Location is everything for a great vacation. Stay at this cool (central A/C) and comfortable home *within* the National Seashore in Wellfleet. Located on a private road off Ocean View drive which runs along the Atlantic Ocean. Our road leads to a private path (for residents and guests) to LeCount Hollow Beach. Additionally, Cahoon Hollow Beach and Beachcomber is about a mile down Ocean View Drive (walkable, drive, bike or take the free shuttle).
As our previous guest reviews suggest, our beach house is in a wonderful location. Lecount Hollow (also referred to as McGuires Landing) and the other National Seashore ocean beaches (Lecounts, White Crest, Cahoon Hollow and Newcomb Hollow) are the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod and are all located off Oceanview Drive. Other location attractions include a nearby 27 mile bike trail, close access to the other ocean beaches, several fresh water kettle ponds and bayside beaches. We are also about a 5-10 minute drive to the town center and harbor. This great area has always attracted families and friends escaping the rigors of real life. Go home refreshed.
The house itself is one of only ~300 within the National Seashore Park. It sleeps 7. We have 2 queens and 2 twin beds. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor (queen and full) and the twins are on the second level. We also have a rollout for an overnight guest. There are 2 full bathrooms as well as an enclosed outside shower.
There is spacious living room and eat in kitchen. Note that we are upgrading for 2015 with new cabinets and other updates to make even more comfortable and attractive.
The shady, natural patio/yard is a unique feature of the house. It offers a quiet place to relax and have a cocktail or eat outside with family and friends. In the afternoon it is a shady oasis after a hot day at the beach.
At night, walk or drive to the Beachcomber (thebeachcomber.com) Restaurant/Night Club which features nightly live bands and soloists from all musical genres (~1 mile down Ocean View Drive) or have a cocktail in their beachside bar 'apres beach'.
You never need to leave the area but, for the adventurous, there are many great restaurants, art galleries, golf, mini-golf, drive-in theatre, live theatre and other attractions in Wellfleet and the surrounding towns (P-Town, Truro or Orleans). Provincetown offers a vibrant downtown area which is a *must* visit about 20 minutes away. There is also a variety of night options in Provincetown.
Jog or bike along Ocean View Drive. Fish, swim or relax on the beach or on your patio steps from the Atlantic. Overall, get ready for an amazing, fun and exciting summer getaway with friends, family and the people of LeCount Hollow Beach and Wellfleet! You will not be disappointed.
