WALK TO PONDS, HOUSE BORDERING NATIONAL SEASHORE,NEWLY RENOVATED,QUIET SETTING

Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6.

The interior is impeccably maintained with brand new furniture throughout. There are French doors to a breezy, sunny deck right off the modern, complete kitchen. The deck has a large umbrella table that seats six-eight for comfortable outdoor dining. Off the kitchen there is also a beautiful screened porch with cozy rattan furniture.

On the first floor, besides the eat-in kitchen, is an airy, well-lit living room, two bedrooms (each accommodating 2 people), and a full bath with tub and shower. The master bedroom on the second floor has its own French doors to a private deck and a full bath. There is a carpeted, open, child-friendly area on the second floor for reading, games, watching movies, etc. The basement has a ping pong table, washer and dryer, beach chairs, beach umbrella, raft and boogie boards for your use while at the house. Large well-placed windows offer wonderful west light and ceiling fans for maximum ventilation. An enclosed outdoor shower adds to the beach experience.

June 20th - June 27th price reduction: Besides walking to the beach and ponds, our house is a five minute bike ride to Wellfleet town center - extremely easy access for a quick errand or breakfast out with the family. Wellfleet is known as the art gallery town. There are artist openings every Saturday evening with lovely parties that are open and free to visitors. There are also concerts all summer long at various locales throughout town, as well as, the Wellfleet Actors Theater, and the authentic 1950's-style drive-in movie, which doubles as a terrific flea market during the day.

The public bike trail is close by and available for walking, biking and roller blading, it stretches for 26 miles. Great Island (5 minute drive from the house) and the Autobahn Society (10 minute drive0 also provide exquisite scenic hiking and birding, as well as guided canoe trips and beautiful kayaking through miles of tidal marsh.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My family and I absolutely love this spacious, modern, and airy home and have visited it several times. Privately situated at the edge of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the house is an easy and pleasant walk through the woods to the private swimming at Higgins Pond and to family-oriented Gull Pond. The house has three beautiful decks. The front deck is wide and open and has a comfortable porch swing. My family’s favorite feature of the house is the large, enclosed outdoor shower located off this deck. After a long day at the beach or pond, we all race to see who gets to use it first. The second deck is at the rear of the house, off the dining room. Overlooking the woods, it has a gas grill and a lovely glass table with cushioned chairs. The house is cool, open, and immaculately clean. It has been impeccably furnished in a modern, minimalist Cape beach style. There are two cozy bedrooms downstairs, each of which easily sleeps two, and a full bath. The bright and breezy master bedroom is upstairs, along with another full bath and a large and comfortable sitting area with a tv and dvd player. The third, private deck is attached to the master bedroom. The owners, Richard and Elizabeth, are very friendly and accessible, and have been terrific to deal with. When we had a minor issue arise one year with one of the beds, Richard arranged to have it repaired immediately. We have especially loved the privacy and the simplicity of the house. Each time we have visited, we have left feeling renewed and refreshed.

A GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
What a beautifully maintained home; we rented this house in the fall and couldn’t have been more pleased. Every room was neat, clean and beautifully furnished. Loved the location, tucked into the woods, peaceful. Coffee on the porch was an added treat as we watch the leaves gently fall to the ground. Unfortunately, due to the time of year we couldn’t make use of the all the water apparatus stored in the basement but were content with the local shopping and wonderful restaurants. So close to P-Town and the very artsy Wellfleet center.
We would defiantly rent again, next time in the summer.

SERENE HAVEN IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
I just spent one of the most restful and sublime times on Cape Cod at the Rubin home in Wellfleet. The "cottage" is tucked away in the pines a short walk to ponds and wildlife. We swam and floated everyday at Gull and Higgins Ponds. You can drive or walk a little further to the Ocean too.

The house had everything we needed for a beach vacation including bikes and floats.

It is even prettier than the photos. Very airy, light and spacious. I especially loved the screened in porch.
The kitchen is so well stocked that even the foodies among us couldn't complain. They not only steamed lobsters but made a pie as well.

The ping pong table was a big hit and we played games on the one rainy night...
The spectacle of stars each night it didn't rain was awesome.

I will stay here again and highly recommend this listing. Liz was easy to deal with and her gracious home says a lot about her.

I rented the house for my husband and me plus our son, daughter-in-law & toddler grandson. The spaces worked extremely well w/ the two downstairs bedrooms & bath for our son & family & my husband & I had the upstairs. The house had plenty of space to spread out even tho' we never used the upstairs family room.

The screened porch was esp. terrific to have, as was the deck. The house is very tastefully furnished and clean. We all enjoyed the fact that the house is in a quiet area, but not far from Rt. 6, the pond, & it's very easy access to Wellfleet. We had a splendid, very relaxing time.

For dining, we'd recommend Mac's Shack (don't let the objects on the roof fool you) & Winslow's Tavern.

BLISS

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, wonderful location convenient to ponds, ocean beaches, town.

This home is surrounded by nature; birds chirping and singing, and soft breezes wafting through the pine and oak trees. On the screen porch, or on the deck, or in bed in the early morning, it is a truly serene and place.

The interior of this home is very tastefully decorated and a very comfortable place to relax between trips around the Cape.

I wish I was back there right now!

ALL WE COULD HAVE WISHED FOR

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed two beautiful weeks in this home in mid-September. It was even better than described - very light and airy with beautiful artwork. The location is very convenient yet quiet and secluded. Paths criss-cross the woods around the home leading to several area ponds within walking distance. We drove to the beach - Newcomb Hollow - which was very convenient in the fall with few visitors around. Easy parking, restroom facilities. The home is equally convenient to the bayside and the small town of Wellfleet which has many lovely galleries and small shops. Most of all we enjoyed exploring the nature trails on the bay. If you stay here be sure to visit PB Bistro Boulangerie on Route 6 for authentic french pastries. The owners provided many amenities which made our visit more pleasant - bicycles we used on the Cape Cod bike trail and wonderful beach chairs - lessening what we needed to bring along. The owners were responsive to all of our questions and made all of the arrangements easy and stress free.

Map

Car: necessary

This is a charming contemporary Cape on a private wooded lot abutting the National Seashore. From the front door you can take a short stroll on a quiet path through the woods to Gull Pond and the pristine sluice way that connects Gull and Higgins ponds. The ocean beach is either a five minute drive or a 20 minute peaceful walk through the National Seashore woods.
