Description

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.

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!!!

Great house, great space, great location!

We LOVED our week in Wellfleet at Heidi's house. She was fantastic to work with, very responsive and caring. The house is large enough to accommodate many people, as noted in previous reviews. Because it is a renovated barn, it's got a lot of charm, and they kept the flavor of that throughout the house, including some cool farm-related antiques. I was told their plan is to update the bathrooms this fall. Though they worked fine and the water pressure was excellent, there is no doubt this investment will make this unique house even more comfortable. We enjoyed using the outside shower, too. The A/C units in each room were very much appreciated and needed the week we were there. The location is so convenient to everything! We loved the beautiful lakes, spectacular ocean and bay beaches, and being so close to downtown Wellfleet. Thank you again, Heidi, for everything! show more show less

Great house

Winterwood is a very comfortable and well-located house. We shared the home with another family for 2 weeks and had everything we needed for a great stay. And we saw some incredible shooting stars from the back porch. Thanks for a great stay!

Winterwood's Whale of a Week

It would be hard to manufacture even one complaint about Winterwood. Less than five minutes from Route 6, the home is shielded by forest from any sound of traffic. The house has a spacious kitchen and dining area which flows easily into the living room. The expansive master bedroom on the first floor lies down a hallway, providing privacy from the main activity area. Our three families, with three grandchildren, were quite content relaxing inside between short drives to beaches on either side of the Cape. The village of Wellfleet charmed us--quiet and intimate. The pleasant Winterwood owners supplied useful information on secluded recreational spots nearby. Not much further north is Provincetown's diversity of shops, old buildings and scenery, and about 30 miles south of Winterwood, the National Seashore's Salt Marsh Visitors Center offers daily tours and films.

We have been to Cape Cod many times over five decades. Winterwood stands out as a choice base for exploration.

Great Cape House

What a nice beginning of the summer. The house was spacious and comfortable and in a quiet location. Being within walking distance to ponds and downtown Wellfleet was a big plus. Our whole family enjoyed our time here. Thank you, Heidi.

A Great House for a Multigenerational Family Reunion

Our family - grandparents, parents, and grown kids - stayed at Winterwood. This house easily accommodates different generations. The 90-year-old grandparents stayed in the first-floor bedroom, and the parents, daughter, and son and daughter-in-law split up the upstairs bedrooms. Having an open floor plan kept everyone connected even if we were in different parts of the house. And the dining room deck is perfectly positioned to get sun from sunrise to sunset and perfect for those sun lovers who want to soak up rays.

A more than fully stocked kitchen allowed us to whip up breakfasts, lunches, and dinners to our hearts' delight. There are also lots of small homey touches in the interior decor that really contribute to a comfortable stay. Finally, it's quiet, private, clean, well-kept, close to Route 6 and a short walk to two great ponds. Hard to believe, but it's even more spacious than it looks in the photos!

Wonderful Introduction to Cape Cod

This was the perfect place for our family holiday. Winterwood is a gorgeous house, which is well laid out, spacious, bright and airy. We loved the two decks and large kitchen table for sharing family meals.

Heidi has done a wonderful job, equipping the place with everything you could need. With beach chairs, children's toys, books, CDs, DVDs and kitchen supplies, it really felt like a home away from home.

The neighbourhood is very peaceful but at the same time so close to many things. It's a nice bike ride into Wellfleet and Long Pond, lovely stroll through woods to Dyer Pond and then a short drive to bayside and ocean beaches as well as a number of freshwater lakes. We were spoilt for choice in where to go each day.

This was our first visit to Cape Cod and we were blessed to have found Winterwood! We will be back without question!!

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.
