Want to relax at the cottage? There is the wrap around deck, screened in porch, lower level patio or pine shaded hammock to enjoy. Want to feel the sand between your toes? Walk 300 feet down to the ocean on a private path just outside your door to a private ocean beach.
High on a knoll in the National Seashore, this cottage is located on Wellfleet’s ocean side in a quiet nook just off Ocean View Drive between Le Counts Hollow Beach and White Crest Beach. It has private parking. Only a few other cottages are in view.
From the king master bedroom or twin guest room you can wake up to the sun rise and the surf rolling in and have your morning coffee on your deck or screened in porch.

Wellfleet’s freshwater ponds, restaurants, art galleries and other attractions are all just a few minutes away. Wellfleet is known as the Art Gallery town. There are wonderful restaurants to eat in that specialize in fresh seafood.There are tennis courts and a golf course. The National Sea Shore visitors’ center, Marconi center, and Audubon Wildlife center are popular attractions to visit. The bay and freshwater ponds are fun to swim in. One of the few drive in movie theaters in the USA is in Wellfleet as well as a fun flea market.
My family has vacationed in Wellflet for 60 years. This is a unique cottage, only 4 years old, yet with an old soul. It is one of only a few 4 season cottages on the ocean that is available to rent. There is a magnificent view of the ocean from almost every window. We enjoy sharing this wonderful place with our renters.
We choose this property because of the amazing view of the ocean, easy ocean access, the simplicity of the lay out and the ability to use it year round.
Everything was TOP NOTCH WONDERFUL!!!
Communication with the owner was so easy and very helpful for us since we were coming from Southern California. The location in the National Seashore was absolutely ideal. The VIEW was out of this world. Unobstructed, large ocean view. There was an abundance of beauty and nature, making for such serenity and quiet. Truly outstanding. We walked with our surf boards down the path at the end of the driveway to the ocean. Our little 2 year old loved walking down this path to the ocean as well! (no surfboard...yet)
The home is updated, clean, bright, open, warm, airy, breezy. We loved laying in bed and catching the burning sunrises. The deck was large enough for us to host a couple of lovely get-togethers with longtime friends and family who came out to see us on the visit. The grill was awesome, too! And we loved filling the bird feeder and watching the cardinals, chickadees, and squirrels feed ;)
I have to say my favorite room ended up being the enclosed porch. It was perfect for listening to all the quiet and sounds of nature, but never worrying about the weather. I read out there in the rain; i put the fan on in the heat.
We absolutely loved it and cannot wait to make it happen again!
Thanks for everything!
We would love to rent this place next year as we enjoyed it so much. The cottage was extremely well equipped and very comfortable.
We had a wonderful, relaxing holiday at Alden Road. It was THE best time we have every had in renting in Wellfleet. Alden Road felt like home and had proper cooking pans, lobster rating tools, furnished like a cottage should be furnished, and coupled with the view, the sound of the ocean, and that amazing deck!!!! We never used the TV!!! The kids read, played some computer games and our 6 year old sat at the tables on the deck and started to write " his first book." Needless to say, we have super fab memories of our time there . If we decide to comeback next summer---we would LOVE to stay at Alden Road again!
Following is a letter we left at the cottage for the owners. This was our second stay.

Dear Tammy and Terry,
Once again thank you so much for another wonderful experience at your house. We are ever grateful for your generous approach with supplies, and the care you have taken to make your home comfortable and warm. The open gesture to the ocean really marks the days – and for us , city dwellers, cleanses and nourishes the soul.
So, we go back to our lives in New York feeling relaxed and restored.
Thank you, once again! And may your New Year be blessed with light, love and much laughter.
We hope to return to your perfect haven and perhaps have the pleasure of meeting you.

Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had a lovely week with gorgeous weather, and we treasured every minute of family bonding in such a charming, clean and cozy cottage. Not only is the house new and updated, the ocean views are spectacular, and the oversize deck and screened porch provided fantastic spaces for everyone in my family to find their own quiet places to relax. The meticulous attention to detail and comforts were very much appreciated! We were able to watch minkes and seals constantly, wave to the paragliders, and the location was perfect for walking miles every day. We woke early every morning to witness the rising of the sun over the water, and I can honestly say that the wonder and beauty of it never gets old. Some of the best views in Wellfleet. Can't wait to return!
We traveled to this beautiful home for a little winter getaway for our family of five. Tammy and Terry have thought of everything! The house is positively sparkling, still filled with that brand-new feel. The light in the home is stunning-- a photographer's dream, for sure. The view cannot be beat, and the Atlantic panorama was a definite highlight of our trip. We found that we just liked to stay at the house and enjoy everything there was to see from its windows. Our time at this home may be one of the most relaxing we've had on the Cape yet. We've been going to the Truro/Wellfleet area for 25+ years, and this trip was definitely an ultimate experience. Rent with confidence and assurance that this is the one! Many thanks to Tammy and Terry!
