About the property

3 Bedroom Cottage, Sleeps 7 Comfortably, Great Outdoor Spaces To Enjoy The View

The Yardarm is a Classic Cape Cod cottage updated with three bedrooms (1 Queen, 1 Full, 3 Twins), well appointed kitchen, outdoor shower, full bath with shower / tub, charcoal grill, coffee maker, blender, microwave, oven, blow dryer, and several fans to enhance the ocean breezes. For the one bedroom without a view there is air-conditioning.

The outdoor shed provides beach supplies (toys, umbrella, chairs) and room to store your personal recreation items. There is plenty of parking with an extra lot above the cottage with unobstructed views.

The Yardarm is comfortably furnished with swivel chairs to ensure everyone gets a good view for movie night and a great night sleep with memory foam mattresses on all beds.

The best part of the Yardarm is the outdoor space. There is plenty of seating options in the front and back of the cottage to relax or entertain. Newly added is a private space (up and behind the cottage) with additional parking and a large deck with plenty of seating to afford you a clear view of the marina and Indian Neck. This is sure to become your favorite location. We have many repeat rentals, so availability is limited.

About Andrea (Manager)

I fell in love with the Cape the first time I came here at a young age. My family and I would travel to Sweetbriar Forest campground in Orleans with our Starcraft pop-up camper in tow. I always dreamed of owning on the Cape and someday making it my home.

Andrea (Manager) purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Andrea (Manager) chose Wellfleet

My dear friend, Kathleen Nagle, showed me the Yardarm because she knew that I would love the challenge of bringing the cottage back to life. She was absolutely right. Seeing the cottage improve each year has been a joy. The latest improvement was additional parking with a new land parcel with an unencumbered view of the harbor. It is the ideal spot for morning coffee. There is an outdoor shucking station, perfect for Oysterfest weekend. And the location? Start the day with some tennis (just bring a racket and some water), then grab your raft and walk to the beach - don't even bother with a towel. After dinner, take a late night walks to the pier for ice cream. It is a charming place with lots of outdoor gathering options and views.

What makes this cottage unique

The thing I love the most about the Yardarm is its location and its history. Everything is close by and easy to walk to. Having "no car days" is a breeze and something I do often when we stay. The Yardarm was established by a poor immigrant. He purchased the land and built each cottage himself. I love that we have been able to update the cottage while maintaining its original charm.

Relax, Rejuvenate in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

A true gem in Wellfleet. The property is clean, beautifully maintained and has ample outdoor seating to enjoy the cool breeze and the amazing views. Take advantage of the quiet solitude and take a stroll on the beach or read a book in the sun-drenched living room. I love taking a quick jaunt into town and shopping in the local galleries or grabbing a bite from Mac's Shack. Will happily return and highly recommend to others!

The Essence of Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

The Yardarm was perfect for our Fall vacation. The home was beyond our expectations is size, cleanliness, & comfort (great master bedroom mattress!!) We spent our early mornings and evenings in the lawn furniture mesmerized by the view of the bay and enjoyed watching the oyster men harvesting their daily catch. This view of Wellfleet bay is priceless. At this time of year the neighborhood was very quiet and peaceful. We biked all around and were able to access the famous Cape Cod rail trail without having to transport our bikes. Sunsets and sunsets were outstanding. It was just a short walk to couple of great restaurants as well as our favorite, Macs seafood "shack" on the pier. The owner and manager were totally easy to work with corresponded promptly and returned our deposit immediately. I look forward to renting Yardarm again. It came to feel like our seaside home.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved the sunsets and short walk to the beach across the street. It was a well stocked kitchen with many amenities. It was comfortable. It was quiet at night to hear the sounds of nature. I felt completely relaxed. Other than the initial grocery store trip, I could leave my car parked and enjoy the harbor and restaurants. I will come again and I have recommended it to my friends.

Great Escape to the Cape

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed cottage with beautiful views from the living room and two of the bedrooms. Lots of outdoor seating/entertainment space. Kitchen is stocked with dishes, glassware, pots/pans, and all appliances, including a dishwasher. Outdoor shower is a treat after a swim. Very short walk to the beach! Easy walk to tennis and basketball courts, nearby galleries, restaurants, theater, and shops in town. There are games, books, DVDs, and Internet access for additional entertainment options. There is plenty of parking. We really enjoy staying at the Yardarm Cottage and exploring Wellfleet and other nearby cape attractions!

Amazing View of Wellfleet Bay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has a great location, you can enjoy a great view of the water, beach and sail boats from almost any part of the property. Mayo beach is just down a few steps and across the street. Beach is nice and sandy and in low tide you can watch the oyster farmers tend to the oysters.

Well appointed property everything you need! Not your typical rental. Dishwasher! No one wants to be washing dishes on vacation!

A quick walk to the wellfleet harbor gives access to great restaurants and galleries and a little further you reach will Main Street Wellfleet. Buy oysters at Mac's, fresh from the harbor and use the shucking station to prepare them and enjoy them in the front or back deck both have a great view.

We will be returning next year!

Perfect property for fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that for many years my wife and I have vacationed on Cape in Chatham, Orleans, and Dennis. This year my wife convinced me to go a little further North and I was not disappointed. There is only one thing to say about this property: AMAZING! The property is excellently equipped with everything you need to enjoy the comforts of home with none of the stress. The beds are all every comfortable and there are plenty of seating options both inside and out. The deck omg the deck. In addition to the cottage itself, the views are incredible. You simply can't beat having a cup of coffee while the sun rises over the Wellfleet harbor.

The property is maybe 100 feet to a quiet beach great for families and folks that want to have a relaxing afternoon. About half a mile (literally a ten minute stroll) down the road are a bunch of restaurants (the Pearl, the Bookstore, Macs), some bars (the Bomb Shelter, the restaurants all have bars as well), art galleries and more. The town of Wellfleet is only a short drive and has great amenities as well.

The cottage is in a fantastic location because not only was I able to get a great run in everyday, my wife and I were able to ride our bikes almost everywhere. One day we drove over to the Beachcomber on Cahoon Hollow beach, ate some great lobster rolls, drank one too many drinks and listened to some great music.

All in all, you can't beat the location, the price, the amenities, and feeling like you are truly part of the Cape experience.
