Great location, good space for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here - we have a good-sized extended family (14 total, 8 of whom were kids ranging in age from 17 down to 9 months old) and were able to spread out so no one felt cramped. We really liked the patio and the dinner table in the great room, both of which enabled us to congregate together. The easy walking distance to Wellfleet Center was a big plus as was the easy bike/drive to Long Pond, Gull Pond and Newcomb Hollow. We didn't feel as if we needed our cars as much, which tended to be an issue at other houses we've rented. The pond was a nice touch especially for the small kids; the multiple living spaces gave us all a good amount of space, and the 1BR cottage was a great spot for the young family among us to spread out.

A few little comments:

- We were surprised at the severe pitch of the stairs to the upstairs bedrooms. The family with an infant was going to stay upstairs but the mom didn't feel safe carrying an infant on the front stairs and especially the back stairs. Something for families to consider.

- There were no amenities at all when we arrived - no toilet paper, no paper towels, no soap, nothing. As former Cape house owners we understood that we'd need to provide linens and shampoo, but would have thought there would have been at least leftovers from the previous renter. Maybe they took everything when they checked out? Just another thing to prepare for upon arrival.

- When pulling out of the driveway, the hedges on the left made it very difficult to see east on Long Pond Road, and at least once we had a near collision with a car coming quickly around the bend.

Thanks for everything and hopefully we'll be back!

Great place and location for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The main house and cottages provided a great space for our extended family who gathered for our daughter's wedding at Truro Vineyard. There were enough places for the children to have fun inside on an unexpected rainy day; the ping pong table was well used! We live in a 100+ year old house and really liked the character of the older main house. The new cottage was perfect for those in our group who preferred a newer place, and the older cottage reminded some of us of being at camp. The house was very well equipped for cooking, although a couple of the foodies among us wished we had brought a large saute pan. The table in the great room comfortably accommodated family and guests for a special dinner, and the washer and dryer were very much appreciated. With all of the fireplaces, this would be a great place to stay in all seasons.

We were able to walk to some great restaurants and the stores in Wellfleet, and getting to beaches and other sites we wanted to visit was easy.

On the day of the wedding, the photographer took many of the family photos in the garden and patio area next to the main house before we went to Truro Vineyard for the wedding. We will think of the wonderful time we had at the house when we look at the wedding photos. A perfect place for a large group to gather!
