Why Tammy Colvin chose Cape Cod

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Quintessential beach front, updated Cape Cod home

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!

Wonderful time at Alden Road!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A perfect haven to clean and restore your soul.

Following is a letter we left at the cottage for the owners. This was our second stay.

Jan 2, 2013

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.

Warmest regards,

Giannina and Jaime ( New York City)

October on Alden Road!

  • 5 of 5

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!
