About the Property

Our house has it all! On the water, plus a short walk to the beach and town.

Our house sits at the tip of a peninsula which overlooks Wellfleet Harbor and Duck Creek. Birds frolic in the surrounding grass and bushes, cormorants and seagulls dive before you, Great Blue Herons patrol before your eyes, and ducks swim by. We are surrounded by perhaps the most serene and breathtaking vista on the Cape, or anywhere. It is viewed from the deck and living/dining room with three walls of glass.

The beauty is forever amazing. At high tide you say ''That's the most amazing''. Then you see it at low tide with the meandering blue creek cutting through the exposed tidal flats, and you think ''Now it is at its most beautiful''. You swear it is best on a sunny day when the white steeple is contrasted against the crisp blue sky, but then you experience it when it is cloudy and misty. You smell the salt air and hear the ships' bells, and say ''It is never more magical than this.''

The great room has an open floor plan encompassing the living room, dining room, kitchen and an office. The living room and dining room are surrounded by three walls of glass each with sliding glass doors entering onto the wrap-around deck. Open the doors and the shore breeze creates natural air-conditioning.
The kitchen is well supplied for a gourmet cook, with microwave, toaster-oven, food processor, blender, coffee bean grinder, coffee brewer, etc. The bedrooms are normal size, whereas most in vacation homes are small.
If you have a boat, we are less than a 5 minute walk to the Marina. About an 8 minute walk to Mayo Beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We live in the Boston area and have vacationed in Wellfleet since we both were kids. We first saw this cottage when we were looking for a rental in 1991. We were shown 5 places, but there was no comparison. This was so far above the rest.

Why the Owner Chose Wellfleet, MA, USA:
We learned this house was for sale in 1998, and could not bear the thought of no longer being able to vacation in this special place. We immediately agreed to buy it. Some of our guests have been renting our cottage since before we even started renting it. It is a place one immediately falls in love with. We have many repeat guests, and we love to share this special little piece of Heaven with them.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is perfectly located. We are in a heavenly spot in which you feel insulated from the rest of the world, but a short easy walk to Mayo beach, Wellfleet Village, shops, galleries and restaurants. If you have a boat, or want to rent or charter one for deep sea fishing, we are a 5 minute walk to the Marina. We are on the edge of a community in a private spot on the tip of a peninsula, with a 270° unbroken panoramic view of the harbor and Duck Creek. It is more than a view; you are actually in the midst of this idyllic scene. We have perhaps the most serene and charming vista on the Cape, or anywhere.
