The Kelley House, a centrally located 4 bedroom Victorian, has retained much of its 1860 charm while offering newly renovated bathrooms and a modern eat-in kitchen. Enjoy spacious air-conditioned rooms with hardwood flooring, vaulted ceilings in all 3 second floor bedrooms (the 1st floor bedroom is ideal for those who find stairs difficult). Five skylights throughout the second floor, and stained glass adds to the cozy atmosphere. If you are not gazing at the stars through the skylights, you may be enjoying our over sized farmhouse table in the sunny dining room or relaxing in our overstuffed couches in the gathering room enjoying the media center. You won't be crowded here with use of our large storage shed for bikes and beach gear, our outdoor living area and beautiful gardens. Two minute walk to beach, shopping and the market. There is parking for 4 cars on the crushed shell driveway next to our yard which is enclosed with a white picket fence. Pet friendly! High speed internet.
I loved it. My girlfriend loved it. My dog loved it. The house is spacious, clean, well maintained, and quiet. The grill was clean and had gas, the kitchen had everything we needed to make fish, pasta, scallops and more. Main street is a block away, the beach is 2 blocks away, and there's a convenience store across the street. Wifi was reliable. The yard has space and was clean - what more can I say? This place is great. We'll definitely be coming back.
We were lucky enough to stay at the Kelley House for a week, and it exceeded expectations on every level. First of all, the location is extremely convenient - all of the fun on Commercial Street couldn't be more accessible, and we took full advantage of being within 2-3 blocks of quality espresso, delicious seafood, and, of course, the beach!!! A few other nearby notables: the incredibly fresh oysters and clams at Seafood Grille sell for a buck for most of the day and the outdoor seating is tops. The waterfront view at Pepe's (barely two blocks from the house) is stunning and shouldn't be missed. The house is a quick 2-mile drive (or run) from the nearby beach at Herring Cove, which has gorgeous clear water and is perfect for hanging out with friends or family. Shout-out, also, to the ice cream at The Nut House (10-minute walk via Commercial Street), which I'd seen featured on a national ice cream list and totally lives up to the hype.
The Kelley House itself meets all the usual needs of vacationers, and then some!!! The living room is a great hangout spot, and the couch is incredibly comfortable. The kitchen met all of our needs in terms of cooking/baking supplies - very, very well-stocked. The stovetop, in particular, is very modern and easy to use/clean and there's even a grill outside. Having the choice between eating at the breakfast nook in the kitchen, the large table in the dining room, and the sizeable table in the front yard was just icing on the cake! The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the vaulted ceilings on the upper level lend the best sort of rustic/beachy feel to that floor's bedrooms. Also, the house is decorated with awesome photos shot locally - I appreciated them even more near the end of the week when I could identify specific sites around town!
One of my favorite hangout spots was the table in the front yard - perfect for a coffee in the morning or a beer in the evening (from Far Land, the upscale convenience store across the street) . The front garden is incredibly pleasant in general and the fence is super practical - perfect for the dog!
One of the highlights of the week was a whale watching excursion with Dolphin Fleet: the guide was knowledgeable, the boat was dog-friendly, and, most importantly, we spent some serious time coasting alongside a number of humpback and minke whales!
Overall, the Kelley House was the perfect place to stay for a vacation week in Provincetown and I highly, highly recommend it!!!
Fantastic little beach house located directly in the heart of Provincetown. Less than a 5 minute walk to the bay and across the street from Farlands (great food). You can go out shopping or for a night on the town without having to worry about getting home safely. The house is so quaint and beachy, it has a lot of character, and it's own bit of P-Town history! Highly recommended if you're considering a weekend getaway
Kelley House is a great little cottage. We were a group of 8 and all loved the house. The home is within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Commercial Street and is conveniently located across from a great gourmet deli and market which was perfect for picking up snacks and drinks for hanging out on the outdoor patio area on the side of the house. The location of the home is a little noisy on the east side, (I prefer the west side and if you’re looking for more quiet times, I would head there) with the home being located on a semi-busy street, we stayed in mid June before the busy season, but I would imagine the street noise reaches its height in July and August. The home was clean when we arrived, the roof pitch is awkward on the second floor in all the rooms and I hit my head several times on the roof, this did not bother me, it just added to the charm of the home, but some may find it bothersome. I thought I would cook, but when I saw the kitchen decided against it, it's smallish and it was in the back of the house away from the main rooms. The kitchen was perfect for easy breakfast and lunch fixes, but I was not going to be making any gourmet meals. The beds were outstanding, very comfortable and the bedding was great. The house had lots of towels and even some beach towels which was a pleasant surprise! One little annoyance was the location of the rental office (where you pick up the keys) which is located all the way in the west end and the house is in the east end. They ask you to return keys to the office when you leave, so when we left we had to drag our entire luggage to the west end office before catching our ferry. It would have been nice to just lock the keys in the house when you leave. Also if you’re driving or picking up keys during heavy traffic times, I would park the car at the house then walk to the office because their is no parking at the rental agency on Commercial Street. Most homes I have rented from offer a hide a key with a code to access keys at the house. Finally the house was a great value for what it offered and the rental agency was very pleasant to deal with.
We enjoyed the Kelly house immensely and were only a block away from shopping and great restaurants. The location is perfect, and the home is clean and tastefully appointed.
