Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, outdoor shower, house sleeps 8
Everyone loves Wellfleet and this is one of the loveliest homes available in an extraordinary location. Set high and private on one and a half acres with 375 feet of a swimming beach below, this house with its 180 degree water views of Cape Cod Bay from 5 out of 8 rooms is the perfect retreat for families ready to unwind and enjoy all the surrounding natural beauty and activities of the outer Cape. The bay beach is ideal to fish, kayak, watercraft with Wellfleet's incredible National Seashore ocean beaches, fresh water ponds, & charming downtown just a few miles away. In a private community, this house is at the end of a road with no drive by traffic, and a driveway long enough to handle a boat trailer, cars and room for kids to play. Brand new big deck too! Neighborhood is perfect for very scenic walks, bike rides and star gazing. Central air, one level living is a gem for Grandparents and kids will love the large rec area in basement with ping pong and another TV. Internet, DVD. New 55' TV in living room.
Wonderful Year Round! : Snug, heated, and cozy year round with a wood burning fireplace in the living room and captivating water views, this house is a perfect destination Spring, Fall, and Winter. You may not be inclined to go to the beaches off season, but many of Wellfleet's restaurants stay open May through October. The Wellfleet Oyster Festival in mid October is a weekend celebration with music, a road race and art and craft fair.
Any Fall or Spring weekend is an opportune time to bike the range of trails in the area, from the 22 mile Cape Cod Rail Trail, which is a paved surface with few hills going from Wellfleet all the way back to Dennis with stops in towns along the way, or for the more aggressive bikers, the Provincetown Lands Trails, a spectacular and challenging 5 mile course through hills,dunes, and wetlands. Scenic but rigorous!
Another tremendous natural resource just a few miles down the road is the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, which has 5 miles of trails offering incredible bird watching opportunities and educational programs. Because two thirds of Wellfleet is in the National Seashore, twenty square miles of it or thousands of acres have trails that ramble through pine woods, salt marshes, and towering white dunes along the shoreline, all providing the chance to discover and enter wildlife habitats. For one of the ultimate wildlife eco- trips, no one should leave the Outer Cape without having gone on a Whale Watch, which are run out of Provincetown, about 25 minutes away. Few experiences compare with seeing one of these magnificent creatures swimming and splashing right up close to the boat! Indeed, Wellfleet remains a mysterious and captivating place for both the intellectually curious and the casual beach goer.
If its more humanistic pursuits you're after, a jump in the car can take you a few miles down the road to Chequesset Yacht and Country Club, which is a fancy name for a very low key public golf course that is open mostly year round and has some nice water views from the course. Or swing over to the Beachcomber at Cahoon Hollow Beach and hear some live music, eat some famous Wellfleet oysters, and revel with the beach crowd. However you choose to spend your time in Wellfleet, you will keep a part of it with you long after you're vacation is over.
