ENCHANTING 18TH CENTURY GARRET, STRONG TIES TO ARTISTS' COLONY

Wellfleet Studio Rental Photos and Description

En Suite Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

LOCATED IN THE HEART OF WELLFLEET, our 18th c. antique cape style home is one of the most photographed properties in town! Situated in the 'Town Center' conservation area we offer spectacular views of historic Duck Creeke. Abundant with aquatic wildlife and shoreline birds this tidal saltwater inlet is perfect for kayaking.

OUR 18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE GARRET is impeccably maintained with all the charm of yesteryear, rustic yet comfortable and newly refurbished. The “Garret” is a fully independent living space in the upper level of our home. It has a private entrance and features a 'U' shaped, en suite layout surprisingly spacious separating the sleeping area from the kitchen. Four sash windows welcome luscious salt air breezes and a state of the art cooling system for when you need that too! Three skylights generate gorgeous light and airiness—just great for listening to live birdsong up in the trees!

THE SHIP'S BELL SETS A NAUTICAL MOOD for you as it chimes from the Congregational Church bell tower much like it did onboard ships at sea since the early part of the 15th century. Our guests have found the experience both soothing and curious.

FEWER THAN 50 STEPS TO UNCLE TIM'S (walking) BRIDGE will set your journey across to Hamblin Island and all the way to Chipman’s Cove by footpath along the creeke at lowtide. Be sure to stop along the way to sign the Bench Book quietly waiting for the unsuspecting passerby inspired by the open salt air and visual beauty. You will love the soft, sinuous landscape as you explore the pastoral outdoors in a truly picturesque setting.

WELLFLEET IS KNOWN FOR IT’S OYSTERS, ART GALLERIES and critically acclaimed theater. Experience spectacular sunsets and a romantic beach fire on the bay. Walk to gourmet restaurants, fresh fish markets and village shopping. Yoga studios, massage therapists and acupuncturists are conveniently located right here in the neighborhood for both relaxing and rejuvenating your spirit and soul.

OUR HOME IS A SHORT STROLL TO MAYO BEACH, THE HARBOR AND MAIN STREET in Wellfleet Center where you can spend your time swimming, playing tennis, basketball or listening to free live music events at Baker’s Field Tent. Wellfleet is brimming with concerts at numerous venues throughout town all summer long. We boast an outstanding public library, host to poets, scholars, historians and classical musicians who offer us insight into their life’s work during the season long schedule.

HOP IN THE CAR FOR QUICK AND EASY ACCESS TO WELLFLEET'S UNIQUE KETTLE PONDS, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, the Audubon Society and magnificent ocean beaches along the Cape Cod National Seashore occupying 61% of Wellfleet's total landmass.

WE OFFER A PERFECT SPOT FOR YOUR NEXT GETAWAY!

We currently have 7 day, Saturday to Saturday bookings available.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!

Why The Owner chose Wellfleet

We made this our primary residence because we love the light, the dunes, the soft landscape, the cultural community and the people. Our strong ties with the Provincetown Artists' Colony stems from a 40 year relationship with visual artists we have represented and exhibited in our gallery. Today, we are private dealers, curating exhibitions at offsite venues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Benn and I had a wonderful time discovering the beauty and charm of Wellfleet. Under your gracious tutelage Benn and I discovered fabulous beaches, great restaurants and amazing sunsets. We thank you for all of this and more. It was a pleasure to meet you and to stay in your gracious home. We enjoyed the garden, delightful antics of the birds, the honeybees and the gorgeous art work. What a vacation and how lucky we were to happen upon your special home! Please let us know if your travels ever take you to Philadelphia. We've got lots of great art in our city to share!

Perfect for Kayak Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week with Brenda and Sally in their Garret in Wellfleet. It was the perfect launching point for our daily kayaking trips. We were able to launch the kayaks right across the street into the creek (as long as we minded the tides!). The Garret is located on the second floor of a beautiful, yellow-painted antique cape that is set across from the picturesque walking bridge in Wellfleet center. The Garret is nicely furnished and equipped, very clean and well-maintained. We appreciated the comfortable bed and luxury linens. The space is sunny with many windows looking out into the trees (and nice quality darkening shades). The air conditioning worked well to cool down when needed. There is a small but very adequate kitchen area that suited us well for breakfast and light meals when we didn't eat out at the many good nearby restaurants. Brenda is a gracious, helpful host - we enjoyed getting to know her. The town center location is nice especially if you appreciate being able to leave your car behind as it is an easy walk to the grocery store, the pier and other town amenities. We will definitely be back!

Romantic Vacation for 2

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a relaxing vacation on the Cape. The Garret offered a comfortable homebase for my husband and I for our week in Wellfleet. We were able to use the kitchen for our breakfast and lunch and walk to the Wellfleet restaurants for dinner. (we like Mac's).
The space in the Garret is exactly as described with antique charm and slanted ceilings. My husband is 5'11" and didn't have any issues with the ceiling height. We slept with the windows open and had a cool Cape Cod cross breeze. On the hottest days the AC was very efficient. Wifi is fast and we watched a movie on the flat screen/DVD on a rainy night.
Our hostess Brenda was so lovely and got us acquainted with the space and left us to our vacation. There is a steep set of steps to walk up/down but was not an obstacle for me even at 7 months pregnant.
We would defiantely return to the Garret next summer if we could fit the baby and his accessories but we'll have to see what next summer brings. We highly recommend staying here as a romantic 2 person space with the conveniences of the town.

Delightful Garret retreat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week with Brenda and Sally in their very cozy and clean garret apartment. We were very pleased with our accommodations, they exceeded our expectations. Considering it is a garret the apartment was very airy and light. The kitchen simple but had everything we needed. As Brenda notes in her description of the apartment the stairs are a bit steep and the ceiling is low for someone six ft or taller but for us these possed no problem only added to the charm of the space.

Being able to easily walk to everything important to us, the market, the historical society, restaurants, the beach, ice cream was wonderful. We spent very little time in the car but biked, walked, and even took the bus to P-town rather than drive and struggle with traffic and parking. Having Uncle Tim's bridge and the river right across the street was a treat. Seeing the tide go out and the mud flats appear revealing oysters, mussels and the true rhythm of the ocean was wonderful. We hope to return and are very thankful that Brenda and Sally have created such a peaceful little retreat in the village of Wellfleet.

Glorious July

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the garrett for two weeks in July. The location is fabulous - an easy walk into town as well as conveniently placed for a quick get a way to other towns on the Cape. It has tremendous character and charm. The bed (of which we are very particular) was super comfortable, high-quality linens, and plenty of pillows. The kitchen was perfect and we were able to prepared simple breakfasts and lunches as we usually went out for dinner. Nice wall mounted TV and comfortable seating for relaxing. Nice collections of DVD's and books although we brought our own. Our hostess was available and very helpful but not intrusive. The steep steps to the garrett could prove difficult for some. We enjoyed it so very much we are renting it again for two weeks this summer!!

Lovely, charming, romantic garret

  • 5 of 5
This charming garret was so comfortable, and the owners thought of every little thing to make it so. From the big comfy bed to a spotless kitchen where we ate our breakfast and drank coffee before heading out for the day, to the also spotless bathroom with luscious towels. Beautifully decorated with plenty of comfy places to sit, everything was tastefully done! Views of Uncle Tim's bridge and a short walk into the charming, artsy town of Wellfleet made this place a true gem! Nearby activities abound, from oystering in the Wellfleet bay, stand up paddle boarding, swimming in the nearby bay, ocean beaches and the beautiful clear water ponds. We are also avid bicyclists and here on the Cape biking couldn't be better. Wellfleet is where our extended family gathers every summer, and this garret gave us a chance to be with the family all day and then come home to our own little home away from home. Highly recommend!!!

Exactly as advertised

  • 4 of 5
This is quite a departure from either bland hotel rooms or some of the housekeeping cottages I have stayed at on the Cape. It is very tastefully furnished, and sits right on the waterfront. I did hear the ship's bells ring at night, and was amazed at how quickly I started thinking "three bells, must be .... 9:30." Everything was clean and well appointed, and everything worked. That's hardly surprising, as the refurbishment appears to be brand new -- appliances looked barely used, and the furniture looked barely broken in (yet was terrifically comfortable). I would have liked to know more about the house, which is clearly quite old -- I recommend the hosts put together an information packet for the curious. The host was polite and helpful, but not intrusive. I cannot speak to the heat or a/c, as the weather was so nice I needed neither one, but like everything else the wall unit looked brand new. The hot water was actually hot, and had good pressure (that sounds odd, but you do wonder about the these things in historic buildings). It was nice not to have to worry about linens or towels.

The description of the place as a garret is accurate -- it features steep stairs and a low and sloping ceiling. If you're taller than 6' or get claustrophobic this may not be the place for you. But otherwise, if you want to stay in Wellfleet, this makes a great choice.

Notes:
Garret is a Fine Arts & Visual Arts / Architecture word for a living space on the top floor of a house, typically under a pitched roof. Our garret offers a 'U' shaped, ensuite-style layout that is surprisingly spacious and separates the sleeping area from the kitchen. The Antique Oak Fainting Chaise Lounge Sofa is as pictured in the area of the bed and location of the TV. This is an fully independent living space in the upper level of our home. There are stairs. There is a private entrance at the front of the house. A Fujitsu minisplit offers excellent air conditioning, dehumidifier and heat. Our home is located in an 'In Town' Conservation Area.
