The Real Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

The light, the light, the light…..

Wellfleet is known for its golden light, and this house captures it more beautifully than any I’ve seen on the outer cape – and I have seen many!

It doesn’t hurt that all the wood is honey colored and that the shadows dance across the light colored walls and cathedral ceiling.

Another thing I loved was the quite… The wind going through the trees is just lovely, and it’s so nice to wake up, look out the windows and see the trees swaying…. No traffic, no noise – just the breeze and nature sounds.

This space and location has three beautiful elements; it feels like you’ve found a haven in the woods; but if you stroll to the end of the entry lane, and cross the narrow Road (Gull Pond Road), you can find your way to the kettle ponds.

(leave early while there’s still lots of light, so you can get lost….)

They all remind me so much of Walden Pond.

It’s little wonder that Thoreau found such inspiration down these same laneways….

Finally, you can take a cycle to the beach…..

The magic three: woods, lakes, beaches….

I came to Wellfleet as a musician looking for inspiration and did my best work in this house. This is what people call the “real” Cape. Artists gather here because of the golden light, but creative folks of every ilk seem to find something really special here too.

However, being on the “real” cape may include having to settle for a tiny dimly-lit, over-priced “saltbox.”

That’s why I was so delighted with this house – it’s new, beautifully equipped and spotless with tons of room - airy and light….

The owner is a long-time Wellfleet resident and will happily share his love of this land with you, and just about anything else for that matter, including his home-grown tomatoes.

Wellfleet is its own very special place, and this haven in the woods is as good as Wellfleet gets.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Nicely laid out and maintained house, convenient to Wellfleet - comfortably accommodates big groups with a nice large common area for socializing. It's reached via a hilly dirt road, so just be sure your vehicle can manage that. Also (like most Cape houses) linens are not included.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Pam. Just wanted to point out that we had two flash floods this summer which effected our driveway. In fifteen years of renting we have never had an issue with any car on our driveway.

Beautiful house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we've looked for in a Cape Cod vacation. We have always loved Gull Pond on previous trips to Wellfleet and were delighted to stay in this beautiful house last month. The property is private and quiet and the house was comfortable and immaculate. The house is close to all our favorite restaurants and take out places. Our family enjoyed paddleboarding on Gull Pond through Funseekers, and the proximity to the ocean beaches. There is plenty of space in the house to spread out and a lovely deck to enjoy. We can't wait to come back next year. Thanks, Eric.

Perfect Wellfleet getaway for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house in July 2016. It has a great layout, lots of open space and great sunlight. The location is ideal - near beaches and ponds, as well as town, and so very little need to spend time on Route 6. The deck is ideal for relaxing and grilling at the end of a fun/sun-filled day. It really has everything you need, and it accommodated 2 families of four extremely well. Highly recommend!

Lovely Vacation House in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house in Wellfleet a few weeks ago, and had a very relaxing time. It is very spacious, bright, and clean, and it fit our 2 families perfectly. There is a well-equipped kitchen, and a great porch for grilling and eating meals. The house is very secluded and quiet; it's on a dirt road in the woods. All of the gorgeous beaches of Wellfleet are nearby, including the ponds. You can get a beach pass for the week, which gets you into practically all of the Wellfleet beaches. I would definitely recommend getting baked goods at PB Boulangerie, drinks at the Beachcomber, and eating as many oysters as you can!

Perfectly sized for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect base camp for a July family vacation. After searching high and low for a house large enough to accommodate two infants/toddlers, three parents, and two grandparents, we settled on Eric's house. This turned out to be a great decision: the house was modern, clean, and well kept, and was just the right size for keeping three generations together while still giving everyone their space.

The location is perfect, about three minutes by car from Gull Pond, ten minutes from Newcomb Hollow Beach, and five minutes from the center of Wellfleet. Literally, if I'd looked at a map and picked the perfect spot for a Wellfleet house, I would've picked this spot exactly. It's on the north end of Wellfleet, which is also means your day trips to Provincetown will be fifteen minutes shorter -- a huge plus when you're driving back sunburned and hungry and raring for a lobster roll. Speaking of lobster rolls, the house is super close to both Moby Dick's and PJ's, so you never have to go longer than five minutes without a hunk of juicy lobster tail if you don't want to.

The house doesn't have any spectacular seaside or harbor views, but it's pleasant and quiet, and it's set in the woods, so if you're lucky you'll get to see the local wild turkeys and even a fox going about their business. The kitchen is fully stocked and there's a propane grill on the deck that'll make short work of a burger or a tuna steak.

Eric, the owner, lives nearby (at least during the summers), and is a gracious and pleasant host. He showed us around, answered questions, and stopped by occasionally to say hi, but also gave us our space. He was easy to communicate with and gave us our entire safety deposit back quickly and without any fuss.

If you're looking to spend some time enjoying all Wellfleet has to offer, this place is for you! It worked out great for us, and if we can rally the whole family again, we'll definitely be staying here.
