This place is a gem as is the owner!
"My husband and I stayed in this cottage on our first trip to Cape Cod as part of a month-long retirement trip. We just loved our stay in this cottage! The property is situated on a bluff overlooking a huge tidal creek. Views were just awesome, and watching the tidal changes was a daily treat - the "creek" empties out almost entirely at low tide, exposing an aquafarming section (fascinating), and at high tide provides outstanding opportunities for kayaking. There were ample places to sit and enjoy the views including the front porch. Access to the water & kayaks was via a very well constructed stairs designed to minimize steepness. Sunsets were spectacular!
The cottage was perfect for us: the kitchen was modest, but gave us all that we needed; the bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. (I will say that although we are in our early 60's and did fine, there is no bathroom on the 2nd floor, so be aware of that). We woke up every morning to the beautiful view through the large window in the front bedroom. Downstairs also comfortable, though we spent most of our time, including meals, on the porch where you might see a sudden drama of squirrels escaping a hawk, lots of chipmunks, and wild turkeys stroll up over the bluff and stop in the yard to eat.
Nearby Wellfleet is not a big tourist-y looking town, and it has lots of charm. It is on a harbor and there are picturesque places all around, "Uncle Timothy's bridge" over a small tidal creek, the pier to the harbor, lovely beaches, ponds to swim in (when it was too windy on the beach) little "main street" theatreand lots of places to eat good food around the area. Within 20-30 minutes, you can drive to the National Park, Truro and Provincetown; the Audubon Sanctuary is right in Wellfleet. To us, this property was perfectly situated. We had a spectacular whale watching cruise out of P-town. At beaches near Wellfleet, seals were abundant at high tide and came very close to shore for great viewing.
One of the BEST parts of our stay was getting to know the owner whose house was also on the property. Linda was a friendly, terrific host who will give you privacy as well as being receptive to you sitting with her and hearing the history of her family and the property. We enjoyed her friendship and humor tremendously! Just can't say enough about how getting to know Linda enhanced the enjoyment of our stay. Can't imagine why we'd stay anywhere else on Cape Cod and only wish we had planned to stay longer."

"Three generations of my family, 8 in all, enjoyed this lovely home which is in walking distance of the bay. We had everything we needed and when a problem with the dishwasher occurred the owner was right on it, getting a new one within days. Though the pictures didn't show it there are two separate living areas as well as a balcony play space. These were very useful for those of us who wanted to read or work quietly. There's a little porch that has a bit of bay view and served as our breakfast nook."

"Our family loved this place - you walk in and are immediately comfortable. The house is roomy, clean, and absolutely adorable. Casual but eclectic and comfy beach house decor, and everything you need for your stay.
Mike & Melissa were very responsive and kind hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. We are hoping to come back next year!"

"We recently returned from a fabulous two-week vacation at this home. First, I want to commend the owner for his hospitality. From my very first inquiry, the owner was very responsive.
Next I want to highlight the pleasant environment both inside and outside this house. The home is set back in the woods on a corner lot. Every room has large windows that look out onto this country-like environment. The windows provided great ventilation on warm days. When the weather got very hot, there were box fans to position in front of each window which cooled the house down quickly. And when things cooled down, we were very appreciative of the extra comforters provided for our use.
For us one of the best features of the home was its open layout and comfortable furnishings. When our adult children joined us for one of the weeks, the living and dining areas easily accommodated our group of six. The casual dining table, umbrella table on the deck, and the comfortable living room couch and chairs provided great areas to gather around. Highly recommend."
