Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms (Sleeps 6), 2 Baths, Wonderful Kitchen -all with Fantastic Ocean View

If ocean views, breezes and sounds are what you love... stay here. The ocean is omnipresent. Every room has an incredible view. An abundance of windows gives the cottage a light and airy feel. Cooking in the kitchen, reading on the deck(s) or even working in the office is a tranquil pleasure with the waves in the distance.

A short walk down the path to one of the most beautiful private Beaches on Cape Cod, you're also right across the street from incredible hiking trails through the National Seashore Park. Nestled among the scrub pines and rose bushes, the house sits high on the dunes overlooking the ocean.

The house consists of a master bedroom with king-size bed, a office bedroom with two twin beds, and a guest bedroom with a queen-size bed (sleeps 6). There are two full bathrooms (one with a lovely cast iron soaking tub). There's a full two-sink kitchen with professional-grade range, living room, dining area (all with expansive 180% ocean views), large deck, enclosed outdoor shower (with view), 2nd floor deck, front porch and lovely yard with picnic area - all with sweeping views.

Wake up to the sunrise over the water and have dinner watching the sunset over the forest! Watch whales breaching from the deck as you eat and let the sound of the waves put you to sleep! Ride a bike to the Wellfleet General store or PB Boulangerie to get fresh baked goods and produce, then work of those calories boogie boarding, surfing or hiking! Have an afternoon massage on the private deck overlooking the ocean or just take a nap on the beach! And a short hike through the woods takes you to one of Wellfleet's famous fresh water kettle ponds for a refreshing dip before dinner!

About The Owner

I am an engineer who adores the ocean and anything nautical. This home exemplifies what I love: a simple, quiet existence with a view of the sea. Whether it's a sunny summer day, or a raging Nor'easter, this is where I want to be.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Wellfleet

I intend to retire in this house and, until I can afford that, I'm renting it out so that others can enjoy this incredible seaside cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is newly rebuilt in the spirit of the original cottage that was first built in 1905 by Captain Lorenzo Baker, just to the south at a site near the Marconi wireless experiments, and was moved here a few months later, becoming the first home on Ocean View Drive. This little spot has seen a lot over the years.

It is located overlooking a hollow to the sea, and the panoramic view of the ocean is breathtaking. One can hear and see the shore break, as well as whales playing as they migrate. At night the quiet of the woods is calming, and starry nights are serene. This location is very special.

Wonderul

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house for two weeks, and they were fantastic. I am still missing the view from the deck. My kids loved their upstairs bedroom nooks. The half bath between the two bedrooms worked perfectly for us.

The walk down to the beach was so convenient. We never even bought a beach pass. Can't wait for next year!

Best one ever!

  • 5 of 5

"Best one ever!" is what we exclaimed as we first walked into this beautiful home. Our family has been coming to the cape for many years, and this rental was absolutely our most breathtaking stay. We thoroughly appreciated the amazing views from almost every spot in the house as we had some chilly April days during our visit. You can't quite beat curling up with a good book while looking out over one of Cape Cod's most beautiful beaches. The beach access was obviously another highlight...many walks on the beach were enjoyed!

The house was very well cared for, extremely clean and thoughtfully appointed...we were very comfortable here. It was also a pleasure to deal with the owner. Scott was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation.

We would highly recommend this property and hope to return one day ourselves! It is the perfect spot to enjoy all that the Cape has to offer.
