We were fortunate to be able to spend more than a month in this haven during the spring. It was the perfect medicine for us after all the trauma and turmoil of 2020!
The home was warm and welcoming with two living areas on the main floor. One area included the kitchen, with separate breakfast dining area, a great wood burning fireplace, well-stocked bookcases and very comfortable seating with two sofas several reading chairs and a couple of rockers all with large windows facing the water. The other area has more stocked bookcases, a dining area, reading chairs, a sofa and a comfortable desk (again with large windows and views of the water). Every room has wonderful and interesting art works which add peace and beauty to the rooms. The beautiful landscaped grounds contain many species of flowers, fruit trees and lots of birds feasting at the many bird feeders.
The kitchen has a gas stove top and is well-equipped for cooking and serving anything. It was chilly and rainy the first week and we made a huge pot of soup with homemade bread and pound cake using the pots, bread bowls and cake tins in the house. It even has a old fashioned cake saver AND a dishwasher.
Note: the weather went from cold and rainy to several days of 90 plus temps but the home is full of windows which cross ventilate in every room. The breeze from the water was great and kept us cool in the heat. We cannot wait to go back again!
Dear Mary and Ronnie,
Thank you both for this beautiful review, for taking the time for reflection and meaningful descriptions about your holiday time at our home. I am grateful that you found the Wellfleet house a good home away from home. We loved having you there and deeply appreciate the many acts of kindness and care that your presence provided.
Thank you so very much,
