About the property

Lovely 2 Bedroom Cottage Overlooking a Quiet Bay Beach

Beachfront cottage on Hiawatha, in an ideal location for picture perfect summer vacations, restful and invigorating spring getaways, or beautiful fall escapes. Literally steps from a quiet bay beach (no parking lot; only residents and foot traffic!) in the Indian Neck Heights area of Wellfleet, this cottage offers partial views of the water and gorgeous sunsets from the kitchen, living room, and patio. Spend fun and lazy days strolling to and from the water (no need to pack a lunch!), or take advantage of all the great attractions Wellfleet and the outer Cape have to offer. Less than 5 minutes from downtown Wellfleet and numerous great ponds and restaurants—not to mention miniature golf and the drive-in! The sandy beach is great for swimming, kayaking, boogie boarding, shellfishing, shell-hunting, or just relaxing, and features a tidal pool ripe for exploration. Meanwhile, back at the house, enjoy a well-equipped home with elegant decor and family-friendly comfort.

Additional features include: Outdoor shower, Washer Dryer, Air Conditioner, finished basement. Watch sunsets over the water from the west-facing bay windows. Cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, and wood paneling give the house an airy and rustic feel. The house sleeps up to 4 adults and a child, with a queen-sized bed, 2 twin beds, a trundle bed, and a crib (minor assembly required). Kitchen is well-equipped with a coffee-maker, toaster, microwave, stove and oven.

Beautiful and peaceful area!

  • 4 of 5

The house is surrounded by beautiful pine trees that make a peaceful sound as the wind blows through them. Sitting outside watch the glistening beach in the distance. The beach is a short stroll away and once you get there all the cares in the world seem to vanish! The house is sweet, but could use some kitchen utensils and pots and pans update. Sleeping at night is very quiet. The other owners and renters were all very nice and helpful with ideas of what to do in Wellfleet. We would love to return to the area one day soon!

Cozy House Close to Pristine Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at First Light Cottage. We have 3 very young children and loved the close proximity to the idyllic beach and the convenience of the eat-in kitchen. The cottage itself is clean and inviting. The beach was beautiful and perfect for young children – clean yellow sand, no real waves or undertow, plenty of shells, and an estuary connecting to the ocean with fiddler crabs, hermit crabs, periwinkles, tiny shrimp and lots of little fish.

When we weren’t on the beach, we enjoyed exploring the local farmers’ markets, ice cream parlors (our favorite was the Local Scoop in Orleans), and watching the seals (albeit from afar) in Chatham.

The owners were very responsive and very thoughtful. There were toys for inside and for the beach, a washer and dryer we could use, a high chair we could borrow and a picnic table outside with sun umbrella.

We really enjoyed our stay in Wellfleet and hope to be back again soon.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a short vacation this year - myself and my two young adult daughters. This was the perfect place to stay - the beach is lovely for walking, swimming and relaxing - and is literally steps away - just as listed. I drank my morning coffee sitting on the beach each morning - could not beat it! The cottage itself is just perfect - well maintained and cozy and just as described. The owners are lovely and easy to stay in touch with. Trips to Provincetown, and wandering through Wellfleet were great fun - and Macs Seafood (in P'town and Wellfleet) was our favorite - especially $1 oysters during happy hour. I would recommend this highly to friends and relative.

Cozy house on beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We have small children and the house was wonderful. It was clean, cozy and comfortable. And the location was amazing. The beach was beautiful. The water was very calm and not very deep, even at high tide. We are hoping to come back again next year.

Just about perfect

  • 5 of 5

We came, in part, to celebrate our 45th anniversary. The cottage met the posted description and our expectations. The owners are very kind and caring about their guests. The cottage is very comfortable and property were well maintained. We delighted in getting up in the morning and taking a long walk on the beach. The cottage is in near proximity to both Provincetown and Orleans. There are numerous excellent krestaurants in the immediate area (our favorite was Moby Dicks). Whether coming as a couple or family you will enjoy this cottage.

Wellfleet is one of the most well-loved areas on Cape Cod. A charming town with many shops and art galleries, delicious seafood restaurants, local oysters, lobster and fresh fish, the main attraction are the beachers and ponds and great family fun. Wellfleet's drive-in movie theater is a great time for all, and also the home to regular flea markets. Many opportunities for brid-watching, nature walks, miniature golf, homemade ice cream, etc. In short, a perfect vacation spot for solo travelers and families alike.
