Overview

About the property

3+ bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Situated in a wooded setting, on a small private road, the house features a sunny wrap-around deck, upper and lower living levels and an outdoor shower. The upper living area promotes an 'open' feel, as the kitchen, dining room and living room are undivided. The upper living area also has 2 bedrooms. The lower level has a large plushly carpeted open room (with pull-out), plus 1 bedroom. Each level has a full bath. It's perfect for 2 families (1 family on each level).

On the ocean side, the house is a nice walk to the idyllic Duck Pond, and a short drive to ocean beaches and other ponds. Cape Cod bike trail is nearby. Breakfast on the porch is delightful! We have a new 40 In. flat screen, high speed wireless Internet and expanded cable. If you must work, at least you can do it in a beautiful setting.. We also have a 2nd TV with a DVD player ... for the kids downstairs.

Beds: Upstairs: 1 queen, 2 twins (new); Downstairs: 1 queen, 1 pull-out (new).

Golf Details: There is a country club in Wellfleet that is open to the public called Chequessett Yacht & Country Club Golf. It is a lovely course across from Wellfleet Bay. There is also top notch golf at Ocean's Edge in Brewster (about a 35 minute drive) and a public course in Truro (about a 10 minute drive) called The Highland Links. That course is atop the bluffs with a lighthouse and is like playing at St. Andrew's.

Tennis: You can play tennis at the hard court public courts at the playground across from Wellfleet Harbor. Alternatively, there are the clay courts at Oliver's along Rte. 6 in Wellfleet and the tennis courts at Chequessett Yacht & Country Club.

High Speed Broadband/Expanded TV Cable Service: We have high speed broadband Internet with wireless capability. This means that you can plug your computer into the broadband connection inside the house or use your wireless computer and sit anywhere you like, inside or outside. We are very excited about this new upgrade! Expanded TV cable service also provides favorite premium cable stations such as HBO and (for Red Sox fans) NESN! By the way, we also have 2 DVD players if you want to rent movies... One upstairs and one downstairs so kids and adults can each watch their own shows.

About Susan Roberts

I practice law in the Boston area, serving small business clients as their real estate and general counsel. In addition to serving on several nonprofit education and library boards, I'm active in my town's governance and serve on town committees involving real estate development. I love music and am a huge Boston sports fan. Between work, spending time with my kids, and going out with friends, I'm pretty busy, and love being so.

Susan Roberts purchased this house in 1986

Why Susan Roberts chose Wellfleet

We've owned this property since it was built in 1986. It still seems new! The kids have grown up spending parts of every summer here, along with assorted spring and fall weekends... We love Wellfleet with its diverse natural beauty and culture. It is a special place.

Wellfleet Living

  • 5 of 5

This house is tucked nicely off a main road to the beach. Lovely breezes and visits by hummingbirds near the deck. The location is great—ponds and ocean so nearby and a skip into Wellfleet to buy fresh fish. The house is very comfortable. I’ve returned a couple of times with great delight. Clean, spacious, with a well equipped kitchen for cooking gourmet meals and grilling out, I highly recommend it.

Not what I expected

  • 2 of 5

I hesitated to give a negative review because the owner was nice and very easy to work with and prompt with all answers to questions. But I rely on honest reviews when choosing a rental. This was a last minute vacation and I had limited choices. However, I have rented several times in the last 15 years and this was not up to par with any of them. We even were tempted to leave and stay at a hotel. The place is very outdated, original appliances, flooring... the sheets and towels are very old with holes in them. The bathroom has holes that were fixed with putty over them but never repainted. The tub is very stained. The screen on sliding glass doors has holes in it so we could not leave open for fresh air. It does not appear anything has been changed or updated since the place was built 30 years ago. The bedrooms were very basic and outdated, not comfortable bedding. The downstairs had so many spiders we did not even use it. The lighting throughout the house is horrible, we tried to play board games and could barely see, impossible to read a book in any of the rooms. Very old outdated lamps in every room. There were many quirks that were sent in a letter after we paid for the rental. Such as the dishwasher when used had to be rigged. We also had to make our own beds up when arriving and after a 10 hour drive, who wants to do that??? We had to supply our own toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, trash bags... We also had to do all laundry including bedding before we left, which meant waking up early to strip beds then waiting for 2 hours before they were washed and dried before we could head out to go home! I have never had to do these things with any other rental. When renting a vacation home I want it to be nicer than what I live in or at least comparable. ( I do not live in a mansion, just a basic home in the country) It was a chore to be on vacation in this home. On the plus side, it is located in a central area, close to all things on Cape Cod.

Friends Weekend on the Cape

  • 4 of 5

Susan was wonderful to work with and very flexible in accomodating the dates we wanted. The house was clean and prepared when we arrived and all of the instructions were spot on. The open kitchen and living area was perfect for us since there was a lot of eating and "lounging" rather than rushing to the beach. The outside deck runs the length of the house plus, and is another great spot for relaxing. The kitchen was well appointed with pans, tools and gadgets and we did a fair amount of cooking. The house was also super close to Wellfleet town beaches on the ocean (i.e. Lecount and Cahoon Hollow) as well as town center.

Great location near beaches and for cycling

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for the July 4th weekend for the beaches, the short drive to the Wellfleet July 4th parade, Ptown fireworks, and the famous Wellfleet oysters and ample access to fried seafood. The house was much larger than expected, nestled on a private road. The location is great for an easy drive to the significantly less crowded Le Count Wellfleet beach. Cycling in the area was a breeze for triathlon training with some nice hilly sections with a beautiful view of the Atlantic ocean; this would easily second as a scenic drive. The General store was just down the street for basic supplies. Overall I would recommend and will keep this in my back pocket for a return visit.

A great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, well-equipped house. Easy for a family with a separate downstairs sleeping and playing area for children. We've stayed here twice and have been very happy with the location as well as the web description of the layout and amenities. And of course, the perfect weather was helpful too!

Head to the beaches and ponds to swim, sunbathe, boogie-board and surf, kayak and paddle boat. Bike ride and walk through the National Seashore woods and dunes. Visit galleries, excellent restaurants, ice cream parlors, and fish and chips shacks. Go birding at the Wellfleet Bay Audubon sanctuary, do a wine tasting at Truro Vineyards. Play golf at the Highlands Links on the cliffs and dunes above the ocean. Go whale watching or fishing from nearby Provincetown, see first-run movies at the Wellfleet Drive-In and Cinemas. Root for the Orleans Firebirds at a baseball game in the Cape Cod League. And, of course, bring your boat to the harbor!
