About Sarah A. Queen

I have been welcoming ti-generational families for many years to Blackfish Cottage, my little piece of paradise located in a very special hollow of Old Wellfleet abutting Fox Mars Conservation lands and water. Breathtakingly beautiful views and an immaculate house make for a memorable stay.

Sarah A. Queen purchased this house in 1999

Why Sarah A. Queen chose Wellfleet

I chose to buy this property because you walk out the front door to one of the most tranquil and panoramic vistas on Cape Cod. Blackfish Cottage abuts Fox Island Conservation land. The largest public conservation property on the Outer Cape, it stretches from Baker Road to Pilgrim Spring Road and provides access to trails leading to marsh and harbor views. The jewel in the crown of these views is the splendid vista from Whale Bone Point of Fox Island Marsh and Blackfish Creek. The various linked trails allow the hiker to choose walks of many different distances and durations.

What makes this house unique

This house is sited on a dead end country road a few minutes walk to bayside ocean and public landing to put in your kayak. Escape the incessant summer traffic on Cape Cod in this tranquil setting yet quick access to everywhere you want to get to in Wellfleet: ocean side and bay side beaches, head of the bike trail, center of town and great restaurants. Fireplace living room makes it a great retreat for spring and fall weekends as well!

Stayed at the cottage over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a great time. It is a classic Cape house and is well furnished and stocked. The cottage is minutes away from beautiful hiking trails along the marsh and bay. It is secluded, yet very close to Wellfleet town with a big back yard. Sarah, the owner is extremely nice and accommodating.

Wonderful home and a wonderful town!

  • 5 of 5

my family and I used to have a home in Wellfleet but haven't been there in several years. We decided to have a reunion during oyster fest weekend. This home was perfect for all of our needs. Beautifully kept, lots of room for all of us in a wonderful setting. The owner was very concerned that we have an excellent stay, gave us very clear instructions and checked-in a few times to make sure we were happy. Very clean, bright and airy rooms. We felt like we were home in Wellfleet again. Would recommend it highly for anybody wanting a great Cape Cod experience.

Beautiful home, spacious and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! This home was not only large enough to accommodate folks while they were getting ready for our wedding, it was filled with natural light and located very close to our venue! We truly enjoyed staying here and being able to unwind before and after the wedding! Sarah was a great host and made sure we were comfortable! We loved staying here!
