My off-time passions are racquetball and fishing. I love my beautiful wife Elisa and my life on the Cape!
Nick purchased this House in 1930
Why Nick chose Wellfleet
The home was first purchased by my grandmother in 1930 from Capt.Lorenzo Dow Baker, the founder of United Fruit AKA the Banana King. It was passed to my parents and then to me. I hope to keep it in the family for many more years. We believe it was first built in the late 1700's as a supply store for the fishermen who used the pier that used to be at the end of the road. It was later converted into a Greek Revival Style home @1840. Before the white men took over the area was inhabited by the Wampanoag Tribe. The adjacent dune area has yielded numerous primitive artifacts.
What makes this House unique
I am mostly there to work on the place, which I love doing, and it is the perfect place to be when the flats are open for oystering. Slurp! I live with my wife in the highlands of Cove View Rd. about a quarter mile away. But when we are at the house, just looking at the view makes us calm and happy. Our son got married there and it was the most romantic backdrop. We love this place and think you will, too.

Amazing Stay at the White House on the Cove
We stayed at Nick’s place recently. Simply put, this home is lovely, charming and historic. The property was amazing. Views of Wellfleet harbor from inside the house are great. Outside they are even more incredible. The owner has done a great job outfitting the home with anything you may need and has also done an great job adding touches to take full advantage of different parts of the property. The front yard has a nice patio table with chairs to sit at and look at the water. There were also some nice Adirondack chairs and a bench. The side of the property had lounge chairs for relaxing. The backyard had an awesome fire pit with plenty of seating along with another patio table. There was also a cute “secret garden” area that was fun for the toddler that was with us. An outdoor shower, well equipped kitchen, cozy family room, ample sized bedrooms completed the home. While there was only one bath it’s a good size and has a washer and dryer. The owner was extremely accommodating, very responsive to questions and even allowed us an early checkin and late checkout to make the most of the days we were there. We couldn’t have asked for better and would absolutely love to return for another visit.
We travelled with our kids and dog and really enjoyed our stay. Appreciated the views, the beach; amazed at the size of the horseshoe crabs. Location is an easy drive to P’town. Even with the chilly weather, the cottage was warm and cozy. Highly recommend this location. Thanks Nick and Elisa and Missy.
Paradise on the Bay
Our trip could not have been more perfect. We felt right at home in this historic cottage, filled with fresh flowers and sunlight, and nestled away from the crowds. The owners are wonderful people and responsive to any need. We are looking forward to our next stay.
Love at First Sight
This house had everything I could have asked for and more, including very considerate owners. The kitchen was extraordinarily well-equipped (even with a small tv in case the cook was bored) and we made elaborate meals there. There were thoughtful touches like binoculars for bird-watching, books and games, and lots of comfortable outdoor furniture, and a coffee cake greeted us on arrival. The house was well-heated--very comfortable for an off-season stay. The location is wonderful--incredibly peaceful, overlooking Chipman's Cove and the entrance to Wellfleet Harbor. It would provide an escape from busy-season traffic and activity. In short, we will definitely be back.
Another Awesome trip !
We always enjoy staying at the White House! Very excellent!
We have a nice volleyball/badminton set that we will erect on request.
