Wellfleet cottage description

Enjoy the gentle waves, warm, clean water, and no riptides to worry about at Mayo Beach Wellfleet. High tide - it's time to swim. Low tide - time to explore. Fantastic location for young children - so much to discover! Located on a little bluff at the western end of Mayo Beach in beautiful Wellfleet, a TripAdvisor top 10 U.S. Beach, the only one in New England. WALK TO MAYO BEACH IN LESS THAN A MINUTE. South-facing, quiet, beautiful, and not crowded like other parts of Cape Cod - you'll be glad you chose this beach location.
Make beautiful memories.
The “Yardarm” cottage, a 3 bedroom, recently renovated Cape Cod cottage takes you back in time while providing the comforts of today. Located at the western end of Mayo Beach in beautiful Wellfleet, the Yardarm boasts all new appliances, beds, kitchen, and furnishings. Enjoy the swivel chairs that overlook the views of Great Island and the sunsets that Wellfleet is famous for. With two water view bedrooms and one private bedroom, everyone has ample room to spread out. Imagine lying in bed, looking out on the water, a new temperpedic mattresses beneath you... you'll think you're in heaven. A full size bath with tub as well as the outdoor shower ensures no waiting to get the sand off your toes. Storage shed for your bikes. Newly added awnings bring additional comfort along with the sea breeze that flows up the dune.

Best of all, you are less than a minute's walk to Mayo Beach. Just grab your beach towel and go. Easy to return to your cottage for lunch. Sit outside the Yardarm with a good book and enjoy the sounds of the ocean lapping on the shore.

Take an easy walk to the Pier and catch a ride on a fishing boat or a sunset sailing tour. Dine on Mac’s famous fried clams, local seafood and ice cream, or the Bookstore, the Pearl, restaurants.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: I am the rental agent for this property. I have other vacation property that I either own, or do the rentals for. I'm a real estate broker in the Boston area. My specialty is investment real estate. My sons are grown and I'm looking forward to having grandchildren, taking them to Wellfleet. Our whole extended family LOVES it here. We've vacationed other parts of Cape Cod but nothing beats Wellfleet. We've been fortunate - some of our friends and family members have purchased vacation homes in Wellfleet. The location of Yardarm is fantastic - I've stayed there with my my wife. Walk about 40 steps and your at the beach - a Cape Cod National Seashore beach. If your schedule permits, coming in May, June, September or October is a great money saver. Always a nice sea breeze. Peaceful. Beautiful. When I'm in Wellfleet I say to my wife 'This is living!'

Why Wellfleet:
Buying in Wellfleet is an easy decision. It's the best of Cape Cod. Yardarm is set back from Kendrick Street on a little bluff. This gives it a full view of the water, with some privacy from the street and other cottages.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Late afternoon is particularly beautiful at the beach by Yardarm, and inside Yardarm cottage. The swimming is really fantastic - not too cold, gentle waves. At night you can hear the water lapping on the beach. The western end of Mayo Beach where Yardarm is - it's very quiet, there's no public parking there. Calm, salty, breezy. The Yardarm was tastefully renovated with new furniture, new beds, a new kitchen... Drive, sail, kayak, swim, or walk to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Walk to the historic town center of Wellfleet - 1 mile. • Walk to Wellfleet Pier - a 10 minute walk. At Wellfleet Pier there are 3 restaurants, a seafood market, a walk-up window serving burgers, fried clams & ice cream with picnic tables by the water, sailboats to rent, fishing boat excursions, used books, an art gallery, square dancing, and W.H.A.T. - Wellfleet's live theatre. • Walk to a playground with a tot area, swings, a skateboard park, a frisbee field, and tennis. About 40 steps to naturally clean Mayo Beach. Gentle waves, relatively warm water. No riptides to worry about. Great for swimming, boating, collecting shells, exploring and relaxing. • A mile to Wellfleet's seaside golf course - Chequessett Yacht & Country Club. • Wellfleet's big wave ocean beaches and dramatic sand cliffs are 5 miles away. The BEST place for kids. Explore the adjacent Cape Cod National Seashore, walking trails, listen to the shore birds, go sailing, kayaking, collect shells, swim, relax, at night - listen to the waves lapping on the beach.
