Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

This lovely, bright Greek Revival home, nestled into Chipman Cove dunes, combines yesteryear's simplicity with all of today's comforts. Large, private yard - steps from the water.

Summer fun or off-season solitude. Kayak or swim the bay, or walk the beach to the charming town center of Wellfleet with its many art galleries, shops and restaurants. Or, stay and enjoy the sunsets from Adirondack Chairs in the front yard while the kids play with fiddler crabs in the tidepools close-by.

The ultimate Cape Cod experience for families, friends, and lovers. Picture-postcard water views from every room. Includes a well equipped kitchen, patio with barbecue, outdoor table and chairs, Adirondacks, and lounge chairs and your own professional quality volleyball/badminton setup.

The house sleeps a total of seven persons in three bedrooms. Bed room A: One queen; Bedroom B: one queen, one single; Bedroom C: two single beds. You can access Bedroom C either through B or via an outside set of stairs. You can see the water and sky from your bed pillow.

Very crisp and clean, and nicely furnished for a relaxed and perfect vacation for you and your family. Outside hot/cold shower for after-beach rinse-off, or anytime. You can't beat it!

It is more in the area of Indian Neck than Pleasant Point! You can walk the coastline either to Indian Neck in one direction or to Wellfleet Center via Uncle Tim's Bridge in the other direction.

About Nick

I grew up in Maplewood, NJ and moved to Wellfleet full time when I was 20. I have lived here full time for 45 years so I must be 65- Oy! I work in the home care business, caring for over 20 homes and contracting construction and maintenance work.I am also a Real Estate Broker and would be happy to help you find your dream home.

My off-time passions are racketball and more recently fishing. I love my beautiful wife Elisa and my life on the Cape!

Nick purchased this house in 1930

Why Nick chose Cape Cod

The home was first purchased by my grandmother in 1930 from Capt.Lorenzo Dow Baker the founder of United Fruit AKA the Banana King. It was passed to my parents and then to me. I hope to keep it in the family for many more years. We believe it was first built in the late 1700's as a supply store for the fishermen who used the pier that used to be at the end of the road. It was later converted into a Greek Revival Style home @1840. Before the white men took over the area was inhabited by the Wampanoag Tribe. The adjacent dune area has yielded numerous primitive artifacts.

What makes this house unique

I am mostly there to work on the place, which I love doing, and it is the perfect parking place when the flats are opened for oystering. Slurp! I live with my wife in the highlands of Cove View Rd. about a quarter mile away.

wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

A house with an incredible character. So much love in every detail. You feel at home immediately. The view on the wellfleet bay is exceptional. Calm and relaxing spot. The interior is pure Cape Cod Style, naturally welcoming. A bit of nostalgia in a good way. Everything is functional for vacation. The kitchen is well-supplied, beds are comfortable and the outdoor-shower is "delicious". We felt in love with this wonderful place and had a great time at the white house.

Charming -- but small.

  • 3 of 5

Great view of the harbor, wonderful outdoor space complete with hammock, and Nick is a very responsive landlord. Main problem: the one bathroom is downstairs, so a bit of a hassle to negotiate a steep staircase if one has to go at night. It's an old house -- charming -- but windows are small, and one bedroom is only accessible by walking through another bedroom, or else from outside. The walk to town along the beach can be mucky and difficult, depending on the tides; it's not really a beach, more of a narrow path strewn with large dead horseshoe crabs for much of the way; also some high grass.

Owner's Response: I am grateful that I was given credit for being responsive. This guest was certainly high maintenance. They claimed not to have noticed in the contract that check out was supposed to be at 10AM. The cleaning crew had to work around their things until they were finally out two hours later. Much of what this guest says is true and we try to make it all clear in our listing. It is an antique home and short of tearing it down and starting over we have done our best to supply all the modern amenities like broadband internet, enhanced cable tv, and yes, even indoor plumbing. When the home was built none of this was even heard of. We don't recommend that large parties rent from us and I don't know how many were in this family but there were certainly three generations present. We also don't recommend that the elderly undertake the walk to Town as it is a bit of an adventure and we try to warn elderly guests that the bathroom is not on the same floor as the bedrooms. Our feeling is that for the money, you can't beat the charm, privacy and location!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for all weather. You need this on the Cape. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is modern and well-supplied. The setting is ideal. The beach down the street is charming.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week at the White House - everything about the location, house and amenities were more than we could have anticipated. We were more than comfortable and had everything we needed to make this spot our home away from home for a week. The location is convenient to all things Wellfleet, but also quiet and secluded with sunsets to end the day! The owner made sure we were comfortable and was very easy to work with from reservation to end of the visit. We expect to go back next year!

The way Cape Cod should be.

  • 5 of 5

First off the location is perfect, your are the last house on a private road, and literally a 30 second walk to the beach/cove. There are lots of great places to eat within 5-10 mins and P-town is maybe 25 mins away. The house has wonderful charm, is very well appointed for summer and winter and you even have cable and Internet, for those of us who cannot ever really "turn off". If you are thinking about staying anywhere near Wellfleet, this is the place to do it!
