About The Owner

We built our home in Wellfleet in the 1990's and added the garage with the apartment in 2012. The apartment is a haven for family, friends and renters who want a quiet refuge in the woods of Wellfleet with all the modern amenities. We enjoy hiking the trails that lead from the house through the national seashore. We hike to the kettle ponds, and to the ocean on paths and dirt roads passing hidden homes and cottages along the way. We are located less than a mile from Truro so many of the trails are in Truro. Our bike excursions take us through the hills of Truro stopping at beaches and scenic sites along the way.

Why The Owner chose Wellfleet

We fell in love with Wellfleet as young adults. It is a gem that remains much the way it has always been. Wellfleet offers a step back to a simpler, slower way of life.

What makes this studio unique

The woods are a quiet place with hummingbirds, wild turkeys, butterflies, and fox. You can hear the ocean from our property. The neighborhood is a pleasant one for walking and the neighbors are friendly. We are tucked away, yet a 2 minute drive to Wellfleet center.

Clean, convenient, charming, pleasant experience.

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for 2 people. Great location close to the center of Wellfleet, as well as all the National Seashore beaches. The place was very clean, and looked just as pictured. The hostess was welcoming and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this spot!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Wellfleet Studio. It is amazing how all your needs can be met in basically one room. We cooked a few things ahead so we could just heat them in the microwave or toaster/convection oven so even the minimal kitchen worked out just fine. The place is beautiful, very clean and smart looking. Loved Mary's photo over the kitchen sink. The beds are comfy, location great and Mary's suggestions for hikes, dinner and other activities all turned out to be just great. We would love to return. Thx so much for making this property available.

The Woods of Wellfleet

  • 4 of 5

A wonderfully quiet spot for my friend George and me. We were very comfortable, had enough usable and satisfactory amenities. It was especially clean and neat. The owner, Tom Prince, contacted me with necessary info for getting in and out.( I liked the personal touch!) Want to buy the same brand toaster oven for it was easy to use. We couldn't find a frying pan to cook some breakfast food which was disappointing. Bed was extremely comfortable BUT the bottom corners of the bed frame caused us shin problems. We had to put couch pillows on them to keep from skinning our legs on their sharp edges. Suggestion..... get a new frame or a king mattress that actually fits the frame. Our thanks to Tom and Mary Prince for providing this experience for us. A friend had told me about HomeAway and lauded how positive her several experiences had been with it. We will definitely use HomeAway again. Thanks very much. Susan Parker

Very Nice!

  • 4 of 5

The property is a lovely studio, ideal for a single person, couple, or those with a younger child.

It is conveniently located off the ocean side of Rt. 6 in Wellfleet, not far from Truro. The wonderful National Seashore beaches are a short drive away.

Owners were on site, separate home, shared driveway. The studio provides your privacy. There are twin beds which were pushed together, comfortably. The bathroom was fine, with tub and shower.

The kitchen is limited, with a small fridge, microwave and hot plate. For our four night stay, we had not planned to eat in.

Overall, it served us very well for our intended long-weekend needs, with easy access to the great beaches, restaurants, and nearby entertainment. Payomet Performing Arts Center is a short drive.

Reasonably priced, especially if you want an upgrade from a motel and do not need a house.

New for 2017, is a private outdoor seating, and dining area behind the apartment via a private staircase. There is a mass grill located there as well. There are miles of hiking, mountain biking trails that start across the street from the apartment through the woods and along the kettle ponds of Wellfleet and Truro. You can hike all the way to Newcomb Hollow beach or to pristine sandy bottom ponds for swimming. Biking in the area is fantastic through the scenic towns of Wellfleet and Truro or all the way to Provincetown (13 Miles). Biking to the beach is a great way to avoid crowded beach parking lots. The Payment theatre in Truro has a first class venue of musicians throughout the spring, summer and fall. The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater and the Julie Harris Stage in Wellfleet have ongoing plays, comedy shows and entertainment.
