About Danielle Rosales

I live in Quincy, Massachusetts, and work in Boston.

Danielle Rosales purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Danielle Rosales chose Wellfleet

I purchased this property with my now ex husband in 1992 and it became mine in the divorce. At the time it was one cottage community where we used to stay, that was renovated and sold as individual cottages. It is like a home away from home for me although I usually go down in spring and fall and save one summer week for myself. I like the quiet and old fashioned feel of the cottage and the view of the cove.


Nearest Beach

Car: necessary

It is a short drive to beaches, restaurants, and Wellfleet center where there is a lovely marina where boats may be rented. Wellfleet also has a theater, shopping, art galleries, a golf course, and is near Provincetown. A good portion of Wellfleet is National Park.

I stayed here with my dog and loved the quiet and cozy feel of the cabin. It was a great place to relax and unwind. We would definitely stay there again.

So much fun!

  • 4 of 5

The atmosphere was rustic, and yes, the other cottages looked cooler. But it was clean, the owner was accommodating, and I was quite comfortable. Had so much fun!

Adorable cottage for a romantic getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in the saltbox cottage! It was perfect for two and we so appreciated that we could bring our dog. The house itself is no frills but you'll have everything you need including a lovely deck. It's close to beaches, town and necessities. We especially loved the proximity to the Cape Cod Rail Trailhead and the lovely winding Conservation Area walking path we discovered right behind the neighbor's house. We will definitely return next summer!

Mommy and dog

  • 4 of 5

We spend a beautiful week in Wellfleet, the cottage is charming with its pine floors and exposed beams. For some it might be too rustic but for us it was perfect; the bed was comfortable and the location ideal. Our goal was to try all the National seashore beaches and we did since the weather was great, we even were able to go twice to our favorites; Head of the Meadow and Marconi. The deck was very nice for my dog to dry out after his hose down shower, while I was enjoying the view with a beverage. The kitchen had pretty much everything I needed and there was plenty of storage space for clothing in the bedroom. The grill also came in handy, as we mostly stayed in for dinner after a full beach day. The cute breakfast room porch combo was perfect for my morning coffee and reading.

On the negative side the deck need a few boards replaced and another small ac unit in the bedroom would make this place even better.

Owner's Response: Dear Martine, thank you so much for the nice review and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay! I am planning on getting those boards fixed before the next season and I will look into another A/C - there is usually a nice wind off the water in the bedroom but this has been a very hot summer!
