Quaint, quiet, and private spot to enjoy to enjoy a week in Wellfleet!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for a week leading up to a wedding of a friends. We had several couples staying here and found it to be just great for what we wanted! Two bedrooms are upstairs and 2 are downstairs in the basement but only 1 only one has an actual door ( the other is more of an open tiled den room with full sized beds. Better for kids then couples.) The house was clean and quiet but with plenty of places to sleep, lounge, and dine as a group. It had air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms but we nights were cool enough that we didn't even need to turn them on. We cooked up a storm and found most of the kitchen tools needed to make some amazing meals in the house and out on the grill. The laundry room was such a treat for us as we were able to clean all our towels and clothes before we returned headed back to our city apartments. We brought our bikes up with us and found it safe enough to leave them in the yard at night and when we were not at the house. It is a great location for active cyclist that like to do some fun hilly treks during the day. Warning: Do not attempt to bike at night in Wellfleet as there are no street lights in most of the town and very steep hills with tons of blind spots that will prevent cars from seeing you in the dark.

Beyond hanging in the house we trekked out into town and to many local beaches and swimming holes. The house is only 6 min drive to the main drag of Wellfleet which has a solid little grocery stores, a decent wine shop/liquor store, also an awesome fish market (which sells great local fruits and vegetables). Beaches and ponds are 10-20 min drive on average. You will absolutely need to get a beach parking ticket for the week for $80 or else you will receive and expensive ticket. (our friend learned the hard way).

Also I like to mention that the owner Allison is very nice, helpful, and responsive despite living far from MA. She was a pleasure to communicate and coordinate with. We would definitely consider renting this house again if we plan another group vacation in Wellfleet.

Wonderful home and perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We (four adults, four children) loved this home. Great layout for two families, especially teenagers. Entrance is on main floor, cute porch off kitchen, nice deck off living room, half bath on this floor. Two bedrooms upstairs with full bath, two bedrooms downstairs with full bath, outdoor shower. Kitchen is open with eating area, open to dining room that flows to living room and deck. Would recommend to all. Walk to town is vigorous (there are some hills both directions) but doable. We were more likely to walk one way and get a ride one way. Great spot for bikes, close to back road to Truro that is a nice bike ride. Owners are responsive and thoughtful. Lots of great restaurants in Wellfleet. 15-20 minute walk to harbor for Mac's seafood, the Pearl, the Bookstore, etc.. About same walk to Wellfleet center. Must disclose that walking back from harbor is mostly uphill. Short drive to ocean beaches and the ponds (freshwater and delightful).

Great time in Wellfleet

  • 4 of 5

We had a perfect week on the Cape and this private spacious home had everything we needed and more. With the bedrooms being as spread out as they were it was perfect for multiple families vacatioining together. There was plenty of room for privacy, but large airy spacious for us all to congregate. There were also many nice outdoor spaces to relax and enjoy the beautiful Cape breezes. The only drawback might be the lack of a yard (if you have small children).The house was just a short drive into town (less than 5 minutes) and would also be a nice walk.

Wellfleet has beautiful ponds and beaches plus many art galleries. There are wonderful running, biking or hiking trails right from the house. Great Island is 2 miles away down a beautiful trail, Duck Harbor, the same distance down a different trail through the woods. Very quiet, restful location, with views of nature from every window.
