Pleasant room in artist's house in the village of Wellfleet, a pretty New Engalnd fishing village, home of the famous Wellfleet oyster, situated about 12 miles from Provincetown, almost at the end of Cape Cod and the only place on the Eastern Seaboard where you can watch the sun rise and set over water. Our house is within easy walking distance to the center of the village of Wellfleet where there are a number of restaurants, bars, shops, and, of course, the pier (an excellent place to watch the sunset!) and public transportation (The Flexbus). Walkout-basement room, private entrance, half bath (wc) inside, outdoor shower. Picture window facing east, hardwood floors, full size futon bed, refrigerator, coffee maker and electric kettle. Not fancy, but comfortable. Room opens on the back of the house onto secluded grassy yard. We are longtime year-round residents of Wellfeet, with an intimate knowledge of the area and are happy to provide information about area restaurants, entertainment, beaches and ponds, to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Please note that we require a two night minimum when booking either Friday or Saturday.
Wasn't able to stay with Andrea due to a plumbing emergency, but she set me up in a nearby cottage which was beautiful. We had the chance to meet briefly during Oyster Fest and she is a wonderful person. I hope to return to Wellfleet soon.
We arrived too late to met Andrea (we were stuck in bad Boston traffic) but she gave great directions over the phone and via email which were very helpful in the pitch dark. The room was cozy and decorated nicely but very mildew-smelling when we opened the door and there were giant cobwebs in the corners and on the ceilings; spiders included! The bed was just a futon mat on a plywood box, not a real mattress; pretty uncomfortable.
The Check-Inn was organized well. Andrea gave us some helpfull advices with spots in the town. The Appartement is nice, outdoor shower is fun, but you should not feel disturbed by hearing steps on the kitchenfloor/stairs above the basement.
Andrea was very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were as described and worked very well for our 2-night stay. Andrea's house is very conveniently located; a short walk to the center of town which has some nice restaurants and shops and and easy bike ride to the Wellfleet end of the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike bath.
We had a good time. Andrea and her husband were very nice. The room was clean, the outdoor shower was great :) And they have some board games in the room, we loved them! We recommend staying with them.
Own room and bathroom on own floor (basement)
Close to town
Clean, nicely decorated.
Welcoming and easy chk in
Bed not comfortable, thin futon like.
You can hear walking around upstairs and on the steps pretty loud
Andrea was very hospitable, and provided me with great recommendations of things to do in the area. The house and the neighborhood is very charming. Keep in mind that the room is definitely on the rustic side, and some people might be turned off by the outdoor shower concept. However, it was just fine for a one-night stay on a warm weekend. Would recommend. Thanks Andrea!
I am a visual artist. When I can I paint, which is what I love to do, otherwise I work in web and print design. I'm self employed and work out of my house. I'm married, in my early 50's and I have two sons in their early 20's. One of my sons is currently living at home with us. My husband is a photographer. I spent summers in Wellfleet throughout my childhood in the house my grandparents bought in 1933 and where they raised their children. I settled here when my children were very young. I feel very privileged to be able to live in this beautiful place, and very happy to be able to share it with my guests.
