The Light cottage is out near the end of a little peninsula called Indian Neck in Wellfleet. In the old days, townspeople referred to such spits of land as "necks" just as they referred to the low areas in between dunes as "hollows". Indian Neck divides an inlet known as Blackfish Creek from the main part of Wellfleet Bay. Light is a large, homey cottage where a family can stretch out in the main living area or enjoy the privacy of its five bedrooms. The oversized deck overlooks Blackfish Creek, once a deep salt river leading to the port of South Wellfleet where the packet boats delivered mail and supplies, and now the anchorage of many small boats waiting for a sunny, breezy sailing day.
Just a short walk away on a sandy dirt road is the neighborhood association beach, where families meet to swim and sun. Further back toward the mainland is a tennis court for the use of families on this part of Indian Neck. The cottage is perfect for solitude without isolation. Its remote location is still an area of scrub pines with scented ferns and bayberry, luring you to wander from the deck and share a few moments with nature, but it's just two miles to the center of Wellfleet.
This expansive cottage has a dishwasher, laundry, TV for watching DVD movies, phone, WiFi, and an enclosed "shore shower" outside for rinsing off salt and sand. Small to medium dogs are allowed only with permission from the owner, proof of prescription flea and tick medication, and a security deposit.
