This is a family home built by my parents in 1986, and we have gone ourselves almost every year since then. We care about developing a personal relationship with our renters and we pride ourselves on having renters who return year after year.
What is special about this property?
It is quiet, surrounded by trees, with a lovely view of the marsh. The sunset light on the marsh is fantastic, and dinners on the deck or screened porch overlooking the marsh are a daily highlight. The walk to the sandy beach on Wellfleet bay is short and beautiful, and the beach is perfect for kids, with a tidal stream that is always changing and filled with tiny fish. It is a short drive to Wellfleet and the ocean side beaches, and there is wonderful biking for all levels, including short rides directly from the house. It is a short drive to several freshwater ponds for swimming, including some tiny scenic ponds that few know about as well as some that are filled with playing children. You can also take a beautiful walk along the edge of the marsh, turning right at the bottom of the driveway and following the marsh to the beach, along the beach to Omaha Road, and back to the house. Turtles frequent the road (drive carefully!) and great blue herons and many other birds frequent the marsh. At high tide you can drop a kayak or canoe into the marsh right by the house.
What is special about your town?
Of course we are partial but Wellfleet is in our view the best part of the Cape. You can find secluded beaches and ponds or seek out a crowd for music, the local film festival, the Fourth of July Parade, the October Oyster festival, and other town events. Wellfleet has a picturesque Main Street and harbor area, dotted with galleries. The town has a great skate park and playground, tennis courts, and a basketball court. Pickup soccer games in town include all ages and genders. Other attractions include Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater, the drive in theater, PJs clam shack, Hatch's Fish Market, Moby Dick's seafood restaurant, short drives to Provincetown and its walking and bike trails through dunes, Winslow's Tavern, and the world-class PB Boulangerie French bakery. Wellfleet harbor is great for sailing, kayaking, and fishing. Wellfleet is a truly special place with something for everyone: young children, teens, young couples, and retirees. We've been through several of those stages there ourselves and the more time we spend there the more we appreciate how special it is.
