About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The perfect location! Nestled in a secluded acre, yet an incredible five minute walk to the center of historic Wellfleet Village. And a ten minute walk to the town harbor, bay beach, fabulous playground, basketball and tennis courts, and skateboarding ramps. Shops, cafes and fine dining, galleries, and the Cape's best library are all in the village.

Our smoke-free home offers quiet and private seclusion; blackberry bushes, roses, and meadows surround the property; watch the birds and bunnies that feast here, too. The sheltered private back yard provides an extensive lawn ideal for children.

Built in 2002, this artist's home boasts beautiful colors, new furnishings, all amenities and conveniences, an outdoor after-swim shower, and an enormous full length old fashioned screened-in porch (with lounge chairs and a large table with seating for ten).

About Bob Flack

Drawn to the light, charm, and coastlines of the Outer Cape, and after vacationing with their children in Wellfleet and Truro for two decades, Bob Flack and Fran Forman found their perfect second home in 2003, an easy walk to village, harbor and beaches.

Bob is an architect specializing in affordable housing in the Boston area. Fran is an internationally exhibited fine artist, whose work is featured in, among other books, 'Contemporary Cape Cod Artists: People and Places'. Her monograph, 'Escape Artist: The Art of Fran Forman' was published in 2014.

Their children are now grown and live in different parts of the country, but Bob and Fran enjoy caring for their home and are particularly proud of the gardens they designed and planted, celebrating the many flora of the Outer Cape.

Bob Flack purchased this house in 2003

Best rental in Wellfleet

House was nice and private, clean and lots of room. Especially loved the large screened in porch overlooking the gardens. It really is a secluded gem!

Everything was perfect! Every possible need thought out and provided. Highest recommendations!

  • 5 of 5

The house is truly lovely. Lots of room. The big screened-in porch overlooking the lawn and gardens made the perfect place to sit with your morning tea and evening glass of wine. The house is a short walk into town and yet is completely private and secluded. We had a wonderful stay. Many thanks!

If return visits counted as stars, we'd be giving 8!

I started taking my son to this charming home in Welfleet when he was 3. We fell in love with the house, the yard and the location... and continue to visit each September. He's now turning 11, and we can't wait to come back again next year. It's perfectly situated in my favorite Cape town, and close to everything. I believe you get the full Cape experience here. It's great for single families, families with children, and especially multiple families. Plenty of room for everyone, yet still small enough to feel cozy. The yard is probably one of the prettiest you'll find around.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to the Cape (one more off the bucket list)! I think this place is one of the best properties in Wellfleet to rent. The ease of the floor plan was perfect. I liked the seclusion and quiet with all the convenience of walking to the beach or town center. Not to mention the wonderful books in the bookcase or the short drive to Moby's Dick Seafood Restaurant, I probably should have walked there also, and one could. We had the best time with good friends, kayaking, walking the beaches and of course fishing. This home has all the conveniences so we lacked nothing once we came home to cook (Strippers of course), relax and rest, it was all there to enjoy, surrounded by nature's beauty.
