              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: This property is our retirement plan, our family vacation home, and the regular vacation home for several guests, some of whom have been coming to Wellfleet for over 50 years! Sometimes there are 3 generations vacationing at Main - I love that. My wife & I have been coming to Wellfleet since the 1980's. Recently, 4 dear friends and 2 family members have bought property here, nice for us. My wife's a psychologist and I'm a real estate broker. My company is Franklin Real Estate. ( If you want to talk about Buying vacation rental property, feel free to give me a ring. I'll give you my 2 cents worth of advice - worth every penny.)

              Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet:
              Adjacent to Cape Cod National Seashore. The beauty. The quiet. The salty air. The sand between my toes. The swimming at high tide. Walking around at low tide -different every day. The soft, rhythmic sound of the waves.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Explore Cape Cod National Seashore by foot or by kayak. Sand dunes, salt marshes, & secluded beaches. Especially peaceful in the off-season, and the water is warm enough to swim in. This is living!
