This former hunting lodge built in 1927 has a long history on Lieutenant’s Island. The island, once known as a favorite for hunting migratory birds, is now a part of the Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Sanctuary. Crossing the bridge to the island is an experience all in itself. The beautiful marshland stretches out before you, the seagulls drop clam shells from the sky in hopes of breaking them open on the pavement, the occasional kayaker slipping through the reeds – it all evokes a sense of peace and calmness. Lieutenant’s Lodge sits on a bluff overlooking the bay. Amazing nightly sunsets from your porch or just steps away to the sandy beach below.
The house itself is a 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath (with an outdoor shower as well) which sleeps 10. The living room, dining room, full kitchen, master bedroom, master bathroom, and a large sun porch with two additional single day beds are located on the first floor. The second floor has three bedrooms and a half bath. The front bedroom looks out over the bay and offers beautiful views to wake up to each day. Outside is a huge wrap around porch with deck furniture, and all just 100 feet from your stairs to the beach. We also have bikes for your use and kayaks available as well. Linens are not included but we offer very affordable linen packages so you won’t need to pack your own.
