Come and enjoy our family vacation home! A serene escape perched above the salt marsh - with incredible views of Cape Cod Bay from every room in the house, and a huge 1,000 square foot outdoor deck. Sleeps eight comfortably. And just a 10-minute drive to ocean beaches and downtown Wellfleet.
We've rented out our house for many years but this is our first season on VRBO (sorry, that's why no reviews yet!) .
As approach the house by car, you're greeted with sweeping views across Silver Spring Marsh and the bay. You enter the house by boardwalk, and when you open the door - you are officially on vacation!
You enter the bright, enormous open-concept living and dining area - featuring a high cathedral ceiling and 3 sliding glass doors with soul-cleansing views over the marsh and bay. It's the perfect place to relax with family and friend after a day at the beach. and there's a fireplace if it gets chilly! The living room opens onto the huge wrap-around deck, where we recommend you enjoy a glass of chardonnay and watch the sun set.
The deck also has a BBQ for grilling. There is high-speed WiFi throughout the house, and a large flat screen tv and entertainment center in the living room.
The four bedrooms are off of this central ''Great Room'': two first floor bedrooms with queen size beds (and each with a full bathroom). The two upstairs bedrooms have two twin beds in each room. One of these bedrooms is ''loft style'', meaning it is somewhat open to the great room downstairs - with no door. This is usually where (at least some of) the kids sleep! The two upstair bedrooms share a full bathroom. There is also an outdoor shower - great for cleaning off after hitting the beach!
There is also an additional ''game room'' on the garden level, with a fireplace and couch. The basement features a washer and dryer - as well as some ''beach toys'', like boogie boards and sand toys. We're working on getting some kayaks soon! Stay tuned!
The architectural style of the house is midcentury modern, blending well with the surrounding landscape - but the house interior offers incredible natural sunlight and openness. The street is a quiet cul-de-sac where the breeze and the birds are heard more than cars.
It's a great place to... B R E A T H E... and enjoy the natural beauty of Cape Cod.
Kids love this house (mine do!), but it has not been explicitly 'kid-proofed.' If you have little ones, you'll need to watch them around the open stairwell inside and the back deck. Therefore the primary adult needs to be at least 25 years of age.
Our family loves to watch the wildlife from the deck - the seagulls, great herons, and foxes on the marsh (and very occasionally, a great horned owl!). You can explore the salt marsh immediately outside the house - and see fiddler and horseshoe crabs - which is always changing due to the tides. We often take sunset strolls to the Lieutenant Island bridge (1/2 mile), and the gentle bay beaches further out on the island are great for little explorers. The Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path is just 1 mile away.
Marconi Beach is a 5 minute car ride. The other ocean beaches, and downtown Wellfleet and its wonderful art galleries and restaurants, are a 10 minute drive.
You are asked to kindly bring your own bed linens and bath towels. No smoking please inside the house.
This home has been our family ''escape'' for nearly 30 years; a place of treasured memories. We hope it can be the same for your family!+ More
