About Mary Ellen O'Sullivan Delaney

I'm a 4th generation Summer Wellfleetian who traveled the world and discovered that there is no place like home. I love the ocean and the ponds and will always hold time spent in Wellfleet close to my heart.

Mary Ellen O'Sullivan Delaney purchased this house in 2011

Why Mary Ellen O'Sullivan Delaney chose Wellfleet

This Sea Captain's Home has been our family gathering place since my grandparents purchased it pre World War II. My grandparents lived here in the 1960's and legend has it that the great seafaring Captain Jack lived here and many tall fish tales were spun and created in the reading room and library.

The house operated as a Bed and Breakfast Inn from 1998 to 2011. I purchased the house in 2011 and have been bringing the glory back ever since. I love the light, the cross breezes and the sheer joy of doing good work and creating happiness. I hope that you will be able to feel our Wellfleet magic during your stay with us.

What makes this house unique

The Cape Cod Summer House in Wellfleet has space and privacy to accommodate multiple generations joining together for a wonderful vacation. Charming inside and out, a traditional Cape style home, ideally situated and close to restaurants, galleries, ponds and beaches. The interior is spacious and open and can accommodate a large family or friends gathering together to renew and strengthen the bonds of friendship.

Excellent experience

Great property with an unbeatable location and plenty of space. Owner is responsive and accommodating. House is just minutes from Cahoon Hallow beach and the famous beachcomber bar/restaurant. Can't ask for a better spot for a large group or family in Wellfleet.

An absolute gem in Wellfleet!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a fantastic two-week trip to Wellfleet. We loved everything about the Cape Cod summer house, from the comfortable and inviting furniture to the close proximity to Great Pond, beaches, and Wellfleet town center. The house is spacious, beautiful and charming, full of historic touches yet also modern amenities, like renovated bathrooms and new kitchen appliances. We loved the big yard and the outdoor furniture, especially the thick cushions on the couch and chairs, and the inviting hammock. The owner goes out of her way to enhance your trip, providing great advice regarding restaurants and points of interest. She also provided us with fantastic new beach chairs with attached coolers, which we used almost every day of the trip. This was a family reunion and my daughters kept thanking me for finding this wonderful house.

Outer Cape Retreat in Wellfleet

  • 4 of 5
This was a generally well-equipped property in a good location. It is necessary to drive to the ponds and ocean beaches. Some are more accessible for large families/small kids than others, so drive by everything before you choose your favorite beach venue. Parking is easy once you have Wellfleet parking stickers. Be sure to avail yourself of all parking regs and fees.

The house itself is comfortable for a large family with a range of ages (2-72). There is plenty of outside play space, a great grill and good parking. It is clean and well stocked with eating utensils, cooking utensils and dishes. Our owner provided an extensive, accurate list of restaurants and local activities. We didn't come close to doing everything we would have liked.

As everyone says, the outdoor shower is terrific as are all the major appliances and there is plenty of hot water.

I would recommend this to any family group……this is a user friendly property, clean and unpretentious.

Book it!

Was browsing VRBO when I saw this house that we booked last year for a warm week in September. Nothing but positive things to say about this place! My favorite part? The brand new OUTDOOR shower! Nothing like getting back from a long day at the beach with a refreshing shower as the sun peeks through the backyard trees. Rustic and charming! The perfect home base for enjoying Wellfleet's Oceanside AND Harbor side. Loved spending nights reading in the big, comfy furniture in the great room, and sharing meals in the wood paneled dining room. It was just the relaxation we needed after a busy summer and before an even busier winter. Came all the way from the Netherlands! and As soon as we can come back, we will!

Cedardown in perfection

  • 5 of 5
We arrived very late at night, exhausted with two young children and ready to collapse. We found that everything was ready for this! The beds are fantastic, brand new and super comfy. The rooms are light and airy and belie the fact that the house is over 150 years old (read: there's no "musty" smell about the house!). All the furniture is in excellent condition, the grounds were well maintained. Beaches and ponds are very close, as advertised. I have recommended this to all of my friends in the Boston area and as far away as Ohio. Thanks!

Marvelous Cape Cod Experience

  • 5 of 5
Even if it didn't feature the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, this place would rate five stars! My wife and I visited last October -- well after the tourist season, and thus less crowded -- together with a cousin and her husband. The rooms are well-lit, the kitchen equipped for all the cooking we wanted to do, and bookshelves stocked with interesting titles to satisfy whomever wakes up before the others.

The king bed in the upstairs end-of-the-corridor room was firm and truly regal.

Each morning we would walk into town -- Wellfleet cannot be topped for walking -- via Uncle Tim's Bridge, spanning a salt flat redolent with sea life. Try lunch at The Lighthouse on Main Street, or amble over to the town beach at a family restaurant / oyster house call the Bookstore. For more elegant dining, Winslow's Tavern (or was it Wilson's?) serves tasty entrees and summer-fresh veggies, in a room with good acoustics.

It's a pretty sure thing that we'll be back every summer for a long time.
