I grew up in Maplewood, NJ and moved to Wellfleet full time when I was 20. I have lived here full time for 40 years so I must be 60- Oy! I work in the home care business, caring for over 20 homes and contracting construction and maintenance work.I am also a Real Estate Broker and would be happy to help you find your dream home.

My off-time passions are racketball and more recently fishing. I love my beautiful wife and my life on the Cape!

Nick purchased this house in 1930

The home was first purchased by my grandmother in 1930 from Capt.Lorenzo Dow Baker the founder of United Fruit AKA the Banana King. It was passed to my parents and then to me. I hope to keep it in the family for many more years. We believe it was first built in the late 1700's as a supply store for the fishermen who used the pier that used to be at the end of the road. It was later converted into a Greek Revival Style home @1840. Before the white men took over the area was inhabited by the Wampanoag Tribe. The adjacent dune area has yielded numerous primitive artifacts.

I am mostly there to work on the place, which I love doing, and it is the perfect parking place when the flats are opened for oystering. Slurp! I live with my wife in the highlands of Cove View Rd. about a quarter mile away.

Great house

  • 5 of 5
The house is perfect for all weather. You need this on the Cape. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is modern and well-supplied. The setting is ideal. The beach down the street is charming.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5
We spent a relaxing week at the White House - everything about the location, house and amenities were more than we could have anticipated. We were more than comfortable and had everything we needed to make this spot our home away from home for a week. The location is convenient to all things Wellfleet, but also quiet and secluded with sunsets to end the day! The owner made sure we were comfortable and was very easy to work with from reservation to end of the visit. We expect to go back next year!

The way Cape Cod should be.

  • 5 of 5
First off the location is perfect, your are the last house on a private road, and literally a 30 second walk to the beach/cove. There are lots of great places to eat within 5-10 mins and P-town is maybe 25 mins away. The house has wonderful charm, is very well appointed for summer and winter and you even have cable and Internet, for those of us who cannot ever really "turn off". If you are thinking about staying anywhere near Wellfleet, this is the place to do it!

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the "Little White House" on the cove, and have found a new favorite vacation spot! The house is delightful; a true antique with all it's nooks and crannies, spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a kitchen that had everything we needed. The location is spectacular; at least once a day, we launched our kayaks literally steps from the house (at mid-to-high tide) and walked to Wellfleet Center (when the tide was out). The flora and fauna were a delight; Great Blue Heron, cormorants, piping plovers, osprey, hummingbirds, bunnies, chipmunks and an abundance of wildflowers (like Sea Lavender) that you'd wish to cultivate in your garden. Wellfleet, with all of its fabulous shops and galleries, is only a stone's throw away, and when you need "big waves", the National Seashore is a short drive to the other side of Route 6. The Little White House was close to everything, and at the same time, away from it all. Thank you so much for sharing this special place with us. ~Leigh & Dave

Wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from a magical week at "The Little While House" on Chipman's Cove in Wellfleet. It was wonderful! The house is a very clean, beautifully maintained, antique cape with all necessary modern amenities including grill, outdoor shower (aaahhh!) and well-stocked kitchen. My children (13 yo boy and 10 yo girl) were very comfortable in the three bedrooms with quite comfortable beds and plenty of storage. The pictures of the house do not do the spot justice. The view includes beautiful Wellfleet Harbor (lots of boat activity) as well as a long view around Chipman's Cove and Uncle Tim's bridge (if you walk the cove and over the bridge, you can reach wonderful downtown Wellfleet in about 25 minutes.) Wellfleet itself offers tons to do for families as well as for those who want more quiet, less active vacation: fresh water ponds were a big hit, as was bike riding, trips to Mac's Seafood across the Harbor, shopping, ice cream and trips to BEAUTIFUL beaches (bay side water is warm and ocean side is rougher, more dramatic and colder!) Wellfleet, Truro and P'town are beautiful places to explore and have been protected against over-population, unlike other parts of the Cape. I would recommend this vacation spot whole heartedly... We can't wait to go next year! (Also, Nick, the owner, is very responsive, helpful and easy to deal with -- thanks Nick! )

Relaxing Christmas on Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
We were looking to spend a quiet relaxing Christmas away from the stress of running from one house to another so decided, at the dismay of our families, to "run away" this year. We could not have found a more serene picturesque place to escape than Nick's wonderful cozy house. Myself and our 2 pups (Betty and Jerry) arrived earlier than my husband and despite it being dark out and in a somewhat secluded area I immediatley felt welcomed and safe as soon as I entered the house. The house is clean, tastefully decorated with plenty of room for 2 dogs to roam around and not be under foot. I love the art work and the handcrafted clocks that are on display throughout the house. The gas stoves in the master bedroom and living room along with our little table top Christmas tree added a perfect holiday winter feel. The only thing missing was the snow. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything that you could possibly need to create a gourmet meal. We picked up some lobster meat on Christmas Eve and had a wonderful lazy man lobster pie with salad on Christmas. Before dinner, we took a walk over Uncle Tom's bridge where my husband (a biology major in college) was very excited to see a porpoise skull at the edge of the water. The dogs had a great time taking walks and visiting the nearby dog park in Provincetown where they met some new doggy friends. All in all we had such a great time that we have decided to book a week this fall. Thanks Nick for making available such a wonderful place to escape from reality and relax!!!!
