About Justina Carlson

My family has owned property in Wellfleet since 1972. I returned here to retire, drawn back by Wellfeet's great beauty and unique character. Like so many 'year 'rounders,' I volunteer in our town's government. My husband shellfishes --- raking for clams in the pink sunrise!

Why Justina Carlson chose Wellfleet

There simply aren't many classic Cape Cod cottage colonies left on the waterfront. We wanted the simplicity of the barefoot, sandy, beach summers we grew up with.

What makes this cottage unique

Any bad mood vanishes, as soon as you turn onto Hiawatha road and see 'Sewell's Gutter,' the estuary that flows into the beach. At the cottage, the beach immediately lures you from the patio---to stroll and see what's happening at the water. The air smells like salt. Children run free, and adults often start thinking of a glass of wine & grilling something for dinner...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words can barely describe how enchanting your cottage and its location has been to us! To say we had an amazing vacation would be quite the understatement. Thank you for everything.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another wonderful fall weekend at Indian Neck Beach. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. This charming cottage is a perfect place to get away from it all, so as to enjoy the bay side of the Cape. We look forward to our next stay!

We really enjoyed this cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent nearly a week in mid April here at the cottage and fell in love with it. This is a perfect time to go to the Cape if you are looking for the quiet side of Cape Cod. The cottage itself is very clean, comfortable and literally steps to the beach. Fantastic sunsets mixed with long walks on the beach. The CCRT is just miles away if you are a bike rider.

Highly recommended!

We love the place and we keep coming back! Justina provides a clean, bright, comfortable space to stay, and the beach can't be beat! Communication with Justina is timely and she is very friendly! We highly recommend it.

Our Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed two Summers in a row in this charming cottage! We love it. It's only steps from a beautiful bay side beach. The beach is never crowded, is great for swimming, has wonderful little tidal pools and backs up to a marshy creek- perfect for little explorers.

The location is terrific, tucked away at the end of a private road in a peaceful neighborhood surrounded by protected marsh. Great for morning walks/jogs.

The cottage itself is perfectly appointed and spotlessly clean. A perfect place to wind down after a long day in the sun. We love to cook, and kitchen has everything you'll need to create a nice meal (we recommend Hatch's Fish Market! Fresh, local, and yum!).

Lastly, the owner is a dream to work with- so gracious and accommodating. Looking forward to staying here again next Summer. Can't wait!

Fabulous beach cottage - excellent family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The charming cottage is beautifully decorated and well-appointed: simple, uncluttered, well-cared-for. The real draw, however, is the location in the small cottage community just steps from a beautiful bay beach. The huge tides make for a changing beach scene, and the kids just love to hunt for hermit crabs and fish in the little backwater; the water is warm enough to enjoy swimming in; and every year we seem to meet wonderful people -- who return repeatedly, forming a great community. Totally relaxing, while having lots to do -- the perfect vacation.

Perfect Cottage for a Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cottage 9/13-20/2014. We have a small 1yr old daughter and we had such a fabulous time! The cottage is newly updated and very open with beautiful vaulted ceilings. The twin bedroom served perfectly as a "nursery" for the baby and the larger Queen bedroom was perfect for my husband and I. The beach is literally 100ft from the cottage and waking up and having coffee overlooking the bay was awesome. It was also nice to just leave your stuff on the beach and pop back to the cottage while the baby napped or to have lunch. I loved this vacation and this cottage so much I'm already trying to book it for next year!
