About the property

Situated on Mayo Beach in Wellfleet, MA, this two bedroom, brick cottage is a Cape Cod classic. The perfect blend of old and new, this cottage is fully equipped throughout including wireless internet, free national long distance, hardwood floors, fireplace, antiques and original artwork. It is literally steps away from the bay, down the road from a full playground which includes tennis and basketball courts, and a short walk to Wellfleet Harbor and the center of town. If location is everything then this spot is perfect. You are literally 15 minutes from Provincetown and Orleans by car and all the entertainment and restaurants that these artist's colonies have to offer. Whether you want the tranquility of endless hours on the beach or a little excitement on a rainy day, it is all seconds or minutes away.

About Rosemary Milliman

I have always love the water. I had a dream of owning a property on the water. This dream became a reality in 2000. This photo is a photo of me at 7 years old! I'm on the right.

Rosemary Milliman purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Rosemary Milliman chose Wellfleet

Renters say that my cottage is so cozy and that I've thought of everything. I consider people who rent as extended friends. Many renters have become friends.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is close to everything. If you don't want to travel to the beach .....you're home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were pleasantly surprised by the level of detail in the cottage. You've obviously thought of everything we might need! This is not your typical "beach cottage". It's much more like a home away from home on the beach. Our two children ages 4 and 6 had such a wonderful time in the bay beach. The playground was an added bonus right down the street. We had lovely weather but even when it rained we didn't mind because the cottage is so cozy. We lit the fireplace and enjoyed the lovely surroundings. It was great to grill outside. Having the choice of a gas grill or charcoal was super. Sometimes we had both going. We will definitely be back!

Thanks for opening your lovely cottage to us!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had all the amnetities we were looking for and the outdoor shower was a great addition! We loved that we had an herb garden plus anything you could think of that was needed to cook in the kitchen was provided. The location is perfect with easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants and the cottage is right across the street from the beach!

Awesome Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is fantastic, the pictures don't do it justice. It is a quaint, beach cottage that always feels like you are right at home. It was well stocked with everything you need. The area is great and I will be back next year. I highly recommend it!

cozy well equipt cottage

  • 4 of 5

It was a snowy weekend but the cottage was clean, cozy and welcoming. So nice to have a fireplace to relax by in the evening and being so close to the water was great. My daughter and I found the kitchen to be very well appointed. We needed nothing. Thank you Rosemary you thought of everything and working with you was a pleasure from start to finish.

Sweet cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage. Our family of four was cozy and comfortable, and enjoyed the quietude of the place. The kitchen was very well stocked - great knives :) - which made us feel right at home. It was a chilly and windy week, so although we ventured into the warm(er) water of the bay, most of our adventures were inland (biking) and on the water (canoeing and whale watching). The whale watching is not to be missed! And of course, the fish n chips. Mmmm.

Rosemary's place is a lovely home base. She returned our deposit within a few days and is very responsive.

Enjoy your vacation!

Very cozy cottage in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Location, location! This was our 2nd year in the Beach Rose Cottage and was as enjoyable as our previous year. Although the sq. footage is small, the owner has made the most of it. All amenities are there. Very tastefully decorated, very clean and extremely well kept, this Cape Cod cottage is great. We like to cook and relax and walk the beach, it was perfect for all. Walk to restaurants, fish market, pier and into town. All very easy. Highly recommend!!
