Spectacular Ocean Views from a Newly Built Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 6), 2 Baths, Wonderful Kitchen -all with Fantastic Ocean View

If ocean views, breezes and sounds are what you love... stay here. The ocean is omnipresent. Every room has an incredible view. An abundance of windows gives the cottage a light and airy feel. Cooking in the kitchen, reading on the deck(s) or even working in the office is a tranquil pleasure with the waves in the distance.

A short walk down the path to one of the most beautiful private Beaches on Cape Cod, you're also right across the street from incredible hiking trails through the National Seashore Park. Nestled among the scrub pines and rose bushes, the house sits high on the dunes overlooking the ocean.

The house consists of a master bedroom with king-size bed, a office bedroom with two twin beds, and a guest bedroom with a queen-size bed (sleeps 6). There are two full bathrooms (one with a lovely cast iron soaking tub). There's a full two-sink kitchen with professional-grade range, living room, dining area (all with expansive 180% ocean views), large deck, enclosed outdoor shower (with view), 2nd floor deck, front porch and lovely yard with picnic area - all with sweeping views.

Wake up to the sunrise over the water and have dinner watching the sunset over the forest! Watch whales breaching from the deck as you eat and let the sound of the waves put you to sleep! Ride a bike to the Wellfleet General store or PB Boulangerie to get fresh baked goods and produce, then work of those calories boogie boarding, surfing or hiking! Have an afternoon massage on the private deck overlooking the ocean or just take a nap on the beach! And a short hike through the woods takes you to one of Wellfleet's famous fresh water kettle ponds for a refreshing dip before dinner!

About The Owner

I am an engineer who adores the ocean and anything nautical. This home exemplifies what I love: a simple, quiet existence with a view of the sea. Whether it's a sunny summer day, or a raging Nor'easter, this is where I want to be.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose South Wellfleet

I intend to retire in this house and, until I can afford that, I'm renting it out so that others can enjoy this incredible seaside cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is newly rebuilt in the spirit of the original cottage that was first built in 1905 by Captain Lorenzo Baker, just to the south at a site near the Marconi wireless experiments, and was moved here a few months later, becoming the first home on Ocean View Drive. This little spot has seen a lot over the years.

It is located overlooking a hollow to the sea, and the panoramic view of the ocean is breathtaking. One can hear and see the shore break, as well as whales playing as they migrate. At night the quiet of the woods is calming, and starry nights are serene. This location is very special.

Wonderful property with views of the ocean from every room, a path down to the beach and cross-the-road proximity to national seashore trails. Radiant floor heating system and fireplace were great for our visit over the winter holidays. Owner very responsive. Highly recommend!

The moment you walk into this cottage you are surrounded by ocean views! The kitchen was well equipped and very close to the beach. We loved the property and are already planning our next trip.

A rare find on the Cape Cod Seashore!

We were looking for an "ocean front" property and found it in Scott's place. The views were incredible and the accommodations first rate. At first we were a little nervous about the linen rental but Furies had them waiting for us at the front door. Thanks for a great stay Scott!!

My family stayed at this house for two weeks, and they were fantastic. I am still missing the view from the deck. My kids loved their upstairs bedroom nooks. The half bath between the two bedrooms worked perfectly for us.

The walk down to the beach was so convenient. We never even bought a beach pass. Can't wait for next year!
