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.

Cape Cod stay

5 stars. Property is as described. During 3 week stay there were as many as 6 adults and 4 children in the party. The property easily accommodated all. Not necessarily a property for active kids under 10 unless one plans to hit the beaches every day as the grounds around the property are protected. The owner might appear to be rather controlling as she sends out a 16 page history of the house , recent renovations, and dos and don'ts, but this is not the case. She is understandably proud of the house and the Cape Cod atmosphere one enjoys within it. She is very discrete during one's stay. One improvement would include an outdoor light on the second floor patio deck.

Mother In Law declared Windward a “10”

Windward has everything set up for anything you could possibly want to do. There are beach chairs in several varieties, umbrellas (with corkscrew), and the best beach blankets ever. (We’ve already ordered one.) The house is very close to our favorite kettle pond. We enjoyed running out to the ponds and beaches while the grandparents enjoyed sticking close to the house.

The house is immaculate. This is NOT a spidery Cape Cod by the beach (although we like those too). This house is well appointed. The kitchen is spectacular to cook in, and the views from the deck are stunning at sunset.

We had family come in from all over the country, and Windward accommodated us perfectly. If you’re looking for a turnkey house, Windward is the place.

Home away from Home

Home away from Home but better - you’re in Wellfleet! My family and I just returned from our second stay at Windward, and we were once again delighted by this home! This home is very unique, beautiful and is in a gorgeous location as you can see in the photos. What you cannot see in the photos is the ease in which this home envelopes its occupants. There are rooms to gather and plenty of spaces for privacy and relaxing. Our favorite spot is the deck off the kitchen with the spectacular views; but, the seating areas underneath the deck and by the hammock (the hammock!) provide quiet spots to read, rest or have a private conversation.

From the moment of entry one is keenly aware that this is a home that is cherished and was built with love, great care and attention to detail decoratively and otherwise. Elisabeth is a lovely woman and has tended to every detail - and is also readily available should anything come up during your stay. Upon arrival, you will find a pristine home that has everything you may need and is very organized. We have been coming to the Cape every year for at least 25 years, and this is by far our favorite house. You only need bring your personal belongings. Elisabeth provides all linens (the very comfortable beds are made up prior to your arrival), beach towels, beach chairs - anything you might need at all is at this house and is in good working order and easy to find. The view, the linens, the air conditioning and the uniqueness of this very “Capey” home make this our favorite home of all time in Wellfleet and we plan on returning as long as Elisabeth will have us! Do not have any reservations in renting this home - it truly provides a sublime vacation.

Best in Wellfleet

We had stayed at this place in 2008 and remembered it as a nice place, so we scheduled it for a month long stay. The house was beyond phenominal this time! The new air conditioning was a plus on the day of our arrival as it was very warm and the heat was welcome also during our stay. The upgraded baths are so nice, and the outdoor shower was great especially well done and enjoyable.

I am a clean freak and always travel with all kinds of cleaning supplies and my own set of linens, pillows and mattress cover for my bed. Which is TOTALLY unnecessary at Windward!!

The house was spotless, the bed linens were absolutely luxurious with lovely sleeping pillows on all the beds. Bed covers and blankets were also clean and high quality. The baths all had high end bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths.

The owner had upgraded the kitchen which included a Wolf gas cook top, stainless steel appliances, double ovens and every type of cooking pots and pans. baking items and cooking utensils you would have in your own home. Preparing meals was a dream, and the home included a lovey collection of spices to use. No need to rush out to the store on arrival because all the basics were there! The place even had placemats and cloth napkins and plenty of dishes to serve a large family or create a romantic setting for two.

Every room in the home has special places to curl up and read or nap with beautiful views of the water and marsh. The art work in the home is lovely, the additional supply of books to read great, and it you want a truly relaxing vacation with that "Ritz Carlton" touch and feel, this is the place for you!

Lovely, well-appointed home with great amenities

As a group of old friends from high school, we love spending time together but have had a hard time finding the perfect house to rent. This is the first time in our several years of going to the Cape together where we wanted to rent the same house again; thank you very much for providing such a lovely, welcoming, well-appointed and comfortable home!

Amazing water view!

Windward is a lovely home with an amazing water view! If you're interested in riding bikes on the rail trail, you'll be pleased that you can ride through the quiet neighborhood and easily get on the trail. Wellfleet beaches are amazing, and the homeowner provides all the necessary beach gear - a huge bonus! The interior of the house is beautifully decorated with lots of comfy seating, and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need plus some! We had a wonderful week sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful view, visiting all the great beaches, bike riding and playing games around the big dining room table! If you're looking for a great family home for your teenagers, Windward is for you! show more show less

Better every year!

Our family-and-friends group of six adults enjoyed a fabulous September week at Windward for the second year on a row. The property is represented well by the photos, but it is much, much better being there. Perched over the bay as it is, the view is not only stunning but also endlessly fascinating and beautiful as the tides go in and out, constantly changing. We love the way we can walk right from the house as far as we wish along the bay. The house itself is very livable, with plenty of room to hang out together, cook in the gourmet kitchen, dine, or be alone in one of the living rooms or on one of the decks. You can tell that the owner, Elizabeth, truly loves Windward, and it is evident that she is attentive to making sure everything is in good order. We love being at Windward and are hoping to make it three years in a row. This year we appreciated the beauty and functionality of Windward even more than the first time. Those sunsets grow on you! Top notch getaway home! show more show less

Amazing Views

Our one week stay at Windswept was awesome! The owner really takes pride in providing all that is needed for a perfect vacation. The pictures do not do it justice! From the gas grill, to the gas stove, flat screen TVs, super modern microwave, and oven, to the small things like poison ivy remedy, (which my Dad got while golfing) there was nothing but food and drinks that we needed to bring. I looked for countless hours to find the perfect home for all my family's needs and I found one. I needed an exceptionally clean, and mold/mildew free place for one of my guests due to allergies/asthma. Also enough bathrooms to accommodate all of the guests.

The house was exceptionally clean, and the easy to use AC on both floors helped a great deal with the 95 degree muggy weather day we had on our week! It was also a great location for all of our day trips, from Provincetown to Sandwich. All of my guests, as was I, were pleasantly surprised of the all extras that were included to make our vacation special. On top of having a fully equipped house from beach towels, to umbrellas, to any kind of spice, cooking pans, glasses, plates, blenders, you need, nothing compared to having such a spectacular view at any time of day, but especially sunset. I recommend this house to anyone who is interested in a quiet, worry-free vacation.

Windward

We had a lovely stay at Windward, and the home exceeded our expectations.

Windward is very charming and comfortable with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the water views. It is very well maintained and immaculate! The kitchen was beautifully renovated and is well stocked with everything you could possibly need.

We were greeted by the property owner who kindly gave us a tour of the property. She provided plenty of tourist information to make our stay more pleasurable. Beautiful Wellfleet beaches are located close by as is the bike trail. A truly exceptional property! show more show less

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.
