“Cape Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

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 you'll ever need.

Room Tip: Only 1 room. Forget a fitness center or room service.

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 Gull Cottage if you are planning a visit to the Cape.

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 Pat and Randy live and where the guests have breakfast. The house and the adjacent building where the large and cozy guest room is are at a pond where I enjoyed swimming every morning. From the house you can make several walks and it is possible to reach the seashore in about twenty minutes. An incredibly peaceful place to relax. Pat and Randy are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed intense conversations at breakfast. They are Cape Cod experts and know everything about the region. Provincetown is just a short drive away, however, if you are looking for parties and lots of restaurants and bars, you are probably better off spending your nights directly there. Gull Cottage stands for peace and silence. Just relax! We will be back.

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 day with an amazing breakfast of delicious food, presented beautifully. This is not your ordinary B&B and Pat and Randy are not your typical inn keepers. Gull Cottage is a true gem worth visiting over and over.

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 accompanied by beautiful flowers and matching tablecloth! I so enjoyed walking around the ponds on the sandy, windy paths. I knew civilization was nearby if I needed it but I loved being away from it, closer to nature and its rhythms. Pat and Randy made sure I had everything I needed to make my stay as wonderful as it could be. The kitchenette was handy for having light dinners in and the outdoor table was a favorite spot for watching the sun set.

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 ever! The studio apartment was meticulously well appointed and squeaky clean. Everything was in working order. We loved the Keurig drip coffee and tea maker with an assortment of both. Just about a 1.5 mile bike ride from Ocean Drive and the dunes and approximately the same distance to the center of town, it is ideal for bicycle devotees and a few minutes by car. One day, after a long bike ride, we just walked a few steps through the yard to sit on the private beach on Gull Pond with a bottle of wine, some snacks and our books. Yes, Paradise does exist.

Room Tip: Only one room atop the Boathouse!
