About this listing
Come visit us in the charming seaside village of Wellfleet. This artists 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 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.
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!
The local Flexbus and Plymouth and Brockton both stop a 10 minute walk from my house. If your traveling by public transportation, I recommend that taking a boat form Boston to Provincetown and taking the bus to Wellfleet.
We had a great time on our stay! We arrived late and Andrea was very accommodating; the room was very inviting after a long drive! Charming decor, comfortable bed, very quiet, and close to everything in town. While we didn't spend enough time there to use them, the fridge and coffee apparatus was a great convenience. We especially loved the outdoor shower! Will definitely be back for our next outer cape venture :)
Kevin and Andrea were great hosts. Kevin gave us suggestions for dining that night and breakfast in the morning. The room was as advertised. We could walk to the breakfast place down the road. We decided to drive to the harbor for dinner for convenience. This was a Great location for us to use since we were biking the Cape Cod Rail Trail.
We just had an overnight stay in Andreas artsy basement room.. The mattress is especially firm but we slept fine after a night of dining and theatre. Neighborhood is quiet and Andrea was there to greet us .
Andrea welcomed us for one night. The room was pleasant and big enough. Andrea gave us good advices about the area. The outdoor shower was great and refreshing.
The room was wonderful. The private backyard setting with a table and chairs was perfect for a picnic and greatly appreciated. the outdoor shower was fun! The setting was so private and very peaceful. A wonderful space. Also very near the town and habor area. I would highly recommend it.
Andrea was great. Her listing offers a private entrance and an outdoor shower! We had a wonderful stay.
We stayed at Andrea's house for two nights last weekend, and had a great time. The room is completely separate from the rest of the house, so it feels like you are in a private cabin. The outdoor shower was fun, and the room was clean.
About the Host, 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.
