The Main House is a full-sized home, roomy for large families or groups.
Our beautiful beach is adjacent to the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Great beach for swimming, kayaking, sailing, exploring, reading, writing, collecting sea shells and relaxing. Gentle waves, no riptides to worry about, tidal , naturally clean, wonderful for small children.
AHHH the SEA!
Please note that occupancy is limited to 11 people during the summer, 13 allowed off-season.

Walking distance to Wellfleet's seaside golf course. 1 mile to the historic village of Wellfleet - restaurants, shops, fresh local seafood, organic produce, and art galleries. Walk down the beach to Wellfleet Pier. At the Pier - go on a fishing excursion, rent a sailboat, order cooked lobsters for dinner at Mac's, go to a show at Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theater (W.H.A.T.).
Walk to a tot park playground with tennis courts, basketball, a frisbee field, swings, and a skate board park. Wednesday night there's square dancing at the Pier.

Our family vacation home is spacious for 1 family, can comfortably accommodate an extended family, 2 families, or groups of friends with privacy. Excellent for family reunions and work retreats.

Beach your kayak and walk along miles of secluded beach. Welcome to Cape Cod National Seashore. Explore, listen to the sea gulls, the waves, relax... this moment perfect.
There's a walking trail upland - follow the signs to the old tavern site - from the 1700s.

Adventurous? Continue kayaking along the edge of Great Island and try to reach Jeremy Point. Lotion up! It's submerged except at low tide. Return to Main with the wind and waves at your back. Enjoy a cold beverage and relay your tale of high sea adventure with enthusiasm and embellishment.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: This property is our family vacation home, and the regular vacation home for various repeat guests, some of whom have been coming to Wellfleet for over 50 years! Sometimes there are 4 generations vacationing at Main - I love that. My wife & I have been coming to Wellfleet since the 1980's. Recently, 4 dear friends and 2 family members have bought property here - so nice for us. My wife's a psychologist and I'm a real estate broker. My company is Franklin Real Estate. If you want to talk about Buying vacation rental property, get my 2 cents worth of advice - feel free to give me a ring.

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
Adjacent to Cape Cod National Seashore. The beauty. The quiet. The salty air. The sand between your toes. The swimming at high tide. Walking around at low tide -different every day. The soothing sound of the waves.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Explore Cape Cod National Seashore by foot or by kayak. Sand dunes, salt marshes, & secluded beaches. Especially peaceful in the off-season. Water is warm enough to swim in. This is living!
