Our charming Writer's Cabin in the woods is the perfect hideaway for a nature lover's retreat. Close to Wellfleet's ocean beaches, town center, ponds, bike & walking trails, you're surrounded by nature with views akin to being in a treehouse. NOTE: 1. You will CLIMB a gentle incline on a wood's path to the cabin & ladder stairs to get up to the sleeping loft. 2. Guests love our fully enclosed OUTSIDE shower w/ hot water & warm bathrobes. (Standard, flushing toilet inside building.)

We call our Writer's Cabin in the woods our "piece of heaven on earth", not only because the cabin is situated on the highest perch of our wooded property, but mostly because the vibe is so perfect for a peaceful, creative retreat. Built by Russell as a wedding gift for Susannah, the cabin is filled with our favorite books. Light streams in through the many stained glass windows Russell collects and you can sit on the porch listening to birds sing and the rustling of leaves in the summer breeze. Our enclosed outside shower w/hot water under the trees and built onto the porch is two steps from the door to the inside of the cabin and an experience our guests have called "magical". We provide warm, fluffy bathrobes so you can comfortably use the shower till the end of October and from May onwards.

On cooler evenings or rainy days, Russell can make a wood fire for you in the wood stove and you can settle into our reading chair or day bed with a book. (We cannot allow our guests to make a fire themselves for safety reasons, but are happy to do so for you upon request.)

There is a quality, memory-foam queen mattress with cotton sheets (we believe a good's night sleep is essential for a good vacation!) in the sleeping loft, which is accessible via ladder-stairs. The loft also has a meditation altar. A third single daybed - also with a good-quality mattress - is available downstairs and can be made up also with cotton sheets if you book as three guests.

You'll have a mini-fridge, microwave, farmer's sink, coffee maker and kettle for tea as well as cups, dishes and cutlery to make eating in the cabin convenient.

NOTE: This is the right rental for you if you love being in nature in a rustic setting and are open to using a private, enclosed outside shower, a unique Cape Cod experience that we locals enjoy June-October. We have fluffy bathrobes to keep you warm when you step out of the shower back into the cabin. *** No worries, the half-bath is INSIDE the cabin and is equipped with a normal, flushable toilet pipped into our home septic :-), only the shower is outside. (We use our own outside shower well into November.)

Apho uza kuba khona

Wellfleet, Massachusetts, United States

We live in a very quiet, rural neighborhood, set back into the woods off a long, private driveway. Wellfleet town center, the harbor and the bay are walking distance from our property, the ocean is about a 7 min drive away. Wellfleet is located about 20 miles from bustling Provincetown, a popular tourist location. We particularly recommend whale watching from Provincetown Harbor, which is situated on the very tip of Cape Cod!

Hi and thank you for visiting our listings! I, Susannah, am a writer for the Arts section of our local newspaper and am working on a novel about my family's history on Cape Cod. I am also a proud breast cancer survivor and advocate. My husband Russell is a carpenter, who has been building Cape Cod homes for over 30 years. We live in the family home my grandpa Steve built with our two daughters Aurelia Skye and Helena Rose (17 and 12 years old), our sweet, loving dog SerenStar, our friendly indoor/outdoor barn cats Fiddle and Felix (who love greeting our guests), our new kitten Fae (who only lives indoors for now), our three silly goats Lance Romance, Puck and Princess Buttercup and our 16 mademoiselles (= egg laying chickens). Both our families have lived on the Outer Cape, this wild slice of land between ocean and bay, for many generations. Susannah's family has hosted visitors since the 1930s and we have welcomed AirBnB guests from around the world for over a decade. We feel incredibly lucky to live here in Wellfleet and feel privileged to share our little piece of heaven with our guests, who in turn by coming here help us keep our beloved home in our family. Our families are both deeply rooted on the Outer Cape. Russell's ancestor, John Fulcher, survived one of Cape Cod's many historical shipwrecks off Nauset Beach in 1852. Desperate sailors had tied the Irish boy - age 14 - to the ship's mast during a terrible storm in the hopes he might be spared. Miraculously, young John was washed ashore alive the next morning, still tied to the sunken ship's mast with the ship's wet cat tucked under his shirt. Hard to know who was more frightened, the boy or the cat! One of only three survivors, young John Fulcher never set foot on a ship again. Instead he married a local Cape Cod girl and founded the Fulcher family, now one of the largest Cape Cod families. Russell has more cousins than he can count! Susannah's great-grandfather Clarence Bell's ancestors settled in Wellfleet after arriving from England not long after the Mayflower landed. Clarence was the first doctor on the Outer Cape to own an automobile, which allowed him to serve many in need from Provincetown to Eastham. There is a plaque on Wellfleet's Main Street to commemorate Clarence Bell's commitment to families in our community. Clarence's daughter Clarece, Susannah's grandmother, married the young carpenter Stephen Daniels and together they built a home for their young family - this home is now our Sunshine House. Susannah's mother Sharon grew up in this house until, as a college student, she meet and fell in love with Susannah's father, Siegfried, during a study-abroad summer in Austria. Sharon moved to Austria with Siegfried, where Susannah was born in a small town on the foot of the Alps. Her family spent every summer in Wellfleet with Grandpa Steve. Susannah learned to walk here in her grandpa's house, and for as long as she can remember longed to one day live in this house in Wellfleet. Susannah and Russell were married in front of the fireplace in Grandpa's house and have since turned it into their small B&B named Sunshine House, in the spirit of Susannah's musician brother Chris Beer's song "Sunshine". These words from the song capture the feeling Susannah and Russell hope to give everyone who visits this magical place: "I want some sunshine in my life ... open up my windows and let the sunshine in ... no matter what the future may bring, I'm going to build those windows right in, to let the sunshine in ... I'm in the mood for sunshine, hit me with some sunshine, I want sunshine in my life ..." It brings us such joy to bring sunshine into the life of our guests! Susannah & Russell

Ngexesha lokuhlala kwakho

We love welcoming Air BnB guests from all around the world, getting to know you and hearing your stories. We are very happy to chat with you, give you local advice and get to know you.

OR we are also happy to simply give your complete space and privacy to just enjoy one another, our wonderful town and beaches and relax. In other words, we're here for you if you need us, but won't bother you unless you ask for us. :-)

We especially appreciate our Air BnB guests who understand the difference between Air BnB and a regular, professional Bed and Breakfast or Motel/Hotel: instead of being in a commercial rental you will be welcomed into a home of locals, where you can get a feel for the "real" Cape Cod.
In the warm months we often have outside fires in our fire pit in the evenings, sometimes we dance under the stars. We are always happy to welcome our guests to join us if they would like to!!
