The cottage location is perfect. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is small so if you love to cook or cooking for a family could be challenging. The deck is large with plenty of furniture to really enjoy the outdoor space.

About the neighbourhood
Waterfront and beachfront cottage located on Lieutenant Island with panoramic unobstructed views of Wellfleet harbor, Great Island, Jeremy Point, Billingsgate and Cape Cod Bay. Located in a very serene island style neighborhood. An endless number of outdoor and water activities at the cottage and on the island (swimming, canoeing, tidal flats, beaches, etc.). Wellfleet kettle ponds, National Seashore beaches and trails, bike trails, surfing, paddle boarding, golf courses, art galleries, fantastic restaurants, and so much more are all close by. There is parking for several cars at the cottage.
Getting around
Transportation is reccomended while staying at the cottage to enjoy the nearby sights of Cape Cod. We are approximately two and a half miles from route 6 and the Cape Cod bike trail. Biking is very popular on the Outer Cape and the cottage is a good launching point for the bicycle enthusiast.
