Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Amy's by the Sea' A 10 min walk to miles of ocean beaches/sand dunes, this renovated 1940's Cape-style cottage, located in the National Seashore sits on a 2+ acre wooded lot.

Open floor plan with living and dining area and open to knotty pine ceiling. Bright new kitchen with large A-frame glass overlooking the spacious deck. Surrounded by National Park, Amy's by the Sea is an easy walk to the ocean beach via paved road for bicycles/strollers or via the 'back' trail to the bluffs overlooking the ocean, sand dunes and miles of quiet beauty. The back trail to the ocean also connects to the very rare White CedarTrail 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.

About Jackie Clark

'Amy's by-the-Sea' has been in view of our family summer home since 1940 when my grandmother Amy Foote and my grandfather Bill, camped on this property in 1917. It was first built by the Forbes family and in 1984 was sold and then sold again in 2004. Finally, in 2011, my brother and sisters and I got together and bought 'Amy's' which has been a large part of our summer lives for over 60 years.

Jackie Clark purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jackie Clark chose Wellfleet

My siblings and I have been coming to this location since we were young children. Our father had been coming since he was 8 years old and used to watch the German glider pilots fly gliders off of the dunes of Maguire Landing. We were 'hooked' on the area from an early age just like our father was.

What makes this cottage unique

We all love the peace, relaxation and nature of the area -- it engergizes us! The air is clean, the birds sing every morning, the berries are in bloom in mid-summer and you can hear the ocean at night. The moon and stars are spectacular and some of us have seen the Northern Lights from the ocean dunes.

Best location, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Amy's Cottage for the first time this July. The location couldn't have been better for everything we like to do. We could easily walk (or bike) to a terrific beach on the National Seashore and easily walk to the bike trail (there is a bike rental place right there where we were able to painlessly rent bikes for the week). It was also a short drive to the center of town and all the local ponds. The cottage is not fancy, but is comfortable and private with everything we needed to our stay. I highly recommend the cottage and look forward to coming back!

A Charming Cottage Near the Cape Cod National Sea Shore

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed cottage afforded us a location just minutes from a spectacular Wellfleet beach, minutes from the bike trail and minutes from one of the best French bakeries this side of Paris. Every morning we would walk to the Boulangerie, buy our croissants, baggettes and trompziennes then walk back to the cottage to enjoy breakfast on the deck. The kitchen is modern and clean, the living room and eating area are cozy and the beds are comfortable. Be sure to take a short drive to the Marconi Station and Atlantic White Cedar Swamp an enchanted nature walk through a planked walk preserve. It's worth the 15 minute journey. Then go up to the Marconi station to see where international WiFi originated thanks to Guglielmo Marconi! Nearby Wellfleet Center offers restaurants, shops and a fish market. If you didn't bring your bicycles, there is a rental shop nearby. Amys by the Seas offered an ideal Cape Cod vacation for the four of us.

Short but sweet visit

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for 4 nights, making last minute plans in August! Just as we expected for a Cape cottage. Great location. Easy to seaside beaches and lakes. House has adequately equipped kitchen. We brought our own games but didn't need them as the weather was perfect and the kids were wiped out at night. Loved the outdoor shower.

I would caution families with toddlers or pre-schoolers as it is on a main road. But our kids are older and it wasn't a concern. The road noise was not a problem. Very close to bike path.

The owner was very easy to communicate with both in advance and during our stay. Very happy with the experience and would recommend this cottage and any others they own.
