My wife and I enjoyed our stay tremendously. We've been renting on the Cape for over 20 years; this house met our needs better than any other. The location is convenient to the town - it's a 10-15 minute walk away - but it's also very quiet. It's also well situated - you don't feel like the neighbors are on top of you. We rarely heard them. The deck in the photo looks out onto the top of a wooded area and you can barely see other houses through the trees.
Note the balcony off the master bedroom - a perfect place to watch the sunset and sip margaritas where mosquitos rarely venture. (They do come out in the evenings.) The open plan kitchen, LR, and DR made socializing very pleasant. The house gets very nice light and decent air circulation - not always the case in many homes on the Cape.
The private, upstairs MBR with en-suite bath and private terrace was a real treat - but your guests will also be entirely comfortable in the two BRs on the first level.
Wellfleet itself is a great town - big enough for a serviceable market, some good restaurants, galleries, shops, excellent fresh seafood (Mac's, Hatch's), but not so big that you're overwhelmed by traffic and crowds.
Sunset strolls on the pier and bay beaches (Duck Harbor) are heavenly. We're avid cyclists and rode everywhere. The direct access to the basement was perfect for nightly bike storage. The clean, open basement space was a great place to pump up the tires and make adjustments. We loaded the panniers inside each morning and headed out to the beaches or longer rides to Provincetown or Brewster. The house is exactly 5 miles to the end of the CCRT in South Wellfleet if you take Long Pond Road to Ocean View Drive. That ride alone is one of the most beautiful on the Cape. The ride to Provincetown along the bay is also outstanding. At the end of the long rides, it was always painful and yet fun to get up the super steep hill to the house.
Nancy is a wonderful owner, very pleasant and communicative. We can't wait to return.
Roger, So glad you enjoyed your stay! We would be happy to welcome you back next year. Best Regards, Nancy D
