Welcome to Quarterboard Cottages...
From the moment you turn down the clam shell driveway overlooking Wellfleet Harbor you get the feeling that you are back to the Cape Cod that Patti Page made famous in her 1960’s rendition of “Old Cape Cod.”
Family owned and operated since 1948, Quarterboard Cottages is one of those precious Cape Cod hideaways where life takes a slower pace. Wake up to nature’s alarm clock, shorebirds fishing for breakfast and you realize that you’ve stepped back in time.
Located on the shore of Chipman’s Cove, with a view across to Wellfleet harbor Quarterboard Cottages is the ideal place to sit back and watch the boats leaving the harbor for a days fishing as the younger set take to the water in craft of all types.
