Description

Description

Situated down a dirt road that runs parallel to the ocean, the cottage, of ''salt box'' design, was formerly a carriage house. It is adjacent to the house of John Young Nucomb, which Thoreau described as the house of the Wellfleet oysterman in ''Cape Cod.'' A typical New England breezeway connects the Salt Box to the main house, with two doors between to ensure privacy. There is beach access on Williams Pond, and you can canoe over to the sluice between Higgins and Gull ponds. It's about a 15-minute walk through the woods and over the dunes to the ocean. It's a bird watcher's paradise!

The Salt Box has a cathedral ceiling, dining area, kitchenette, and living area with fireplace. There is one double bedroom, and an open sleeping loft (containing one double bed and one single). The cottage is fully equipped. Linens are provided. In addition to the full bath, there is an outside shower. Should you prefer to eat outside, there is a brick patio with a charcoal grill and table and chaA canoe is available.
Limited WiFi available.

charming, rustic, historic cottage

This charming, rustic cottage is in a spectacular setting of beautiful woods and ponds and is accessible by a private, one and a half mile rutted dirt road. On a canoe or kayak pond with access to Higgins Pond, great for swimming. Another private swimming pond is a ten minute walk through the woods and just beyond that, a private ocean beach. Fans are provided, no air conditioning. The kitchen is quite adequate with cook stove, convection/microwave oven, toaster, no dishwasher. We had one of the best vacations we've had in Wellfleet because the setting enabled us to kayak and canoe, swim, hike, bird watch from the cottage. The owner was helpful, kind, and flexible. show more show less
