Rates are dependent on the season and the length of your stay and occasionally other factors. The nightly rate for the boathouse studio is $225-$250 single or double occupancy. Extra guests in the room are $50 each, with a maximum of three persons altogether. Please call or email us to find out the details. During the busy season, June 1-Sept 15 and some other times, the minimum stay is three days, but we encourage you to stay much longer than that, as there is so much to do and enjoy here at the cottage and in Wellfleet, not to mention the surrounding villages.
Our complete package includes nightly accommodations and full breakfasts if you wish, but there are other options. During your stay, the private beach and the grounds, as well as your room, are for your use. The porch is also available some of the time.
The Boathouse Studio:
Our only guest accommodation is the Boathouse Studio, described in the Guest Room menu item.
We try to prepare the foods that you will like. Along with your advance registration, you will be asked to fill out a form stating your food preferences, allergies, and special diets. As we have few guests at a time, we are usually able to accommodate your requests.
We normally do not allow pets of any kind. We and many of our guests come to see wildlife, and pets running around disturb nature's organisms. We do, however, have an indoor cat, which has the run of the main house. She has never been in the Boathouse Studio, but please understand that she will be in the main house. In that regard, it is essential that she stay inside the house and the porch. Be very careful about opening doors as the cat may be at your feet.
Smoking is not permitted in the rooms or anywhere on our property (except in your car). We are sorry, but the chance of fire is always a concern.
We are sorry, but our facilities are not handicap accessible. You must be able to walk over uneven ground and to get to the Boathouse Studio, you must climb 15 steps.
We have "Cape Cod Air Conditioning", which means the fresh air blows freely through the doors at each end of the Boathouse, and we have two fans to help circulate it. Also, cable companies do not service this area, so your Internet devices may not work here, and we have no television coverage. We have had success with a Verizon cell phone and a Verizon air card and MiFi device, but we can't promise that anything else will work here. However, the Library in town and many other places do have Internet service that can be accessed from your car or anywhere nearby. But, if air conditioning and on site Internet or TV are vital to your happiness, this isn't the place for you.
