Best location, comfortable cottage
"My husband and I stayed at Amy's Cottage for the first time this July. The location couldn't have been better for everything we like to do. We could easily walk (or bike) to a terrific beach on the National Seashore and easily walk to the bike trail (there is a bike rental place right there where we were able to painlessly rent bikes for the week). It was also a short drive to the center of town and all the local ponds. The cottage is not fancy, but is comfortable and private with everything we needed to our stay. I highly recommend the cottage and look forward to coming back!"

"This house was the perfect setting for a relaxing and fun vacation for myself, my wife, and three young kids. The house itself is well appointed with stunning views of Wellfleet harbor. Sunsets from the porch were beautiful; I could sit for hours watching the boats come in! Even better the tidal sandy beach just steps below was perfect for exploring and for the little ones to take a dip in the calm bay waters. Plus we were just a short walk into town over Uncle Tim's Bridge. The house was also a great launching point for exploring the National Seashore and Provincetown.
All in all, it was perfect week. All three kids asked if we could come back next year...."

"We had a magnificent three nights in this creekside garret. The thoughtfully chosen antique chairs and fainting couch were a great change from the usual mass-produced vacation chic that most rentals by the beach are awash in. The location is unbeatable: Everything in Wellfleet was in walking distance, and it was so relaxing to be able to go dinner or coffee or hop up to the library without getting in the car. And in the evenings, we could walk right across the wooden footbridge to take in the sunset, watch the tide roll in, or gawk at thousands of stars. The ocean with its majestic dunes and watchful seals was a quick car ride away, as were the wild walking trails of Great Island. The garret's kitchen was entirely adequate, and my partner, who is 6'0", was fine with the sloping ceilings.
We had many splendid meals on the trip, including enormous breakfast burritos at Box Lunch and a fine salmon at the Wicked Oyster, but the best meal was easily Blackfish in Truro--which, if memory serves, was Brenda's excellent recommendation. Speaking of which, Brenda was an excellent host--helpful at the outset and then left us to our own devices. A memorable and rejuvenating getaway!"

"My wife and I returned for two weeks this fall and again had a wonderful experience. The location is awesome, high on the bluff. You get a grest view of the bay and oyster beds. The owner is just the best. Her flower gardens are most creative and as a life time Caper knows where to go for fun, dinner or sight seeing. The cottage is wonderful for a couple with everything you need.
If you are seeking a peaceful location to watch the tide come and go, go kayaking, exploring nature or great food very near, this is perfect intimate setting."
