Description

Description

Bike the adjacent Rail Trail from Sea Spirit cottage, which is sited between two ocean beaches -- Marconi and LeCount. Sea Spirit is located in a rural and historical section of South Wellfleet and is set back quite a distance from the road, (which cannot be seen from the property) and is nestled by itself among tall pine trees in a large and exclusive space. Traffic noise is barely audible from within and many guests have commented on a great night's sleep.

A rear deck affords complete seclusion at the tip of Blackfish Creek. The fresh, tasteful decor, vaulted ceilings, and abundance of windows create a light, airy, and colorful interior. Thoughtfully furnished with every need in mind, the cottage features WiFi, flat screen TV, DVD, CD radio.

Love the outdoors?...BBQ, dine, doze & shower in privacy under the pines in the secluded and scenic back yard.

ADJACENT TO CC RAIL TRAIL & NAT'L SEASHORE, the cottage is ideal for biking and hiking to nearby beaches & lovely walking trails, yet easily accessible to the celebrated wonders of Wellfleet This sweet little home-away clearly rivals expensive B&Bs in quality and ambiance but far surpasses them in advantages and value. No additional fees added to rate. 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.

Reviews by over 40 guests (many of which on a former website) are unanimous in praise of Sea Spirits' appearance, quality, location, hospitality and convenience.

Wonderful stay!

My husband and I had such a wonderful vacation visiting Wellfleet and staying at the Sea Spirit Cottage! The cottage is very clean, private and beautifully furnished. The kitchen and cupboards are stocked with everything you could possibly want or need for a very comfortable stay. The beautiful and thoughtful touches all throughout the cottage are very special and allow this property to really stand apart from others. It's not just a generic rental cottage for these owners. They really went above and beyond to create a warm and welcoming environment, and it shows! Also, the shower in the cottage has best water pressure you could ever ask for, and the bed was so comfortable. Both allowed for the perfect endings and beginnings to each new day!

Valerie and Bill (owners) live in their own separate home on the property, close by but not too close by any means! They were such wonderful hosts available for anything, extremely kind, warm, welcoming and were available anytime you need them or had a question, but they were also very respectful or your privacy and in no way intruded on that privacy in anyway. We could not have asked for more!!!

Also, for anybody looking at this rental who may be concerned about its close proximity to Rte 6, all I can say is it didn't bother us in the least, and we had the windows open all week! The cottage is set back so you are certainly not looking directly at Rte 6 out the windows, and there are large bushes in the front of the property which allow for great privacy. We so loved our stay at the Sea Spirit cottage. It was a magical week all around and we can't wait for a return visit!

Owner Response:

This review underscores the vital importance of communication between owners and renters BEFORE payment is received which is now only possible with WNAV and not other rental sites. We have communicated with Pam often and long before her vacation which naturally resulted in a perfect fit. Not only did Pam and Tom love and appreciate Sea Spirit, but we were equally delighted with them and their stay. Guests like these are what makes a cottage rental a joy and great satisfaction. Thank you so much, Pam and Tom.........we already miss you and look forward to your return.show moreshow less

Sea Spirits Lifts the Spirit

We had a lovely stay at Sea Spirits Cottage. Valerie provided us with all the information we could possibly need regarding the bike trail, beaches, and restaurants in the area. She was clear about being available to answer any questions we might have, but also respecting our privacy. We loved having the option of swimming in the ocean, the bay, or the ponds. The cottage has a deck that was perfect for dinners. Also, the kitchen was extremely well equipped.

Wonderful cottage and location!

Valerie and her husband were the best hosts and provided a most lovely accommodation! Their home is surrounded by trees and conveniently located in the heart of it all; steps from the rail trail for walking or biking, the ocean & beaches, kettle ponds for swimming, hiking trails, a 5 minute drive to the village of Wellfleet, 25 minutes to Provincetown, and close to a number of wonderful breakfast, lunch and dinner places. The cottage was private, comfortable, and pleasing. The hammock was a perfect spot for reading and napping. Valerie made us feel very comfortable and welcome. They truly provided a wonderful accommodation for our first visit to the Cape. show more show less

Great location and a cute cottage

This was the perfect location for our few days on the Cape. The cottage is just as described and lovely inside and out. Off road parking and very private. We would consider staying again. One more thing...great water pressure in the shower.

Many thanks to these ideal guests. Although we finally had a bit rain, this couple had a most fulfilling trip, reading, relaxing,hiking, touring and enjoying the Cape in autumn. We loved their attitude......it is tenants like Siri and Ernie which make "cottage keeping" such a personal pleasure.

Peaceful, relaxing

Enjoyed being close to bike trail, also walk through the woods to Marconi Beach. Cottage clean and comfortable with many extra personal touches like fresh flowers in vases. Owners helpful with area information. We stayed for a week, highly recommend.

Un lugar para disfrutar

Mi hijo y yo nos quedamos en la cabaña de Valerie y John en Wellfleet por una semana y la pasamos de primera. El lugar es privado, con una vista bonita pero muy bien situado cerca de restaurantes y playas. Valerie conoce mucho todo el area del Cape y nos dio muy buenas sugerencias de lugares para visitar. La casita esta decorada muy al estilo de Cape Cod y tiene todas las comodidades adentro y afuera. Se puede cocinar adentro o en el BBQ de gas,y hay mesas en la terraza y en el patio para comer. Tambien hay una ducha afuera. Valerie habla español y es una anfitriona muy amable y hospitalaria. Nos encanta recomendar esta casita que es ideal para una pareja.

A place to enjoy
My son and I stayed at the cabin of Valerie and John in Wellfleet for a week and had a great time. The place is private, with a beautiful view. It is conveniently located near restaurants and beaches. Valerie knows much about the area of the Cape and gave us very good suggestions of places to visit. The house is decorated in the style of Cape Cod and it has all the amenities inside and out. You can cook inside or on the gas BBQ, and there are tables on the terrace and in the courtyard to eat. Also there is a shower outside. Valerie speaks Spanish and is a very friendly and hospitable hostess. We are delighted to recommend this cottage which is ideal for a couple.

Could not have picked a better place!

We loved our stay at the Sea Spirit cottage!

First of all, the listing is extremely accurate and thorough, and the cottage was everything we expected and more. It has everything you need for your stay on the Cape. The cottage was the perfect size for me and my husband, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Probably the best sleep I have ever had!

The cottage was clean and well-maintained and decor was very on theme for a cottage on the Cape. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook (even a lobster pot to cook lobster)! The outdoor shower was a great extra, very happy to have that after a day at the beach or a bike ride on the Rail Trail (which is 1 minute from the cottage).

We contacted Val through a vacation rental site, she got back to us straight away and provided us extra details about the Cape and the property and made our reservation. Val and Bill were amazing hosts, and we are so lucky to have met them and stayed at their cottage (thank you so much for everything, you really went above and beyond to make our stay great)!

The location is awesome! We were a short, short drive to the beaches and ponds (where we spent most days) and also a really great location for traveling other towns (which we did most evenings).

We have already recommended this cottage to a friend! And we can't wait to come back and enjoy another beautiful week in Wellfleet at the Sea Spirit cottage.

Perfect week in Wellfleet! :)

Valerie and John were superb hosts! My girlfriend, my daughter and I had a perfect week in this beautiful, charming cottage! The cottage is close (5 min on bicycle) from Lecount Hollow Beach, which is very beautiful! We had everything we needed: complete, clean kitchen, grill, exterior shower (very useful when coming back from beach). The bedroom was spacious enough to have a small bed for our daughter in the bedroom beside ours without being encumbered. We really enjoyed everything in this place. Hope to come back next year!

My partner and I stayed at the Sea Spirit for a week to enjoy a laid back and low key week together after getting married. We are both very pleased with our decision to stay at the Sea Spirit. First and foremost, the owners Valerie and Bill made us feel welcomed and comfortable from the moment we arrived. They are genuinely nice people that take an interest in being good hosts which came through in many ways. For instance, Valerie provided us with detailed maps and instructions on different things we may want to do, tailored to our interests. We took her suggestions on many things and enjoyed it all. All the while, we didn't feel intruded upon or overburdened by the owners, they are available if needed, otherwise they made our privacy and seclusion a priority. For us, this property was a choice above others because it is suitable for a couple, very well maintained, and visually pleasing in the interior design and outdoor gardens. Also, we loved being a short bike ride to the ocean beaches. We highly recommend the Sea Spirit! show more show less

Valerie and John were superb hosts. Having worked in the travel industry previously there is nothing Valerie doesn’t know about Wellfleet and if she doesn’t know ask and she will take great delight in researching this for you. The cottage was cute, lovely and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay; thank you.

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 30 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.
