Spend your vacation enjoying dramatic views and enjoying the sights and sounds of life along the Atlantic Ocean. The Ocean View house is a one bedroom, one bathroom home, with a lower level living area that includes a full size futon, that sleeps four. You will find yourself minutes away from ocean beaches, ponds, trails, and the charming village of Wellfleet. This spacious, well equipped home will make your stay at Cape Cod National Seashore memorable.
The Ocean View House is a very short walk to the public beach, with outstanding views of the ocean from the home's deck. If a 1.5 mile hike of medium difficulty to a local kettle pond is for you, then explore the nearby paths to Duck Pond. Explore beyond the beach and you will find the seashore is so much more. There are miles of walking and biking trails through pine forests, across sandy dunes and alongside fresh water ponds. You can climb to the top of one of the many light houses and experience a piece of maritime history that helped our new nation grow and thrive. For the wildlife lover there are opportunities to spot over 450 species of amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds, and mammals that make the seashore their home.
The great Outer Beach described by Thoreau in the 1800's is protected within Cape Cod National Seashore. Forty miles of pristine sandy beach, marshes, ponds and uplands support diverse species. Lighthouses, cultural landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs offer a glimpse of Cape Cod’s past and continuing ways of life.
