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.

Lieutenant island is a truly magical place!

My family and I had a wonderful stay in the house. It was impeccably clean and well stocked.
We enjoyed our stay very much!!
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
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.
This is the third year we have rented this house. Lieutenant Island is one of our all time favorite places to vacation. It has all the charm of Cape Cod but none of the crowds - Very peaceful and very relaxing. The house is perfect for our needs (two families with two kids a piece). It is well stocked and comfortable. The living room has ample room for all 8 of us to sit around and relax. The best place, though, is the deck. It's absolutely beautiful to sit out, sip wine, and enjoy the sunsets.
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.
