Wellfleet house description

This charming, historic, newly renovated Sea Captain's 5 bedroom home is a blend of the old and the new and is tucked back on the ocean side of Wellfleet's Cahoon Hollow Road. Formerly a 'bed & breakfast' and now under new ownership, the entire house has been updated, painted and renovated so your family can enjoy the charm and spaciousness of a historic home with the convenience of modern amenities.

Generously sized living room (27 x 12) and dining area with beautiful wide plank floors. Lots of great features; newly renovated 'beadboard' bathroom with new fixtures (toilet, shower, vanity) cozy den for reading or virtual remote work (wifi), all 5 bedrooms upstairs have brand new premium beds (mattresses and fresh pillows), claw foot tub in upstairs bath, new outdoor shower and new guest house (Possibility of renting if your party is larger. Home Away #3010394).

Rare opportunity to experience Wellfleet and enjoy all that this gem of a town offers - the ocean, the ponds, wonderful art galleries, awesome food, entertainment and incredible days filled with sun, surf and relaxation.

Wonderful centralized location - easy access to Wellfleet's best beaches and fresh water ponds. Great Pond is 1.5 mile and Cahoon Hollow Beach is 1.9 miles, just a bike ride away. Also located a short walk into town to Wellfleet Center via Uncle Tim's Bridge. Central location gives great access to Ocean, Pond, Bay and Bike paths.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I'm a 4th generation Summer Wellfleetian who traveled the world and discovered that there is no place like home. I love the ocean and the ponds and will always hold time spent in Wellfleet close to my heart.

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet:
This Sea Captain's Home has been our family gathering place since my grandparents purchased it pre World War II. My grandparents lived here in the 1960's and legend has it that the great seafaring Captain Jack lived here and many tall fish tales were spun and created in the reading room and library. The house operated as a Bed and Breakfast Inn from 1998 to 2011. I purchased the house in 2011 and have been bringing the glory back ever since. I love the light, the cross breezes and the sheer joy of doing good work and creating happiness. I hope that you will be able to feel our Wellfleet magic during your stay with us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Cape Cod Summer House in Wellfleet has space and privacy to accommodate multiple generations joining together for a wonderful vacation. Charming inside and out, a traditional Cape style home, ideally situated and close to restaurants, galleries, ponds and beaches. The interior is spacious and open and can accommodate a large family or friends gathering together to renew and strengthen the bonds of friendship.
