Our house is situated on Indian Neck, Fox Island Marsh which is protected by Wellfeet Conservation. It is a quiet area, even in the peak season and just 0.3 miles (3-4 minute walk) from Omaha Beach on the bay. We have beautiful walks in every direction and biking and kayaking all from our front door. We are a short drive to Wellfleet Center and all it's restaurants, galleries and shops. Crystal clear kettle ponds and the ocean beaches of Cape Cod National Seashore are a bike ride away!

The space
We have a fully equipped house for you to enjoy. The kitchen amenities include a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, lobster pot, BBQ and shucking knives. We love grilled oysters on the BBQ!
The living room entertainment center has a 4K TV for enjoying Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO and all your favorite channels. Stream music services throughout the house like Spotify and Apple Music from our SONOS sound system.
Sit in the sun all day or gaze at the stars at night with unobstructed sky views from our decks (glass of wine also recommended!).
We also have an outdoor shower for after the beach and a hammock and a swinging porch bench for a read or a nap!
Kids love making smores on our outdoor chiminea and hanging out in the loft above the screen porch (parental supervision required).
Our uncrowded neighborhood beach on the bay is regulated by the Town Of Wellfleet, for use by residents and our guests. We have carts to wheel down beach chairs, coolers and umbrellas (also provided) without the hassles of driving and parking. Small kids can play for hours in the sand and shallow tidal pools. It's also easy to rent paddle boards and small sailboats nearby on Route 6, that may be launched from the beach. It's a matter of steps to get back to, and return from the house for lunch or more supplies. Be sure come back to the beach before sunset to enjoy the spectacular views!
Burton Baker Beach and spacious Indian Neck Beach are also easily accessible by foot or bike for you to explore.

On the main floor of the house, you'll find the master bedroom with a queen bed and a second bedroom with 2 extra long twins. Upstairs has a full-size bed in the front bedroom and in the rear bedroom, a single with a pull out trundle tucked below.

Guest access
Our whole house is available to our guests.

Other things to note

Location

Wellfleet, Massachusetts, United States

Our favorite haunts include The Bookstore Restaurant, Winslow's Tavern, PJs, C-Shore Restaurant, The French Boulangerie, Mac's Shack and Mac's on the Pier.

We have excellent proximity to the 25 mile Cape Cod Rail Trail and recommend a bike ride to Coastguard Beach for a beach day on the National Seashore or to the town of Orleans for an ice cream at Sparrow's Cafe. Make a stop for a lobster roll right off the trail at Arnold's Clam Shack or Maurice's General Store.

The Wellfleet Drive-in Cinema is also a must-do activity for the family!

Married to Caroline since 1987, with two kids (son lives in Berlin and daughter in Boston). I've been college faculty since 1989 in Boston and Caroline creates mixed media artwork. We really love our Cape Cod home and are now looking to do more and more traveling. Music and Art drive our lives as well as being in the company of kind, friendly and fun-loving people.
