The Real Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

The light, the light, the light…..

Wellfleet is known for its golden light, and this house captures it more beautifully than any I’ve seen on the outer cape – and I have seen many!

It doesn’t hurt that all the wood is honey colored and that the shadows dance across the light colored walls and cathedral ceiling.

Another thing I loved was the quite… The wind going through the trees is just lovely, and it’s so nice to wake up, look out the windows and see the trees swaying…. No traffic, no noise – just the breeze and nature sounds.

This space and location has three beautiful elements; it feels like you’ve found a haven in the woods; but if you stroll to the end of the entry lane, and cross the narrow Road (Gull Pond Road), you can find your way to the kettle ponds.

(leave early while there’s still lots of light, so you can get lost….)

They all remind me so much of Walden Pond.

It’s little wonder that Thoreau found such inspiration down these same laneways….

Finally, you can take a cycle to the beach…..

The magic three: woods, lakes, beaches….

I came to Wellfleet as a musician looking for inspiration and did my best work in this house. This is what people call the “real” Cape. Artists gather here because of the golden light, but creative folks of every ilk seem to find something really special here too.

However, being on the “real” cape may include having to settle for a tiny dimly-lit, over-priced “saltbox.”

That’s why I was so delighted with this house – it’s new, beautifully equipped and spotless with tons of room - airy and light….

The owner is a long-time Wellfleet resident and will happily share his love of this land with you, and just about anything else for that matter, including his home-grown tomatoes.

Wellfleet is its own very special place, and this haven in the woods is as good as Wellfleet gets.

Perfectly sized for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect base camp for a July family vacation. After searching high and low for a house large enough to accommodate two infants/toddlers, three parents, and two grandparents, we settled on Eric's house. This turned out to be a great decision: the house was modern, clean, and well kept, and was just the right size for keeping three generations together while still giving everyone their space.

The location is perfect, about three minutes by car from Gull Pond, ten minutes from Newcomb Hollow Beach, and five minutes from the center of Wellfleet. Literally, if I'd looked at a map and picked the perfect spot for a Wellfleet house, I would've picked this spot exactly. It's on the north end of Wellfleet, which is also means your day trips to Provincetown will be fifteen minutes shorter -- a huge plus when you're driving back sunburned and hungry and raring for a lobster roll. Speaking of lobster rolls, the house is super close to both Moby Dick's and PJ's, so you never have to go longer than five minutes without a hunk of juicy lobster tail if you don't want to.

The house doesn't have any spectacular seaside or harbor views, but it's pleasant and quiet, and it's set in the woods, so if you're lucky you'll get to see the local wild turkeys and even a fox going about their business. The kitchen is fully stocked and there's a propane grill on the deck that'll make short work of a burger or a tuna steak.

Eric, the owner, lives nearby (at least during the summers), and is a gracious and pleasant host. He showed us around, answered questions, and stopped by occasionally to say hi, but also gave us our space. He was easy to communicate with and gave us our entire safety deposit back quickly and without any fuss.

If you're looking to spend some time enjoying all Wellfleet has to offer, this place is for you! It worked out great for us, and if we can rally the whole family again, we'll definitely be staying here.

Great House in Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a light, airy and very clean house with a great layout. While the owner lives nearby, the house felt very private and away from the busy summer traffic. At the same time it was close to town, ponds and ocean beaches.

There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and the master on the first floor which worked well for our family. The house has a well equipped kitchen on the open layout first floor. We loved the large dinning table which worked well for both lobster dinners and large jigsaw puzzles. We suggest ordering to-go from Moby's if you don't want to cook the lobster yourself.

After 30 years of renting all sorts of houses in Wellfleet, this was our second year staying at this house and we hope to return next year. Our family has a variety of interests and requirements but this house satisfied everyone.

Wonderful House, Terrific Owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a very beautiful and well cared for house in an idyllic location. Quiet, except for the rustling of the trees and birdsong. We had a great vacation here, and enjoyed the comfortable, well equipped house and lovely deck. We were a group of friends spending a week together and we were delighted that there was great space to socialize in, and also enough space to do your own thing, if you wanted to. All the bedrooms are well appointed, comfortable and airy. We loved the proximity to beautiful kettle ponds and gorgeous ocean beaches. The owner was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

Love the house, owner very friendly

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 5 days for a family get-together. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed to cook. Large dining room was great for meals and the back deck is completely private. Location is great - about 1.5 miles to a fantastic beach that was secluded all week. Right by all Wellfleet restaurants.

Eric (owner) was helpful when we called and left us completely alone the rest of the week. He was great despite us coming only for 5 days, and he even offered to let us stay for free past checkout since no one was coming immediately after us!

Thanks, Eric. Great vacation for the whole family.

Beautiful House in Gorgeous Setting!

  • 5 of 5

I spent many summer in Wellfleet as a child. I wanted a house that was close to the best beaches, best ponds and also close to town. The location of this house is perfect! It is very clean and open with lots of light and has everything you need for a perfect family vacation--lots of stuff to cook with, boardgames, DVD player and stereo, blankets, wireless internet, a great deck with BBQ and picnic table. The set up is great with 3 nice sized rooms upstairs (all with ample closet/shelf space) and a big bathroom, and then a master suite downstairs that is huge and has a big closet and bathroom. The owners are great to deal with and were very helpful before and during our stay.I would definitely recommend this rental!
