Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + 1 extra Queen bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) very child-friendly.

From the Bay side of the house you can see all the way beyond Lieutenant's Island, Great Island, and at night see the lights of Boston in the far distance. Our house is furnished for comfortable living and is suitable for families and couples. The Master Bedroom, on the top floor, has a deck in front and to the side. In the winter enjoy a Wood Fire in the Master Bedroom and see the extraordinary Cape Light from the many windows. The house has artwork and a homey feeling which enhances your time 'away from it all'. It is fully heated and fully air-conditioned so you can savor the delights of the Cape in the summer and in the winter months.

We encourage small family groups of six or less, and provide baby equipment if it is needed. For the active visitors, there is a beach in front of the house, merely walk down our two-second path and you'll be there. Turn to the right and walk 15 minutes over a footbridge to the center of Wellfleet. For those who prefer lake swimming, the famous kettle ponds of Wellfleet are a real joy. You can even rent kayaks on Gull Pond, paddle to a sluiceway and end up in Higgins Pond which you'll have pretty much to yourself for swimming or paddling. It is possible to find the gap in the rushes to kayak into quiet Williams Pond from Higgins. Total delight.

Perfect for a couple as a Get-Away Romantic spot.

Perfect for a family with teens, or younger children.

Mature couples will find the house suits their wish for comfort, cleanliness and ease of living.

Local tradesmen say, 'Wow, you have the best location in Wellfleet.' The views are breath-taking.

About Toni

We fell in love with this house as renters, and found ourselves the owners in 1998. We love to use the house ourselves and have been able to place works of art in it from many of the places we've travelled. We don't let it get cluttered because we want others to feel that it is their home during their stay so we made it comfortable for families with kids, and relaxing and casually elegant for adults.

I'm Toni. One of my favorite things is talking about Wellfleet, its joys and delights, and describing our house to share some of its pleasures.

Toni purchased this house in 1998

Why Toni chose Wellfleet

Oh, My Goodness. Anyone who knows Wellfleet knows the answer to this, but for those just coming to Wellfleet for the first time, it is a lovely town, with art galleries, fine dining for adults and excellent casual choices for families who come right from the beach. The Library is a wonderful place to go when it's raining and has programs for kids and a full schedule of lectures for adults. You can find 3 different types of swimming areas, the famous fresh-water Kettle Ponds, like Gull Pond, which are really sizable lakes, the Cape Cod Bay beach in front of our house, and all the ocean beaches which are a 5 minute drive away. The Cape Cod Bike Trail is nearby and you can walk to Town from the house along the shore, crossing the lovely wooden footbridge called Uncle Tim's Bridge. Our house is ideal for five or six people, and even has a spot for a person who can't handle stairs.

What makes this house unique

Our house has a location which is extraordinary. It sits on a low bluff, overlooking Cape Cod Bay, Wellfleet Inner and Outer Harbors, Indian Neck, Great Island and Lieutenant's Island, so sunsets are not to be missed. We face due West and cocktails on the deck at sunset are our favorite time. We can swim, sail and kayak right in front of our house, but if you like fresh water, the Wellfleet Ponds are gorgeous. They are really fresh-water lakes, and some, five minutes from the house, are large lakes. And there's the ocean, the National Seashore, the Audobon Society, the Theater known as W.H.A.T. We love the local fish and shellfish, and being with family who rent other houses within a minute or two of us.

Many ask if we have wifi. Yes, we do. We also have three-zone heating, and summer air conditioning.

There is an outdoor shower for after the beach, and access through the lower level where towels and bathing suits can be hung.

For winter renters we have two functioning fireplaces and provide firewood for our guests. A Blue House Book is crammed with suggestions of places to eat, things to do and useful services. We keep it up-to-date and update our favorites each time we are there.

Great House, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Vacation rentals are all about surprises, both good and bad as we all know. This property has great owners and all the surprises were the good kinds. If you love the Cape, you will love this property. Just bring some good reading and your walking shoes or a bike and you will be very happy sending a week or two here.

Spectacular House, Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We entered the house late on a sunlit afternoon, in time to catch the fabulous light playing all over the living room as well as catch one of the many stellar sunsets we enjoyed in our weeklong stay. All we had to do was sit on the patio deck, which still had garden flowers on this mid-Oct week, or sit in the sun-soaked living room, and stare at the harbor for as long as we wanted, and be so happy! For that matter, our master bedroom, and the upstairs deck afforded the same views. So many choices.

We were a family of 3 couples: our two grown daughters and their husbands, and we parents. We cooked together, watched the Red Sox playoffs, played guitar and sang, used the fireplace, sat and read-all in the living room/kitchen/dining area. As well, we had plenty of privacy when needed; the two upstairs bedrooms were plenty far from the one in the basement. Toni and her husband have excellent taste. The paintings, furniture, bed coverings, rugs, light switches, dishes! All are tasteful, attractive, whimsical, comfortable and inviting.

And the location. Well, being able to walk into Wellfleet every day, over a scenic trail and Uncle Tim's Bridge, was an enjoyable plus. We were close to the many bike rides and trails we wanted to explore, had 2 markets to choose from, both in Wellfleet, and plenty of things to do and explore, all within easy striking distance.

Toni and her husband keep a welcoming, warm home. It was spotless when we entered, easy to maintain, and stocked full of everything we needed for our week. We hope to return, and were SO glad we found it for our glorious fall vacation.

Perfect Fall Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We needed a relaxing late fall break from our hectic schedules. Over the past three or four years, Cape Cod has become our breakaway destination. We've tried many houses in many Cape Cod locations but we think we've found the perfect one. It's called "Fairwinds" and is located in Wellfleet on a beach beside the harbor.

I love cruise ships and "Fairwinds" reminds me of an elegant yacht. Of course, it's much more spacious than a yacht but entering the house one has the feeling of being on a ship. There's lots of open space and light fills the house from the many windows. There are several decks from which to watch activity in the harbor: fishing boats, kayaks, sailboats, clam diggers, soaring gulls, lapping waves. But, unlike most yachts, "Fairwinds" also boasts two wood-burning fireplaces. The house has a comfortable living-dining room and a kitchen equipped with all the amenities, as well as two bathrooms and two large and one small bedroom. There's even a beautifully planted garden overlooking the harbor with a birdbath and a birdfeeder.

Although many of the restaurants in and around Wellfleet are closed or have limited hours at this time of year, we found enough open to keep us happy - the unpretentious Bookstore and Restaurant and the homey Lighthouse as well as the superlative PL Boulangerie, all closeby. PB Boulangerie is located a ten minute drive from "Fairwinds" and was so good that we dined there four times in ten nights, including Thanksgiving dinner.

When not enjoying the house, we spent our time doing many of our favorite Cape Cod things: strolling Provincetown, gallery looking in Chatham, antique hunting in Yarmouth. We also managed to fit in some of our favorite nature walks: Pilgrim Spring Trail, Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and the walks at the Cape Cod National Seashore Salt Pond Center.

Best of all was returning "home" to "Fairwinds" at the end of each day to a glass of wine and the glorious lingering sunsets from one of the decks.

Ideal Off Season Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife Alida and I have stayed at this extraordinary home for five years. As a previous Wellfleet resident who currently lives in Brooklyn, I cherish this town most in the off season - when tranquility and the raw, simple beauty of the landscape/seascape are unforgettable. For this reason all of our returns to ‘Fairwinds’ have been in April and March.

The home itself is ideally situated on a bluff that hovers high above Wellfleet harbor, providing outstanding views of journeying fishing boats, oyster diggers, Jeremy’s Point, Great Island and Wellfleet Bay. Sunsets from this vantage point are tremendous. The many, many windows of the house insure picturesque views from inside at all times, and watching the weather and atmosphere change over the water is an intrinsic and mystical part of an off-season retreat here. When you are ready to head outdoors, throw on a sweater or light jacket and head down to the beach - just a few steps from the back deck. Take a right at the water and walk through the marsh and woods of Duck Creek to town center taking Uncle Tim’s bridge. Go left and circle around the Cove beach to Indian Neck point.

Modern, spacious & bright, the house is creatively decorated and decidedly uplifting. This place does not feel like a summer rental inside, which is important in the chillier months: it is comfortable, warm and inviting. All the amenities are at hand, including great cookware, a serious Weber grill, washing machine & dryer, dishwasher, sound & video system and copious amounts of household ‘stuff’ like paper towels, aluminum foil, etc., etc.. Basically, all you need to bring are your clothes, towels and sheets – everything else is there, including a hand-compiled notebook of instructions and recommendations.

Although the town is pretty quiet in March and April there are a handful of good restaurants open as well as Wellfleet Market. We enjoy picking up some lunch from town and heading over to eat at the ocean or bay, sometimes from Wellfleet points, sometimes from Truro points. Walks on the beach are great this time of year and often you will have the sand all to yourself. Last visit we lucked out and followed a family of whales jumping around in the water off of Mayo Beach.

You will want to return to this house again and again for sure. In addition, the owners Toni & David are wonderful to deal with and fully committed to making their visitors feel at home.

The fun and galleries of Provincetown are only 20 minutes away. This location has it all. You can bird watch, take the Whale Watching Cruise, walk in the Audubon Society Nature area, and eat really well in Wellfleet, Orleans and Provincetown. Ride the Cape Cod BikeTrail, watch amazing sunsets from your deck or from Race Point, rent kayaks and launch in front of the house. Swim in the fresh water ponds (lakes, really), there is so much to do for adults and for families. And you can walk to Town from the house!

Wellfleet has a cinema, a drive-in (yes, really!) miniature golf, wonderful shops for pottery, crafts, clothing, fresh fish and produce, weekly square dancing on the Pier, a very sweet 4th of July parade, and, of course, OYSTER FEST in October. Our favorite food: Wellfleet Oysters. Yum!
