Description

Description

''Best House! Best Beach!'' Only Cape Cod Beach ranked U.S. Top Ten Family Friendly (Tripadvisor.com). Only Historic Bluff home to receive a ''Harry Truman White House'' total reconstruction and a ''Jacqueline Kennedy White House'' art & antique appointing. Only Bluff Cottage Grounds manicured to CDC ''Tick-safe Zone'' Guidelines. Only ''private jet'' to Paradise at less than ''coach'' per person. Visitors to Chequessett Bluff, with its wondrous, sweeping, Cape panorama, invariably erupt into nonverbal exultations of pure, aesthetic joy. Every eye flashes and every breath catches in childlike delight. The views really are that spectacular. And the venue is family perfect. This waterfront, three story home, with its wide porch and private beach, is one of the original Chequessett Inn Bluff Cottages built in the early 1900's by Sea Captain and banana tycoon L.D. Baker for friends and special guests. Edward Hopper, who famously painted the ''beauty beyond language,'' immortalized this home in his ''Cottages at Wellfleet.'' The house retains its original, now restored, Eastlake furnishings, its lovely, historic, Cape Cod charm and, because of its era, it stands taller, and is closer to the water than modern codes allow. Seagulls soar below you. Inviting bay waters are warm. There's a safe, prevailing, onshore breeze. When a sou'wester picks up, windsurfers and kite boarders literally fly. Kayak to The National Seashore's Great Island or behind the neck to the Herring River. Explore the estuaries at low tide. Stroll past the world's most famous oyster beds to Wellfleet Harbor for ice cream, sushi or lobster. Tell your loved ones to ''Go fly a kite'' and prepare for decades of gratitude.

While the home and beach are private and peaceful, Wellfleet's restaurants, galleries, theater, tennis, golf, kettle ponds, Atlantic beaches, grocery and village center are all just a cherrystone's throw away. It is a perfect family spot surrounded by the natural wonders of the Outer Cape and, like the National Seashore around it, its themes of enjoyment are vast and timeless.

    The Perfect Getaway

    We have stayed for three summers in a row in this perfect cape house. The house is warm and inviting, the view from the patio is breathtaking, and the beach just down the steps completes the dream vacation. The bay is warm and safe for our kids to swim in while the grownups can watch from above. A walk (or kayak) to Macs for the best seafood around. The owner is very friendly... it is just what you want when you want the Cape.

    "We stayed here for a week this past July. We had three families in the home and it worked great. The location of the house allowed everyone to schedule their own activities. We enjoyed sailing in the harbor,visiting the oyster-men, walking and biking into town and visiting the pond and ocean beaches. It was great to gather back at the house for dinner. With 2 picnic tables there is ample outside seating . The two nights it was too windy, we easily fit inside and had fun eating and playing games. The multiple bedrooms allowed everyone to have their own space and the huge kitchen and dining area worked well for our group! We can't wait to return." show more show less

    We are you. We've worked crazy-hard, with more fun and laughter than we ever thought possible under circumstances that we never previously imagined and are just plain happy to share all of that and to be part of a world that is already a better place because you and we did it. We are an extended family of those who serve: military, business, arts, medicine, hard physical labor and with a happy heart. It's all about paying it forward. Remember. The hand in the cookie jar is probably adding cookies for the benefit of others. We are you.

    What is special about this property?
    The magic of being right on the water, one with nature, of and in the sand, sun, estuaries, soft breezes, food, fun, art and the sharing with family and friends washes over everyone until all realize that the true beauty of this place is .... one another. Your children will thank you again and again. Fifty years from now. When they hug their own grandchildren and tell your story.

    What is special about your town?
    Wellfleet Village is the pearl in a vast National Seashore unspoiled oyster: ocean beaches, wild heath and forest, freshwater kettle ponds, sailing, boating, golf, fishing, tennis, art galleries, fine dining, seafood, world class live theater and fine arts, music, walking trails, bicycling, spectacular flora and fauna are all right out the door or just a few minutes walk or drive. Wellfleet warmly welcomes diverse families from around the world because at her very heart what puts the ''Well'' before our ''fleet'' .... is you!
