Selkie Landing is on a private road which is a 5 minute stroll to a beautiful Bay beach and a 10 min drive to spectacular Ocean beaches or peaceful lakes & ponds. One bedroom upstairs has a double bed with a twin bed for sleeping three comfortably. There's a sleep sofa downstairs. A Weber grill and lovely picnic table accommodate all your BBQ needs.

The house is a 10 minute drive to Wellfleet center in one direction and Wellfleet Dive-In and Cinemas, with its renowned Flea Market,in the other direction. A mere 20 minute drive to Provincetown offers you tons of galleries, shops, restaurants, ice cream and nightlife. I live a 5 minute drive away for any issues you have or questions that might arise.

About Thomas Janssen

I have been coming to Wellfleet my whole life as a renter and now live here full time in retirement. I am actively involved in the community as a docent at the Historical Society and avid walker, theater-goer and general Cape enthusiast.

Thomas Janssen purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Thomas Janssen chose Indian Neck Heights

This is my favorite area of Wellfleet. The beach is on the bayside, which means it's virtually a private beach for the people who live nearby - it's a hidden gem. Wake up, grab your stuff and walk 5min to the beach and just camp out in the most peaceful place on earth.

Cozy cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Family of 3 plus small dog enjoyed a long early season weekend on the cape. The location was perfect to explore local beaches, p-town, and even enjoy a movie at the well fleet drive-in. Short walk to the beach in a quite neighborhood. Tom was a very accomodating host. We would stay there again perfect size and location for the price.

Great deal, great location, great host

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay this weekend at Selkie Landing. The cottage was clean and comfortable, and Tom was very responsive and friendly when we needed anything. As an asthmatic, I am always most concerned about air quality; we brought an air purifier along and I was glad because the cottage was a bit musty at first, but it cleared out so quickly with the windows open that I think we’d have been fine without the air purifier. The location was perfect: tucked away on a wonderfully quiet little street, but very convenient to beaches and the town. The beds were very comfortable, and it was so nice to be surrounded by windows on all four sides upstairs. Although it was cool and rainy on Sunday and Monday of our three-day weekend, we had a great time reading and writing in the cozy cottage, exploring Wellfleet and Provincetown, and going to the Wellfleet drive-in (which is still open in the rain!). We hope to return to the cottage in the future.

Perfect couple retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Cape many times and have stayed in many places in Wellfleet including this area.

This cabin was perfect for us. We loved that it was two floors. We cooked in almost every night and ate outside every breakfast and dinner.

The location is quiet and yet accessible to ocean beaches by car, bay beaches on foot, and convenient short drive or bike ride into the center of Wellfleet and Great Pond.

Loved our time there and will probably rent again when we return to the Cape.

Excellent, cool place.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week with my wife, daughter, and small dog. We had a great time. Cottage is small but worked well for us. We never felt crowded. Nice neighborhood, bay beaches are an easy walk. Rest of Wellfleet is a short drive.

Great weekend retreat.

The cottage was just as described, perfect for a couple and our dog. Wellfleet has so much to offer, even on a rainy day. Would definitely go for a weekend again!
