Beachside location (minutes walk to Lecount Hollow Beach) and comfort are everything for a great vacation. Stay at this cool (central A/C) and comfortable, updated home *within* the National Seashore in Wellfleet. Located on a private road off Ocean View Drive which runs along the Atlantic Ocean. Our road leads to a private path (for residents and guests) directly to LeCount Hollow Beach (minutes away). Enjoy the convenience of being beachside living with parking space for up to 3 cars. No waiting in the car for a public parking spot to open or having to go to the beach at 8 AM to get parking. Walk home for lunch or a snack and go back at your leisure. Additionally, the famous Beachcomber is about a mile down Ocean View Drive (walkable, drive, bike or take the free shuttle). Popular PB boulangerie (French bakery and Bistro) is also about a mile or less away.
As our previous guest reviews suggest, our beach house is in a wonderful beach location. Lecount Hollow (also referred to as McGuire's Landing) and the other National Seashore ocean beaches (Lecounts, White Crest, Cahoon Hollow and Newcomb Hollow) are the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod and are all located off Oceanview Drive. Other location attractions include a nearby 27 mile bike trail, several fresh water kettle ponds and bayside beaches. We are also about a 5-10 minute drive to the town center and harbor. This great area has always attracted families and friends escaping the rigors of real life. Go home refreshed.
The house itself is one of only ~300 within the National Seashore Park. We have 2 queens and 2 twin beds. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor (queen and full) and the twins are on the lower level. We also have a rollout for an overnight guest. There are 2 full bathrooms as well as an enclosed outside shower.
There is spacious living room and eat in kitchen. Note that we have upgraded in 2015 with new cabinets, lighting, bedroom furniture and other updates to make even more comfortable and attractive.
The shady, natural patio/yard is a unique feature of the house. It offers a quiet place to relax and have a cocktail or eat outside with family and friends. In the afternoon it is a shady oasis after a hot day at the beach.
At night, walk or drive to the Beachcomber Restaurant/Night Club which features nightly live bands and soloists from all musical genres (~1 mile down Ocean View Drive) or have a cocktail in their beachside bar 'apres beach'. PB Boulangerie and Bistro, an extremely popular French bakery and restaurant, is a mile down the road (15-20 minute walk).
You never need to leave the area but, for the adventurous, there are many other great restaurants, art galleries, golf, mini-golf, drive-in theatre, live theatre and other attractions in Wellfleet and the surrounding towns (P-Town, Truro or Orleans). Provincetown offers a vibrant downtown area which is a *must* visit about 20 minutes away. There is also a variety of night options in Provincetown.
Jog or bike along Ocean View Drive. Fish, swim or relax on the beach or on your patio steps from the Atlantic. Overall, get ready for an amazing, fun and exciting summer getaway with friends, family and the people of LeCount Hollow Beach and Wellfleet! You will not be disappointed.
