Charming, rustic efficiency cottage in bucolic South Wellfleet woods, next to my house, view (through the woods) of Blackfish Creek tidal marsh. 2 minute walk to bus lines, So. Wellfleet General Store, and a fantastic French bistro and bakery; 2 minute bike ride to beautiful Cape Cod Rail Trail; 1 mile from Lecount's Hollow ocean beach, and a short car, bus or bike ride (3.2 miles) to the town of Wellfleet. Cottage has 2 twin beds; kitchenette w/2-burner stove, convection oven, microwave & coffee maker. Linens, towels (including beach towels!), cooking & eating utensils are furnished. Small bathroom w/stall shower, also may use outdoor shower on main house. Available by the weekend, week, month or season.
Note that a washer and dryer are available (in my house) for rentals of two weeks or more; however, if a "wardrobe malfunction" should arise, I'm more than happy to make an exception to that rule-just let me know.
Common sense and courtesy about sums up the "rules of the house." Smoking is permitted out of doors only, there's a sea-clam shell which makes for a perfect ash tray (please,, no butts on the ground). Make sure no "live ones" end up in the trash. I prefer not to have pets on the premises, other than service animals (i.e. seeing-eye dogs).
I have no desire to regulate private behavior. However, the presence, use and/or sale of hard drugs is strictly forbidden on my property.
By all means enjoy yourself-that's why you're here. Reasonable consideration of my neighbors, however, is desirable-I have to live with them after you've gone.
Had a great time in this cozy cabin. John is delightful and helpful and we were near Mac's Shack in Wellfleet, which is Mecca for oyster lovers.
John was there when we arrived, he gave us many usefull informations about bicycles and buses. Even with bad weather we were happy in the little cottage which was clean and had everything we needed. The only problem is to be without car in Cape Cod, the island is not equipated for hikers. If there were bicycles included in Johns cottage it would have been marvelous, but it was nevertheless very nice at Johns place!
La cabane de John était vraiment sympa, très bien équipée nous avions tous le nécessaire un petit arbre de paix.
The Cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs! John was extremely accommodating and attentive in the weeks leading up to our reservation, and thoughtfully made sure that every detail was in order. The cottage is small, with just enough room for two guests. I wouldn't say it's the place that you choose to spend all of your time lounging in while on the Cape, but then again, why would you do that when you have such beautiful beaches and towns to explore? It does, however, make an excellent place to come home to for the night. We would definitely return on our next trip.
I stayed at John's cabin in Wellfleet with my girlfriend over Labor Day weekend. John was very welcoming and the cabin was just as described. He met us when we arrived, gave us all of the ins and outs and a few suggestions of things to do and then left us to our ourselves. He was very cordial and a good host.
This really couldn't have been a more perfect place for my wife and I to stay for a short get away. John was a great host, full of information of the area, a pleasure to talk to, and volunteering to help us out when our car had battery issues before we had even arrived! The cottage was very nice and clean, and as other reviews have said, John thought of every little thing imaginable. The kitchen area was fully stocked with all that is needed to prepare a meal, and he even had fresh ground organic coffee, which my wife just loved! Beach chairs and towels were also provided. Hopefully on our next trip to the area we'll be able to stay here again, knowing that if we forget anything, John already has it there.
The cottage in South Wellfleet was a great location. The cottage was furnished as described in the listing. John provided freshly ground coffee from a local coffee shop, so there was fresh coffee each morning. It is a quiet, wood location, and at night I could hear herons calling. John was a perfect host, greeting me when I arrived and keeping a low profile the rest of the week.
I had a great stay
I am a 61-year-old single man, self-employed in several directions: professional musician (trombones/low brass), sole proprietor of a business repairing commercial food service and refrigeration equipment as well as providing oil burner service, and am also a licensed captain (Coast Guard-licensed 50 ton power and sail) providing tours of Wellfleet harbor on my sailboat during the tourist season. I am a year-round resident of Wellfleet.
You will find me to be a ready source of information as to things to do and places to go, and knowledgeable as to the history of our little corner of paradise. However, you will find me to be a "hands-off" host; I will be available if needed, but unobtrusive if not needed.
