Description

Description

Bright, clean and comfortable contemporary cottage on private road (sleeps six) in the desirable Indian Neck area of Wellfleet. Perfectly situated overlooking tranquil Fox Island salt marsh/bird sanctuary.

It's a short (5-minute) walk down private dirt road to a number of beautiful Wellfleet Harbor bay beaches. Short drive to ocean beaches and many freshwater kettle ponds. Beautiful area for walking and hiking -- walk along the water's edge and over Uncle Tim's Bridge to the village of Wellfleet with its multitude or art galleries and shops. The Cape Cod Rail Trail bicycle path is not far (behind the South Wellfleet General Store).

Cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen. The living area is bright and airy with sliding door leading to deck with BBQ grill and beautiful views of scenic saltwater marsh. Master bedroom also has sliding door to deck with views of marsh (from the bed). The close proximity of the marsh and its wildlife ensures tranquility and wonderful bird sounds. Enclosed outdoor shower -- what a great way to rinse off after a day at the beach! Cable TV/DVD (cottage is also stocked with numerous books, toys, DVD's and games). Newly-renovated bathroom and central A/C.

Sorry, no pets or smoking.

Quiet, secluded, peaceful home

We have rented Heidi's cottage several years now, and always come out feeling rested and peaceful. It is nestled in a nature conservation area, and birds love it there! The cottage was left very clean and welcoming as always. We hope to return next year again! Heidi is very responsive to e-mails and if necessary, phone calls, if there are any issues.

Heidi was a very friendly and helpful host. The house was clean, lovely and well located. The view is quite pretty. The house is located on a small quiet dirt road. The house was brighter and fresher than the photos show. The deck was a great place to have our meals. Very family friendly. We loved the easy access to the bay beach.

A beautiful view

We loved staying in this cottage with its beautiful view of the marsh. The cottage is well-equipped and has lots of windows to let in cool breezes. It's in a very quiet location, so we had a very relaxing week. There's a nice beach a short walk away.

Heidi's cottage is really a great place. The deck overlooks a beautiful marshy cove and there is plenty of room to sit and eat outside. The rooms are ideal for a family with kids. Heidi was very accommodating. Great place.

Lovely Stay!

We really enjoyed the house. We ended up being in Wellfleet during a heat wave, and we were very grateful for the central a/c. The house had everything we needed for a wonderful week away.

Wonderful retreat

This cottage was great. It was clean, had a fully equipped kitchen, and shelves of games and books for everyone for those rainy days. My favorite part of staying here was waking up to a view of the marsh and trees. The spot is very very pretty and relaxing.

A lovely spot

We really enjoyed our stay in this well-equipped cottage. It's in a very quiet area, with lots of birds, a wonderful view of the marsh and woods, and a lovely beach within walking distance. There were lots of games and books for rainy days, and a working fireplace.

A lovely stay

We enjoyed a lovely week in this house. We had intended to travel up and down the Cape, but we found ourselves sitting on the porch enjoying the view of the marsh and activity of the birds and chipmunks..

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.
