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.
