Wellfleet house description

View Additional Photos:

Nestled in a grassy dune overlooking one of the most exquisite swimming beaches on Cape Cod Bay, this charming all-season cottage is the perfect retreat for those who long for the pure simplicity of casual beach living. Bright, airy interior, French doors, large over sized windows and beamed cathedral ceilings complement an eclectic mix of comfortable furnishings. Conveniences include washer/dryer, dishwasher and fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy glorious, unobstructed views of surf, sand, and the dramatically changing cape light. Perfect for nature lovers, writers, artists, and children; this is a peaceful sanctuary where curtains flutter softly in the breeze, flower boxes overflow with brilliant color, and endless summer afternoons can be spent just steps from your front door, exploring the water's edge.

Windy Knoll: Many of our guests enjoy waking to the early morning peacefulness of radiant skies and gently rolling tides. Revel in a quiet morning swim, a tranquil beach meditation, or an unhurried walk along the shore as ebbing currents slowly reveal the elemental beauty of Wellfleet’s magnificent tidal flats. No need to pack the car for distant beaches when you reside at water’s edge - just sit back and watch the noontime sun bring circles of vividly colored umbrellas, picnic baskets, and the joyful sounds of laughter. Children will find plenty of new friends while enjoying endless hours searching for seashells, turtles, and hermit crabs living within the warm tidal pools. Spend your days swimming, kayaking, windsurfing …or just relaxing. As night falls, relax with soothing rain-shower under the stars, then cuddle up on the waterside deck, amid the flicker of candles, and enjoy the moonlight gently shimmering on the bay.

Wellfleet: Meander through the festive town of Wellfleet and you’ll discover a multitude of interesting art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Fishing excursions and sailing lessons are available at the Pier. Rent boats, kite/surf boards, fishing poles, kayaks, bikes, etc. Golf or sail at Chequessett Yacht and Country Club. Catch some family laughter at the weekly square dance on the pier, or check out the books and cultural events at the Wellfleet Library. Spend an evening at the Wellfleet Drive-In, or discover the perfect treasure at the flea market. Explore the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Catch Bluefish, Striped Bass, or go deep-sea Tuna fishing. Experience early morning yoga classes on the beach, or stop by the gym for a quick work out. Go bird watching ~ whale-watching ~ seal watching. Artistic expression is everywhere! There are always musical, theatrical, or children’s events happening both here in Wellfleet as well as in many other towns on the Cape.

                  Windy Knoll is located directly on the sandy shores of Cape Cod Bay in an area of Wellfleet known as Indian Neck. Use your private beach stairs to access the warm, calm waters of this amazingly expansive beach. Search for famous Wellfleet oysters, walk for miles, relax in beach chairs, or launch your kayak from the house. Ours is considered a private beach, but we are located adjacent to the public area of Burton Baker Beach which means children of all ages will have a multitude of playmates to meet as they explore the warm waters and abundant sea life. The bustling little town of Wellfleet, as well as the incredibly vibrant ocean beaches are all within a few minutes away.
