Cape Cod House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6.

The interior is impeccably maintained with brand new furniture throughout. There are French doors to a breezy, sunny deck right off the modern, complete kitchen. The deck has a large umbrella table that seats six-eight for comfortable outdoor dining. Off the kitchen there is also a beautiful screened porch with cozy rattan furniture.

On the first floor, besides the eat-in kitchen, is an airy, well-lit living room, two bedrooms (each accommodating 2 people), and a full bath with tub and shower. The master bedroom on the second floor has its own French doors to a private deck and a full bath. There is a carpeted, open, child-friendly area on the second floor for reading, games, watching movies, etc. The basement has a ping pong table, washer and dryer, beach chairs, beach umbrella, raft and boogie boards for your use while at the house. Large well-placed windows offer wonderful west light and ceiling fans for maximum ventilation. An enclosed outdoor shower adds to the beach experience.

June 20th - June 27th price reduction: Besides walking to the beach and ponds, our house is a five minute bike ride to Wellfleet town center - extremely easy access for a quick errand or breakfast out with the family. Wellfleet is known as the art gallery town. There are artist openings every Saturday evening with lovely parties that are open and free to visitors. There are also concerts all summer long at various locales throughout town, as well as, the Wellfleet Actors Theater, and the authentic 1950's-style drive-in movie, which doubles as a terrific flea market during the day.

The public bike trail is close by and available for walking, biking and roller blading, it stretches for 26 miles. Great Island (5 minute drive from the house) and the Autobahn Society (10 minute drive0 also provide exquisite scenic hiking and birding, as well as guided canoe trips and beautiful kayaking through miles of tidal marsh.

Cultural and outdoor activities abound not only in Wellfleet, but in Truro (5 minutes from the house ) and in Provincetown (20 minutes away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I absolutely love this spacious, modern, and airy home and have visited it several times. Privately situated at the edge of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the house is an easy and pleasant walk through the woods to the private swimming at Higgins Pond and to family-oriented Gull Pond. The house has three beautiful decks. The front deck is wide and open and has a comfortable porch swing. My family’s favorite feature of the house is the large, enclosed outdoor shower located off this deck. After a long day at the beach or pond, we all race to see who gets to use it first. The second deck is at the rear of the house, off the dining room. Overlooking the woods, it has a gas grill and a lovely glass table with cushioned chairs. The house is cool, open, and immaculately clean. It has been impeccably furnished in a modern, minimalist Cape beach style. There are two cozy bedrooms downstairs, each of which easily sleeps two, and a full bath. The bright and breezy master bedroom is upstairs, along with another full bath and a large and comfortable sitting area with a tv and dvd player. The third, private deck is attached to the master bedroom. The owners, Richard and Elizabeth, are very friendly and accessible, and have been terrific to deal with. When we had a minor issue arise one year with one of the beds, Richard arranged to have it repaired immediately. We have especially loved the privacy and the simplicity of the house. Each time we have visited, we have left feeling renewed and refreshed.

What a lovely, lovely place! I hope to come back for many summers with my family. The house is outfitted quite nicely and located in a quiet, pristine location. I am grateful for a summer filled with such great memories.

Great place to be with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from a wonderful Wellfleet vacation with best friends from NYC, Buffalo and Boston. This rental has great outdoor and indoor spaces to be together and also to catch a little time alone. It works perfectly for 6 people. The 2 outdoor decks ( one with a grill) and a screened-in porch were perfect as were the 2 indoor living rooms. The house is very clean, comfortable and airy. Lot's of options for hanging, playing games, eating together, reading, relaxing and just having a good time.

We loved our many walks to the ocean and kettle ponds. The swimming was exquisite and we loved our outdoor showers upon return. We hardly needed our cars! The rental process was efficient and communication prompt. We look forward to going back next year.

Dreamy Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well organized and well taken care of home at the edge of the neighborhood so you can walk out to a wooded path and down to the pond without seeing anyone else but also are a quick ride into Wellfleet for a visit to Hatches or Macs. We loved that you can also walk further and get to the beach - many days we never got in the car. And great outside shower.

What a lovely home! Very comfortable and furnished nicely. The setting in the woods is beautiful. We were there with our children and their spouses and all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Elizabeth was very helpful with the rental details. A great place to stay on the Cape!

Serene retreat in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

I hate to sound like a broken record (I have dated myself already) in echoing the same sentiments as so many others but the Rubin home is the perfect Wellfleet rental. Elizabeth was very responsive to e-mails during the rental process. We did not need to contact her while there because everything was better than advertised and in great shape.

We have vacationed in Wellfleet for the last 25 years and this was without a doubt the all around best home that we have stayed in. We were there with our two young adult sons. Everyone had their own comfortable reading/daydreaming/sleeping space. The communal spaces were spacious, well furnished and conducive to great family conversations and dinners. I had been excited to see the screened in porch on the website but didn't expect such a large, comfortable and serene space with a great ceiling fan. The master bedroom was large and airy and so peaceful in the morning with the birds chirping that it was tough to get out of bed.

The weather was fantastic but this is a house that you would be happy to be in even in less than perfect weather.

I loved the location on the Truro end of town with easy access to route 6 and Provincetown (much better going to grocery store there than to drive on Rt 6 to Orleans). If you are a cyclist, it's a quick drive to the Cape Cod Rail Trail in South Wellfleet or just a ride across Route 6 to the back roads of Truro if you like hills. The house is on the edge of the National Seashore and we spent countless hours hiking the trails, swimming or jogging.

We will definitely go back next year.

Wonderful Wellfleet home

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a wonderful week in Wellfleet. The house is well furnished, very comfortable, and filled with nice artwork. It is situated in the woods, a short walk to a great swimming pond and about 2 miles from a National Seashore beach. The house has plenty of gathering spaces indoors and out, plus a lovely screened porch. We grilled fresh fish bought from the local fish market most nights. The ping pong table in the basement was an added bonus!

Note: Most of the Wellfleet ponds and beaches require a resident parking sticker that cost $85 per week for renters.

Car: necessary

This is a charming contemporary Cape on a private wooded lot abutting the National Seashore. From the front door you can take a short stroll on a quiet path through the woods to Gull Pond and the pristine sluice way that connects Gull and Higgins ponds. The ocean beach is either a five minute drive or a 20 minute peaceful walk through the National Seashore woods.
