South Wellfleet house description

Nicely appointed and well-maintained 2BR house situated on a half-acre lot in a quiet, wooded setting one block from paved bike path (CC Rail Trail). The house is walking distance to Audubon wildlife sanctuary, movie theatres, fruit & vegetable stand, deli, and weekend flea market. Only minutes by car or bicycle to Cape Cod National Seashore, Cape Cod Bay, and freshwater “kettle” ponds.

Features a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, full bath, extra outdoor shower (enclosed), and clean full basement with laundry and ping pong table. Other amenities include telephone, 2 TVs (cable), VCR & DVD player, high speed wireless internet service, outdoor deck with picnic table and chairs, barbecue grill, and spacious fenced-in back yard with hammock. Also, assorted beach gear (beach chairs, umbrellas, floats, toys, etc.) are available for guests' use. Street is a dead-end dirt lane. Yard and street are safe for young children, while location is perfect for active families.


More to Do: A large flea market sets up each Thurs-Sun at the Wellfleet Drive-In Theater/Multiplex--only a 5 minute walk from the cottage; haggle with the vendors by day, and catch a movie at night. A great fruit and vegetable stand is right down the lane, and around the corner an excellent and favorably priced deli/convenience store -- great for essentials, subs, and live lobsters at reasonable prices.

Wellfleet Center is a treasure trove of art galleries, and craft and antiques shops; while bucolic Truro offers timeless landscapes and ocean vistas, plus excellent restaurants. Tour the Truro Vineyards winery and taste the product. Historic Provincetown offers unique shops, excellent restaurants, and daily whale watching tours, amidst the bohemian flavor of this artists community.

Boating and Fishing: It goes without saying that the Outer Cape is a paradise for boaters and fishermen. Several bait and tackle shops are close by for gear, bait, and advice. Charter fishing boats leave from the harbors in Wellfleet, Orleans and Provincetown. You can be successful surf casting for stripers and blues from any of the ocean beaches, and from Great Island in Wellfleet. Gull pond in Wellfleet is stocked with trout and bass (in summer arrive at dawn and ply the deep holes in the middle of the pond).

Rental of canoes, kayaks, sailboats, windsurfers, etc. is available and affordable in Wellfleet and Orleans, and
on-site at Gull Pond in Wellfleet.

Sports Fans: Golfers should try Checquesset Neck and Highland Links golf courses in Wellfleet and Truro, respectively. Both offer spectacular water views.

The Cape Cod Baseball League features the nation's best college players and future major leaguers. Catch the Orleans Cardinals as they go up against teams from Dennis, Yarmouth, Chatham, etc. a couple of nights a week at Eldredge Field in Orleans. Rabid Red Sox and Yankee fans can savor the rivalry on the large screen TV's at Parker's Shipwreck Restaurant & Sports Bar, a mile south on Rt. 6.

                      Equally close are two large 'kettle' ponds in Wellfleet. The ponds make for a refreshing change of pace from salt water and feature gentle freshwater swimming areas popular with families, as well as canoeing, sailing, and windsurfing.

                      The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is but a 5 minute walk down the lane and across Rt. 6. Experience the flora and fauna of the salt marsh on foot or via guided canoe or kayak tours. Walk to Audubon wildlife sanctuary, flea market, & multiplex cinemas.

                      Golf: Golfers should try Checquesset Neck and Highland Links golf courses in Wellfleet and Truro, respectively. Both offer spectacular water views.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Mary and Steve are healthcare professionals and parents of three young adult children living in the greater metropolitan New York area. We enjoy hosting other families at our home in Wellfleet during the summer months. We make use of the property ourselves in the spring and fall.

                      Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
                      We had been vacationing on the Cape for many years before purchasing this property in 2000. Wellfleet was always our favorite destination because of it's quiet charm and relatively secluded bay and ocean beaches. The kettle ponds, such as Gull Pond, were favorite swimming spots when our kids were young, and the proximity of the house to the CC Rail Trail bike path was a real draw. We spent many hours traveling by bike either north to the General Store or Marconi beach, or south to Arnold's Restaurant for milkshakes or mini-golf.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      While not directly on the beach, the house is conveniently located near the paved CC Rail Trail bike path, Audubon sanctuary, flea market and cinemas, and several wonderful shops and restaurants. In many respects, this makes it an ideal location for active families. Also, you will enjoy the privacy afforded by our dead-end street and wooded half-acre lot. As your hosts we enjoy being responsive our guests' needs so that you will have a carefree vacation. We retain the services of a caretaker in Wellfleet who can respond quickly to help out with any contingency. We have made sure that the house and yard are very well equipped, both for your use and ours.
