This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath contemporary house with cathedral ceilings built in 1970 and renovated in 1990.

There is also a loft area with a narrow stairway that leads to a room with a double bed. It has a terrific location with a pleasant 3/10 mile walk to the beach at Long Pond and a 2 mile or so drive to the ocean beaches. There is easy access to Wellfleet Center, the harbor and bayside beaches using the Long Pond Road overpass. **Fireplace NOT for tenant use without prior authorization.** **NOTE: Additional, non-refundable fees for this rental are a $75 Processing Fee and a $60 Security Assurance Fee.**

While the exterior of the house is lovely, we were pretty grossed out by the interior. We are not inordinately fancy people with unrealistic expectations (we've been renting on the Cape for years), but the house did not meet our cleanliness requirements. There was a lot of clutter (like many dusty throw pillows and rugs everywhere) and coverings on every surface: both tables had uninviting plastic wrappings and the couch and chairs in the living room had dirty furniture covers. We had to lay down our own sheets on top of those just to want to sit on the furniture.
There was also a mildew-y smell throughout the house. And at least one of the fans was covered in the dust that accumulates on fans. There were also holes at the bottom of the sliding screen door in the back, which resulted in a field mouse from the yard getting into the kitchen. And this meant that we didn't feel comfortable leaving the glass sliding door open, which was a bit maddening given the mildew-y smells.
The owners would be well-advised to strip down on all the clutter and make sure the house and items used by guests (such as the fans) get a good cleaning on a regular basis. It's not relaxing to vacation under these circumstances.
Cute cottage in good condition with plenty of room. Best of all is location, which can't be beat. Easy walk to town or pond, and access to harbor and ocean, all without having to get on Route 6!
