Beautiful Venue for the whole Family
We had our wedding here and had plenty of room for both mine and my husband's family. It is within walking distance to all of the best restaurants and galleries. Everyone loved it.
The main house is beautiful and the cottages are just as nice. Be aware - you must also rent your linens from a separate company. This will add cost but it's well worth it. The house had everything we needed and April was a dream to work with.
It was amazing
This was our fourth stay at The Moorings and it just keeps getting better. Great location, great space which means a great vacation
Perfect in every way. Can't wait to go back again!
This wonderful historic home and three cottages are known as "The Moorings" or heaven as I call it.
We were lucky enough to stay here with family and friends attending our daughter's (our only) wedding in Wellfleet.
I can't say enough about how perfect it was. The property, accommodations (including comfort of the beds) and the "setting" exceeded our expectations beyond belief. I can't recommend it enough.
The property is beautiful, peaceful, well stocked, decorated in a colorful "Cape" style, and April (owner) was terrific to work with. It felt like home.
We hosted barbecues and get-togethers throughout the week - many while sitting in front of a fire at the water's edge. We utilized the beauty of the venue as a back-drop for precious photographs. The large dining room provided a great gathering spot to assemble wedding favors and enjoy morning coffee. The sunroom was magic. I've already had requests from other's to have a regular reunion there. We all miss it!
Thank you April for sharing this picturesque home with us. Wonderful memories abound from guests young and old.
The property was perfect for what we needed.
We needed a place where the wedding party and friends/cousins of the bride and groom could stay during the run-up to a wedding and where they could hang out afterwards. The property was perfect for that. The spot is beautiful. The combination of the main house and the out-buildings offered both plenty of privacy and places to convene. And, as a starting point for the bridal party's walk to Preservation Hall for the wedding itself, the Moorings could not have been better. I should also note that the owner was lovely and responsive as we planned for our stay.
Great location in beautiful Victorian home.
We have stayed several times in other homes in Wellfleet area but I really enjoyed this the most. The location was fantastically close to the pier, Mayo beach and the town center. So nice not to have to constantly get in the car and drive. The Victorian Main House's front porch was a favorite to sit for hours and read, have beverages and/or chat. The kitchen and indoor porch were also much used and well supplied. The cottages in back were pretty typical of what you would find on the Cape and clean and tidy. The owner was very responsive to our needs, such as when we accidentally ripped a door screen, the handyman was there the next day and repaired it. I would definitely recommend this home and would love to stay there again.
A perfect group vacation spot!
We rented the property as a "home base" for our wedding. We had 18 people stay. We hosted a BBQ, after party and brunch in the backyard surounding the wedding. The space not only met our needs, but was gergeous. The house felt much larger than we were expecting and was well equipped. We used paper plates and napkins but there were plenty of dishes. Two of the fridges had kitchenettes, which were great. The main house had an extra fridge in the basement which was a great bonus.
The property manager was great. One of the BBQ wasn't working very well and she arranged for a new one right in time for our 30 person BBQ. The space was great for a family gathering because folks could walk to nearby restaurants or hang out in the very large yard.
Thank you for taking the time to review The Moorings. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that it was a good venue for your pre- and post-wedding activities!! Please let me know if your travels bring you back to Wellfleet and you need a place to stay. Thanks again, April
