One bedroom also has a nice water view.

If you haven't been to the Outer Cape and Wellfleet in particular, you are in for a treat! Over 60% of the town is protected as National Seashore so there is lots of undeveloped land for hiking, biking and bird watching. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. In places Wellfleet is only 3 miles wide with Bay beach on one side and Ocean on the other. When the tide is low you can walk way out on the bay side flats collecting shells or actually go clamming. Sit at Mayo Beach at a picnic table and watch the oystermen tending to their oyster grants. The ocean side is great for boogie boarding or even surfing at times. In the summer the days are usually warm and the nights cool. Enjoy the beautiful stars or get a permit and have a beach bonfire! If you are lucky enough to be here for a full moon you can watch the full moon rising while sitting on the ocean beach listening to the waves crash.
At the cottage you will find a full kitchen equipped with pots, pans,dishes, coffee maker, blender, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, small stove/oven combo & refrigerator. The Bathroom has a shower stall, no bath tub. There is cable television, a DVD player and & wireless internet. There is a new living room furniture and flat screen TV.

About Bill Harlor
My wife, Annmarie, and I both grew up in Massachusetts and moved to CT in 1997 for a job. We have two college age daughters. We have a summer home on the Cape in Harwich that we try to get to as much as possible. We look forward to eventually retiring to the Cape.

Why Bill Harlor chose Wellfleet
From 1993 - 2005 we rented a cottage in Wellfleet for a week for our summer vacation. For the last eight of those years we rented a cottage in the Wellfleeter. We loved it there so much that we came back year after year. In fact, we actually rented Unit 10 one summer and loved the unit. It was great every morning to look out the window and be able to see the ocean. When Unit 10 came on the market for sale we were excited to be able to purchase it.
