A classic, rustic Cape House overlooking Blackfish Creek in a quiet, charming neighborhood. The sunroom is ideal for birdwatching (hummingbirds galore) and beautiful, private relaxation. A mile from LeCount Beach and near other National Seashore Ocean beaches and freshwater kettle ponds. Walk (or bike) to the head of the Cape Cod Rail Trail, PB Boulangerie, and General Store.

The space

A cozy cottage perfect for a quiet getaway. Downstairs you'll find the master bedroom and bathroom, kitchen, and living room. The large, fully enclosed sunroom overlooking the marsh is the perfect place for a leisurely meal and birdwatching. Three smaller bedrooms are upstairs. The smallest bedroom (the Bee Room) does not have an electric outlet in it. The kitchen is equipped with oven and range, a toaster, and a coffeemaker. There's plenty of dish- and glassware available, and a full complement of pots and pans, if you like to cook (and a handy herb garden on the back porch). Outdoor grill. The house has wifi and a TV. Outdoor shower with views of the marsh; indoor shower has no view (and no tub). Box fans for windows. Beach chairs and umbrella available for use. Washer/dryer in house. Bring your own linens (towels and sheets) or rent from the Furies (URL HIDDEN)

Guest access

No direct water access from house or property--you can look, but you can't touch! Wellfleet town beaches and ponds require a permit, which you can acquire with proof of rental. (Some town beaches do allow one-day passes.) Many beautiful natural attractions nearby, from Great Island hikes to the Wildlife Sanctuary and National Seashore headquarters. Restaurants, galleries, and the pier are a short drive away in Wellfleet Center.

This cottage was a treasure of an antique, spartanly clean, thoughtfully updated without any tasteless upgrades. It's perfect for 4 adults. We were a party of 4 girls who loved all the thoughtful amenities like the board games which we played into the night. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom newly updated. There is a lovely enclosed porch with a view of the marshes and opportunities for bird watching. Note that there is no microwave or fireplace. Martha communicated seamlessly with check in and check out procedures and we had no problems with her swift communication. We will come back next year!

Sean and Martha's place is simply wonderful. It is so very obvious that they have invested a great deal of effort in making it feel like home and yet be so very Cape Cod. If you are planning to stay in the Wellfleet area, this house should be at the top of your list. Worth special mention is the three-season room off the back of the house. Our visit in October saw several beautiful days and one with the remnants of Hurricane Nate. Even on the rainy day, we were able to sit "outside" under cover with the windows open in the back room. It is absolutely perfect for reading, watching wild turkey's wander through, and socializing with friends.

A lovely, comfortable cottage off the beaten track. We felt it to be great value for the price.

This was a wonderful stay in Wellfleet. The cottage is super cute and perfect for a stay on the Cape. Sean and Martha are delightful and made sure everything was perfect. The cottage is fully equipped for vacation, including a well outfitted kitchen for cooking, comfortable beds and even some board games. The location is convenient to beaches, restaurants and some small shops. Quiet area with a great view of a salt marsh.
