Property description

This cozy cottage is one of only 20 free standing units at the Wellfleeter and has a spectacular waterfront view of Cape Cod Bay out of a large picture window in the living room. One bedroom also has a nice water view. The cottage boasts a recently remodeled kitchen and bathroom, convenient WiFi, new flat-screen TV, washer and dryer, full basement for storage - overall very nice and clean. Private steps lead you down to a bay beach next to Mayo Beach for swimming, boating, fishing, shell fishing, or just plain relaxing!

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.

At the cottage you will find a full kitchen equipped with pots, pans,dishes, coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave, small stove/oven combo & refrigerator. The Bathroom has a shower stall, no bath tub. There is cable television, a DVD player and & wireless internet. There is a new living room furniture and flat screen TV. You will find portable fans & two portable heaters, as well as a wall heating unit in the living room. There are two bedrooms- one with a full-size bed & the other with two new twin new beds. We provide you with pillows, pillow covers, bed pads & blankets. You are responsible for providing your SHEETS, TOWELS & KITCHEN LINENS. There is a washer/dryer located in the basement.

There are private steps accessing our private bay beach and a small paved area outside our cottage for using our 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. The harbor & town pier, playground, tennis courts, skateboard park, restaurants & the Harbor Stage Company are a short walk away. Town Center is within walking distance with galleries, shops & more restaurants. For whale watches, additional dining & nightlife, Provincetown is a 20 minute drive away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife, Annmarie, and I both grew up in Massachusetts and moved to CT in 1997 for a job. We have two college age daughters. We have a summer home on the Cape in Harwich that we try to get to as much as possible. We look forward to eventually retiring to the Cape.

Why the Owner Chose South Wellfleet:
From 1993 - 2005 we rented a cottage in Wellfleet for a week for our summer vacation. For the last eight of those years we rented a cottage in the Wellfleeter. We loved it there so much that we came back year after year. In fact, we actually rented Unit 10 one summer and loved the unit. It was great every morning to look out the window and be able to see the ocean. When Unit 10 came on the market for sale we were excited to be able to purchase it.
