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 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 atypical of many other cottages.

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.

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

Meg and Charlie, What a charming and informative review. We are especially glad that you enjoyed your stay with us in that one of our regular guests recommended Sea Spirit and Wellfleet and that all was up to your expectations and Tecia's praise. It is always our goal to please our guests, and they in turn give us much pleasure, Thanks for sharing a birthday with us.

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!

Value, Location, Hospitality

I spent the last week of June at Sea Spirit and I've stayed here 4 or 5 times over the years. It is the perfect place to recharge. Set in the backyard of the home of a very gracious and hospitable couple, Sea Spirit provides a balance of privacy and community. There is a large bedroom with comfortable queen, a cozy living/dining room, a kitchen stocked with essentials with a private deck in back. You can even sit there naked if you wish - and dry off after you enjoy your secluded outdoor shower.

The Cape Rail Trail is literally in the backyard. The center of Wellfleet is 5 mins away and Ptown 20 mins. If there is anything you forgot or need, Valerie and Bill will help and always have excellent suggestions for restaurants, local haunts, shopping bargains.

You would be hard pressed to find warmer or more gracious hosts than Valerie and Bill. All-in-all Sea Spirit is a great value in a most convenient location where you will experience New England hospitality at its finest.

Great Fall Getaway!


We spent a week at Val and Bill's cottage early October 2020, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

The place is small but perfectly suited for a couple to stay there.
It's a charming cottage just off Route 6 in South Wellfleet and it's separated from the road by enough space with trees that highway noise is not overwhelming, although it is still evident.
It's very conveniently located for forays up in the P'Town direction or back towards Orleans and the rest of the Cape, and just 5 minutes from the Town Pier.

The decor is modest yet charming; the bedroom mostly taken up by its large and comfortable bed. It was very chilly weather during our trip, but the down comforter we brought was more than equal to the temperature.

The living room and dining are small but adequate, the kitchen equipped for light cooking.
There is cable TV and WiFi, both worked well.

Outside, there's a patio and a grill, and access to the Bicycle Rail Trail only a few yards away.
We walked and/or ran on the bike trail nearly everyday.

A highlight of our stay was Val and Bill's hospitality.
They are gracious, kind, lovely people.

We felt as though we were staying with old friends, and would go back again for our next trip to Wellfleet.

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.

We and our cleaners were delighted to find it so tidy. We look forward to your next visit and thank you again for your outstanding review.

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.
