A great cozy cape cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage- it was just perfect for our family of 4. The setting is very quiet at night except for the wildlife noises. We spent most of our daytime enjoying the beautiful beaches and evening time at the great restaurants. During the rest of our downtime did not miss having a tv - we played clue which we haven't done in ages and listened to cds and read. The outdoor shower was great - we loved it! We will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Chris's cottage. It was clean, maintained well, and stocked with everything one could possibly need for a week at the beach. We especially loved the outdoor shower and the quiet, serene nature of the neighborhood. Looking forward to returning!

Charming and cozy as advertised

  • 4 of 5

One week at this cottage in late June, 2016. The owner is very rapidly responsive to messages sent through VRBO.

The description is precisely correct. As senior citizens I don't think we would ever consider sharing this house with 3 others (and one bathroom!) but

I believe some families might. The layout of the house is very convenient. The open kitchen, dining, living space is attractive and spacious given the size of the house. The extras, blankets etc. for the beach are very thoughtful. Note that the bedrooms are very small in total space (thus, cozy).

Some of the points in the description that I think are particularly to be noted are that the kitchen is extremely well equipped for a vacation spot; there is quite a lot of Cape Cod specific literature on the shelves; the heating, fireplace and air conditioning would seem to be at least adequate for this size house (we needed none of them but appreciated and did use the overhead fan in the living room). The electronic stuff that is noted is also, I'm sure, of interest to many. WiFi was essential for us but that's all and we would never regret the absence of a television on a vacation.

Read also the owner's website at cozycapecottagedotcom Note that towels, sheets etc. are not provided. Owner Chris' website points you directly to the very convenient rental facility called the Furies from whom you can order everything (and they deliver and pick up).

The house is in the woods but two minutes from the highway. It is dead silent all around or perhaps sometimes another cabin nearby is occupied and there may be some voices.

Reflecting one of my own serious concerns on a vacation, this house is (and it is pointed out on the website) less than 5 minutes from PB Boulangerie, a French bakery, open at 7 AM, 7 days a week, year round, that will supply you with excellent brioches, croissants, pastries, bread etc. I was there at 7:05 every morning that we were in Wellfleet.

Owner's Response: Steve, so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Cozy Cottage. We appreciate when guests notice the things we love most about our little cottage: the peaceful area, the well stocked kitchen, the collection of books with a local connection, and yes perhaps most importantly, the proximity to the pastries at PB Boulangerie! Hope to have you stay with us again. - Chris

" Mom , can we come back here every Summer !"

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our 2 week stay at the Cozy Cottage ! It is a lovely property , very well- cared for and in a fantastic location : 10 minute walk to the water and less than ten minutes into town by car . The high ceilings and screened in porch add a sense of space : the deck and outdoors shower are wonderful . We have been to Wellfleet many tines and have rented multiple properties : Cozy Cottage has all that we would consider the quintessential cottages experience and more ! Thanks a million , Chris !
