Very relaxing, off the beaten track, surrounded by ponds and nature. Totally quiet. Cottage is tastefully decorated, clean, and comfortable on 2nd floor with a couch, chairs, table, small kitchenette, minifrig. Small deck but cannot really see the nearby pond. Excellent breakfast served by friendly and helpful hosts at their house next door to the cottage. It's down a narrow sandy road just barely ok for regular car, no internet, but we did not mind. Welfleet is a beautiful area for walking, beautiful ocean and bay beaches, hiking, and kayaking. We kayaked on the interconnected ponds just outside the cottage, very beautiful, especially in the morning and late afternoon. Great restaurants nearby as well. HIghly recommend Gull Cottage - very special place.
Staying at Gull Cottage B&B was a profoundly restorative experience. I went in early October and the weather was warm and sunny every day. Pat and Randy were such warm and welcoming hosts. They helped me figure out my way around the ponds which were beautiful. Breakfast on their screened in porch was delicious, filling and beautifully presented with a bouquet of flowers and matching tablecloth! The Boathouse was charming, comfortable and well equipped with a kitchenette and lots of interesting books and magazines. I loved sitting on the deck eating dinner and watching the sun sink below Gull Pond. Being at this B&B was one of my top travel experiences.
We stayed at Gull Cottage for 4 nights after a busy night in Boston and a couple nights in Martha's Vineyard. The location was perfect only about 30 minutes from P Town and a short drive to Chatham and other destinations. The breakfasts and hospitality were wonderful, as we had breakfast each morning with Pat and Randy, the owners. We looked forward to the tips they gave us to local sights and the stories about the history of the cottage. The boat house, which is where vistors stay, is for one couple or group and it's everything that you need. A very nice place to relax along with a comfortable bed and a bathroom with a shower. We took lawn chairs, provided by the owners, and spent and hour or two at the lake. We enjoyed breakfast each morning in the screened in porch. During breakfast, we saw hummingbirds, chipmunks and even a fox feeding 20 feet from us! While the cottage is off the beaten path, there are many nice restaurants within 15 minutes of the B&B along with a variety of beaches and shops. This is a perfect place to get off the grid. There are no cell phone service, internet or t.v. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of having no access to technology, but if that's something you need, this would'nt be the place. We will have memories from the stay that we will hold close to our hearts. Thank you to Pat and Randy!
My husband and I spent almost a week at Gull Cottage for our honeymoon. The guest room was wonderful. It's very private, with lots of room, and a lovely outdoor deck. I loved waking up, making a cup of coffee and reading my book outside listening to the birds. The location of Gull Cottage was also ideal. We brought our bikes and were able to do a lot of nice rides right from the property. We also liked how close it was to Newcomb's beach and the town of Wellfleet- super convenient. The B&B is also right in the midst of the kettle ponds and the swimming and walking trails around were great. Last but not least, Randy and Pat were excellent hosts. The breakfasts were delicious (and Pat accommodated my chocolate addiction by including it whenever possible- so sweet.) and we really enjoyed their company (in fact my husband kept sneaking off with Randy in the afternoon to go fishing.) We had so much fun, that we're hoping to visit again next summer.
Gull Cottage is a 'Cape Cod' cottage in an idyllic position with a private beach on Gull Pond. The b&b room is above a boathouse, so with privacy from the house, but it's more of a suite with kitchenette and a sitting/dining room. The excellent breakfast is at the main house, watching the bird life (Pat and Randy, the owners, are keen naturalists and not only good company but a mine of information - Pat is from an old Cape family). This was my first visit to the Cape but I had high expectations as my fiancee has been coming here all her life - those expectations were more than met, and we would recommend Gull Cottage wholeheartedly.
Gull Cottage is extraordinary! Allow yourself to step back in time and unwind in the most exquisite part of the Cape. Tucked between Gull and Higgins ponds you will find paradise. Whether a birder, canoer, or nature enthusiast, this is the perfect place. Pat and Randy are interesting, attentive, great breakfast makers, and such engaging hosts! Breakfast is amazing ...from garden fresh fritattas to sweet and savory crêpes or anything you desire, you will not leave hungry or disappointed! The boathouse is charming and cozy. This is our favorite place on the Cape to get away from it all; get lost in one of the many trails in the woods or dip into one of the nearby refreshing Freshwater ponds..
We escaped to Wellfleet from NYC on a freezing weekend in March – missing an unseasonable heat wave by two days... Thankfully, we stayed at the Gull Cottage boat house; bright, charming, private and spotless its nestled amidst trees and ponds at the end of a winding dirt road. We spent several long cozy evenings and mornings luxuriating around the wood (gas) stove, with our own kitchenette and bookshelves brimming with great reads both classics and contemporary. Delicious daily fresh breakfasts, artfully prepared by Randy and Pat and served in their historic home at their picture window framing a view of the pond and a bouquet of bird feeders and birds, was yet another unexpected pleasure. It's easy to imagine Gull Cottage is special at every season, and we look very forward to returning in warm weather for the "outdoor" version of same.
