Private 4 level home on Old Long Pond Road. Minutes to Long Pond & Dyer Pond.

Super sunny, airy and comfortable home with a large wrap around deck, gas grill and brand new outdoor shower. Custom woodworking throughout the house. This home is on an extremely quiet country road. Nice size side and back yard which are set back from the road, make this home a perfect and safe setting for families. Air conditioned master bedroom and air conditioned downstairs bedroom. This downstairs bedroom has its own bathroom and patio. It is both connected to the house and has its own entrance from outside which makes for a totally private retreat for guests. Extremely close to the Wellfleet Elementary School where there is a playground and baseball field. Ponds and swimming, bike trails, bird watching and hiking are just a few minutes away in the National Seashore. Excellent cable TV & WiFi, very comfortable and breezy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For many years our family has been staying for a couple of weeks every summer in this wonderful house. Wellfleet itself (just three minutes away by car) is by far the nicest and most timeless town on the Cape, with the best shopping and greatest choice of beaches and unspoiled walks; a lovely 10-minute walk through the woods takes you to one of two fresh-water swimming ponds; the layout is perfect for multi-generational families (granny bedroom and bathroom downstairs, loft room for teenagers); the kitchen is well stocked with everything needed for great meals; the bookshelves upstairs are crammed with stuff you have always wanted to read; and sitting on the deck in the evening listening to the birds and watching the sun go down is heaven. In addition, the owners are the best and nicest people you could ever hope to know! For me, my husband, our grown daughters and our grandson, no summer would be complete without our stay in this beautiful Wellfleet house.

The most wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every second in this charming, sunfilled and perfectly equipped house in Wellfleet. Marla is a thoughtful,responsive and excellent host, and the house was incredibly comfortable, welcoming and perfect for our family.

The location was second to none and permitted easy access to all parts of Wellfleet and beyond.

Highly recommend and we will be back!

Fantastic Tranquil HOuse Near Pond

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent two weeks in this most fabulous house on Old Long Pond Road.

The house was immaculate and beautifully furnished. Everything you could ask for was supplied and then some. Tons of room and a beautiful Jac tons of room and a beautiful deck. The owners were wonderful and easy to work with. Incredibly easy drive or walk to town, pond and beaches- Welfley is wonderful and it's proximity to Truro and Provincetown makes it even more appealing. We hope to return to this property again soon!

A wonderful home. A wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had an absolutely amazing week at this lovely and comfortable home in beautiful Wellfleet. In a perfect setting, the home was warm, cozy and extremely well appointed. We felt like we belonged there as soon as we walked in the door.

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the owners. They made time to explain everything about the home and offered suggestions for places to visit and dine at while we were here. I really appreciated the closeness to the everything. For a home so private, the location couldn't be beat. Beach, restaurants, galleries, Provincetown, shopping, theater...all just minutes away. Perfect!

I certainly would recommend this lovely home for anyone looking for a comfortable, relaxing escape. From the spectacular sunset on the first evening until we drove away, my friend and I felt as if we had found a small piece of heaven just for ourselves. Needless to say, we'll definitely be returning.

Heaven in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this house every year for the past 15 is heaven. The description is accurate but the photos don't do it justice. It is open plan and feels spacious and is on a very quiet road. The beds are all comfortable and the new addition adds a beautiful bath on the main floor - but don't miss the outdoor shower. Marla has always been great directing us to the beach, ponds, the goings on in the town center and restaurants. Many of my friends have also stayed there and loved it.

Great Home in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had in Wellfleet, made only better by this beautiful home. It was in a perfect location walking distance to town and ponds. The house itself was extremely comfortable for our family and had everything we needed. We loved the new addition especially the new bathroom. We will definitely rent again!
