Description

Description

In the woods of Wellfleet, this Cape Cod house was rescued from ruin in the 1930's. The house has been lovingly improved and is now a spacious home. A relaxing walk along a path through woods takes you to Herring Pond. Continuing on the sand road you pass Slough Pond and Horseleech Pond to arrive at the beach! The beach (just north of Newcomb's Hollow) is, we think, the best ocean beach in the lower 48. The lawn, the hammock, the locust trees are perfect for a lazy summer afternoon with easy access to salt water and fresh water swimming. The kitchen and adjacent dining room are superb for large gatherings and multiple cooks. The house is 1/2 mile from Route 6 and 2 miles from Wellfleet Center--and the excellent public library. It sits on 4 1/2 acres in the National Seashore with no immediate neighbors.

Four bedrooms -- two singles, one queen, and one double are on the second floor. The first floor study has a futon couch and can be comfortably used as a bedroom. This room is right next to the downstairs full bathroom. Outside, the original garage is now an private room with double bed and single bed. Perfect for a couple with a young child. The Herring River (actually a brook) flows past at the foot of the lawn.

Polite dogs are welcome. Internet access is via MiFi cell tower. The speed is fine for email and internet browsing. Streaming is not a good idea.

Wonderful!

We have stayed in several houses along Black Pond Road - searching for the perfect house. This is it. It's secluded, set back from the road in its own clearing, with large lawns and trees surrounding it on all sides. Two decks, on east and west sides of house for outdoor dining both morning and evening. A hammock and outdoor shower and a grill. A large kitchen with everything you need and open dining area let's the whole crowd hang out and cook and talk. Once we arrive, we never put on our shoes but to drive to town to shop for dinner. It's a short walk along sand roads to all the ponds that you want to swim in: Herring, Slough, Horseleech, Higgins, Gull and Round. A little further takes you along a path to the ocean - but away from the crowds. Easy access to miles of sand roads and single track trails through the hollows and hillocks of the seashore.

This is the house for people who love the Cape Cod National Seashore and want to feel like they are spending a week at their own family's house. Everyone grew up and moved away - but every year you go back and feel so lucky to be able to reconnect to the idyllic summers past.
