About Robert Shreefter
My wife and I are long-time residents of Wellfleet. We are both university faculty. I am also an artist and enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of the outer Cape-- and by artists and galleries. We just bought this house 5 years ago. For many years, we rented our previous Wellfleet home to visitors. This past summer, we opened our own gallery--Off Main Gallery--at 326 Main Street, rear. This is behind the Chocolate Sparrow and Nice Cream Shop. We show the work of many local artists.
Robert Shreefter purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Robert Shreefter chose Wellfleet
This property is in town and doesn't require crossing Route 6 to get to town, to ocean and bay beaches and ponds. Also, the center of town is a 5-minute walk from our quiet lane. We are off Briar Lane, and the house is secluded. The view out the bedroom window is breathtaking. There is a meadow and a wet land beyond that. You can watch the sun set from the window. There is a very private patio out the back door of the living room. Simple but beautiful furnishings and original artwork.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is an ideal place for a writer, and artist that needs a quiet and secluded place. Ideal for a couple--and has a queen-size bed upstairs and futon for child/children, downstairs

A lovely spot in Wellfleet
My wife and I had a lovely stay, during a quiet week in October. The cottage is just as described: snug, nicely furnished, and well-equipped. We would be happy to have the chance to stay again.
Sweet Cottage on the Cape
My husband and I stayed at this lovely, well-appointed cottage over our honeymoon. It was just perfect for two, and we had a wonderful time. The property is a short walk from the town center, but located on a quiet lane- you have a sense of complete privacy and peace though you are steps away from a bustling beach town. The owners are friendly and accommodating (happy to answer any questions), and very unobtrusive. Beaches (either bay or Atlantic) are an easy bike ride away. Whether you'd like to spend your time cooking romantic dinners for two and reading in the blissful calm at home, or if you'd prefer to explore restaurants, bars, and other attractions in Wellfleet, this cottage allows you the best of both worlds. Sorry to leave!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quaint and comfortable cottage. Though attached to the main house, it's still totally quiet and private. The location is super close to town (and the fab Flying Fish Restaurant!), the layout is optimal, decor is cozy/artsy with great style and full roomy kitchen is a bonus. Robert is a perfect host with lots of great recommendations for the best restaurants on the cape, thanks Robert!!
It's was so easy hosting people who enjoy being here on Outer Cape Cod! These guests, who gave us such a good and kind review, are such a great family--a young couple and their 5-year-old son. I enjoyed talking with them and especially appreciated how much they took advantage of the beautiful ocean and bay beaches, fresh water ponds, and the many walks through the National Seashore, and biking on the Cape Cod Bike Trail. They also enjoyed so many of the local restaurants.
What a wonderful thing when people can come and relax and enjoy their time in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Lovely, peaceful spot to relax
A peaceful, quiet get-away. Host Robert is friendly, looking to help you with whatever you need, but is in no way intrusive. Property is great and the restaurants in town are lovely. My wife and daughters and I had a most relaxing week. Outer Cape bliss: many beautiful town beaches, perfect weather, fresh fish at Hatch's to cook on the barbecue. Wellfleet is perfectly located on the Cape and this property is the ideal place to explore it. Highly recommended: we would return in a heartbeat.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a perfect 5 night getaway at this sweet, quiet cottage in Wellfleet. It was a simple, artistic, and romantic space, centrally located with easy access to beaches and ponds and a short walk to town. We would go back in a second!
Classic summer cottage hide away
This charming cottage offers that comfortable, classic summer cottage feel. The place was clean and well equipped for a summer stay. While tucked away on a quiet, sandy lane, the house is located just a short walk to town (Wellfleet). It was a treat to be so conveniently located to Main Street art galleries, restaurants, grocery store, historical society, farmers market, fish market, etc. Robert was most gracious and helpful with suggestions for local highlights not to miss. You will enjoy your stay here!
