About Rosemary Milliman

I have been in love with the cape since first visit. My dream of owning on the cape came true in 2000. Then in 2011, this cottage, the cottage right next to my original came available. With a little luck, it happened.

Rosemary Milliman purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Rosemary Milliman chose Wellfleet

This property shares a big backyard with my original....

What makes this cottage unique

This allows families that are larger than a 2 bedroom would accommodate an opportunity to rent two side-by-side cottages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This beautiful cottage is the perfect home for fall in Wellfleet for a romantic getaway or a small family. It is wonderfully appointed. The owner, Rosemary, has thought of everything needed for a stay at the beach ...right down to the beach bags to cart your things over to have morning coffee on the beach. Cook your seafood (fresh from the bay) in the cozy kitchen or on the grill, enjoy an evening watching the stars at the firepit, curl up with a book in the wicker chairs in the front of the house, or enjoy breakfast on the patio. Curl up in front of the fireplace with a book or just chill and watch the new TV shows. Everything in the cottage speaks of the owner's love of the area and knowledge of what makes guests comfortable.

The area is perfect for exploration - on foot, by bike or off in a kayak to to the salt marshes or the beaches of the harbor. Watch the oystermen farm everyday, walk to dinner (Macs. the Bookstore, the Lighthouse, or Winslow's Tavern), order lobster at the fish store around the corner (they cook it - you clean it), explore the ocean beaches or take a picnic lunch to the kettle ponds. Of course, if you are into shopping, the area is full of wonderful shops for unique gifts for families during the holidays.

Wellfleet in the fall is pristine and fun, without the hassle of summer crowds and the beach is HEAVENLY! Of the ten days we were there, we spent time every day but 2 on the beach.

Rosemary is a wonderful - responsive and knowledgeable about the area.

She is supportive during the rental process and makes you feel welcome!

You are missing out on a wonderful experience if you do not consider this adorable cottage.

We loved this cottage! We have stayed at so many different places on Cape Cod but this is the best by far. The cottage has everything you could need. The kitchen is well stocked, there is beach gear and you are across the street from the beach. This was the best vacation my family of 4 has ever had. We could walk to the beach, park, basketball courts and had a couple restaurants to choose from. If we had any questions or if something came up we could be in contact with Rosemary and she was fantastic. We can't wait to get back to this wonderful cottage to have another fantastic vacation!

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first stay in Wellfleet and at this cottage. The cottage was very clean with modern amenities (Google TV, solar, good WiFi) yet with the rustic charm of a cottage. The kitchen was well equipped and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The house is also a short 1 minute walk to the beach which can't be beat. We were also able to walk into town and to the restaurants so it was nice to park the car and not need it too much after we arrived. Definitely a great choice for a place to stay!

Myself, my son and his two teenage daughters just had a delightful stay at Rosemary's cottage. The cottage is so charming. The beds were very comfortable, the cottage was extremely clean, and although the size might seem to appear small, once we got there we were so pleased with how well we all fit just fine. The kitchen is equipped to the T's. There were more shiny pots and pans than we could ever use - whatever we needed, it was there. The outdoor sitting areas were delightful. The neighborhood was perfect. Very peaceful and quiet. We rented bikes for two days and the rest rode the Cape Cod Rail Trail one day and then left from the cottage and rode to Provincetown. I met them at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown which is absolutely beautiful. From there we drove up the road to the Visitors Center which is not to be missed. This cottage more than lived up to our expectations and we would definitely hope to come back some day. We live in California and Arizona so not an easy trek, but Cape Cod was awesome as was the cottage!!

Myself, my son and his two grown daughters just had the most wonderful stay at Rosemary's cottage. Although small, we all had very comfortable beds and the space seemed just fine. The cottage was extremely clean, charming and so well equipped. The kitchen had more shiny utensils than we could ever have used. Anything that needed to be available for cooking, it was there! The various sitting areas around the cottage were delightful. We rented a couple of bikes and the rest of the group rode the Cape Cod Rail Trail one day and the next day they rode from the cottage out to Provincetown. A long trek to be sure but they loved it. I met them out at Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown which is a beauty. From the beach we drove up to the Visitors Center right up from the beach - that is not to be missed. Simply beautiful. At the end of each day, it was wonderful to come back to the cottage in Wellfleet and the quiet and calmness there. All in all, I hope we can make the trek back to Rosemary's cottage some day. We all live in California and Tucson so it is a distance, but we would love to do it.

Perfect Get Away Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect get away spot. The location is ideal, close to everything Wellfleet has to offer but still quiet and private. Proximity to the beach can't be beat. The cottage itself is both cozy and modern and has all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay: full kitchen, dishwasher, laundry, outdoor shower,gas fireplace, flat screen TVs and Internet/Google TV.

I have stayed here many many years and the cottage is always impeccably maintained. I've had no complaints but the owner is always prompt in responding to any questions or needs I might have.

Wellfleet is uniquely beautiful, with a wide variety of activities for everyone. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
