My wife and I had the pleasure of renting this home and can't say enough good things about the amazing views and central location. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, fishing and sailing while we there. The home was comfortable and clean, it was the perfect place for us to relax and escape city life.

We stayed at this home with our 2 young kids and my parents. The layout worked well because my parents were in a bedroom on the 1st floor with their own bathroom and we were upstairs with the kids. They loved the bunk bed and we enjoyed the master bedroom with water views and deck. The house was very clean and had everything we needed, the location was amazing. We walked to town with the kids a few times and spent a lot of time at the private beach. We have rented many homes over the years and this was by far our favorite because of the sunsets on the deck. The screened in porch was also very helpful because the kids had an extra place to play on the few rainy days. The ocean beach was an easy drive and we would get there early, then come home for lunch and spend the rest of the day at the private beach where the kids could swim without the worry of big waves (I do recommend reef shoes). My parents loved the art galleries in town and I highly recommend a whale watching tour out of P-town. Thank you to the homeowners for a wonderful vacation, it was exactly what we wanted!

This house was perfect for our family vacation. My kids loved the private beach and spent hours, swimming, crabbing, fishing and exploring. My husband and I enjoyed the easy access for paddle boarding. The ocean beach was a short drive and we were able to get a beach pass for the week from the town (the homeowner made this easy for us with a form that they fill out).The screened in porch and 2nd floor deck were the perfect place for our morning coffee and the sunsets were amazing! The house had everything we needed in the kitchen and we used the BBQ a few times. The kids also enjoyed the game room in the basement. I was happy about the laundry on site and we all loved the outdoor shower. The layout of the house worked well for us and we plan on coming back again next summer. The owners Cheri and John are very accommodating and easy to work with. They went out of their way to answer lots of questions since it was our first time to Wellfleet.

I just want to say how much we loved our vacation at this home. It was our first time to Cape Cod and we can't wait to go back. Wellfleet was the perfect place for us and the town has great shops and restaurants. We have a baby and it was our first big trip with him. We were nervous about staying at the house because he is crawling but John and Cheri have it set up appropriately, it was safe and clean. The house has a portable crib, baby gates, locks, a high chair. This was helpful because we were flying and couldn't pack those things. We loved walking to town with the baby and spending time on the private beach which made it convenient for his naps. The outdoor shower was lovely and our favorite thing was the hammock in the front yard. We also enjoyed the screened porch and deck for dining with stunning views of the harbor, we loved watching all the boats go by. I would highly recommend renting this home and can't say enough great things about the owners!

Thank you for a wonderful vacation at your home. We loved the central location and the quiet dead end street was great for our kids. Your home is in excellent condition and it felt very beachy. The water views and proximity to the beach were exactly what we were looking for. It was our first time in Wellfleet and it is now one of our favorite towns on the Cape. My older kids walked to town along the beach path and thought that was great! My wife and I enjoyed biking and were happy to be so close to the bike path. Thank you also for all your great restaurant recommendations! We look forward to coming back in 2019!

This home was great for our family vacation. The location worked out well because we had relatives renting a house in the same neighborhood. We used the private beach very often and loved being able to go back and forth to the house. The outdoor shower was a must have for our rental and so was outdoor dining space with a view, this home had both. We loved the screened in porch and open floor plan. The master bedroom had really nice views and the layout with 2 bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs worked well for us. The kitchen had everything we needed but we ate out most nights because there are so many great restaurants in the area (make reservations ahead of time). The public beach can get a little crowded but we went in the afternoon when the lots would clear out a bit. Next time we will get the weekly beach sticker to avoid the parking hassle at prime time. Overall, a great home and vacation.

Hi John, I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for your hospitality. We really enjoyed all of your recommendations and most of all staying at your lovely home. WE spent most evenings watching the sunsets and eating are dinners in the screened in porch. A perfect home for us...we look forward to a return visit sometime soon! Take care! Betsy Thomas

We spoke with a few property owners and found John to have the best property for us. Once we arrived everything was as described by the owner. The views from this home are amazing! The house is very well cared for and has everything you would need to entertain your family. It's a peaceful location and a 1 minute walk to a private beach on WellfleetHarbor. Everyday we walked to town along the beach which takes 15 minutes. John Glennon was excellent to work with and we would recommend this home show more

My family enjoyed our vacation staying in this family friendly home! The house is kept clean and organized. The views of WellfleetHarbor are outstanding! My family spent countless hours gazing out at the water, barbecuing, playing games on the screened porch, hiking on the beach, walking to town, sunsets, ping pong, outdoor shower, and on and on. We truly loved everything about this house and its location. We highly recommend staying here and made wonderful memories. Thank you!

My family stayed at this home during the summer of 2014. The house was everything we had expected and the views were more impressive in person. The house was clean and perfectly maintained. I was initially attracted to the house because of the views. I felt even more comfortable after speaking to the homeowner on the phone and reviewing all of the pictures on his website. He was very clear about what I could expect when using his house and it was exactly as he described. The location was perfect for us. It's a 1 minute walk to a private bay beach, walking distance to town and a five minute car ride to the ocean beaches. The kids loved exploring the private beach. My husband and I loved watching the sunset from the top deck and eating our dinner on the screened in porch. Thanks! We hope to return soon! The Clahane Family

I stayed at this house with my husband and kids. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable. The screened porch and deck were amazing! It was fantastic living on the water for the week and being so close to all that Wellfleet has to offer. The location was quiet and located on a hill top over looking beautiful WellfleetHarbor. It is steps to a private beach. The owner takes good care of the home and made sure we had everything we needed.

House was very nice inside and out, well kept and very clean. Kitchen was gorgeous and very accommodating, bathrooms were clean. The views from the top deck/sitting room of the house were amazing, great sunsets as well. Steps away from the Harbor/Bay and five minute driving distance from the Ocean and Freshwater Pond. Shops and restaurants were great, people were warm and friendly. Pearl restaurant was lovely, great food, excellent service. Owner was friendly, accommodating, and recommended lots of places to go, restaurants and activities for the time of our stay. Was very pleased with the service, house, location, and town, would highly recommend to all.

We had a great time in the upper cape and the house was exactly what we needed. The location is great since it is really not that far from anything we wanted to do. We did not have an agenda, just wanted a place where we could reconnect with our two college-aged children and be a family. Whale watching was great. The beaches are beautiful. For the most part, we were ahead of the busy season. The property was clean and the owners were very nice and very helpful. We did discover that the no-see-ums kept us off the upstairs deck at dusk if you were wearing shorts. You can cover up with long pants/sleeves or a blanket. Also, since linens and towels are not provided with the home, we had to bring along an extra suitcase just for linens for the four of us. We discovered the Furies literally just around the corner that rents linens and towels and more. For the cost of an extra suitcase round trip, you can rent what you need with no hassle. They also provide a cleaning service if you don't want to clean up yourself when you leave. Great seafood wherever you go on the cape. Nice people everywhere. I would definitely recommend this home.

We can't say enough about the beauty and perfection of this gorgeous home. It was a wonderful and memorable stay-- totally spotless throughout, every amenity you could want, and a spectacular view. The location is perfect, so private in a quiet neighborhood setting right on the water. The beach was excellent for the kids. We all enjoyed early morning strolls along the bay, watching the wildlife and skipping stones. It's like a secret little haven on the Cape, no traffic, just the right distance off of Route 6 so you can get away from it all, but without being too isolated. It was so convenient. We visit the Cape about 3-4 times a year, and this stay has definitely been the highlight of the past few years! John was awesome to deal with, very informative and quick to answer any inquiries. Thanks for the memorable experience, John!

Having moved to the USA (Boston) a year ago this was our first (of many) trips to the Cape, we took a chance and booked to take my parents and two children (6 and 9) in April. I have to say we really lucked out with the weather for April and had an amazing "out of season" vacation on the Cape with very little traffic, and deserted beaches! Booking the house through John was very easy and he was very helpful and replied to emails and questions promptly. The house is in a beautiful in an unusual top of hill position with stunning views over Wellfleet where you see the most amazing sunsets. The house is very nicely furnished and the kitchen living area is very well done. The Master suite is beautiful and waking up to that view made for a real treat. The only tiny negative I have is that there is no bathroom on the second floor and the stairs and quite steep, so very young or older people may feel like they would prefer the downstairs bedroom. The house is in a great location and a lovely walk round the beach to Wellfleet which has a useful shop and several great restaurants. Wellfleet itself is very well positioned as no where is a very long drive. We went Whale watching in Provincetown which was a fantastic experience, and for a family bike ride from Orleans along the old rail road. We look forward to returning to Wellfleet in future years and would highly recommend John's house.

We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot for a vacation. Situated at the end of a quiet, dead-end road overlooking Wellfleet harbor, the house has fantastic views of the harbor. The house is the type of Cape Cod home you would expect to see on a postcard, beautiful inside and out. It is also perfectly located as Wellfleet is centrally located on the outer cape. Everything on the outer cape is within a 20 minute drive of John's house. We enjoyed short drives to restaurants, shops, and of course the beaches. When we didn't feel like driving, we just walked along the beach to Wellfleet and explored the town. John provided a wealth of information on where to go and what to see. We made a point of spending our evenings either on the second floor deck or the private beach watching the sunset almost every evening. John was professional and obviously detail orientated as the house was very clean and decorated nicely. We will vacation at this house again next year and would recommend a stay here to anyone.

Everything about our stay was perfect! The house, working with John and the Cape! This was our second time staying at the Glennon property and once again it did not disappoint! John was an absolute dream to work with. He is both professional and friendly, offering excellent advice on places to visit and things to do. The house is beautiful (a quintessential Cape Cod vacation home) and is central to a variety of fun thins to do on the Cape. This vacation we spent time kayaking on Gull Pond, biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, exploring on Indian Neck beach and whale watching in P-Town. We have already scheduled our return trip for next year, and this time we are staying for two weeks. One was just not enough! Thanks so much to John and his family for maintaining an amazing vacation home and for sharing it with all of us! The Affolter Family

Renting a house you have never seen can be a haunting experience. My daughter and I recently did this and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Dealing with John Glennon who was most helpful with his suggestions, recommendations of places to see, beaches to wander and restaurants to go to made our visit to the Cape a joyful experience. If you like to cook - this is your place! A fully equipped kitchen that made cooking there a pleasure. You want a clean house - you have it. It is certainly a comfortable house for adults but a family would certainly appreciate all there is to enjoy. The views from the rooftop deck, out to the harbor, are ever changing. Don't forget to schedule your day to be there for the sunsets. They are magnificent! Thanks, John, for being so welcoming, sharing your knowledge of Wellfleet and your friendly suggestions helped to give us a special time together, in a special place and certainly a time to remember We hope to return in 2012.

The Glennon house was the perfect place for our Cape Cod honeymoon! The house was immaculate, comfortable, and serene. We enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast on the second floor deck, looking out at the water. The remodeled kitchen is gorgeous and was fully stocked with everything you’d need. The house is in a convenient location: an easy drive to Provincetown, and also to the National Seashore parks and beaches. John Glennon was so helpful throughout the entire process and promptly responded to all our questions. He also gave us lots of great advice on restaurants, day trips, and more. This was our first time Cape Cod, and we plan on coming back again, and will definitely choose this house! - Anthony and AsheLee

We rented the Glennon’s house for a 3-day week-end. John was a pleasure to deal with as we made arrangements. The house was just perfect for our needs: very well maintained, bright, views on the water, in a quiet area, real "cape vacation" feeling. The location is really perfect as well: access to a beach, 5 minutes away from downtown Wellfleet by car and some of the Cape's best beaches, great small food stores around. We'll be back!

Friends and I spent the Memorial Day Weekend at this wonderful house in Wellfleet Mass. The condition of the house was superior upon arrival. We were thrilled with the large screened in deck off the living area and the beautifully updated kitchen. The second floor deck off the master bedroom offers spectacular views of the harbor. I especially enjoyed being able to access Wellfleet Center by way of Uncle Tim's bridge, a wonderful walk. We had an outstanding vacation. I would highly recommend this property.

Let me start by saying all four of us were impressed before we entered your place in Wellfleet. The location was extremely convenient to everything. Then upon entrance it got even better.....The new kitchen is bright, well laid out and all the right stuff you need to cook --breakfast, lunch and supper. Jack Levitt, a retired contractor made note of the craftsmanship in both bathrooms. He's not much on commenting so I would take this as a very high compliment. The outdoor deck on the second floor was spectacular...everyday from 4 till 6 we watched over the harbor. We never had the need to use the screened in porch located underneath but it too is spacious and has the furniture to make it a very relaxing and useable room.... Last but not least the outdoor shower....I was the only one to use it so they don't know what they're missing....I used it everyday and I will/have put that on my list of things to do at my house....thank you very much.....ps we plan to be back next year around the same time....Rick

Dear John, I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had when we rented your Wellfeet home. The house is just beautiful with spectacular views and the location is perfect for a nice walk into town or for getting easily to other places on the Cape. The kids had a great time exploring the shore by the house and Tyler and I loved our evenings out on the upper deck. Thanks again so much for all your help with everything, including excellent recommendations on where to eat, swim and explore! You really helped to make our visit very special!

"We had the opportunity to stay at Mr. Glennon's home in Cape Cod recently and were delighted with our experience. The location is great, it's close to almost everything: the Bay, the sea shores, the ponds, Provincetown and many other attractions. The house is more than comfortable; we were 2 families with a total of 4 children. But the heart and soul of this beautiful home is clearly its screened in porch where we spent most of our time.
Finally, the process of renting the home went very smoothly with Mr. Glennon. Dealing with him was a pleasure and he gave us some great tips on the main activities in Cape Cod."

This Wellfleet house rental was great for my family with young children. Views are beautiful from the upper deck, and the lower deck is screened in which was great if it ever got buggy. My nephews spent quite a bit of time with the ping pong table downstairs, and it gave them something to do on the rainy days we had. The outdoor shower really makes me feel like I'm on vacation…we hardly ever used the indoor one!
The location is great and the house is close to many beautiful ocean and bayside beaches I also loved the Wellfleet freshwater lakes which are also great for kids.
The kitchen was newly remodeled this year and all kitchen dishes, utensils, etc are provided which made it really easy to dine in, even a brand new dishwasher. There are also many restaurant options available if you don't want to use the kitchen at all.
Then renter, John Glennon, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very friendly and answered all of my emails right away. He provided lots of information on the area, and also kindly returned our security deposit right away. This was our first time renting and he happily led us right through it.

In all the years we've "escaped to The Cape," John Glennon's property has proven to be the best! The location of the beach below & Wellfleet Harbor are incredible positives given our interest in kayaking & swimming. The house is pristine and allows for multiple "spaces" for all of us. The "upper deck" overlooking the harbor is my favorite with incredible sunsets or that morning cup of coffee.
The screened porch for large dinners, pool table & ping pong, give us all options especially on the rare rainy day. The ability to walk to town along the beach & Uncle Tim's Bridge add to the convenience of the location.John Glennon is superb to deal with and leaves nothing to chance. In dealing with him over the years he's moved from "owner" to friend. On behalf of my entire family I heartily recommend the property and hope to return next summer.
Gregg Doonan, Madison CT. Vacationed August 2012
Our family has been renting homes on Cape Cod and the Islands for over 25 years, and the Glennon home has been our favorite for a number of reasons. The home itself is lovely, very clean, well maintained and a brand new kitchen. The large upstairs deck with views of the water and Wellfleet harbor provides a wonderful place for morning coffee and a peaceful place to end your day with beautiful sunsets. The huge screened in porch invites memorable dinners with friends and family ---- bug free. A big plus is the location which is a 15 minute walk along the water to the town of Wellfleet - without ever having to deal with Rt 6.
Working with John is a pure delight. He is organized, highly responsive and true to his word. We hope someday to meet him in person.
Thanks for everything,

Our stay at John Glennon's Wellfleet home simply exceeded all expectations. John was a pleasure to deal with and was more than helpful in providing suggestions on things to do in the area, places to eat, etc. As parents of a one-year old, it was extremely helpful to be in a home that was 'baby proofed'. We used the high chair the entire week of our stay and the baby gates were a big help as well. The house is located at the end of a very quiet, peaceful street. The views from the upstairs deck are simply amazing - we saw gorgeous sunsets every night. The screened in porch downstairs was a nice feature as well and we spent our mornings relaxing out there. The high-def television is a nice feature, the updated kitchen was fantastic and the queen bed upstairs was very comfortable. Perhaps the nicest feature is the location - Wellfleet is a quiet, relaxing place to spend the week, yet you’re also still in close proximity to other Cape Cod towns. This was our first visit to the Cape and we had the opportunity to drive to several other towns but found Wellfleet to be the nicest, most relaxing of them all. And the beach access was wonderful as well - just 100 yards or so from the front door of the house and you can be out walking along the water. We will definitely return and would highly recommend this home to anybody else wanting to stay in a quiet, comfortable home for the week.

Our friends and us have been looking for awhile now for a place we can all regularly and repeatedly come together and visit while our families grow -- and after visiting the Wellfleet House, we now know where we'll be coming for hopefully years to come.
We instantly fell in love with the house the second we arrived. We already knew we were in for a great trip and visit with all of John's helpful tips, information and patient efforts to coordinate the trip with us prior to our arrival -- but were blown away with the beautiful home, location and amenities. There is truly something to be said when the pictures on the website doesn't do the house justice. And so kid friendly and family orientated too! As one of our companion's had said, by far this is the coziest, convenient and obviously well-loved place we have stayed at since we started making our annual trips. John and Cheri's pride in their home shows.
From the beautiful screened in porch which permitted us a sheltered place to have early morning brisk breakfasts and late night gabs over wine, to the beautiful kitchen which permitted us a place to make gourmet meals and upstairs sun deck for the most beautiful sunsets, the house had everything we were looking for and more. Steps from WellfleetHarbor, two seconds from the Village of Wellfleet and a quick drive to everything the Cape has to offer, this place is ideal for a memorable visit to the Cape. We only wished we had planned more time!
And for the uninitiated to Wellfleet and the Cape, John's recommendations and tips for what to do and where to go was priceless. We wouldn't have discovered all of the gems that Wellfleet has to offer without John's help. We think that Mac's Shack and the Bakery at South Wellfleet General Store might think of us as new town regulars given how much we visited the place -- which we wouldn't have found if not for John's suggestions.
Are we coming back? Absolutely and with no reservations. And my wife and I might secretly do so without telling our friends, as well. Who says we can't make multiple visits to this wonderful place?
Thanks John and Cheri!
