It comprises two small bedrooms - one with a full-size bed and the other with two twin beds - and a full bath. The porch, adjacent to the small living room, offers beautiful views of nature. The kitchen (not an eat in kitchen) includes a refrigerator, sink, stove (stovetop burners only, no oven) with a microwave, and large toaster oven located on the porch.

Vacation Rental Reviews by

A beautiful retreat that truly has it all!

         
Review by James W.
This home is a treasure on the National Seashore. Unlike the suburban cookie cutters that have popped up along the Cape, it has the authentic character of a classic Cape cottage. We loved the antiques and the beautiful paintings of local lighthouses on the walls.The location is unbelievable—the private dock on the pond was the perfect reading spot, and the ocean is only a ten-minute walk away. We usually had the beach to ourselves, as it's a few miles from the crowded public areas down the road.The cottage is nestled in the forest preserve with only a few neighbors, making it a serene retreat with spectacular birdwatching and stargazing opportunities.On rainy days, we enjoyed browsing the shelf of books on local Wellfleet history, as well as playing board games and cards on the glassed-in porch. It's almost impossible to find places like this left on the Cape, and we are so excited to make it an annual tradition!
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
James, this was wonderful to read about your experience on The Cape! Thank you for taking the time to write this and we hope to see you again!

Unsuitable rental

         
Review by Linda G.
Too much historical and odd items to feel comfortable especially the huge portrait over the fireplace. Twin beds very uncomfortable. Very isolated did not expect a mile long sand road for two way traffic or long isolated driveway. Directions difficult to find place. So many mosquitoes we had to run from car to cottage. Honestly it felt haunted.
