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.

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.

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.
