About Wellfleet

With the bay to the west, and the sea to the east, Wellfleet and its miles of beautiful beaches attract thousands of visitors each year. But this Outer Cape community is so much more than saltwater and sand. 

Wellfleet: the perfect Cape Cod Escape

Within a short drive of our boutique hotel are one of the nation’s last drive-in theaters, a world-class French bistro, and the first distillery on Cape Cod since prohibition. Pretty cool, eh? Founded in 1755, Wellfleet offers an abundance of charming seaside character. Plus, its confines include the unmatched natural resources of the Cape Cod National Seashore. 

In the center of downtown, you’ll find shopping, browsing, dining, and Instagram-worthy sightseeing opportunities. The harbor, home to the famous “Wellfleet Oyster” is the beating heart of shellfish commerce. Therefore, it offers an ever-changing landscape of seafaring vessels, and community oriented town activities.

Unpretentious and artful, this Cape Cod vacation destination offers the perfect locale for your relaxing, yet active, New England vacation. In addition, Provincetown is a short drive away. All the beaches are close by. The northern end of the rail trail is around the corner. Most importantly, your napkin can be in your lap at the best Cape Cod restaurants in just a few minutes.
