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.

Week in the Woods of Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful October week here. The home is lovely. It's tucked away in the Wellfleet woods, and it's really a world apart. The home is nicely appointed and very comfortable. The living room is beach house modern, while the upstairs den was cozy; there was a space for every mood. Loved watching the birds at the feeder, and even had ping pong tournaments in the basement while waiting for the laundry. The week was restful and restorative, and we were never too far from something interesting, including Wellfleet Oysterfest. Thank you for a very nice stay, and a week we will always hold dear.

A lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned to our home in the U.K. after staying for 8 nights in this lovely home.

We found the Rubin house to be warm and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay here. Prepared our breakfasts in the nicely appointed kitchen and slept so well at night.

Also found the house to be perfectly placed on the Cape as it's situated about mid-way along the peninsula and so it's a relatively easy drive to Chatham at the start of the Cape and Provincetown on the tip.

The lovely town and harbour of Wellfleet is just a 5 minute drive away and we spent many happy hours around the beaches there. Also just down the lane from the house is another wonderful beach. We walked there most mornings, hardly ever met another soul and just watched the Atlantic breakers. Spotted seals,guillemots and geese heading South. Just wonderful.

May we just mention a real find for us too. A 10 minute drive from Elizabeth's house is PB's restaurant and boulongerie. A genuine French Bistro situated here on the Cape. We bought all our bread and pastries here and had two lovely evenings where we dined.

Although we have toured New England many times and this was our third time on the Cape, we have always stayed at Inns or Hotels. This was our first time renting a house and it was a great success. It was a pleasant thing to do so we think we will do it again .

My stay September 2014

  • 5 of 5
I so enjoyed my stay in your wonderful home. If one is looking for peace and silence, except for that of nature, this is definitely the place. Nestled in the trees, sitting on the deck, listening to the voices of the birds; wind whistling through the trees - absolutely what I was looking for; also, being comfortable even thought I was alone for a number of days - my guests loved everything as well. I relay this, because as a nature lover, I was delighted, a fox ran across the back yard one morning - your house is truly a nature lover's paradise. Thank you also for the care in making sure that everything was supplied and as described in your rental post. I would recommend highly -

Much more than a rental house!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week vacation here, and although the weather was not the best, the house was really very lovely and more than met our needs. We loved the private and quiet setting, and were amazed to find the house so nicely furnished and decorated with beautiful artwork. We would definitely love to come back!

Fabulous peaceful summer vacation house.

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely wonderful home, beautifully appointed, nestled in the woods, and walking distance to beautiful ponds - we had a glorious two-week vacation, and really look forward to going back. The house is spacious, very tastefully decorated, and provides several different places to relax: on the screened-in porch with a good book; on the deck for an outdoor meal from the grill; in the comfortable living room or the tv room upstairs. Everyone found just the perfect spot. But while the house itself is lovely, it's the location that make the home so special. The house is only a few minutes from Wellfleet Center, but feels completely isolated. There are paths through the woods leading essentially from the front door, and one can meander all the way to the shore, or stop at the ponds for a swim. I really can't say enough wonderful things -- our family had one of our best vacations ever!

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.
