I have just finished my 4th visit to Gull Cottage B&B. It was as wonderfully relaxing and fun as the first time. The Boathouse is like a studio apartment equipped with a kitchenette and table, livingroom area and queen sized bed with bathroom. The space is roomy and cozy, on the confluence of 2 freshwater kettle ponds. It's a mile... More

We were thrilled when we were able to secure a stay in mid-August at Gull Cottage. Randy and Pat are fantastic hosts. They can't do enough for you during your stay. Breakfast is always delicious. Ask to try the baked eggs with veggies; it was great. The studio apartment above the boat house is perfectly appointed and so comfortable. I... More

Very relaxing, off the beaten track, surrounded by ponds and nature. Totally quiet. Cottage is tastefully decorated, clean, and comfortable on 2nd floor with a couch, chairs, table, small kitchenette, minifrig. Small deck but cannot really see the nearby pond. Excellent breakfast served by friendly and helpful hosts at their house next door to the cottage. It's down a narrow... More

The little boat house on the ponds... Quiet but close to everything. Gracious hospitality and wonderful conversations with our hosts, Randy and Pat. Superb meals. Clean and large well kept studio room. We even cooked lobster on our own. Incredible getaway! Not ocean front but pond beach is a stone's throw away (on the property) and is gorgeous with clean...

I had a quality experience at Gull Cottage B&B. The apartment on the second floor of boat house is small, but has everything you need. Clean, well equipped and maintained. The innkeepers are well-traveled, educated people, not pushy but if you get them talking have interesting stories to tell over breakfast. Speaking of breakfast - outstanding! Amazing fresh fruit and... More

This was my 3rd stay at Gull Cottage and it was as wonderful as the last ones! Pat and Randy are kind and generous hosts who are always happy to recommend local attractions or restaurants. Pat makes the most delicious, filling breakfasts, beautifully presented on their screened porch. I love walking to the beach or wandering the back sandy roads... More

Great place off the beaten path. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable. Plenty of room for a couple. I would advise against a third person - it would be tight. The owners are LOVELY. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Pat bought bran flakes for my husband because that's all he eats... More

Unfortunately, the road to Gull Cottage is a public town road and its condition is entirely up to the whims of the town of Wellfleet. We have no control over the maintenance of it or the effects of the weather on it. In our correspondance with our prospective guests, we warn them that the road is a challenge and that... More

Nature retreat it is, but Gull Cottage is much more. Pat and Randy have created a welcoming haven for visitors of every sort—fox, humming birds, screech owls, migrating Tennessee warbler, humans—all of us are happy to return. This is our third year.

You're the only guests of Pat and Randy, staying in a large "boathouse" with a mini kitchen, deck, skylight and stocked with kitchen items and about 1000 books! The bed was extremely comfortable. Small private beach on Gull Pond, which is very beautiful. I would recommend renting a kayak to explore the three connected ponds or a Sunfish, all available... More
