About the property

The Captain's House is the largest of four dwellings that make up the boutique Hotel during referred to as The Wagner at Duck Creek. During "beach pass season" it is impossible to get a reservation without early planning. however, after Oysterfest in October and prior to Memorial Day, this iconic accommodation is a stellar option for large groups. The Captain's House was built in the 1820's, and is comprised of 18 rooms, 18 bathrooms, a dining room, wellness room, and living rooms. The house sleeps 46 people in beds (assuming every bed has 2 people). There are 6 rooms with Kings, 4 rooms that have two doubles, 1 room that has a double, and the balance have Queens. The property is walking distance to town, adjacent to our restaurant (The Well Tavern + Kitchen) as well as The Wicked, and we are continuously adding to the onsite amenities.

About Erica & Leo Wagner

We love Wellfleet! We are here to be engaged in the community (love on others!), create jobs, and contribute towards continuous improvement!

Erica & Leo Wagner purchased this house in 2015

Why Erica & Leo Wagner chose Wellfleet

We are incredibly well located (walking distance to town), with two restaurants next door, and a lot of autonomy that one can gain in capturing "The Captain's House". It is often commandeered for Weddings, but we love when we are able to have large families or retreats!

What makes this house unique

The iconic nature of this property is unique in and of itself; but, the brand new kitchen, the location, the amenities - all of these things make this property amazing!

Amazing home for big groups. Beautiful, comfortable, charming, and great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's House is perfect for large groups. We fit 20 adults and 20 children in it comfortably. The lawn areas were great for lawn games, and some of the best beaches on the Cape are just a short drive away.

The staff members were incredibly friendly and responsive.

Provincetown is a short drive away, and great seafood is within walking distance.

The rooms are well done with new, comfortable mattresses.

The kitchen is spacious and the dining and living areas provide comfortable space for eating and socializing with your group.
