Description

Description

Across the street from a secluded stretch of Mayo beach, just grab your towel and go! With breathtaking views over Wellfleet Bay, Harbor and Great Island and the Bookstore Restaurant / Pier just up the street, this Cape Cod Beach Cottage is easily walkable to everything. Park your car and never get in it again. The cottage, named ''Dune's Edge'', was completely renovated in the Spring of 2019 and has just re-opened for summer rentals. Nestled into the edge of a natural sand dune, this sweet cottage has decks for outdoor lounging on three sides, an outside shower, and full modern amenities throughout, including a dishwasher and air-conditioning.

Originally built on the site of historic Chequessett Inn as part of a 14 cottage-colony called ''Packet Port'' in the 1940s, this historic cottage has been lovingly renovated and decorated to give the unique feel of being inside a ship. The exposed rafters, high ceilings and creative features, which celebrate the history of this part of Wellfleet, combine with modern luxury and tasteful decor to offer a space perfect for a relaxed beach vacation.

Go back in time while enjoying all the modern amenities.

''Dune's Edge Cottage'' has 2 bedrooms (1 queen bed, 1 bunk with double and single) as well as an optional third bedroom space with a high-quality, comfortable single cot bed for an additional person. Perfect for a family, two couples or friends sharing, this space-efficient rental has a delightful open kitchen and living area as well as an space that is easily converted into a formal dining, sleeping or office area. The owner is adamant about a fully appointed kitchen. You will have no issue cooking and hosting for 6 to 8 people, comfortably. Having both an indoor and outdoor shower make it quick and easy for everyone to clean off from the beach and get ready to walk to the pier, into town or enjoy a play at the theatre.

Views from the living area and both bedrooms look out onto Wellfleet bay and allow you to observe Wellfleet's famously extreme tides. High tide allows for safe swimming and observing the boats entering and leaving the harbor, while low tide opens to reveal the oyster farms where Wellfleet's world-renowned oysters are harvested.

This rental is only footsteps from Mayo beach. You can walk to the harbor area with its many restaurants - the Bookstore Restaurant, Ceraldi, The Pearl, Mac's Shack and Mac's Seafood & fresh fish market. There is a playground with a kids summer recreation program a 5 minute walk away on Baker's Field, where summer concerts and other events are held. The Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theatre is also on a short walk away. You can stroll to Wellfleet's many galleries, Uncle Tim's Bridge, Wellfleet's yoga studio Quiet Mind and Wellfleet's town center with more restaurants and galleries is just a short drive or fifteen minute walk along the water away.

You'll fall in love with this cheerful, comfortable, well appointed beach cottage above Wellfleet Harbor. Susannah & Russell are exceptionally accommodating hosts. Our stay was magical because of their caring & their obvious attention to detail. The location of Dune's Edge cottage was fabulous (close to restaurants, shops, & bay beach, but surrounded by nature on a private lane). And the views from the decks & windows... Amazing!!! We'll never forget the smiles & happy hours we shared in this dreamy nest! show more show less

My family and I had an exceptional stay at this stunning and peaceful beach house. We could not have been happier with the location: within walking distance to the beach and several fun and tasty spots like the Bookstore Restaurant and Bomb Shelter bar as well as a cool gallery called the Frying Pan. We were also close to the marina where we chartered a sunset cruise and experienced an incredible sunset! This beach cottage was bright, cozy, clean and super comfortable, with tasteful decor throughout. We loved the decks, which we made use of morning and night and we enjoyed the extreme peace of the surroundings. I loved being able to sit out on the deck outside my bedroom during the evenings, listen to the waves crash and stare up at the stars we so rarely get to see in NY! The people and surroundings of Wellfleet were incredible, and we could not have picked a more perfect spot to stay while experiencing this wonderful place. show more show less

It was an absolute delight to stay at Dune's Edge Beach House. The house is lovely and the view is beyond great! The well-equipped kitchen, light and airy living space, and very nice decks and outside shower made us feel right at home. Susannah was also very responsive to our various questions and issues both before and during my family's stay. I highly recommend Dune's Edge for a Wellfleet vacation stay.

Perfect Location

We had a fantastic time at Dune's Edge beach house! What a lovely and serene spot for a get-away. Everything was as described and the cottage is even better than the pictures! Lots of sunlight through the windows, a beautiful water view from the picture window and a convenient location. Check in and check out was very smooth. We enjoyed the nearby shops where we bought fresh seafood to cook at home, and took a trip up to Provincetown which was only a 20 minute drive away. I definitely recommend this place and would come back here again. Susannah was very helpful and communicative every step of the way. Highly recommend! show more show less

We spent a teriffic week at Dune's Edge in Wellfleet! The views from the cottage were stunning, the inside was impeccably clean and so very charmingly decorated. The location is wonderful. Walking distance to some great restaurants and bars, and of course, just up the hill from the beach. And the town center of Wellfleet is full of wonderful stores and galleries. We came home with a couple of pieces of artwork. Thank you for a great week, I know when we come back to Wellfleet we'd love to stay with you again. Thank you! show more show less

We had a fantastic week at Dune's Edge and in Wellfleet! Perfect beach house, perfectly situated to take advantage of the best Wellfleet and the Outer Cape have to offer. Couldn't have picked a better week either. Sunsets from the deck were amazing and the ability to walk to Mayo, the pier, and town were a huge plus. We look forward to returning. Susannah and her family could not have been better hosts.

Dune's Edge is a little jewel and was just perfect for our family of four: thoughtfully-equipped, elegant, bright, clean and beautiful views of the bay. The pictures don't even come close to just how lovely this cottage is! We loved walking down to the beach and town or just sitting on the deck enjoying the views. Susannah was an attentive host. We will definitely return!

The house was just as advertised: beautiful views, easy to get to, walking distance from downtown, but also quiet. We had plenty of room for the four of us. The house was immaculate and tidy with great attention to detail; the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed relaxing afternoons reading our books on the decks that overlook the bay. I can't remember the last time I slept until 7:30AM two nights in a row, but I did on this trip, so, I know I was relaxed. Dune's Edge gets my highest recommendation. Thanks for a wonderful experience. show more show less

Hi! I'm Susannah, a writer, doula and teacher. My husband Russell is a carpenter, who has been building and renovating beautiful Cape Cod homes for over 30 years. Both our families have been living on the Lower Cape for many generations. Russell is a native Cape Codder through and through (if you ask him, he'll tell you about how his first ancestor came here, it's a wonderful story). I grew up in Austria (my mother married my Austrian father), but summered here in Wellfleet every year and wanted to move here full-time since I remember. My mother comes from one of the oldest Wellfleet families - her ancestors are said to have arrived two boats after the Mayflower! We both love Wellfleet and Cape Cod with all our heart and during all seasons and love sharing this beautiful place with our guests. We also adore traveling and love meeting travelers from all over the world and welcoming you to our home and town. Thank you for coming to visit!

What is special about this property?
This adorable beach cottage named Dune's Edge was built by Susannah's grandpa Steve in the early 1940s and rented as part of one of Wellfleet's first summer cottage colonies - ''Packet Port Cottages'' - by Steve and Susannah's grandmother Clarece into the 1990s. Completely renovated by Susannah and Russell, Dune's Edge is now owned by their dear friend Toni Athans, who celebrates Dune's Edge's history with creative and lovingly chosen decor that resembles the interior of a packet ship.
Staying at this sweet cottage, you'll get a feel for the traditional ''old Cape Cod'' beach vacation while enjoying all modern luxuries.

What is special about your town?
Wellfleet is truly one of the most special places in the world. Our beaches are located in the National Seashore, they are protected so that there are only few houses build on them and no large hotels. Nature is right on our doorstep, and we feel so grateful for this! Whether you want to bike on our bike trails, hike or just relax on the beach, this is the spot for you. We also feel very lucky that we have so many great quality restaurants here and some of the best Oysters in the world. We're only 11 miles from bustling Provincetown and our town boasts many galleries and art events throughout the summer. In the off-season, which we love perhaps even more, you have the beaches and woods all to yourself and, as many writers and artists know, it is a wonderful place to be creative and inspired.
