Cape Cod Bayside
This rental home exceeded our expectations in regards to amenities and location. The house itself, although oddly laid out, offers a number of spaces on different levels so folks can spread out. The king bedroom with a view is flooded with light during the day. Outside the house is a patio area with fire pit and gas grill, picnic table and chairs. At night there is ambient outdoor lighting and tiki torches. We really enjoyed the hammock and the awesome outdoor shower with plenty of hot water. Just a short walk away is the most amazing bayside beach, Bound Brook Island Beach. Sparsely populated even on warm summer days, the beach faces west, allowing for sunsets over the water. Not bad for the East Coast! There were seals in the water but no shark sightings during our stay. The dunes surrounding the beach are also fun to explore. Overall this was a very pleasant late summer week on the Cape.
Beautiful, private, but beware the driveway.
Beautiful, quiet, private, walking distance to the magical Bound Brook Island beach. House is cute and easily accommodated our family of 4 preteen/teens and 2 dogs. Delicious wild blackberries all over the place. Only negative is the driveway which is kind of terrifying. 7 minutes to pavement, bottomed out a few times. Other than that, it is idyllic.
Hi Eliza! Thank you so much for the review about our property! We greatly appreciate your feedback and hope to see you next year. You were perfect guests, and we look forward to next time! -The Cape Cod Oceanview Team
This converted barn/icehouse is at the end of several miles of rutted dirt roads. The delightful walk to the nearly empty beach is through the woods and doons, lined with berries and poison ivy. The reality company was very responsive to the issues that arose...the lack of WiFi, the non-working oven, the leaky roof during torrential downpours. The house is awkward: bed rooms and baths on different levels, rickety pull down ladder to loft room, keyhole kitchen, uneven lighting... That being said, however, it is fully functional, well supplied with much needed fans, and affords several outdoor seating areas with shade and breezes. The weedy,(I spent an hour pulling weeds so that I could sweep the debris away) brick patio, however is not of them! Although I imagine it being delightful on cool, sunny days. None of these issues came as a surprise, and the house offered us a private, pleasant, affordable place near a lovely beach.

Know that you are one with nature
When my family visits the cape we usually aim for "the elbow" because its near all the stuff we like to do. This year we went a little further and stayed here in Wellfleet. If you are considering this place, know that you will be almost into Truro and that you are deep in the National Seashore. There is a long, rutted, sandy dirt road to get in (from a paved road) and a long grassy rutted "lane" and this house is the last one on it. It can be rough on your car. Compare it to staying in other pristine natural places around the country- Big Sur comes to mind, the Adirondacks, adjust your attitude thusly and you won't be disappointed. Cell reception is spotty to absent and wifi comes from the main house over a hill and is also spotty. This was fine for my husband and I- the kids had some tech withdrawal. You can walk back down the country lane and hike a short dune path to Bound Brook island beach which is a beautiful bay beach perfect for swimming, shell hunting, kite flying. Seals will pop up their heads to see what you are doing. There is no lifeguard. We had walkie talkies so we could radio back to our house when we wanted to be in touch- this worked better than cell. The house is a former ice house and barn that was made over in the 70s It still has that funky vibe. There is a loft with a fold down ladder that has a queen size bed- The owners might consider sometime making that staircase permanent so it's less rickety. We kept it down the whole time we stayed. There is another loft like space with 2 twins accessible by a staircase and my daughter preferred to use the futon downstairs on the main level. There are 2 bathrooms, we mostly used the downstairs one and the outside one was there if that other was occupied. The house was extraordinarily clean and maintained for what it is - a cabin in the woods. Expect some bugs, there are frogs that hang out on the patio at night, and deer- one jumped over the front of our car. My advy is to bring what you will need with you when you go because it's hard to run out for something. This is more remote than say, Orleans or Eastham where you can run to stop n shop. If you have provisions for that first day it will be easier. Moms, there is washer and dryer. Caution to people with health issues or elderly persons maybe to choose another place because of the spotty cell service- and remote location. There is a land line in the house, though. We would stay again 😉�
Wonderful house tucked away in a quiet corner near the bay
We stayed here with two adults and two small kids and we all loved it. It's a really special little place, quiet and tucked away from the hubub of the Route 6 drag. Simple and rustic but quiet, and peaceful. We loved the outdoor shower and the proximity to the bay beach. Amazing sunsets all week! We didn't have mosquito or other problems during our stay (early August). Lots of little nooks inside the house and out - different hammocks for reading, different tables so that at any point of the day, there is a shady spot to sit and eat. The house got a bit warm on the humid days, but we could clear out the hot air with fans at night. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quiet getaway on the Cape!
Wonderful Stay in National Seashore!
Our family has stayed at this cottage many times over the years, usually in July or August (off season last time), and it is very dear to us. It is located deep inside the National Seashore, and is extremely private and quiet, the loudest sounds being the wind in the pine trees. A wonderful place to unwind, sit on the brick patio and relax, read, listen to the birds and take in the natural beauty all around. A few minutes’ walk down a sandy lane brings you to what is in our opinion most beautiful beach on the East Coast, the Bound Brook Island beach where even in August there are few other people, just gentle waves lapping on the shore, sand pipers and gulls. Other walks in the National Seashore are at your doorstep. And pop your bikes on your bike rack and a few minutes journey brings you to the Head of the Meadow Beach bike trail in Truro or to Provincetown's National Seashore trails, or to the fresh water ponds on the ocean side of Rte. 6 if you prefer fresh-water swimming. Or stay at home and pick wild blueberries or beach plums by the side of the private driveway and treat your family to blueberry muffins or beach plum jelly. The spot is as lovely in October, in a different way, as it is in summer.
We found that the cottage itself is ideal for a family, as there are actually three bedrooms (one on a loft above the living room), and a sun room area with desk, chair and futon. Everyone in our family had a favorite area to hang out in. There is a well-equipped kitchen and even a washing machine and dryer. It is a place with a lot of character, with a modern wing attached to a 19th century part that was once an icehouse for fish caught at Duck Harbor, and that was part of one of Bound Brook Island’s most historic farms – so definitely not a cookie-cutter kind of place! The owners are extremely responsive and we never have had any issues that interfered with our wonderful vacations. Highly recommended!
