Description

Abutting the Cape Cod National Seashore, Winterwood is a beautifully restored, 19th century barn (formerly a popular bed and breakfast inn). Set on wooded grounds in a superb location, you can walk to the quaint village of Wellfleet with its multitude of shops and galleries or meander through the woods to freshwater and secluded Dyer Pond (there is no public parking). It's just a short drive to ocean and bayside beaches. Winterwood is located on a dirt road (off Long Pond Road). So, while you're close to all that Wellfleet and the Outer Cape has to offer, the location affords a wonderful sense of privacy.

The living area is open concept and very bright and sunny. The airy living room has exposed beams and French doors to a second deck. The fully-equipped kitchen has a large, farm-style dining table that comfortably seats 8 people. French doors lead to the deck off the dining area (gas grill on deck). There is a den area (with cable TV/DV). There is also a half bath (and laundry) on the first floor.

There are 2.5 bathrooms and a large, enclosed outdoor shower off the main deck area.

The four bedrooms include a large master on the first floor with king-size bed, sitting area and private bath with double sinks. The master bath and first-floor laundry/lavatory were updated in 2016. There are three more bedrooms upstairs, two with queen size beds and one with two twin beds. All the upstairs bedrooms have sky lights and air conditioning (window units).

The yard has plenty of space for kids to play. The walk to Dyer Pond through paths in the woods of the National Seashore is simply spectacular.

An assortment of puzzles, books, and games are provided for family fun after a day at the beach. Linens can be provided for an additional fee. Beach chairs are also provided.

This is a unique and special property in a fabulous location. You won't want to leave.

Heidi was incredibly responsive, gave clear and concise instructions, fair and clear house rules and made things easy. The list of local places to eat, to go and to see were terrific as well. The house has a warm rustic feel with all the modern conveniences you could want. Old recycled timbers with modern marble sink top bathrooms are combined extremely well.

We had a lovely fall getaway at Winterwood. The location was perfect - within walking distance to Wellfleet village and accessible to Provincetown and all parts of Wellfleet. Heidi's house was charming, old Cape Cod. All the bedrooms were bright and sunny, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Lots of interesting antique pieces and well equipped with everything you could want. The location was so peaceful and quiet, a perfect setting for relaxation. Thank you Heidi for all your helpful information! It was a pleasure to stay in your home. show more show less

My family and I had a delightful stay @ Heidi's Winterwood! This was an impromptu trip for us and Heidi's pre-trip communication made the weekend come together very easily. The house was open, clean and light-filled, charmingly decorated, with comfie beds and a touch of Cape Cod history everywhere - felt like coming home to family. Loved having walking directions to a lovely fresh-water pond available, as well as local menus and suggestions. We were in close proximity to a number of beaches and relished in the quiet, relaxing privacy of our location. We so hope we can gather ourselves again next year at this special place! show more show less

Perfect Spot for our Family Holiday

We've stayed at Winterwood three times now, and each time we love it even more. The house is spacious, well laid out and extremely well equipped. It is perfectly located; it's a bike ride from charming Wellfeet or Long Pond and a short drive from Cahoon Hollow Beach and several beautiful ponds. Heidi is a responsive and thoughtful host. For each of our stays, we have checked in and out with no problems, and the house is always spotless.

My family and I enjoy so many things about the house - barbecuing on the back deck, having family breakfasts around the big country kitchen table, relaxing with a book on the couches and playing in the garden. We also adore the outdoor shower.

Our daughters have a lot of fun with the toys, books and beach supplies which Heidi provides. It really feels like our home away from home and we look forward to returning next year.

A week at WInterwood

I may be spoiled forever. Winterwood is in such a lovely location. The house is great, the master bedroom is huge, the upstairs bedrooms smaller but just fine. The kitchen is very well stocked with pans, utensils, bowls, etc. The walk to the lake, however, was my favorite part.

Heidi was super-responsive to any questions or issues.

Great return to Winterwood

We stayed at Winterwood for 2 weeks during the summer of 2015 and were back for 2 more weeks in 2016. A great relaxing place to stay, very well-located and a comfortable home. Winterwood is a great place for children as well -- our children enjoy the collection of toys and games. Some nice improvements were made to the first floor bathrooms since last year. We hope to be back next year!

Great House!! Great Location!!

Our 3 generational family is so happy we found Winterwood! If you want character (it's a renovated barn with lots of history), comfort (very homey furniture), and location (near fly over into town on ocean side of Rt 6)!! this is truly an extraordinary place. Wonderful spaces to be social or to be quiet; games, toys, books for children (and adults) of all ages.

Kitchen is fully equipped, bedrooms are very comfortable, bathrooms new, etc. Everything amazingly clean! I don't think anyone ever took an indoor shower because of the great outdoor shower!!!

Heidi is also the nicest person. Very responsive to any problem that might arise. Oh, and did I mention being able to walk to the beautiful Dyer Pond!

Next year will be our third year. I'm already planning on it and can't wait!!!

What is special about this property?
Winterwood is a historic and unique property with modern amenities. Originally a barn built in the 1850's, it was converted into a home in the late 1980's. Since that time, it was a popular and successful bed & breakfast inn and now is available for private rental.

The open, spacious floor plan is conducive to family gatherings. The large master bedroom with brand-new bathroom is on the first floor, separated from the three upstairs bedrooms. The home really is perfect for gatherings of extended families.

Character and charm abound at Winterwood, from the original barn board walls to the one of a kind stained glass window in the living area. The home is filled with abundant natural light.



What is special about your town?
Winterwood's location is superb. Walking distance to Dyer Pond and to the village of Wellfleet. It is a short 5-minute drive to the magnificent ocean and bay beaches of Wellfleet.

While being close to all that Wellfleet and the Outer Cape has to offer, the home feels secluded (although it is not). Guests can relax on one of two decks and feel a great sense of privacy.
