About the property

A true getaway in the woods of Wellfleet.

This roomy, air conditioned, studio apartment is ideal for two people or two people and a young child, who are seeking very comfortable accommodations for a getaway to the outer cape and the best it has to offer. The apartment is located above a detached garage but we do not keep cars in the garage. There's s no car noise or fumes. The garage is tricked out with a ping pong table and a dart board set up for guest use. Guests have a private entrance and although the garage is located next to the main house, your privacy is important to us so upon an initial greeting, you can be totally on your own. The apartment has cathedral ceilings so it feels very roomy. It features an efficiency kitchen (not a full kitchen), a large bath, a large closet, large screen tv and cable, free wifi, and a private outdoor area equipped with a gas grill, a dining table and chaise lounges. Located in the beautiful, quiet Wellfleet Woods development, this property is surrounded by national seashore land. A short ¾ mile walk on a path through the national seashore woods brings you to beautiful, crystal clear, sandy bottomed Gull Pond and if you are to explore further, there are many other ponds back in the woods. You can even hike to the beach on the paths through the woods of Wellfleet and Truro! The national seashore beaches (Newcomb Hollow, Cahoon Hollow, White Crest, LeCount Hollow), Gull Pond Landing, Wellfleet Center and Wellfleet Harbor are all less than 3 miles away. If you love biking, this area offers scenic routes all the way to Provincetown. Mary is a professional photographer and available by appointment to take portraits on the beautiful beaches and settings in Wellfleet.

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 love sharing our insider knowledge of the area and activities with our guests. 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 Wellfleet and Truro stopping at beaches and scenic sites along the way. We are avid sailors and also have a motorboat for traveling to remote beaches.

The Owner purchased this studio in 2012

Why The Owner chose Wellfleet

We fell in love with Wellfleet as young adults and built the main house in the early 1990's. The location of the apartment is located in a quiet wooded residential neighborhood across that abuts national seashore hiking trails that lead to totally swimmable kettle ponds. The apartment is located under 3 miles from Wellfleet Center, ocean and bay beaches, restaurants, The famous Beachcomber restaurant on Cahoon Hollow beach, hiking trails, theater, golfing, and shopping. The town of Wellfleet is a gem that remains much the way it has always been. Wellfleet offers a step back to a simpler, slower way of life and a true old cape cod experience.

What makes this studio unique

The woods are a quiet place with hummingbirds, wild turkeys, butterflies, and fox. 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, ocean and bay beaches. There is a beautiful public golf course in Wellfleet and another in Truro where we love to golf. The ponds in Wellfleet and Truro are crystal clear water, sandy bottomed and perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. Biking is second to none with gorgeous scenery all the way to Provincetown. Wellfleet is famous for its oysters and they are served in almost every restaurant.

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. The Wellfleet Beach comber, The Bookstore Restaurant, and The Pearl offer scenic, casual waterfront/waterview dining.
