About Justina Carlson
My family has lived in Wellfleet since 1972. Drawn by its historic charm, I returned to Wellfleet to live full time, after having resided in New York City and San Francisco.
Justina Carlson purchased this house in 2002
Why Justina Carlson chose Wellfleet
Parts of this house date to the 1770s. The main living room and master bedroom were floated over from Billingsgate in the 1880s! The house presented a unique renovation challenge. Guests enjoy the lovely---and loving---restoration job done by local master craftsmen.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is absolutely a wonderful home!!! Location is the best of an "in town" location as it is off the beaten track but yet in the heart of the village center. Close to bayside, harbor, too. The home has been meticulously renovated and updated- the pictures should portray well.
The homeowner is wonderful and will TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF YOU! She truly does care that her tenants have a top - notch vacation experience in her home.
Our previous tenants have all been very satisfied with this vacation home. Our real estate company was very sorry to lose this client and her home from our inventory. But of course we respect her decision to do so and we wish her and her tenants the best!
(Owner note: The above comment is from my former real estate agent, who handled the renting of the house in prior years.)
