Enjoy breathtaking ocean views from every room in this charming and historic home. A short walk down the path to one of the most beautiful private Beaches on Cape Cod, you're also right across the street from incredible hiking trails through the National Seashore Park. Nestled among the scrub pines and rose bushes, the house sits high on the dunes overlooking the ocean. The house consists of a master bedroom with queen-size bed, two upstairs bedrooms with a total of three single beds and one double bed, one full bath (downstairs), new half bath upstairs, full kitchen, living room, sun room (with expansive 180% ocean views), large deck, enclosed outdoor shower, fully enclosed back deck, and lovely yard with picnic area - all with sweeping views. Wake up to the sun rising over the ocean, spend the day boogie boarding, surfing and relaxing on the beach, watch whales from the deck as you enjoy evening drinks, then let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep!
Wake up to the sunrise over the water and have dinner watching the sunset over the forest! Watch whales breaching from the deck as you eat and let the sound of the waves put you to sleep! Ride a bike to the General store to get fresh baked goods and produce, then work of those calories boogie boarding, surfing or hiking! Have an afternoon massage on the private deck overlooking the ocean or just take a nap on the beach! And a short hike through the woods takes you to one of Wellfleet's famous fresh water kettle ponds for a refreshing dip before dinner!
I'm an engineer, who grew up in St. Louis, but whom has always had the Atlantic in my bones due to many vacations to the Outer Banks. Upon discovering the Cape later in life, it's where I want to be when I retire. I love the glorious Cape summer as well as the wicked winter storms.
This cottage is nearly perfect from my perspective. The view is something akin to that from a lonely lighthouse, especially in winter, when there are few on the Outer Cape. The location is idyllic, and the Wellfleet community is wonderful.
Both ocean and woods combine to create an peaceful oasis, with a light unique to the Cape.
