About the property

5 Bedroom Property With Cottage and Studio; Close to Beach and Bike Trail

This antique home is situated on a beautifully landscaped property in a truly superb location. Less than a mile from Lecount Hollow Beach, bordering the National Seashore, and right at the beginning of the Cape Cod Rail Bike Trail, this spot can't be beat for access to all kinds of outdoor activities! Only steps from PB Boulangerie, where you can pick up a decadent breakfast pastry or sit down for an excellent French dinner, and the South Wellfleet hub that has everything to meet your everyday needs - post office, liquor and wine shop, produce stand, and bakery. Not to mention the countless other nearby eateries and outdoor and cultural activities Wellfleet has to offer.

The three bedroom main house sleeps 6 and exudes 1820's charm. The huge screen porch provides a shady retreat on summer afternoons and a peaceful place for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Also on property are the cottage that sleeps 2-4, nestled into the hillside at the top of the wetland, and the studio apartment over the garage that sleeps 2.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the property since it was located almost next to the bike trail, and we did not have to get on Route 6 when we wanted to go to the beach. The place worked well for us [in our 60's], but it was also good for our children in their 20's and 30's plus grandchildren who were 2 and 3. We could separate since there were 3 distinct sleeping areas on the property. All 3 areas had kitchens, and they were well equipped. It was great to have the outdoor shower when we returned from the beach, and the ping-pong table on the porch was a fun diversion. The owners generously supplied us with information about the place before we arrived, and we enjoyed knowing the history of the place. It was definitely the nicest place we have ever rented via VRBO.

Fabulous family compound for family teunion

  • 5 of 5

I reluctantly give it 5 stars only because once the secret of this fabulous family compound gets out, it will be constantly booked and we won't be able to book it for ourselves again.

Kidding aside, this arrangement of rooms with three couples in separate bedrooms in the house. The studio with a kitchennette would be great for parents with a baby. And the cottage with another kitchenette would be great for family of four.

If you like the intrigue of a cozy home built in the 1800's , you'll love this one !

Wonderful grounds with hiding places for kids of all ages. Lots of space on the covered, enclosed deck to play ping pong or cards or puzzles (provided) or just al fresco dining.

The kitchen is extremely equipped, even a huge lobster pot or two. The diningroom seats 10 and we filled it up nightly with wonderful family meals. Even our 98 yr old mom slept in the first floor bedroom and had a fabulous time with all her kids and grandkids and even a new great grandbaby!

Plently of room for all 11 of us!

In addition to life on the compound, there is a bike rental shop around the corner and a great bike/hike trail along the abandoned rail road tracks. Steps away is a fabulous bakery but you'd better get there early because the lines are out the door most of tbe day!

Three ocean beaches are a quick walk or drive away. We loved all the clean, clear ponds mearby. Don't miss those. Plus the Wellfleet Harbor and beaches are nearby too. Great location.

Would highly recommend these accommodations No risk at all, just GO FOR IT , you will not be disappointed!

Welcoming and immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this property couldn't have done more to make this the perfect space for our extended family. The space was immaculately clean. The form required for parking stickers was ready....that has never happened before! Providing bedding spared us a ton of packing. The large porch equipped with a huge ping pong/dining table offered room for all to be together for meals. I wish the owners could have seen our young grandchildren enjoying their nightly freeze tag game. We had a memorable vacation and hope to be back next year.

Wonderful family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a Labor Day vacation with our kids and grandkids. The house was a perfect fit for us. There was privacy and big rooms for all of us to hang out. The location is ideal - just steps from the beginning (or end) of the CC Rail Trail, a 20+ mile long biking, running, strolling trail away from traffic. The beach is 1/2 mile down the road. There are plenty of restaurants, bike rentals in the area. The house was furnished nicely, the WiFi worked well, there were enough plates, silverware, chairs etc for a large family meal. We highly recommend!. Thank you, Jeff and Lauren!

Perfect location, spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family reunion. Super-convenient location, and spacious house with a big screened porch and all the amenities for a summer beach vacation.

Location: Super convenient. Two houses down from the start of the wonderful Cape Cod Bike Trail. A twelve minute walk (or five minute bike ride) from Lecount Hollow Beach, a lovely town beach on the ocean side of the cape. And about thirty yards from PB Boulangerie, a superb French bakery where you can pick up morning croissants and pastries! There's even a little grocery and bike rental in walking distance. And the town of Wellfleet is about a ten-minute drive away.

House: Loved the big screened porch. We ate dinner out there every night and lounged around in comfy chairs playing board games and enjoying the birdsong in the yard. With two additional buildings as well as the main house, there was room for everyone to "do their own thing" as well as be together.

The bedrooms all have working A.C. and good mattresses. The kitchen is well-equipped with good knives, a lobster pot, coffee maker, and other necessities. There's a washer/dryer, gas grill, TVs in each house, and adequate Internet. There are nice personal touches like a small herb garden on the deck and potted plants inside the house. Beach chairs and umbrellas are provided.

The owner is helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this!

Idyllic Family Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most idyllic family vacation at Jeff and Lauren’s home. The space is great for multiple families. The house is lovely with a well-appointed kitchen. Our family lived on the screened in porch which was large enough for communal breakfasts and dinners. The wifi was very good. The yard is great for croquet and bocce we even enjoyed s’mores at the fire pit. You can’t beat the location; right at the end of the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a block from an excellent French bakery, and bike rentals right around the corner. We rented bikes and it was a quick ride to LeConte Hollow beach. We often rode to town or to Long Pond. The only problem was we had to leave.
