About the property

Modern, 2,700+ sq. ft., architect-designed home in prime Lieutenant Island location. Views and privacy. 2 master suites, 2½ baths on 2 levels; 3d floor loft; sleeps 7 comfortably. Walk to private bay beach; short drive to ocean beaches, ponds.

The Space

The house is clean, modern, and filled with light. Outstanding for two families because there is a master suite on each floor, plus a loft. The house is located on Lieutenant's Island, Wellfleet, Cape Cod with its extraordinary salt marshes and gorgeous private beaches.

Please note availability is weekly only.

A spacious main great room with high ceilings offers a kitchen open to the dining and living area. The upstairs master suite has a queen bed. The downstairs suite has a queen bed and a large day bed. Additional sleeping space includes two twin beds adjacent to the downstairs suite and a third floor loft, so there's lots of room to spread out.

The peacefulness of Lieutenant's Island is difficult to describe. There is a beautiful private beach only a few hundred yards from the house. At high tide it has perfect swimming, and at low tide you can walk the perimeter of the island and see millions of tiny fiddler crabs, dunes, oysters, and much more.

This location is ideal for a nature lover. Lieutenant's Island is nearly half nature preserve, and hosts a multitude of bird species.

Our home offers: wifi, laundry, outdoor decks all around the house, outdoor shower, a wood-burning fireplace, a dishwasher, a gas grill, central air, and an outdoor dining table, chairs, and lounge chairs.

And amazingly, although when you are at the house you feel deeply in nature, within a few minutes drive you are on the main road of Cape Cod and near restaurants, groceries, miniature golf, an amazing French bakery, a drive-in movie theater, a fitness center, and the national seashore.

Guest Access

You get the whole run of the house.

Interaction with Guests

We have a local caretaker, and we are always available by cell phone.

The Neighborhood

Wellfleet has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and you will have access to all the town beaches as well as the local private Lieutenant's Island beach.

Getting around

You need a car, but there's plenty of opportunity for biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail.

Lovely home on unique island

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed out week on the island- exploring, walking the private beaches, watching the beautiful sunsets, and riding bikes on the rail trail. Spacious house with privacy from neighboring houses. However, required to clean all linnens and towels- could benefit from having laundry service. We also had a frequent sand flea infestation in the house (when we arrived we spent an hour vacuuming up fleas) Overall positive and memorable experience in a unique location.

A magnificent home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning house in a peaceful place, very well equipped. The two beaches on the island have completely different characters -- something for every taste. Convenient access to Wellfleet and Orleans. The island is inaccessible at high tide, so needs an eye on tide tables.

Superb attractive house

  • 5 of 5

in an ideal location on Lieutenant's Island, near tidal beaches, this house I so attractive--lovely outdoor landscaping, inside airy, clean white walls, with lovely blue, sand, and white furnishings. It has a feeling of serenity and comfort with indoor nooks and outdoor decks for viewing nature or reading a book. The kitchen is spacious and open to a large dining area and sitting room. There is a downstairs living room as well where the TV is located. There are two master bedrooms and large bathrooms with additional twin bed sleeping area on the ground floor, a small child's bedroom on the main floor, and a queen sized bed sleeping loft on the third floor. There is an additional half bath on the main floor.

Lieutenant's Island itself is a dream, far from the hustle of Route 6 and nearby towns. It is such a welcome retreat after a day's excursion to ocean beaches, Provincetown and Wellfleet. There are enough nearby grocery shopping possibilities (seafood and fresh fish, excellent bread and pastries) so you can cook at home--or if you prefer to eat out there are multitude of options up and down Route 6 and Wellfleet town.

My party of 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 1 five year old loved our week herein this ver special place.
