Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price announced an opportunity to lease the cottage located at 222 Ocean View Drive in Wellfleet.  Superintendent Price said, "We lease many of the structures owned by the National Park Service. It's a great way to maintain the houses rather than watch them decay over time."

The leasing program allows the National Park Service to enter into short term and long term leases with non-profits and members of public. Through this program the properties are maintained and preserved while allowing for members of the public to enjoy the national seashore experience.

For questions about the property or leasing application contact Marcel Mousseau at Cape Cod National Seashore at 508-957-0743.

Cape Cod

In the mid-19th century, Henry David Thoreau walked the Atlantic coastline of Cape Cod, recording his adventures in his narrative "Cape Cod". To literally follow in Thoreau’s footsteps today would require scuba gear. Cape Cod’s Outer Beach sees an average erosion rate of close to 4 feet per year.
