Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Beautiful Wellfleet Geiger-Phillips architect-designed 4 bedroom custom home (2300 sq ft) with all amenities nestled in the woods of Wellfleet - only 1 mile to the center of town and marina. 3 beaches on the bayside (flat, warmer, kid-friendly) are nearby and 3 more on the oceanside (waves, surf, national seashore) are a 5 minute drive. This home borders conservation land, national seashore and the Herring River offering a peaceful oasis with amazing sunsets and birds.
House has an open plan upstairs, beautiful large deck for relaxing and grilling, and a king-bed master suite with its own private deck. Downstairs are 3 more bedrooms and 1.5 baths. 2 car garage, privacy, and quiet on a dead-end cul-de-sac.
Wellfleet is one of the most inviting communities for vacationing on Cape Cod thanks to its many bayside and oceanside beaches (and the secret kettle-ponds for fresh-water swimming), acres of national seashore for walking, hiking and birding.
Wellfleet is also an arts and culture center on the Cape with the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, Preservation Hall, Payomet (Truro), Harbor Stage Company, tons of galleries plus tons of offerings in nearby Provincetown.
The recreational possibilities are numerous -- biking, kayaking, surfing, and fishing. Biking in the Province Lands trail is like visiting another planet with its sand dunes and hills (by Cape Cod standards). Want to charter a boat for deep-sea fishing or whale-watching? A week at the sailing club down the street? All of this and more is a few minutes away.
If you are in a shopping mood the Wellfleet flea market draws visitors from all over the Cape and at night you can go to the drive-in (or the movie theaters).
Our house has everything you need for a memorable summer vacation - location, comfort, wireless internet and cable, a fully-equipped kitchen. All renters will receive our custom guide to the neighborhood - restaurant recommendations, favorite walks, rainy-day ideas and more.

Why Jeff Behrens chose Wellfleet
We have traveled around the world, but still find that our hearts belong in New England. As a kid I used to visit my grandparents on the Cape and was finally able to buy a beautiful house with my wife in Wellfleet. We love the beaches, the walks, the culture and the community here. The house is in a super quiet area surrounded by woods up on a hill. No traffic -- just the sounds of owls at night and great star gazing.
What makes this house unique
Amazing open-floor plan custom home and deck designed to capture the light at all times of the day. Main deck faces west to enjoy summer sunsets. Each of the larger bedrooms has a private deck too so there is always a place to get away and read or birdwatch.
Wellfleet has the best beaches, restaurants, and culture on the Cape. It's a short drive to Provincetown and 15 minutes to Orleans.
Great walks from the house along the marsh in the National Seashore. Sunsets on Duck Harbor Beach are the best. In the morning bike down to PB's for fresh-baked French pastries and coffee or just take the untraveled back roads to Truro. In the afternoon stop by the wonderful Wellfleet library (5 minute bike ride from the house) or walk down to the harbor for some amazing seafood at Mac's. If it's a warm day you can take a quick dip on one of the clean, warm kettle ponds and then enjoy an outdoor shower back at the house.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for a great visit to Wellfleet. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood but still close to downtown, beaches, and lakes. Lots of light, great deck, and plenty of space. The kitchen is terrific and well-equipped for real cooking.
