About Owner/Manager

My family has lived in Wellfleet since 1972. After working in New York City and Silicon Valley, I returned to the Cape to settle in this beautiful place!

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Owner/Manager chose Wellfleet

The cottage offered a unique chance to own waterfront property. The same family built and owned these cottages for decades. To me, they represent a cherished part of a simpler past.

What makes this cottage unique

It's magical to share this place with herons, waterfowl, and an ever changing beach front landscape. The sights and sounds lift one's moods...

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to take a minute to express how much my family enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. The location was exactly what we expected - so close to the beach we could practically roll out of beach into the sand. My wife particularly favored the location - she is into the beach and appreciated the fact that we only had to walk a few feet, versus a half mile at the last place we stayed at, to get to the water. We appreciated the well-stocked kitchen with lots of pots and pans and cutlery, and everything was in solid working order. The air conditioners worked well. Our two sons also like the cottage. They thought the outside shower was a hoot! We also played a lot of Monopoly together. Thanks for keeping the Monopoly set in the house. Also, the TV and cable worked great, as did the DVD player. My boys brought some Walt Disney DVDs, so that worked out great. We would definitely like to return. Wellfleet is our kind of place!

Amazing Cape Cod vacation at a beautiful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at this property. The cottage and the location met all our expectations and completely matched the pictures and the description on the website. The property was clean and well maintained. The beach area was quiet and beautiful. This is an ideal property for a family with small kids. Our party had 3 adults and 1 child. The beach is very "kid" friendly, as there are no waives and the water is fairly shallow and warm. The water does get deeper at high tides or if you walk out for a bit for those who want to have a good swim. Lots of tide pools for kids to play and always some children on the beach, so your little ones will enjoy it. Other people who stay in the area are either couples or families with children so its very quiet and safe.

The location is perfectly situated on the Cape. Its only 30 min drive to Provincetown, and 30 min drive to Chatham. There are lots of nice seafood restaurants within 10 min drive. There are also many other beach options if you want to explore -- bay beaches, ocean beaches and kettle pond beaches all within 10-15 min driving distance.

Our host was incredibly nice and accommodating. Justina went above and beyond what I expected in accommodating some of our requests at no extra charge to us. I very much appreciated how nice and easily available she was before and during our stay.

I highly recommend this property.

My family and I had the most wonderful time in this simple, quiet cottage on a sandy lane that runs along one of the most amazing bay beaches we have ever seen. I don't know what else to say except wow and thank you!
