About this listing
Come visit the charming seaside village of Wellfleet. This artist's house, a short walk from the harbor and the center of town, has a cozy, private room with it's own entrance and a quiet back yard off the street.
Pleasant room in artist's house in the village of Wellfleet, a pretty New England 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 bed with memory foam mattress, 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 Wellfleet, 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.
Interaction with guests
Since the guest room has it's own entrance, I rarely see my guests beyond greeting them when they arrive. (I do like it when they come say goodbye!) I am home much of the time since I work from my studio, and I'm happy to chat and to answer questions and offer recommendations, if desired. I leave that up to my guests!

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.
