Welcome to our contemporary vacation home, built in 2005, and situated on one of the highest spots on Indian Neck. Designed for us, we think it will appeal to you.

The focus on the upper level is the 32 ft long living/dining room with cathedral ceiling and fireplace. Two sliders open onto a 700 square foot wrap-around deck with water views in three directions. You feel you are up among the surrounding oak and pine trees. Off the dining area, the cooks will love the large kitchen with all conveniences, together with an island and breakfast bar. A powder room is conveniently located on this level.

The deck has a grille, and with two tables and umbrellas is ideal for outdoor meals. We typically use it every other evening. At this elevation there is almost always a breeze, even when there is none at ground level. We often have a view clear across the bay.

On the first level are three bedrooms, two baths and a TV area. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and bath. A second bedroom has a queen and a twin. It shares a bath (with shower) with another bedroom with three twins. All bedrooms have adjustable ceiling fans which are great for sleeping. We even have two split AC units for those occasional hot, humid nights. Outside the TV room is a shaded deck with rocking chairs and a nearby hammock, both great places to relax or curl up with a book.

The Wellfleet town beaches on the bay and the freshwater ponds at Gull, Great and Long Ponds, are within 1.5 miles. The ocean beaches are less than two miles away. On the bay side, our local beach (5 min walk) is conveniently accessible only to nearby residents (including us) due to the absence of parking. Bike trails are within a mile.

We have high-speed cable internet access, available via wireless router to your laptop anywhere in the house (even when you should be at the beach!) We also have both cable TV and Roku TV (and a DVD player).

While we do not provide linens (sheets and towels) they are readily available from a local rental service, by advance arrangement.

Fantastic house and location

We have been coming here for several years now and could not be happier! The house is gorgeous, lots of space and has beautiful views from the deck. It is always immaculate and has plenty of space. The beach is a short walk and is a great family beach with smaller waves and plenty of exploring opportunities! The homeowner is an absolute pleasure to work with. We are already looking forward to our week here next year!

Relaxing week

We enjoyed a very relaxing week. Felt like home rather than a rental. The house was immaculate with everything you could possibly need. Safe for teen and tween age kids to walk to the beach. Best part was relaxing on the deck with a great breeze and beautiful views.

What a great vacation! This is our second time at #25 and our time couldn’t have been better. Wish we could stay another week. Thank you again for housing our family. You helped us create memories that will last a lifetime.

So grateful we found this place

This house met all of our needs. We usually stay in Eastham (for free) but decided to try something new. This house was worth every penny. So many great amenities! Loved that our kids could walk or ride bikes down to the water at their leisure. And as much as we love to eat out while on vacation, we stayed in and grilled/cooked several evenings because the kitchen was so well stocked and the deck had such beautiful views. Looking forward to another great vacation this August!

Great views, meticulously maintained!

This was our third year in a row in this house. We have stayed in other homes in Wellfleet that were clearly just money-making rentals with mismatched furnishings and inadequate kitchen supplies. Not this home! It is clearly loved, used and perfectly maintained by its owners who built it just a few years ago. The kitchen is particularly wonderful if you like to cook. It is completely, fully stocked with all the implements you will need to cook up just about anything you can imagine. And the light and views from the second floor where you spend most of your time are perfect: sky, pines, and ocean. It's so relaxing just hanging out in the house. The little bay beach that is a short walk away is lots of fun and a wonderful change from the ocean beaches and ponds which are also close. The kids love chasing crabs up the estuary there and collecting shells. (Don't forget your water shoes/sandals for this beach! The abundant shells are fun but can be quite sharp.) It's heavenly to be able to just walk out the door and go for a quick swim or splash and then come right home.

The owners are exceptionally helpful and responsive. Though the house is quite new, a couple little things broke while we were there and they were right on top of it, sending in help the next day.
We like the home furnishings too. Simple, clean and no knick knacks lying around for the children to break. There are no busy roads nearby so that's also wonderful for kids, and we find the quiet roads around here nice for bicycling as well.

A super clean, super bright and airy home!

Wonderful! We enjoyed all that your home and Wellfleet have to offer. The deck alone gave us hours of joy, breezes, views and pleasure. We hope to be back.

About Alan Simons

My parents purchased the land on Indian Neck in 1956. They considered different house designs, but wanted to get it right, so were deliberate. When a half dozen grandchildren came along, the deliberation ended and the house went up in 1989. In 2020 the torch was passed to the next generation, and we are pleased that so many people have come to love and enjoy the house our parents built and that many of them return to summer with their own kids and grandkids.

What is special about this property?
Our location is quiet, yet within easy walking distance of the bay beach and a short drive to the ocean side, ponds, restaurants, theater, and shopping in Wellfleet Center. Provincetown with all it offers, the Wellfleet Drive-in, and Orleans with its supermarkets and other stores, are all a short drive away. The house design combines comfort, sophistication, function and fun.

What is special about your town?
Wellfleet tends to speak for itself. If you haven't been here, come and you'll see what I mean.
