This was our second stay at First Light Cottage. We have 3 very young children and loved the close proximity to the idyllic beach and the convenience of the eat-in kitchen. The cottage itself is clean and inviting. The beach was beautiful and perfect for young children – clean yellow sand, no real waves or undertow, plenty of shells, and an estuary connecting to the ocean with fiddler crabs, hermit crabs, periwinkles, tiny shrimp and lots of little fish.
When we weren’t on the beach, we enjoyed exploring the local farmers’ markets, ice cream parlors (our favorite was the Local Scoop in Orleans), and watching the seals (albeit from afar) in Chatham.
The owners were very responsive and very thoughtful. There were toys for inside and for the beach, a washer and dryer we could use, a high chair we could borrow and a picnic table outside with sun umbrella.
We really enjoyed our stay in Wellfleet and hope to be back again soon.
