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 is sited alone among tall pine trees in a large and exclusive space... Private entrance and parking contribute to the convenience and exclusivity of and 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 atypical of many other cottages. (600 sq. feet total, excluding deck)

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.

Perfect Getaway!

Valerie's place was incredible. The perfect little getaway for my wife and I. The cottage is so cozy and on a beautiful property. Valerie and Bill were very kind hosts giving us all the insider tips needed to make our stay in Wellfleet wonderful. We loved eating meals out on the back porch and enjoying the peace and quiet, riding bikes Valerie lent us on the bike path with an entrance right next to the property, and of course spending time at one of the several beaches within a couple minutes of the cottage. The space is exactly what we were looking for. Our only regret was not spending more time with Valerie and Bill as we had such a lovely conversation as we were checking out that we didn't want to leave.

If you're looking for a couple's getaway, look no further! We're so glad we found Sea Spirit and hope to return soon. Thank you, Valerie!!

Lovely week on the Cape

Thank you Valerie and Bill for enabling us to get away from our quarantined life for a week. The cottage was comfortable and beautifully decorated. It had all the things we needed for our week. The location was perfect...close to the rail trail which we used as a bicycle path during the day, and for walking (one of us more frequently than the other) at night. The proximity of the Boulangerie was a mixed blessing, especially when we discovered their half-priced sale during the half hour before they close. We enjoyed chatting with the two of you and appreciated your suggestions of things to do and see. show more show less

A dreamy cottage in the best town in all of Cape Cod

SEA SPIRIT was even better than I had expected after reading all the wonderful reviews and speaking to the incredibly nice owner, Valerie. The cottage is perfectly tucked behind a row of evergreens and has the look and feel a place can only have when loved so well by the owners. The exterior is quintessential Cape Cod and when one enters the cottage it only gets better. The interior is bright and spacious with vaulted ceilings and it is very nicely decorated, yet it's comfortable and not fussy. The combination of location, charm and hospitality makes this one of the sweetest places we have ever stayed and would be excellent value, even if it were priced higher. show more show less

Your Search for the Perfect Cottage Ends Here

Tiny, charming and perfectly decorated, Sea Spirit welcomed the two of us for the most relaxing week of vacation we've had in years. Not only is Wellfleet one of the most beautiful parts of the Cape with so many things to see and do, but it was also wonderful to just spend time on the deck of this quiet cottage among the shady white cedar trees. Val and Bill were the consummate hosts, they couldn't do enough for us. If you choose this cottage, say "yes" to the offer to tour their own 1790s historic Cape home.

With the Cape Cod Bike Trail only a minute's walk away, and the choice of lakes, kettle hole ponds, National Seashore beaches and warm Bay beaches to suit your particular taste, you'll be glad you chose this spot for your vacation. And one more thing: In these times of COVID-19, the Cape turned out to be more quiet and relaxing than it has been in the past 20 years, with minimal traffic and respectful vacationers, but with access to the vast majority of its restaurants, shops, and galleries.

Great cottage...Couldn't be Cuter!

This cottage is a great place to spend a vacation week. Solid, charming and beautifully decorated (fresh flowers greeted us!), it is convenient to everything. Not only is there a full bath, there is also an outdoor shower. We loved getting on the bike path, and the gracious owners were even kind enough to lend us bicycles! The walk through the White Cedar Swamp at the end of the day left us expecting a hobbit to jump out and surprise us! Just a few minutes to the Chocolate Cafe and great cappuccino. Minutes to Marconi Beach too! Highly recommended. show more show less

Great Stay

Really enjoyed the Cottage, the value can't e beat. Its location is great and central to the beaches (Short bike ride) directly next to the bike path and close to many restaurants. The cottage is as described, clean & comfortable. The owners are very helpful and have many great suggestions if you would like them. Highly recommend using LeCount Beach as it is a great beach and less crowded than Marconi.

Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. We especially appreciate your positive remarks re the cottage location since its position on the map can deter prospective guests. All who stay here do appreciate the convenience, privacy and beautiful setting. Route 6 is totally eclipsed by the many trees; and traffic noise is barely detectable within the cottage. it was our pleasure to be your vacation host and welcome you back any time.

Spring Has Joined Fall As The Best Times To Be On The Cape

My husband and I discovered Sea Spirit cottage eleven years ago when we were looking for a place to spend a long, late September/early October weekend in Wellfleet. We love the early Fall on the Cape; the air is crisp but not too cold, the Summer crowds are long gone, the beaches are tranquil, many good restaurants are still open and the whales haven't left Stellwagen Bank for the Caribbean yet! Owners Val and Bill, who lived on the property but were respectful of our privacy, were super hosts; very knowledgeable on everything Wellfleet and Cape Cod and were really helpful with their suggestions of fun things to see and do during our stay. Sea Spirit was enchanting, with the beautifully decorated interior and all of the lovely flowers trailing the front of the cottage, we were immediately smitten, so much so that we returned the following Fall for a whole week and have been returning every year since.

We were both finally retired last year and had moved from Connecticut to Maine, just a week after our stay on the Cape! After surviving our first, long Winter in Maine, we decided to call Val and Bill to see if we could spend a long Spring weekend in Sea Spirit when they opened the cottage for the season. They said they would be thrilled to have us and so we headed down to the Cape, this time in late May. It was wonderful, with everything pretty much the same there as it was in early Fall but now in reverse; with restaurants that were closed for the Winter just reopened for the season, the Summer craziness still a month away, the beaches etc. and yes, the whales were back from the Caribbean! (only the flowers on the cottage were missing, but Val was already working on them!) We were hooked once again and decided to add a long, late Spring weekend in Sea Spirit to our yearly Cape Cod vacation plans. Thanks very much, Val and Bill for welcoming us back again and again!

P.S. -Val has become a great friend and we keep in touch during the year via email to catch up...

Sarah & Paul.....spring and fall, you're always welcome. Experienced and discerning travelers like yourselves know what's best on the Cape after the crowds have left and golden beautiful days mellow in every way, be it the pastels of spring flowers or the tawny shades of autumn. The beaches are beautful and tranquility rules.

Wellfleet Gem of a Cottage Rental

My husband and I just spent our 4th year renting this cottage (we actually spent our honeymoon here). It is hard to come up with something new to say that others have not already commented on. This rental is truly a gem.

1. The pictures are exactly as you will find the cottage - very clean, everything you need is there, great value for the price in comparison to other area rentals.
2. It is the perfect size for a couple - the back deck is so nice for evening wine and cheese before heading to town for dinner; there is a grill if you want to stay in; outdoor shower; plenty of room to spread out - and even Wifi for those of us that sometimes need to answer emails on our vacation.
3. The owners, Valerie and Bill, are perfect hosts. Close by if needed but NEVER intrusive and very knowledgeable about the area. We look forward to stopping in to visit and catch up each year.
4. Perfectly located to all beaches, ponds, bike trail, restaurants
5. Yes, it does face Rte. 6 but it is back a ways and protected by tall trees. We slept with the windows open every night. The street noise has never been a problem for us.

I can't recommend this property enough. Do yourself a favor if you are unsure and speak with the owners. You will be so happy you did!

Exquisite Find For Your Wellfleet Vacation!

Hi, I just spent my third annual vacation in Wellfleet at Sea Spirit, and I keep coming back for so many reasons: the cottage is exactly as it appears in the photos, charming, clean and well-maintained, with lovely flowers in bloom every time I have been there; it is quiet and relaxing, surrounded as it is by mature, tall trees (which also keep it pleasantly temperate, without the need for an air conditioner); the tall, White Atlantic pines are located just behind the cottage -- a beautiful walk -- and so is the Cape Cod rail trail, 33 miles of paved, bicycle-only trail down the Cape; it is a short bike ride to my favorite kettle pond for swimming, Duck Pond; and the owners, Val and Bill, are lovely people who have become friends, yet are never intrusive during my stay. Thanks again for a lovely time. I can't think of a thing I would add to Sea Spirit -- it is perfect as it is! - Tina show more show less

The True Cape Cod Spirit

Sea Spirit was a wonderful home away from home, with everything you hope for in a Cape Cod cottage. Cozy, well appointed, lovingly decorated and maintained. Beautiful landscaping, trees and flowers, and even a nice outdoor shower (in addition to the indoor one). Thoughtful hosts, easy walking distance to restaurants, Close to ocean beaches and bike trail. Unique and peaceful. Thank you, Valerie and Bill!

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 promise complete privacy and never approach the cottage area when guests are in. 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.
