Best house we ever rented on the Cape
Where to begin with the many accolades for Sea Zen?! The house itself is immaculate, sun filled, and very well laid out.The kitchen is equipped to fulfill any and all cooking whims. Linens and towels are provided...a real plus! The house itself allows for privacy when desired yet also encourages camaraderie.
It is a quiet neighborhood yet with easy access to route 6. The grounds are stunning...especially when the hydrangeas are in bloom. The spellbinding views from the many decks can make it difficult to get motivated to leave and enjoy the nearby beaches.
In the unlikely event that any issues come up, Carol is readily available to resolve.
We have been return visitors for 6 consecutive years and highly recommend this property!
Thank you! You have been delightful guests!
You will love this house!
THE HOUSE HAS FOUR VERY COMFORTABLE BEDROOMS AND 3.5 BATHS, MEANING SPACE AND PRIVACY IS NEVER AN ISSUE.
THE OVERALL DESIGN ALLOWS FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE TO BE DOING DIFFERENT THINGS – COOKING, STUDYING, READING, SLEEPING, ETC. – WITHOUT INTERFERING WITH ONE ANOTHER. YET THE LOVELY COMMON SPACE MAKES GROUP GATHERINGS EASY.
THE MANY WINDOWS AND WATER-FACING GREAT ROOM MADE IT TRULY FEEL LIKE OUTSIDE CAME INSIDE. THE ACTUAL OUTSIDE SPACES ARE PLENTIFUL AND FULL OF PLEASANT SEATING.
FROM LINENS TO REFRIGERATOR TO THE FLOORS, THE ENTIRE PLACE IS EXCEPTIONALLY FRESH AND CLEAN.
THE KITCHEN IS WELL STOCKED.
THE HOUSE COMES WITH LINENS AND TOWELS. GIVEN THAT OUR GROUP IS VERY ACTIVE (SWIM, RUN, BIKE, TENNIS), WE FOUND OURSELVES DOING A TOWEL WASH A LITTLE MORE OFTEN THAN EXPECTED. THAT SAID, THE LAUNDRY ROOM IS TERRIFIC.
THE HOUSE LIVES UP TO ITS NAME. THE DESIGN, COLORS, AND CONDITION OF THINGS ADD UP TO A PEACEFUL, CALM ENVIRONMENT.
Thanks for being great guests and taking such good care of the house.Glad that now you know where the rest of the towels are for next time!
A truly amazing retreat!
Tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood, Sea Zen Inn is the perfect getaway for family and friends. Upon arrival we were immediately impressed by how immaculately clean and well laid out the property is. This location in Wellfleet is perfect for easy access to Rt. 6 and a short drive to other Cape Cod attractions from Chatham to Provincetown, while still providing much privacy.
Each nook of this designer property is aesthetically pleasing, with beautiful artwork offering delight at every turn. Enjoy breathtaking water views from the the panoramic decks, or luxuriate in calming tree lined views from the sunroom. We overpacked like a bunch of rookies and found there was no need! The kitchen is well equipped for an ambitious chef and plenty of linens are provided for convenience.
This house is perfect for spending time with family and friends, yet big enough for each individual to maintain a sense of privacy. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the mornings and dinner watching the sunset over the bay. Outdoor sitting areas on every level of this home was perfect for retreating with a good book.
Lastly, Carol the owner is a pleasure and so helpful. Thoughtful and thorough, our stay at Sea Zen Inn was perfect!
Such a pleasure to host such sweet guests!
We loved staying at this amazing and meticulously maintained home. It is peaceful, has stunning views and is in walking distance to a sweet Bay beach.
We enjoyed the bike path, the ocean beaches and particularly love swimming in the local ponds.
Every room in this house is appealing and we enjoyed sitting in the spacious living area in the evenings to watch the sunsets. The sunroom has a fantastic view of the entire Bay.
I highly recommend Sea Zen Inn!
Wow! We loved staying at this fabulous house! The living room area is so dramatic with the bay views and trees outside and the earth-tones and artwork inside. The house is really comfortable too; we had a couple of rainy days during our vacation but we didn't mind staying home at all. Even if you don't do yoga or meditate, the place seems to have it's own special 'vibe' of peacefulness which even our guests felt. What is also neat is that you are so close to the bay and the ocean beaches and town (we biked), but you really feel totally away from it all at this house. You really have to experience this place to understand....
Although we had vacationed in Wellfleet before, staying at Sea Zen Inn was really a surprising and transporting experience! The house is a marvel :each room has such a different character as if walking into a painting . Plenty of privacy in each of the bedrooms on different levels. Amazing windows and ,light in the living room and mindblowing views from the top deck. Lots of nice touches in the landscaping as well ( check out the cobblestone driveway and the Buddha in the zen garden). We also liked the house “handbook” and all the thoughtful information about things to see and do in the area. Can’t wait to come back to this fantastic house next year!
The house is located at a high spot in a residential neighborhood in pristine, quiet, nature laden South Wellfleet. A beautiful walk by the marsh takes you to a nearly private bay beach ideal for walking or high tide swimming. Also within five minutes (short bike ride or even shorter car ride) is Ocean Drive with several renowned National Seashore ocean beaches. The four-plex movie theater, a fantastic flea market, food shopping , as well as a renowned live theater ,and The Audubon Sanctuary are nearby .The latter has excellent trails, birding and nature programs. Downtown Wellfleet, within four miles, has numerous art galleries, restaurants, tennis courts and golf. Provincetown, at the outermost tip of the Cape is 15-20 minutes away.
