South Wellfleet cottage description

'Foote Rest Cottage' - A 10 min walk to miles of ocean beaches/sand dunes, this renovated 1940's Cape, located in the National Seashore sits on a large wooded lot. Large, L-shaped LR/DR area features cathedral ceiling, skylights, knotty pine paneling, ceiling fan, Scandavian wood burning fireplace/stove. Spacious, bright eat-in kitchen w/ table and bar; kitchen and sleeping BR/den open onto sunny deck through sliding glass doors. A second deck overlooks mature forest and a creek flowing through the back of this secluded property. In front, a country road connects to National Seashore Park trails with wildlife and a very rare White CedarTree preserve and Marconi site.
A 1/2 mi walk in the other direction gives you direct access to the Bicycle Rail Trail and General Store/ Post Office. Avoid Rte 6 traffic by taking Ocean View Drive into town, harbor, or glacier ponds for a swim or kayaking. Cottage is only 1/2 hr drive to Provincetown for nightlife and terrific whale watching.

Guests Say: Guests say they like our Foote Rest Cottage because it is private, tranquil, near the ocean, bike path Rail Trail, and General Store -- all within walking distance. Nestled in the National Seashore, it's two decks are private, and sunny. While relaxing on the back deck, one can hear birds chirp and watch wild turkeys fly over the trees, and in July, can eat blueberries from the bushes off the back deck.

The bunk room downstairs allows for a separate area for teenagers to play music while away from earshot of adults. The cottage sits on the original Wireless Road (now private) to the Marconi Station site and one can have their own private walk to the Marconi site and through the rare White Cedar Swamp Trail.
