Description

Description

IMPT.......This cottage is isolated and private............Bike the adjacent Rail Trail from Sea Spirit cottage to best ocean beaches -- Marconi and LeCount. Located in a rural section of South Wellfleet, adjacent to CCNS, the cottage is very convenient to biking and walking trails as well as popular restaurants. This truly charming little vacation home (it's been called the prettiest cottage in town) is sited alone among tall pine trees in a large and exclusive space... Private entrance and parking contribute to the convenience and exclusivity of an Olde Cape cottage, vintage in style, updated with taste and care. ,
Designed expressly for couples, Sea Spirit offers space and comfort with a large and light-filled bedroom.

A rear deck affords complete seclusion at the tip of Blackfish Creek. The fresh, attractive decor, vaulted ceilings, and abundance of windows create a light, airy, and colorful interior. Ceiling fans add to cooling comfort and provide white noise which ensures quiet within. Thoughtfully furnished with every need in mind, the cottage features WiFi, flat screen TV and extensive available channels.

Love the outdoors?...BBQ, dine, doze & shower in complete privacy under the pines. From dawn to dusk (with either fresh pastries from the walk-to Boulangerie or a grilled steak and a bottle of wine at sunset), the deck will delight with its view of the Creek, towering trees and occasional wildlife.
This sweet little home-away clearly rivals expensive B&Bs in quality and ambiance but far surpasses them in advantages and value. . Privacy and comfort are assured as guest satisfaction and pleasure are paramount. Consistently Rates 5 Stars, this property is 100% owner managed, maintained and accountable.
Consideration will be extended for rentals of two weeks or more which will merit a discount on an already exceptional value.
Reviews by over 60 guests (many of which on a former website) are unanimous in praise of Sea Spirits' appearance, quality, location, hospitality and convenience.

    Early Fall in Welfleet

    Perfect home base for an outer Cape vacation. The owners live on site and you can tell they put a lot of effort into creating a clean, quiet retreat. The house is well maintained with a nice view of the tidal pond off the back deck while you grill your dinner in the back yard. Bike trail is right down the road for a ride or a nice walk. Bill and Valerie are great hosts, would recommend for a Cape getaway.

    A lovely week at Sea Spirit

    Sea Spirit was just the right place for our return to the Cape. The cottage is lovely, just the ideal size for a couple. The decor is classic Cape Cod, inside and out, and the cottage is nestled in a picturesque stand of pines, complete with hammock, a lovely deck, and a barbecue. The bed was very comfortable with windows ideally suited to catch the night breezes. I haven't slept as well in a long, long time.
    Our hosts, Valerie and Bill, were extremely hospitable and gracious, and they were always available for restaurant recommendations and Cape Cod lore, if needed. That said, they were faultlessly respectful of our privacy.
    For us, Sea Spirit was ideally located, roughly halfway between Orleans and Provincetown, a stretch that encompasses most of our favorite places on the Cape. A variety of great beaches, both ocean and bay, are nearby, as are a number of good restaurants and other attractions, including the Rail Trail.
    All in all, Sea Spirit offers a lovely spot in which to unwind and spend a relaxing vacation. We'd definitely recommend it to friends!

    Convenient and Cute

    We really enjoyed our stay in the Sea Spirit cottage. Valerie and Bill were very friendly and helpful when it came to pointing us in the right direction or retrieving an extra blanket for us. We especially loved the back porch and the outdoor shower. The location is also great. We loved being able to get on the bike trail, which is about 200 feet away, and biking to Marconi to hike or Blue Willow to grab some excellent pastries. We hope to return someday soon!

    Just What I Needed

    I spent a week at this perfect little cottage and enjoyed every minute. The hosts were knowledgeable about the Cape and helped me to do my trip without a car, biking to beaches and ponds and also to restaurants in both Wellfleet and Eastham. It was great to come home to an outdoor shower and everything you need for grilling -- and even baking! I hope to come back soon.

    Amazing cottage

    My girlfriend and I stayed at this cottage for a week. A privileged place. Marconi Beach, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful beaches, is 10 minutes by bike. a wonderful bike trail is literally 1 block from the cottage. The house is perfect for a couple, comfortable, outdoor shower so cozy. the owners of the property are very communicative and ready for any information and whatever the guests need. I recommend this paradise for anyone who wants to rest and enjoy Cape Cod. Can't wait to be able to go back there. thank you very much, Mrs. Valerie and Mr. Bill, you two are wonderful!

    I am from Brazil!
    Also I like to leave a message in Portuques:

    Minha namorada e eu ficamos neste chalé por uma semana. Um lugar privilegiado. A praia de Marconi, na minha opinião, uma das praias mais bonitas, fica a 10 minutos de bicicleta. uma trilha de bicicleta maravilhosa fica literalmente a 1 quarteirão da casa de campo. A casa é perfeita para um casal, confortável, ducha ao ar livre. os donos do imóvel são exatamente atenciosos e prontos para qualquer informação e o que os hóspedes precisarem. Recomendo esse paraíso para quem quer descansar e curtir Cape Cod. Mal posso esperar para poder voltar lá. muito obrigado, Sra. Valerie e Sr. Bill, vocês dois são maravilhosos!

    PERFECT LITTLE COTTAGE

    My mom and I decided to do a girl's trip and found this cottage to be perfect for us. The cottage was the perfect amount of space for two people and had all of the amenities you need while on vacation. Valerie and Bill were so accommodating to all of our needs and were extremely helpful and kind. They provided some amazing recommendations. The cottage is a short distance to the beach. Valerie and Bill were kind enough to lend us their bikes for the rail trail which is located right behind the cottage. We loved Wellfleet and all of the oysters. Could not recommend enough!!! show more show less

    The Spot to Return To Over & Over

    It had been 21 years since my husband and I took a vacation and we decided to go back to Sea Spirit. Having stayed here in July 2000 and July 2001, we knew how much we LOVED it then and were hoping to recapture the magic. It was the perfect choice. This cottage is exactly what you see in the photos; it's clean, colorful, and comfortable. It's also private. Val and Bill put a lot of care and thought into their property and it makes them happy when their guests are happy. They set everything in place for whoever stays at Sea Spirit to have a meaningful and special Cape experience. In addition, Val and Bill are thoughtful storytellers, historians, and tour guides. We highly recommend spending time here. We're hoping for a return trip soon! show more show less

    Storybook Cotttage

    Sea Spirit is the kind of cottage you see in picture books, with window boxes overflowing with lush plants. The cottage is small but very cozy and has everything you need for a comfortable stay -- outdoor grill, deck and the best part, an outdoor shower! The location is perfect with a short drive to almost all beaches and ponds. And it's a short walking distance along the trail behind the house to the French bakery, PB Boulangerie -- our favorite (non-seafood) restaurant. You'd think you were in Paris! Valerie and Jim are the perfect hosts who want to make sure you have everything you need for the perfect vacation. They are warm and welcoming and I feel like I've known them my whole life! And that was the best part of our stay. show more show less

    Spirit of the Sea, with all the charm of Cape Cod

    We spent a week in August in Val's cottage. I have lived in Ct, and been to The Cape a few times before, but my girlfriend had never been to New England. We loved everything about the Sea Spirit from the moment we walked through the trees.

    All of the pictures and descriptions in this listing are 100% accurate. The price was more than fair for the privacy, convenience, location, and advice of Val and Bill. (They will answer questions and give recommendations if you ask.) Expect Val to check in with you about a day into your stay to make sure everything about the cottage meets expectations.

    We didn't expect the Sea Spirit to be a destination on our vacation, but it ended up like one at the end of the day. We looked forward to coming home each evening just as much as we looked forward to visiting the beaches and towns, and the activities planned for the day. We spent most nights with dinner on the deck, before enjoying the breeze flowing through the cottage as we turned in.

    If we can vacation again in Cape Cod, we will definitely be contacting Val first!

    The Best Cape Cottage

    Val's cottage is the best! I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week and we didn't want to leave, it's absolutely perfect. The location is incredible, not only is it close to all the shops and restaurants we love on the Cape, but it's right on the bike trail and super close to both Marconi and Lecount beaches. It's a fairly easy 2-mile bike ride to the beach, we had such a fun time going there everyday.

    The cottage itself is adorable, perfect for two people. The bed is comfortable, the deck is amazing, and the outdoor shower was our favorite after a day at the beach! Val is an incredible host and offers the best tips and tricks for what to do and where to go.

    I highly recommend staying in this adorable cottage!

    As a former tour director and travel writer, I have considerable knowledge and experience regarding the travel industry. Over 20 years in managing lengthy tours and dealing with over 40 guests each time have taught me to interact fairly and frankly with vacationers and even to surpass expectations. In this capacity I have stayed at hundreds of properties and know what makes the best of them stand out. Consequently, Sea Spirit is designed to meet the highest standards.....cleanliness, fresh decor, comfortable bedding, all appliances in good working order as well as some thoughtful ''extras''..

    We live on the property some distance from the cottage and are always available for help or consultation. However, we will respect your privacy. Over the years, we have 50 plus 5star written reviews (some of which are shown on a former website,)


    What is special about this property?
    Sea Spirit is the quintessential Cape Cod cottage....quaint,colorful and surrounded by gardens and pines. The area is extremely private and secluded from the deck which overlooks the tip of Blackfish Creek and woods. The bike path is one minute away and the beautiful LeCount ocean beach can be accessed by bicycle in 5 minutes. The National Seashore with its walking trails and iconic White Cedar Swamp is nearly next door. Several restaurants are in walking distance incldg.the celebrated P.B. Boulangerie.
    Most importantly it is a singular, unique cottage not crowded into a colony.

    What is special about your town?
    Like the cottage itself, Wellfleet is the quintessential Cape Cod town, still retaining its charm of yesteryear. The town has a working harbor, charming quaint homes, a cultural center, shops and exquisite views. Most importantly, Wellfleet can boast of a variety of beaches, freshwater ponds, bay and ocean. Only those few towns like ours, have open ocean. Once a traveler stays in Wellfleet, no other town can compare.
