Description

Description

With amazing water views (some of best on Cape) this wonderfully comfortable house is lovingly furnished (Persian rugs, antiques, authentic cottage furniture, custom made coaches, chairs, day bed,and stuffed rocking chairs) and as such has a unique ambiance. Unlike the typically constructed house, Windward is a post and beam structure (all wood inside and out) that is also an incredibly bright/light home. In addition the homeowners wanted a house that was a quintessential cape cod house from the street side view but wanted much glass on the water side of the house to to take advantage of the amazing views. It has an open floor plan (but also with niches and crannies), 15 ft. cathedral ceilings and enormous numbers of 6 ft by 6 ft windows showcase the amazing panoramic water views and spectacular sunsets. The living area is essentially a huge screened porch (if the gliders are open and the A/C off).

This house provides it all. Windward offers you a ''turnkey'' home to start your summer vacation. You need only bring yourself and your own personal items as Windward is totally set up for you to start your vacation from the moment you arrive. No making beds,lugging beach gear,or anything else for that matter. Only SHED LESS dogs are permitted unless specifically agreed between homeowner and vacationer.

At high tide, you look right ...out at a mesmerizing view of sailboats, skiers, and other watercraft... whether the sea is calm or in a there is ''chop''. At low tide, you will be struck by the plethora of amazing flocks of water foul (not to mention more than a few oyster gatherers). Windswept's view is looking out toward Great Island.

Windward is close to many of Wellfeet's ocean, bay, and pond beaches, including its own. There are more bay , ocean, and pond beaches in Wellfleet nearby...more than any other town on the cape.Accessing any beach is easy because Wellfleet is narrowest town on cape.
for example, you can access a bay, ocean, or pond beach all within 5 minutes from one another.

Windward is within biking distance of the entrance to the Cape Cod Bike Trail. You can ride directly to trail from house without using a car. The Wellfleet Bay Sanctuary ( largest Audubon Society in MA. . Every day and evening you will have an abundance of activities from which to choose. There are the Shakespeare performances, nightly concerts, poetry readings, historical lectures, book signings, outdoor movies and inside cinema, a large combination of both cuisine eateries and family restaurant. All watercraft is available to rent for your use individually and there are many chartered options ( sail, fishing, sightseeing) as well.There are two amazing theaters in town that produce some of the most innovative and spellbinding performances all with professional actors. Every night, there are multiple professional offering making it difficult to choose which one to choose. Also, laying low at Windward watching the sunset from the deck is often a popular choice after spending all day at the beaches.

The Windwardt home itself has a very large open living space (LR, DR, and kitchen.) It has multiple clusters of seating areas so groups with differing agendas may enjoy an assortment of activities.... while remaining together on one floor. All floors are covered with authentic Oriental Persian rugs or hand made area rugs.

In the sitting/dining room there is a huge (4 seater) coach, a day bed, Morris chair, platform rocker, and Bose music system. This room also has a claw and ball antique table that can seat from 6 to 14 people depending on your needs. Unless watching TV or needing different rooms for different clusters of family members, this is ''everyone's'' favorite living space.

The LR also has many gliders and has equally fabulous water views. It has a seating arrangement that has 2 couches, a large matching stuffed chair and a rocking chair. This room has the upstairs TV with an extensive cable subscription.

The new (2012) gourmet kitchen has hand made wooden counter tops, custom built shaker style cabinets made of white ash, a huge island with recycle bins, new commercial grade stainless steel appliances (gas stove), and a lovely new slate floor. ( The woodworker had this kitchen featured in Fine Home Building Magazine. The amazing lighting artwork/ fixtures in the kitchen is the signature piece of the kitchen. The kitchen is provisioned for even the most sophisticated gourmet cook (between the pots and pans, baking dishes, every gadget imaginable, and more spices than you could imagine.

In both primary living spaces, you will feel like you are sitting right ''on top'' of the bay.

In 2013 we added a ''one of a kind '' double room outdoor enclosed shower with a dressing suite as well. The new outdoor shower has a private entrance from the master bedroom. There is a second outdoor shower adjacent to the back door.

The first floor has four bedrooms. The MB has a king size bed with a Temper-Pedic mattress and three 6 foot by 6 foot glider windows showcasing more fabulous water views. Also, the MB has its own sitting area, cable TV, a second Bose Music System, and its own master bath. The other three bedrooms all have access to the main bath off the center hall. One bedroom can be set up with a king size bed or two twin beds, another bedroom has a set of twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a double bed. All beds (other than MB have either custom made mattresses which are usually comfortably and always commented on.The latter was necessary because much of the furniture is authentic refinished voltage furniture or 1800 antiques.

There are two bathrooms on the floor with the bedrooms. The main bathroom was totally gutted and redone with the latest and most upscale products in 2015.This bathroom has a huge standing shower with glass on tow sides and abuts a huge tub ( both in height and length. Where there isn't hand plained wooden ( copied from master wood builders in the 1800 century ( all tongue and groove), the walls are white subway tiles.

The master bedroom private bath was just completed this summer ( also gutted at outset) It has a built in seat at end of shower that you can choose to heat. It also has a ceiling radiant heater in ceiling and an incredible amount of custom built cabinets. Many are built into walls so bathroom still feels airy and the glass door on shower is a practical and aesthetic choice that further enhances the MB bath. The till in shower, and floor is made of stone.

At Windward, the vacationer will have access to umpteen non fiction books about Wellfleet and Cape Cod. There are always plenty of top ten recent fictional books and fictional books either written by local authors and/or set in local cape cod settings.They are located next to a daybed that ask has magnificent views of the bay.

Our goal is to provide a unique home to Cape Cod vacationers. We are committed to insuring that Windswept provides a feeling of casual luxury, a home with exceptional water views, and a home that is exceedingly welcoming upon arrival. The house has a team of cleaning people including the owners who spend at least 24 hours between departing and arriving guests, cleaning/readying the house for our incoming guests. You, the vacationer, need only begin your relaxing, special and comfortable vacation. Every bed is made up with 600+ percale cotton sheets. Every room has been cleaned from top to bottom. Windward provides beach towels, bathroom towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and other items upon request. It is our hope and wish that, with the fabulous breezes, the comfortable and luxurious feel of the house, and the majestic views, you, our guest, will feel immediately upon arrival. ACCEPT NON SHEDDING DOGS ONLY except when mutually agreed to permit otherwise.

There are 4 outdoor seating areas with tables, chaise lounges. One is in the pines in front of Windward where it is cool but not so breezy. One is specifically designed for use by those that are the renters in the MB. Another is one the second floor and while it is directly exposed to sun, the breezes off the water make it a favorite outdoor space. Those that want the same view and comfort can choose a patio directly below the deck.

Beautifully maintained and stocked

The attention to detail in this home was impressive. Thoughtfully stocked and supplied better than any other vacation home we've experienced. From books to toiletries to kitchen basics and beach necessities, they thought of everything.

Beautiful views and a great relaxing place to get away. This home is lovingly maintained. Wellfleet is full of fun things to do, but does require you drive everywhere. Many sights and activities are just a quick 10 minute drive.

The water is accessible from the home down a beautiful path that feels a bit long for lugging watercraft. It's worth it if you can time the tides correctly and it's not too windy though. show more show less

Beautiful Views and Spectacular Home

We had a wonderful time in Wellfleet with our 4 grown / young adult children + one significant other. The house was extremely well appointed. As Elisabeth will tell you it has an - "Upside down floor plan/ design". All the bedrooms are at ground/ entry level and were very roomy, especially the master bedroom.

Both bathrooms were beautifully updated with custom built in cabinetry, and all the supplies one would ever need. The kitchen and large open living space are on the 2nd floor to maximize the views of the bay; and the sunsets were spectacular. The kitchen was recently updated with everything you'll need to cook a gourmet meal if so inclined.

Elisabeth thought of everything you'll need for your vacation, from toothpaste and spices to sunscreen and bug-spray, she left no stone unturned.

This home is in South Wellfleet and close to all beaches, with many options available on both the bay and ocean side. The neighborhood is also a great place to stroll around for a casual walk or vigorous run. We will definitely book again when we return to Wellfleet

7th Year Renting Windward

We've been renting Windward since 2015 and have loved every year. Our vacation this year was just the four of us (2 adults and 2 children) but in years passed we've had grandparents stay with us for a week and friends visit for dinner.

The house has a lovely upstairs where everyone can have dinner and play board games and also plenty of space to read a book on the deck or in the hammock by yourself. It's a lovely house where you relax from the moment you walk in the door - the views are amazing and the house is so well taken care of that there is nothing for you to do but enjoy your vacation!!! show more show less

Amazing Windward

Our stay at Windward was nothing short of amazing. The views are, as advertised, spectacular. We never tired of sitting on the upper deck watching the tide come in and go out. And of course the sunsets were breathtaking.

In designing and furnishing Windward, Elisabeth and Doug have managed to provide vacationers with a setting that is both tasteful and comfortable. There is an overall quaint feel to the house, but at the same time it contains a state of the art kitchen and luxurious bathrooms. My wife and I typically do not sleep well in rental homes. The bed in the Windward master bedroom was so comfortable, however, that we went out and bought our own Tempur-Pedic mattress the day after we returned home.

Elisabeth and Doug have anticipated nearly every need a vacationer could have-Windward truly is a turnkey rental property. Beyond that they are, again as advertised, very available and accommodating. Elisabeth responded promptly to every text I sent to her and had a number of suggestions about things to do at the Cape.

I would definitely recommend Windward to anyone looking to spend a relaxing vacation in a unique, super clean Cape property.

Great Stay on the Cape

This impressively updated Cape house has a beautiful view on the bay side and is close to many things on the lower Cape. It was perfect for a visit with kids, grandkids and relatives. We aged from 2 to 86. It was well set up for socializing, cooking or heading out to explore.

It is near one of the Audobon sanctuaries for any birders. Everything worked very well and grill and washer/dryer were especially appreciated. There is sun on the deck or shade below depending on time of day.

The owner will check in with you periodically to see if you need anything(information or other) and is most gracious.

Windward All the Way

Windward was a perfect vacation home for us along with our hypoallergenic Basenjis. They loved it inside and out and made a strong case for never leaving. Now I see they had it right- it was our best escape yet.

The beauty of the house continued to reveal itself through the week. The beauty of the ever changing view with the tides and the light and the sunset both inside and just outside the house was enchanting. We utilized all 4 of the outdoor spaces. The basenjis loved the top deck out in the warm sun feeling the closest they've come to the Sahara. Did I mention the breeze? show more show less

Renter review

We as a family rented out Windward from May 8- May 15, 2021. Starting from our interest in renting until the day we left the rental, Elisabeth was extremely pleasant, and very much in communication with us as far as our needs, and also with her expectations she has for us renters.

Windward appearance looked like it has been very well taking care of. The cleanliness and overall well stocked with just about everything we could need, from pots and pans, to brochures for attractions, to beach chair, to medicine in the the bathroom cabinets. The view is breathtaking with the pond/ marsh in the back yard, from viewing either inside or out! We much enjoyed spending time outside with outdoor seating she has. The kitchen was beautiful, easy access to appliances, and everything in between. The four bedrooms were very sufficient for what we had needed and more.

I would highly recommend this rental, we do plan to rent again!!!

Wonderful

Windward was just a great home for our get a way week in Wellfleet. The house is truly a home made cozy and comfortable by Elisabeth and Doug. There is all one would ever need in the house from all the tools and gadgets in the upgraded kitchen to the comfortable beds and stylish renovated bathrooms. The two days of fog/rain/drizzle made no difference to us as we settled in "at home" reading, relaxing and watching the changing tides, sky and weather from the house.

Best words to describe Windward....cozy, warm, comfortable. Thank you to Elisabeth and Doug for making a lovely place to be.

Spectacular view and gracious hosts

The 2020 election and Covid prompted my husband and I to seek refuge as well as visit family in the New England area. Our hosts had the most wonderful home, beautiful views and perfect amenities. The proximity of beaches, restaurants and hiking trails were surprising. Wellfleet is welcoming as it is inviting. We highly recommend Windward.

Windward

We were so excited about returning to Cape Cod, in particular to Wellfleet. We have rented houses there in past years, but after a stressful spring and summer in NYC with COVID we needed a little escape. As soon as we saw photos of Windward we knew this was where we needed to be, and it did not disappoint us in the least! The house itself is equipped with everything one would need on a vacation. All we needed to bring was ourselves! The house is extremely comfortable and the views from all the windows are spectacular. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax, and the house has so many cozy places to do just that.

There is easy access to Wellfleet proper which is a quaint New England fishing village with a great history. We loved driving around the scenic country-like lanes never getting lost, finding beaches off the beaten path, and exploring the galleries off season was all delightful. Wellfleet is perfectly situated; being close to P-Town, Orleans and the drive south to Chatham is lovely.

The house was just what us city slickers needed to unwind from the stressful past few months, looking out at the bay from the raised terrace of the house and watching the spectacular sunset, taking walks on the beaches, sitting in the comfy lounge by a window in the corner of the room (which I claimed as my own as soon as we walked into the house), and napping while listening to the rain hit the rooftop on the days when the weather did not cooperate was "just what the doctor ordered". It is a tranquil retreat that we would return to in a heartbeat. The owners were gracious, responsive, and invested in wanting to make our stay in their treasured home as comfortable as possible.

I have been renting Windward through We Need a Vacation.com for 12 years. Before this rental site was launched, I was fearful of renting Windward because I wanted to have a direct connection with the vacationer to be sure Windward was the most well suited house for the needs of you, the vacationers. It is very important to me that vacationers experience at Windward exceeds their expectations.

I keep the house unusually well maintained both inside and out. Every year, I spend a huge amount and expense on making Windward even more special than it was year before. I feel this is a never ending adventure to create new concepts for Windward's interior and exterior. This is a passion for me that translates into an amazing plus for vacationers. Returning vacationers are always equally anticipating the new completed projects completed each year.

What is special about this property?
Windward's greatest asset is the compliation of many facets. !) its locations with amazing views and sunsets, 2) It is a non rental location wherein it is quiet and tranquil 3) It has amazing breezes ( if neither of 2 central A/C units are utilized 4) the post and beam construction itself and wide planking which came from wood centuries of years ago 5) the house's main living space lay out which lends itself to having people being able to do many different activities without being 'cut of'' in different rooms 5) all the custom furniture and original refinished cottage furniture and antiques which create a special ambiance. 5) its quintessential cape cod feel coupled with all new state of the art rooms like its kitchen, overhanging deck, bathrooms 6) the meticulous care provided to this house on an annual basis. 7) the 24 cleaning spent on readying the house between vacationers. 8) the attention to detail in so much that you, the vacationer can arrive without bringing the typical beach gear or linens and enjoy that the owner has provided the work to completely ready the house for your arrival.

What is special about your town?
Wellfleet is situated on the narrowest width of Cape Cod. This means that it ( in some situations ) only a bike ride away from the huge and rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean beaches to the more calm and warmer waters of beaches on the bayside. Also, Wellfleet is known also for the abundance of Kettle ( freshwater) ponds which also have beaches to which you have access.

Wellfleet actually has a quintessential town center that presents very much as it did a century ago. Most of the same homes and other structures are in tact and lovingly restored to show as they did at the formation of the town. There is a local market ( with almost anything you could need), ice cream shoppe, liquor store, pharmacy just before entering town, bakeries, restaurants, many gift and boutique shoppes.

Wellfleet has an an unusual number of spaces wherein activities are planned almost all the time 1) Preservation Hall, WHAT, Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theater, Audubon sanctuary, Cape Cod 30 plus mile bike ( Rail Trail), ) Art Gallery town, amazing
recreation facilities for children,

Wellfleet the town that is the exact middle town of outer cape. Truro and Wellfleet are in one direction and Eastham and Orleans are in other.

Windward is in the center of it all ( albeit tucked in off on a sand road). One can walk, bike to all three types of beaches ((ocean, bay, pond) , bike to Rail Trail and Audubon sanctuary, theaters, restaurants, and is only a couple of miles from the town center.
