This 1847 Cottage was completely renovated for the 2013 season.

The cottage has a fully-equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove and microwave. A washer and dryer and broadband wireless internet connection are also available. The living room has a gas fireplace, cable TV, Blu-Ray DVD, and comfortable seating. There is one bedroom on the first floor with a full size bed.

Wonderful, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend a week! We had great weather followed by the remnants of Hurricane Joaquin. For three days we were house bound and enjoyed the house so much!

Bill and Joy are such wonderful hosts and we could have just moved in.

The location is great with plenty of food options within a hundred yards of the house, but the feel is much more remote and natural.

Wonderful week in great location

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacation rentals we have ever had. Everything in the Lost Oak cottage was exactly as described. The cottage is obviously well maintained, clean, and comfortable. The cottage is at the end of a driveway with a few other cottages on it but felt private, overlooking a marsh. We enjoyed having so many conveniences including a good small grocery/general store, bakery, and liquor store a short walk away. We also enjoyed having the bike path right there even though we didn't ride bikes - it was a great place for my morning jog. Everything else we needed including walks at the national seashore was available within a relatively short drive, and the scenery in the area is awesome. We enjoyed walking to the beach, visiting lighthouses at the national seashore, and the trails at the nearby Audubon preserve. Owners responded promptly to our questions and were easy to deal with. Hope to return.

The best rental in Wellfleet!

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing here for the past three years and plan to come next year. It is perfect in every way, The owners are friendly and helpful, they have created a beautiful and relaxing haven! Perfectly located, a short walk to the ocean, bike trail and great bakeries and restaurants. The house accommodates easily 6 people. We all like to cook and the kitchen is very well designed. Myself and friends are artists and we have enjoyed the quiet beauty and inspiration this place has to offer.

Exceptional accommodation. Prime location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and with all the essential conveniences for our family of 2 adults and 4 teenagers. The bedrooms and living quarters were excellent. The kitchen was well-equipped with ample room for cooking and dining; can't beat the instant access to the grocery/liquor stores for last-minute essentials. There are also a variety of nearby dining options when we weren't grilling.

A very short drive or a brief walk, the home is minutes from the beach. The village of Wellfleet is conveniently accessible for shopping, fresh catch-of-the-day, and frequent evening ice cream on the pier. We also made the relatively short drive to Provincetown for an afternoon whale watch; a truly amazing experience.

We enjoyed the nearby Cape Cod Rail Trail for morning walks or daily jogs (have to bring the bikes next time), and there are plenty of local spots (freshwater and saltwater) to drop in the kayak. There were too many options for one week. It was a great all around experience. Joy and Bill are gracious hosts. We look forward to the opportunity to return.

Beautiful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful rental. I loved the rooftop deck and lounging while our son napped. It was also great to have so many outdoor eating options with a gas grill and a fire pit where we made S'mores one night. The house is clean, well kept and a great layout with an interesting history behind it. The location is also awesome with a liquor store, general store and two bakeries within walking distance- so you don't have to go far for supplies. The house itself has a lot of items you wouldn't think would be available in a rental- scotch tape, board games, lots of books and kitchen supplies. The beach is only a half mile up the road and it's about mid-way between P-town and Chatham if your looking to do daytrips. I loved all the little extras on the property. I hope to return.

Spectacular, even off season

  • 4 of 5

If you are contemplating spending time at this peaceful property, do it! The lower Cape is very peaceful without being secluded and there is much within walking distance, including a bistro, post office and wine/spirits shop. But the real reason stay is the delightful house and spectacular views (bring binoculars)The first and second floor bedrooms are comfortable and the lower level is a virtual apartment. The owners have provided an eclectic library and also board games to keep you entertained. The house is certainly beautifully laid out, environmentally friendly, clean and furnished/decorated with TLC. Cell phones are unreliable on the property, but the rental comes with a landline phone to be used. Cape Cod is a extraordinary place to visit and this is a wonderful vacation rental.
