About Elizabeth Fodaski
I have been living in New York and summering in Wellfleet my entire life. My mother owns the house next door, and my sister and I and our husbands were lucky enough to buy this house last summer.
Elizabeth Fodaski purchased this House in 2013
Why Elizabeth Fodaski chose Wellfleet
This property belonged to our beloved neighbor, who lived in the house from 1976 to 2010. When my sister and I were children, we went to visit our neighbor daily, picking strawberries from her garden, and doing projects with her in her artist's studio downstairs. Her work has been exhibited in Wellfleet for decades, and she and her husband maintained a year-round presence in the Wellfleet community until their deaths. When she died at 97, our family bought the house we had always loved and spent time in as children.
What makes this House unique
The screened-in porch off the living room is a really special place to spend time in the summer. Having a candlelit dinner with friends outdoors in the summertime is one of the best ways we know to pass an evening, and this spot, on the edge of the marsh, without another house in that direction, just green and more green, is an idyll.
Best vacation ever
A lovely home with all the cooking amenities we needed. Easy access to beaches and ponds and town but entirely secluded. What a way to end the summer. Owner was responsive and a joy to communicate with. We shall return!
It’s architecturally wow, clean, and easily big enough for two families.
The kitchen is well stocked and their are porches, screened and not, on all sides. Plus the owners and their relations are beyond gracious.
Excellent layout, lovely setting, and delightful screened-in porch
We very much enjoyed our two-week stay. The layout of the house is excellent. Our son and his family stayed on the bottom floor (two bedrooms and a bathroom), which provided them with privacy including their own outdoor deck. The bedrooms and bathroom on the main floor, where we stayed, also provided privacy from the common areas. The kitchen was well-equipped and large enough for group meal preparation, the living room had comfortable furniture, and we ate all our meals on the absolutely delightful screened-in porch. I also liked the location in that you felt very much away from the action, yet we were a very short ride from town. The owner accommodated my questions in advance in a prompt and helpful manner. I would rent this house again when vacationing on the Cape.
At Home in the Wellfleet Woods
My extended family and I spent a week in Elizabeth's home in July 2017. If you have been captivated by the home's uniqueness, modern architecture and location, you won't be disappointed. It's truly original and feels as if it's wedged into the forest. Though the weather wasn't perfect during our Wellfleet stay, we felt like we had lots time to enjoy simple pleasures at home... reading, catching up on the screened-in porch, making meals in the well-appointed kitchen, or taking naps in the cozy bedrooms with amazing forest views. Town is just a short drive or bike ride away, and has much to offer: from a general store, and crafts shops, to quaint restaurants on the water and a wonderful produce/fish store. Elizabeth is a welcoming host who warmly shares her family's retreat with all of us. Find your way to Marsh End, relax and enjoy. Gratefully, Linda K.
great mid century modern house
This house was comfortably furnished and well-equipped. The common spaces were nice, altho the bathrooms were dark and a bit musty, The screened-in porch was wonderful, with a lovely view of the woods and was very private.
We had a lovely time there.
Great house in a quiet location!
Beautiful, modern home in a great location close to town, but far away enough from both town and Route 6 to be really quiet. Nice sized bedrooms, good kitchen and lots of outdoor space. The owner was really friendly and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!
The only thing to be aware of is that there is a spiral staircase to the downstairs bedrooms that would be tough for little kids. There is a gate there though.
