Location:
The Main House is part of an 'Olde Cape Cod' cottage colony known as the Sea Shells. Our beach is private, quiet, and beautiful. Gentle waves, no rip tides to worry about. Our beach is GREAT for swimming, boating and young children.

Walk down the beach to the left:

Wellfleet Harbor & Mayo Beach. (TripAdvisor's Top 10 U.S. Family Beaches, the only 1 in New England.) Wellfleet Pier. Here you'll finds restaurants, a walk-up window for burgers, fried clams and ice cream with beach side picnic tables. Take a fishing excursion on the Naviator or rent a sailboat. There's an art gallery at the Pier too. Walk a little further to the historic village of Wellfleet for shops and Wellfeet's thriving art galleries.

Walk down the beach to the right:

Approach ''The Gut,'' a sand bar that connects Great Island with the rest of Wellfleet. Quiet, beautiful beach to see the sun set. Kayak or walk to the protected and secluded beaches of Great Island at low tide. This is part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Explore! There is a inland trail to the site of a tavern from the 1700s. Try to make it to Jeremy Point.

New for 2016: 2 SUP boards! Expanded kids room. Mahogany front deck.

Things to do:

The Best kayaking on Cape Cod, swimming in Wellfleet's pristine kettle ponds, Wellfleet's magnificent ocean beaches & dunes, clamming, Wellfleet's world famous oysters, the village of Wellfleet - groceries, ice cream, Hatches fresh produce, fresh fish, blueberry pancakes for breakfast at the Lighthouse, art galleries, child-friendly restaurants, a farmer's market with local organic produce, deep water fishing in Wellfleet Harbor with the Naviator- they have the rods & reels & they'll clean the fish for you.

Fish off the pier, there's a railroad bike trail in Wellfleet & many trails in nearby Provincetown, (bike rentals in Wellfleet). The Wellfleet drive-in, Wellfleet movie theatre, go to a show at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre (W.H.A.T. Voted Best of Boston - Boston Magazine), see paintings of renowned artists in Wellfleet's varied art galleries, close to Chequessett Golf and Country Club - Wellfleet's seaside golf course.
Visit Provincetown and go whale watching, grill on the Main House deck overlooking the water or dine at al fesco at Wellfleet pizza. Go out for lobster, the restaurants are child friendly. Call Mac's and order lobsters, they'll cook 'em for you, pick up at the Pier. There's the Wellfleet flea market, the Marconi site where Marconi invented wireless, visit the Highland Light Lighthouse in Truro.

Audubon Society Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary & nature center - what a great place! Whale watches, beautiful sunsets, scenic drives, learn to surf, sail, go birding, or don't go anywhere - just listen to the birds sing, the sound of the waves. From the Main House it's about 30 steps walk to the beach - kayak, swim, or collect sea shells, watch the oyster farmers tend to their oysters.

Relax, let the kids have fun exploring, collecting, making happy memories. At night read a book, (we have a decent collection), we have Netflix, begin writing Your book, listen to the waves. The salty sea air is invigorating, sleep will be restful.

A Special Spot, Indeed

My family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed ourselves last August. The location is hard to beat, with a lovely, sandy beach steps away with a killer view.

The house was very homey/comfortable in the best sense. One of the owners, Howard, was a joy to work with.

Location, Views, Access, Luxury

The Main House is a beautiful place in a quiet cluster of beach-front cottages. My family and always some assorted friends have been staying here for 10 or so years now for a week each summer, and I don't think we could ask for more. So I really owe a review.

From the second floor and its long, spacious wooden balcony, where there's a view of the sea, and from the first floor, you can simply walk a couple hundred feet to the beach itself. The house is very tastefully arranged and has all sorts of amenities, from kayaks to a ping-pong table, a wide screen TV to a second-story porch grille, and a backyard. This is the kind of place that can really hold a sizable group of people. The first floor is a nearly complete living space on its own, with several bedrooms and a full-sized fridge, a spacious living room and sliding glass doors leading to a backyard area with ping-pong table. The second floor has a master bedroom, a kitchen with a giant island, and a long table for sit-down meals. Plus comfy couches and giant chairs for group hang-outs or movies. The house is really well-located, just a few minutes' drive from the Wellfleet pier and the downtown area and 15-20 minutes to ocean beaches and ponds.

One of our family traditions has been to go out after dinner and walk along the sand the mile or so to the pier for ice cream. I've loved my time at the Main house because of its access to the treasures of The Cape, but also because of the way the sun slants into the second floor living room on summer days, sitting on the balcony at wooden tables under sprawling umbrellas with coffee and the newspaper, and grilling food on cool, starry nights with a wonderful, pulsing sea just across the way. Would highly recommend.
