About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

This cottage is right on the water and a private beach! It is one of 20 free standing condo cottages at the Wellfleeter and has a spectacular waterfront view of Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay from the master bedroom, the kitchen and the living room. Wow- it still surprises me how amazing that is when I go over there. It is cottage #9. There are private stairs that lead you down to the sandy bay beach for swimming, boating, fishing, shell fishing, or just plain relaxing! The sunsets will take your breath away. The beach is just 20 ft from this condo. Right down the street from the playground, skateboard park, tennis and basketball courts. The town pier, many restaurants, art galleries and shopping in downtown Wellfleet are within a short distance. I often walk it. The cottage has wireless internet. We have a washer and dryer in the basement which is accessed from the outside of the cottage through a bulkhead.

We have three bedrooms; one with a queen bed, one with a full size bed and one with two twin beds. Each bedroom has a closet and dresser. We provide mattress pads, pillows and blankets. You are responsible for bringing your sheets and bath towels. The kitchen has a table to eat in and also a slider out to the patio where we have our grill and water front picnic table. We have tried to stock the kitchen with anything you might need pot and pan wise. We have dishes, glasses and flatware. We have spices and some of the basic items you will want/need; a roll of paper towels, aluminum foil and saran wrap. If you expect to use more paper goods please bring them and leave the cottage as you found it with a roll of towels for the next guests.

We have a basement with plenty of beach chairs, some beach towels and beach toys. Feel free to use all of it. There is a washer and dryer so you can leave the towels clean for the next guests.

About Kathleen Nagle

I was born in the Bronx, NY, grew up in Westchester County and moved to Wellfleet in 2000. I love Wellfleet and the Outer Cape and feel very fortunate to call it my home! I work as a Realtor for Kinlin Grover Real Estate helping both Buyers and Sellers purchase and sell their homes. I have owned a cottage at the Wellfleeter since 2003 and still pinch myself when I come over here. It is such a special place!

I do not advertise this cottage on Craigslist and if you find it there someone is scamming you. I do not take Western Union payments.

Kathleen Nagle purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Kathleen Nagle chose Wellfleet

This cottage is in such an amazing location, near down town and right on the water with such amazing and peaceful water views, both my mom and I talk about spending our entire summers there at some point. Until I can afford to do that I will be renting it out though and would love to have you come and enjoy my little slice of heaven!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location- I still pinch myself when I am over at the cottage that I am fortunate enough to own it! The location is fabulous. Sometimes when I am in the cottage looking out at the water I feel like I am on a cruise ship.

Please note- Homeaway requires owners to select a box on things like refund policy. My policy is stated in the lease so please read that.

The cleanliness of the cottage is extremely important to us. We work to make sure you arrive to a sparkling clean cottage. It is equally important that you leave the cottage in good order at the end of your stay. We have a checklist to help with that. A cleaning service will be provided at the end of your stay and the charge for that is $175. Our check out time is before 10:00 am. Experience has taught me that although the cottage is small, in order to make sure it is left clean enough, you should start the night before. **If you would like to rent sheets, bath and beach towels please contact The Furies to make those arrangements. They are right here in Wellfleet (508) 349-1145.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This little cosy cottage is sparkling clean, bright and airy, with a beautifully-equipped kitchen that has every amenity you could ask for, comfortable beds, and many thoughtful extras such as umbrellas, rain ponchos, and fans. It is tastefully decorated, with nice colors and good-quality furniture - definitely NOT your average dreary, musty, cheaply-supplied vacation cabin! Steps away from the water, which is lovely to swim in, and close to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to come back next year.

Perfect location on Mayo Beach in Wellfleet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including two boys age 6 and 8) had a wonderful vacation in Wellfleet! The cottage was right on the water and was clean and well maintained. The listing and pictures were very accurate! Kathleen was great to work with. We loved that we were so close to the pier, restaurants, and shops. It was a 1/2 mile walk to the pier, which was easy enough for all of us to walk or bike. We would absolutely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Pristine Charming Waterfront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Wellfleet thanks in large part to Kathleen's immaculate and very comfortable cottage. It lacked no convenience and the location (practically on the seawall!!) was perhaps the best we have ever experienced. Warm bay water, refreshing sea breezes, quiet neighbors......the list goes on!

We would definitely return.

Cottage lived up to and beyond my expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and my stay were excellent. I usually stay ocean front on the National Seashore side of Wellfleet, but decided to try the Harbor this year. It was great being so close to Wellfleet Center, the pier and all the restaurants. Not to mention a private beach is right outside your door and the waterfront views are awesome! The cottage was very clean and neat and I can tell it's well cared for. Kathleen is very nice and very accommodating. I would definitely stay again and I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in this cottage. Upon arrival the cottage was spotless and looked exactly like the booking photos. The ocean views from every room were great, the furniture was comfortable, the bathroom updated and the kitchen was equipped with anything that may be needed. The private beach was perfect for our two toddlers - it was a minute from the front door, shallow, calm, relatively warm and filled with sea shells. Although close to the center of town, at night the complex is quiet. The unit got a great ocean breeze and we slept to the sound of the waves.

A Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We could go on and on about how clean this cottage was, how nicely decorated, the ideal location right on the beach with beautiful water views from almost every window, the welcoming owner, and how each night we were lulled to sleep by the sound of gentle waves. Also, the wonderful local restaurants, golfing, the pier, and Wellfleet Center with its many quaint shops (don't miss the ice cream shop), all just a few minutes away. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation and would definitely stay there again.

This premier location is right on the Bay and is walking distance from fine and casual dining, the Town Pier, the new Stage Harbor Actor's Theater, and Wellfleet's Town Center, featuring art galleries, shops and more eateries! Also in walking distance are hiking trails, town playground, skateboard park & public tennis courts. Additional tennis and golf facilities are available at nearby Chequessett Country Club. It's a short drive to the ocean beaches, fresh water ponds, The Audubon, flea market, drive-in theater, bike trail and more! Provincetown is 20 miles down the road for great whale watching, shopping and more galleries and restaurants.

If you haven't been to the Outer Cape and Wellfleet in particular, you are in for a treat! Over 60% of the town is protected as National Seashore, so there is lots of undeveloped land for hiking, biking and bird watching. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. In places Wellfleet is only 3 miles wide with Bay beach on one side and Ocean on the other. When the tide is low you can walk way out on the bay side flats collecting shells or actually go clamming. Sit at Mayo Beach at a picnic table or for that matter, at this cottage and watch the oystermen tending to their oyster grants. The ocean side is great for boogie boarding or even surfing at times. In the summer, the days are usually warm and the nights cool. Enjoy the beautiful stars or get a permit and have a beach bonfire! If you are lucky enough to be here for a full moon you can watch the full moon rising while sitting on the ocean beach listening to the waves crash.

There are private steps from our association right near our cottage accessing our private bay beach. I have a small paved area outside the cottage for using our gas grill and a picnic table. There is a hose on the side of the cottage. There are also benches overlooking the bay to the left of the cottage.

Other Activities: art galleries, shopping, dining, theater, playground

Golf: Chequessett Yacht Club, Wellfleet Captains Course, Brewster

Ski: sit on the beach and plan your winter vacation!
