We had a group of three families staying together. There were six adults and five children between 5-10 years old. The lake was great for the kids to swim in and the house was well stocked with necessities. There is no air conditioning, but lots of fans and in June it really wasn't needed. The location was good although you do need to do a little searching for grocery stores and such. You may want to bring your own pillows. Overall, we had a great stay.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Great house, great views and great weather. We all had a wonderful time. Stranded for awhile at the lower parking lot at Great Island due to higher that usual tide but waited it out. I would be happy to write in the guestbook. Nice Ping Pong arena. David Nastasia

We really enjoyed the weekend and the Oyster Fest. The house worked out really well for us and our son's family. We loved the view and the location. We're already talking about trying to plan a return trip, maybe next year sometime.
We hiked out to Jeremy Point and beyond at low tide. Fred Barbero

It was wonderful. John Miles

We all had such a wonderful time. Well above expectations.
Hilary Plant

We loved your place. Pawan Shroff


We have great memories of staying at the Main house.
Jean Mach

Howie, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express to you how much we enjoyed staying at the main house. It was absolutely perfect, with the kids down stairs and adults upstairs. The security we felt letting the kids go down to the beach with out worry of them being washed away compared to the ocean side of Wellfleet was a bonus. We all enjoyed the kayak trips over to Great Island, the sunset at Duck Harbor, the Oysters at the Beachcomber, the rail trail, cape cod league baseball, and more. We could not have had more perfect weather. Thanks from all of us. Dan Garrity

Thanks so much, I also wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the Main House. It is one of the best equipped places we have ever stayed. The kitchen met our every need, the back yard with all the sand toys was great. The little kids played there when we first arrived we had to pry them down to the beach. And the bigger kids enjoyed the ping pong table at night. Very nice place and the perfect location. The main house is wonderful and the beach is the best thing for the younger kids. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the deck, watching the shell men. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation for my family and myself. Linda

I want to reiterate what a great place you have down there. We enjoyed many of the Feinstein Family Favorites especially Duck Pond. Les and Libby

thanks howie! the house was accurately described and quite comfy. we enjoyed the view from the deck,the beach and the close proximity of the beautiful beaches on the ocean side.

The Main House was perfect for our big group with ages ranging from 2 to 68. Every one of us loved reading on the porch, listening to the birds and staring at the sea. We walked down to the beach many times each day, flying kites or looking for horseshoe crabs or even taking the little ones out in the kayaks. Wellfleet and surrounds can't be beat, but even if we hadn't left the house we would have had a great vacation. And I hate to say it, the wireless was a lifesaver.

Thanks Howie!
The Caramellos

The house was beautiful and even better than expected.There were 10 of us,including 2 children, and we never felt crowded or lacked privacy.The view of the water from the large upstairs deck was great - very panoramic. The beach was very private.Walking out at low tide was such fun!We were there 6/28 -7/5 and couldn't have asked for better weather. The bay was surprisingly warm for that early in the season.The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a huge assortment of books and games.We had a wonderful time and couldn't have asked for anything better!
Joe & Janet Rice, Chagrin Falls Ohio

What a wonderful place to be. It was perfect for all of us-age range 6 years old to 67. The house is well cared for, the location truly the best, and we all look foward to returning again.

A week in the sun. A week of fun.
Drive-in movies, lobster dinners, and sunny beach days made it a week to remember.
We filled the week with all of our Cape Cod favorites: Box Lunch, Long Pond, the flea market, Province Town, ping pong matches, and beach relaxation.
The best part was that I shared the week with my favorite people.
Dan, Oak Bluffs, MA

Had a wonderful stay at this very family-friendly beach house. Having the beach right out the front door was heaven for our kids, ages four and two, who enjoyed exploring the sand bars, collecting rocks, and paddling around in the warm water. When up for something more adventurous, we headed for one of the ocean-side beaches or one of the ponds -- both made for hours of water fun. We also enjoyed flying kites, the Audubon natural preserve, dining at the Red Inn in Provincetown, the Nice Cream store in Wellfleet, going gallery hopping (sans kids), playing nine holes at the country club down the street, and entertaining on the deck.

A wonderful, relaxing way to spend a week, with tons to do. Thanks, Howie!

Sunny Edmunds, Toronto, Ontario

The deck overlooking Wellfleet Harbor offers an outstanding view. Sunrise, sunset, the changing colors of the sky and water are beautiful and encourage hours of reading and relaxation
- Frances B.

Cape Cod is a regular vacation spot for us, with Wellfleet as one of the best! Especially enjoyed a family tradition of hiking and shelling Great Island. This year we went with our granddaughters where we introduced their daddy to the place over 30 years ago. A wonderful time!
Ed and Nancy Currier

Howie, Thank you for the use of your house. The main house is exactly as presented on the web and as you described. We had a wonderful time during our stay, despite several rainy days. We celebrated mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family for the entire week. The house was perfect for the 8 of us (7 adults, and a 3 YO) with room to spare. The neighbors were wonderful and helpful. The beach was always available, and we second the comment made by a previous commenter, the nearby lakes are also worth a day of your time. We went to Gull pond and rented sail boats and kayaks from Jacks, he was very resonable and helpful as well. In case you are wondering there are plenty of good books in the house and more table games than you could possibly play in a week available. No need to bring them with you. We fully recommend the main house to anyone considering it. Say hello to the neighbors for us. Tom, Dorothy, Bob, Susanne, MJ, Mom and Dad and Lil Edgar Li Robitaille.
The Robitaille Family, CT, LA, GA, CA

Biking, beaching and boogie boarding were all big with the kids. As was
ice cream !!! We hit Uncle Franks on our bikes for a doughnut most
mornings - nice little ride to the Harbor and back. We rented a boat for
1/2 day in Wellfleet Harbor. We hit the Square Dancing one night - that was
fun. AND, we hit PJs 5-6 times. Great breakfast at the Lighthouse one day
We walked out at low tide a few times at the Sea Shells Beach but never
really stayed there or used that beach, but it was great having a beach so
near by that the kids could at least go run around on. We did go to the ponds many times after the beach. Long Pond with the float was a favorite. Tennis at Chequsett and Olivers.
We just need two more weeks. :))
