About Claudia Cope

My Father, Peter Cope, built this home from hand with his many boat building skills. He based it on his boyhood memories of a summer home his grandfather had built in 1907 on the Pocano Lake Preserve. His aim was to create a home where family gathered to play and eat and laugh together.

Claudia Cope purchased this house in 1983

Why Claudia Cope chose Wellfleet

The house has a warm and cozy feeling of post and beam and natural wood while accommodating up to nine people. It is convenient to all the natural beauty that Wellfleet has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The wrap around deck is a wonderful place to enjoy cocktails and dinner while watching a summer sunset

This home has a peaceful sense of place!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent the last 2 summers at this marvelous, roomy, and well thought out Wellfleet home. It is very close to everything. It is a short drive in to town, or over to the kettle ponds, and the beaches. The kitchen is well stocked, the living room invites lingering, and the 5 bedrooms each have their own vibe. Ample parking, and decks off each bedroom, make this a great spot for friends, and family to enjoy everything Wellfleet has to offer.

Wonderful week in lovely, unique home.

  • 5 of 5


Family of four plus guest had a wonderful time in this spacious, airy home. Although we had perfect weather, a rainy day wouldn't have been a problem as due to the outstandingly creative and thoughtful design of the house, you feel like you are outside when you are inside! The queen bed loft is beautiful -if you are an early riser (I am) to be awoken by the sun rising through skylights after falling asleep with the stars in sight overhead is really amazing. Bedrooms are comfortable. The bathroom is beautiful and the kitchen is amply stocked with cookware, plates, herbs and spices. Gardens around the house are lovely. Although the house is close to route 6 you never feel aware of it as the house is surrounded by large trees and greenery. But when you need to go somewhere it's convenient.

Tons of books to read and ping-pong table in basement was a huge hit with my kids. The location is one of the nicest in Wellfleet , especially if you like a bike ride or modest walk to beach (you can walk to Omaha Beach off King Phillip-about 2/3 mile, Burton Baker about a mile, and the larger Indian Neck with parking about 2 miles from the house). It's super easy to drive to Lecount Hollow (ocean) which is across route 6 - watch the seals as the sun goes down over the Atlantic.

We could not have hoped for a more beautiful place to enjoy the most special Cape

Wonderful house! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house with woodwork craftsmanship that even impressed my carpenter husband! Open floor plan with private bedrooms was perfect for our party of 7 adults aged 21 - 71. Absolutely loved the deck access from bedrooms. Air circulation was awesome for cape cod houses, no AC necessary! Outdoor shower worked great! Great bonus that the deck is gated off which was perfect for our dogs to be able to enjoy the outside without having to be tied up. Parking for 5 cars too! Will definitely be back! Thank you Claudia!

Very comfortable and pleasant house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and very comfortable house. Clean and well equiped, you can tell the owners love their house and want to keep it in good condition for many more years. Nice place either for family gathering or calm vacations. Well located and close to Wellfleet center and beaches.

We loved it for our summer vacations... Must be just as nice in fall season!

Great house for a relaxed cape vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We were a group of 4 adults and 5 children and found this to be a great place. The house is very well equiped with up to date appliances and everything you need for any size group. We were concerned about only one bathroom but we did not find it to be an issue at all! The house was easy to maintain and had a great relaxing feel. We enjoyed the large deck and large living area inside as well. This house is a great place for a relaxing cape experience!There is only parking for two cars in the drive but you can use the garage if needed.
