This Cape Cod-style family cottage has two bedrooms and
one bath, but is not one of the Surf Side cottages. Even though this
cottage is not located at the beach, Bessie's Cottage is a reasonably
priced, Wellfleet getaway spot with a lot to offer, including use of the 60'
heated indoor pool and other facilities at the neighboring Even'tide Resort
Motel. There is direct access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path, which
provides a 1-1/2 mile bike ride to Marconi Beach.
The cottage has a cozy dining room and a galley-style kitchen that is fully-equipped for
cooking, including a four-burner electric stove with oven, new
full-size refrigerator/freezer, new built-in dishwasher, a microwave
oven, toaster, coffeemaker and plenty of pots, pans, dishes and cooking
utensils. The living room has a new flat-panel cable TV with DVD player and
comfortable seating. Beach chairs, towels, toys and boogie boards are provided,
as are a selection of movies, books, games and puzzles.
The master bedroom has a new queen-size bed, an air conditioner,
a second cable TV, and a ceiling fan. The second bedroom has a
set of bunk beds and a second air conditioner. The 2-zone baseboard
heating system will keep you comfortable in the spring and fall seasons.
This family cottage also boasts free Wi-fi Internet access and free local and long-distance calling, including Canada, on the land-line phone.
Outdoors, Bessie's Cottage has a new deck with a table and chairs for
outdoor dining. There is a charcoal BBQ just off the deck. At the front
of the cottage you have a new garden/sitting area with a fire pit and a
hammock. This area is now fenced in with a stockade fence
to ensure privacy.
Nearby, we have a laundry room with coin-operated washers and dryers.
There is off-street parking for two cars at the cottage.

“Bessie's cottage is a perfect family getaway, with all you need inside and fun things to do outside. We enjoyed the deck, the cozy family room, the AC on hot days, the well-stacked kitchen, and especially the indoor pool
at the neighboring motel. Would definitely stay here again. ”

Our stay was absolutely amazing! This was the perfect location, since I was here on business working with the Mass Audubon right down the street. I was easily able to travel back and forth to work with my group, and still
enjoy all the comforts of a quiet stay with my family. Everything and anything you could possibly think of, they have for you or will get for you! Easy to get to, great amenities, close to several beaches! Armand and Lisa
were amazing hosts, and we loved chatting with them and learning the history of the property. I would definitely stay here again!

Definitely a 5 star rating!
Bessie's Cottage is so comfortable and a blessing to be calling "home" on vacation, with the lovely private setting
& landscaped yard, and we especially loved eating all our meals on the deck!
The kitchen is fully applianced for cooking, bedrooms and living room are comfortable, the cottage is centrally located to oceans, beaches, restaurants & lovely downtown Wellfleet
& Eastham, and a short hop to quaint & historic Provencetown or a grocery store in Orleans.
Use of the pool and outdoor activities is definitely a decision-tipping factor.
Owners Armand & Lisa are kind, lovely and a wealth of historical, logistical and good-dining information!
Future renters will have a wonderful time enjoying the quiet cottage, meals out on the deck, and time with friends or family. Take very good care of this cottage... we want to come back next year!!!
L.D. - Dayville, CT “Wonderful weekend on the Cape”
We had a wonderful time at Bessie's cottage. The cottage was clean and filled with everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The location was ideal
as we were able to hike and bike a minute from the cottage. Having the use of the pool at Eventide was our children's favorite part of the vacation.
Lisa was wonderful as she was present very frequently to answer all our questions and provide us with a few extras we needed. We were sad to leave
but made an agreement as a family to return again next year.
