About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
If the water is over the causeway to the Island at high tide, stay Island-side and enjoy the quiet beaches, swim in the warm Bay waters (jumping off the bridge for a swim is fun, too!) or kayak from Deep Hole around the Island - birders will love the many herons and egrets that call the Island home; much of it is owned by the Audubon Society and is undeveloped. The Island also is a major nesting ground for endangered species of turtles, which can be found laying their eggs all over the island in early summer.
Want to really relax? Sling your hammock in the shade of the main deck, kick back with a cool drink and listen to the breeze through the pines that surround the house. Or bike the Cape Cod Rail Trail - minutes to ocean beaches - and pick up fresh local fish from the nearby market on the ride home to grill for dinner! Like oysters? Get your shellfish license and gather your own Wellfleets from the oyster beds at low tide - they don't get any fresher.
Feeling more adventurous? The art galleries and kettle ponds of Wellfleet, the restaurants and street scene of P'town and the shops of Orleans are all just minutes away. See why Cape Cod Magazine called the Island 'a unique spot with a constant breeze and the feel of the ocean in the air.'

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: David spent most of his childhood summers with his grandparents in Orleans. He is an avid blue water sailor. Julia, a yoga instructor who runs a not-for-profit social services agency, also loves the Cape and the ocean; they and their adult twin sons and daughter have spent many joyful summers in Wellfleet. Both sons have advanced degrees; one lives in England, the other in Boston. Our daughter is a sophmore in college and an equestrian. We all love animals, especially our mixed black lab, Lucy. Most of us are vegetarians.
Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
We bought this house because we have spent many years vacationing on the Cape and always dreamed of living there. When we discovered this beautiful Lt. Island house one cold and blustery April weekend, we knew it was perfect.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
New this year! Skylights over bed. See the stars. Kitchen and bath expansion and renovation! We added a luxurious swing for two outside the lower bedroom and a HOT TUB which will be connected Fall 2016. AC and new heating system and fan. 2017! The house is cozy and located on a secluded island attached to the mainland by a wooden bridge and causeway that can be under water during a very high tide, which makes it accessible yet feeling remote. Much of the island is owned by the Audubon Society- it is largely undeveloped and serves as a nesting ground for endangered turtles, which can be found very near the house, as well as a haven for many species of water fowl. Art galleries, restaurants, shops, ocean beaches and freshwater kettle ponds are all a short bike or car ride away, but we actually spend more time just enjoying the beautiful beaches on the Island. We love walking around the island in the mornings, coffee or tea in hand, when you may not see another soul - even in August!
