You too can enjoy our classic Old Cape Cod cottage, nestled on the shores of beautiful clean Gull Pond, in the protected Cape Cod National Seashore. Swim and play from your own private beach on the pond, or relax on the deck, with dazzling natural views overlooking the entire pond.

The cottage is directly on the waterfront of Gull Pond, with a beautiful sweeping view, and outdoor stairs down to the shore.

We have two bedrooms - one with a full bed, one with a bunk bed, easily sleeps two adults and two children, or three adults one child. The upper bunk has a low clearance and is limited to children who are 6 years or older, but is not recommended for adults, however there’s a foam mattress if someone in your group needs it. Maximum of four guests, including adults, children, babies, visitors, etc.

There's an outdoor grill on the deck. Even a heated outdoor enclosed shower in summer season. Our cottage reflects Cape Cod as it used to be - a relaxed, informal cozy cottage in the woods and right on the pond. No glitz, no glamour, but everything you need to enjoy the natural beauty of the National Seashore. It's very small, just 380 sf ft of heated space, plus a generous enclosed unheated porch, and a very large panoramic deck overlooking the pond. The bedrooms, living room, bath and kitchen are heated. The outer porch is not heated.

As one review put it, "Charming cabin on the shores of Gull Pond in Wellfleet. Brought me back to the staying in my parents camp on a lake. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it!"

Gull Pond is a clear, spring fed, swimmable, and all natural. Water quality is tested for swimming by the town of Wellfleet at the nearby town beach, plus you have your own private beach just down the stairs from the main deck. Located on a quiet road, along the Cape Cod Bicycle Trail. Relax, read and grill on the large deck and enjoy the delightful afternoon views of Gull Pond.

Walk along protected woodland and ocean trails in the Cape Cod National Seashore. Fresh air. Bicycle. Swim. Relax. This is summer and the Cape as it was meant to be.

Enjoy the networks of protected woodland and ocean trails for walks, hiking, and biking, around the pond, over to the ocean, a real pleasure for walking and hiking, or at the nearby network of trails in the National Seashore. Go down to the ocean beach. You can walk from the beach north towards Provincetown or south towards Eastham and enjoy wild, natural, unspoiled beaches, just as they were when Henry David Thoreau walked them. The National Park Service and Audubon maintain beautiful walks, trails and waterways in the area.

Like to bike? Nearby, you'll find the far end of the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a limited access bicycle path fabulous for serious bicycling and for family outings. Ride through the sweet forests and marshes of Cape Cod on a dedicated bike trail, well maintained. In season bike rentals available at the Idle Times bicycle shop (and maybe off season at their other location - call for details).

Cape Cod is a foodie destination, too. Best in the area include the PB Boulangerie Bistro - we'll introduce you to the owner and see you're treated like returning friends. You can get there from the cottage entirely along the back roads, and it's a beautiful ocean-view drive or bike ride. There's Moby Dick's, a family-friendly fish-in-the-rough restaurant with remarkably fresh, delicious seafood, lobsters, oysters, in season. For local organic produce and fine quality fish, take home to grill, or let them steam the lobsters, there's Hatche's fish and produce in the town center, in season. Of course there's Provincetown for those who want a larger center.

After enjoying the pond, the closest ocean beaches include Newcomb Hollow, LeCount Hollow, White Cliff, and McGuire Landing. You can get a permit for all beaches in Wellfleet at the Wellfleet Pier with a copy of your rental confirmation email. Other beaches within a short drive include the National Seashore beaches.

Spring and Fall are highly recommended - reasonable rates, deep discounts for mid-week bookings, beautiful scenery, comfortable weather, and flexible stays. During the summer, we're more likely to be able to accept your reservation if you book for a full week, starting or ending abutting other guests (see availability calendar), for better coordination with our weekly guests. Other seasons, take your pick on days.

About Our Rates: Our daily rates range from a low season specials to a high of approximately $695 per night, depending on your dates and length of your stay. To get an exact quote, enter the dates for arrival/departure, and the exact price will appear for those dates. The price per night is lower the longer you stay, and lower mid-week and during shoulder seasons. And the closer you are to peak season, the higher the daily rate. The best way to browse rates is to click to view the Calendar, where you can see the base daily for each day. During high season weekend rates may be higher, mid-week rates lower. The minimum number of nights per booking varies by date, too.

High speed internet and wifi are provided, plus a land line. Out here there are no television signals, limited radio reception, and poor cell phone coverage. If you absolutely need video, our first recommendation is bring a book, or browse our library. If you need mobile phone service, please ask your carrier about enabling Wifi Calling, which is now available on many smartphones, and will provide you mobile phone service while connected to our wifi. Otherwise, expect mobile service to be unavailable while at the cottage. Mobile phones work in town. There's a landline if needed.

Tesla EV Owners - Free Tesla Charging is available. The cottage is Solar Powered by SolarCity. If you like what you see and want solar for your home, just ask. We can arrange a referral discount for you.

We ask that you click and read the House Rules tab prior to placing a reservation. Two items to note: We're strictly NO PETS/NO SMOKING, inside and outside. You need to bring your own linens or rent from an agency as described under house rules. Pet owners please do not ask us to make an exception, as many have done. We do not accept pets and there are no exceptions.

If you have a question about the cottage or the area, please drop us a line!

Guest access
You'll have full access to your private cottage, a separate garage building with laundry machines, a beautiful deck with sweeping views of Gull Pond, and your own private beach on the pond.
