Aunt Sukie’s Bayside B & B in Wellfleet is the sort of place that makes you wish you could unpack your bags and stay all summer. And there are few places on the Cape that elicit that response from me. It’s rare to find a bayside retreat with this sort of privileged perch — and innkeepers willing to share it!
Don’t let the cute front fool you; there is a more modern addition tacked onto this 1830s structure and it’s quite spacious.
There are three guest rooms, one in the “antique” section of the house and the other two upstairs in the “contemporary’” section. Over on the antique side, the room is outfitted with lovely, err, antiques 🙂 — and features a fireplace and patio.
Both “contemporary” rooms have private second floor decks that call out at dawn and dusk. Really, again, why would anyone ever leave?
All have sublime views of Wellfleet Bay, which is what everyone comes to the Cape to enjoy. Take the short walk across a boardwalk marsh and you’ll find yourself at the inn’s private bay beach — maybe even watching folks harvesting oysters at low tide. Did someone say I have to check-out someday?
Breakfast is a nourishing treat — between the camaraderie and cuisine.
Looking for more room or privacy? Sue and Dan Hamar have just smartly renovated and outfitted the adjacent cottage (see the three captioned photos in the slideshow) that takes full advantage of the stunning location. They could not have done a better job. It’s rented by the week — reserve early or risk disappointment.
