I absolutely loved my stay at Gull Cottage! The boathouse is a small open studio with a living room, kitchen, bedroom area, and bathroom. It is very private and peaceful. The grounds surrounding the cottage are beautiful and include a view of the water. The best part of the stay was the amazing meals prepared by Pat and Randy each... More

Sleep in the 21st century eat in the 18th. You sleepin a modern, spacious, comfortable apartment and then have a gourmet breakfast in a pre1800 Cape Cod home. Private beach with near wilderness surrounding you. Cavalcades of birds come to the feeders. Your hosts, a retired history prof. and wife will fill you with more info on Cape Cod than... More

We felt like we entered an artist’s retreat and wildlife haven reserved for royalty. Our Boathouse hideaway, straddling two ponds, was spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and wholesome. Pat and Randy, sparkling conversationalists, welcomed us and made us feel special. Henry David Thoreau would have been delighted.

We absolutely loved staying at Gull Cottage this past Labor Day - Randy and Pat are wonderful hosts, and provided us with everything we needed. The Boathouse is charming and authentically Capey, and provided comfort and privacy. The breakfasts were superb, and the views marvelous. We got to know Randy and Pat, and really enjoyed their company. We enthusiastically recommend... More

Returning from an "Indian Summer" trip to Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, we spent three nights at the Gull Cottage B&B in Wellfleet. What a relief after the Boston traffic jams and the busy route number 6. A short drive from this route, you arrive at a secluded place close to paradise. An original Cape Cod house where the hosts...

Our stay at Gull Cottage was absolutely wonderful! We stayed in the private boathouse just steps from the main house and beautiful Gull and Higgins ponds. The views from the porch were spectacular and the large private accommodations were comfy and immaculate. Our hosts, Pat and Randy were very warm, interesting people and couldn't be more helpful. We started our... More

My experience at the Boathouse at Gull Cottage B&B was profoundly restorative, away from the normal hustle and bustle of life. The accommodations were charming, comfortable and very quiet. The views were amazing, overlooking both Gull and Higgins ponds. Pat and Randy's hospitality was so warm and welcoming. The breakfast, served on their screened in porch, was delicious, filling and...

Due to a major bike accident last year, I was unable to travel to the Cape in 2012. So, once I was healed, we decided to return to Gull Cottage this summer to see if we could re-capture paradise. I am happy to say that the B&B and its engaging and attentive hosts, Pat and Randy, are as good as... More

The Boathouse at Gull Cottage nests between 2 Kettle ponds and borders some wetlands, perfect for birders! What birds you couldn't see, you could hear--wonderful music. You are in for a treat if you stay at the Boathouse, it is very clean and roomy enough for 3 people. It is filled with interesting books, magazines, games, maps and even a... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful three day stay at Gull Cottage. Everything about our stay was perfect, starting with the gorgeous setting and the accommodations in a thoughtfully designed and beautifully built cottage perched like a treehouse between two lakes. But what really makes Gull Cottage special are Pat and Randy, who brought a level of... More
