South Wellfleet cottage description

This cozy cottage is one of 20 free standing condo cottages at the Wellfleeter and has a spectacular waterfront view of Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay - from every room! Private stairs lead you down to the sandy bay beach for swimming, boating, fishing, shell fishing, or just plain relaxing! The sunsets will take your breath away. The beach is just 20 ft from this condo. Right down the street from the playground, skateboard park, tennis and basketball courts. The town pier, many restaurants, art galleries and shopping in downtown Wellfleet are within a short distance. I often walk it. The cottage has wireless internet!

          Other Amenities

              • Probably the most important feature to us is the cleanliness of the cottage. It is extremely important to us that you arrive to a sparkling clean cottage to enjoy your vacation. It is equally important that you leave the cottage just as clean for the next tenant and we have a checklist that we will use to make sure you did. A cleaning service can be provided for an additional charge otherwise you are expected to clean yourself. Our check out time is before 10:00 am. Experience has taught me that although the cottage is small, in order to make sure it is left clean enough you should start the night before....moreless

              Car: Recommended

              This premier location is right on the Bay and is walking distance from fine and casual dining, the Town Pier, the new Stage Harbor Actor's Theater, and Wellfleet's Town Center, featuring art galleries, shops and more eateries! Also in walking distance are hiking trails, town playground, skateboard park & public tennis courts. Additional tennis and golf facilities are available at nearby Chequessett Country Club. It's a short drive to the ocean beaches, fresh water ponds, The Audubon, flea market, drive-in theater, bike trail and more! Provincetown is 20 miles down the road for great whale watching, shopping and more galleries and restaurants.

              If you haven't been to the Outer Cape and Wellfleet in particular, you are in for a treat! Over 60% of the town is protected as National Seashore, so there is lots of undeveloped land for hiking, biking and bird watching. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. In places Wellfleet is only 3 miles wide with Bay beach on one side and Ocean on the other. When the tide is low you can walk way out on the bay side flats collecting shells or actually go clamming. Sit at Mayo Beach at a picnic table and watch the oystermen tending to their oyster grants. The ocean side is great for boogie boarding or even surfing at times. In the summer, the days are usually warm and the nights cool. Enjoy the beautiful stars or get a permit and have a beach bonfire! If you are lucky enough to be here for a full moon you can watch the full moon rising while sitting on the ocean beach listening to the waves crash.

              There are private steps accessing our private bay beach and a small paved area outside our cottage for using our small gas grill. There is a hose on the back of the cottage. There are also benches overlooking the bay which convert into an eating area.

              Other Activities: art galleries, shopping, dining, theater, playground

              Golf: Chequessett Yacht Club, Wellfleet Captains Course, Brewster

              Ski: sit on the beach and plan your winter vacation!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I was born in the Bronx, NY, grew up in Westchester County and moved to Wellfleet in 2000. I love Wellfleet and the Outer Cape and feel very fortunate to call it my home! I work as a Realtor for Kinlin Grover Real Estate helping both Buyers and Sellers purchase and sell their homes. I have owned this sweet little cottage since 2003 and still pinch myself when I walk into it.

              Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
              Truthfully, when I bought this property I had no idea how much I would love it. Since it was a seasonal cottage it was less expensive than a house and fit our budget. It hadn't been updated and really needed someone to give it some loving. We gutted it to the exterior walls, insulated and updated the electrical and plumbing and put it back together. This cottage is in such an amazing location both my mom and I talk about spending our entire summers there at some point. Until I can afford to do that I will be renting it out though and would love to have you come and enjoy my little slice of heaven!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Location, location, location- I still pinch myself when I am over at the cottage that I am fortunate enough to own it! Although the space is small, the fabulous location more than makes up for it. Sometimes when I am in the cottage looking out at the water I feel like I am on a cruise ship.
