***************************

Nestled in a grassy dune overlooking one of the most exquisite swimming beaches on Cape Cod Bay, this charming all-season cottage is the perfect retreat for those who long for the pure simplicity of casual beach living. Bright, airy interior, French doors, large over sized windows and beamed cathedral ceilings complement an eclectic mix of comfortable furnishings. Conveniences include washer/dryer, dishwasher and fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy glorious, unobstructed views of surf, sand, and the dramatically changing cape light. Perfect for nature lovers, writers, artists, and children; this is a peaceful sanctuary where curtains flutter softly in the breeze, flower boxes overflow with brilliant color, and endless summer afternoons can be spent just steps from your front door, exploring the water's edge.

Windy Knoll: Many of our guests enjoy waking to the early morning peacefulness of radiant skies and gently rolling tides. Revel in a quiet morning swim, a tranquil beach meditation, or an unhurried walk along the shore as ebbing currents slowly reveal the elemental beauty of Wellfleet’s magnificent tidal flats. No need to pack the car for distant beaches when you reside at water’s edge - just sit back and watch the noontime sun bring circles of vividly colored umbrellas, picnic baskets, and the joyful sounds of laughter. Children will find plenty of new friends while enjoying endless hours searching for seashells, turtles, and hermit crabs living within the warm tidal pools. Spend your days swimming, kayaking, windsurfing …or just relaxing. As night falls, relax with soothing rain-shower under the stars, then cuddle up on the waterside deck, amid the flicker of candles, and enjoy the moonlight gently shimmering on the bay.

Wellfleet: Meander through the festive town of Wellfleet and you’ll discover a multitude of interesting art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Fishing excursions and sailing lessons are available at the Pier. Rent boats, kite/surf boards, fishing poles, kayaks, bikes, etc. Golf or sail at Chequessett Yacht and Country Club. Catch some family laughter at the weekly square dance on the pier, or check out the books and cultural events at the Wellfleet Library. Spend an evening at the Wellfleet Drive-In, or discover the perfect treasure at the flea market. Explore the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Catch Bluefish, Striped Bass, or go deep-sea Tuna fishing. Experience early morning yoga classes on the beach, or stop by the gym for a quick work out. Go bird watching ~ whale-watching ~ seal watching. Artistic expression is everywhere! There are always musical, theatrical, or children’s events happening both here in Wellfleet as well as in many other towns on the Cape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We cannot thank you enough for sharing Windy Knoll with us! It is paradise. We absolutely loved it and found it extremely difficult to leave. Everything about it is perfect. We actually had the first real vacation since having children. Being right on the beach allowed us to manage naps while still enjoying incredibly relaxing views. We will savor the memories for a long time.

We loved Windy Knoll!!

The house was very charming and ideally situated on the water. Perfect for a family of four!

We loved our time at Windy Knoll and could not imagine staying anywhere else in Wellfleet. We will be coming back for years to come.

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5
The perfect vacation destination to truly relax and unwind...

The cottage is beautiful -- true Cape Cod feel but with so much more that lends to its own unique style (e.g., claw foot tub, farmer's sink, etc), along with the interesting eclectic decorations --- you could spend hours just absorbing the inside.

The gorgeous deck overlooking the bay is where all of your senses become heightened -- the sounds of the tides and the birds, the smell of the salty ocean, and the view of the bay, jetties, and surrounding inlets.

The tides provide you with interesting options depending on the time of day ... from walking along the beach collecting shells to wading off the beach steps for a swim. Rinsing off in the cedar outdoor shower with a rain shower head afterwards, perfection!

I have rented from the owners of Windy Knoll for the last few years --- it is their personal touch and their desire to ensure that every guest enjoys their cottage as much as they do that takes the vacation to the next level.

I plan to return to Windy Knoll for years to come ... there is no better place to "turn work off" and completely recharge... It is very hard to leave this sanctuary --- trust me, you will savor every last moment...

A very romantic place!

  • 5 of 5
Windy Knoll was a special autumn treat for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on a very beautiful beach. Swimming was great. The water was surprisingly warm for the time of year and we loved our daily beach walks. The house itself is absolutely marvelous and loaded with lots of charm and personality. It’s very comfortable, and extremely clean. We enjoyed everything about the place, including the very well appointed kitchen. When preparing meals, we would open all the windows and enjoy the sounds of the beach while looking out over the incredibly gorgeous seascape. When the sun is shining, the whole place shimmers with a very luminous light reflected off the bay. It’s something we still talk about. The huge windows were a great choice because the views are extraordinary. We also had some very relaxing evenings sitting by the fire playing board games and watching incredibly colorful sunsets. Great accommodations, lovely hosts, and an ideal setting! Overall, it was a very peaceful, romantic holiday.

We love Windy Knoll!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second summer at Windy Knoll and we loved it! The house is very tastefully remodeled. It’s comfortable and charming and reminds me of something out of Coastal Living magazine. The views are amazing, and the beach is great! Our kids spend many hours collecting shells, rocks and anything else they can find. My favorite time of day is early morning when we take our coffee out to the deck and watch the sun light up the bay. Quite beautiful! On several occasions we biked from the house to town for ice cream. It’s also quite close to the Rail Trail. There are some very interesting shops and art galleries in Wellfleet and this year we picked up some great gifts. We hope to return to Windy Knoll for many summers to come!

Windy Knoll Summer 2008

  • 5 of 5
Windy Knoll exceeds promises. Its charm as a vintage Cape Cod beach home, carefully restored and tastefully appointed, is matched only by the natural advantages of a beachfront, bayside location. The cottage is easily accessible and ideally situated for adventures in either direction along Rte 6. Worth mentioning are the close proximity of the home to the trailhead of the Cape Cod Bike Rail Trail and public clay tennis courts.

Loved Windy Knoll

  • 5 of 5
Hi everyone, I just wanted to put a quick note in about how much my family & I loved Windy Knoll. If you think the pictures are beautiful, wait until you get to Windy Knoll and see it for yourself! The view is amazing. We enjoyed both high tide and low tide. We have stayed on the cape before but this was, by far, the best beach vacation we have ever had! Wellfleet is a great town to stay in as well. Really good restaurants and the public beaches are great too. I would highly recommend Windy Knoll for your families next vacation!

********************************

Windy Knoll is located directly on the sandy shores of Cape Cod Bay in an area of Wellfleet known as Indian Neck. Use your private beach stairs to access the warm, calm waters of this amazingly expansive beach. Search for famous Wellfleet oysters, walk for miles, relax in beach chairs, or launch your kayak from the house. Ours is considered a private beach, but we are located adjacent to the public area of Burton Baker Beach which means children of all ages will have a multitude of playmates to meet as they explore the warm waters and abundant sea life. The bustling little town of Wellfleet, as well as the incredibly vibrant ocean beaches are all within a few minutes away.
