About Leslie Harris
Hi, We are Peter and Leslie .We live in Washington DC but have always dreamed of having a family home on Cape Cod where everyone can gather from 1 to 101!) We love exploring the outer Cape, swimming in the secret ponds, biking the paths in Provincetown and enjoying all that Wellfleet has to offer. We have a big dog who loves running and swimming in the ocean. Ask us about bringing your dog.
Leslie Harris purchased this House in 2014
Why Leslie Harris chose Wellfleet
Peter grew up in Connecticut so he is a New Englander. Leslie was born in Massachusetts but left when she was a child. Discovering the Cape felt like coming home. We knew if we ever bought a vacation home, it would be in Wellfleet. We are learning to be Welfleetians and love its history and small town feel. We found our house in the middle of a snow storm. It was only half built but we both knew it was right.
What makes this House unique
We love the quiet street, and the view from the porch into deep woods of the Herring River Estuary. We see all kinds of wild life in the early evening, once even a coywolf. The great room makes the house special, large enough for everyone to gather and to eat , the porch is where we gather in the early evening and in cooler weather, the gas fireplace warms the whole house. We also like having one master on the ground level. Lets us have lots of guests and still have our private space.

PERFECT Vacation home for larger family stay
Although this home looks beautiful in the pictures, it absolutely exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for our multi generational group of 8. Very open and bright and was bigger than it seemed from the pictures. Artfully decorated with paintings, beautiful framed pictures, interesting decor, a beach town flair and relaxing colors. The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to prepare your own meals (BYO food, of course). Screened in porch was a relaxing spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Or a nap for grandma in the lounge chairs on the deck! Owner provides convenient options- towels and sheets, if needed. Wonderful coffee table books - especially the fancy chickens book! Nice location on the Cape- away from the very touristy areas but still a close drive to your destinations of choice! Loved the biking, kayaking, drive in theater, shopping, winerys, beaching, seal cruising, ice cream, eating seafood, eating seafood, eating seafood! Highly recommend this lovely Welfleet "home away" from our home in CT. Thank you Leslie!
Thanks Susan. I am so glad you enjoyed your vacation at Rose Cottage. It is our happy place and we are thrilled when our guests feel the magic that is Wellfleet. Please come back next year when the newly planted blueberries should be ready to pick! And glad to like my book on fancy chickens🐔.
Beautiful house in a convenient location
The house is comfortably set up and beautifully decorated. It is close to everything Wellfleet on a quiet side street. There is sleeping room for 10, but the house is really ideal for 8 (8 dining room chairs, 8 sets of silverware). We had a power outage the morning of our departure, and hosts were very accommodating with laundry and clean-up. Thank you for a lovely stay!
We loved everything about this house and felt more "at home" here than at any other rental we have had on the Cape. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!! ❤ ❤
Suzanne, So glad that you felt at home at Rose Cottage. You are always welcome back.
Terrific house on the Cape.
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful Cape house. What a great design and location. It was the perfect place for our family and friends to stay during our son's wedding weekend. Well-equipped for 10 people. Plenty of dishes, glasses, and kitchen items. Nicely furnished and decorated. And a bonus were the photos of Rosie the dog smiling.
Beautiful home! Perfectly appointed.
The house was perfect for our family. Comfortable and spacious bedrooms. Beautiful kitchen and baths and very private yard.
The relaxation capitol of the USA
Rose Hill Cottage in Well Fleet was the most refreshing change of pace for our group of four retired teachers from Wisconsin. The house was decorated to reflect the sea and New
England charm. Everything was first rate. We loved all the nooks and crannies to read, rest and relax when we were at the cottage. It was very well equipped and the chefs in the group cooked some great meals in the spacious kitchen.Our favorite spots for gathering were in the spacious dining / living room open complex and the open and screened in porches.
The cottage location was perfect for Well Fleet , its Harbor, and the many beaches of the national sea shore. We did a trip to Provincetown for a whale watching cruise; After a visit to the busy streets and crowds of Provincetown, Rose Hill was an oasis of serenity of peace, quiet and natural beauty . So, we highly recommend Rose Hill cottage for the weary traveler. Leslie Harris was the perfect owner, land lady and artist of the house who helped us through out the process as we ventured through the paper work of VRBO (which was very through). Our only disappointment was that Rosie the wonder dog was not there to greet us. Maybe next time.
Go to Rose Hill for a great New England Experience!!
George and Barbara
