About the property

4 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathrooms, slps 6, 6 person hot tub(winter use only), wood stove

Sitting on the gentle slope of a Welfleet sand dune at 20 Nauhaught Bluff Road--this charming 6 room vacation home sleeps 6 people comfortably. We refer to it as Hydrangea Pointe--so we are busily planting hydrangeas. Arts and crafts style windows allow gorgeous Cape Cod sunlight to stream in all sides of the house. The living and dining area is an open floor plan, and the newly decorated space is bright, airy and eclectic in style. We just installed a wood pellet stove and 6 person outdoor hot tub for winter visitors. New kitchen stove is electric, and kitchen is fully appointed. A washer/dryer is available in the house for your convenience. The large picture window overlooks the fenced in side yard, and the property also has an additional fenced in side yard on it's opposite side for more space to spread out and play or relax. Parking for 2 cars. Basic cable and wifi included. Street is not a through street, so traffic is minimal. Shore is 2 /10ths of a mile away, and a lovely walk along the shoreline will take you over Uncle Tims footbridge and into Wellfleet Center, where you can enjoy the restaurants, galleries and all the spots that make Wellfleet so memorable all year round. The shoreline walk is truly stunning and sunsets here are spectacular. Some of Cape Cod's best beaches are a stones throw away-and visitors have a choice of ocean side beaches or bay side beaches (which tend to be a bit warmer)in addition to the famous fresh water kettle ponds. Wellfleet's famous Drive In theater is a short drive up Route 6 and the Audubon Sanctuary is not far after that, as are many other fun activities and things for everyone in a family or group to enjoy. Sunday to Sunday during the high season.

Why Joe Fallon or Whit Hendon chose Cape Cod

GREAT location, and super charming. For winter rentals there is a wood stove and outdoor 6 person hot tub. Close to restaurants open year round! Winter getaway or summer sojourn!

What makes this house unique

Right at mid point of Chatham and Provincetown. The house is just 15 - 20 minutes in either direction to both of these communities for those rainy days when you may need something more to do. Wellfleet Village is literally right around the corner and has all of the amenities for a SUPER Cape vacation. Best beaches within a 5 minute drive for ocean side AND bay side beaches. Short drive to PB Boullangerie and Duck Creek Inn Resort and pub is a short walk and open all year!

Beautiful home, great location, very accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is just minutes away from the beach and a hiking trail that goes through Uncle Tim'a island and to the town of Wellfleet. The home is beautifully decorated, warm and has all of the amenities one could hope for in a vacation home. Wellfleet is only 15 minutes car ride away from Provincetown and has a share of its own quaint restaurants and places to visit. As an added treat on our walk through the beach in the morning we came witnesses to a rescue of a flock of Risso dolphins that came too close to the shore during the high tide. It was pretty remarkable. Thank you again to our wonderful hosts and we hope to come again!

Great Location for access to the beaches.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as advertised and the pictures were indicative of what we found upon arrival. The cottage is 300' off Route 6 less than a mile to the entrance road for Wellfleet Harbor. Being that close to the main road is convenient and yet does not come with noise or traffic deterrents. In fact, the yard is large and private.

The cottage is an old beach house that is functional and well cared for. It is old, which is charming but you need to be aware that it is not plush nor fancy. Just as a beach cottage should be IMO. Painted hardwood floors make for easy clean up and the informal nature of the home and decor yielded a relaxed atmosphere. The beds in the four bedrooms were very comfy and I assume they had new mattresses. You have to pass through or by a couple of the bedrooms to access another bedroom.

There are a dozen or more beaches within a 15 minute drive. One of the benefits is that it comes with the ability to go to all of the Wellfleet town beaches. You would just have to go to the town office to get your pass. We did not bother with this as we hit 5 of the National Seashore beaches with our $20 season pass instead.

Whit was super easy to deal with and very thorough. I hope to return next summer so don't take my week.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cabin two years in a row and will be back again. The house was clean, casual/kid friendly, beautifully decorated with soothing beachy colors and decor and had everything we needed. The outdoor shower after a day at the beach is heaven. The property owners are super friendly, helpful, available and welcoming. Great location close to everything, 5 minute drive to Wellfleet beaches and Great Pond. Could not have been happier with our experience.

Great stay, great location

  • 5 of 5

Wellfleet is a great location for exploring the Cape,, right in the middle of everything. Whit was an excellent host, answered any questions we had immediately and was extremely helpful. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a great way to see some of the sights via bike. The walk across Uncle Tim's bridge was very nice, and Wellfleet had some great places for dinner. The house was clean, spacious, and well stocked with everything we needed for making our own dinner. Thank you for making our stay in Cape Cod a memorable one!

Wonderful Weekend*Epic Escape*Outstanding Oysters!

  • 5 of 5

Super Cute Cottage. Very Clean. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in their home. They are extremely helpful and always available if you have any questions about the cottage or the Cape Cod Area. Heat, hot water and appliances all worked perfectly. The cottage is rustic (not fancy) but that was what we were looking for! Walk to Wellfleet Center for amazing oysters at The Bookstore/Restaurant (We consumed dozens at a sitting!). A short drive brought us to the Ocean at Marconi beach--Love the dunes/dropoff. Thank You for sharing this wonderful cottage. We can't wait to return! : )

Great Cape Cod Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at the Hydrangea Point cottage over the Wellfleet Oysterfest weekend. The owners were easy to work and made the process comforting and welcoming.

The house is located just outside of town. It is a short 5 minute drive from all of the restaurants and bars in downtown Wellfleet. Given the traffic that came into town for the Oysterfest, we decided to walk a few times, and this only took us about 15 minutes.

The house was clean and simple. Exactly what you are looking for in cap cod getaway. The kitchen and living room are connected and allow for a great open feel to the living area. It is obvious the house is well taken care of and the owners are proud to share their home.

The Lighthouse in Wellfleet Center

Our location offers everything for a quintessential Cape Cod vacation. Walk down our sleepy street-which ends at Welfleet Harbor-and proceed through a magical nature preserve that leads over Uncle Tim's pedestrian footbridge directly to town center. Town center offers great shopping and dining, galleries and historic sites. In the summertime the town center also offers weekly farmer, artisanal foods and art markets. We are located off of route 6 (not ON route 6), and equidistant to Provincetown and Chatham (15 minute drive). Famous Welfleet drive-in theater is a must for kids PM entertainment, and doubles as a HUGE flea market on Sats and Sun. Miles of both harbor and ocean shoreline provide endless exploration and beaching opportunities. KETTLE PONDS allow for yet another option to cool down and relax and/or reflect. The W.H.A.T. (Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre) is a 5 minute walk from the property and offers fabulous live professional theatre group performances. Audubon sanctuary is an incredible nature preserve within the Wellfleet borders as well.
