Recent Wellfleet reviews
19th Century charm with 21st Century conveniences
"Five stars for three categories.
SITE. Tne VRNO photo doesn't do justice to this house and setting. It's what was called a Greek Revival when it was built, probably about 1830, the last house on Old Pier Road. That means it is quiet, a two-minute walk to the cove beach, which feels like a private beach and yet is onlhy a couple of miles from Wellfleet Center. Our dog loved wandering through the tall stands of beach grass along the tidal flats.
HOUSE. The house is remarkably equipped. Paper punch? Check. Scrabble? Check. First
Aid kit? Check. LED bulbs? Check. We couldn't think of a thing that isn't supplied. That's also true for virtual things: wifi worked perfectly (except during a brief, dramatic storm) and so did premium cable on big screen TV in the LR. And Nick Nicholson, the landlord, went out of his way to reassure us about the storm -- and about any other questions.
LOCATION. Wellfleet is large enough to include almost any necessary facility, including a pharmacy and a vet. We liked playing tourist on the shopping streets there -- and were pleased to do more of that on the short, beautiful drive to Provincetown.
There were two of us for most of the week but two children and their two boys came for a couple of nights, comfortable in two addtional bedrooms. They want to come back. So do we.

Fabulous beach cottage - excellent family vacation!
"The charming cottage is beautifully decorated and well-appointed: simple, uncluttered, well-cared-for. The real draw, however, is the location in the small cottage community just steps from a beautiful bay beach. The huge tides make for a changing beach scene, and the kids just love to hunt for hermit crabs and fish in the little backwater; the water is warm enough to enjoy swimming in; and every year we seem to meet wonderful people -- who return repeatedly, forming a great community. Totally relaxing, while having lots to do -- the perfect vacation."

"What more can we say? Our stay at the garret was very special. The artistic furnishings in the garret provided a beautiful, warm, welcoming feeling. Brenda, our gracious host was most welcoming upon our arrival. She provided us with a wealth of information about the town including food recommendations, history, etc. (all were accurate). The location of the home is absolutely beautiful and it is located at the foot of an historic footbridge that leads to a lovely trail for hiking and cycling. Convenience is the key phrase for the location of the garret. You can walk easily to local restaurants and shops. Beautiful sunsets abound in this location. We hope to return to this beautiful place again and again."

"We had a wonderful stay at this rental property. The house was very clean and well kept. The character of the home was amazing. The spiral staircase and the wide plank flooring in older section of the house was very nice. We spent a lot of our time in the screened in porch which had plenty of room for everyone. The long lane back to the property felt like you were traveling back into time. It was very secluded and yet it was just minutes to downtown Wellfleet. The house was very close to everything we wanted to do in Wellfleet and was it is centrally located on the cape so you can explore all of Cape Cod. The ocean beaches were about 10 minutes away and they were truly breathtaking. Duck Beach on the bay side is a must visit and the sunset never seems to end. It was really cool to see seals in the ocean and in the bay. Cape Cod was awesome and is a must see !!!"
