The only double capacity home in a fragile "bedroom capped" area.
The only Sea Captain's Bluff Cottage to have received a "Truman White House" complete teardown/reconstruction and a "Jacqueline Kennedy White House" refurnishing.

An Edward Hopper "First Choice" in all of Wellfleet to immortalize through art.
Visitors to The Bluff, with its wondrous, sweeping, Cape panorama, invariably erupt into nonverbal exultations of pure, aesthetic joy. Every eye flashes and every breath catches in childlike delight. The views really are that spectacular and the venue is family, friend and colleauge perfect.
Edward Hopper, who painted the ''beauty beyond language,'' immortalized this home and environs in his ''Cottages at Wellfleet.'' The Juliet Balconied three story home, with its wide porch and private beach, is one of the original Chequessett Inn Bluff Cottages built in the early 1900's by Sea Captain and banana tycoon L.D. Baker for friends and special guests. The house retains its original Eastlake furnishings, its lovely, historic, Cape Cod charm and, because of its era, it stands taller, is closer to the water and has more bedrooms than modern conservation regulations would allow. Seagulls soar below you. The grandfathered in extra bedrooms make the home a unique ''three cottage'' cottage where the comp conscious cost may be split with no drawn straws to see who's stuck on a pullout couch. Inviting bay waters are warm and offer a safe, onshore breeze. When a sou'wester picks up, windsurfers and kite boarders can literally fly. Kayak to The National Seashore's Great Island or behind the neck to the Herring River. Explore the estuaries at low tide. Play softball. Play Boccee. Stroll past the world's most famous oyster beds to Wellfleet Harbor for ice cream, sushi or lobster. Tell your loved ones to ''Go fly a kite'' and prepare for decades of gratitude.
And! While the home and beach are private and peaceful, Wellfleet's “global destination” restaurants, galleries, theater, tennis, golf, kettle ponds, Atlantic beaches, grocery and village center are all just a cherrystone's throw away. It is a perfect spot for a larger family, retreat group or Big Chill reunion surrounded by the natural wonders of the Outer Cape and, like the National Seashore around it, it's a place to enjoy gently. Just like the Seashore, it is to be left in the same Clean and Pristine shape that you’ve found it. Or Better!
