First settled by Europeans in the early 1600s, Wellfleet has long been a fishing and whaling mecca, employing thousands in fisheries for generations. Today, the town encompasses 21 square miles, of which 61 percent is on the Cape Cod National Seashore, making it one of the most popular summer playgrounds for Northeasterners looking for beautiful coastal views and tranquil sunsets. Art galleries, cozy restaurants, and mom-and-pop shops abound, and you'll get to experience them all from our inviting Wellfleet vacation rentals.

With an enviable location midway between elbow and tip, this Cape Cod town is close to all the area has to offer. Cultural and sports-centric Boston is only 102 miles away. The towns of Chatham and Eastham, both popular small towns on the Cape, are 40 and 15 minutes away by car, respectively. Gay-friendly Provincetown boasts myriad dining and nightlife options at the tip of the Cape.
