Wellfleet house description

Everyone loves Wellfleet and this is one of the loveliest homes available in an extraordinary location. Set high and private on one and a half acres with 375 feet of a swimming beach below, this house with its 180 degree water views of Cape Cod Bay from 5 out of 8 rooms is the perfect retreat for families ready to unwind and enjoy all the surrounding natural beauty and activities of the outer Cape. The bay beach is ideal to fish, kayak, watercraft with Wellfleet's incredible National Seashore ocean beaches, fresh water ponds, & charming downtown just a few miles away. In a private community, this house is at the end of a road with no drive by traffic, and a driveway long enough to handle a boat trailer, cars and room for kids to play. Brand new big deck too! Neighborhood is perfect for very scenic walks, bike rides and star gazing. Central air, one level living is a gem for Grandparents and kids will love the large rec area in basement with ping pong and another TV. Internet, DVD. New 55' TV in living room.


Wonderful Year Round! : Snug, heated, and cozy year round with a wood burning fireplace in the living room and captivating water views, this house is a perfect destination Spring, Fall, and Winter. You may not be inclined to go to the beaches off season, but many of Wellfleet's restaurants stay open May through October. The Wellfleet Oyster Festival in mid October is a weekend celebration with music, a road race and art and craft fair.
Any Fall or Spring weekend is an opportune time to bike the range of trails in the area, from the 22 mile Cape Cod Rail Trail, which is a paved surface with few hills going from Wellfleet all the way back to Dennis with stops in towns along the way, or for the more aggressive bikers, the Provincetown Lands Trails, a spectacular and challenging 5 mile course through hills,dunes, and wetlands. Scenic but rigorous!

Another tremendous natural resource just a few miles down the road is the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, which has 5 miles of trails offering incredible bird watching opportunities and educational programs. Because two thirds of Wellfleet is in the National Seashore, twenty square miles of it or thousands of acres have trails that ramble through pine woods, salt marshes, and towering white dunes along the shoreline, all providing the chance to discover and enter wildlife habitats. For one of the ultimate wildlife eco- trips, no one should leave the Outer Cape without having gone on a Whale Watch, which are run out of Provincetown, about 25 minutes away. Few experiences compare with seeing one of these magnificent creatures swimming and splashing right up close to the boat! Indeed, Wellfleet remains a mysterious and captivating place for both the intellectually curious and the casual beach goer.

If its more humanistic pursuits you're after, a jump in the car can take you a few miles down the road to Chequesset Yacht and Country Club, which is a fancy name for a very low key public golf course that is open mostly year round and has some nice water views from the course. Or swing over to the Beachcomber at Cahoon Hollow Beach and hear some live music, eat some famous Wellfleet oysters, and revel with the beach crowd. However you choose to spend your time in Wellfleet, you will keep a part of it with you long after you're vacation is over.

          Wellfleet is nestled within the National Seashore and is a quaint, New England historical whaling town, only about five miles wide with the Atlantic on one side and Cape Cod Bay on the other. Called the 'Art Gallery' town, Wellfleet has spurned commercialism in favor of maintaining a charming downtown filled with privately owned restaurants, galleries, boutiques, ice cream shops, live theater and a harbor with a boardwalk. It has five ocean beaches, numerous fresh water ponds, and since 61% of its land is protected in the Cape Cod National Seashore Park Wellfleet has retained an unspoiled beauty rarely found these days. Luckily for visitiors there are a multitude of ways to discover Wellfleet by renting kayaks or bikes, boarding a nearby whale watching boat, picnicking at the many beaches and bogie boarding or surfing, or strolling along the downtown streets.

          Restaurants in town range from BYOB lobster and clam shacks to New York Times and Gourmet reviewed spots.

          Other Activities: Cape Cod Bay is spread before you while you sunbath in chaise lounges or have lunch on the wraparound deck watching high above as boats drift by, sea gulls gliding the sky and hearing the tide come in. Outdoor sectional seating offers a cozy nook for conversation, reading beach books, or an afternoon nap . Later have cocktails outside while taking in the incredible panoramic 180 degree waterviews. After watching the spectacular sunset take in the millions of stars which light up the sky above. Plan your next day - there's so much to do in the area! Gorgeous Ocean Beaches, Fishing, Hiking and Biking, Downtown Strolls, Restaurants,Drive In Movie Theater, Skate Park, Regular and Mini Golf, and Arcades all within 3 miles!

          Golf: Chequessett Golf is a public gold course with waterfront views located 4 miles from our home. There is another public golf course located in Brewster which is about 45 minutes away, the Captains Golf course http://www.captainsgolfcourse.com/ .
