About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful Wellfleet Geiger-Phillips architect-designed 4 bedroom custom contemporary home (2300 sq ft) with all amenities nestled in the woods of Wellfleet. Kitchen/dining area renovated 2016. Just 1 mile to the center of town and marina. 3 beaches on the bayside (flat, warmer, kid-friendly) are nearby and 3 more on the oceanside (waves, surf, national seashore) are a 5 minute drive. This home is in a quiet, wooded area that borders conservation land, national seashore. The Herring River offers a peaceful oasis with amazing sunsets and birds.

House has an open floor plan upstairs, beautiful large deck for relaxing and grilling, and a king-bed master suite with its own private deck. Downstairs are 3 more bedrooms and 1.5 baths. 2 car garage, privacy, and quiet on a dead-end cul-de-sac.

Wellfleet is one of the most inviting communities for vacationing on Cape Cod thanks to its many bayside and oceanside beaches (and the secret kettle-ponds for fresh-water swimming), acres of national seashore for walking, hiking and birding.

Wellfleet is also an arts and culture center on the Cape with Preservation Hall the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, Payomet (Truro), Harbor Stage Company, galleries plus many more restaurants, arts events, and a nightlife in nearby Provincetown (15 minutes away).

The recreational possibilities are endless -- biking, kayaking, surfing, and fishing. Biking in the Province Lands trail is like visiting another planet with its sand dunes and hills (by Cape Cod standards). Want to charter a boat for deep-sea fishing or whale-watching? A week at the sailing club down the street? All of this and more is a few minutes away.

If you like to shop Wellfleet has many boutiques and the Wellfleet flea market draws visitors from all over the Cape. At night you can pack up the gang and go to the drive-in (or the movie theaters).

Our house has everything you need for a memorable summer vacation - location, comfort, wireless internet and cable, and in 2016 a completely renovated and fully-equipped kitchen (some new photos included). All renters will receive our custom guide to the neighborhood with restaurant recommendations, favorite walks, rainy-day ideas and more.

This is a strictly smoke-free home and we are sorry that we can not accept pets.

About Jeff Behrens

We are travel, arts, outdoor, and food enthusiasts who have lived and worked in Boston for over 30 years.

Jeff Behrens purchased this house in 2012

Why Jeff Behrens chose Wellfleet

We have traveled around the world, but still find that our hearts belong in New England. As a kid Jeff used to visit his grandparents on the Cape and was finally able to buy a beautiful house with Lori in Wellfleet. We love the beaches, the walks, the culture and the community here. The house is in a super quiet area surrounded by woods up on a hill. No traffic -- just the sounds of owls at night and great star gazing.

We are in a unique area that is wooded and private up a knoll off a cul de sac. It provides a sense of seclusion, but is just a short walk/bike ride/drive into town.

What makes this house unique

Amazing open-floor plan custom home and deck designed to capture the light at all times of the day. Main deck faces west to enjoy summer sunsets. Each of the larger bedrooms has a private deck too so there is always a place to get away and read or birdwatch.

Wellfleet has the best beaches, restaurants, and culture on the Cape. It's a 20 minute drive to Provincetown or to Orleans.

Great walks from the house along the marsh in the National Seashore. Sunsets on Duck Harbor Beach are the best. In the morning bike down to PB's for fresh-baked French pastries and coffee or just take the untraveled back roads to Truro. In the afternoon stop by the wonderful Wellfleet library (5 minute bike ride from the house) or walk down to the harbor for some amazing seafood at Mac's. If it's a warm day you can take a quick dip on one of the clean, warm kettle ponds and then enjoy an outdoor shower back at the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great visit to Wellfleet. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood but still close to downtown, beaches, and lakes. Lots of light, great deck, and plenty of space. The kitchen is terrific and well-equipped for real cooking.

Amazing stay in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. It's beautiful, clean, and has all the amenities you could ask for: great kitchen, spacious bedrooms, easy location for getting to kettle ponds and beaches. The owners were responsive and helpful - from tips about things to do with small kids to last minute questions about the property. Highly highly recommend.

Wonderful Wellfleet once again

  • 5 of 5

This continues to be one of our favorite vacation spots. The renovation opens the great room up so all the cooks can enjoy the view. The deck is perfect for coffee, yoga, reading, wine, constellations, and napping. The owners are always available for any questions.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a three generation family vacation at this house and had a great time--a beautiful home with a perfect kitchen for family meals, big enough for all of us, plenty of activities at the beaches and ponds, close enough to town to walk or bike but nestled in the quiet of the woods. Great, great summer vacation.
