Overview

Wellfleet Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, full-sized futon on screened porch,1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6.

Privacy and Peace prevail in this quaint , turn of the century Cape Cod cottage that is 13 miles from P-Town and a 5-minute drive to Wellfleet's famous glacial ponds and ocean beaches. AC is not necessary as we're located atop a hill that allows pleasant cross-breezes. Amenities are: indoor-outdoor showers; Cable TV and WIFI; deck with a view of Wellfleet Harbor;a gas grill, a large yard with a hammock and a tire swing for the kids'; Washer/Dryer; fully equipped galley kitchen. Walk through the yard to a harbor beach that's across from the newly renovated Wellfleet pier. A 20-minute walk along the beach over Uncle Tim's bridge takes you to Wellfleet Ctr. Biking and walking trails abound. Wellfleet Historical society organizes a walk through the village with information on the history of Wellfleet. If you choose to walk without a guide the Chamber of Commerce offers walking maps covering the many beach, island and wooded walks. The Audubon society also has a beautiful walking trail.

Bicycle trails: Provincetown has an incredible bike trail for the more hearty that winds its way through sand dunes that are unique to this area. There is also a bike trail that begins in Wellfleet.

Ferries: There is a ferry leaving from Provincetown in the early am that goes into Boston. It goes without saying that Boston's historical sites are absolutely outstanding and a must-see. There is a ferry returning to P-town in the early evening. Ferry service is also available to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island within a 45 minute drive from Wellfleet.) Please note that we are a housekeeping cottage. I supply towels but not sheets for two full size beds-a full size futon-a single bed.

About Stephenie Ellsworth

We inherited this property from Carl's parents who built it as their retirement home in 1964. Now our son lives with us and helps to maintain the property. We had previously owned Gutsy Benders Restaurant in Wellfleet and are now retired. We have four sons who pitch in to help when necessary. Carl is a professional Keyboard player and frequently plays in and around Wellfleet.

Stephenie Ellsworth purchased this cottage in 1964

Why Stephenie Ellsworth chose Wellfleet

Heatherhill was named by Carl's parents because when it was built the only sign of life on this hill was a field of Heather. Carl's dad believed the location offered protection from water damage should there be a hurricane or astronomical tide. The hill also offered a lovely view of Wellfleet Harbor and our gorgeous sunsets.

What makes this cottage unique

There can't be enough said about the peacefullness afforded by living here. Hummingbirds, woodpecker, etc. call this home. Should we have the desire we can walk from our home into the ctr. of Wellfleet. Every evening there is a breathtaking view of the sun setting.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This cottage was perfect! The hosts were warm and kind and helpful in providing suggestions for activities and restaurants, and attending to any needs we had there. A lovely, well-equipped cottage made our stay a terrific one. A short walk to the beach on the Cape side was a bonus. We would return again and again...

Our cottage is located in the Cape Cod that Patti Page sang about. The only interruption are the singing birds. We are a single cottage not located in a colony. We are 5 minutes away from Wellfleet Village and all the ocean and pond beaches that Wellfleet has to offer. Wellfleet has become the art center of Cape Cod featuring more galleries than any other town on the outer Cape.

Other Activities: whale watching, canoeing, square dancing, sand dune tours, drive-in theater, monster flea market, historic walking tours
