"Cottage" is a deceiving name for this beautiful house. Inside it is so open and roomy with vaulted ceilings. Completely renovated top to bottom with modern and tasteful finishes, decor and furniture. Owners Lorraine and John were so great to work with and made the whole rental process so easy. This was the first year we rented on the Cape after many years of staying in hotels. Our children are older teens now, so it makes more sense to spread out in a house, and this was the perfect match for us. We are a family of four. Two adults, two teens. One brought a friend for part of the week, so the three bedrooms were key. The instruction booklet they leave for renters is very informative and tells you everything from where to put the trash, to good restaurants to try nearby.
We are very familiar to the area, so we knew how fantastic this location was before we even got there. Access to bike trail is right across the street - practically at the driveway of the house. The beautiful LeCount Hollow beach is right at the end of the street - no waiting in beach traffic, which is a huge bonus on Cape Cod! There is beach traffic every day on Route 6, and, the fact that this house sits off route 6 on the Ocean side, on a road that leads to several world renowned beaches, is so convenient. The Bay side of Wellfleet is just across Route 6 and is also a beautiful place to spend time shopping and eating at many great restaurants, or going to a Bayside beach.
The house has so many things that a lot of other rentals don't - like a washer and dryer, beautiful deck out back that wraps around to side door entrance to the house, back deck is very private with fence on one side and wooded hills surrounding the rest. There is an outdoor fireplace, an indoor fireplace ( if you stay off season), an outdoor shower - which even has warm water! My son and husband took their showers outside a couple days just to give me the bathroom time. The Ductless built in AC keeps the house nice and cool. Very user friendly with remotes for each unit. There is wifi and a flat screen TV with cable. It truly felt like a home away from home for the week for us. There is also a shed big enough to store your bikes, which also comes with several beach chairs you can use if you forget your own.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The only things we had to bring were sheets, towels, and some groceries. The owners also own the cottage next door, which is where they stay, so we got a chance to meet them. Super nice people who were a pleasure to talk with. They are easy to find/contact if you need them, but never felt like we didn't have privacy. The two places are far enough apart, and they have done a great job of designing the outdoor spaces to have complete privacy.
Looking forward to staying here again!
