Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description
House with central AC, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, Outside Shower
Location is everything for a great vacation. Stay at this cool (central A/C) and comfortable home *within* the National Seashore in Wellfleet. Located on a private road off Ocean View drive which runs along the Atlantic Ocean. Our road leads to a private path (for residents and guests) to LeCount Hollow Beach. Additionally, Cahoon Hollow Beach and Beachcomber is about a mile down Ocean View Drive (walkable, drive, bike or take the free shuttle).
As our previous guest reviews suggest, our beach house is in a wonderful location. Lecount Hollow (also referred to as McGuires Landing) and the other National Seashore ocean beaches (Lecounts, White Crest, Cahoon Hollow and Newcomb Hollow) are the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod and are all located off Oceanview Drive. Other location attractions include a nearby 27 mile bike trail, close access to the other ocean beaches, several fresh water kettle ponds and bayside beaches. We are also about a 5-10 minute drive to the town center and harbor. This great area has always attracted families and friends escaping the rigors of real life. Go home refreshed.
The house itself is one of only ~300 within the National Seashore Park. It has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 7. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor (queen and full) and 1 on the second level (2 twins). We also have a rollout for an overnight guest. There are 2 full bathrooms (note we are adding the second bath upstairs for 2015) as well as an enclosed outside shower.
There is spacious living room and eat in kitchen.
The shady, natural patio/yard is a unique feature of the house. It offers a quiet place to relax and have a cocktail or eat outside with family and friends. In the afternoon it is a shady oasis after a hot day at the beach.
At night, walk or drive to the Beachcomber (thebeachcomber.com) Restaurant/Night Club which features nightly live bands and soloists from all musical genres (~1 mile down Ocean View Drive) or have a cocktail in their beachside bar 'apres beach'.
You never need to leave the area but, for the adventurous, there are many great restaurants, art galleries, golf, mini-golf, drive-in theatre, live theatre and other attractions in Wellfleet and the surrounding towns (P-Town, Truro or Orleans). Provincetown offers a vibrant downtown area which is a *must* visit about 20 minutes away. There is also a variety of night options in Provincetown.
Jog or bike along Ocean View Drive. Fish, swim or relax on the beach or on your patio steps from the Atlantic. Overall, get ready for an amazing, fun and exciting summer getaway with friends, family and the people of LeCount Hollow Beach and Wellfleet! You will not be disappointed.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I had no idea we'd be so close to the beach and have our own path to it. Love the location. And love running on the road to Calhoun Hollow and back.
Note from owner: path is at end of Wilson ave - private to residents.
Twenty year summer resident and homeowner in Wellfleet. This home is our first of three in the area. It is a very unique location and we love it more every year.
We vacationed for many years on the outer cape. We bought this home because of its unique location.
This home offers so much it is difficult to describe in short. The beach is the most scenic beach on the cape. The area contains something for everyone who loves the outdoors. This area brings a lot of families and young professionals seeking some relaxation and fun away from the stress of real life.
