Description

Welcome to our home, our House in the Trees!

We are re-opening our home in 2021. Sadly, due to Covid we did not get there this year and had to cancel all our renters. But, we are opening again in 2021 and remain committed to using non-toxic but effective cleaning services.

Our House in the Trees is on Gull Pond Road on the Ocean side of Route 6, around 2 miles from Newcomb Hollow, Cahoon Hollow Beaches, Gull Pond Long Pond, downtown Wellfleet and the Pier. Walk to Moby Dicks!

This is a bright, airy and spacious home with an “open beam” architecture made with reclaimed wood from an old Connecticut school house. The open floor plan has a cathedral ceiling in the Great Room (living room and dining room) with wrap around windows. The house is on a hill on its own private, paved drive, well away from the street. Surrounded by trees, it is VERY private. There are several sky lights throughout the house so you can star and moon gaze or just watch the clouds drift by. Sunsets through the trees viewed from living room and back deck are just beautiful.

We contract with a GREEN mosquito abatement service which means being outside on the decks or shower is virtually bug free.

The house has 4 bedrooms, (two bedrooms per floor) and a full bath on each bedroom level. There is an entertainment room (TV/Games) and an office area, both of which overlook the living room and dining room.

Each floor of the house is reached by a short set of stairs, only 6 steps, making it easy to get up and down. The 4 levels offer privacy and space - great for a family with kids or two or three couples or two families! (Two queen beds, one full, and two twins). Each bedroom has good closet space, lots of hangers and shelving.

The two upstairs bedrooms each have a window air conditioner. There are plenty of powerful fans.

There are two decks, one on each side of the house (do you want sun or shade?) and an outside shower off one of the front deck. A barbecue and a picnic table are on the other deck.

We supply paper towels, napkins, toilet paper and all basic spices

There is a washer and dryer in the basement, and the kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, lobster pot, etc. Cable TV and high speed Internet are also provided: 140 channels including HBO.

New driveway was installed Spring of 2020.

Please feel free to contact us with questions about our House in the Trees. If you are new to the Cape, we will also be happy to provide information about the area.

Newcomb Hollow Beach, Gull Pond, Long Pond and downtown Wellfleet all within 2 miles.

    Repeat Wellfleet Retreat

    This was our second stay and each year is better than the last! With a very large living room and 2 spacious decks, there is definitely room to spread out or gather together for meals and games galore! The house and roomy outdoor shower are always clean and tidy, airy and fresh! Located in Wellfleet, there are numerous restaurants to enjoy but the house is expertly equipped with everything you need to prepare lunches and dinners, from grilling to lobster! My favorite is the additional shed which houses boogie boards, kick boards, beach chairs, umbrellas and even floats for the ponds and bayside beaches! Couldn't be better! show more show less

    Wonderful week on Gull Pond Road

    Rebecca's house is extremely cozy and comfortable, with a very well equipped kitchen. The decks are surrounded by trees and are peaceful throughout the day. The living room has comfy furniture and the the house has excellent natural light. We really appreciated the air conditioning units for sleeping, otherwise the main living area has a good cross breeze. We hope to come back and stay another time!

    Love at first sight

    We keep coming back to this beautiful house year after year. If my memory does not fail me, the first year I rented it was six years ago and since then it has been love at first sight.

    We love the location near the ponds and our favorite beach (Beach Comber). The house is surrounded by trees and it's a pleasure to sit outdoors in the front or back decks to enjoy meals or drinks after a day at the beach or pond.

    I love the architectural design of the house with its high ceiling and spacious living room, kitchen and dining area. A great place to spend a week with our dear family members in the most likable best summer place we know.

    Couldn't Be Better!

    A private sanctuary away from it all and yet close to everything that matters. Great open spaces, two decks surrounded by trees and a kitchen well-equipped with all the necessaries and much more. Even with two adults and four adult-sized kids the house never felt even remotely crowded and yet when we gathered to play a game it was cozy as can be. We loved it and are already planning our next visit.

    Terrific Place

    This is a wonderful place with everything we could need. The house has an open floor plan and yet it manages to provide all kinds of nooks and separate spaces—very well designed. It is modern and rustic. We were two families, for a total of seven (4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 kid) and everyone had the right amount of space. The extra 'mezzanine' area with TV (and many games) and study was a nice plus! Most of all I love how when you sit in the living room, you are surrounded by treetops. Rebecca is also very generous with supplies—paper towels, napkins, condiments. Everything feels thoughtfully organized and used by a family. An outdoor shower that is both hot and cold much appreciated. If you like using Gull Pond and Newcomb Hollow Beach it's a perfect location—we biked there. show more show less

    Thank you Marina! It gives me incomparable pleasure to know that our home truly contributes to a family"s vacation! It sounds like the place was a really good fit for you. We also LOVE all the windows and skylights that let you experience the trees and sky. That living room is a wonderful place to hang in any weather or time of day! I am so glad you enjoyed it. Glad to hear about the biking! Best wishes ~. Rebecca

    Wellfleet Retreat

    Extremely well equipped home with plenty of room. Very quiet location. Very good owner to deal with. There are some steps to walk up and parking is limited to three cars but the owner makes that very clear. No surprises The home has a very relaxing vibe to it.

    We also think our place has a "relaxing vibe"! So glad it felt that way to you because that"s what it"s all about ~. I REALLY hope that contributes in a positive way to each guests vacation! (More than just a place to sleep and shower... cause that was often our experience as renters). Best wishes... Rebecca

    Second time twice as nice!

    As expected, the house was comfortable. well stocked and in a great location. We love sitting on the deck eating the best seafood which we purchased in town. The WiFi worked fine and there was plenty of room for everyone.

    Great stay!

    We would highly recommend this rental! We have visited Cape Cod 5 times and this home was certainly one of the nicest and cleanest. They really thought of everything, from things to bring to the beach, to a very well appointed kitchen. The only thing we needed to provide were linen and towels, which frankly I prefer. the house is very cool , on several levels with lots of art and knick knacks to admire. There was lots of space for my husband and I and our 3 kids to spend time together and there was also lots of space if we needed privacy. I have to say the furniture was also very comfortable- we’ve stayed at places where the beds are uncomfortable or the sofas are kinda old, but everything here was really well thought out, clean and comfortable. And of course the best part was the outdoor shower!! And our hosts were easy to contact if there were any issues. We would absolutely stay here again. show more show less

    Welcome to our home, our House in the Trees!

    We recently were lucky enough to get this house (Thanksgiving 2015!) Having this home is a dream come true for me (Rebecca). I grew up on the East Coast and any summer that our family could save the money to do it, we would camp or rent a small cottage on the Cape, specifically, Wellfleet. Those summer weeks were magical! If you have never spent time on the Outer Cape before, you are in for a real treat. Because we have been renters ourselves, we are making sure our home has everything anyone would need to have a great experience.

    One of the great things about this house is that it has separate areas so kids and adults can have some dedicated space. We are also working on a ''library''. You are free to take a book with you if you haven't finished it prior to leaving... just make sure to leave another book in its place, OK?

    If it rains, the mahogany decks gleam the most beautiful color and all the windows keep you from feeling closed in. It is actually kinda wonderful. (but we will send ''no rain'' wishes for you cause we know you probably want to be outside!)






    What is special about this property?
    What we love (my husband, Skip and I) about this house is the location and the way the house is built. It is so quick and easy to go from bay beach to ocean beach to ponds to town (as in 5 minutes!) It is what is called Open Beam architecture and it is all the exposed wood that we love. It is made from reclaimed wood from an old Connecticut schoolhouse. The cathedral ceilings and skylights make it spacious and airy. We love sitting on the decks with a morning coffee or an afternoon drink and just looking at the trees. Because of all the trees it has a very private feeling… as if you are alone on the top of a hill with no one around (even through there are houses close by.

    One of the aspects of the Cape that I love are the long, sandy driveways into the woods to reach private residences. We have found that those are romantic and beautiful to look at and to drive on from time to time but a real pain to negotiate every day so we appreciate that we have our own paved and private drive right off of Gull Pond Rd. It is less than 5 minutes to Route 6, the main artery for the Outer Cape.

    We are just a couple of minutes from either Newcomb Hollow or Calhoun Hollow beach or Long Pond or Great Pond and you can walk to Gull Pond. Downtown Wellfleet and the pier are also easy access. Sunset Point is only a few minutes away. It is centrally located between Orleans and Provincetown.






    What is special about your town?
    If you decide to stay in our home, and have never been in the area before we will be happy to provide you with all sorts of information about the area.

    Best wishes,
    Rebecca & Skip
