National Park Service Announces Short Term Lease Opportunity
Contact: George Price, Superintendent, 508-957-0739
Original release date: 7/3/2012
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 one bedroom cottage at 222 Ocean View Drive has been substantially updated and will be available to the public starting May 2013. 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.
For questions about the property or leasing application contact Marcel Mousseau at Cape Cod National Seashore at 508-957-0743.
