Come and vacation on beautiful Lieutenant Island and experience what Cape Cod is meant to be. As you cross the wooden bridge to the Island, you'll immediately feel release from all the stresses of daily life. Now your routines will be guided only by whim and the ebb and flow of the bay-side tides. Our home has a lovely view of the bay from the master bedroom, living room, and long deck. The bay-side beach is a minute's walk down the hill and accessible only to Island residents. The National Seashore is within a 10 minute drive of the Island. Wellfleet's town center has a thriving artist community with several of the best art galleries in New England. It also hosts many restaurants and a live theatre group who perform throughout the summer. The tip of the Cape, Provincetown, is about a 30 minute drive. Provincetown has great shops, boutiques, restaurants, beaches, and art galleries and is where you can catch a boat for a whale watch or go over to Boston for the day on the ferry.

Wonderful home, magical location
What a wonderful home, well equipped kitchen, plenty of space for family members to hang out, read, do puzzles (if weather is not perfect). A very short walk to the bay, with a nice walk around the island at low tide. A magical location, very quiet and private, we especially loved the outdoor shower after a day on the beach or a long bicycle ride! Thank you!
Thank you for your review! We’re very happy that you enjoyed your time there. We, too, think it is a magical place. Hope you are able to return soon.
Lovely peaceful setting near the beach Roomy clean house
Lieutenant island is a truly magical place!
Thank you for your review! We, too, think it is magical! Hope you are able to return next year.

The best place in Wellfleet!
We loved this amazing house. It was truly an oasis. It's well equipped throughout, but the extraordinary part is the deck that runs the length of the house. Great views and sunsets. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us. The Lattos
My family and I had a wonderful stay in the house. It was impeccably clean and well stocked.
We enjoyed our stay very much!!
Casual, comfortable, beautiful location
We've stayed in the house several times. After many years on the Island, and trying different houses, we always come back to this one for its undeniable comfort, privacy, amenities, and proximity to the shore. Well-equipped, lots of space indoors and out, and with very kind and thoughtful owners, I highly recommend.
Fantastic Cape Cod Experience on Lt's Island
Fantastic, remote, idylic getaway for a west coaster like me who loves sand, shore, the outdoors. THe beach (bayside or oceanside) is a step away, biking trails galore plus easy access to Province Town for shopping and people watching.
This place is well situated to all. Also, very comfortable. THe owers are very low key so everything about renting from start to finish is easy. ANd, it is so great to bbq on the deck with a view to the water!
Thank you, Michelle. We're happy to hear that you'll be back this year, too.
Lieutenant Island is a secluded island nestled in South Wellfleet. The island has beautiful, uncrowded beaches primarily frequented by island residents. The island is great for walking, swimming, beachcombing, and kayaking. It is indeed one of Cape Cod's last well-kept secrets. Several national seashore beaches are within a 10 minute drive of the island; the Cape Cod bike trail is 2.5 miles from the house; the town of Wellfleet with its shops, galleries, and restaurants is a 10 minute drive; and Provincetown is a 30 minute drive. Vacationing on Lieutenant Island gives you the seclusion and calm to relax and unwind but easy, quick access to the many other attractions that Cape Cod has to offer.
