Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautiful Wellfleet Geiger-Phillips architect-designed 4 bedroom custom home (2300 sq ft) with all amenities nestled in the woods of Wellfleet. Kitchen/dining area renovated 2016. -Just 1 mile to the center of town and marina. 3 beaches on the bayside (flat, warmer, kid-friendly) are nearby and 3 more on the oceanside (waves, surf, national seashore) are a 5 minute drive. This home is in a quiet, wooded area that borders conservation land, national seashore. The Herring River offers a peaceful oasis with amazing sunsets and birds.

House has an open floor plan upstairs, beautiful large deck for relaxing and grilling, and a king-bed master suite with its own private deck. Downstairs are 3 more bedrooms and 1.5 baths. 2 car garage, privacy, and quiet on a dead-end cul-de-sac.

Wellfleet is one of the most inviting communities for vacationing on Cape Cod thanks to its many bayside and oceanside beaches (and the secret kettle-ponds for fresh-water swimming), acres of national seashore for walking, hiking and birding.

Wellfleet is also an arts and culture center on the Cape with Preservation Hall the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre, Payomet (Truro), Harbor Stage Company, galleries plus many more restaurants, arts events, and a nightlife in nearby Provincetown (15 minutes away).

The recreational possibilities are endless -- biking, kayaking, surfing, and fishing. Biking in the Province Lands trail is like visiting another planet with its sand dunes and hills (by Cape Cod standards). Want to charter a boat for deep-sea fishing or whale-watching? A week at the sailing club down the street? All of this and more is a few minutes away.

If you like to shop Wellfleet has many boutiques and the Wellfleet flea market draws visitors from all over the Cape. At night you can pack up the gang and go to the drive-in (or the movie theaters).

Our house has everything you need for a memorable summer vacation - location, comfort, wireless internet and cable, and in 2016 a completely renovated and fully-equipped kitchen (some new photos included). All renters will receive our custom guide to the neighborhood with restaurant recommendations, favorite walks, rainy-day ideas and more.

This is a strictly smoke-free home and we are sorry that we can not accept pets.

About Jeff Behrens

We are travel, arts, outdoor, and food enthusiasts who have lived and worked in Boston for over 25 years.

Jeff Behrens purchased this house in 2012

Why Jeff Behrens chose Cape Cod

We have traveled around the world, but still find that our hearts belong in New England. As a kid I used to visit my grandparents on the Cape and was finally able to buy a beautiful house with my wife in Wellfleet. We love the beaches, the walks, the culture and the community here. The house is in a super quiet area surrounded by woods up on a hill. No traffic -- just the sounds of owls at night and great star gazing.

What makes this house unique

Amazing open-floor plan custom home and deck designed to capture the light at all times of the day. Main deck faces west to enjoy summer sunsets. Each of the larger bedrooms has a private deck too so there is always a place to get away and read or birdwatch.

Wellfleet has the best beaches, restaurants, and culture on the Cape. It's a short drive to Provincetown and 20 minutes to Orleans.

Great walks from the house along the marsh in the National Seashore. Sunsets on Duck Harbor Beach are the best. In the morning bike down to PB's for fresh-baked French pastries and coffee or just take the untraveled back roads to Truro. In the afternoon stop by the wonderful Wellfleet library (5 minute bike ride from the house) or walk down to the harbor for some amazing seafood at Mac's. If it's a warm day you can take a quick dip on one of the clean, warm kettle ponds and then enjoy an outdoor shower back at the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great visit to Wellfleet. The house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood but still close to downtown, beaches, and lakes. Lots of light, great deck, and plenty of space. The kitchen is terrific and well-equipped for real cooking.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a three generation family vacation at this house and had a great time--a beautiful home with a perfect kitchen for family meals, big enough for all of us, plenty of activities at the beaches and ponds, close enough to town to walk or bike but nestled in the quiet of the woods. Great, great summer vacation.

Great Home with a Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious home with a very large deck which is great for family cook outs.

To us the best feature of this home is its location. It is in a very quiet location that is just a few minutes from a both a few pond beaches and a few ocean beaches. You can get to all of these beaches with having to go onto Route 6 which is usually busy on any summer day.

On several days we swam in the pond in the morning and the ocean beaches in the afternoon.

My grandkids loved being able to go to both pond and ocean beaches in the same day.

We very much enjoyed our week and would certainly rent this home next year.
