Wonderful - Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The property was quaint, well appointed, and well situated for easy access to local activities. The host was was very accommodating and warm, and thought of everything to make us feel at home. We would definitely recommend to others and will certainly be back! Thanks for a relaxing week.

A beautiful property to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

The owner has created a home which is elegantly furnished and comfortable. The back porch is a dream (for us city dwellers!) & looks out into the pine woods giving a feeling of calm & seclusion—there are other houses along Day Rd but it is so quiet & peaceful you would hardly know it.

Everything is as described, and the house is very clean, well maintained, and well equipped. The owner is responsive and helpful in her replies to questions and is a pleasure to deal with.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone I know—in fact I have rented it several times in the past few years. It's the perfect place for immersing yourself in the seclusion of Wellfleet and the beauty of the Cape. JW

Perfect peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

We have been lucky enough to stay at this beautiful house several times over the last few years and couldn't be happier we found it. We've stayed at other vacation rentals in Wellfleet and Eastham over the years, and while we've had some good experiences and some bad, we never feel as comfortable and at home as we do here. The location is close enough to the ocean but is on a lovely, quiet street well removed from rt 6 noise or beach traffic. The house itself is totally unlike any other rental we've stayed at -- open and airy, immaculately clean, full of light, and simply but elegantly decorated with a real emphasis on the comfort of guests. The garden overflows with flowers, and there's a grill and hammock which we took advantage of daily. The ping pong table was an added bonus! Abigail was the perfect host. She gave us absolute privacy, but was available whenever we needed her or had a question about restaurants or local attractions. We will definitely be staying here again!

Quaint and Peaceful...the BEST stay in Wellfleet

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of homes in Wellfleet and Truro and this is by far our FAVORITE place to stay! Abigail's home is comfy, cozy, clean, and peaceful. No details have been spared with this home - the kitchen is well stocked, there is a gorgeous claw foot bathtub, a big porch for reading and drinking coffee or cocktails...the list goes on! The home is just the right size and is designed for both privacy and hanging out. There is an awesome game room in the basement, complete with a ping pong table! You can take strolls on the quiet, winding roads to the local ponds and the beach. The cottage is located near everything you could ever need. Abigail stays in an adorable cottage off the back of the property and is there if you need her, otherwise, it feels like you are living in your OWN dreamy, Cape Cod escape! We can't wait to come back next summer!

You won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

We've returned to this wonderful Wellfleet house for many summers now. It's a true gem! We love its open layout, comfy furniture and peaceful back porch - everything you need for a relaxing vacation. It's also spotless and lovingly decorated. As you can see from the photos - it's a home, not simply a rental property. Other things we love: it's conveniently located on the ocean side of Rt 6 (avoid traffic to get to ponds, town); has a well-stocked kitchen (quality cookware and knives, serving platters) as well as a large, well-maintained gas grill; AND has low & high tech diversions in case of bad weather (ping pong table, fantastic home media set-up with streaming movies, excellent wifi).

In addition to plenty of fresh and saltwater swimming, our family's Wellfleet traditions include biking the CC Rail Trail, stargazing by a bonfire on Newcomb Hollow Beach (permits are limited - get to Beach Office before it opens), and watching the sun set while chowing down fried clams and oysters at Mac's Shack (Wellfleet Harbor).

The homeowner, Abigail, is terrific- she's responsive to any questions/concerns as well as respectful of your privacy. Moreover, she's super generous with her gardens (flowers and veggies galore) and grounds (when our daughter was young and into building forts in the woods Abigail would set aside lumber for her to use). We have so many lovely memories of vacations spent here. thank you, Abigail, for sharing your home - we look forward to making more memories next summer (Billingsgate Island - here we come!).

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your sweet review and a reminder of the memories. It has been so much fun to have you and your family here for so many summers now. I think we are up to EIGHT! And while I wish your daughter were still into building forts, it has been sweet to hear her various musical instruments interests of late. She is nailing that ukulele. Next summer she can play a few tunes on Billingsgate Island. That would be magical.

Close to beaches both bay and ocean, close to ponds and bike trails, and tennis courts. All the Cape has to offer no matter which direction you go! Provincetown is a 15 minute drive or go 'up-Cape' to a more populated area. Or stay close by and enjoy all that Wellfleet has to offer, including quaint Wellfleet village, complete with town hall and farm stand. Nearby flex bus makes for inexpensive public transportation. Large 52' flat screen TV. Weber Stainless Steel Grill.
