Great place to stay near Wellfleet! Very clean home with everything you could need. My friends and I were very impressed with the place and would definitely stay there again.

We loved staying at Megan's place and we'd recommend it to friends and family. It is close to the beach & we enjoyed the short bike ride into town. Her artwork is an inspiring and warm influence to the feeling of "home" in her house. We cooked every night and the kitchen is well stocked with everything a gourmet cook might require. The washer and dyer are nearer and work well, the screened back porch is a lovely touch to enjoy dinnertime without the distraction of the bugs. We stayed during a hot and muggy time in August and there was always ample breeze and freshness throughout the house. Lovely home, lovely hostess !!!

The neighborhood was perfect: from every window we looked at lovely plantings and a wooded area and at the same time we were close to beautiful beaches and ponds. The house itself was lovely. And the screened in porch was a great place to eat. We also appreciated Megan's invitation to pick herbs and cukes from her garden. Megan gave us good advice about where to buy fish and produce in town and was welcoming in every way possible.

After years of owning a beautiful home in Wellfleet, renting was a transition for me and my family. Luckily, we felt so welcome in Megan's home and had a wonderful stay. She was gracious and helpful and I always felt like she was truly happy to have us as guests. I appreciated her offer to get food staples into the house prior to our arrival and for having the house ready with beds made up etc. Megan had nice linens, beach and bath towels ready for us along with beach chairs etc. It was also a relief to have AC in the bedrooms on a few very hot nights. We loved having the screened in porch where our boys ate breakfast and played board games. I would love to rent again next year and feel so relaxed again in Wellfleet, our beloved second home. I loved living with her original art works all over the house - particularly the whimsical pieces in the room where my younger son slept.

Fantastic space in a nice quiet neighborhood far enough from the main road to eliminate most of the road noise. House is wonderfully laid out with all the amenities one would need. We didn't get to meet Megan, but all the instructions were very clear and welcoming. Would certainly stay again.

Megan was a wonderful host, and we absolutely loved her gorgeous house! It was perfect for five people, and beautifully decorated with a lot of Megan's own art work. The pictures really don't do it justice! It's such a lovely home, and surrounded by beautiful woods that you can view from the porch. We especially appreciated how thoughtful Megan was about furnishing the house - books to read, extra towels and toiletries, and a well-stocked kitchen, which made it very easy for us to cook while we were there. Highly recommended for a family looking for a peaceful and beautiful spot to relax in!

Megan was a wonderful host during our stay of the holiday weekend! The house was accurate with the posting, and truly beautiful! The location was close to everything, and we found it to be very accommodating in all aspects! We will definitely be back!
