Description

Description

Enjoy spectacular sunsets over the bay, cool breezes, watch the miracle of tidal shifts. Listen to the abundant sounds of birds, chase hermit crabs, walk to nearby Duck pond, ocean beach, bay and bike path. Or out the front door for a marsh stroll around the water, 2 minute walk cross the street for food shopping and post office, or spread out inside on breakfast room window seat, living room couches, or spacious downstairs bedroom.

Originally used as a year round home and pre-school, this fully furnished 3 bedroom home is situated on an acre of bayside land. The two story, 1 wing home allows for privacy between upstairs and downstairs spectacular master bedroom; upstairs double bedroom with skylight and loft for additional sleeping, twin bedroom, double living room area, breakfast area which opens on to deck, dining room and study area. Simple, functional and beautiful.

(There is a downstairs studio apartment with year-round caretaker.)

Very family friendly. Out of the fray of summer crowds. 7 minutes to beach or pond.Play board games in front of the fire and entertain inside or in enclosed playground area outside. Aesthetically pleasing original art work on the walls, shelves of fiction and non-fiction to choose from.

Our house is very accessible to route 6 and yet uniquely situated to be sheltered from the sounds of traffic. Ironically, a number of other houses which are actually farther off Route 6 on the Bay seem to be much more affected by car noise coming across the marsh. Our house noises are the wind off the Bay and the birds. The only moderate traffic sounds are heard from the parking area which is a distance from the “front” door and separated by a fence.

Dream Home

We returned from a perfect stay in this idyllic home in Wellfleet a week ago, but the effect lingers. Yes, the photos and description of the house and surroundings are completely accurate, but the peace in the air is indescribable. Our vacation began as soon as we started communicating with Betty, the warm and gracious woman who lovingly shares her home. This is a truly special and very loved place, undoubtedly not only by the owner, but also by those of us who now feel that it's our rentable dream second home. We can hardly wait to return. show more show less

A Quiet Repose

Tucked away off Rt. 6 you enter another world surrounded by nature, with beautiful views of the cove from the house and deck, stretching out the back. If you love bird watching this is the place. The house is spacious and well cared for, eliciting as sense of comfort and relaxation in an environment that underscores what time away is about. Easy access to Wellfleet Ctr. and the National Sea Shore, could not be more convenient.

A Beautiful and Peaceful Place

This is an idyllic and beautiful home. The dining room, living room, and deck look out on Drummer's Cove with many birds and magnificent trees. It has been so peaceful being here. It feels like paradise. There is a warmth and magic to this home. The kitchen is fabulous. The owner is such a warm and considerate person. I have loved every minute of being here!!

Wonderful Bayside Home

This is a beautiful house overlooking the bay, with great views for birdwatching out of the living room picture window and deck. It is spacious, well kept, very comfortable with lots of different places to stretch out and relax. The location is great, just a few minutes from town and the beach, with a couple good bakeries just a minute or two away. Highly recommended!

Relaxing and enjoyable stay in beautiful home!

This home has been well loved and is full of warm, peaceful, and inviting energy. Betty was a wonderful host. She kindly emailed us after our arrival to ensure that we were settled in well and asked if we needed anything.

We were staying with two families with four kids of varying ages and three parents. The kids loved waking up early to watch the tide come in and walk down to the saltwater marsh to go fishing and crab spotting. We all enjoyed the view from the deck and spent hours spotting the beautiful birds coming to the many bird feeders. Cooking together was wonderful in the very well stocked kitchen and on the outdoor grill. We also appreciated the excellent collection of books and board games, that helped keep us occupied during a rainy morning.

The home is very centrally located. We loved how close it was to PB Boulangerie and it is a short drive to beaches and gorgeous ponds. It is also a stone's throw from Truro and Provincetown. We could not have had a better vacation and we hope to return again.

Peaceful, Spectacular and Well-Loved Home on Gorgeous Tidal Bay

What an honor to stay in your beautiful home. Waking up to the birds, watching the tides flow in and then leave, eating wholesome food at the table, trying to read on the deck but getting distracted by the marsh and the light, having time, space and peace to face each other and be quiet and fulfilled.

This place will stay with us and we leave part of ourselves here.

Perfect spot -- peaceful, gorgeous, great kitchen

We had a truly wonderful stay over Labor Day. Betty was responsive, accommodating and easy to work with. The property was great - clean and as advertised. Peaceful deck looking over a bay, great kitchen, cozy setup. I'm a light sleeper and never heard road noise. We were there with a 3-year-old, and it was great.

I love this house

I love this house - not merely as a place but as an idea about how to live. There is a gorgeous and thoughtful peace to be found here.

It's always dangerous to probe into the moral basis of beauty-- the sea is beautiful but is there moral content to it? Perhaps yes, to be experienced in its implacable will to exist... But some beauty shows its relation to the good quite openly, plainly, and this house -- with its unfussy order, with its layout and design and the light that it draws in, with its artwork (especially that) -- is abundantly one of those places.

You can feel a goodness all around the place. There are so many areas in the house where you can sit and watch the tide change slowly in the tidal basin out the back windows, watch the extraordinary multitude of birds at the different feeders outside along the ridge where the hill drops off behind the house. Cape Cod despite its summer crowds -- especially in the upper Cape -- remains something of a wild place and you can feel that presence of nature here, away from the road, pointed toward the woods and the water below. Everything about the house shows the love and care with which it has been kept and with which life inside it has been lived. I cannot recommend it more highly.
