Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a classically beautiful 1840's farmhouse that has been comfortably updated. The main house is handsomely appointed with antique and contemporary furniture, and has a living room, library, eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. Linens are NOT provided, but linen service can be arranged. A roomy screened porch off the kitchen overlooks conservation land and a serene landscape and is the perfect spot for morning coffee or al fresco dining. After a day at the beach, enjoy the outdoor shower before a nap on the porch.

The original barn has been converted to a charming, bright and airy lofted guesthouse. It has a complete second kitchen and a huge stone table in the dining area that seats 10. This guesthouse has a full bath and sleeps four.

The buildings are surrounded by gardens with wisteria, roses and flowering shrubs. The two-acre property is very private yet is less than a mile to all of Wellfleet's attractions: walk, bike or drive to the galleries and restaraunts, the ocean beaches, the warm bay beaches and the famous freshwater ponds.

Important: Linens are NOT provided but a linen service can be arranged.

Keywords: Antique Farmhouse, detached guesthouse, near ponds, half-mile to town, one mile to beach

This is a remarkable property in every way - the homes, the decor, the gardens, and the location are all heavenly. However, THEY DO NOT PROVIDE LINENS, so make sure you bring your own sheets and towels (we were not prepared!). No information available about the house, other than the cleaning they expected us to do before leaving, so there is some fumbling about to find things. That said, I'd come back in a heart beat and highly recommend this beautiful, serene get away.

An exceptional space

  • 5 of 5

Although this was, for us, a honeymoon stay, we enjoyed it with wonderful friends. The spaciousness allowed everyone to have the privacy they needed, while still having the fun of sharing a good time with friends. The two houses can clearly handle up to about 10 people (there were eight of us).

The grounds are gorgeous. The owners are professional horticulturalists and the grounds have been laid out beautifully, highlighting the best elements of Cape Cod's flora.

The facilities made our stay comfortable. The location was easy to Provincetown, to downtown Wellfleet, the beaches, and historic places along the cape.

Without hesitation, this will be a place we'll come back to. If you choose to stay here, you won't regret it. A beautiful and memorable time. I know that our pictures will never fully capture the wonder of the place, but my memory will always hold it dear to me.

As beautiful as the pictures on VRBO look, they really don’t do this property justice. The house was clean, well-maintained and the décor was great – an interesting mix of modern and antique pieces. Oh, and the yard is HUGE.

The guest barn, with its long stone table (and full kitchen) was perfect for a family gathering or just watching the Red Sox. Sure, you’ll find cheaper rental properties on the Cape, but few as nice as this. Worth every penny. My wife and I loved it! Our only complaint was that we had to leave!

Perfect Family Getaway in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

Our family was VERY fortunate to have spent Thanksgiving weekend at this lovely property on the Cape. What a find!

Both houses were clean, comfortable and well appointed --- instantly welcoming---which is a rare attribute in vacation home rentals. I could tell the owner put careful consideration in anticipating the needs of each guest. Everything was perfect!

As a seasoned traveler, I was pleasantly surprised to find such spacious and beautifully appointed rooms, with good lighting, quality linens and comfortable furnishings to make us feel like home. The grounds were notable as well -- together with the beautiful lawn furniture, statuary and regional plantings.

The BIG SURPRISE was the barn outbuilding (guest house) that quickly became the favorite hide-a-way for my teenage sons --replete with a comfortable sleeping loft, living room with pull-out sofa, unique long slender granite dining table and full kitchen & private full bath. I think I even liked it better than the main house just because of the high ceilings and open-plan loft space. The living room had a big screen TV hidden inside an armoire, which made for a relaxing area to watch movies.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this property to anyone looking for a family reunion compound or a large group of friends who just want to escape to Cape Cod for a week. We can't wait to go back!

Pass available to access parking at town's beaches in the National Seashore, on Cape Cod Bay, and the wonderful freshwater ponds of Wellfleet. There is an Audubon Sanctuary nearby and whale watching from Provincetown. Local produce and seafood available in town. Great dining abounds. IMPORTANT: Linens are NOT provided.
