Overview

About the property

- 2 BR, 2.5 Baths, 1 sleeping den, 2 decks, outside hot shower Sleeps 6.

'Foote Rest Cottage' - A 10 min walk to miles of ocean beaches/sand dunes, this renovated 1940's Cape, located in the National Seashore sits on a large wooded lot. Large, L-shaped LR/DR area features cathedral ceiling, skylights, knotty pine paneling, ceiling fan, Scandavian wood burning fireplace/stove. Spacious, bright eat-in kitchen w/ table and bar; kitchen and sleeping BR/den open onto sunny deck through sliding glass doors. A second deck overlooks mature forest and a creek flowing through the back of this secluded property. In front, a country road connects to National Seashore Park trails with wildlife and a very rare White CedarTree preserve and Marconi site.

A 1/2 mi walk in the other direction gives you direct access to the Bicycle Rail Trail and General Store/ Post Office. Avoid Rte 6 traffic by taking Ocean View Drive into town, harbor, or glacier ponds for a swim or kayaking. Cottage is only 1/2 hr drive to Provincetown for nightlife and terrific whale watching.

Guests Say: Guests say they like our Foote Rest Cottage because it is private, tranquil, near the ocean, bike path Rail Trail, and General Store -- all within walking distance. Nestled in the National Seashore, it's two decks are private, and sunny. While relaxing on the back deck, one can hear birds chirp and watch wild turkeys fly over the trees, and in July, can eat blueberries from the bushes off the back deck.

The bunk room downstairs allows for a separate area for teenagers to play music while away from earshot of adults. The cottage sits on the original Wireless Road (now private) to the Marconi Station site and one can have their own private walk to the Marconi site and through the rare White Cedar Swamp Trail.

Wonderful way to reconnect with your family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at the Foote Rest Cottage. I have rented many vacation properties in the past but I definitely felt like I was in a "home." I enjoyed reading about the Foote Family and seeing the old photos of the early years from the l940s and the other family memorabilia. Our sons are 25, 22, and 15 and it is not always easy to find something for everyone. The location was fantastic. There is a dirt path that leads to the Marconi site, which overlooks the ocean. Great for watching for seals. And just a 10 minute walk to a great beach so you don't have to drive, unless you have small children. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is just down the road. I enjoyed several lovely bike rides. I loved the fact that this home is tucked away in the woods. It's nice to be able to be outside but out of the sun unlike other beach houses. The location is very quiet at night. A great deck where we enjoyed our meals. I actually preferred not eating out because the deck was so enjoyable. Why pay money to wait in line in a noisy restaurant and not be able to enjoy the outdoors? The outdoor shower was a such a treat and surrounded by woods. The house is very well maintained. Very clean. The town of Wellfleet is charming. The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is a short drive down route 6 and a must if you enjoy nature. Lovely walks, great views, lots of things for kids to see and touch. This is the second time we have stayed in Wellfleet and I would not even consider looking at another house. I hope we will make this a new tradition.

The perfect hideaway for a RELAXING vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Foote Rest almost every year of my life. As I grew older I came to appreciate the location of this quaint little house in the woods. I love the outdoors, quiet and solitude. This is the perfect place to get away with your family. You can spend a week here without getting into your car if you want. Some of my favorite activities while at the Foote Rest include: playing cards with my family, reading on the deck or in the hammock, picking blueberries (they grow behind the house), utilizing the outdoor shower, cooking a tasty dinner with my family, walking to the general store or to the beach to swim and bodysurf in the water, running on the White Cedar Swamp Trail and to the Marconi Site, biking into town (you can avoid Rte 6 all-together), and riding my bike along the rail trail or to the ponds. There are sunfish rentals at Gull Pond, the water is generally warmer than the Atlantic, and the sand is nice and soft. When you find youself this far out on the Cape, you will realize that much of what the Cape has been for the past 100 years is still preserved. It is unusual to find such natural beauty protected on the East Coast nowadays. This is a place where you can take a deep breath, relax, and reconnect with yourself or your family, or just forget about the world. It makes an impression on your heart you will never forget.
