South Wellfleet house description

Nothing but the sound of the wind in the pines and the birds will greet you when you arrive at our quaint, well decorated and spacious three bedroom two bathroom house located on Lieutenant Island in South Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Our house is on a wooded lot just a few minutes from the beaches on the island and a short drive from the Cape Cod National Seashore and all the area has to offer. Our house is fully furnished, meticulously cleaned and includes all expected household items. There is even an outdoor enclosed shower with hot and cold water for when you all come home from the beach!!

Words about Wellfleet: Wellfleet is the home of the Cape Cod National Seashore headquarters building as well as a 1,000 acre Massachusetts Audubon Society Wildlife Sanctuary. Some of Cape Cod's finest ocean and bay side beaches are found in Wellfleet. The town is also well-known for its plentiful supply of shellfish, including the famous 'Wellfleet Oyster'. In Wellfleet you can find numerous beautiful clear spring-fed, ponds, fine art galleries, shops, restaurants and magnificent Wellfleet Harbor offering a constantly changing panorama of sail boats, motor yachts, sport fishing boats and trawlers. Wellfleet is an extremely diverse community with an extraordinary nautical history.

The Ocean Beaches: Towering cliffs carved into sand dunes overlook the fine sand beaches along the Atlantic side of Cape Cod. As the tide comes in, the strong waves provide hours of entertainment for swimmers and surfers. As the water recedes, it leaves behind colorful rocks and seashells for the beachcomber. This area was designated as the Cape Cod National Seashore in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy. Although the 40-mile uninterrupted stretch of beach is by far the main attraction, the Cape Cod National Seashore also includes hiking and biking trails, marshes, fresh and salt water ponds, forests, historic structures, and lighthouses. Most Cape Cod National Seashore ocean beaches are within 5 miles of Lieutenant Island.

The Bay Beaches: Great Island is a protected ecosystem and a bay side Wellfleet treasure. Great Island was the center of marine activity in Wellfleet during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, walking trails wind between sand dunes and tidal salt marshes to the bay. Great Island is very visible from both beaches on Lieutenant Island and is accessible by boat from the island. It is about a 10 minute drive from the island and parking is available. No matter how you get there bring plenty of sun screen and wear sneakers! You can walk way out on the dunes to Jeremy Point to enjoy the sun and the solitude but pay attention to the tide!

Duck Harbor Beach is the only Wellfleet Bay Beach that is not located directly on Wellfleet Harbor. Calm, warm waters, a beautiful view, and gentle dunes make this a great beach for families with small children and everyone else too! Parking and bathroom facilities are available.

          Other Amenities

              • Most of Lieutenant Island is undeveloped marshland owned by the Massachusetts Audubon Society and Wellfleet Conservation Trust. This has kept the Island a very private, quiet and tranquil place. There are two almost private beaches on the Island. The east beach is a five minute walk from the house and fronts Loagy Bay. It is a great launching point for kayaking or just watching the birds and fish. The west beach is a ten minute walk from the house that fronts Cape Cod Bay and offers panoramic views of the bay and shore line from Plymouth to Provincetown. You can drive to either beach and parking is available. Lieutenant Island is a kayaker’s paradise. Large tidal salt marshes around and on the island offer many estuaries for exploring. Hiking trails wind through the marshes to remote beaches where diamondback sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs and horseshoe crabs wait for the evening of the first full moon in the spring to mate and start their next generation....moreless
