About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, in-town location, water views, sleeps 7

Lovingly restored in 2003 and updated in 2017 by its owners, this 200-year-old cottage is nestled in a grove of Locust Trees, situated on the banks of Wellfleet's historic Duck Creek. The 3 bedroom, nook-filled home boasts rare views of the Duck Creek marsh and its wildlife, and gives vacationers a multitude of indoor and outdoor options for privacy and relaxation. A large kitchen provides everything needed to create a meal worthy of the home's formal dining room, yet it offers a comfy spot from which to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a pastry from the bakery located right across the street.

Whether it's enjoying the nature from the home's 200 square foot screened in porch, relaxing in the backyard under shade-bearing trees, or sinking into any of the home's comfortable sofas, chairs or beds to read a book, the home affords amenities for young and old.

Why Brad Reichard chose Wellfleet

This property simply has it all. A walk to Wellfleet's galleries is simple. Parking the car and leaving it for days at a time is doable. Strolls in the national seashore are minutes away, as are the ponds and beaches. This is an absolute jewel of a home, which is located in Wellfleet's town center on the edge of Duck Creek.

What makes this house unique

Herons nest in the marsh behind the house, and the mellow tones of the town church bells help pass the hours and minutes at this home. A gentle breeze blows from Cape Cod Bay through Wellfleet Harbor directly to the home's backyard. Sunsets are beautiful from the back yard.

Highly recommended for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with grandparents and kids. There was plenty of room for every body. The living room has a door and can be used as a 3rd bedroom. The dining room and large screened in porch offered plenty of room for people to gather and/or find their own quiet place for reading a book. Great kitchen and super charming design details throughout. Can't wait to return.

Relaxing by the marsh

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year at this unique and relaxing house and we hope to return for many more. Being an antique home, it retains many of it's older quirks, yet also has many updates, including a beautiful sunroom where you can sit, relax and take in the beautiful views of the Wellfleet marsh. It's very close to downtown and convenient to the stores, restaurants and many different beaches. One of the things we love the best is being able to bring our dogs, so the whole family can enjoy vacation together. The owner's are very responsive if anything comes up.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home is immaculately kept, spacious, accessible to all parts of the Cape, and beautifully decorated. It is quaint and classic but has fun modern stylings worked in, like the gorgeous sun room and the outdoor shower (privacy maintained!). I will be coming back every summer!

Wellfeet is a magical place and so is this house!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location for exploring all Wellfleet has to offer, restaurants, antiques, bookstores, and yummy seafood. The house is so cozy and relaxing, where you can unplug and take a break from it all. BUT, if you're like me and never unplug there is Wifi and speaker system to keep the music playing and your IG pics uploading! I would come back here every summer....such an amazing house to bbq, cook lobsters, read a good book, and just enjoy the season. Love it!
