Description

Description

This is the most dramatic location in Wellfleet, on the bluff with your own very short path to the sandy,swimmable beach and Wellfleet Harbor. 'Fairwinds', an architect-designed contemporary house is furnished for comfort and elegance. You'll have views of the Bay and harbor from almost every room. With walls of glass the beauty of the Cape--and its incomparable light--is always with you. The house has an open, easy flow and newly refinished wood floors throughout. The furniture is comfortable with several couches for easy living. At a table in the front of the house diners have constant views of the water, sky and town as sailors glide in and out of the harbor and fishing boats bring in their catch. Shop in Wellfleet's fine art galleries, good food shops, and, of course, get fresh seafood and vegetables to cook at home or treat yourself to our great restaurants. It is about a 15 minute walk along the marsh to Uncle Tim's pedestrian bridge which deposits you in town. At sunset--and there are no more majestic sunsets anywhere--lower the deck umbrella and relax.Perhaps bar-b-que on the Weber gas grill while enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of Wellfleet Harbor, or choose from many local excellent restaurants. In the Fall light a fire in the fireplace, use the DVD, or enjoy the moonlight. The glow of lights on the water is magical. Strolling on the beach is a delight, day or night. When it's time for bed head upstairs to the Master Bedroom with its own fireplace, but take a quiet moment to step out on the upper deck for a view of the near-by stars and the lighted steeple of the Congregational Church.
Other amenities: Wi-Fi. Zoned air-conditioning systems with individual thermostats cool and dehumidify the house. Professionally cleaned, freshly painted, brand new King mattress in master bedroom, new duvets, pillows and mattress pads. Newer hot-water system just installed. Swim in the near-by fresh-water ponds, great for families, or ocean, bring kayaks and put in at our Bay beach, stroll or swim in front of the house, walk a few minutes along the shore to Uncle Tim's Bridge and town. Three-zoned heating and two fireplaces to make the house toasty in winter. A jewel of a house in the perfect location.

Perfect View

We loved this house with the most perfect view of Wellfleet Harbor. I mean it REALLY is perfect. The house is great, too, but it's all about the view, which is fully visible while sitting inside on the sofa as well as outside on either the balcony or the patio. The boats going back and forth entertained us for days on end, and we were on the patio pretty much from waking up until after dinner. We cooked more than we usually do on vacation, and the kitchen is very well stocked with any possible pan, plate or spice available. The owners are easily accessible via text should you need anything, but you probably won't. They've thought of all the little details that make a vacation rental comfortable and pleasant. We are already talking about whether we might try to go back in September or October, so it's a hit with us. show more show less

Fairwinds, a special place

We have been coming to Fairwinds for many years, and can't think of anywhere we'd rather be! The views are spectacular and the house is lovely, comfortable, and clean with all the amenities you would want in a vacation home. The owners are super responsive and helpful. You would be lucky to stay here.

Extraordinary, gorgeous home!

This may be the perfect vacation home. We loved it, inside and out!

Best bits: the wall of windows that look out onto the harbor, the pleasant nature walk to Wellfleet, the quiet, the wildlife in the air and water, the activity on the pier. You are close to the middle of things, but far enough away for privacy and quiet when you want them.

This home is tastefully decorated and well-equipped. The airy interior architecture feels sunny at all times. The place was spotless when we arrived and delightful for our two weeks there. There was room for us to spread out as well as plenty of time spent together playing board games or reading in the open-plan living room with spectacular views of the harbor.

Our hosts were kind and gracious when we had to make a special request.

Bring your binoculars or borrow the hosts' because there was plenty of bird watching (cormorants, loons) and sea life (seals, sunfish) to keep us jumping up and calling everyone to take a look.

We will be back!

Great Cape House!!!

This is a great place to stay for a week in Wellfleet. Gorgeous water views from all over the house. Easy to get to Wellfleet Center, beaches, lakes, and bike trail. Fully outfitted kitchen and beautiful outdoor eating area are especially good features since we wanted to have dinner at the house every night to see the sunset over the water.

The best

I have been coming to Wellfleet for 30 years. I have rented many places, some better than others. I have not enjoyed myself as much as I did last week at Kathy’s place overlooking the harbor.

I was not sure what to expect. Pictures just don’t do it justice. The vibe was relaxed, welcoming and comfortable. The views were amazing. We were made to feel welcome.

The rooms were lovely, neat as a pin. The view from the main level sitting room was the greatest. The grounds were beautifully maintained by the gardener who came by on Wednesday.

We love to visit the Beachcomber, Winslow’s and the Bookstore. All were a 5 minute drive.

We took advantage of the lovely deck and small beach. I simply can’t say enough about this vacation.

Can’t wait to get back next summer.

Amazing place for families

We spent a week at Fairwinds for the second time, this time with our two little kids (ages 4 and 1). The house is perfect for families, with the beach just below to play on, and wonderful sunset views to enjoy after the kids are asleep. Our older son enjoyed watching the boats in the channel/marina, and paddling our rented kayak across the bay to get dinner and ice cream. The house is spotless and has every amenity you might need with kids: Pack n Play, baby gates, sand toys, etc. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to use. And the owners are extremely friendly and responsive. The only downside is that we had to leave! show more show less

Fantastic Vacation House

We are off-season travelers and this was the perfect house to stay in for our return to the Cape. Communicating with the owners was easy and a pleasure, prior to the rental, during and after as well. The location is absolutely fantastic. We prefer the Outer Cape region and Wellfleet is just about the perfect spot for access to both bayside and the seashore, P-Town and Chatham. The house itself is fully and I mean fully equipped. We cooked-in every night but one and the kitchen was completely stocked with every pot, pan, dish, glass and spices galore. Not to mention olive oil and other various and sundry culinary needs. The beds were more than comfortable, the view stupendous and the beach access unparalleled. The wifi worked beautifully and the house was always warm enough, even in November. The owners went above and beyond to ensure that our experience was pleasant and our stay was 5-star...it was! Highly recommended we will be back next year! show more show less

Beautiful Home - Beautiful Views!

Our family of 5 adults and a 1-year-old loved our first stay at Fairwinds. The space felt welcoming from the moment we opened the front door. We enjoyed bright natural light throughout the home and the beautiful views from the upper deck, lower deck, the living room looking out a wall of windows, the bedrooms - from all directions - all amazing. We particularly appreciated the well stocked kitchen with nice wine and beverage glasses, serving dishes and utensils, spices, pans, everything we needed for fun dinners. Adults and our 1-year-old enjoyed the beach and the provided beach chairs, umbrella and sand toys. We walked to town every day. We loved being able to grill.

We've vacationed at various places throughout Cape Cod for 15 years. This is a top location and home with owners who clearly care about creating a wonderful experience for their guests. We hope to be back next summer.

Gorgeous views from a great house!

We had the fortune of staying at Fairwinds for the week of July 4th. The location is great. We walked to the 4th of July parade.

There’s a nice, quiet beach right in front of the house and they had tons of beach toys, chairs, etc. Morning strolls were so peaceful.

The patio was a definite highlight. We spent every morning having breakfast outside while watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. It was gorgeous.

The house was fully stocked/everything we needed in the kitchen and everything was well organized. We had a couple of babies in our group, and they had everything we needed to feel comfortable such as dishware, a highchair, beach toys, baby gates, a pack n play, etc.

The owners left detailed instructions for everything, which was super helpful. Finally the owner, Kathy, was very responsive to any inquiries, both timely in her replies (within 24 hours) and complete answers to all questions.

Wonderful for a Family Seeking Quiet

Fairwinds is a perfect spot for a family with young kids seeking a quieter time on the Cape (which is exactly what we wanted). The view is spectacular - my son loved watching the boats in the harbor from the living room window (and we loved watching the sunsets after he had gone to bed!) We loved being able to walk right down to the beach to see crabs, build sandcastles, and swim. The house itself is lovely without being too fancy for messy toddlers, and has every convenience imaginable. The new owners were great to work with - their communications before our stay were clear and they checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. We hope to go back again! show more show less

I'm Kathy and my husband Matt and I have been the owners of Fairwinds since 2016 after renting from Toni and David for many years. If you're previous renters, know that Toni wishes you well with many happy returns to Wellfleet! We live in Connecticut much of the year so will be using the house ourselves and sharing it with all of you too. We are lucky enough to have kept many of the house's distinctive works of art and are adding to it from our travels around and beyond the Cape. It will continue to be furnished and maintained to the highest standards, ideal for multi-generations, clean and comfortable for families with kids while still being elegant and relaxing for adults. Wellfleet is one of our family's favorite places and we hope it will be your's too!


What is special about this property?
Our house has a location which is extraordinary. It sits on a low bluff, overlooking Cape Cod Bay, Wellfleet Inner and Outer Harbors, Indian Neck, Great Island and Lieutenant's Island, so sunsets are not to be missed. We face due West and cocktails and oysters on the deck at sunset are our favorite time. We can swim, sail and kayak right in front of our house, but if you like fresh water, the Wellfleet Ponds are gorgeous. They are really fresh-water lakes, and some, five minutes from the house, are quite large lakes. And there's the ocean, the National Seashore, the Audobon Society, the Theater known as W.H.A.T. We love the local fish and shellfish, and being with family who rent other houses within a minute or two of us. Our house is ideal for six or seven people, and even has a spot for a person who can't handle stairs. We have WiFi. We also have three-zone heating, and summer air conditioning. There is an outdoor shower for after the beach, and access through the lower level where towels and bathing suits can be hung. For winter renters we have two functioning fireplaces and provide firewood for our guests. A Blue House Book is crammed with suggestions of places to eat, things to do and useful services. We keep it up-to-date and add favorites, from us and guests, each time we are there.


What is special about your town?
It was love at first sight when we walked in the door and saw the view and when we said ''if you ever decide to sell, please tell us'' we never expected it to actually happen...but here we are! If you've been to Wellfleet before, you know how unique it is and if you're a new visitor, you're in for a treat. The restaurants and art galleries are welcoming and wonderful. There's fine dining for adults and excellent casual choices for families who come right from the beach. The Library is a perfect place to go when it's raining and has programs for kids and a full schedule of lectures for adults. The town is ideally situated to take advantage of the wonders of the Cape. You can find 3 different types of swimming areas, the famous fresh-water Kettle Ponds, like Gull Pond, which are really sizable lakes, the Cape Cod Bay beach in front of our house, and all the ocean beaches which are a 5 minute drive away. The Cape Cod Bike Trail is nearby and you can walk to Town from the house along the shore, crossing the lovely wooden footbridge called Uncle Tim's Bridge. And don't miss the Wellfleet drive-in just down the road, one of the only ones left in the country!
