved entertaining 4 generations of family and friends every summer until her death at age 98. In 2011 Eleanor assumed ownership of Nauset Pines. Currently she and I continue sharing it's magic and charm with renters, family and friends from around the world. We have many repeat renters and nearly everyone who visits falls in love with the stunning setting and simple Cape Cod charm. Family, friends and guests enjoy beach walking, swimming, surfing and relaxing on Nauset Beach. They love biking around Orleans, swimming in pristine lakes, shopping in local art galleries, dining on fresh seafood and watching Rock Harbor sunsets.
