Wellfleet is my happy place, made even happier this season with the discovery of this sweet home on Wigwam Street in South Wellfleet. First of all, the Sunday to Sunday rental was so much better than Saturday to Saturday. We had no trouble getting on/off Cape. In fact, we got there well before check-in, so we hit the Flea Market and got a few treasures.
Upon arrival, the house was immaculate throughout, and with the front and back windows all open, there was a delicious, steady breeze which lasted all week. We rarely even used the fans; in fact, in the evenings, I had to close some windows. The house is stocked with all you need for your week at the Cape including everything from boogie boards to beach chairs. If you like to cook or bake, the kitchen contains every type of pot, pan and utensil you could possibly need, and since we were there toward the end of the season, I think we probably benefitted from past renters who left lots of spices, oils and other non-perishable items.
My favorite place was the comfy Andirondack chairs on the front porch where I sat each morning with my coffee and fresh goody from The Blue Willow Bakery (less than 5 min. away) and watched the tide come in on the marsh across the street. I had never actually seen that in action, and it gave me a greater appreciation for the rythym of the day. The street was quiet and the back yard was filled with all kinds of herbs and wildflowers. I scored on one day when one ripe fig materialized among all of the green ones on the most robust fig tree I've ever seen, and had we have been one week later, we could have picked grapes right off the vine.
The location was perfect for us; we just crossed over Rt. 6 to the road that led to our favorite beach at Maguire's Landing, or we could just continue down the road to any of the other beaches all in row. If we can make it back next August, we would most definitely stay here again.
