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."

Full details about the property including photographs, the application, length of stay, leasing rates, and instructions for applying, can be found at www.222oceanviewdrive.com or through a link on the national seashore website at www.nps.gov/caco/parkmgmt/ index.htm.
