About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 full Bathrooms, sleeps 8. Situated on a private lane. Quiet!

In addition to the spectacular unobstructed views, you can enjoy bird watching, hiking, biking or fishing right from the front door! Even a quick cannonball off the bridge if your that way inclined.

For cyclists the main bike path is a very short ride away.

Leave it all behind as you enjoy nature at its best from the comfort of this home.

About Eileen

Our family loves the water. Boating on the bayside is very safe. Kayakers often paddle by the window (they put in at the bridge). This spot feels like you are going off-grid - even if you are not!

Why Eileen chose Wellfleet

We love this spot. We knew this was the property for us the first time we step foot on the deck taking in the views. It was spectacular even in December! Its a constantly changing view. Dolphins have been seen from deck in the past - but you have to be really lucky. Fly fishermen you can walk to a nice quite fishing area in 2 minutes.

What makes this house unique

Views, Views, Views! There's lots of benefits, if you stock the kitchen when you arrive - you really don't need to leave. Walk or cycle to Luetenant Island, there's a great beach at the end! Bring a floaty with you and drift down a snaking stream! Its kid safe. Astronomers enjoy incredible starscapes on clear cape nights - minimal light polution makes you realize just what is up there. You can walk to Route 3 in just a few minutes where you can grab an ice cream or an Italian dinner.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The view from this house is gorgeous! What a great place to stay and enjoy what Wellfleet has to offer! Rain or shine, we don't mind staying in because the windows in this house allow for unobstructed views of the water and the wildlife from the living room and dining room. You can see from the pictures; practically an entire wall of windows facing the deck which overlooks the water.

The house is clean and well furnished for entertaining. There's ample seating at the dining table and in the living room. TV and cable is available in the living room; another TV is available downstairs for kids to use for playing video games. A/C is available but we prefer the fresh ocean air via opening the windows and sliding door which are all equipped with screens to keep bugs out. The kitchen is well equipped; and all appliances (including dishwasher, washer and dryer) are in good working order.

The location is convenient to restaurants, shops, and grocery stores.

Heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this home twice: the first time for a week, and the second time for two weeks. I have been vacationing at the Cape since 1985, and have rented in Dennis, Yarmouth, and Wellfleet, and can unequivocally say that this home has it all: location, panoramic views, comfort, and accommodations. Whether relaxing on the spacious deck while BBQing pizzas, entertaining friends with a New England Clambake in the dining area, napping in the family room, or catching a quiet moment in the master bedroom, I always felt completely satisfied. The view of the marsh is breathtaking, access to local markets is extremely convenient, and the immediacy of the restaurants and beaches of Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet, make it one of the best vacation spots I’ve ever enjoyed. I distinctly remember sleeping more soundly at this house. My kids loved kayaking in the marsh and flying kites on the sandy path next to the marsh. The owners are very friendly and helpful. What else could I ask for except the deed?

Good, but not great

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful, secluded location. Gorgeous views, easy access to everything Wellfleet offers. The upstairs is well-laid out with a clean look- lots of IKEA furniture, but pleasantly presented. Nicely equipped kitchen and array of books, toys, and games for kids and adults. Nice air conditioner that keeps it cool up here, even with all of the windows.

Now, the drawbacks: the house is upside-down, with 3 bedrooms on a lower level. I would have expected it to be cool, but it was not. Even with fans, it was pretty stifling, and led to poor sleep for kids and adults. Also, none of the downstairs rooms had shades covering all of their windows, and there were none at all in the kids' room.

I'd love to stay here again, but wouldn't unless these issues are addressed.

Owner's Response: I am surprised with this review, the listing does indicate that air-condition is on the main floor. Bedrooms below are equipped with fans. When the air was installed, the installer was not able to add air in the lower level because of the crawl space height. Many homes in the area not fully air-conditioned. I recommend leaving the sliding doors upstairs open and also leaving the front door open. Both have been installed with extra fine bug-free screens. This creates enough cross-ventilation to cool down the entire house. Since the kids room windows are under the deck (covered over head), we did not install blinds. This house was very dark when we purchased it, we have designed the interior to capitalize on the wonderful light that the location provides. We have several families that return yearly, we also use the house ourselves, and have never had this issue. Very few select spots in Wellfleet have the kind of views this location offers.

Great View; Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here the last couple of summers and look forward to coming back. The view is amazing! The marsh is ever changing as the tide comes in and out; and the sun casts varying light on the landscape.

The house is conveniently located close to restaurants and beaches. The house is clean, well laid out, and nicely furnished. Since ours is a family that enjoys food and cooking, the well-appointed kitchen and convenient proximity to the grocery store makes for a great spot for entertaining! We definitely made full use of the gas grill and the deck.
